The Costa Blanca
The Costa Blanca is one of the most popular holiday destinations in Spain and has been attracting UK tourists to its beautiful beaches since the 1950s. It offers the perfect mix of sun, sand and exciting night-life but is also a great place to go for culture and a taste of traditional Spain. As this particular area has been welcoming tourists for such a long time, our trend has been to provide very well furnished and decorated accommodation, and even the simplest villas offer a very high standard. Areas like Los Montesinos, Algorfa, San Miguel and Dolores are particularly well known for their beautiful church's and local plazas. We are specialists in providing holiday accommodation in all of these, and many other area. You will benefit from fantastic Villas with private pools and private terraces, luxury apartments with roof top pools and solarium's, also Villa complex's for entire family's holidays. Although renowned for its beach holidays Costa Blanca is becoming more and more popular with cyclists, walkers, painters and nature lovers. Small towns like Los Montesinos, Algorfa and Dolores offer a real taste of the Spanish countryside while still being close to the bigger resorts like Torrevieja, and Guardamar Del Segura if you fancy a night out. By renting through us in these areas you get the peace and tranquillity of rural Spain right on your doorstep with bustling night-life just a short drive away. The Costa Blanca has always been hugely popular with families and we can offer great value for a family of six, four or even a couple of families sharing. The kids can go wild at the many water parks, while keen golfers will be in paradise as the area boasts some of the best courses in Spain. So whether you want to chill out on the beach with a book for two weeks or explore the orange groves and colourful orchards in the mountains, put Costa Blanca top of your list for holiday destinations this year.

What struck us both about this villa is the variety of outdoor spaces it provides. There are spaces by the pool and on the roof that get full sun all day long as well as partially and fully shaded areas as well so whether the sun is beating down or is just right theres somewhere to be comfortable. The villa itself is spotlessly clean, very well equipped and very comfortable, all three bathrooms especially are outstanding. Garry welcomed us to the property with a big smile and quickly showed himself to be a lovely bloke, he was always on hand to provide assistance but never overbearing, we just knew he was on hand if ever we needed him. He provided us with possibly the best welcome pack wed ever had with enough provisions to allow you to get straight into relaxing without having to worry about doing a shop as soon as you arrive. The area is very quiet with no traffic noise with bars within a few minutes walk, but with a car you can very easily get to some great beaches, we particularly liked La Zenia and Guardamar All in all a marvelous holiday, we left after the most relaxing and enjoyable weeks wed had in ages. I would thoroughly recommend this property to everyone, just dont book it when we want to go back there

I have just returned from La Yuka, the villa is excellent, I have stayed in villas previous years and this villa is the best I have stayed in so far. There is a supermarket, bars and restaurants nearby and within walking distance. An excellent Indian and Chinese both within walking distance. Torrevieja is a lively tourist town, you can go to the town on the local bus which runs to 11pm, the town comes alive at night with markets, fun fair and restaurants. Places to visit are guadermar, mar menor and Cartagena, we really enjoyed visiting these places, there is do much to do we simply Didnt get chance to do it all and would love to return again. Thanks to Garry who looked after us but also gave us lots of privacy. Fantastic holiday.

Having just returned from a two and a half week holiday with my wife and daughter (who has special needs) I would just like to say what a great time we all had. We were met at the villa by Sue who showed us around and told us how everything worked. There was a welcome pack as well which was much appreciated. Gary came and told us about the area, The villa is simply lovely. So clean and tidy and everything that you can think of is there right down to spices in the food draw. The outside of the house is beautiful with plenty of shaded seating areas (which you will really appreciate as its getting hotter by the day. The pool is heaven and so clean and the gardens are well maintained with lots of lovely shrubs and trees. Gary came to see us during the holiday to make sure that everything was ok and it was good to know that he was only a phone call away if there were any problems (there were none) It was also good to know that he was fluent in Spanish and nothing was too much trouble for him.Whatever you wanted to know he knew or would find out for you. A big thank you Gary for your patience trying to get Lucy into the pool. All together we had a great time so great in fact we have already booked again for next year (cant wait). Thank you again Gary and Sue for your 5 star villa and 5 star service. See you next year.

