About Mike Hare

Ola..and Welcome to our Little Oasis on the Costa Calida coastline overlooking the Mar Menor.

My wife Jean, and I had always wanted a "Place in the Sun" and 10 years ago an opportunity arose for us to see that wish through.

We immediately were attracted to the area by the convenience of a 2.5 hour flight, the cosiness of landing at a small but very efficient airport at San Javier - and more importantly the apartment, its positioning and the surroundings, it just felt right.

We have tried to make each of our place's a "home from home" thinking about what would be the perfect place to stay in if we were having a break abroad - and hopefully over the years of us owning them, we would like to think we have done so.

Enjoy the descriptions and pictures - we hope to hear from you.

Mike Hare purchased this apartment in 2004

Why Mike Hare chose Cartagena & Mar Menor

We bought this 2 years prior to Marinesco 2 on the otherside of the Marina - but all for the same reasons.

There really is not a better feeling than getting up in the morning, sliding open the doors, walking out onto a huge ground floor sun terrace, looking over and just seeing all shapes and sizes of boats and yachts literally passing your lounge window.

It might be a little further to walk over to the marina, than Marinesco 2 which is virtually on the marina, but again what a lovely walk over the "swing bridge" stopping every now and again to watch the boats pass you by - coming and going from the Med and The Mar Menor.

What makes this apartment unique

The peace & privacy is noticeable and a plus -

escape the sun at times with full Air Con through out the apartment -

A great modern supermarket on your door step -

Huge Sun Terrace, with various outdoor furniture, which is great for al fresco dining & sun bathing -

Wind out canopies - to give cover & some shade, if you want it, when dining on the terrace -

Free Wifi + Satellite TV with UK Channels, Sky and BT Sport if you need to follow your team or favourite Soap -

Free Welcome Pack, No charge for the Pre Clean or extra linen when using the sofabed.

Free Cot, Highchair & Buggy for the little ones & a couple of bike's to make use of the flat area and region surrounding the "La Manga Strip"

Everything is included in the price - "no hidden add on's"

Guestbook comments from the owner

Date of Stay: Feb & March 2013

The apartment was spotless The view from the sun terrace is just stunning. A great long term stay & looking again for 2014 - P.P.

Date of Stay: May 2013

Just wanted to send a quick email to let you know we all had a brilliant time at La Manga, the apartment was perfect and had everything we needed. Also wanted to say how helpful John was, it was like having a tour guide from the airport.

Date of Stay: May 2013

Could not fault anything. The apartment had everything we could possibly need for a family of four incl. baby. Large terrace was great for sunbathing, and letting our daughter crawl about in complete safety. - S.R

Date of Stay: June 2013

The apartment is amazing and we were delighted at how well equipped, clean, cosy and spacious it was. We could not have asked for more. It was like a home from home and is a credit to Mike & Jean. The views were really wonderful and the huge terrace was perfect for us all. MD.

Fantastic Apartment with large outside space

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is very well equipped, the outside space is amazing, all very clean and tidy. Beach one side of the road and the Mar Menor the other side, Spar supermarket at the end of the block. Very close the The Strip for shops. Lovely Marina, 20 minutes walk away with scrummy places to eat. We hired a car so lots of places to visit and the roads very well marked out and easy to get about. Highly recommend this apartment, a bit quite at the beginning of May but that is how we liked it. We would love to come again. FANTASTIC

Owner's Response: Wow - Thank you so much for such a positive review. We are so pleased that you managed to get out and about, enjoy the area, both locally and regionally. The La Manga Strip and surrounding areas really has so much to see when out, great freshly cooked food and relaxing bars not only on the doorstep of the apartment but scattered up and down the "Strip" all brilliant for some stunning sunsets over a choice of one sea and one Ocean either side. Really pleased the apartment had everything you needed, including free wifi, full sports channels and national British TV channels - and you are right about the outdoor space it is big enough for sun bathing loungers, 2 large tables, great al fresco dining and still enough room to just sit around and watch the world, overlooking the marina entrance, all in comparative privacy. We really hope to see our outgoing family who were kind enough to write the latest review again in the not too distant future. Take care Mike & Jean May 2016

Spacious, well equipped apartment with fab views.

