About the property

House in Los Alcazares, Costa Calida / Murcia, Spain - Perfect Location Near To Beach And Entertainment

Casa Patricia is a good quality holiday townhouse in the Playa 2 complex that's only a couple of minutes' walk to beaches, bars, supermarkets, and international restaurants. No car is needed if you don't want to drive as everything is on your doorstep. Its used by the owner and their family for part of the year so fittings are of a good quality 'home from home' standard. The two upstairs bedrooms can be set up as two double rooms or a double and two singles (heavy duty beds so they stay together during the night!).

Lounge, fully fitted kitchen and dining on ground floor. An extra toilet is on the ground floor. Bathroom including shower and toilet is on the first floor. Stairs lead to the roof terrace for all day sun bathing. Fridge freezer and sink in roof terrace store for those who want to spend the day on the sun loungers provided. Canopies are fitted to provide shaded areas on roof terrace and on the front terrace when needed. Good size pool in well maintained communal garden area with paddling pool for young children. 30 yards walk around the corner from the pool making it so much more peaceful! Free WiFi and UK TV, sports channels and films on demand. Play Station 2. Beach towels provided. Cleaned before you arrive and again when you depart. Plenty of fresh linen and towels available. Washing machine and fully fitted kitchen. Air conditioning and ceiling fans for comfort. Heating for the winter evenings if needed. Meet and greet service at the house when you arrive.

About Chris Kelly

I’m Chris Kelly and my wife is Eileen. We live and work in North East England but spend four or five weeks every year relaxing in Murcia. We have friends and grown up children who use the house for a few weeks each year and it’s available as a holiday let for the rest of the year.

We've thought about retiring to Spain but we're still in our fifties so not ready for that just yet. We are spending more and more time there as we love it so much so its a gradual process!

Chris Kelly purchased this house in 2012

Why Chris Kelly chose Cartagena & Mar Menor

The local community in Los Alcázares is very international with mainly Spanish, English, Scandinavian, French and Dutch residents and holidaymakers. It’s been a favourite holiday destination for the Spanish for over a century and once you’ve experienced the relaxed atmosphere of the area it’s easy to see why everyone loves it. It’s a laid back area during the day but has a vibrant feel at night with mainly couples, families and golfing groups

What makes this house unique

The townhouse is perfect for those looking for a relaxing break in Murcia within five minutes walking distance of beaches, bars, large supermarkets, summer fairground and international restaurants. It has its own private roof terrace with full sun from sunrise to sunset as well as two terraces on the ground floor. There is a lovely shared pool in the well maintained gardens to cool off in and a shallow pool for young children.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Great Winter Break"

We visited in December and the weather was warm during the day and the heating was excellent for the chilly nights. The patio was great for breakfast in the sun every morning and the roof terrace was great for afternoon sun.

Restaurants were plentiful very good quality and only five minutes walk away.

The walk along the Mar Menor was delightful and relaxing with plenty stop off points along the way for a coffee or beer.

We play gold and played Roda and Serena courses whilst visiting and they proved a challenging and enjoyable golfing experience.

The house is very well equipment with good home comforts and quality finish.

We would definitely stay here again



"Lovely house in a great location"

This was our first time in a house rather than an apartment and the extra space was a fantastic bonus to the holiday. We loved the house, the area, the new friends we made and will definitely be coming back next spring. The owners had arranged return airport transfers for us and we shown around the house when we arrived. We're always a little wary when seeing somewhere for the first time but everything was spotless. Quality cotton sheets and nice towels added to the welcoming feel of the place. Even the cutlery was high standard which made it feel more like we were house guests rather than a holiday let.

Although it was a quieter period there was still lots of places to eat or have a few drinks in the evenings. Nothing outstanding really but we never had cause to be disappointed by any of the food. Surprisingly low prices made it all very good value. Definitely recommend this place for anyone planning a holiday in Murcia.



"Lovely relaxing break. Fantastic location"

We stayed here after a recommendation from friends who'd been earlier in the year. It's a lovely house with everything that we were looking for. Most mornings were spent strolling along the seafront after breakfast before sunbathing and reading by the pool or on the roof terrace. We didn't travel around the area as this holiday was just to recharge the batteries but we loved Los Alcazares. We ate out most nights and there were lots of options. Richard's favourite was the Curry Leaf (I think that was what it was called) but I loved the atmosphere in El Patio. Fantastic steak cooked on a huge BBQ. The location of the house was perfect as we were only a short walk from the beaches or the nightlife but in a peaceful area of the town. It was our first time in Murcia but we'll definitely be returning here next year

Owner's Response: Thank you Alan. It was great to have you back again and we're delighted that you've already booked again for next year. I think that we've got the outside space about right now with the new tiling, canopies and privacy screens on the sunroof to add to the private front garden and patio. A few more things we'd like to do over the winter though! Regards

Perfect break

  • 5 of 5

This property is delightful. It is very comfortable, exceptionally clean and has everything you need, a perfect home from home. It is well positioned with a fabulous roof terrace for the sun worshipper. Easy walking distance to all the amenities and close to the airport. We have had a super week and hopefully will come again.

Owner's Response: Thank you Anne, we really appreciate your feedback. We completed the work on roof terrace earlier this year we're pleased with the results. Having the extra fridge freezer and mini kitchen facilities up there has also made a big difference. We hope to welcome you back again soon. Chris & Eileen

The villa was just as we expected and had what we required for our stay. Our location was Fabby,

  • 4 of 5

It was a 5 min walk to the supermarket (Mercadona), with 2 supermarkets a further 5 mins away (Lidl & Consum). Bars, some shops beside the Mercadona and the beach was a 10 min walk away. Lovely beach with gentle shallow sea.

We did a day trip to La Manga from the pier 10-15 min walk from the villa for 5 euros each way per person.

I've been to Los Alcazares before renting a hire car to go sight seeing but this time we had a restful chilled holiday without a hire car.

The villa has a lovely front patio that we ate breakfast at , then sat of an evening to enjoying the outdoor temperatures. The roof patio was fabulous, private with the wall fencing and the wonderful spacious view. We are sun worshippers ..!!

We had issues with the internet & Tv , so we contacted the owners and they got this issue sorted out for us...(16yr old needs the internet!! )

I would definitely use the villa again and recommend it to anyone wanting a chilled holiday with amenities close by.

Owner's Response: We're delighted that you enjoyed your stay and that our house had everything that you needed. I'm sorry that it took a couple of days to get the internet problem fixed. We've changed suppliers and increased the speed to 20mb so we shouldn't see this problem happen again. We had the work done on the rooftop terrace last winter and we're very happy with how it's turned out. Lots of room up and down to chill out and sunbathe at the house now. I hope to welcome you back again sometime. Thanks again for taking the time to provide a nice review. Regards Chris

Fantastic Villa

  • 5 of 5

This villa was really lovely, it had everything you would ever need. it was spotlessly clean and all the rooms were a very good size. The A/C in every room was brilliant especially during the nights. The rooftop terrace was a great place to unwind and was so peaceful and quiet.

The communal pool was a very good size and was never too busy. The location was brilliant with the beach only a 10 minute walk, and the shops and bars only 8 minutes away.

The property manager Mandy was excellent and picked us up and dropped us off at the airport which saved so much hassle and time

I cant wait to return, Thanks again Chris

Kind Regards

Gary
