We stayed in Las Tortugas with 4 adults and 3 children.
Easy to get there, close to main roads and the motorway & the landlords sent a very precise route description. They were extremely helpful – did the initial shopping for us since we arrived late therefore no needs to get up early after a late arrival to shop for coffee and the usual other urgent supplies. The landlords were full of shopping ideas and other practical tips. We just asked and got it. They turned up each second day to do whatever was necessary to the pool, plants etc. Not to mention their fresh home made chocolate & banana cakes, the cinammon apple loafs and other flavors one could think off. Hmmmm….
Although it seemed initially that the house is in the middle of nowhere, well, it is, but…there are three supermarkets at just 15 mins and all easy to find. Again, precise indications given by the landlords. Beaches and nice places to visit at just 20 mins, and if you intend to have loud music: the neighbors won't complain as they live at least,some 500 meters up the road. No complaints when you had a our noisy late night water polo matches in the swimming pool.
The house is in a good shape and has everything from a dish washer, a washing machine and a toaster, a microwave and an enormous stove with 8 rings and two ovens….. I love cooking and I could find everything I needed in the citchen! All appliances are in good condition and function perfectly and are in good nick. Not to mention the amount of bathrooms and toilets and private rooms and sitting spaces in- & outside.
A large house, lots of space and and…. Even plenty of deck chairs, parasols and no clouds - a large dining and seating area in the shade and and… just don't forget your sun tan lotion. Even the anti slip floor in the swimming pool is worth mentioning.
We'd go there again if we had to…ha ha!

Superb house, full of charm and calm. Ideal for families or friends. Everyone will find their own space and have a dream of a stay.
The owners give you a great welcome are very kind and attentive - you really feel as if you are a part of the family.
It is very well equipped, the view is uninterrupted, the peace and quiet reassuring and restful and not far away there are a thousand and one things to do on the coast.
Each room is a triumph of comfort and taste. It is a dream house where we look forward to returning.

A very well equipped house, very enjoyable to stay in with lots of space! It is quite isolted (which is perfect when you are looking for peace and quiet) and has beautiful views. The owners welcomed us very warmly and were very helpful and concerned to make our stay as good and comfortable as possible.

Great Ausenanlage with pool, terrace, etc. relaxation. Prima equipment for toddlers and babies, this was thought of everything. Beautiful sand beach nearby, easily accessible by car.

Stayed at Las Tortugas in 2007 when it was a B/B and had a wonderful time, so just had to return in 2010 as self catering, to find we were still very much under its spell. So glad that we made the effort this time to tear ourselves away from all that peace and quiet (not to mention the superb pool), to explore more of the area. Highly recommend the Cabo de Gata National Park as we were captivated by its beautiful unspoilt beaches and charming seaside villages, especially Agua Amarga. Las Tortugas is one not to be missed. Accommodation excellent and the owners couldn't do enough for us and knew everything about the area.

We spent 12 days there and all was perfect... We were there so friendly welcomed. All was prepared for our unforgettable stay (laundry, cleaning,...). Jane had even bought for us some food and beverage because of our late arrival.
Another very important point is the size of the property & villa. 4 sleeping rooms including bathroom for 3 of them, large swimming pool, terrace, bbq, etc..

The very comfortable accommodation at Las Tortugas was just right for two families with young children. The pool was fabulous so it was very easy just to stay there and relax, but the beaches are excellent too. It's great to have the golf course nearby, and the Sierra Cabreras is a good daytrip. I loved going to the market for fresh local vegetables and bread. There's a barbecue and the kitchen is well-equipped for preparing family meals. Las Tortugas is highly recommended!

We spent two superb weeks at Las Tortugas! The house is exactly as the photos: agreeable, spacious, full of light and very well equipped. The swimming pool was impeccably maintained and always at a good temperature. The house is in a quiet situation away from any noise and so very relazing. We had a lovely welcome from our charming hosts, Jane & Terry. They had even brought what we needed to sustain us on our arrival (home made bread and jams, water, eggs...) You can go there with your eyes shut, you will not be disappointed!
Splendid, comfortable house which is situated exactly as described by the owner: quiet, superb view, just a few kilometres from the sea. On top of that Jane and Terry are very nice and helpful. We will certainly be back!!

"Nous avons été particulièrement ravis de séjourner 2 semaines dans cette grande et jolie maison très bien équipée et très fonctionnelle. L'environnement est très calme et bien que la propriété soit isolée ce que nous souhaitions, golf, plages et courses sont à proximité. L'accueil des propriétaires Jane et Terry est charmant et nous serions très heureux de les retrouver une autre année..