What a beautiful villa - and absolutely everything was provided by the owners Gary and Susan. The customer service provided was also second to none. Gary couldnt have been more helpful. Giving us advice re where to go, eat etc and also provides a taxi service at very reasonable rates. We would have no hesitation recommending this villa and the area to anyone. Only very small downside is the restaurants and bars which are very close but too British - ie serving cheap british fare. However there were a number of very nice restaurants in Torrevieja Torrevieja and surrounding areas very beautiful. Thanks again go to Gary

We were really pleased to stay at La Yuka. Garry was happy for us to leave our cases as our flight arrived early, and was ready as agreed at 3pm. He showed us around and also came back a couple of times to make sure everything was OK. He was also only a text away if we wanted anything. The villa was clean and tidy and felt like a proper home. Location is quiet yet convenient (if you dont have a car then Garry will drive you and theres also a local bus service). Shops and bars are close - though we did spend most of our time by the pool. La Yuka comes highly recommended and wed certainly consider booking again.

We stayed in the Villa as a family of 6 adults, with 2 more family visiting us on a daily basis. There was always plenty of room for us all in the villa, grounds and pool, having 3 separate bathrooms and several eating and sitting places outside was brilliant. The villa facilities were everything we needed and more, the villa itself is bright modern and airy. Garry was great, anything we asked for he did without question, including getting us 2 more sunbeds and a new gas bottle, which we didnt even need! He also helped us out when our flight was cancelled and let us stay an extra 2 nights even though it put him out with his cleaning schedule for the next visitors. There were plenty of restaurants to eat near by 5/10 minutes walk - Hoggies good breakfast and good value, Taras and the pizzeria nice for an evening meal. All in all an excellent holiday, we would definitely stay there again and would recommend it to friends.

this villa has been one of the best we have stayed in, and we have been doing villa holidays for seven years. We really enjoyed the outside space, there were seven of us but we were never on top of each other in fact sometimes you had to search to find someone. We had unfortunately to have the pool drained for some essential repairs to be carried out, but Gary gave us the keys for the villa across the road and we had full use of its pool, it was back to full working order in a couple of days. The villa had everything you needed if i had to be picky i would of liked air con in the bedrooms it was a bit hot for sleeping. Gary was a great host who was unobtrusive. La Siesta was a quiet urbanization with some good restaurants Hoggies and the two chineses came out tops with us, we think a car would of been benificial. All in all we had a great time and wish we were back already.

We travelled as 3 adults with 2 young children (3 years and 4 months), the villa was excellently prepared for our young family, and nothing was too much trouble for Garry and Sue. Both are great hosts who obviously enjoy managing all their villas and make everyone feel like family. We have a relative out here, so have stayed in spain for the last 7 years and this has been by far the best villa and best welcome we have ever had. Most places simply have a key holder who met us and disappeared until the end of the holiday. Garry and Sue met us at the airport with our hire car, took us to the villa and gave us a tour around. They were always at the end of the phone for any problems, even if it was just a text message query. Gary also popped into see us a few times in the holiday to ensure we were all ok, even bringing a present for our little girl, but he was never intrusive of our privacy, and is always so happy its a pleasure to see him. We spent a lot of time at the villa, its so good there were many days we felt no need to leave. The grounds are all enclosed so safe for the kids to run about freely, and our daughter loved the pool, which she could use whenever she wanted as there are plenty of seating areas for adults within sight of the pool, all arranged to catch the shade at different times of the day. We absolutely loved our holiday, and booked next year with them before we even left! Thank you Garry and Sue - your both amazing!! PS. The photos really dont do this place justice. The garden is immaculate, with tons of space, and works brilliantly with the main open plan living area of the house.

hi garry and doctor sue, the crazy gang had a brilliant holiday, the villa was out of this world everything we needed was there and more besides. the pool was a welcoming site in the morning as the sun was coming up we spent hours of fun with all the water toys to use.the gardens are very private and beautiful with plenty of space to chill out ,the sun terrace is a must to get a tan and see the salt lakes. last but not least we have to say a big thankyou to garry for all his help,he was a great host and made us feel welcome as soon as he picked us up at the airport, and having a sing song on the return journey, and in between taking us to supermarkets and places of interest we also need to thank sue for her help with the prickly heat the yoghurt worked we will definitely be booking la yuka again best wishes to you both from elaine,steve,janet,ian,and hilda

Everthing was up to the standard we expected and anybody thinking of staying here should not hesitate to book because we think it will not be empty much next year.As for gary and sue the owners they could not be more helpful and they saved my bacon as i messed up the booking.

See you again soon from Claire, Neil, Kyle, Amie & Emily.

