About Colleen Badger

We live in Upminster, Essex in the U.K & have been visiting Spain since 2002 when we decided the Murcia area was defintely the area we wanted to spend all our free time! We have a grown up family who also love to visit the region & make the most of all the water sports activities, as ofen as possible.

Colleen Badger purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Colleen Badger chose Cartagena & Mar Menor

We chose our apartment at La Torre because it is a large airy apartment with a lovely open feel to it. The views over the pools and gardens are very relaxing yet it is also nice to know that the amenities of the town centre and shops are very close by, within a few minutes walk. There is lots to explore in the region of the Mar Menor and we still haven't manged to visit all the beaches or restaurants or activity options that can be found locally.

What makes this apartment unique

In the apartment we loved the large patio doors that open out onto the balcony and give the lounge area lots of light & make the apartment feel bigger than others we considered. The electric shutters also enable the apartment to be easilly secured so we felt it was ideal. The balcony is also very private but with good views and the pools below make a lovely back-drop. We have tried to provide all of the equipment for our guests that we ourselves would expect to find in a holiday home and we particularly try to cater for guests with families as La Torre is a secure and friendly environment.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Perfect in every way. When we arrived we were greeted by the keyholders,and after a long journey we were so grateful for the no hassle,friendly and quick wizz around the apartment then peace. The whole site is gorgeous and the apartment is aesthetically pleasing as well as very comfy,with everything supplied-even a fab cheese grater. When we left I needed to go back as I mislaid my 'phone(FURIOUS husband) butAnette was very kind and let me back in without delay or complaint that she had to make a special journey.We have absolutely no difficulty in recommending this as an ideal holiday destination for adults and children alike,so thank you Coleen for letting us use your lovely Spanish home whist we look for one of our own.

Superb Holiday

  • 5 of 5

This is our second year at the apartment and once again we had a fantastic holiday. We are a family of 4 with children aged 12 and 9. The apartment is really spacious and very well appointed with a great balcony where you can sit and watch the world go by. The pools outside are amazing and generally not busy at all as there are two of them. We would highly recommend this apartment and the area. Colleen and the key holder Claire are so helpful and are always on hand to offer help/advice. The complex itself is limited in terms of bars and restaurants but close by in the Roldan area there are lots of restaurants and bars to choose from. If you want traditional Spanish then go to Espigares or Valle-De-Sol, both have a great menu of the day and really superb tapas. We have already booked again for next year!

A very well equipped apartment, overlooking pool

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was lovely, well equipped and very clean. Located overlooking one of the pools, set within very well maintained garden area.

The resort itself was very nice with good clubhouse atmosphere in the evenings. Lovely food and good entertainment.

I would recommend it and would love to visit again. Contact with the owner Colleen was excellent and the welcome and service from Claire, management company was very well appreciated. I will be looking forward to booking again. Thank you!

Nice and cosy apartment

  • 4 of 5

Nice apartment with bare necessities. No luxury, but it had basically what we needed and the rent was very reasonable. The shady and comfortable size terrace was fabulous for eating breakfast while listening to a chorus of birds or for drinking sangria after a hot day at the beach. The pool area is as nice as it looks in the picture and was well tended to. We had a little trouble with the air-con that started leaking one evening, but after contacting Kings Home Service it was soon fixed (leaves were apparently clogging the pipes). We will not hesitate to book this place again or to recommend it to friends and family.

Best regards Albert and Annette Ramos

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to leave your review. We are very pleased you enjoyed your stay at our apartment. We do endeavour to provide all that our guests require for a comfortable & homely holiday within this price range. We do have a great team working with us at La Torre & when you notified the housekeepers of the aircon leak we were happy to ensure our gas fitter rectified the situation within 24 hours, as is our policy. We'd love to welcome you or family/friends back to the apartment in future Best regards Colleen (owner)

Great apartment

  • 5 of 5

We spent one week at the apartment, and we are very satisfied. It was well equiped, dident miss a thing. The balcony is always in the shadow, which was great after å long day in the sun. The apartment was clean and well maintained, and was located in a short distance from supermarket and restaurants. Special thanks to Darryl ( housekeeper) who gave us the best service. The resort was very nice, clean and pretty. Good restaurants and supermarket. We highly recommend this apartment, and we would very much like to visit again.

Owner's Response: So pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us & also that you enjoyed the marvellous weather of Murcia (approximately 300 days of sunshine a year!). We provide portable sun loungers so that our guests can enjoy the full sunshine by the pools then later relax in the shade of our cooling balcony. We chose the apartment because of its great location within the resort & our housekeeper Darryl always gives good service to our guests. We'd love to welcome you or your family & friends back again! Thank you for taking the time to share your great holiday experiences - Colleen (owner)

wonderful and restful holidays

  • 5 of 5

We are a French family with 3 children(8,10,13) and Everybody in the family had a very good time at Colleen's appartment. First I would like to thank Colleen who is a very kind and available person.

The apartment is really cosy and comfortable,clean and modern. The situation is perfect in a wonderful garden with two swimming pools. We had a large balcony with view of the swimming pool and it was a pleasure to eat everyday on this balcony.

Our car was parked in the garage and we really liked having our car in a safe place which was very cool because it was very hot.

The supermarket in the complex is nice but we enjoyed going to the commercial centre in San Javier : Dos Mares. (15 minutes by car)

The keyholder , Darril is a very kind person who is very available. We forgot our keys inside the appartment and Darril came 10 minutes later to open the door.

To conclude I would like to say it's an ideal place for a family with children because the place is very safe and people around are very nice.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words Carole & I'm so pleased that the apartment was ideally located for your family. As we are so close to all the amenities at La Torre (within a few minutes walk) we do feel that for families and golfers alike we are perfectly situated. Although the large onsite supermarket caters well for our guests, Dos Mares is a great place to shop for all the extras such as clothes & gifts & well worth a visit when enjoying the region. I hope to be able to welcome you again in the future! Colleen
