About Donna & Stephen Briggs

We live in Cardiff and have 2 children and a granddaughter. It has always been our dream to own a property in Spain. My husband and I both work full time and enjoy nothing more than escaping to Spain at least 3 times a year. When we are not in Spain we love to share our spanish home with other families.

Donna & Stephen Briggs purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Donna & Stephen Briggs chose Cartagena & Mar Menor

Prior to being lucky enough to own this apartment we spent 5 years renting it, spending our family summer holidays in Los Alcazares. We feel this apartment is in the best location on Playa 3 with both front and rear entrances and terraces. Los Alcazares is typically Spanish and feels safe. The people are extremely friendly and you cannot help but relax in the laid back atmosphere. We love the fact you can be in your apartment within 10 minutes of landing.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment is in the perfect location on playa 3 and for all amenities airport, beach, supermarkets, shops, restaurants and golf.We love the fact you don't need a car,it's a pleasure to walk to the shops. The pool area is only steps away from the terrace.The beach bars are a great place to watch the world go by.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Superb Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely holiday in this apartment. It was spotless with everything you needed in a holiday apartment. We especially loved the patio with sun and shade and surrounded by lovely plants. Donna was so helpful and supplied all the information needed for the apartment before we arrived. It was also very handy having milk coffee water etc. There when we arrived. We are visiting Los Alcazares again in May and are really disappointed this apartment isn't available it is obviously very popular as the complex is beautifully kept.

Owner's Response: Thank you Jean for such a great review. The terrace is also our favourite spot giving all year round sunshine or shade. I am also disappointed we cannot help with a further booking you were lovely guests, maybe when you know your dates for next year we can welcome you back.

Perfect stay

  • 5 of 5

Bright, spacious, well presented apartment. Everything and more to make our stay that extra bit special and so well equipped it was easy to feel totally at home. Very clean throughout and well stocked fridge with beers, water, butter etc.

Front and back seating areas so you can soak up the sun on one terrace and cool down on the other and a few steps away from the rear terrace takes you to a lovely pool area.

Owner's Response: Thank you Magaret for a lovely review. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay and felt so comfortable in our apartment. Our intention is for our guests to feel relaxed so their holiday can begin the minute they have unpacked. Having basic essentials ensures guests can at least have a cup of tea/ coffee and toast on arrival before rushing out to the supermarket. The best compliment guests can give is rebooking and I would be very pleased to welcome you back next year, you were great guests.

Home from home in the sunshine

  • 4 of 5

The owners are very very helpful and easy to deal with, the property is in a really good location and is very well equipped. We had a wonderful holiday and would stay here again in the future.

The town of Los Alcazares is fantastic, the promenade walk is gorgeous and goes on for ever. The other towns on the Mar Menor coast are all well worth a visit, there are plenty of places to eat, enjoy a drink or just watch the world go by.

The shopping center up in La Zenia is top quality, if you don't find it there it probably doesn't exist.

We explored the Murcia Region by car and loved it.

Just excellent cannot be faulted

  • 5 of 5

This was the 2nd time we have stayed in this property and once again it cannot be faulted. It is an ideal position for everything in and around Los Alcazares. The apartment is modern, clean and with everything you need. Previous guests leave little things that are so handy to have so you don't have to go out and buy everything for your stay. I would recommend this property to anyone.

The apartment is less than a 10 mins drive from Murcia (San Javier) Airport, which is served by a number of low cost carriers from all over the UK and Europe, while Alicante Airport is a 50 mins drive.
