"Hot, relaxing, lovely- just what we needed with everything we needed!"
Just returned from nearly 2 weeks in this lovely villa. It was our second stay and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Deb, the owner was fantastic from the start of booking right through to checking on us during our stay. Nothing was too much trouble, even when another family decided to join us for a week, last minute! Great to have new wardrobe in downstairs bedroom- much better than the previous and sofa bed in lounge was new and so much better than one before. Dawn, the cleaning lady had prepared the villa with our daughters in mind and made the bedroom extra "girly" for them, which was a really thoughtful touch. Was fantastic to have the car to get around, especially as the roads are a little uneven. Only went to shops and market a couple of times as relaxation was the name of our game on holiday! However, it made such a difference as we had no car last time. Was great to be able to get the big bottles of water back from shops without breaking our backs! Everything you need to self cater is at the villa. New bbq was a great improvement too. We enjoyed the lovely evening stroll to the shops and bars and ate out 3 or 4 times, meeting some lovely people on the way. Thanks for everything Deb- we have returned extremely tanned, relaxed and happy and can't wait to get back to Spain!
Many thanks for your feedback. It's great to hear you had another great holiday and are considering coming back next year. Thank you so much for looking after our villa

"Great holiday and lovely villa"
Lovely villa, Debs and Mike all extremely helpful and very friendly, nothing was to much trouble. Deb even showed us around the local area and told us the best places to go. Having use of the car was very helpful as we were able to get out and about easier and visit more of the local attractions. The villa was very nice and covered everything we needed, having the bedroom and bathroom downstairs was perfect for my mother in law who cant walk very far and the smaller room upstairs was perfect for my young son. We spent a lot of time at the pool and everyone was very friendly. Our flights were delayed on the way to Spain due to the French air traffic controllers strike but Deb kept in constant contact to make sure that there was someone to collect us from Alicante airport when we finally arrived and even offered to go the supermarket for us if needed.
We would definitely recommend the villa to anyone looking for a nice family holiday
Thank you so much for your feedback.
Its good to hear that you had a great holiday and loved our villa. No thanks to the French Air Traffic Controllers and your long delay in arriving, however great that we were able to rearrange your pick up at Alicante airport.
Thank you for looking after our villa and we hopefully will have the opportunity of welcoming you back!

"Poorly equipped with cheap fittings, table walked across the floor"
We hired the villa because looking at the photos it did look very good. After a couple of emails, we came to a price for 3 months rental with the owner Deborah>The points that need raising are that… More
Many thanks for you r feedback.
The guest was made fully aware of the heating arrangement for the winter months. He wasn't prepared to pay for the air conditioning and he was made fully aware that he was responsible for replacing and paying for the calor gas for the heater. These 2 guests along with family/friends that he didi not ask me if they could stay between them ran up an electricity bill of £500 in 3 months. To put that into context more than double that our friends in similar villas has incurred. To expect me then to contribute towards calor gas bottles that I never agreed to contribute towards I think was unreasonable. I refunded the £100 security deposit in good faith even though It would have been justified to withhold this given the extortionate electricity usage.
The bedroom furniture and beds in the down stairs bedroom have since been placed. This booking was for a couple using the main bedroom only and if I had been asked if family could stay and they were using the downstairs bedroom I would have made arrangements to replace before arrival.
Apologies that you found problems with the sun loungers. New ones we're purchased in April. Utensils will fail and break over time and I am sorry that you did experience problems however and as you stated there were replaced at my cost.
The villa has plenty of wardrobes and storage space however it's unfortunate that given the amount of items thee guests brought with them in their car they felt they needed more..
Future guests can be assured by reading the reviews from guests that have stayed since this guest left in early April. The review has only just been left as he has been trying to get me to pay for the calor gas which I decided wasn't a reasonable request.
I always do my upmost to make guests stay comfortable and enjoyable and it is disappointing to hear this guests comments.

We arrived at the villa the week before Easter ,with our family & close friends. We had a fantastic week.
Deb the owner went out of her way to make sure we had a great stay & we did. She arranged transfers for us etc. we also had young children so she made sure we had car seats for all of them plus cot etc.
The children went in the communal pool every day & we also spent afew days at the sports club,we're there is a pool with slides,cafe,bar & trampolines etc.
We also made use of the car that came with the villa. There was 7 of us in all so it was ideal. We went down torrevieja,guardamar & the beach. The bars & restaurants are excellent but really recommend 'Bonnies'.
The Villa is lovely & clean & met all our requirements .
Even though we were two separate family's it was spacious, so we didn't get on top of one another. It was just right size for us all. There's also a BBQ at the villa which we used one night. I would highly recommend this villa to friends & family, as we have already booked again to go back next year.
Next time we are doing 10 days instead of 7 as we enjoyed it so much.
Can't wait to go....I'm already on count down xxx
Thank you so much for your positive review. Its great to hear that you all had an enjoyable holiday and that you made use of the car! Many thanks for your booking instructions for next year and we look forward to welcoming you back.

"great value pleasant and relaxing holiday"
The property is in good condition and the description was accurate. The price included the use of a car which made a big difference in value as previously we have had to hire a car separately. We shared with the villa with our extended family totalling 7 + an infant and we were comfortable. The walk to the nearest commercial area was exactly as described if not a little closer once we had found our bearings. Overall the stay was really enjoyable and great value for money and we have booked again in 2014.
Many thanks for your feedback.
Its great to hear that you had an enjoyable and relaxing holiday! Many thanks for confirming your holiday for Oct 2014 and it will be a pleasure to welcome you and your family back.You will find some changes at the villa as we have upgraded certain items. We have also installed Sky TV and internet.

