Things to know:
- There is a option to have the aIr conditioning and electric heaters for a special price. Depending on persons and rooms used and pay per day..
Since electricity is very high in Spain you will need to pay an extra upon arrival.
In Alicante the air conditioning is not normal to have it by construction in the whole house and since I rent by room and person you enjoy a portable equipment that cool the room and the living.
Same thing with electric heaters for Winter.
Ask me when is need it,,,July isnt as hot, maybe somedays..August you may need it depending on you,,but Alicante has a Mediterranean climate.
Probably from December till February-MArch you may need some heater, depends on you. Alicante is not as cold, but some days are humid and cold.
- If you rent the flat for "one person" o two" or "three"... you are enjoying your own room and the living, kitchen and two batrooms but the other two rooms are no available.
Nobody will come to the flat but you use just your room.
- Price :
And also if you book the flat for some people and then some days some letf early: Sorry we can not charge less for that nights when there are less people. the flat is hire like a whole for the certain number you booked (the highest number of people)
And Viceversa: if you book for less and some more people comes then you have to pay for all the people that comes to the flat. (And if they just come for a few days and you have booked not counting them , the tariff they will pay would be double you pay per person dividing the total amount, this means TOTAL booking paid.)
XTRA payment -If you arrival time is after 21:00 and before 23:00 or weekends I will need to charge 15 € when you arrive.
20 € after 23:00 until 01:00 am (I have a kid and I need to leave him)
-If you like I might (on request) pick you up at the airport for 20 € and 30 € nights (from 20 pm to 1 am) / or before 11 am.
If you come after 1 am I will need to charge half day of the total cost of one day plus per person tariff).
Better ask your price if you do not undestand:) Thank you!

Interaction with Guests
I like to offer the Alicante atractions, and as I have my own Tour agency I could give tips of best things to do and places to eat an visit. I like them to enjoy Alicante as a local:). I could be in touch during the time giving them the info of what is going on in the city.
The neighborhood is full of shops and markets. A local vegetable, meet and fresh fish directly from the boats:)
Even there is a Street Market every Thursday and Saturday morning until 14:00.
It is like a little town. We are located very close to the City center whinch makes the neighbourhood very kind and easy to stay in.- Setting:
The area is a middle class neighbourhood located 10-12 minutes walking to the city center and the old part of alicante.
The building is situated in a principal street C/ Padre Esplá, where you will find all services as supermarket, shoes, clothes ,bread shops, local market with the best fish and vegetables. Also thursdays there is a street market next street.
Next street up there is one of the best restaurants in Alicante for rices(paellas!) and special tapas: Racó del Plá. Also there is a take away Raco del Pla next door. And a take away in Calle San Mateo menu 5 € for lunch.
Also is a perfect lodge close to Hospitals: Perpetuo Socorro, Vistahermosa, Medimar, all within 3 minutes to 8 minutes car ride. A social security Ambulatorio down the street.
Walking to the center is 15 min or less.
Walking to the Castle is 10 min.
There are buses to the Center every 15 min Bus number 6, 9 (and take 8-10 min to get there) and to the beaches (Play a de la Albufereta number 9, Playa de San Juan and Playa del Postiguet (15-25 min).
Also the TRAM (tranvia) is close by to go to little towns as well ans to the center.The Tram stop is MARQ.
Also conections with the University.
BUS FROM THE AIRPORT.
THe bus to the airport comes around every half hour and stops near the MARQ TRAM Stop. Ask the driver;).Then would take like 10 min walking to the flat.
If you flight arrives at 9:30 then you need 30 minutes to get out…and then take the bus.
I think you will be more at 11 or 11:30 at the apartment.
The bus takes 30-45 minutes, and you have to take it. So lets meet at 11:30. So you don't need to run. If you have whatsapp we can contact through it.
If you take the BUS from the AIrport you need to stop in front of MARQ TRAM STOP ( The TRAM is tranvia). ( Street Calle Vazquez de Mella). Ask the driver or anybody " la parada mas cerca del MARQ ". ( El MARQ es el Museo Arqueologico).
Then find the MARQ museum. It is one street parallel where the BUs Stop is. (ask anybody around).
Once in front of the Museum door take a left, walk all the way that street following the Museum Wall, ( 300 meters,,or so) and once you are in a small plaza "PLAZA ESTELLA", the first Street is CALLE SAN IGNACIO DE LOYOLA. That is the street. Go to the beginning of the street until you reach number 1.
If you go before the time there are many cafes around.

Please pick up ALL TRUSH (kitchen, rooms, bathrooms after you). There are containers down in the street.

