Finca style villa with fantastic Mediterranean garden and a 12x6m private pool
About Andrew Evans
Hello. I'm Andrew and I live and work in London. I have a passionate interest in property and believe location and character are everything when looking for the perfect home.
Andrew Evans purchased this Villa in 2017
Why Andrew Evans chose Javea
After looking for several years and viewing over 100 properties to buy in Javea we found this one and immediately fell in love with it. Since owning the property we have already created special memories and hope that you will choose to stay here and create your own happy memories.
What makes this Villa unique
The villa is in one of the closest residential areas to the centre of Javea with good roads to all the local facilities. El Tosalet is, arguably the most prestigious area to live in Javea as it is so well maintained and has 24 hour security patrols, making the residents and visitors feel safe at all times, hence it is ideal for families. The villa has one of the largest pools in the area suitable for doing lengths in rather than just plunging!

This is a charming villa and had everything we could possibly need on our holiday. It is very well equipped with good quality furniture and equipment. The whole process was seamless and Andrew was an excellent host. The villa was exactly as described and we had no issues. The pool was superb and we loved the beautiful garden. The weather, in mid September was very kind to us. The villa is very well situated in a nice area and is in easy reach of Arenal beach and Xabia. A good supermarket was close to the villa. There was nothing negative about this holiday and we wish we could have stayed longer. We would highly recommend this villa.
Thank you very much Lynne for these very positive comments. It's always great to receive a glowing review.
It is very satisfying to hear that you enjoyed your stay in Xabia so much. As valued guests you and your family would be welcome back at any time.
Great outside space. Best pool ever.
We really enjoyed our holiday. Owner is very conscientious, for example sorting a high chair and cot for us when asked prior to arrival. This was done at no charge with us being his first renters with very young children. Also very quick with communication.
Indoors, the villa is functional as described. However the TV facilities (inc UK TV via Freesat, plus Netflix/Amazon etc.) was well above expectations for a holiday home of this sort, as was the hot water speed and pressure - big plus there.
The key selling point is the garden and pool. It is so rare to get a grassy garden in this area, which was something we really wanted for the kids. Also the pool is huge and just right in terms of shape, design and temperature (29-30c in the second half of June for our stay!). We got more use out of this pool that any we’ve ever had in our holiday history.
Only downside of the stay was mosquito bites. This was our fault for not taking adequate precautions. If you are staying here in the Summer, don’t be a martyr like us; plug in repellants (Mercadona own brand is supposed to be good), bug spray (under the kitchen sink) - use it all, those critters are insatiable.
This was our third holiday in the Javea/Moraira area. We love it and would go again. If and when we do, we would be happy to stay in this villa again.
Thanks for this review Vince. It was great to welcome you as guests to our villa. I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay. We agree that you won't find a better pool and outside space so close to Javea! Thanks for the tips about Spain's summer mosquitoes. I will add a section in our welcome pack with tips to help future guests; such as making sure all the fitted mosquito blinds are closed at night and giving bedrooms a good spray half an hour before you go to bed. Look forward to seeing you in future years. PS. Thanks for leaving the inflatable flamingo for the pool. I'm sure that the remaining summer guests will get great use out of it!
Beautiful villa in excellent location
Excellent villa that was spotlessly clean and extremely well equipped. There is a fantastic large pool that all the family enjoyed which is enclosed in a beautiful garden area. Villa is only a short distance to an array of local bars and restaurants. It is also close to the beach which, both day and night, was a hive of activity. I would certainly recommend a stay at this villa and will definately be returning.
Thanks for this review. Really glad you enjoyed your stay. Looking forward to welcoming you back next year.
Great Villa at Javea
We had a wonderfully relaxing stay at this villa which we thought was stunning - the gardens and huge pool are fantastic, very private and with lovely views. The villa is so comfortable and homely we felt at home straight away. The villa is in a quiet residential area yet also very close to all the facilities at the Arenal beach. Perfect! We will definitely be back soon.
We’re really glad you enjoyed your stay. It would be great to welcome you back soon.
Fabulous sunny location and garden
My family and I booked a weeks stay in this great villa because of the location and the garden and it was just what we imagined.
The garden was great and the pool was huge - you could actually have a proper swim.
The villa as fully equipped and very comfortable and there was a great welcome with lots of advice of what to do and where to go and good local restaurants too.
Highly recomended - we will be back.
So glad you enjoyed your stay and pleased to hear that you have booked again for 2019!
gran decepción, para nada recomendable
Para nada recomendable, todo sucio, olía mal. Pienso denunciar está estancia, por muchos motivos. Pero generalmente por falta de higiene, falta de intimidad. Me he sentido engañada
Dear Cristina. Thank you for posting this review and giving me the chance to respond. I’m really sorry that despite all our efforts there was nothing we could do to make you enjoy your stay in our home. I very much appreciate the circumstances of your holiday following a family bereavement and we went out of our way to address your concerns. It is unfortunate that you denied anyone access to the villa to assist you. Immediately prior to your stay our cleaners were aware of an issue where previous guests had spilled something behind the refrigerator which was causing a smell. They pulled out the fridge and thoroughly cleaned behind it. This did rectify the problem, but there was still a residual odour which desisted very shortly after you arrived. As the fridge had to be switched off during this process you were unhappy that the freezer compartment was not cold enough when you arrived. During your week’s stay you messaged me 41 times and I responded to every message promptly and courteously, offering solutions to the issues you had raised. You were unhappy with the cleanliness of the oven tray which had some residual carbon on it which the cleaners had been unable to remove. I offered to send in industrial cleaners to give it a deep clean, but you refused on the grounds that it would invade your privacy. Similarly when you complained about the shower curtain, I offered to supply and fit a new one. When I asked our local agent to pop round with the new shower curtain you refused her access and threatened to call the police if she came round again. I noted that the new shower curtain was unused at the end of your stay. You messaged me to say that the pool wasn’t filtering properly and I got the pool maintenance company to come to look at it within two hours, but you were unhappy that they disturbed you on doing so. As I said at the beginning, this is our home and we take any guest dissatisfaction very seriously and would wish to put any problems right as soon as possible. All our previous reviews are extremely positive and are a testament to the hard work and dedication we put in to ensure families have an enjoyable, relaxing and stress free time in our villa. I would have done anything to make things right for you, and although I fully understand, given the circumstances, your desire to not be disturbed, this regrettably made it impossible to do so in this case. Once again I apologise that you did not enjoy your stay in Javea, however please accept my best wishes for you and your family for the future.
The villa is in Javea proper, unlike properties in Calp, Denia, Teulada, Moraira, Benitatxell and Altea which many villa rental search engines suggest are in Javea! It is possible to walk from the property to Javea’s famous Arenal beach in around 40 minutes or it’s a short 5 minute drive away. There is a closer beach at Cala Blanca, 19 minutes walk away which has a laid-back beach bar and open air pool in the summer months. There are some good local restaurants within two minutes drive.
Javea of course has literally scores of restaurants and bars.
