Large private villa with secure enclosed private pool set in over an acre.



Updated: 29-Sep-2016
5 bed villa in Murcia, Balsicas, Costa Calida, Spain-easily suits 2 families or larger group.

Formerly a small Spanish Finca, this serene property has been extended into a large and luxurious villa with 5 spacious bedrooms, 4 of which enjoy en-suite facilities and air-conditioning. There is a very well equipped kitchen that includes a dishwasher among other homely amenities. The private pool has a generous terrace area with sun loungers, outdoor shower and a large rattan day bed for relaxing. The villa is very private with access via electric gates. The sizeable gardens are laid to gravel and well maintained. Outside dining is available via a large round rattan dining table that comfortably seats 10, plus there is a 10 seater chill-out area with rattan furniture to enjoy evening drinks. The villa is in close proximity to the calm and shallow waters of Mar Menor, which is a natural lagoon - ideal for children and young families. The local cities of Murcia and Cartagena are beautiful places to visit, steeped in history, with the Cathedral in Murcia being an extremely popular attraction. Golf lovers in particular are spoilt for choice being just 5 minutes from Polaris World’s 18 hole golf course just a five minute drive away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Having just returned from your villa in Murcia a few days ago,

I would just like to send you a message on behalf of the Williams party to thank you very much for an excellent property. The villa and pool were both outstanding, and we were amazed at the amount of space available to us all around the grounds - enough to play football and rounders when it wasn't too hot! The beaches nearby were excellent and easy to find, the weather glorious, and the holiday was made more memorable due to the outstanding quality of the accomodation. Please thank Allan and Jean on our behalf for all their help after we arrived. The villa was very well equiped and the property is really fantastic. We will be telling all of our friends. - The Williams party.

Hot Spacious Bliss

  • 5 of 5

It was not only the weather that mad our stay so memorable.

The villa and its grounds was a place you could spread out and relax in the warm sunshine. Whether breakfast round the outside table, or afternoons and late nights under the pergola. For us the remoteness suited us perfectly. The pool was large very clean and well looked after, it had plenty room for all ten of us swim or have pool games.

The villa itself was also large enough for all of us, stacks of kitchen utensils and equipment. Living area with large couches, and the five bedrooms. If returning to the Murcia area we would most definite consider this villa again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We're glad that you had a great time at the villa and enjoyed the space and the peace it offers. We shall pass on the comments about the pool to Maxine, she works very hard all year round to keep the pool at its very best. We've worked over the last couple of years to make the accommodation as comfortable as possible, and hope that you feel it is a home away from home. The rural setting is great with amenities only a short drive away. We look forward to having you as guests again next year should you choose to return again.

A very comfortable and spacious villa

  • 5 of 5

Vicky and Ray have been very welcoming and have provided lots of useful information for visiting nearby places. The beach situated on the Mar Menor is only 15 minutes away although there are many to choose from. Murcia and Cartagena are beautiful towns to explore. The Villa was immaculate, well resourced and the pool maintained excellently. Perfect for small, large or multiple families.

Excellent holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at this villa. Two families totalling 4 adults and 4 children. The pool was immaculate and looked after twice a week by Maxine and Allan was always on hand should we have any issues. It is a bit rural, but as long as you have a car you can get anywhere!! We spent alternate days by the pool or La Manga reaches or Santiago de la Ribera. The local spar on the golf complex La Torrie is only 10 mins away and not too expensive as the Euro is so good at the moment but Dos Mares (30 mins away) is fabulous, even got myself some cheap RayBans!

Fantastic family holiday

  • 5 of 5

The villa was wonderful so much space both inside and outside of villa. The pool area was absolutely fabulous and so secure as it was gated. Which made it completely safe for our two grandsons aged seven and two. The villa was also gated which also added to the sense of security Allen was on hand almost immediately to change the gas bottle when the gas ran out. We found it a little rural although with a car there was plenty of places to visit It was an ideal villa and location for a family holiday. You could not help to switch off. I would certainly recommend this villa to family and friends

Villa in Gea-y-Truyols, Balsicas

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay at this villa. It provided a fantastic setting for a family holiday. The villa was very clean spacious and well equipped. We couldn't ask for more. The large pool was a real asset and a definite winner, enough room for everyone. The large gardens provided lots of space for playing games and the two patio areas were great for relaxing and enjoying a cool drink. The location is a bit rural but this is far outweighed by the wonderful peace and quiet and the privacy. Sitting on the patio in the evening was just heaven and seeing the stars when it went dark was fantastic.

The supermarket Dos Mares (close by) provides a huge choice at reasonable prices and the local supermarket to buy fresh bread etc was a short drive away.

Allan and Jean were fantastic. They were attentive and fixed one or two minor problems immediately; nothing was too much trouble for them. Their local knowledge was really helpful.

We would have no hesitation in booking this villa again, it’s a real winner!

Fantastic Property

  • 5 of 5

We had a brilliant stay at this Villa. It was spacious and comfortable inside and the grounds outside were just brilliant; fantastic weather, a lovely pool and lots of space for playing with the children.

The beaches were beautiful and not too far to travel and Murcia was stunning. I would recommend this to anyone!