Hemos estado genial en casa de Ángeles y Carolina, fuimos a Alicante para un congreso y nos permitió gozar de los momentos de descanso de verdad, el piso es amplio y espacioso, entran 8 personas cómodamente. El barrio es tranquilo por las noches y las camas son muy cómodas, lo que nos permitió descansar muy bien. De día tiene mucha vida (y unas zapaterías que son una tentación). Está muy bien comunicado mediante Tram y autobús. Lo recomendamos sin duda.
Although she was in a hurry, Carolina gave us a good explanation of the apartment, information on surrounding areas, and the garage, where we were able to park our vehicle. The description is very accurate, as the place is within walking distance to the beach & castle. Carolina was also flexible on the check-in time with us.
The apartment is in the nice nieghbourhood, close to the castle. The apartment itself was really trim and cozy, we enjoyed it very much!
Carolina is a very nice and friendly person. She recommended us some places around the town worth seeing and gave us a mp. It was a pleasure to stay at her apartment!
The flat is a good value, 6 of us had a comfortable stay. The place is around 20 min walk from the centre of the Alicante and the sea. There are lost of nice coffee shops close by. Carolina and her mother were lovely and helpful. Would recommend this! Thank you :)
Заселяла мама , не говорящая по-английски, хорошо что я знаю португальский, это близкие языки, иначе бы общение было бы невозможным. Так что англоязычные, готовьтесь :) Каролина тоже делает немало ошибок при переписке по-английски, так что возможны многочисленные непонимания, вдобавок к обычной культурной разнице между южными и северными народами.
Большая удобная для жизни любой семьи квартира, две ванные комнаты, одна очень просторная, очень удобно для двоих, когда встают в одно время.
Из негатива: было холодно. не было спичек при заселении, пришлось решать эти мелкие бытовые трудности лично (плита газовая), нет микроволновки, в последний день вырубился свет в 9.30 утра и никакой электрик не намерен был ничего чинить до самого выезда в 17.00.
Надеюсь Каролина позитивно воспримет совет приобрести микроволновку (под нее есть уже стойка и розетка, так что поверить в то, что ее не было - я не могу :) . И конечно же перенести основную информацию о том что в квартире зимой холодно и надо заботиться об обогреве, ПОВЫШЕ чем важнейшие сведения о городе и достопримечательностях :)
Todo estaba correcto, la madre de Carolina nos recibió a la llegada y fue muy agradable con nosotros nos enseño la casa y nos explico un poco la zona y que habia cerca y demas. La casa era tal y como en el anuncio basicamente, no habia nada que hiciera que se empeorara la calidad de la estancia demasiado, todo estaba muy limpio, ordenado y la casa es mas grande de lo que parecia en las fotos. Si hay algo que pueda generar cierta molestia son los ruidos por la noche es una zona con bastante ruido y el aislamiento no es muy alla al menos en la habitacion de cama de matrimonio. En resumen, todo muy bien y en caso de necesitarlo volveriamos.
L'appartement est plutôt agréable, il y a de nombreux magasins et supermarchés à proximité (une supérette ouverte 24h/24 en face), quartier calme la nuit. Il y a également deux salles de bains.
Il est situé un peu en retrait du centre historique, mais c'est très facile d'y aller, environ 15 minutes. Nous n'avons pas pu tester le garage car nous avions une voiture trop haute (type kangoo) mais c'est très jouable de se garer dans le quartier.
Carolina nous a ouvert une heure tardive. Explications claires. Carte de la ville a disposition dans l'appartement.
Nous avons également rencontré sa mère Angeles qui est très gentille.
About the Host, Carolina & Angeles
Hello!, Just to let you know..
My mother and I host the flat. Usually I do the checking s but she covers me (its her house) and we manage together if I am working or so.
About me: :)
I like to meet people and share life. I like to be moving on and discover new life.Love travelling and diferent cultures;when travelling I have to stay in the place to discover the real place,,,not interesting in seeing touristic places but to fell the life on there. Thats why I like to go where I have friends to show me "places": a coffee shop, a lake, a mountain...a second hand store,...
And thats why I like to give the oportunity to rent a house so you can spend more time in the place,,and be yourself..Sometimes a hotel is great, but sometimes you need more space and freedom.
I love Quebec, the Foret, the Atikamek nation and being one with the nature drinking form the Lake and fountains; New Orleans, my kind of town, "be new orleanian wherever your are", London, Paris ,,El Batan, Teruel, the Vasc Country, I need to go there once a year!, Mexico!...MArruecos, Senegal, and willing to go to Africa Magadaskar or ..another island: havent discoverded yet the Oceania..or Amazonas. Neither Alaska but I love to be in the snow and ice too. I will love to be travelling...always anywhere ..:) to meet new people, food, spices, culture, languages...:)
Well, i like to fluye with the life and be alert to be so. Be with my heart. I have a child 3 y.o that conects me constanly with how real life is. That is my motto.
