La Manga Strip Apartment Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 4, south-facing balcony with fabulous views

These luxury 1st and 6th floor apartments are in a prime position on La Manga strip. The large south facing balconies have stunning 180 degree unrestricted views out over the Tomas Maestra marina, Med, Mar Menor and mountains beyond.

There is a wide selection of excellent restaurants and bars nearby including a 5 star spa hotel next door. The pools and short tennis court are surrounded by a grassed area with benches and palm trees. Long stretches of unspoilt Mar Menor and Mediterranean beaches can be found just a few hundred metres away.

The apartments each sleep four people and are equipped with a wide balcony with views directly over the marina, full air conditioning (cool & heat), two bedrooms (1 double and 1 twin), 2 bathrooms and a well equipped kitchen, each bedroom has its own balcony with stunning views. Free internet access is provided for all your wifi devices. If you bring your wifi device you can watch international TV channels (including UK BBC, ITV) via the internet for free and your subscribed Sky channels for a small fee.

The apartments are ideal for a relaxing holiday just watching the boats sail by from the comfort of the balcony, or for an activity holiday from a great variety of water sports close by.

La Manga: Thanks to the geographic conditions and the climate, La Manga del Mar Menor is probably the best place in the world for practicing nautical sports. The two distinct seas, soft breezes, sunny days and significant sporting infrastructures makes La Manga a water sports paradise. No one need travel far to practice their water sport; sailing, canoeing, water skiing, windsurfing, kite surfing, jet skiing, diving and most other nautical sports.

Apart from the water sports, the area offers a great variety of other activities to suit all tastes such as sight seeing, guided walking tours, horse riding, fishing, pleasure flights, coastal hikes and bird watching at the nearby nature reserves. The world famous La Manga Club is 20 minutes drive away with many quality golf courses nearby. There are tennis clubs with courts open to the public all year round, plus paddle tennis and squash. In addition there is a roller-skating rink and full size go-kart track.

The road which runs through La Manga has been built to offer cyclists the safety of a cycle-lane and there’s an absence of hills throughout the strip. Bike hire is available nearby. Blue flag beaches and boat trips also make this a favourite place for all the family. There are boat trips from the marina to local islands in both the Med and the Mar Menor.

In La Manga you can rest, practice sport and also get to know the local history, or participate in the traditional fiestas of the area.

Cuisine - A world of flavours is offered to the visitors of La Manga, and the typically Mediterranean style of cooking is available in the restaurants. This includes paellas, fresh fish, freshly grilled meats and succulent salads. There are a variety of excellent restaurants at the marina including Italian, French, Mexican, and Asian.

Local Area: The historic towns of Cartagena (40 mins away) and Murcia (60 mins drive) are well worth visiting for the shopping, Roman monuments and sightseeing. Cartagena is full of interesting architecture, has many museums, and has an historic marina with tourist trips around the harbour. The shopping in the historic centre is great. Murcia also has a zoo, water park and acquarium.

There are small towns nearby for sightseeing and shopping including Los Belones and Santiago de la Ribera. You can take the foot ferry from the marina to Santiago de la Ribera, the Spanish air display team practices here.

You can take a scenic tour through the local mountains or visit the flamingos at the San Pedro salt lakes.

You don't need a car to enjoy a holiday here since buses run up and down the strip all day and there are bus services to the local towns such as Los Belones and Cartagena.

Relax and enjoy.

COMMENTS FROM OWNER GUESTBOOK

'We had a super holiday at your apartment and were most comfortable. We like the Mar Menor coast very much for the fact it is not over touristy. This helped us to feel that we were really away from it all..'
'We had a wonderful holiday in no small part due to the quality of your apartment and would be more than happy to recommend you to our friends.'
'We really enjoyed the Mar Menor mud beach and the Med which are both so clean. Your apartment was just great with everything we needed.'

EXCELLENT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
The location at the quieter end of La Manga is excellent if you really want to get away from things, although it is convenient enough for shops and restaurants. We were pleasantly surprised at how cheap it was to eat in restaurants in Spain so we ate out many times as there was so much choice - something for everyone. We stayed in February so many things were closed but there was more than enough for us to do, particularly day trips to the vast number of interesting places and sites in the area. The apartment is well appointed and two bathrooms were an added bonus - one each! The balcony looks out over the Tomas Maestre marina so you can see the daily comings and goings of the small fishing crafts and the larger leisure cruisers and the site of the sun going down over the Mar Menor was amazing. The apartment was very clean and well maintained and a small problem we had on arrival was dealt with very quickly by the keyholder. Contact with both the owner and keyholder was excellent and the keyholder was waiting at the apartment for us when we arrived. Would definitely recommend to friends/relatives.

