ATTRACTIVE MODERN HOUSE WITH PRETTY TERRACE GARDEN AT THE BEACH COUPLES DISCOUNT

Los Urrutias House Rental Photos and Description

2 bedroom, 2 bathroom house, balcony with sea views, large shared pool

**10% discount for couples throughout the year**

**Price Reduction - Sept 2014 - discount - this price is shown in the price list**

This spacious modern property is situated at the edge of Estrella de Mar with sea views and surrounded by countryside. The villa is very well appointed internally and has an attractive private patio garden with seating, sun-loungers and a BBQ. It also has balcony with table and chairs and a great view across the Mar Menor and the surrounding countryside.

The beach is only a minutes walk (100m) away and there are 5 restaurants / bars in this small pretty village. The beach club has a large swimming pool, tennis courts, table tennis, mini golf and a multi-sport area, these are free for your use with just a small charge for tennis.

The property has two bedrooms and there is an additional single bed in the living area downstairs. Normally one room is set up with a double bed and the others with singles but it is possible to set up all bedrooms with single beds if preferred. There are two bath/shower rooms one upstairs and one downstairs.

We run a watersports company called Aqua Adicta offering dinghy sailing, windsurfing and kayaking. Our activities are suitable for people of all ages and abilities. We live just 10 mins from the property therefore you can be assured that if you have any problems we are just around the corner. Plus, of course, if you want to do some water-sports there is a very professional and reliable company just a short drive away!

Airports & Transport: Murcia airport (MJV) is only 15 minutes away and Alicante (ALC) airport is 1 hour. Both airports are served by both low cost and full service airlines making it easy for you to get here from your local airport.

Car rental is recommended to make the most of the area, however AIRPORT TRANSFERS can be arranged if you prefer not to drive.

BUSES run from Los Urrutias to Los Alcazares, Cado de Palos and Cartagena (summer only). There is also a TRAIN which runs from Los Nietos to Cartagena (all year). We also have a driver who can take you on trips to visit the many beautiful beaches and places of interest in the area for example: Cartagena, Cabo de Palos, Los Alcazares, Murcia, Calblanque Natural Park.

The area is very flat and therefore ideal to explore by BIKE, these can be hired and delivered to the house (you will need to arrange this before your holiday)

Pool Usage and other activities: The pool is situated 5 minutes walk from the house. It is just behind the promenade and next to a café. We specifically chose not to purchase a property which had a pool next door as you would get noise all day from children playing in the pool, in fact this can continue well into the night!

The pool is for the village of Estrella de Mar and is not open to the general public, we provide you with an electronic key to get in. Many houses in the village have pools of their own so it doesn't tend to get overcrowded.

Information on lots of activities is available at the villa including: hiking, thermal baths, golf, diving, bike hire and mountain bike routes, water-sports, horse riding, go-karting, bowling, paint-balling etc.

Places to visit: The small Spanish town of LOS URRUTIAS is a short walk (3 minutes) away. It has a grocery store, marina, local shops and a market on Thursday mornings.

A 5km drive takes you to LOS ALCAZARES, an old fishing town that has grown into a popular resort. Excellent shallow sandy beaches particularly safe for children as there are no tides or currents in the Mar Menor lagoon. Also come here for shops, supermarkets, restaurants and bars.

CALBLANQUE Natural Park (10km) is a remote area of gorgeous sandy beaches backed by rocky hills accessible only by a dirt track. Well worth discovering!!

CABO DE PALOS (12 km) has a lighthouse and a lovely old harbour well known for its fish restaurants

The old Moorish cities of CARTAGENA (15km) and MURCIA (30km) are an excellent day trip for their shops, architecture and history (Roman ruins in Cartagena).

LA MANGA DEL MAR MENOR (14km) is the place to go for nightlife, shopping, water activities and great beaches.

