About the property

Apartment near Los Urrutias / Los Alcazares, Mar Menor, Costa Calida - Quiet Residential Development, 300m From Sandy Beach And 10 Min Drive From La Manga Golf Resort

Two bedroom, 1 bathroom ground floor apartment with air conditioning, balcony and sun terrace. The private, communal 20m pool is directly in front of apartment (swipe card access only), with a second pool (electronic tag access) and adjacent bar & restaurant 200m away, right by the sandy beach. A children's play area, crazy golf, free tennis courts and basketball court are next to the second pool. The apartment is part of a small urbanisation of privately owned houses and apartments with a couple of restaurants, on the banks of the Mar Menor, Europe's largest salt water lagoon. Los Urrutias village, with a supermarket, general shops and restaurants is a 10 minute walk away. A 15 min drive from San Javier, Murcia airport, there are also numerous golf courses nearby with La Manga resort 10 mins drive away. Ideal for windsurfing and kite-surfing (with a dedicated space, separate from the swimming area, on the private beach), there is also a sailing school available near by.

About Tabitha Randell

We have owned this apartment since 2004 and holiday regularly there. Our children are now teenagers and still find plenty to do whilst we are there. We hope you enjoy staying in our family holiday apartment as much as we do!

Tabitha Randell purchased this apartment in 2004

Why Tabitha Randell chose Cartagena & Mar Menor

Excellent beach for water sports (husband is keen kite surfer) yet perfectly safe for the rest of the family. A comparatively little known area of Spain that is easily accessible from most UK airports using budget airlines.

Every time we go, we discover a new part that we haven't visited before. And you can still find local restaurants that do a tasty, three course meal including wine and bread for 9 Euros!

What makes this apartment unique

Very convenient for the beach, with a pool directly in front of the apartment if you're not keen on sand. There is a second pool and well-maintained tennis courts for use only by local residents 300m away. Two excellent value restaurants a few meters from the apartment. Area not widely known by UK tourists - small local expat community means that quiz night is available if that's your thing, but easy to avoid if it's not.

Apartment Review

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is prefect for a relaxing holiday. 20m pool on your doorstep and a bar/restaurant just around the corner. The beach is only a five minute walk away. The apartment is just outside the town of Los Urrutias, but in saying that, it is only five minutes walk to the supermarket.

There are two other bar/restaurants with a stones throw.

I will definitely go back there again.

Lovely relaxing holiday

  • 4 of 5

Lovely apartment with everything you need for a relaxing beach holiday also has an added advantage of having a pool right on the doorstep. Very quiet beach a few minutes walk away, some local restaurants nearby . A car is needed if you want nightlife ect but if you want a quiet relaxing holiday then this apartment and area is perfect. My family have been for the last three years and are already planning on going again next year
