|Minimum Stay||7 nights|
Villa Santa Sabina is located in a quiet residential area in Balcon Al Mar with a sea view. Nearby there are several picturesque bays, which can be reached on foot like Ambolo or within a few minutes by car. Moreover, there are very large and wide sandy beaches along a turquoise coloured sea in and around Xabia, which invites you for swimming, sunbathing and long beach walks. The house lies just before the famous lighthouse of Cabo de la Nao. In a 10 -minute walk from the house towards the lighthouse, you can see the sun setting in the evening dramatically over the cliff and even see Ibiza on clear days - for instance from one of the local restaurants. The house is surrounded by a romantic garden (1000 m2) with pool (8x4m), pool complex, palm trees and old Mediterranean plants and has 4 sunny terraces. From the solarium (rooftop terrace) you can view the sea. Behind the house there is a built-in barbecue with stone seats. Everywhere here your spirits will soar and you can relax and unwind. Within walking distance you can reach several restaurants, and a well-stocked supermarket, which is open every day, a hairdresser's salon and a newspaper stand. By car it is about 10 minutes to Xabia 's town centre and other bays and sandy beaches. (More photos on request).
Recreation: The villa is ideally situated to explore further. In half an hour's drive, for example, you can reach the famous caves of Benidoleig. Or take a fantastic mountain tour around Bernia in Spain. Have you heard of Jalon with its popular wines? Or have you ever seen huge potholes? There is a lot to discover in the hinterland - and your culinary senses are very well taken cared of. So you can travel into a gigantic mountain range without much effort / dive or relax on various sandy beaches and / or rocky bays. It is so versatile that weeklong you can experience something different exciting or relaxing, without repetition. We would also be glad to give you more tips from our own extensive experience. But you should also have interest in seeing the town and do some shopping. Valencia offers as a great experience. But you should not miss a visit to the nearby coastal towns to enjoy all the variety. Even a trip to Ibiza or Majorca by ferry from the nearby Denia is possible every day.
Whoever wants to enjoy his holiday free from cooking, can reach 4 restaurants directly from the house on foot.
We live in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, in the high mountains. Our house in Javea is our second home by the sea. Because we feel so comfortable there too, we want to give this opportunity to you too. We ourselves visit the home 2 times a year and take care of everything with love. It should be your personal home too during your vacation.
Andreas Mueller-Horn purchased this villa in 1995
Our tenants feel happy instantly and tell us: 'The recovery begins immediately and so I really have some of my most valuable days of the year'. We offer you a second home away from your own. The garden is grown wonderfully with old plants and great atmosphere. From the solarium you can see the sun rise in the mornings and set again in the evening. This gives the feeling of experiencing a long day from start till the end. And of course, to watch a beautiful starry sky cosily in a deck chair, that is something quite interesting.
The proximity to Capo del la Nao is a cherry on top of a cake. Only a 10-minute walk and you are at one of the most beautiful viewpoints in Spain - with distant view and the nearby cliff line, with offshore islands and 160 metres vertically above the sea. Around the house there are a total of 8 Miradores - viewpoints to get the most beautiful country side views and sea views. They are all popular and well worth a day trip. Beauty in a little space.
Very quiet location in a central holiday resort. Sea view - proximity to the sea - with various beaches and wonderful rocky bays. Every day you can experience a new beach or take a tour into the mountains. A diverse holiday that offers something for everyone. Or take a stroll in the historic centre and enjoy yourself in the many cafes and restaurants and relax lying with a book at your own pool the next day - for us this is what holiday and relaxation means. Or, if you want, you can even take a trip to Ibiza or Majorca. Ferry ride from Denia - 20 km away from Javea.
This villa is situated in a beautiful area and has a rustic charm. Our visit was spoilt on several counts as follows: When we arrived we were surprised to discover there are 11 steps to reach the ground floor (entrance) level and carrying heavy suitcases and food boxes up these does not come easy for older people. The villa is described as suitable for elderly and infirm! Anyone arriving at night will struggle in the dark garden (tree surrounded) and will not find the outside lighting until they have entered the villa and found the switch - in the rear hallway.
Once inside the only instructions left for us were in german - apparently the cleaner forgot to leave english info. At this time of year it is quite cool in the evenings but the 2 gas heaters agai had no readable instructions. The TV is an old analogue model, there is no cable vision and the satellite box has only german and french programmes. The TV failed after 45 minutes and never worked again.
No information about the wifi which also faile after about 2 hours. Later on the local agent (Marie) came to the villa and told us we must visit the supermarket 5 miles away and pay to "re-charge" the Orange router to avail wifi. Though we did do this and paid 20 euros the wifi would not work. Marie came and tried but could not get a wifi signal so took the router to be tested at the weekend but was told it worked, we never saw it again and lost the 20 euros.
We were also told if the gas ran out we must find a garage/stockist to exchange a cylinder (up and down those steps!) and pay the fee. None of this is mentioned on the Homeaway website description of this accomodation and would have put us of making this booking. The villa would be a delightful place to stay in summer with hot weather and light evenings but as mentioned before the steps make it unsuitable for the elderly (we are both 78) and carrying heavy calor gas bottles up and down the steps could be very dangerous!
