About Mike & Jean Hare

Ola..and Welcome to our Little Oasis on the Costa Calida coastline overlooking the Mar Menor.

My wife Jean, and I had always wanted a 'Place in the Sun' and 10 years ago an opportunity arose for us to see that wish through.

We immediately were attracted to the area by the convenience of a 2.5 hour flight, the cosiness of landing at a small but very efficient airport at San Javier - and more importantly the apartment, its positioning and the surroundings, it just felt right.

We have tried to make each of our place's a 'home from home' thinking about what would be the perfect place to stay in if we were having a break abroad - and hopefully over the years of us owning them, we would like to think we have done so.

Enjoy the descriptions and pictures - we hope to hear from you soon,

Mike & Jean Hare purchased this apartment in 2004

Why Mike & Jean Hare chose Cartagena - Mar Menor

We bought this 2 years prior to Marinesco 2 on the otherside of the Marina - but all for the same reasons.

There really is not a better feeling than getting up in the morning, sliding open the doors, walking out onto a huge ground floor sun terrace, looking over and just seeing all shapes and sizes of boats and yachts literally passing your lounge window.

It might be a little further to walk over to the marina, than Marinesco 2 which is virtually on the marina, but again what a lovely walk over the 'swing bridge' stopping every now and again to watch the boats pass you by - coming and going from the Med and The Mar Menor.

What makes this apartment unique

The peace & privacy is noticeable and a plus -

escape the sun at times with full Air Con through out the apartment -

A great modern supermarket on your door step -

Huge Sun Terrace, with various outdoor furniture, which is great for al fresco dining & sun bathing -

Wind out canopies - to give cover & some shade, if you want it, when dining on the terrace -

Free Wifi + Satellite TV with UK Channels, Sky and BT Sport if you need to follow your team or favourite Soap -

Free Welcome Pack, No charge for the Pre Clean or extra linen when using the sofabed.

Free Cot, Highchair & Buggy for the little ones & a couple of bike's to make use of the flat area and region surrounding the 'La Manga Strip'

Everything is included in the price - 'no hidden add on's'

The best we've stayed in.

  • 5 of 5

I cannot put into words how nice this apartment is and how easy it was to deal with Mike. Everything is catered for and it was like living in my own home with all mod cons and more.

It was situated in a nice area, and the gardens and pool area were kept immaculately. The cleaner had done a brilliant job when we arrived, and was on hand to help.

I would have booked for next year and many more years ,but it's booked up. 😂Thanks to Mike for giving us our best holiday yet.

Owner's Response: That's fantastic - from myself in the UK and the team in Spain who looked after your needs, Thank you. It is always so nice to hear from our guests as without that feedback we would be in a position to continually review and improve where possible. I am so sorry we were not in a position to welcome you back at the time you wanted to return in 2017, hopefully you visited out other apartment on the marina and w hope to hear from you and others very soon. Mike

spring break

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely relaxing holiday again at your apartment.It was lovely and clean and comfortable.With the added bonus of having wi-fi we could keep in touch with our family. We had lots of nice trips and still love the lovely sunsets every evening.Thanks again Len and Barb.

Owner's Response: Thank you Len & Barb - some very kind words and a great response to kick start summer off with. Once again the team have been able to deliver the highest of standards for our guests to enjoy. Be it any seasonal let, long or short term, this has to be one of the best spots, position and well equipped apartments to enjoy the Spanish sun and fabulous views - overlooking Tomas Mastre Marina and the coming and going of boats of all sizes directly passed the huge sun terrace. The popularity of this apartment is underlined by having so few nights/weeks left throughout 2014, including the early part of 2015 - so to all reading this review, start planning your 2015 break now.

Summer in La Manga

  • 5 of 5

Have just returned from a wonderful two weeks in La Manga. We really loved your appartment which offered us everything that we were looking for. The huge patio and furniture is great for any days when you do not want to venture out. We had a hire car and it was a great base for getting out and about to see some of the small villages around the3 Mar Menor and further down the coast in Mazaron and Aguilas.

Thanks to John who responded quickly when we experienced a problem with the lights in the bathroom.

I agree with the previous comment about WIFI so good to hear that this will soon be available.

Just two other suggestions and they are both minor. It would have been useful to have a change of towels for the 2nd week to save washing them and the kettle could do with replacing as it barely pours the water out.

Overall this was a very good experience so thanks to Mike and Jean for allowing us to rent your appartment.

