Just over a kilometer from the center of Alicante but easily walkable. The accommodation is modern, comfortable and spacious. We were greeted by Rafaela who was very helpful - she had stocked the fridge with food, water and orange juice.
There are a few restaurants (and supermarkets) fairly close by. We tried the Lebanese restaurant which was good but a little expensive. Most evenings we ate in the center of Alicante and walked back (it felt quite safe) to loose some of the calories.
Firstly I would like to say how helpful and welcoming the owner, Natalia, and her friend, Rafaela are. The apartment was perfect for me and my brother but in particular my mum who had an en suite bathroom.
There is a washing machine, iron, hair dryer and most importantly for mum a kettle.
The apartment is situated just 5 minutes walk from the local supermarket which is convenient. A walk to the marina takes about 25 minutes.
Davis is a restaurant recommended by the owner and is less than a 10 minute walk form the apartment. Big tasty steaks and very reasonably priced.
A trip to the Castillo De Santa Barbara is a must to get the best views of Alicante.
I would certainly recommend this property.
Arrived and found several tapas dishes in the fridge, ready for heating. All minor things like washing up liquid, pepper/salt/sugar/coffee, coffee filters etc available. and milk/juice in the fridge.
WIFI excellent. Television showed only spanish programs.
The flat is situated in a residential area with swimmingpool (a bit too cold in early April but open). A nice bakery about 300 meters distant. We didn't find a supermarked nearby but as we played golf every day we just stopped at one of several large supermarkeds in the outskirts.
We will probably come back for golf next year and will try to book again.
This was a beautiful apartment and the service and support of the owner was first class. There was excellent communication leading up to us traveling and upon arrival, nothing was too much trouble. There was even a traditional Spanish welcome meal that had been prepared for us. There was even some basic food left for us. The owner gave us a great induction to both the apartment and the town and supplied leaflets and other tourist information to make our stay as comfortable and memorable as possible.
I would recommend this apartment 100%.
I stayed at the apartment for two weeks with my husband and two young children.
We had a fantastic holiday and the apartment was perfect for us.
The apartment is very spacious, impeccably clean and decorated in a contemporary style, a place you would be happy to live in.
Natalia and her friend, Rafaela, were very helpful and very friendly. If we asked for any information, they provided it instantly. We were also impressed with the food provisions they provided on our arrival, including what looked like and tasted like home made delicacies. A real treat. There was also toiletries and cleaning products there to use. Having two small children, it was a real bonus to be able to wash clothes and have all the washing liquid etc provided. In fact, the apartment has really everything you need.
The apartment is in a residential complex, which is mainly occupied by families with children. There is a private pool, small playground and trampoline shared by the residents. We used the pool every day, it was never busy, and all the other residents were very friendly.
The apartment is approximately a 10 minute bus ride from the town centre. It was very easy to catch the bus, the number 1 and number 2 buses came very regularly and the bus stop is round the corner. If you buy a TAM card for multiple journeys, it works out very cheap. The buses stop running at 10:30 PM, but taxis are relatively cheap here. We didn't have a car whilst we were staying at the apartment, but there is car parking in a secure garage under the apartments.
Just round the corner from the apartment is a bakery, which is fantastic, and 2 cafes/restaurants. These were good too, and were always busy with locals.
I highly recommend this
apartment. If we get a chance, we will be returning.
