gem in Garrucha
Thank you for your lovely review. So glad we could help you out and its always great to hear that our guests enjoyed their stay. We have tried to make our property as inviting as possible as, from our own previous experience, there is nothing worse than arriving to find cold, basically furnished and equipped accommodation. We are also very lucky to have such wonderful property managers who always make our guests welcome and are pleased to offer help and information to make their stay more enjoyable. We do hope to see you again in the future.
About the Owner
I live in Maidenhead and work as an Office Manager for a film lighting company. I have a son and daughter and three grandchildren who keep me on my toes. I hope to retire within the next 5 years and intend to spend at least nine months of the year in Almeria. I am preparing myself by learning Spanish at the moment. I am looking forward to living in Spain and becoming a fosterer for the PAWS animal charity in Mojacar, who do a wonderful job of rescuing and re-homing animals in the area. I also intend to join a few of the many local expat clubs, so expect to have quite a busy and interesting retirement!

Recently been there to stay for 1 week, excellent location, close to the beach, restaurants, bars and shops. The apartment has lots of space with everything you need. There is also a wonderful sunny and spacious roof terrace ideal for sunbathing. Friendly residents within the complex and loved the use of the two pools on site. We will be coming back! - J Mooc 21/9/09

We stayed for 3 weeks over the summer and had the most fantastic holiday! The house was perfectly located for us - 5 min walk to the most gorgeous sandy beach, 15 min walk to the town of Garrucha, 30 second walk to a mini supermarket that sells everything you need. We didn't hire a car so the location was everything to us. We didn't want to come home!!!
Beautiful house in an excellent location
We have recently returned from a 2 week stay at this lovely house. It is extremely well located being a 5 minute walk to the nearest beach and just over a mile into Garrucha itself along the paseo. There are numerous bars and restaurants within walking distance too.
The house itself is beautiful, modern furnishings and extremely well maintained with everything you could or need. We were very grateful for the air conditioning and the WiFi was a real bonus.
The complex is securely gated with additional gates enclosing the pool areas so it's very safe for young children to play outside. The whole complex is very peaceful and well maintained. The pools are very clean and there was a lifeguard in attendance from 10am till 10pm.
The water park and the go karting are 5 minutes drive away, as is Garrucha itself. Mojacar and Vera are about 10 minutes drive away. It's also a great base to explore some of the fantastic inland villages where traditional Spanish life is still very much in evidence.
I'd go back tomorrow if I could.
Beautiful house in Garrucha
My family & I stayed in this house the second 2 weeks of August.
The house is impeccable throughout, very modern & tastefully decorated. From initial booking through to the end of the holiday I have found the owner June very helpful. Communication has been 1st class. (My deposit was refunded within a week of my return)
The house, as well as being beautiful, is located on a lovely complex which is nice & quiet, ideal for families & couples,with 2 lovely pools & additional baby pool.
The location is in Garrucha, just along from Mojacar. The beach is a 5 minute walk away as well as the promenade which stretches a couple of miles with childrens play areas & restaurants along the way as well as night markets. The water park was a mere 5 minutes in the car.
My family & I absolutely loved our holiday which was helped by the location & property itself.
I would definitely recommend this house & if I am to book a holiday in Spain next year this is the property I would choose.
Stayed here for 2 weeks in August, not for the first time. A lovely homely place, very well equipped and clean. The complex has a safe setting and great shared swimming pools. Within walking distance from some great beaches, nice local facilities yet still unspoilt with some great local villages and markets not too far away, and if you have children a trip to the water park just 5 minutes away is a must.
From the Owner
“We looked at a few areas along the Spanish coast but as soon as we arrived in Almeria loved the feel of the place. Not as commercialised as other areas, lovely mountain drives with great scenery, roads which are a pleasure to drive on and not full of traffic, lots of unspoilt beaches and very easy to park, with no parking charges! Still has a very Spanish feel wth lots of Spanish fish restaurants and tapas bars as well as a variety of other nationality cuisines. Ideal for a relaxing holiday to really chill out.”
Activity and Interests
The property benefits from some of the finest sandy blue flag beaches with lifeguards and are only a short 5 minutes walk away. There is a beach shop and restaurants along the seafront and to the right, the palm tree lined promenade makes a very pleasant 15 minute stroll into Garrucha town. To the left the beach stretches along the Vera Playa coast.

The Vera water park is situated less than 5 minutes by car or there is an hourly bus service to most of the surrounding areas from a bus stop just outside.

From the Owner
“The house is positioned quite centrally and is within easy walking distance of Garrucha and a short drive from Vera, Vera Playa and Mojacar. There is also a regular bus service from just outside for those without a car. There are also supermarkets, bars and restaurants, all within easy walking distance from the property so you don't have to worry about driving home. The complex has a good mixture of Spanish and British residents and is very friendly. We have met some lovely people there, both residents and holidaymakers. Our property managers are very friendly and helpful and meet all our guests on arrival at the house. They live locally and are always on hand should you need them.”
