Our house is the end property in a row of 8 that face the canal 'El Estacio' in La Manga. It is south facing and has amazing views down La Manga strip and across the Mediterranean. Downstairs is an open plan sitting / living room with a redesigned kitchen. There is also a large storage room and downstairs shower room as well as front and rear patios. The rear patio has an awning and opens onto the private garden and BBQ area. Upstairs there are 2 double rooms and one twin with custom made fitted wardrobes and a family bathroom. The master bedroom leads out onto a large balcony which has access to a huge sun terrace on top. The beach is just over the road and the development has a communal pool which is open during the high season. There is a supermarket, bars, and a couple of restaurants within walking distance and just over the bridge the marina provides a wealth of different restaurants, 2 more supermarkets, a pharmacy, banks, dive schools, etc.
TV: There are both English speaking channels and Spanish.
We enjoyed our three night stay at the beach house. The house was well maintained and clean. The beds were comfortable and clean with good pillows. The kitchen had all the dishes, pans and appliances needed. The second floor balcony had great views of the canal and the roof top has a panoramic view of the beach and the canal. It's a wonderful safe place to walk along the canal in the back of the house or along the beach across the street in the front. There are many good restaurants. Pulpito restaurant gave us a comical roll of toilet paper because all the markets were closed and there wasn't any toilet paper in the house, very nice of them.
Thank you Jon for sharing your house.
The description of the property is as it stands in the announcement , so we had no surprises. The location is fantastic for those who want to spend a family holiday. We were welcomed and house conditions and location are great . The beach is even close. The supermarket is relatively close , and it has everything we need. I would strongly recommend . To repeat in coming years.
So I have stayed in a lot of vrbo vacation homes, so I am comparing this home to a lot of amazing homes. We had 2 elderly parents and a 1.5 year old.
Pretty good location, not a condo as is a lot of places around this area. This is town house. Awesome roof terrace. Pretty nice beach right across the street. Little convenience store literally 50 steps away where I bought milk, super glue (had to buy a lot of things actually). Has washing machine and drying racks that you can lay your clothes out to dry in the sun. Has some beach toys (floating alligator, sand pail). Restaurant and gelato place less than a km away, walkable. Parking spot right in front (free) so you didn't have any steps when you brought your groceries or luggage in. Had a baby high chair. Removable shower head=easy to hose down a baby. Nice backyard, fun to watch the ships go by. Safe area. Retractable shade for table in backyard. Air conditioner worked well, as well as ceiling fans. Has a bike, but I didn't ride it. Has hair dyer. Lots of wine glasses. Very clean. Beds comfortable. Nice closets.
We had a toddler with us, so stair that was missing a handrail was a bit scary (but manageable ). No beach towels. Not in a busy part of town, but nice if u want to get away. Did not have a boogie board, umbrella or sun shade, or that many beach things (had to buy beach towels, mats, etc).But when I asked the property management company they brought some over (as well as a travel baby bassinet that they forgot to set up for us ) right away, so 5 stars to the management company! No screens on doors or windows, but didn't really have a problem with bugs. Family of stray cats in backyard are beggars, come right up to you when you are trying to eat. No extra toilet paper or paper towels (see convenience store comment above). No instructions or info book about how to work the washing machine, doors (some don't lock or close well), nor the area. Doors upstairs slam really hard at night with the trade winds. Shower upstairs = beautiful! but not designed well! as shower head higher than door, so water leaks onto floor everywhere. You need to hold the shower head to prevent that from happening, luckily, it is a removable shower head. Shower downstairs=very tight, not spacious. No laundry or dish washing detergent. Washing machine small. No dryer. Supermarket is across bridge, about 1.5 km away, need a car. Bathrooms don't have a place to put your stuff down (no wall ledge, table , etc).
This property is in a lovely location. Much of the property around is Spanish owned. It is across the road from the beach and swimming pool
It's near to shops and restaurants and is very well equipped. The owners are really helpful
You need to take your own beach towels
We really enjoyed our eleven night stay thank you
My husband and our two children spent 10 days here to try and catch some late sun – we were not disappointed!
The house was beautifully clean and well equipped with all those small details which so many forget – especially if you like to cook at home.
For the four of us, the house was plenty big enough and it was nice to have a garden for the children to play in while I was watching over them from the window. The views from the garden are good but even better from the balcony off the main bedroom.
It was a real plus to have a good, fast internet connection, although there was a small problem while we stayed but the owner was quick to help out –
There are a number of beaches close by, so no long car journeys! It was also handy to have two supermarkets -
‘SuperCor’ was always open but quite expensive so we tended to go to ‘Upper’. On Saturday mornings there was also a local market just 1.5km away.
We would certainly recommend and will hopefully be back with my parents early next year!
We have not long been back having spent two weeks in Kellys and Jons house in La Manga. The house is located on the La Manga strip right in front of the canal which joins the Mediterranean and Mar Menor seas. The view from the garden (or either of the two terraces) is brilliant as you can just sit there sipping your wine while watching all the boats sail-by within arms reach! An Absolute privilege!
The property was beautifully clean, well maintained and has everything you would need for a self catering holiday – including Uk tv with all the soaps!. Having said this, when we weren’t on the beach we spent nearly all our time on the patio enjoying the view!
La Manga strip is a lovely quiet area where you can always find an uncrowded bit of beach. Within a short walk is the the harbour where there are a number of bars and restaurants, including the Paque boat where we often ended-up watching the sunset over the Mar Menor.
Just off the main road, front-line to the canal at 'El Estacio' the house is ideally located as a holiday destination. Just over the road there is a bus stop which runs up and down La Manga all day long - with more services in high season. Though not essential we would recommend a car to get the most out of the surrounding area.
Other Activities: Kite surfing / jet ski / snorkelling
