Overview

About the property

2 Bedroom home with Pool and Roof Solarium, Close to amenities and Beach

Hello and thank you for choosing to read about our holiday home.

Set amongst the wonderful views of Los Altos ('The Heights' in English), Our home has plenty to offer - whether you're stopping over for a short winter break or a two week summer holiday for you and the kids, 'Casa de Gienia' can fulfill your needs!

We've recently taken it upon ourselves to update and refurbish nearly the whole place including a luxurious new bathroom, modern high quality kitchen, and completely new furnishings throughout.

As can be seen from the pictures, one of the favourite attributes to our abode is the fact that we are almost literally on top of the pool (the access gate is in front and to the left our front door.)

This makes for easy supervision of the kids, and even for great picturesque views (Check out the roof pictures).

In our opinion, our home is perfectly suited for Small Families and Couples.

The surrounding area has plenty going on and yet our actual Urbanisation is very tranquil - NEVER any loud noises from pubs or bars, and yet there are plenty only a 5, 10 or 20 min walk away. If you'd like something a little more in the clubbing region Torrevieja town is only a couple of kilometres away, easily accessable by the letter 'D' bus (Which stops just round the corner) or by taxi for a few euros.

Waterparks, go karting, 5 aside football pitches and indeed actual recreational parks with children's play areas are all close by.

Our nearest supermarket is Consum, at around a brisk 6 minute walk away offers up plenty if you fancy those relaxing home-cooked meal nights at home, and is very reasonably priced.

If one day you find that you can't sleep early morning, get yourself upstairs and watch the sunrise over the mediterranean (I know I have a couple of times, and it's very peaceful.)

There's just so much going on and I'm unable to list everything on here without going overboard so I'll be bullet pointing the rest. If you'd like to know anything else in the mean time, please don't hesitate to ask.

Some last points to remember:

- Great views from the solarium

- Plenty of peace and tranquility

- Basic Sky television

- One of the closest properties to the pool

- Beautiful dual waterfall and standard shower

- Modern high quality kitchen

- BBQ for use

- Open recreational space, 5 a side football pitch and kids play areas all very close

- Plenty of bars and restaurants within a 5-15 minute walk

- Even more within a 20 minute walk

- Closest beach is only 1 mile away, and many others a little further either side

- Air conditioning

- Ample parking

Why Thomas Ash chose Torrevieja Area

The area is totally residential meaning no horrible concrete hotels scattered. A real home away from home.

Amazing place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We have recently returned from 2 weeks staying in this property, and what a wonderful little property it is. It was very clean on our arrival. The home had everything you would need to make your holiday really pleasurable. It was lovely sitting outside the front door in the mornings for breakfast overlooking the lovely pool. The upstairs solarium is a real suntrap for all sun worshippers. A large parasol was provided for guests who require some shade. It was so hot during our holiday that this got a lot of use. It was lovely sitting here at 7.30am in the morning and watching the sun rise. We also watched an electrical storm one evening from here which was amazing to see.

The shower was great as you could choose either waterfall shower or a normal. The shower was over the bath so you also had the option of using the bath. This was great for getting rid of all suntan lotion used during the day.

The steps up to the roof terrace were quite steep and care had to be taken when carrying items up and down.

A very small kitchen, but we had no problems with this as it is well equipped with everything that would be needed whilst on holiday.

A lovely pool right opposite the property was fab. We were able to sunbathe on the roof terrace and when the pool area had gone quiet, we could look down to see an ideal time for us to pop over. We managed this several times and were able to have the pool area to ourselves. It does however get quite busy at certain times of the day, usually mid-late morning and late afternoon and into early evening.

If you don't mind walking, then a car is not required as everything is within walking distance if you are happy to walk for half hour. We found a couple of lovely bars within 5 minutes. 20 minutes uphill were some great English bars and 25 minutes down the hill were many more bars with the beach slightly further than this.

When we had any questions we wanted answering we emailed the owner and he responded almost immediately and usually within the hour.

The local bus into Torrevieja is well worth using with the bus stop almost outside the property and costing 1 Euro 35 per adult each way. We used the bus in and got a taxi home which was not expensive. Zenia Boulevard is well worth a visit .. very impressive!

We had an amazing holiday and are so glad that we chose this property as it was ideal for what we wanted. A relaxing 2 weeks in the sun in a very tranquil setting.

Thank you very much!!

Great place, clean, tidy, good location...

  • 5 of 5

Short drive from the airport, great to have basics on our arrival - tea, coffee. Local shops good, some nearby restaurants really lovely, excellent beaches nearby, too. Villa itself well featured, perfect sun-terrace - a real sun-trap - loved it! And the pool opposite could have been ours but for the occasional other residents. All very clean, tidy, well maintained. Definitely going to come back again, still lots of the area to discover.

Comfortable and evrything you require for an enjoyable break

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay as the location suited our requirements and we would not hesitate to recommend the accommodation,The property is situated in a quiet location, the pool and roof terrace are a bonus, however there are not many amenities or choice of restaurants in the immediate area and although there is a reliable bus service a car would be a great advantage to visit the attractions in the local area (as Taxis are very hit or miss)

Beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

I had a brilliant time staying at Tom's place. He was a great host very attentive while not being imposing which really made our stay even better. He gave some great restaurant recommendations!!

The property itself is gorgeous, all modern amenities that you could think of (even sky!) so the place felt home from home. The kitchen had cooker,stove,washing machine and big fridge -freezer so if you wanted to stay in and cook you could. Alternatively there were plenty of places around to eat out at too. The bedroom had comfy bed and big wardrobe - couldn't fault it. And the bathroom had lovely powerful shower and was clean and well kept. The lounge has a sofa and armchairs with good size TV, although we spent most of our time out enjoying the sun, it was perfect for us.

Upstairs solarium was huge - size of the house with a big parasol for shade so I don't understand previous comments..

Pool right outside property so can keep eye on little ones. 20 min walk from beach although we drove and 5 min walk to nearest supermarket and restaurants.

Overall have recommended this property to everyone as think it's great value property in a great location and for a great price. Couldn't fault it.
