Well Worth a Visit!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this fantastic family villa was superb. We were warmly welcomed by our hosts and nothing was too much trouble. Casa Meacka is a very well appointed villa - spacious, clean and tastefully decorated - with all the essentials for a relaxing holiday away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

The pool is most inviting - a great size, easily accessible and well maintained. When we felt it necessary to burn off a few calories we made use of the villa's full size tennis court, surrounded by beautiful olive trees. There is ample space for relaxing on the spacious patio, dining (we mainly dined outside during our stay), enjoying the panoramic views of orange, lemon and olive trees with mountains as the backdrop, watching films and listening to music - or just finding a shaded spot for quiet reading. Free and reliable Wi-fi was a bonus.

There are plenty of interesting local walks, however a car is essential for sightseeing, visiting nearby local markets, restaurants, bars and the coastline, as well as the necessary supermarket shop! There is a choice of local airports to fly in to. Our drive from Alicante Airport was straightforward and we were impressed by the standard of the main highway which was never busy and, in some parts, it was deserted!

We would strongly recommend Casa Meacka to anyone wanting to re-charge their batteries and spend quality time with family and friends in fantastic accommodation in the Spanish countryside.

Recommended for Age 55+, Families with children of all ages, Sightseeing, Girls relaxing getaways

A Well Kept Secret - but not for long!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place!!!!!,

Ken, I would like to say that this was the worst place we had ever been to, (just to keep it a secret and ensure that it was available next time we wanted to book), but I would be lying!!!!!

There were three generations of family staying here and it exceeded our expectations. Maximum age 72, minimum age 25, grandparents, parents and newly engaged couple.

We all had our own area's that we could retreat to if needed, but with so much to do outside needing space was not the case. In a 16 day break we only spent two nights inside!

You will definately need a car. With so much in the area, historic towns, mountain villages, lakes and plenty of markets you can sightsee in the morning and then return to the villa in the afternoon to cool off in the wonderful pool. The night life and beach is a short 1/2 hour drive away.

We all came back completely relaxed and chilled and would definately reccomend it as a perfect stay.

Stunning views - Wonderful quiet, peaceful space..

  • 5 of 5

The pictures do not do this villa, the pool or surrounding space any justice at all. Very peaceful area with a good mix of people. Our initial impression of the villa, pool and garden areas was that we had found more than we expected and were very pleased with the space within the walls of the villa on arrival.

Bright and spacious interior with everything you need for a comfortable holiday. Well equipped kitchen and most importantly, a clean kitchen! Cd's and DVD's at the villa and the wifi internet.

The pool is wonderful! Again, the pictures do not do this place justice and I would suggest the owner adds some more.

I can't praise the villa, pool and grounds enough, we loved it! Lazy days in the sun with the pool to fall into to cool off and look over the mountains..

A car is necessary as there isn't anything to do within walking distance, but plenty to do within a short drive. Garruacha is well worth a visit for wonderful sea food, fresh fish at amazingly low prices.. Buy fresh prawns and BBQ them back at the Villa.. Wonderful!

Garruacha comes alive at night, the streets are awake with many people and families enjoying the sea air and fresh fish restaurants. Small fun fair, clean beaches, clean water, changing rooms and WC's on the beach.

Restaurants and bars all within driving distance.

We're 4 adults and 2 children, one age 11, the other age 9 and we have all had a great time and go back to the UK totally relaxed. I wouldn't say this place is only for 55+ we're all under 45 and found the place perfect as a comfortable base.

The chap who looks after the pool and his wife who changes the beds and towels, are very nice and deserve a mention for their help, welcome and friendly advice.

Drop off at the supermarket before you get to the Villa for your staples.

If you're looking for lively night life on your doorstep, this isn't the place.. If you're looking for a wonderful view, fantastic property, and total peace and quiet and you're happy to drive to the night life.. Then choose this Villa, you will not be disapointed.

We'll be back!... Thank you Ken!

Exelent property for good health!

  • 4 of 5

We spend 12 days in this villa and my( the mrs) health was exelent every day. It was lovely weather and it was silent with a nice black night with stars, and no trafic noise.

Two teenagers liked it too with the swimmingpool day and night.

It was not too far to drive to the beach and restaurants for dining. Buying food to breakfast in a little village was about 8 min. away and you could get bread at the door.

We loved it every one and sightseeing for many towns to shopping and historic adventures not far away.

The villa was very nice with a great kitschen and wasching machine for chlothing when you have teenagers.

Tv with DVD was also nice for the girls.

You can all relax and have a good time.

Even when it was very warm it has a nice wind in the air so every day was very lovely.

Mini Hollywood,Mojacar, Cartagena is a must.

Two and tree adults and two teenagers.

Best regards from Norway.

Un endroit fabuleux.

  • 5 of 5

Après deux semaines passées dans la villa Meacka il y a qu'un seul mot à dire: fabuleux! Elle convient parfaitement pour 7 personnes, est bien située et se trouve dans un endroit très calme. Les installations (piscine, court de tennis) sont bien entretenues tout comme le logement. C'est un endroit que nous conseillons à tous ceux qui désirent passer des bons moment en famille ou entre amis!

Sur place, Martin a été présent pour nous conseiller sur les endroits à voir, pour répondre à toutes nos questions relatives à la maison, pour s'occuper de l'entretien de la piscine. C'est une personne très accueillante, sympathique et chaleureuse.

Merci Christine et Ken pour cette location, nous avons passé un séjour splendide et nous garderons beaucoup de bons souvenirs de nos vacances dans le sud de l'Espagne.
