About the property

Spacious with3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 6+cot,2 terraces, rooftop solarium

This three bedroom townhouse is of the largest style on the very popular El Divino complex, stretching over three floors AND has it's own private garden with front & back terraces. The house comfortably sleeps 6 adults + a baby in the cot provided. The house is ideal for families with young children as it has been made to be very child friendly, with lots of equipment including stair-gates fitted top & bottom of the marble staircase, a travel cot, bed guard, high chair, potty & kids loo seat, changing mat & much more. The house is very well equipped & furnished to a very high standard with a brand new fitted kitchen installed in Summer 2014. The whole house is very well equipped & comfortably furnished. There are three spacious bedrooms all with wardrobes & ceiling fans, of which two with private balconies. The master bedroom has a double bed and there are two further twin rooms. Fully equipped newly fitted kitchen opens onto the private rear terrace. Very large living/dining area, two bathrooms (one on ground floor). Main bathroom upstairs is very spacious with a large corner bath & second bathroom is a shower room on the ground floor, ideal for the use of downstairs bedroom occupants. Private terraces front & back and private garden complete with table and chairs to the front, large private roof solarium with sunbeds, table/chairs, BBQ & views to the mountains. The complex's secure gated gardens accommodate two large pools, with separate children's pools, ideal for family holidays. El Divino complex is ideally located at just 10 minutes from Murcia airport & 45min from Alicante. In a peaceful area, 10 mins stroll from the beautiful Mar Menor beach & just a 5 minute stroll walk to plenty of local bars, shops, supermarkets & many restaurants. You most definitely do not need to hire a car if you do not want to as everything you need is well within walking distance.

Mar Menor: The gently sloping shallow waters of the Mar Menor mean it is much warmer than the Mediterranean, making it safer for young children as it is very placid & there is very good visibility across the water.You can walk out for many metres with the warm water still only lapping your thighs & no big waves, no tides or strong currents, so you can relax & enjoy your day at the beach. With the many cafes & bars dotted along the beach it's a great way to spend the day & soak up the sun. Every kind of water sport is available!

The mineral-rich water of the Mar Menor is renowned for its health-giving properties & there are nearby thermal baths which have existed since Roman times. The very salty water in the Mar Menor lagoon (San Pedro round to La Manga) is supposed to be very good to bathe in, especially for skin conditions. Many people come to the northern end of the Mar Menor to cover themselves in the black mud from the salinas, which is supposed to be full of all sorts of nutrients.

Flights & Transfers: Costa Calida is now more accessible than ever with numerous low cost airlines flying into both Murcia (San Javier MJV) & Alicante from all over the UK. There is a 2nd airport planned shortly just outside Murcia city itself.

Fly to Murcia (MJV) from all over the UK. Alicante (ALC) is itself only 45 mins drive away.

Fly to Murcia from all over the UK & EIRE on the numerous low cost carriers, and with the resort only a 10 min drive away you won't waste time in a car.

Shopping/Leisure: Los Alcazares was named after the palaces that stood in medieval times & is still unspoilt, retaining much of its original Spanish charm. Most of the narrow streets lead directly to the 7 km, sandy Blue Flag beach. There are plenty of restaurants & beach bars providing a wide range of cuisine. Los Alcazares offers a non-package-tour environment. With its wonderful all year round climate it has something for all seasons. The town's market days are Tuesday & Saturday when a wide variety of goods are available. There are also many modern high street shops & shopping malls within easy reach. The historic city of Murcia, is only 30 minutes by car, with its many squares & narrow streets & the city of Cartagena, which is only 15 minutes drive away, are both well worth exploring for their shops, architecture and history. A 40 minute drive will take you to Elche's vast shopping complex, where you can buy locally-made shoes (only available from Bond Street couture houses) at vastly reduced price

When I first viewed this property I fell in love with it! It was perfect for my family in size and location.

What makes this house unique

The house is in a lovely family orientated complex & only a few minutes walk from all amenities & the beach, which meant not having to rely on hiring a car - Ideal with the airport only being a 5 - 10 minute drive away - Perfect! :-)

April 2009 Palmer Holiday

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic holiday we had! The house was very clean and well layed out and was just like being home from home!! This was our first family holiday with our 2 children aged 3 and 2yrs. (the eldest being in a full leg cast!!") there was everything there that we could poss need from stairgates to potties and even a buggy! The neighbours were very friendly and gave us hints and tips about the area and even played with the children on the terrace! It is a lovely community and everyone is very friendly and says "Hola" Andrea has really got this property and equipment to a very high standard, she was very helpfull when we asked questions and we recieved plenty of information regarding the house, area, restaurants and attractions. The beach is lovely and has a path all the way along if you don't want to get sand between your toes!! There are also plenty of childrens parks dotted around which also came in handy. Plenty of places to stop and have drink and bite to eat, we went to El Patio it was fantastic! Like Andrea says it looks nothing from the outside but the food is excellent- you have to try the meat cooked on hot stone! We enjoyed it so much we went back for another visit! Another place you get a good sandwich is The Pasty Shack if you fancy a sandwich try the ham on the bone sandwich! Really nice and the owners are lovely too. We would certainly recommend this property to families it is fantastic value for money and you can relax knowing your children are safe playing on the front terrace as it has secure gates which can be locked. Brilliant. We loved it so much we have booked again for 2010! Fantastic.

