About our home
The apartment is on the first floor (there is a lift) of a small, quiet development consisting of 3 blocks each of just 9 apartments. There is a good communal pool set in pretty, mature gardens. The apartment has 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, fitted kitchen, dining area and sitting area with an outside terrace overlooking the gardens and pool. A parking space is reserved outside the rear of the grounds. Within a 10 min. walk there is a supermarket and very good restaurants and bars.
Things to do in the area include:
• Excellent, safe beaches with a good range of activities e.g. paddle-boarding, beach buggies, para-surfing, wind-surfing
• A natural park (Montgo) with good walks
• The delightful town of Denia with it’s fine castle, marinas, shops, restaurants and markets
• Golf (3 good courses within a 30 min drive)
• Short drives to beautiful mountain villages like Quadelest
• Theme parks within a 30 min drive
• Ferry to Ibiza.
The apartment is 9 km from the town of Denia which is half-way between Alicante and Valencia, with each airport within an easy 1h 30 mins. drive. There is a bus service to town.

“We had a lovely stay for 3 weeks in Joe's home north of Denia. While it was further out of town than we would have normally liked, we enjoyed the peace and tranquillity of the location. However we do feel that a car is necessary to enjoy all that Denia and surround have to offer.
Joe's home was comfortable with all the conveniences you expect of home'
Stayed December 2018
“Joe was a wonderful host with excellent communication and very accommodating with us and our dates and the unit was clean and very comfortable, all you need. Some complications as Denia is quite a bit away from Valencia and a bit boring for kids but if as a couple you want a totally relaxed chilled time then do it. I recommend u hire a car as unit is a fair distance from the main denia central and hard to understand public buses.. ”

“Location, location location
As people who move around d a lot when on holiday what we were looking from our first home swap experience was a relaxing holiday within walking distance from the he beach and restaurants. We had one of the most enjoyable family holidays. Joe and Barbara’s apmt is in a quite and mature complex with beautifully maintained gardens and pool area. The complex is well located across the road from a lovely gravel beach (which we preferred more than the busier sand beaches) and within easy reach of water sport activities, good restaurants and much more, and while it is close to
Denia (10 min drive) for us we were happy to be outside in a lovely self contained .area.
The road in front is a little busy but soon you do not pay much attention to it and it doesn’t disturb sleep as bedrooms are more towards the back.
From the outset Joe and Barbara were a pleasure to deal with, kind and helpful and took the upmost respect of our beloved family home.
Thank you for a great home swap experience
Imelda and Antoine”

“I'm adding this review very late, but we had such a wonderful time at Joe's place. We had lots of communication and help before our trip, and tips and suggestions while we were there. The flat and pool are brilliant - 2 mins from the beach and 10 mins from lovely restaurants. Thank you for a great holiday!”

“We had the loveliest holiday staying at Joe and Barbara's great apartment! From the earliest mention of a swap, Joe ensured that every query was answered and provided information about the apartment, area and anything else you need to know about this little corner of Spain! He gave us directions from the airport and in the property there were lots of books and brochures, educating us on the local history, culture and language - muchas gracias!
If you're after a Spanish holiday consisting of stuffed toy donkeys, all-day British breakfasts and Irish themed pubs, then this is not the place for you. If however, you want to spend your time in a very well appointed apartment, lacking nothing you might look for in a holiday, five minutes from the port of Denia and authentic markets and shops, then this is for you. Denia is a lovely town, we haven't seen all of it and are determined to head back to stay in Joe and Barbara's apartment again - that's high praise!! Many, many thanks to them both, we will definitely be in touch!”

“We loved Denia and this apartment was perfect. Our kids played for hours on the beach and in the pool, and when we needed to relax, the apartment was the ideal spot. The deck is also huge and very nice to mellow out at the end of a long day. Joe was a great communicator, in constant contact when we needed help. We couldn't have asked for better hosts. ”
