About Yvonne Lines


We are a couple in our 60's with two daughters and four grandchildren. Our villa is a family home as we like to provide everything that we would expect to have when we are away from home.

We really enjoy our holidays in this area of Spain mainly because of the beautiful white sandy beaches, the crystal blue sea and the beach bars! We like to travel to the surrounding villages, chill out in tapas bars and watch the world go by.

We take a pride in our villa and really want you to enjoy your stay in our lovely home from home.

Yvonne Lines purchased this villa in 2005

Why Yvonne Lines chose Orihuela Area

The villa is in a very quiet area, but just a few minutes drive to Villamartin Plaza and a short walk to other restaurants and shops.

The views from our roof terraces to the lakes are really lovely and we have the sun for the vast majority of the day.

Our area is very quiet, perfect for relaxing but within easy driving reach of beaches.

What makes this villa unique

We enjoy sitting by our plunge pool if we fancy a lazy day. The pool is perfect for small children and non swimmers. With three sunbathing areas to choose from its ideal for several families holidaying together.

We provide equipment for babies i.e. two travel cots, reclining buggy, sterilising units. There are numerous games, books and toys for children.

We also provide beach towels which we find an added bonus with travelling weight restrictions.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Information prior to arriving excellent.

Property is spotless and everything that should have been included was, and everything that should have worked did.

Close enough to amenities for food and drink, but far enough away to provide some peace and quiet, even though this is not the busiest time of the year.

Fantastic Villa a true home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

This will have been our second time here in the villa and each and every time we return home we are eager to book our next holiday here. We are a family of 2 adults and 2 young children this villa truly has everything you could possibly need and more which is a blessing when travelling with two small children. I don't need to worry about pushchairs toys highchairs cots etc. it has everything. Equally this villa would be just as suitable for a couple or a group as the villa is spacious and clean with 3 good sized bedrooms. the décor is clean and homely which is very nice as a lot of rentals out there are clearly setup with just business in mind and as such they tend to be very sterile and bare and everything the property is than equipped with tends to be done on the cheap. The owners Yvonne and John are lovely they are very helpful they take pride in what they do and offer and that is clearly reflected in the villa, they are very responsive and are happy to answer any questions you may have and will always do their utmost to ensure you have the best possible stay. The villa is equipped with a folder that is jam packed with all the local amenities attractions etc. so if you are not familiar with the area this is a great guide. Unless you plan on very much retreating just to the villa I would advise a hire car they can be rented for as cheaply as £10 a day having said that there is a local Aldi within walking distance and local transport is also available. I cannot recommend this place highly enough a true little gem that me and my family plan to return to time and time again. We have booked are 3rd time here as it very much ticks all the boxes and we fear we would be disappointed if we went anywhere else. So if you require somewhere that is clean spacious well equipped has a pool and plenty of outdoor space also than this is the place for you the best bit is the rates are very reasonable

Home from home

  • 5 of 5

What can I say apart from apart from it being a truly lovely villa. Couldn't fault it at all. Clean, tidy and spacious. My husband and I always use apartments when we go away, but after staying here for a week, it's changed us completely, so much so that we've booked to go back in September. Absolutely faultless.
