About the property

Villa in La Manga Club, Costa Calida, Spain - Peaceful, Modern, Air-Conditioned within walking distance of Club facilities FREE WiFI

We have a beautiful villa in a prime position in El Rancho with outstanding full panoramic sea and south golf course views. It is set in mature, landscaped gardens and has private rear steps to the gardens and pools. Pool 8 is only 10 yards from the rear of our villa and Pool 9 just 35 yards from the rear of our villa, both pools have children's paddling pools, parasols, sun beds and showers. There is a grassed area between the pools, ideal for children to play. The villa is spacious, light, airy and peaceful, fully UPVC double glazed, fully air-cond. in summer and heated in winter with recently installed Newlec radiators and a gas fire. It is very tastefully furnished and extensively equipped. During the spring 2017 the villa was updated, refurbished and redecorated throughout. New interior Porcelanosa floor tiles were laid and the rear terrace, bench seating and steps up to the roof terrace had new non-slip Porcelanosa tiles. The rear terrace is a superb dining/sunbathing area and has a built in BBQ. It has a large dining table, 8 chairs with cushions, a large parasol, bench seating and sun beds. The wonderful view of the Mar Menor and South golf course is enjoyed from the rear and roof terraces and from the living room, master bedroom and bedroom 2. Unlike other villas in El Rancho, we have an additional front terrace, ensuring you can enjoy sunshine at any time of the day or evening. It has an awning, table, chairs and cushions and makes a perfect alternative for outdoor dining. It has bougainvilleas, geranium pots, a fig tree and a pretty rockery garden. There are double doors from the open plan, extended living/dining room to all terraces. The living room has a new wall mounted 48" Digital TV/Sky with all sports channels and a DVD player, four seater leather sofa, leather recliner chairs, scatter cushions and a coffee table. The kitchen is ultra modern, with a large archway through to the dining table. The Master bedroom has been extended with a large alcove for a cot/Z bed and there is a light, dividing curtain. There is a computer desk and chair in the alcove. The bedroom has a wall mounted 39" Digital TV/Sky with all channels,

About Kate Mustin

After many happy holidays in El Rancho, we purchased this lovely villa in June 2012. We wanted a home within a gated community and in a prime location within walking distance of all club amenities.

We have children with grandchildren who love coming to stay, whether to play golf and tennis, walk or paddle in the childrens' pools. The views of the Mar Menor & south golf course are magnificent. We are told we have the best view in El Rancho and its position gives a feeling of space and quietness on the terraces, yet it overlooks two pools and the gardens, so you can always keep an eye on the children. The villa is ideal for singles, couples and families.

During the past years, we have made several major improvements, both to the inside and outside of the villa and can now assure our friends and guests of all home comforts and everything a family could wish for.

We very much hope that everyone who stays with us will enjoy a wonderful holiday and return to us again.

Kate Mustin.

Fabulous stay in this lovely villa

  • 5 of 5

We have just spent another week at Kate’s superb villa in El Rancho, La Manga.

The villa has everything you would need for a relaxing stay. It is spotlessly clean and comfortable.

I love the books to borrow as well as the inflatables and other items available to use by the pool- a great touch. We also have a BBQ 2-3 times during our stay.

We spent several hours at the local natural beach - Cal Blanque . Stunning scenery.

Kate (owner) is excellent at replying promptly to emails. She really does pull out the stops to ensure we enjoy our stay.

We hope to return to the villa next year as we throughly enjoy it - each and every time.

The perfect home from home!

  • 5 of 5

We have just spent our 5th summer holiday at this villa and it just gets better and better. Kate (the owner) has thoughtfully ensured that the property has everything you could wish for, particularly our young family, although it's just as suitable for a group of friends or a family with older children too.

We always found the villa to be immaculate. The views and location are perfect and I never tire of our holidays there.

We've enjoyed many good meals in the nearby restaurants including Luigi's and Los Molinos.

We can't wait to return next year!

Lovely villa in peaceful location

  • 5 of 5

We were very comfortable at this villa. UK tv was a bonus. At the end of the season it was very peaceful and no-one else using the pool area. Some advice to other travellers: You would definitely need a car as there is no bus service from within the resort. Avoid the Bellaruz supermarket as the one in the resort centre is much better value. Unless you're less than 5 ft tall then bring own beach towels as the ones provided are not very big! However it was useful as a curtain over the ensuite bathroom window which otherwise had no privacy. The pitch & putt course was disappointing as mostly putting & not much pitching! Otherwise absolutely no complaints. Many beautiful beaches in the area. We would stay at this villa again & the owner provided very good communication.

Beautiful villa

  • 5 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed our week in La Manga. Plenty of space for all 8 of us, with a large communal pool and plenty of sun loungers. We went out of season, so it was lovely and quiet and the weather was perfect. Just a short 10 minute walk to the Main Street, with plenty happening. Would recommend a car, a visits out to Mar de Cristal.

Beautiful Villa with amazing view

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at El Racho 46 was a summer we do not forget! Perfect for the children with easy access to the pool. The house was very clean and it was very good with a change of towels and bedsheets mid-way our two week stay. The view from the house is amazing!

Thank you for a great stay at El Rancho 46.

Fabulous, spacious, well-equipped and well-situated accommodation.

  • 5 of 5

We loved the villa from the moment we arrived. The layout was excellent and at no time did we feel like we were living 'on top of' the other family who we were sharing with.

The property had a good location within the resort and position in terms of the views and sun.

The facilities within the property were first-class. The Sky channels and WIFI were particular hits!

All in all I cannot recommend the villa enough.

There is a pretty Marina with excellent sea food restaurants and a Scuba Diving Centre in Cabo de Palos, only 10 from La Manga Club.

The Port and Roman Theatre & Museum in Cartagena are certainly a must for sight sightseers.
