About John Thompson
I live here with my wife and 10 year old son. We have made so many good friends of all nationalities and regularly get together for BBQs at our homes and spend many afternoons and early evenings down on the nearby beaches of Granadella and Portichol just chatting and enjoying home made tapas and a glass of wine while the kids play together. We adore life here and have really fallen in love with the country and it's lifestyle.
John Thompson purchased this Villa in 2012
Why John Thompson chose Jávea
We chose Javea simply because it has everything. From the many wonderful beaches, breathtaking views and walks, plenty of bars and restaurants to the very well stocked and very well priced supermarkets that offer everything you could ever need and, more importantly, the best climate in the whole world.
What makes this Villa unique
Our home is perfectly located being in a quiet Cul de Sac and only a few minutes drive to the nearby beaches of Granadella and Barracca. Arenal beach is only a 6 minute drive away. There are 6 sunbeds, parasols and plenty of shaded seating where you can relax and while away the hours reading a book from our own collection. The kids can play ball games etc on the turfed areas around the villa. Our son has a few inflatables that he says you can borrow during your stay.
Pool / Spa
100% refund for cancellations more than 60 days before check-in date.
We've just had a 2 week stay at this villa and can honestly say it is the best we've stayed at. Very well equipped and plenty of space for a family of 8 to spread out across! The pool is definitely the highlight, it is very deep at one end so perfect for my children who loved diving down for seal sticks. Beautiful garden surrounding the villa and around the main terrace.
Definitely need a car, it's not just a short stroll down to a beach. Having said that, three supermarkets and two beaches are within a couple of minutes drive with easy free parking. Our favourite was Arenal and John (owner) recommended a restaurant called Acqua for two family birthdays while there - it's definitely worth a visit. As is the Indian restaurant a couple of minutes walk from the villa, best Indian food we've tasted and worth a repeat visit or two!
We had a few teething problems as is almost always the case, however John and his property manager Nadine were able to resolve them quickly with fast communication. The only thing I would comment on is that there needs to be a manual key which can override the electric gates, we had a complete power outage and were unable to leave the villa and Nadine had to drive over to leave us her key.
This was definitely a holiday to remember. Thank you again John for all your help, and sorting out a courier for our tablet. Please pass our thanks to Nadine and Aaron for all their hard work.
Fabulous review, thank you most sincerely. Your feedback regarding the problem you encountered with the electronic gates when the supply failed and your suggestion that a gate override key would be useful is a great idea, thank you. Your praise for our Property Management team has been passed on.
Fantastic Villa, pool, area loved it all
There was nothing that you could have wanted, the pool and surrounding area was good,
I would recommend the villa and definitely would go back, lots to do around the area nice sandy beach, shops and restaurants to go too.
Never wanted the holiday to end, wished I could have stayed
What a wonderful, kind review.
So glad you enjoyed your stay in my villa.
Many, many thanks indeed.
Lovely villa with a wonderful swimming pool and attractive gardens.
The villa exceeded our expectations. From the initial booking, the process was smooth and communication easy. John answered all our queries promptly and once we were in Xabia Rob met us at the villa and was so helpful when one of our party had an accident.
We loved the villa, the facilities were great and everything was geared to make your holiday as easy as possible. The barbecue area was really good and we all spent many happy hours in the pool with the children.
This really is the best villa we have stayed in and the bonus was the ability to walk to bars and restaurants(good food too).
Thank you for your kind and positive feedback. We are so happy you enjoyed your stay at the villa.
As soon as we arrived we were very impressed, spacious inside and out, with plenty of areas outside to find some quiet time. Particularly enjoyed the bar area at the back with the large fridge to keep the beers and sangria cold and the big table for sitting around to enjoy them. The pool was great, one of the largest of any villa we have stayed in, in the area, so no bumping into each other on those workout swims!! The inside was well presented and equipped, the kitchen was very modern and we were impressed by the ice maker on the fridge. Another big advantage was the proximity to 2 good restaurants, an easy 5-10 minute walk to either, we especially enjoyed the Indian one. A big thank you to John for keeping in touch throughout the booking process and contactable when we arrived. The only down side was that we had to leave such a lovely villa.
