About the Owner
Hi my name is Mark, I'm a Engineer from Manchester. I really enjoy going on holiday with my family and getting away from it all. After years of traveling to various places around Europe, I finally found a place in the sun that really suits us.

fab appt overlooking pool and spotless
My husband my 12 year old son my 8 year old daughter and I had a fab 12 day stay in this appt. It was close to beaches, big supermarkets and local towns. We did hire a car and think this would be advisable to move around.. The pool, gardens and appts were spotlessly clean and nice and quiet.... We would definitely return next year and would have no problem recommending it to family and friends....
An absolutely lovely apartment with every amenity
I stayed here with my 2 young boys and we had such a lovely relaxing time due to how close the apartment is situated to the pool, gym, hot tub and underground parking.
The secure apartment complex provides piece of mind. The complex is impeccably maintained too.
The apartment was lovely & clean and had a lot of additional amenities not mention by Mark in the listing.
Mark could not have been more helpful in the booking process even with the 100 questions I had!!!
Thank you :-)
Lovely apartment in Vera Playa
My wife and I enjoyed our two week stay in this first floor apartment in the Andalucia Veranda complex. The apartment was ideally located opposite the pool, gardens and access to the underground car park. Everything was clean, tidy and provided all we needed for the holiday. The Consum supermarket and Water park are about a 10-15 minute walk although I would recommend hiring a car to see local places of interest, beaches etc.
Wonderful apartment in a beautiful part of Spain.
My family had the bestest time here and hugely enjoyed our time in Vera :)
The complex is lovely and relaxing with a nice mixture of friendly Spanish families and British holiday makers alike. The pool area was never crowded and and the grounds well maintained. It's in a truly brilliant spot and having a car meant we could dip in and out of local more busier scenes as and when we wanted, alongside lazy poolside days.
In fact we ventured in every direction from the beautiful San Juan beach, Garrucha port, Mojacar town and Fort Bravo in the desert where we've never quite felt heat like it! We also got a value deal pass for the water park which was a big hit with the children and only five minutes away in the car. (I'd say a car is essential to make the most of your stay).
The apartment itself had everything we needed for a comfortable stay and the bonus of having two bathrooms was great with the children. We really hope to return to this beautiful spot that gives you the best of both worlds.
From the Owner
“Having never been to main land Spain (we've had many holidays in the Balearic islands), myself and family spent a two week holiday in Almeria in 2006. We immediately fell in love with the area, people and weather on offer here. The climate is fantastic (apparently the best in Europe), the sun always seems to shine (I've been at various times of the year - Easter, half term, Summer, October, etc). The beauty of it is, that although its hot (especially in August), there always seems to be a nice breeze, which is ideal both for me and my two children. The number of beaches is incredible and they all seem to have their own unique personality. Some are busy, with a great deal of facilities (waves, body boarding ect.) and others are very remote and quiet.”

The 6.8km of long wide, white sandy beaches with clean, crystal clear water of Vera Playa is only 10 mins walk away. With full facilities and local chiringuitos open in summer months. Within a 20 mins drive north or south of the resort, there are numerous coves and stunning beaches which are all easily accessible.

From the Owner
“After months & months of apartment hunting, I finally found a lovely 2 bedroom/2 bathroom apartment on a small complex in Playa Vera called Veranda. This apartment was always bought primary, as a holiday home for my family to spend years of quality time there. It's only recently, after owning it for three years that I've started to rent it out. The apartment is ideally located on the complex, and the reason I choose it was because it overlooked the pool & Spa. With having two young children, I found it so convenient, simply to walk down to the pool and have easy access to the apartment, when required. You'll find the complex is quiet, relaxing and is located close to the local beach. Supermarkets, bars/resturants and Almeria's waterpark are all within easy walking distance.”
