About Janet Trafford

We live near Bournemouth for about 8months of the year and enjoy coming out to Spain during the winter to avoid the cold weather in the UK.

Janet Trafford purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Janet Trafford chose San Cayetano

We discovered the Costa Calida when my husband Paul's sister moved with her husband and youngest daughter to live in this area in 2002. It is a lovely part of Spain as although it has plenty of facilities it is not too commercialised and still quite Spanish although we are made to feel very welcome by the Spanish residents.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Lovely, comfortable ground floor apartment on the edge of an authentic Spanish Village



Left on Aug 21, 2017 for a stay in Aug 2017

Modern, well kept apartment within a small complex on the edge of an authentic Spanish rural village. With easy access from both Alicante and San Javier airports this apartment has all the facilities you need for a family holiday. Fully equipped kitchen, comfortable lounge area with satellite TV and air conditioning, bathroom with good shower. There is an lovely covered outside terrace and even a little garden with sunbeds. There is a good housekeeping service who are very friendly and approachable should you need any assistance with the property. A little stroll takes you to the swimming pool and tennis courts area. The local village Spar stocks familiar items and the village bakery is a haven for artisan bread and pastries. . With little or no noise from surrounding apartments overall a very relaxing and enjoyable holiday. Will be visiting again!

Car: recommended

In a tranquil area but near to all facilities. Within 5-10 minutes drive you can get to Murcia airport, numerous beaches, restaurants, shops and 20 golf courses. The nearest cities are Cartagena which is 20 minutes drive & Murcia which is 30 minutes drive.

The Mar Menor which is a big lagoon cut off from the Mediterranean is 10 minutes drive. It is shallow for quite a way out with very gentle waves so it is safe for children. The water temperature in the summer can reach 30 degrees. The beach area stretches for 7 kilometres & has been given 4 EC blue flags.

The area is partly protected land so it is not too built up. There are quiet areas for walkers as well as commercial shopping centres nearby. There is also Terra Natura within 30 minutes drive which is an animal park where some of the profits go to animal protection. It also has a water park attached to it

You can fly to Murcia with various airlines including Monarch, Easyjet, Ryanair & Jet2. Alternatively Alicante airport is one hours drive from us.

Car hire rates start at £60 a week off peak.

Golf: Although we are not on a golf course we have about 20 courses within 5-20 minutes drive. We are within 10 minutes drive of Polaris Worlds 'La Torre' golf course and Roda Resorts PGA designed course. A bit further afield within 20 minutes drive are La Manga Club and Villamartin.

Highly Recommend This Property

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a quiet location but not too far from major city's then this is the property for you. It is located in a small village but has all that you require, ie shops, hairdressers, bakery and several pubs. We would recommend that you hire a car to get about though.

The property is of excellent standard and as stated is like a home from home. No need to take travel iron's, hairdryer etc as this is all provided. This is the first time we have ever booked a holiday let and I cannot fault the owner Jan in any way. She had given us so much information regarding the area and the booking was so simple and hassle free. The property was very clean and well maintained and Jaqui the neighbour is very friendly and helpful.

During our stay we visited some local towns & villages and even found an Iceland Frozen Foods in San Javier which is useful for people that don't want to try the local food. I found driving around so easy as the roads are well sign posted and if I can't get lost then no one can. You are only driving distance from Murcia 20mins, Alicante 35-40mins, and Benidorm is just a bit further a field. I will definatley being returning and would highly recommend this property to friends and family. Next time I go I will be wanting to fenture out further maybe to Valencia or Barcelona. Thank you to the owners Jan & Paul & to Jaqui the neighbour for all you help and making us have such an enjoyable and relaxing holiday.

Had a great holiday and didn't have any problems however the apartment and village are a bit mixed

  • 3 of 5

Overall it was great for the week but the village location may not be suit everyone. The coastal area has a lot to offer and the weather was great. The village was quiet and rural and a bit unfinished with a couple of friendly bars and a few chatty Brits. The apartment is fairly basic but comfortable and has all you need. The outside of the apartment was dusty and needed washing down. The local pool which cost 55Euros for the week for two was good and we enjoyed swimming there. Driving in the area was very easy and all the beaches in October had great parking and easy access. The beach areas about 15 mins away are all great - lots of sand and nice promenades to walk and eat.

location sympa

  • 3 of 5

Beau logement pas cher en location mais un peu loin de tout. C'est bien pour être au calme et prendre du repos. Sympa la bouteille de bienvenue offerte à l'arrivée. Endroit très sécurisé avec des barreaux partout, un peu trop car on se croit dans une prison ! Pour le point négatif, Ménage pas terrible, il y avait plein de grosses poussières dans les placards et vaisselle pas très nette.

First Holiday Abroad

  • 5 of 5

Had a fantastic time, apartment was very clean & well equipped. Lovely quiet area. We hired a car(which we would definitely recommend) and travelled around every day, best place we went to was Murcia. We are definitely hoping to go back again & would recommend staying there to anyone.

A short break

  • 4 of 5

We left the UK with freezing weather to arrive in Spain (Murcia) with temperatures around 15°C/59°F

The options available when arriving are to hire a car at the airport, where there are plenty of opportunities, if you intend travelling around the surrounding area. Alternatively you can arrange with the neighbour of the property a collection and return trip to and from the airport which is good if you do not intend travelling anywhere and a very reasonable price. The neighbour also operates a taxi like facility where she will take you to and from the local supermarket during the day and if required the local restaurants at night. This is very useful if all you require is peace and quiet and are not interested in driving anywhere, however should you opt to hire a car then parking is not an issue as the property has parking bays opposite.

The facilities in the property are clean and well laid out and on arrival a guest pack was available. The two bedrooms allow for either two couples or a family with two children. The bathroom and kitchen are both well apportioned and should you feel up to it a washing machine is in the conservatory area complete with washing line. The lounge/diner is well apportioned with seating for four at the breakfast/dinner table and the lounge has seating with television, DVD player and radio.

The front patio has a table and four chairs which is ideal for eating breakfast at and also evening meals if required and when the weather is warm enough as it is shaded from the sun. The patio is not overlooked and not subjected to people stopping and staring.

The swimming pool and club room complex was under construction and is expected to be complete by the summer although this is not an issue as there is the use of pool nearby if required. When the residents' pool and clubhouse becomes available this will make it so much easier and it is expected that food will be available.

Around the habitation there are two pubs which also serve very good food. A small village type community which has a bank with ATM, hairdresser, two small supermarkets and a market once a week. All in all you could stay here and not need to go anywhere.

Overall the property is very good and allows the hirer the opportunity to do what they want and we would have no problem in going back again.
