I’m Gerry Flynn, the man behind Dream Spanish Homes. I moved to the Murcia Region of Spain in 2012, after a career as a property developer, investor and entrepreneur in Ireland.
After numerous holidays to the Mar Menor, I had fallen in love with the area and resolved to move to Los Alcázares, a growing coastal town on the Costa Cálida.
When I first got here, I bought a villa and a minibus. With that one minibus, I started making pickup runs to and from the nearby airports – San Javier and Alicante International – for holidaymakers and golf enthusiasts. I had a feeling the area was going to get more popular, but at the same time, I hoped Murcia, Mar Menor and the Costa Cálida didn’t become too overcrowded with holidaymakers.
Part of the charm of the coast, resorts and golf courses, is the area is relatively unknown. Cálida is not overrun with Brits on lads weekends and hen parties, which means those visiting or staying longer can enjoy a more authentic Spanish experience.
A Warm, Pleasant Spanish Paradise
Murcia is unique, as a tourist region, it attracts as many from Spain – both on holiday, retiring to the warm coast and playing golf – as it does from Northern Europe and further afield. With 320 days of sunshine, average temperatures around 20º, rolling fields – the region is known as Europe’s orchard – beautiful beaches, stunning golf courses, luxurious resorts, traditional villages, towns and fishing communities, Murcia is a paradise on the Mediterranean coast of Spain.
I wanted to put down roots with my wife, Debbie. Pretty soon, I had the opportunity to buy an Irish bar, The Celt, in a former fishing village turned resort, Los Alcázares. The Celt proved popular. Next, on the outskirts of the town, we opened The Shamrock, which we expanded and is thriving. We still do car rentals, with Mar Menor Car Hire providing cars for holidaymakers across the area.
All three businesses are established and thriving. Alongside these businesses, I decided to focus on the property market. I was receiving feedback from clients regarding poor customer service, giving me the impression that estate agents are only focused on making a sale and they rarely offer any customer aftercare.
