The villa: The Villa was newly constructed in 2006 and I have owned and managed the rentals from new.
Out and about: A car is not a necessity as bars, banks, beaches and supermarkets are all within walking distance (e.g. beach 20minutes, supermarket 10minutes walk) or you can take the local bus service that runs a continuous looped service arond the town and beach, the bus stop is located a few minutes from the villa. The main bus service links the town to most of the neighbouring locations i.e Alicante, Santa Pola etc where from here you can ctach buses to all over spain. From experience to truly make the most of your holiday we recommend car rental for total freedom and flexibility. Car Hire is either available at the airport or from many rental companies in the town itself.
Gran Alacant: Gran Alacant having undergone major expansion to cater for holiday makers and ex-pats over the past ten years is still rapidly expanding to provide further communities and facilities. As such throughout the town there are a number of construction projects and areas that are rapidly expanding.

About Stewart Braddon
From the UK, living in Essex. Graduated from flight school in 2005 as a Commercial Pilot. My two most favourite holiday destinations are Costa Blanca in Spain and Florida in USA, hence buying holiday homes in both locations.
Stewart Braddon purchased this Villa in 2006
Why Stewart Braddon chose Gran Alacant
I have lived in different parts of Spain for work and study and when deciding on where I would like a house it was easy! Gran Alacant. With many and affordable flights from the UK to Alicante, the villa only 10 minute away by car from the airport means no long drives or transfers once you arrive. Gran alacant provides many varying restaurants, has a beach, and is centrally located between Alicante centre and Santa Pola.
What makes this Villa unique
Large private swimming pool, quite residential area, and also use of the private community pool and shallow kids pool via key access with grassed area and children's play area just a short stroll from the villa if wanted.

We spent a week in this fantastic villa.
I strongly recommend this villa as it has everything you need. The shops and restaurants are all close to hand or you can just laze around the pool. Car hire is not accentual but I would recommend one. Contact the owner and he will forward you on the names. The owner's representatives in Spain are fantastic and will deal with any problems.
Enjoy your stay at this fantastic Villa.
Pictures do not do it justice!
Family of 4 just arrived home.
I have a very depressed 9 and 6 y/o!
On arrival we were greeted by Martin and Donna who were easily available by phone and genuinely lovely people. Martin gave us all the local info we needed for our stay and 2 sets of villa keys.
There is a blue folder with even more local info (highly recommend you check it out as we found some true gems in there)
Was a little dubious why there were no pics of the 3rd master bedroom, which was lovely, although not a huge room, it has an en suite and an amazing rooftop terrace with panoramas of the surrounding countryside, although this seems a little wasted without a table and chairs up there, really is an awesome feature of this villa.
Although we opted for a rental car there is a bus and land-train type thing that covers the whole of the Gran Alacant area for further exploration.
Definite must see is the Thursday Market in Gran Alicant. Its like a scaled down Benidorm market, which has all the usual "designer" bags, football kits, pool toys and local produce.
Supermarkets restaurants and all sorts of entertainment all within walking distance (10 - 15 min stroll with two kids who love to drag their feet!)
The Pool is amazing! not too deep at the deep-end, private and not really overlooked and is cleaned by a local firm on the Wednesday.
I honestly can't put into words how relaxing and fun our stay here was, and have made some truly unforgettable family memories.
Thanks Stewart and Team
Stayed here for 12 nignits family of 4 with teenage children.Villa good and clean air con very effective.Pool larger than average and very welcome in the hot weather.Sunbeds comfortable .Villa well stocked with easy read holiday books ideal for a day round the pool.Kitachen has everything you need .Didnt have a car and didn't really need one had a trusty trolley to carry shopping home in.Location excellent a 10 min walk to the square and 15 to commercial centre.Supermarkets all within easy reach.Would definitely recommend this villa although I can imagine if not very mobile may struggle with steps at the front .Gardens well tended and flowers were in bloom.Plenty of restaurants can recommend BIg Alls for breakfast and evening cocktails and The pub for music bingo.On the commercial centre we tried many restaurants and found eat fresh and the Pixxa restaurant excellent,the American music bar great for burgers and ribs if you fancy a more relaxed vibe.We had a great time and would definitely return
We had a wonderful holiday at this villa & would definitely recommend it. The villa was larger than expected from the photos & had everything we needed in it. The pool was fantastic to. Not to far from shops and local bus service into Santa Pola & Alicante. Ideal for those wanting a family holiday.
Great villa in a perfect loaction
Superb villa and pool area, we knew the weather was going to be changeable in April but we still managed to use the pool and our 2 boys loved all the space to run around outside.The villa is well equipped and very clean, the shops are close and the beach is only a short distance by car so its perfectly located.
Just back from a fabulous 2 week stay at Stewarts villa in July! After package holidays & last years stay at an apartment in Gran Alacant, this is definitely one of the most relaxing holidays we have had.
The villa is is in a great location (halfway walk between the GA centre and the Carabasi bars. As a family with an 8 year old, it took us around 15 min to walk to these areas & a 30 minute walk to the beach.
Having a safe in the villa was a main feature of why we chose this villa & the great pool. The pool was lovely & cleaned/checked regularly throughout our stay (please be aware that the pool lights are no longer connected & working). A gardner came keep to tidy the outside area. Outside were beautiful lime trees & you were hardly overlooked by other villas. A beautiful outdoor porch contained a family table, where we ate our lunch & could you see the mountains.
Claire our key holder was absolutely fantastic & always contactable for any help that we needed. On arrival we found the oven not working & she resolved this quickly-although we ate out most nights. She also came in midway to change sheets & towels. The free wifi was an added bonus enabling us to keep in contact with family back home.
To enhance the villa facilities, an update of mattresses would be great for extra comfort.
Sadly for us we cannot return next year as the villa is already booked up. Thank you Stewart for a swift return of deposit & great holiday.
