About Max Cullip

Hi my name is Max and my wife is Liz. We went to Spain in in 2003 on a deal with a property agent to look for our own holiday home. We really fell in love with the area and after three days we ended up buying the first property we had seen from plans. Two years later, I had to go to Spain on my own to collect the keys as Liz was 8 months pregnant with our first boy. We now have two boys, Zac age 11 and Sam age 10, we took Zac on his first visit to our apartment when he was only 3 months old and they have been going there twice a year ever since. The boys enjoy the pool or the beaches and we love the choice of beaches, restaurants and activities available.

Max Cullip purchased this apartment in 2003

Why Max Cullip chose Puerto de Mazarrón

There are loads of reasons we chose the property we did and in the location it is in. We looked at other properties completed by the builder and the quality was superb. The design and layout of the property works really well. Enclosed front and rear patios and great access to the community gardens and pool area. We have been going there for over 12 years now and we still comment on how happy we are with the choice of location. A few minutes walk to the nearest beach, restaurant, local shops and internet cafe with fresh bread for breakfast. A few minutes drive to loads more beaches, marinas and town of Puerto de Mazzaron. The views, beaches and local scenery are fantastic. Great access via motorways from Alicanti or Murcia airports and only 10 minutes from a golf club.

What makes this apartment unique

It is great being able to see the boys in the pool while we sit on the rear patio with a drink or prepare a salad in the kitchen for lunch. The pool and garden area are never over crowded and we have our own sun loungers to sunbathe by the pool. Our apartment is in the middle of the garden area, which makes it easy to nip inside for a cold drink from the fridge or use the toilet. The washing machine is handy for washing out the swim wear at the end of the day and a fixed washing line on the front patio dries our clothes in no time at all. The boys like to watch DVD while Liz and I get ready to go out for dinner. The air con in the lounge and bedrooms is great for keeping the apartment cool before bed time.

Great location, beautifully kept and everything we needed

  • 5 of 5

The location of the flat is just a ten minute stroll to the beachfront, which was closer than it had seemed on the map and was absolutely perfect for our little family.

We were met by Jane, who managed the property and who could not have been more helpful and was very efficient, having contacted us as soon as we made the booking.

The flat was immaculate, as were the front and rear courtyards and the swimming pool area. We had everything we needed for our stay, including for our 20-month old as there was a travel cot and high chair provided. The owners have thought of everything, even guide books.

Bolnuevo itself is a little gem. Superb beach but much quieter and more relaxed (in October at least) than Puerto de Mazarron or even Isla Plana when we visited there, which you can easily do by car.

One point to note is the supermarket virtually next door to the apartment complex was closed for the low season but the Spar was only a ten minute walk and several large supermarkets within driving distance.

Delightful Relaxed Stay

  • 5 of 5

A very pleasant apartment with a brilliant shared pool and garden facility. The terrace to the rear of the apartment was where my wife and I spent most of our time when not sleeping. Plenty of reasonably priced and friendly restaurants nearby. We actually hired a car and visited many beautiful beaches which were within easy distance and the busy town of Puerto de Mazzaron was a short drive away. We will certainly return to the area and would not hesitate to rent this accommodation again.

Special interest holidays:

The area is very good for golfing, walking or cycling holidays.


The area of Murcia is in the Costa Calida region which roughly translates to Warm Coast. The coastline in this area is loads of beaches one after the other. The nearest beach is only 5 minutes walk away. The beautiful sandy beaches in the area are well maintained by the local authority and great for the kids. Bahia beach is our favourite and very safe for the children because of the gentle slope of the sea floor. A bar for food and drinks and taps to wash your feet.


We usually fly with Easyjet to Alicante or Ryan Air to Murcia (San Javier) airport, which ever is the cheapest at the time. Alicante is about 1 hr and 20 mins drive and Murcia is about 40 mins drive. The route from either is mainly motorways and very easy to find our property. Both airports have car hire available.

Corvera airport was due to open summer 2013 & will be about 30 mins drive away.


Sierra Espuna mountain is 1 hour away. You can drive to the top or park along the way and get out to explore.

The old town of Cartegena is 45 minutes away with it's old harbour and town walls, plus bustling town centre.

One water park 1 hour away,plus Terra Natura is 45 minutes away (water park and zoo).

A variety of market towns are within an hours' drive, so you could almost visit a market every day!

Further Details:

Two minutes from the front door is a mini supermarket.

At last count the local village of Bolnuevo has about 14 restaurants and bars all within walking distance. The local village also has a chemist, opticians, holiday shops & car hire. Evening entertainment & outdoor pool tables can be found at The Oasis bar.

There is also a fantastic fortification about a 30 minute drive north on the coast, which we have taken our boys to many times.

Please look at the availibility calender to see if the apartment is available on the dates you require.

Please email Max and Liz if you wish to ask a question or book your stay and we will send you a booking form by email.
