Description

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Vera - Al Andalus Hills

2 bed. 2 bath apartment to sleep 6 close to shops, restaurants and beach

Based on the small community of Al Andalus Hills, this first floor apartment is fantastically appointed with everything for a comfortable holiday. The community is a 50/50 split between Spanish and English ownership which makes a secure and friendly base for your holiday. The community benefits from the use of a heated indoor pool in the winter, or a large outdoor pool and smaller children's pool set in beautiful gardens in the summer. This apartment has balcony views of Mojacar Pueblo.

There is a good bus service to the nearby towns of Garrucha, Mojacar Playa and Vera Town. There are shops, restaurants & cafes and a supermarket within walking distance. The beach is about 15 minutes walk away. There is a traditional Spanish market in a local village most days of the week.

Almeria airport is a 45 minute drive, and Murcia is 1 hour 15 mins. Both airports are served well by budget airlines.

Golf Locally: The local courses are:

Desert Springs in Palomares, which is very friendly to visitors and have an open tee off on Weds am

Valle D'Este at Vera

Cortijo Grande at Mojacar

We have a very nice area, a very lovingly furnished house and a joyful couple caretaker encountered

  • 5 of 5

In the house we found everything we were looking for.

We can recommend this apartment to other guests at any time.

Perhaps we will come back again.

Something we must complain about: There is no WIFI or WLAN in the house. Therefore, we could not use the laptop brought along unfortunately. But only from the mobile expensive to go.

Unfortunately, due to the low season was not very busy. But that was not only in the plant but everywhere.

Best regards, Carmen Karger

Classy place to stay,so comfortable,home from home

  • 5 of 5

Dealing with Karen, the owner, beforehand was a pleasure. She is so positive, and informative about the area, getting there etc. She has an amazing folder set up at the apartment with tips & recommendations, and a comment book that makes really interesting reading! The variety of things to do in the area is huge. However as sun-starved Irish we mainly craved the pool and beaches! Karen has everything ready made for a beach trip with seats, mats, umbrellas, beach towels etc. It was fab to just load up the car and go. Our favourite beach by a long shot was St Juan de la Torreos .We had some memorable meals in the region, best meal at night was at Bellavista, in Mojacar. Great food, unbelievable value, lovely owners who speak great english. The pool was a big draw too, with none of the usual vying for seats, as one has to bring chairs from the apartment themselves! Ingenious. Pool and adjoining area spotless. Met lovely people there too, a good mix of nationalities. Al Andalus Hills is a tastefully designed complex, where privacy is assured, the gardeners are working from morning til night to keep the area pristine! If I had to make a suggestion it would be to request the Spanish children and teenagers on site who congregate behind the apartment to hang out (all perfectly acceptable) to limit it to midnight perhaps...if I had sufficient spanish I would have spoken to them myself. However it was high summer and we took it on the chin, there was no rowdiness,just teenage banter.

Do yourself a favour and book Karen's apartment, its so well thought out, the en suite and separate bathroom with bath are ideal. We spent lots of time relaxing and eating on the balcony, the terrain is so different to home! The mini market is a short walk from the complex, with a bar and restaurant serving good food, made to order, by friendly staff. This place buzzed from morning until evening!

Enjoy!

Clean, well equipped apartment

  • 4 of 5

A gas fire would have been appreciated with the cold weather we had, the ac doesn't seem to reach to the floor, although it feels very warm when you stand up. The only other thing we would like to see is wifi, something we all tend to use on a daily basis these days.

Appreciated the comfortable beds and the showers were more reliable than many in Spain. The bits and pieces in the drawers were very useful eg. cotton and needles, adapters, sellotape etc. We loved the selection of books and games. Generally very well equipped. We thought sending the keys was a good idea as one never knows what time one will arrive and it saves Carina being on standby at all odd hours. Carina had to arrange a plumber just before we arrived , who returned on our first day, as there was a problem with a neighbouring apartment but all quickly sorted, Carina seemed very pleasant and helpful.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to review as we really value your comments. Efficient Wifi is a real issue in the area and we are constantly evaluating new methods of getting a reliable system, not just to our apartment, but for the whole community. We find telephone and tv satellite receptions really poor too. Just one of the wonders of rural Spain, but frustrating, I know, in the 21st Century. Karen

Génial pour la famille

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons adoré cet appartement dans lequel nous avons trouvé tous les éléments nécessaires à des vacances en famille réussies. Les lieux étaient impeccables et tels que décrits. La responsable était charmante et toujours disponible pour nous aider. Il y a plusieurs plages à proximité et la piscine est à deux pas si on ne veut pas se déplacer. Merci!

Fantástico apartamente en un lugar privilegiado.

  • 5 of 5

El apartamento es muy coqueto. Tiene todo lo necesario. Es como si estuvieras en casa. No le falta detalle. Está en una urbanización un poco alejada de la playa, a 10 min. andando, lo que le da una mayar tranquilidad.

E l lugar es envidiable, con, unas playas inmensas, temperatura fantástica y gente agradable por todos los lugares.

Pasamos una semana espectacular en compañía de nuestros perritos y la dueña siempre ha estado dispuesta a colaborar en todo los imprescindible.

Recomendable 100%

Close to the beach, Parque Acuatico, Supermarket of Consum, and restaurants, this two bedroom apartment makes an excellent base for a family holiday in the summer or a longer winter break. The south facing balcony overlooks Mojacar Pueblo. If you don't want to go the beach everyday, there is an indoor pool in the winter months, and a lovely outdoor pool set in well maintained gardens. There are lots of beaches within a 10 minute drive of the apartment, in addition to one long, natural sand beach in a 10 minute walk. The apartment has everything you would need for a family holiday - all the basic modern conveniences as well as pool toys, goggles and a wide range of English books. Your family will not be bored here! We struggle to drag our children away from the outdoor pool in the summer, but we love exploring the many local beaches, especially diving from rocks and snorkelling in the clear waters.

Other Activities: caving, waterpark, go karting

Golf: The apartment is only a few minutes drive from:

Cortijo Grande, Mojacar

Valle D'Este, Vera

Desert Springs, Palomares

All are very welcoming to non-members and Cortijo Grande does 'open Wednesdays' where individual players can turn up to tee off with others.

Ski: The Spanish Ski resort of Pradallano is a 2 hour drive away from the apartment, so it is possible to swim in the Med sea in the morning and ski in the afternoon. We recommend you take overnight gear, because we got snowed in!
