The Base in Spain is only ten minutes walk away from a gorgeous and very safe beach, suitable for adults and children alike. During the summer it's dotted with beach bars and is a great place to relax. Although Los Alcazares is a peaceful and relaxing little town, there is a sailing school and various watersports for the more active amongst you, as well as two water parks within 45 minutes drive. The whole area is wonderfully flat and there is a 7km paved promenade which runs along the seafront which is perfect for bikes or buggies. The Base in Spain is a stylish two-floor apartment. It has a south-facing balcony and a private roof terrace where you can dine alfresco. The sitting room is not overlooked, with lovely views of palm tree tops from the sofa.

During the summer it's dotted with beach bars and is a great place to relax. Although Los Alcazares is a peaceful and relaxing little town, there is a sailing school and various watersports for the more active amongst you, as well as two water parks within 45 minutes drive. The whole area is wonderfully flat and there is a 7km paved promenade which runs along the seafront which is perfect for bikes or buggies. The Base in Spain is a stylish two-floor apartment. It has a south-facing balcony and a private roof terrace where you can dine alfresco. The sitting room is not overlooked, with lovely views of palm tree tops from the sofa. We have air con and powerful remote-control ceiling fans plus an HD flat-screen TV, DVD player and digibox, with UK channels and recordable TV. We have a kitchen with separate utility room. We also have two bedrooms on the lower floor with fitted wardrobes (one double and one twin) and a family bathroom. There is air con throughout. Up the stairs you'll find the master bedroom with ensuite: a lovely room which also overlooks the park and has some stunning views towards the mountains. It leads straight out onto the roof terrace. If you have children there is an outdoor tap and paddling pool which can be set up. The Base in Spain is fully-equipped with a buggy, highchair, booster chair, travel cot, stair gate, bed guard, travel steriliser and children's toys, beach toys and DVDs, so our younger guests have plenty to occupy them. We also have a small barbecue, a hairdryer, a parasol and portable chairs for the pool and beach. Albatros Residencial is a beautiful and safe gated development, with two pools: an infinity pool and a children's pool. There is a lifeguard during peak season and a guard for night patrol. Within a few minutes walk there are three large supermarkets which are fully stocked with everything you could need. There is also a gorgeous plaza full of bars and restaurants serving a variety of cuisines. It's only 10 minutes transfer time from Murcia San Javier or an hour from Alicante which means you don't have the hassle of long journeys to and from the airport during your much-needed break. If you do bring your own buggy, you can leave it securely in the stairwell so you don't have to carry it up and down the stairs. There is plenty of parking outside the apartment, although a car is not essential as everything is a short walk away. We can accommodate up to 6 adults and a baby or child in the travel cot. The weekly price includes 20E electric/air con cards, all bedlinen and bath towels. PLEASE NOTE AN ADDITIONAL 70 EUROS CLEANING FEE IS TO BE PAID TO OUR KEY HOLDER ON ARRIVAL. We can provide a welcome pack for those of you who would like one, and airport pick up and drop off for 5 with a baby seat if needed. Please request further details at time of booking. A £100 refundable damage deposit is payable at the time of booking. This will be returned to your bank account within 7 days of returning home, if the property is left in a suitable condition. We have a strict non-smoking policy inside the apartment, but do provide ash trays for smoking on the roof terrace. Electricity is part-metered to monitor the air con usage and we provide a free 20 Euro card for a week's stay, which is ample for most guests. For additional usage, cards can be purchased from our key holder when checking in. Happy holidays!More

The apartment worked well for us, as the rooms were a good size for us and the travel cot. Having an equipped kitchen and the buggy provided was so helpful in cutting down on things to travel with. Location wise, it was perfect for us...More

About the neighbourhood
The Mar Menor is a large, warm saltwater lagoon. It is very safe for swimming as it is only around 7m at it's greatest depth, which makes it very safe for swimming, especially for young children. Sites of interest in and around the region include Cartagena and Murcia city.
How to get there
There are flights to Murcia San Javier from most UK airports, including London Luton and London Stansted. Transfer time from the airport to The Base in Spain is 10 minutes. The new International airport at Corvera will be opening in January 2019 and is approx 30 mins drive away.
