The terrace of our apartment block leads directly onto the beach. The La Manga Club is just 5 minutes away, and its 3 x 18 hole golf courses often hosts the Open. The facilities are available to non-residents.

Several other good courses are within easy driving. Our apartments are within walking distance from a very reasonably-priced sports center, with floodlit football pitch, tennis courts, gym, and spinning and pilates classes.Also canooing. In school holidays there are activities organised for children. Riding stables are just nearby. The old Roman town of Cartagena is 20 mins drive, or a pleasant 20 mins train ride from nearby Los Nietos and together with Murcia and Alicante offer great shopping, culture and eating.

5 minutes drive takes you to the cafe-lined quay of Cabo de Palos with superb fish restaurants and fantastic Sunday outdoor market: watch the fish being brought in. A few minutes drive further takes you to the La Manga strip, 23km long with plentiful restaurants, bars, shops, cycle lanes and miles of beaches.

This is really a holiday for every generation of the family, but also good for romantic breaks too. From free mud baths for arthritis or skin problems, to all the sporting activities. from high buoyancy warm seas brilliant for children, for windsurfing and sailing classes and go-carts for the older ones, or the untouched beaches of the Calblanque natural park next to the international diving centre of Cabo de Palos. Take a picnic to enjoy in the dunes: walk, cycle or ride the nature trails. It is not allowed to be built on, and just 15 minutes away.

The fruit and vegetables are all grown locally and sell in daily local markets., they taste wonderful, and our local restaurants do a great set menu for 8 euros. You can walk along the beach to something very sophisticated, however.

We are the closest apartment block to the beach, . All the rooms have ceiling fans. There's also hot and cold air conditioning. We have duvets, lightweight summer bedding, and pure cotton sheets for your comfort. Both bedrooms have wardrobes, chests of drawers, and lamps. The kitchen has combined oven/micro-wave, hob, fridge-freezer and washing machine. Cleaning charge of 45 euros is payable locally, on arrival, also a refundable deposit is taken against damage.

We respectfully ask that you smoke only on the balcony, not indoors. Any childrens equipment can be pre-delivered. There's parasols and equipment for the beach and balcony.

Perfect and Stunning Location! with amazing views over the Mar Menor and beyond.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have just returned from this beautiful location in this front line beach apartment looking over the lovely calm waters of the Mar Menor, and views over to the La Manga Strip which we walked a few times along the shores to get there it's about 40 mins walk at a slow and relaxed pace, once your there you get to the Meditarainian side with lots of bars and resturaunts along the front, we particularly like the Surfers Bar and PaddyWacks Irish Bar. We loved the contrast between the two seas.

Also we had a day out to Cartagena which is well worth a visit we took the bus which cost €5.20 return for the both of us on a comfortable air conditioned bus. We loved the absolutely amazing marina with its beautiful promanade and bar/resturaunts, also the City has lots of beautiful historic buildings.

We where met at the airport by Graham who manages the apartment with his wife Debbie the cost from the airport is €35.

The apartment is owned by Juliet who is most helpful with all the info to help you really enjoy your stay and its so important to her that you do just that. She has provided everything you need in her well equipped home from home beach retreat, must say we found the bed really comfortable and I'm fussy about beds with my back problems lol.

From the balcony the views just took our breath away the 1st morning we woke as we arrived late at night, and didn't want to leave on our day of departure.

Also just want to mention Juliet booked us a table at the Award Winning Resturaunt Malvasia for our Wedding Anniversary highly recommend for that special meal which is just round the corner.

To sum it up we really enjoyed our stay very relaxing and would highly recommend to friends and family.

Owner's Response: Thank you Anita for such a lovely review! And its true, it gives me great pleasure to cherish my guests. Our part of Spain, - the area between the 2 Seas - is not well known - which has the advantage of being less crowded in summer, and its very special to be on the shores of one, and within walking distance of the other, and yet to have easy access to culture, sport, eating out and shopping too.

Fabulous relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely love this apartment. So quiet and relaxing and the most comfortable bed ever! Apartment has 2 air conditioning units so it is lovely and cool. There is everything you need in the apartment, so you can eat out or relax and enjoy some food in your own space with music or TV. The lights on the balcony just make it the perfect place to sit looking out towards the sea. I will definitely be returning, there is so much to see in the area and unfortunately I was only there for 4 days. Thanks Juliet

Neat very clean appartment in Playa Honda

  • 4 of 5

I booked a week in Spain for my mum as she had complained that the summer in Ireland had been terrible. We were just heading to our spring in Australia after a long winter so it suited me too.

The appartment is not situated on the La Manga strip rather it is on the Mar Menor side. It is quiet here and it is not a close walk to the Mediterranean sea.

However the appartment is spotlessly clean, neat and compact. Two bedrooms, one bathroom and a kitchen lounge area leading on to a balcony. There are air conditioning in longer area and main bedroom and fans in all rooms other than bathroom. The second bedroom has little ventilation as the windows are sealed shut - probably due the children issue and safety. It does make stuffy at night though.

Everything else is just Perfect!. Juliet is a fabulous host. Responsive, and knowledgeable. Grahame came and collected us from the airport is lovely and knowledgeable too.

There is a great supermarket over the street run by Lollie who is a real sweetie. Yes, it is quiet, no it isn't the night life but it's safe and calm. Great little spot.

Must do's -

Hire a car from the as airport

Visit Cartagena

Go to the Sunday market at Cabo de Palos- fantastic!

