About Susan Alba

We live in Spain and own and manage Casita de Alba, Casa Almareka and Casa Susana. We do all our own maintenance and cleaning to ensure our villas are in perfect condition and spotlessly clean for our guests. I was a City Business woman until I found Casita de Alba in Jesus Pobre and from that day I knew I wanted to live there. I put my heart and soul into reforming the villa and made it into a luxurious, comfortable, welcoming home. We have had some wonderful times with many clients who come regularly over the years and who have enjoyed our properties.

Susan Alba purchased this villa in 1997

Why Susan Alba chose Dénia

I bought Casa Almareka in 1987 and then Casita de Alba in 1997. Having been a Travel Rep for several years I completely fell in love with Jesus Pobre and the surrounding area and dreamt of being able to own my home in Spain. Both villas are located close to The Montgo Nature Reserve so ideal for walking and observing the abundance of beautiful flowers and the scenery yet only a short drive to the wonderful beaches of Javea or Denia The village is near so easy for everyday needs and when in need of a livelier time you have bars, clubs, markets also only a short drive away. There is the 5 star La Sella Golf Course, horse riding and water sports so there is something for everyone. The villa is in a quiet, secluded location yet between Alicante and Valencia. Ideal for flights.

What makes this villa unique

Casita de Alba is full of charm and character with a fully equipped kitchen for entertaining in winter or a unique Spanish oven and BBQ for dining alfresco in summer. There are sun loungers, tables and chairs on the terrace and the pool is really beautiful and secluded. It is the ideal location for families or for those wishing to enjoy a romantic break. This is a wonderful villa for a long winter let or for the Christmas period as it is warm and cosy with a fantastic kitchen. The area is peaceful, tranquil and the ideal retreat to enjoy the magnificent pool, views and the sun. You can walk to the village if you want to sample the local restaurants or just a short drive away you can find beaches, bars, restaurants, markets and so much more.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is not just a holiday villa this is a real luxury home. Beautiful. We cannot recommend highly enough and have already booked for next year.

A destination in it's own right!

  • 5 of 5

This villa is one of the best we have stayed in for comfort, for being so well equipped, for the view, for the location but most of all for the tranquility it surrounds you with. I think the villa casts a spell on you after a couple of days and it becomes very hard to leave. Susan was very caring and helpful aiming to give us the best possible holiday experience. The coast is quite busy and hectic and the villa is a real haven to escape back to. Being within walking distance to the village of Jesus Pobre is another bonus, with some great restaurants and the best Sunday market we've experienced.

Beautiful tranquility

  • 5 of 5

A superb villa in a tranquil location yet only a few miles from Javea. The local village of Jesus Pobre is only a 10 minute walk, with a handful of bars and restaurants. The villa itself is so well appointed, more than enough crockery/glassware etc, of good quality. Lovely comfy sofas for cooler evenings, with peaceful grounds, well lit at night and a beautiful view. Susan & Nick were wonderful hosts and made us feel so welcome when we arrived. Absolutely no hesitation in recommending this villa for a peaceful family holiday.

Fantastic Hiqhy Quality Home from Home!

  • 5 of 5

This is our third time at Casita de Alba and the whole family loves the coming to this very special home from home in an excellent part of Spain!

A Beautiful restored farmhouse with a crystal clear large warm pool set in tranquil gardens overlooking the valley towards Denia and the stunning Massis del Montogo mountain in the Montogo National Park.

The owner Sue with Nick put a lot of care and attention into ensuring the villa and pool are maintained to a very high standard and that you have a great holiday. We always do thanks to their professionalism and care.

Casita del Alba is secluded enough to relax away from the stresses and strains of life but close enough to Denia and Javea by (10 mins by car or taxi) to enjoy the hustle and bustle of Charming Spanish seaside towns and beaches. If you prefer a more authentic Spanish experience then the village of Jesus Pobre is a 3 minute walk away with some good bars and restaurants. We particularly like the bars and restaurants in Playa De Arenal near Javea as the quality of food and service is always really good. Be warned though in the summer by 20:00 it can be difficult to park so get there early.

My family and I highly recommend a stay at Casita de Alba as you wont be disappointed and If like us you enjoy the good things in life you will be back time and time again!

Thanks Sue and Nick for another fantastic holiday!

Fantastic villa

  • 5 of 5

The villa is in a perfect secluded location with a fantastic pool and outdoor area, shaded pergola, etc,. It is very well equipped, clean, everything worked as it should, and Sue and Nick were only a call away if there were any issues. For people who want a peaceful and tranquil private villa where you can walk into the local traditional village, or alternatively go into Javea or Denia for a wider choice of eateries, bars, etc, then you would struggle to find a better location. Highly recommended!

A little piece of heaven!!

  • 5 of 5

Probably the best villa we have ever stayed in!!! Nothing at all like holiday accommodation, more like home from home. Susan really has thought of everything,

Decoration, furnishings, crockery, bedlinen, towels etc are all of a high standard.

Pool area is exceptional as is the pool, with glorious views and fabulous planting. If staying out of season as we were central heating is also available if required.

Huge TV with all the sky channels.

Totally private but yet there are other properties close by.

We didn't want to leave!!

From the minute we pulled up we felt chilled, calm and very spoiled! Sue and Nick have made a magical place that doesn't feel like a holiday house, it feels like a home, your own home! We've stayed in many places of varying conditions but nowhere beats Villa Alba. Cleanliness is outstanding, facilities are again outstanding, they have thought of everything. The pool and gardens are glorious, private, beautiful and with quality sunloungers and chairs it really is a special place you're staying in!!!

We will be returning and for longer next time!
