About Jim McKeown
We live in Co.Antrim in Ireland and the apartment is our holiday home in the sun. We spend most of our holiday time in Los Arenales and we are happy to share this lovely area with family and guests.
Jim McKeown purchased this Apartment in 2008
Why Jim McKeown chose Arenals del Sol
We chose to buy this apartment because of its location, close to Alicante airport and close to the beach as well as being close to the beautiful cities of Alicante and Elche. Also because of the stunning 360 degree views of the sea and the mountains.
What makes this Apartment unique
Arenales is a Spanish village close to Alicante airport with its wonderful beach and promenade. In summer it is full of bustle with mainly Spanish family holidaymakers. In winter it hibernates with space to relax and ramble on the beach or the national park.

Arenals Del Sol, Alicante.
Lovely, well kept apartment, roof top terrace and communal pool. Quiet area. Free Wi-Fi in the apartment. Not too far from the beach, although a little hilly. Bus service available to Alicante, Gran Alacant and Santa Pola and only a few kilometres away.
Lovely weather and a relaxing time spent here.
Hi J - thanks for the review and for looking after the plants!! Welcome back anytime. Jim
Lovely quiet location for a true Spanish experience, lovely clean apartment.
Great apartment in a great area, just what we wanted a very relaxing break, loads of living space and a beautiful sun terrace on the roof, would highly recommended this accomodation
Thanks for the lovely review G&J - hope you will return in the future. Best regards - Jim
Good apartment close to beach
Property is clean and well proportioned. Walk to the beach is challenging as it is a steep climb. Bars and restaurants are many and varied. Beware no cash point in the area.
Thanks for the review - the cash point is beside the Tourist office and police office.
Best equipped apartment I’ve stayed in and spotlessly clean . Fab roof terrace for relaxing and watching the sunset . Swimming pool beside the apartment great for cooling down and lovely beach close by too . Thanks Jim really enjoyed our stay
Thanks for the lovely comments N.
We stayed at Jim's place for exactly 15 days (2 adults and 3 children).
***Can't thank Jim enough for all his help before and during our stay. ***
The apartment has everything you could possibly need. Air con in every room is a bonus as well as the ceiling fans!
Loved the walk-in shower!
Tv with access to all sorts of apps (Netflix) was well used too!
Outside the lounge we loved sitting at the little balcony that overlooks the pool and we also quickly learnt when are quiter times at the pool (if you go in the morning 9-11am or in the afternoon 15-17pm) as it was very busy at times.
Pool was really nice, the small one was just perfect for relaxing, especially in hot weather as the water was really warm in it.
The roof terrace was spot on too, table with chairs and loungers!
Few mins walk down the street are all the shops, bar, restaurants.
We recommend Pizza, Pasta e Basta - giant pizza and soo delicious, chips portions were the biggest I ever got in restaurant.
Al Dente restaurant was really nice too but portions were on a bit small side for us.
Ice cream places are to die for! - Muu Ice and Jijona!!!
Walk back to the apartment maybe wasn't our favourite part as quite up the hill but we managed ha!
Very good bus connection with Alicante and other places.
10 mins by bus to Gran Alacant - Thursday morning there's a market - food, clothes, shoes, accessories, toys, gadgets - very close to the market there's little shop with English products
30-40 mins bus to Alicante for only 1.50 euro per head
Brilliant quick connection to the airport by bus, again 1.50 euro per head and the bus stop is maybe 50m from the house.
All in all we enjoyed our stay a lot!
House is in brilliant location and I'm sure everyone will enjoy their stay there as much as we did!!!!
Thanks a lot Jim !
