Simon gave us a warm welcome and was very helpful during our stay. He arranged transport for us to and from the airport as we requested. The apartment is just as described and was very comfortable, a real home from home. We had to stay indoors a few times because it rained and we felt warm and cozy. It was nice to have the extra touches such as dressing gowns and slippers. The view from the apartment is even better than in the photos and you can see right around Mojacar to Vera and beyond. The apartment is in a good position, as it's easy to walk to the pueblo or down to the beach and of course there is a bus stop nearby and they run every half hour. We would thoroughly recommend this property.

The villa is spacious, comfortable, with the most gorgeous views over the resort of Mojacar playa and the nearby mountains. Both the owner, Chris and his agent at the resort, Christine are very helpful and easily contacted if required (we had a small issue with the hot water). We made the most of the sunshine on the roof terrace which got the sun almost all day - we didn't use the pool area as it was always in shade this time of year (Nov). We had good internet and free view tv at the villa which meant we didn't have to go out to find entertainment unless we wanted (although a lot of places are closed in Nov)and the kitchen facilities were more than adequate to cook up our favourite meals. For a meal out we highly recommend Bellavista which is a 20 minute stroll along the seafront. All in all we had a comfortable, relaxing holiday and we certainly intend to visit again.

It is on a modern development slightly outside of Turre itself but this was perfect for a relaxing, private holiday. Sunny days and warm October evenings sat outside on the patio are a lasting memory. Turre is a short walk away, or just a few minutes by car, and here there are several shops and supermarkets from which to purchase provisions, and enough cafes, restaurants and bars to keep one fully occupied without need to travel further. There are many other places to visit, fairly close to hand, too.
