Has absolutely everything you need.
Date of Stay: July 9th - 11th 2020
Review: This was a last minute booking and I was quite anxious about it due to covid etc. Dawn and Leigh were just amazing from beginning and put me at ease!. They organised a lift to and from Murcia airport and answered any queries that I had before leaving and when I got there with Fiona and Steve who also help keep this property so well run. On arrival it was nighttime yet very hot as in July so air con and ceiling fans were a delight and like a proper Irish person I just wanted a cuppa, Kettle there, toaster, microwave, hairdryer etc so no need to bring any heavy items and in every drawer or press you find everything you need. Storage unit in garage so yes parking available too if needed, Tiny balcony with no sun so nice on the hot days to have a drink but no view but you dont need it as upstairs is a communal terrace and there was never anyone up there so was perfect. It is in an extremely secure development, 3mins walking distance shops etc and the restaurants and shops but far enough away that the music will not keep you awake at all. I slept extremely well, safe in the main bedroom also very handy! Wifi was excellent for the whole stay. Playa Aguamarina the rest are down lots of steep steps, not suitable for kids or elderly but Aguamarina beach is lovely and about 15min walk away. Highly highly recommend the apartment as has absolutely everything you need.

Review: I will be returning here in 2020. The apartment is beautiful and situated 5 mins away from a wide selection of restaurants and bars and 10 mins walk from a lovely selection of beaches. Leigh sorted out the transfers from the airport for me, which was fantastic. Fiona met me at the apartment on arrival and ensured I was settled in before leaving. Pick of the places to eat: Panache and Pucinnis. Bars: Way too many to mention, but turn left out of the main entrance, then first left about 100 yards up the road and there is a lovely little bar to be found. Supermarket is 5 mins walk away where you can pick up fresh bread around 0920. Highly recommended
I will go again

Review: Apartment and complex great, very clean, all facilities in apartment. Beach close, beautiful calm sea 20-24 degrees Celsius in March. Lots of restaurants and bars open on 'the strip' and supermarket 100 metres away that sells everything. Cheap to hire car from Alicante airport and was not a long drive which was good. I will go again
Everything you need and more

Review: This apartment is fantastic! It has everything you need and more. The apartment was spotless and there was lots of information on the area and things to do. The owner was very helpful and nothing was too much trouble. The area is great too and the people are all friendly. The beach is a short walk away and the public transport is ok. I'm hoping to return here soon. Thank you to Leigh and the lady who met us to show us how to work everything.

Review: The apartment is extremely well equipped and in a great location. There are many bars, restaurants and supermarkets nearby. There is a pleasant walkway down to the beach where you will find a beach bar. The beach itself is very clean and is a suntrap. Leigh and his property manager, Fiona were helpful, many thanks to them. We would recommend this apartment without reservation.
Lovely winter break
Date of Stay: 26 - 28th January 2019
Review: Just stayed for a couple of days traveling down from my daughters who lives north of Spain. Also we booked our hire car directly with Centauro. Their base is just off airport but mini bus transport was waiting. We had Questor insurance and they didn't pester us to buy their insurance.
Believe it or not - the cost of the car for 1 week was only 7 euros!!! Lovely couple of days in Spain
The car hire was a nice little Punto and it wasn't bashed and battered, just a few minor scratches. It was fine. Journey from airport easy - 40 minutes. Although we didn't take our golf clubs to Cabo Roig, we do have golf holidays abroad. We usually stay in hotels, but to promote your golf stays, your garage lock up store room would be ideal for golfers bringing their own clubs. Thanks again - Tony
Excellent, well equipped apartment

Review: Apartment was exactly as expected. Leigh was very helpful providing plenty of information about location, travel, car hire and key arrangements. Fiona, the lady who met us, was equally as helpful. We didn't encounter any problems whilst we were there but had we done, they were both available for support. Location ideal with good coastal walks. Several bars & restaurants open, even in January. A big plus in the winter months was the heating. Apartment was warmed by electric heaters. Also English TV channels were available. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this apartment.

