The 6 spacious bedrooms, all with en-suite facilities, would suit families, couples or groups of friends wishing to enjoy all that the La Manga Club Resort has to offer, be it golf, tennis, football, water sports, quad biking, shopping, eating out, night life, or simply relaxing by the pool.

About Hilary Houze

I live in the lovely island of Jersey. I have three children who were all born in Jersey and are now grown up. I work in a family office managing various aspects of family life, one of which is our house in Spain. My parents bought the house 15 years ago after visiting the area on holiday, they loved the laid back lifestyle and the long sunny days. My sisters, brother and I have continued to use the house as a holiday home for our respective families but as we now live in various parts of the world the chances of getting to Spain on holidays have become increasingly less frequent. I use the house every year with all my children who have always loved going there and as they have grown have always found plenty to do.

Hilary Houze purchased this villa in 1998

Why Hilary Houze chose Cartagena

My parents bought the house as a second home. They loved the area because of the gorgeous temperature all year round, the fact that there was plenty to do around the resort and yet you could still find the real Spain in the local villages and markets. As a family we have used the house most years and always loved the fact that there is something for everyone whether you are a keen golfer, a child who loves having a pool outside the door, a teenager who wants to meet new friends or a sun worshiper who loves reading and relaxing. We also love the fact that it is so easy to get to, you can get a flight from the UK in the morning and be sitting by the pool by lunchtime. Our favorite time is in the evening when we light the barbeque and all sit on the terrace eating great food and chatting.

What makes this villa unique

Over the years we have spent time making the house as user friendly as possible. Every year we have extended and upgraded the facilities and it is now a place that provides every mod con that you would expect to aid a relaxing and stress free holiday home. We have built up a library of books and a good selection of DVD's for the enjoyment of those staying there. Installing Wifi throughout the house has also had a very positive effect for those wishing to work a little or for teenagers needing their daily facebook time. The feedback we have had from family and friends who have used the house in the past is that they have loved being there and that they would have loved to stay longer as they found it so relaxing and convenient.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My colleagues and I have just returned from another wonderful few days at this villa in La Manga. As always a great location, great food and wine, great company and amazingly we got a lot of work of done in between golf and tennis.

Thank you again for allowing us to use the villa a second time.

Beautiful villa with amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

Just came back from a 5 day stay at this lovely villa with my siblings to celebrate my mum's 80th birthday. It"s a beautifully maintained large villa with amazing grounds and views. We had a fabulous time! Hillary, the owner, was so helpful recommending good restaurants, shops etc and even allowed us to stay late on the day of departure free of charge as our flight was in the evening. Can't recommend highly enough.

Outstanding 5**************

  • 5 of 5

My family & I have just returned from our weeks stay at this villa... and we just didn't want to leave. We had such an brilliant time.

Such a fantastic villa, filled with loads of activities & space for our children to enjoy, it was also very child friendly which helped as we had 4 young ones with us. But it would be ideal for families or large groups of adults.

It was immaculately clean when we arrived & equipped with more than you could need.

We would recommend this villa 100% & will return again at some point for sure.

Just remember to take your camera as we spotted a couple of celebs in the bars at the resort during our stay.

Wonderful break

  • 5 of 5

We had a tremendous break. The villa is everything and more that you see in the photos. The layout and space allowed time for people to mix and also to have some privacy when they wanted despite there being 6 couples. The views and location are wonderful and made for the perfect break away.

Fantastic villa that ticks all the boxes

  • 5 of 5

This Villa is perfect for your stay in La Manga. The booking and correspondance before our arrival were simple and informative. The layout was exactly as requested on arrival and this massive pad was spotless. I would say it is more of a home than a rental as it is so fully stocked with games, books, dvds, computer games , pool toys etc etc. For the adults there are two TVs areas and a kitchen with everything you need. The rooms are all great and the outside balcony was fabulous for our 17 to eat on every night and watch the sunsets. In essence you will not be disappointed here, it was our second stay in 3 yrs and we are already in touch about going back. Outside the villa everything is within a 5-15 minute drive from a local supermarket on site to the Spanish style in town, English butcher , beaches , restaurants and golf courses. Enjoy.

Judges Houses

  • 5 of 5

Just WOW! This villa was everything we'd dreamed it would be and more!

A party of 14 women aged between 30 and 50+ who were hoping for a totally relaxing break and that's exactly what we got. The villa is beautifully equipped and furnished to a very high standard. The pool was warm, plenty of sinners and a stunning view from wherever we were.

The communication throughout the booking process was excellent and the owner couldn't have been more helpful and accommodating.

We are already planning our next trip!

We were a party of 13, aged 6 months to sixty. The villa was everything it promised to be. Easily accommodated us all and the owner made sure all our needs for cots etc. were met.

We particularly appreciated the comfortable beds and the fluffy large towels! Even the pool towels were great! Not sure that I would go back to la manga club but the villa was superb and well situated for us coming from four different parts of the UK.

Car: necessary


There is a small resort beach within a ten minute walk of the villa. The walk back is uphill but parking is plentiful next to the beach. It is safe for swimmers and popular for snorkelling. Sunloungers and umbrellas can be hired, wc and showers are provided and a there is a lovely open restaurant overlooking the sea. Other beaches are a short drive away, either down towards the Mar Menor where all water sports are available or further along the coast for beaches more popular with the locals.


The nearest airport is Murcia, a short 25 minute drive from the Villa. Slightly further there is Alicante airport which is approximately one hour, fifteen minutes drive away. There are plenty of hire car agencies at both airports and driving from either airport is a very easy, straightforward drive. Taxis are available but a car is essential at the house for getting about.


The nearest town is Los Belones, about a 5 minute drive away, which has lovely restaurants and coffee shops and also hosts a local market once a week. The fishing village of Cabo de Palos is about 15 minutes drive away. Here there are many quayside restaurants where you can watch the fishing boats coming in and unloading the days catch. Slightly further there are the old towns of Cartagena (approx 20 mins drive) and Murcia (one hour 10 mins drive), also good for eating out and shopping.

Further Details:

On the La Manga Resort there are 2 supermarkets, coffee shops, banks, atm, 2 public gyms and a spa. There are many restaurants specializing in local and international cuisine. The sports facilities are extensive with superb golf courses, many tennis courts, squash courts, football and cricket pitches. Tuition is offered in most sports from residential qualified instructors. The Spa has a full length swimming pool, a fully equipped gym with personal trainers and a luxurious beauty area offering many different treatments.
