Apartment in Vera Playa, Almeria, Spain - Modern Complex and 10 Mins Walk to Beach
About Mark Wild
Hi my name is Mark, I'm a Engineer from Manchester. I really enjoy going on holiday with my family and getting away from it all. After years of traveling to various places around Europe, I finally found a place in the sun that really suits us.
Mark Wild purchased this Apartment in 2007
Why Mark Wild chose Vera
Having never been to main land Spain (we've had many holidays in the Balearic islands), myself and family spent a two week holiday in Almeria in 2006. We immediately fell in love with the area, people and weather on offer here. The climate is fantastic (apparently the best in Europe), the sun always seems to shine (I've been at various times of the year - Easter, half term, Summer, October, etc). The beauty of it is, that although its hot (especially in August), there always seems to be a nice breeze, which is ideal both for me and my two children. The number of beaches is incredible and they all seem to have their own unique personality. Some are busy, with a great deal of facilities (waves, body boarding ect.) and others are very remote and quiet.
What makes this Apartment unique
After months & months of apartment hunting, I finally found a lovely 2 bedroom/2 bathroom apartment on a small complex in Playa Vera called Veranda. This apartment was always bought primary, as a holiday home for my family to spend years of quality time there. It's only recently, after owning it for three years that I've started to rent it out. The apartment is ideally located on the complex, and the reason I choose it was because it overlooked the pool & Spa. With having two young children, I found it so convenient, simply to walk down to the pool and have easy access to the apartment, when required. You'll find the complex is quiet, relaxing and is located close to the local beach. Supermarkets, bars/resturants and Almeria's waterpark are all within easy walking distance.
Please consider the following guidelines when booking this property:
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
Great base for a week in the sun
The apartment has nearly everything that you might want for a week away. Comfy beds, sofa, dining area and fitted kitchen. It’s a short drive to shops, restaurants and beaches. Good value for money. Clean and neat.
Excellent location for a younger family with a swing park and pool right outside. However you will need a car if you want to get around Very clean apartment
1st floor apartment in good position on the complex
We enjoyed our stay in this 1st floor apartment. It is well equiped, clean, light and airy. The underground parking was a real bonus as the weather was very hot. We stayed mid October and the complex was very quiet. The apartment has everything you need for your holiday. WiFI was very good. No English TV channels. The jacuzzi in the fitness suite was amazing! We only found one restaurant that we could walk to easily in a neighbouring complex which was very good but we were the only people in there. It is mentioned in the helpful information pack in the apartment. Consum and Mercadona supermarkets nearby by car. Ideal position to explore the coast down to Mojacar and Almeria and some fabulous mountain roads with spectacular views. Some typically Spanish local markets with local produce at very low prices and great quality.
Todo ha ido muy bien. El trato ha sido estupendo y el sitio está muy bien emplazado, frente a la piscina, muy limpia y con césped. Es un lugar ideal para ir con niños. la casa cumple con las expectativas, limpia y cómoda para vivir. nos gustaría repetir en otra ocasión.
fab appt overlooking pool and spotless
My husband my 12 year old son my 8 year old daughter and I had a fab 12 day stay in this appt. It was close to beaches, big supermarkets and local towns. We did hire a car and think this would be advisable to move around.. The pool, gardens and appts were spotlessly clean and nice and quiet.... We would definitely return next year and would have no problem recommending it to family and friends....
An absolutely lovely apartment with every amenity
I stayed here with my 2 young boys and we had such a lovely relaxing time due to how close the apartment is situated to the pool, gym, hot tub and underground parking.
The secure apartment complex provides piece of mind. The complex is impeccably maintained too.
The apartment was lovely & clean and had a lot of additional amenities not mention by Mark in the listing.
Mark could not have been more helpful in the booking process even with the 100 questions I had!!!
Thank you :-)
