About the property

Stunning detached villa with outstanding sea and mountain views and private pool

One of the most beautiful detached villas in the village of Isla Plana. Affording stunning sea and mountain views across the bay of La Azohia. FREE Wi-Fi throughout the villa. A very large private pool with built in jacuzzi and water feature. Outside terraces designed for summer living and eating, fully automatic exterior lighting with extra coloured floodlighting helping to create a magical experience. Huge open plan lounge with cream leather suite and a dining area seating 8 persons. Flat screen 47' HD TV with blue ray DVD player and English satellite TV and Spanish TV and hi fi cd player. Fully equipped kitchen with everything you would need and more ! the kitchen leads directly onto the large outside terrace with gas BBQ and gas griddle and dining table seating six people, with stunning views across the bay.

we have 2 double bedrooms with sea views on the ground floor and one twin bedroom on the first floor with an en-suite and its own secluded terrace with amazing views across the sea and to the mountains. All bedroom have ceiling fans and air conditioning. 2 bathrooms both with showers and one with a bath as well. The saloon has ceiling fans and free standing fan, Ample secure parking for up to 4 cars.

Basically the villa is equipped to the highest standard throughout with everything you would expect from a villa of this quality to help make your holiday as comfortable as possible and a memorable experience.


a little bit extra for piece of mind.

historic city of Cartagena: just 25 minutes drive and you are in Cartagena, this city has had a fortune spent on it and is well worth visiting. If you are into history Cartagena is overflowing with culture and its Roman past. The dock front is now a trendy and facinating place to visit. Cartagena is now one of the major destinations for world cruise ships. They are very close to the frontage and make a fantastic view, even the new Queen Elizabeth is a regular visitor.

There is a very interesting boat trip that takes you around the navy docks and visits the oil refinery with all the large ships coming in and out.

For the ladies the clothes shops are stunning !

Guestbook comments from the owner

Review submitted by Yvonne from Cugy (Submitted: 7 Sep 2012)

We had a lovely, relaxing, two week stay here. The owners, Chris and Josephine, were there to greet us and were available throughout our stay to answer questions such as recommending restaurants etc. The villa itself was spotlessly clean and very well equipped. The swimming pool is a very good size for a villa.The sea views from the terraces are magnificent. We managed to spot two Hoopoes during our stay. Isla Plana itself is small but does have restaurants. The Port of Mazarron, which is lively but family oriented, is nearby and the city of Cartagena within easy visiting distance.

Great Villa with Fantastic owners, 5 Stars.

  • 5 of 5

Villa was perfect with views to die for, pool was spotless and the owners made us feel very welcome,

Chris and Josephine had left a special welcome pack which meant we never had to go out for anything for a day at least.

Village was just what we were looking for,Typically Spanish and friendly locals.

we will definitely go back (if we are allowed!)

Perfect Paradise..Stunning property inside and out

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Chris and Josephene,

We had the most perfect stay in your home. We felt at home as soon as we walked in the door.

You really do go out of your way to make guests feel welcome. Cold drinks, beer and wine in the fridge for our arrival along with some lovely snacks. Bread tea coffee etc in fact all your usual requirements, You thought of everything, right down to the hairdryers and toiletries.

The villa is set in a residential area which was lovely and peaceful.

We loved the decor too, Chris shows his passion for music through the prints and pictures on the walls throughout the property.

We spent most of our time outside in the numerous patio areas as well as by the gorgeous pool, and used the bbq everyday. Looking out at those stunning sea and mountains views , you just couldn't beat it. At sunset the best way to enjoy the mountain views is both from the uspstairs ensuite double bedroom with a balcony or just simply sit on the steps leading out from the lounge ( with panoramic views) to the pool.

The little town at the bottom of the hill is an easy 4-5 minute stroll. Such a friendly place.

My only complaint is that we didn't book this for longer. If there is a chance we get another break this year we will certainly be booking this villa again. Thank you both again for making this one of the best holidays we have ever had.

Comfortable villa with fantastic outdoor spaces

  • 5 of 5

Our holiday was made so enjoyable not just because of the superb weather which lasted throughout our stay in early September but also because of the comfort afforded to us by this villa. Well equipped and nicely set out we particularly enjoyed the outdoor spaces including the pool and the wonderful views of the Med. Highly recommended we also were made to feel so welcome by the owners who were always willing to assist in whatever way was needed. If you want a relaxing holiday then look no further.

Wonderful views, very spacious and homely

  • 5 of 5

We spent a very lovely 3 weeks here. The villa has everything you need, Chris and Josephine have thought of all the fine details that make for a very relaxing stay. The kitchen had more equipment than we have at home, things such as sharp knives, clingfilm, picnic boxes, a steamer, you name it, it is there! Little things like loo roll, insect repellent, cold drinks in the fridge, washing up liquid, washing powder, bed side clocks and shower gel were all available. The rooms are large and airy and the blinds make it cool and secure at night. Everything was spotlessly clean and the beds were very comfortable. The house is within walking distance from the lovely local beaches and restaurants. La Azohia is a very short drive and the beaches here are particularly beautiful and calm for swimming. We really enjoyed the pool area and the ease of which you can access the house from the pool, great with children especially because it can be closed off so they cannot use it unsupervised. The neighborhood is quiet and we spent most evenings on the kitchen terrace using the gas BBQ enjoying the peace. The views from everywhere in the house really are special, especially the sunsets from the pool terrace steps. We very much hope to visit again And would not hesitate to recommend ⭐️⭐️
