Great value for money

  • 4 of 5

This is the second time we have stayed at this property so we knew what to expect. I was a bit concerned reading more recent reviews but there were no real surprises. The house does not have air conditioning but this is made clear in the specifications. It means that the nights can be hot and uncomfortable but in Spain in July/August this is to be expected. Since our last stay, the owner had replaced the lounge ceiling fan and provided a second free standing fan. Both of these help. The house is in a good state of repair and was well equipped for the 3 of us.

You definitely need a car although there is a great local bar about a 2 minute walk away.

We enjoyed out stay and the owner is always really helpful.

definitely needs airconditioning and you definitely need to hire acar

  • 3 of 5

We were told you don't need airconditioning because the villa is up in the hills.we stayed here in June and you definitely need a/c we where far to hot despite having 2 fans&the doors&windows open so god help the people staying in july and august.You defo need a car as it's a good 40 mins walk from anywhere . there's a small complex with shops&pharmacy at the end of the road that have been due too open 'next week' for the last 2 years the locals told us so you can't rely on them for food/drink.you definitely need ear plugs as the dogs opposite≠xt door bark at the slightest noise or people walking past through out the night. Between being too hot &being woken up by the dogs we didnt get much sleep.the villa is in need of the bathroom regrouting &ashower screen putting up as I personally find a shower curtain unhygienic . The beds aren't the most comfortable &would benefit from mattress protectors. The villa would benefit from an in depth clean (In the draws&the bottom of the wardrobe was too dusty to put stuff in so I had to clean them out 1st).The pool is good&we had it most of the time to ourselves although the key we were given didn't work so we had to walk the long way round to the other gate.

Owner's Response: We have addressed all of these issues with our local agents. Our latest guests state that they thoroughly enjoyed their holiday, had no problems at all and wish to return next year! We always advise guests in advance that a car is required, and can provide airport transfers and local car hire for our guests, with a car delivered directly to the villa. We have successfully let for a number of years without air conditioning and have fans throughout the house. The pool key works and is the correct pool key as verified by our previous and subsequent guests. Local shopping facilities are improving although the main shops are still located in Alfaz del Pi and La Nucia, both a short drive away.

Lovely property in a good location

  • 4 of 5

This property is ideal if you want to explore the northern Costa Blance.

The house itself is well equipped and was really clean. The washing machine means that you can pack light and there was enough space for us to move abound without tripping over each other.

You share the use of the pool but during our stay we only shared it a handful of times. We were usually on our own there.

The location is really great. About 90 seconds away there is a lovely Spanish bar which overlooks a children's playground....perfect for enjoying an evening drink whilst our daughter played with the local children. There is also an outdoor exercise area and a new supermarket about to open. However, because the house is around the corner the will be no noise impact.

We hired a car, which I would say is a must, and the house owner, Steve, was able to put us in touch with a local hire car firm that offered very reasonable rates.

From here, you can easily drive to Altea, Calpe, Benidorm, Guadelest and many other places, so it is perfect base to explore from.

The owner was really helpful as were his agents who picked us up and returned us to Alicante airport.

We really enjoyed our stay here and would definitely recommend it to families and couples.

Little Gem of a Place

  • 5 of 5

we have just returned after spending near 3 weeks here, it is equipped for 6 people. It was clean and well maintained. It had everything we needed including brand new iron and ironing board. There is a table and 4 chairs for use on the outside patio, great for cool evenings. There are loungers and parasol on the sun roof terrace, which has amazing views.

The pool just at the back is fantastic we had sole use of it for the majority of the time with only the odd resident using for a swim at tea time. The children loved it they were able to play all day until late evening on their inflatables.

Across the road there is a lovely Spanish owned bar, open from early morning until the last people leave at night.

They do food which was delicious, we tried every Tapas dish and still cannot decide on what one was best.

There are games and things for children including a pool table and in the grounds a park with swings and climbing frames that kept the children entertained.

Just 5 minutes walk away is another bar English owned (Pauls) which is another great little place for a stroll and a drink.

Both bars sell fresh bread/baguettes everyday and Paul sells home made cakes (delicious).

You do not need a car to stay at this place unless you have mobility restrictions as there is a bus stop which is a 20 minute walk to get to.

We used Taxis to and from Benidorm which cost 15 Euro each way and the same cost to Altea but everywhere else La Nucia/Polop/Alfaz Del Pi all from 5 to 8 Euro each way.

All in all this is a little Gem of a place I would recommend to anybody with or without children.

Very quiet relaxing place and the locals are very very friendly.

Einfaches aber sehr schönes Ferienhaus in ruhiger Lage

  • 4 of 5

Das Haus liegt in einer ruhigen Siedlung nur wenige km entfernt vom nächsten Strand. Der schöne Gemeinschaftspool ist nur ca. 50 m entfernt und war auch in der Hauptferienzeit (Anfang Juli) nur wenig besucht.

Das Haus ist einfach aber komplett eingerichtet, lediglich das(in Spanien oft übliche) schmale Doppelbett (1,40 m) bereitete kleine Probleme. Die Ausstattung war umfangreich, in der Küche fanden sich neben Herd mit Backofen und Waschmaschine auch Wasserkocher, Mikrowelle und Kaffeemaschine. In allen Räumen angebrachte Ventilatoren sorgten für gute Belüftung gerade in der heißen Jahreszeit.

Positiv aufgefallen ist der PKW Stellplatz auf dem Grundstück sowie Gitter an den Fenstern und Fliegennetze an den Türen, die eine gute Durchlüftung bei An- und Abwesenheit erlaubten. Einziger Negativpunkt war der fehlende Sonnenschutz im Vorgarten und auf der Dachterrasse.

Polop de la Marina, the charming hillside town of one hundred fountains, sits in the north east of the province of Alicante in the central part of the Costa Blanca region, just twelve minutes from the magnificent beaches of Benidorm and Albir. The ancient seaside town of Altea with its charming streets and restaurants is within a few kilometres, and the nearby Paramount theme parks of Terra Mitica and Terra Natura are great for kids, as well as the water parks of Aqualandia and Mundomar. A further attraction is Guardelest, an ancient Moorish fortress set on top of dramatic mountain peaks, one of the most visited tourist destinations in Spain
