About Mrs Jennette Harratt

I'm married to Wayne with 3 grown up boys and have been coming to Spain for the last 7/8 years but fell in love the area while on holiday. We now live here with our two dogs a great Dane called Scooby and a little stray that we took in called molly we have this adjoining property that we had rented for the last 3yrs to a smashing couple who have now gone on there travels again!! so we have decided to let it again for holiday let. We are outgoing and easy to get on with so if any worries don’t hesitate to ask away.

Mrs Jennette Harratt purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Mrs Jennette Harratt chose Murcia - Costa Calida

We purchased the property as we just fell in love with the house and casita plus the surrounding area. The peace and quiet is sheer bliss when all you want to do is chill out away from the hassle and bustle of city life!!!

What makes this apartment unique

We are situated in a little village surrounded by around 6 other properties we are also 10 mins from a Spanish restaurant and also an English hotel /restaurant

We booked this casita for our first Anniversary wanting some peace and quite and that is exactly what we got.The owners Wayne and netti made us feel really welcome and nothing was to much trouble.The casita has every thing you could need and has a fantastic outside area for barbecue and a fridge to keep them beers cold.The village is set in the beautiful sierra espuna region and Quad tours from the nearby Hotel Mariposa is a must,they also do excellent menu del dia meals set on a veranda over looking the valley.We will definitely be booking this property again.

Worst place ever !

  • 1 of 5

First I would like to say, this place is so misleading its unbelievable ! it looks nothing like the pics on this site, it looks wonderful and clean and tidy. This is so far from the truth. We have pics to back this up!. Also, I am not sure how you define Rural ? from Mountain, because this is 40 mins up the mountain.. The owner also told us we could eat at the Mariposa Hotel, where she works. Then when we arrived she told us that we could not eat there at tea time or night time residents only of the hotel.

They used the Casita like we was not there, my wife had got out of the shower on the second day. She was stood with no clothes on and there was the owner wanting to make conversation ! Where is the privacy in that ?

She used the washing machine constantly, I know it stated this in the ad but? its in the property. Privacy again. Regarding the pool, she told us the pool was attached to the main house, no its not, it belongs to the property. You have no privacy at all with this property which is what you pay for when you go away. Not to have the owners in there with you all the time.

The shower did not work it had no pressure a trickle only, She said it had Wifi , not true. Made excuses saying it did not work, but yet we could see in our settings it was there. No signal for the Mobile phones in case of emergency, she knew my wife was ill. She said it had Sky TV, not true, it as a Sky box with one or two channels.

We took our two small dogs with us. There was chemical left out in full view of the dogs which is harmful to them. I moved it.

The place was filthy, we had took three days to get there we arrived on the Monday the 13th July at 4pm as soon as we walked in. Wow ! Not in the best way, yes I know its rustic, but this takes the micky. We made excuses and left in the early hours of the 16th Thursday night. But we asked for a refund for the days we were not staying, she refused and said we had booked it for the 12 nights.Three nights was enough for us, we had to stay to recharge our batteries before we left. We had drove from the UK plus ? we had to see a vet to get the passports stamped so we could leave.

Also you are 40mins away from the nearest shops down the mountain. The road is a donkey track, her 10mins down the mountain is a joke.

The place was not clean at all there it was thick with dust everywhere, it had not been cleaned in months. All I can say is? look elsewhere !

If anyone requires pics to substantiate this review? Just ask.

Owner's Response: All I can say is every thing that is stated in our advertising for casa rural is just that !! We have never or will ever mislead our guests. we are a small hamlet in the mountains as stated !!! 10 klm from the main town of alhama their are other small villages nearer with shops and bars you do not have to drive to the main town that's your choice. As for dusty your in the middle of the Sierra espuna you do not expect to come here and not bring a bit of the outside in !! If people want a 5 star hotel then this is not for them but we have and still are having repeat bookings from many happy customers .!!! People ask us questions and we reply !! We are open and honest and its not our fault when some guests cannot be !!

another great holiday

  • 5 of 5

Well another really good two weeks in GEBAS region. This was our third visit to this very peaceful house. We did not go to the local much this time but, we did visit Alhama De MURCIA which is only 10 mins away by car. The amount of Tapas Bars in the town is great and they are so cheap and the food is wonderful, also a pint of ice cold lager is only 2 euros! We found the house so peaceful and relaxing and well equipped we did not want to leave! Wayne and Netti the owners were so helpful and pleasant people and we would like to call them Friends. We all went out several times for Tapas and drinks and they know the best places to go. We are already making plans to go back in 2015 for another wonderful holiday. I can recommend this property with no hesitation at all and you will be guaranteed a good time!!

Peace and quiet

  • 5 of 5

The area that this house is in is so peaceful and quite it is a pleasure to stay there. We were met by Jennette at midnight at the house as we had a late flight and she was very friendly and welcomed us with milk and bread for breakfast. The house has every thing you will need to self cater. The pool area is set out very well and has plenty of shade from the sun. We rented a car at the airport and we feel a car is needed to drive to some really nice towns and scenery. You can also be collected and returned to the airport for a small fee. It will take over one hour to arrive at the house. Within a ten minute walk there are three tapas bars two run by english couples and, they also cook english food. Paul and alison have a very nice tapas bar and very close to the house (ten m walk) the food is really nice and paul always has plenty of ice cold drinks on hand. The local hotel has tapas and english food also really nice, and they have out door activities, river rafting, kayak and swimming and quad tours which is run by Wayne (Jennetts husband) and you will be in safe hands as he really knows what he is doing. We found the food to be really inexpensive and good value for money. I have made another booking for november for a week and i am really looking forward to getting back for some R/R We would recommend any couple, family or friends to stay here and experience some real peace and quite!!!
