Apartment in Javea, Costa Blanca, Spain - Communal Pool, Opposite Beach, Easy Walk To Many Shops, Bars And Restaurants
About Andy Edwards
Andy manages bookings on behalf of the owner (and mother-in-law), Eileen, who purchased the apartment in 1989 and retired there in 1993. At the time, Eileen lived in Saudi Arabia, where her husband Alan was an engineer. They then decided to look for a retreat in Spain. First, after weeks of looking, they found Javea (Xabia), a modest sized village under the gaze of Montgo mountain and fronted by a beautiful bay - and then they found the apartment. Perfectly located right on the beachfront, in a great complex which offered them everything they could want. So, for 25 years the apartment has served as home to Eileen and as holiday destination for family and friends. Now back in the UK, the apartment is available for others to enjoy as much as Eileen has.

Lovely spacious apartment with great sea views.
Javea is a lovely area. The apartment has a good location between the port and the main beach. Good choice of restaurants nearby.
Great relaxing holiday ☀️️ 😃
Relaxing break in lovely Javea
Just back from our 3rd visit to this property. Its location is ideal, being about 40 yards from the sea and an easy walk both to the port and the beach. A very spacious apartment, well equipped, with a private roof terrace, and a lovely balcony for watching the world go by. The secure parking is a bonus. Plenty of restaurants within a 10 to 15 minute walk.
A bit dated, great location, though a bit noisy
Location is great, half way between the sandy beach and the port beach, directly opposite the beach club, La Siesta (which is very loud a weekends into the early hours of the night)
Also idea for eating out at night or taking a walk.
Apartment is a good size, nice and large, but a bit dated and tired.
One complaint, the Air Conditioning unit kept flooding the balconies if the water catch bottles were not emptied each day... this was a pain.
One suggestion, Their is a pool, but the lack of any sun-beds or chairs makes it less than usefull. Would be a nice idea to have some in the apartment for guests to use.
Beautiful spot in a beautiful place
We have stayed in Javea many times as my brother lives close by the pictures for this apartment do not really do it justice - the sea view was amazing - the apartment extremely spacious - beds comfortable and the communal pool nearby larger than the pictures suggest with sunbathing areas. We rented sun beds in a perfect spot across the road (Monto de bongo), chilled vibes etc which charged €10 per bed but provided drinks to the same value, so basically free - we love walking particularly past the very impressive houses to the arenal and also the apartment was perfectly located near the port with various lovely tapas bars etc - also we were there for the fiestas really not to be misssed the parades with processions of gladiator clad like men and woman a bit like game of thrones and so impressive the atmosphere was electric - lovely spot great holiday can't wait to go back
Jane, thanks for the lovely review. Glad you enjoyed the apartment and Javea. Great tip about the sunbeds, definitely worth knowing.
Our stay in Javea
This is the second stay in this apartment and we thoroughly enjoyed it again. The apartment is clean and comfortable and in a very convenient location with beautiful views across the sea. The whole area is very clean and the local people very friendly. We have already booked to go back next year to avoid disappointment. I totally recommend this apartment to anyone whether you want to having a relaxing holiday or to travel out and about.
Loved our 15 days in the apartment, met by Mari as soon as we arrived & our whole experience was pleasurable. Ideally located, especially for people watching, less than 10 minutes walk to the Port, with it's abundance of restaurants literally meters from the sea. We were very lucky as there was a festival (Christian & Moors) which spread over a number of days which provided great entertainment. 20 minutes walk in the opposite direction is the Arenal Beach area which also has numerous restaurants, again great for people watching & lovely food. The apartment is very spacious & most of all....has fantastic views over the Med. There is a parking space which is great as the parking can be quite stressful. Will definitely come again. Andy makes the whole booking experience very easy. I'm missing it already!!!
Beach is across the road from the apartment. This beach is mainly pebbles. There is a bar restaurant (seasonal) on the beach opposite, and during the summer a number of chiringuitos (temporary beach bars) pop up along the beachfront.
Javea's main Arenal beach is a 20/25 minute walk. This is a fabulous sandy beach, safe for children (there are lifeguards), and plenty of bars and restaurants for all ages. Watersports available (jet skis, pedal boat hire etc).

There are lots of interesting places in and around Javea and the Tourist Information Office (located on the seafront in the port area....about 500 metres from the apartment) is a great place to visit for advice on the where's and when's.
