About John and Joan

My husband and I live in the UK and both lead busy lives working hard so that we can spend as much time as possible in Villaricos which is a beautiful and authentically Spanish village, we have taken time and pride in providing a well equipped and comfortable apartment and hope that if you choose to stay you will have a relaxed and enjoyable holiday.

John and Joan purchased this apartment in 2007

Why John and Joan chose Mojacar area

When deciding where to buy our holiday home we decided on the village of Villaricos having spent some time in the area we fell in love with the village, it ticked all the boxes for us having a traditional Spanish feel with friendly people, lovely bars and restaurants which served wonderful fresh fish and sea food alongside many others dishes. So if like us you are foodies you won’t go wrong.

As soon as we saw the beautiful complex of Harbour Lights we knew this was the home for us and have since spent many wonderful holidays there with family and friends.

We really enjoy the relaxed and warm feel of the village and that everything is just a short stroll away, or drive if you are looking for full on night life.

What makes this apartment unique

We loved the traditional Spanish feeling of Harbour lights and this is born out by its architecture and the four traditional plaza's making up the complex. The beauty of Harbour lights is maintained in that each area is redecorated every four years and maintenance is of a high level. The facilities are contained within each of the plazas with a lovely pool in one and a jacuzzi contained in beautiful gardens in an other, the other two plazas have lovely fountain features where you can read a book or just contemplate life! This is all situated on a stunning harbour front. This is why we fell in love with harbour lights and the village of Villaricos.

Wonderful Holiday, Lovely Apartment, Beautiful village

  • 5 of 5

We have been so busy we decided to take a break. Not wanting to go far afield we heard this part of Spain was sunny and warm even at this time of year, we were not disappointed. We've had a lovely holiday in this beautiful part of Spain. The apartment was beatifully furnished, very clean and was equiped to a high standard. The complex itself was beautiful and the village was outstanding. Thank you john and Joan who were very helpful and great with suggestions of where to eat and places to visit, we very much enjoyed the cabarra mountains. We would highly recommend this apartment for anyone visiting this area of Spain. We hope to be back!

From the moment we booked this holiday the service we received has been fantastic. Absaloutly lovely apartment, perfect for families and couples of all ages. Even though we went at peak time it was really peaceful and relaxing and all residents were very respectful. Villaricos is a beautiful little fishing village, could not recommended enough. We will definitely return. Thank you to John and Joan they have both been really helpful and provides us with enough information x

A wonderful relaxing place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment has everything one needs for a content holiday. John and Joan, the owners, are two of the nicest people I have met. Extremely helpful and full of fun. We had not been to Villaricos before so slightly apprehensive but it is a lovely quiet Spanish town. Hardly any English spoken, which is rare in a holiday resort, again a bonus. Good food, good wine, very friendly and great for families and small children. Wonderful, safe beaches.

" We will be back" as the saying goes. Hopefully very soon.

Roberts Family from Kent.

The apartment is in a perfect location, very close to the beaches and restaurants, a lovely place.

  • 5 of 5

Harbour Lights is a quiet but perfect place to stay, very clean and modern with beautiful courtyard gardens and pool, the apartment was in a great location on the edge of town but within easy walking distance of the bars, restaurants and beach. We had a lovely stay and the location was well positioned for exploring the beautiful costal area of Villaricos and the surrounding area.

This was a very good choice for us - peaceful , well equipped and spacious. We loved the village and the Sunday market, the two marinas and the small bars and restaurants. We hope to return before long (possibly in warmer weather) and will definitely recommend the apartment to family and friends. Many thanks to John and Joan for all their help and suggestions prior to our visit.
