About this listing
Modern 2 bedroom apartment in the heart of the Casco Antiguo, the Historic Centre of Alicante. Located only 5 minutes walk from the La Postiguet beach, the marina, the famous Explanada, the Mercado Central and the modern city centre.
The apartment has 2 double bedrooms with double beds and can accommodate a fifth person on a very comfortable sofa in the living area. As well as full air-conditioning throughout, there are three balconies and two large bay windows which provide light from all sides as well as fresh air. The kitchen is modern and has a large fridge-freezer and washing machine. The spacious bathroom has a large walk-in shower.
Near to the apartment there is a large selection of cafeterias, bars and restaurants providing a broad range of Spanish and other International cuisine. The large covered Mercado Central offers an unrivaled range of fresh fruit, vegetables, meat and fish.
Getting around the city is easy either by foot or by bus and access to other parts of the Costa Blanca is straightforward using cheap and regular local buses, trains and trams. Access to and from the airport is easy using the regular buses which stop close to the apartment.
We had a great time with five adults in Alicante. The appartment was exactly as described and met all our expectations. We were happy to discover some food in the fridge and fruits on the table so we didn´t have to go shopping after our arrival. Jonathan was a very amiable host and didn´t hesitate to stop by, when we had a special request.
The noise on Friday and Saturday nights was also exactly as described, but keeping the shutters down helped. Actually the guests from the neighbouring apartment disturbed us more, but that was simply bad luck (or our lack of understanding the Spanish temper). ;)
The beach within a five minute walk was okay for a quick jump into the water, but too crowded for our taste. We preferred the beach of San Juan which could be easily reached by tram at a reasonable price. Much less crowded and beautiful waves! :) Another tram line leads to a more craggy beach, which was nice for snorkeling and even less crowded.
If you want to go up country, you should have your own car (which we hadn´t) cause public transport takes quite some time. But if you prefer beaches, bars and historic sites, this spot is for you!
Pleasant place staying at, very closed to the beach, and plenty of restaurants. Very warm welcome by Jonathan, only watch out crazy noise until 4 am, be ready not to sleep:) if you are with a car, you will need to park 5-10 minutes away, area not accessible with a car.
la casa fue tal y como aparece en las fotos, muy limpia, cómoda, moderna y en el mismo centro de la ciudad. Jonathan hizo que nos sintieramos como en casa, nada más llegar nos había dejado zumo, agua fria y cosas para desayunar.
Si tuviera que volver no dudaría en volver a este apartamento, lo recomiendo 100%
Jonathan è una persona molto disponibile e simpatica. La casa è molto bella e luminosa proprio come nelle foto. Perfetta per due coppie e in una posizione centrale, ottima per raggiungere a piedi la spiaggia , i ristoranti e i negozi.
Vacanza splendida, ci tornerò.
Vi har haft en troværdig og rigtig godkommunikation med jonathan både før og under ferien. Han er nem at komme i kontakt med, meget hjælpsom og reagerer hurtigt på mail og telefon.
Our family of 4 was fortunate in staying in this great accommodation for our first visit to Alicante. Jonathan's friend was very kind and met us at the bus stop, & brought us to the apartment. There was fruit, milk, & wine waiting for us. The apartment is lovely, in a great location, Close to shopping, restaurants, and the beach. The apartment had everything one would want, including great air conditioning . Some of the surrounding buildings need some tlc, but this one is truly lovely. The area was noisy the Thursday evening we were there, but there seemed to be a lot of vacationers celebrating.
My friends and me spent our vacation in Alicante and we were really happy to stay at Jonathan's apartment. The apartment is really great - it is comfortable, clean and located in the historical centre of the city. Restaurants, supermarkets and the beach are at the walking distance.
Jonathan is the best host we have ever met! He has helped us to find the way to the apartment, has given us several valuable recomendations about the city and even welcomed us with fruits and wine!
We strongly recommend to stay at Jonathan's apartment. Next time when we come to Alicante our choice is predefined!
Thank you very much, Jonathan!
