Overview

Cartagena - Mar Menor Apartment Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 1 bathroom, ground floor bungalow sleeps 4-6

This 2-bedroom ground floor bungalow is situated on a secure complex with gated access. It has a spacious living area with air con/heating. It is furnished & equipped to a high standard including LCD TV & DVD player along with a selection of DVD’s. It has satellite TV with channels including movies, kids, news, BBC,ITV channel 4 & 5. The Kitchen, which is separate, is fully equipped & leads onto a rear patio area.

There are 2 single beds in each bedroom along with wardrobes & drawers, both rooms benefit from air con/heating & the main bedroom is fitted with a safe. A highchair is available at no extra charge and a cot can be hired. To the front of the property is a large patio area with table & seating for 6. The complex benefits from a 20m pool with separate children’s pool. The bungalow is situated in a quiet area but is less than 5 minutes walk to the shops & restaurants. The beach is a 10-min stroll & the nearest golf course is 2 km. Wi-Fi is available for a small charge of €10 per stay payable locally. Heat/air con is on a meter but is still provided free of charge up to the value of €20 per week. We feel that €20 per week should be more than sufficient but more credit can be purchased.

Los Alcazares: Los Alcazares has been awarded four EC blue flags for its beaches. Most of the narrow streets lead directly to the 7 kilometres of sandy shore. The nearest shops & restaurants are in the newly completed plaza, which is just a 5-minute walk. Los Alcazares has a wonderful feel about it and with its all year round climate it has something for every season. The town's market day is Tuesday when a wide variety of goods are available. Festivals are an all year round occurrence in the area. Los Alcazares festivals are held at Easter, the second week in August & the middle of October. The historic city of Murcia, is only a 30 minutes drive, its has many designer stores and is charming with its squares & narrow streets. The city of Cartagena is full of fascinating sights & only 15 minutes drive away. They are both well worth exploring for their shops, architecture & history.

The Mar Menor: Few regions are lucky enough to have a salt-water lagoon beside the Mediterranean Sea. Along its 73 kilometres coastline perimeter there are numerous beaches with crystal clear, shallow water (with a maximum depth of 7 metres) making it very safe for children. The Mar Menor lagoon covers an area of 170 km2, making it the biggest salt-water lake in Europe. In the coolest months the temperature of the water is about 12°C while in August it reaches 30°C. The Mar Menor is listed by the World Health Organisation as one of the healthiest places on earth. 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. With the many cafes & bars dotted along the beach it's a great way to spend the day & soak up the sun.

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 the following airports: Gatwick, Luton, Stansted, Cardiff, East Midlands, Newcastle, Leeds-Bradford, Manchester, Liverpool, Birmingham, Bristol, Blackpool, Southampton, Prestwick, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Shannon, Dublin, Guernsey & Kent. Most others fly into Alicante which 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. A full airport transfer service can be arranged for you from either Murcia or Alicante please enquire for details.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just thought I'd write and let you know how much we enjoyed our holiday at Albatros. Everything we needed was provided (not always the case on some places we've stayed!). Sue was really helpful and the accommodation was first class. We look forward to staying there again in the future.



Mike and Gladys (May 07)



Just a short note to say how much we enjoyed our holiday in your delightfully comfortable, tasteful and well equipped apartment.

One of the best!

  • 5 of 5

A lovely bungalow on a lovely complex. Very comfortable accommodation with everything provided for a great stay. Sandra was brilliant providing our transfers and making us feel very welcome with the added bonus of a welcome pack. Excellent location close to the Square where there is an abundance of bars and restaurants and only five minutes to the beach and a beautiful promenade. Was our first time here but certainly will not be our last.

Great, Bungalow complex and location

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic clean well equiped accomadation, in a lovely clean quite complex, in a great location. Only a easy 7 min stroll to the main plazza with lots of amazing places to eat, ate out everyday and never had a bad meal. The beach is about a 10 15 walk, again a easy walk, no hills!

Pick up was arranged for us and a friendly lady called Sandra took us to the apartment, showed us around the apartment and comlex and advised us on a few places to visit and to dine. I would highly recomend this property its perfect for a safe and enjoyable holiday.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the great review and for taking the time to share your experience with future guests. As the whole of the area is so flat it makes it very easy to get around and everything from the supermarket and restaurants to the beach are only minutes away. We take pride in making the bungalow nice and welcoming for guests and have tried to make it as much a home from home as possible so that everyone's holiday is a comfortable and enjoyable stay. We look forward to welcoming you back :-)

Brilliant stay

  • 5 of 5

Had a brilliant holiday and the room was fantastic. Very comfortable and clean. Comfy beds as well. The area was very clean and the pool was relaxing whilst catching the rays. The shopping trolley came useful for the market on Saturday which was very cheap. Overall the stay was fantastic and the food was amazing in every resturant we went to. I would highly recommend staying here and will definitely be returning. Sandra was brilliant too, gave use some useful information especially eating in the old hotel which was beautiful. Thanks for letting us stay and making our holiday a great time

Superb!

  • 5 of 5

From start to finish our whole experience was fantastic. The bungalow is in a great location, only a 5/10 minute stroll to the 'new' town of Los Alcazares. There is everything you would need for a great beach holiday including ice packs for the cool bag! Very much appreciated as we had great weather whilst we there. We enjoyed using the bbq as the food in the local supermarkets is very reasonable. The patio area is great for sitting out and there is a lovely lounge/dining area (but we never used it!). It is a perfect size and there is a good size swimming pool on the complex and a children's pool. Sandra greeted us and had left a really welcome 'welcome pack' with everything you need for when you arrive. I cannot recommend this enough. Really lovely and we hope to return one day!

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay. Los Alcazares really is a fantastic place for families and we have tried to make it as much a home from home as possible and as it's so close to everything it makes it easier for children and anyone with walking difficulties. Sandra greets everyone and makes sure you have all the information you need and is on hand if you have any problems. We look forward to welcoming you back :-)