Owner's Response: Many thanks to Dave T from Mike, Jean, John and all the team in Spain for such a positive review. Once again it is nice to read of our guests are not disappointed by the standards, service and value for money they have experienced. Negotiations are well in hand with the broadband suppliers to ensure we have Wifi in and running before the year end. I would also thank Dave T. for pointing out the need to replace the kettle, which John will do immediately and we will most certainly consider the observation re doubling up the issue of towels for guests staying longer than one week. Once again - a great review and we do look forward to seeing Dave T. his family, or Friends returning once again or making use of us later in the year or in 2014. Mike & Jean July 2014

Great Marina Views - Huge Sun Terrace.

  • 5 of 5

Accurate description of property and well maintained. Good customer service from the on site contact John and would recommend to friends and family for future visits. Great view of the marina a enjoy watching the boats coming in and out . The best restaurants were the Chinese at the start of the strip by the Aldi supermarket , restaurant Miramar on the quayside at Cabo de Palos and the Rock and Grill near the Zoco shopping midway up the strip. Also had a trip round to Los Alcazares for another great beach and total English influx ( restaurants , bars etc) which was nice to visit but better to escape back to the strip. Many thanks to Mike and Jean for allowing us the use of the apartment . Myself the wife and most importantly our 16 month old thoroughly enjoyed our two weeks here. Only thing I could say would improve the stay would be wifi but hardly a negative against the property.

Owner's Response: Really pleased that our guests enjoyed their time and experience at the apartment - it is always gratifying to have a response to their time at Miradores and The La Manga Strip. We fell in love with the area over 10 years ago and our mind was made up to purchase the property and share it with others when walking out and looking at the stunning view of the Marina, with all forms of boats & yachts' etc passing by on their way in and out of the Marina to the Med and the Mar Menor. Great to see that families can make full use of the huge sun terrace of this ground floor apartment and have peace of mind children of all ages will be completely safe there. Finally noting the wifi request - we are pleased to say that the apartment will be "complete" by the end of this year (2013) when it is our intention to put wifi in for our guests' use.

Relaxing Holiday in a Great Location

  • 4 of 5

What a great place to spent two relaxing weeks, the apartment was spotless and had all the labour saving equipment. The view from the sun terrace is just stunning we could sit their all day wayching all the boats coming and going,in fact some times we did. The walk to and from the marina was not to bad, we ate their a few times Spanish, Mexican and really enjoyed the Asian meal the best. The trip on the ferry was good so we did it twice, we also found it easy to use the bus to Cabo de Palos and to Cartegena.This is a lovely place to holiday , the beaches are lovely and the views are just stunning. The place is a credit to you Mike and Jean also your team in La Mango who take care of everything.

Owner's Response: On behalf of myself, Jean and the team who work so hard on our behalf in La Manga, many thanks for taking the time to put your views and thoughts of your holiday break in writing to Holiday-Rentals. We are always pleased to receive feedback and even more so when you have had such a good break and have enjoyed your time at the apartment. It really is the ideal spot for that relaxing break, unwinding on the huge sun terrace, watching the world and the yatchs go by... We really look forward to all our past, present and future guests returning once again later in the year or in 2013.

Car: recommended

This development is found 18km up the La Manga Strip, which has views of two seas and sandy white beaches either side of road along your journey. The Mediterranean on one side and the Mar Menor (The Little Sea) on the other. The shallow waters of the Mar Menor and the absence of tides makes this the ideal place for a large variety of water sports. Add this to the waters of the Mar Menor being recognised as some of the most therapeutic in Europe and with the sun shining up to an average of 322 days per year, it's the perfect choice Along the full 22 km strip there are pockets of Shopping centres, restaurant, bars & activities, with the picturesque Tomas Mastreo Marina acting as your backdrop to the apartment views. Alongside the apartment are two landscaped communal pools for residents usage, and a superb supermarket facility. Beaches are literally a 5 min walk on either side of the apartment. A great family plus for summer and wonderful walks in the Spanish Winter and Spring, so take advantage of the 'flatness' of the surrounding area with the apartments latest addition of new push bikes for free all included in the package price.

Other Activities: Great local markets, daily - go karting - bird sanctuary, suba diving

Golf: With in 30 minutes you can be playing one of the 3 famous courses at The exclusive La Manga Club with an array of famous Who's Who of the sporting world, and the first choice of many continental football teams Winter training and pre-season training camps.

Further a field there are some great Polaris World/Jack Nicolas Golf courses at Mar Menor, Hacienda Requelmie and La Torre - all with very reasonably priced Green fees.
