Villajoyosa Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Two 2 bedroom beach front cottages, sleep 4/5; Alicante airport 40 mins. away

Two charming 2 bedroom cottages set in huge gardens leading directly to the beach of this secluded bay. The sea gently laps onto the shingle beach at the bottom of these private gardens providing an idyllic setting for the 2 adjoining cottages which offer unrivalled views of Charco Bay where one can enjoy snorkelling and swimming. One cottage sleeps 4 and the other 5. Both cottages have two bedrooms, a bathroom with shower, kitchen & lounge/in-door dining room which leads directly onto a terrace fully equipped for al fresco dining and sunbathing. If you have a large family or a group of friends both cottages can be rented together or, of course, they are available separately. As well as having the sea and beach on your doorstep, walking across the cliff tops offers magnificent views of the Mediterranean and the Charco Medieval Moorish lookout tower. The city of Alicante is outlined along the coast about 25 Kms. away to the south and to the north lies Altea approximately 20 kilometres away.

There are several golf courses in close proximity as well as the popular Terra Mitica theme park, Aqualandia water park and MundoMar. Additionally, the Terra Natura (safari park / zoo) and AquaNatura (featuring sealife) parks in the Benidorm area. There are also Go-Carting circuits for the more adventurous and the young at heart! The city of Elche offers SafariPark Elche and Valencia the City of the Arts and Ciences Museum.

And of course Benidorm offers a great variety of activities for all ages as does the quaint, artistic town of Altea, both to the north. A picturesque 1.5 hour drive (or trainride) north adjacent to miles of orange groves takes you to Spain's third largest city, Valencia, with all its history and glory. To the south there are several possible excursions, Alicante for example, with a huge marina, two castles, night-life and shopping; Elche (the world's largest palm trees exporter) with a breath taking botanical garden; Orihuela with dozens of churches enclaved in its historic Old Town; city of Murcia which is famous for its gastronomy and it's historic Old Town. And it has good shopping too!

Sunny Haven

Betsy met us on the roadside.....essential as this villa is in a secluded spot off the beaten track. You only need to be shown once however then it is an easy find.
We stayed in beach cottage and this
lovely well equipped villa has a beautiful view of the ocean & the bay. During our stay we had hot, wall to wall sunshine...bliss.
This is a great base should you wish to travel around and there is a lovely sandy beach in Villajoyosa with restaurants easily accessible by car. There is a large shopping complex in Benidorm (18 km away) which includes a huge Carrefour store for all your self catering needs & more!
Betsy lives next door & is available should you have any questions or require directions but otherwise she is discreet & respects your privacy.
This Villa comes highly recommended should you want a quiet haven in the sun.

An Oasis of tranquility

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: May 11, 2013
  • Stayed: Apr 2013
The location of this holiday home is stunning. Set on the same coast as Benidorm/Alicante, one would expect to be surrounded by noise and views of them. However this small bay hides between them, a secret location, keeping quite and private, letting the rest of the busy world rush past with fingers crossed no one notices it is there.

We stayed in “Beach Cottage”, which we found immaculate. It is pretty, comfortable, and well equipped. The interior provides functionality and uniqueness, with creative fabric features (home designed, bed linen, cushions etc) and wonderful original art work by the owner. The small details are not missed with fresh flowers in and outside the cottage, even in our bedroom. We have stayed in holiday homes before where we have had to clean before we used anything and even buy tea towels; not so with Beach Cottage, even our beach towels were provided.

We befriended our neighbours, so had the opportunity to view the “Sea View Cottage”, also clean, pretty and well equipped with bigger inside and outside living areas. Both cottages have sea views, “Sea View Cottage” benefiting with views of the shoreline and an external covered terrace. From “Beach Cottage” you can’t quite see the waves breaking, it doesn’t have a solid covered terrace roof either, not a problem when its sunny, but slightly restrictive should it rain. We would happily stay in either.

The pebbled beach is at the bottom of the gardens, accessed via a private locked gate. The shared gardens work really well, with enough space to be isolated or sociable. Our neighbours were delightful and we shared drinks and dinner with them on their terrace and on ours.

