House in Los Alcazares, Murcia, Spain - Peaceful Location, 10 Minutes Walk To The Beach, Main Square And Array Of Shops And Restaurants
About Kevin Rowe
I live in England with my wife, children and 2 cats. We both work but love to spend holidays in the sun.
Kevin Rowe purchased this House in 2009
Why Kevin Rowe chose San Javier
We love Los Alcazares because of the year round sunshine. There are some beautiful beaches and the square boasts a great range of bars and restaurants and being a keen golfer, the Roda golf course is ideally situated just down the road from the house. The area is easily accessible via Murcia International Airport nearby.
What makes this House unique
The property is within easy walking distance of the fabulous Mar Menor with it's fabulous beach, and the main square with lots of great bars and restaurants (there is also a great Tapas bar just round the corner from the house). For those who enjoy a more active holiday, you can take advantage of discounted rates at the nearby Roda golf course (one of several courses nearby) or hire bikes locally. To explore the surrounding area, there is a great local bus service or car hire available locally.

The property is lovely but could do with a few things like shelves in bathrooms and bedrooms
Great house but needs a few things. The dining table only seats 6 but the property is for 8. Needs more shelving as there is little space upstairs for your toiletries etc. Front door is quite tricky and there is only 1 sun lounger for the pool which was a bit disappointing as there were 7 of us. We would have hoped for a dishwasher also. Despite these little things the place is lovely the area is great and we had a fantastic stay. Maria is amazing and was of great assistance to us
Thanks for your review. We will take on board your comments about shelving and look to do something on this. We don't advertise either a dishwasher or sun loungers as we do not provide these.
Great house in a good location
We had an great week staying in this well equipped, clean house which is in a good location within easy walking distance to the plaza and beach. The pool is great, a good size and close to the house, we spent a lot of time there. We loved the area and had a fabulous time.
Lads 'golfing' weekend
Stayed at Kev's place 14 - 17th June, 8 blokes, 2nd time around.
As before enough room for all, 10 min walk to Roda golf course and 15 min walk to the main town square so excellent location.
Everything you need is there so can't complain plus Kev and Maria the apartment Manager are very friendly and easy to deal with.
Thanks for the review Steve. Glad you enjoyed your stay again. Hope the golf went well.
Family holiday half term fun
We were a party of 2 families, 4 adults and 4 children have had a fantastic time at this property. It is conveniently located for all amenities and although a car would give you more scope to explore we rented bikes from nearby Costa Bici and had a lot of fun riding these to the old town and also Santiago de Ribera. We had a minor issue with the door resolved very quickly and efficiently by Housekeeper Maria and her husband Mark. This really is a great property for a family holiday and the communal pool which we had essentially to ourselves is the biggest communal property pool I have ever seen with a lovely sunbathing area with fixed wooden parasols. Supermarkets are very close by so kept the fridge well stocked with liquid refreshments !! We have been coming to Los Alcazares for 11 years and this is up there with best properties we have stayed in and at a very reasonable cost. Kev the owner has been great with communication and booking. Highly recommended and look forward to our next stay !!! Many thanks !!!!

Special interest holidays:
The surrounding area is fairly flat and ideal for cycling. There are a number of places where bikes can be hired locally. At the beach, there is a wide range of water-sports such as windsurfing, pedaloes, and boat sailing available.
The nearest beach is Los Narajos which is 1.2km away (10 min walk). The beach is on the Mar Menor (smaller sea) which is non tidal and very safe for children. The beach is fine white sand and is very clean.
The nearest airport is Murcia / San Javier which is just 5km away (close enough to use a taxi - far enough away to not be a noise problem). There are cheap flights from the UK with both Easyjet and Ryanair among others. Car hire is recommended if you intend to explore the surrounding areas.
The city of Cartagena is a 20 minute drive away. Here you will find a Roman Amphitheatre, castle, museums and historic sight seeing. There are also a variety of shops, or you can enjoy an open top bus which will take you on a tour of the city and a boat which will take you out and around the port area. For those not wishing to drive, you can catch a local bus outside the supermarket.
There are a number of local supermarkets, shops and restaurants within easy walking distance. There is also a cashpoint (Barclays) just round the corner.
