FREE UNLIMITED Wi-Fi available in the apartment.
The apartment in on the 1st floor and located on Phase 2 so within easy walking distance of the golf course and club house. It is also within a few minutes drive of Los Alcazares and the Mar Menor beaches, which are gently shelving and really safe for kids. The stylishly furnished apartment has full air conditioning, full central heating and electric security grills. There's a HUGE, south facing balcony where you can relax in the sun or shade all day. Dine dine Al fresco for Breakfast, Lunch or Dinner or just relax with a glass of wine.
The apartment at Roda Golf was bought as our holiday home, so because of this, it has lots of stuff in that you wouldn't normally find in a rental apartment. Good pans, good knives, lots of crockery, cutlery and glasses. A large fridge - 'cos that's what you'll need to stock all the great fruit and veg from the area and lots to drink for the kids.
Our apartment has so much more than you might expect to make your holiday enjoyable. There are 2 sunbeds and 2 garden chairs, plus a beach chair, 2 lilos and other inflatables for the pool. Plus a sun umbrella and buckets and spades for the young ones to take to the beach.
There are duvets for the Winter, but also the option of blankets for the Spring and Autumn when you don't quite need such warmth. Plus fans in both bedrooms as, if you're like us, we don't like to sleep with air-con on overnight. . . . .
There's a visitors guide in the apartment so you can see what's available in the area - including a guide to the beaches, water parks, golf courses and entertainment in Los Alcazares and the Murcia area.
On arrival you will be met at the apartment by Mike and Bev the owners, who will show you round, make sure you know where everything is to ensure you settle in quickly.
We are based in Spain and only a short drive away so if you have any problems whilst you are in our apartment we will try to sort things out over the phone or come to the apartment where that isn't possible.
RODA GOLF RESORT
Roda Golf is now a PGA Academy and lessons are available for children as well as adults. The course is becoming increasing popular with both professionals and amateurs alike. It has hosted many tournaments including a round of the PGA Championships, with competing golfers from all over Europe, and the Spanish Junior Open. In addition, the driving range and practice putting green are both proving to be great attractions.
ABOUT THE MAR MENOR AREA
Roda Golf and Beech Resort is not just for the golfer ................
Located on the Costa Calida, next to the Mediterranean Sea, Roda is just 2 km from Los Alcázares and the Mar Menor.
The promenade and beach stretches for 7 km and the local blue-flag beaches are fantastic having won the Q awards for excellence & safety.
Dotted with "chiringuitos" where you can have tapas to keep you going throughout the day. The water temperature is much higher than the surrounding Mediterranean and is warm enough to swim even in Spring! The gently shelving beaches make it safe for kids.
The waters of the Mar Menor are renowned for their healing properties and the water temperature is warm enough to swim even in early Spring!
The setting of the Costa Calida and Mar Menor is truly incredible. With more than 253 Km of Mediterranean beach, around 320 days of sunshine per year enjoying annual average temperatures of around 21 ºC, the Costa Calida is the perfect holiday place for a relaxing break all year round.
The Costa Calida is the ideal spot to enjoy your holiday with all the cultural and biological richness of the region of Murcia. It is also one of the most important spots in the world for sports lovers, offering various water sports including swimming, sailing, scuba diving and water skiing, as well as activities such as tennis, trekking or golf.
The nearest town of Los Alcázares is 2km away with a range of shops, bars & restaurants. The promenade stretches for 8km, the local blue-flag beaches are fantastic having won the Q awards for excellence & safety. The beaches are dotted with "chiringuitos" - bars selling a variety of Tapas dishes, refreshments & local beer!
The nearest beach at Los Narejos is just 2 km from the resort. Gently shelving and really safe for kids. Apart from the height of Summer, the beach is usually quiet and is my personal favourite. The beach bars serve reasonably priced tapas, snacks and burgers. Start from here to walk the promenade all the way to the Yacht Club at the other end of Los Alcazares.
SANTIAGO DE LA RIBERA
The fishing village of Santiago de la Ribera is just 10 minutes drive away. It grew as a prime holiday destination for wealthy Murcians who built their houses along the coast. Santiago has a lovely promenade flanked by attractive palm trees. Today Santiago is still popular with the Spanish for their vacations but also attracts tourists from all over Europe and although it has a modern air, it has still maintained its ‘fishing village’ atmosphere. It has a good selection of shops, bars and restaurants.
Santiago de la Ribera boasts a popular water-sports centre and sailing club so with it's superb safe beaches, sailing, water skiing, boat hire, wind surfing, fishing, cycling, a sports centre, and scuba diving ..... It's a great place to visit
Lo Pagan, near San Pedro del Pinatar, is a 20 minute drive and a visit is a must to take in the famous mud baths which has been renowned from early times for its healing powers. Get dirty ... by applying the mud all over the body and then dry out in the sun before washing off in the salt waters. The kids will love it!
CARTAGENA & MURCIA
Travel further afield to visit the roman ruins at Cartagena of the historic city of Murcia where you'll find amazing buildings and churches.

Mike was a marketing manager for a leading scientific glassware company.
Married for over 40 years, we sailed the Irish Sea and the Mediterranean in our yacht for 14 years but now only sail occasionally as more sedate pursuits beckon - so we play bridge.
Originally from Manchester, we bought a house in Spain to retire to which is located in a small Spanish village. However, it's old! So we are constantly working on lots of 'reformas' to make it into a place where we can relax and enjoy in our retirement.
