Beautiful Luxurious Villa, superb south facing private gardens with own Pool

Bedrooms 3
Space 2,475 sq. ft.
Property type villa
Minimum Stay 7 - 14 nights


About the property

3 Bedrooms (two king double & one twin), 3 Bathrooms (2 en-suite). Sleeps 6.

Although this beautiful, luxuriously furnished villa was only built in 2004 it has recently been extensively refurbished and extended with two of the bedrooms increased in size, a dressing room provided for the master bedroom suite and all three bathrooms renovated with large walk in showers. The kitchen was completely refitted in 2017.

The villa has the advantage of being recently built but in a mature, established and exclusive location, Cap-de-La-Nao, a local beauty spot. Set in a 3rd of an acre, with a high degree of privacy it has air conditioning, wi-fi, a private pool, south facing 200sqm pool terrace, beautiful upper level panoramic lounge, BBQ, 2 levels of sun terrace with sea views, ample garden furniture, 6 sun beds with cushions, washer/dryer, dishwasher, cable wide screen TV with over 30 english channel including Sky Sports, DVD player etc.

Casa Isabella is less than 300m from the cliff edge with its breathtaking sea views and in a quiet area of Javea dominated by Cap-de-la-Nao lighthouse. Although a peaceful area restaurants and tennis courts are a short walk with many more local facilities just a short drive. A number of Javea's famous miradors (viewing points) are within easy walking distance of the villa.

Javea's charms include its historic old town, marina and the Arenal beach. There are many golf courses such as the 27-hole La Sella. Even though the villa is in a sought after up-market area, attractions for young children such as the Terra Mitca Theme and Water Parks at Benidorm are within a 40 minute drive

Location, location, location...: Javea has so much going for it; although it is cosmopolitan it is still Spanish without a high rise package tour hotel in sight. There are a number of distinct part of Javea; the old town, the marina area, Arenal beach and Cap de la Nao. There are a number of beaches and coves and 'miradors' or viewing points with spectacular views across the Costa Blanca. A number of these are within walking distance of the villa.

Cap de la Nao, at the southern tip of Javea is a local beauty spot with its light house, nature reserve and cliffs. It is a very green and sought after area with few opportunities to build a new property to the standards one expects these days. This is a large one third of an acre plot which is both private and peaceful. It is south facing with extensive terraces with the sun from dawn to dusk and a beautiful upper panoramic sun lounge in case it turns cooler or for out of season use. In this part of Spain it is reported that there are around 320 days of sun throughout the year. Around 300 yards from the villa are spectacular cliff top views with two excellent cliff top restaurants. There are also tennis courts within walking distance; a mini mart and bakery and other shops and facilities can be found at the entrance to Balcon al Mar.

Quality, quality, quality...: Probably, like us, you have rented property in the past and been disappointed with the quality and with furniture you would not have in your own home.

We have paid careful attention to all aspects of our villa. All of the furniture is new including the leather suites in the downstairs and the upper panoramic lounge and the elegantly interior designed soft furnishing, custom made for each room. All the beds are excellent quality with a king size bed in the master bedroom and blue bedroom. The overall feel is of a modern light and airy luxury holiday home but it has been furnished and equipped as if it was our main residence.

The private plot has been carefully and professionally landscaped by one of Javea's best garden designers with tiered terraces, substantial planting and a large lawn area. The plot has been planted all the way round with a range of colourful Mediterranean flowering shrubs as well as a number of individual specimen plants and trees to ensure privacy.

Detail, detail, detail...: We built this villa to our own detailed specification based on our experiences of renting accommodation which was often not to the standard we would have liked.

We specified a large en suite shower room for the master bedroom, a good sized en suite bathroom for the second bedroom and the third bedroom has an ample shower room adjacent to the bedroom. All bedrooms have built in wardrobes and the master bedroom has a TV. We have also provided cable TV with around 30 English channels.

We insisted on an large upper terrace accessible from both the master bedroom and upper lounge and positioned the house to ensure maximum sun on the pool and terraces. We added an upper sun lounge, ideal for autumn and spring when the evening temperatures fall and great for summer to overlook the pool and garden.

The huge covered naya provides welcome relief from the sun in the summer. It now has glass curtains which makes it even better for out of season lets.

We extensively landscaped the garden for privacy and enjoyment with enough garden furniture so there are no fights over the sun loungers!

About David Bowles

We were tired of renting properties which were second rate and not up to the standard of our own home so we had this built, use it ourselves and try to keep on top of the detail.

David Bowles purchased this villa in 2004

Why David Bowles chose Xàbia

Quality. Even though the villa was only built in 2004 has been recently been extended and upgraded. All three bathrooms were renovated and the kitchen re-fitted.

