An excellent holiday here. Found the walk to the Plaza took much longer than was stated especially in the heat. The facilities at the apartment were excellent and it was well equipped for our needs. We had never been to the Costa Blanca before but found it a lovely place to be based. The only problem we had, if it was a problem, was that all the area was very "English". We eventually found a couple of nice Spanish restaurants, the Zenia Beach and a tapas restaurant on the strip between the Eiffel Tower and the Balti Tower. We had a few barbecues at the property and would suggest that a new barbecue is bought for next season as the legs were wonky. (To be fair we were pre-warned about this by the owner.) All in all we enjoyed our stay and would recommend to others.
We had an excellant stay at Villa Maria, it far exceeded the photos which do not do it complete justice.... shops & restaurants are just up the road, Victorias Chinese Restaurant is the best...best chinese I've ever had. The pool is actually a lot bigger then it looks in its photo...the kids loved it, was in there all the time...even at night when its all lit up, it looks and is great. Joe & Maria were in Spain when we were there and popped round to see that we were alright and had every thing that we needed...which we did, the villa is extremly well equiped. Recommend a trip to the market which is about 15-20 min walk away but worth it...take a look.
If you have a B-B-Q go to Mr Lambs the butcher up the road, does a really good selection of meats and bits.... and is really helpful.
La Marina is a nice, quite relaxing place ( which is what we wanted ), but if you want to get about a bit the local car hire is very reasonable.There's loads more that I could say but would take for ever putting it down.
Would and will definatley come back to Villa Maria again..... we had a great time...cheers.
A very good base to explore the area - a car is essential. The villa was warm and comfortable (we stayed in the winter). The local shops bars and restaurants are good once you find them all. I would advise anyone to have a good drive round when they first arrive. There are lots of different commercial areas and some are better than others.
Very private unlike the other properties we saw close by. Lovely private pool. I would recommend the owner Joe Furmanek has a netted cover you can pull over the pool when not in use to prevent Gechos and other animals/wildlife falling into the pool, which is not too pleasant when you about to swim in the morning to discover dead bees, flys and little lizards. Would have been nice if the pool lights had worked at night to illuminate the Pool, but we were told they were broken which was a shame, and they have been for a little while according to the property management agency
The villa was clean, very homely, the AC is definately a good thing and we especially liked the fact that the outdoor shower, by the pool had hot running water.
We made use of the TV and Stereo and the local Spanish Supermarket is close by which helps as we didn't have the use of a car. Malcolm our driver who met us at the Airport, from the Property management company was extremely kind, most helpful and informative about the area and the people and what to be careful of whilst staying in Alicante. We found him to be a a very nice man and trustworthy. Lee at Leja villas was also most helpful in the planning of our holiday. The weather was fantastic whilst there and we hada lovely relaxing, lazy time. Just what the Doctor ordered. Many thanks - Hazelle Woodhurst and the girls - Erika, Zoe, Kate & Gail

Unfortunately, bees do fall in the water, (never heard, or seen of a Gecho doing that though!) but the pool pump will skim them out of the pool, so no one ever uses netting. The pool lights were burnt out the previous occupants left them on night and day. I have ordered LED replacements which last a lot longer and consume less power. They will be here any day now. In August, everything in Spain closes down apart from tourist attractions! Difficult to get anything fixed in that month. But from what I hear you want to come back, and you will have your pool lights, I guarantee, the next time.
This villa was exactly as it was portrayed on the website. We found a clean, spacious, well equipped villa with excellent facitilies both for the adults and children. Everything that had been promised was delivered and the great service from the staff at the Lejavillas was much appreciated, especially Lee and Malcolm. The airconditioning and own pool were both an absolute must!! No hesitation whatsoever in recommending this villa and the services.
