Detached Private Luxury Villa in peaceful location close to beach and amenities
About Maureen Bennett
Hi. My name is Maureen and I'm married to David, we have 2 grown up sons and a daughter, aged 16. I work part-time as a Doctor's Receptionist and David is a self-employed Plasterer with his own business. We also have a property Development company and so we love to escape to Spain for some sun and a bit of relaxation when we can. We like our comforts while on holiday and that is why our villa is maintained to a high standard with quality furniture and furnishings - it's our home from home. When we are not visiting our Spanish Villa we like to visit Florida and rent private villas using ownersdirect. I know what it's like, searching for the perfect villa and I do not mind at all if you phone me to ask questions about the villa or area.
Maureen Bennett purchased this Villa in 2004
Why Maureen Bennett chose San Fulgencio
We went on a property inspection trip in March 2003 with my parents and fell in love with La Marina. We bought our villa off plan, as did my parents and sold up in England and moved to Spain. We rented a property and watched our villa being built. Finally in December 2004 we moved in and it became our home with no expense spared on fittings and furniture. We love the area, it is very quiet with lovely views but we are within walking distance to shops and bars. We also fell in love with La Marina beach, it is only a few minutes drive away but it is beautiful. When we lived there we often went down to the beach in the evenings. Unfortunately we felt we had to move back to the UK in January 2006 for business and career prospects in the UK.
What makes this Villa unique
When we returned to England, we left everything in Spain and started again in England. We love our villa and the location so much that we did not want to sell it. We visit ourselves quite often and rent it out to help cover the cost of owning and running it. We decorate every year and are constantly renewing and refreshing things so that our villa never looks tired. We like to be comfortable ourselves when we holiday, I like to feel I am home from home, which I am here just with the added benefit of a private pool. Ours is not a basic holiday villa, it is our home which we are quite happy to share with you at the moment. We like our villa to stand out from the rest and this does reflect in the amount of bookings we get.
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
Excellent time staying at this Villa. It has everything for a family set up. We stayed with our 3 children who are 5, 3 and 22 months. They loved the pool and the play area, as well as the shaded outside part.
The outdoor bbq and eating area was a delight too and easy to use. It is a 15 minute walk from a large supermarket and a number of cafes/bars. Highly recommend it.
Many thanks for your kind review. So pleased you enjoyed your holiday and thankyou for choosing our villa for your stay. Maureen and Dave
Smashing villa - everything you need
For our summer holiday all we ever want is 2 weeks to chill out and enjoy a nice pool and good weather.
We have been to the area many times so we knew it was the right mix of shops and nearby beaches to suit us. However in the end we rarely left the villa! Definitely would be interested in booking again.
Quiet and Relaxing Holiday
This villa is ideal for a family holiday, its very clean and well maintained, it had everything that we needed in a villa. We especially liked the outside seating and kitchen area which we used most nights. We found it to be in a built up area but were surprised how quiet it was. There is a well stocked supermarket and mini market that sells absolutely everything, as well as a few places to eat all within a 15 - 20 minute walk away, however a car is highly recommended. The only downside to our stay was that the outside shower had a constant drip from the shower head that attracted wasps which became a bit annoying. Overall we had a very nice and relaxing holiday and would definitely considering returning at some point.
Great property, clean, updated and modern. Fantastic outdoor kitchen and pizza oven.
We had a lovely stay at Maureen’s house. It has been updated since we last came here which was great. Outdoor area is great including and bbq and pizza oven which we enjoyed using. Pool is a good size and well looked after. Sun beds are good quality and comfortable. Kitchen is well stocked with kettle, coffee machine, bowls, plates, glasses etc. Walking distance to restaurants. Short car trip to La Marina beach.
Thanks for a great trip, I’m sure we will return soon!
Absolutely amazing villa brilliant for children and has everything you need and more hopefully we will get booked back up again for next year
