Overview

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.

About Ian Turley

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

Why Ian Turley chose Los Altos

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 are 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.

What makes this apartment unique

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 and we keep it that way. So when we are there, we always set aside time to do any repairs or touch up the paintwork, and generally think about how we can improve the apartment. When I think about how much it has changed in the last few years it is amazing and I hope to keep saying that for many years to come.

Guestbook comments from the owner

e had a great 5 week holiday at your apartment at Dream Hills 2.



There are a couple of supermarkets close by which was handy. There is also the interesting "beach bus" into Playa Flamenca and all in all we managed really well without hiring a car. We divided our time between exploring the area on foot and sitting on the great solarium and generally just relaxing. Although it was January / February, most of the time we were very lucky with the weather.



Ian, the Owner, arranged for us to be met by Johnny and Juliana at the airport. That all went really well and they took us back to the apartment. They were a really nice couple who were very helpful and got our break off to a lovely start and they stayed in contact with us during the 5 weeks.



Everything in the apartment was fine - it was well equipped, very clean and was everything we needed. It was just the 2 of us and so plenty of space but I imagine that bigger groups would feel fine.



All in all the time went all too quickly but many thanks to Ian for making for making the whole process of booking etc run smoothly.



Best Wishes

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 !

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

A very nice holiday

  • 5 of 5
First of all, the communication from the owner before, during and after the holiday has been exceptional and the keyholder met us on time. The key holder was punctual and very helpful. The apartment was clean and well maintained and with a layout that would suit most people. All of the facilities worked really well and we were all very comfortable for the whole fortnight.
We really liked the size of the rooftop solarium (marvelous !) for sitting unbothered in the sun. Loads of room to spread out either in the sun or shade if needed. Plenty of sunbeds and chairs.
With a car neither Torrevieja (town, harbour, beach, market on Friday) or La Zenia (beaches, shopping center) are far away (only a 5 minutes drive).
We would recommend this property to everybody, both young and old, and would hope to stay here again on any future visits to this area.
Thanks to Ian (the owner) and John and Juliana (the keyholders) for helping us have the perfect holiday!

Owner's Response: Many thanks for taking the time to post your review.

I certainly agree a car is recommended and I'd say 7/10 guests do. However, by no means essential and many don't and it all depends on the type of holiday you look for.

Anyway, I'm pleased you enjoyed the apartment - everyone loves the roof solarium - and I look forward to hearing from you in the future.

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.
