“Beach Retreat”
Reviewed October 6, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

This cottage is located at one end of a quiet beach in an area geared for agriculture rather than tourism - the approach is through several miles of plastic covered greenhouses and the beach is only seen as the road sweeps down to the cottage and on to the beach (a hire car is essential - it's about a 90 minute drive from Alicante airport) . This cottage is at the front of a little compound containing a couple of other, newer rentals, and although unlike the others it doesn't have aircon (which could be a major inconvenience in the summer!) it does have a wonderful patio area with a gazebo to provide shade to the outside dining area. The beach has fairly coarse sand, and with few tourists, very little rubbish. The sea is a bit rough for children to swim unattended, but very pleasant for us big kids, a small drop on gravel and then shelving gently to get out beyond the breakers - and warm too (end of September) makes for a great sunrise swim - can get a bit rough by lunchtime as the heat gets up, but still good.
There is a small group of cafe/restaurants about a mile or so up the beach - very little English is spoken so take a good phrasebook, although the staff are very friendly and the Spanish food is excellent (far more locals than tourists here!).
Bad points - this is an old building on a beach under some trees, therefore there is wildlife!! Ants are the biggest problem, also the local family of stray cats - don't leave any food unattended inside or outside as those cats are quick and sneaky! (a cheap water pistol is the best defence). Also because of the rural setting, toilet paper needs to be binned and not flushed - we're used to rural Greece so this wasn't a problem. Other issues - there's no internet and no mobile 'phone signal unless you walk a little way down the beach (aah - peace at last!)
We had a minor issue with the hot water, and the owner went above and beyond to sort it out - very friendly and good communication (in English!) prior to and during our stay. Minor correction to the description - the sun sets behind the mountains so can't be seen from the terrace, but sunrises can and they are well worth getting up for!
In all, and for what's on offer, we consider this cottage to be a little overpriced - but the location is very appealing and we loved it so much that we changed our plans and stayed an additional week, and will definitely be staying here again in the future.

Management Response
21 Oct 2014
We are very pleased to read the review sent by our guest last week, especially when he wrote that he wants to come back in the future and that he will recommend our cottage to his friends.

At Fishermanshouses´` we really do our very best to convert clients into friends and we are sure to see our friend and is wife again next year.



Some short comments about, what our guest calls, “wildlife”. As you know, ants like sand and the fishermans-house was built 108 years ago just on the beach. Only very strong chemical products should be used to get definitely rid of them. We do not do that, because our cottage is considered a pet friendly one and so we make sure that there is no danger for the dogs of our clients and friends.

As far as the cats are concerned, take note that they are coming from our neighbor because they like more the table scraps they get from our guests than the dry pet food from the neighbor .We love our guest´s idea about the use of an, “anti-cats-water pistol”. Could be a very creative welcome present for our guests next year.



Finally please learn that we are always ready to help our guests with minor problems (gas bottle, Hot water etc.), excursions and recommendations: in your language, of course.

By the way: there will be air-conditioning in your house next year.

Thanks again for sharing your impressions and see you soon.
