About P.Hobbs

Paul & Glenda welcome you to stay at our 'Place in the Sun'.

We have owned the property from new in 2002 and have come here for our holidays several times a year since with our family, and more recently on our own.

The close proximity to the airport means your holiday is not delayed by lengthy journey times or costly transfers.

We totally chill within hours of arrival as you feel home from home comfort with all facilities both in the house and in the locality with the superb beach within walking distance and local bars ,eating places also just minutes away.

P.Hobbs purchased this apartment in 2002

Why P.Hobbs chose Baix Vinalopo

After many holidays to various destinations we decided to buy somewhere that was close to the airport (maximum 30 mins drive). Accessible by road or Air and close to the coast and decent beaches. Great weather. We found all of this in Gran Alicant which has grown over the last ten years into a great holiday destination if you want to avoid the masses and just want to 'Chillax' in a home from home environment.

What makes this apartment unique

Just home comforts and great weather!

Lovely sandy beaches within walking distance.

Local support from neighbours, keyholder and ourselves by email,land line if required (all contact numbers in info folder).

Guestbook comments from the owner

First of all let me thank you for allowing us to stay in your place. It was excellent, above and beyond what we expected. We've stayed in Spain on and off for the past 20 years and have stayed in many apartments and villas and yours was, without any shadow of doubt, the cleanest we've ever stayed in.We loved it.

The location was great too. We did the beach everyday and found we could walk it in ten minutes or so and absolutely loved it. Fantastic beach and I would imagine really safe for kids.

The selection of restaurants just a few minutes walk was also a huge surprise,all good.

Dave, and his pick up great and we would recommend.

This holiday is the first that we've done that we both said we could have done a few more days, so relaxed had we become and so into a routine had we slipped into.

So, thanks again Paul, rest assured if we return to Spain we will book with you again. Loved the place and the resort.

We had an excellent family holiday, wonderful solarium views and very well located. The house was extremely clean and the facilities were excellent. The house is well located for restaurants and beach. Would recommend for a family holiday or a holiday for a couple. Paul the owner was excellent to deal with and assisted in making the holiday a pleasant one. Will certainly consider returning in the near future. Thank you for a lovely holiday Paul.

Great Relaxing Holiday

  • 5 of 5

The property was perfect for us in everyway, in an excellent location and as per some previous comments, spotlessly clean. The views from the roof solarium were also eye catching.

The local bars, cafes and restaurants (only a few minutes walk) were also very good with plenty of choice, special mention to O'Duills Irish Bar that serves really good food as well as drink!

The beach was superb and well worth spending sometime there.

We had a few short trips out to Santa Pola and Arenales? and enjoyed both, its a strange but nice feeling when you sense that you appear to be in a very small minority of being non-Spanish in those places!

We'd certainly like to come back and book with you again sometime in the not too distant future and wouldn't hesitate to recommend your property to friends and family.

Thanks again Paul for your excellent communications and help.
