Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Excellent garden apartment
The garden and salt water pool are lovely although I did have to skim-clean the surface of the pool after a few weeks as it had accumulated rather a lot of feathers and leaves (Mick/Pirrko didn't seem to notice!). Also the fabulous Pebbletec surround of the pool was rather peppered with bird lime which really should have been cleaned off regularly. The apartment, at the moment, can only be reached by driving around 2km on a dirt track and over a (very small) river bed. However Mick said the local council have agreed to maintain and tarmac it, so this should be resolved fairly soon, but it being Spain it might be a while for this happen; I feel it should be mentioned in the description until it is. The apartment does not have a cooker, (only a microwave and a gas hob), nor does it have its own washing machine; you have to use the owner's machine which is located a short walk away in an outbuilding and this should also be mentioned in the description. Sharing the owner's washing machine wouldn't normally be a big issue however one morning when we had pre-treated a small load we took it round to their machine, only to find the owners had already loaded the machine with their washing. Pirrko saw us walk back with our unwashed load. So we waited thinking that the machine would be free in a short time but after about two hours we gave up and had to hand rinse them to remove the pre-treatment. They told us the next day that because there was heavy rain forecast they had abandoned their load in the machine!! The wifi was a little patchy at times but was perfectly adequate for checking emails and making Alexa do her stuff! There was also a bit of noise pollution from surrounding properties' dogs (which can't really be helped), but also from the owner's television (which can be helped!). The minor problems we encountered weren't serious enough to detract from a great holiday, but a few things could be improved quite easily hence the four stars.

Thank you for your feedback and the points have all been noted. On a positive front the road is now tarmaced all the way to our gates. The sandstone surround to the pool has been replaced and is now easy to clean and the apartment now has a dedicated 20Mbs internet connection. I do feel most of these points should have been mentioned at the time and they would all have been addressed, we live next to the apartment and were in contact with the guests most days while observing their privacy. I feel the issue with the washing machine is rather pedantic and could have been resolved with a question, there is also a net for removing a few feathers from the pool!

Lives up to all the promises
My wife and I spent two weeks in the Orange Groce apartment and enjoyed every minute. Waking to the scent of orange blossoms and picking your mandarins and lemons fresh from the trees was a delight as was the lovely and spacious garden with the sea and mountain views in the distance. Abundant walking paths around the countryside and having a bicycle available was a bonus. One does need a car, but many sights are nearby. Michael and Pirkko were wonderful hosts, sharing their friends and stories willingly without imposing on one's privacy. The space itself was roomy and comfortable with everything provided one could need. We wish we could come here more often but it is a long journey from western Canada.

First Class accomodation
We stayed in the Orange Grove apartment.This accommodation has been a real 'find' for us. If you are wanting peace and quiet this is the place! Although a car is needed (unless you like walking) it is not far from the town of Vera and its beaches and it is also about 5 miles from Mojacar Playa. The owners, Mick & Pirkko, are very kind and helpful and ensure you have everything you need whether it is fresh eggs from their own hens or chairs for the beach. There is also a swimming pool which is kept very clean. They also produce their own olive oil which is available to buy to bring home.

WOW
We stayed at this property for two weeks during May, all of the positive remarks made by previous contributors we found to be true, very clean, quiet location, great pool, splendid hosts who are not in your face at all. The apartment was fully equipped even down to the cling film. Not forgetting Stig a true bonus to the holiday. Picking your own lemons for the g and t was novel, and the fantastic setting for the odd glass of wine in the evening will be sorely missed. All in all cant wait for our next visit to such a wonderful property.

Peacefull & relaxing Spainish holiday
Susan & I stayed for 7 nights in March. The surroundings were pleasant & tranquil & the pool was great (a bit cold but I braved it) The grounds were full of Olive, Orange & Lemon trees (very good with your G&T) and made this a lovely secluded place to relax. We stayed in the appartment which was very clean & comfortable and more spacious than it looks in the pictures. Michael & Pirkko were excelent hosts & were around if needed but left us to get on with our holiday. We rented a car & found some nice villages & restaurants. We would definately recommend Finca Ardolenda to our friends & anyone else looking for a peacefull Spainish getaway. Nigel & Susan

Perfect start to our Spanish adventure
We stayed here for 5 nights at the beginning of a 2 week stay in Spain. The finca itself was lovely, well equipped and no complaints at all. The grounds were beautiful and so relaxing, we loved being surrounded by olive and fruit trees. Michael and Pirkko were lovely hosts, were there and helpful if we needed anything, but not intrusive at all. We would recommend trying some of their own olive oil, so tasty we bought a bottle home.

GETAWAY
We had talked about what would be a perfect hoilday before we booked anywhere this year.What we wanted was a place that that was quiet ,where you could please yourself on times,where there was no problems over sun loungers or overcrowded,chlorine drenched pools (somewhere you could have a proper swim in the morning!).We wanted a venue that was also near enough to beaches and places of interest and you wouldn't have to worry about the weather-at a reasonable price. You might think that would be difficult to find -but we found all of these qualities in August at the Orange Grove Apartment. The added bous was that the apartment was owned by the ideal hosts Michael and Pirrko -who live nearbyand leave you to your own devices-but are always on hand to offer friendly advice if you need it.We also made friends with the people staying in the nearby Old Stables and had a couple of really enjoyable nights sharing barbacues. We wanted a holiday where we could relax and wind down - we found the ideal location at Finca Arboleda!

vacances reposantes dans la nature
notre séjour se termine après 15 j passés à FINCA ARBOLEDA, site très agréable ,piscine également, studio très bien agencé avec beaucoup de vaisselle comme à la maison. Avons pris tous nos repas dehors sur la terrasse. En effet la maison des propriétaires est juxtaposée au studio ce que nous ne voyons pas sur le site , mais ils sont tellement discrets que cela ne nous a pas gênés. Pour amateurs de calme et de repos, c'est bien. Par contre très loin des sites à visiter. GRENADE, SEVILLE sont à plus de 2 h de route. Quelques villages bien sympathiques à visiter autour.

About the neighbourhood
Finca Arboleda is situated 5 minutes drive from Vera near Mojacar in Costa Almeria Spain and is set in 5000 sq metres, about 1.25 acres. Swimming pool, the beautiful private 10 x 5 metre Pebbletec pool is only shared between people staying in the villa and the apartment. It has a natural salt purifying system so the chlorine is hardly noticeable and the salt content is only the same as a human tear. The garden is set on three levels. Our house, the apartment and the pool are on the top level, the middle level is planted with olives and the villa is on the lower level with more trees. Overall the garden is planted with over 100 mature trees including 55 olives from which we press our own extra virgin oil that you welcome to try and we offer
