About Tony and Julie Martin

For the last 10 years we have lived in Spain in the Sierra de Los Filabres (Mountains of the Filters) about 45 minutes inland from Casita Sophie.Before our move to Spain we lived in Cheshire. Having travelled all over the UK with our work,we are now retired.We have 1 daughter who is married with 1 daughter (our granddaughter)and lives in Cheshire.

Tony and Julie Martin purchased this house in 2012

Why Tony and Julie Martin chose Puerto Rey

Our main reason for buying this house was because we live inland we wanted a holiday home near the coast.Having guests stay to enjoy our house is a bonus to us.It is very close to the beach which can be reached on foot in 4 minutes by Tony and 5 minutes by Julie ! It takes a similar time by car by a different route.There are also all kinds of restaurants and facilities in the area including the AquaPark and an excellent bus service. The house is well laid out and people say it is larger than it looks in the photos.The Residencial is very attractive and is maintained to very high standards.

What makes this house unique

We like the fact that, whilst most of the properties on the complex face each other or the road,our property looks out over a rambla (river bed). The roof terrace is a good place to top up your tan, cook a meal on the BBQ and eat your food.Then relax in the evening with a very inexpensive bottle of wine or beer.

Free WIFI included.

UK TV and Spanish TV .

Pedestrians only, free parking outside the complex.

A month of sun in mid winter!

  • 5 of 5

Casita Sophie is a small but well maintained house ideal for a small family or couple. It is located in Playa Laguna within easy walking distance to local amenities which include a number of small supermarkets, restaurants, cycling shops and bars. It is also within a 10 to 15 minutes walk (or 5 mins cycle) from Garrucha along a nice and well maintained promenade. The house was clean, well equipped and boasted a lovely roof top terrace for sunbathing and sundowners. The house is south facing so the porch area was a real sun trap and great for breakfasting. Tony and Julie were very helpful both prior to our arrival and during our stay. We shall be returning next year.

Our 3rd holiday here!

  • 5 of 5

Our 3rd holiday here and as perfect as our previous 2. Tony and Julie, the owners, think of everything to make this house a 'home from home'. Very clean and comfortable - could not be bettered. Garrucha has multitude of great places to eat - we were spoilt for choice. This holiday house is in the perfect spot to explore the beautiful coastline. We would give it 6 stars if we could! Pete & Pauline

The house is situated on Vera Playa on the outskirts of Garrucha which is an old Spanish fishing village, lying between Mojacar and Vera. Around the marina are plenty of bars and restaurants to suit most tastes. The area is renowned for its fabulous seafood. In high season the Garrucha promenade has a late night market with craft stalls and gifts that is great for a stroll after an evening meal. There are plenty of pavement cafe bars in which to watch the world go by.

Local activities include water sports, fishing, deep sea diving, horse riding, 5 golf courses, go-carting and also a water park approximately 1 mile away. There is a bus which takes you straight there and back along the coast to Mojacar.

Mini-Hollywood is only a 45 minute drive away. This is where such films as The Good The Bad and The Ugly were made. There is a well maintained Zoo and the price includes use of the pool.

Golf: There are a number of excellent golf courses within easy reach of Garrucha e.g.. Valle del Este is an 18 hole PGA golf course, the Indiana Course on the Desert Springs Golf Resort and Marina Golf in Mojacar which offers an 18 hole, par 72 course. There is enough to satisfy the most ardent golfer.

The property has a STRICTLY NO SMOKING policy.
