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.
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!
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.
Fabulous relaxing holiday
Absolutely love this apartment. So quiet and relaxing and the most comfortable bed ever! Apartment has 2 air conditioning units so it is lovely and cool. There is everything you need in the apartment, so you can eat out or relax and enjoy some food in your own space with music or TV. The lights on the balcony just make it the perfect place to sit looking out towards the sea. I will definitely be returning, there is so much to see in the area and unfortunately I was only there for 4 days. Thanks Juliet
Thank you for your lovely appreciation Linda!
It will be a pleasure to have you return : -)
Neat very clean appartment in Playa Honda
I booked a week in Spain for my mum as she had complained that the summer in Ireland had been terrible. We were just heading to our spring in Australia after a long winter so it suited me too.
The appartment is not situated on the La Manga strip rather it is on the Mar Menor side. It is quiet here and it is not a close walk to the Mediterranean sea.
However the appartment is spotlessly clean, neat and compact. Two bedrooms, one bathroom and a kitchen lounge area leading on to a balcony. There are air conditioning in longer area and main bedroom and fans in all rooms other than bathroom. The second bedroom has little ventilation as the windows are sealed shut - probably due the children issue and safety. It does make stuffy at night though.
Everything else is just Perfect!. Juliet is a fabulous host. Responsive, and knowledgeable. Grahame came and collected us from the airport is lovely and knowledgeable too.
There is a great supermarket over the street run by Lollie who is a real sweetie. Yes, it is quiet, no it isn't the night life but it's safe and calm. Great little spot.
Must do's -
Hire a car from the as airport
Go to the Sunday market at Cabo de Palos- fantastic!
So glad you and your Mum had a good time Ruth. Its good to have the feedback re 2nd bedroom windows - which the previous guest asked us to seal - I will get Air Conditioning sorted for that room too. Also its a short walk to the bus stop and a quick journey by air conditioned bus to the Med beaches and La Manga. The bus also goes to Cartagena, so its not essential to hire a car.
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.
