The house is on the beachfront, 30 metres from the Mar Menor sea. It is in 'Playa Honda' village. This coastal village still keeps a genuine Spanish atmosphere being a typical Spanish families' holiday destination. Playa Honda is located in the section of the Spanish Mediterranean Coast called ´Costa Calida´, literally translated, "the warm coast"with around 320 sunny days a year! The average temperature throughout the year is 18ºC, and the monthly average temperatures during June, July, August and September are around 24ºC. Another pleasant factor is low rainfall rate here.
The house is on the ground floor. It has two double rooms (one of them with bunk beds and a pullout bed) and one single room; two living room areas (one of them with a sofa-bed); a fully equipped kitchen; a bathroom and a toilet. There is a furnished forecourt with an amazing view of the sea and surrounded by palm trees and Mediterranean style community garden. The forecourt offers a shaded area and a sunny one through all the four seasons. It is furnished with a table, 6 chairs and several deckchairs. This is the main feature of the house since that is where we usually spend the whole day. There are also two small tiled back yards. In one of them there is a small toilet and an outdoor shower. There is a private car parking space a few metres from the house. Access to the house entrance is through a private pedestrian alley.
The house has a chemist's, some bars and restaurants and a supermarket less than 5 minutes walking distance. In summer there is also a greengrocer's, a fishmonger's and a pound shop right in the area. It is located 28 kms from Cartagena, a historical city of 210,000 inhabitants, and 5 kms from the fishers' village Cabo de Palos, whose sea bed has been designated an Integral Marine Reserve and which offers one of thecubadiving sites in Spain . The natural regional park 'Calblanque, Monte de Cenizas y Peña del Águila' with its dunes and coastline opened to the Mediterranean is only 5 kms away and it is full of hiking paths to explore one of the most exotic landscapes in Spain. La Mangaclub golf resort (11 kms away) offers a great variety of bars and restaurants with a more English atmosphere. La Manga summer village (5 kms away) offers a lively night life during the high season. In July there are also two very important music festivals in the area: Jazz San Javier Festival and Mar de Músicas Festival in Cartagena.
