About the property

About Vince and Jan

We are Vince and Jan, we moved out here 2 years ago, and have loved every minute of it. We have five Children and one Grandson, all but one are back in the UK, although they do visit us every year (more than once). One Daughter lives near us and manages an Irish Bar.

Why Vince and Jan chose Cartagena & Mar Menor

We planned to move to Spain 8 years ago, and after looking at many areas, we fell in love with Los Alcazares, we purchased this block of 2 apartments, we rent out 1 and live in the other.

One of our priorities was to live near the beach, and this we have achieved, it wasn't easy as they are hard to come by, but we were lucky as this property came on the market at the time we were looking.

Los Alcazares isn't a night club area, it is quite quiet, although in July and August the Spanish come from the cities for their holidays, but it is a more sedate way of life, they like the beach and to relax in the restaurants.

What makes this apartment unique

The obvious benefits about living here is the sun, and the sea being a stones through away, means we enjoy having a daily dip. Living in a Spanish community also means our Spanish is coming along a lot quicker, although we also attend Spanish lessons 2 nights a week, and our neighbours are very understanding when we get things wrong.

We can't imagine ever leaving here, we think we have found our paradise and have never been happier.

We like meeting the people that come to rent our apartment, and it is great to see them enjoying Los Alcazares as much as us.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have just come back from a very enjoyable holiday in this quality Apartment, every need is catered for by our charming hosts. A lovely Apartment awaits your arrival, very comfortable and surprisingly roomy, superbly situated near the seafront with bars and restaurants very close by. The resort itself is very pleasant with nice safe beaches. I highly recommend this Apartment for a break, you won't be disappointed. Thanks Vince and Jan.

Très bel appartement

  • 5 of 5

Très bon séjour dans un bel et grand appartement. Propre, confortable et calme, l'équipement de la cuisine, de la salle de bain et des chambres et complet et fonctionnel. Pas exactement simple à trouver lorsqu'on n'est pas habitué aux ruelles étroites du quartier, mais emplacement finalement charmant et très proche des plages et des sentiers côtiers. Propriétaires discrets, arrangeants et sympathiques. Nous reviendrons sans problème si l'occasion se représente.

Car: not necessary


The Beautiful Sandy Beach of the Mar Menor is Less than 1 minute walk away, the sea is shallow and a few degrees (5c) warmer than the Mediterranean, a lovely place to sit and watch the boats coming out of the marina very close by. Bars and beach bars (in season) are scattered along the beach. Beach beds with straw shaders are available at the local chiringuito (beach bar)


Murcia Airport (MJV) is about 10 minutes away by car, Car hire can be easily arranged at the airport, although we do pick ups and drop offs if you do not wish to hire a car, and if you just want a relaxing beach holiday a car is not necessary. We can also take you to the Supermarket, so you can stock up on all your needs for your holiday.


Although we are close to the beach we are also in the town of Los Alcazares, so everything you need is within walking distance, there is a street market every Tuesday where you can purchase items from food to gifts. It is very popular and a must for your holiday itinerary, Los Alcazares Town is very old and has churches and other places of interest to visit. There is a natural coast line that is a haven for wild life, and you will have plenty of interesting walks if you so desire.

Further Details:

Being in the town has many benefits, shops supplying you with all your culinary needs, the small super market with deli, butcher, fishmonger, and a walk away is a large supermarket. If you are not planning to self cater, there are numerous restaurants, mainly Spanish, but there are also Chinese, Morrocan, Indian and Italian, and if you are feeling home sick a 25 minute walk will take you to an English Community where you can have traditional meals, including a roast on Sundays, live music and can watch the football, there are now 3 Irish Bars, one of which does a lovely Full English Breakfast.
