About Mrs Juliet Bonnet
I have been a therapist for the past 30 years, and live in London. With the help of a very competent and helpful concierge, I am able to enjoy sharing the pleasures of the Mar Menor, La Manga, and the Murcia region with our guests.
Mrs Juliet Bonnet purchased this Apartment in 2008
Why Mrs Juliet Bonnet chose Diputación de Rincón de San Ginés
I wasn't planning to buy a 2nd apartment, but when I saw the view , it was so breath-taking,I had to have it! I love to wake up to see the sun shimmering on the sea and on the balcony, and to eat breakfast there in the gentle warmth,and to see both the Mar Menor and the Mediterannean Seas. Even in winter it is uplifting!
What makes this Apartment unique
To be able to walk out of the apartment and onto the beach is fantastic! As is the cleanliness of the sea, its healing properties, and how safe it is for swimming or just floating. Our beach is never crowded! And you can cycle or walk for miles along the promenade.
Pool / Spa
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Great place to stay!
Just got back from a lovely holiday in this great apartment! Juliette the owner couldn't have been more helpful and Debbie the key holder gave us lots of tips on where to go and what to see. She also picked us up and dropped us back off at the airport. Had a lovely meal in Malvasia, great food in Refugios and Casablanca beach bars and loved going into Cabo de Palos on the bus. We also walked to Los Nietos and got the little train into Cartagena & hired bikes in La Manga and cycled along the strip. Everything really inexpensive. Would definitely recommend here if you get chance to go 🙂
Thank you for those kind words; It was delightful to have such appreciative guests!
Stunning Views, Comfortable Stay, great facilities, friendly owner & team.
The owner & staff couldn't do enough for us, very informative, friendly, the apartment was very clean, everything on our doorstep, shops, restaurants etc. Great local facilities, travel choices.. We would certainly come back again.
Stunning Views, Exceptional Owner
The views are stunning from the 8th floor. The pool is visible from the balcony which is great for watching over children and the play area is directly outside the entrance to the building. The apartment provided a comfortable base to explore the wonderful surrounding coastline. The owner Juliet was exceptional and exceeded any expectations of providing information. She answered all our many questions usually instantly and was happy to talk in person over the phone. She provided information of local taxi providers for airport pickups and as our main objective was viewing property she was also especially helpful with this too, recommending local estate agents.
We would definitely return ourselves and recommend to others 😁�
Many thanks for your generous review Tracey!
And I am pleased that you now have deceided to buy in this relatively undiscovered part of Spain, now that you have seen the pleasures of having both the Mar Menor and the Mediterranean seas within walking distance.
Even in the height of summer, Playa Paraiso beach doesn't get over-full.
homely but a bit tired
It had everything you could have needed - home from home - down to hair dryer/umbrella/beach furniture. The owner was very accommodating with suggesting restaurants etc. Great location for exploring.
The only niggle was the bathroom was a bit tired looking and the shower was very weak.
Thanks for the review Tracy, and glad you enjoyed your stay.
the shower head has now been changed and is once again powerful, and the bathroom is being revamped in a few weeks time. Will send you the photos when its been done : -)
Perfect and Stunning Location! with amazing views over the Mar Menor and beyond.
My husband and I have just returned from this beautiful location in this front line beach apartment looking over the lovely calm waters of the Mar Menor, and views over to the La Manga Strip which we walked a few times along the shores to get there it's about 40 mins walk at a slow and relaxed pace, once your there you get to the Meditarainian side with lots of bars and resturaunts along the front, we particularly like the Surfers Bar and PaddyWacks Irish Bar. We loved the contrast between the two seas.
Also we had a day out to Cartagena which is well worth a visit we took the bus which cost €5.20 return for the both of us on a comfortable air conditioned bus. We loved the absolutely amazing marina with its beautiful promanade and bar/resturaunts, also the City has lots of beautiful historic buildings.
We where met at the airport by Graham who manages the apartment with his wife Debbie the cost from the airport is €35.
The apartment is owned by Juliet who is most helpful with all the info to help you really enjoy your stay and its so important to her that you do just that. She has provided everything you need in her well equipped home from home beach retreat, must say we found the bed really comfortable and I'm fussy about beds with my back problems lol.
From the balcony the views just took our breath away the 1st morning we woke as we arrived late at night, and didn't want to leave on our day of departure.
Also just want to mention Juliet booked us a table at the Award Winning Resturaunt Malvasia for our Wedding Anniversary highly recommend for that special meal which is just round the corner.
To sum it up we really enjoyed our stay very relaxing and would highly recommend to friends and family.
Thank you Anita for such a lovely review!
And its true, it gives me great pleasure to cherish my guests.
Our part of Spain, - the area between the 2 Seas - is not well known - which has the advantage of being less crowded in summer, and its very special to be on the shores of one, and within walking distance of the other, and yet to have easy access to culture, sport, eating out and shopping too.
Warm and cosy!
The apartment was bigger and nicer than I was expecting. Having the tiled floors was especially nice on hot days and the fantastic view from the Balcony!
Overall it was well located and the supermarkets are easy to get to. Felt safe and was fairly quiet considering.
Also you HAVE to go to Malvasia restaurant which is a short walk away!!
I am definitely going to visit again in the future!
Playa Paraiso is conveniently located for daily markets, Inexpensive sports center, international standard golf, tennis, spa and gym. A marine reserve offers scuba lessons + varied marine life and shipwrecks.
These and the bright lights are all 5 minutes drive away. Also nearby are riding,waterskiing, sail, kite & windsurf schools,a big go-cart track and fishing trips. Our view is directly onto the Mar Menor sea, with its warm, shallow waters (up to 30º in summer).The mineral-rich, high-saline waters alleviate arthritis and skin conditions,promote post-operative healing, and are also perfect for swimmers and young children. A sports centre is a few minutes walk. Cartagena and Murcia offer culture, entertainment and shopping .Playa Honda with its beach bar, bus, supermarket and restaurants is a couple of minutes stroll..The protected undeveloped beaches of Calblanque are a few minutes away. Bicycles can be hired. You can dine on the beach to the sound of the waves overlooking the Med, or try paragliding.The seafood is outstanding. Murcia airport only 20 minutes away, and Alicante an hour..
Cafes,restaurants, chiringuitos, beach bars,supermarket and sports centre are just a few minutes walk.
Other Activities: go carts,kite surfing, casino, spa,canooing, arthritis/psoriasis treatments bowling, sailing,riding.
Golf: Although situated on the beach, we are just 5 minutes drive from the La Manga Golf and Sports club. Its 3 x 18 hole courses often host the Open. There's also pitch and putt, numerous other sports, spa, restaurants and Casino. Its open all year round to the public, but is expensive to stay there. We are also within driving distance of several other courses (please ask us for details).
For non-golfing moments or family members, there's so much else on offer; from nature reserve beaches, sand dunes and trails to walk, cycle or ride, to city sophistication. Drive 5 minutes to The Strip for the beaches, bars and restaurants of the Mediterranean side, then cross over the road to the Mar Menor - like a healing, warm bath in the summer.
Both our apartments can sleep 6, and we are happy to accommodate stays of less than a week. Car hire or chauffering can be arranged. The golf courses of Vilamartin, Las Ramblas, Campoamor, La Finca and Altoreal are also under 45 minutes drive. We are well-situated for the annual international festivals: Mar de Musicas, Jazz, Flamenco, Romans and Carthaginians, and Semana Santa, as well as important archeological permanent exhibitions. And, as mentioned, the La Manga Strip, approximately 23 km long, offers nearly 46 km of beaches and designated cycle tracks, plus eating, drinking and shopping.
