1 Bed Garden Apartment

Delightful and very popular 1 bedroomed garden apartment with views to the garden, gazebo and fish pond.


About the property

Casa Benedict

Casa Benedict is a small holiday retreat comprising 2 villas & 2 apartments (Important - to see the other units click on multiple units), so available as individual units or ideal for family & friends to share whilst being independent.

Situated in peaceful surroundings near a typical Spanish village, 5 Min by car to the Resort and Beaches of Mojacar and the fishing port of Garrucha. Our Villas and Apartments are set in a garden of three acres planted with oranges, lemons, olives, figs, etc. Large patio area with barbecue around the swimming pool, lovely ornamental garden pond and gazebo for relaxing in the shade.

Good security with electronic gate access, guests provided with remote. The property is newly built and provides everything you should need

T.V, microwave, washing machine, fridge, iron, etc. Two bedrooms, 1 double, 1 twin, with bed settee in the lounge area to accommodate up to six people per villa. Pool and facilities only used by the villas and apartments so very private and quiet. Panoramic mountain views in all directions.

We have installed a 2.4 metre satellite dish and are still able to receive British T.V. channels

Locality: An enchanting Moorish village, nestled between the Mediterrasnean and the Sierra Cabrera mountains, with narrow winding streets of whitewashed houses opening out into small Plazas. Mojacar is an ideal base from which to explore the real Andalucia- the countryside and villages surrounding Mojacar have altered very little over the centuries. Mojacar's gently shelving beach is over 4 kilometres long, windsurfing and sailing are just two of the water sports available. Browse for bargains in the colourful local markets, centred round authentic Spanish restaurants and Tapas bars.

Ambience: If you are looking for clear skies, reliable sunshine and fine beaches, look no further than the Costa Almeria, with at least 300 sunny days a year, and more total daylight per year than anywhere in the world, this part of Spain has the perfect holiday climate.

This small complex is owned and run by English couple along with their two dogs Tia a Black Labrador and Mac a Golden Labrador both have been raised alongside children and are very friendly (they get more comments in the visitors book than we do) we are happy to give any help and advice to make your stay more pleasurable.

Our complex is newly purpose-built and consists of 2 attached villas, a 2 bedroomed apartment and a 1 bedroomed apartment all totally self-contained around a central swimming pool with a smaller children's pool attached. Set in an area of three and a half acres, planted with orange, lemon, mandarin, grapefruit, olive and fig trees. Each villa comprises two double bedrooms, one with double bed, the other with twin beds. Bathroom and kitchen, lounge/diner, patio doors to dining terrace and spiral staircase up onto rooftop sun terrace. The villa accommodation is designed ideally for 4 people, but can comfortably take six using the sofa bed in the main lounge.

About Ian or Jan

We purchased Casa Benedict after deciding to escape the usual drudgery of sitting in Traffic jams on our usual commute to work and after a short break in Barcelona where we loved the Spanish way of life.

We also live on the property in an adjoining 3 bed villa.

Ian or Jan purchased this apartment in 2004

Why Ian or Jan chose Mojacar area

The property was only 2 years old when we purchased it and we wanted to move to Spain but still need a small income to pay our way. We have always had our faithful dogs and we needed plenty of space for them as well. At the time of purchase Jan's Daughter and grandchildren were also living in the area but have now moved back to the U.K.

What makes this apartment unique

We fell in love with Casa Benedict on the first viewing and made an immediate offer after sitting on what is now our front terrace enjoying the views of The Cabrera Mountains and the village of Mojacar set at the foot of the mountains.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Comments from our visitors books



Our stay here has been fantastic, brilliant apartment, pool, garden & area. You both have made us feel very welcome and at home. We will recommend you to everyone - Mr & Mrs Ray Hampshire.



We have been made very welcome and provided with everything we could want. Nothing was too much trouble for Ian & Jan - Mr & Mrs Pollard Nr.Manchester.



We love it here Ian & Jan were fabulous hosts. Casa Benedict has the homely touch and the little things like the info folder and Tara & Macy (Eddie Loves Them) make a difference. Thanks for a brilliant stay we shall return - Mr & Mrs Hickman with Eddie aged 6.



Thanks to Ian & Jan we have really enjoyed our time here. The Villa, Pool & Garden have been great and Rumer has used all her camera film on the dogs. The setting & location of the Villa combined with the hospitality ensured that the two weeks have been the most relaxing & pleasurable - Mr & Mrs McDermott Sheffield

A brilliant hideaway with the best hosts

  • 5 of 5

Ian and Jan looked after us like we were family when we stayed in Casa Helena. Everything was spotless, the villa had everything we needed, and the pool was amazing. They were so kind to our two small children, lending them toys to use on the beach, giving them an ice cream one hot afternoon and playing with them in the pool. The bbq in the evening and the beautiful location meant we had relaxing evenings after busy days. All in all a perfect stay and I would thoroughly recommend it.

Fantastic peaceful retreat in the sun

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in the 1 bed apartment which was extremely comfortable and well-equipped with lovely views of the large pond (with fountains lit at night) and rear garden. Ian & Jan were excellent hosts who made me feel right at home. Casa B. has the best of both worlds, being away from the noise of a seaside resort, yet close enough to a series of wonderful beaches & restaurants. Mojacar playa is only a ten minute drive away. Would definitely recommend

Pour la 3 ème fois: Nos meilleures vacances

  • 5 of 5

Pour la troisième fois encore Merci à Ian et Jan pour leur accueil, leur discrétion, leur disponibilité et surtout leur gentillesse.

La casa Benedict est un endroit très agréable, calme et dépaysant à seulement quelques minutes en voiture de la plage et du magnifique village de Mojacar.

Nous espérons revenir chez Ian et Jane avec toute notre famille l'année prochaine !!!

Merci à eux.

Welcoming, calm and relaxing

  • 4 of 5

We spent a week in the one bedroom apartment in mid February and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The owners, Ian and Jan were most welcoming, discreet but always available if required. The accommodation provided everything that we needed with the kitchen being particularly well equipped. The location was perfect for us, combining seclusion and quiet with the convenience of being only a short drive from the resort of Mojacar and the attractions of Almeria province. Another visit to this lovely, dog friendly property is definitely on the cards !

Fantastic relaxing place

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the 1 bedroom garden apartment for 10 days and cannot recommend these holiday rentals high enough. We found the apartments clean and fully equipped, We had a very relaxing stay and will not hesitate recommending these apartments.

Ian and Jan were lovely and very welcoming.

Beautiful gardens. Very clean. Everything u need.

  • 5 of 5

Ian & Jan run a lovely little place. Very helpful. Supply all u could possibly need for a self catering holiday. Apartment was very clean. Pool was clean and the gardens beautifully maintained. There is a small children's play area too. The dogs were gentle and did not come in without invitation. A quiet and relaxing place that we will definitely visit again.
