Enjoy the delight of a magical mid 20th century 2nd floor apartment in a brilliant central location. This "Conran" inspired Retro home is located in a heritage building right in the heart of Alicante next to the central market.
If you have ever wondered how your parents or even grandparents used to live in their time but could never get to try it yourself. Well now you can! Retro boutique is a "Conran / Habitat" inspired 1950's / 60s / 70's city centre apartment. Much of the furniture fixtures and fittings are original restored pieces from the era to give you that amazing "through the looking glass" view of a fantastic and inspired period of recent modern history. Retro Boutique is located in an Art Nouveau / Modernist building constructed during the beginnings of the 1920's set right in the heart of the city behind the exquisite central market. The outside double aspect façade offers you a classical style bow window with foliate gables, festoon ribbon cornices and 5 other balconies or balconets all similarly adorned.
The apartment is located on the second floor up the easy original staircase. Heritage building status means no lift.
The apartment consists inside of 2 double bedrooms with 1 single bedroom located off the first main bedroom and has a maximum capacity of 5 Guests.
As you enter to the right is the first double bedroom with a separate single bunk room leading off to the right. To the left along the passage passing the second double bedroom to your right, is the ample kitchen diner and living room with plenty of space to relax. The bar kitchen is a restored original 1950's Formica design and was hand made by the previous owner. There is a large gas and electric stove with sink to one side and all the cutlery, crockery, cooking utensils and pots you could want. The fridge / freezer is from 1978 and is in as new condition. Off the dining area is the shower room with toilet and sink and cupboards. Off the kitchen is a gallery patio where there is a washing machine, sink and clothes line. The living room contains two original retro shelf units one of which contains a mirrored bar and the other the TV / router etc. Lighting is provided by a retro ceiling unit and Italian Arc light.
With the beach a short walk away at the end of the "Rambla" you can wander down with your coffee / wine or picnic at any time. Or you can jump on the tram and head off to the even larger "Playa de San Juan".
It is possible to park a car in the street / plaza outside and in the streets surrounding but it can be time consuming finding a space. Please be aware that some of the zones are pay zones. The great thing is you won't require a car in Alicante and in particular this central location, as it is well served with all the transport services you will ever need. The Art Nouveau Central Market is a just around the corner and provides an amazing shopping experience. The two main avenues with boutique type shops are very close.
The apartment is all yours to enjoy. The only thing locked is the storage room located off the living room.

I will meet you on arrival and hopefully on departure. If you have travel difficulties just ring, text or Airbnb message me with an updated ETA. I am available during your stay should you have any queries. Again, just contact me and I will come round usually within the hour. If we can't see each other on departure just leave the keys on the table, turn off the lights and heating and slam the door shut.
An AVE high speed train goes to Madrid throughout the day. It is easy to arrange an early trip up there for shopping and eating and still be home in time for dinner. The traditional old centre of Madrid is just fantastic. It is one hell of a day out!

Please throw your rubbish daily in the street bins.
Please leave the apartment as you find it.
This apartment is very often booked and therefore it is sometimes difficult or even impossible to offer any early check in or late check out. Thank you for your kind understanding.

I have lived in Alicante for 18 years. Like my home town in England, something always draws me here and when I am away I miss it very much. I love all things Art Nouveau or Art Deco. The styles are timeless, useful and beautiful. They adapt so well to our modern busy lives. I have a wonderful family who all share my passion. Luckily!
