About Liz Williams

Originally from Marple, Stockport, I now live in North Wales with my husband Paul. Both of us are Welsh speaking, but an eventual retirement project is to master Spanish once and for all!

Liz Williams purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Liz Williams chose Los Altos

After a spate of rather wet UK summers, we decided to find a bolt hole that provided more dependable sunshine and our apartment at La Cinuelica ticked the boxes. i.e. Plenty of flights from the UK, then easy access to the apartment from both Murcia and Alicante airports. Close enough for an easy walk or short drive to the beaches, restaurants and amenities of the area, but in a quiet area. Also somewhere that would be easy to maintain, so that we could spend our holidays on holiday, not doing DIY!

What makes this apartment unique

We were fortunate enough to find great key holders first time round! Zoe and Pete look after everything for us, and we know that our guests will be in safe hands with them.

Owner's Response: I'm so pleased to hear you had a wonderful holiday at our apartment Robert, and that you celebrated your anniversary in style. Here's wishing you both many more happy years together! The terrace in the evening is a great place for sitting out in the sunshine and enjoying a glass of something nice, isn't it? It's possible to do this for much of the year, because the area is fortunate enough to enjoy great weather. We have tried our best to equip the apartment out nicely, and our keyholders do an excellent job in keeping the place looking spic and span, and providing an excellent service.Glad you enjoyed the pool as well. Hopefully we'll see you again before too long! Best wishes, Liz

Owner's Response: Hello Claudia, I'm so pleased to hear you enjoyed your holiday at the apartment. Yes, La Cinuelica is a nice, clean, quiet neighbourhood, but the good thing is that a short walk away there are restaurants, supermarkets, bars etc, and the local beach at Punta Prima is also within walking distance. I look forward to welcoming you back to the apartment in the future Claudia. Best wishes, Liz

Fourth Visit!!!

  • 5 of 5

Yes - we've been back for a fourth time. We love this apartment and feels a bit like a home from home now!!! Took the TomTom this year and DIDN'T USE it - seem to know where everything is now and driving around like a local!

It's a superb spot - secure behind a gate from main road - but not far from it so you don't have to carry shopping far! Lovely bit of sun in the evening on the balcony.

Our son Freddie (6yrs) loves it here - and he goes to the pool every day - lovely for kids and has made friends there every visit.

We have done lots of things in the area (by car) previously but this year we just chilled out and did little, which is what all 3 of us needed this year. We did go to Aquapolis though, very enjoyable. Mostly spent days by pool, on beach (La Zenia mainly as that's a favourite) and reading on patio

Top tip - buy an underwater camera from the Chinese Markets (ony 6 euros) - they develop really nicely and are great in the pool

We've left one of those silver screen protectors there that keep the car cool if parked in the sunshine (they really do work)

The supermarket (Consum) just up the road is very reasonable - but we like a store about 5 minuntes drive in La Florida (Jumerca) - if you miss your Walker's Crisps etc etc

I could live here!!!!

Owner's Response: It was lovely to welcome you and your family back for another stay in our apartment at La Cinuelica Andy. I guess Freddie must be starting to think of the place as 'where we go on holiday' now! You're not the first guest to mention that in spite of there being so much to do in the area, there apartment itself is in a quiet area, which makes it an ideal place to chill out and relax with a good book and glass / bottle of wine. You'll just have to visit Cartegena next year instead ....... (good to see you've booked already!) Being within the gated inner circle does give a pleasant sense of security, which is so important when you've got little ones on holiday with you. But as you say, not so far that it makes carrying shopping and luggage a problem! Until next year then, Liz

Fantastic apartment in the Punta Prima area!

  • 5 of 5

On arrival to the apartment we were shown around by a lovely lady from Compass (the key holders) who gave us a tour and the keys to the apartment.

Throughout the booking stages, Liz (The owner) has been nothing but a delight to deal with, and myself and the other guests that stayed at the apartment are truly grateful! The listing of this apartment is spot on, and it is even better in person! The swimming pool is directly opposite the apartment, being shared by a small complex of apartments. The location is perfect for families or younger adults like myself, with supermarkets a short walk away, mcdonalds and a small strip of bars and restaurants. As well as this, it is really easy to get taxi's into busier surrounding areas, such as Cabo Roig, Playa Famenca, Torrevieja and La Mata.

