We have lived in the area for 15 years and have had our own businesses, although now retired, still enjoy living in the area.
sally hardwick purchased this cottage in 2001
Why sally hardwick chose Mojacar area
Buying our home in Vera was an easy choice having had a holiday home in Mojacar for some years. The area is ideally situated with access to the nearby beaches or a peaceful drive into the mountains, whichever takes our fancy. We love the site of our home with the surrounding views and felt that others would also enjoy staying here as well, as the area offers a diverse range of lovely places to visit.
A 20% deposit is required when booking and the balance to be paid 6 weeks prior to arrival.
We do not ask for a breakages bond, only ask that any breakages are replaced on a same basis.
Guests are normally asked to vacate the cottages by 11 am in order to allow for cleaning etc. However, wherever possible we can arrange departures to coincide with flights etc. and can be agreed at time of booking. We aim to be as flexible as possible.
Notes on prices:
PLEASE NOTE -We have decided to keep 2014 rental prices the same as last year, therefore not increasing the cottage rental price. OUR CAR HIRE prices are very competative and you can rent a car for only 110 pounds per week! Please enquire about our pickup/drop off service also available at Almeria and Murcia airports, which has proved very popular with our previous guests.

Perfect location and lovely cottage
The cottage was in the perfect location; peaceful but close to all amenities including the motorway to explore further afield. Everything had been thought of and the cottage was lovely. Quiet lanes around the site meant evening walks were lovely and for bird watchers, there was a wealth of amazing birds seen and heard without leaving the garden! We would definitely return to this lovely property.
Enjoyed three weeks at this superb location. Lovely scenery, good location for seeing the sights. Vera is a quaint little town with a lovely market where you can soak up the atmosphere. Sally and David were the perfect hosts. The cottage was very well equipped, spotlessly clean and very comfortable. We enjoyed the quiet location which is only 5 minutes drive from everything you need. The airport pick up, and the car were a bonus for us, taking the stress out of finding the place. For anyone who enjoys walking or birdwatching this area is a must. Superb beaches and restaurants all a short drive away.
We were very impressed with everything about the property. It was in a beautiful setting with very pleasant gardens surrounding it. The cottage was beautifully decorated and furnished with everything a guest required (except a teapot!) The attention to detail was noticeable and all requests for help during our stay were swiftly dealt with. We very much appreciated the items of food provided when we arrived.
Overall - a wonderful base to enjoy our holiday.
Many thanks to Sally and Dave.
Ideal quiet getaway
This is a lovely property for couples looking for somewhere quiet and well-equipped. The owners, who were very helpful and welcoming, have put a lot of time and trouble into the property: it's quite simply furnished but has good quality furniture and kitchen equipment. The surrounding grounds are beautifully planted with figs, olives and citrus trees and the little pool is a relaxing place for hot days. The town of Vera is a short drive away, though too far to walk if you want to go out for a meal. However, if you're happy to self-cater this is an ideal place. It's also good for bird-watching, with Cabo de Gata about 45 minutes away. We would recommend this as a base for anyone looking for a base in quiet surroundings.

- Notes on accommodation: We have through our own experience of renting on our trips away, have tried to create what we would wish to find in our perfect holiday home. With this in mind we feel that with the rural aspect, within easy reach of all amenities and close to beaches, together with the spacious accommodation, this is what we feel we have achieved. Together with the large gardens providing privacy and peace and quiet, the cottages are ideally suited for both young and more mature couples. Sorry! We do not allow pets to stay in the cottages. Outside: The cottages are set in private gardens amongst olive and fruit trees. There are 2 large covered terraces, and a large patio area around the pool with sun loungers. Tables and chairs are on the terraces, perfect for dining outside. Barbecues are also provided and several seating areas are dotted around the gardens.
