|Minimum Stay||2 - 7 nights|
Welcome to our luxury two bed villa. Built in 2005, it is in a quiet tree lined street in the lovely Mar Menor Golf Resort. NEW for 2016 ; luxury walk in shower stall AND new air conditioning.
The back garden is completely enclosed by a metre high hedge with a side gate, so is safe for children, with a fully tiled patio surrounding a pretty pool and a stone built barbecue for outdoor cooking. There are Sunbeds and chairs adjacent to the pool for relaxing in.
The Palm trees beyond the rear boundary hedge, give the villa a very continental vibe and the fact that you are not over looked at the rear of the villa gives you a real feeling of space. You will not want to leave the back garden as you cool off in the hot summer months in your own lovely private pool. For families with young children there is a safety fence that can be erected around the pool and there are wide steps leading down into the shallow end.
The property has a south westerly rear aspect, backing onto one of the fairways of the 5* Mar Menor golf resort, with superb wide reaching views over the golf course.
Because of its aspect the property has sunny rear terraces for the majority of the day all year round, which are perfect for relaxing and the palm trees at the rear of the garden provide some welcome shade in the hot summer months and cast dancing shadows across the pool lights at night.
The villa is two storey, with an airy, open plan living/kitchen/dining area downstairs, a cloakroom and front and rear covered terraces. The lounge/ dining area has two sofas, one which is a bed settee and there is a table that extends to seat six. Both front and rear covered terraces have a table and chairs.
Upstairs you will fnd two nice size bedrooms (one king and one twin) and a bathroom with luxury walk in shower, plus a further outside terrace, with additional seating, perfect for watching the sun go down over the golf course.
We have furnished our villa to a high standard with all home comforts that we believe make for a great holiday. You will find a very well equipped kitchen which includes a large fridge freezer, washing machine, tumble dryer and full size oven and hob, There is also a microwave oven, toaster, an espresso machine and ample crockery and cookware.
On the rear downstairs terrace there is a table and 4 chairs for al fresco dining. Adjacent to the pool is a brick built barbecue.
For entertainment in the villa there are two digital Televisions, one in the lounge and the other in the master bedroom ( so hopefully no arguemeets over who watches what!!). The cable television has numerous British, Spanish, French and German channels, the British Channels also include many Sky TV channels and SKY Sports. Additionally the villa has 2 DVD players (Lounge and main bedroom).
A selection of DVDs are available for guest use, plus a variety of board games and books for all ages. The villa also has Wi-fi Internet connection.
The property is ideal the year round, for both seasoned golfers, couples or families.
The position of the villa on the resort means that less than five minutes walk on the flat from the property, takes you to the resort centre. Here you will find The Town Centre and the 5* Intercontinental Hotel, with bars, restaurants, a supermarket and communal pool (seasonal opening). The Resort also has paddle and tennis courts .
The facilities offered by the 5* Intercontinental Hotel include fine dining, a number of bars and a luxury Spa.
There is also a variety of bars and restaurants plus a cash point on The Boulevard, just outside the resort and within an easy walk of 15-20 minutes, again all on the flat, from the villa.
You can relax and sip wine by the villa pool, enjoy a round of golf, throw some freshly caught fish on the barbecue or eat out at a local Restaurant and when you want to venture further afield, take a drive and discover the many lovely villages and beaches nearby.
Just a 5 minutes drive in the car and you are on the beautiful sea front of the Mar Menor Sea with its many cafes and bars along a wide pedestrian walkway. Perfect for adults and children, you can walk along the sea front promenade, have a coffee at a beach bar and go swimming in the sea, which as it is so shallow is warmer than the Mediterranean Sea.
This area of Spain is beautiful and will make you want to visit time and time again.
We are a busy professional couple. When we purchased the villa we had two children in their mid teens and wanted a place that would suit us but also be enjoyable and safe for them, their friends and extended family.
Our wish was to have a family home in the sun where we could go to unwind at any time of year, in an area that was enjoyable, interesting and safe for the children.
Besides the benefit of having your own private pool in the garden, we found that the Town Centre pool was great for teenagers as they could make and meet friends in a safe environment.
We also wanted to be fairly near to the sea and other attractions as happy children make for a great holiday!! The villa fitted the bill!
We ourselves visit the villa every few months and continue to enjoy finding new places to visit in the surrounding areas. Morning walks by the sea front followed by breakfast at a beach bar definitely help you unwind.
Although our children have now grown up and left home, they still love coming To the villa, catching up with old friends and meeting and making new ones or just chilling out by the pool. Prior to buying the villa we had, over the years, taken many self catering holidays, Staying in a variety of villas with our children (some too basic to even describe!) and as a result we knew exactly what things we would like to be made available in a holiday villa. We wanted to make ours feel like a real home from home for all guests to enjoy.
