About the property

Panoramic Views Yet Only 400 Metres From The Beach, Bars And Restaurants

The large private infinity pool (protected by a child-proof fence) overlooks the sea and leads onto a terrace that provides the most spectacular views in Mojacar - in an arc of about 210 degrees the Mediterranean fills around 90 degrees, the town another 90 degrees and the mountains the remainder; Garucha and more can be seen in the distance. There are a large range of sunbeds, sofas, tables and a BBQ for al fresco dining. The house has another terrace, a balcony and a solarium, one or the other of which will provide day long sunshine at all times of the year. The lounge/diner leads out onto a terrace. The house has air-conditioning / heating throughout. Three of the bedrooms are doubles and en suite and lead either directly onto the veranda or a balcony. The 4th bedroom has twin beds and a cot with a WC and basin in the adjacent room.

There is a Sky Box system installed so if you wish to bring your own Sky Card the channels that you have at home will be received - if there is no card installed, then normal free view TV will be received showing most of the UK terrestrial channels as well as Spanish terrestrial TV.

The villa has free Wi-Fi.

About Chris Parry

The photo is of me and my daughter a little while ago but it's the most recent one I have of me - sorry.

I bought the villa in 2010 and have changed it a lot, the work was carried out by a company of Spanish builders to a very high standard - the Town Council are strict and I had to have two architects; I hope you like the work. I love Mojacar and go there as often as my work in Abu Dhabi permits me to. I will retire in a year's time and will live in the villa most of the year from then on. In the meantime please enjoy it and the views which are spectacular.

For your information: Home & Away have added a Service Fee to all bookings, and this is beyond my control; however I have reduced my fees, which haven't risen for at least 3 years, by 5% to absorb most of the additional costs.

Chris Parry purchased this villa in 2010

Why Chris Parry chose Mojacar area

Mojacar was recommended to me by my very good friends who have had a property there for five years - they said that the town would suit me as it had a good selection of restaurants, bars, shopping and other attractions that I would like, and they were right.

I have lived in the Middle East for a long time so I wanted a home that had the sun and a good life-style. My main requirement was for a sea view but I didn't think it would be possible for me to get such a good one. I think Mojacar is great and I am looking forward to living there full time when I retire

What makes this villa unique

Quite simply, the views are absolutely stunning and you can hear the waves when you sit on the terrace or either of the balconies; it very relaxing sitting in the easy chairs on the terrace with a glass of something nice listening to the waves lapping against the shore.

The property is very convenient for everything, the sea, shops, bars and restaurants - I can walk everywhere if I want to.

I like to read and I enjoy sitting on the 'Romeo and Juliet' balcony reading a good book, taking in the views with a glass of something nice.

A pool party with a BBQ on the veranda with friends is also a great way to spend a day / evening - when my family was there in august there were 15 of us in the pool, and it wasn't crowded.

Excellent villa with outstanding views, situated close to beach, bars and restaurants

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a superb holiday in a villa sporting all ensuite bedrooms and everything needed to make our stay most enjoyable. Many bars and restaurants to choose from all of which were a short walk away.

Excellent property. Exceptional host

  • 5 of 5

Having visited Mojacar numerous times over the last 20 years we were looking forward to a return this year.

We were booked to arrive at the property at the end of February.

However, we were forced to cancel at the last minute, due to an illness in the family.

Chris couldn't have been more helpful and sympathetic to our issues.

Chris, many thanks again for your understating and excellent communication with us.

Although we cannot directly review the property, I know its location and the stunning views it offers over Mojacar Playa.

Within a short walk there are numerous bars and restaurants, catering from simple fare to more complex dishes.

I would recommend utilising the cheap local bus service. This runs (typically every half hour) in a loop that takes in Mojacar Playa and Mojacar Pueblo. Use it to visit the old town on the hill.

With its excellent climate, Mojacar is a year round destination. We hope to return soon and will ensure that we stay at Chris' villa.

Very Comfortable Villa with Fantastic Viewd

  • 4 of 5

Just had a month stay here. The villa is very comfortable, Topsy turvey design maximising the views from the upstairs lounge. What a view it is! The whole of Mojacar Playa stretched out below you.

Things we really liked, villa very quiet, nicely laid out space & lots of patio areas, pool looked lovely but not at this time of year, great wi- fi, modern tv with good choice of UK channels, good washer/oven hob etc.

Owner has stocked up on lots of games, books & dvds to entertain you during your stay.

We weren't so keen on the big hike up the hill from the beach, tho at this time of year, driving down & parking is never a problem. The only reason we didn't give the full 5 star award is that, in Jan/Feb there is no sun on any of the main patios. You have to climb up to the roof terrace to catch the rays. So, I would say this is a brilliant villa for summertime. The owner & his housekeeper were really helpful & responded promptly to any communication.

Would definitely consider a return visit at a different time of year.

Owner's Response: Dear Dave and Kay, Thank you very much for your positive review and I am sorry about the sun not reaching the balconies and veranda in the winter months, I hope it didn't affect your vacation too much. I am glad that you enjoyed the villa and the CDs, games and other facilities. As far as the trek up from the beach is concerned, although it is only 400 metres, is very steep; I think that is the price to pay for such wonderful views. I do what you did, and park my car at the bottom of the hill. Once again thank you for the review, it is kind of you to take the time. Best wishes for the future. Regards, Chris

STUNNING VIEWS

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 2 weeks and had a lovely holiday. The villa is spacious, comfortable, with the most gorgeous views over the resort of Mojacar playa and the nearby mountains. Both the owner, Chris and his agent at the resort, Christine are very helpful and easily contacted if required (we had a small issue with the hot water). We made the most of the sunshine on the roof terrace which got the sun almost all day - we didn't use the pool area as it was always in shade this time of year (Nov).

We had good internet and free view tv at the villa which meant we didn't have to go out to find entertainment unless we wanted (although a lot of places are closed in Nov)and the kitchen facilities were more than adequate to cook up our favourite meals. For a meal out we highly recommend Bellavista which is a 20 minute stroll along the seafront.

All in all we had a comfortable, relaxing holiday and we certainly intend to visit again.

Lovely property!

  • 4 of 5

Great stay at this spot. Very spacious and well appointed, both Chriss' lovely to deal with, questions were responded in a timely manner.

It is high on the hill so a bit of a challenge to walk down to the paseo, late in the season meant that the only sun exposure was on the roof top, so no swimming in the pool. And the view was spectacular.

http://www.mojacar.es/Servicios/Informacion/informacion.nsf/lecturacss?ReadForm&id=064-001_en&nv=Informacion&r=064T-IF-lugaresplaya-en&fd=2&pag=Plan%20your%20trip&tipo=MenuCategoria

Mojacar is a tranquil little resort that is a firm favourite with families and couples looking to enjoy a relaxed Spanish atmosphere and plenty of modern facilities. Mojacar pueblo is an enchanting hilltop village of white washed stone houses that rise above the modern beachside (Playa) resort. The village is heavily influenced by past and present artists, and the winding little streets, art galleries and traditional tavernas still exude a bohemian atmosphere. The beach at Mojacar is a 7Km stretch of golden sand and is actually many different beaches; Mojacar beach itself has been awarded the European Blue Flag status.

Although Mojacar is the place for relaxation there are plenty of watersports activities including scuba diving and windsurfing. There is also a nearby golf course or why not try horse riding through the spectacular Sierra Nevada National Park. Mojacar features plenty of bars and restaurants and can be a lively place during the summer evenings.
