About the property

A luxury 2 bed, 2 bath holiday home located adjacent to the 7th Fairway on the beautiful Mar Menor Golf Resort.

Only 5 minutes drive to the pristine blue flag beaches of the serene Mar Menor 'little sea' at Los Alcazares.

Only 10 minutes drive from Murcia airport, 50 minutes from the airport in Alicante.

The house is in one of the quieter parts of the resort but is still only a few minutes walk from the 5 Star hotel and spa, bars, restaurants, pools and the supermarket and to the offsite boulevard area where there are many more bars and restaurants.

It is the perfect base whether you are travelling as a family for an annual holiday or as a couple looking to get away from it all for a while.

We have holidayed here with our young grandchildren and they love it. The beaches are perfect for kids, the sea water is warm and the sand is clean.

On the resort, all of the swimming areas have both adult and child pools.

The house has full airconditioning for the summer months and is centrally heated for the cooler months.

The kitchen has all the things you would expect: fridge/freezer, microwave, washing machine, dishwasher, kettle, toaster, electric oven and hob. There is also a hairdrier in the bathroom.

Internet, wi-fi and satelite tv are all connected with a range of international channels available to be viewed on the 48" Samsung. We also have a Google Chrome box installed so that you can watch content on the tv via your smartphone or Ipad.

Hot water and heating is via an on demand gas boiler.

The house has 2 bedrooms, the master bedroom upstairs has a superking size double and ensuite bathroom and a very sunny furnished terrace from which you can watch the golfers play their approaches to the 7th green. The downstairs bedroom has 2 singles that can also be changed to a double if required, and there is also a single zbed that can be put up if required.

The resort itself is very secure, it is a gated community the size of a small town and you will see the security company carry out their patrols. The communal areas and streets are immaculately landscaped, gardened and maintained. As soon you enter the resort you will feel as though you have arrived somewhere very special which of course is just how you should feel when you are on holiday and we have done our best with the house to maintain that vibe for you when you enter the house.

Although we have suggested that you hire a car one isn't absolutely necessary.

If you want to explore the area then clearly a car is a must but the house is close enough to Murcia airport and there are plenty of bars and restaurants within walking distance that if all you want to do is chill then don't bother. A taxi from the airport is 20 - 25 Euros and taxi's are available on the resort from outside the hotel if you want to venture out or need to get back to the airport.

Angela our keyholder and cleaning lady will meet you when you arrive, let you into the house and leave you with the key. She will also get some shopping in for you if you require.

About Chris Tarry

My husband and I live and work in Southampton, we enjoy the company of our children and our grandchildren, all of whom are determined to keep us on the straight and narrow.

Chris Tarry purchased this villa in 2013

Why Chris Tarry chose Cartagena & Mar Menor

My husband sent myself and our daughter on a house hunting expedition after we had enjoyed a fantastic holiday here in summer 2013 with our young grandchildren.

We spent every day of the holiday either on the beach with the children playing in the safe, shallow and unbelievably warm water of the Mar Menor or in one of the resort pools, they loved it, so did we.

We bought the house so that we could continue to holiday here whenever we wanted and to enable us to share the enjoyment we still feel about both the resort and the area with others.

Very comfortable villa , home from home

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 week stay . The villa was extremely comfortable, particularly the huge bed which gave us the best sleep we have had for ages.

The villa is well situated alongside the golf course with a neat, small garden and first floor balcony with comfortable chairs to enjoy a bit of sunshine.

The property has all mod cons and well appointed kitchen.

We would heartily recommend this lovely property to both golfers and those seeking a comfortable base to explore the area.

Owner's Response: That's wonderful, thank you. It is really gratifying to know that you, and others, enjoy their stay. We do work quite hard together with Angela who looks after the house for us to do our best for our guests and it's great when those efforts are appreciated. Of course it helps that it is a lovely house on a fantastic resort. Thanks again. Chris

Peaceful, clean and well maintained townhouse - excellent choice

  • 5 of 5

We stay at this townhouse six weeks in November-December 2016 and really loved the place. As we are keen golfers the house was excellent choice just by the seventh hole in Mar Menor. We would highly recommend this anyone who wishes to spend relaxed time in this area. Weather in this region is almost completely dry even if Malaga suffers from floods.

What a fantastic place to stay

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic place to stay. Myself my husband and my granddaughter had a lovely holiday in June 2016. The new townhouse was just like home from home, really modern and spotlessly clean. The owners were very helpful and replied quickly to any questions I asked. The resort is emaculate and has great amenities, my granddaughter loved it in many of the resorts numerous pools. We hired a car and visited several local landmarks and this also made it easy to reach the beach. The house also had a great view over the 7th fairway , so was lovely to sit on the balcony at night and relax. And yes Chris we did water the plants haha. All in all we had a great holiday in a lovely location and the owners were brilliant we would highly recommend the location and especially the property to friends and family.

Many thanks

Janice

Lovely stay in lovely accomodation

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here in May 2016, the Golf resort is very clean and has several restaurants on the complex, I was also surprised by the choice that was offered in the onsite Spar super market ...... Especially the bread & croissants !

The accomodation is in a quieter part of the resort but is only about a 8 min walk to the hotel and the restaurants. The house was very clean and tidy and has a wonderful view of one of the fairways and Chris was very responsive to all of my questions.

A very relaxing stay in a lovely house and Chris's terms and conditions said it all "Enjoy yourself". Would definately recommend and hope to be back soon

Ideal holiday base

  • 5 of 5

This new town house was just as described. It was comfortable, clean and nicely furnished. Arrangements with the owners were quick friendly and helpful. The Mar Menor Golf resort is an ideal location for exploring the area. There are many beaches close by but this is not all the the area has to offer. The lovely old port town of Cartegena and the local capital town Murcia are both attractive and steeped in history. Within short walking distance are a variety of nice restaurants. The town house is located on a quiet road with pleasant views across the 7th and 10th fairways. We look forward to returning in future.
