PENTHOUSE WITH STUNNING VIEWS OF TOMAS MAESTRE MARINA

La Manga Strip Apartment Rental Photos and Description

3 bed 2 bath, luxury penthouse with huge solarium with BBQ, sleeps 6

This stunning 3 bed penthouse is over three floors with a fabulous private rooftop solarium, BBQ and shower on the top. It is ideal for a family holiday or just a romantic break for two. In just a two minute stroll you have all the bars and International restaurants around the Tomas Maestre Marina. It is ideal to just sit and watch the sun go down over the Mar Menor with its fantastic sunsets There is also a large supermarket with fresh bread, fish, fruit and just about every thing you would want. From the marina you can go scuba diving, sailing wind surfing or just take the ferry to the other side of the Mar Menor for just 4 euros. The penthouse overlooks the communal gardens with its 3 communal pools and sun bathing area and for the more energetic there is a tennis court. There are sea views from all balcony/terraces and fabulous 180 degree west facing views over the marina and the sea beyond from the private rooftop solarium.

A car is not necessary in this location because there are lots of things to do, but if you wanted to explore the rest of the strip you can hire a bike or take the bus which runs up and down the strip daily

Thank you: I just had to write and thank you for our holiday in your wonderful penthouse. This was the first time we had booked the cheap flights and made a booking of an apartment in this way on the internet. I was a bit nervous, but we were met at the airport and taken to the penthouse. As soon as we opened the door it was 'WOW' but when we went up to the solarium we were speechless!! We will be back, it was a great family holiday. It gave us the space and freedom, which you don't get in a hotel. The children loved the fact that they could play in the pool or go off on their bikes. We enjoyed the walk around the marina and the restaurants. It worked out so 'cheap' compared to other holidays, but so enjoyable!! We will now be able to take 2 holidays a year. Thank you once again Sue, Dave, Mark, Tina and Sam

La Manga Glub Golf and Leisure Facilities: For leisure golf there is a 9 hole pitch and putt just 3 km down the La Manga Strip, but for the enthusiast it is just a 25 minute drive to the 5 star La Manga Club, with its 3 golf courses and leisure facilities. This is a popular place for UK football teams to do their pre season or pre cup training.

Guestbook comments from the manager
The apartment was very spacious and we had lots of privacy. The gardens were lovely, pool was fabulous and restaurants extremely good. Given it was October I’m guessing it was quieter than during peak season but this was fine for us. We wanted peace and quiet and relaxation and that’s exactly what we got. Jo was really helpful and just at the end of a phone call if we needed her.



Thank you for making it easy to book and hassle free, I really appreciate that. Apartment was well equipped and we lacked for nothing with the supermarket stocking pretty much everything we needed. Restaurants in the Marina were fantastic.

LOVELY PENTHOUSE APARTMENT WITH STUNNING VIEWS!

  • 5 of 5
I booked this apartment with John,the owner,over the phone,he was very helpful and it was simple and straightforward.i booked the airport transfers with suntransfers who were cheap and reliable.we were met promptly at the apartment block by Jo,the manager.she showed us round and told us where things were,again very helpful.we had ordered a welcome pack as we arrived after 8.30pm which contained all we needed to tide us over until the shops opened the next morning. The apartment had a well stocked kitchen and nicely decorated throughout.the choice of 2 balconys and sun terrace gave a few options of where to eat and relax. The built in barbecue on the terrace was used a couple of times with steaks and fresh sea food bought from the local supermarket which was about 5 minutes walk away.the views from the sun terrace as the sun was setting were beautiful,very private for a spot of sunbathing too.the 3 pools on the complex were closed because it was early in the season but we went to the beach,about 10 minutes walk,lovely quiet and clean with life guards on duty,very safe for little ones as you can walk out a long way and still only be waist deep.we got nets and spades and the kids spent hours digging holes and trying to catch fish and crabs.the complex seemed well maintained and although on the 5th floor,the lift was super fast! The harbour contained more restaurants than we could hope to visit in a week,but we visited Mona Lisa a couple of times,had a great tapas lunch and a steak dinner.
We had a ride on the ferry over to San Javier,about 40mins. We only stayed 2 hours as we realised it was just a busier version of la manga,which we preferred but worth a visit.
The apartment has free wifi and English TV channels which was a big hit with a 14 & 11 year old. A good time was had by all and I would definitely stay here again,hopefully without the kids!

PERFECT. EXACTLY WHAT WE WERE LOOKING FOR.

  • 5 of 5
This was our first proper holiday with our 18 month old baby (and grandparents/babysitters) along with us and this apartment suited our needs perfectly. However, I have to say that things did not start off well. We booked a car from the airport using the recommended company (Brian from Casa Connexions) and stipulated that we needed a baby chair. Of course, we step off the plane and Brian arrived with no baby chair and a poor excuse about how his pal had let him down. This made for a pretty tense journey on the way there for us and ended up costing about the same as if we had just got an airport cab.

Once at the apartment, this was quickly forgotten though. We were met and quickly booked into an alternative car service for our return journey while being shown round this fantastic apartment. This put us at ease straight away and we were assured that if there were any further issues, they would be dealt with quickly.