Review: Fabulous apartment and brilliant location. The apartment has everything you could possibly want and was very clean and quiet. Stayed in January and was very warm and cosy. Location is perfect. Beautiful beaches and coastal walks. Numerous bars and restaurants within walking distance, and Zenia Boulevard. Leigh kept us updated with all the arrangements and Fiona was there to meet us when we arrived. An extremely relaxing and enjoyable stay, looking forward to the next time. Thanks Leigh
Great holiday, great location
Name: Joe and Fay
Date of Stay: 4th to 11th November
Review: Our first time to the area and we have fell in love with Cabo Roig. The apartment was ideally placed for the beautiful coastal path which we walked every day. The sea is beautiful too, lots of nice beaches for relaxing or a swim. We ate out every day but one, there is a good choice of restaurants and most are reasonably priced. The apartment is walking distance to the restaurants but far enough away so no noise. The apartment is probably one of the best equipped we have stayed in, Leigh has thought of everything to make your stay enjoyable. We would love to go back.
A definite 5 star from us

Date of Stay: 5th until 15th October 2017
Review: From the very first day we booked our honeymoon at Leigh's appartment, he was helpful through emails, and always contactable all the way through to the day we departed. Leigh also booked our transfers to and from airport which was very helpful. Fiona met us at the apartment and made sure we knew everything from the underground lockup, which has everything in, to wifi codes and how to use the aircon. Fiona was contactable throughout our stay should we need her and she was very helpful. The apartment itself was beautiful, perfect for a couple or family with kids, with two single beds also as well as a sofa bed. All bars, restaurants and supermarkets are literally on your doorstep, and the beach is just a short walk. Overall, i would definately recommend this apartment to anyone and will be also a definite 5 star from us. Hopefully coming back with kids next year.

Review: This was my second time staying in Leigh's place this summer. I really can't recommend this apartment highly enough. As usual Fiona was on hand to meet me and I knew that I could contact her anytime should I have any queries or difficulties (which I didn't). The apartment is so clean and spacious. It has literally everything that you could ask for. I rented a car this time and it was great knowing that I had the security of the underground parking space. I will definitely be returning next year, if it's not already booked up. Thanks again for everything.

Review: First of all Leigh who is the owner of the property is marvelous. He has a website which details everything about the property and area which is exceedingly helpful. He is very quick to respond to email queries and we felt he really cared that we enjoyed his apartment and had a great holiday, which we did. The apartment has air conditioning and WiFi and also a washing machine so it's great not to have to take washing home. There is a lovely furnished balcony to use which was great for the morning sun and also a solarium or plenty of space by the pool. The apartment has everything you need to make it feel like home away from home and Leigh also has a storage area so you can use the sun beds and chairs he provides. Leigh obviously cares for this property and his property manager Fiona carries on with that care and helpfulness when you arrive and she shows you around. We highly recommend this property.

Review: We stayed in this wonderful apartment for a week at the start of the school holidays, with a 5 and 15 year old. We hired a car and used the car space under the apartments, taking advantage of the use of the beach chairs, umbrellas, body boards, balls etc Fiona met us and showed us around, the apartment facilities were GREAT! We drove to aqua parks and different beaches although the local beaches were also fun with a range of water sports and the pool at the apartment was my 5 yr olds favourite x thank you for letting us stay x

Review: I stayed in Vistamar for 4 days in May. I couldn't recommend Leigh's place highly enough. Fiona was on hand to meet me and gave me a great run through of everything. The apartment is spacious and spotlessly clean. It really is a home away from home with all mod cons and everything you could wish for. I'm looking forward to returning to the apartment again in August and will definitely book again next year.

