About heather donaldson
Hi my passion for Spain started about 8 years ago and has never changed. I wanted to have a home in the sun where I could look forward to warm winters. Roda has everything I need to feel secure and welcomed. The whole area is just fantastic and every time I visit I find another little gem! I have been lucky enough to travel to many countries and lived in the Middle and Far East but Spain has something very different.I would love my clients to get a taste of the real Spain and will inspire you to explore and enjoy the huge variety of experiences on offer.
heather donaldson purchased this Apartment in 2006
Why heather donaldson chose San Javier
The apartment is in an excellent location on Phase One of Roda Golf and Beach Resort. The advantages of apartment Arco Iris are that the apartment is is a fantastic location with lovely garden and pool views. perfect for a short holiday or a longer winter rental. Also, you are only a short stroll away from the club house and all the resort facilities as well as to walk up to Roda bar or Campbell's restaurant. Your safety is a priority and gas and smoke detectors are fitted.
What makes this Apartment unique
Just fabulous location whether you want to just chill out or go off and explore. Los Alcazare is an old fishing and salt water spa town is located in a prime position making travel to other areas really easy such as Murcia, Cartegana, with its roman ruins or nature reserves at Guadamar and Sierra Espuna. When it comes to dining out you will be spoilt for choice. Choose from simple tapas, traditional Spanish food, seafood, steaks, Chinese, Mexican or Italian, something to suit all tastes.Many lovely fiestas are held here - not to be missed are Easter when there is a huge traditional market where traders come from all over Spain; in July The San Javier Music Festival runs the whole month and features leading Jazz & Blues artists and some rock, pop & folk acts. The Festividad de la Virgin del Carmen on the 16th includes street processions, fireworks and the symbolic burning of an artificial castle as well as a procession of boats which scatter flowers on the sea; and the August International Festival of Theatre, Music & Dance in San Javier and A Flamenco Festival in La Union. There is an excellent tourist office where you will find details of all the activities on offer including local spa centre which is fabulous, gym, bike hire as well as other towns and cities.Why not hire a bike a cycle? With 7 kms of flat beach side promenading with lots of bars and cafes along the way it’s a great way to tour the coast of the Mar Menor. Need to do some serious shopping? Then head for Dos Mares at San Javier or Cartagena and Murcia where you will find large stores and designer label outlets.Board the Mar Menor ferry at the pier in the centre of town during the summer months and take a lovely boat trip to other towns or the islands of the Mar Menor. literally it is endless!!
Strictly non smoking. Appreciate keeping the property in good condition and request that breakages damages are reported to the local agent. Respectfully request that clients do not sit on the leather couches when wearing on swimwear as the chlorine stains the leather.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Lovely Apartment Excellent Value
We have been to Roda Golf Resort about 7 times we love it. Always try and stay in Heathers ground floor apartment which is on the first phase of development. I would recommend staying here as it is close to golf course club house and a short walk to the beach and town. The apartment has all one comforts inside and out spacious and clean. Use of the communal pool which is just outside your patio. Owner Heather is very helpful. She also has an agent on site should you need them. I would definitely recommend this apartment.
Lovely 2 bed apartment near resort entrance
We stayed in this 2 bed apartment for 4 weeks in Oct/Nov this year. It is very convenient situated near the entrance, with good (if a little tight) underground parking. The property manager met us and showed us round. The apartment was clean and tidy, with ample kitchen utensils for living comfortably. There was no dishwasher, but that was a minor issue. The terrace opens on to the swimming pool area (quite cool in November!) and gets the sun in the afternoon. We found it very convenient (you can walk the 1.5 miles to town) and comfortable. The TV has a number of British channels, (but not Sky). The wifi worked well, although we did have a day when it needed to be re-started. The Property Manager resolved this as you cannot do it yourself. Communication with the owner was excellent, and we would be happy to recommend it. We will be going back as the area is lovely.
Thank you Gary for your review. So glad that you enjoyed your stay and found your way round. It was a pleasure to have you as guests and thank you for taking good care of my apartment and I look forward to welcoming you back another time.
