Villa in Los Rotes Denia, Costa Blanca North, Spain - 5 Mins Walk to the Sea, 15 Mins Walk to Supermarket, 25 minutes into Town
About ellie doherty
This villa is contemporary light and airy - when the house remodelled we concentrated on making it light and airy - we had upstairs as the living space open plan with kitchen - dining and lounge area - plus two bedrooms both with en-suite downstairs is a further two bedrooms plus bathroom and our own bedroom which we keep locked and are not for use - large entrance hall and utility - I am a safety fanatic so we had safety gates made for children's safety on the inside stairs and also the outside stairway too - electric gate for security and safety for children - pavements aren't great for first few minutes walk until you join the main promenade walkway which is easy walking access into town and the port passing by the marina
ellie doherty purchased this Villa in 2006
Why ellie doherty chose Dénia
Being involved in travel I enjoyed traveling to many places - I never thought of buying a holiday home until I visited Denia and I immediately fell in love with the area and the Spanish traditions still continuing in this cosmopolitan historic town and resort - I have now retrired and have decided to let the property for a short period -as this is predominently our holiday home and we want to keep up the high quality and standard of the interior and pool area and enjoy when possible our lovely home the beautiful surrounding beaches and appreciate the beauty mount mongo and the nature reserve that our home sits along side
What makes this Villa unique
The property is in the upmarket area of Los Rotes which has great views of Mount Mongo - we are on the edge of Mongo National Park and therefore have great views of Mount Mongo and miles of National Park on the doorstep - the villa sits side of mountain road Denia to Javea and a 15min walk to the sea - and beach - the property is private - but it is not remote - convenient for the local bus stop which is two minutes walk away and this service runs about every half hour into town - marina and to the supermarket behind Port Denia Hotel which sells fresh bread and pastries daily which are delicious mmmm...but if you dont fancy the 25minute walk we have the local bus - some say Best tapas in Denia restaurant on our doorstep next door but two eat in-take out-We are not remote people we do enjoy privacy but the thought of us being stuck out in the sticks needing to drive every where was not for us - we love it and guests who have stayed have gone home with great reviews and memorable holiday times - many have returned for second and third time

A great Villa!
A lovely well equipped villa in an equally lovely part of Spain. All the family loved every minute of the time spent their.
Hi David thank you for your review - We're delighted you enjoyed the villa and surrounding areas we hope we can welcome you back to villa Ghekko Los Rotes Denia in the future - Ellie
Lovely stay, home from home
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this villa, felt at home from the moment we got there. The villa was clean, very well equipped, the beds very comfortable and the showers brilliant - we couldn't have wished for any better! Lots and lots of choice of seating outside - on the balcony, by the pool and all round the house to chase the sun if that's what you want. The living/kitchen area is lovely, was just right for 5 adults but I think it would be a bit crowded if you had more in your party. The beach with a couple of restaurants is a 10 minute stroll away and the main town of Denia (lovely little town) is about 30 minutes walk down to the beach and along the promenade. Great communication with Ellie, the owner, all very easy to arrange and deal with.
I Thank you for your kind review - guests who enjoy the villa space and Denia are very welcome anytime
Excellent property....pictures don't do it justice
Fantastic property, close to excellent tapas bars...can walk or get bus to denia. Excellent communication from Ellie throughout our booking and stay. We would highly recommend this property so much so we have booked for next year.
Home from home
Villa had every thing you would need for a relaxing holiday, there was every home comfort you would expect in you own home. The pool was clean and well maintained, the hole family loved it, there was even some pool toys for the kids to play with. The beach was at the end of the road and the town centre had more restaurants to beat the band.
Ellie thank you for sharing you holiday home with us, it was a holiday we wont forget and hope to be back next year.
Iggy and family.
We had a wonderful stay in this beautiful luxury villa. We didn't realise the beach was so near (8 minute walk) and this was a wonderful surprise. Although it was peak season the beach had plenty of space and was not at all crowded. The town and marina were a 20 -30 minute walk away and we enjoyed lots of the nice restaurants on offer. Our son loved snorkelling in the warm shallow sea and the fair was a big hit as well. Many thanks to Sasha and Ellie for being so helpful.
Hi Andy and family it is always a pleasure to welcome lovely guests at the villa - it's important to be honest with all your descriptions .. and offer our guests assistance 24/7 if necessary for peace of mind and enjoyment and always a friendly helpful welcome ..
Beautiful villa in excellent location
We have recently returned from a superb stay at Ellie’s beautiful villa.
Casa Gekko is situated in Las Rotas, conveniently located close to the beach, Marina and town. Along the way there are bars, restaurants and a supermarket, so nothing is far away.
The villa itself is set in a large, well-maintained garden with pool, BBQ and lots of seating (shady and sunny). Inside is large and airy and the way that Ellie has furnished it makes it feel homely, not just a holiday let. The bedrooms are spacious with plenty of storage and hanging space, pretty and comfortable bedding and air conditioning. There is a lovely terrace upstairs, perfect for evening drinks.
Ellie has thought of everything, from SKY television, games and WIFI, down to beach equipment and shopping bags!
We would not hesitate in recommending Casa Gekko, although of course we would prefer to keep it a secret as we don’t want everyone to know about it! Ellie was prompt to respond to any queries and straight forward. We hope very much to return again!
Thank you for your kind comments - family holiday times should be stress free enjoyable and memorable and if we deliver that we're happy too ....

The air in Denia has been voted the cleanest and most healthy climate ideal to help breathing difficulties and chest complaints due to the mountains sea and pine trees and this contributes to the great climate in Denia
