2 bedroom Aguamarina holiday villa rental with shared pool
August 2019

Villa was fantastic, size was very deceiving from the outside it's extremely spacious inside and the back yard is a little sun trap. Ideal area very close to the strip and all pubs, restaurants and local shops, also just a 5min walk to the beach. Complex is very clean and surprisenly quiet. Only small issue is the cleaning fee, I felt it was a little much esp with all the cleaning that has to be done before leaving the villa.

This was our second stay at this house and it has only gotten better. Still all of the same home comforts but now with some additions. The dishwasher was great and the provision of water etc when we arrived was much appreciated. As before we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Casa Louise. Thanks Paul

3 bedroom villa with shared pool in Orihuela, Costa Blanca
July 2019

The villa was located in a quiet street, however pubs and restaurant were just around 5 minutes walk.The other villas were empty during our stay so we had the whole street and swimming pool to ourselves. Swimming pool is just a minute walk from villa and water was warm all day, clean and maintained every day. We hired a car for all week and it took just 10 mins driving to the -in our opinion- best beach with possibilities of hiring banana boat, jet ski, parasailing... sea water was great, warm and we spent hours in the sea. The villa was clean with well equipped kitchen, air con was a savior as the temperature raised during the day. The yard in front of the house is massive, and sunny during all day. Communication with the owner was excelent, any questions were answered very quickly, Daniel-the lady who looks after the villa- was very nice, chatty and she explained everything to us the first evening we arrived. We had no complaints, no problems, our holiday went smoothly... We usually go to new places when travelling to Spain, however we would love to go back eventually and have another great holiday. Thank you very much for a lovely holiday.

3 bedroom villa with shared pool in Orihuela, Costa Blanca
May 2019

2nd Time here and stayed for a couple of weeks. As before the Villa is impeccable and a real home from home and is an excellent base for the Southern Costa Blanca. The Aldi at the top of the road is now an 'Overseas' (Iceland) which is great for just about anything but is expensive (All UK brands available at a price) so use for essentials but a Fantastic Aldi is a 2 minute drive in the nest village and is great for choice and price. New Bars and restaurants have opened in the locality offering a much wider choice. As before I would not hesitate to recommend and more than likely will return!! Thankyou James & Denise for your hospitality (again!)

Travel guide

Villas in Orihuela

Orihuela is an ancient city and district in Alicante Province. Nestled at the foot of the Sierra de Orihuela mountains, this region of the Costa Blanca is divided into three parts; the historic centre, La Pedrera Reservoir countryside area and the coast, while the glorious beaches of neighbouring resort Punta Prima are just a 40 minute car journey away. With the Segura River running through the middle, the streets of Orihuela have an authentically Spanish flair, with traditional markets and tapas bars, yet you will also find shopping malls and boutiques in-between the many museums and religious structures. The city is brought to life with a blend of architectural styles, from Baroque chapels to Roman Catholic cathedrals providing the perfect backdrop to an alfresco meal. Once you've had your fill of sightseeing, unwind on beaches like award-winning Playa Flamenca and family-friendly Playa de la Glea. For a change of scenery, take a day trip to Alicante, less than an hour's drive, train, or bus journey away.