A car is necessary, there is nowhere to walk to for lunch/dinner/drinks. We had some fabulous lunches out, restaurants recommend by Betsy (who couldn’t be more helpful and friendly). Our nights were filled with cooking, drinking and sitting on our terrace watching the sun set and listening to the sea.


We are truly grateful that our sister in law found and shared this holiday home with us. Once we left we had no hesitation that we would return, with a view to book both cottages for a larger family gathering in the future.


Betsy and Lise, are very much hands-on and available, unlike some ‘long distance’ owners that we have experienced. They have created such a wonderful magical place, extending a warm and friendly atmosphere … one, almost selfishly, would like to keep it a secret.

A Little Piece of Heaven on Earth!

This is a very cozy, quaint and feel right at home place, with AMAZING views!
Betsy and Lise are wonderful hosts, and two of the kindest people we have ever met. Always ready and willing to help with anything we could possibly need.
The cottage is beautifully decorated and the owners/managers' good taste emanates everywhere you look, from the furniture, to the art on the walls, fresh cut flowers around the cottage, and beautifully manicured garden.
This cottage has its own terrace with great views, and there's also another terrace right in front of the beach that is shared with another cottage.
We will definitely go back, and would pick this particular cottage again!
Thank you Betsy and Lise for sharing your wonderful corner of the world with us.

We had a lovely relaxing week at Beach Cottage. It is an idyllic location and perfect for total relaxation. When we arrived the owner Betsy was very helpful and showed us everything we needed. The cottage was spotless and had everything that we could possibly need. The gardens are beautiful and the private beach at the end of the garden was a real bonus. Betsy could not have been more helpful and was always on hand if needed to give you information about the local area and suggestions of places to visit. We had a great week here and would highly recommend a visit to Beach Cottage.

Unser kleines Paradies

Wir (Familie mit 2 Kindern 4 und 2 Jahre) haben 3 ½ Wochen im Beach Cottage verbracht.
Diese Unterkunft ist einfach traumhaft. Das Haus ist sehr persönlich und liebevoll eingerichtet. Man kommt an und fühlt sich gleich wohl.
Es ist sehr gut ausgestattet, in der Küche findet man eine große Auswahl an Geschirr und Geräten und eine kleine Auswahl an Lebensmitteln. Unsere große Tochter hat die elektrische Zitruspresse für sich entdeckt. So gab es jeden Morgen frisch gepressten Orangensaft.
Draußen auf der Terrasse gibt es viele Sitzmöglichkeiten und 2 Sonnenliegen. Von dort hat man einen wunderschönen Blick auf das Meer und wir konnten unsere Kinder wunderbar beim Spielen beobachten. Spielzeug für Kinder ist ausreichend vorhanden.
Die Kinder haben viel im Garten gespielt und haben Bekanntschaft mit Coco und Winnie, den Hunden von Betsy und Lise gemacht.
Vom Garten hat man einen direkten Zugang zum Steinstrand in einer Bucht. Zum Baden benötigt man auf jeden Fall Badeschuhe.
Betsy und Lise, wir danken Euch sehr für die schöne Zeit, die wir bei Euch verbringen durften. Wir werden diesen Ort und Euch sehr vermissen. Hoffentlich sehen wir uns irgendwann einmal wieder.

Just a 20 minute drive from Alicante, the ancient fishing town of Villajoyosa with golden sandy beaches is a 5 minute drive away and has an outdoor market, bodegas, restaurants featuring international cuisine as well as supermarkets for everyday needs. A variety of water-sports are also on offer. The lively resort of Benidorm is just 10 minutes away. Charco Bay, protected by magnificent cliffs that frame the deep blue Mediterranean sea, provides an idyllic location for the ultimate relaxing holiday in either, or both, of these two charming, character cottages. Set in their own lush tropical gardens which lead you directly onto the beach, they both offer havens of peace and tranquillity. Al fresco dining on the terraces outside the cottages or in the shady gazebo at the very edge of the gardens by the sea, offer unrivalled views of Charco Bay enhanced by spectacular sunrises and sunsets over the bay. 2011/12 refurbishments included flatscreen TV's with satellite, radio & DVD player in both cottages, dishwashers plus a working woodstove in our Sea View Cottage. In late 2013 we managed to achieve a WiFi connection! There's a price to pay for living in paradise!