Review: We had a great holiday in a very pleasant and clean apartment which is in a convenient location.The beds are very comfortable, the WIFI is really good and we found the filtered water to be a particular bonus. When we were there we noticed that one of the sun loungers was damaged and Leigh immediately authorised Fiona, his Property Manager, to buy a replacement. We were also impressed that Leigh got in touch with us to make sure everything was OK.
We wanted for nothing
Date of Stay: July 5th to15th 2016
Review: Stayed at Leigh's apartment for 10 nights. The apartment was spotlessly clean and well equipped. We wanted for nothing while we were there. We even had the use of deck chairs and sun loungers to take to the beach. The location is excellent, close to the shops, bars and restaurants, and a short walk to the beach. I would highly recommend this apartment and we will definitely return

Date of Stay: 02/06/16 to 23/06/16
Review: We have been several times to Spain but this apartment is the top. Excellent equipment and a very good location. Walking distance both to the restaurants and the sea. If you want to see the surrondings you have your own parking place in the cellar. Fiona helped us with every information you needed and were extremely welcoming. I can give the best recommendations and if you come from Sweden you can call me up (find me at www.hitta.se) and I can tell you more in Swedish about this wonderful place to be.
Thanks Sune and Karin Barkemo

Review: Thanks Leigh for the lovely and home away from home apartment. I honestly couldn't ask for anything more, it has everything to make anyone feel at home. The swimming pool a good part of our stay and the view from the roof is absolutely wonderful. We had so much fun going to the beach, eating out at the many different restaurants located just steps away from the apartment was wonderful, we had so much fun we are already planning on booking for next year. Once again thanks Leigh and also thanks Fiona for being a wonder host.
Everything we needed

Review: Had a great holiday in Leigh's apartment 2A. The apartment had everything we needed and was very spacious, clean and well equipped. The information books / literature on the area were very useful. The local beach is close by and the promenade also links to other nearby beaches. The apartment is close to supermarkets, close (but not too close) to bars and restaurants and the apartment is well secure. We were met by Fiona who was very helpful. She gave us details on facilities, local area etc, and helped with our check in flight bookings home. Leigh's under ground car parking is great, it's secure and it kept the car cool. The roof terrace was great for sunbathing. All in all an excellent holiday and we will definitely be booking again. Thanks Leigh for all your help with the booking, and availability, all very much appreciated.

Review: Just spent a month in this apartment with my husband and it was wonderful, all credit to Leigh for getting it just right. The apartment has everything one could wish for and was in a prime position for the beach and entertainment. There was also a little bus outside the main gates which went to the new shopping centre. This is a bonus if you don't have a car. So, thanks Leigh for the use of your holiday home, it's a credit to you. Also thanks to Fiona and Paddy, they were a great help. Fiona is a gem as nothing is a bother to her. Hopefully we will return again at some time in the future. I would have no hesitation in recommending this apartment to any age group. Thanks again Leigh.

Leigh gave me a very good price and all the information I needed about the area before we went. Fiona and Paddy, the management team, were so helpful and gave you the space to enjoy your holiday. I used the car park facilities and Leigh gave me access to his storage room which really helped with sun loungers, pool beds etc. I would definitely book again. Thanks for making this working holiday work. Thanking you - Jerry and Familly.

Review: Thanks to Leigh, Sally, Jake and Norman for a great first trip to Cabo Roig. The apartment was very spacious and well equipped with anything and everything you would want for a holiday! Was very helpful to have Leigh's management take us to and from the airport so we didn't have to worry about taxis. Some really nice beaches within short walking distance of the apartment, but the pool was also very nice and we spent quite a few days there too. Ventured into Torrevieja several evenings which has lots of restaurants, ice cream parlours and a night market to look at. Recommend Puccinis and Jambon restaurants in Cabo Roig.

