Before leaving for Spain I was fortunate enough to stumble upon a website that offered furnished places for travelers to stay that were much more homey then a hostel or a hotel!
I wanted a place close to the ocean but also one away from the big cities! I really wanted to force myself to learn as much Spanish as I could and staying away from larger cities is a good way to ensure that most people do not speak English!
I found a wonderful place in the San Javier region of Murcia, Spain. Its a 2 bedroom (3 beds and a pull out couch) 1 bathroom, fully equipped kitchen and a AMAZING roof top patio! It is exactly what the pictures describe, and I couldn't have been happier with my stay!
The cost in the low season was nice and cheap, and the owners made us feel so welcome, even inviting us over for a BBQ our first weekend here in San Javier!
The area is nice but in its low season it can be pretty quiet! I didn't find that a problem though because there is a local bus not but a 2 minute walk from the house that will take you over to the next door cities like Catagena and Murcia for under 4 Euros!
The walks along the beach up into San Pedro are calming and beautiful, and you can take a ferry over to La Manga for the day not but a 20 Minute walk from the house! Walking in the main street of San Javier you can see many local fish markets, and tapas restaurants, traditional Spanish bars and even a few English Pubs if you need a taste of home!
The beds are comfy, the house is warm, the roof top patio has an incredible view, you can save money by using the full kitchen to cook your own meals, and really just enjoy all the comforts of home...away from home!
