El departamento de Jonathan es genial, muy cómodo y muy bien preparado para 4 personas. Esta en un edificio nuevo cerca de todo lo que hay para hacer en alicante aunque lamentablemente esta rodeado de algunos edificios abandonados muy viejos y sucios. El departamento estaba muy limpio a excepción del baño que no estaba tan bien... Seguramente se le habrá pasado a la persona que limpio porque el resto estaba muy bien. Sin dudas el mejor depto que alquilamos por Airbnb.
Lovely, bright and spacious appartment ! It is nicely furnished and very clean. Superb location, few minutes from the beach and everything is easy walking distance. Jonathan has made us very welcome. Some lovely touches such as fresh fruits, a bottle of wine (for the parents !) and snacks (for the kids) were very much appreciated. Jonathan went out of his way to find a place to leave our luggage as we had a late flight on our last day. We would definitely stay in this appartment again if we go back to Alicante.
Jonathan is an extremely helpful and service minded host. He contacted me in good time before our travel and made sure to have agreements in place on how to meet. He met us at the bus stop and walked us to the apartment. Also he assisted in arranging a taxi for an early checkout. Super!
The apartment is located very central for sightseeing in Alicante. Everything is within 5-10 min. walking distance. It is spacious, bright and exactly as described. It is well equipped if you want self catering. Other guests have reported that you can experience noise from nearby bars and guests during weekends. I can add that (occasionally) weekends start Thursday in Alicante :-)
All in all me and my family, two adults and two teenage kids, had 4 good days in Jonathans apartment in Alicante
Jonathan met us by the port in Alicante and walked us over to the apartment to show us everything and welcome us.
The apartment was very clean, bright and airy. The beds were very comfortable, shower pressure and wifi great.
There were little bits to get us started such as coffee pods, tea, milk, juice, fruit etc which was a lovely touch.
mini supermarket - less than 5 mins (carrefour)
bars & restaurants - 5 mins
port with restaurants, casino and bars - 5-7mins
I would def recommend this to anyone wanting a lovely apartment in Alicante!
Jonathan was a super host. He a a problem in the apartment, but did everything to fix it before we get there. When we arrived, it was all working perfectly.
The apartment is in the old part of the town, really near to the beach and the lift for santa Barbara's castle. The apartment is new, clean, bright and very cozy. We loved staying there.
La ubicación del apartamento es ideal, a cinco minutos del centro andando. Aparcar allí es difícil, hay que tener cuidado con las cámaras, porque si no llega a ser por las advertencias de un policía, nos hubiesen multado intentando buscar la calle con el coche.
El propietario, muy atento, nos recomendó el lugar más cercano para poder dejar el coche.
El apartamento muy bonito y bien cuidado, confortable y muy moderno. Lo recomendaría sin duda.

About the Host, Jonathan
Jonathan worked as a structural engineer for a leading London consultancy for 30 years before moving to Spain in 2012. His apartments are modern, well-furnished and located in the Historic Centre of Alicante. Because he lives nearby he can offer a personal service to all of his visitors
A really worthwhile visit with some great information about the history of the city and the views are stunning. Either take the lift from near the beach or walk up through the Parque ErretaCASTILLO SANTA BÁRBARA ALICANTE/ALACANT 03013
