Enjoyed our stay

  • 4 of 5

Well-equipped, clean, apartment in a beautifully maintained holiday complex with a lovely pool area, with plenty of sun loungers/umbrellas. Apartment is close to beach with good bars and restaurants. Mojacar Playa, a short drive away, is well worth a visit.

Apartment in Vera Beach

  • 3 of 5

Beautiful complex with two outdoor pools although one closed during our 2nd week. The apartment was spacious and extremely well-equipped. The owner gave us plenty of information before we left about the complex, the surrounding area and the property. There were plenty of restaurants within easy walking distance, both on the beachfront and near Las Bouganvillas roundabout. We found a new one this season on the front called The Bistro, a family run concern. They were extremely friendly and welcoming and did an amazing three course menu for 12.75 euros.

We did discover a problem with the buses - from 19 September they started their winter timetable and twice we got caught as they had cut out the last two buses and we had to get taxis. No-one we asked knew anything about this.

All in all we had an extremely enjoyable holiday.

Owner's Response: Thanks again for booking with us, in Spain for some reason they consider that winter starts in Mid September when its usually in the late 20's to 30 degrees.. Glad you enjoyed the apartment and thanks for the feedback. Also thanks for the recommendation, we haven't tried that one Nuala & Gary

Great home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is located on ground floor in a 2-storey building, close to the swimming pool but not immediately opposite it, which makes the location both quiet and convenient. It's spacious, has easily enough space for family of four, and consists of a large and well equipped kitchen with living room, a hall with wardrobes providing lots of storage space, a good size bedroom and a bathroom with bath and shower. There is a surprisingly comfy sofa bed in the living room, as well as a proper 4-place table with chairs.

The apartment is very well equipped, from the kitchen having full hob and oven, washing machine, to pans, pots and plates, to utensils like bottle openers or screwdrivers; the only thing you might wish for in the kitchen would be a dishwasher, but honestly-who needs a dishwasher on holiday? The air conditioning works very well, helped by ceiling fans, which was a relief in the 33+ degrees heat. There is no wi-fi in the apartment, but walk 20 yards towards the reception or go to the pool bar and here you go. Unlike most of the "holiday wi-fis" I experienced, the one in the complex actually WORKS and you have what you want in seconds rather than half-hours. The password is available at the reception or the bar. One other thing worth commending is the boiler, which, with a family of three, never ran out of hot water.

The Vera Coast complex is a fenced holiday home complex, reminiscent of aparthotels although offering a bit more freedom. Two outdoor pools (one with salty water and a bar, the other one free-shaped with fresh water) offer plenty for someone who likes their days spent on a sunbed with drinks :). We had bees in the bum, so, though pretty they are, we didn't use the pools much. There is also a restaurant on site (can't grade it as never used this one) and a couple others nearby, as well as a local shop 2 minutes away. The complex is located near the sea, in a quiet quarter, and you can walk to the beach in about 5 minutes.

The owners were communicative and lovely to deal with. I loved the short guide they prepared and left in the drawer, of all the basics you may want to know - what's where, how to get around, and where they think it's worth going. So thank you for letting us know about the beaches past the Castillo Macenas (our favourite ever) and Cortijo Cabrera :).

To sum it up, this was a lovely holiday - helped a great deal by the quality and features of our accommodation. I can only recommend it highly.

A little Gem

  • 5 of 5

We had, what only be describe as a very easy journey to the property, the directions provided by the owner were ideal, We were able to drop our bags off and went to the local Supermarket and were lying by the pool within few hours of landing.

The property is very well appointed and the description is very accurate, it was clean and had everything we required for a two week stay. The ceiling fans were brilliant at keeping us cool in the apartment.

The site is lovely and has two great pools one with a bar/restaurant , there were plenty of beds and umbrellas.

The owner had provide a summary of the local area and there are plenty of shops, restaurant's and bars locally but we found the car invaluable allowing us to explore the area as well as sunbathe.

I would recommend this property to friends and family and the area is wonderful.

Many thanks Nuala and Gary

Lovely relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5

Just returned today and wanted to write a review whilst it is fresh in my mind! The apartment was really nice, clean and comfortable. It was so nice to arrive to milk and water in the fridge along with every possible utensil/equipment you would ever need! The apartment was very shaded which meant it was a lovely temperature to walk into (even in 33 degree heat) we very rarely needed the air con or the ceiling fans during our stay. Nuala was amazingly helpful throughout booking, provided us with fantastic info and recommendations, responded to emails quickly and made sure that everything ran smoothly.

The complex was just beautiful, pristine gardens, lovely pool - there was only one pool open at the time of our stay as it wasn't peak season but it was plenty (we only saw a handful of people around the pool for the duration). It also had sun all day if you are an avid sunbather but also an area to shelter in the shade too.

Plenty of shops and restaurants in easy walking distance, beach was closer than I even imagined, it was also huge and empty and went on for miles! We didn't have car hire for our stay as we didn't really have a need to explore. It certainly wasn't needed if you just plan to relax and have a nice meal out etc, but in the end we chose to walk to Mojacar (it's very far to walk, bad move, catch a bus!) but was still doable! It took us about 4 hours in total to walk there and back due to the heat but plenty of shops and restaurants in Garrucha so not needed unless you wish to explore. We also used 'exclusive airport shuttles' as our transfers to and from the airport who were much cheaper than other companies that we looked at and were extremely reliable.

I traveled with my husband, we are 28 and 32 and just wanted a peaceful escape which is exactly what we got. We didn't see many other 'young' couples in the complex but that suited us fine and we expected as much.

Also just to say, we ate out only 4 times but the food was amazingly in every restaurant we tried, unfortunately I don't remember the names of all but in particular 'Laguna' that is 5 min walk from the apartment was very nice (It is English run but has a wide variety of food), the chinese that was also 5 min walk away, then one of the fish bars at the Marina in Garrucha and a place in between the complex and Garrucha.

Overall it is a lovely area and a lovely comfortable, clean and well equipped apartment. Thank you for a lovely stay!
