The house has two outside areas for relaxing. The roof terrace has views towards the mountains and the sea so in the summer evenings you can watch the beautiful sunsets while sipping sangria looking over towards the glimmering lights of Alicante. There is also table and chairs for alfresco dining at the front of the house in the small garden area.

I live and work in Staffordshire, England with my partner. We visit the house about 4 times a year and it has become our home from home.We enjoy it all year round as it has something to offer in Summer and Winter alike.
Owner purchased this House in 2004
Why Owner chose Santa Pola
The property was bought off plan in 2004 and we moved in in 2006. I chose the area because of its close proximity to the airport and the fabulous Carabassi Beach.The walks around the nature reserve and costal roads make it a great place to visit out of season when it's not so hot. Cycling is also very popular. The short drive into Santa Pola along the coast road is very picturesque.Santa Pola has a lovely harbour where you can watch the fishing boats come in with their daily catch or stroll on the lovely white sandy beaches the town itself still retains its Spanish vibe.You can also take a boat to 'Tabarca Island' which lies about 9Km East South East of Santa Pola Harbour is now a protected Marine Reserve but also has a history of refuge for Barbury Pirates in the late 18th century.
Pool / Spa
Great weather and a relaxing holiday.
A very well kept house and has all facilities as stated. Is in a quiet area and 2 minutes to the well maintained shared swimming pool. 20 minutes walk to the beach or 10 minutes on the bus.
So happy you enjoyed your stay in my property.
Thanks for your positive review.😎
The property was very well maintained and clean. Also well equiped.
The property is in a good location and good for buses, shops and restaurants. The town house is very clean and well maintained. Also the property manager Phyllis is on hand to help with any enquiries. The area is nice and peaceful although near all amenities. The shared pool is lovely, clean and well maintained. Also a life guard attends.

Amazing break in gran Alicant
Everything was perfect, just as I expected, from pick at the airport by the lovely Phyllis ( accommodation manager) to the lovely pool just a stones throw away. Restaurants and supermarkets within walking distance. Hope to return next year
Thank you for your review.
Very welcome to return.
We only stayed for 6 nights but wish we had booked for longer. The place was close to everything that you would want. Tthe pool was the best part as the kids spent most of their holiday swimming and being across the road was good. The accommodation was well equipped and very clean. The wifi was an extra bonus and there were English tv channels not that we watched much tv. We enjoyed sitting out on the terrace and just relaxing. I would recommend staying here and will definitely be returning.
Thanks for your review of my property. So happy to hear you had an enjoyable time!
A gem of a find in Gran Alacant !!
For purely selfish reasons I wasn’t going to write this review! (Wanted to keep this find to myself!) but that would be unfair on Janice and her house which is a gem of a find in Gran Alacant. We have visited the area on and off for around 20 years now and have to say this is the best equipped, cleanest and well maintained accommodation we have ever stayed at in this area. With air con in the bedrooms and living area made for a pleasant retreat from the warm sunny days they have here.
The house is on 3 levels with living area, toilet/shower and kitchen on the ground floor. Here you also have UK TV channels and WiFi throughout which was excellent for us, as our son is currently in New Zealand and allowed us to Skype him, so thumbs up for this :0). Upstairs are the two bedrooms (with air con) and bathroom (bath/shower) and on the next floor is the roof terrace. Outside at the front there is also a nice patio area where we had breakfast every morning and just watched the world go by !
The house is a 5 minute walk (10 minute stroll!) to the nearest shop and not much further to eateries and the local train/bus stops (N.B. The train isn’t a train per se’ it’s essentially a road vehicle in the shape of a train with a couple of carriages which stop at various points around Gran Alacant). We hired a car and parking was relatively easy, although was getting busier by the time we were due to leave. With the house you also get access to the communal pool which is literally across the road and down a few steps and was fantastic. A very large clean area with toilets! And life guard. While you can take your own deck chairs etc along to the area, it was however only 1euro 50 to hire a bed for the day ! Like all pools in this area (probably all over Spain) there are strict rules what you can and cannot take into the area (eating, alcohol and large inflatable’s are a no, no). But as the house is a short walk away you can go back and forth without too many problems.
All in all an excellent find and definitely somewhere we will return to. We have no problems in certainly recommending this accommodation to others. Look forward to our next stay :0)
The Costa Blanca is famous for its warm climate, beautiful white sandy beaches and sparkling blue sea.
Both Gran Alacant and Arenales del Sol beaches have been recognised as having high standards of cleanliness and facilities by being awarded the Blue Flag status. Life saving and first aid equipment and staff are on duty throughout the Summer season.
Alicante airport is only 10 minutes drive from the house and approximately 20 euros by taxi. The bus service around Gran Alacant is very good and most stops have timetables. It's also very reasonably priced to travel. In high season there is a road train that picks up and drops off up and down the hill around Gran Alacant. It also travels the coast road to Santa Pola and back.
Alicante is 15 kilometres North and Santa Pola is approximately 5 kilometres south from Gran Alacant.
The nearest supermarket is UNIDE, which is only 5 minutes walk selling the usual everyday provisions plus fresh meat and fish. Every Thursday there is an outdoor market in Gran Alacant selling a selection of items from Rugs,Plants to Fresh Fruit and vegetables. There is a larger Shopping Centre with a wide range of shops supermarkets bars and restaurants as you enter Gran Alacant from the airport road. Nightlife is low key but there are some bars and restaurants catering for a selaction of tastes eg. Italian, Indian, Chinese and of course Tapas, or traditional Fish and Chips.There is a Nature Reserve at the bottom of the hill close to the beach surrounding Gran Alacan. There are clearly marked trails for walkers or cyclists. This area is of a particular interest to Bird Watchers as there are many different species observed all year round.Carabassi Beach (Blue Flag Awarded) is only 15 minutes walk away or 5 minutes drive.It has a large car park and recently built wooden boardwalks straight onto the beach. It boasts of 9 kilometres of white sand, therfore its never overcrowded there are beach bars in high season and sunbed and parasol hire.
