My 5 bed Holiday Apartment - South-East Spain

Post by admin » 03 Mar 2011, 09:51

Edit September 2015

Here is a link to our Holiday Lettings / Tripadvisor listing:
http://www.holidaylettings.co.uk/rental ... ama/189218

A discount is available if booked direct with me rather than through the above website.

The 5 bedroom apartment (sleeps up to 10 with 8 different beds) is available all year round. It would suit a large family, two families holidaying together or 6 to 8 golfers (and I can help with booking golf).

Edit Jan 2014:

I have a fairly private 5 bed apartment on a secure resort with swimming pools & activity area, near golf, excellent child-friendly beaches and stunning mountains in South-East Spain where temps are on average 10°C higher than central England. Low cost airlines fly to the area.

It's a 3 bed joined with the 2 bed next door so would suit 2 families staying together on holiday as there are 2 living rooms, 2 bathrooms and 2 kitchens.

I can offer a 20% discount, to the published public rates, for fiso members - for an apartment that will sleep up to 10 (1 superking bed, 1 double bed and 6 single beds).

In September 2013 the apartment was increased from 3 bedrooms to 5 bedrooms. The outside terrace is also extended now to 22 paces by 15.

If interested or would like further info send me a PM or email.

Photos - May/July 2013

All these 5 photos show the same shot of our terrace but all from different angles to help demonstrate the large outside space you'll enjoy:

Sure. People known to a fiso member would be fine.

Anyone interested between now and early April do let me know - special late discount price available to attract someone.

few quick questions:

What day of the week does the week rental start?
Do you rent for weekends?
What is the closest airport and how far a drive is the apartment from there?

Thanks

And that member was me............... :D

So after a week in Spain thought I would write a few comments on Admin's place in case anyone is thinking of renting it out.

It's situated in the South-East of Spain about an hour's drive from Alicante airport (Murcia is even closer). The apartment itself is lovely - located within a golf resort. If anyone is looking for a quiet break, then I recommend this place. The resort is not very populated (by buildings or people) and is very peaceful away from any main roads. There are currently 2 swimming pools and sunbathing areas on site, with the nearest beach being about a 20 minute drive away.

The apartment is fully furnished and has air-conditioning in all of the rooms. There's also a washing machine so you don't need to worry about taking one or two week's worth of clean clothes. It's self-catering and there is a great gas BBQ where we cooked on a couple of the evenings but the nearest town is only about 20 minutes away so there are plenty of places to eat out there as well.

Unlike some of the Canary islands or the Costa Del Sol, there did not seem to be an abundance of English people about - in fact, on the beach we visited a couple of times, we only heard English being spoken once - the rest of the time was Spanish and a little Dutch. However there were a number of people at the golf resort who were English but I only realised this as I saw people buying English newspapers from across the road at the supermarket.

As Admin has lived in the apartment previously there were loads of things in there that helped make the holiday more enjoyable, such as a big cool box that we loaded with food and drinks to take to the beach; a huge book collection, so no need to take any abroad and digital TV so I could watch the Community Shield without having to find a local bar!

The weather was great (mid 30s) and we were able to sunbathe until 8pm on most evenings as it was still fairly hot. The best part was that there was a fantastic breeze that ran through the complex so it kept us cool and allowed us to spend a bit more time in the sun without "melting". There is a supermarket, restaurant and bar on site but we preferred to get out of the resort and explore the little towns around. As the complex is so close to the sea, there are plenty of restaurants serving excellent fish, seafood and paella - however they do cater for non-fish liking people as well and we saw plenty of restaurants with steak, chicken, pasta, pizza etc.

Even though it was just Mrs Stuboy and myself, everywhere we went seemed to be kid friendly and there were a number of families staying in the complex.

I'd highly recommend the apartment and location - the other nice touch is Admin supplies you with a 15 page booklet with suggestions and recommendations and instructions on where everything is in the apartment. With that we were able to drive from the airport, find places to eat, beaches to visit etc.

Now hopefully this recommendation will get me a reduction in price for next year :lol:

Cheers stuboy and glad you enjoyed the holiday. The owners where you stayed are pretty much Spanish, English/Irish and Scandinavian (mainly Norwegian) in fairly equal proportions so a good mix of nationalities rather than just British. I'm sure I can stretch to a further discount for your next booking.

