About Gill Garside

Whilst I am a 'Yorkshire lass' I have lived in London for a long time where I now work as a life coach. I first visited the area around Vera long before the Valle del Este golf course was built. I fell in love with the wilderness of the desert campo and the beautiful mountains that change colour with the evening light. I have spent many hours on horseback discovering wild partridge, tortoises and wild boar! The scent of wild thyme and rosemary as the horses brush past the plants is always with me. And, I love the weather and the beaches, there are more sunny days in this area than anywhere else in Spain.

Gill Garside purchased this villa in 2006

Why Gill Garside chose Mojacar area

Because it has marvellous views from its elevated position. It has lots of space and is great for entertaining, the garden is private and not overlooked. The private pool really is big enough to swim in and you don't need to wear a swimming costume if you so choose! You can walk to the Valle del Este Hotel and listen to the frogs' chorus at dusk whilst sipping a cool beer on the terrace.

What makes this villa unique

Large private pool

Shady terraces

Great position overlooking the golf course

Stylishly furnished to a very high standard

wonderful villa in a tranquil setting in a beautiful part of spain.

having spent a month in your wonderful villa-a major part of our holiday enjoyment-was coming home after a long day out, to enjoy the facilities provided,particularly the pool. Indeed we even

managed to sneak in a few days staying in at base camp !!

A wonderful experience.

Owner's Response: It's such a pleasure to know that our guests feel the villa is their home. We want them to do that as soon as they step through the front door. We try to provide everything to make sure every stay is easy and relaxing. The pool is lovely - it's big enough for a real swim and very refreshing on a hot day or after a day away sightseeing. Many of our guests choose to return and it's always a pleasure to see familiar faces again.

A holiday to remember in a fabulous spacious villa with fabulous sunrise and sunset views

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned home from this wonderful villa and quickly wanted to share our review for future visitors. We arrived with a party of six, 5 adults and a tiny 3 month old, and were greeted by Anna, who updated us on everything we needed to know about the villa. A welcome pack was provided which was greatly appreciated. My son and I came to enjoy the golf and this villa is literally 2 minutes from the first tee and clubhouse and Karen's bar, which serves some excellent no nonsense food. The drive to Vera Playa beach and Consum supermarket (Excellent) is approx 15 minutes and scenic. It was great to have an audience when teeing off at the 8th as our fellow party members overlooked from the villa's top terrace. Pool is a proper swimming pool and a good temperature when the temperatures were constantly pushing 30 degrees for our full 17 night stay. Takes your breath when you get in but if you use the outside shower first you are well prepared. The villa is very secure and well lit in the evening and is fully alarmed. But Valle del Este resort is very safe and I doubt if the alarm has ever gone off in anger. A very special thank you Gill for a wonderful holiday and we will be coming back. Already looking at flights and availability for next year as we are planning to visit twice again during 2017. Best Regards Jeanie & Rae.

comfort, convenience and quiet!

  • 5 of 5

Very well equipped and spacious villa with every comfort you could want. There were packs of playing cards, games, DVD's, books, BBQ ... all making for a 'home from home' stay.We have stayed at Valle del Este over 30 times in the past 11 years and this villa is an excellent place to stay especially if travelling with friends/ family, where space is a necessity at times. The small welcome pack of milk, water, wine and biscuits was much appreciated. Anna explained everything we needed to know about the place. The villa overlooks the 8th tee and is in walking distance to the hotel and commercial centre. Although this centre has never been that successful (there was only one restaurant/ bar open during our stay), usually from April to October there is at least one other eatery that opens. Try eating at the Truck Stop just off the roundabout at the exit of VdE...great value! Golf is always a test of courage here, and it was good to see some improvements being made to the tees and paths...it is a wonderful course to play, but not for the faint hearted! Try Aguilon at San Juan de los Toreros...a 30 minute drive up the coast...another great course. We would definitely stay at this villa again...hopefully in warmer weather when we can use the inviting pool!

Owner's Response: We are very pleased you enjoyed your stay at our villa and played the lovely golf course - it is a challenging course. It always looks good and is well maintained. Other golfers have combined staying at our villa as part of a golf tour of the region too, every course is very different. We would agree that the Truck Stop is worth trying, the tapas are good. Thank you for your review and we hope to welcome you again.

Fantastic property

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous 2 weeks here. The property was spotless, our arrival was really well managed by Anna, the property manager over there. The villa is really spacious and very well equipped. The pool is a perfect size and allows for 'proper' swimming as well as playing. It feels very private and safe so great for families. The air conditioning was a real godsend with us being there in August. The golf course restaurants and bars are just a short walk away, but there are also lots of places to eat within a short drive away, as are the supermarket. We enjoyed the aquapark and the beaches, but also spent a lot of time at the villa; it was better than a home from home!

The booking process was easy and Gill responded to emails quickly and efficiently and provided any information that we needed. The only constructive feedback that we would give would be that some kind of parasol/sun shade by the downstairs outside seating area would have been appreciated.

We had a truly wonderful holiday and would not hesitate to recommend this property to people who are after a 'getting away from it all' holiday.

Top quality villa!!

  • 5 of 5

Hi Gill,

We had an amazing holiday thankyou, at your fabulous villa! We thoroughly enjoyed all the facilities you offer, especially the pool and the air con! And it was so peaceful, we just chilled. Too hot for golf. We enjoyed the area in general, the towns and the markets all of which were new to us.

Despite your concerns we found all Uk channels by changing from Sky to "antenna" input and working through the Spanish channels. Not sure if you have just arranged this or whether you need to inform future guests. Our only disappointment was a walk to "The 19th Hole" in the Commercial Centre. The food was very poor and not cheap. The lowlight being tinned meatballs in gravy with a few chips sprinkled on top and, if I remember, rightly15 euros for 12 Prawns on a plate!

If I could make one suggestion it would be for a better barbeque, with a lid because of the breeze, and even better, gas, for convenience. We eat in most nights and it was a bit of a struggle to barbeque. The kitchen however was excellent.

Overall though we had a super time and having stayed in many villas over the years, yours is the best we have come across. Thankyou.

Owner's Response: Hi Nick Many thanks for your comments, we are so pleased you had an amazing holiday. And it's great to hear that our villa is the best! We're also very glad, and extremely impressed, that you managed to find the UK channels through the Spanish ones. Yes, it is hot for golf right now. We would love to welcome you back to our villa, maybe when the weather is cooler, April, May and September to December are good for golf. There are other golf courses in the area within an easy driving distance which make for a great golfing holiday. Gill PS We will look our for a barbecue with a lid!

everything you need for a perfect holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful, relaxing holiday. It was so peaceful.

Vera, Garrucha and Mojacar are only a short drive away. We visited the local markets and brought fruit and veg of such good quality. It is lovely to experience the real Spain, not just a tourist resort. We have stayed in this area before and love it.

This villa doesn't disappoint. It is a spacious, well thought out home. The lovely pool was used every day. The weather fantastic.

Thank you Gill and Ana, who were both so friendly and helpful.

Owner's Response: We are so pleased you had a lovely time. Vera and the surrounding villages are indeed a taste of the real Spain. I love the beaches in summer with the chattering Spanish families and lunches in the chiringitos where the fish is always excellent along with a cold beer or chilled glass of tasty Spanish white wine. Mmm - I'm there now!
