Villa in Bolnuevo, Mazarron, Costa Calida / Murcia, Spain - Easy Access To Beach And Local Amenities

*Availability update summer holidays 2018. We are now booked out from 30 June to 25 August 2018. Weeks from 25 August to 8 Sept 2018 are still available. Plenty of availability for May, June, September and October, other times by agreement with the owner.

Some appraisals of the villa from guests staying this summer:

"Just a note to say how much we enjoyed our stay at your lovely villa which exceeded all our expectations" - Newman family, Nottingham, stayed May/June 2017

"We loved the villa and are missing it already. Will definitely book with you again" - Hargreaves family, Solihull, stayed June 2017

"The villa was amazing. We had a fabulous holiday and didn't want to come home" - Clews family, St Helens, stayed July 2017

"Gracias fue vacaciones perfectas" - Lopez family, Metz, stayed August 2017

The villa is situated on the edge of Bolnuevo, a typical Spanish seaside resort situated on the Bay of Mazarron. The villa backs onto open land and it is about 10 minutes walk down to the beach. A similar walk will take you into the seafront area with a large range of bars and restaurants to choose from. The property exterior is fully tiled and landscaped with an array of trees and flowers. There are several semi-tropical trees growing including guava, lemons and date palms. The gardens are regularly maintained by a local garden centre. The property has a private swimming pool 8 x 4 metres (open 1st May to 31 October) which is maintained regularly by a pool maintenance company. There is an outside shower next to the pool. For al fresco eating there is a charcoal barbecue with adjacent sink. There is ample parking for up to 6 cars and a large double garage should you wish to garage your car during your stay. A large supply of beach and pool equipment is kept for general use in the garage. For your security the property has a phone entry gate system, external security lighting, rejas throughout and a new alarm system. There is an electronic safe at the property. Bolnuevo is one of the sunniest places in Spain. The villa is well positioned to get cooling sea breezes, and is fully air-conditioned throughout (all new units for 2016). A wrap around covered balcony provides ample eating and relaxation space outside and with fabulous views out to the Bay of Mazarron. The oil fired boiler provides hot water and central heating if required. The villa is very roomy with 2 separate lounges and numerous sitting out areas and configured so that 2 families could share without getting under each other's feet. One lounge has a home cinema system. The property has free wi fi throughout. All usual freeview UK TV channels are available. In addition there are 4 good sized bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, a large well equipped kitchen and dining room. Many of the rooms have panoramic sea and mountain views. Bolnuevo is not only a beautiful seaside resort but it is also well situated for some great day trips out - all less than one hour drive - including shopping and sightseeing (Murcia and Cartagena), beach resorts and boat trips (Puerto de Mazarron, Aguilas and San Jean de los Terreros), remote beaches (playas nudistas West of Bolnuevo to Percheles), and mountain hikes and sports in the Sierra Espuna at nearby Alhama de Murcia. The thermal baths and spas at Archena and Fortuna. Golfers will love the greens at nearby Camposol.

The property also has an airconditioned amusement themed basement including an electromechanical pinball machine, football table, billiard table, space invaders/pacman machine, a bar area with stools and sofa and CD player, wc/shower room and vinyl jukebox packed with hits from the 1960s. The coin operated machines are all set to free play. Mums can relax by the pool with a pina colada knowing that they will not see their husband or teenage sons until it is time to go back to the airport! New additions to games room for 2018 include table tennis table, vintage one armed bandit slot machine and junior snooker/pool set to keep the kids happy while the grown ups play pool on the adults table.

There is a roof terrace with small studio room containing patio table and loungers for those who wish to catch the last rays of evening as the sun sets.

There are 4 excellent and reasonably priced bars/restaurants within 5 minutes walk of the villa. It is a 10 minute walk down the hillside to the beach or a 2 minute drive.

About Stephen Gadd

Sussex based solicitors Stephen and Gillian have owned properties in Spain since 2003 and have been letting holiday accommodation in Spain and the UK for 15 years.

They own a villa in the stunningly beautiful Ricote Valley about 1 hour inland from the bay of Mazarron. They have been coming to Bolnuevo for beach trips with the family for 10 years and after a three year search and after viewing dozens of houses finally bought this lovely roomy villa overlooking the bay in the Spring of 2015. Built in 2005 as a large Spanish family home it has been tastefully refurbished and re-fitted and further improvements are planned for 2018.