I 100% recommend this apartment, that has everything you need to be comfortable and more, with an added bonus of Air con and Wifi!

My friends and I will definitely consider staying again if we were to return to this area in the future.

Many thanks again Liz!

Owner's Response: Pleased to hear that the apartment ticked all the boxes for you! WiFi for a small charge is new in the apartment this year, and it has been a hit with other guests as well. I'd be delighted to have you back to stay again in the future, should you be holidaying in the area again. Don't forget that it also makes a great out-of-season destination for a last minute short break as well! Best wishes, Liz

Owner's Response: Glad to hear that our apartment was the ideal place for a short break. The area has so much more to offer than a 'height of summer' annual holiday, and the warm sunny climate and convenient location makes our apartment an ideal base for quick breaks outside of the main season. Thank you for your comments about the apartment's cleanliness - I've passed these onto my key holders who really try hard to make sure that the place is spick and span for guests.

Third Visit !!! Wonderful...

  • 5 of 5

This is actually our THIRD time in this same apartment - it is so convenient placed near the gate to the (quiet) road so hire car is close - (for carrying shopping, beach equipment etc) - there is a locked gate to the complex and a gate to the apartment front garden (good for toddlers) - we have booked again for next year and it now feels like a little home from home!!!

Each time we have been we have found somewhere new - have discovered at least two more nature parks close by - haven't been to Alicante town or Cartegena, or Tabarca Island by boat yet (next year), which just goes to show how much there is to do if you have a car and like exploring.

I would recommend doing homework on the locality - especially in the mountains and searching for interesting and lovely off the beaten track villages.

Our favourite beach is La Zenia (superb for toddlers) - 5 minutes by car -(bit rough for snorkelling - Punta Prima headland is amazing for that) a number of other nearby beaches are also different and worth exploring.

Our 5 year old boy met many new friends in the complex pool this year - he learned to jump in from the side at the deep end!!!

We took some DVDs but didn't even switch the TV on to be honest - too busy!

There is a nice Consum supermarket up the road (1 minute drive up the hill) but if you like a local supermarket (with a real butcher) ask someone for directions to JUmerca at La Florida (2 or 3 minute drive) - "Emerald Isle" was a fun evening with terrible Karaoke which was very funny and entertaining - and there are things for the kids to do there in the evening too.

Head down to Punta Prima but bear right by the Burger King and you will come across a street of "British" corner shop type places if you really crave a packet of Quavers or need a Mars Bar :)

This year we discovered La Casa La Pedrera (20 minute drive away in the mountains near a lake) - have reviewed this in TriAdvisor (one or two negative reviews on there but we had a great time along with most reviewers)...

http://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Attraction_Review-g3604892-d4026566-Reviews-Casa_La_Pedrera-Orihuela_Alicante_Province_Valencian_Country.html

Can't wait to go back next year - apartment is perfect for us (a couple with a toddler of 5 years)

Great for relaxing on the front patio - quiet - you won't want to leave!

We found Jet2 best for flights for the past 3 visits - but shop around for car hire (you will definately need one)

Owner's Response: Sounds as though you've had yet another fantastic holiday Andy! Yes, there's so much to do and see in the area apart from the traditional 'Costa Sea, Sun and Sand' which of course are superb in the area. Authentic Spain is never far away, and I'm sure you'll love Alicante and Cartegena (amazing amphitheatre and castle) on your next trip. Glad you enjoyed the apartment as well. It is the little things like being inside the gated community, easy access to the swimming pool along with a comfortable apartment quality furnishings that make all the difference between having a good holiday and a brilliant holiday. Drinks on the patio, watching the sun go down, with whacked, happy child sleeping soundly is a good feeling! Delighted that I'm going to be welcoming you and your lovely family back next summer Andy. Don't forget that the area has so much to offer outside the summer season as well - ever thought of a spring or autumn break? Best wishes, Liz
