We arrived to a warm welcome and a tour of the property. There were 5 adults and a baby in our party, and we kept discovering all the equipment available. Whilst we were only there 8 days for a wedding we thoroughly enjoyed the house and surroundings. It was conveniently located and quiet, not being near the developed areas, and the neighbours were helpful and friendly. We would go back again if we required a house in the area.

Excellently equipped with everything you could ever need and more. Superb pool/garden area at the rear of the property which is extremely safe for children. The location offers a "taste of Spain" as you mingle with the locals in the supermarkets, restaurants, cafes and bars. The owners are extremely helpful providing details of the local area and places of interest. Thank you for sharing your wonderful home with us!!!

We where only spending 5 days at the house while our son was attending football school at La Manga Sports center. We where met at the house when arriving (a bit later than expected) and the house was really as good as or even better than described on this site. We would with no doubt come back again later if we are going another trip to La Manga or even recommend this to friends. We also found the "hints and tips"-book very useful. Thanks!
A very clean and comfortable house with a great pool and the added benefit of a roof terrace. A car is a must. There are lots of beaches and restaurants within a 15 minute drive. We spent a very enjoyable 10 days there with our 3 children.

Very large house which had everything we expected and some more.
A large pool area for this sice of community.
The surrounding area is quiet and the neighbours very friendly as well as the residents. La Manga offers nice beaches to the sea with strong wawes, and the salt sea near offers very low water without strong wawes, which is good for smaller children. If you can't enjoy this environment, you are in the wrong place. Preben Olsen - visitor June 2007
