Two superb 2 bedroom villas & apartments with private pool and gardens - 2 Bedroomed Garden Apartment

Overview

Property

Updated: 29-Nov-2016
2 bedrms, bathrm, fitted kitchen, lounge/diner, dining terrace, roof sun terrace

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.

About the Owner

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.

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

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.

Chillaxing at Casa Benedict (in 2 bed apartment)

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely place to totally relax and enjoy the rest. Superb rooms, Ian and Jan, perfect hosts. Apartment was spotless, outside was either by the lovely pool, or relaxing in the fabulous gardens. If you want music, clubs, busy noise, you best look elsewhere. Casa Benedict is a place to enjoy and relax, read a book, sip some wine, if it gets too hot, take a dip in the pool. I was there for 16 days. 10 out of 10.

Excellent location long term stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed long term in the garden apartment at Casa Benedict for two and a half years.

For the duration of our stay any problems or issues we encountered were dealt with quickly and efficiently.

We were always made to feel very welcome and invited to any social functions on site.

The apartment is spacious with all necessary appliances provided.

The gardens were well maintained Jan and Ian were constantly investing their energy into ensuring all guests received good service.

They are dog friendly which was perfect for us and Tia & Mac ( Casa Benedicts pet Labradors) were adorable.

We are now in the UK, but intend to spend the winter's in Spain.

We wouldn't hesitate but to spend our time there at Casa Benedict.

Owner's Response: Hi John & Lynn Many thanks for the great review. We do miss not seeing you around and it was very strange for the first few weeks, more to the point Tia did so miss visiting Lynn every day. Jan & myself wish you every success with your move back to the U.K. As a great entertainer Spain's loss is the UK's gain.

Calme, beauté des paysages et bon accueil

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un excellent séjour à la Casa Bénédict. Un grand merci à Ian et Jan pour leur accueil et leur gentillesse. Nous avons aimé le calme des lieux au milieu des oliviers, la piscine très appréciée par mes enfants même en octobre. Nous espérons revenir prochainement pour continuer à découvrir cette magnifique région. Juste une suggestion : mettre à disposition des documents touristiques à l'arrivée.

We loved having Lady with us as she is adorable. Thank you for suggestion for information we did have a folder with local information which is in need of updating. Je vous remercie beaucoup pour la grande revue et nous avons apprécié d'avoir à rester avec nous, même si vos 2 filles gardé me faisant frissonner comme nous nageons seulement en Août. Nous avons adoré avoir Lady avec nous comme elle est adorable. Nous vous remercions de suggestion pour les informations que nous avons eu un dossier avec l'information locale qui est dans le besoin de la mise à jour.

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.
