Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi, just thought we'd drop you a few lines to say we had a wonderful time in Murcia, at you beautiful villa. We were off the plane and in the villa within 40 minutes of landing. It was 35 or above every day and we only saw 3 drops of rain in the entire 10 days. Our children lived in the plunge pool for the 1st 4 days (in fact on the 1st day Phoebe swam for 6 hours!), until we found the site pool and then we split our time between the 2. We went to Aqua Natura as well, they gave us some free Mcdonalds vouchers, however after failing to find the towns or resturants named on them, we left them on your book shelves for you or the next occupants. We managed to win the Thursday night quiz in the Clover with a team of 2, we won 40 Euros so that was a bonus! Anyway, just to say thanks very much and hopefully we'll contact you again at some point in the future to book another stay. kind regards, Rachel, Stephen, Cameron & Phoebe

Another wonderful holiday.

  • 5 of 5

This was our fourth year at Mar Menor Golf Resort and we have stayed in this accommodation each time. It is a very well kept villa both inside and outside and is situated in a very desirable location on the resort. It is a very short walking distance to the supermarket and restaurants and the golfing facilities although my family were not playing golf.

Fantastic villa in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

The villa was just perfect and ideal for what our family (2 adults & 2 kids – aged 3 and 11) needed during our two-week Spanish holiday during August 2016. From the owner’s directions to the finishing touches, make it extra special with 'welcome food packs' (if required) which come in handy when arriving later than 9pm with kids, dressing gowns, a '5 star' water cooler, beach & bath towels and welcome toiletry bags (including slippers) in both bedrooms.

The villa is as described, clean and in an excellent condition. It had all the amenities that we needed. The lounge has an air-conditioning unit that is effective and comforting after a long day in the sun. The bedrooms have ceiling fans to keep you cool throughout the night. The pool is amazing and is just the right size to cool off in. There are even some beach/pool toys for the kids and great loungers for the adults.

There are larger communal pools for adults and kids in the social club area and the resort even had its own Spar store which makes amazing ‘rustic baguettes’ on a daily basis. There are various sports offered by the hotel and there is also a small park/play area for the younger kids. There are some nice restaurants within walking distance of the resort and even better one’s bit further away - 15 mins by car. The villa is located 15 mins from Murcia- San Javier airport and you can visit some great beaches / places within 25 mins by car.

The owners – Trisha and Neil Hobson provide an excellent service and remain in constant contact with you prior to departure and nothing is too much trouble for them. They have an English speaking local managing agent who assists you at the villa if required. The directions the provided to us by email (to/from the airport-villa) were extremely accurate and made the night time navigation very easy.

Thank you both for allowing us to stay at your villa and we would definitely recommend this property to a friend or family member and we will definitely look to return next year.

Another wonderful holiday!

  • 5 of 5

This is the third holiday my family have enjoyed in this property and that probably says it all! It is a very high standard of accommodation and Trish takes an obvious pleasure in maintaining this standard and ensuring the needs of her guests are well catered for. This year we were each provided with a very generous bathroom pack which was much appreciated and helpful in keeping the liquids bag for the flight a bit lighter! The kitchen is exceptionally well equipped for a fully self catering holiday although we tended to eat in the many good restaurants on-site and in the surrounding area. Trish has also provided a new barbeque at the villa so there are many options available. The villa is located on a very convenient site - close to the golf club, the supermarket and on-site restaurants. It is also walking distance to "the strip" just outside the resort where there are a number of bars and restaurants - Flavour is a particular favourite. The weather during our stay was glorious and we spent many happy hours on the beach in Los Alcazares with our little grandson after breakfast in L'Encarnacion - orange juice, coffee and tomato bread by the sea! Highly recommended! All in all another wonderful holiday and many thanks to Trish for once again being so helpful and accommodating.

Brilliant stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a brilliant stay at this lovely villa in September this year. Beautiful resort, lovely and cosy villa, very good location, close to amenities. A beautiful beach, in Los Alcazares, is 10 minutes away- driving. We spent most of our evenings there, enjoying the sea, long walks on the promenade, cocktails and lovely meals. I have to mention Rosalinds roof restaurant which was our favourite. Cartagena and Murcia are not too far away from Mar Menor, we travelled by train, quick, comfortable and cheap. Beautiful cities, plenty to visit! We could have hired bikes to go to diffent places and explore the resort, but it was a busy month and probably we should have booked them prior coming to Murcia,at the same time when booked the villa. We were lucky to have a very sunny week, spent a lot of time around the pool. The pool was a bonus, big enough to deep in and cool down and have a little swimm, with a spa effect and lightened at night. It was checked and cleaned every day. We had so much fun, enjoyed the sun and rest a lot. The villa was provided with everything we needed and Trisha and the resort personnel were amazing! Loved it so much that we decided to go there every year! Hope Trish won't mind 😉!

A highly recommended property.

  • 5 of 5

This was the second year we have rented this property and for very good reasons. We have been very impressed on both occasions by the thought and effort that has gone into equipping and maintaining the villa. Although we didn't cook very often during our stay (there are many really good restaurants in the area) anyone preferring to self cater will find it a very easy option. The kitchen is very well equipped not just with pans and crockery etc but the little things that matter like tin foil/cling film/cooking oil/washing up liquid - whatever we needed Trisha had thought of it. The property is obviously well-loved; it is very well maintained both inside and out. We again enjoyed the plunge pool - it's a great feature and such a good use of the space. We had some very hot days and really appreciated having it available to us. This villa is in a very desirable location on the resort - a few minutes walk to the Golf Bar (where we enjoyed many morning coffees and lunches), the supermarket, the hotel and resort restaurants. The last word goes to Trisha - she is so helpful in every way and deals with things in a very friendly, informal way. She has made us feel so welcome and it is certainly our intention to return. This property is highly recommended in all respects.

Owner's Response: Carole Many thanks for your review and kind comments. We do look at the feedback and try to ensure whether there is anything that can be improved upon. There will be a smart tv and bbq for 2016 and anything else I think of, also have just refurbished bed linen, pillows, cushions etc., I must be the only person I know that when can't sleep gets up at 3 in the morning and polishes the furniture and cleans the leather sofa. Good job Australian food programme was on. Kind regards Trisha

Another great stay at this lovely villa

  • 5 of 5

Having stayed at this Villa in July, I did not hesitate to book it again for a short break during school mid term holiday in October. We enjoyed it just as much and can't wait to return.
