Town House, Desert Springs,2 bed, 2 bath

Overview

This luxurious end of terrace townhouse is furnished to a high standard and equipped with modern appliances. The bright and airy living/dining room contains a comfortable sofa and easy chairs together with a dining table and chairs. The terrace has patio furniture offering alfresco dining.
The fully fitted kitchen has an oven, hob, microwave, fridge freezer, washing machine, coffee machine, toaster and kettle. There is ample cutlery, crockery and drinkware including acrylic for use by the pool.
The two bedrooms, each sleeping two people, have fitted wardrobes. The master bedroom has an en suite bathroom with bath, separate shower cubicle, bidet, washbasin and wc. There is a large balcony off this bedroom with a table and chairs set up for morning coffee or a sunset drink. The fully tiled main bathroom includes shower, bidet, wc and washbasin. On the ground floor there is an additional cloakroom.
The property overlooks the communal pool, the driving range and practice areas of the Indiana course. The patio is ideal for lazy lunches or evening drinks.
Though in a very quiet and safe location the house is only a couple of minutes walk from the clubhouse, first tee, crocodile club, on site shop and is adjacent to the practice area.


The Golf
The Indiana course is the first desert course in Europe and has been built to full USGA specifications and quality standards to match those of the famous desert courses of Arizona and California. The course has unforgettable views and dramatic golf with volcanic rock beds and cacti for hazards. The upkeep of the course is outstanding with fairways and greens that can only be described as manicured. A great test for golfers of all standards and an unforgettable experience.
There is a stunning practice area conveniently located next to the La Fuente development. This includes a putting green, driving range and chipping area. Lessons are available from the resident professional.

For those who would like to play other golf courses, Valle del Este and Marina Golf, both full 18 hole challenging courses, are within a 20 minute drive.

Resort and Surrounding Area
In addition to the pool in front of the house, for the exclusive use of La Fuente residents, there are plenty of activities for the non golfer. There is a Day Spa, the El Torrente clubhouse and restaurant, the Crocodile Club with bars, restaurant, tennis, paddle, gymnasium, free form swimming pool and children`s play areas. For the fitness enthusiast there is the Daley Thomson designed trim trail.

Close by is the pretty fishing village of Villaricos with its two small harbours and a selection of bars and restaurants. There is an excellent quiet beach on the edge of the village with its own Chiringuito. Along the coast is the fishing port of Garrucha with a wide variety of bars and restaurants, some serving the world renowned Garrucha Prawns (check the price before you order!).

Only a little further along are the lovely beaches of Mojacar Playa with a huge selection of bars, restaurants, beach bars and entertainment. Along the way you will pass the water park at Vera, a must for children of all ages. Up on the hillside, seeming to cling to the mountain, is the charming white town of Mojacar with fantastic views around the Moorish fortress at the top of the town.

Slightly further afield, on the south eastern tip of Spain, is the Cabo de Gata-Nijar Natural Park, a huge protected coastal area with spectacular cliffs, dunes, beaches and desert flora and fauna. There are little towns dotted along the coast with beaches, restaurants and bars while the Salinas de Cabo de Gata salt extraction lagoons have flocks of pink flamingos.
An hour away is the Moorish influenced city of Almeria with the Alcazaba Palace, Cathedral, Boulevards, Port and shopping. Much closer to Desert Springs in the town of Vera there is a huge Saturday market, only one of many in the region.
Just north of Almeria at Tabernas is the “Mini Hollywood” theme park of Oasys. This recreation of the wild west of America is where many films were made in the 60`s and 70`s. There are live shows, a wild west saloon, film museum, bar, restaurant, swimming pool and childrens play area.

The villa was perfect, well equipped and in a great location. The shared pool was really quite - most of the time we had it to ourselves. The only negatives would be that it is not great for people with young children due to the hard floors, steep stairs and glass tables throughout the villa and we did not have a welcome pack so didnt have any emergency information or details on departure which we found strange (we didnt even know when we were supposed to leave). But overall it was brilliant and we had a fantastic holiday!

We have been to desert springs before and as always it was excellent. We travelled with two children age 8 and 6 and the property had everything you needed and more. The location could not have been better straight out onto a well maintain pool and sunbathing area. We had an extremely relaxing and enjoyable family holiday.

Our holiday in Desert Springs was booked through their website. It’s he first time we had done this and we were nervous we wouldn’t get all the instructions we needed. We need not have worried as the Resort Staff were very helpful and professional. We had a great holiday. The pool is big and never full of people and there are great views. We especially enjoyed the peace and tranquillity of the resort although there were plenty of activities available if we were feeling energetic. We were given a very useful booklet with lists of activities, places to visit and useful phone numbers. Our townhouse was beautifully furnished and equipped. The bathrooms and kitchen were very smart. Tea coffee and bottled water were provided for when we arrived and the resort staff were very helpful. We enquired as to whether we could leave later than the official check out time of 10 am and were told that as there was no one booked in that day, we could stay until the afternoon. This was great as it gave us an extra day holiday. We will definitely be returning.
We have stayed at this villa several times in 2008 and 2009. It is well placed within the Desert Springs resort and well equipped and maintained. It has a view of the practice range grab a drink and watch people's golf swings from the roof terrace. It overlooks open country but is a only short walk to the main building with restaurant, shop and pro shop or up to the crocodile club. The patio has direct access to the infinity pool which is a good size.Inside, the kitchen is very well supplied with everything you could need and the lounge has new furniture of a very good quality. The owners have only let it to a few people so everything is in excellent condition.Although the Desert Springs resort has everything you need for a stay, especially an excellent golf course kept in good condition, we've taken 20ᆲ minute drives to the coast for the beach and restaurants and there are 6 or 7 other golf courses within an hour's drive.
I spent a week at Desert Springs as the guest of a friend. (so please ignore the value for money rating which the I was forced to selec t byt the computer system!). The complex is perfect for non golfers like me who just want to relax. Wonderful weather, a pol within a few yards of the house, friendly ambience, good food and great beaches within easy reach.