Perfect for young and old!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Casa Lola for the new year, myself and my wife, 2 girls 8 & 5 and my parents both in there 80's.

We loved the house, the area, the pool and the weather, the girls even went for a swim on New Year's Day!!! The ground floor bedroom and shower room were perfect for my parents as my father struggles with stairs, the upstairs rooms were plenty big enough with a huge family bathroom. The newly fitted kitchen was great and catered for the few nights we ate in with ease.

The local bars and restaurants in the square are within easy walking distance and the supermarket is close by too as is the beach, we spent some time in the local area and also visited the Flamingos at San Pedro and the beautiful city of Cartegena 1/2 hour drive away.

We found the whole experience perfect, the key holder met us as arranged and showed us around, the house was clean and well presented clean towels and bed linen provided meant we didn't need to bring them as additional luggage and the girls were happy they could watch CBeebies on the tv. When we left once again the key holder met us as arranged and everything went smoothly.

Overall a great experience and a great house, we will be back again when we next visit Spain.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review, I am very pleased that you all thoroughly enjoyed your stay in our home and that it suited your entire family's needs so well. Yes the ground floor bedroom and shower room are ideal for guests that would rather not have to climb any stairs, I often get families with grandparents staying with them for that very reason. I will pass your praises on to my key holder about her service, she is certainly very thorough and very reliable. You and your family are of course most welcome back anytime. Thank you once again for your booking.

We stayed here to celebrate our golden wedding anniversary with family who live in the area. The property is a lovely clean and comfortable house within easy walking distance to shops, markets, cafés and beach areas and all on the flat, a novelty for us living in a hilly area. The property is very close to Murcia's San Javier airport so not much more than 10 minutes to travel on arrival.

We look forward to staying in this property again in the future and can highly recommend it.

Owner's Response: I am really pleased that you enjoyed your stay in our home so much and that it enabled you to have some valuable family time. Yes all amenities such as the shops & restaurants are conveniently located just a few minutes walk away, with the beach just a few minutes further which is ideal if you do not wish to hire a car. This was a very important factor when I first purchased the house many years ago. You are of course most welcome back anytime, we look forward to seeing you again soon. Many thanks for your booking.

Perfect for families

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful property that is well set up for those who have a young family. Everything you could possibly need for young children was there including cot sides, high chair and stair gates. Easy, flat, walk to the shops and the beach. We hired a car and saw a little more of the area which has lots to offer for all ages. When we return we will definitely be booking this property again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to leave a review Sharon, I am pleased that you and your family really enjoyed your stay our property and that it met your needs as a young family. I do try to make it a home from home to ensure guests have the best/most relaxing time. I know only too well how the little things like adequate children's equipment such as stair gates can make all the difference to the 'grown ups' so I try to think of everything. And yes all amenities are within walking distance so those that do not wish to hire a car really do not need to. I look forward to welcoming you back again in 2018!

Have just returned from staying 10 days in Andi's house and am missing it already.

  • 5 of 5

This is a excellent holiday home is really well equipped, clean and tidy and in a lovely area. Being two older couples we did not need all the equipment that there is for children, but we may have to return with grandchildren one day to make use of all this. We did use the shopping trolley though to go to the supermarket. It was also very nice of Andi to arrange for a welcome pack for us especially when we didn't arrive until evening. The pool area is excellent and lovely and clean. We ate out every night at various restaurants and didn't have one bad meal, we particularly liked Run,(the restaurant that did chinese, vietman etc) Veni , Patio IV and the Italian one that seems to be connected to the 525 Hotel. Would definitely go again to this area and hopefully stay in Andi's house.

Owner's Response: I am very pleased that you all enjoyed your stay in our home so much and that you loved the area. We are very lucky to have such a choice of quality (yet inexpensive) places to eat and/or drink out and all within walking distance. I can't think of a single restaurant that I wouldn't recommend! Yes the house and complex are always kept to a top standard of cleanliness, we are very proud of that. And you are of course most welcome back anytime - with or without the grandchildren! I always try to ensure that the toys and of the rest of our equipment cover all our guests needs. Thanks again - Andi

Perfect for a family holiday

  • 5 of 5

The house is exceptionally clean and well equipped. Providing beach and bath towels is such a bonus and made packing easier. We had a fun holiday at Casa Lola, making the most if the beautiful pool area every day - amazingly it never seemed crowded - and going down to the lovely beach. The choice of restaurants for the evening were great. It's so convenient to walk into town and then choose from a huge range of restaurants. We loved Asiatica, a Chinese restaurant that served lovely food. The property is perfect for a family holiday and we had a brilliant time. Thank you so much!

The area enjoys ave 320 days of sunshine each year to it's blue flag beaches. Bars, cafes & restaurants provide drinks, tapas, meals & entertainment. The warm water of the Mar Menor (ave 1-3 degrees warmer than the Med) helps make the town a paradise for bathers & water sports enthusiasts. The fertile countryside keeps the local markets well stocked bundles of fresh produce so the local restaurants are packed with wonderful fresh food. The area offers boundless opportunities for sports & other activities. No less than 7 golf courses can be found within a short drive, with 2 new ones under construction within the town itself. Not to mention the world renowned La Manga Club only 15min drive away. 'Copyright - Used with permission.'
