About Helen Barrett

We live in Stirling in central Scotland. We have 5 children and 4 grandchildren. Graham is a retired Head Teacher and Helen is a retired Health Visitor. Graham speaks fluent Spanish and French.

Why Helen Barrett chose Mojacar area

We travelled extensively along the Southern and Eastern coasts of Spain looking for our ideal location. As we drove beside the long sandy beach of Mojacar we knew this was somewhere we wanted to return to. Having looked at lots of properties during two more visits, we saw Cueva del Lobo on the internet at home. We looked on Google Earth and wondered if it would be as good in reality. It exceeded our expectations. We put in an offer on the next morning. We have enjoyed refurnishing our home. For us the reality has matched the dream. We have found our place to make memories and hope you will make some too. As they say in Spain, "our home is your home" - "nuestra casa es su casa".

* Registration Number is currently on process as it is on pending.

What makes this apartment unique

We enjoy the apartment with its good sized rooms and 2 bathrooms. We have found being right next to the pool a big bonus. We like the complex which is small, friendly and well cared for. The climate is, of course, unbelievable for us Scots. The location is perfect - beautiful, clean, sandy beach, a wide variety of very good quality restaurants and, of course, the lovely promenade, ideal for strolling by day or in the cool of the evening. What more could you ask.

Mojacar Playa

Coast/Beach:

This coast is the driest and warmest in Spain and mainland Europe enjoying warm sunny weather through most of the year.

The start of the beach is 150 metres away. It is sandy and has good amenities. One of the delights of this part of the beach is the promenade alongside, which is separated form the road and used by visitors and residents alike for a stroll particularly in the late afternoon. There is a small play area for the children at the start of the promenade.

Travel:

The nearest airport is Almeria which is approximately 90 kms. Allicante airport is 225km, 2 hours 10 mins. Murcia, St. Javier, airport is 160 km, 1 hour 40 mins. There is a toll motorway from Murcia which is not used by the locals so it can feel like your own private motorway.

Car hire is the most convenient, however there is regular bus service from Almaria airport that meets all UK planes. A quote for a taxi pick up can be arranged.

Distances:

The resort of Mojacar Playa stretches along the seafront. It has a good selection of supermarkets, banks, chemists, curio and hardware shops.

Mojacar Pueblo the hilltop town of white washed houses with its restaurants, cafes and craft shops - 2 km.

The Spanish town of Vera is about 15 km away. It has a typically Spanish town square a large market on a Saturday and excellent tapas.

Garrucha is a fishing village with celebrated fish restaurants -5kms

Further Details:

There is plenty to occupy all the family when you stay at Cueva del Lobo. There is a small play park a couple of minutes walk away for the little ones. There is mini golf in season. Near Vera there is a water park. For older children there is a go kart track about 7 km away. In high season there are water sports to be enjoyed.

For the older family members there are top night clubs about 2 km along the coast in Mojacar Playa.

There are a selection of golf courses for the sport enthusiasts and a market in a different village each day of the week for the addicted to shopping. Our favourite is Villaricos, but let us know yours.

A highlight for all the family could be Friday night at the well known Steak House, when they have an authentic flamenco night. Make sure you book as it is always busy. This family friendly holiday will be a place to make memories.

We had a fabulous time. The apartment was very central to everything but also lovely and quiet.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful property and lovely and quiet yet close to the beach, bars and restaurants. The pool was fantastic and we practically had it to ourselves. Definitely recommend.

Lovely apartment

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed our holiday at the apartment. It had everything we could want for our stay and more. It is very well equipped.

We especially liked the position of the apartment, right next to the pool, just walk out the door and you are poolside. Helen provided sun loungers should you need them that were kept on the terrace so no need to rush out early to try and get one as sometimes happens in big complexes. We mainly used the pool to cool off when came back after being out for the day and usually had it to ourselves. It's only for the use of a few apartments.

The apartment is ideally situated not far from the beach and the many restaurants and bars. Also the local bus service is just down the road for Mojacar Pueblo though watch if you go on a Sunday which we did. There is a bigger gap in the service in the afternoon, I think just on Sundays but check timetable. We ended up walking down, which seemed like a good idea at the time but was really a mistake in the heat!

We also found Marisa and her colleague at Price Brown very helpful with any questions we had and Helen during the booking process. We would hope to return in the future.

(There are quite a few steps up to the apartment for taking suitcases up but we are in our 60's and managed!)

Owner's Response: Thanks for this comprehensive review. The information about Sunday buses is helpful. It is possible to stay in the apartment without a car as a bus meets all the UK flights to Almeria and once you arrive everything you need can be easily reached by walking or getting the bus,

Lovely homely apt

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in this apt recently. It is well laid out and the air conditioning throughout was a huge bonus as the weather was very hot during our stay.

Their is plenty of room for a family of 4.

It is ideally located close to restaurants and the beach.

The pool is right outside and for a lot our stay our 2 kids were the only ones in the pool.

Would hope to make a return visit at some stage.

Only small downside was it was hard to get information from Price Brown. I appreciate it is a busy time but would prefer a quicker response from them.

The owners however, were very quick to respond to any questions we had both before our visit and during our visit.

A fantastic property, perfectly located for the beach, lots of lovely restaurants, beach bars

  • 5 of 5

Excellent location and well maintained apartment with homely touches, resident neighbours very friendly and helpful. Information and welcome note left by owners added to the personal touches. Some days the shared pool was not used by other apartments and felt like your own private pool. Food great and reasonably priced in all local restaurants. Plenty to do for the children, bus stop across the road to Mojacar pueblo allowed easy access to the entertainment in the square in the evenings throughout July. Will definitely return if Helen and Graham will have us! Many thanks for a wonderful holiday.

Owner's Response: We have found the pool is an ideal size for children to play in the warm water and sparkling sunshine. We would also recommend the Oasys Hollywood for an excellent day our for children and adults if you have a car.

Lovely!

  • 5 of 5

Apartment was lovely and location was perfect. A hired car allows for exploring the surrounding area but likewise it wasn't a necessity because you were situated extremely well for walks along the promenade, time on the beach or lazing by the outdoor pool. There were more than enough bars and restaurants - and shops, locally, to choose from. Admin worked very well and we were kept up to date and informed right up until the time of our departure. Thanks for allowing us to enjoy your home - we had a great week.

Wonderfully idyllic and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a week in Easter, and is was everything we could hope for and more.

Ideal for couples if you want that we per bit still be close to everything mojacar has to offer.

All we could hear was the birds, no other noise whatsoever.

Apartment is very well equipped as described and slot of homely touches too. Pool right next to appt.

Agent who manages the property very professional and just round the corner.

We shall be back if Helen will have us 😁
