Great location, lovely apartment

  • 5 of 5

There were 4 of us - 2 adults and 2 children aged 7 & 9. We stayed for 10 days end July/ start of August and had a fantastic holiday. The apartment suited us perfectly, it had everything we needed, was clean and comfortable, and is on a lovely complex with 2 great pools and lovely gardens. We spent a lot of time at the pool closest to the apartment as it was a perfect depth for the children, the other pool with the bar being a bit deeper. The beach, restaurants and bars were only a 5 min walk away and if you wanted to go to Garrucha it was a pleasant 15min walk along the promenade or there was a little land train for a few euros which the kids loved. We took the bus to Mojacar a couple of times, which has amazing views, lovely restaurants and lots of gift shops. We travelled from and to the airport with Exclusive airport shuttles who were very reasonable and reliable, and we didn't feel the need for a hire car. There was a small shop with all the essentials between the apartment and the beach, which we found that reasonably priced. There were things to do nearby like a water park but mostly we were happy to relax and play by the pool or on the beach. Great communication with the owners - Nuala was just wonderful and made sure we had everything we needed. Would recommend it, we didn't want to leave we had such a good time!

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
