Large apartment balcony overlooked lovely gardens and ornamental pool so perfect place to concentrate. Complex was right in front of marina and beach with lots of restaurants and bars a few hundred meters away for the evening and breakfast. Really loved it, and having the pool (although a bit cold in January) was nice to have the option. Apartment was spotless and lots of storage etc. Really nice, would highly recommend.

                                                                                                    5 of 5

This villa was well maintained and clean on arrival. It was a well kept complex with gardens and communal pools. The property was very private, well looked after with everything available to make us feel at home, including WiFi. It had a nice patio area in the garden with an attractive pool. This pool was cleaned regularly during our 6 week stay. We had driven from the UK, therefore it was nice to have a secure parking area in the driveway adjacent to the property enclosed by double gates. The property was near to beaches, restaurants, bars and supermarkets. To explore the area it is advisable to have access to a car. There are several very nice restaurants in Mojacar, one in particular was the Bella Vista on the road opposite the beach. Also, once again in Mojacar there is a very nice Indian Restaurant called the New Indian Curry House. If you like Indian it is certainly worth a try. Not so attractive from the outside, but staff are very helpful and food is excellent. Good restaurants and small but interesting shops in Garrucha too. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and did some very enjoyable walks along the coastal paths etc., Certainly will be telling our family and friends of this lovely villa. The owners were in contact with us via email on arrival which was a very nice gesture. Thank you. We have many fond memories of this holiday and look forward to a further visit soon to this lovely villa! Well Done ! Jackie & Henk Vonk
