About Michael and Deborah Potts

This is at Cartagena, fab restaurant, great views 30 and lovely memories with family meals with children playing in the sand over the years. We live in very rural Sussex in the middle of nowhere. We wanted the children to have wonderful memories of riding their bikes down the promenade, going to get ice creams, having some independence away from the mum and dad taxi service. We wanted peace and rest as we both have busy jobs and to relax and enjoy tapas on the beach, cocktails at sunset and children swimming at 10 at night, discover wonderful deserted beaches. I love socialising, gardening and grow my own veggies and passionate about agapanthus, food and cocktails feature a lot!!

Love contemporary interiors with comfort factor. Trendy bars but also tranquil beautiful settings.

Michael and Deborah Potts purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Michael and Deborah Potts chose Cartagena & Mar Menor

- Great Welcome, Unique setting of beachfront on the bay with seaview towards mountains,

- Calm shores of the mar menor

- All day sunshine and peaceful family setting with plenty to do or chilax

- We have guests who return year after year, some 5 times and work hard welcoming guests.

- Largest penthouse with fab views and south facing

- Semi Detached not terrace

- We are one of the lucky ones with sunset hours due to the architecture we have top terrace in sun and others do not.

- Loved the seaviews from the top terrace and sunsets

The bay is wonderful, calm seas and instance seaviews. South facing was one of two on the development that had almost surround sun. Fantastic sunsets to have our glass of rose whilst the children could go on bikes and on the beach until late into the evening. The Spanish way of life. Grassed area around the property, easy to come and go from the beach and watch children on the terrace (8rs+ ) play etc.

What makes this apartment unique

THE SETTING OF THE BEACH LOOKING OVER THE WATER LAGOON TO THE MOUNTAINS BEYOND BY THE MEDITERRANEAN

SHELTERED WATERS SO CALM

-Includes warm welcome and Beach towels

- Includes welcome pack

- no additional charges, air con

- Free baby pack, why on earth do people charge

Less than 100 footsteps to foot your feet in sandy beach

- No longer being a pack horse to the beach, you are there

- More sunshine hours and more relaxation as not in a hot car with kids

- Easy of deciding, shall we go to the beach as its totally empty at 10.00 in the morning and staying until dusk at 21.00 BLISSFULL..................We choose the apartments because both are south facing and semi detatched which is a joy. Both have sea views and the children can come and go and have some independence. We can chillax.....

No other apartment on ground floor has the benefit of good sunshine hrs without being overshadowed by other buildings.

Very romantic setting. I have worked in the hospitality industry and try to help all my guests beyond what people expect.

Notes

During low season the apartment is only £10.00 per night per person. Calculated occupancy of 6 people staying 7 nights. If the stay is less than 6 days then an additional cleaning/laundry cost of £95.00 is charged because the stay is so short the income does not cover arrival and laundry cleaning, hope you can understand why. Thanks Deborah



A further reduction will apply if staying for longer than 2 weeks, please speak to me and discuss what you had in mind. Applies only out of the main season.

If staying from more than 2 weeks then £500 deposit is required, as 2009 we have 2 x 3 weeks canx at late notice, unfortunately.
If paying by euros we will have to charge a euro bank transfer fee.

Los Alcazares

  • 5 of 5

The property was excellent and the short distance to the warm waters of Mar Menor was brilliant. Really well equipped and lots of extras supplied by the owner to ensure the Apartment was truly 5*.

We received a generous welcome pack on arrival and the chilled wine and treats ensured the holiday was off to a great start!

We did not hire a car as there was plenty of places to eat within walking distance but I think a car would be useful to explore the wider area but is not essential.

Would recommend the property and the location and overall a great relaxing holiday.

Owner's Response: As our guests know, our home is your home abroad. Each year we upgrade and this year new sunbeds that are at Champneys Health Resort have been bought for the groundfloor along with lots of other things. The penthouse has had 6 new full recliners, new fridge freezer and lots of small but important things such as new sun umbrellas. The location lends itself to relaxing and chilling, whilst 5 minutes away by taxi, you have the hustle and bustle of Los Alcazares old town and new town if you don't hire a car. There are lots of beach bars with tapas every 500 yards on the beach and I provide full information for those who walk to the local restaurants.