"Villa needs an overhaul"
My family stayed in this villa in August 2013 for 10 days. There were lots of things in the villa which need replacing or require attention. Towel rail in downstairs bathroom broken, upstairs one was … More
Many thanks for your feedback.
Your review of the property is very old ie review only added in Jan 2014 when your stay was in August 2013. Whilst I appreciate your feedback, I am pleased to advise that all the items you have referred to have since your visit been replaced.
I will review and amend the advert on this site as the parasol and barbeque previously had been located on the roof terrace however feedback from guests was they preferred it to be located in the front garden hence the reason for it being moved.
There is plenty of chairs and wooden expensive sunloungers at the villa complete with cushions. New fold up sun loungers for the pool are being purchased for the 2014 summer season.
In respect of the car, as you know I did pay for the aircon to be regassed for you, however a few days after, the aircon wasnt working and unfortunately the feedback from the garage was that the unit must be broken.We were unaware of any issues with the aircon unit and apologise if you found this to be uncomfortable.All other guests have been happy with the car and the feedback we have had is that guests prefer to use the windows as using the aircon unit results in higher fuel usage.
Thankyou for taking the time to provide your feedback and as you havent said to the contrary, I hope and trust that you had an enjoyable holiday.

"never felt so relaxed"
lovely welcome from mike showed us around and took time out of his owe time to get us some things we needed because we arrived late.it was a home from home we spent every day in the pool witch was lov… More
Thank you very much for your review.
It's great to hear that you and your family had a good relaxing holiday. Thank you also for mentioning the lovely welcome and great service that you received from my keyholder. He often does go out of his way for guests and its very nice to hear that you appreciated that.
Thanks again and we look forwward to welcoming you back to our villa!

"do not go until they get a different key holder"
Myself and my husband decided to take a last minute holiday and booked a weeks holiday through Debbie the owner. Debbie was very pleasant and helpful and the transaction was very quick and easy to do… More
Many thanks for your review and its great to hear that you had a good holiday! As you state yours was a last minute holiday offered at a very good price.
In respect of your comments in respect of my keyholder its only fair that I outline the circumstances of your arrival - I did explain that as you had booked a morning flight and as I had guests vacating the villa on the morning of your arrival, that I couldnt guarantee that the villa would be ready upon your arrival. As it happened my keyholder and his wife worked extremely hard that morning to ensure the villa was ready for you, even though I could have stated that you would have to wait to gain access until 4pm. It was unfortunate that they had just left the villa on completion of the cleaning,whilst you were en route hence why no one was at home to answer the phone. The bad mobile signal at the time also meant that they couldnt be contacted. This was unfortunate situation that was quickly resolved. I do accept that an apology should have been offered at the time. A lot of effort and flexibility had been delivered in order to get the villa ready for your arrival.
I am unaware of any other concerns that you had in respect of my keyholder but if you can please elaborate I will of course discuss this with him.
In response to your comments about the decoration, I welcome you to be more specific please as I will always make any required repairs where needed. The staining of the sealant around the bath will be replaced when we go over to the villa next week, as we are visiting to conduct an end of summer review to ensure the villa is in good order.
Its also unfortunate that all the new batch of towels were in the wash when you arrived given that the previous guests had just vacated. I will however review any older towels that may also now need replacing.
The kitchen utensils are extensive so again I am not quite sure what your comments refer to, but will review next week.
Finally, I think it only fair to point out that only a very small proportion of guests leave reviews on this site and I receive many, many more complimentary comments in respect of the service offered by my keyholder.He has always offered support and advice to guests and been flexible in ensuring the villa is ready for guests arrival. He often also shops for food/water for those guests that arrive after the supermarket has closed.
I must admit to being disappointed with the title of this review, which I think is unfair!
After 6 years of working at the villa, my keyholder/cleaner is retiring at the end of 2013 and I am very greatful for all the work and support he has offered!.
To those many people that have already booked the villa, as well as those thinking of booking,I am sure that you will take my response to this review into consideration and the review in general in context.
I am sure that many, many more great holidays will be had at our villa!!!!!

"Great Villa at Great Price"
Travelled with family which included 6 year old nephew. Perfect size for us. Great location, away from the little strip of bars and restaurants. Communal pool not busy and we had to ourselves most of the time, very clean. Apartment has all required amenities. La Marina is a quiet place and I wouldn't go there for anything other than a quiet getaway. Surrounding areas of Benidorm, Alicante and Santa Pola are very easily reached. We hired the car from the owner, Deborah, at an extremely reasonable price. Only negative about our whole stay was that within the urbanization of La Marina many beautiful houses and apartments sits either unfinished or finished and never lived in because of the downturn of the Spanish (and everywhere else) economy. This obviously wasn't the owners fault and only a slight negative. Communication and advice from owner was terrific, met from the airport and taken directly to villa, again at very reasonable price. Deposit refunded in a very timely manner. If you're looking for a quiet getaway with great weather in a nice location then this is for you.
Many thanks for your review.
Its pleasing to hear that you had a great holiday and made use of the communal pool.
We are always happy to help with arrangements including sorting airport transfers for our guests - that way you dont have to worry about having to find the villa yourselves or relying upon a taxi driver to know the location of the villa.
Thanks ever so much for recommending our villa to your friends and we look forward to welcoming you and family back in the future!
