About Tracey Bartholomew

We are a married couple with 3 children and have spent many happy, family holidays here in sunny Spain. Since buying our second home, we have found it so easy, fun and relaxing, and we love to come here at least 3 times a year.

Tracey Bartholomew purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Tracey Bartholomew chose Los Alcázares

We have recently updated and redecorated the apartment throughout and love nothing more than waking up to the views of palm trees from every window and breakfast on the sunny balcony. The private roof terrace has stunning views of the mountains and the Mar Menor sea. If you prefer, you can relax by the swimming pool or take a short stroll to the fantastic beach with it's scenic promenade and welcoming beach bars.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment is a non-smoking apartment and is ideal for families and couples. Unlike some apartments, the air conditioning and final clean are both included at no extra cost. Linen and towels (excluding beach towels) are provided, as well as a small welcome pack including bread, butter, milk, water and toilet rolls for your convenience.

There are 2 wheeled sun loungers on the roof terrace and portable loungers and chairs which can be taken down to the pool area. There is a table and chairs on both the roof terrace and the balcony.

Access to the complex is exclusive to residents via secure gates, and there is also a lifeguard during the summer season. Cleaning is on departure at no extra cost. Extra cleans can be arranged at an additional cost. Pick ups and drop offs at the airport can also be arranged, if required.

Changeover - negotiable with the owner. Often midweek flights are cheaper, so we can be flexible with changeover days, depending on the next booking.

Great apartment, unique resort.

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderfully placed apartment, a short walk to the main tourist strip in the north of Los Alcazares, the Plaza Mercadona, with the scenic Mar Menor just further on. The Mar Menor is a unique inland sea (Mar Menor means 'Little Sea' in Spanish) with shallow and pleasantly warm waters, with virtually no waves. (Be warned though there are some strong currents in places, but not in this particular region).

The apartment was quite modern, immaculately clean, well furnished, and had everything we needed, especially the very efficient air conditioning and the spacious fridge for those cold beers (purely medicinal you understand). Car parking spaces were never a problem (which is abnormal for the majority of the Spanish Costas), and having a car opened up much more of this area of Spain for us. The fantastic beaches of La Manga were a short drive away, as were the multitude of Golf courses, historic Cartagena, plus the breath taking views from the bastions just south of the city.

The night market is also a short stroll away, and is definitely something - or rather someplace - different for acquiring the inevitable souvenirs. The private balcony faces onto a parkland, and affords a cool breeze from late afternoon - you could spend entire evenings there sipping local vino tinto (also for medicinal reasons of course) and watching the world go by.

Also something a little different, Patrulla Águila(the Spanish verion of the Red Arrows) can be occasionally glimpsed flying out of San Javier Air Force base, located a few kilometers up the road. Wonderful spectacle.

Lovely apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great holiday and found the apartment had everything we needed and more. The location is perfect as it is close to restaurants, bars and beach but yet in a quiet area so not disturbed by noise. There was a lovely breeze through the apartment and on the roof terrace so even though we were there during August we did not find it too hot. Also the air conditioning is great to use during the night for a good nights sleep and the beds were very comfortable.

Thank you Tracey for letting us rent your apartment.

Owner's Response: Thank you Lisa and Neil for your lovely review. I am so pleased that you enjoyed your stay and you had everything you needed in the apartment. We are very fortunate with the positioning of the apartment that the breeze can flow through and as you said, it does really help to keep the apartment at a comfortable temperature. I know you also enjoyed the roof terrace and again, it's a great place for relaxing in the sunshine or it also has the shade if you prefer. Thankyou for looking after our home and I look forward to welcoming you back soon. Kind regards, Tracey.

Another Great Holiday

  • 5 of 5

This is the 3rd time we have stayed at this apartment and the 7th visit to Los Alcazares. I struggle to think of any negative points at all. Nice apartment, ideally located, fully equipped within a secure complex. Lots of bars and restaurants, supermarkets etc within a very short walk. Less than 10 minutes from the beach. Perfect.

Pleasant apartment, excellent location and lovely complex

  • 3 of 5

Very pleasant apartment. Great location for shops and reasturants. Beach 10 minutes walk away. Complex is gated and very nice. Lovely pool area and hot sun terrace above the apartment. Bread and milk in the fridge when we got there, that was a welcome surprise. Local supermarket closes at 9.30 pm on Saturday and is not open on Sunday so be sure to get there. We did with 5 mins to spare. We would go back and we would recommend it to others.

Owner's Response: Thankyou Karen for your lovely review. I'm so pleased everything was to your liking . We aim to make your stay as comfortable as possible and as you said, the small welcome pack in the fridge is very useful if the shops aren't open when you arrive. I know when we talked you said you enjoyed sitting on the balcony and watching the world go by - we love it there too! Thankyou for looking after our home and hope to welcome you back soon. Kind regards, Tracey.

Excellent apartment in lovely location.

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a two week stay in this lovely well appointed apartment which had everything and more we required for our stay.

The location of the apartment could not be better being close to the restaurants, bars and shops and a 10 minute stroll to the stunning Mar Menor waterfront.

The private roof top terrace is excellent for relaxing and we used this daily.

The pool area and grounds are very clean and well maintained and best of all quiet.

The owner, Tracey, done everything possible to make our visit to her home a very pleasurable one, thank you.

We look forward to returning on our next visit to Los Alcazares.

Owner's Response: Thanks Mark and Laura for your lovely review. It's so good to hear that our guests have had such a great time and that they love the place as much as we do. We love the roof terrace too and we are very lucky that we have the turret aswell to provide shade if we want a bit of time out of the sunshine. As you said, everything you need is within close walking distance and I agree- the Mar Menor is stunning! Thankyou for looking after our home and we look forward to having you back soon. Kind regards, Tracey.