Lovely Holiday Apartment

  • 4 of 5

The Apartment had everything we needed to make our holiday stress-free (including an umbrella which thankfully we didn't need). Swimming pool was just too cold for us to use but in the height of the summer it would be lovely. Had our breakfast on the balcony every morning to the sound of the birds chirping in the trees. The Apartment is well catered for and very comfortable. The bread van came at about 9am each morning with artisan breads/ pastries for you to purchase. We enjoyed watching the kite surfers from the beach and snack bar which is literally just outside the development.

The 5 minute drive from the airport is so easy and would recommend car hire as you can then travel round surrounding areas. Loved the tapas restaurants in Santiago de la Ribera.

Short vacation in november 2016

  • 5 of 5

A couple of friends and me were staying in Deborah's and Michael's apartment at the end of November during the IAU 100k world championships in Los Alcazares. To extend our stay for the participation to a little holiday we were looking for a nice accomodation. This apartment was just perfect for the six of us - located really close to mar menor, a very well equipped and clean apartment - we weren't missing anything. Special thank to the owners!

Perfect situation

  • 5 of 5

The property is in a lovely position is nicely decorated with good quality furnishings. We were pleased to receive a welcome pack, which meant we good have a cup of tea until we walked to the supermarket. The trolley was very handy too. The kitchen was extremely well equipped. The pool was very clean, although a bit chilly at first. We spent ages watching all the kite surfers. We had a very relaxing time and hope to return again

Brilliant!!

  • 5 of 5

For a family of 5 this apartment was fabulous, the pool and beach are footsteps away!. The apartment was clean, well maintained and finished to a high standard, the huge bed in the master bedroom was super comfy!. We were very pleased to discover milk, bottled water, tea, coffee, bread, wine and beer when arriving late at the apartment. We had a fantastic holiday and will return, one point to note the apartment is a good walk from the main square in los Alcazares, but as active walkers this did not bother us and we really enjoyed walking along the beach as the sun was setting.

Los Alcazares and The Mar Menor: The Great Pool, the Little Sea... the so-called Mar Menor (Minor Sea) has been known by different names during the course of its history, all of which have described this singular natural phenomenon: a great coastal lagoon (originally an open bay), 170 square kilometres of warm salt water, the largest saltwater lagoon in Europe 7C warm

This setting has everything you need for golf and water sports enthusiasts: great weather, a constant breeze, calm and shallow waters (less than seven metres at the deepest point)... there is no wonder it is considered one of Europe's best golf and sailing destinations. Water sports enthusiasts will be spoilt for choice with sailing, canoeing, swimming, water skiing, jet-skiing, fly-surfing, windsurfing and every other type of nautical activity you can imagine. Golfers can play on the international stage at famous La Manga Golf Club.

Los Alcazares is a lovely Spanish town, which is open all year due to cycle along the prom and enjoy cafe culture, Must do is the restaurant on stilts as on a long jetty surrounded by water fantastic 360 view wonderful, early evening menu for toddlers, great romantics. Wonderful authentic toasta (tomatoes with bread) on the beach for breakfast, buy the very best fish at LA and hotplate it, amazing. LA is known for its fish and the fishmongers are excellent (opp town hall).

Other Activities: Relaxing and reading, for those romantics with toddlers have a wealth of play areas on the beach right next to lovely tapas bars so no one gets bored and teenagers and twenty something, my niece 19yrs did I know that there were some fabulous clubs in L.A and that people are very friendly as she comes from Earls Court I think she knows what teenagers like(Read what our guests say about us).

Golf: Golf heaven, some 26 golf courses within the area, we can email all their details for you to book tee off times directly without a middle man and supply telephone numbers.

La Manga Club, Roda Golf, Hacidenda del Alamo, Altoreal, Rel Club de Golf Campoamor, Desert Springs, etc etc we are ideally located for those who wish to have both beach and golf facilities. Just email for more information

Culture, Boutique Shopping and Amazing Tapas can be found in Cartagena 30 mins, Cabo do Palos is a fantastic fishing village also 30mins and has wonderful seafood restaurants, watch fishing boats come in or alternative, 30 mins to the nature park which has unspoilt beaches and rock pools to explore. Go prepared as nothing there apart from beauty, tranquillity even in August!
