About Miss Helen Ward
Originally I'm a farmers daughter from Cheshire . I now live in Windsor in the UK After having worked extensively all over the world and have decided on Moraira as my second home as it is a beautiful place to kick back and relax by the beach. I am a designer and the villa is my second home . I spent 2 years renovating it and now I'm ready to enjoy it and would love to share it with others . I am a bit of a beach bum and water sport's fanatic hence the Kayaks and SUP boards being available to guests . Enjoy !
Miss Helen Ward purchased this Villa in 2014
Why Miss Helen Ward chose Moraira
Location Location Location! Casa Helena is situated next to the fabulous, swish 4 star Swiss Hotel, a beautiful boutique hotel with spa facilities and a great buffet breakfast where villa guests can dine if they wish (15 euros per head). Casa Helena sits in an elevated position overlooking a green vista, fringed with palm trees to one side and hills dotted with beautiful villas to the other. Just a 20 minute stroll down the not too steep hill and you are in the picturesque town of Moraira with its pretty beaches, bars, restaurants and marina. You really have the best of both worlds as when in the villa you feel like you are deep in the Spanish countryside yet you are actually only a stones throw from buzz of the town.

Absolutely loved our stay at the villa. As three couples and a baby we found there was loads of space for all of us.
The outdoor grilling area is great for paellas and loads of space for table tennis.
Great location and just a nice distance to the main shops.
Helen was fantastic through out our stay and we will be booking back in the future!
I’m very pleased you have had such a great time . I’m happy to help in any way I can to ensure guests have the best experience possible . Thanks !
Our family of 5 stayed at Helen's villa for 2 weeks in August, and part way through my other nephew joined for a week.
The villa worked fantastically for all of us. My sister and her family stayed in the main house and my partner and I used the garden apartment. The set up allowed us to chill out together during the day and evenings, but provided some time out/space as required. The villa is nicely furnished and having 3 bathrooms (with excellent water pressure) was a definite plus.
Most of our days were spent by the pool, which we all voted to be the best of any villa rental to date. It was the right size for our twice daily water polo anyway, and the noodles came in great for the team in the deep end and retrieving wayward shots 🙂�.
The villa has so many different zones/areas to it. The seating area by the bbq is great, but we pretty much stayed at the sofa area by the pool. It worked really well for breakfast, lunch and early evening drinks, and provided shade for those who wanted a break from the sun.
The villa is about 20-30 min walk into the centre depending on pace. It is quite hilly though and there isn't much lit pavement an route, so we drove in/back or caught cabs.
There are two supermarkets about 5 mins drive away Mas y Mas and Pepe La Sal. We thought the latter had more choice but both are reasonably priced.
Whilst there my sister and I had our birthday meal at Ca Pepe about 15 min walk down the road. The food and service was superb, with some nice little touches for the occasion. Other enjoyable meals ...
Bar21 - nice tapas planks, albeit you cannot order individual dishes. Burgers and Caesar salad were good too.
Chillers - Latin American food with a twist
Katmandhu - the boys wanted Indian one night and we all thought it was one of the best we've ever had
La Bonita - good chicken and fish dishes and our 11 year old wolfed his fillet steak in Roquefort sauce!
Helen was really responsive before, during and even after our stay and Rachel and family do a great job looking after the villa.
We had an excellent holiday and would go back tomorrow if we could.
A game of table tennis then paella cooked outdoors - what else is needed?
Lovely villa with plenty of character inside including some fascinating pieces of art. A good 30+ minute walk from Moraira centre but taxis were easy and it was quite a nice way of walking off the sangria at night. Some lovely restaurants nearby as alternatives. The additional cash charges for linen and cleaning were frustrating and could have been included in the booking. A few extra pillows and sheets would have been useful. Otherwise a very well stocked villa with plenty of plastic glasses, plates etc for the poolside and a wine glass for every occasion in the kitchens. The paella pan lid was a revelation. The outside was amazing, with loads of different outdoor areas to use and things to do - the table tennis championship went on all week, lilo races in the pool worked well, the evening draughts and chess games got competitive, and the paella in the outdoor kitchen was a definite highlight.
Gorgeous Villa, perfect location and extremely helpful owner.
We stayed for two weeks at the end of July/beginning of August. The villa was just like the pictures. It had everything we could possibly need and Helen was so helpful both pre holiday and during. We had an amazing 2 weeks and would highly recommend.
Thanks so much for your great review . I am genuinely thrilled you have such an enjoyable stay at Casa Helena ! And taken good care of it 🙏�. It would be lovely to see u return some day .
The property was large and great for different generations sharing a holiday.
We had a great holiday. My son in law left some items at the villa and Helen very kindly returned them free of charge. Great location for visiting surrounding area. Would stay again. 😃
A fabulous villa with plenty of space in a wonderful setting.