It is clean, has wifi and is a good size. The pool is massive and the baby pool and great at the end of a hot day. Views from the balconies and the roof top are a real highlight. The lights twinkling in the marina as the sun sets behind the hills on the opposite shore is a view that will stick with me.

It has a great location. 2 mins from a supermarket, another 2 mins from the beach in one direction or the marina in the other. The beach is great as well. Our daughter loved it as it was so calm and shallow at the same time. We tried the beach on the Mediterranean side which was also of a high standard but not as suitable for a toddler. More than enough bars and restaurants in the area to keep you going. I would definitely recommend the French restaurant there (I know it's Spain but the food was excellent). The coffee and toast with tomato at the cafe just at the end of the road was also some of the best in the area that we tried for breakfast.

Things were a bit quieter when we were there as everywhere was just getting ready for the very busy holiday season but, as I said, this suited us and it wasn't like it was a ghost town by any means. Plenty to do and the fact the restaurants were not mobbed meant you always got a table and the waiters had time to chat.

We definitely intend to go back to this apartment next year given the value for money, quality of the apartment and feel of the area for us as a young family, We won't get Brian to pick us up at the airport again though.

A GREAT 2 WEEKS!

  • 5 of 5
Had a great 2 weeks, went with my husband, 2 children, aged 4 & 2, and 2 other adults. Apartment was clean and comfortable.
The area is very quiet, there are 2 supermarkets 5 minute walk away and on a Saturday there is a small market just behind the apartments. The marina is about 10 minute walk away with loads of restaurants.
We spent most of our time by the pool and most days we had it to ourselves which was fantastic and the rest of the time we were up on the solarium.
Will hopefully be returning next year.

Owner's Response: I am so pleased that you had a wonderful holiday. June is often quiet with wonderful weather. It gets very busy in August when all the Spanish come down from Madrid etc. We love it at all times of the year. We look forward to hearing from you when you are ready to book again.

FABULOUS PENTHOUSE & HOLIDAY

Fabulous penthouse & Holiday
  • 5 of 5
Had a wonderful family holiday stayed 10 nights.

As a regular visitor of La manga i found this penthouse ideal and in the perfect location on the strip. within a short waking distance to all surrounding beaches , mariner, bars , restaurants bus stop pharmacy and supermarket just round the corner and a market that is a stone throw away for local produce leather goods , jewellery etc. once a week.

You could take a short stroll to the bars and restaurants and sit with a beautiful sunset and marina absolutely stunning.

A restaurant you must visit is Marios! live singing from Mario himself friendly staff and tasty food.

The Mexican restaurant is highly recommended
You will be spoilt for choice with the many restaurants to eat in.

A fab karaoke and cocktail bar restaurant on way to marina is well worth a visit.


To sum up la manga and the penthouse This is an ideal place for relaxation away from any hustle and bustle friendly people perfect setting to recharge .

The Penthouse was perfect with everything you could possibly ask for inside . rooms were lovely with stunning views. The roof top terrace with its BBQ was stunning views out of this world and a sun trap for sun worshipers but with plenty of umbrellas if you wanted shade, you could eat up on the roof and have BBQ with the family, and watch the sun set and the marina twinkle at night.

The penthouse was spotless clean well kept with everything as described.

Will definitely visit again soon

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for this wonderful review, It is so lovely to hear that you had a fantastic holiday and loved our penthouse and the Marina. John and I have been unable to visit the area for 2 years due to family and work commitments, but you have rekindled our love of the area and will have to make time to visit again. It is nice to know that Jo our Property Manager is doing a fantastic job with the change overs and maintenance. Your description transported me back to the solarium with the smell of the BBQ and the view over the marina - Magic. Please let us know when you would like to visit again. Gill and John

STUNNING VIEW, STUNNING APARTMENT!!!

  • 5 of 5
What can I say?!? This apartment is fantastic! We chose it for the terrace and the view and we couldn't have asked for more. The whole apartment is beautifully finished - I loved the 'Africa' theme throughout. Having 2 bathrooms between the 4 of us was a bonus too. The apartment was very well equipped and the welcome pack was very substantial!! The terrace was stunning and private! We had a much needed quiet break here - eating out at night at different restaurants around the marina, wandering about in the day or taking advantage of the terrace. I really would recommend this apartment and would definitely go back.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much, it is nice to hear that you had a great time. I love the terrace/ solarium on the top too, the views of the Tomas Maestre Marina and the Mar Menor are amazing and unless you have been there you can not appreciate how private and secluded it is. For just a few minutes, you transported me there with your lovely description xx

This is a wonderful place for a family holiday or a romantic holiday for two, what ever you like doing you will find it on the La Manga Strip. You have the choice of two beaches, the calm, warm, crystal clear waters of the Mar Menor, ideal for your children as it is also very shallow, or in 50 yards the Med with it's wide sand beaches and rolling waves, ideal for wind surfing or fishing. It is an area where the Spanish like to go on holiday and you will soon find out why. Many visitors like to take the ferry to Sandiago de Ribera on a Wednesday for the market or just the pleasure of the boat trip. The Tomas Mastre Marina is a very pleasant place to take long leisurely walks, soaking up the sun and the scenery or just people watching or practising your spanish with the waiters. My favourite relaxation is to visit the restaurants on the left of the marina and watch the sun go down with a glass of wine of course!! Pure Bliss!!
