General Area : Despite its name the Orihuela Costa is some distance from the city of Orihuela, in fact some 20 kilometres away. It comprises approximately 16 km of fine sandy beaches, rocky coves and clear sparkling waters stretching from Punta Prima (just south of Torrevieja) to Mil Palmeras.

It is now one of the most popular destinations in the region for a summer holiday, attracting visitors from all over Europe, the people of Spain themselves also love this part of the coast particularly those from the city of Murcia who flock to the Orihuela Costa in August. Holidaymakers are attracted by the wonderful, safe 'blue flag' beaches, the fine climate and the abundance of facilities and entertainment.

The Orihuela Costa boasts some well known and popular resorts including Cabo Roig, Playa Flamenca, La Zenia, Punta Prima and Campoamor. These resorts are all dotted along the N332 coastal road between Torrevieja and Pilar de la Horadada and are easily accessed from this road and from the AP-7 motorway.

Climate / Beaches / Travel: The Orihuela Costa enjoys a fantastic temperate climate and is renowned for being one of the healthiest places on earth to live, basking in over 300 days of sunshine every year and has an average temperature of around 20 degrees centigrade and very low rainfall. The hottest temperatures are during July and August when it can reach the high 30s degrees or more but sea breezes and elevation keep villa cool

There is a wide range of beaches on the Orihuela Costa . Punta Prima beach is a 10min walk away. La Zenia, Playa Flamenca, Cabo Roig and Playa Dehesa de Campoamor are only 5-10min drives.

Other very popular beaches within 45min drive include: Ãguilas, Mazarran, Cartagena, Calblanque, Mar Menor, La Manga, San Pedro del Pinatar.

Alicante and Murcia airports are located 45 and 30min away respectively. They are serviced by Ryanair, Easyjet, and other scheduled airlines. Car Hire would be recommended for exploring other beaches, golf courses etc.

Amenities: Punta Prima - A beautiful coastal resort located in the southern Costa Blanca district of Orihuela Costa, Punta Prima is within easy reach of several fantastic beaches all with blue flag status for cleanliness and safety. Punta Prima's own beach is renowned for its fine, white sand and is within walking distance of all the main amenities of the town.

The famous palm trees of Punta Prima are lined up behind the beach and can be easily seen from the main N332 coastal road between Punta Prima and Torrevieja.

There are some great facilities available both in and around Punta Prima and these include the Go-Kart track near to the famous water tower, golf (there are 3 courses nearby and others within a short drive), water sports, fishing, sailing and tenpin bowling in the nearby town of Torrevieja. Don't forget the Saturday market at Playa Flamenca or the huge Friday market in Torrevieja both super places to buy fresh, locally grown produce and other bargains.

About Edward

Private property owner : villa purchased as holiday home for extended family - children and grandchildren to gather each year. Renting on limited basis to cover pool and community maintenance charges. Not interested in groups that would not suit a quiet residential area. ( We prefer to manage property directly with guests to ensure their suitability and to avoid unnecessary surcharges)

Edward purchased this villa in 2009

Why Edward chose Torrevieja Area

Had often visited area staying in property owned by extended family member ( From 2000) : Despite initial reservations about heat in high summer, we found that elevated villa location on coast had benefits of continuous sunshine and cooling breezes. Fell in love with area and decided to plan for retirement and found magnificant property which ticks all the boxes for our family needs. Area has all the amenities one needs for a summer holiday .... sun and sand and plenty of great food in adjacent restaurants. Supermarket is close enough for my 12 year old to stroll up and get warm croissants for breakfast and hot chicken for lunch !. Quiet estate which wont suit the hen/stag party crowds (which we discourage) and a rep for the villa living nearby to assist guests with any needs

What makes this villa unique

The large pool is a great hit with all

Kids love access to water park and other entertainments in Torrevieja or the bigger theme parks about 80 mins away in Benidorm ( Aqualandia, Terre Mitica, etc).

Guestbook comments from the owner

15 Aug 2012 “Brilliant”

16 adults and children stayed at this very well appointed villa, it has the lot, pool tv wifi everything you need. Agent, is a lovely lady living opposite. Supermarket just up the road. . (5/5)

10 July 2012 “a fantastic villa with all the comforts of home ”

a fantastic villa with all the amenities of home making it a very easy holiday with 2 young children. We were a large group of 13, ages from 18mths to 71, so space and comfort were important to us, the villa provided this, with four shower rooms, and a large balcony enabling us to all eat together. The pool was excellent and kept the kids happy so helped make it a relaxing holiday. We are already planning a second visit. (5/5)

21May 2012 “Great villa kept in an impeccable condition.”

