3 bed 2 bath house in La Marina - between Alicante and Torrevieja. Communal pool. All amenities close by. Lovely beach just 10 mins away.
The house is situated midway between Alicante and Torrevieja – about a 25 minute drive from each. It is easily reached from both Alicante and Murcia airports. Valencia is another possibility – but you will need to allow 2 hours for the drive.
The house is 10 years old and in excellent condition. It is air conditioned and equipped with TV. (NB Satellite with the main English channels is available during the main summer months - please check for details). It has 3 bedrooms – one double and two twin rooms.
There is a shower room on the ground floor and a bathroom on the first floor. The kitchen comes well equipped with Cooker, Microwave, Washine Machine, Fridge, Iron, toaster etc.
There is a very large roof terrace equipped with sun loungers, table and chairs and barbeque.
There is a shopping mall about a 100 yards from the house and this includes a supermarket, banks, Tourist Information office, newsagent, several bars and restaurants. Therefore no shortage of places to go in the evenings should you not want to drive!
Places to See
There are numerous beaches nearby. The closest is La Marina and this is just 10 minutes away (by car). La Marina is recognised as one of the best beaches in the area – it is unspoilt and very popular with the locals. It has a beach bar – but little else. If you are looking for somewhere with more life, there are a number of resorts – like Santa Pola and Guardamar – nearby. These resorts are livelier – but certainly not in the Benidorm league!
Places to see – Just a few places that are well worth a visit.
Alicante is a must! It has a large shopping centre, an historic ‘old’ town with castle and a lovely harbourside. The marina at night is well worth a visit – lots of very nice restaurants!
Torrevieja – a smaller, quieter version of Alicante - but still very nice. There is a ‘craft fair’ on the waterfront at most times.
Elche – a bustling and prosperous city with an historic old centre.
For those who are happy to look further afield, Benidorm (and the Terra Mitica theme park) is an hour away by car – and Valencia approximately 100 miles away.
How to get around
I may be able to arrange transport between the airport and the house if required – but I would highly recommend the hire of a car. A bus service does run (Monday to Saturday) between the Urbanizacion and La Marina, Elche, Guardamar and Torrevieja during the summer season. Timetables can be picked up from the local Tourist Information office.
We had such a wonderful holiday. We love your Villa Dave, we are saving up to come back again, soon! The villa is beautiful, the best holiday we have ever had. A big THANK YOU to Alan for all your help.
Can recommend The lounge bar for meals and drinks. The staff are very helpful and friendly.

Accurate description of property, very comfortable when we were there. We spent a lot of time buying a property ourselve's.
As we arrived very early (5am on 24th Jan) It was a very welcome surprise that Alan had put Milk,Water and tea bags in the fridge for us. Many thanks Alan. Neighbours were also very friendly and helpful. Nice area and near to shops.
This house was just what we wanted, in a lovely quiet spot, with a thirty second walk to the pool, yet only a couple of minutes walk to the local bars, restaurants and a supermarket. Even though the house is only technically a 6 berth, we were two families each consisting of 2 adults,2 toddlers and 2 infants and found there was ample room. The house was very clean and well looked after and only a short 5 minute walk to the bus stop where you can catch the bus to the beach. Next to the supermarket isthe tourist information office and from here you can catch the bus for a30 minute ride to Alicante or Elche. The house met all our expectations and we were impressed with the roof terrace where we sat on an evening to have a few drinks while the kids were asleep. This villa was excellent value for money and i would recommend it to friends.
Ps. Dave, Alan said you were the next to be coming out, we left some beers in the fridge and a few bottles of wine on the table, enjoy!!
Just come back and had a great holiday, the house was exactly as described. It was a nice quiet area and had some nice places to eat. Shared pool was lovely and normaly empty so that was a bonus. Alan and Pat were very helpful and great around. Holiday just went to quick, would certainly go back as excellent value for money.
My husband & i & 3 children have just returned from our holiday in this villa,. We had a fantastic time, the villa is lovely, it had every concievable thing you may need. Very clean and very comfortable, very spacious. We hired a car from PJ car hire, fantastic service, we highly recommend as they pick you up from airport, deliver car to villa then take you back to airport, stress free! and no need to hire large car as they carry luggage, and they really are fully inclusive. The outside areas, roof top solarium with ample loungers were lovely, we enjoyed meals on the table and chairs in the evenings. The villa is very close to the lovely communal pool, we had sole use of it all week! Very convenient nice quiet area, but bars etc just a very short walk, beautiful beach 10 mins in car. We loved it !! Highly recommended