Review: We had a fantastic one week's holiday at the Vistamar apartment, which was very clean, spacious and had everything you could possibly need. When we arrived, Jake from the management team was very friendly and welcoming. The security of the apartment was excellent and we also made use of the underground car park, which was very secure. The swimming pool was always very clean and the beaches in the area are beautiful. I can recommend a couple of restaurants, Paccini's is an Italian which is opposite the apartment and Marinasol which is just around the corner do gorgeous steaks! Not forgetting The Cake Box cafe who have the tastiest cakes ever. We will definitely be returning next year. Thank you so much to Leigh who was so helpful with all our needs, especially as it was our 10 month old daughter's first holiday.
Great holiday - definitely going back
Name: John Williams
Date of Stay: July 2011
Review: Myself and my family had a wonderful time stopping at Leigh's apartment in Cabo Roig. The apartment has everything you could possibly need for a holiday, from sunbeds for the pool, to bucket and spades for the beach to DVD's and CD's for the apartment if the weather is not too good (luckily it was glorious sunshine for the whole 2 weeks we were there!)
The apartment was spotlessly clean, as was the pool area.
Leighs management team of Jake and Sally were very helpful while we were there with picking us up from the airport, to useful advice about the area.
With regards to Cabo Roig as an area, there were some lovely beaches within easy walking distance from the apartment.
As for eating out in the evening, you are spoilt for choice with the various restaurants and bars around the resort. Any type of food you would like to eat is readily available.
All in all a great holiday and we will definitely be going back.

Environnement super pour faire la fête pendant les vacances avec les pub, les restaurants, les magasins, etc....restant tardivement ouverts ou pour vous détendre car plage pas loin + piscine et BEAU TEMPS Je conseille vivement à mes compatriotes français cette location (ils ne seront absolument pas du en tout point de vue). N'hésitez pas, contacter Mr Leigh CRESSWELL (propriétaire trés sympa et ouvert à toutes vos questions). Comme l'on dit : "jamais 2 sans 3" et bien nous nous reverrons l'année prochaine Mr CRESSWELL.

I recently returned from renting Leigh's apartment at Vistamar and must compliment him on his attention to detail. We had a wonderful vacation and had such a nice spacious rental. Leigh must be the most honest landlord I have ever rented from and would certainly rent again and recommend the property to friends.

Date of Stay: 2 premières semaines d'août 2009
Review: L'appartement est génial. Tout y est. Vous êtes comme chez vous : rien ne manque (jusqu'au fil et aiguilles à coudre dans un des tiroirs). L'accueil fait par Sally et Jake à votre arrivée (attention : parlent très peu français) est agréable et rassurant, ce sont des personnes qui sont à votre disposition pour quoi que ce soit. Belle région et beaux sites à visiter. Cabo Roig étant principalement anglicanisé, vous gouterez à l'ambiance nocturne des pubs et divers restaurants. Grandes surfaces à disposition. Mais attention véhicule indispensable pour vous déplacer en dehors de Cabo Roig. Nous avons passé un superbe séjour c'est pourquoi nous y retournons encore en 2010. Le propriétaire de l'appartement est très sympa et vous pouvez lui faire confiance, il a pensé à tout dans sa location. Franchement, je conseilles cet appartement pour tous les amoureux de la tranquilité, du dépaysement et surtout du soleil.

"This was a splendid warm alternative to a December ski holiday. Cabo Roig is ideally located on the Mediterranean coast of Spain for central automobile travel to various tourist sites in the area. There is a long coastal path available to walkers. The apartment was clean and nicely furnished, including things to do during rainy spells. The owner and property managers were very helpful and responsive."

Date of Stay: August 2008
The description of both the apartment and area were very accurate. The apartment was very clean and well presented and had everything that you would need on holiday. The fact that the apartment is managed by a local agent is a great help as he can not only offer help should you need it but also offers great advice about the area. The pool area is small and there are a number of restrictions when using it that may affect you. An additional set of keys would have been helpful as there are a lot of security gates. Overall a very nice resort and apartment and I would recommend it as great value.

We've just come back from a wonderfully relaxing week in Cabo Roig. The apartment is fab, spacious, clean and has everything you could possibly need, from parasols to cool box to ice trays, PERFECT.

Leigh was extremely helpful and answered all questions prior to booking and Jake and Sally (Leigh's management team) were extremely welcoming, even collecting us from he airport. Would definitely go back. Natalie and Jim.
