Description


***

This property is registered as a 'rental' with Valencian Tourist Board.
This is a legal requirement for all rental properties in the region and a stipulation of many travel insurance policies should you make a claim. Legal properties are required to display their registration number in all advertising.



DETAILED DESCRIPTION:

Built to a high standard (locally known as 'Quara' build) and with all modern conveniences, this quality, penthouse apartment is a new listing to the rental market.
The property ~effectively 'first floor'~ faces south with a view across grassland and almond trees, extending to distant views of the sea.
This unusually peaceful and private aspect offers tranquility and calm as you relax on either the lower terrace or upstairs on the spacious roof terrace.

The property is fully equipped with brand new items and furnishings and includes a microwave/grill, toaster, kettle, cafetiere, coffee maker, washing machine and dishwasher. There is even a kitchen sink, incase you think you might need one. The roof terrace has a large, built-in brick barbecue.
UK TV is included as is unlimited, free use of reliable Wi-fi. (The mast is just across the field.) Air con/heating is installed for your further comfort.
Both bedrooms have ceiling fans.

The private, resident's pool is less than a minutes walk away and has a separate shallow children's pool (0.5m). Unlike most communal pools, it is not overlooked. Only 36 properties have gated access, via key. The pool is not supervised by lifeguards. Children must not be left unattended.
Adjacent to the pool is a modest children's playground.



THE AREA:

Several internationally​ acknowledged golf courses are in the immediate vicinity including Villamartin itself. Other popular courses include Las Ramblas, Campoamar and La Finca. (Links will be sent on request.)

Having these golf courses in close proximity has helped to ensure an excellent entertainment and facilities infrastructure and so there is plenty to do for golfers and non-golfers alike.

Water~sport parks are 15/20 minutes away by car, at Torrevieja, Aquopolis and Aquapark Flamingo (Links will be sent on request.)

The famous Villamartin Plaza is a short stroll along quiet roads or off-road footpaths and is a two-tier medley of restaurants and bars, representing at least six countries. There is also a supermarket and various other retail outlets including a hairdresser, chip shop, dentist, doctors and estate agents. (Link on request.)
Live entertainment is sometimes performed from the podium in the middle of the square.

Local beaches are 'blue flag' status, depicting a high standard of water quality and safety.

The nearby La Zenia Boulevard has in excess of 150 shops and there are numerous restaurants to choose from, as a pleasant alternative to eating out at the Plaza. (Link on request.)
Live entertainment is also often performed here.
Younger children are well catered for on the top floor with their very own, bespoke 'Boulevard.'
Fitness fanatics can sweat as much as they like at the ever popular fitness centre.
Underground parking is free and there is lots of it.
This impressive, newly opened boulevard is open until late, including off-season e.g. 2200hrs on a sunday.
Importantly, by day or night, the atmosphere is happy, calm and safe which reflects the area generally.
Owners Tip: don't forget where you parked; the concrete support pillars are colour, letter and number coded to assist you. Take a photo!

No problem!
You will receive a warm welcome and discover an invaluable source on the best places to go, how to get there etc. Local management is contactable throughout your stay should any issue arise.


*subject to availability



WHY THIS PROPERTY?

This particular property is unusual in that its immediate surrounds has a calm, luxurious air about it and yet, the bustle and buzz of the Plaza is a short, relaxing stroll away, either by road or peaceful off-road footpaths. Driving there is a question of 'up to the top of the road, turn left and left again: park up!'
It's 2 minutes for slow drivers.

For those without a car, a bus network leaves from the bus stop by the Plaza and will take you to the beaches, La Zenia Boulevard, golf courses and other popular hotspots. Taxis are available from the same location.

The south~facing view from both the lower and roof terrace is unusually peaceful and private for an urbanisation, courtesy of rustic grassland and almond trees directly opposite the property and with views towards the sea.
During your stay here, you will appreciate not being overlooked by properties opposite, which adds to the exclusive quality of this first floor penthouse apartment and, indeed, this particular area. It is acknowledged as the 'quality' side of Villamartin.
On the other side of the property, your privacy is rather beautifully shielded by a double, 'V'-shaped palm tree (called Harvey.)



