Kerstin

Gran Alacant - spacious 80m2 apartment with 2 bedrooms (one double, one twin), 1 bathroom (with shower over bath), kitchen, utility room, living room with dining area, terrace with space for 6 to dine.

Built on an urbanization with shared sports court (tennis, football and basketball), pool, the apartment is exactly 1km to the beach (door to sand between your toes).
(The tennis / basketball court gets busy in the summer months but the pool does not;-)). On street parking is available.

The apartment was built in 2003, is in good condition and has been redecorated (2013). It has aircon in the lounge / dining area, ceiling fan in front bedroom (back bedroom gets a through breeze).It is tiled throughout and has fans and electric wall heaters. I changed the original electric water heater (which only gave enough hot water for 2 quick showers). The current boiler heats water on demand (piped gas).

Please note that the entrance to the apartment is up a flight of 20 steps. (It's wide enough for pushchairs and prams).
3 minute walk to local bars, restaurants and small general store / bakery.

A car is useful for or visiting further afield or out of peak season where the bus service is not as frequent.

WIFI connection to reliable ADSL internet connection.

Your host, Kerstin

Guest Access

Self-contained apartment. Shared pool (open in the summer), tennis and basketball courts.

The Neighborhood

I particularly love my neighbourhood off season, during the week, when I have the nature reserve and beach almost to myself.
I love hearty walks cross country, off-road to El Altet (North, inland slightly) and along the coast road to the fishing village of Santa Pola (south).

Getting around

3 minute walk to local bars, restaurants and small general store / bakery. 10 minute walk to main supermarkets.

There is a very reliable bus service, from Alicante to Santa Pola which passes through Gran Alacant. Services are very frequent in summer but planning is required during the rest of the year.

A car is useful for visiting further afield (golfers, theme or water parks) or out of peak season when the bus service is not as frequent.

  • Kerstin is amazing person!!! She provided all requested information, answered to number of questions, gave lots of advises during the stay and made us feel like at home. I am very happy we've bacame friends and looking forward to visiting her once again :) Her apartment is very nice and cozy, equiped with everything you may need in your daily life, close to the Carabassi beach, supermarkets, bars etc. You can have delicious dinners with a glass of wine in a nice terrace. Lots of areas around for sport activities (running, cycling, gym). Bus stop (which is near the beach) brings you to Santa Pola (market, Tabarca island etc) in 10min or Alicante (grand mercadon, museums, port, old town) in 30min. I give 10/10 for this host and lovely place :)

  • Kerstin`s place was perfect. There was all what we needed to live and relax. The flat was fully furnished, in kitchen we had everything what we needed to cook. We had even sunshade but sun catch us anyway :) We had little chat with Kerstin and it was very nice to meet her. She gave us a lift to the airport. We thank You and hope to return next year to Gran Alacant.

  • Hemos estado 5 dias en el apartamento de Kerstin y estamos encantadisimos por el trato que hemos recibido de ella, por el apartamento, por la situación, por la tranquilidad de la zona, por la piscina comunitaria....El apartamento tiene todo lo necesario para pasar la estancia lo mejor posible. Lo mejor, la terracita que hay donde se pueden pasar unas agradables veladas. Además esta la playa de Carabassi y calitas preciosas cerca del apartamento... En fin, no dudaremos en volver a contactar con Kerstin otra vez que volvamos a Alicante. Muchas gracias por todo. Besos

  • Kerstin is a nice a gentle person, she even bothered to pick us up from the airport, becoz we didn't arrange transportation of our own.
    The house is clean, and is located in a quiet neighbourhood.
    It's a nice and cosy appartment with plenty of room. And the beach is about 1 km of walk, near a great beach-club Life Beach Club, which is also open at night till 3 am...

  • Kerstins' appartment was very clean and comfortable with a terrace protected from the sun where you can easily have lunch or dine for 4. It is situated in a very quiet area of houses build around 10 years ago. The swimming pool is 70m away with a magnificent view on the sea and well laid-out surroundings. Restaurants, Bars and a small shop are 200m away. Beach is 1km away but is an easy walk from the apartment and is one of the most beautiful beaches we have seen in Eastern Spain, with sand dunes, making it look very natural compared to other crowded and urban beaches we have seen in other places. Kerstin herself is very friendly and helpful with any questions you may have. I highly recommend this place!

  • Excellent séjour. Appartement encore mieux que sur les photos. Terrasse assez grande et ombragée pour prendre les repas. Très jolie et agréable piscine. Le tout dans un environnement plutôt calme. Accès facile à la plage. Pas besoin de prendre la voiture même avec un bébé. Une hôte parfaite. A notre arrivée, plein d'attention pour nous et les enfants. Un vrai plaisir, nous sommes très heureux de notre séjour.

About
Independent traveller with a homing device set to Spain (where I've lived off and on for 10 years). I like to keep active: walking, running, swimming etc and any yoga or zumba classes I can fit in. Dog lover - so if I'm visiting you, you may have a volunteer dog-walker. My resolution for this year is to catch up with friends far and wide and enjoy fine food and wine in good company. I speak English, Spanish, Portuguese, French, German (langsam bitte!)
