About Mike & Jean Hare

Ola..and Welcome to our Little Oasis on the Costa Calida coastline overlooking the Mar Menor.

My wife Jean, and I had always wanted a 'Place in the Sun' and 10 years ago an opportunity arose for us to see that wish through, with the purchase of Miradores del Puerto, followed 2 years later by Marinesco 2.

We immediately were attracted to the area by the convenience of a 2.5 hour flight, the cosiness of landing at a small but very efficient airport at San Javier - and more importantly the apartment, its positioning and the surroundings, it just felt right.

We have tried to make each of our place's a 'home from home' thinking about what would be the perfect place to stay in if we were having a break abroad - and hopefully over the years of us owning them, we would like to think we have done so.

Enjoy the description and pictures - we hope to hear from you soon.

Mike & Jean Hare purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Mike & Jean Hare chose La Manga Strip

Home from Home - it has everything without having to make sacrifices because your not at home.

Free Wifi & Satellite TV with UK and Sports TV if you want it and need to keep up with your favourite 'Soap'

Complimentary Welcome Pack -

Free use of High Chair, Cot and even a Buggy to make use of for the little one's

No extra charge for additional Linen, when using the Sofabed -

En Suite Bathroom attached to the Master Bedroom plus a full size Bathroom for the other guests.

No Hidden or Add On Charges.

5 minutes to a choice of Beaches -

Good Food - whether you are eating al fresco on the balcony or dining out -

Nice drinks which will definitely not cost you an 'arm and a leg' -

And ...there is always some good company around.

What makes this apartment unique

Its was the thought of waking up each morning with that sun shining - opening up the double sliding doors/windows on any of the rooms, and walking out onto the full length balcony and thinking...'This is the life' looking out over the pools and the landscaped gardens.

Shower, dressed for the sunshine and 5 minutes later, your on a beach with miles of golden sand looking out to the Med or the cosiness and privacy of the Mar Menor and its shallow warm waters.

Every convenience is at your finger tips, large modern supermarket, some nice laid back bars, and an array of cosmopolitan restaurants all set against the back drop of sun, sea and a lovely marina.

Guestbook comments from the owner

'The apartment was excellent, I could not pick one fault with it or the area. The choice of restaurants in the local area and the marina were excellent' DP. London (Aug07)

'It is always a worry when you book somewhere you don't know or have not been before - we found everything was great. My wife, daughter & her friend enjoyed the local markets - Apartment good location, short distance from the shops, many restaurants and the beaches. Ideal as we don't hire a car when on holiday' PT. Swindon (Sept 07)

'Lovely apartment, perfect in every way. Lovely and clean, everything you could possible need - wonderful pool so close together with being so close to the marina and the restaurants - it was great' BL. Leeds (Sept 07)

'Had a lovely holiday and would only praise the apartment facilities and the cleanliness, could not fault anything. I would most certainly have no hesitation in recommending the apartment on your behalf to friends and family.' LL Birmingham (Oct 07)

Peaceful, relaxing just great

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the apartment last October (2008) We took my three year old daughter and we had a lovely time.

The weather was reasonable and we had a great time.

The apartment was incredibly clean and had everything that you could ever need - even the beach chairs, which were a real God send! never thought that I would do the washing but having a child it was great to have the washing machine on hand.

The only problem I had was the mosquitos! Not in the apartment but as we walked round - there had been storms the week before.

la Managa Strip is not the most picturesque place in the world but it was a lovely holiday and it is a safe place to take young children, with local parks etc.

Will definately be going back - especially if the apartment is available!

Thank you, it was just what we needed.

Owner's Response: Many thanks for some really nice feedback - it is unfortunate about the mosquitos following the storm they experienced. In all honesty the appearence of mosquitos are as rare as the storm that brought them in. We certainly will pass on the kind comments about the standard of cleanliness to the team that look after this and the other properties we have in the area.

Great location, full comfort, unbeatable price.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is in very good condition and offers everything you need for an extended stay. The location is perfect, with residential pool, nearby shopping, beaches, restaurants and marina. Mike spared no effort in making the arrangements uncomplicated and communication was perfect. We will definitely return and recommend this property to our friends.

Owner's Response: So pleased our guests continue to enjoy not only the area, which we believe is one of the "Best Kept Secret's" of Southern Spain - but the apartment and the service they received also complimented their break. We continue to review the standards offered both within the apartment and the added value we will also look for when offering Marinesco 2 to our visitors and we look forward to welcoming new and returning guests once more throughout the res of 2013 and into 2014.

