About the property

Stunning detached villa with outstanding sea and mountain views and private pool

One of the most beautiful detached villas in the village of Isla Plana. Affording stunning sea and mountain views across the bay of La Azohia. FREE Wi-Fi throughout the villa. A very large private pool with built in jacuzzi and water feature. Outside terraces designed for summer living and eating, fully automatic exterior lighting with extra coloured floodlighting helping to create a magical experience. Huge open plan lounge with cream leather suite and a dining area seating 8 persons. Flat screen 47' HD TV with blue ray DVD player and English satellite TV and Spanish TV and hi fi cd player. Fully equipped kitchen with everything you would need and more ! the kitchen leads directly onto the large outside terrace with gas BBQ and gas griddle and dining table seating six people, with stunning views across the bay.

we have 2 double bedrooms with sea views on the ground floor and one twin bedroom on the first floor with an en-suite and its own secluded terrace with amazing views across the sea and to the mountains. All bedroom have ceiling fans and air conditioning. 2 bathrooms both with showers and one with a bath as well. The saloon has ceiling fans and free standing fan, Ample secure parking for up to 4 cars.

Basically the villa is equipped to the highest standard throughout with everything you would expect from a villa of this quality to help make your holiday as comfortable as possible and a memorable experience.


a little bit extra for piece of mind.

historic city of Cartagena: just 25 minutes drive and you are in Cartagena, this city has had a fortune spent on it and is well worth visiting. If you are into history Cartagena is overflowing with culture and its Roman past. The dock front is now a trendy and facinating place to visit. Cartagena is now one of the major destinations for world cruise ships. They are very close to the frontage and make a fantastic view, even the new Queen Elizabeth is a regular visitor.

There is a very interesting boat trip that takes you around the navy docks and visits the oil refinery with all the large ships coming in and out.

For the ladies the clothes shops are stunning !! sorry to mention that chaps.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Review submitted by Yvonne from Cugy (Submitted: 7 Sep 2012)

We had a lovely, relaxing, two week stay here. The owners, Chris and Josephine, were there to greet us and were available throughout our stay to answer questions such as recommending restaurants etc. The villa itself was spotlessly clean and very well equipped. The swimming pool is a very good size for a villa.The sea views from the terraces are magnificent. We managed to spot two Hoopoes during our stay. Isla Plana itself is small but does have restaurants. The Port of Mazarron, which is lively but family oriented, is nearby and the city of Cartagena within easy visiting distance.

great house, beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

Thanks Chris & Josephine, great house, beautiful location and a warm welcome. We stayed two weeks in Isla Plana and enjoyed your very tidy and well maintained villa. We’d certainly recommend your villa to our friends!

Rest & Relaxation

  • 4 of 5

The warm welcome from Chris and Josephine was refreshing - as were the cold drinks and other supplies waiting for us. The time they took to explain the various aspects of the house was much appreciated and made settling in easy.

We found the house well-presented, well-equipped and everything felt particularly clean. The terraces and lovely pool area all had fabulous views towards the sea or mountains.

We really enjoyed our stay in Isla Plana and would not hesitate in recommending it as a perfect place for a quiet, relaxing break.

Fantastic views. Nice private pool area

  • 1 of 5

The best things about the villa are the views and the privacy around the pool. The decor and appliances are dated and tired and desperately need updating. We wouldn't use the bed cover as it's the sort that couldn't be washed so we wondered if it was Dri cleaned after every visit. The villa smells of smoke which we didn't like. The ceramic floor tiles in most rooms are chipped /damaged which gives the overall appearance of being grubby. It's a mid -high priced villa that only delivers low-mid quality.

Owner's Response: many thanks for your review it is greatly appreciated. strange that you gave us only one star review and all previous 25 reviews are five star. for people reading this I would like to point out that all the appliances are top of the range and no more than two years old. look at the pictures. every winter the villa is decorated inside and out to a high standard. regarding the smell of smoke I find this strange as nobody smokes in the house. as you were the first guests after the winter I can only assume you confused the aroma of the log fire, which is used on a daily basis, very normal for a Spanish property. all bed linen is cleaned and fresh for every arriving guest. yes there are hairline fractures in the ceramic tiles which again is quite normal in Spain especially when we live in an earthquake zone. mild tremors are Normal. very sorry Angela that our beautiful villa did not meet your own personal standards however 99% of our clients disagree and return every year.

Glorious Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We spent two glorious weeks in Isla Plana, Spain. We loved the villa, in particular the stunning sea views from the terraces, kitchen and living room. The house was very clean, well maintained and nicely decorated. The villa was extremely comfortable and it was great to have fast wifi and all of the UK channels on TV.

Chris and Josephine were informative hosts and were very attentive to all our needs. A car is necessary and the area is quiet and peaceful.

We enjoyed our stay and look forward to returning in the future.

A very tidy and well maintained villa with lovely panoramic views from almost every aspect.

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we met Chris Wallace in the village car park (we were lost!) he was very welcoming and eager to make us all feel at home in his lovey villa, as was his wife when we met her when we arrived. We felt that they would be close at hand anytime we needed to speak to them which was very reasurring. The villa itself is in a lovely elevated position, taking full advantage of the surrounding vistas.

My family and I were in need of a relaxing break and this turned out to be ideal, although the village of Isla Plana was a little quieter than we anticipated but I expect this was due to the time of the season (late September).

We had a really lovely, relaxing holiday and wish that we had booked for a second week.

Thank you. We enjoyed your home very much.
