About Susan Alba
We live in Spain and own and manage Casita de Alba, Casa Almareka and Casa Susana. We do all our own maintenance and cleaning to ensure our villas are in perfect condition and spotlessly clean for our guests. I was a City Business woman until I found Casita de Alba in Jesus Pobre and from that day I knew I wanted to live there. I put my heart and soul into reforming the villa and made it into a luxurious, comfortable, welcoming home. We have had some wonderful times with many clients who come regularly over the years and who have enjoyed our properties.
Susan Alba purchased this Villa in 1987
Why Susan Alba chose Dénia
When I first saw Casa Almareka I knew I wanted to buy it 1 day, but the owners did not want to sell and I could not afford it so I said to the owner, please give me first refusal if you ever want to sell. From that moment I kept saving. 1 day I had a phone call from the owner saying they had to return to the UK and was I still interested.I jumped for joy and rushed to the bank to ask for a bridging loan (you could in those days!) All went well and in July 1987 the keys were in my hands. It was a wonderful feeling and I set about restoring, changing, updating and had the time of my life. My 1st clients loved there stay in Casa Almareka and I have continued to upgrade and modernise without changing the character of this truly charming villa. I also have Casita de Alba & both are great.
What makes this Villa unique
Whenever we get the chance we stay at Casa Almareka because by staying there we see what clients see. We can then adjust, decorate,install, remove anything & everything & do all we can to improve the villa each year. It is central to both Javea & Denia & also Alicante & Valencia and is situated in a lovely location that is peaceful & tranquil yet only minutes away from Golf, beaches, shops, restaurants, in fact everything you could wish for. Ideal for summer holidays with air conditioning & a glorious pool & warm & cosy for winter holidays with the log burner and central heating.

Our fifth stay in this lovely villa. It has a wonderful flood lit pool, lovely garden and amazing views. Well equipped and comfortable. Short walk to local village where you can enjoy the typical Spanish atmosphere and a visit to the Sunday market is a must. Only a short drive to Denia & Javea. The owners Susan & Nick are brilliant, so thoughtful of their guests needs and so very welcoming.
We had a wonderful 2 week stay , the villa is well equipped and has everything you need.The views are amazing and the area is so peaceful , the village is very near and has a few good restaurants, it's a 10 minute drive to javea with a good beach and plenty of restaurants .We spent a lot of time at the villa the pool is a great size and the garden is very nice several areas to dine outside especially the roof terrace.I would definitely return to this villa no hesitation, also Susan and Nick were very helpful and accommodating, the best villa I have ever stayed in.
Best Villa we have stayed in.
After almost 40 years of holidays in Spain in April/May 2018 we rented a villa from Susan in the Village of Jesus Pobre near Javea. In all those years we have never rented a villa that was so well furnished & comfortable!
From the first moment we had the feeling of coming into a lovely home.
The living room was very cosy and the bed- and sleepings rooms were fantastic.
The kitchen was very well equipped and was wonderful for us as we like to cook our own food.
The garden was a like paradise with a beautiful swimming pool.
The welcome when we arrived was very good and we discovered ,fruit, groceries, wine, butter bread etc.
Next year we will be returning to this fantastic villa and owners Susan & Nick !

What a wonderful review. We cannot thank you enough for your kind words. It is great to know that you enjoyed the villa and found it like a home for your holiday.
The garden is something we strive to make better each year and it is great to know our guests enjoy it as much as we do.
We love guests who return to the villa and we will not hesitate to make you welcome on your next visit.
Exceeded our Expectations (which were high)
My wife and myself had a fantastic 10 days at Casa Almareka! The write ups and photos of properties can be misleading but our expectations were exceeded at Casa Almareka. The gardens, the secluded pool setting were beautiful (we spent almost all are entire time on the patio and pool area). The roof top terrace offered great views of the Mountains and the valley. There's a new winery going in next store with scenic vineyards which we wished had been opened. Maybe next time. The villa itself is well appointed and had everything we needed. Sue and Nick were fantastic. Sad we live so far away. Wish we lived closer (10 hour flight from USA). Thanks for a great 10 days! Pat and Catherine St. Louis, Mo. USA
Thank you both so much for such a complimentary review. We try very hard to make sure the villa is as perfect as possible for our guests and get enormous pleasure when they enjoy the villa, its gardens and pool and the roof terrace. It is so rewarding to hear positive feedback so thank you and please do come and visit us again.
Great location well appointed
Delightful accommodation with efficient air conditioning and well appointed kitchen (large fridge freezer great for the essentials!) comfortable throughout. Lovely private gardens with superb, clean pool and novel roof top terrace to watch the stars at night and a view towards mount Montgo. Barbecue easy to use a good size also.
Great starting point for the intrepid walkers to take on Montgo from the back to front - well worth the effort should take around 4 hours.
Jesus Pobre market on Sundays well worth a visit, we dined at la Tasca (best to book) fantastic food and ambience.
Denis, guadalest, xabia, moriara, all well worth a visit. A day visit to Valencia is possible with an early start and well recommended.
Food in the area we found to be excellent and fresh - worth mentioning a recommendation of Susan's Restaurant Montgo.
All in all a wonderful holiday in a great location in a spacious and well appointed villa - many thanks Susan and Nick.
Thank you for the wonderful review regarding
Casa Almareka. It is so rewarding to know that our guests appreciate this lovely villa as much as we do.
We always try to make everything as special and comfortable as possible and it is so good to hear that our guests are happy and content.
Jesus Pobre village seems to be a favourite with many people who all share your views.
Thank you and come back again.
Our fourth stay at this beautiful Villa. Private and secluded with own pool and beautiful gardens. Villa equipped with everything you could possibly need and is clean and comfortable, a real home from home. Owners could not be more helpful and accommodating. Situated in small village with easy driving access to a number of beaches. Wonderful for a relaxing holiday.
Thank you for your great review. It was so rewarding that you love the villa so much you return regularly. It makes all our hard work so worthwhile when our guests return.
