Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday apartment in La Manga


Spacious and Stunning – Luxury 3 bedroom / 2 bathroom apartment. - FRONT LINE TO THE BEACH - with breath-taking views overlooking the crystal clear waters of the Mediterranean.

Set on the unique and beautiful La Manga Strip (Spain's best kept Secret!) and considered to occupy one of the most spectacular and prestigious positions on the whole of La Manga Strip.

Our Luxury beach side upper floor apartment is ideally suited for families and couples alike who enjoy unadulterated luxury beach side holidays at reasonable rates.

You can swim in the warm waters of the Mediterranean directly in front of the apartment (perfect for an early morning swim before breakfast!) Or you can swim in the Mar Menor to the rear, which due to it’s shallow warm waters make this an ideal environment for young children who want to swim or learn to swim in the sea , alternatively there is the private pool area which are all conveniently located right on the doorstep of the apartment.

There are Water sports of all kinds, Jet Skiing, Sailing, Fishing and Diving within easy reach.

For the golfing enthusiasts, there are numerous Championship Golf courses within a short drive, OR, you can just sit back on the balcony, relax and watch the world go by (Glass of wine in hand!) whist taking in the most beautiful uninterrupted views out to sea. The choice is yours!

Furnished to a high standard together with air conditioning and underfloor heating make this an ideal all year round escape.

From the Lounge, main bedroom and kitchen, we overlook miles of uninterrupted stunningly beautiful white sandy beaches, out across the calming waters of the Mediterranean taking in the Isle of Grosa and the yachting channel to and from the Marina.

Fantastic location! - Great holiday!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second trip to Spain but the first to La Manga, and from the moment we arrived at Playa Principe we all fell in love with this place!

Best location on the whole La Manga Strip. Walking distance to the Thomas Maestre Marina, restaurants, shops, cafes (Internet Cafe), banks.

The view from the balcony and every window in the apartment is fantastic- white sandy beach and blue sea. Sitting on the balcony at night was so relaxing, sipping a glass of good Spanish wine, listening to the sound of waves and watching the lights along the coast.!! Wow!!!

Highlights of our holiday were trips to historic city of Cartagena and ferry trips across Mar Menor to Santiago de Ribera to the weekly street Market. The ferry leaves from the marina every 2 hours and costs 4 euros/person. The bus to Cartagena has its first stop on the Strip and cost around 3 euros.

The building and the apartment are beautiful - spotlessly clean and only three apartments on the floor !!! Remember to wipe your feet when coming back from the beach!!!!

The housekeepers - wonderful couple! Very helpful and attentive, going out of their way to please!!!

The owners deserve the biggest applause - John always returned my emails in a timely manner and even set up a Paypal account for fast and secure payments.

Thank You John and Gill for a wonderful memories!!!

It was worth it to fly across Atlantic Ocean (7 hrs) to spend two weeks in your 5 star Luxury apartment in La Manga.!!!!

Hope to return there soon!

For Canadian travelers: very easy connection from Toronto to London Gatwick, with the same day Easyjet flight to Murcia- San Javier.

Highly recommended to anyone who appreciates beauty, luxury and serenity!!!!

Beautiful apartment amazing setting

  • 5 of 5

We had the most wonderful stay here myself, mum & two teens. Plenty of room so didn't feel we were on top of each other.

The view is fantastic the pictures don't do it justice, loved my first cup of coffee on terrace looming out to sea.

Such a peaceful place to stay, no rowdy neigbours, loud music, made our stay all the more relaxing.

We spent every day on the beach, red hot but lovely breeze so never felt too sticky.

All correspondence with john (owner) was efficient& pleasant, made booking so easy.

We ate most evenings at the harbour & timed it so we could watch the sun set.

We had a relaxing, beautiful, unforgettable stay & will hopefully be returning next year!

