About Gary Squires

We wanted a special home in the Mediterranean where we could guarantee a beautiful climate and relaxing surroundings, and of course some of the amenities that are on offer at this beautiful resort. We have visited several times now as we have prepared the Accommodation and spent time getting to know the Murcia area. There are playgrounds for the kids just nearby and all the amenities are within walking distance. Because the Resort has a private gated entrance and 24 hour security it has a safe and relaxing environment and we can all relax.

Gary Squires purchased this villa in 2013

Why Gary Squires chose Murcia - Costa Calida

We bought this place to have our own place-in-the-sun. Although based in Spain, the area is calm and relaxing with nearby beaches, mountains, major cities (Cartagena, Alicante and Murcia) and airports (Alicante, San Javier and in the near future Corvera) and with lots of possible outdoor activities around (golf, watersports, mountaineering, biking, etc.)

What makes this villa unique

Security and luxury of a resort and still having your own private place with a superb view of golf, lake and mountains.

Back to stay at the Mar Menor

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at this property two years ago and enjoyed it so much we came back again. This property is an easy walk from the facilities of the resort hotel and on site supermarket and from the restaurants by the main road at the front of the resort. The nearest shared pool is a bit of a stretch if the weather is very hot as it was when we were out there - 34 degrees in July. We have family who live at this Golf Resort permanently and family who stayed at the Hotel Intercontinental. We like the resort and my husband especially enjoys playing golf there - 45 euros plus a buggy if two or more play. He finds the course quite challenging because of the number of bunkers. The course is kept in good order and we even saw members out there plugging divot holes.

The house was much as we found it last time and Gary (the owner) was very helpful and informative. I know the house had a long 10 month let before we were in and there was some maintenance and updating to do which I know Gary had planned in. I won't comment further on that as Gary very, very helpfully let us stay in the gap before he arrived and after they left as it tied in with when the rest of the family could make it to Mar Menor. I'm sure he would have sorted it if he hadn't been so accommodating and helpful to us.

We really like this style of townhouse, it is compact yet has a feeling of spaciousness. I like the upstairs balcony and the feeling of privacy that gives. This house is also a good stop off for my husband and family golfing as it's by the 10th fairway - a good loo break!

We will return :-)

Unas vacaciones estupendas!

  • 5 of 5

En primera linea de golf, con todas las comodidades que puedas imaginar, tiene incluso una barrera de seguridad para las escaleras por si tienes niños pequeños. En una calle tranquila de una sola dirección. A muy pocos metros de la piscina. Mi marido, nuestro bebé y yo hemos pasado unos días maravillosos alli, sin duda volveremos!!

Muy tranquilo y espacioso, con todas las comodidades que puedas imaginar. Incluso tiene una barrera de seguridad para las escaleras en caso de ir con niños pequeños. En primera línea de golf, en una calle muy tranquila de una sola dirección. Mi marido, nuestro bebé de 22 meses y yo hemos disfrutado muchísimo. La piscina está muy cerca, sólo a un pequeño paseo... Totalmente recomendable para unas vacaciones tranquilas en familia. Sin duda volveremos!

Perfect Family Let!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for us and our 3 kids aged 3-8. The house was SPOTLESS when we arrived and we had requested some basic food items to be there and they were and at such a reasonable price. I absolutely could not fault the property it had EVERYTHING we would have needed and more. It is tastefully decorated and spacious with great Air Con system!

The garden and patio area were great for kids and the view onto the golf course was lovely - I couldn't fault this house at all and the communication with Gary the owner was swift and very courteous, He would help in anyway he could - excellent to deal with....

I will certainly consider staying here again - The resort itself was quite quiet whis was a plus for watching 3 kids!! No crowds at pool areas etc, and I would def recommend car hire as taxis will only take 4 passengers and 2 x taxis for a family of 5 meant trips away to beach and shopping were expensive but if a car hire is available all amenities and day trips would be very reasonable. Great house overall would def recommend!
