About The Owner

I live in England with my wife. We both work full time, but get out to Spain as often as time restraints allow us. Well who knows, if we win the lottery we'll be out there all the time. But at the moment work pays to get out there.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2003

Why The Owner chose Javea

We purchased the first apartment in the early 80's on the Costa Blanca as it's accessable by car as well as by plane. We have grown so fond of Javea, within the family we now have 3 apartments and 1 bungalow. All are rented out on a regular basis. Javea is just over an hour away from 2 airports, with daily flights from most UK airports. As it's a little further away from the airports it's a little more exclusive and only has 3 small hotels in the area. Javea has a really friendly feel and is very popular with Spanish holiday home owners. We have a website running with details of the 4 properties we let so if you would like further information please email or call and well give you the web address.

If /when we go to Javea again we would use this apartment again .....subject to availability

  • 4 of 5

The ground floor apartment was adequately furnished and being January we had to use the calor gas fire for heating and for hot water . The apartment is in an ideal area for cafes /bars and restaurants and access to the beautiful surrounding areas , and the sea is across the road .We were able to park our vehicle within the car park of this block of apartments which was a real bonus .

A shower where the hot water only works if you open the kitchen sink tap..... a balcony cluttered with stuff... an awful smell of mould everytime the wardrobes were open... a safe that was locked and couldn't be used.... even the spare blankets were curled into a ball and chucked in the wardrobe.... probably was too hard to fold them and make them presentable..... a carbon monoxide alarm that kept beeping for days due to low batteries......

No need to say that from the 100's of houses for rent in Javea... this is one I will not be renting again.

Owner's Response: Very sad that even though we have a 24 hour contact number back to us in the UK and a representative in the town the first we know about any issues with this rental is through a review. The hot water in the shower has not malfunctioned with previous renters or any since. The balcony 'stuff' consists of beach chairs and mats plus children's beach toys which are provided for the use of our guests. Here we also store the vacumn, ironing board, mop bucket and a fire for the winter months as they are out of the way and do not intrude on guests wardrobe space. The issues with the wardrobe, closed safe and replacement battery in the carbon monoxide alarm could have easily been rectified very quickly if we had been notified by our local representative. And the blankets are rolled up in the wardrobe rather than folded for ease of storage. All these issues could have been rectified very quickly had we/local representative been contacted.

No volvería

  • 1 of 5

Estuvimos cuatro noches y la valoración es negativa. Es cierto que el precio es muy asequible y no esperábamos gran cosa, pero hay unos mínimos y la estancia no fue en absoluto confortable.

- Lo mejor es la ubicación, que es excelente, al lado de los bares de salir y a dos pasos de la playa de rocas (y 5 minutos andando del arenal). Se puede aparcar sin problemas.

- Sin embargo, la casa estaba sucia (tazas y cubiertos sucios, instrumentos de cocina oxidados., pelusas debajo del sofá...) y hasta tuvimos que solicitar una fregona porque no había.

- Tuvimos cucarachas varias noches (debe ser algo normal porque había varios botes de Cucal en la cocina).

- No había agua caliente porque se invita a los inquilinos a ser quienes la recarguen en la gasolinera.

- Solo nos dieron un juego de llaves pese a ser 6 inquilinas y pese a haber solicitado a la responsable un juego más, por cuestión de logística.

- Las camas no son cómodas (terminamos por utilizar un colchón hinchable que traíamos).

EN RESUMEN, no lo recomiendo si lo que se quiere es gozar de unos días de descanso y cargar pilas.

Tres bien placé

  • 4 of 5

L'appartement est bien placé, tout est faisable a pied ce qui est très agréable

La cuisine est bien équipé. L'eau chaude peut être difficile à utiliser mais on trouve le truc après 1 ou 2 jours

Je recommande

Location très décevante .

  • 1 of 5

L appartement est froid et humide avec une odeur de moisi . Les premiers jours pas d'eau chaude pour la douche .Propreté limite j'ai refait la vaisselle .Pas 2 verres semblables , ni 2 couteaux identiques, les poêles sont très abimées .A la fin du séjour le chauffe eau nous a lâché .Bref une location que je ne recommande pas .Heureusement la personne qui nous a remis les clefs et dont nous avions les coordonnées en cas de souci est très gentille et a tout fait pour que tous nos soucis soient au maximum allégés et je lui en suis vraiment très reconnaissante .Merci Marie Carmen

Owner's Response: We are very sorry for your inconvenience. As you were aware the apartment above had a burst water pipe the day before your arrival which leaked into our apartment causing the damp smell. We offered to move you to a larger apartment (at no cost to you) and at first we were told by Mari you would move but then informed you had decided to stay in the apartment. The insurance company visited quickly but nothing could be done until the apartment dried out. There is an adequate amount of cutlery and crockery / glasses but breakages occur so matching sets are not always available. If this was a problem Mari Carmen would have dealt with this issue. We were informed by Mari that the water heater was not working correctly but told she was arranging an engineer to attend. We feel we addressed all the issues that were noted to us and I am sorry it wasn't to your satisfaction. Nous sommes désolés pour vos inconvénients. Comme vous le saviez, l'appartement au-dessus avait un tuyau d'eau burst la veille de votre arrivée qui a fui dans notre appartement causant l'odeur humide. Nous avons proposé de vous déplacer à un plus grand appartement (sans frais pour vous) et au début, on nous a dit Mari vous déménagement, mais alors vous aviez décidé de rester dans.La compagnie d'assurance a visité rapidement mais rien n'a pu être fait jusqu'à ce que l'appartement ait séché. Il ya une quantité suffisante de couverts et de vaisselle / verres, mais des ruptures se produisent afin jeux assortis ne sont pas toujours disponibles. Si c'était un problème, Mari Carmen aurait réglé cette question. Nous avons été informés par Mari que le chauffe-eau ne fonctionnait pas correctement mais a dit qu'elle organisait un ingénieur pour y assister. Nous estimons avoir abordé toutes les questions qui nous ont été signalées et je regrette que ce ne soit pas votre satisfaction.