Having bought this house as a holiday home in 2004 Julian and I fell in love with the area and moved out to Spain in 2005. We lived in this house for the first 6 months but needed to find a larger property as we planned to open a watersports business and needed lots of storeage for boats and equipment. We have now been running our business for 7 years and are loving it! To find more about us and our business search for Aqua Adicta on Google,

Julian and Lesley Singleton purchased this house in 2004

We specifially chose this property as we wanted somewhere quiet, close to the beach but also close to local aminities like shops and restaurants. The house is 2 minute walk to the beach but not right down on the promenade where you would get a lot more hustle and bustle. It is located in a quiet street at the edge of the village overlooking countryside and the Mar Menor. It is also just 15 mins to Murcia airport so you don't have to waste lots of time travelling (we do not get flight noise)

The village of Estrella de Mar is very pretty and has several communical parks and gardens. There is a beach club with a lovely swimming pool, play area for the kids and multi-sport area for bigger kids. You can head down to the beach club if you want to socialise and head back to the house for a bit of peace and quiet! There are 5 restaurants / bars in the village and many more in the neigbhouring village of Los Urrutias. If you want shops you will find a few small stores in Los Alcazares but more serious shoppers need to head to Cartagena or Murcia. The area is ideal for those who like to explore, the Calblanque Natural Park is just 10 minutes away and has some of the best beaches in Spain, it is also great for walking and cycling in the cooler months. The pretty fishing port of Cabo de Palos is 15 minutes drive which has lovely beaches, great fish restaurants and also some great walks around the lighthouse and rocky headland. We love living here and have no plans to leave...we hope you will love it too!

Great Location to Chill Out

  • 5 of 5
We had a really nice 'chill out' week and were sorry to leave. The villa is lovely, beautifully furnished, and the most comfortable bed we've ever had in Spain. The transport to and from the airport made it so easy. It was great having everything within easy walking distance- supermarket, beach and the restaurants. The menu del dias were excellent and the restaurant staff were very friendly and helpful.

Good, clean house in convenient area

  • 4 of 5
This two-bedroomed house was clean and well-maintained. As is understandably the case with holiday rental properties, the photos showed the house at its best - the front garden area was not huge and most of the plants were not yet in bloom (it was Easter!). However, it is a very peaceful area and we spent a lot of the time sitting outside - very pleasant.

The property is in a well-located area - there are a couple of friendly bars, a patisserie and the beach across the road, and the village of Los Urrutias, with tapas bars and a reasonable supermarket, is a fairly short walk down the main road. Car hire or car with driver recommended for exploration further afield.

Excellent communication with owners and swift return of damages deposit. The rental cost gives very good value for money. Recommended.

A very pleasant stay, villa very comfortable and clean however a TV would of been a plus. Disappointed with the beach as very muddy and a digger was on it daily. A car is a must to appreciate the surrounding areas and beaches.
Overall a lovely holiday which we enjoyed very much and would recommend to others.

Owner's Response: We have now installed satellite TV at the house which includes channels in English, Spanish, German and French (July 3 2009).

I have been investigating to find out why diggers were on the beach as this is not normal (tractor type beach groomers are normal as they clean the sand). Apparently due to the unusually high rainfall during the winter some of the sand on the beach was washed away - the diggers were there to dump some new sand on the beach. Also the shoreline was muddy for the same reason so the diggers were levelling the shoreline. I'm sorry this disturbed you, however very glad they are working to improve our beach!

Estrella de Mar is set in a rural location surrounded by farmland and open countryside. It is beautifully laid out with parks and gardens, wide streets and typical Spanish architecture; no building stands more than two stories high. The palm-lined promenade with views across the Mar Menor to La Manga makes a lovely walk.

The neighbouring village of Los Urrutias is only 5 minutes walk away and has a supermarket, marina, hardware shop, newsagent, several cafes and restaurants and a weekly market.

There are a number of good very reasonably priced restaurants and cafes most within a 10 minute walk.

The Mar Menor is a huge salt-water lagoon, the ideal location for all types of watersports and very safe for swimming. Its calm shallow waters are warm all year round and shelve very gently so it is ideal for small children.

Water-sports are available on the Mar Menor and include; kayaking, windsurfing and dinghy sailing which you can book through our company Aqua Adicta (located 10 mins drive from the house). Other water-sports available are kite-surfing, water-skiing, wake-boarding and jet-skiing which are available on the La Manga Strip (15 mins drive)
