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

Por encima de una expectative razonable. El apartamento de dos habitaciones en el que nos hospedamos se corresponde exactamente con lo publicitado: amplio, limpio y bien mantenido. Su localización es magnífica en el entorno de un olivar y con senderos por donde caminar (quien esté dispuesto a madrugar, claro, porque de otro modo el sol no da tregua (¡esto es Almeria en agosto!). Suficientemente cercano a Garrucha y Mojacar para ir a la playa y comer buen pescado. Aún más cerca está Turre, con un par de restaurantes (Adelina y Solare) estupendos y a buen precio. La piscine del recinto Casa Benedict es magnífica y solo para los huespedes. Ian y Jan son excelentes anfitriones: esperan que el huesped les comunique sus necesidades y las resuelven. Extremadamente discretos el resto del tiempo. En definitiva, disfrutamos de unas muy buenas vacaciones. (Eso sí, hay que disponer de coche, pues aunque hay solo unos 7 kilometros a Garrucha, parecido a Mojacar y 2 a Turre, ir caminando es impensable: ni la carretera se presta a ello ni el sol de Almeria lo permite)."

Spacious two bedroomed, fully equipped apartment set in tranquil surroundings.

We had a very relaxing 10 days at Casa Benedict. The weather was superb, the apartment was great and the pool was excellent. Jan and Ian are fantastic hosts - nothing was too much trouble. We will definitely be returning.

Excellent stay in Turre - would recommend

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic stay!! Property is very clean and well kept with 3 acres of grounds. The property owners are extremely friendly and helpful. The apartment itself was very clean and came equipped with everything you would need - individual wifi, TV, fully stocked kitchen etc.

I would highly recommend this property and will definitely be going back.

Spacious flat in a delightful setting

  • 5 of 5

The flat was immaculate and there was plenty of room for 2 adults and 3 children. Ian was very welcoming and even provided some olive oil on request for a salad! The children had a wonderful time being able to run around the gardens and playground while we sipped wine and watched the sun go down. You do need a car to visit the beaches - Vera and Mojacar were about a 10-minute drive away but there was plenty of space for parking. Turre is about 5 mins drive and has plenty of places to eat. We will hopefully return another year.

Good location but unwelcome noise.

  • 3 of 5

The property is in a very good location, close to Turre, Mojacar & Garrucha.

Before we arrived we were 'upgraded' to the 2 bed 'villa' as there had been some issues with the apartment.

The property is well equipped, clean and reasonably spacious. The beds and two settees are comfortable & Wi-Fi is included which was required as we were there looking for properties to purchase.

Noise was an issue as the owners property is attached to the rear of the ‘villa’. We could hear voices, footsteps and furniture being moved, both during the day and at night.

One morning that we were awoken at 05:20 with the noise of a diesel engine vehicle that was left running, outside our bedroom, for nearly 10 minutes. Once that had gone the noise of dragging furniture started, to be followed by what sounded like a vacuum cleaner.

The owners had family staying and although not using the pool sunbathed in that area every day. With up to 4 family members sat around we did not feel comfortable going out there and stayed on our patio area. We feel that if this area is shared with the owners then this should be stated in the property’s description.

Owner's Response: We did transfer the booking to a villa as there was a small water leak in the bathroom in the 2 bed apartment. We are very sorry that Casa Benedict did not live up to your expectations, it is clearly stated that the owners live on site. We urge our clients to advise us of any problems they have during their stay as we pride ourselves on our commitment to our guests and we can usually find a solution but we cannot rectify anything after the event. The pool area is a communal area laid out to accommodate all of our visitors with sunny and shady areas and sometimes as many as 14 plus share this area happily with lots of social interaction. We have no idea about a diesel engine running for 10 minutes. We asked the guests several times if everthing was satisfactory during their stay and the response was always yes.

We are situated in a semi rural position near Turre which is 5 Min from the beaches of Garrucha or Mojacar. 10 Min from the Aquapark at Vera and only 5 Min or so to E15 motorway exit 520 which runs from Alicante to the south.

Golf: There are several Golf Clubs a short drive away, including the only Desert Golf course in Europe, at Desert Springs, Valle Del Este, Marina Golf in Mojacar and the 9 Hole golf course at Cotijo Grande 5 mins away.
