In May 2019 my wife and I visited our present house for the first time with Annika from Sun Villas.
Since my English is only good enough for small talk, I was faced with the challenge of buying a house in a foreign country, foreign laws and a foreign language.
I did not have a good feeling and was very unsure if it would work. I did not know Annika or the sellers and had tried to find a German speaking broker but with the help of Google Translator and what felt like 100 e-mails and WhatsApp messages with Annika we finally signed the purchase contract in September.
Annika was very patient and always responded quickly to the e-mails.
In the end we are very satisfied with Annika and are now homeowners in Spain since December 2019.
Thank you Annika for the support!

We have just bought a property in Javea and used Annika of Sun Villas. She was friendly, very helpful, professional and very proactive – always contactable and quick to respond. We had been looking for a property with numerous agents for some time but shortly after we met Annika she found the one we wanted very quickly. Unfortunately our Spanish is quite limited but Annika has been very helpful with translation. With her knowledge of the area she has helped us to settle in, recommending places and various useful contacts.
We would definitely recommend Annika of Sun Villas and would not hesitate to use her services again.
Thanks very much for everything Annika.

Many thanks to Annika for helping us sell our property in Tosalet in Javea. As we do not live in Spain Annika held the keys and made sure the house was presented in the best way for viewings. She has been very helpful throughout the whole sales process and we made good use of her contacts in Javea. With her help we achieved a good price for our house and she made the process as easy as possible.

We can certainly recommend Sun Villas if you are thinking of selling your Spanish house, Annika’s local knowledge, attention to detail and continuous monitoring of the sale between us, the buyers and the solicitors certainly helped the process go smoothly. We were totally confident that buyers shown our property were given the correct information and advice. We would certainly use Annika’s services if we chose to move again and have already recommended her to friends at Gata Residencial in Gata de Gorgos who are looking to sell now.
Thank you so much Annika, you are a true professional.

In February 2016 we went on a trip around Costa Blanca to look at holiday homes. Annika from SunVillas showed us different houses in Gata Residencial and found one that we liked and decided to purchase.
It is difficult to purchase a house in Spain when you live outside the country and in this situation Annikas help was priceless.
Before we went to Spain in April of 2016 to take care of all the paperwork she had arranged everything, appointments with the police to get a NIE certificate and with a lawyer to go through the documents, she had also arranged meetings with the bank and a notary to finalise the purchase of the house.
Later on she was helpful when we needed contractors to paint the house, redo the garden and build a terrace, also carpenters to replace the door and qualified people to install the air conditioners.
We are still in contact with Annika and she has the answers to all of our questions, and if not she will find an answer for us. She has a lot of great contacts and over time we have also gotten to know them.
We can with great pleasure recommend purchasing a house with the help of Annika, she is a professional from start to finish.

We connected with Annika (Sunvillas) in February 2017 after deciding that the Costa Blanca North, particularly the Javea/Denia area, was our preferred area.
From our first contact right the way through viewings of quite a few properties and resulting in our purchase decision in October 2017, Annika was marvellous. Nothing was too much trouble, including revisiting properties a few times to review our choices.
Annika´s knowledge of the area and buying process was exemplary and she handheld us right the way through to the completion of the purchase. She recommended great lawyers, and was present at every meeting. She also helped us set up our local bank account, property insurance and has continued to give us great advice and assistance since we moved in to our property.
After Annika gave us a recommendation for a local accountant we are now considering a further purchase for a full time move to the area and, guess what?….we will be using Annika again!

This is a massive thank you for your invaluable sales expertise, input and advice after showing and selling me the most wonderful villa in Gata De Gorgos.
You guided and advised me throughout the whole purchasing process via email, phone calls and WhatsApp.
Provided me with a local first class Solicitor, Bank, Insurance etc and an A-Z breakdown of monthly outgoings and taxes as both resident and non resident.
Any queries I had were answered quickly.
The searches, registration and sale went like clockwork, with no hitches or pitfalls, all due to you and the solicitor you recommended.
Your further advice and estimates on furniture and delivery, phone, internet providers and more, was also much appreciated.
After I completed, we met socially one evening at my villa. I hope we remain friends.
You are a lovely person, professional and willing to assist in any way you possibly can.
I would recommend Sun Villas and Annika to anyone thinking of purchasing in Spain.
100% Professional and very personable.
This region of the Costa blanca is awesome, fabulous views and just 10 minutes drive to 3 award winning beaches.
The villas are superb, great value for money.
Annika thank you once again, you are a star! ⭐️
With Best regards,
Suzanne, Gata De Gorgos, July 2018

Just a few words to thank you for all the help you gave us when selling our villa in Gata de Gorgos. You were a lifeline and responded promptly to our emails and phone calls and took care of so many things both before and after the sale. You went out of your way to sort out problems which should have been dealt with by the lawyers. Again, thank you so much for all your help.

Sun Villas provided a very good service when we bought our holiday home in Gata de Gorgos. Annika helped us with all the formalities such as finding a lawyer, bank, insurance company etc and she has been the link between us and them the whole time. She ensured that all the documents were ready on time and worked in a very professional manner. Annika has always been available to answer our questions very quickly by either e-mail or WhatsApp.
Annika also helped us find contractors to reform the house and everything went well and without any problems.
It´s important to have such help when you are buying a villa in a foreign country where you don´t know anyone and don’t understand the language.
We couldn´t have received better service and help and Annika has assisted us throughout the whole process. We would not hesitate to recommend Sun Villas.