The Stone family.
Greatly appreciate your positive feedback. We are delighted you enjoyed the villa and who knows, perhaps we could have the pleasure of accommodating you once again in the near future.
BEST FAMILY HOLIDAY EVER..!
Great communication from the owner John, from the moment we booked, during the stay and after we arrived back home.
The villa was superb in every way, location, facilties and very clean..
On arrival we found the villa was accessed via a remote controlled gated entrance in a lovely quiet residetial area, very private.
The villa itself certainly has the wow factor, the photos as good as they are dont do it justice, its simply stunning..
It easily accomodated all 7 of us with plenty of room to spare.
It was well appointed with a large family sized kitchen, several bathrooms and bedrooms, also a large split level living and dining area, not to mention the luxury master bedroom upstairs..
Truely home from home.
The icing on the cake for us was the immense VERY PRIVATE POOL, perfect for family fun or serious sun bathing.
This was our 1st family holiday abroad and the BEST FAMILY HOLIDAY EVER..!
We did not want to leave, everything was perfect..
Thank you for a wonderful holiday in your beautiful villa.
luxury half term break
My wife and I spent May half term with our son, daughter in law and two grandchildren in this wonderful villa. It was beautifully presented and superbly equipped with everything to make the holiday exceptional. John, the owner, and his wife could not have been more helpful in meeting all our needs. The villa was immaculate as were the large gardens. The grandchildren loved the swimming pool while our football mad grandson, aged 5, had a fantastic time kicking a football on the astro turfed area.
On arrival, John alerted us to the fact that the gas BBQ had broken the previous day but it was replaced instantly with a new charcoal one with the coals, firelighters and lighter provided.
The villa is in a lovely, private area of Javea but is some way from the town centre so a car would bean advantage although taxis are easily got from the centre and are reasonably priced. Javea itself is a lovely resort with a terrific beach and many restaurants on the front.
Locally, there are one or two restaurants in the area although we tended to BBQ at the villa. We were served cold beer and burgers at Jasper's bar which is within walking distance. There is a mini market near to Jasper's and an excellent supermarket about five minutes drive away.
The booking arrangements with John were very smooth and easy to do and the security deposit was returned to my bank within 24 hours of our departure.
All in all, we had a fabulous time in the villa and would not hesitate in recommending it to family and friends. Indeed, we already have. We will be back without doubt.
Great review although would like to have seen the term "astro turfed" replaced with "artificial grassed areas".
The villa is close to the 3 great beaches of Playa Portichol with it's turquoise sea and excellent snorkelling, 2 good restaurants and a 3 mins drive. Playa Granadella is a very popular picturesque cove with sunbeds, parasols, 3 restaurants and a 5 mins drive. The El Arenal's sandy crescent bay is very popular with it's shallow waters extending some way out to sea and so ideal for children. There are water sports, sunbeds, parasols and a good variety of restaurants, shops and bars along it's promenade.
The villa is situated in the upmarket resort of Javea and is approximately a 1 1/4 hour drive north from Alicante Airport and a 1 1/2 hour drive south from Valencia Airport. Both of which receive economy airline companies from the majority of UK airports.
The main area of Javea is approximately 7 minutes drive from the villa. Denia, with it's ferries to Ibiza and Majorca is a 20 minute drive. The picturesque resort of Moraira with it's many beaches, shops, restaurants and bars is a 20 minute drive. The beautiful Jalon valley is a 35 minute drive. Calpe with its famous rock is a 30 minute drive. Pretty Altea is 35 minutes and Benidorm which offers a huge variety of tourist activities, attractions, theme parks etc is only 40 a minute drive away.
The villa is in a very tranquil location but also benefits from having 4 good restaurants, bars, newsagent and small supermarket being a short stroll away. Two very well stocked supermarkets are also close by being only 3 minutes away by car.
