"Would certainly use it again!"
We stayed at this Villa for the Christmas week and had a great time. The Villa was bigger than we anticipated and the Conservatory was a great room for us to use for games nights and a sunshine breakfast, watching the squirrels. The location, for us, was super. In a very private setting, yet on a lovely individual estate. Not really practical to walk in to Benidorm central, but taking a taxi is easy enough....although you may have to tell the driver where it is! Lovely Restaurant up the road called something like the 'Carbon Restaurant'. Great food and service.....and walkable. The only downside of the property was the hot water supply, which wasn't really 'up to scratch'. Adrian, the owner (very helpfull, by the way) assured us that it was in hand to improve asap. All in all, well worth a visit!!

We have just returned from Villa Maria and for the price it exceeded all expectations. The villa itself was a great size and very homely. We were met by Adrian on our arrival as well as our shopping w… More

"Fantastic villa, fantastic holiday *****"
We arrived at Villa Maria at gone midnight (we pre booked Costa-Blanca-Transfers.com, reasonably priced, on time, lovely driver - would recommend) and Adrian was there to meet us and happy to spend time showing us where everything was and how it all worked (even though we were all a little tipsy) he even taught us the Spanish for Hen Party.
The following day when we couldn't find a key we called Adrián and he was at the villa within 20 minutes and showed us exactly where it was, as he had done the night before (we forgot!) but he didn't mind at all and assured us we were not the first (we felt pretty silly!)
The Villa it's self is fantastic, loads of space and well equipped. We all commented on how much bigger it was in reality compared to the photos which don't do it justice.
As we knew we would be arriving late we had asked Adrián if anywhere nearby would still be open at that time. He told of a 24 hours service station which is nearby and also suggested we could do online shopping at the local Mercadona which he would be happy to take delivery of for us. We decided to have a go online, Adrián sent us the link and we ordered in all the basics (tea, coffee, milk, bread etc) lots of bottles of water and lots of alcohol (Saved carrying them!) The web site had the option of being in English or Spanish and was pretty straightforward to use and allowed us to pay by card. Adrian emailed us before we had left the uk to let us know everything had arrived and he kindly put everything away for us. Fantastic idea, I would recommend doing this. We did pop to the supermarket during our stay to pick up a few bits and bobs which as others have said is only a 5 minute walk away and has a few bars next door to it.
We took a walk in to outskirts of Benidorm one day which wasn't too far, and got taxis in on an evening which cost about 8 €uros, we spent about 10€uros each when we ate out which included two courses, all our drinks and a pretty good tip (Bills came in at about €6 - €8 a head) we didn't have a bad meal once, so cheap and so good. We also used the BBQ at the villa on the final night which was great.
It's a fantastic Villa, in a great location with a very friendly and helpful owner. We are considering returning for a girl's holiday next year and I may also take my family out there as it would also be perfect for children with so much space inside and out for them to run about.
All in all I had a fantastic "despedida de soltera" just wish we were still there.

"Amazing Villa. Made our holiday perfect!"
I travelled to Benidorm with 10 friends for a hen do and we stayed at Villa Maria and I have to say it absolutely exceeded my expectations. There was so much space even with 11 of us. Adrian kindly brought us another bed so that everyone had a bed. There were more than enough bathrooms and the outdoor area was stunning. Such a big area and I really felt I got value for money. There was wi fi and a telephone as well.
Adrian was so helpful. Our flight was delayed by about 4 hours but he waited patiently for us to arrive and stayed to give us a tour and answer any questions we had. When we ran out of hot water he came round within minutes to change the gas heater cylinder for us. There were even a couple of pizzas and bottles of wine in the fridge for us as by the time we finally arrived the supermarket had shut. The villa is perfect. I would recommend it to any families or any groups and if I was to go back to Benidorm I would definitely stay here again. It was a 5 minute taxi ride to the centre of Benidorm and a 5 minute walk to supermarkets and other restaurants. What a great location. Private but near enough to all the attractions. Thank you so much Adrian for having this villa to rent out!

"Amazing &[--] unforgettable stay at Villa Maria!!"
I stayed here in March 2012 for 1 week with my family and friends to celebrate my sisters 30th birthday. There was a total of 10 people in our group aged from 20-50. The villa itself is only 10-15 eur… More
Thank's for this great review! Villa Maria is great for big groups, also for small ones, even couples have rented it. It is great for a ten people group because everyone can find it's space and feel like home, next to the bbq in the "pergola", or in the garden under the shade of a tree. I remember... I'm happy you enjoyed so much.

"Wonderful house, extremely helpful owner!"
Myself, my husband, my 3 in-laws and two family friends all stayed at Villa Maria for 6 days. There was MORE than enough room for all seven of us, the house is extremely spacious - the photo's do not do it justice in terms of space! The pool is beautiful and kept very clean, the house contains all amenities needed plus more (dishwasher, television, cooker, BBQ etc). The area is very quiet and beautiful and is very close to Bendidorm city either by bus/taxi/car. Close to all great tourist attractions such a terra mittica, terra natura and aqua natura. Supermarket is very close by which is also handy, aswell as a few local cafe/restaurants and bars. The villa also has access for its guests to use the community pool which is very large and well kept (and close to the villa itself).
The owner of the apartment is extremely helpful! He speaks perfect english and was more than willing to answer all questions we had. He went out of his way to offer us a transfer service from the airport even though it is not something he normally offers to guests, he gave us lots of information about the local area and showed us how to use all the appliances at the house aswell.
My family had a wonderful holiday there and I would highly recommend this house! We will hopefully be using it again in the future.
It was great to have clients like you. I had the pleasure to meet you when comming from the airport, although we don't normally do transfers (the only time until the date) it was a great experience I will do again if you come in the future. Seems you had a good time in Villa Maria. Thank's for everything and for the good comment, our clients still use the dartboard you bought!
