About the property

Casa Tranquillity Is The Only Fully Adapted Villa In Moraira On The Costa Blanca

Designed on one level this beautiful dual purpose 2 bedroom 2 Bathroom Villa with private pool is suitable for both able and less able guests. We can supply free of charge every conceivable item to give clients with limited mobility the holiday of a lifetime. When not required, the additional equipment is removed prior to the let. The Villa is secluded and is located in a very quiet part of the town.

It is built on the side of a hill overlooking El Portet valley with a large level terrace looking out to sea. El Portet is the most desirable part of Moraira, with Moraira itself being the jewel in the crown of the Costa Blanca. The Villa is half a mile from the secluded El Portet beach.

About David and Elizabeth Davison

David and Liz live in the village of Roydon in the UK.

We also own our own villa in Moraira which is used by our friends and family.

Our business 1st Call mobility is one of the largest mobility companies in the UK. We have a wealth of experience dealing with the less able. Our parents suffered with mobility issues and when we decided to buy and convert Casa Tranquility we used all our experience to ensure everything was in place to ensure our guests have a safe and enjoyable holiday.

David and Elizabeth Davison purchased this villa in 2010

Why David and Elizabeth Davison chose El Portet

We chose this property for its privacy and outstanding views.

We know too well that people with limited mobility spend lots of time around the villa.

We were looking for somewhere that was elevated, had all day sun and good views both out to sea and up into the mountains.

This villa meets all those requirements. Our visitor book located in the villa is full of wonderfull stories from many of our past guests. more and more are returning year after year to their home in the sun.

What makes this villa unique

Casa Tranquility is all on one level. With extra wide doors,

one of the two bathrooms has been specially developed with a wheel in shower, easy access toilet and wash basin and plenty of grab rails to make it safe to use.

All the beds are electrically operated and can have side rails and lift poles fitted if required.

The lounge has a lazy boy suite with 2 reclining chairs, one of them electrically operated with stand assist.

Out in the pool area is a new Gazebo to give you lots of shade.

The optional pool hoist enables you to be safely lifted from its own special chair or a wheelchair and to be easily lowered into the pool.

In June 2014 pool has has been installed keeping the pool at 26 degrees between April and October.

Note the pool heater is turned off during the winter from November to the end of March.

We have placed in storage at the back of the villa a whole range of aids that can be used free of charge by our guests.

When not in use all the items are stored away so that able bodied guests can enjoy the villa without any bits in the way.

All these items are free to use but must be ordered at least 2 weeks before your holiday starts to ensure they are in place for your arrival.

Villa was immaculate, everything worked and no pro

  • 5 of 5

We were delighted when we arrived. The villa was very accessible and pool hoist was in place. We would recommend the villa for anyone. Information on how to reach the villa was clear.

There was a power cut when we were there. We had to text owners to ask how to get bed working again. Their response was immediate and helpful.

We visited various restaurants while we were there, but Oona's in the town was great.

Excellent .

  • 5 of 5

Ideally suited for us, especially for my wife as all the disabled facilities were there. The location was great as we both like Moraira very much.

Overall we had a lovely stay, and Steve and Sharon were very helpful.

Yes to the first 4 items below (tips), the 3 restaurants we visited were good, but I can't remember their names. I think the best was Nidos or something like that!

Owner's Response: We are delighted you had a great time at Casa Tranquility. I believe the restaurant was El Nidos and yes we agree a great place to eat, although the rib shack takes some beating. We thank you for your support and look forward to having you stay at our villa in the future Best wishes David and Liz Davison

Casa Tranquility - Aptly Named!

  • 5 of 5

The villa really is aptly named. My wife and I stayed for two weeks in late September/early October. We drove down to Moraira from Santander on the Sunday after arriving on the ferry on Saturday evening. We enjoyed the (seven hour!) drive down and had so difficulty in finding the villa. After such a long drive the evening swim in the pool was absolute heaven!

We found the villa to be absolutely spotless with everything we needed for an enjoyable stay (but read on!). I am an above-knee amputee and a wheelchair user so my needs are relatively simple. However it is evident that a great deal of thought has gone into equipping the villa to cater for virtually all types of disabilities. The internal doors are wide and the bathrooms well-equipped. The kitchen has everything we needed and the living area is comfortable. Needless to say, with everything on one level, wheelchair access to all rooms, the terrace, the pool and the car-parking area is straightforward and trouble free. The high external wall, hedge and electric gate provide a feeling of security.

The villa is not significantly overlooked, being high up on the side of the valley. This means that the view from the terrace is a panorama over the valley itself. Only a small number of the other villas were occupied, it being towards the end of the season, which meant that our stay was well... exceptionally tranquil.

Moraira is an absolutely charming town with lots of good restaurants and a number of well-stocked supermarkets (we even saw Marmite on the shelves...).

And so yes, we HAVE booked for next year - but this time I'm going to ask Steve the caretaker to make sure there are some cold 'Mahou cinco estrella' beers in the fridge (he introduced me to them) for when we arrive next time from Santander...

An amazing holiday!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for providing us the perfect villa for a gorgeous holiday in Spain! I am a full time wheelchair user but couldn't ask for better facilities than those provided at Casa Tranquility. The suggestions that I did make have been responded to and taken on board, we really couldn't ask for better service than that!

The pool hoist was fantastic, the beds really comfy, the bathroom and kitchen very accessible yet still tasteful- I'm really so appreciative to people like yourselves that make accessible holidays possible and absolutely gorgeous.

We will return- thank you.

Owner's Response: Hi Kellie and Alex Thank you for such a lovely review, we are delighted you had a good time at our villa Casa Tranquility. Feed back like this makes all the work and expense creating the villa seem so worthwhile. Our manager contacted us following your visit and said that you had left a note in the comments book saying that if you were to be really picky then a drop down rail in the accessible bathroom and a reacher/ grabber would have been a benefit. Just to let you know both these issues have already been addressed a new drop down rail has been fitted and a grabber is hanging on the hall stand. We really appreciate these suggestions because despite our expertise in the industry only people who use accessible properties really know exactly what they need to make their vacations special. Your ideas will benefit all our clients in the future We look forward to welcoming you in the future Best wishes David and Lizzy

El Portet

Nestled in a pretty bay on the south-east coast of Spain, the small resort town of Moraira is an oasis of traditional charm on the busy Costa Blanca, a favoured holiday spot and retirement haven. Moraira has grown from a small fishing village into an attractive resort surrounded by luxury villas without losing its Spanish character, which is entrenched in its impressive marina, variety of shops, colourful weekly markets, atmospheric old town, and its waterfront restaurants and bars. The resort is easily accessible, being equidistant (about 62 miles/100km) by motorway from both Alicante and Valencia airports. For those who enjoy a taste of the high life, it is also within easy reach by car or bus of the busier, glitzier Costa Blanca resorts of Javea, Calpe and bustling Benidorm. The countryside around the holiday destination of Moraira offers some lovely scenery dotted with unspoilt villages to explore. The relaxed traditional ambience of Moraira is accompanied by two main beaches with Blue Flag status, separated by a promontory crowned with a medieval fortress. There are also plenty of sport and leisure facilities on offer.
