We just had to open the gate and step onto the soft sand of the beach. We had our 2 dogs with us and everything was perfect for them with a secure garden where they could watch people and dogs walking past. There was so much in the house; cinema, table tennis, pool table, a lovely big wide screen TV in the sitting room and of course the bar in the garden where Eddie put in a cask of beer for us. The garden had plenty of seating and we had some nice sunny days in February where we could sit out. There was always a spot in the garden were we could sit in the sun. We could have used the BBQ or pizza oven in the garden but being February we cooked indoors so can't comment on these but they looked impressive. Lots of wardrobe space, a comfy bed in the master suite and the house was nice and clean. We even had a bag of oranges left one day and another day a jug of freshly squeezed orange juice. Nearby Villaricos had plenty of eating and drinking places, and a beach bar within 10 minutes walking distance had good beer and a decent menu. Thank you to Eddie and Ray.

We were booked to arrive at the property at the end of February. However, we were forced to cancel at the last minute, due to an illness in the family. Chris couldn't have been more helpful and sympathetic to our issues. Chris, many thanks again for your understating and excellent communication with us. Although we cannot directly review the property, I know its location and the stunning views it offers over Mojacar Playa. Within a short walk there are numerous bars and restaurants, catering from simple fare to more complex dishes. I would recommend utilising the cheap local bus service. This runs (typically every half hour) in a loop that takes in Mojacar Playa and Mojacar Pueblo. Use it to visit the old town on the hill. With its excellent climate, Mojacar is a year round destination. We hope to return soon and will ensure that we stay at Chris' villa.
