Overview

Islas Menores Bungalow Rental Photos and Description

2 bedroom bungalow with stunning landscaped gardens and fabulous pool

Beautiful 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom bungalow, furnished to a very high standard.

This beautiful villa is set within a small and very exclusive resort known as Club Calida Beach.

Surrounded by fabulous private gardens and large swimming pool, the perfect place to relax and unwind.

Only a few minutes walk away you will find the local shops, supermarket, bars and restaurants and within 10 minutes walk you come to the amazing blue flag beaches of the Mar Menor Sea

This area is perfect for couples and families, especially with young children. The beaches are well equipped with a number of bars and restaurants serving typical Spanish fair such as Tapas and very fresh grilled fish and sea food – Don’t forget to try the Paella.

The waters of the Mar Menor are always warm due to its shallow depth and also being protected by La Manga del Mar, the unique strip of land separating the Mediterranean Sea from the lagoon.

The Mar Menor Sea hosts beautiful soft sand beaches and a lovely flat promenade that runs for many kilometres. As you stroll or cycle along the promenade you will encounter many beach side bars and restaurants serving some amazing fresh foods, the area is especially renowned for its fresh seafood.

The Mar Menor Sea is a vast lagoon measuring 27 km long, 9 km wide but only 7 metres deep at its centre, this makes it ideal for families and water sports enthusiasts alike, the waters are always warmer than the Mediterranean sea which is separated from the Mar Menor by the spit of land known as La Manga del Mar.

If you prefer the crashing waves of the Mediterranean sea then you only need to travel 5 minutes by car to Cabo de Palos which is a lovely working fishing harbour, also within 10 minutes is the stunning Calblanque nation park with is rugged coastline. Totally unspoilt and peaceful with many species of wildlife

cockroach motel

  • 2 of 5

Very pretty complex, pool and surrounding area really lovely our first impression of the bungalow really nice. Then we discovered dirty ripped outdoor furniture which we had to clean before use, the roof terrace was unusable the table and seats were extremely dirty to the point if you sat on the seats it would ruin your clothes. BUT the worse was the discovery of a infestation of cockroaches in the bungalow , coming from the bathroom running across walls, everywhere we contacted the maintenance who called with traps and a sprays we spent our 2 weeks spraying this place to keep them under control we found dead cockroaches every day in the place, we are quite aware in hot countries do have cockroaches, we are not novices we have come across them before, but not to the extent like this

This did spoil our holiday and the owner did say it will be fumigated when we left the property, I really hope this did happen or no doubt some other poor guest holiday will be ruined

The area mar de cristal is lovely and the beach front playa Honda has also a really lovely beach

Visit Cartagena the buildings and the marina very pretty and Cabos market on a sunday is worth a visit

Fair

  • 3 of 5

Would have liked the property to have been aired, a strong musty smell in twin bedroom. Outside area's could have done with a good sweep and wash down. Would have been good if we were told that Spain doesn't open until 1st June.....apart from those niggles the property and location were ideal.

Lovely bungalow in a good location.

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a lovely break, based in this bungalow. The location is very good, just 5-10 mins walk to local beach. Beautiful swimming pool in lovely setting of palm trees and gardens. Lovely just to sit outside (always quiet when we were there) and overlook the gardens and pool. The air con was most welcome and was needed during our stay. Ian is helpful and informative on arrival. We recommend beaches at Playa Honda and Calblanque, well worth visiting!. Go to Caba de Palos and find the La Tana restaurant for a lovely fish themed menu. Would recommend to family and friends.

Mar de Cristal is a small typically Spanish village with lovely marina based at the southern end of the Mar Menor within a few minutes drive from Cabo de Palos which is a wonderful working fishing village with fantastic seafood restaurants.

The bungalow is just 5 minutes walk to the beach

Also in very close access is the famous La Manga Strip with many water sports available both on the Mar Menor and the Mediterranean.

15 Minutes drive will take you to the historic naval city of Cartagena with superb architecture and wonderful Marina. With history going back thousands of years this city has something to offer everyone and should not be missed.

From our location you will be spoilt for choice with activities if you wish or just enjoy a wonderfully peaceful relaxing holiday.

Spend lazy days on the blue flag beaches and in the evening take a leisurely stroll to the seafront and enjoy an authentic Spanish meal prepared with local produce from land and sea.

Golf: The world famous La Manga Club is just 10 minutes drive away with 3 courses to choose from

Within 30 minutes drive are many more course including the Polaris world resorts with their Jack Nichlaus designed courses
