Had a wonderful week at this apartment, it has everything you need for a break on the Costa Blanca. The real beauty of it is that it's within walking distance of Benidorm and it's beautifully kept beaches, restaurants and bars, but far enough away so that you're not bothered by it's noise. There is an amazing view of the bay, the rock and a lovely little cove that's worth exploring, walk a few minutes down into Benidorm and there's truly something for everyone! Boat trips, day trips, hundreds of eateries and bars. A little further on and you get to the old town, with it's tappas bars, churches, lovely architecture and harbour. There is plenty of public transport although we chose to do a lot of walking, at a very lazy pace with lots of pit-stops
The appartment is very well stocked with everything you could need if you chose to eat in etc. The air-con came in very useful as it was very hot at the end of August!! There is also a pool if you want a dip closer to home.I found the whole booking experience very easy with Torrun the owner and his rep in Benidorm Jan, thanks to both of you, I only wish I were still there xx
Fantastic accomodation. Property is even nicer than the pictures and the views are spectacular. Owner, Torunn is extremely helpful and answered any queries extremely quickly. During our stay there was a heatwave and the air conditioning throughout was an added bonus. Many thanks to Jan also who met us with the keys. Lovely touch of welcome basket. Have been going to Benidorm for many years and stayed in various accomodation, apartments and hotels and this was by far the best ever. Absolutley loved it. There is a 5 to 10 min walk down the hill to the buzz, should you wish it and as it was so hot taxi 5 -6 euros back up the hill. Also the beach at the bottom is brilliant for snorkelling. Hopefully this is the first of many holidays at Torunns apartment. Thank you for such an amazing holiday. put quite simply this place is stunning. Also Meritas bar, 2 mins away served fab food and drink and thanks to Andy & Merita for their hospitality.
We stopped at the Villa Marina end of June to 8th July, 2016. Would definitely recommend this property. The views are fantastic from both balconies, you can hear the waves from here. Bliss! Jan was really helpful to us.
Didn't want to come home. Nice steady walk in to town and you can get taxi back for around 5 to 6 euros if you don't want to walk back up the hill. Just up the hill from apartment a lovey Spanish bar serving drinks and snacks owned by Andy and Marita. They are both English and a lovely couple and nice food. It is very quite there and lovely to sip a cool drink while taking in the sea view. I would also recommend going to Altea. The old town is so picturesque with the cobbled streets, market square, bars and restaurants and arts and craft shops. You can get on the number 10 bus for 1.5 euros. Well worth a visit. All in all a really lovey holiday and cant wait to come back.

An excellent place to stay if you want everything at your finger tips without all the hassle of being surrounded by noise and people. The apartment itself is superbly laid out and very comfortable with an excellent balcony overlooking a small bay.
I would definitely be using this accommodation again.
Had a fabulous month at the Villa Marina, even after looking at the pictures and reviews beforehand it was even better in reality! It was like a home from home, it was clean, spacious and including all home comforts such as tv wifi, all mod cons. The view.....you couldnt buy it! The balcony was furnished to high standards (even sunbeds) and an awning just in vase it was too hot. The pool that was on our level was like an infinity pool, overlooking the sea. The location of the apartment is very quiet yet only 10 minutes to Lavante Beach. There was a bus (the number 24) but in the whole month we were there we only caught it once and that was because we had shopping. Although on a slight hill, the walk is not enough to put you off going there and well worth the views! There is a little bar/cafe a few minutes away called 'Meritas', a small, intimate Spanish style cafe which serves lovely food with lovely owners. This experience staying in this apartment has put me off hotels and I tried to book this again for September but its fully booked and I'm not surprised! And a thank you to Babas who picked us up from the airport which was arranged via Torrun (the owner of the apartment).
Thanks Again for sharing your beautiful home, Jackie, Paul and family :)
