About the property

4 bedroom villa with private pool

Los Jazmines is situated on the 17th fairway of the prestigious Desert Springs golf course. Just a 10 minute drive from the coast and nearby Mojacar, Garrucha and Villaricos. The villa is furnished to a high standard both inside and out and has air conditioning throughout. The kitchen is fully equipped, including dishwasher, washing machine, fridge/freezer and microwave. The patio doors from the lounge open up onto a large terrace area perfect for al fresco dining with patio tables and chairs/sun loungers and barbecue area looking onto the private pool. Upstairs is a spacious en-suite bedroom with patio doors leading onto the private solarium which overlooks the golf course and magnificent mountain views. The villa has wi-fi.

Golf Information:: The Desert Springs Golf Course is the first Arizona style desert golf course in Europe. The course has been built to the full USGA specifications. Suitable for both the beginner and the experienced golfer the fairways have been kept generously wide but the springs, watercourses, dry river beds, rocks, thousands of cacti and numerous bunkers will test the skills of the low handicapper. The 18-hole Indiana course opened in 2001 and was designed by Peter McEvoy.

Practice facilities are fantastic and special rate discounts are often available throughout the summer months.

There are many other golf courses in the area, i.e. Valle Del Este Golf Course which is a real challenge. Other courses include San Juan, Cortijo Grande, La Envia, Marina Golf and Almerimar, all within a short drive away, you will find information in the villa about these courses along with directions, telephone numbers etc.

Other information: : You do not need to be a golfer to enjoy a holiday at Desert Springs. On the resort you will find tennis courts, a well equipped gym, a volley ball court and a kids indoor play area including giant drafts and chess, a pool table, and fun video games. There are two restaurants on site, both just a short walk away from the villa. One is the luxurious club house where you can have lunch or dinner and enjoy the beautiful panoramic views over the golf course. The other is the Crocodile Club where you can get anything from burgers and fries to fresh fish of the day or steak, there is something for everyone. You can even order takeaway pizzas if you just fancy a night in with a bottle of wine. You could always just relax by their pool (there is a small charge for using their pool), with contra current and mister as well as jacuzzi and children's splash pool and sand pit and have a cocktail while the kids enjoy themselves. You can pick up a few essentials from the Club House.

Airports:: Almeria airport is the closest only being around a 45 minute drive away, Murcia is approximately 1 hour 15 mins down the new toll road and Alicante is approximately 1 hr 45 mins, all being within easy reach of Desert Springs.

About Elaine or Steve Gray

We are a family of 4 and live in the north of England where the weather is usually cold, this is why we decided to buy a villa in Spain. We are a golfing family, and our daughter has recently completed a charity cycle ride from Lands end to John O'Groats raising nearly £10,000. Our son is a professional golfer and enjoys spending time practicing at Desert Springs and nearby Valle del Este over the winter months.

Elaine or Steve Gray purchased this villa in 2010

Why Elaine or Steve Gray chose Cuevas del Almanzora

We visited Almeria nearly 15 years ago and loved the area. We bought a villa off plan, loved it and after 5 years we upgraded to a larger property with private pool.

What makes this villa unique

We love the outdoors in spain, whether its eating alfresco, swimming in the pool or just watching the evening sun go down with a G & T on the patio the weather here is fantastic.

Guestbook comments from the owner

A truly fabulous holiday, home from home. Beautiful villa which had everything you could need. Perfect location 10 mins from the beach, we loved the little villages of Garrucha and Mojacar. We had some lovely meals out, walks, bike rides and golf all in the sunshine which made it very special. Thank you, we would love to come back.

Fabulous villa in fabulous surroundings

  • 5 of 5

This villa has the Wow factor from the second you open the door and see the beautiful tasteful decor. Further exploration reveals a lovely comfortable immaculate home where every detail has been catered for.

The pool and veranda area are just as comfortable and sipping wine watching the sunset is an amazing experience.

The Crocodile club was lovely for dinner and we enjoyed several lovely lunches in the clubhouse.

Can't wait to return!

The villa is very comfortable, equipped with everything you could possibly need. The pool was gorgeous with relaxing surroundings. The property was very clean and well maintained.

The resort is lovely with a good golf course. All the staff were helpful and attentive. The owner of the villa was very helpful prior to our holiday and provided us with useful information.

beautiful oasis

  • 5 of 5

Our family has recently spent a fabulous 9 days at Los Jasmines: the villa is beautiful, immaculately clean & very well appointed. Located overlooking the 17th green, the villa boasts a gorgeous well kept garden, pool, furnished patio and a large gas bbq for al fresco dining. In addition, a sunny upstairs terrace opens off the master bedroom and has views of the golf course .My husband and son enjoyed the golf and at a fraction of the price of other Spanish courses. The club house on site was a lovely place for an early evening drink and the food in the club house restaurant was superb with the menu changing every other day. In addition the Crocodile club also served meals on a saturday & sunday. if you want to explore the lovely coastal area of Almeria you will need a car and will find several glorious beaches close by. The nearby towns of Garrucha, Vera & Mojacar boast many bars and restaurants in which to sample spanish tapas & sangria. All in all we loved evey minute of our spanish holiday in this beautiful oasis . julie, Chris & Jack Toyne

The perfect villa holiday

  • 5 of 5

One of the best holidays we have had, will never do another package holiday again. The villa had everything you could want with such a well equipped kitchen. We loved the patio and pool area, we had many barbecues, the kids just loved it. We enjoyed exploring the area, eating tapas by the beach and paella in the chiringuitos. Kids loved the go karts and water park, men enjoyed the golf and the apre golf at the club house and crocodile club, mums enjoyed the many markets and not forgetting the on site spa. Something for all ages.

Villa review

  • 5 of 5

Excellent property, very clean and well maintained. Accurately described in the property listing. Villa was easy to find from the owners instructions.

Owners were very helpful and kept in regular contact throughout.

Fantastic location, very private, swimming pool was great, our children really enjoyed themselves. On site facilities were also very good. Nearby beaches were very clean and safe.

We would certainly recommend this property to anyone looking for a great holiday.

Car is essential.