  • 5 of 5

Mike has been very helpful and always responds quickly to any emails. The apartment is in a lovely position, the terrace benefitting from all day sun with a great view over the marina, and is well equipped with patio furniture on a quiet and clean development. All the rooms are a good size, and the U.K. Tv and wifi are great for the dark winter evenings, all included in the very reasonable price. We would happily stay here again, and an extra bonus for us is that our dogs are allowed. A very pleasant stay, and we would recommend spending at least one evening in a bar over the far side of the marina, watching the sun set over the Mar Menor, it is very special. Our favourite is the Meson Sol Y Sombra, nice owners and great food.

We had to book accommodation at the last minute as we normally stay in a family apartment on the strip, however, I'm now glad this happened. From our original enquiry Mike has been so helpful and gone above and beyond of what I would expect from an owner. the apartment was perfect, so clean and had the most beautiful views, spent every morning enjoying breakfast watching the boats from the marina. Considering there were family's with young children it was so peaceful. I had 2 15 year old children and felt secure in letting them walk around, go to the shops and even catch the bus themselves as the area seemed so safe. Having a car would have helped go further afield, however we didn't mind the walk over the bridge as it helped us work off some of the lovely meals we had. Found some gorgeous restaurants and would have happily stayed all Summer. John was fantastic too and nothing seemed too much trouble. Mikes apartment is perfect with a great ground floor terrace that whilst overlooking the marina still seemed private. Thank you for helping us out of a tight spot and I wouldn't hesitate in recommending your place and our sincere thanks to both yourself and John for the best customer service ever.

Whether it is for a short holiday break or long term stays, and the incredible views looking over the enchanting entrance to Tomas Maestre Marina - it really does guarantee is a relaxing time for all.

Wonderful apartment

  • 5 of 5

We booked our holiday in this area as we are planning to move to Spain in the near future. The apartment was a welcome home from home, the view from the terrace spectacular and the facilities were second to none. Even the safe was free of charge. The apartment was far enough away from the hustle and bustle of the main strip but within easy reach if wanted. The boat trip across to the other side of the Mar Menor was delightful and the restaurants around the marina were brilliant. A welcome pack was provided for our arrival along with information on where to go and what to see. A brilliant holiday. Thank you so much and we will hopefully see you again next year. Xx

Owner's Response: Thank you Angie - so pleased the experience was everything you wanted. We pride ourselves on giving guests not only a full value for money holiday but something and somewhere that they can feel completely comfortable in. The apartment and its position ticks the box for so many reasons, value, standards, position of looking over the marina, being able to cater for virtually everyone's needs. Angie - we look forward to welcoming you back next year should you choose to stay with us, and I am so pleased to think that we were maybe part of your reason for wanting to eventually return to Spain on a permanent basis, good luck & thanks - M & J H.

lovely holiday, comfortable apartment.

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely holiday in this comfortable well equipped and well maintained apartment. All the communication with the owner Mike Hare was very good. John and Caron in Spain were also extremely helpful and readily available if we needed them. We particularly enjoyed having the wifi, digital tv and the beach chairs! The large patio area was great to relax in, especially using the excellent garden furniture. Also a very well equipped kitchen including a dishwasher and washing machine.

The area was lovely and quiet in April which gave us a very restful holiday. Fantastic beaches, and great places to eat in the Marina. Hiring a car made it easier for us to get around.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the very positive review. This really does tell the story as it is - great apartment, fully equipped with free wifi & large range of television channels, idea to watch, when the sun occasionally goes in - and when its out a huge sun terrace to take advantage of plus beautiful beaches on your doorstep. Quiet and restful, but not out of touch with easy access to some great dining choices with the Mar Menor as a stunning backdrop. Still one or two weeks left in 2014, but it is very limited - bookings already coming through for 2015. Don't be disappointed and reserve your "chill time" now at what has to be some of the best value rates on offer.
