The Experience

The old fishing port of Moraira (a daily fish market is still held here) was transformed in the 60s by a mushrooming of villas and apartments. The villa you stay in is typical of the area: low-rise, whitewashed Mediterranean style, encircled by swaying palms, and with jaw-dropping sea views from the terrace. It’s quiet, nicely private and you can stroll to a smorgasbord of restaurants, and the beach. Owners Mike and Sally (she hails from a family of artists) have used good art, interesting objets and pretty linen to make a bright and airy house for families. Grandparents will be happy in the en suite bedroom on the ground floor, while everyone else can spread out upstairs. Little ones have a play area with table tennis and the pool is fenced. The kitchen/diner is generous, and once you’ve whipped up a feast you can pour yourself a G&T and take it out to the terrace to plan the next day. It can get extremely busy in the summer so why not visit out of season? There’s a wood-burner to fire up…

Ticks so many boxes - spacious, well-appointed and close to all amenities. Sally and Mike provided everything we needed. Also convenient for spending some time in Valencia. We flew to Barcelona and the drives to and from Moraira taking in Morella, Cuenca, Lleida and Montblanc were truly spectacular.

Jeremy, Sevenoaks

After two cancellations because of the pandemic, we finally made it back to Moraira, for our first visit to Villa La Marina. The villa is perfectly described and accurate on the website and we have no hesitation in recommending this lovely property to anyone looking to hire it. We just wish we were still there.

Ian, Glasgow

La Marina is a lovely villa and well appointed with stunning sea views from the terrace. It's tastefully furnished, very well equipped and pool/garden area are perfect for relaxation with areas to sunbathe or take shade from the sun. The welcome pack is a lovely touch and was greatly appreciated as we arrived late in the evening. Moraira is beautiful, has so many restaurants and a lovely harbour. Thank you Mike and Sally for sharing your beautiful spanish home, we will definitely be visiting again soon.

Joanne, Liverpool

Our family had a memorable one week stay at La Marina! The villa was perfect for our 3 young children (aged, 8, 5 and 2). We loved the pool and spacious open plan living areas of the villa. The location was ideal - allowing our family to walk to the beach or lunch / dinner at either Moraira or Portet. The owner Mike & his local agent Germon were very responsive to our queries. Book now if you are lucky enough to find avaialbility - you will not be disappointed!

Neil, London

Perfect villa for our stay in October. The layout is lovely and we particularly enjoyed the heated pool, bbq area and upstairs terrace where we enjoyed each evening meal and a glass or 2 of Spanish wine! Great location with easy walking into Moraira, lovely beaches and excellent tapas. We’d definitely recommend! Thank you Mike and Sally for sharing Villa La Marina.

Katie, Morzine

This lovely home from home is in the perfect location (for walking to both Moraira and El Portet) with wonderful sea views. Shaded eating areas, large pool for cooling off, a lovely kitchen for cooking in, and outside bbq for grilling. Really comfortable bedrooms and plenty of storage space. Despite the virus restrictions - face masks in built up streets and shops - we had a truly wonderful 10 days at the villa and were very, very reluctant to leave.

Jane, Brugg

Great place. Amazing views. Could spend forever on that terrace. Unfortunately it was only a week. Can we come back soon???

Ben, Madrid

We flew in from Australia and two of our children flew in from London and Edinburgh with their families. Christmas Day was spent on the sun drenched terrace and in and out of the heated pool. We had great weather for our ten day stay. The house was perfect for us and we enjoyed the facilities and a well equipped kitchen. An easy 10 minute walk to the supermarket and the town. All our expectations were met. Thanks to Mike and Sally for their hospitality and hard work in creating a lovely space.

Kim, Fremantle Western Australia

This was a perfect home for our two families in the lovely town of Moraira. Close to town and beaches, the location is ideal even if you don't have a car. The villa is spacious and thoughtfully laid out with four generous double rooms. The two master beds have their own en suite and the twin rooms share a good sized bathroom. The pool / patio area has everything; two well positioned palms for the sun shy, table tennis table for the kids, a good sized pool with toys and a fabulous bbq and lounging space to soak up the rays. All this and a stunning view will definitely bring us back.

Gillian, Belfast

What a fabulous home from home - only with back-to-back sunshine and the most wonderful view. We're just back from an idyllic week in La Marina with our family and our great friends. The villa excelled our expectations - from the open plan kitchen/dining/ the lovely pool area. It was so well equipped and we felt it offered the right combination of luxury with homeliness. Thank you Sally and Mike - we would urge others to visit Moraira and experience La Marina for themselves. Such a fun week which will live long in our memories.

Claire, Belfast

Not our first time in Moraira, but our first time at La Marina, perfect location just 5 min walk to El Portet, 10 min walk to Moraira with all its restaurants and shops. The setting is fantastic with amazing views. The villa is beautifully decorated inside and out, it has a great pool, table tennis, lovely bbq area and terrace for eating with a great sea view, great welcome pack was also included. Bedrooms all very comfortable with air conditioning. It made for perfect base for our holiday and we would recommend it to anyone looking for a private and comfortable place to stay

Paul, Milford

Staying at Villa La Marina made our holiday. The setting is fantastic with amazing views and easy walking distance to El Portet beach and the centre of Moraira. The villa itself was extremely comfortable with everything we needed including a great welcome pack. The pool, which was lovely and warm (definitely worth paying for pool heating), was also a highlight and there was a lovely garden and terraces to relax in. We would highly recommend this accommodation and would definitely return.

