Our family of 4 adults & 3 kids spent 2 weeks here in July. The communication with Ingeborg beforehand was excellent. She greeted us upon arrival and showed us around, explaining everything we needed to know, and returned briefly after our first week to filter the pool and water the lovely plants, of which there are many.
The villa is situated in a quiet residential area. There are 2 supermarkets within a 2 minute drive, or 15 minute walk. However, the house is situated up a steep hill - we did not have a car, and relied on the local bus service (bus stop at bottom of road) The walk down to the bus stop was no problem, but the walk back up in the hot sun was a killer - the pool was most welcome at the end of the climb - many days we jumped in fully clothed!!! This villa would be most suited to holiday makers with a car.
The property was exceptionally clean, spacious and had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. The beds were made up, there was spare bed linen and an endless supply of fresh clean towels! The main house was perfect for 2 adults and 3 children, while the separate lower annexe suited the 2 remaining adults (please note, this is not accessable from the upper house - it has a separate door).The sunroom off the living area was so bright and airy, with beautiful views, a perfect place to enjoy breakfast.
The kitchen is small, clean and well equipped, but not really suitable for cooking large meals for our group of 7. There isn't a built in oven, however there was a plug in portable one the size of a small microwave which we used for heating bread rolls and cooking pizzas.
The outdoor space is quirky, with lots of separate areas, lots of loungers, parasols and seated areas to enjoy throughout the day and evening. The pool was clean and big enough for us, although does get very deep towards one end. Our youngest, 6 year old, was able to use the pool with swimming aids. The patio area overlooking the pool was lovely at night - a perfect place for a relaxing glass or two of wine. There is a small roof terrace, from which you can see all the beautiful surrounding villas and down into Benidorm in the distance, particularly beautiful at night, when it is all lit up.
This was a fantastic base for our holiday, we travelled in and out to Benidorm many times (15min drive) and also used the tram to travel to the near by beautiful towns and villages.
Ingeborg's villa was all we had hoped & more - would love to return. Highly recommend.
