About Pam

My family and I enjoy traveling throughout Italy and Spain. Seafood paella and flamenco music are a must! We like to live like the locals and eat at their hot spots.

Pam purchased this bungalow in 2015

Why Pam chose Orihuela

This classic, Spanish, Lola-style bungalow is in an ideal Mediterranean location. There is a resort feel to the community, which immerses you in the beauty of nature, with its large green spaces, pools, and abundant plant and wildlife. The property, itself, also has many outdoor spaces with a front balcony, front and back terraces, a traditional Spanish veranda, and a solarium.

What makes this bungalow unique

We chose this property because of its character. You know you are in Spain when you look at it from the outside. Inside, from the original herringbone-patterned terracotta floor tiles to the textured pine doors and Spanish tile in the bathroom, it exudes the finer qualities of Spanish culture.

We enhanced it by adding local Spanish artwork and linens.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Very comfortable accommodations with a great location. Groceries, variety of good dining, and shopping in general, all within walking distance. The beaches, a very short drive, taxi or bus ride away, are wonderful and the Mediterranean Sea inviting. This villa is ideally located for day tripping to the beauty and vast history of coastal and southern Spain. We'll definitely return !!"

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review, Pauline. This property is, indeed, in an ideal location, near La Fuente and close to many other highly sought-after amenities. It is a classic Spanish property that has had recent updates, as the pictures will attest. Thank you for mentioning the issue with the cupboards; I will pass it on to my property manager, and remedy the situation immediately. I am glad you enjoyed your stay and you are most welcome to stay again. All the best, Pam.

vacances reposantes !!

  • 4 of 5

Un petit coin d’Espagne que je ne connaissais pas , très anglo- saxon ; car la langue la plus utilisée est l'anglais et il faut vraiment faire quelques kilomètres pour retrouver l’âme espagnole ,TORREVIEJA à 8 km ,ALICANTE et CARTHAGENA méritent vraiment le détour !

La location est très sympathique , assez bien située dans un cadre paradisiaque avec une piscine magnifique et un maitre nageur de 10 H à 22H ; idéal pour les enfants !

J'ai bien apprécié le calme qui est assez difficile de trouver en Espagne ,même si l'isolation est mince la discrétion du voisinage est appréciable , on se sent assez vite comme à la maison ,la literie est très bien pour la chambre parentale beaucoup moins pour la chambre des enfants .

Je n'ai pas mis 5 étoiles en appréciation ,car nous avons donné 50 euros pour le ménage (exigé dès notre arrivée ) et nous avons laissé la maison beaucoup plus propre qu'à notre arrivée ....

Owner's Response: Thank you, Laurence, for your review. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. It is a truly beautiful and relaxing spot for a family vacation. The cleaning fee that you paid also includes the property manager meeting and greeting you at the door, and a change of linens on the beds once you leave. The duvets for the children's beds are in their closet as they are generally too warm to use this time of year. Once again, I am glad you had a pleasant stay. You are more than welcome to stay again! For your convenience, here is Laurence's review translated into English by Google Translate: A small corner of Spain that I did not know very Anglo-Saxon; as the most used language is English and you really do find a few kilometers to the Spanish sou , TORREVIEJA 8 km, Alicante and Cartagena really worth a visit! The rental is very friendly, very well located in a tropical paradise with beautiful pool and a lifeguard 10 H to 22H; great for kids! I enjoyed the calm that is quite difficult to find in Spain, even if the insulation is thin the vicinity of discretion is substantial, it feels pretty quickly at home, bedding is fine for the master bedroom lot less for the children's room . I did not put 5 stars in appreciation, because we gave 50 euros for cleaning (required upon arrival) and we left the house much cleaner than when we arrived ....
