About the Owner

My husband and I live in England in a 300 year old house in a converted stable block attached to an old mansion house in Hertfordshire. I commute to the City most days and my husband is semi-retired.

Our two sons are both grown up and have left home, the oldest son has just become a father himself so we now have a lovely grandson, Seth, to add to the family to enjoy our frequent holidays in our wonderful house in Desert Springs.

We are passionate about our home in Spain and during our visits we are always buying new things to improve the ambiance and outdoor spaces to create that real home from home experience for ourselves and our guests.

Fantastic villa and resort!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second family holiday to Desert Springs and this villa was perfect. Everything was exactly as described and could not be faulted. The 14 villa community guests / residents were really nice people who we shared many enjoyable hours around the pool with. I would certainly recommend this for a family holiday and we certainly plan to go again. The villa is nicely tucked away so there is no passing noise, just quiet, peaceful, clean and we felt very safe. In addition, the club house meals were a high quality and very reasonably priced. Other local restaurants were equally as good with no bad experiences! My children (aged 11, 9 and &) also loved the kids club which kept them occupied with a range of activities, and the guy who runs it - Mike, is a credit to the resort. The only downside were the annoying flies due to a particularly hot summer, but that is the same for the rest of Spain, however they didn't spoil the holiday.

From the Owner

We fell in love with Desert Springs the first time we drove up the winding drive and my husband saw the golf course. No properties had been constructed at this time and the golf club bar was in a magnificent tent! It was the night before we were due to fly home and we left a couple of hours later having chosen a house off plan and put a deposit on our hew home in the sun! The house was finally ready in 2004, what seemed like a never ending wait. A group of faithful friends wanted to rent other houses and holiday with us that summer - and have done so for 10 years ever since! As the families have grown we now have kids' partners and husbands and now our grandchildren to make up the group. The area offers lots to suit all types whether you want beach, shops, or sports.

Activity and Interests


Numerous beaches within a short drive, the nearest 10 mins away. Beaches range from small rocky coves to family beaches that are wide and long and are supervised by lifeguards during the main Spanish holiday period (~3rd week June to Sept). Beaches are very clean, with showers, toilets and accessed by board walks. Lots of beach bars, restaurants, also with beds and shades to hire.


Accessed by three airports - Almeria (50 mins), Murcia (70 mins) & Alicante (110 mins). Car is essential.


Very close to Vera, Vera Playa, Cuevas del Almanzora, Palomares, Palomares Playa, Mojacar (20 mins by car)

From the Owner

For us one of the great advantages of our property is that there is a lot of outside space. Even when the house is full with 6 adults, everyone can find their own space to sunbathe, read, listen to music and chill. The younger ones prefer to take the beds to the pool whilst my husband and I have our favourite spots on the two large patios, or even on the roof terrace. For those who prefer shade there are still plenty of options. We have the benefit of a larger pool since it is communal and it's nice to pass the time of day with other holidaymakers - often our friends who stop by to share a beer, bring a G&T or looking for partners for cards.
