We have a lovely two bedroom holiday apartment on a golf resort near Murcia in Southern Spain. The apartment is furnished to a very high standard throughout. It is perfect for a quiet retreat. In the area there is a good mixture of beaches, mountains to walk or cycle, wine regions and Murcia city for some shopping or nightlife.
About the resort
The apartment is built around a Jack Nicklaus Par 72, 18 hole course where the Spanish Open was played in 2010. (If you don’t like golf, just think of it as a very large manicured garden! The course is a naturalised desert style course with lakes and as a result lots of wildlife). There are also plenty of swimming pools including one that is 1 minute from the flat.
About the apartment
The apartment is on the second floor looking right the way up the golf course towards the mountains. It gets the morning and later afternoon sun but the terrace is shielded from the heat of the midday sun.
The accommodation comfortably sleeps 4 in two double bedrooms. The master bedroom has a five foot double bed, fitted wardrobes, views over the golf course. Good quality linen, and duvets provided. The mattresses and pillows are of very good quality to ensure a great night’s sleep. The second bedroom has two x 4’ beds and walk in wardrobes and the linen and mattresses are the same quality as the master bedroom.. The beds can be pushed together to make one very large double. There is a hairdryer and straighteners.
The lounge is a good open plan space; it has a large comfortable leather sofa, with flat screen TV and use of wireless internet as well as Apple TV to access the Apple shop to enable you to buy and download movies.
The connection speed is very good and inclusive. There is a dining area with table and chairs, which could easily seat 6 people. Very good quality furnishings throughout in a light and modern style. This area also has an air conditioning unit.
The sliding doors from the lounge lead out onto the terrace. Of course the terrace is the main room of the house and where you will spend your time when not using the pools, playing golf or exploring the area. The Terrace is a large L shape with a very relaxing corner sofa overlooking the golf course, dining table to seat 6, sun loungers, bean bags , BBQ. We have an ipod docking station that can be used out on the terrace as well, we even have Peroni Pint glasses!
There is a small but well equipped Kitchen, black granite work surfaces with dishwasher, oven/hob, large American style fridge/freezer with Ice machine, Illy coffee machine and wine cooler. Along with all cooking utensils, china & cutlery and all those gadgets we have at home. We run the fridge and the wine cooler on an honesty basis. There should be plenty of wines, cava and beer when you arrive, we just ask that you replace it as you go along.
