Overview

About the property

Detached villa in an enviable location, ideal for families or adults. Guests receive discounted sports rates.

Sleeping 6 to 7 people, this 3 twin bedroom, two bathroom, detached villa is in the desirable, peaceful location of El Rancho at La Manga Club. It was completely modernised and refurbished to the highest standard in 2015.

The villa is ideal for both a family holiday or an adults only trip. Set in tranquil, landscaped gardens, with a large expanse of grass perfect for children to play safely on,this traditional style, 2 storey villa is air-conditioned throughout. The entrance area has a WC/cloakroom and leads to a spacious comfortable lounge/dining room with high ceiling and 2 contemporary paddle fans. The recently fitted wood burner provides additional heating and a cosy feel for any winter visitors. In keeping with the style of El Rancho (the stables), the wooden beams in the vaulted ceiling add character and retains a link with the past. Light coloured floor tiles and dark leather sofas provide a luxurious tone. The lounge has a TV with a great selection of TV channels, a DVD player and a few games (Scrabble, Bananagrams, cards etc). The property also has free WIFI. The dining area opens to stylish fully equipped kitchen (dishwasher, microwave, hob and oven, extractor fan, lots of traditional terracotta earthenware, plenty of cutlery and crockery) with ample storage in high gloss walnut coloured and cream units, granite work surfaces, cream wall tiles.

Patio doors lead from the lounge to a large terrace with table and chairs for 6, an inbuilt BBQ and has great views over the Mar Menor and surrounding landscape. A large wooden dining table with chairs comfortably seats six and a retractable awning provides welcome shade above. There is an external staircase leading to a further roof terrace, which boasts stunning views of the nearby pool and gardens - the ideal place to catch the last rays of the sun in the evening. Both terraces have surrounding walls with inset wooden rails, thus providing good safety for children (If required, there is also the facility to use a child gate to restrict children reaching the upper terrace). Downstairs there are 3 generous bedrooms (one of which is en-suite with very large rainfall shower) each with 2 single beds and built in wardrobes, and in the third bedroom there is the option to have an additional bed to sleep the seventh person if required. There is also a large family bathroom, beautifully tiled. Each bathroom has a hairdryer. The light and airy master bedroom benefits from patio doors which open onto a small terrace and the villa's front garden. Set in beautiful landscaped gardens with bougainvillea, palm and citrus trees, the villa is a stone’s throw from the nearest swimming pool (pool 3 - guests at El Rancho have a choice of 9 pools). Bellaluz Plaza contains a few shops including a very well stocked supermarket, restaurants and bar and is a short walk away. All the resorts main facilities are within walking distance. As guests of the villa you can enjoy reduced rates (50%) for golf and tennis. Our management company are easily contactable and can arrange additional services such as taxi's, babysitting, supermarket shop for your arrival, provide high chairs etc.

La Manga Club and the Mar Menor offer many other activities such as bicycle hire, scuba diving on a marine reserve, kite surfing, water-skiing, wind surfing, boat hire, go-karting, hill walking; as well as superb beaches which are safe for children. Further afield are the cities of Murcia and Cartagena which both offer fantastic restaurants and shops as well as many places of historical interest.

About Gill Baxter

Hi, I've been visiting La Manga Club for 30 years, ever since my parents bought the villa. Time marches on and Dad sold the villa to my husband and I in 2014 - I couldn't bear to see it go and we both love the villa and all La Manga Club and the surrounding areas have to offer. We are fairly new to the rental business, so aim to be flexible and listen to what our guests want and comment on. Please get in touch if you want any general or specific information. We have a great management company so I'm sure anything you need can be arranged. If the dates in the calendar don't work for you, give me a call because if we can accommodate you we will. Thanks.

We currently live near Wimborne in Dorset and usually visit our villa twice a year for a great holiday and rest.

Gill Baxter purchased this villa in 2014

Why Gill Baxter chose Murcia - Costa Calida

La Manga Club has so much to offer everyone: families with young children or teenagers, adults, sporty and active people or those who just want to enjoy the sun and a good book. We're a mixture of all those things so it's ideal for us. Off the resort you can find the 'real' Spain easily, from the village of Los Belones just a mile or so away to the fishing village of Cabo de Palos which is 3 miles away towards the Strip (a long sand spit with fantastic beaches). Cartagena and Murcia are of immense historical interest and offer everything large towns have. We love to travel to different places in the world but have always enjoyed holidays at El Rancho in our villa.

What makes this villa unique

Our villa is part of the El Rancho (ER) community and set in lovely, and recently re-landscaped gardens, giving a feeling of space and privacy. There are 9 community pools and so you can always joint in the fun or find a quiet area to relax or swim. The ER owners take pride in their community and this is evident in the care taken both inside and outside the properties. The roads are very quiet and have plenty of parking spaces. Although all the ER properties are similar in terms of style they vary in layout. Our villa is arranged over 2 floors and the bedrooms are all accessible from an internal staircase. We have 2 large terrace areas, the largest facing out towards to Mar Menor and the other overlooking the gardens. Both are quite private and provide ample opportunity for both shade and sun.