UNIQUE BENEFITS:

Guests have UK TV with all main terrestrial channels and including Film 4, More 4, E4, History, Discovery and two Eurosport channels. Unlimited use of a personal Wi-Fi facility -as opposed to a community~shared service- helps ensure a strong to excellent signal. (Please be aware there are more power/Wi-Fi outages in Spain than UK; infrequent nonetheless.)
Air con/heating is available via a sophisticated 'Digital Inverter' type unit.
All equipment and furnishings are new from 2016/17
This property has a full~sized dishwasher to ensure a well deserved, lazy holiday!



IMPORTANT NOTE:
Your safety and that of your family

Along with quality of accommodation and various attention to detail, the issue of your 'well-being' is of paramount importance to this owner. Discreet security measures offer additional reassurance and help protect your valuables, including while you are out and about. Smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, a fire extinguisher and a fire blanket are all in situ to help ensure your safety and give you the reassurance you need and should expect while holidaying abroad. Guests have complimentary use of a safe. Subtle night lighting is available for children should they wake in the night...
.....We've thought of it... you need do nothing but relax!

NB
Please note, this is a 2 bed, 2 bath property (bathroom and ensuite shower room) which is designed and furnished to accommodate the usual 4 guests.

"Superb apartment."

Heather J writes:
5 star *****


Excellent apartment in a quiet location - views from roof terrace are great over open land to the sea. Very short stroll to the pool - residents were using it the first time we went but welcomed us and we had a great chat. The apartment had everything needed for our holiday and was well equipped and clean. (Only thing missing would be a full length mirror in the bedrooms, not a fan of using a hairdryer at the bathroom sink - although this was a minor point)

The nearby Villamartin Plaza had lots of restaurants and bars to try. The fish and chip shop Quesada was a particular favourite - always very busy but the food cooked fresh and worth the wait!

La Zenia Boulevard shopping centre worth a visit if only to spend ages walking round the huge supermarket. A car would be handy to do a bigger shop but a taxi back suited our needs.

Would definitely stay again.

"Great Stay."

David Stevens writes:
5 star *****

My wife and I just stayed for the second time in this Villamartin apartment between 24th July and 24th August 2018. Apartment is very well appointed and is in a great location with a south-facing, open outlook over fields. Very quiet and peaceful yet just a few minutes walk takes you to local bars and restaurants. Plenty supermarkets just a short drive away.

It has access to a beautiful pool area. Very nicely maintained and kept beautifully clean.

The owner is extremely helpful and accommodating and can always be contacted. We also found the local Property Management Company to be extremely pleasant and helpful.

"Amazing and value for money."

Tracey G writes:
5 star *****

I have just returned from a ten day holiday and can’t wait to return. Peters apartment is superb and has everything you can expect to make your stay that bit more enjoyable. It is tastefully decorated and has all the necessary equipment for a home from home stay. The beds are so comfortable and there is ample space for clothes.
The roof terrace has lovely views and is very peaceful and secluded, benefiting from all day sun. It has a large built in bbq which we found really useful. It is situated on a lovely street where we met some very friendly neighbours and is only a short stroll to the Villamartin Plaza.

The pool is less than a minutes walk on the same street and is very private and peaceful. I was apprehensive as I have stayed in other communities around Villamartin where there has been so many rules and regulations but I’m pleased to say this was totally different. We hired a car and there was ample parking on the street.

From the moment I booked Peter has been so helpful, sending us directions and recommendations for nearby attractions and restaurants. His attention to detail has to be admired and he is so accommodating and friendly. I received the email for my breakage deposit to be refunded before I even reached Alicante airport. I will definitely stay here again we all had an amazing time thank you Peter for making our stay so perfect.
