About EDWARD McLAUGHLIN

Retired engineer. Married & father of two.

I live just around the corner from 'torrenueva' & so am able to offer assistance if needed.

EDWARD McLAUGHLIN purchased this villa in 2013

Why EDWARD McLAUGHLIN chose Orihuela Area

I have visited this location at least twice a year for 26 years & have never tired of it. I have owned a property for that time & have purchased 'torrenueva' due to ease of travel to surrounding points of interest. More importantly , this is the 2nd healthiest place in the world to live.

What makes this villa unique

Location, location, location. Keenly priced to offer excellent value to potential clients. A detached house for the price of an apartment !

Car: recommended

Built around 2000 this detached house is within easy reach of excellent sandy beaches e.g. La Zenia, Dehesa de Campoamore, Cabo Roig & many others. The local micro climate is stated to be only the second in the World for health.

The famous Villamartin Plaza with it's fine selection of restaurants & bars is a few minutes by car or perhaps fifteen when walking. The Plaza provides al fresco dining in a warm & relaxing environment.

La Zenia Boulivard, the largest shopping mall in Alicante was opened in 2012 & offers something for everyone including seasonal entertainment. It is several minutes away by car but local buses also are available. The bus stops are a couple of hundred yards from the house & run frequently to & from the beaches etc.,

The town of Torrevieja is several miles away to the North offering many facilities including the largest outdoor market on The Costa Blanca South. There are also many local markets close by that include most days.

The historic cities of Murcia, Orihuela & Cartagena are well worth visiting, particularly the Roman Museum of Cartagena with it's amphitheatre.

For lovers of natural history the Costa Blanca South has many Salt Lakes that provide habitats for birds & animals, e.g. Pink Flamingos, Egrets, Avocets etc.,

Just several miles South are the San Pedro salt lakes which welcomes a wide variety of birds & so offers a pleasant change to sea & sun bathing. At this small town it is also possible to enjoy mud bathing which is believed to have health benefits due to an abundance of minerals.

Great house for a great holiday.

  • 5 of 5

The house itself is a bit different as when you come off the street you are on the top level with the bedrooms, you have to go downstairs to reach the living room and kitchen. Had air con in both bedrooms and the living room which is a must for me. The house was fitted out with some nice furniture, a lot of houses you rent have cheap pine etc so this was a nice touch. Wifi was included although not fast enough to stream for your firestick etc. All in all a nice place to stay, I would recommend it, you will need some transport though as it's pretty far out from the seafront etc.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review Marie ! Please note that I am receptive to your suggestion & have increased the Wifi to 30 mb/s. I believe this improvement should be adequate for the Firestick. Thank you again ! Edward.

Superb accommodation

  • 5 of 5

Edward and Anna,

We had an amazing long break in your villa. The villa offers excellent facilities and everything needed for a most comfortable stay.

You were kind enough to provide a cot for when our daughter visited with our granddaughter.

You offer a kindly welcome and offers of help with anything needed. As we know the area quite well we didn't require much assistance but it was good to know that it was available.

The villa is well equipped and spotlessly clean on arrival. Wifi was a bonus too.

See you next year

Best Wishes

Linda and Trev

Highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

Highly recommended. A very nice holiday rental property in an expat community . The owners Edward and Anna could not have been more helpful and kind. The expat community wasn't our style, but if it is what you are after you couldn't do better. It provided a good base for us for days out within easy reach of Cartagena, Alicante, Murchia and lovely mountain ares. It is very easy to find Gluten free food in supermarketsand the area and you couldn't do better than Restaurante La Herredura in Los montesinos

Owner's Response: Dear David & Karin, Thank you for your kind words about your recent holiday. Anna & I wish you every success in your search for a 'Finca' in order to allow you to pursue the art of glass sculpture while in Spain ! It was a real pleasure to meet you both & hopefully we will see you again before long ! Best regards, Edward & Anna.

Mi casa es tu casa

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Ed and Ana for a very enjoyable stay in your villa.

We had a really great time during our four week stay and found the villa to be a real home from home - comfortable, spacious and well equipped. It was ideal for the two of us but could easily cater for a family. It was perfect for our needs and exactly as described in the listing.

We also liked the fact that the house was well located for sightseeing in the local area, whether going up the coast to Santa Pola, southwards to Cartagena and the Mar Menor, as well as going inland to Murcia and the many towns and villages close by.

Ed and Ana were the perfect hosts and the service that we received, from the moment we made our initial enquiry right through to going home at the end of the holiday, was excellent and could not be faulted.

We would not hesitate in recommending this villa to others, and are seriously thinking about returning there next year ourselves.

Это был великолепный отдых

  • 5 of 5

На вилле у Эдварда мы гостили всей семьей целый месяц. Это был великолепный отдых! Отличное место - очень красиво и очень тихо. Есть уютный внутренний дворик, где с удовольствием играли дети (2-х и 11-ти лет). Для комфортной жизни в доме есть абсолютно все. В каждой комнате - кондиционеры (мы были в августе, в самую жару). Вилла находится на возвышенности, поэтому нет большой влажности, как в домах возле моря. На 3-м этаже есть солярий, оттуда открывается прекрасный вид. Мы даже иногда пили там вечером кофе, наслаждаясь закатом.

Эдвард и Анна - замечательные хозяева, очень внимательные, помощь окажут в любой ситуации.

Мы брали в аренду машину, до пляжа добирались за 5 минут, ездили в окрестностях по удивительным местам. Впечатлений у нас и детей море!

Эд, Анна, огромное Вам сппсибо! Это был, действительно, лучший наш отдых за последние годы!

Марина, Дима, Маруся и Ярослав
