This was our first holiday together as a couple and family and also to this area of Spain.
Contact with Sue was brilliant and very easy - you sent a message you got a quick reply and nothing seemed like too much trouble. Contact with the property manager whilst in Spain was just the same - A text message got an instant reply or a visit - David lives next door.
The property was large enough for us and catered for all our needs - albeit you don't go abroad to watch the soap's this was possible and therefore part of our party was happy.
We visited in October half term and the villa location and the beach front area were quiet. We were lucky with the weather and despite the forecast managed at least four and a half days on the beach.
In short a fantastic first holiday as a couple and family in a villa that had all we required.
Would we visit again..... In a heartbeat..
Thank you Sue and Property manager David.

Thank you for completing the review and thank you very much for your kind comments. It is very important to us to get your feedback.
I am so glad that you liked our villa and enjoyed your first holiday together. We love our villa and Javea itself and we like to spend as much time there as possible. Its good to know that you feel the same.
I will also pass on your kind comments to David, our Property Manager - we are very lucky to have him so close at hand.
Thanks again for booking with us - I hope that you will visit again in the future.
Beautiful villa in fine location-centre of Javea-restaurants (owner provided helpful list of recommendations) shops etc 10 mins drive (Taxi approx. 8 euros) Large supermarket also 10 mins drive-good selection at much cheaper than UK prices Villa had everything required for relaxing holiday (we were an extended family group of parents and grown up children and their partners-all 30 +) including Wi-Fi and UK TV (Sky sports was available but don't think we used it-weather too good to sit inside) Property manager right next door but never needed his assistance after the initial welcome briefing Would certainly recommend this villa and the town of Javea-was our first time for both but would definitely go back

Hi David, thank you for your positive review. I am so glad that you loved our villa and Javea. We love our villa and spending time there and I am so pleased to hear that you enjoyed it too.
The villa is fantastic, very comfortable and well equipped. Wonderful views and many happy hours spent outside.
The beach is around 15 - 20min walk and shops and restaurants close by.
Javea is a really established location in Spain which was nice to see.
A great holiday had by all.
What a fabulous time we had! The villa far exceeded our expectations and we had a very restful, relaxing and HOT holiday. Would definitely return as we had such a wonderful time. We have been to Javea many times before and were surprised at how close we were to the beach (although a car is definitely needed to see Javea). Thank you for making our stay so comfortable and enjoyable!
We wanted a nice spacious villa with good outdoor space as this is where we would be spending more of our time. And can happily say the villa was ideal for us.
The naya and BBQ areas were real hits for us and greatly added to our experience. The owners were also very helpful with providing local information etc.
The main bathroom could benefit from updating but this didn’t take away from our experience.
I would certainly recommend this villa and indeed Javea for those yet to visit it (make sure you go to the tourist info centre and check out those fantastic walks)
A good time was had by all.

What an awesome holiday villa! We couldn’t get our girls out of the pool so we sat on the large patio area around the pool or under the cover of the brilliant naya and read books. The inside of the villa is extremely spacious. Enormous kitchen, 4 very good bedrooms, two with en suites plus a family bathroom. Large lounge which is very comfortable with Sky tv, cds etc so you can keep up to date with Corrie! All furniture and fittings are lovely. We used the barbecue in the outside kitchen area and ate all the time outside under the naya with table and chairs for 8 plus lounge area overlooking the pool. The garden areas of this villa are lovely and large with many shrubs and trees. The views from the garden and pool area are stunning with the Montgo a brilliant backdro p in the distance behind the town of Arenal. Car hire recommended but not essential if you get a taxi from Alicante. Villa is a 3Ǉ minutes drive to Arenal Beach and town where we found lots of restaurants offering excellent choices of food and prices, with the less expensive ones also very good. The beach is stunning with a diving platform not far off the beach - our girls had a great time there. The promenade is wide and gives an easy walk along past shops and restaurants to the harbour about 20ᆲ mins walk away. As Arnie said , we'll be back!John, Karen and family (visited autumn 08 and summer 09)
A stunning villa with fabulous views over Mount Montgo. 8 of us stayed here for two weeks and had a fabulous holiday. It is very quiet and relaxing yet only a few minutes drive away from the lovely sandy beach and restaurants. We thought the villa was the best we have ever stayed in, it had everything we needed plus so much more, the inside is gorgeous and really comfortable. The outside space is stunning and it was so relaxing knowing the children could play safely in the gated grounds. Javea is lovely and we enjoyed spending time on the sandy beach and walking in the old port, the restaurants were very child friendly offered a wide selec tion of food. We especially enjoyed getting the children to bed and sitting in the naya with a bottle of wine enjoying the views over the Mount Montgo. We loved this villa and will definitely book again.Phil and Michelle
We want to say many thanks to Richard and Sue for letting us rent their beautiful villa - we had an absolutely fantastic week. The location is ideal - Javea is just an hour's drive from Alicante airport and the villa is only 5 minutes from a great beach and a super choice of restaurants.The villa is very roomy with plenty of space in the living areas and bedrooms. All of the rooms are light and airy and very well presented and all four bedrooms are of a good size and two of them have excellent en-suite bathrooms. The villa is very well equipped both inside and out - the kitchen has everything you'd need and the satellite TV and DVD player came in handy to keep the children entertained. The barbeque area is a good idea and there is plenty of furniture in the poolside area.We very much enjoyed taking our meals on the naja with lovely views of the beautiful garden. However, the highlight of our holiday was the lovely pool with its splendid views of the surrounding area afforded by the villa's elevated position. The pool and gardens are completely enclosed and so very safe for young children which meant mum and dad could relax for a few minutes too.We would thoroughly recommend the villa for a quiet family holiday and we have already booked to return in 2010.Best regardsPeter & Nikki
Without a doubt one of the best villas I have stayed in. It has all the mod cons and facilities you’d expect plus there’s loads of space in the villa, the garden and around the pool, which is great when you have two boys. My wife loved the walk through dressing room and the view in the morning from the bedroom window well you need to see for yourself!! There is everything you will need to have a great break and come home feeling completely relaxed. We will definitely use again – in fact we have already booked. Enjoy! Richard Harvey
