About Paul & Tricia Stephens

We have been owners on the resort since 2008 and currently own 2 apartments on Jardin13 one of which we use ourselves and this property is rented out to guests.

We have recently retired after 15 years as foster carers, and will now be spending a lot more time in Spain. Paul is from Manchester and Tricia Birmingham but we have lived together in Bromsgrove, Worcestershire for over 20 years.

Paul & Tricia Stephens purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Paul & Tricia Stephens chose Costa Calida

Having stayed on the resort when the only facility was a small supermarket we have seen the resort grow from strength to strength. It is a community run resort which is well maintained on a day to day basis by the administrators. The community is quite active with Fiestas being held during the main summer holiday period.

The resort caters for people from all over Europe but the majority of owners are either Spanish or British.

It is possible to spend all of your holiday on the resort during the summer using the numerous swimming pools in the gardens, playing golf, and visiting the bars and restaurants although we would strongly recommend you get out and visit the surrounding attractions (the beaches, cities, and mountains}.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment is very close to the pool in Jardin 13, which is very handy if you have children. From the terrace and rooftop solarium there are views of the pool, garden, the resort and surrounding countryside.

Most of the resorts facilities are only a few minutes walk away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great holiday with 2 friends. We were impressed by the high standard of the apartment, and its situation overlooking the pool and gardens. We found it handily placed for exploring the local region.
