I booked the apartment through "Home Sitting in the Sun" and booked my flight through monarch airlines. I choose a 1st floor apartment with a balcony and private roof terrace. I went in mid September for 1 week.
From my initial contact with Home Sitting in the Sun I received a first class friendly service. I had a quick response to my emails with all my queries answered. On arrival at Murcia airport I got transfers directly to the complex. I was shown around the apartment and had demonstrations of the equipment such as how to use the air con and alarm. The representative told me about the local amenities and how to access them. I was given a business card with contact number and advised that I could contact the representative with any issues/queries/concerns. The representative lived on the complex and showed me where they were located so I could access them if I needed anything. Nothing was too much trouble for them.
The properties are privately owned so are equipped for someone to live in. The apartment I stayed in contained a cooker, Washing Machine, Iron and Ironing board, Kettle toaster, DVD player, TV, HiFi plus everything else you would anticipate to be in someone’s home. There were sun loungers for the roof terrace and patio table and chairs on the balcony. There were two bedrooms one with a double bed and one with two single beds, with ample wardrobe space. There was one bathroom and an ensuite. The apartment also had air conditioning. Towels and bed linen were provided and there was soap/shower gel, washing liquid and cleaning materials, tea towels etc.
Security at the complex was a great peace of mind especially being a female travelling alone. The perimeter of the complex is gated with key access, there were two swimming pools which had coded access and the apartment was alarmed as well as having secure locking doors at the front and rear, a safe was also in the property. The private roof terrace was a gem with sea views!
The complex is in a residential area so is very peaceful. The closest beach was about 15 min walk away with the nearest supermarket just down the road, about a 5 min walk; this had everything you would need. A few more minutes walk was a shopping centre with a petrol station, if you have hired a car. The nearest bars and restaurants were about a 10 min walk away.
There are a number of beaches to visit as well as the near by resorts. Playa Flamenca (which was about a 15 min walk) had number of sources of entertainment. A taxi to Torrevieja cost me 8 euro’s.
For me I liked the security and peaceful location, the well equipped apartment and the peace of mind knowing that there was a representative who was easily accessible friendly and willing to help make my holiday a good one. Unfortunately I chose a week when the area had storm but at least I had the TV to watch! I’ll definitely be going back!