From the transfer pick-up to the transfer dro p-off at the aiport, everything was of the highest quality.The Villa is really something else, both inside and outside in the gardens.Everything was spotlessly clean & tidy. You really want for nothing.When we arrived, the fan in one bedroom was not working but within one hour a brand new one was in stalled. Gary & Sue do a brilliant job as hosts, rep,s and tourist information.(plus a super taxi service) All being well we will definately be visiting LA-YUKA again next year.Cheers Gary & Sue and once again THANKS for everything.

From the moment we arrived we were met with the friendly face of Sue whom gave us a full, comprehensive tour around this fantastic villa. Too many times we have been away where the photos have been taken in a manner that over compliments the actual reality. Not in this case, everything you see is as good in reality as it is on the website and in many instances better. A Pool side fridge and toilet meant all your whims are catered for and the villa itself is immaculate and very well stocked. Nice bars and restaurants are a five minute walk across an open park. This has been described by some as wasteland, having been to spain many times, this is a park and it was very easy to walk across. Garry and Sue were never intrusive but you always had the comfort that they were there if needed. We were a young group (average age 30) and the 6 of us had one of the best holidays we have ever had. All i can say is book it if its available, you wont regret it.

It is not very often I am moved to write a review of a house I have rented as we do it very frquently in our family. I travel extensively for my job and as a result use rented accomodation very frequently. Sometimes you are lucky and you find a good property, sometimes you can get a helpful host - but at La Yukka we found both! The villa is just beautiful, the best facilities of anything I have stayed in. It was very well stocked with everything you could need and I have to say it was absolutely spotless. The area is residential and the Spanish neighbours were friendly. Gary and Sue were fantastic - without imposing you knew Gary was just at the end of the phone at any time. Their advice on local restaurants, bars, beaches, markets etc was invaluable. Our stay could not have been happier and this was due to Gary & Sues attention to detail and the way they maintain this beautiful property. I cant say enough about how much we enjoyed it - we have 3 daghters 19, 15, and 12 and it is the first time they have agreed on anything! ever! We would recommend this villa without hesitation - even though I was reluctant to do so as it feels like the best secret and we fear it may well become difficult to get a booking once people discover it! Thanks again Gary & Sue for a really excellent week, we will definitely be back. Regards, Colin
Owner reply:

Hi Colin, Breda, Laura, Melissa and MeganThank you so much for your comments Susan and myself really apreciate them, it certainly makes the effort we put in all worth while. You are a wonderful family and we would love to see you again soon. Good luck to you all.Garry & Susan

We would all like to thank Garry and Sue for welcoming us to their villa. It exceeded our expectations we really enjoyed our stay, it was a lovely villa to stay in. We would love to come back soon. Lovely area, close to Torrevieja centre, beach and local shops and great restuarants. We thought the weather was very nice for April time. Thanks to Garry and Sue for letting us arrive early and leave later was very kind of you. We would recommend this villa to all our friends and families - we didnt want to come back! We hope we can book to stay again soon. Many Thanks Nikki and Nick

The properrty was very clean it had everything we could want for a comfy relaxed holiday the garden and pool were the added bonus with plenty of games and pool toys to keep the children happy. We had a good holiday if the weather had been better it would have been bliss
Verified
Really nice villa fully loaded with everything you could possibly need, pool and garden area was really nice, made full use of the BBQ. Would recommend renting a car if you want to get out and about as its slightly out the way. Local facilities i.e shops are a good 15 minute walk and the main supermarket is a car journey. There are a few bars 10 minutes away accross some waste land which is not ideal when with young children or pushchairs. Gary was very helpful and couldnt do enough for us. Overall an amazing villa and ok area and facilities. Will try and revisit and have recommended to friends.

Hi Laura, Michael, Christine, Phillip and the kidsThank you for your comments we really appreciate them. I am sorry the weather was unkind to you, hopefully we may see you soon. Have a Merry Christmas and a happy New yearRegards Garry La Yuka Villa

Hi Gary and Sue We cant thank you enough for our fabulous stay at La Yuka! It far exceeded our expectations! We had the best time. It is difficult when holidaying with little ones, but everything was to hand, the villa was well stocked with everything you could imagine!! Gary was always at the end of the phone, and nothing was too much trouble, we happened to mention that we were thinking of hiring a pushchair, as we had left ours at home like fools, but no sooner had we said it, Gary and Sue turned up with a brand new Graco pushchair for the villa and our use!! The description of the property and photos do the place no justice. There is a lovely split level roof terrace, an outside loo, an outside bar and beautiful BBQ area, the pool is stunning (and well kept) the grounds are gorgeous, the villa is secure (also a worry with little ones) the kitchen is fab and stocked with every herb and spice imaginable, the lounge is really spacious (there were 8 of us staying, and not once did it feel crowded) and the bedrooms were just lovely. cannot recommend this place enough. Perfect villa, perfect holiday, perfect weather, just perfect all round!! We will return........ Thanks Helen, Paula, Harvey, Steven, Luke, James, Ollie and Laura x P.S Gary, It wasnt the washing machine, we put on half a stone each!!

