About the property

Villa on Mar Menor Golf Resort, Costa Calida / Murcia, Spain - Our lovely villa stands in a quiet tree lined street, yet minutes from resort centre.

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 2018 our pool can now be heated.

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 which for families with young children can be enclosed by a safety fence . 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.

About Lesley

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.

Why Lesley chose Torre-Pacheco

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!

What makes this villa unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a fantastic holiday in your lovely villa. We've been doing villa holidays for a number of years now and can honestly say we have never stayed anywhere quite so well equipped, you really have thought of everything!

Everything and more!

  • 5 of 5

My family had an amazing holiday in this villa which is truly a home from home. We have been doing villa holidays for many years and I can honestly say that this is the best equipped villa we have ever stayed in - the owners really have thought of everything. The villa is clean and well maintained and the manager on site is on hand whenever you need help with anything at all. The outside space is perfect for a family (we had two boys who loved playing with all of the pool inflatables and balls that were provided). There is access to the sunshine from morning 'til night - early morning coffee out front, daytime at the pool and then catching the last rays of the day on the upstairs terrace taking in the beautiful views over the golf course. The resort facilities are plentiful with lots of dining options. Unfortunately, we found that standards seemed to drop in our second week when the resort became busier which was a little disappointing. There is also the option of going to the boulevard just outside the resort gates, a 10-15 inure stroll, where you will find a number of family restaurants and bars, some with pool tables (another important element of a holiday for our boys!) A €15 taxi ride into Los Alcazares Mercadona area takes you to a square/street with many restaurants and bars to choose from in close proximity. So, lots of options for eating out or cocktails! Although a car would not strictly be necessary, I would recommend hiring one as there is so much to see and do in the area and the owners have provided a really useful folder of recommendations and suggestions. Definitely a 5 star property that I would not hesitate to recommend. Thank you Lesley, Nigel and Brenda.

Fabulous, homely and relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week with our two children (9 & 6). The villa was so homely, clean and well maintained and a lot of thought had been put in to make it family friendly. We spent most of the week in the pool and so the toys and inflatables were great and very well used. The outlook was great and very relaxing. Having the pool fence was extremely reassuring and a bonus. We also made use of the beach chairs and accessories , all provided! The air conditioned bedrooms made sleeping v comfortable and happy cool kids.

None of us wanted to leave and that was predominately down to the quality of the villa. We will definitely return and would recommend without hesitation.

Thank you!

Lovely, Just Lovely

  • 5 of 5

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.

We loved this villa!

  • 5 of 5

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.
