For what we required this two bed town house was perfect, good location to all the amenities we needed such as good bars,supermarkets and of course the beach.
we did not hire a car so it was important that we had a little help from the guys who looked after the house for the owner, Claire and Dave, and they took us to the main supermarkets for a good stock up.
There is also a Spanish supermarket close by, within easy walking distance, and that had all the items you would need for the day to day things.
The beach on the Mar Menor is only a 5 mins walk and is really well looked after by the local council and as its massive, we never had any over crowding. The sea was shallow and safe, great for kids to play in.
All of the local bars were good, each with its own good/bad points, but nothing too bad that needs to be mentioned, all were friendly.
As we didn`t hire a car we did do lots of walking, we walked to the near town of Mar De Crystal and to the La Manga strip which you can go to the beaches on the med side of the strip. The beaches here are particularly good with fine white sand but the med can be a bit more choppier the the Mar Menor side of the strip.
All in all we had a great stay, there was plenty of room for 4 people but I think it could be a bit crowded if there were any more than that.
The location is amazing, the beach is on the doorstep, the villa is beautiful and the kids loved it all especially the go Karting haha. We'll visit again for sure.
This is a real hidden gem! We booked this as our first holiday abroad with 3 young children. We wanted somewhere uncommercialised and quiet where we could just relax on the beach. The whole booking process was a pleasant and easy experience, nothing was too much trouble and the transfers were arranged to and from the airport. The house was perfect, extremely clean and well presented. It had everything that we needed for our stay. Plenty of lovely fresh towels and we ordered a welcome pack for our arrival which was really useful as we arrived in the evening and it meant we didn't need to get straight to the shops. The property managers Clair and Dave were really welcoming and only a phone call away if we're were to need anything at all. It was very hot the week that we stayed therefore it was great to get back to the house after a morning on the beach and the children could benefit from the air conditioning, whilst I was still able to sit on the enclosed patio area outside and soak up the sun on the sun loungers provided. We didn't do too much exploring as we just went to the beach every day, but the parts that we saw were beautiful and very quiet and peaceful. The local shop 2-3 mins down the road stocked everything that we could have hoped for and the local beach bars and restaurants were very friendly and accommodating. we loved it so much that we have booked again for next year and can't wait!
Had an amazing week in june with the family - fantastic local Beech and enough local shops,bars and restaurants if you choose to use them. The house was perfect for us (2 adults,2 children) with more than enough indoor and outdoor space. Clean tidy and welcoming which was important for us, so much so I've rebooked for next year.
Stayed in march quite resort love the apparent you need a car to get around would stay here again will be going back again this year