although this villa is of a very high standard there rae 1 or 2 issues that really need to be addressed. When arriving after very long journey with kids in tow it was very disappointing to be told that the villa was still being cleaned i know we where a little early but it would have been nice to be able to dro p the luggage off rather than be told that it took them 11 hours to clean the villa last time (maybe cleaners should be hired) also why have a music centre at the BBQ bar if you can not use it? yes its true. gary told us one morning that if we are not quite after 11pm we would get a visit from the police and could be taken to the airport and sent home as this is a quite area well gary please be assured we never made any such noise and anyway my mum said as we where on holiday i could say up till midnight as iam almost 50. sorry gary but those things needed to be said please lighten up people work hard all year and pay good money to visit your villa we dont need the hassle that you provide.if you require a lesson on how to look after your guest than maybe you would like to visit my villa in portugal and i will show you how its done i promise you can stay up as late as you like good luck gary your need it
Owner reply:

Hi MickThank you very much for your comments; we will take them on board. Any feedback we get helps us to improve our standards, we do appreciate them. I do apologise for you not being able to obtain entry to La Yuka at midday, this was due to the fact that our guests previously didn’t vacate the villa until 10 am that same day, and to provide the high standard that you received. We tend to allow ourselves 5 hours to prepare for our next guests, this why we state in our advert that our earliest time of arrival is 3 pm, however I do apologise for any inconvenience caused. Our aim is to ensure all our guests a memorable holiday, and we are aware that people save all year for their holidays, with this in mind we will endeavour to obtain a license from the authorities for those who like to party late. Thank you for your comments and the gesture of good luck, I wish you good luck also with your villa in Portugal.Kind regardsGarry La Yuka Villa

Garry the area rep was simply superb,showing us round both the villa and surrounding areashe simply went out of his way to make our stay even more enjoyable! All in all a great holiday and a big thankyou from us allwe will definately be booking one of your villas again in the near future
Nicola from Stockport ྦྷ/08/2009)"Stunning villa with lots of space in quiet rural location. car needed to visit beach and local towns, very traditional un touristy towns nearby. Villa very clean and lovely tasteful furniture fab air conditioning. Pool great with lovely gazebo by pool giving very welcome shade, perfect for lunch and sangria. bbq was new big gas one so we spent lots of time eating in and dining al fresco. kids loved villa and pool. fun to watch bats flying at night, so quiet you can hear their wings flap. If you want some luxury and to see some real spain, this is the place to come. Beach at Guardamar great, visit Moncaio quieter and very beautiful."
James from stoke-on-Trent ླ/09/2009)"would recommend to everybody,the villa was fantastic and we were all really shocked by how nice and homely it was when we arrived. the pool was fantastic. The surrounding area of the villa including all the bars and restaurants were fantastic. Had lots of late nights at the bars and found it very easy to find our way back. The communication with the owner was fantastic through out and he eased a lot of query's we had thanks . Garry was absolutely fantastic picking us up from the airport for a small fee and also returning in mid week to pick up our friend Steven,he also took us all back to the airport for our return home,and not forgetting that he also took us and picked us up from the waterpark.which turned out to be a fantastic day. Garry also took us to the local complex and showed us wear the shops bars and restaurants were so we could pick up essentials as soon as we got there.he gave us a fantastic tour around the villa showed us wear everything was and how it worked, Garry really couldn't have done anything more for us than he did. thanks a lot Garry. An all round fantastic holiday for us five lads would not hesitate in returning. Thank you from Jim,Tim,Tim,Steve and Steele."

Susan and myself have lived in Spain for ten years, within that time we have managed properties for our customers and friends. We manage some of the Properties that are listed with villa renters, and have been successful in helping them make the high star grades, for instance we manage casa Louise in Playa Flamenca, this villa with our input now is rated very high. We now have La Yuka villa this is one of our own, and with the experience we have gained, we have purposely equipped this villa with the holiday maker in mind. Hope you enjoy it.
