What can I say about this apartment......absolutely beautiful! Sometimes you see photos of accommodation and you think yeah, ok, looks nice but I bet it won't look like that when we arrive. But no, it was just as lovely in reality as it looked online.
The owner was very helpful via email/whatsapp/text regards any information we wanted for excursions (we decided to do our own investigating in the end) and he even asked us what flavour coffee pods we would like for the nespresso machine!
The apartment was immaculate with everything you need, down to him providing dishwasher tablets under the sink, water and milk in the fridge, mini toothpastes in the drawer and laundry tablets for our arrival. The blackout shutters on all of the windows were excellent, not a peep of light which meant no early sunrise wake up calls, much appreciated with our four year old :) The shared pool is lovely and warm with a small childrens section off it, and it has private gated access/gardens for security.
The views across to the sea were stunning and as its located in a residential area, lovely and quiet (ok, the odd moped but hey, it is Spain!) Alicante is a 30 min tram ride away (a five min walk to the nearest stop) and very cheap. We even went to Benidorm for the day for £12e :)
The beach (10 min walk) was stunning. Lovely white sands, clear blue sea and if you have children, they have swings and play areas dotted all the way along to keep them entertained. Lots of lovely sea front restaurants if you want a view and if you want to stay in and cook, theres a little shop 5 mins walk away for the basics, with a bread shop next door, plus a pizza parlour, a pharmacy and a bar.
Couldn't have asked for a lovlier place to take our young son on his first abroad holiday. There was a lovely french lady living in the apartment next door who helped us out with information, I'm sure she wouldn't mind you knocking on her door if you need advice.
One helpful tip, ask the owner to book you a taxi from the airport when you arrive, do not get in one waiting outside. We paid £40 euros when we landed....the owner booked one for our return to the airport...it was £25e :-o
Couldn't recommend this enough if you want a relaxing and chilled out holiday. If you want night clubs, water parks and pool bars with loud music then you'd better off going to ibiza! ;)
We had a 10 day stay in this beautiful apartment is was everything and more that we had hoped for.
Javier the owner couldn't have been more helpful and nothing was to much trouble.
It's very close to the beautiful sandy beach Playa San Juan, local shops, restaurants and the tram is there if you wanted to explore this fabulous part of the world..
Looking forward to a return visit