Lovely relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

Our first visit to La Manga Strip was a great success. Brilliant weather and beautiful beaches. The apartment was lovely - clean, well maintained, well equipped and in a great location in that we didn't have too far to walk to the supermarket, beaches or restaurants. We also enjoyed being at the quieter end of the Strip. The apartment swimming pool and gardens were also clean and well maintained. We had dinner at a different restaurant at the Marina every night and they were all excellent, especially the Mexican and Pizza del Mare. There is an excellent bus service up and down the strip. We took the ferry from the Marina to Santiago de Riberia which was a lovely trip across the Mar Menor. The whole family enjoyed their La Manga holiday and we would thoroughly recommend this apartment to anyone.

A very relaxed and layed back holiday

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at the apt and was met by Ness who showed us around the apt, the welcome pack gave us a good start so we didn't have to rush to the supermarket.

I was really surprised by what a good supermarket Supersol was , it has everything and lovely fresh baguettes. just by the supermarket which opens at 9 in the morning you also have a Burger King and there are another couple of bars there but i don't know what they actually serve as we didn't use them they weren't really geared up for the season and some bars are still closed as we went out 4th May.

The marina has lots of bars but a bit limited to tapas and pizzas but a real good find is Marios, Chinese food at its best and Martin was an excellent front of house..

.Captain Moonies a bit further on varies from one night to the next so i cant recommend it , one night was really good , 2 nights later must have been a different chief , not the same meal at all.

Fabulous sunsets from this side of the Marina.

Round the other side was Sinatra s Tapas bar , Fabulous meatballs and the baked potatoes made by Rosa, Ness works here part time so this is where i found myself between 11 and 2 sat talking to Bill and Ness watching the world go by.

We went on the ferry to Santiago , it only takes 40 mins , 4 euro one way , market day it Wed at the top of the town, we also went on the Sunday and there was a craft fair on the front and all the kids rides where open , Buddies English bar is now called Barracuda , and they do a really good breakfast, you will find this if you go straight across the road from the ferry up a small back st and turn first right , it is on your left.

We would hire a car if going again ( only out of season as the strip get's really busy July August)

I found the buses on the strip a total wast of time , i only saw one all week.

Ness and Dave who look after the apt are really friendly and will do all they can to make sure your holiday goes well , i couldn't fault them , they keep the apt in tip top condition and it was spotless, the furniture is very nice , beds are very comfortable, the safe is in an awkward position in the bottom of the wardrobe but we managed . would i go here again , .................yes very possibly ,

would i recommend this apt , ...........yes most certainly,

once you get used to how quiet the strip is that is when you begin to appreciate its locality . The weather was fabulous with only 1 half days rain all week.

A lovely holiday.

Best apartment we have ever rented!

  • 5 of 5

We spent ten days in this apartment during June 2008, it is so well equipt, every time you thought 'oh it would be useful if there was a.....' you turned around, and there was one! It was spotlessly clean and furniture and beds very comfortable (not always the case in Spanish apartments). There was a problem with the TV when we arrived that affected the whole area, but the owner dealt with it very promptly so that it did not spoil the enjoyment of our break in Spain. We had never visited La Manga before, and found the area very interesting, however, if we went again we would hire a car, as there was a lack of shops, apart from the supermarket, in the immediate location, and public transport was a bit sporadic.

Owner's Response: Thanks to E & M for there very positive review on the apartment. With the marina, its restaurants and bars only two minutes away coupled with the Med & Mar Menor both a five minutes walk to their golden beaches - we find that a shopping trip hasn't always been top of our guests list. However, on the days when you want to explore further afield, it is good to have a car and have the peace of mind of making use of the private underground garage with direct access to the apartment, when it is not in use.

Holiday Stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the apartment May 2008 it was very clean, well maintained and extremely well equipped even the balcony had plenty of chairs. The pool and the grounds were also kept clean and well maintained. We found some very nice restaurants only a few minutes walk from the apartment and the supermarket is just a couple of minutes away. The marina and the promenade are lovely to walk round, the promenade leads to a lovely beach area with beautiful clear shallow water ideal for young children to play in. Opposite the beach there is a lovely restaurant shaped like a boat where we had a lovely meal we would also recommend Pizza del Mar in the marina good food really friendly staff. Neil and Christine.
