A beautiful, large, Spanish townhouse, lovingly & totally reformed to high quality; quiet yet a few minutes' walk to the delights of Javea Old Town & close to beaches. The Casa is perfect for large gatherings or cosy enough for a romantic getaway.
A spectacular Casa in the very heart of the historic old town of Javea/Xabia, known as the sunrise of Spain and a jewel in the Costa Blanca. This lovingly and completely restored 16th century townhouse also has a separate 2 bedroomed fully self-contained guest accommodation across the pretty inner patio. The Casa is perfect for large families sharing, groups, a family with staff, or just as much for a couple who enjoy spacious living &/or want to "cosy up". Lovingly and totally restored and fully modernised, this large, light, luxury town house has an inner patio, is cool in summer with sea breezes & warm in winter with thick stone walls, shuttered windows, underfloor heating, open fire, some air conditioning and all traditional features. Head down to one of the spectacular beaches or 'secret' coves, stroll around the historic streets or chill/party at home or down at the beach. The house is large and spectacular, with a variety of lovely areas to suit everybody. There is a large communal sitting room with comfortable sofas and a large flat screen TV with multi TV channels in English and Spanish and an extensive movie library. The downstairs 'snug' is surrounded by books and games and has a wood burning stove. The house is unusually light for a town house with an inner patio & 2 roof terraces and loads of plants, the top terrace with outside kitchen. Wander down ancient streets, try one of the many wonderful tapas bars & restaurants; enjoy open air summer concerts; visit the indoor & outdoor markets, (with a huge variety of fresh, local produce); sit and take a leisurely breakfast watching the local Spanish life. Enjoy late night dining or explore the medieval historical centre, or head down to the beach for water sports, chill out on soft, silky sands (cleaned daily) or smooth pebbles of the crystal clear water of the Port. Take a cocktail and watch the sunset 'Ibizan Style' and party from sunset until sunrise if that's your buzz. If that's too lively for you, take in the gentle charm of The Port; admire the stunning yachts & eat at the many delicious fish restaurants along the beach & enjoy fresh fish straight off the fishing boats - nothing more delicious. Here there is peace & tranquillity too, offering something for everyone. If sports are your thing, you are truly spoilt for choice! Javea is ideal for families, children, (young and not so young) as the main sandy beach is particularly safe. Sporty people, party people or simply chillers and relaxers, there's something for absolutely everyone in Javea and all very easily accessible. (Can you tell how much we love it here too...?) People of all nationalities come back again and again to this little piece of paradise & we look forward to welcoming you here too. ¡Bienvenido!
Each and every part of La Casa is yours to enjoy! (apart from the locked dressing room which has all our stuff in it - oh, and 'The Shed' ....but you seriously wouldn't want to go in there anyway!)
Interaction with guests
Upon arrival you will be welcomed by the owner, the housekeeper or one of the staff, in English, Spanish, Valenciana, Italian or French. You will be shown around the house and facilites and given 2 sets of keys and contact numbers. You will be given a change of linen once each week and, unless you need us, we will leave you alone to enjoy!
The Casa is also our home (not just for great holidays!) and so ask that you enjoy it as your own home. We do kindly request that you do not smoke indoors however. We want you to enjoy yourselves as much as possible - it's a wonderful place to share great times - it's a Happy House, so enjoy!
I have just seen this message from 'Irma on Airbnb' forum;it's slightly edited but worth noting despite all our guests being lovely! :....:
"Irma just sent a message to all our guests:
- who uses AC 24/7 even when they are not present
- who doesn't know how to cool the house by simply opening the windows in the evening and closing the shutters during the day
- who heats or cools the house with open windows
- who leaves all the lights turned on even when they are not present
- who takes looooong showers
- who uses the washer and dryer for a pair of socks
- who uses fresh towels and linens every single day
- who use 3 pillows, 3 sheets and 3 covers per person , per night
- who use disposable hotel slippers, cups and stuff
Guests, hotels, holliday resorts , hosts and the entire human kind should listen to Irma.
And Irma says: "Hello, pleased to meet you - I am climate change, your long term guest now."
Wow.....she has a point though!
We live between Javea and England reforming ruins into their former glory!
John and I spent 8 years lovingly reforming a 16th century ruin into our home, (even though ALL our friends thought we were utterly nuts...!); we saw the amazing potential and fell in love with La Casa as soon as we managed to prise open what was left of the door..... We managed to convince 'The Teenager' that it would be 'fun', (and the dog to stop burying his bones in the builders sand) and we finished 8 years later, having reformed, rebuilt, recycled every single centimetre of a 330sqm ruin into a spectacular home and we love it. (The response from every single person makes it all worth it!) The Casa is in the heart of the beautiful Old Town of historic Javea, lovingly and sensitively brought into the 21st century with all mod cons, (winner of May the Best House Win Spain). We also have a Great Team to help make sure all our guests enjoy a wonderful time here in this stunning part of the Costa Blanca.
