About Nigel Jealous
Wendy and Nigel Jealous, married in 1976, with 3 grown up children and three grand children. We live in Ashby De La Zouch, Leicestershire, UK. We love holidaying as it allows us to indulge in our favourite hobbies, namely - relaxing, eating, drinking and golf. Our stunning penthouse on Mar Menor golf resort, is beautifully furnished, has a 65 sq m roof terrace boasting stunning views of the golf course, lake, swimming pools and mountains. There are numerous clean, safe, sandy beaches 5-10 mins drive away. It is very peaceful but close to the action! We also have a beautiful villa on Polaris Worlds 5 star flagship 'El Valle' Resort. Peaceful, but still offers families plenty to do besides golf. It has a Jack Nicklaus golf course, tennis, gym, private pool and other communal pools, restaurants, bars and shops.
Nigel Jealous purchased this Apartment in 2009
Why Nigel Jealous chose Torre-Pacheco
We always (without exception) receive 5 star guest reviews, with many guests returning. We recently in 2017 added a large pergola with retractible awning, which can cover the huge roof terraces outdoor dining area and also an additional sun bathing area. This region of Spain enjoys on average 320 of sunshine each year! A good selection of safe & clean beaches (Blue Flag) within 5-10 minutes. Easy and cheap to get to with the low cost airlines. We often pop over for long weekends. Murcia (San Javier) Airport only 8-10 minutes away, Alicante Airport 50 mins. 22 quality golf courses all within a 10 miles. A good selection of restaurants and bars offering great of tapa, seafood and steaks. No high rise apartment blocks, no high rise hotels and especially no lager louts. Our penthouse apartment has a stunning roof terrace with 'views to die for'. 20 minutes drive from the historic Cities of Cartagena (with its port) and Murcia (with its river) both are beautiful, with good shopping. This is a very traditional area of Spain.
What makes this Apartment unique
STUNNING VIEWS and ROOF TERRACES! Our luxury penthouse apartment has been furnished and finished to a very high standard with the curtains and many of the soft furnishings bespoke hand made. We used a local interior designer. Its outstanding feature is the 65 sq m. roof terrace (the size of a normal 2 bedroom apartment), which boasts truly stunning views of the Mar Menor lagoon (Little Sea), La Manga Strip, golf course set around a beautiful large lake, swimming & paddling pool, with spectacular mountain views in the distance. It benefits from all day sunshine. In 2017 we added a large pergola to the roof terrace with a retractible awning, to offer cover to the dining area and additional sun bathing area. It also has a 32 sq m. rear balcony with shaded area (a further retractible awning) over looking the swimming & paddling pools, golf course with lake & stunning mountain views. Our apartment is a gentle 10 minute stroll from the supermarket, bars, restaurant, golf club house & luxury spa. Quite yet there is plenty to do!

Wonderful stay in a great apartment and resort
My wife and I stayed at this wonderful apartment for 12 days around Easter 2018. We loved the apartment and it's spectacular views of the golf course on one side and the villas of Mar Menor on the other side. The location of the apartment i ideal, relatively close to the driving rang and hotel on one side and overlooking the lake and golf course on the other side. The apartment was well equipped and comfortable. We will definitely be back!

Dear Bjorn and Cheryl. Thank you for your review and we are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay and in particular the views from the apartment terrace area. We look forward to welcoming you back.
Nigel and Wendy
We had a lovely holiday here, just home yesterday. This penthouse has fantastic views, very close to the pool, you can view from the balcony, and on the other side lovely views of the villas which looks fabulous lit up at nighttime. The patio areas are massive with awnings on both side for added shade. You really don’t need to leave this apartment as u can sunbathe all day and dine also. We made good use of the supermarket and local restaurants, the food was excellent. And they also do take away. Nigel’s apartment was spotless, had all mod cons and he was available by email for any questions I had whilst there. His instructions of how to get to and enter the property where really straight forward. I would strongly recommend this property and will definitely be back. Nigel kept in touch during our stay and after we came home to make sure we had a great time, really lovely touch and we felt really well looked after.
"Great apartment with stunning views Finished to a very high standard, with superb outside space. Nigel and Wendy made everything really straight forward. Great golf resort with plenty of places to eat we will definitely return"
Fantastic apartment with lovely views
The apartment is extermely comfortable and of a high standard. The balconies, especially the one off the lounge, are huge! A wonderful place to be able to sit and eat/drink outside and look at the beautiful views. The apartment is only a short drive from the centre of the resort so is well placed. The owners, Nigel and Wendy, could not have been more hospitable. A definite return for my family and I in the near future.
Escape from grey skies,
Clean,wonderful amenities, everything you need for a self catering holiday. Except we cheated and took advantage of the wonderful restaurants available nearby and in Los Alcazares with its wonderful beach. A short trip to Cartagena which is almost a city of old Rome finishing up with La Manga strip and its wonderful warm Mar Menor. Back to the cool penthouse to relax in stylish comfort. Our first visit but not our last, Many thanks to Nigel and Wendy.
Many thanks for your positive guest review, it means a lot to Wendy & I. I hope we will see you again as indicated!

Fantastic Holiday Penthouse
We've just come back from a fantastic holiday, by far one of the best apartments I've stayed at on the Mar Menor Resort. The outdoor space was amazing and the views were fab. The on site management service was brilliant as well, hotel is 5 star, we spent a lot of the time at the apartment on the very spacious veranda enjoying the views as well as a few drinks meals with the family until late into the evening. A must visit for everyone it's absolutely wonderful.
Many thanks for your wonderful review. Wendy and I also love our place and comments like yours make it an absolute pleasure to share it with others. It is also gratifying to hear great comments about our management, as we appreciate it is not all down to the property itself no matter how stunning it is. We will look forward to your return in the future.
We are back there agin in November and counting the days!