Highly reccommend for family holiday :)

Thank you for a wonderful stay

Simply Stunning

  • 5 of 5

We’ve just returned from this lovely apartment with the most spectacular views of the Mediterranean. We had the beach almost to ourselves most days, just wonderful for peaceful walks and lying on the sandy beach soaking up the sun and listening to the sound of waves lapping the beach.

The apartment was well presented; spacious, comfortable and very clean. The couple who look after the property were very helpful and friendly.

We would really recommend this apartment and we will certainly be returning to La Manga in future.

Stunning location!!

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful position this apartment is in, sitting on the balcony watching the sun come up and sea for as far as the eye can see, you could be in the carribean, it is that fabulous and a stones throw to the beach. Has everything you would need for a lovely holiday good kitchen facilities and a bath which is unusual for Spanish apartments as most have showers. Good selection of english tv channels. Good bars down at the marina to watch the sun come down.John has been a pleasure to rent an apartment from, his service has been exceptional all the way through. Loved our stay here and would definately return.

A truly magnificent place for families and couples alike, who enjoy unadulterated laid-back luxury beachside holidays .

The apartment is located within 5 minutes walking distance of the very Cosmopolitan Tomas Maestre Marina with its vast array of high class restaurants, bars, shops, supermarkets, banks etc.

If beach walking is your interest then you can walk for hours on the beautiful beaches from just outside of the apartment.

If sightseeing and shopping is your thing, the beautiful historic Port and Town of Cartagena and the bustling capital city of Murcia are well worth a visit.

Within a short drive is the world famous La Manga Golf Club Resort, where many of the World’s International football teams can often be seen using the 5 star sporting facilities.

If traditional Spain interests you, at the end of the strip there is Cablo de Palos a small fishing village, with its many excellent waterside fish restaurants.

Santiago de la Ribera is another must visit, which can be reached by a leisurely ferry service, operating from the Marina. Experience Spanish culture and cuisine at its very best.

Our holiday home is surrounded by white sandy beaches and clear waters of the Mediterranean and Mar Menor Seas, situated on the unique and beautiful La Manga Strip, reputed to have the best average all year round climate in Spain, boasting an average of 320 days of Sunshine per year!)

The region is blessed by the mild Mediterranean climate, temperatures range between 15 - 22C in winter. Summer temperatures vary between 30 - 40C. The average annual temperature is 18C.

La Manga Strip has a unique position in Europe, between two Seas, the Mediterranean Sea and the crystal clear waters of the Mar Menor.

This part of Spain is famous for its salt lakes which has a major knock on effect on humidity levels, and as a result the air is much dryer than in other parts of Spain & Europe. The low humidity levels coupled with a mild climate, means the World Health Organisation have rated this part of Spain one of the healthiest climates in the world.

At certain times of the year, Flamingos can often be seen at both ends of the strip, feeding in the salt lakes.

The La Manga Del Mar Menor / La Manga Strip area.

We are located directly on the beach at the northern end of the La Manga Strip close to the Marina.

From here you can hire a boat, go scuba diving, fishing etc. There is also a ferry which sails to Santiago de la Ribera every 2 hours and a tour boat which sails into the Med and around the islands in the Mar Menor.

The Marina itself offers a wealth of international restaurants including French, Asian, Italian, Norwegian, Greek, Mexican as well as traditional Spanish restaurant.

The long promenades and boulevards make this an ideal location for the elderly or disabled as well as the most enthusiastic sports enthusiasts. In fact La Manga has something to offer everyone.

During the summer, the beaches offer a wide variety of water-sports, sailing, powerboat trips and scuba diving.

For golfing enthusiasts, we are approximately 20/25 minutes from the world famous La Manga Golf Club and many other renowned Golf Clubs in the area.

For beach lovers. Paradise found! The beaches in La Manga are just beautiful, the Mediterranean beaches and the Mar Menor beaches are perfect for family holidays.

Everything is within walking distance, plus there is also a good bus service operating up and down the strip.

There are also many traditional Street Markets used by the locals and tourists alike, whereby they are great for stocking up on really good quality fruit and veg at really low prices.
