Warren and Natalie Johnstone
About Warren and Natalie Johnstone
The villa was originally bought by my family in 2000 and underwent a huge renovation by my late father, to make it the perfect homely villa. In October 2012, the Villa was extensively renovated both internally and externally. The name was changed in memory of my late father, hence the name ‘Villa Ronnie’.
Warren and Natalie Johnstone purchased this Villa in 2000
Why Warren and Natalie Johnstone chose Alcossebre
The Villa was purchased to be used as a home in the sun. The area is full of natural beauty. The views are exquisite and the area the Villa is set in is very peaceful.

A Home from Home
Beautiful Villa with every comfort possible.. (wifi was better than home). Set above the town of Alcossbre with lovely views along the coastline visible from the comfort of the balcony. Comfy beds, Sky for when the kids had had enough sun, and the best chilling balcony/verander with helicopter chairs, perfect with a glass of something watching the moon rise above the sea. Car needed though as to walk into the town would be impossible at night with no street lights or paths.Overall a beautiful place to unwind, thankyou Natalie and Warren
An ideal family villa in a great location
The villa was all that we wanted. An extremely clean and well maintained property in landscape gardens with a great pool. The local manager couldn't have been more helpful and returned our call within minutes when we had a problem with one of our cars, which she sorted out for us with the local garage. There is English Tv, but to be honest, we hardly used it because there is so much else to do. The local town is within easy walking distance and is a safe walk after about 100 metres on the main road. There's a nice restaurant turning left out of the villa, about 500 metres down the road that serves great seafood. The views from the veranda are beautiful and you can see as far as Benicassim in the distance . I have no problem recommending this property to anyone....it's all...and more..than is promised in the advert. Natalie and Warren kept in contact with us throughout...checking everything was ok for us. We had ten wonderful days there and Bella, our Cocker Spaniel, loved it!! Alcossebre itself has some great restaurants and bars, but explore past the marina and you'll find even better ones...and a bit cheaper than in the old town itself. There is also a big supermarket near, within walking distance...but better by car. We will be returning....missing it already!
Well equipped and spacious villa
Villa Ronnie is a well equipped, spacious villa with a great pool. The water slide was a hit with the kids who had hours of fun here! The villa is child friendly with access to UK TV and Internet. You want for nothing from the abundance of towels, to kitchen and crockery provision. The fridge freezer with cold water and ice is great too, and makes it home from home, as does the dishwasher and washing machine.
It is in a great location, close to all the amenities of town, where there is plenty of free parking for you to enjoy the restaurants and beach. Alcossebre is a lovely unspoilt area with very friendly people, and it helps to know the basics of the language. For more tranquility and beautiful beaches head further down the coast to Torrenostra, or for a more lively area head out to Peniscola.
The owners are great, with good communication.
A Beautiful Homely Feel to the Villa
The villa is lovely. The view is stunning from the balcony. It is well -equipped and has a really homely feel to it. We felt as if some of our friends had lent us their villa for the week. The pool is gorgeous and a good size. The slide is fabulous for kids. There is a built-in barbecue which is really good. The sky chairs on the balcony are great for relaxing in. The rooms are a good size and the mattresses are comfortable - Yaay!! There are ceiling fans throughout. The fridge dispenses cold water and there's an ice-maker in there too. So useful for the odd G & T. There's even a tablet for guest use and the colour-changing speaker on the balcony is fab at night. All tiny details thought through. Thanks Natalie and Warren.
Great family villa in a beautiful area
We had a lovely week at Villa Ronnie, myself and my husband travelled with our daughters (5years and 18 months) and my parents. This villa was perfect for us as my parents had their own space downstairs while the girls had the run of upstairs.
The secure gated balcony was a favourite spot for the afternoon and evening for the girls to play, then for the grown ups to relax but within earshot if the girls needed us.
Villa was well equipped, girls made use of all the toys and the inflatables with the pool. Unfortunately our girls were too young to use the slide, but I know older kids would love this, a big bonus for this already lovely pool area.
Some great beaches close by, we especially loved Las Fuentes beach, both girls enjoyed the natural springs and the fact it is very shallow and no waves was ideal.
We loved the area and will return in the future.
Thank you Natalie and Warren for letting us stay in your lovely villa.
Many thanks for your lovely review and for staying at our villa. We are thrilled to hear that you enjoyed your stay!
Hope to see you again,
Natalie and Warren
Gorgeous, comfortable & private villa
We've visited Alcossebre lots of times & and this was without doubt the best villa we've stayed in. It was very spacious inside & was better equipped than our home! It had everything we needed & more. The pool was gorgeous & kept very clean. The pool area is very safe because of the gate that surrounds it which was perfect for our children who are not strong swimmers. The views from the terrace are of the gorgeous blue sea & it was lovely to get back to the villa for some peace & quiet after a day in busy Alcossebre. The villa feels completely safe due to an alarm & cctv system plus Warren provided a pool alarm which goes off if a child were to fall into the pool. The only tiny issue was that although the villa is only a kilometre or so from the town centre & beach, the walk was a bit difficult, mainly due to a busy road & uneven surfaces (if you're taking a buggy), but due to the amount of equipment we took with us to the beach we were happy to drive & we never struggled to find a parking spot in the town. Warren checked in with us (by phone) during the holiday to make sure we were ok & was happy to resolve any issues we had ( we had none). I'd fully recommend a lovely peaceful stay at villa Ronnie & the next time a small group of us are looking for a villa in Alcossebre I'll be checking the availability of villa Ronnie first!
