About Joan Moorhouse
My husband and I purchased the Villa in 1989. Over the years we have added to the property, making it a joy to stay in. During the sunnier days (which are many) most of the time is spent outside and so the addition of our outside kitchen and dining area has been wonderful. Sometimes we go down onto the patio for breakfast and stay all day. We are retired now, so enjoy the quiet life that the villa brings, but if we want wonderful food and exciting company the Villamartin Plaza is around 20 minutes walk away.
Joan Moorhouse purchased this Villa in 1980
Why Joan Moorhouse chose Orihuela
When we bought we didn't know the area, but we knew we wanted a property in a residential area, within 10 minutes drive of the beach. We also wanted to be able to walk to shops and restaurants and the villa is perfectly situated for all this. It enjoys the privacy of a detached property and the private pool and patio is a haven of tranquility. Within 20 minutes you can be in the countryside enjoying real Spain and the nearby town of Torrevieja is certainly worth a visit.

Another amazing hoilday, second time around, it was just as fantastic as the first time. A home from home with the added extra of the sun brilliant clean pool & of course Sunshine Fm.
We have become so attached to the Villa because of where it's situated, total peace & quiet, it really does make you feel relaxed & any worries drain away.
It's also in walking distance of Morgan's bar which is a great relaxed atmosphere with the regular quiz a sense of humour is a must, also Wolfies a eating place good food even when under staffed nothing was to much trouble, Villamartin Plaza is better by car if walking is not your thing, Chadwicks the Cafe is great, friendly service, the shops around all have friendly staff whether they are Spanish or English, it really is a amazing area.
I would definitely recommend this Villa if your looking for a relaxing, chilled holiday & if life is kind to us we will like to book again next year, if we would be welcome.
All about the pool
The place is looking a little tired just need a spruce up
Good space in the villa but a bit cluttered with personal things
The pool is great although the furniture needs replacing not enough sun loungers
We did not use the outside kitchen thought it needed a good clean
Think a car is necessary, Local bars ok full of ex pats not are thing really
Couple of nice restaurants in the Plaza 15 mins walk
I am trying to be honest as I can be without seeming to be someone who moans
The pool is fantastic great size to swim in
nice quite area no noise at night or during the day
We would stay again just needs a couple of tweaks to be fantastic place
Amazing pool in a quiet area
On booking this holiday the pool was the selling point and it didn't disappoint absolutely fantastic
The outside area I think needs updating although functional so outdated the BBQ has had its day RIP BBQ the covered area worked well in the heat and breakfast on the new seating was a dream
The plants some are past their life and new plant would go so far in making the pool area the dream area it could be
Inside works well the kitchen area fantastic the dishwasher make like so easy
Next time half the cloths as the washing machine is great
Big question would I come back ?
A big YES and hope to book again soon. So quiet here and a place to recharge our battery's for life back in the UK .
Thanks to Angela and Steve for the meet and great all covered to make a brilliant stay
Thank you for your lovely review and so glad you had a good holiday.
Yes I know the BBQ needs replacing. New one on its way.
Hope to hear from you soon as 2018 booking up rapidly.
Kind Regards Joan.
Mandy,Dorian,Robert and Sarah brilliant time
Excellent time had by all, the outside space is where we spent all our time that and the pool is what made it for us,big enough for 4 adults to swim comfortably,it was very hot so the shaded area was a god send without it we couldn't have been outside all day,inside was nice could just do with a bit of declutter and aircon in the bedroom would have made sleeping a lot better,we will defenatly be booking again, thankyou Joan for sharing your home with us.
Hello Mandy and family,
So glad you had a good holiday. It has been exceptionally hot this summer, so will possibly look at putting aircon in the bedroom.
Thank you for your positive review and and look forward to hearing from you in the future.
Lovely villa for a relaxing break
This villa is great if you want a quiet holiday away from the hustle and bustle of tourist area. The pool and outside kitchen is the best feature, probably needs a bit of updating but it is a great place to spend time relaxing in the sun. The only downside is the lack of aircon in the bedrooms, the fans are quite noisy and not very effective in the Spanish heat.
The villa is located about 10/15 mins walk from Villamartin Plazza and La Fuente commercial centre where you will find bars and restaurants and shops. Beaches are a few kilometres away. Public transport isn't that good in the Villamartin area, taxis are the best bet and not expensive if you want to go further afield.
Overall I would highly recommend this villa for a quiet break, it is excellent value for money, we had a great time. Also, I would like to say the property manager Steve is really helpful, gave us lots of info about the area, a really nice guy.
Thank you for your great review. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay at the Villa.
We may look at adding air con in in the bedroom for 2018, but this would have to be reflected in the rental cost, which we try and keep competitive.
There is a regular bus service which can be accessed at the end of the urbanisation. It travels to Campoamor beach one way and La Zenia on its return.
We hope you enjoyed your stay enough to consider booking again.
