SUPERB HOLIDAY & LONG-TERM RENTAL APARTMENT IN DREAM HILLS 2, ORIHUELA COSTA

Los Altos Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Modern 2 bed, 2 bath property sleeps up to 6 with stunning solarium views

This modern apartment (with Wi-Fi) on Dream Hills 2, Orihuela Costa, just a short drive from Torrevieja & close to areas such as Villamartin & Playa Flamenca. It has 2 bedrooms (one double, one twin) with further sleeping space within the main living areas if required. Also, a cot is provided for a young child.

The property has been enhanced by enclosing an outside terrace so that it can be used all year round and makes the rest of the apartment more spacious.There are also 2 bathrooms & both have a WC/wash basin with one having a bath/shower, the other a shower unit - excellent for larger group sizes!

The kitchen has good facilities whilst the living area has dining facilities as well as a TV + DVD/Video. In addition to a balcony the property has a large, private roof solarium that's perfect for sunbathing or having a BBQ . Air conditioning units have been installed in the lounge and both bedrooms.

You can also use 2 communal swimming pools approx 50 yards away and though not Olympic size, it is great for a refreshing dip!

Getting about: We would recommend that you have your own car whilst renting this apartment. Whether you are flying into Alicante or Murcia, there are numerous car rental options,

Generally speaking fuel in Spain is a little cheaper than in the UK so take advantage and explore as much of the Costa Blanca as you can. Getting about is remarkably straightforward to an easy-to-follow road network although in order to assist with this, in the apartment you will find directions to some of the major attractions as well as essential amenities.

Enhanced features: We have enhanced the lower terrace / balcony so that it can be used all year-round. During the summer the windows can be opened so you benefit from the breeze but in the cooler months you can shut the wind out yet still benefit from the sunshine.

In doing this it also makes the rest of the property feel bigger. You can choose to eat on the terrace rather than the main living room or instead if you may prefer to have a bit of peace and quiet whilst others watch TV, you can get away from it. This will particularly benefit larger groups and people who rent the property for longer periods and therefore more likely to spend more time inside.

Although not a special consideration, the double glazing also offers extra security benefits whilst also helping to minimise external noise and retain heat (cool or hot).

NEW - we have now added Wi-Fi broadband to the property so that you can use your laptop / tablet / mobile (or other device) to get online during your stay. This is an optional extra but we are confident this will save you money versus the cost of roaming charges from your mobile provider.

I own the property with my wife and my in-laws. We all love the time we have there (we wish we could be there more often). My father-in-law is the one that is more practical and so undertakes a bit more of the DIY side of things whilst I tend to look after the property management (i.e. rental contracts, etc). As for my wife and her Mum, they bring a feminine touch to the place and so they're the ones who think about colour schemes and the things that make the place more homely and comfortable!

We now have a daugher and so the apartment really comes into it's own. It's so great to be able to take her over to Spain and know we've got our own safe space. It has also made us look at the apartment differently so in the last year or so we have started to make the apartment a little more child friendly.

All in all, we are all really passionate about renting our property out and take it very seriously. However, with that comes great responsibility when you think people are quite often deciding to have their only or main holiday in your property and are using their hard-earned money to pay for it.

Therefore, we go to great lengths to make sure the experience of booking the property is straightforward and hassle-free. If people are used to booking a 'package deal', going straight to the Owner can be a bit unnerving and so I think it is important to show this option is no less professional whilst also being more personal.

As for the property itself, we pride ourselves on continually improving it. Over the years we've spent a lot of time and money so that each and every year it gets better and the number of return guests is testament to the fact that we're getting it right.

Ian Turley purchased this apartment in 2006

I think the fantastic reviews say everything. We love our property but we're biased. However, the amazing comments from all kinds of different groups is amazing - it doesn't seem to matter how young or old guests are, whether adults only or with children, everyone seems to really enjoy not only the apartment but the area.

I would encourage people to use our property as a base as to only see the immediate area would be a missed opportunity - there is some great places to visit and explore within a short drive. However, if all you want is to put your feet up and relax then that's fine and we've made sure you can do that both inside and outside.

The apartment strikes the right balance of being homely without feeling like you're stopping in someone else's home.

We have air con throughout whereas most properties of this size may only have it in the lounge and/or 1 bedroom; we have units in both bedrooms and the lounge.

We've effectively extended the inside of the property by enclosing a terrace. You can open all the windows when it's warm but it makes this a space you can use all day and all year making it feel much more comfortable.

We now offer Wi-Fi Internet access to our guests as we know people want this.

Overall, the property is furnished to a very good, comfortable standard.

Ihave just returned from a 9 day stay at the property in dream hills 2.Before leaving the UK i had had good communications with Ian regarding what the apartment had to offer and its location. I was met on arrival (as arranged) to find the apartment very clean and with a layout that would suit most people. I really liked the size of the rooftop solarium for sitting unbothered in the sun. The aircon was a welcome advatage in the bedroom at night. I know the area and found the location suited me very well but you do need a car to enjoy the surrounding area. There are a great many good shops;supermarkets;bars restaurantsand night clubs to enjoy within a 5~10km drive. The beaches are clean and most have lifeguards for peace of mind with children. Close to the property are 2 nice sized swimming pools with good lounging areas. All in all the property has everything you need to make your stay comfotable in a nice area wher you can soak up Spains wonderful sun !
Recommended for:  Age 55+, Sightseeing, Families with Teenagers, Families with Young Children
Owner's Response: Thanks for your comments Paul.

Whilst a car isn't essential I would agree that if you really want to take advantage of the area then it is recommended. With some wonderful towns, beaches, bars, restaurants, etc all within such a short drive it would be a shame not to make the use of them. There are some maps in the property to make things easier.

