Great casita located about 3km from the town of Monforte Del Cid on the owner’s property. If you want a relaxing break away from the hussle and bussle of Benidorm and Alicante town, this is definitely for you. The owners were wonderful throughout the experience. Before we arrived Lynda quickly answered all our questions regardless of how trivial they were. Justin, her husband, was a real gent and came to pick us up from the airport, giving us a great précis of the local area as we made our way to the property. Due to its locality, it was remiss of us not to book a hire car and I would highly recommend doing so. Had Justin not been so kind we would have really struggled to get anywhere because there are no real local taxi firms. So yes, hire a car.
The casita sits just behind the owner’s home. No need to worry too much about security because there is a large iron gate that is always closed and the owner’s have security cameras too. Peace of mind. The inside of the property is better than expected. As with most properties of this ilk they are very basic, but there’s enough in the casita to make it feel more homely, like freeview, DVD (with an assortment of movies), PlayStation and Wii. There are also books available and a few board games too. The couches are comfortable, which is always a bonus. The kitchen has a gas cooker and fridge. There is also a large freezer in an outhouse that the owner’s allowed us to use, which is great when you’re buying food for the whole week. The beds are comfortable and are all double sized. Large wardrobes allow even the most hardcore shopper room to store their wares. There is also a travel cot and intercom. The property states it has air con, but that’s only in the double bedroom. Don’t worry though. Each room as ceiling fans! To be honest, I was worried we’d be too hot in the night, but we only used the air con to cool the room down about half an hour before going to bed and just relied on the ceiling fans, which did the job. And yes, it has WiFi! The signal is strong in all the rooms too.
But the best part of the casita is outside. The pool is fantastic - it’s clean and has a dept of about six feet at the deep end. There are enough loungers to please the sun worshippers and a few inflatables for the kids (though check with the owner’s before you go in case they’ve got rid of them). There’s also an outside shower and bbq. For entertainment you have a sound system under the pagoda. A pub sized pool table and best of all an outdoor cinema! That was a real highlight watching the movies under the stars.
Justin and Lynda are very affable and find that right balance of allowing you privacy but also being on hand in case you need them. Oh yes, there’s someone else you’ll meet too. Winnie, a beautiful and friendly Labrador that (if you wish) will happily jump into the pool with you and play catch. Being dog lovers we embraced Winnie, and toward the end of the week were really sad to say goodbye to her. Her temperament around children is great. She doesn’t bark and just likes you to throw her ball. There is a gate leading into the pool area so if you don’t like dogs you can lock her out too.
Overall, for the price it’s an great place to go to relax and top up your tan. Thanks to Lynda and Justin once again for being so kind and making our stay a relaxing one.

We stayed here for 9 nights last year and have just returned for 15 nights. If you want peace and quiet then this is the place.
The owners are on site to help out with anything and to chat to, however, they give you space.
The pool area is great- large pool (which the family don’t use when you do), pool table, loungers and a large seating area in the shade. On an evening the area can be used to watch films on a projector.
The accommodation itself is clean and comfortable. UK TV helped to entertain my child (8years old) when it was too hot outside. He was often inside while I was outside, but I knew he was safe.
The area is very quiet- not walking distance to anywhere. We’ve had a car both times (very easy to find) and wouldn’t stay without one, however I know some guests do. There’s a lot to do within a short drive.
This type of holiday isn’t for everyone but for us it is perfect. The family dog is amazing, but the family are respectful if you don’t want the dog nearby. We would have taken it home as it’s so friendly.
We will return.

It was a pleasure to have the Tumelty family stay with us again. Our dog, Winnie, definitely enjoyed spending hours playing with young Will again this year. Thank you for your review and we hope to see you again. X

We’ve just returned from a wonderful holiday. This villa has the most amazing outdoor space I’ve ever come across. The villa itself is very well equipped and the owners Justin and Lynda were also in hand to assist if necessary. The villas in a quiet remote location so you’d definitely need a car which we did so we were able to explore the beautiful nearby towns and also pop into alicante which is only 15/20 mins away.

Family from Welwyn Garden City, United Kingdom Aug 2017

The casita pool area and hosts Justin & Lynda were great kids and us had a fab 12 days .. I would say have a car as the property is isolated which makes it peaceful and a great relaxing place however a car is useful for going to the town for the carrefour and bakery etc or into Alicante for a much wider choice of restaurant. The local ice cream parlour was a hit with us all and had some great nights sitting having a chat & drink with the owners

Family from Hull, United Kingdom Aug 2016

Thank you very much for an absolutely brilliant week. This has got to have been the best villa we have stayed. Every part of holiday was fab, villa, pool, facilities, one day was slightly overcast but the kids were still entertained by pool table, table tennis and basketball. Owners were extremely friendly and on hand for guidance and information. We only left the villa for one day as it was so pleasant and relaxing for all the family. Will definitely be returning. Big thank you to Justin and Lynda for a week in paradise.

Just returned from 8 days at Casita Rus.....had an amazing time. We took our Grandsons they didnt want to leave! The accommadation is wonderful, very well eqiupped and extremley comfortable. Great swimming pool and terraces. Was even treated to fresh new laid eggs, and the family just cant do enough for you. Would deff recommend to anyone..young..old....families or just couples.

Had booked this villa through the recommendation of a friend and was so glad I did. Friendly owners who went out of their way to give us information and tips for our Easter break. 3 children on site kept my kids occupied and helped them with their Spanish! Great big swimming pool not one of those pocket sized things, could really go for a good swim Nice BBQ. children played table tennis and basketball so they were well occupied. I liked the fact that the pool is covered overnight so I had no need to worry that the children would get out and fall into the pool, same with the electric gates, not chance of the children wandering out or more importantly strangers gettting in. Hope to go back
