About Ms Jane MacDonald
We are married with two children, two dogs and a cat! We have owned Los Olivos 16C for 18 months now having owned (and still owning) Los Olivos 3P for over 6 years and have turned both into modern apartments, putting in a new kitchen and completely revamping the living/dining areas in 16C and putting in a new kitchen, dining chairs,bedding, curtains and a new ensuite bathroom in Jan 14 in 3P. Our house in Monte Claro down the road from Los Olivos -on four stories with 5 bedrooms and 3 sun decks -gives lots of outdoor space.It has marble floors throughout - super luxurious.The pool in MC is for the 15 residents and you can watch the children from the terrace! We holiday here twice a year and extended family stay in both apartments .We love the food, facilities,space and tranquility.
Ms Jane MacDonald purchased this Apartment in 2008
Why Ms Jane MacDonald chose Cartagena
It is so easy to get to from Murcia airport -just 20 mins by car with the car hire just outside the airport it couldn't be easier. There are cheap flights from Gatwick and many other local airports. We usually fly Ryan Air. The apartment is spacious and has everything you need as a family. Washing machine and tumble dryer essential! With a flat screen TV and over 150 DVD's that we have accumulated there there is plenty inside to entertain the children on a quiet afternoon/night in but with so many restaurants/cafes and bars a short beautiful walk away you are spoiled for choice. Favourite part of the day is waking up and having coffee on the lower sun deck. What a view. We never want to come home. The private beach , La Cala, is heavenly and we love snorkelling there.
What makes this Apartment unique
Wifi is great and the unique location in La Manga' Los Olivos offers amazing views and you are 1 minute away each side to the 3 pools so its safe for the children to make their own way there. The sun decks offer great relaxation and privacy when you dont want to go anywhere! In 3P the extra storie offers great through winds at the hottest part of the day.

Feel like at home
Beautiful, big an tasteful equiped Penthouse with everything you need. Nice front- and backterrasse and even balcony with spectacular views. 2 big bathroom - one for me and my wife and one the the teenagers ...
In walking distance to tennis and golfcourts. Everything you need for a good and convinient stay.
Just spent 10 nights in this beautiful apartment. Booking process was very easy and great communication from the owner, including a welcome check email on the day of arrival thanks to the complimentary wifi(which worked for vast majority of our 10 days- much better than any previous limited service we have experienced abroad)
Great location, half way between bellaluz square up the hill, and the main commercial centre downhill, both with good selection of bars and eateries. The air conditioning was great and definitely needed as it was 30degrees plus every day. The finishes in all bedrooms, bathrooms and the kitchen were lovely and the apartment did feel very loved as opposed to just a furnished rental. The beds were also extremely comfy which is the usual focus of our complaints. The patio furniture on the main terrace was lovely rattan, sitting 8 and 4 x sun loungers, gas BBQ (with gas supplied)and the upper terrace again was fully furnished with a table 6 chairs and 4 x sun loungers. There was only 4 in our party , 1 x couple and 2 x teenage girls, so we had lots of space. There was every imaginable device in the kitchen, and ample crockery. Washer, dishwasher and tumbler dryer. Plenty of hangers in the wardrobes, and storage. Pool towels and bath towels provided also.
It is a 30sec walk to both outdoor pools or the indoor one. I cannot complain about anything, and I would highly recommend this apartment and hope to return again. The only thing to be mindful of is the apartment is on a hill and the access can be a little steep- not a problem for fit and able, but may not suit everyone. Overall a fabulous property!

La Manga has its own private beach La Cala, which is a 5 minute drive from the apartment. It is breathtakingly beautiful. Alternatively the Mediterranean and Mar Menor Sea are perfect for all watersports (sailing, windsurfing, water skiing and more ). These are all a 15 minute or so drive away. There are black sand and white sand beaches nearby. We recommend Playa Calblanque-10 mins drive away.
Approx 20 mins away is the nearest airport Murcia (San Javier). Alicante is approx 1 hour by car.
La Manga has all the facilities and amenities that you need for a perfect holiday. However if you are here for a longer stay or simply like exploring there are places of interest to visit. Los Belones is 8 mins away in the car with its restaurants. Other places of interest are nearby Cartegena, which is 20 kms away, with its 2200 years of history, ruins and Roman temple-also has a shopping mall. Murcia, the regional capital with its cathedral, bars and shopping is 45 mins away.
Two super supermarkets are within a few minutes walk of the apartment. Nearby restaurants include La Bodega-a typical Spanish bodega with local wines and excellent Tapas; Uncle Sams- all American style; Si restaurant and bar offers all night childrens entertainment whilst you eat-bouncy castle/football/juggling etc. Andale- Mexican; Asia-Asian cuisine ; La Cala is nestled on a rocky outcrop over the private beach and has the finest fish and seafood. Luigis is the finest Italian with speciality fish, pasta and pizzas.
All are family friendly and most a short stroll away.
There are cafes nearby and many shops. The nearby Bellaluz square has pubs , boutiques, pharmacy, bars and central plaza.
