Cuevas del Mar Apartment

Chill out in our modern Penthouse overlooking the Med. Small friendly beach side complex with solar heated communal pool and gardens.
This corner penthouse apartment is light and airy with air-conditioning or ceiling fans in each room for those hot summer days.

Internal stairs lead to large private solarium with fabulous panoramic views to sea and mountains. Secure underground parking. Quiet and safe village with little traffic.
For Winter bookings and those odd few chilly days, the apartment is kept snug and warm by variable heat settings of the dual air-conditioning. Guests are asked NOT TO SMOKE inside the apartment.
This natural, undeveloped beach is ideal for quiet relaxation as it is still a bit of a secret with the Spanish locals and a nice spot can always be found. The beach bar is just 100m away and there is an aparthotel for snacks and drinks. If you want somewhere more 'lively' then San Juan de los Terrerros (5 mins drive) is the closest. Plenty going on there with shops, bars, restaurants plus fiestas and Sunday market during the summer months.diving. Vera Water park-15 mins drive.
Historical white walled village of Mojacar-20 mins drive. Good selection of bars and restaurants in local villages all with weekly markets. Numerous historical castles and museums within easy reach. Large shopping centres in cities of Murcia and Almeria (1 hour drive)

"A very relaxing and peaceful stay"
I stayed in this apartment with my dog Molly for a week in April 2012. The apartment was very light and airy with plenty of outside space, having a balcony off the lounge, a roof terrace that went 3/4 of the way around the roof meaning that there was always a sunny spot to sit (and also a shady spot for Molly). The views from here to the sea were tremendous.
The apartment is fully equipped with large fridge/ freezer, hob (no oven), microwave with grill, washing machine, small dishwasher, kettle, toaster, iron & ironing board, plus the essentials for food preparation. The lounge has a very comfy sofa(bed) and 2 chairs and a dining table and 4 chairs. It also has hot/cold aircon, UK Sky TV (all free channels) and Spanish digital TV with built in DVD player. There is garden furniture on the balcony and roof terrace. Bedding and towels (not beach) were provided at no additional cost. There is one double and one twin bedroom, both with wardrobes and ceiling fans. There are a number of steps to climb from the road and also to the roof terrace (which is accessed from the lounge) so would not be suitable for those with walking difficulties.
There is a communal pool but I did not use it as was on April but it looked very clean and was surrounded by a grassy area and safely gated.
The best bit for me though was the close proximity of the beach - literally 2 mins walk through the grounds of the apartments, which has 4 gates, 2 directly on to the beach and 2 on to the road. Although the photo in the description shows the frontline townhouses on the beach, the apartments are behind the townhouses, separated by gardens and the pool, so effectively 2nd line properties but really only a stone's throw away. The beach is one of those unmade Spanish gems that are very hard to find these days. Absolutely ideal for a dog. There was a number of good walks along the beach and the surrounding coastline. The beach bar did not appear to be open, except during 2 important football matches, so for a bit of night life you would need to go further afield but it suited me just to stay in and take in the night air from the terrace.
The booking was easily made via email. I paid in GBP by bank transfer. The keyholders, who live opposite, were waiting with the key at the agreed arrival time and after showing me around, left me in peace but were there if I needed anything (which I didn't). All in all, a very easy transaction.
If you are looking for an 'far from the madding crowds' type of holiday and are not looking for miles of golden sand, then this is the place to be. Due to the mix of nationalities, I suspect that it may be a bit less peaceful during the Spanish holiday periods of July and August but I will certainly be going back outside of those times.
