This duplex apartment is in a great location, The complex is quiet and secure with lovely gardens and a great pool area, very quiet and private, with nice warm water. Maureen & John were the perfect hosts, they made regular contact prior to our arrival and even met us when we arrived to bring us to the duplex, giving us a run down of the area on the way, which was really very helpful. The welcome pack of water, milk, juice and a bottle of Cava provided on our arrival and was a lovely touch & much appreciated.
The apartment has everything you need for your holiday. It was nice to have breakfast upstairs on the terrace or lunch downstairs in its own private garden. The duplex is just a few minutes walk to the shops, local bars, restaurants and gorgeous vast sandy beaches. It was also nice to wander through the lemon and lime groves which are nearby when out for a morning stroll or while heading down for morning coffee and the newspaper. There is a fabulous Italian restaurant two minutes down the road from the duplex, which is really worth a visit.
It is a short bus ride to the main town of Denia, the bus stop is five minutes walk and buses are frequent and cheap. We really enjoyed our holiday in La Giralda and would highly recommend Maureen and John's duplex. Thank you both for making us feel so welcome & for being the perfect, hospitable & helpful hosts..
From making the initial booking Maureen and John were there to assist with all my queries, and were there to meet and greet us on arrival providing an insight to the area which was completely new to us. The accommodation provided the perfect base and Maureen and John had thought of everything to ensure all our needs were catered for, down to milk, a bottle of Cava, and even boxes of tissues. There was nothing we felt was missing. The beach and several good eateries are within easy walking distance of La Giralda and even Dénia port could be accessed on foot although the bus route is nearby, however we preferred the convenience of the hire car we collected from Alicante airport. The area provided huge contrast, the beautiful beaches, Montgo Mountain, the busy coastal town of Javea, the upmarket resort of Moraira, the market at Jesús Pobre, but we loved Playa de las Marinos and the centre of Dénia both offering contrast in themselves. We were impressed by how friendly everybody was despite our embarrassing lack of the Spanish language. We ate out most evenings and did not have one meal when we felt disappointed......neither was eating out exorbitant, and that was including wine. We will most definitely go back there is still so much we would like to see and do, and can’t think we could find a better base to explore northern Costa Blanca than from La Giralda. Thanks to Maureen and John for helping to make this holiday so special....we have travelled far and wide but this comes up with some of the best.
Excellent accommodation, cleanliness 5 stars. We were very impressed with the duplex, very comfortable and everything you could possibly need for your stay was provided. We found a couple of very good restaurants within a few minutes walk, and as we love Deveses beach (which is only a 10 minute drive) was a superb location for us, Also the local beach is just 7 minutes walk away from the Duplex. We found the owners Maureen and John very helpful and were surprised by a welcome pack (which came in handy as we arrived on a Sunday) of water/juice/milk and complimentary tea/coffee /condiments. The bottle of bubbly was also a very welcome gift. Would not hesitate to recommend and we look forward to our next stay at La Giralda. Thanks Maureen and John we really enjoyed our stay.
Having never booked through trip advisor before we were unsure how this family holiday would pan out but we needn’t have worried.
Maureen and John, the owners of the duplex, would instantly text back any answers to the numerous questions we had during the booking process including info and numbers for local taxis which was great so I could pre book before hand.
On arrival we were greeted by Maureen and John who then showed us around the duplex and grounds explaining any info we might need.
Inside the duplex was very well presented and spotlessly clean with various drinks for us including bubbly in the fridge which was lovely.
We really appreciated the split level of this holiday home as with 2 kids you could lose yourself on another level to escape iPads or Tv for a bit.
The balcony on the first level was a favourite as it looks out over at the mountains while you can enjoy a cheeky G n T!
We also appreciated the 2 bathrooms which makes life easier.
The grounds of this small complex are via a keyed entry so it felt safe with the kids. The gardens were immaculately kept and the swimming pool was also very clean and well maintained, Quite often we were the only ones using it.
Location wise it’s about a 10 minute walk to the small supermarket, bakery, restaurants, beach and bus stop. The bus can take you to Denia for €1.50
each and takes about 15 minutes and is very painless.
Denia is a great place to visit with hundreds of restaurants, we didn’t have a bad meal anywhere.
We also enjoyed the Moore’s and Christians Fiesta where the whole town celebrates for a week in August.
Once back at the duplex at night it’s a a lot quieter
and there is no problem with getting a good sleep as it really is silent. The fans and air con work great also.
On the one day we had some heavy rain out of the blue we made the most of the board games that are stashed away in one of the drawers which really helped keeping the kids amused and delayed the screen time.
We thoroughly enjoyed this holiday and it exceeded our expectations. Maureen and John are a lovely couple and seem to really care about you having a great holiday.
Thank you both and hopefully we will come and stay. again some time!
Clean, tidy Duplex with air / con and ceiling fans (a must), great location close to Denia, fabulous swimming pool area & close to the sandy Les Marinas beach. John & Maureen (the owners) were a pleasure to deal with
What a lovely couple John and Maureen are, they met us with the key although it was after 9pm and John very kindly helped us in with the cases etc Maureen had put in a welcome pack fresh milk, tea, coffee etc and even a bottle of bubbly they made sure we had everything we needed before leaving. The complex is really well cared for and a lovely pool, plenty of secure parking the duplex is surprisingly spacious, immaculately clean and with its own little private garden where (if out) the sun shines all afternoon, Maureen and John have supplied sunloungers and table and chairs both in the garden and the sun terrace that leads off the second bedroom. The duplex overlooks farmland and orange groves to the rear, there is a small park area just outside the complex with seats and a few play things for the children, approximately 8minutes stroll and you are on a lovely sandy beach with plenty of local bars and shops, a walk down early every morning is a must for a daily paper and fresh croissants. Should you want to go into Denia town centre the bus stop is 5minues away so a car isn’t necessary. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it.
