About Ann Page
Chris and I live in Shropshire and have 2 sons, one married, and two lovely granddaughters born in 2010 and 2013. We are both still working but get across to Spain whenever we can.
Ann Page purchased this Apartment in 2006
Why Ann Page chose San Javier
As soon as we saw where the apartment was being built, we decided that we had to have it for the views of the water and boats, and for the quiet and peaceful complex with a lovely pool. We bought off-plan in 2003 and have funished it for our own comfort throughout the year. Once you cross over the bridge to our part of the La Manga strip it is a different world, much quieter. The apartment is at the km 14 marker (as measured from the start of the La Manga Strip), with two or three restaurants/cafes within a short walk, depending on the time of year. A wide range of food, fresh fish and meat, plus fresh bread and pastries, is available at the supermarket just a couple of minutes' walk away. A bakery is open across the road from the week before Easter to September, where there is also a year-round pharmacy. A 20 minute walk (or short drive) takes you to a wide selection of restaurants and bars at the Marina, where there is also a Saturday market and a larger supermarket and other shops, with ferry services and bike hire. A local bus runs regularly. The local beaches are quiet with a beach cafe, and toilets and beach guard on the Mediterranean beach in high season. A car is not essential, but recommended for travelling to other beaches in the area which offer a wide range of water activities for all ages, plus commercial outlets, shops, and night-life.
What makes this Apartment unique
We love waking up in the morning and seeing the boats pass by under our balcony on their way to and from the Mediterranean, and walking along the promenade to the lighthouse - a regular morning walk for us. And then stopping off at the Panaderia (local baker, open Easter to September) or the local cafe for a coffee. It is so peaceful and relaxing that we have to drag ourselves away to return to the UK! The choice of restaurants in the Marina is amazing. And the local supermarkets stock everything you could need.

Great location, stunning views and would stay here again
The apartment was great and enough space for 4 adults. The added bonus of having two separate bathrooms. The property was a little tired in places but great value for money. The owners were extremely helpful and so was the property manager who met us with the keys. The apartment is only a short walk from the beach and has a Spar supermarket close by. The communal pool was also lovely if you fancied a change from the beach. We would stay here again if we ever come back to La Manga.
Thank you so much for your review. And it would be lovely to welcome you back.
Lovely Apartment! Great Location!
I stayed at the apartment for two weeks in August 2018. It's a lovely apartment, with everything you could want or need for a great holiday. The owners handbook with local information was very useful. Great to have a spar supermarket very close by and also the local artisan bakery - very popular with the kids. Proximity to both the Med and Mar Menor made life easy. There's a paved walkway along the beach - good for a long run and a dip in the Med before breakfast. Also lots of activities to do on the Mar Memor including let skiing and kayaking all close by. The communal pool was sizeable and never too busy. Altogether a thoroughly enjoyable holiday. The very cheap busses that sn't up and down the strip made it easy to get about, combined with the pickup arranged with Ann meant we didn't need a car. Thanks Ann!
Nice & cozy place
A pretty well divided apartment, equipped with everything necessary. AC units in all rooms, a large balcony from which you can see the marina, a relaxing image. Easy to keep in touch with the owner (Mrs. Ann Page) and the contact person (Mr. John Phillips). A Spar supermarket strategically placed at the end of the street. Easy to get to the beaches of the Mediterranean and the Mar Menor. The sea and beaches - clean. The whole area of La Manga is very exciting, not very crowded, but alive. The residential complex Los Miradores del Puerto is located in an area separated from the rest of La Manga by a opening bridge, so you have to pay attention to the operating schedule of the bridge! All in all, we had a very nice time in La Manga. We definitely recommend!
Thank you so much for taking the trouble to send us a review - it was so lovely to read, and I hope we can welcome you back again.
Winter Fortnight at Mar Menor
A pleasant little apartment in an agreeable location with good facilities in the apatment - UK TV channels, sunny south westerly aspect for the sheltered balcony and generally relaible wifi (only one 4-5 hour outage by the local internet provider) and acceptable download speeds. The underfloor heating was excellent (essential even!) and made for a very comfortable stay. Good local walks and bars, restaurants and 2 well-stocked supermarkets in walking distance. Very acceptable for an out of season stay. We used the cafes but not the restaurants as we preferred to cook in the apartment.
A car is really essential (we had driven fromthe UK and had 3 weeks in Denia before this stay) and while in La Manga we visited Cartagena twice and Cabo de Palos more often - great fish restauatants and cafes with food cooked to order. It is the liveliest place on the strip and looks like the expat HQ with the large Mercadona supermarket and Aldis (open on Sundays).
If you like a quiet hoiday, without neigbours, and with sun compensating for the low temperatures this is a good option. The activity from the marina was sufficient to provide points of interest and the Spanish Air Force provided formation flying displays most days. There is obvious heritage in Cartagena and less obviously in the local lighthouses which were both worth visiting. Driving was interesting and the government tourist staff variable in their helpfulness.
Ann Page, in the UK and John P in La Manga were readily contactable and available but everthing went smoothly and although we traded e mails and texts for administrative things we
did not need to ask for any help as the website and written apartment guide/instructions covered everything satisfactorily.
All in all a pleasant holiday with good memories.
Thank you so much for your comments, which are much appreciated.
The Most Amazing Holiday
We've just come back from staying here for 9 nights and it was amazing. We have 2 young boys so wanted somewhere we could come back in an evening and put them to bed and enjoy dinner on the balcony.
The complex is easy to find and is quiet too, the pools were clean if anything the big pool was a little too deep for my 6-year-old, he can swim but the depth threw him off, the toddler pool was fun. Most days we spent down at the beach, which is 5 minutes away.
The apartment is impeccably clean and the air conditioning works a treat, we did find we didn't use it too much, as there was a nice breeze that comes down the canal. The apartment is equipped with everything you can think of, loads of plates and cups and so handy having a dishwasher and washing machine. Also, the wifi was a better service than we get at home!
The shutters are great, they really block out the sun and in doing so the boys slept in every day.
The view is the most wonderful thing about the apartment, we sat outside for breakfast every day and some evening meals just watching the boats coming in and seeing the sun set was perfect.
The supermarket is close by but closes over lunch for a few hours and on Sunday, which caught us out (as we didn't hire a car).
The bridge broke and stopped opening whilst we were there so didn't have to time trips across it. There are some great places to eat close by Mar & Mar, do a children's menu and there's a great choice of ice cream and there are some lovely places on the Marina which is 20 minutes walk away. There were some very good tapas lunch menus available and everyone is so welcoming of children and made a fuss of them.
We did have a few days of rain and watched the most amazing storm from the comfort of the bed one evening (as it was too wild to sit on the balcony).
I couldn't recommend this place enough for a family of 4, we've come back total relaxed and already planning our trip back!
Thank you so much for your comments, which are much appreciated.
Lovely apartment, well planned layout and spacious. It has been well maintained by the owner .
Had a lovely relaxing holiday here. Used the local buses to explore the strip. Loved the walk to the marina with its lovely bars and restaurants. Wouldn't definitely holiday here again