Stephen Gadd purchased this villa in 2015

Why Stephen Gadd chose Cartagena & Mar Menor

We have travelled the length of the Costas Blanca, Calida and del Sol but have always come back to the beautiful peaceful and relaxed beaches of the Bay of Mazarron..

Bolnuevo offers a quiet family holiday at a traditional Spanish resort. The clean beach is never too crowded even in August.

There are so many excellent and reasonably priced restaurants near the seafront in the nearby Port to choose from you may never want to eat in!

Lovely spacious and very well appointed villa - exceeded our expectations.

  • 5 of 5

From initial contact to our return communications with the owner were easy and all questions dealt with swiftly. Pre arrival information is comprehensive. The owner and his local agents are friendly and efficient - we were made to feel most welcome. The villa itself is stunning. The accommodation is spacious, in excellent condition and has everything one might need in the way of equipment. We found the bedrooms comfortable and loved the huge second sitting room - almost a private cinema! The pool area is delightful and the pool itself a delight. The villa is on a quiet street with lovely sea views from the terrace. There is easy access to Bolnuevo (about a 15 minute walk to the beach) which is a traditional and fairly sleepy place which was just what we were looking for. There is a long beach which is quiet during the week but busier at the weekend when the locals arrive. There are a number of restaurants both there and in nearby Porto de Mazarron. We visited Cartagena and Murcia, both great day trips and also enjoyed a visit to Aguilas. We would highly recommend this villa.

Beautiful Villa and Lovely Location

  • 5 of 5

Even before leaving home it was clear this was going to be a successful holiday with the owner giving helpful advice for our visit.

On arrival the local agent was equally helpful.

The house is well furnished, very clean and well located near enough to walk to the beach, and good local restaurants, but out of the immediate tourist area on a quiet road.

There are good sea views from most rooms and a tiled garden, with lots of areas for sitting in the sun.

Recommended, we hope to return next year. Thank you for a lovely stay.

Superb villa and facilities

  • 5 of 5

Lovely villa which is a short walk away from the beach. The rooms are very spacious and comfortable with air conditioning in each room. The kitchen is very well equipped and we loved the outdoor BBQ! Plenty of outdoor seating areas to enjoy the beautiful weather and there are many entertainment options for evenings in with a great film collection and a super games room. The pool is extremely clean and the perfect temperature for a refreshing dip. There are many great places to eat/drink a short walk away from the villa - we particularly enjoyed the beer and currywurst at El Jardin! The owners are extremely knowledgeable and helpful with a very quick response time for any queries. Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay (our son did not want to leave!) and have already booked our stay for 2017.

Amazing villa and location!

  • 5 of 5

This is a fantastic property. Loads of space inside and plenty of room outside as well. The villa is well stocked with all mod cons, great TV/movie room, spacious bedrooms and bathrooms and another lounge! The outside space is great with various zones of shade provided by the big brolleys and seating. the balcony provides great sea views and outdoor eating with doors into the kitchen. Felt secure with blinds/shutters and an alarm system with gated area for cars. Local area is lovely and walkable but a slight hill back up to the villa! Would defo go again - it was ace and the owners are fantastic and beyond helpful to ensure you haven enjoyable stay which we did :)

Great Villa with fantastic pool and games room

  • 5 of 5

This is our second visit to this lovely villa in Bolnuevo. We loved it so much we've already rebooked for a third visit next year! The outside space is absolutely fabulous with lovely planted patio areas and a fantastic pool. The Villa is spacious, comfortable and very well equipped, surrounded at the back with large shaded balcony, great for al fresco dining or relaxing with a book and glass of wine. All of the bedrooms and sitting rooms are air conditioned (a must in the hot Spanish summer). There is a basement games room complete with juke box, pinball machine, pool table, video games and bar, the kids loved it. The villa is located on the edge of the small town of Bolnuevo with sea views from the balcony. It's just a short stroll (10-15 minutes) into town for the beach, local bars and restaurants and local supermarkets. Stephen couldn't be more helpful and responds quickly and efficiently to enquiries about bookings or any issues with the Villa. The local English speaking managers are close by to ensure your stay runs smoothly. I would highly recommend this Villa.

Great villa in a great location

  • 5 of 5

This villa was everything we could ask for and more....it was large, well maintained and in a great location. There were 6 of us including 2 young children and the facilities were perfect, the games room was an unexpected bonus. Close enough to walk to the beach, local bars and supermarkets. The owners were very easy to deal with and met us when we arrived and the local agent was also very helpful and pleasant. It's definitely on our list for a return visit.
