A unique setting allows for peace and quiet with no road between you and the sea.
It is a 20 minute tram ride from the historical city of Alicante and your tram stop of 'Salesians' is five minutes walk through the park.
El Campello has a marina and fresh fish market. (See my hospitality page)
Cabo Mar has been a second home to my family since 2000, for young, teenager and old alike. So now we would like you to share in our beach home holiday destination.
Cabo Mar is a white stone fronted low rise, securely gated , urbanization bordering the shoreline. Our front-line apartment is situated on the corner of the building with the mouth of the Rio Seco next to the apartments which allows for unspoiled views of the Costa Blanca seascape and La Muntanya d'Alacant (The Alicante Mountains). It has excellent private amenities with large lagoon shaped swimming pool incorporating an infant pool with all summer long lifeguard protection. There is an infant play area inside the complex and a small park on the sea front. There is a multi surface tennis court which can also be used for playing basket ball and five a side football. A sauna, gym and Social Club with toilet facilities and showers are situated near the pool.
There is a rocky beach with the clear crystal waters of the Mediterranean simply a step away from the apartment which is perfect for an early morning swim. There are also the immaculately clean sandy beaches of San Juan and El Campello five minutes walk away. Walk out of the gates of the urbanisation and the 5km long Playa Mucha Vista in San Juan, voted in the top ten beaches of Spain with golden sand, is in one direction, and the sandy beach of El Campello is in the other and both are accessible on foot. Take a swim, play ball, build a sand castle, take a picnic or simply soak up the sun on these soft sandy beaches. Surfing and other water sports are available from the beach in San Juan.
There is a full time caretaker/concierge and all shared areas are cleaned daily. The pathways in the complex are lined with beautifully cared for bougainvillea, Angels Trumpet, palm trees and various cacti plants which creates colour, shade and interest. Garden benches are also dotted around if you just want to sit and rest or be near your children playing.
There is a lifeguard on patrol at the pool side during the summer months at set times. Here also are palm trees to create shaded areas.
All areas within the complex are wheelchair accessible with ramps to the poolside and to the apartment block.
There is a dedicated private underground car parking space for one car (Space 117) with an electronically activated garage door and there are lifts up to the urbanization directly from the garage.
The apartment is also served by a lift to the fourth floor. There is no road between the front of the apartment and the sea.

A rear protected balcony houses the laundry which also contains beach chairs, beach towels, parasol, tennis rackets etc. There is also a view of the pool and La Muntanya d'Alacant from this balcony.
Again from the hallway a doorway opens into a short corridor that leads to the bedrooms. Here fresh linen and towels are at hand.The master bedroom is en suite. There is a further double bedroom and another bedroom with bunk beds. Built in wardrobes accessible in two bedrooms.The high ceilings, shuttered windows and overhead fans add to the welcome coolness on a summers day.
The two bathrooms are tiled floor to ceiling with shower/bath, bidet, sink and toilet. Take a shower looking out at the Mediterranean!
The third exit from the main hallway leads to the living/dining area.

El Campello has a mild and sunny micro climate and in summer the heat is generally bearable with a gentle sea breeze.

Hello and a big welcome to anyone browsing my Homeaway details for 2018, The apartment is racing ahead wuth bookings and thank you for choosing Cabo Mar. I am English with an Irish husband and have lived outside of England for the last 28years. We have three grown up children who were raised in Belgium and that is where we are staying for the time being. I grew up in Darlington, Co. Durham England, and firstly studied Nursing in Freeman Hospital before leaving to live in Belgium. I worked in The Republic of Ireland for the last ten years and sorely miss my friends and colleagues there. I have a great appreciation of language learning and language barriers having lived in a predominantly francophone area of Belgium. I embrace different cultures even the little things like Spanish bed time which is after 2am or siesta at 3pm. I enjoy reading English literature (some french), finding ingredients in local markets to cook for my family, walking on a clear day, music and dance of all genres.
Owner purchased this Apartment in 1999
Why Owner chose El Campello
We used to drive down to Alicante from Belgium, just as soon as school finished we loaded up the car and off we went. Three months of holiday in the safety of Cabo Mar and with all the outdoor facilities for young children. My then retired parents spent low summers or late summers strolling on the esplanadas of Alicante and El Campello sipping local wine and taking a dip in the Med. Then my children became teenagers and wanted to do water sports, skateboarding, in line skating, horse riding and of course tasted the night life too. My husband and I with my youngest brother and his wife would create special days out on the beach with gazebo, cards, suncream and paella for lunch. Extreme beaching was my brother's favorite when he would escape to the sea for a swim 'sans enfants'! Summer fiestas are spectacular and to watch the fireworks from the comfort of our own balcony made it all the more pleasurable. We had off season trips for shopping in Alicante with shoes a plenty and attractive little bars for cafe con leche. El Campello is a family resort for all ages and I would like you now to enjoy some of this summer sun that I have had the privilege to do.
What makes this Apartment unique
We fell for this spot when the apartments were under construction and I was able to stand on the balcony in its unfinished state and imagine myself sitting gazing out to sea or watching the stars at night or the sunrise/sunset and most spectacularly a summer electric storm out at sea. Try it for yourselves.

