Hi, my name is Gail, and I'm still living in England - today it's actually sunny!  Our plans to spend a lot of time in Quesada, in our retirement, have gone slightly wrong - sounds familiar!  Bought a house in Dona Pepa, nearly four years ago but father has ended up with dementia, so only able to pop there now and then on my own.  

Always felt safe there, but confidence shattered when house tenants went into house in April and within two weeks they were burgled!

Have been in other forum, but this one seems so much better, and really interesting.  Looking forward to being a member

It would be nice to hear some views about Quesada - haven't had a chance to get to know all the places to go etc yet


is where the heart is!

I'm just down the road nearer Guardamar from you. Bobaol on here has bought in that area, I understand & there's others I'm sure, though I don't believe anyone has posted in a while.

When you say you've been in other forum (you aren't allowed to say which one ) are you talking about the one starting with Q or a T ? 

Hope you like being here with us.

I live in Dona Pepa, haven’t heard of any houses being broken into lately, but i guess it happens everywhere, must say I feel safe here, but I always make sure security gates on the doors are locked when I’m in so no one could get in if they tried. Some ppl are opportunists and will watch houses to look out for ppl who are not so security conscious and try their luck on them. Have heard of things going on on our urbanisations, but dona pepa hasn’t been one of them.

Hi Sophie

Just type "Dona Pepa forum" into Google, it's at the top !

This should not come as a surprise to residents as we approach the summer season.

Approximately 3 weeks ago, we had a "H" and "?" sprayed on our community wall in blue paint, we checked with Euro Marina and Rojales Council and they could not offer advise, in the last 2 weeks there have been 4 break-ins around our community in Dona Pepa I and strange people walking outside of community at 4.00am in the morning.

It is doubtful that these people are throw-outs from Lo Maribu during the early hours of the morning

It is to the benefit of all to be watchful for these type of markings on walls and where sited remove them from your walls

To Morerosado - Well, one of those forums could start with a Q!!!

Great to receive some replies though.

When we bought the house in Quesada we did it as a "toe in water" job to see if we would like to live there.  Love the house, and the swimming pool is great for my disabled husband - communal but gradual walk in one.  Unfortunately, not there for long enough periods to really get into community life, but plenty of chance to practice languages as I think that there were about 8 different nationalities on the community!  Unfortunately, Spanish isn't one of those languages!  

To Sophie:  Do you enjoy living in Dona Pepa? 

I'm too nervous to drive in Spain - although I don't think twice about doing so in England.  When I came out last September I relied on public transport.  However, when I went out in April I was waiting by a bus stop for a very long time before someone whispered in my ear!  Are the buses going again yet?  The situation did wonders for my waist line since I walked everywhere - and when I got back home I was too tied to eat!  Is the bus service up and running again?

It's a shame about all the precautions to "burglar proof" homes.  A few of my neighbours, on the community, have bought guard dogs, as well as having safes; grilles and burglar alarms! 


is where the heart is!