The reviews here and on Trip Adviser speak for themselves.

What makes this villa unique

The unique benefit of this property is the combination of first a high quality villa, second in a superb location with finally, being English, an excellent and colourful garden as a backdrop to the pool.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The best endorsement is 6 repeat bookings in 2007. We do not have a 'guests' book so comments are unsolicited. Comments have been 'everything exceeded our expectations and we were impressed with how well equipped it was - especially outside' and 'the quality of fitments far exceeded our expectations' and 'your beautiful villa is just perfect so comfortable and well equipped'. ''We can see that you and your wife have worked hard to ensure that your villa is well maintained and that your customers comfort and enjoyment is of genuine importance to you.' Other unsolicited comments 'Just to let you know the villa was excellent we cant fault a thing everything we needed was there and of a high standard. We had a lovely holiday thank you so much'. Perhaps the one which sums it all up is Well our holidays are over and what a fabulous holiday it has been in your fantastic villa. We worked it out while we were there and we have had 11 villas in and around Javea but this one is was the best.'

A first return to this hidden gem

  • 5 of 5

A top of the range villa tucked away at a local beauty spot 12k from Javea.A nice neighborhood and very private .The villa and grounds are so well designed.There are a couple of restaurants very close by although pricey.

Very easy alfresco living by day and night in the shade of the naya cooled by 2 ceiling fans.The gardens are beautifully lit at night and look fabulous from the panoramic lounge,

The level of finish at the property and the quality throughout definitely qualify this villa as the best we have ever stayed in .Also the owner is very efficient and easy to deal with and helpful as are the local eng,ish speaking agents.

A couple of recommendations-

The cliff top restaurants close by are rather pricey but at the one up at the lighthouse there is a little cocktail bar erected which is surprisingly affordable and does very limited snacks too.

Cafe bar Ethos in Javea is worth a look run by English people with an eclectic menu at a price but something very different .

Further a field Altea old town is well worth exploring and lunching perhaps at El Castel on the terrace or upstairs inside.

Absolutely gorgeous

  • 5 of 5

My wife ,two teenage children and I spent a fabulous two weeks in Javea in this beautiful villa.It was really well decorated,both inside and out. All the rooms were extremely comfortable and the main bedroom was exceptional.The villa itself was even more attractive than the pictures posted on the web. The garden and pool area were very well maintained and all needs catered for. As well as that the surrounding area was very picturesque and peaceful. The owner, David was very helpful and overall our experience was a very positive one . My family would highly recommend this villa without hesitation.We've stayed in many villas over the years and this villa would definitely rank at the top.

Our two weeks at Casa Isabella were perfect. The standard of the villa is exceptional, the naya, pool and garden are all top class. Both my wife and myself loved the couple of weeks we spent there and we may consider booking again for 2013.

Can I give 11 out of 10?

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have been regular visitors to Javea for over 10 years and before finding your property I thought we had already discovered the best villas in the area. How wrong I was!

Casa Isabella with it’s lovely grounds, kidney shaped pool and shapely architecture including balconies and terraces is wonderfully spectacular from both external and internal perspectives.

We thoroughly enjoyed the many facilities including the generous outside areas including the tiled area around the pool itself and the gardens, the lovely pool which was just the right temperature, the two independent lounge areas (one upstairs) both with flat screen TV’s offering multiple channel choices (most useful when you have kids of various ages) and the luxurious bedrooms so beautifully equipped (including more TV’s!) and tastefully decorated. The air conditioning provided perfect room temperatures (we all slept really well and utilised the shutters on the windows as black-out blinds ensuring the kids awoke fresh faced and most importantly not prematurely!) and the several dining and relaxing areas left us regularly spoilt for choice as to where to sit!

Marks out of 10? Well it has to be a resounding 10 (can I give 11 out of 10?)

By far the best villa we have ever rented

  • 5 of 5

We've taken quite a number of villa holidays over the past few years and must say that this is by far the best villa we have ever rented, in all respects. Apart from the obvious facilities the villa itself has to offer we were very impressed with the gardens, and the colour they brought particulalry at this time of year in Spain. Also the house has everything that is needed for daily living, from the smallest utensils, this can be very frustrating when they are not present! Both the restaurants on the Cap were excellent as were Los Remos and La Perla in Javea. We had a wonderful time and would happily recommend the villa to others.

Beautifull Villa

  • 5 of 5

We had a great holiday at casa isabella it had everything we needed and is exactly as it looks on website-beautifull.

We could walk to the supermarket , 4 restaurants and the tennis club . The kids loved the wifi and seperate 2nd lounge with their own sky tv ! Javea is a few mins away by car, we have been to javea 4 times previously and this was our favourite villa and area. We would recommend it highly.
