About Susan Alba
We live in Spain and own and manage Casita de Alba, Casa Almareka and Casa Susana. We do all our own maintenance and cleaning to ensure our villas are in perfect condition and spotlessly clean for our guests. I was a City Business woman until I found Casita de Alba in Jesus Pobre and from that day I knew I wanted to live there. I put my heart and soul into reforming the villa and made it into a luxurious, comfortable, welcoming home. We have had some wonderful times with many clients who come regularly over the years and who have enjoyed our properties.
Susan Alba purchased this Villa in 1987
Why Susan Alba chose Dénia
When I first saw Casa Almareka I knew I wanted to buy it 1 day, but the owners did not want to sell and I could not afford it so I said to the owner, please give me first refusal if you ever want to sell. From that moment I kept saving. 1 day I had a phone call from the owner saying they had to return to the UK and was I still interested.I jumped for joy and rushed to the bank to ask for a bridging loan (you could in those days!) All went well and in July 1987 the keys were in my hands. It was a wonderful feeling and I set about restoring, changing, updating and had the time of my life. My 1st clients loved there stay in Casa Almareka and I have continued to upgrade and modernise without changing the character of this truly charming villa. I also have Casita de Alba & both are great.
What makes this Villa unique
Whenever we get the chance we stay at Casa Almareka because by staying there we see what clients see. We can then adjust, decorate,install, remove anything & everything & do all we can to improve the villa each year. It is central to both Javea & Denia & also Alicante & Valencia and is situated in a lovely location that is peaceful & tranquil yet only minutes away from Golf, beaches, shops, restaurants, in fact everything you could wish for. Ideal for summer holidays with air conditioning & a glorious pool & warm & cosy for winter holidays with the log burner and central heating.

Casa Almareka - a beautiful place!
We thoroughly enjoyed our two weeks staying at Casa Almareka. We were welcomed in person by Susan and Nick, who had put together a good selection of food, drink and condiments to get us started - no need to make an immediate trip to the supermarket to stock up.
The villa is well appointed, clean and comfortable with a lovely little roof terrace to enjoy a 'sundowner' or two. The garden and pool are very pleasant and secluded from the other properties in the surrounding area.
It is a few minutes' walk into Jesus Pobre, which has some good bars / restaurants and a very nice Sunday market. There is no footpath for part of the way and at some times of day the traffic can get a bit busy, so care is necessary and a torch at night. The other thing to be prepared for at night is mosquitos, so stock up on 'DEET'!
The area around Jesus Pobre (Gata, Denia, Xabia and La Xara are the nearest towns) is lovely and the view from the villa of the 'Montgo' is stunning.
In summary - a beautiful villa in a beautiful area with welcoming and helpful hosts. Highly recommended.
Thank you both for writing such an informative and complimentary review.It is such a pleasure dealing with guests who appreciate the villa, Jesus Pobre and the service we offer.
The roof terrace is always enjoyed because of the lovely views and the gardens and the pool are a big hit so great to hear you enjoyed everything so much.
With the incredible heat we experienced this year mosquitoes will always come to visit but as you say, come prepared with your repellents and and you should be OK as you were. Thank you once again and we look forward to welcoming you back again.
Fantastically well equipped Villa. Beautiful pool and grounds.
Location was perfect for us a short distance from Javea and Denia in the quiet village of Jesus Pobre. Plenty of great restaurants within 5 minutes. A large supermarket 10 minutes away too.
Air conditioning throughout the villa and a lovely terrace round the large pool. Nice BBQ which we used and eat on the rooftop terrace. Nice shaded parking too.
Lovely, lovely house in beautiful private gardens - everything we needed for a relaxing holiday!
Everything at Casa Almareka was just as we'd hoped for and exactly as described. The gardens and pool in particular are lovely and the house had everything we could possibly need. It was like a home from home. We also really enjoyed the area and tried out several local beaches. Our favourite by far was Playa Grandella but we would recommend arriving early to get a good spot and a place to park! It's pebbley so beach shoes are a must too. Sue and Nick were so friendly and helpful - there was an issue with the WiFi during our stay which they resolved immediately, even changing provider because they weren't happy that the existing company didn't respond quickly enough so they could get it sorted for us. Our teenagers were very impressed! The main reason we didn't give the villa 5/5 was something out of Sue and Nick's control...the mosquitos! They have put every measure possible in place to try and minimise the impact and it is a Spanish-wide issue in the heat of summer but the mosquitos obviously liked the outside space as much as we did and feasted on us whenever possible. They did not succeed in spoiling our holiday but it would good to go prepared!
Thank you so much for your lovely complimentary review.We are really pleased you enjoyed your holiday. We do try to do everything we possibly can to make sure our guests are given a perfect service and a beautiful villa in which to stay and it is very satisfying when our guests enjoy their holidays and appreciate the pool, gardens, roof terrace and the home from home feel.
Our fifth stay in this lovely villa. It has a wonderful flood lit pool, lovely garden and amazing views. Well equipped and comfortable. Short walk to local village where you can enjoy the typical Spanish atmosphere and a visit to the Sunday market is a must. Only a short drive to Denia & Javea. The owners Susan & Nick are brilliant, so thoughtful of their guests needs and so very welcoming.
We had a wonderful 2 week stay , the villa is well equipped and has everything you need.The views are amazing and the area is so peaceful , the village is very near and has a few good restaurants, it's a 10 minute drive to javea with a good beach and plenty of restaurants .We spent a lot of time at the villa the pool is a great size and the garden is very nice several areas to dine outside especially the roof terrace.I would definitely return to this villa no hesitation, also Susan and Nick were very helpful and accommodating, the best villa I have ever stayed in.

Best Villa we have stayed in.
After almost 40 years of holidays in Spain in April/May 2018 we rented a villa from Susan in the Village of Jesus Pobre near Javea. In all those years we have never rented a villa that was so well furnished & comfortable!
From the first moment we had the feeling of coming into a lovely home.
The living room was very cosy and the bed- and sleepings rooms were fantastic.
The kitchen was very well equipped and was wonderful for us as we like to cook our own food.
The garden was a like paradise with a beautiful swimming pool.
The welcome when we arrived was very good and we discovered ,fruit, groceries, wine, butter bread etc.
Next year we will be returning to this fantastic villa and owners Susan & Nick !

What a wonderful review. We cannot thank you enough for your kind words. It is great to know that you enjoyed the villa and found it like a home for your holiday.
The garden is something we strive to make better each year and it is great to know our guests enjoy it as much as we do.
We love guests who return to the villa and we will not hesitate to make you welcome on your next visit.
Javea is a beautiful coastal resort that offers a glorious expanse of golden sand on the Arenal Beach and a restaurant for every taste & pocket. There are water sports, sand sculptures, a collection of shops and only a short 7km drive away. The long stretches of golden beach that can be found in Denia are truly stunning and there is much to see at the bustling marina & port.
Alicante and Valencia Airports are approximately 1 hour drive away.
The village of Jesus Pobre is only a short walk away. Javea and Denia are a 7km drive. Moraira is about 20 minutes away and more beaches and shops can be found at Calpe and Altea or the Theme Park, Terra Mitica at Benidorm is only 40 minutes away.
The quaint village of Jesus Pobre has a bakers for that wonderful fresh baked bread each morning and also a couple of small supermarkets which tend to be located in the homes of the owners who run them. Reminiscent of our local corner shops. The Bank, hairdressers, supermarkets, beautician, bars & restaurants are virtually all in the main street. Sunday Artisan market with a meal at La Tasca should not be missed. Great Atmosphere.
