Lovely, Bright and spacious 2 bedroomed property in a well maintained complex with 2 great swimming pools. Just over 5 minutes walk from the large, sandy Blue Flag beaches of Playa de Las Marinas.
The property comprises 2 areas of outside space. A ground floor front patio of approximately 6m x 1.5m which gets the sun in the afternoon plus a wonderful 30 sq m roof top solarium with spectacular mountain views.
The property itself is fully equipped with everything you could possibly want whilst on holiday and also boasts full air conditioning.
The fitted open plan kitchen is complete with electric hob, fridge freezer, kettle, microwave, toaster and breakfast bar. In addition you will find a Patio table and Chairs set for those that like Al Fresco dining.
All linen, towels, cutlery and crockery are also provided.
Currently arranged as 2 x double beds and 1 x single bed but with a spare single mattress so could sleep 6 at a push seven if you count the really comfortable sofa.
Anyway, whats the area like. In the immediate location you are Walking distance to a multitude of bars, restaurants, shops and a Spa / Sports centre.
There are Four great golf courses nearby including the world famous Desert Springs Golf Course and in my humble opinion the very under rated Valle Del Este.
Just a 10 to 15 minute stroll brings you to the vibrant but quaint fishing village of Garrucha, famous for its Giant Red Prawns.
Only a short drive or bus ride away you will find the Aquavera water park, Go Karting and a swanky beach club in Puerto Rey. Going north you will find another smaller fishing village of Villaricos and continue a little further to the beautiful San Juan De Los Torreos.
To the South and much much nearer though is the livelier resort of Mojacar Playa only about 5 - 10 minutes by car or bus and it would be a crime to visit Mojacar and then NOT to visit Mojacar Pueblo.
This quaint iconic whitewashed mountain village is considered to be one of the top 10 villages of its kind in the whole of Spain. Not surprising when you consider It has a peaceful ambience with stunning views and some fantastic restaurants where you can easily lose yourself in all that is good about Spain.
The National Park of Cabo De Gato is less than an hours drive away as is the Capital city Almeria and the livelier resorts of Almerimar and Roquettas Del Mar.
The area itself in this part of Spain is rich in history and there is plenty to do and see as a tourist if that’s what you want but equally you can chill out and do nothing more than enjoy the Fine weather that has Andalucian region has in abundance.
So whether it’s relaxing in the sun with a glass of your favourite tipple whilst reading, listening to music maybe or Simply having a snooze ( sorry siesta ) this property allows that.
Equally however if you are an energetic type there is plenty to do and see and whilst a car is handy to have you definitely do not need one. For those that do prefer a car theres plenty of parking spaces on the 3 roads which surround the complex.
Enjoy Traditional vibrant Spanish markets of which there are plenty with one on everyday somewhere nearby and the author particularly likes Villaricos (sunday), Turre or the gigantic Garrucha Friday market which occupies the entire town it seems.
Foodies will not be disappointed as the owner of this property carried out a thorough investigation and due diligence which in other words means they holidayed here several times trying out the local cuisine relentlessly as they did so.
So whether it’s Michelin Star posh eats or laid back chiringuitos there is plenty of that delicious Andalucian food on offer not to mention some amazing Italian, Argentinian and Asian eateries to Boot.
During the summer months a churreria sets up a mobile stall just outside the complex so you don’t have far to get to get your hands on those delicious ( if slightly unhealthy ) churros and if that wasn’t enough All year round a kiosk opens ( which is part of the mini supermarket ) run by a couple of old girls that knock up the most amazing take away food for next to nothing. If you can’t be bothered to cook but don’t want the expense of eating out then this is definitely for you.
Whilst writing I must recommend the full size Tortilla or the spicy chicken wings and on Sundays only they do the full size spit roast chicken.
So far we haven’t found anything not to like about this property, the people we’ve met or the area and are actually contemplating buying another one.
We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