For anyone interested there is availability for this October half-term and Easter next year. PM me for more details on the large apartment. Rental discounts still available for fiso members.

A few things to update about the apartment:

1. Wireless internet (2mb) is now installed in the apartment.
2. A British family have opened another bar/restaurant on the resort to compete with the Spanish owned one. They have large TV screens with English Premier League football shown - I may well go down there this afternoon to watch the Liv v MU match today (although going swimming in the sea is pretty tempting too).
3. There is an outdoor 'activity area' set up for the free exclusive use of people staying on our section of the resort which includes ping pong tables, badminton net, gym/fitness equipment and boules area along with a wooden clubhouse (with wifi) where the bats/balls/other games etc are stored. There already is a children's play area near our apartment block.

Rental prices will be going up for 2012 but I will still offer a 30% discount to fiso members.

Hi All

I only got home last night, and as someone that loves his golf i can highly recommend admin's apartment and its location. For golf just alone the course is very challenging and superb value for a very new course.

the apartment is a very comfortable size, with a balcony that’s very spacious, & gets the sun from the time it arises till 6pm and that’s in October. the view and noise at night-times have the same feeling "HEAVEN" & not too bad in the very early hours of the morning either.

i only had time to visit the pool once and its the ideal place to sit and soak up the sun then cool down with a quick dip, in a clean pool. in fact the whole resort is kept clean and tidy by the dedicated staff on the resort.

i also got the chance to visit the local port which has a few beaches (little coves, not over crowded) and they are spotless. the sea is warm, and relaxing and that’s coming from someone that can never remember going further than just a paddle in the past 40 odd years.

in the port there are many shops (especially the supa dupa ice cream shop) a must if you like different flavours, and if your sitting outside one of the many restaurants at the right time in the evening you might get to see a wonderful sight. sitting there having a cig between starters and main course the moon appeared in slow motion (well it felt like slow motion) above the mountains in the distance.

They say to leave the best bit till last so scroll down




THE BEST THING IF YOU DECIDE TO VISIT YOU CAN HAVE YOUR VERY OWN CHAUFFER, OK YOU NEED TO RENT THE CAR OF YOUR CHOICE, CONTRIBUTE TO THE FUEL AND FIND A LITTLE SPACE IN THE APARTMENT FOR YOUR DRIVER ………… (little old me and my golf clubs) which equals the best deal at super value for a great break
YOU CAN’T HELP A MAN FOR TRYING, I WILL BE RE-VISITING 1 DAY I HOPE :lol:

'Bumped' for those looking to book later this year (e.g. Easter, Summer). Discounted prices vary from £245 to £345 per week (low to high season) - the apartment is advertised elsewhere at £375 to £530 per week so this is a genuine discount. See comments above from those that have stayed there already. As per above, it is a 3 bedroom apartment with huge terrace on an exclusive location and you can have a mixture of superking or single beds.

If interested send me a PM (Private Message) or email or post here.

As I'm out here at the moment (26 degrees thank you very much :D ) I've taken a few new photos of FISO's Spanish Office :roll: and uploaded them on to the 1st post on this topic.

One fiso member has already booked it a couple weeks this Summer but there is availability if anyone else is interested.

discount, to published public rates, to fiso members.

Re: My 5 bed Holiday Apartment - South-East Spain

Post by admin » 09 Jan 2014, 10:36

In September 2013 the apartment was increased from 3 bedrooms to 5 bedrooms (bought the 2 bed apartment next door and knocked-through). Can now sleep up to 10. The outside terrace is also extended now to 22 paces on the front (see photo below) and 15 paces on the side. As it's a 3 bed joined with the 2 bed next door it would suit 2 families staying together on holiday as there are also 2 living rooms, 2 bathrooms and 2 kitchens.

It's possible that a 5 seater car can also be made available at a reasonable rate too. (I haven't bought it yet but will probably do so in March/April and make sure others can be added to the insurance)

I can offer a 20% discount for fiso members to the published public rates for the apartment.

Here is a link to our Holiday Lettings / Tripadvisor listing:
http://www.holidaylettings.co.uk/rental ... ama/189218
which also has some extra photos.

A discount is available if booked direct with me rather than through the above website. The apartment does get booked up during the school summer holidays.

The 5 bedroom apartment (sleeps up to 10 with 8 different beds) is available all year round.

It would suit a large family, two families holidaying together or a group of 6 to 8 golfers (and I can help with booking golf).
