Fantastic Family Home in a Superb Holiday Location
About the Owner
About Ms Janine Macauley
I had always dreamt of living in Spain and this became my reality back in July 2000 when I moved in to this lovely spacious home with my family. A few years later my family moved back to the UK yet I remained in Spain until 2010 when the distance between us became too much. I now live in the UK on a permanent basis and visit my lovely house on holidays instead as do my family.
Ms Janine Macauley purchased this house in 2000
Why Ms Janine Macauley chose Mojacar area
I bought my house in this location as this area of Spain as is very beautiful and unspoilt. It is also very Spanish as there was not a lot of other cultural influences in this area either.
What makes this house unique
Whilst I lived there I especially enjoyed the environment as it is so beautiful. It is so close to the sea that you can hear it, especially in the evenings from the house which I find very relaxing. There is a natural Laguna not far from the house too which attracts all sorts of wild life all year round from exotic birds to reptiles. Each day I took great pleasure in taking my dogs for long walks along the beach. Plus, everything I needed was close by. I led a very healthy and relaxing lifestyle.

lovely clean great size property - a stones throw from the beach and large supermarket
We had a wonderful stay - the apartment was lovely and a great size for 2 families with kids - the outdoor area provided a great sheltered eating space and the BBQ meant that we could cook our own food easily - bringing costs down!
Both "neighbors" on each side were amazingly friendly and welcoming - even with our lack of spanish and their small amount of english - both sides giving us gifts of wine during our stay!
The area was great - the Consom supermarket was large and a few minutes walk away from the apartment.
The pools were clean and almost always empty apart from us - the whole complex was quiet and well kept and also a few minutes away from a gorgeous long beach...there were some lovley bars/ restaurants on the beach all v friendly and serving some lovely food..
The only "issue" we had was that it wasnt so clear until we arrived that part of this beach / area was naturist and unfortunatley the part of the beach close to our apartment - we did walk further down the beach away from them but the naturists seemed to like to walk into the "clothed" area at times....
We visited the water park which was great fun and not too crowded - again only a few minutes walk away from the apartment
Local buses were frequent and easy to get from the roundabout opposite the supermarket and we took trips to Garrucha and the beautiful Majocar Pueblo - luckily arriving on a festival day which made it extra special.
Would recommend both the apartment and the area for a visit - especially if you want to have a more "spanish" holiday - and not filled with tourists and high-rise hotels.
We didnt take a car and didnt feel it was a problem at all - excellent shuttle bus to and from the airport
great holiday thankyou !
Fantastic Family Home in a Superb Holiday Location
Fantastic house for an amazing holiday in beautiful Almeria. Great for two families travelling together. 3 swimming pools on the doorstep and a gorgeous beach just 2 minutes walk away. The kids loved it. Loads to do locally and some very beautiful surrounding towns. House is spotless, well equipped and very spacious. Owner is lovely providing a superb service and very flexible. Loved it. Thank you so much. Will definitely recommend and would love to go back again. x
My holiday on Vera Playa
I spent a wonderfully, relaxing few weeks at Vera Playa where there was plenty to keep me occupied.
The beaches are literally on the doorstep and the swimming pools even closer and well kept. Throughout August there is an evening market as well as nearby restaurants,chiringuitos,bars just a minutes walk from the house.
I also had several trips out as there is so much available. I took a boat trip from Garrucha,a nearby village which also boasts a funfair and lovely shops. I took a drive out to Mini-Hollywoods at Taberna where I spent an enjoyable day.
The house was homely and had everything I needed.
I would definitely visit again.
Excellent position - very close to sandy beach
Amenities close by - bars, restaurant, wi-fi and super market (not noisy!). Water Park close enough to walk to. Property very clean and homely, everything you need. Would book to return.
Algunos detalles muy mejorables
La casa y la urbanización en un buen sitio, cerca de la playa y bastante tranquila. Casa amplia como se describe pero con detalles muy mejorables. Se anuncia WIFI y no hay, la televisión no nos funcionó en 4 días hasta que fue el técnico y le puso un TDT y un amplificador de antena. Por otro lado el frigorífico, electrodoméstico fundamental en el mes de agosto, para tirarlo, las bandejas de la puerta para botellas se caía porque estaba pegado con fixo, aparte de apenas enfriar y tener todos los cajones del congelador rotos o bastante rajados.
El patio trasero con muchos maceteros pero sin ninguna planta viva, y algunos de ellos rotos, en vez de tirarlos se amontonan allí.
Otro detalle es que es una casa para 8 personas y luego el comedor con una mesa y 4 sillas, un poco descompensado...
Por lo demás bien, limpieza, toallas, sábanas, camas, etc

Activity and Interests
The house is also located within walking distance from the local beach which can be seen from the house especially the roof top solarium. There is a very long paseo which stretches from one end of the beach all the way to Pueblo Laguna. Along this paseo there are various chiringuitos, beach hut shops and bars (some with pools) can be found.
Almeria is the closest airport (86.2 km) which is less than an hours drive away.
Murcia is 133 km away which is just under one and a half hours drive away.
Alicante is 207 km away which is approximately a 2 hour journey.
From each of these airports there is car hire, taxi's and coaches. It would be advisable to book in advance.
Local bars, shops and restaurants are a couple of minutes away on foot.
The Aquapark is also accessible on foot although this depends on what you want to take with you.
Puerto Rey is within walking distance as its only 2.8km away. The best way to get there on foot is by walking along the paseo to the right.
The small fishing village of Villaricos is only 5.5km and the beautiful fishing town of Garrucha is 5.8km away. The stunning Mojacar Pueblo is only 18.3km away and is always worth a visit
The local town of Mojacar which is always a favourite with the British is between 10kms and 20kms away as it takes up the whole stretch of the beach. Along this coast there are more bars, restaurants, nightclubs, banks and shops. There is even a commercial centre located here. Mojacar is sure to provide something that will suit everyone. Also from this location a bus can be caught to take you to the top of Mojacar Pueblo if you didn't fancy the climb.