Notes:
Notes on accommodation: As part of the refurbishment we have opened up the kitchen into the dining room, allowing a more open plan feel to the living/dining area. As the person who does most of the cooking in our family I appreciate not being shut in the kitchen away from everyone else! Outside: The landscaped gardens are a particular feature, offering a safe, beautiful area in which children can play, adults can shelter under the trees from the sun and offer privacy from the villas opposite. The gardens have recently been given extra attention with new planting, additional trees and shrubs. Because El Rancho has these lovely outside spaces the area seems quieter and less crowded than other areas of the Club. Our villa is near 3 of the 9 El Rancho pools and guests tend to use the pool adjacent to their villa meaning there is no over crowding. The villa has a built in BBQ on the large terrace. Patio furniture is provided and sun loungers with straw sun shades can be found near the pools. There is plenty of car parking space with bays at the front of the El Rancho villas. Utility Room: A small utility room can be found off the third bedroom on the ground floor. The washing machine is here along with the usual cleaning equipment. The space is useful for storage of suitcases and beach equipment, Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: Air-conditioning, bathroom towels and beach towels, linen and an arrival and exit clean are included in the weekly price. If your booking is longer than 10 days a mid-stay laundry charge is included. Other: This Spring's refurbishment includes new tiles & lighting throughout, new kitchen, leather sofas, curtains, a fixed outside awning over the terrace table. In fact just about everything new that we can manage to do in the time available.

An exceptional villa.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful property situated in the best part of the La Manga complex. Shops, restaurants, supermarkets etc. a five minute walk away. Abundance of swimming pools ! This property has been refurbished to a particularly high standard, and we had a wonderful stay there. Circumstances permitting, we will most certainly re-book for next year.

Great Stay at El Rancho 101

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week there in Mid April 2017. The house was presented immaculately. The booking service was excellent. The fit out and décor are modern and smart. It is a spacious house with bedrooms on the lower level and living areas on the upper. It overlooks a green area and is within 40 meters of two pools, both which can be seen from the kitchen and dining area. As always the La Manga Club did not disappoint. We Highly recommend.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This superb villa has been refurbished with care and thought to a very high standard. It is set in lovely gardens and the nearest swimming pool can be seen from the roof terrace and is only a few steps from the villa. There were always sunbeds available and we had the pool to ourselves nearly every day.

The villa itself is in a very good location within the La Manga resort. There are local shops and restaurants at Bellaluz Square which is only a few minutes walk from the villa and a more amenities and beaches a short drive away.

We had a fantastic holiday and I have no hesitation in recommending this villa.

It was a beautiful villa set in a perfect location of la manga club! The villa has recently been refurbished and to a very high standard.

Amazing Holiday, Stunning Villa, Idyllic Location

  • 5 of 5

We arrived mid-morning to the wonderful destination of La Manga. Booking and directions to the villa were easy and straightforward. The villa was brilliant! It was very spacious and clean with a comprehensive welcome pack, giving you all the local insights and places to go, and instructions on how everything worked. We were blown away by the high specification appliances, all clearly thought out very well, which included all the things you need to make your stay comfortable and easy. The highlight of the villa for us was the floor to ceiling walk-in double shower, which we've only ever seen before in 5 star hotels - very luxurious! Outside, all three pools were well maintained and spacious, with plenty of sun loungers and shade if you needed it. Very friendly place to go, and definitely going to book again. Thank you.

Beautiful villa in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful villa, just been refurbished. Do not hesitate to book this one. El Rancho is a great area within La Manga - walking distance to shops and great restaurants. Choice of uncrowded pools within a few metres. Owners are great and communicate extremely well. Management company also extremely helpful if you need a few groceries on arrival etc. I would rebook without any hesitation.

Location

Nearest Airport
35 Kilometres
San Javier, Murcia
Nearest Beach
1.5 Kilometres
La Calle (the Cove)

Coast/Beach:

There are 3 main beach areas nearby. One, over the hill behind the villa and down a winding track of a road to a scenic cove with restaurant. This is perhaps my favourite, not large but very pretty. Another is out of the resort along the La Manga Strip. Take your pick of long stretches of fine sand and warm water. The Mar de Crystal is a very large enclosed (by the La Manga sand spit) area of sea, ideal for children as it is shallow a good way out and very gentle. It is advisable to drive to the beaches.

Travel:

Easyjet and Ryanair fly to the nearest airport, San Javier, Murcia - only an easy 40 minutes drive away. Various car hire companies service the airport. Alternatively a return taxi will cost about €90. Alicante airport is about an hours drive up the coast.

Distances:

Los Belones, a typical Spanish village is just off the resort. There is a busy weekly market, restaurants and shops, including an excellent Bodega! Cabo de Palos, a fishing village about 3 miles off the resort has some great restaurants alongside the waterfront. Further on, up the strip you will find various plazas with shops and restaurants. Cartagena is a 30 minute drive away and offers modern shops alongside historical places of interest.

Further Details:

Bellaluz Plaza is only a short walk away. Stroll through the gardens to the supermarket in Bellaluz for your fresh bread for breakfast. Have a simple meal in the Bistro when you're too tired to cook, or pop along with the children for an afternoon ice cream treat. La Manga Club has a wonderful variety of restaurants and you don't have to drive to them. There's a bank, pharmacy, clothes shops etc. You can hire bikes, go on escorted rides. Scuba dive from Cabo de Palos. Climb Lion Mountain. Cartagena with it's historical interest, as well as brilliant shopping opportunities, is only half an hours drive away.
