We have just spent 10 weeks in Mike's lovely villa. The beds were exceptionally comfortable and the kitchen very well appointed. The wood burner in the lounge was extremely efficient which was great for us as we spent our holiday here during the coldest and wettest winter that this part of Spain has had for 90 years. Having said that we only had about 6/7 days/nights of rain but one of those was SNOW and we got 4" of the stuff during January. Stuart and Natasha who look after the property for Mike are fantastic. We had a few problems with the heating and washing machine while we were at the villa and Stuart was there for us immediately, trying to sort things out as quickly as he could. Our only complaint about the villa was the radiator central heating, which did not have a remote controller and had to be manually turned off and on (and also broke down 3 times) and let me tell you when it is -2 and snowing that is no fun. Mike says he will be installing a new controller this year so hopefully whoever stays in the villa next winter will be warm and cosy. The views from the house over the mountains and down to the coast at Mojacar are truly stunning and the sunrise is absolutely amazing. I won't forget that sunrise in a long time. We founds some wonderful walks all around the area and we all had a great stay. Hopefully, if we come back to this area in a few years we can stay here again. All in all, we would thoroughly recommend this house for a lovely relaxing holiday. My Response Anne Thank you for your review. So glad you enjoyed your 10 week stay and found the villa so comfortable. Stuart and Natasha are the very best. Our top priority is always to ensure our guests have a trouble free and enjoyable holiday. If things go wrong Stuart deals with them and resolves the issues promptly. We will be happy to welcome you back at any time in the future. Regards Mike


We’ve visited a number of times now – can’t get enough of it! We’re quite a large 3-generation family group – four oldies (including me), three in their thirties, and a couple of little ‘uns – so it’s important there’s plenty of space, and very good facilities. Mike’s Villa has them all in abundance. It very much has the feeling of a family home (albeit a large one). The rooms are furnished to a very high standard, beds are large and comfortable, the kitchen is well-equipped and there’s plenty of room inside and out for us all (including space to get away from each other, if we need to!). The gardens, orchard and pool are brilliant, of course – I don’t think the photographs quite do them justice. Unsuprisingly, we spent a large part of every day in and around the pool. And then there are the fabulous views to the mountains and the Mediterranean a few miles away, and varied local walks (easy or hard, as you wish). I could go on and on… It’s also very important to us to have a range of really good bars and restaurants in easy walking distance. (And there are numerous others just a short drive away.) There are also small shops and a bakery nearby. (It usually fell to me to get fresh bread, croissants and other delicious pastries every morning, which I never minded because the stroll into town is so pleasant.) That said, Mike’s Villa is sufficiently out of the town for there to be complete peace and quiet, which is also important to us. We can’t wait to come back! Maggie & Philip


This was the 2nd time we have stayed at this villa. Comfortable living area, well equipped kitchen, 4 large bedrooms en suite and wonderful views from all the rooms and terraces! The outside space is fabulous. Plenty of room to relax and enjoy the stunning views of the mountains especially as the sun starts to go down. Great views over to Mojacar and the coast and in the evening the lights of Bedar look lovely. You won’t fail to enjoy a dip in the good sized pool and at night the children will love the coloured lights in the pool. It’s within a short walk to Bedar, a typically Spanish village which has 4 restaurants, 2 small supermarkets, a bank and a chemist and you will love walking there in the warmth of the evening to enjoy the great food on offer. Not far from the main road to Mojacar and nearby towns but far enough to make you feel like you've got away from it all and can relax and enjoy the peace and quiet.

The view from this lovely villa is truly breathtaking, to sit on the terrace or by the gorgeous pool with such a panorama is a really special experience. The villa is really well equipped and the bedrooms really comfy. Its a short picturesque walk to the village where there are 4 bars/restaurants, a bakery, chemists and tabac and bank. Its a lovely quaint friendly village. Its only about 30 mins by car to amazing Mojacar and the beach. Thanks Mike for the opportunity to relax in such beautiful surroundings. Linda Lynoltis
