This villa is perfect for a family holiday, with plenty of space for everyone. The ´flat´ on the upper floor is also an extra bonus at a small additional cost if needed. With full capacity it sleeps 8 so it would also be perfect for larger group bookings. The property is in an excellent location. It´s a stone´s throw away from the pool, beach and the airport. It is close enough to bars and restaurants(10 min on foot) yet far enough to enjoy the peacefulness and tranquility of the area. There are also some good bus routes available to the larger cities, such as cartagena, murcia and torrevieja. Torrevieja has an excellent waterpark. On the opposite side of the Mar Menor you have La Manga, which is well worth a visit. La Manga is a long strip of land and on one side you have the waters of the Mar Menor and on the other side you have the Mediterrean. There are regular boat taxis from Los Alcazares to La Manga during the summer. There are three supermarkets near the villa, again all within walking distance. The local market is every saturday and is 2 minutes from the villa. It sells local fresh fruit and vegetables, clothes, jewellery etc the Mar Menor ¨little sea¨ is our local beach and it is extremely safe for swimming. Dotted along the beach are a host of chiringuitos (beach bars) which make fresh tapas, serve cold local beer and are oozing with spanish hospitality. 10 minutes away from the villa, there is a ¨strip¨ full of bars and restaurants. It is perfect for nights out and has a huge variety of different food to please the palate of even the fussiest of eaters. If you want something typically spanish you don´t have to look very far as the area has oodles of tapa bars and spanish restaurants at very reasonabe prices.

About Jane Murphy
Hola! My name is Jane Murphy. I am from Ireland but have been living in Spain for the last 8 years working as an English teacher. I began coming to this part of Spain when I was 9 or 10 and as a child I fell in love with the area. Who wouldn´t? Sun, sea and more sun! Rare in Ireland. I didn´t only fall in love with the country but also with my husband Jose, who as you are guessing from the name is a local. We live in a nearby village so if there are ever any problems with the house or you need any help or advice we are obviously at hand. I hope you enjoy your stay at the villa, I have no doubt you will. Adios!
Jane Murphy purchased this Villa in 2007
Why Jane Murphy chose Los Alcázares
We decided to buy this villa because of its superb location really. It´s a 10 minute walk to the beach, the area has a variety of restaurants and bars and our villa has access to a shared pool. The pool is only used by a handful of villas and you need a key to enter. Also its so close to the airport that it makes travelling easy and hassle free.
What makes this Villa unique
The property is close to everything you need. Supermarkets, shops, the local market, the beach, restaurants and bars. Its also close to some beautiful golf courses. For those of you who are a little more active, there are kite surfing and sailing courses available along the beach and some great mountain biking tracks on the area´s only mountain ¨Cabezo Gordo¨ which means fat head!
Pool / Spa
Check-out: 12:00 PM
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Stayed at the villa so the family could visit a local resident for an 80th birthday celebration.
Have visited Los Nerjos before but never so late but the weather was still plenty warm enough for us, and not too many of the local businesses had closed for the winter.
Both the private pool and access to the shared communal pool great to use but a little cold, but that did not deter anyone. Would recommend the villa highly and would definately consider again
Lovely villa in a good location
A lovely villa in a good location. Walking distance to supermarkets, restaurants and beach. Jane and her husband, Jose, were friendly and extremely helpful. The villa and the pool were clean. We would definitely stay there again.
Dear dawn and family,
I am delighted you enjoyed your stay and it was a pleasure to have you and you lovely family stay in our villa. Hopefully see you again soon xx
Lovely villa with fabulous pool
We stayed for 11 nights in July and had a great time in this spacious villa. We particularly loved the large pool which we spent a lot of time in and around. Easy walk to the beach and also the restaurants which meant we hardly used the car. Communication with Jane was excellent and our arrival and departure was made easy. It was a shame we had to leave.
We have just returned from a fabulous holiday staying at Jane's villa. The villa is located in a beautiful residential area and is within a short walking distance from the shops, restaurants and a local market.
We were a family of seven my husband and five teenagers. We all loved the private pool and the outside areas to enjoy the food we had cooked in Jane's well equipped kitchen. This villa had everything you would need to make it your own home for your stay.
Would highly recommend staying at Jane's villa.
Hi Susanna, thank you so much for your lovely review. Happy to hear you had a nice time. Hopefully see you next year x
In need of some TLC
The villa appears very nice to begin with till you begin to see the areas where some TLC is needed. Was planning on self catering but on arrival was told the oven doesnt work very well. There were no sauce pans to cook a meal with, just one or two with no matching lids. Ended up eating out every day using our spending money. The dish washer did not work very well. Toilet door would not close. Struggled to open and close waldrobe in main bedroom. Twin room had no where to store your clothes. The bed in the en-suite room made so much noise when you turned over it would wake you up. The road outside is very busy and finally the tv freeview did not work. Sort all these minor problems out and it would be more pleasent to stay in with a small family. The pool is very nice and private. Living room area very nice too. But be warned the whole area of Los Narejos is covered in dog poo so check your shoes!.
Hi Sarah, thanks for the review. Sorry to hear you had a few problems on your stay. If I had know I would have done my best to try and sort it out for you. I have taken your comments about the villa on board and have already dealt with them. So thanks for bringing them to my attention. Take care, Jane.
Very impressed with accommodation, has everything
Just returned from a family holiday using Jane's villa. We were 2 families so we rented main house with above apartment. The villa was very clean , has everything you need. Fantastic private and comunial pool. Close to the beach, shops and fabulous restaurants. Would definitely return and recommend others to visit .
It´s a 10 minute walk or 2 minute drive to the beautiful blue flag beaches of the Mar Menor. All along the beach from Los Narejos to Los Alcazares you can rent beach loungers and try out the beach bars typical to this area.
It´s a five minute drive to San Javier (Murcia) airport from the villa. There are regular flights with Easyjet and Ryanair all year round. The next airport closest to the property is Alicante. It´s an hour drive from the villa, and we would be happy to supply airport transportation (baby seats included). Alternatively, car hire is also available from both airports.
