Albatros is a stylish and thoughtfully designed family home set in its own gardens with good sized private pool, just 2 mins walk from the nearest clear water cove.
The bedrooms are all comfortable with plenty of cupboard space and each of the 4 bathrooms have showers - plus there's an additional shower poolside.
There are a number of seating and dining areas inside and out - fully shaded and part shaded - for relaxing and dining with plenty of additional chairs (and tables) available to those shown in the photos.
The main house kitchen is fully stocked with all the utensils and numbers of crockery/cutlery sets you would find in any sizeable family home. There is also a large American double door fridge/freezer, 4 ring gas hob with extractor, fan oven and microwave.
Particularly useful is the self-contained 2 double bedroom garden apartment with its own kitchen and TV/DVD/games/living space, offering optimum flexibility and privacy.
In addition, there's table tennis in outside covered area.
All bed linen is 100% cotton and bath towels are provided for all guests. Pre- and post-stay house cleaning is included in the cost of hire, as is pool cleaning and garden maintenance twice a week. Every 7 days, the house is cleaned and bed linen changed. Additional mid-stay cleans and changes of bed linen are charged additionally and available on request from the property manager on arrival.
The house is laid over 3 floors. On the first floor is the large master bedroom suite with terrace overlooking Cabo de Palos and the Mediterranean. On the ground floor is the large farmhouse kitchen, TV/DVD viewing area and large dining and living areas. In addition, there are 3 bedrooms on this floor: the four poster double bedroom and 2 twin bedrooms and 2 family bathrooms - renovated spring 2018. On the lower-ground floor is the garden apartment with kitchen and living area, 2 double bedrooms (one with kingsize bed) and beautifully renovated wet room. This is perfect for a couple with 2 or 3 small children as there is space for the additional put-up bed available and you cannot be heard from the main house! Alternatively, for members of the group who prefer a little respite from the energy of the rest of the party, this can prove to be a very welcome getaway.
There is air-conditioning in all bedrooms as well as ceiling fans - whichever you prefer to use. (Air-conditioning units are covered to protect them from the salty sea air during the cooler months of the year and therefore only in use during July/Aug/Sept).
Outside, by the pool is a semi-shaded relaxing area with coffee table as well as a fully covered area for dining al fresco without over-heating. There are other table and chair areas around the garden for relaxing at different times of the day, as the sun moves from east to west. The pool is to the east/south side of the house so benefits from sun up to about 6pm. The pool is not heated and hits swimming temperatures from mid-May to mid-October. The rest of the year it is covered for protection.
There is plenty of parking outside the house and don't be surprised if once you arrived, you don't set foot in the car again until you leave... there is so much to do and all services - groceries, bank, chemist, restaurants, etc - are within walking distance of the villa.
There is a large, cleverly disguised, area outside for hanging wet clothes and a utility room with Bosch washing machine and condenser dryer (should you need it).
