Mark Webb & Sally Jones
We were a company director and solicitor from Birmingham, but we both retired at the end of 2022.
Mark was managing director of a commercial training company, and Sally was a senior associate in a leading firm of Birmingham solicitors.
Our 2 sons have now left home and are studying/working (we believe!) We both love the Javea area and purchased the apartment at Christmas time 2015. We visit the apartment regularly, but it is available to let for other periods when we are not there.
Why we chose Javea
In 2015 we spent a long time driving up and down the east coast of Spain looking at potential towns and areas in order to find our favourite place to buy a property. In many places access to the sea front was difficult, and parking nearly impossible. One of the things we loved about Javea was the wide open bay, which gave a real feeling of space. The Arenal beach has a lighter coloured sand than many of the beaches down the coast, and overall we felt the sea front was much nicer than the other places we visited. We also loved the 3 distinct areas in Javea - the Arenal, the Port and the Old Town, each of which has a different feel to it. All the parts of Javea have an upmarket feel, and there are an extraordinary amount of good restaurants and bars in all of the areas.
Why we chose the apartment
The location of the property could hardly be improved. Set on a quiet tree lined road right next to a small marina, it is only a short stroll to the main beach area, yet just far enough back to be quiet, with plenty of space for parking during most of the year.
What makes this Apartment unique
The apartment is particularly spacious, with a very large lounge and a sunny private decking area. Upstairs, the bedrooms are also large, especially the master bedroom. The communal pool is probably the best in Javea, being set in a mature garden area with many palm trees.
