Sierra Golf with its own golf course, beside Balsicas with restaurants and bars, 15 minutes to the Mar Menor beaches & Murcia airport, and surrounded by about 7 more golf courses. You’ll love it because it is very roomy, on 3 floors, can sleep 10, it has wifi in the villa, and is in a very quiet area. Unspoiled. 3 bars onsite. You will need a car to get the most of your stay. Ideal for families, golf breaks or even hen parties.
Our Villa is on the Sierra Golf Urbanisation in Balsicas, Murica. It is a quiet and rural area, yet in the middle of the Murcia Golf Zone, where there are about 8 courses within 20 minutes of each other. Located only a few minutes drive from Murcia airport (Ryanair, Easyjet, Aer Lingus and Jet2) and from the Mar Menor beaches.
Onsite is the excellent newly renovated 9 hole golf course, called "New Sierra Golf" which has a driving range, putting green, lovely greens, along with 2 golf pro's, a club house and cafe bar. It only reopened this year after a refurb and is much improved. They are currently building out the next 9 holes. Amazing value, it costs only €40 for 2 including a buggy! I have a set of golf clubs in the house that you can use (not great, but complete and they will get you around)
This is our first time to let the villa and it has only ever been used by us and family. It is well set up with solar water heating, satellite tv, wifi, a media box with hundreds of movies on it, XBOX, and a DVD player to play the many dvds we have in the lounge too. Lots of books there for you to read. If you take one, please replace it with another. We have a chromecast device in the lounge so you can stream in whatever you stream no problem. The wifi covers the whole house including the basement. Downstairs in the games/living room, we have an old xbox, with lots of games and another TV, along with a small cd player. Ideal for kids. it also has a sofa bed. (cant guarantee all the games work etc, but feel free to use it). We also have a buggy, travel cot there, and a bag of toys, buckets, Beach boards for wave surfing, spades etc for the kids.
There are mens and womens mountain bikes that you can use, old, but they do the job and will get you around. You could easily cycle to the local villages of Balsicas and La Tercia in 15 minutes or so.
It's a decent sized villa with plenty of space to chill out and have private time with the 3 different terraces and the second living room. 10 can sleep but I would say the ideal number for comfort would be 8.
Golf groups are welcome.
Sierra golf has about 400 villas in the community and has another 2 bars onsite, (as well as the golf bar) including a lovely pool bar called "Blue Pam" (Communal pool) which can be used by anyone onsite (may be subject to a small charge if not eating or drinking.). Bingo, live performances, karaoke etc onsite.
Manolis bar stays open late, has a happy hour from 6 to 7, does snack food, tapas, has wifi, and hosts the sunday night quiz, bingo etc.
The pool bar is reopened now after a full refurbishment and is English run by Holly, with lovely comfortable sofas etc (also does food).
The golf bar cafe is great for a beer or coffee, of light snack/salad/Tapas. They do a nice breakfast too. Nice breeze down there and amazing views of the golf course and driving range (ideal to watch your kids practising while having a cerveza )
A nice community spirit with a excellent mix of Spanish, UK, Irish, Swedish, Dutch and Belgian residents and holiday owners.
The house has air conditioning/heating, however, that is not standard, and is payable if required, at an additional cost of £50 per week due to the very high cost of electricity in Spain. There are fans and ceiling fans, and we only ever use the air con occasionally in July/Aug as and when required. If you want the air con we can arrange separately. There are 2 gas heaters there to use in winter at your cost (bottled gas).
You will need to have a car here, despite it being only 15 minutes from Murcia San Javier airport, and 15 minutes to many beaches on the Mar Menor. This is not Ibiza, it is a quiet area, but Balsicas village is only 5 minutes by car and has lots of bars, shops and restaurants etc. if you don't have a car, the local Indian restaurant in Balsicas, will come and collect you, and drop you home free of charge if you are eating in any of their 2 lovely restaurants or their bar "tipsy"
Fantastic shopping close by with the amazing "Dos Mares" centre a short drive away, as well as the gorgeous "Los Alcaterez" being a 15 minute drive (fab bars, restaurants, markets and shopping, as well as amazing beaches)
If you are looking for a quiet holiday, with or without golf, then this is your man. The villa doesn't have a pool, but you can use the communal pool bar if and when you want and the Mar Menor and Med are only a short drive away. La Manga is only 30 minutes away in the car, as is Murcia City (with its water park/zoo). Cartagena is also about 25 minutes drive, as is Torreviaja. La Zenia (and it's amazing new shopping centre "la Zenia Boulevard" (has a Primark) and the Irish centre/Paddys point etc is about 20 minutes away.
This is our home from home. We hope you like it as much as we do. It's amazing for chilling out and enjoying the amazing Spanish sunshine.

Interaction with guests
Yes, we will be available by phone, via messenger (as the house has wifi) and we also have a key holder/cleaner on site that will be able to help you
Other things to note
Please note my comment about the downstairs window exits, so downstairs sleeping needs to be kept t people ok to use a ladder and are not infirm in any way.
- Under no circumstances should anything other than human waste or toilet paper be put in the 2 basement toilets, and it will break the pump and you will no longer be able to use them ensuite rooms
- any damages MUST be notified before you leave
- There are 2 bedrooms in the basement with high windows. One of these windows is the fire exit, and has a ladder and key for the bars. anyone unable to fit out the window should sleep in a bedroom upstairs
- Remember this is a quiet residential area. Excessive noise that invokes complaints from neighbours is not permitted for obvious reasons. (and may result in your deposit being lost)
