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.
We stayed in Alicante for one week with our two young kids and have had a wonderful time. The appartement was very nice and clean. We felt right at home. Lola and José were waiting for us at the appartement on our arrival and said goodbye when we left.
We stayed for 1 month and were sorry to leave - we felt so at home! Lola and Jose were really welcoming and were helpful in answering any questions we had during our stay.
The flat is perfectly placed - 20 mins walk from the centre of town in a peaceful and quiet area. The flat is quiet both during the day and at night - much better than some Alicante city centre flats we've used. Everything was as described and the wifi was very reliable and reasonably quick for 2 people working from home.
The best bonus was being able to pay Lola an extra fee for a private parking space in a garage a couple of doors away. It's an easy to use space (unlike some very tight underground parking we've used before), is much cheaper than other enclosed parking options in Alicante and more secure than street parking. Street parking is free near the flat but can take a long time to find and can end up 15-20 mins walk away!
We would highly recommend this flat for anyone who wants access to Alicante but who also likes to be able to get away from the noise of the city. We certainly hope to return.
Lola møtte oss i leiligheten, og ønsket oss velkommen. Hun viste oss rundt, og ga god informasjon om leiligheten og nabolaget.
Hun hadde til og med kjøpt vann og vin til oss. Veldig hyggelig vert. Nabolaget var som beskrevet, og føltes veldig trygt.
hola Lola, wir waren sehr gerne in eurer Wohung und haben uns gleich "wie zu Hause" gefühlt; reichlich Platz, gute Einrichtung und der schöne Balkon... dazu der Stellplatz in der Garage, was will man mehr! Die Innenstadt ist gut zu Fuß zu erreichen, Informationen waren vorhanden. Wir werden gerne wiederkommen und können die Wohnung wirklich empfehlen
Lola ja Jose olivat erittäin ystävällisiä. He vastasivat kaikkiin sähköpostikysymyksiimme nopeasti ja onnistuivat toteuttamaan toiveemme syöttötuolista.
Saavuttuamme majoituspaikkaan Lola ja Jose olivat molemmat paikalla toivottamassa meidät tervetulleiksi ja he antoivat hyviä vinkkejä hyvistä ravintoloista sekä nähtävyyksistä.
Asunnon kuvaus vastasi odotuksiamme. Huoneisto oli tilava ja toimiva.
Kerrostalo oli rauhallinen ja hyvällä sijainnilla suhteessa kaupunkiin ja rantaan. Tram -pysäkki oli lähellä, jolla pääsi hyvin myös kauemmaksi tutustumaan kaupunkiin.
Kävelyetäisyyden päässä asunnosta oli ostoskeskus Plaza Mar 2, missä oli hyvä ruokakauppa. Lähellä oli myös toinen ruokakauppa, pieniä baareja ja konditorioita.
Lola was very nice and extremly helpful. When visiting her house it was like visiting an old friend :) The flat was very clean and the location very good with walking distance to the beach, the city and the castle. We had an amazing time in Alicante. Many thanks Lola!

Somos una familia con dos hijos- Yo soy profesora de jardinería y mi marido, Jose, da clase en la universidad. Nos gusta mucho viajar e ir a la montaña. Todos estamos encantados de alquilar nuestra casa y esperamos compartir buenos ratos con las personas que se alojen en ella.
Nos gusta la lectura, la música, el senderísmo, ir en bicicleta.
Cuando viajamos nos gusta ir de camping.
