About Spanish Dream Property

About us... Spanish Dream Property is a family run business, based in Norfolk but able to assist clients throughout the UK and Ireland. We ourselves own a second home in Spain and have family who have lived there for many years. We have therefore been travelling to and from Spain for over 2 decades. Over the years we have watched the property market in Spain and seen many changes. We have seen the rise, and thankfully the fall of mass market promotions companies who used tactics to sell property which many view as detrimental to the image of Spanish property marketing. We have followed the fortunes of family and friends who have 'made the move' and met many other second home owners. We have witnessed the consequences of good and not so good decision making and, hopefully, learnt from those situations and can help others avoid potential pitfalls. Setting up Spanish Dream Property was a natural progression in our lives. We already owned our own Spanish property, had many contacts in different trades in Spain, Bev had experience in property finding in the UK, already ran a successful business and has written for a UK based Spanish magazine. Dave is a regular contributor to Spanish forums and stays in contact with property professionals about the overseas market and current trends. Friends and 'friends of friends' were already approaching us for advice on the Spanish market. We successfully rent out our home in Spain to holiday makers, www.house-by-the-pool.com, and again have been asked by other owners for tips and advice. The bringing together of these existing skills led to the setting up of Spanish Dream Property. We then sought to find Spanish based partners with excellent track records to work alongside to bring our clients the best possible service. Some property finding companies are based in Spain, which means you have to go there first to do your research. As we are based in the UK you avoid costly phone calls and extra trips, as we do the phoning and stay in contact with all the various professionals in Spain that you will need during the purchase process. For those in the East Anglia region we can offer a 'home visit' to discuss your options and suitable properties. For those further afield we are just a click or call away. We are happy to help you refine your search through discussing your personal needs and wishes so that when you go to Spain our partners there know exactly which properties from our portfolio could fulfil your dreams. Most looking to purchase a property in Spain have full-time jobs and families here in the UK and cannot make unlimited costly visits to research the market. Here at Spanish Dream Property we recognise that you are busy and time is valuable so we do not want to waste your time in promoting areas and property that do not meet your requirements. We work for YOU, not the vendor, so what you want matters. We know how frustrating it can be to be taken to places that could never be classified as fitting your requirements so we work hard to understand your dream. If you are looking to purchase a second home we understand the need to find reliable and trustworthy people to check on your home when you are not there and even oversee tradesmen if work or decorating etc is done in your absence. If you are making a permanent move then you may need additional information on schools, work, the health system and the ex-pat community. Those looking purely for an investment opportunity have different needs again, as for you the market trends and future potential are vital to understand. Take a look through our portfolio of properties, which is regularly up-dated. If you can't find what you are seeking then please call us and we will seek to find it for you. Whatever your dream we will work hard to find the right home for you because your dream matters.

House By The Pool

 

 

2051We are Dave and Bev Townsend.  We purchased our house in 2006 as our Silver Wedding Annivsary present to eachother and it is ours and our family’s second home.  We have had many enjoyable times there and hope you will enjoy your stay too.

Our links with Spain go back many years, in Bev’s case to the 1960’s.  Her Grandfather, step-Grandma, Aunt, Uncle and parents all retired to Spain.  Dave was introduced to Spain as a result of these family links and it was a natural progression to buy our own property when the time was right.
House by the Pool (1)

House by the pool, beach and golf is in Playa Flamenca in the Orihuela Costa, south Costa Blanca, Spain. Approximately 45 minutes drive south of Alicante Airport and 20 minutes drive north of Murcia Airport. Sleeps 6-8 people.

The house is registered with Ministry of Tourism for the Alicante region, registration number VT-442999-A.
The fully air conditioned quad house is on a small residential community with two communal swimming pools. The terraces overlook one pool in a gated garden. It has 3 bedrooms, a shower room, a bathroom, lounge-diner and an american kitchen. The terrace has seating, tables and sun shade for enjoying a morning coffee or an evening glass of wine in the Spanish sunshine. Or why not enjoy a family barbecue.
The location means that you are not dependant upon having a hire car as there are plenty of restaurants, bars and shops within walking distance. The local beaches are under a mile away and you can do your daily shopping at the excellent supermarket on your way back to your holiday villa. In the evening you can stroll to the local Irish Pub or Chinese restaurant. On Saturdays there is a very large street market. La Zenia Boulevard shopping complex, boasting 150 shops, bars and restaurants plus play area and bowling alley, is under 15 minutes walk from the house.
The Master bedroom has a King size bed and private balcony, and there are 2 twin rooms and two single folding beds, so plenty of accommodation for family holidays. The large solarium, with an outside lounge and sun loungers, has a sea view of the Med.
All rooms have air conditioning, ceiling fans and heating making it suitable for your summer holiday, winter sun holiday or even a long weekend break.
Wifi is included in the rental.  All utilities also included.
Cotton bed sheets are provided. Towels for use in the house are supplied but please bring your own towels for use at the pool and beach.
The house is fully double glazed and has security grills on all windows and lockable rejas on all doors. The terrace gate is also lockable.
If you do hire a car, parking is off road on the private driveway next to the house. A short drive will take you past groves of oranges, lemons and olives to golf courses, the salt lakes, cave houses or water park.

“Minor sea” or “Smaller Sea” Mar Menor

Mar Menor

Small sea

The Mar Menor means ‘minor (or smaller) sea’.  It isn’t a sea at all, it’s a lagoon, located on the northern stretch of the Murcian coast, just below the border with Alicante.  The lagoon is separated from the Mediterranean Sea by a spit of land 22km long with several breaks where it opens onto the Med.  The spit is between 100m and 1200m wide, so in places the two ‘seas’ lap at beaches the both sides of the road!  The road runs most of the length starting at the southern end and a ferry links the northern point of the spit to Santiago de la Ribera on the mainland side.  Roughly triangular in shape it covers 170km2 with 5 small islands within the lagoon and a total of 70km of coastline.

Generally, the water within the lagoon is several degrees warmer than the Med, making it a popular place for swimming and water sports all year.  At the northern point by San Pedro del Pinatar are the famous mud baths and salt flats.  The salt flats and shallow lakes are noted for their importance to nature and protected by national park status. This area records some of the mildest winter temperatures in Spain.

beach22

Sadly in 2016 the beaches of the Mar Menor lost their Blue Flags, but it hasn’t slowed the rising popularity of the area or the beaches, and the local authorities are working hard to ‘clean up’ the quality of the water and regain their European Blue Flags.

The most popular resorts are (from north to south) San Pedro de Pinatar and Lo Pagan, Santiago de la Ribera, Los Narejos and Los Alcazares, Los Urrutias, Estrella del Mar, Los Nietos, Mar de Cristal and Playa Honda.
