2 Identical villas a good sized modern 2 bedroomed villa with a feeling of home.
Casa Benedict is a small holiday retreat comprising 2 villas & 2 apartments, so available as individual units or ideal for family & friends to share whilst being independent.
Situated in peaceful surroundings near a typical Spanish village, 5 Min by car to the Resort and Beaches of Mojacar and the fishing port of Garrucha. Our Villas and Apartments are set in a garden of three acres planted with oranges, lemons, olives, figs, etc. Large patio area with barbecue around the swimming pool, lovely ornamental garden pond and gazebo for relaxing in the shade.
Good security with electronic gate access, guests provided with remote. The property is newly built and provides everything you should need
T.V, microwave, washing machine, fridge, iron, etc. Two bedrooms, 1 double, 1 twin, with bed settee in the lounge area to accommodate up to six people per villa. Pool and facilities only used by the villas and apartments so very private and quiet. Panoramic mountain views in all directions.
We have installed a 2.4 metre satellite dish and are still able to receive British T.V. channels
Locality: An enchanting Moorish village, nestled between the Mediterrasnean and the Sierra Cabrera mountains, with narrow winding streets of whitewashed houses opening out into small Plazas. Mojacar is an ideal base from which to explore the real Andalucia- the countryside and villages surrounding Mojacar have altered very little over the centuries. Mojacar's gently shelving beach is over 4 kilometres long, windsurfing and sailing are just two of the water sports available. Browse for bargains in the colourful local markets, centred round authentic Spanish restaurants and Tapas bars.
Ambience: If you are looking for clear skies, reliable sunshine and fine beaches, look no further than the Costa Almeria, with at least 300 sunny days a year, and more total daylight per year than anywhere in the world, this part of Spain has the perfect holiday climate.
This small complex is owned and run by English couple along with their two dogs Tia a Black Labrador and Mac a Golden Labrador both have been raised alongside children and are very friendly (they get more comments in the visitors book than we do) we are happy to give any help and advice to make your stay more pleasurable.
Our complex is newly purpose-built and consists of 2 attached villas, a 2 bedroomed apartment and a 1 bedroomed apartment all totally self-contained around a central swimming pool with a smaller children's pool attached. Set in an area of three and a half acres, planted with orange, lemon, mandarin, grapefruit, olive and fig trees. Each villa comprises two double bedrooms, one with double bed, the other with twin beds. Bathroom and kitchen, lounge/diner, patio doors to dining terrace and spiral staircase up onto rooftop sun terrace. The villa accommodation is designed ideally for 4 people, but can comfortably take six using the sofa bed in the main lounge.
We purchased Casa Benedict after deciding to escape the usual drudgery of sitting in Traffic jams on our usual commute to work and after a short break in Barcelona where we loved the Spanish way of life.
We also live on the property in an adjoining 3 bed villa.
Ian or Jan purchased this villa in 2004
The property was only 2 years old when we purchased it and we wanted to move to Spain but still need a small income to pay our way. We have always had our faithful dogs and we needed plenty of space for them as well. At the time of purchase Jan's Daughter and grandchildren were also living in the area but have now moved back to the U.K.
We fell in love with Casa Benedict on the first viewing and made an immediate offer after sitting on what is now our front terrace enjoying the views of The Cabrera Mountains and the village of Mojacar set at the foot of the mountains.
Comments from our visitors books
Our stay here has been fantastic, brilliant apartment, pool, garden & area. You both have made us feel very welcome and at home. We will recommend you to everyone - Mr & Mrs Ray Hampshire.
We have been made very welcome and provided with everything we could want. Nothing was too much trouble for Ian & Jan - Mr & Mrs Pollard Nr.Manchester.
We love it here Ian & Jan were fabulous hosts. Casa Benedict has the homely touch and the little things like the info folder and Tara & Macy (Eddie Loves Them) make a difference. Thanks for a brilliant stay we shall return - Mr & Mrs Hickman with Eddie aged 6.
Thanks to Ian & Jan we have really enjoyed our time here. The Villa, Pool & Garden have been great and Rumer has used all her camera film on the dogs. The setting & location of the Villa combined with the hospitality ensured that the two weeks have been the most relaxing & pleasurable - Mr & Mrs McDermott Sheffield
Andrew and I spent three out of five weeks at this wounderful location. The first was to size the place up as we had booked for two weeks in May for family and friends to celebrate my birthday. It was amazing it had everthing we wanted and more. Great location, totally safe with masses of space,beautfully kept and perfect for a large gathering.
Jan and Ian could not have been more helpfull, toys for the grandchildren, extra large pots and pans all arrived before we asked, everthing was done to make our stay perfect. They even arranged the weather.
The dogs were a great hit even with Amy aged 2 who was frightened of dogs when she arrived. By day two she was feeding Tara and calling her to join us.
The location on site of the villas and apartments lend themselves to the perfect place for a large gathering we could not have choosen better.
We left with new friends and intend to return again unfortunatly not to celebrate another 60th birthday.
Cannot find fault with any aspect of this stay at Casa Benedict. We stayed in Casa Helena which is a home from home well equipped comfy villa. Lots of space and everything you need. The location was great, charming and peaceful with Turre and Mojacar nearby. Ian and Jan could not have been more helpful. I had a medical emergency whilst there and honestly they were amazing to us. The garden is beautiful and the pool area is large with plenty of loungers, 2 bbq's and is a welcome site after a hot day at the beach or just as lovely to sit and relax around the pool all day. For those who like their TV there are many English channels and we watched most of the Euro's there. Of course I have to mention Mac and Tia resident dogs who we feel in love with and miss them so much. Cannot recommend Casa Bemedict highly enough and can't wait to go back. Have recommended to all friends and family. Wish we were there right now. Thank you Ian and Jan.

We were in the area looking to buy a property, and Casa Benedict was the perfect place to come back to relax after a busy day looking at other properties.
We stayed in Casa Helena. The Villa was beautiful and immaculate and was equipped with everything we needed.
Ian & Jan the owners of Casa Benedict made us feel thoroughly welcome and nothing was too much trouble. They were also a great help answering our questions about the different areas we were looking at, the local estate agents and giving us sound advice about buying a property.
