About Tim Puddicombe

Tim and Sandra, British nationals, work and live in Dubai,United Arab Emirates, Middle East. Our intention is to spend several weeks of the year at the villa and it is our home, and not somewhere just to rent out. We are the second owner of the property during its lifetime of 35 years, and it has been extremely well maintained and cared for, and used by three generations of family. We fell in love with Moraira instantly when we found it, it has everything you would want for an enjoyable and everlasting holiday memory, a fantastic place to spend quality time with family, friends or even alone if you require a short break from the pace of “working life”. Our long term plan is to retire there.

Tim Puddicombe purchased this villa in 2012

Why Tim Puddicombe chose Moraira

The villa is particularly well equipped and well placed to enjoy a quality vacation. As this is a 'home' rather than just a holiday villa, the fittings and fixtures are of an exceptional quality and we will ensure if required there is a welcome pack of food and drink to see you through to the following day, so you really can just come in through the front door, unpack and relax. It boasts fabulous panoramic sea and mountain views that many comment on and remember. We are keen gardeners and enjoy good decor, and seek to continually improve the décor of such a quality villa. The solar heated pool, terraces - with both sun and shade, table tennis, outside summer kitchen and with a new barbecue and many outdoor dining spaces mean that guests often spend most of their stay at the villa. This is a very private and safe villa in a totally walled garden with electric gates at the end of a very quiet road. It has ample parking space within the premises for several vehicles, and has one garage.

What makes this villa unique

Stunning Views from every part of the house be it in the Day or Night.The whole area is outstandingly beautiful where one can take in the the tranquillity and serenity that nature offers an experience of a lifetime, unspoilt by over development, very green with mountains and much of the land is protected trust land and the coastline is some of the most spectacular in Spain. Moraira is high end quality and a very pretty 'real town', very safe to live in and walk around at night and with a lovely old part and a newer area which has been developed very sympathetically. It has sophisticated shops and restaurants as well as local tapas bars and boutiques and of course, the marina which is gorgeous. The town is vibrant, well managed and offers that “green’ environment. There are no higher rise buildings apart from two smaller legacy buildings which are not on the tourist path. It is a very clean and green environment, with plants everywhere, and is a really pretty town! It is an area considered by the World Health Organisation to have one of the most environmentally perfect climates in the world. Moraira has been sympathetically developed, retaining all the old Spanish charm, and is known as the jewel of the Costa Blanca. The town has a blue flag award-winning, clean and safe sandy beach, as well as another lovely sandy cove at El Portet.

On a clear day, magnificent views include east to Ibiza, Calpe’s famous Penon de Ifach and the stunning Montgo or 'Elephant' mountains. Access is exceptionally simple via the motorways and roads: Trains run into the heart of Valencia for day-trips and Barcelona and Madrid are within easy reach. And of yes, quality shopping areas aren’t far away in Alicante and Benidrom.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Tim and Sandra's 'Casa De Suenos' were as good as we had expected, everything was catered for, simple and professional. The instructions given to us beforehand were perfect and we would never in a million years found it without them. Facilities were top notch and we would definitely consider staying again. Also pleased they had made sure the weather was as good as it was.

Perfect for relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. Thought the arrival pack was a really nice touch especially as it included both beer and wine

Everything was clean and tidy and was well equipped. Fluffy white towels and nice bed linen always a good sign. The lay out took a bit of getting used to but with older kids worked out perfect. The villa can basically be two apartments so the kids 21,18 14 commandeered upstairs where teenagers do what teenagers do and were happy as. This meant parents could do what we do. Chill, relax have a glass of wine outside with fantastic views. The Naya was well used for both BBQ and evening meals. Pool was warm, all instructions in the folder worked well (only needed it once as a trip switch went)

The area itself is really nice. Strangely but fortunately there are very few hotels. What this means is that around El Portet and Moraira the clientele are more villa owners and renters. This allows for a more discerning and discreet type of holiday maker....if you get my drift... Sorry Tim but I cant recommend it in April, just in case we cant get in next year :-)