Perfect Holiday, Perfect Accommodation, Perfect Location
We had a perfect holiday in Cabo Mar El Campello. This apartment is located in a perfect location between two beautiful beaches. There is also a beautiful private pool situated within this gated complex. If you are travelling with kids, this property probably ticks all the boxes. If there is one thing that would give this apartment a 10 out of 10, it would be the addition of air conditioning. However saying that, with the windows / doors open, there was a good breeze passing through the apartment and therefore it was not much of an issue.
Both the owner and the local property manager where so nice to work with. Certainly went out of their way to ensure that our stay was perfect. Thank you Meg and Phil.
Thank you John for your thoughtful review. We are looking into installing air conditioning before next peak season. However I am glad you had a pleasant air flow through the apartment which, as I know, is welcome in peak season. Come again soon.
Very clean with good facilities, lovely view. Needs mirrors in the bedrooms and fan for small room. Great location, perfect pool and helpful, friendly managers.
Thank you for your thoughtful review and I am delighted you enjoyed your stay in Cabo Mar. I will certainly take action on your comments. The apartment has three large mirrors one in each bathroom and one in the entrance hall but I can easily install extra mirrors. I will get a new fan for the third bedroom.
Cabo Mar felt like home
We felt very welcome. A nice appartement, decorated with care. Sunny balconny were we had our breakfast allmost every morning enjoying the view. Loved it!
Home from home is exactly what I want to provide to my clients and thank you for summing this up so well.
Something for all
Have visited this apartment many times over recent years, with various family members from 15 years old to 80! Everyone had an outstanding visit as the accommodation, location, weather and accessibility from the airport is second to none. You could spend 14 days on the balcony just watching the world go by!
I think anyone who chooses to stay here will appreciate 'The Balcony 'and the views that you so kindly described. It is a place for all the family and thank you for your review.
My experience of Campello was incredible and it's all thanks to this wonderful home from home. So many memories, friends and happy times were made here. Perfect for any type of holiday wether it be with children or without. It is the most comfortable holiday home where you can simply watch the sea and indulge in the Spanish lifestyle. I hope whoever may stay here feels the sense of calm and beauty that so many already have.
P.s defiantly get a chicken from Los Hermanos you will not be disappointed
Thank you for such a lovely description of El Campello and our apartment
Lovely frontline apartment with stunning sea view
We first stayed in this lovely apartment some fourteen years ago. When we were in a position to buy are own holiday home we had no hesitation in choosing Campello, which is a really lovely resort, not over developed and much favoured as a holiday destination by the Spanish themselves. The apartment is well equipped and is maintained to a high standard. Phil and Falconery, the apartment managers, are very helpful and live close by. They were able to collect us from the airport and take us straight to the apartment and as we had arrived for our last stay on a holiday they had even bought in some essential groceries to tie us over the holiday weekend. There are plenty of good restaurants and bars in Campello. And for the younger holiday maker there is a vibrant club scene in Alicante. We highly recommend the apartment and El Campello for a great holiday, both in winter and summer.
There is a wind surfing club in El Campello and the surfers come to our stretch of beach when the water is right and it is soothing to watch or even more fun to join them. The clear waters in front of Cabo Mar with the rocky beach make for peaceful snorkeling and an early morning swim with the shawls of tiny fish. Very quiet part of the water front. El Campello is a ten minute walk to ATM, Medical Centres, shopping, bars and cafes. The Esplanada starts at the Rio Seco and continues all along the seafront to the Marina.