Owner's Response: So glad you and your Mum had a good time Ruth. Its good to have the feedback re 2nd bedroom windows - which the previous guest asked us to seal - I will get Air Conditioning sorted for that room too. Also its a short walk to the bus stop and a quick journey by air conditioned bus to the Med beaches and La Manga. The bus also goes to Cartagena, so its not essential to hire a car.

Relaxing break

  • 4 of 5

Nice apartment with lovely view of the Mar Menor. Apartment had everything you need and literally a minute walk to the beach. Location was quiet however, lots of restaurants all within a short walk or drive away. Excellent for relaxing beach break.

Perfect View Day or Night

  • 5 of 5

Would we stay again and recommend to family and friends - YES! We stayed from 19 June to 7 July but wish it was longer.

Location: Right next to the large sandy beach on the Mar Menor, just a few steps away. The beach is spotless, cleaned every morning with well positioned changing cabins and portaloos. The water of the Mar Menor was warm and gently sloping. Perfect for young children. The apartment on the 8th floor gave great views across the Mar Menor to La Manga. There are a few beach bars within less than 10 minutes stroll. Just stroll along the long promenade, step onto the sand and you're in one of three or four beach bars. There is a well stocked supermarket just three minutes walk away with very friendly staff who appreciated our attempt at their language. There are a few cafe/restaurants within a five minute walk and also a chemist near the supermarket. We ate a few times at Bar Apicoco (English spoken) just three minutes from the apartment and found the choice and quality of food to be very good. Our daughter loves going to the gym and there is a well equipped sports centre five minutes walk from the apartment. The cost just 12 euros a week which included classes like spinning and yoga. The bus stop for the La Manga to Cartagena bus is about a seven minute walk. The bus times are 'approximate'! The cost to La Manga is 1.15 euros and 2.30 euros to Cartagena. Great value on comfortable air-conditioned buses.

The Apartment: Clean, cosy and comfortable. Air-conditioning and ceiling fans kept the rooms at a comfortable temperature. Great wifi and flat screen TV with several English channels. The kitchen was quiet small but contained everything we needed; washing machine, microwave, fridge/freezer, cooking hob, toaster and most importantly a kettle. All the cutlery, plates and utensils we needed. Plenty of room and storage space in the bedrooms and comfy beds. Good towels for apartment use were provided. Some beach chairs and an umbrella are in the apartment.

Check out Paddywacks bar/restaurant on La Manga and Via Romana in Los Belones (English spoken in both).

Juliet, the owner, could not have been more helpful before, during and after our stay. She genuinely cares that guests have the best stay. Debbie and Graham who meet and greet guests were extremely helpful on site. Graham picked us up at the airport (35 euros is the going rate).

A fantastic holiday - Thank you Juliet!

Location

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Murcia, at 30 Kilometres Nearest Barpub : a short walk at 100 Metres Nearest Ferry : La Manga at 10 Kilometres Nearest Golf : 20 courses within 45 minutes at 2 Kilometres Nearest Train : Los Nietos at 5 Kilometres Nearest Motorway : AP7 at 3 Kilometres Nearest Restaurant : a few minutes walk at 100 Metres Nearest Beach : Playa Paraiso at 50 Metres Car: recommended

Playa Paraiso is conveniently located for daily markets, Inexpensive sports center, international standard golf, tennis, spa and gym. A marine reserve offers scuba lessons + varied marine life and shipwrecks.

These and the bright lights are all 5 minutes drive away. Also nearby are riding,waterskiing, sail, kite & windsurf schools,a big go-cart track and fishing trips. Our view is directly onto the Mar Menor sea, with its warm, shallow waters (up to 30º in summer).The mineral-rich, high-saline waters alleviate arthritis and skin conditions,promote post-operative healing, and are also perfect for swimmers and young children. A sports centre is a few minutes walk. Cartagena and Murcia offer culture, entertainment and shopping .Playa Honda with its beach bar, bus, supermarket and restaurants is a couple of minutes stroll..The protected undeveloped beaches of Calblanque are a few minutes away. Bicycles can be hired. You can dine on the beach to the sound of the waves overlooking the Med, or try paragliding.The seafood is outstanding. Murcia airport only 20 minutes away, and Alicante an hour..

Cafes,restaurants, chiringuitos, beach bars,supermarket and sports centre are just a few minutes walk.

Other Activities: go carts,kite surfing, casino, spa,canooing, arthritis/psoriasis treatments bowling, sailing,riding.

Golf: Although situated on the beach, we are just 5 minutes drive from the La Manga Golf and Sports club. Its 3 x 18 hole courses often host the Open. There's also pitch and putt, numerous other sports, spa, restaurants and Casino. Its open all year round to the public, but is expensive to stay there. We are also within driving distance of several other courses (please ask us for details).

For non-golfing moments or family members, there's so much else on offer; from nature reserve beaches, sand dunes and trails to walk, cycle or ride, to city sophistication. Drive 5 minutes to The Strip for the beaches, bars and restaurants of the Mediterranean side, then cross over the road to the Mar Menor - like a healing, warm bath in the summer.

Both our apartments can sleep 6, and we are happy to accommodate stays of less than a week. Car hire or chauffering can be arranged. The golf courses of Vilamartin, Las Ramblas, Campoamor, La Finca and Altoreal are also under 45 minutes drive. We are well-situated for the annual international festivals: Mar de Musicas, Jazz, Flamenco, Romans and Carthaginians, and Semana Santa, as well as important archeological permanent exhibitions. And, as mentioned, the La Manga Strip, approximately 23 km long, offers nearly 46 km of beaches and designated cycle tracks, plus eating, drinking and shopping.
