Isla Plana Villa Rental Photos and Description

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. A very large private pool with built in jacuzzi and water feature. Outside terraces designed for summer living and eating, fully automated exterior lighting with extra coloured floodlighting helping to crea 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.

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.

About chris wallace

retired musician. now living in this villa since 2006. probably the best place we have ever had the privilege to live.

chris wallace purchased this villa in 2006

Why chris wallace chose Cartagena - Mar Menor

this is not just another holiday villa but our beautiful home for seven months of the year. this offers our guests a home from home feeling, but offering the warmth and outstanding views of the beautiful bay of mazarron. if it's peace and tranquillity with privacy our villa offers the perfect choice.

What makes this villa unique

close to beach and stunning sea and mountain views with privacy.

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.

Wonderful villa with panoramic sea views

  • 5 of 5

We have thoroughly enjoyed our 2 weeks at Casa Brisamar. The location is perfect, within easy reach of the beaches and restaurants but elevated to give you wonderful panoramic sea and mountain views.

The pool is of a good size and is well maintained by Chris, the very helpful and friendly owner.

The villa is very spacious and comfortable and is well equipped - a real home from home. The outdoor areas are lovely and there are plenty of comfortable seating, lounging and eating areas on all sides of the property.

Isla Plana itself is well located between Cartagena and Puerto de Mazarron. It has a small supermarket and some good restaurants and is very good value. There are lovely beaches along the coast; our favourite was La Azohia. However the property is so well equipped and the pool so inviting that you may end up being lazy like us and just enjoy living in the property.

Thank you Chris and Josephine for a lovely holiday in your home. We may well be back!

Peaceful haven

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I stayed at Casa Brisamar in May this year. We received a warm welcome on arrival and a detailed tour of the fabulous property. With sea views from most windows this place has an amazing location. Perched up on a small hill side looking out to sea you are gifted with sun from the early morning until late evening as you move around the villa during the day.

This is a great villa with large living areas both inside and out including a good sized pool for cooling of during the day. The views from the main lounge window can help you dream hours away whilst looking at to sea. The villa is very well equipped and much more so than the average villa due to this being a home for most of the year. Little touches like Sharpe knives, washing and dish washer tablets and skewers for the BBQ all help to make it a relaxing place where you don't need to worry about the littles things.

It's a short 10 minute walk into town where you will find a pharmacy, small supermarket, 3 restaurants and two bars. The locals are very welcoming but please do try small amounts of Spanish. They'll help you.

Mazarron is only a 15 minute drive and Cartagena is 35 minutes both have great marinas and lots of restaurants. There are a number of supermarkets within a 10/15 drive of the property. La Azohia is a 10 minute drive around the bay and has some great restaurants and nice beach.

We had a great two weeks relaxing in this villa. If you are looking for a great location, a peaceful break this place is highly recommended.

Fabulous villa with superb views

  • 5 of 5

We've just returned from such a wonderful holiday at Brisamar that we have already booked up for next year again. A fabulous villa with stunning views of the sea and mountains - such a joy to wake up to every morning. The villa was the best we have stayed in - the private location was great with no one over-looking the pool or dining area. It was spotlessly clean and tidy, well maintained and very spacious. The pool was perfect & regularly checked and kept clean.

Chris was superb - so welcoming and helpful - he was on hand at all times. A great host and source of local information from welcome pack that he greeted us with at the villa, the directions he gave us to the villa and doctors when we needed them and things to the recommendations he gave us to see and do locally - we really appreciated his input. The sea was beautiful - warm and clear and there was a good choice of beaches locally and further afield. the villa was also very conveniently located for local food shop and a couple of restaurants within walking distance and short drive to the supermarkets and other places to eat at the port.

Thank you so much Chris and Joesphine for sharing this little gem of a place and enabling us to have the one of our best family holidays ever - we are so looking forward to our return next year.
