Villa in Moraira, Costa Blanca, Spain - Quiet Area, Yet Close To Amenities
As self-employed people running a very small business in England, my husband and myself decided 15 years ago that we would use our savings to buy a villa in the sun, both for ourselves and to rent to holidaymakers to help with the overheads. We enjoyed speaking to prospective clients so much, and ensuring that their holidays were a success, that when we had the chance we bought a small apartment on the beach in Benidorm. We have many clients who return to our properties, and we think of them as old friends even though we have never actually met them. We are very "hands-on" owners, but we cannot praise our staff in Spain enough. Nothing is too much trouble, and Jo and Adam in Moraira, and Claire and Dawn in Benidorm are available close by should any of our clients have a problem.
jenny purchased this Villa in 1998
Why jenny chose Moraira
We bought our villa in Moraira because the town itself is very attractive, with so many amenities. It is also easy to reach from Alicante airport along the motorway. It is a great base for extensive sightseeing -there are so many places of interest within a relatively short drive. Valencia and Alicante cities are well worth a visit, and the smaller towns of ALtea with its blue-domed church, Javea with the church designed like a ship, and Denia with the ferry across to Ibiza, all make for an interesting day out. Guadalest and the Fonts d'Algar are a must, likewise Benidorm, a "city on the beach". We chose our villa in the exact spot in Moraira to be close to the bars, banks, supermarkets etc., all within walking distance, yet the villa itself is in a really quiet area.
What makes this Villa unique
We have tried to make our villa really family-friendly and comfortable. We provide a selection of toys and games for the children, and inflatables for the pool. As the villa itself is completely flat, we feel it is suitable for young and old alike, with plenty of enclosed space so the children can play safely. Jo and Adam, our staff in Moraira, are close by for advice by telephone, or to visit if the problem can't be resolved by phone. There are a real variety of bars and restaurants within walking distance, plus all the essential things like the supermarket and chemist etc.
Pool / Spa
100% refund for cancellations more than 60 days before check-in date.
The villa is well laid out and has everything you need for a great stay. There are plenty of restaurants and bars a short distance away and a half hour stroll takes you into the centre of Moraira with a huge selection of restaurants and pubs. Will certainly hire this villa again. David
Many thanks to this client for taking the time to post such a lovely review. I am so pleased they enjoyed their holiday in our villa, and will certainly welcome them back in the future.
Lovely villa and pool, very homely and a quite area
We had a lovely stay at this villa, it was the first time I had booked through this company and it was very easy, Jenny has put lots of information on the web page and provided excellent directions to find the property, the villa itself was very homely and had a lot of basics you often don't get in some villas. The pool is amazing and very clean and we were lucky to have fabulous weather.
The area is really nice, an easy walk into town and plenty of food shops around, a great base for discovering the area if you have a car or if you just want to chill out by the pool. Although on an 'urbanization' it was very quiet and the villa is quite private.
I would definitely recommend this villa if you are looking for somewhere to stay around Moraira and wouldn't hesitate to book it again!
What a lovely review - so pleased you enjoyed your stay at our villa. Hopefully we will hear from you again in the future. Jenny
Fantastic villa in an ideal location
Myself, husband and four children thoroughly loved this villa. We stayed for 22 nights and didn't want to come home! The villa was made for us....ample room for us all in the villa and in and around the pool. The games room was a bonus and occupied my husband and son when they couldn't stand the sun anymore!! The pool was lovely and big and used the floats provided by the owner to have races...it was kept clean and safe throughout with regular visits from the pool people. The villa was lovely and clean and had loads of little extras in the kitchen which we hadn't thought of bringing with us and we left our little bits we bought for the next user. The villa is close to the centre of Moraira about a 10minute drive and parking isn't a problem. Plenty of restaurants to choose from; a particular favourite was "Munroes" which was excellent value for money and excellent food. There is a local market every Friday which myself and a couple of my children went to every week which we picked up some bargains and a lovely chicken dinner from a stall which cost next to nothing. The villa is a fantactic base for Calpe, Benissa and as well as markets all around that area. Benidorm is around a 50min drive which has Aqualandia and Terra Mitica, again fantastic days out. Would recommend getting a joint deal rather than booking these separately.
The owner, Jenny, is excellent to deal with, extremely helpful and happy to oblige when possible. when at the villa there is a list of all people who can be contacted if there are any issues so someone is always there to help if need be. Can't say enough good things about the villa and Jenny. I would recommend a stay here to all and will defo be going back.
What a wonderful review! Myself and our people in Spain do everything to make all our clients holidays the best they can be, and comments like these make it all worth while. We like to think our villa is family-friendly, so that everyone can feel at home there, and of course Moraira with its clean beaches, restaurants to suit everyone's pocket and cuisine, shops, market and other amenities is wonderful for people of all ages. Many thanks to this client for taking the time to write such an extensive review - I very much look forward to hearing from you again in the future.
A lovely, comfortable villa in an ideal spot
We had the very good fortune to stay in this lovely, comfortable villa in May. It is in a most convenient position near to shops, restaurants, bars and supermarket. The villa itself has all that you need for an enjoyable holiday and is completely enclosed and secure for those travelling with children or, as in our case, our two little dogs. The lovely, large swimming pool is a particular highlight. We would highly recommend a stay at Casa Jenny
So pleased when our clients take the time to post a review, especially such a good one! We try hard to make our villa comfortable and a review like this shows we are getting things right!