We looked at many areas and properties before deciding to purchase the villa in this area of Spain because of the warm sunny climate throughout the year and the fact that it is the driest region in Spain. The golf was an added attraction and of course the great location (near so many lovely beaches, restaurants and bars). The unspoilt nature of the area really struck a chord with us and we felt that the nearby coastal town of Los Alcazares was, and still is, lovely, with its long sandy beach and promenade. Sitting on the sea front having an early morning coffee whilst taking in the view is so relaxing and made us decide this was the area for us. Since then we have found that are also many interesting places to explore within an hours drive, that is when we can drag ourselves away from sitting by our lovely pool!
Being on a resort was a plus with the security and amenities on the doorstep if some days we did not wish to drive. There are bars and restaurants within easy walking distance of the villa and the Resort itself is very attractive with its plazas, fountains and beautiful gardens. The Mar Menor Golf Resort met all our requirements. Having a 5 star Hotel with all its amenities a few minutes walk from the villa is wonderful, especially if you want to pamper yourself in the spa. We all absolutely love our villa, it has the best views across the golf course and any time of year there is nothing better than sitting on the rear terrace, by the pool, watching the sun go down with a chilled glass of Spanish wine!
The resort is less than 15 minutes drive from Murcia airport and as flights go frequently to Murcia from various UK and European airports, not only is it well situated for a summer holiday, you can also enjoy a long weekend in the sun, especially in the autumn/ winter months, when a few warm sunny days can really boost your spirit! Temperatures rarely get very cold, even in Winter it is often warm enough to wear shorts! There are not many two bedroom properties of the same design as ours which are front line golf; even less are in a quiet street, with a pool and a sunny rear aspect all year round, meaning you can relax in the back garden, not be overlooked by an adjacent property backing on to the pool area and be certain that if the sun comes out to play you will be able to enjoy it!
As the resort has grown some properties are over 30 mins walk from the resort centre, but our property is very close to the resort centre but yet at the same time is in a peaceful street. We think it is just perfect.
Wanted to say thanks again for letting us stay in your villa as we really had a lovely time.
We had a lovely stay in this villa.
Two kids under 7, and two adults, and not a wasted day.
The villa suited us to a tee, the girls were in the pool most of the time, and us grown ups on the sun loungers soaking up the sun from morning till sundown.
Great location to explore the area too.
All in all, a great break in a lovely villa.
The villa was lovely, with everything we needed. The pool and outside space was fabulous, and my children particularly enjoyed the pool toys provided. The whole complex is great, with a well stocked shop and lots of places to eat out.
A very well equipped villa with lots of extras to make this is real home in the sunshine as opposed to standard holiday villa. Very well done to Lesley for making this villa a very nice place to stay.
The villa was lovely and the perfect place to stay for a wonderful family holiday. It was clean and very well equipped with everything we needed and it really felt like a home away from home. The view over the golf course was spectacular and the pool area was and private and secure, ideal for our young children.
The resort centre is only a ten minute stroll from the property which was great.
Any queries we had during our stay were answered by Brenda immediately, she was extremely helpful and made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived.
I highly recommend this property, a well deserved five star rating from us. We will certainly be returning in the future.
I had 2 fantastic weeks at this Villa, helped by glorious sunshine! The Villa was clean, bright and airy. It had everything you needed for your holiday. The owners have thought of everything. It was like having a home...away.
A big thank you to Lesley and Nigel for providing such a lovely comfortable villa.
The villa itself is extremely well equipped. The kitchen has everything you need, although we hardly used it, preferring to eat out in the many bars and restaurants on the resort or in town (a 10 minute taxi ride away). However, having the luxury of a dishwasher and washing machine made our holiday that little less stressful. The open plan living area is spacious and the air-con is an added bonus to cool down the warm summer evenings. Upstairs it has two bedrooms (one double, one twin), both with plenty of storage for all of our holiday clothes.
However, for us, the biggest selling point was the outside space. In the garden we had access to a private BBQ and pool (along with ample sunbathing space and sun loungers). The dining area was modern and comfy, and as we backed on the golf course we had plenty of privacy. The position of the villa meant we had uninterrupted sun all day long. In the mornings, we would sip our coffee on the terrace in front of the house. The majority of the day was then spent in the back garden and by the evening we headed to the generous top sundeck which is the perfect sun trap with added privacy. The perfect way to watch the sunset (with a cold glass of sangria).
The villa was ideally located, just a five minute walk on the flat to the Intercontinental Hotel where there is a spa, shops, restaurant and bars. A further 10 minute walk took you to the promenade, where more bars and restaurants could be found. The resort was beautiful to stroll around as everything was pristine and peaceful.
Myself and my partner visited for a relaxing week away but will certainly be returning here with friends next year! You will not be disappointed staying at the Mar Menor golf resort and especially staying at this villa.
I could not recommend this villa enough!
