The neighborhood is very quiet and varied, there are families, young couples, older people... who have been living there for years and they are really friendly.

The apartment lies in a popular neigbourhood just at the foot of the Monte Benacantil. It is a really quiet neighbourhood, not old and beautiful but one where people live and where you are unlikely to encounter many other tourists, so great for an authentic Spanish experience. There is a metro/tramway station next door (MARQ-CASTILLO) and the tram will take you along the coast passing all beaches. We recommend the San Juan beach, a strech of two kilometres of beach, 15 minutes by tram. There is also a bus stop for the airport next to the tramway station, so the apartment is very well located if you don't have a car. The apartment itself is nice, nothing fancy but it has a nice feel to it and it has a great kitchen. Only drawback if you are sensitive to it is the busy road that passes just in front of the house, which makes sitting on the otherwise great balcony not a very quiet affair. We didn't meet the owners, just their daughter to hand over the keys, but the communication by e-mail was quite smooth and Lola always reacted immediately, so no problems there. All in all a very pleasant experience in a really nice city, quite apart from the maddening tourist mobs of Benidorm and the like.
Wir buchten die Unterkunft Mitte Mai, und waren von Anfang an sehr zufrieden.
Lola begrüßte uns sehr freundlich und schenkte uns zu Beginn einen Sack mit Früchten der Sasion. In der Ferienwohung angekommen, führte sie uns rum und zeigte uns die gesamte Wohnung. Außerdem nahm Lola sich die Zeit und erklärte uns die beliebtesten Reiseziele sowie die Verbindungen der öffentlichen Vekehrsmittel von Alicante. Die Wohnung war sehr sauber und grundlegende Dinge wie Badetücher,Klopapier und Haushaltsgeräte waren vorhanden.
Die Wohnung würden wir nochmals buchen und können diese weiterempfehlen.
Todo genial. Jose y Lola muy amables. Desayunamos con zumo todas las mañanas. Gracias por las naranjas. Bonito detalle!
Vastasi viesteihin hyvissä ajoin. Ei päässyt henk-koht paikalle mutta ilmoitti siitä etukäteen.
We stayed in Lola's apartment for the second time and again we enjoyed it very much. It's a really nice house in a lively neighbourhood. Lola and José are very friendly people who made us feel very welcome.