Caroline, Leeds

We have just returned from a wonderful relaxing holiday at La Marina. It was perfect for a family of six; our ages span from 19 months to 74 years! The villa is spacious and our granddaughter loved running around exploring. The villa is extremely well equipped with a great kitchen, a terrace overlooking the sea, a cot and high chair and a pool cupboard with lots of toys. Every morning we walked to the nearby beach at El Portet and swam in the sea. In the afternoons we enjoyed the pool. On our last night we danced to Spanish music as the sun went down! We'd love to come back next year!

Tina, Chiddingfold, Surrey

We are regular visitors to Moraira but this was our first stay at Villa La Marina (and it won't be our last!!!). Everything from the booking process ( made so easy by Sally and Mike) to the friendliness of the local management team helped this to be a memorable holiday. The villa was beautifully presented throughout, comfortable and comprehensively equipped. The quiet location is ideal, whilst being close to both Moraira and El Portet. Thoroughly recommended.

Grenville and Susan, Grimsby

Our first time at La Marina, perfect location just 5 min walk to El Portet and 10 min walk to Moraira. Best property we have stayed at in 20 years of visiting the area. The villa is beautifully appointed with no expense spared, all mod cons you could want and more. Mike and Sally are the perfect hosts with excellent communication throughout the whole booking process. Will definitely be returning again. :-)

Richard, Bournemouth

Thank you for a lovely holiday, the villa and location were perfect for a week of relaxing in the sun! The villa is beautifully decorated and kept inside and out, great pool, table tennis and lovely bbq area and terrace for eating with a great sea view, as well as comfy living area for the cooler evenings. Perfectly located to walk to the quieter beach El Portet to one side, and the busier Moraira town to the other, lots of good restaurants to choose from and beautiful clear seas. Would definitely recommend and return!

Emma, London

We recently spent a fantastic week with friends at this beautiful villa. So very well equipped and homely and in a fab location within easy walking distance to both El Portet and Moraira. The villa has many seating areas dotted around the villa which meant we could always sit in the sun to eat and drink, irrespective of the time of day and enjoy the views over Moraira. However, the interior of the villa was also beautifully decorated and very comfortable too which is often not the case in villas in warm places! We will definitely be returning and can not rate this villa highly enough.

Danielle, London

This was my 2nd trip to Villa La Marina and it just gets better and better...I'm already dreaming of the next time I can visit this stunning villa. The villa is beautifully furnished and feels very homely. The table around the side makes for the dreamiest brunch spot, and the round table on the veranda is such a lovely way to wind down in the evenings with a glass of wine. The location is a perfect balance of tranquility and relaxation, but with lots of places to visit locally if you wish to be a bit adventurous. Highly recommend the walk to El Portet and restaurant on the beach - so pretty

Beth, London

We spent a week at Villa La Marina in early February. This is a really attractive and well-equipped villa that offered everything we needed to enjoy our stay. Unfortunately we didn't spend much time sitting outside soaking in the wonderful views because of the unusually cold spell of weather. Our days were spent exploring the local towns and countryside and in the evenings we would stroll into town to enjoy the restaurants and cafes of Moraira. It made the perfect base for our holiday and we would recommend it to anyone looking for a private and comfortable place to stay.

Paddy, Teignmouth

We visited during a pan european cold snap and Moraira still managed to provide sunshine enough to sip a cold beer beside the beachs at El Portet and Moraira itself. The villa's ideal position allowed us to take advantage of the snow capped mountains, which offered the perfect backdrop for our walks through the almond orchards in full blossom. The local music scene is vibrant and we enjoyed fabulous live music at Saxo, which was close enough to walk to and not worry about driving. We dined out at several amazing restaurants, sometimes driving sometimes walking to locals with great variety.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Sally & Mike Harris

  • Location, location - It is a short stroll from the villa to the sandy beaches at El Portet and Moraira, where there are numerous good restaurants, cafes and bars. To sit and enjoy the view at the waterside cafe at El Portet is heaven at any time of year.
  • Walking - Explore the nearby tranquil Jalon valley, a scenic area of almond groves, orange trees and olives, or climb up into the surrounding hills. Enjoy lunch or tapas in one of the interesting bars and restaurants in one of the small unspoilt villages
  • Culture - It is just over an hour to Valencia, home to the stunning City of Arts and Sciences and Aquarium. The city is most famous for paella, and for the Falles Fiesta in March where the residents set fire to massive statues throughout the streets.
  • Golf - The Costa Blanca was voted 2017 European Golf Destination of the year, there are several championship courses within easy distance of the villa. We can always advise on where to play.
  • Fine Dining - If fine dining is your thing, Quique Dacoste in Denia has 3 Michelin stars, and was in the top ten in Europe. Bon Amb in Javea has got 2 Michelin stars. There are also several extremely good restaurants in easy walking of the villa.
  • Courses - We can arrange private art or yoga courses at the villa. Entertainment - Obviously the heated pool and the beach are usually #1, or go to a park: Terra Mitica, Mundomar, and Aqualandia. For more info go to our Facebook page.
