Perfect for what we needed!

  • 5 of 5

We used the property for a reunion of 20 people, although the property could have fit an extra 10 comfortably. It was perfect for what we needed, the pool is huge but in November was a little cold, which cannot be helped, and there are plenty of activities to do, including a huge football table, table tennis, and a volleyball court. Combined with the many sunbeds and the lazy chill out beds, we spent 3 days and two nights exactly how we wanted. The coach from the airport was simple enough to meet and the journey is 20 minutes. With many bars 500m away and the beach another 500m it was close enough to everything, including the supermarket by the tram or taxi (although for the main big shop the coach stopped at the supermarket en route from the airport).

Overall, the property exceeded my expectations. The owner Maria was very helpful and was thorough on check in and check out as should be expected. This is a private villa with neighbors so at 10pm the music outside does have to go inside but at this point, we all went out to the bars, perfect timing.

The BBQ area is again perfect for groups and there was so much food! We made the error of not getting the paella which would've been nice so we would recommend that.

Thank you for everything!

Amazing Villa with great vibes

  • 5 of 5

Came to this Villa with a crew of 29 18 year old's, 11 girls and 18 boys, we found our stay to be most delightful! To have stayed in a villa with such a magnificent pool was a true privilege not to mention the 22 man table football which we would quite often play prior a night out in Alicante - nights out came with mixed results so if your planning to party make sure you do your research before and be sure to pay 'John Mulligans' night club a visit as that was carnage/ best night. We very much enjoyed the garden which was very nice and many places to chill out including the 'egg' however do watch out for the exploding cactus although harmless, very scary. On the last night we took to having a BBQ which was truly marvellous, our friend Stanley cooked us a great paella which we all ate outside on the table and chairs provided. All in all the Grand Duchess was a really great villa in which memories were made and one day we hope to return.

Love this villa!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with 16 girls and 2 guys a long weekend at this villa because we were on a training camp in Alicante. The villa is amazing. Because it is designed for 30 people, there is more than enough space and furniture such as sofas, chairs, crockery etc. We really had a wonderful time! Especially the garden is very nicely landscaped. Thanks for the warm reception and good communication! Greetings, ladies Were di 1 (Tilburg, Netherlands)

When a dream becomes true

  • 5 of 5

This Villa is awesome.

We went there this summer with 30 people. Everything was very clean, not noise at all, the access was easy and it was very close to the beach, grocery stores, pubs, restaurants...

The housekeeper was very helpful and kind.

We are going back next summer for sure.

Thanks for this great experience. We really loved it.

Estancia en la Villa la Gran Duquesa

  • 3 of 5

Es una casa ideal para despedidas de soltero y días de descanso con amigos dada la amplitud e instalaciones de la casa. Más allá de esas posibilidades entiendo que la casa necesita una rehabilitación del mobiliario y de las habitaciones las cuales presentan un estado viejo y deteriorado que perjudican cualquier valoración que se pueda hacer de la casa. Evidentemente es una mansión con buena ubicación, gran piscina y tremendas posibilidades pero tengo claro que mi mujer no hubiera admitido pasar un fin de semana en tan cascadas camas y viejas habitaciones.

Por otro lado considero algo excesivo la rigurosidad de la dueña a la hora de relacionar los enseres de la casa. Si bien es comprensible exigir y relacionar objetos de valor que puedan existir en la casa, incluir y relacionar en el contrato cada uno de los objetos que existen, así como tener al llegar a la casa que cotejar cada objeto existente en la relación.

Más allá de toda cuestión, mis amigos y yo pasamos un estupendo fin de semana alojados allí. Nos bañamos, hicimos barbacoas y disfrutamos al máximo. Fue una estupenda estancia.

Owner's Response: Estimado Jose R. les agradezco mucho los comentarios realizados sobre mi vivienda y me alegro de que su estancia fuese agradable durante el alquiler, aunque debo dejar constancia de que las habitaciones de la villa "La Gran Duquesa" tienen el mismo estado que el resto de la vivienda, ya que se construyó en 1960 y toda la vivienda se reformó en el año 2009. También quería decir respecto a las camas de mi casa que se compraron en el mismo año de la reforma en 2009 y cada vez que detectamos algun colchon roto o en mal estado lo sustituimos en la mayor brevedad posible. Sobre el inventario que viene como anexo del contrato de alquiler temporal, debo decir que, de no inventariar cada mueble u objeto decorativo de la vivienda, podrian surgir problemas con los inquilinos y es lo que pretendemos evitar pero, cuando el inquilino llega a la villa, ya ha visto previamente el contrato y ha sido avisado mediante emails de que el dia de entrada a la villa debe revisar que, todo lo que indica en el inventario sea real que se encuentra en la casa y su estado. Es un método de seguridad para ambas partes pero, si el inquilino no desea revisar la vivienda previo a firmar el contrato, por lógica y sentido común, yo no obligo a nadie :) Igualmente le agradezco sus comentarios, me alegra muchisimo que disfrutasen durante su estancia alquilando mi casa :)
