Description from owner
Located in the heart of Alicante old town, at the foot of Castillo de Santa Barbara, this immaculately presented first floor apartment is just five minutes walk from the Port of Alicante and the main beach. Step out of the front door and stroll along pedestrianised streets lined with cafes, bars and restaurants. Basilica Santa Maria and the gallery of Modern Art are a stone's throw away, with La Rambla and the Mercado within easy walking distance.We bought this property because we wanted to be in amongst Spanish people and culture: we want our guests to have the same experience. Stay for a week - or a month - Alicante is the ideal base to explore the Valencia / Murcia region, Ibiza, Mallorca and the Med Coast north and south.We live in Australia and this is our "home-away-from home": the apartment is fitted out with everything you could possibly need in order to just walk in, relax and live in comfort. A filtered water system means that you don't have to buy

- Very Good
“Perfectly located and all mod cons”
This was our first trip to Alicante and we were pleasantly surprised by the whole experience. The weather was perfect - nice and warm, especially coming from a harsh Scottish Winter. We enjoyed the parade on the Epiphany, which was just round the corner from the apartment. The apartment itself was very clean, comfortable and pleasantly decorated and there was nothing missing for a really good base for a family of four to easily access all that Alicante has to offer.
Thanks for providing a review. We're glad you had such a good time!
“Location, Location, Location.”
Spacious, clean, quiet first floor apartment in pedestrian street in old town, very central to everything beautiful Alicante has to offer. The apartment is very well maintained and equipped with everything you would ever need plus a handy 'corner shop' across the pedestrianised street. Booking was easy and efficient online with the owner and the owners representative met us at the apartment to show us around and hand over the keys. The breakage deposit was paid back in a timely manner. I liked best the spaciousness, facilities and location of the apartment and liked least the lack of natural day light in the apartment but that is due to the nature of the buildings in the Old Town and I would not let that detract from the fabulous experience of staying amongst the locals and I would not hesitate to rent this apartment again or recommend to a friend. A fantastic apartment in a fabulous city - if you like old town Alicante do not miss out on staying here!
Thank you for such a positive review and recommendation. We are glad that you enjoyed yourselves.
If you want real Alicante and Spain, this is the spot for you. Fully equipped and with Wi-Fi. Perfect location in the old town yet three streets away from the beach, harbour, cafe/restaurant/bars concentrations and another 5 minutes from the shopping quarter. All transport links within easy access too. You are really spoilt for everything here. We will be returning next year. Meet and greet at the aprtment with the managers who explain all there is to know. Thoroughly recommended.
It's always great to hear that people love Alicante and all it has to offer. We look forward to welcoming you back again.
My friend and I ended up searching frantically on the internet for somewhere to stay when the landlord of the flat we were originally staying in called to say that her flat had flooded and we wouldn't be able to stay there. Alison's flat popped up as available on Holiday Lettings and I emailed her immediately. Despite travelling back to Australia, and not planning on renting her flat for said week Alison was kind enough to let us stay. Communication was excellent and Alison without doubt went out of her way to help us out. Pauline and her husband (key holders) were at the flat to hand over keys and explain how everything worked. Having such a lovely time, my friend and I decided to extend our stay. We emailed Alison and again she went out of her way to allow us to rent the flat for a further two days. Pauline and her husband were again accommodating in meeting us at a convenient time to sign back over the keys. When we arrived there were tea bags, coffee, milk, water and nibbles left for us to enjoy. There is a great big TV with Canal plus, radio installed in the walls! a jacuzzi bath, air conditioning, hairdryer, wi-fi, fully equipped kitchen, washing machine dryer, dishwasher, microwave, oven etc There was even a little shopping trolley to help you carry your groceries back from the shop. There were cleaning products left (washing up liquid, washing powder, liquid soap, bleach) a vaccuum, dustpan and brush, etc to gather up that annoying sand that we kept bringing in with us after a day at the beach. They really had thought of everything. The bedrooms are spacious, clean and extremely comfortable...my friend and I called the 2nd bedroom the honeymoon suite! Absolutley beautifully decorated. The honeymoon suite has a double bed and ensuite bathroom. Great power showers in both bathrooms. Plenty of wardrobe space too. The other main bedroom has two single beds pushed together - really comfy and the third bedroom is separated from the living room with a partition. It has a single bed but is the coolest of the lot as this is where the air conditioning unit is. You could comfortably sleep 5 in this flat and if necessary sleep one more on the sofa. The chairs in the living room were extremely comfortable made even better by the foot rests! Lovely dining room to sit and eat at if you want to eat in any nights. Location was perfect - about 5 min walk to the beach, 5 mins to the port and just around the corner to the old town bars. Set back enough that you are not disturbed at all by noise yet close enough to everything to feel part of the action. We were lucky enough to be the first guests to stay in the newly rennovated flat and with it were all new plates, cups, glasses, utensils, bedding etc. An absolute bargain. I would definitely stay here again. If you're visiting Alicante you should definitely consider staying here.
Thank you for providing such a detailed and positive review. We are so glad that you enjoyed your time in Alicante and hope to welcome you back again soon.
