Holiday Rental House
This attractive modern property is situated at the edge of Estrella de Mar with sea views and surrounded by countryside. The villa is very nicely decorated and has an attractive private patio garden with seating, sun-loungers and a BBQ. It also has balcony with table and chairs and a great view across the Mar Menor and the surrounding countryside. This is a 3 bedroom property but we advertise and price the house as a 2 bedroom as we like to attract small groups, especially couples, during the quieter months. Suitability for Elderly or Disabled: The property is suitable for those with limited mobility as there is a bedroom and shower room on the ground floor. The downstairs shower is fitted with a seat for the disabled and a grab handle.

The villa is very nicely decorated and has an attractive private patio garden with seating, sun-loungers and a BBQ. It also has balcony with table and chairs and a great view across the Mar Menor and the surrounding countryside. This is a 3 bedroom property but we advertise and price the house as a 2 bedroom as we like to attract small groups, especially couples, during the quieter months. Suitability for Elderly or Disabled: The property is suitable for those with limited mobility as there is a bedroom and shower room on the ground floor. The downstairs shower is fitted with a seat for the disabled and a grab handle. Please note doorways are narrow so it is not suitable for wheelchairs. Estrella de Mar and the surrounding area is flat so the walk to the beach, the promenade and the restaurants are all on the level. The beach is only 2 minutes walk away and there are 5 restaurants / bars in this small pretty village. The beach club has a large swimming pool, tennis courts, table tennis, mini golf and a multi-sport area, these are free for your use with just a small charge for tennis. Pool Usage and other activities: The pool is situated 4 minutes walk from the house. There is a cafe next to the pool where you can get a snack and relax. There are no sun loungers in the pool area. We specifically chose not to purchase a property which had a pool next door as you would get noise all day from children playing in the pool, in fact this can continue well into the night! The pool is for the village of Estrella de Mar and is not open to the general public, we provide you with an electronic key to get in. Many houses in the village have pools of their own so it doesn't tend to get overcrowded. We run a watersports company called Aqua Adicta we run kayak safaris and paddle-boarding on the Mar Menor. Our activities are suitable for people of all ages and abilities. We live just 10 mins from the property therefore you can be assured that if you have any problems we are just around the corner. Information on lots of activities is available at the villa including: hiking, thermal baths, golf, diving, bike hire and mountain bike routes, water-sports, horse riding, go-karting, bowling etc. Places to visit: The small Spanish town of LOS URRUTIAS is a short walk (3 minutes) away. It has a grocery store, hardware store, florist, bodega and a number of bars and restaurants. A 5km drive takes you to LOS ALCAZARES, an old fishing town that has grown into a popular resort. Excellent shallow sandy beaches particularly safe for children as there are no tides or currents in the Mar Menor lagoon. Also come here for shops, supermarkets, restaurants and bars. There are beautiful Mediterranean beaches to visit about 15 mins drive including the CLABLANQUE NATURAL PARK (10km) which is our favourite place to visit in the area. The Calblanque has beautiful long sandy beaches (some naturist) and natural countryside for walking and cycling. CABO DE PALOS (12 km) has a lighthouse and a lovely old harbour well known for its fish restaurants The old Moorish cities of CARTAGENA (15km) and MURCIA (30km) are an excellent day trip for their shops, architecture and history (Roman ruins in Cartagena). LA MANGA DEL MAR MENOR (14km) is the place to go for nightlife, shopping, water activities and great beaches. Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: VV.MU.368More

We stayed for three weeks and felt the house was pretty much ideal for us, so well kitted out and with wonderful views from the large balcony of fields, mountains in the distance and the sea to the right, very tranquil and yet amenities within...More

About the neighbourhood
Our house is located on the edge of the village of Estrella de Mar. It overlooks open countryside and has views over the Mar Menor from the balcony. The village is located next to the sea with a large sandy beach and a very modern communical swimming pool. The village is pretty with several parks it also has a wildlife pond with frogs, terepins and fish. There are 5 restaurants within just a 5 minute walk of our house and may others located in Los Urrutias which are about a 10 minute walk. There is a supermarket located about 3 minutes walk from our house.
Getting around
We recommend car hire as the roads are good and public transport is infrequent especially in the winter. BUSES run from Los Urrutias to Los Alcazares, Cado de Palos and Cartagena (summer only). There is also a TRAIN which runs from Los Nietos to Cartagena (all year). We also have a driver who can take you on trips to visit the many beautiful beaches and places of interest in the area for example: Cartagena, Cabo de Palos, Los Alcazares, Murcia, Calblanque Natural Park. The area is very flat and therefore ideal to explore by BIKE, these can be hired and delivered to the house (you will need to arrange this before your holiday)