As for the roof solarium, it is the bit of the property that everybody loves! It is big and has great, panoramic views but is also very private too. We've also made sure that whether you want to lounge in the sun or prefer to sit in the shade reading a book or having a bite to eat, you can.

You're right about the air-con as well Paul - it was more essential than ever this summer as it was the hottest for many years. We're glad that we have put air con in both bedrooms as well as the lounge!

Finally, I'm pleased that you felt everything went smoothyl re booking the apartment and being met there. We put a lot of effort into making sure it is as plain sailing as possible.

We look forward to welcoming you back in the future!

Cheers
Ian
Thanks again

Owner's Response: Thanks Margo, so pleased you had a great time and the fact that you came back and immediately booked for September was lovely (and it sounds like you are already thinking ahead to June).

Best wishes,
Ian

Just back from a week in the sun. Spent most of it on the roof terrace which is brilliant. Loads of room to spread out either in the sun or shade if needed. Plenty of sunbeds and chairs. Very private area but so easy to nip downstairs to the kitchen for a drink!
The whole flat was extremly well-equipped. It felt like home. The air con is a bonus which we used every night.
The communication from the owner before, during and after the holiday has been exceptional and the keyholders met us on time.
There are bars and shops within walking distance but I would recommend a car as there are plenty of places to visit.

CLEAN, GREAT PRICE, GREAT AREA!

29th May- 14th June 2012
ON ARRIVAL WE FOUND THE APARTMENT TO BE IN A CLEAN CONDITION, GOOD SIZE FOR A FAMILY OF 4. WELL EQUIPPED, NOT ONLY THOSE THINGS YOU MAY SOMETIMES NEED, NEEDLE AND THREAD, ETC BUT ALSO A GREAT SELECTION OF BOOKS AND A CUPBOARD WITH A COOL BOX, KIDS NET, ETC. A REAL HOME FROM HOME. WE FELL IN LOVE WITH THE PRIVACY OF THE ROOF TERRACE. KIDS HAD FUN COOLING OFF USING THE OUTDOOR SHOWER.
MASSIVE AMOUNTS OF PARKING, QUIET AREA, EVIDENTLY DUE TO ONLY A HANDFUL OF OTHER APARTMENTS BEING USED AT THE SAME TIME (JUNE). KITCHEN HAD EVERYTHING WE NEEDED FOR THOSE DAYS WE ATE IN. SHORT WALK TO ALDI, NO CAR NEEDED. SHORT WALK TO 'VIA PARK' COMPLEXES IF YOU FANCY A DRINK.

SWIMMING POOL- TRIED BOTH POOLS. AGAIN WE NEVER SHARED A POOL WITH MORE THAN 4 OTHERS, USUALLY WE FOUND WE WERE ON OUR OWN.

AREA:
WE THOUGHT THAT WITH IT BEING OUR 3RD YEAR STAYING AROUND THIS REGION, WE MAY RUN OUT OF THINGS TO DO. HOW WRONG WE WERE!
WE VISITED 'TERRA METICA' IN BENIDORM- SPAINS ANSWER TO ALTON TOWERS. THEN WE HAD A DAY OUT IN ALICANTE WHERE WERE PARKED AT THE TOP OF SANTA BARBARA CASTLE, WITH IT'S BREATHTAKING VIEWS. THE CASTLE IS FREE BUT WE PAID 4 EUROS EACH TO GO INTO THE PIRATE EXHIBITION. THEN WE DROVE INTO THE CENTRE AND GOT ON TO THE MAGNIFICENT 'SANTISIMA TRINIDAD' SHIP, A FOUR MILLION EURO EXACT REPLICA OF THE ONE SUNK IN 1804.

WE'D RECOMMEND THE 'WITCHERY' IN THE PLAYA FLAMENCA COMPLEX. WE MANAGED TO HAVE A CURRY, PAELLA AND A BURGER/PIZZA & CHIPS FROM THE MENU ALL AT ONCE- SO WE ATE WHAT WE WANTED & SO DID THE KIDS!
IF YOU HAVE A CAR, A TRIP TO THE NATURAL MUD BATHS IN LO PAGAN IS A GOOD (& COMPLETELY FREE) DAY OUT. WALK OUT TO THE WOODEN PLATOONS AND DOWN THE LADDERS INTO THE LAKE, COVER YOURSELF WITH THE WARM MUD, COME OUT & DRY OFF IN THE SUN & THEN WASH OFF. (RUB ONTO BAD JOINTS)
TAKE A DIP IN THE SEA BEHIND YOU TO COMPLETELY REMOVE. CABO ROIG FOR SHORT WALKS ALONG THE COAST, FREE PARKING AND BEAUTIFUL MARINA. WE TOOK THE KIDS ROCK POOLING & CAUGHT A FEW FISH & SMALL CRABS. FROM PREVIOUS YEARS WE RECOMMEND: LA RUFETE FOR QUADDING AND HORSE RIDING, ENGLISH SPEAKING- OUT NEAR SAN MIGUEL. GO KARTS ON THE MAIN ROAD- N332.

PLAYA FLAMENCA FOR A WIDE RANGE OF RESTAURANTS/PUBS TO CHOOSE FROM- ALL UNDER ONE ROOF. TORREVIEJA FOR KIDS FUN FAIR RIDES. LOVELY PROMENADE, BOAT TRIPS.

Thanks Ian for a comfortable, problem-free stay, we think the roof solarium will be hard to beat! Sarah & Paul- Bristol
Owner's Response: Thanks Sarah & Paul for your lovely and comprehensive review - seeing your list of things you did made me realise how much more there is still for us to see and do and we've been going to this area for best part of 10 years. Thanks again and I look forward to welcoming you back. Cheers, Ian