EXCELLENT APARTMENT WITH LOVELY VIEW OF THE PORT

  • 5 of 5
This apartment is in a lovely complex with a relaxed and friendly pool area.
From booking until the end of our stay the owner and the letting agent were very attentive, helpful and also supplied use with some excellent information of the area (maybe a bit too much!).
The apartment came very well stocked with enough for four people and had excellent working white goods. It was very clean when we arrived and easy to keep clean having also plenty of cleaning equipment if needed. Any problems we did have initially when we arrived were quickly resolved by the owner. Therefore, couldn't really fault a thing.
The area had a very relaxed atmosphere, an excellent place to escape the hustle & bustle. The pool area especially. Even though there seemed to be plenty of people staying there, it was calm & friendly with enough space for everyone.
Unlike other typical spanish resorts, the beaches here are also calm & relaxed, no-one fighting for space & no touristy deck chair sellers (but you do need to take your own seats & umbrellas if required).
The beaches are fantastic. This apartment is on the Mar Menor side where you can go to put the mud on your skin (an excellent experience and also a free one!). We went a couple of times to do this and literally across the road is the Med, also a lovely beach.
Easiest way to get around the other parts of the strip is by bus (no 15) which is 1.15 Euros for any length journey. Excellent value and also easy to understand. We were at km14 & during the evenings we often went to km 3 or 4 where most of the restaurants & night life are, even though there are a couple of good cafes right by the apartment.
Also, there is a Spar supermarket next to the apartment which has everything you need for a relaxed and enjoyable holiday.
All in all a great holiday for the whole family. Would recommend for any age, couples & families.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review, glad you enjoyed your stay. I just wanted to mention there are many great restaurants at the nearby marina, and also a number of bars, so you don't have to travel far (couple of minutes on the bus or 20 minute walk) for a great meal with excellent views of the harbour and Mar Menor.

Lovely apartment with spectacular views of the Marina. Good location. The apartment is very well equipped, very clean and the owner/key manager were very friendly and helpful. There is also lots of very helpful information in the apartment on best restaurants, ideas for day trips etc. Would definately recommend this apartment - the perfect place to sip a glass of wine and watch the boats come and go!

GREAT APARTMENT, GREAT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
My two friends and I had a great holiday in Cheryl's 6th floor apartment in Sept 09. The apartment was just as Cheryl had described it. The views from the balcony were fantastic and one night we spent hours out there watching the sky light up over Santiago de Riberos during a thunderstorm. From the day we booked the apartment Cheryl was so professional and couldn't do enough for us. She is so well organised and as a result the holiday was totally stress free. We didn't need to worry about a thing from start to finish. John was waiting at the airport to pick us up and was bang on time for the return to the airport. We even met the cleaners who were really nice too. Since we were there towards the end of the season the bus service could be a bit erratic so we hired bikes from a man near the marina and we had a brilliant time riding up and down the strip even in the rain. There is a very well stocked supermarket a few minutes walk from the apartment which was really handy and a great restaurant just before the bridge on the right hand side which did a lovely lunch including a glass of wine for 8 or 9 euros. The pool area is lovely and we even managed a couple of days sunbathing plus a swim. We also went to Cartagena on the bus one day. It was a beautiful city with lots to see and we would thoroughly recommend a trip there. We were only in La Manga for a week but we were wishing we had been there a bit longer as we enjoyed it so much.

The La Manga Strip has a unique position in Europe, between two Seas, the Mediterranean Sea and the crystal clear waters of the Mar Menor. The apartment is located overlooking the largest marina in the area, near the tip of the strip.

This part of Spain is famous for its salt lakes (salt is a major export). This has a major knock on effect on humidity levels, and as a result the air is much dryer than in other parts of Spain & Europe. The low humidity levels coupled with a mild climate, means the WHO (World Health Organisation) have rated this part of Spain one of the healthiest climates on the planet.

There are frequent low cost flights to both Murcia's San Javier and Alicante airports from many UK airports. Murcia Airport is a 40 minute drive and Alicante is 90 minutes. Taxis and car hire are available at both airports and airport transfers can be arranged.

A car isn't necessary since there is a frequent bus service up and down the strip and to nearby towns such as Cartagena.

Other Activities: jet skiing, boat trips and hire, go karting, quad bikes, kite surfing, beach bars, golf including the world famous La Manga club.

The historic cities of Cartagena (40 mins away) and Murcia (60 mins drive) are well worth visiting for the shopping, Roman monuments and sightseeing. Cartagena is full of interesting architecture, has many museums, and an historic marina with tourist trips around the harbour. The shopping in the historic centre is great and the fiestas are renound. Murcia also has a zoo, water park and acquarium.

You can take a scenic tour through the local mountains or visit the flamingos at the San Pedro salt lakes.

Relax and enjoy - in La Manga you can rest, practice sport and also get to know the local history, or participate in the traditional fiestas of the area, the choice is yours.

Golf: La Manga Club is 20 minutes drive away with many quality golf courses close by including DeVere Roda Golf (20 minutes), La Serena (20 minutes) and Hacienda del Alamo (40 minutes). A 9 hole pitch and putt and driving range is a couple of minutes drive away.

La Manga Club is home to 3 magnificent 18 hole championship courses which all benefit from uniquely tranquil surroundings with superb views. La Manga Club is considered one of Europe's finest golfing destinations and has played host to many international tournaments.

Roda Golf Course is constructed within an excellent 18-hole, par 72 golf course exclusively designed by Dave Thomas, one of the most prestigious European golf designers.

La Serena Golf & Beach Resort is superbly situated just 5 minutes from the beautiful sandy beaches & calming shores of the Mar Menor.

Hacienda del Alamo was awarded 'International Golf Resort of the Year 2007'. The spectacular clubhouse has stunning views all the way to the Mar Menor and to the mountains of Murcia.

Other golf courses nearby include La Finca, Campoamor, Altorreal, Mar Menor Golf, El Valle, La Torre, Mosa Trajectum, Villamartin and Las Ramblas.

I can provide further information about the local courses and booking your golf tee times.
