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.

AS FROM JUNE 2017 THE VILLA IS NOW LEGALLY REGISTERED WITH THE SPANISH TOURIST BOARD SCORING 100% OF THE CRITERIA REQUIRED.

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.

PLEASE NOTE CHECK IN TIME NOT LATER THAN 20.00 PM AND NOT BEFORE 16.00 PM

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.

Comfortable villa with fantastic outdoor spaces

  • 5 of 5

Our holiday was made so enjoyable not just because of the superb weather which lasted throughout our stay in early September but also because of the comfort afforded to us by this villa. Well equipped and nicely set out we particularly enjoyed the outdoor spaces including the pool and the wonderful views of the Med. Highly recommended we also were made to feel so welcome by the owners who were always willing to assist in whatever way was needed. If you want a relaxing holiday then look no further.

Wonderful views, very spacious and homely

  • 5 of 5

We spent a very lovely 3 weeks here. The villa has everything you need, Chris and Josephine have thought of all the fine details that make for a very relaxing stay. The kitchen had more equipment than we have at home, things such as sharp knives, clingfilm, picnic boxes, a steamer, you name it, it is there! Little things like loo roll, insect repellent, cold drinks in the fridge, washing up liquid, washing powder, bed side clocks and shower gel were all available. The rooms are large and airy and the blinds make it cool and secure at night. Everything was spotlessly clean and the beds were very comfortable. The house is within walking distance from the lovely local beaches and restaurants. La Azohia is a very short drive and the beaches here are particularly beautiful and calm for swimming. We really enjoyed the pool area and the ease of which you can access the house from the pool, great with children especially because it can be closed off so they cannot use it unsupervised. The neighborhood is quiet and we spent most evenings on the kitchen terrace using the gas BBQ enjoying the peace. The views from everywhere in the house really are special, especially the sunsets from the pool terrace steps. We very much hope to visit again And would not hesitate to recommend ⭐️⭐️

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.
