The flat is nicely situated between the port and the old town. We turned left to the port for a lovely morning coffee overlooking the harbour or turned right to walk up hill through the small streets of the town and to the open market on a Thursday morning. If you want easy access to the main sandy beach then you will find it a hike. We managed it once then used the car. Excellent restuarants on the beach area. We were there in January and most were open unlike other resorts. Well equiped kitchen and very clean. Spanish TV which is poor but DVD player so bought some second hand DVDs from across the road in Charity shop. Flat close to cinema which shows English films twice a week for Euro 6 each. Only problem was Spanish plumbing/drains, unpleasant smell in bathroom from drains and no expelair which I thought was a European standard or is it a European standard that only we British adhere too?

The location is great if you wish to access the port area. You can buy fresh fish at the local fish market every evening, have a drink at the seafront, go to the lovely grava beach or montanar, all within a five minute walk. If the weather is not perfect for the sea we really enjoyed the possibility to benefit of the inner pool, comprising a jacuzzy and a small pool for kids. There is plenty of shade and grass, even for the hottest hours of the day. Supermarkets and other facilities are at reach. You can really limit driving to the minimum staying at this appartement. We really liked also the possibility to hang our laundry on the attic terrace (they dried quick and with a child that is handy). Stairs are present in the apartment, that was the only flaw. For the rest the place is very well equipped and very nicely decorated. We also enjoyed finding some refreshments at our arrival and a very good supply of towels (including beach ones!)
All satisfactory and as advertised.
If renting again I would try to choose an apartment away from main road, less traffic noise.

No high buildings, no mass tourism, but pure authenticity. In short, Javea is the place where people live and spend their holidays, who like privacy but also the conviviality and wants to avoid the crowds.
General information about Javea
The history of Javea (Jávea in Castilian), or Xabia (in Valencian), dates back many centuries. The first evidence of human inhabitation of the area is 16,000 years old, found as wall paintings in the caves of the impressive mountain Montgó.
Javea is divided into three different areas: the old town ( El Pueblo ), the port ( El Puerto ) and El Arenal, the area around the sandy beach of Javea, where you can also find most of our holiday apartments. The old town hasn´t changed much over the last centuries and has retained some traditionally built houses, around the typical Spanish squares.
The port was built in 1871 with the main trade being raisins. After this trade was no longer in demand, the once large harbour diminished to a small fishing harbour. Later on, thanks to the increasing tourism, the port expanded with a marina suitable for yachts and powerboats. The Arenal is the commercial and tourist part of Javea. Here you can also find many restaurants, pleasant bars and a few discotheques which stay open till late.
