About Karen Biggin

Rob runs a Business skills focused training and coaching company and Karen is Head of Faculty for an FE College. We have two grown up children living in London. We tend to use the villa ourselves for 6 or 7 weeks in the year so are always on the look out for things to improve.

Karen Biggin purchased this villa in 2001

Why Karen Biggin chose Cartagena

We have been spending our holidays in La Manga since our children were small. We've always loved the fact that it's easy to get to, safe and has just about every sport and every kind of food that you can think of on the resort. We bought the property off-plan for one simple reason... The Views... On a summer evening we can think of nothing better than glass of wine, BBQ sizzling , seeing the sun go down,the lights twinkling, the peace and quiet of the community with a view to die for.... However you do always the ability to walk down to the busier areas if you want to to sample the various bars and restaurants and we do that too!

What makes this villa unique

Families have the use of a shared pool with toddler area that very rarely gets too busy even in high season. Golfers have 3 challenging courses to go at and more nearby. Tennis lovers have every surface and top coaches to choose from. Cricket, football and rugby schools cater for keen kids. Loads of restaurants and bars on resort and just outside. Friendly people and pretty well guaranteed sun. What's not to like??

2nd visit to Las Palmitas 5 - April 09

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to this beautiful villa at La Manga Club. It is furnished superbly, has all the mod cons (including wireless broadband which was so easy) and is superbly maintained. All properties within 'The Club' are of a very high standard but this one wins over the others for four very good reasons. Firstly, it is in a tiny community of only 14 villas and is therefore very quiet. Secondly because the community has its' own pool (overlooked by the villa) and can only be used by residents. Thirdly, and unlike many other communities in The Club, this pool is heated which is a real blessing off season. The fourth reason and, in our opinion the most important, the views from the two main terraces are simply stunning. We felt blessed every morning looking out over The Club, its' golf courses and beyond to the Mar Menor - awesome.

The owner is a dream to deal with and the management company will resolve any little problem. We have no hesitation in recommending this villa.

Owner's Response: Just to be completely upfront. The pool is heated only during mid season. The community switches it on from April thru May (Jun-Sept it doesn't require it) and Oct. It's not heated in the winter months...

A great vacation for all the family near the calm waters of the lagoon and the fresh Mediterranean

  • 5 of 5

A well-appointed villa with outstanding views towards La Manga and the Mediterranean. The elevated position ensures a welcome breeze, even on the hottest days. The swimming pool has a separate toddler pool meaning it can be used by everyone of all ages. La Manga Club resort has very good facilities and the fish restaurants of Cabo de Palos are close by. If you yearn for history head to Cartagena with all its Roman remains. Our family headed for the castle where we could look down on the cruise ships as well as the amphitheatre and arena. So, plenty to keep everyone happy.

Lovely, clean and spacious villa with a fantasic view.

  • 5 of 5

This villa is in a small group on a private road making it quiet and relaxing. Only a small number of people using the pool at any one time too. We have been to La Manga Club before and know the resort and all it has to offer but were able to do even more this time. Plenty of restaurants to choose from nearby and if you hire a car you have plenty more activities around the Mar Menor. We really like La Cala and the restaurant there which always does good seafood. We also discovered the coastal town of Portman this time which has some nice bars and restaurants right on the beach. The helpful people down at the bike hire place also arranged some sailing for us, if you like water sports of any kind this is the place for you. This villa suits a large family although we were just the 2 of us and enjoyed it too, you could easily waste a lot of time just sitting on the balcony looking at the view and drinking Sangria! The Owners communication was excellent as was the description and facilities and would stay here again. Only guidance I would give is that if you don't manage stairs very well it may not be for you ;-)

Wonderful villa in La Manga Club.

  • 5 of 5

We spent ten days at this beautiful villa with our 3 boys aged 7, 6 & 2 1/2. The villa had absolutely everything we needed, it was so well equipped & really well maintained. The community of Las Palmitas is small with a communal pool, the pool was quiet when we visited at the end of June but it is large enough that I can't imagine it ever getting too crowded & was perfect for our young children. The views from the balcony & roof of the villa are truly something & got lovely sunshine all day long. Finally, the owner of the villa was great to deal with at each step of the way. We would have no hesitation in recommending this villa.

October 2011

  • 5 of 5

We spent a 1,5 week at the La Manga Club/Resort and enjoyed our stay at this wonderful villa (well-furnished/equipped, basically nothing to complain about at all)... La Manga club is a very nice place for people seeking a holiday destination to relax (beautiful facilities to tennis, golf and swim) and spending some hours to get some "sun vitamines". I must say a perfect getaway for our family, when we are bored by a summer of rain only up here in the Netherlands. Look forward to get back to this place in the future.
