The local area:
The apartment complex is located ia short walk from the sandy beach area which is brimming with restaurants, bars and shops. You don´t need a car whilst you are there but you may find it handy for getting to and from the airport and if you do wish to explore further afield.
Javea is divided into 3 areas:
Arenal (sandy beach) - obviously popular in the warmer months, with plenty of shops, restaurants, cafés and bars. The beach is in a crescent shape and is very shallow so excellent for younger children. Beside the canal you can hire a speed boat to explore the Javea´s natural coves and bays, inaccessible on foot. Nearby on the rocky beach north of the Arenal are numerous beach bars and more sea-front restaurants as well as jet-ski and windsurf hire.
The Port - about 2km from the sandy beach you arrive at the port. Still a small picturesque working fishing village, the port has a wonderfully authentic atmosphere with many pedestrian areas where families spend warm summer evenings either at one of the many restaurants or cafés while they watch their children play.
The Old Town - steeped in tradition, Javea´s old town is one of the prettiest villages on the Costa Blanca. Located up a hill leaving the port, this is the original village of Javea and still inhabited by local families. The atmosphere here is "true Spanish" with no sign of souvenir shops and where the local people tend to live, shop and work. The daily fresh food market is in the historic almost pedestrian centre where you will also find restaurants and the real Spanish tapas bars.

A well presented modern apartment with good quality furnishings and a well equiped kitchen. Air conditioning worked well. Although situated adjacent to the local infant school this was not a problem - this is a quiet location. Conveniently situated for the beach area,shops and restaurants which are only a couple of minutes walk away. Secure underground car parking inluded.
A really comfortable modern flat (brand new when we stayed there in 2008),which is spacious and well-equipped. The pools a good size too and there werent many people around at the beginning of September so we often had it to ourselves. With our two young children it was just over a 5-minute walk to the beach - an advantage because youre close enough but also away from the hubbub. Its a very pleasant beach with good restaurants, bars and ice creams and we enjoyed exploring both Javea and the surrounding area. Wed have no problems going back there and wed very probably try and stay in this flat again.
Overall I was happy with the apartment we rented. It was aesthetically very pleasing. With that said it there were a couple of things that were frustrating. The first and my biggest gripe was that there was insufficient hot water for more than 2 people to take a hot shower. The next was that there was no supplies for the bathroom, toilet paper, soap etc. I would have expected these items, or at least some communication that these items were not in the apartment so I could have planned accordingly. I had other family members renting apartments at the same time and their rentals came fully "stocked". Not a major deal but aggravating. Lastly the keyless entry system did not work properly...the release system to allow a person to hit a button and allow a person to get into the complex did not work...once again my gripes are minor (except the hot water) and overall the apartment was very nice.
A very well-furnished, beautifully presented property in good proximity to the Arenal. We found the apartment very comfortable, sparklingly clean and new, and well-placed. Lovely to have underground parking, too.
Would recommend that you put more photos of the interior on the website, as the pictures of the bathrooms alone dont do the whole of the inside justice!
It would be helpful to have instructions left on how to operate the heating etc. and information about the gym (how to find it - we did eventually - and were we allowed to use it). Another helpful thing would maybe be some leaflets/info or recommendations for local tourist attractions and bars/restaurants etc., as the tourist office was not reliably open in October. I would also advise future guests that, during school term time, the front side of the building can be a little noisy, as there is a school opposite and lots of to-ing and fro-ing during the school day. Not a problem in the evenings and at weekends though!
Overall, though, a lovely place to spend a holiday.
