About LYNN

Hi Folks Lynn and Bill here

We purchased our property in Gran Alacant ten years ago from new build. We paid a premium for our plot, south facing (sun all day) with uninterrupted views over mature gardens and a pine ravine.

The property was bought as a home in the sun, and it has been furnished to a very high standard (we actually self furnished from the UK, organising a container transit)

We are a family of 4, son at university and daughter studying A Levels. We have been blessed with fantastic family holidays in GA for many years now and getting best use of the great location as a weekend getaway, oh for low cost airlines.

Lynn is an Office Manager and book keeper so will be your contact, we have been taking care of clients for 6 years and having many returning year after year.

LYNN purchased this house in 2006

Why LYNN chose Santa Pola

Our home in GA is a lifetime investment, we plan to semi retire out here at some stage then hand it down the generations, in the meantime we fly out to Spain at every opportunity.

Location, location, location, 10 minutes from the airport, 3 minutes from the beach. A personal choice in respect of a hire car, everything you need for a chill out on your door step. Cuisine to suit every pallet and wallet a short walk from our home. Want to cook in? supermarket for your seafood, steaks and wines literally a 3 minute stroll through mature gardens.

The sporting type? mountain biking, hang gliding, windsurfing and simply beach running it's all happening.

Fancy a trip in land to a traditional Spanish village? You will need a hire car, but we can help you with the most cost effective options.

What makes this house unique

Location, location, location, simply second to non, and check out our client reviews, they consistently tell us that.

Our property's location to the communal pool is fantastic, a one minute stroll to the pool, whilst not too close to be disturbed during peak season.

Hard to believe but for those exiting the UK within less than 3 hours from leaving chilly UK, you could be sipping a rather well priced local Tinto on our front patio.

Hope to hear from you soon.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Fabulous time, house absolutely beautiful we were really really pleased. You have decorated it perfectly we didn't want to come home. Perfect plot not too close to the pool but just far enought away so as not to hear kids playing and shouting.

Sue and Paul Manchester. May 13



We had a super holiday in your fantastic house, beautiful beach and pool. We plan to return very soon and have recommended your house to our family and friends.

Jorgen and family, Denmark. June 13



Fantastic clean and well equiped house with sun trap garden, cant wait to return. Lots of restaurants within 5 minute walk.

One of the best beaches I have seen in Spain.

Great family home as described on the website, there has been a personal touch added to this holiday home complimented by Lynn's friendly and flexible help when booking. First time visiting this region - easy access from the airport, property very close to the beach, the pool is a stone throw and shops/restaurants within 5 minutes walking distance.

Terrific customer service from start to finish, Lynn was very attentive throughout the booking process. Proximity to the airport was excellent, a quick 10 minute car journey. The property is as described on the website, very well equipped, modern and well maintained. Super convenient to pubs, restaurants and supermarkets. A minute from the pool and a few minutes from the beach. Would highly recommend this property. Thank you Lynn for your flexibility and support - I hope to see you again!

Returning Holiday Maker - Great Property!

  • 5 of 5

Returning to Gran Alicant for year 3 - I have hired Lynn's property for the last 2 years, and I am planning to return again later in the year. The booking experience from start to finish was well managed, with lots of regular communication and assistance to any specific requirements. The house is very clean and well maintained. Well situated for bars and restaurants (La Palleta, Dream Corner & not forgetting the Argentina Steak House - all within 5 minute walk). Both pool and beach are terrifc. Overall holiday experience was excellent - cant wait to return. Thanks Lynn!

Terrific Holiday Home!

  • 5 of 5

Customer experience, holiday planning, help, support and overall preparation pre-travel was terrific. Lynn was very supportive and very flexible when helping me plan the holiday. Airport only 10 minutes away, picked up by Lynn's keyholder, the fabulous Phillis. Holiday home as described on the website - very modern, great location, well equipped and spotlessly clean. Bars, restaurants, shops and bus links into Alicante all within a few minutes walking distance. Beautiful beach 3 minutes by car, communal pool is very modern and is set in a beautifully landscaped garden. I would highly recommend this property and have already booked to return in the autumn!
