About the property

Costa Azur -VIEWS OF MAR MENOR

Our dream TWO de luxE apartments sleeps up to 12 (1x penthouse 6 , 1x ground floor 6) 3 MINS FROM EACH OTHER has the 5 * luxury you could wish for - beautiful, exotic, romantic setting with stunning sunsets, 99 footsteps to the soft sandy beach, 9KM of palm lined promenade and the views of the Mar Menor Bay, 10 mins from Murcia airport. Nueva Beach has 24 hour security and underground parking. YR OWN KEY TO THE BEACH

Relax on the terrace, enjoy the sun setting with a glass or two of local Rioja wine or cold San Miguel beer after a dip in the pool. Unwind and rejuvenate, be pampered with Christy Towels after a Hans Grohe power shower, sink into luxury beds (with toppers) and white soft cotton sheets whilst listening to your Ipod on our speakers.

Just think- tip out onto the beach, picnic or visit one of the small huts dotted along the promenade for tapas . NO HASSLE, NO CAR, no heavy bags to carry. Enjoy cooking local fish outside and unwind with sun on the terrace from mid morning

ROMANTIC, REST & RIOJA: We fell in love with the romantic style of the apartments and bought the largest and best positioned apartments on the development - semi detached , south facing with seaviews and sun from 11 o'clock until sunset which are rare. Always check the position and size of the apartments, not everyone is the same!!

Our apartments are ideal for families from toddlers to teenagers or just plain romantics like us, Imagine just a 2 minute stroll to the beach ,watching little ones dig sandcastles or for those teenagers will enjoy the kite surfing, gentle biking along the promenade for an ice cream or just sunbathing and laying in late!

Change over day - we are very flexible having a young family ourselves, so you are welcome to stay until your flight is due if we do not have clients coming in that overlap. IF WE DO we can assist with a secure place for cases and relax until its time using our complimentary beach towels, get changed when ready downstairs in our separate room.

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Deborah,



Well here we are again, the children voted to return as they absolutely love it. The combination of the lovely apartment, seaviews, access to things has been an absolutely winner, which makes my family holiday such a rest and wonderful experience.



Thanks you for being so prompt with everything and actually doing what you say re welcome pack and towels has been a huge bonus.



Going to your apartments has felt like home and hence the big family vote to book for 2015.



Thanks Celia, John and the boys

Notes

Low season - if guests wish to stay less than 7 days there is a cleaning /laundry charge as the rental is so low it does not cover, arrival and departure cleaning and linen. The additional cost is £95.00

Long term stays welcome please phone Deborah and discuss our favourable terms, we are a 10 minutes from Roda golf club.



If 3 - 4 weeks+ there is an increased due to the length of stay, because 2009 we have 2 x 3 week canx at late notice and we could not rebook this period, through no fault of the guests, just due to family medical emergencies and personal circumstances, this left us unoccupied

Every 500 metres or less there is a beach bar and childrens play area, along this 7 miles of palm fringed bay, fantastic for young and old. 5 minutes to our spanish tapas. Shopping mall opposite with good size supermarket. 5 in L Both of our apartments have exactly the same specification, WE BOUGHT THE LARGEST ON THE DEVELOPMENT AND BOTH SOUTH FACING, TWO OF THE VERY FEW APARTMENTS THAT HAS SUN ALL DAY No 6 has the advantage of wrap around grass and access to pool, No 10 Penthouse has 2.5 balconies over 2 floors. Just sit back and relax - luxury living. New 2011 stunning all weather sunbeds x 4, cashmere blankets, lots of warm welcome. Excellent security throughout the complex which is accessible through the 24 hr manned security gates. However always take care of your possessions, not everyone is on hols

Lovely apartment with great views

  • 4 of 5

A very comfortable well equipped apartment! We very much appreciated the folding chairs,beach towels,beach umbrella etc.

The penthouse design worked well for us giving my husband & I privacy, time out & quiet when needed from the over excited grandchildren. The owner Debbie was very helpful & swiftly responded to sort out some missing items for us.

The pool was the family favourite! It was kept very clean & was enjoyed by us all. Mosquitos were a bit of an issue in Aug so don't forget your spray!

Great beach location!

  • 4 of 5

Fantastic stay at these well positioned apartments right on the beach at Los Alcazares. There's a couple of snack bars/restaurants near the accommodation and a good supermarket and pharmacy within a 10 minute walk. You are also not far at all from the weekly Saturday market. It is a longer walk to the main restaurant and bar area along the promenade but we actually really liked this (plus the beach bars en route!).

The apartment was really well stocked with everything you need for a great family break i.e..beach towels and folding chairs, beach bags. A lot of thought had gone into it.

The only two negatives, are the abandoned phase of the complex which doesn't look great and the pool rules. We understand no balls, no diving etc, but no floats or lilos? We were there on our own so disturbing no-one and our young boys still had to remove their float from the pool. It meant we didn't use the pool and went to the Mar Manor every day - no bad thing mind you, it's so warm it's like a bath!

Overall a great stay and I'd highly recommend the apartment and the area.

Owner's Response: Dear Lovely Guest, Thank you for your feedback, it really helps with making sure our guests felt welcomed and had good value and great memories. As the apartments face palm trees, lovely community gardens beautifully maintained and lovely sea views the Phase II does not impact at all as at the rear of the development. However I will speak to security to ensure that they are not too over zealous as no one there in June. Hooray quiet apartments. Look forward to welcoming you back. Best Wishes Debora

Great break in very nice apartment in excellent location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was lovely and the weather in the main was very good - just what the doctor ordered. The close proximity to both the beach and the Spinosa bar was also fantastic. The upstairs terrace is in addition a marvellous sun trap when the beach gets slightly windy. I enjoyed too the walk along the promenade to the main row of restaurants and shops and the proliferation of beach bars en route (most of them serving great tapas) means you are really spoiled for choice. All in all it is a great place for a holiday which I would heartily recommend and I will definitely be back.

Owner's Response: Dear Lovely Guests, Thank you so much for your kind comments. Very much appreciated and I will let the team know as we all work very hard to ensure you have a great holiday, creating wonderful memories. I was out the week before you and the weather was fantastic and delighted to see it continuous still. April 23 - 27 C warms the soul now back in a very wind swept and freezing Sussex. As always we look forward to welcoming you again... Best Wishes Deborah

Beautiful beach side apartment, wonderful owners

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing return stay, this time staying in apartment 10 . Apartment 10 is just as beautiful as apartment 6. It is furnished and decorated to a really high standard. It is really obvious that the owners want their guests to have a marvellous stay. From the most welcome 'welcome pack', to the beach towels, beach chairs, toys and body board for the kids - no details to enhance your holiday are overlooked. The apartment is spotlessly clean and well maintained.

The location is great, a short stroll to the beach and twenty minutes walk to the main 'strip' where you'll find dozens of restaurants. We loved the Mexican food at Delish near the main square. Also if you have kids, El Patio restaurant has a free supervised playzone and delished BBQ'd meat! The Curry Leaf has delicious Indian food, try the tandoori salmon.

The owner could not have been more helpful before and during our stay.

I would gladly recommend this apartment to friends and family.

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!
