Excellent Accommodation for our Short Break in March
Wonderful accommodation, well furnished and equipped and in an ideal location for our recent relaxing short break. Alfredo is an excellent host and thanks to him and Ian for providing free transfers to and from the airport and giving us a guided tour of Gran Alicant on our arrival. The air con / heating was a blessing at this time of year as it cooled down considerably by late evening even though we had plenty of warm sunshine during the day. The view from the roof terrace across to Alicante was quite breathtaking. There are several places to eat and drink within reasonable walking distance but in the three days of our stay we frequented the bars and restaurants in the small square within the nearby gated complex, in particular the Zest bar/restaurant and the superb Patagonian Steakhouse. If you don't want to eat out there is an excellent supermarket a few minutes walk away. We enjoyed the walk to the lighthouse viewpoint which takes about 40 minutes. We would recommend this accommodation and will no doubt return in the future
Thank you very much!
It's very rewarding to know that you found the house and the area to your satisfaction and it was a pleasure to meet you and your family.
I hope to see you soon.
Excellent short stay!!
Had a lovely short stay here recently, the place was immaculately clean and hosts were very friendly and accommodating. I Would definitely stay here again and hopefully will!
Thank you very much! I’m glad you had a great time in Gran Alacant and I hope to see you again soon. Regards Alfredo
Very good, very helpful owner, recommend.
SSW facing mid-terrace house in a quiet area, tricky to find at first but made easy by co-ordinates supplied for sat-nav. Owner offered free transport from ALC airport but we hired a car. A clean and pleasant property with everything one could require. Powerful shower!! Comfortable beds. British TV. Friendly neighbours.
English-speaking Alfredo kindly took us for a coffee and a trip in his car to point out all the local places of interest which was very helpful. Ian dealt with the keys. Thank you both for a good holiday.
Thank you very much, indeed.
It was really good to meet you and know you have been all around, exploring and visiting places. Great to know you've had a nice stay.
Another Great Stay
We are just home from a nice relaxing week at Alfredo’s house. This is our third visit and we can’t praise it enough. We like to go for long walks and plenty refreshment stops. I agree the resort is hilly but we go down the quicker steeper hills then take our time walking up the long one from the commercial centre. With it being cooler in the evenings we were out all day and headed back to the house when it got dark. Nice and warm with the heaters on, same television programmes as at home and really strong WiFi. Our favourite restaurants this time we’re Alexandria’s, Los Lunares and the Indian restaurant at the commercial centre. Alfredo is really easy to deal with and picked us up and took us back to the airport. Forgot to say thank you Alfredo for leaving us milk and bread etc. That was really helpful as the supermarkets were closed when we arrived on Sunday. There is good local bus service to get about the town and also regular buses to Alicante and Santa Pola.
Thank very very much. Once again, it's been a pleasure to have you in my house and I'm looking forward to seeing you next year!
Very best wishes,
Very clean well maintained property in a great location
Alfredo has provided everything needed for a relaxing and enjoyable stay. The house is very clean and in a great location. The views from the roof terrace are beautiful. There are plenty of bars and restaurants within walking distance . We did not hire a car as the buses were great to get to Alicante or Santa Pola for day trips. Alfredo arranged for Ian to collect us from the airport and drop us off again. This was very much appreciated as this is our first visit to this area and he was kind enough to show us around Gran alicant on the way to the property. I would have no hesitation in recommending this property to friends and family and look forward to a return visit in the future.
Thank you so much for such great comment. It's great to know that you enjoyed your stay in my house and I appreciate everything you have written.
I must thank you for leaving the house as you would your own home. This is also thoroughly appreciated.
Look forward to meeting you in the future and meanwhile very best wishes.