Fourteen of us, a mixture of adults and kids, stayed at the start of May - family holiday.

Great villa to stay in

  • 4 of 5

Lovely villa to stay in which was very spacious inside and out, the pool was a good size and kids had a great time going down the slide and playing with their toys in the pool .The bedrooms are spacious enough and the sitting room and veranda area quite big also, the kitchen is well stocked and equipped and their was also large BBQ and outdoor grill which is perfect if you are cooking for a group of people. Plenty of amenities nearby with a large supermarket beside the villa and a restaurant, bar and commercial center just 10 minutes walk away, the nearest resort and beach is approx 25 minutes walk from the villa. The owners are very accommodating and the man looking after the villa was very helpful, overall i would definitely stay here again and recommend the villa for a relaxing family holiday, as previously stated nearby residents do not take kindly to loud noise during siesta times and at night time so the villa is unsuitable for late night parties.

Owner's Response: Paul , Thank you very much for the very kind review. We are delighted that the villa and its facilities met your family's needs and that you had a nice break. As you indicated, and as stated in all booking information, the feedback from guests is that it is most suited for a quieter (often multi generational ) family vacation. We deliberately turn down adult only groups as they would not be appropriate for the residential location.

Perfect place for a family get-together

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful week's holiday in this lovely spacious villa. It is the perfect place for a family get-together. We were three generations: six seniors, seven 20/30-somethings, a 6-year-old, 2-year-old and a 3-month old baby. There was plenty of space for us all over the three floors, and the villa was provided with everything we needed. There was also so much room outdoors, on all three levels. All of us loved the private pool, especially the children, who had a great time on the slide and with the many pool toys they found in the garage. We didn't need to use the communal pool next door at all. We loved the shady gazebo close to the pool and the sheltered veranda on the main floor. The outdoor gas grill got a lot of use. There is an excellent supermarket just a few minutes walk away. We experienced an extreme heatwave for the first few days of our holiday at the beginning of August and unfortunately the 2-Euro coin-operated air-conditioning system wasn't great, and wasn't working at all on the top floor. Eamon the owner, who is extremely helpful, tried to get an engineer out to fix it, but because of the heatwave there was no-one available. The second half of our week was a much more comfortable temperature. We hadn't hired cars, we just wanted to spend a week together catching up with each other and enjoying the children. We highly recommend this lovely villa for families.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your kind response and we are delighted that you had a great holiday. It was unfortunate that the 'lucifer' heatwave impacted your first week and we hope that the air conditioning coin payment refund helped with some ice cream purchases for the children: we have since had the opportunity to have someone look at the 2nd floor system for us.

Perfect for families, large and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely long weekend in this spacious villa. The three levels are effectively three apartments sharing the well equipped kitchen on then ground floor, so perfect for an intergenerational family or couple of families with kids. The pool is clean and big enough to swim in, with the larger communal pool just next door. Walking distance to supermarket and local restaurants, and a short taxi drive to beaches, shopping centers and the old town of Torrevieja. Kitchen is well equipped and there is a barbecue too so easy to cook in and dine al fresco on the spacious balconies. I would highly recommend this villa for a family group who want to relax in the sun and enjoy the private pool. We also enjoyed la Zenis and Flamenco beaches just a short drive away. The owners of the villa couldn't be more helpful. It is their holiday home so there are extras like books and dvds, beach toys, and everything was clean and well prepared for our arrival. We will definitely be back.

Not good for big familys

  • 1 of 5

This house is not good for big group,it is prohibited to sit outside on the terrace after 23.00 pm.

We were 3 familys with 6 children and one evening we had a grill and we were talking and the lady in the next house complained, if she heard a laughter or a noise after 23.00 she complained and the owner told us to keep all talk and kids playing inside after that time.

Good for old people who whants to go to sleep at that time but not good for familys

Owner's Response: Thank you for your reply. Its unfortunate that this has not been the experience of other families (especially multigenerational ones) staying at the villa although we do stress to all guests that as it is a residential area and late night noise can be an issue. I agree that it is definitely not suitable for a large group of adults and we actually try to avoid accepting such bookings. I do appreciate that your made great efforts to keep any noise from the veranda to a minimum Thank You - I believe that one of our neighbours has been ill and that may have contributed to the unfortunate situation for which we can only apologise.
