Delightful and very popular 1 bedroomed garden apartment with views to the garden, gazebo and fish pond.
Casa Benedict is a small holiday retreat comprising 2 villas & 2 apartments, 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.
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
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.
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.
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

We stayed in the 1-bed apartment, and it was perfect, with everything that we needed (good sized kitchen and bathroom, large bedroom and large sitting room).
The surroundings were stunning, and everywhere was clean and extremely well maintained. The pool looked lovely, but it was still a bit cold for us visiting in April!
Ian and Jan were wonderful - really nice people and extremely helpful, offering advice on various issues.
We will (hopefully) be going back to Spain in 6 months and will definitely be contacting Ian to check on availability, as it was just so convenient for us. We will also be recommending Casa Benedict to other friends who are planning on visiting friends who live in Spain.
Only a 5 minute drive to Mojacar Playa and also 5 mins to Mojacar Pueblo, but also just down the road from the motorway (though you have no idea thats its reasonably close, as its just so quiet and peaceful!) so it is located really well, as you can pretty much go wherever you want! Very reasonably priced also - was very pleasantly surprised!
Once again, a wonderful place to stay, and we will certainly be returning.
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 !
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.
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.
Apartment Very clean well equipped, peaceful pretty garden.nothng too much trouble for the very friendly owners. A short drive from beach and shopping area. Endless walks that our dogs loved. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hoping to go back for two weeks next year
Having visited the Mojacar region for over twenty years, we feel we know it quite well. However, it has taken us a long time to find the gem that is Casa Benedict. Although only one bedroom, the apartment felt very spacious. It was well equipped, and spotlessly clean. The setting is superb, set in large gardens. There is a swimming pool for the energetic. The location is very convenient, being around 7/10 mins drive from Mojacar Playa & Peublo, and around 5 mins drive to the lovely town of Turre. We walked into Turre several times during our stay. This is a level walk of around 25 mins along a quiet lane. Turre has lots of bars and restaurants, supermarkets both Spanish and English.
It is very reassuring to have the owners of the property living on site, and we found Ian and Jan to be very friendly and helpful. We hope to return in the very near future.
