Overview

Cartagena - Mar Menor Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Luxury Spacious Ground Floor apartment with private balcony & patio/garden

Beautiful Luxury Spacious Ground Floor apartment with private balcony & own large garden/patio area. We have stunning views of the mountains and over look the beautiful communal gardens. The apartment has Air Conditioning/heater, Washing Machine, Freesat by Sky TV (English), Spanish TV, Shared Pool, 5 min walk to Beach, Restaurants & Bars. 10 Minute drive to large shopping malls and just 5 mins drive to the renowned La Manga Club & La Manga Strip. The area is very quiet, but centrally located and offers something for everyone. The beach at Mar de Cristal is an inland sea so ideal for young children, but just 5 mins away the waves on the med is ideal for surfers. Nearest golf courses are located at The La Manga Club, but there are over 10 courses within an hours drive.

The Costa Calida is on the South East coast and is the driest region of Spain, enjoying an average of 320 days of sunshine each year. It is therefore ideal for holidays all year round. The Mar Menor is the largest salt water lake in Europe which is linked to the Mediterranean and famous for its Therapeutic Properties. It enjoys warm shallow waters as part of the inland sea, and its ideal for all water sports. The waters of the Mar Menor are warmer than the Mediterranean. There are approximately 42 Kilometres of beaches and the area around the Mar Menor is relatively flat and has numerous villages along the coastline. This makes it an ideal area for walking or cycling. The Calblanque National Park is located just a few mins away.

This is our third time at Tina's apartment and each time it is great.though we only use it for sleeping ,we don't cook on holiday but there are more pots and pans to do a full meal for a army.lots of beding and towels.we always have a car and there are some excellent eating places close by.for a good meal at a reasonable price there is the campsite 3 course meal for 3 adults 4beers2 bottles wine and brandy only 76 euros and you are overlooking the mar.we went 3times so can't be bad and really friendly but try a bit of Spanish lingo.overall the apartment had sun shades and chairs to take around pool or beach.The lady next door remembered us again.

Owner's Response: Hi Russell & Family, So pleased you enjoyed your stay again. We have tried to put everything in the apartment to suit everyone (I personally don't cook there either), because as you mentioned there are no many lovely restaurants in the area (many at very reasonable prices) that you don't need to cook. Hope to welcome you back again in the future. Best wishes Tina

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Hi, we haven't been to this part of Spain before and decided to have a short break to see what it was like. The apartment is really nice, very well presented, and ideal for anyone.

The facilities were good and the decor modern and very comfortable.

We arrived very late in the evening and had arranged for some water and milk etc, to be bought for us. Nothing was too much trouble.

The apartment is about a 10-15 minute walk to the beach where you will find some of the restaurants an bars. All very nice.

We would recommend a visit to Los Bolones as there are some very good restaurants.

We would also recommend the use of a car to explore the other lovely sites in the area.

Would definitely consider going back.

Thanks Gary & Val

Fabulous!!!!!!! Fantastic!!!!! Supreme!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Hi - me and my family had a great time in Islas Menores.

The sea is so warm, that I personally prefer swimming pool, though my wife and mum adore the place. La Manga (for night entertainment with all night bus service) was a stone through, and a great AquaPark near by (http://torrevieja.aquopolis.es/?lang=en)

Now about the apartment - it spacious, modern, well equip.

Kitchen facilities are great, in the salon there is even DVD collection + plenty of board games, pencils and other books for children.

Absolutely great solution Tina did with airport collection/drop off.There is a cheaper car rental in la Manga, so you don't have to get car from airport.

Also a fact that Tina has an account in UK saves you couple quids when dealing with booking and deposit. Roger and Jan are there if you need any help or assist - so you can relax in comfort.

English people around were very polite and friendly, though cannot say that same about Spanish - as I'm speaking Spanish - it was a disappointment how reluctant they were to speak with us.

All together great place in Murcia for relaxing, peaceful family stay.

Owner's Response: Hi Pavel, So pleased you had a great holiday. The aqua park is brilliant, but also can't recommend enough Terra Natura Zoo and water park in Murcia, it amazing!! Glad the apartment had everything you needed, we try to cover most things - we now have wifi installed. My Spanish neighbours in Spain (on the corner) are lovely, but its such a shame others were not more forthcoming, think it depends on time of year and who is staying there. We have a community party in August and they have always insisted we attend and have made us very much a part of it (despite my very poor attempts to speak the language!!). Hope to welcome you back again in the future. Best wishes Tina

This is the second time we have stopped her just great if you want a quite holiday Apartment has every thing you need we are not ones to take picnics but this year we did as there was two cool boxes and ice blocks as well which keep the drinks cold for the beach brought a cooked chicken from the marked and had one of the best picnics for years Though you don't need a car it was handy to get to other beaches close by One of the best places to eat close by was at la manga. Camping went four times this yearThings do change and a few places were closed down this year the apartment had everything you want a lovely pool just outside the front door although we did not use it very much but did not seam to be.busy Spanish lady remembered us.

Fantastic holiday - lovely apartment!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 3 weeks at this excellent apartment during August 2010. Clean, safe and well equipped. Our two young sons (3 and 6 years) loved the pool. The beach was wonderful! Nice quiet and unspoilt resort. We didn't hire a car, but one would be useful if you want to explore further afield. We took an enjoyable train ride through the mountains to Cartagena.

Janice & Roger live opposite - and are an exceptional couple who are at hand if you need any help or advice during your stay.

We recommend this apartment - especially if you like being on the ground floor, with lots of outside space and yet still great views of the mountains!

We are located in the peaceful village of Mar de Cristal. Our apartment is approximately 300m (10 minute stroll) from the beach, small marina, shops and beach bars/ restaurants. A 15 to 20 minute walk brings you to a lovely picturesque village of Los Belones, which has national and international restaurants at reasonable prices. La Manga Club is around 5 minutes by car and this offers championship golf courses, tennis courts, spa facilities and also a very good selection of bars and restaurants. The La Manga strip which is also about a 5 minute drive is a busy area that has a large selection of shops, hotels, bars and nightlife. Also located here is a wide choice of water sports in 1 of the 10 centres located along the strip.

The Costa Calida is on the South East coast and is the driest region of Spain, enjoying an average of 320 days of sunshine each year. It is therefore ideal for holidays all year round. The Mar Menor is the largest salt water lake in Europe.