To summarise we feel the description of the villa should be amended in line with our comments.

We found the villa to be in an ideal location for a very private and relaxing holiday. A car is essential to reach the lively resorts of Arenal and Javea but there are also restaurants within walking distance. We particularly enjoyed the pool and garden. We would love to come back to the villa another time and would definitely recommend it to friends and family.
We had a lovely holiday and found the villa to be perfect for our needs. The BBQ area, outside shower and of course the pool were all great. The villa was clean and perfect for a family of 4, there aren't all the mod cons, but you're on holiday! I'd definitely recommend getting a car, although there are 2 good restaurants/ bars within walking distance and shop/bakery too. It's about 10 mins drive down to the Arenal.
Erneut haben wir wunderbare Urlaubstage in Javea in dem Haus "casa Santa Sabina" verbracht. Man fühlt sich in dem Haus einfach willkommen, alles ist sehr übersichtlich, es fehlt an nichts, ein richtiges Ferien zu Hause.
Sehr angenehm ist der vor der Kùche überdachte Vorplatz, dort haben wir meistens gegessen, wenn wir nicht den BBQ benutzt oder in dem wirklich guten Restaurant "casa Pepe", nur 2 Minuten zu Fuß, gespeist haben. Der kristalklare Pool ist eine große Freude mit der ihn umgebenden Relaxzone.
Die großzügige Lage in der älteren Urbanisation "balcon al mar" mit dem schönen Pinienbaumbestand lassen die Tage besonders erholsam sein. Wir sind froh nach langem Suchen ein solches Haus gefunden zu haben und durch die jederzeitige Ansprechbarkeit der Agentur vor Ort und den sehr freundlichen und hilfsbereiten Vermieter fühlt man sich bestens aufgehoben.
Wir waren jetzt zum zweiten mal in der "casa Santa Sabina" und haben uns erneut sehr, sehr wohl gefühlt. Es ist zum einen das Haus, das über alle Annehmlichkeiten verfügt, die einen Urlaub entspannt fühlen lassen, hervorzuheben die großzügige Poollandschaft und der freundliche und gut von der Küche zu erreichende BBQ, und zum anderen die gute, ruhige Lage in der unmittelbaren Umgebung als auch die Lage in der Region. Ohne großen Fahraufwand macht man gerne kleine Ausflüge in benachbarte Städtchen oder zu den verschiedenen Stränden. Wenn wir nicht auf der Dachterasse den Sonnenuntergang genossen haben, haben wir noch einen wunderschönen kleinen Spaziergang zum Leuchtturm "Cabo de la Nao" gemacht, von wo man einen der schönsten Blicke über die Küste in beiden Richtungen genießen kann, nicht umsonst ist dieser Blick in vielen Prospekten abgebildet. Das ist das Besondere an der Lage dieses Hauses: Es liegt auf dem "Cap", einer Art ins Meer vorgeschobenen Nase und liegt somit zentral für zahlreiche auch zu Fuß erreichbare "Miradores" ( Aussichtspunkte), die jeder für sich atembraubende Blicke eröffnet. Mein Mann und ich können das Haus unumschränkt weiter empfehlen und werden auch wieder dort einen Urlaub verbringen. Hinzu kommt, daß die Betreuung durch die Agentur vor Ort als auch die jederzeitige Hilfsbereitschaft des sehr freundlichen Vermieters ausgesprochen vorbildlich sind.
Wij hebben genoten van onze vakantie in casa sabina!
De tuin was zo mooi, het zwembad top, heerlijke relax stoelen rond het zwembad prima huis. Heerlijk overdekt terras in de schaduw.
Het huis was schoon en eenvoudig ingericht. Alles was aanwezig. We kunnen dit aanbevelen! Sunhouses regelde alles prima!
Mooie omgeving, wij kennen Javea al vele jaren, maar zo dicht bij de vuurtoren waren wij nog niet eerder!
Aan de eigenaar: niets te veel gezegd, alles prima!
Hartelijke groet en wie weet tot ziens!

Javea, the 'Pearl of Costa Blanca', is surrounded by lemon and orange groves. It is a charming little town with a marina, historic centre, a long promenade by the sea side from Arenal with many pubs and restaurants up to the harbour. Directly at Javea you will find various sandy beaches and coves, cliffs and fantastic mountains all around with varied scenery and views. The place is known for Europe's best healing climate (Mediterranean herbs grow everywhere, sea air and no industrial buildings). Javea and its surroundings invite you to take a stroll, walk, explore and enjoy. Recovery by itself is pretty fast here. However, you do not even need to move to Javea (10 minutes drive from the villa). A walk from the villa will take you up to the swimming bays Granadella, Ambolo and Las Barracas, or on the peninsula of Portichol, from where one can see the hinterland and mountains. Cap Negre, with its magnificent view is also only 10 minutes away from the house