Charming Villa with excellent facilities
We have just returned from a winter break and have to say that we had an excellent stay. The villa was perfect for us, comfortable, well equipped, warm - (with the log fire and electric heating) with a beautiful pool and spacious garden and lots of terraces to catch the sun. The weather this January was great during the day, but was often a bit chilly in the evenings which is why having the log fire was so good. The villa is very much 'pet-friendly' with good fencing as well as privacy from the high walls and our dog enjoyed chasing the local cats as well as the short walk to the excellent local bars and shops. The owner Jenny was very communicative, professional and supportive as were her reps on site - Jo and Adam - who could not have been more helpful. We would highly recommend this villa & Moraira.
We are always grateful when a satisfied client takes the time to post a review after their stay in our villa. Ourselves, as well as Jo and Adam, put time and effort into making sure our visitors enjoy their holiday as much as possible, and it is lovely to be appreciated. Many thanks.
Value for money.
Our stay at the villa was a happy 24 days,our hosts were accommodating with our arrival and departure, and can not praise the couple who manage the house and look after the pool,my two boys enjoyed the freedom of using a pool as much as they wanted and the pool man was extremely friendly and helpful in every way.
The villa itself is large enough for a large with plenty of space for everyone the garden is large and the pool is probably one of the largest on the estate,the local shop,bar and newsagents were within a 10 min stroll.
The property was clean and tidy and had plenty of everything for your holiday.
The bonus of having the washing machine and a great area for drying it made the stay all the easier.
I'm gutted we cannot book for next year, we as a family thoroughly enjoyed our vacation and would head back there in the future.
Moraira itself is 5 mins away or a taxi was roughly 8 euros,where you can find endless cafe and restaurants that go from 10 euro menu of the day up to the amazing D'gust restaurant in the square,The Ni Hao Chinese was excellent value for money to.
Many thanks to these clients for taking the time to post such a wonderful review. We love it when our guests have so obviously had a great holiday - that is our aim of course. Jo and Adam, who look after our villa and pool, go above and beyond to make our holidaymakers welcome and comfortable, and it is nice to know their hard work is appreciated. And Moraira is such a charming town, and a good base for sightseeing the many attractions the Costa Blanca offers. So sorry we were already booked for their holiday period next year, but hopefully we will hear from them again in the future.
Several blue-flag beaches in area. Nearest is in Moraira, a 10 minute drive away. Also El Portet, just an extra few minutes further on. Beautiful sand for the children, with beach games and play areas also. Moraira with its beach is about a half-hour downhill walk from the villa, and back again would be an extra 15 mins uphill walk!
Alicante is the nearest airport, an hour's drive away. Car hire is recommended, but not essential, with "resort-hopper" companies now operating in the area. The cost of a taxi from the airport is approximately £90 each way. Valencia Airport is also about an hour's drive. Murcia is approximately 2 hours away.
Moraira is the nearest town, about 1 mile away. Benidorm is about a half-hour's drive. Also within a short drive are Javea, Denia, Calpe, and Altea, all well worth a visit. Guadalest is an absolute must with its stunning views and castle to explore, and the Fonts d'Algar, where you can bathe in pools and waterfalls, are in the same area, all within an hour's drive.
In close proximity to the villa there are several eating places, ranging from English breakfasts, pizzas and snacks to more up-market restaurants. Within a 5-mile radius there are literally hundred's of eating establishments, of all nationalities and cuisines. There are also a fish-and-chip shops. There is a supermarket on the estate, with other, larger ones within a 10 minute drive. There are several banks in Moraira itself, and currency exchanges too. There is a chemist just a 2 minute drive away, and in Spain the dispensing personnel are more highly trained than in Britain, and can offer advice to save a visit to the doctor. But should an emergency arise, doctors are within a 5-minute drive, and also dentists in Moraira. All the professionals speak English, or have a translator close by. Also on the estate there is friendly English bar with wi-fi which serves breakfast and other tasty food until 4 pm, a gastro sports bar with tabletop games for the children, gaming machines for the adults and an absolutely HUGE TV screen showing current sports. They also serve good food mornings and evenings. with table About a 20 minute walk downhill is a tennis club with bar/restaurant which has a crazy golf facility and a tennis club with bar. So you don't have to walk far for things to do. There are many bars in Moraira, or you can just go for a stroll as the Spanish do, along the beach, or to the harbour with its expensive yachts, or take the kids to the fair for a treat. For the more active, there is go-carting, scuba diving, canoeing and horse-riding etc There are many fiestas in Moraira, and the Moors and Christians parade early in June is totally spectacular, with a grand firework display later.
Benidorm is full of activities, with Aqualandia, a water park for those hot summer days, Cactuslandia close to it full of exotic birds and plants, and Terra Mitica, a huge theme park for all the family. Among the many theme pubs and bars in Benidorm, is Benidorm Palace for that special night out, a truly cosmopolitan experience. If you don't want to drive, taxis are available, or you can book to go by coach.
Also in Benidorm is a new shopping mall, La Marina, with designer shops, bowling alley, and cinema with English films on certain days.
