BEACH COTTAGE

Sleeps4
Bedrooms 2

Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 2 - 3 nights

Overview

Villajoyosa Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Two beach-front cottages, 2 bedrooms each, 40 minutes to Alicante airport

Our unique BEACH COTTAGE sleeps 4 (3 beds), SEA VIEW COTTAGE sleeps 5 (3 beds + sleep sofa)

Both are set in a tropical garden with glorious sea views and a pergola-covered patio. The sea laps at the pebbly beach on secluded Charco Bay, where we snorkel and swim. A Moorish lookout tower is at the tip of our cove. Both rentals have two bedrooms, a bath with shower, a kitchen & living/dining room, plus separate terraces equipped for al fresco dining and sunbathing. Rent both for a large family or a group of friends, or rent separately. Good trekking options start from the cove, lead to adjacent villages with magnificent Mediterranean views. There's good fossil hunting along local trails that wind through Moorish terraced agricultural lands where artichokes and almonds used to be cultivated. The skyline of Alicante, 25 kilometres south on the coast, is visible from the property. The cultural town of Altea, once the haunt of Picasso and Miró, is approximately 20 kilometres north. You can fly to Alicante or take the AVE (bullet) train from Madrid which takes 2.5 hours. If you are here for any length of time, Valencia is a wonderful destination, only 1.5 hours away by car.

Details for Beach Cottage 2 Bedrooms, Sleeps 4, 1 Bathroom

This cottage has panoramic views of the sea from every vantage point. Its private terrace overlooks the exotic gardens containing tropical plants and original artwork. A pergola is perched over the Mediterranean sea where you can while away hours and truly relax. This is not your normal rental cottage, the decor has a special flair throughout. Colour galore. As in Sea View Cottage, the master bedroom has a queen bed and the second bedroom has a standard single bunk bed (2). The bathroom is fully tiled and has a large shower. The kitchen overlooks the sea and the outdoor patio has dining for 6+ and a BBQ. The property has both air-conditioning/heating. Choose between hypo-allergenic and/or down bedding. Bath and beach towels are provided. Amenities include a washing machine, iron+board for guest's use, a small library, TV with built-in radio and DVD player and WiFi.

About Betsy Floistad

Betsy is tri-lingual thanks to her Norwegian father, American mother and having lived in Spain since she was 2. Betsy studied and worked abroad for 8 years in places far and wide, including Oslo, London, Aix-en-Provence and Boston before she settled at Charco in 2001.

Betsy Floistad purchased this cottage in 1966

Why Betsy Floistad chose Villajoyosa

This place is unique. It is absolutely one of the last untouched enclaves along the Costa Blanca coast.

What makes this cottage unique

We accept pets and kids. The property is fenced. Free parking. Private access to the beach. You won't believe how nice it is here. Bring your kayak, your mountain bike or just your hiking shoes to take advantage of the region. Don't forget your water shoes for the rocky beach.

Guestbook comments from the manager

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.

wie immer - alles Bestens

  • 5 of 5
Sind zum zweiten Mail hier gewesen, und wie schon beim ersten Mal, hat es wieder sehr gut gefallen. Angefangen von der herzlichen Gastfreundlichkeit der Besitzerin, über die Sauberkeit der Finka, bis hin zum Wetter und Strand, den wir fast für uns alleine hatten. Ganz zu schweigen vom morgendlichen Ausblick beim Frühstück direkt aufs Meer. Wir werden auch nächstes Jahr wiederkommen.

Gorgeous beach home!

  • 5 of 5
Betsy's beach home could not have been more perfect. Incredible views of the sea, cozy house, scenic views. Best of all, Betsy is awesome and a tremendous host. She's extremely helpful, friendly, and you walk away feeling like you made a new friend. Thanks for your hospitality and restaurant recommendations, Betsy!
PS - We loved the restaurant El Posit nearby - check it out and order the tapas!

Wild

  • 5 of 5
We had a fantastic stay at Beach Cottage in early/mid-May. The cottage is beautiful - the photos online don't really capture the big open spaces and clean, bright rooms. Although very handy from Alicante airport (the drive is less than 30 minutes and only a few minutes drive from the lovely Villajoyosa), once at the cottage you feel like you've escaped into the wilds of Spain. It has a lovely remote feel (just what we wanted) and we nearly always felt that the beach was our own private one since very few others used it in the week we were there. We have a 3 year old daughter who roamed about freely and safely around the very substantial grounds around the house and there were plenty of buckets and spades (plus a paddling pool) to keep her happy. Betsy and Lise were extremely welcoming and helpful. We will definitely be back.

Our two cottages are a 20 minute drive to Alicante, a 5 minute drive to golden sandy beaches in El Campello or the ancient fishing town of Villajoyosa with its Thursday outdoor market, bodegas, restaurants of all cuisines as well as supermarkets for everyday needs. The Costa Blanca offers a variety of water and mountain sports. The lively resort of Benidorm is 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 our two charming cottages. Set in a lush tropical garden the cottages share private access to the beach and are havens of peace and tranquility. Al fresco dining on private terraces or in the shady pergola at the edge of the gardens offer unparalled views of Charco Bay and its Moorish Tower. Amenities include flatscreen TVs with built-in radios & DVD players, there's a satellite dish and dishwashers. Sea View Cottage has a working wood stove. Plus, we finally have WiFi, albeit temperamental!