We will definitely be back

Casa de Suenos - House of Dreams

  • 3 of 5

Enjoyed very much living in Tim's villa, it felt like a real home from home, with its quirky features, spacious rooms and many individual touches, and definitely worth highlighting the spectacular views. We did have a number of issues, however, which we have brought to the owners' attention. The villa was not prepared for our arrival, it was not clean, there were various items scattered about the rooms including items of soiled clothing left by previous guests and none of the beds had been made up. Pam and Ken (who look after the villa for the owner) visited the day after our arrival and were surprised to see us in residence, were unaware of our booking and apologised on the owners' behalf, clearly some communication problem. Pam did some cleaning tasks there and then while Ken assisted us to get the two downstairs heaters working. Although the day time temperature was warm during our stay it was getting quite cold at night. Upstairs the advertised log fire has a fractured glass front and is not safe to use. The other upstairs heaters were only fixed after 5 days. We really liked the upstairs lounge and dining area but could not use it in the evening for much of our stay because it was not warm enough. This was disappointing. We also had problems with the new washing machine flooding the utility room due to a blocked waste pipe. In addition the aroma in the upstairs bathroom became increasingly unpleasant, a drain/sewer smell which we also reported. While we didn't allow any of these things to spoil an otherwise delightful holiday and one makes allowances for some unforeseen circumstances, we felt our stay overall did not quite live up to our expectations. We have contacted the owner twice by email since our return bringing these issues to his attention but so far have had no response. We are home almost a fortnight and have as yet not had our breakages deposit refunded.

Awesome villa with breathtaking views.

  • 5 of 5

I arrived at Casa de Suenos on February 5th, 2015 after flying into Valencia from Toronto. Tim's directions were excellent and I found the villa with no problems. Once I arrived, I obtained my key and the remote for the gate from the lock box; the entry was easy. Once I settled in, I called Ken and he was over with his wife Pam to give me a tour and to advise on how various items (heaters, televisions, etc.) worked. Being from Canada where we have flat driveways, I chose to park my car just in front of the gate; there was never an issue. The villa is situated on a hill and the views of the water and the Calpe Rock are stunning. The drive to Moraira takes about 7 - 8 minutes; I walked to town in 30 minutes. My wife arrived on February 28th and another couple came on the flight with her. The villa is basically comprised of two separate residences; our friends had the main floor all to themselves. Needless to say, my wife and our friends (all still working; I am retired) had an awesome time in Tim and Sandra's home. There was not a single issue in the 6 plus weeks that I stayed in the villa. I am already looking at dates for a return trip to Moraira next February and I would not hesitate to stay at Casa de Suenos in 2016.

Lovely quiet villa in Moraira

  • 4 of 5

We (a group of 6 40 something mums) arrived at the villa for our long girlie week end at mid day and everything was ready. We had a satnav to drive from the airport which was great until we got to Moraira then it took us over the tops of mountains and up dead ends that we couldn't turn round in and had to reverse back down the mountain! We should have read the detailed instructions sent to us by the owners as when we did we found Moraira town about a 7 minute car ride away and not a full hour that it took us! The villa is large and set out like two separate apartments however we only used the inside to cook and eat as the outside area was amazing. The views across the sea were fantastic and the naya a lovely place to eat al fresco which we did for every meal in the villa. There was absolutely everything you needed in the villa, even down to wine stoppers (which we needed for our sangria). There was a slight musty smell when we first arrived, however after opening all the doors and windows for a while this soon disappeared. The bedding was clean as was the villa, some of the crockery needed a rinse but this we thought was just due to lack of use and wasn't dirty. The pool was great although freezing but we did venture into it as our weather was lovely and we needed to cool off, we weren't in very long though! The owners were extremely helpful and we communicated by e-mail, our deposit was refunded quickly and we would have no hesitation in booking with them again. Thanks for the use of your villa we had a lovely relaxing time. One tip, you definitely need a car to get out and about.

Beautiful views, amazing villa, lovely pool

  • 5 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Plenty of space for us to lounge around, spent pretty much most of our time in the the Naya & pool. Villa clean & spacious. Weather was amazing, Moraira is fab and will definitely be coming back. Car required if your not the fittest as villa situated on hillside... I would quite happily move permanently to El Portet. Very clean and friendly, don't won't to shout to loud about it because it was not busy which is just what we wanted. Would also highly recommend 'The Wok' opposite the large car park where market is held. Good value & excellent choice banquet style. My best Spanish holiday so far. Thank you to owners Sandra and Tim for their kind welcome pack & detailed instructions.
