About Richard and Carole

We currently live in Yorkshire and have 2 grown up children. I have run my own business and my wife teaches young children in our local school. We spend as much time as we can in La Cala as it has been our second home for many years.

Richard and Carole purchased this villa in 1981

Why Richard and Carole chose La Cala de Mijas

We have loved coming to La Cala for our holidays for many years and its convenience and safety has always been paramount for bringing up our 2 children as they were able to access the beach independently from an early age. The local people are so friendly and we feel very much part of the village community.

What makes this villa unique

We have enjoyed this property because of its stunning location and its near proximity to the beach. However with the availability of a car the whole of Andalucia is a fantastic place to explore from La Cala. You can be skiing in Sierra Nevada within 2 hours, Gibraltar is only an hour's drive and the city of Malaga, the birthplace of Picasso, with its fabulous architecture and history is only a 30 minute drive or a pleasant coastal train ride from Fuengirola.

My husband and I have just returned from a most enjoyable week in this lovely small town of La Cala. The house was spotlessly clean and had everything one could possibly require - 2 sparkling new bathrooms with excellent showers and a spacious, new, fully equipped kitchen. The bedrooms all had large wardrobes and plenty of drawer space too. To be honest, we didn't really use many of the facilities as the house is so well located within a few yards of the beach and the many bars and restaurants of the town that we spent most of our time out (apart from the 1 day when we had torrential rain for 12 hours!). We will be back soon. Jan and Bob Parr

Everything you could want in the perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

Booking this property was seamless and trouble free. We have been holidaying in and around La Cala for many years and this is right up there with the best of the properties we have used. Everything about it is spot on, fully equipped is an understatement. The beach is a one minute walk away, supermarkets and all the other shops five minutes walk.

Bars and restaurants aplenty on the doorstep you pay your money and take you choice.

You don't need a car, we used the taxi service offered by Richard and Carole and it was excellent.

To sum up, don't hesitate book up and have a great holiday. We will be back.

Nice property, poor location.

  • 3 of 5

Very clean well equipped town house spoilt by close proximity of rubbish bins with unsociable collection times (1:30 am, 4:00am, 7:00am) check out Google earth street view to see how close !!! La Call de Mijas is a lovely place.

Owner's Response: Dear Susan Thank you for your review. The location of our villa is central to all the amenities and at the hub of village life in La Cala, with the beach and boardwalk being only 65 metres away. The recycling containers are only a temporary measure as the remodelling of the road system is imminent. We apologise if this was an inconvenience to you and hope that you will stay with us again in the future. Best wishes Carole and Richard

Very good location

  • 4 of 5

Very good location just a few steps from the beach and great bars and restaurants.

Lovely house with modern kitchen and bathrooms.

The roof terrace was wonderful, very private (young children or those with mobility issues may find the steps up tricky)

Be aware the church opposite rings it's bells every 15 mins from 8am til midnight. They're loud inside the house and we don't miss them! However we understand double glazing is being installed.

Overall a lovely house (with a lovely neighbour) in a central location.

Number 7 Coronation Street

  • 3 of 5

As described but a lot smaller. Location is fantastic but 2 main issues. 1 shower room is downstairs and an adult cannot enter without severe difficulty indeed it is actually dangerous. Access to sun terrace is dangerous and needs a hand rail or else someone will have a very bad accident. On a more minor scale the whole place is very tired and needs refreshing. Parking with a large car is impossible as the frontage will only accommodate a small car and parking in the street is difficult as locals use it to access the beach.

Owner's Response: Dear Jeremy and Karen Thank you for your recent review. We were very surprised to read your comments especially following the very positive feedback from your e mails. We always welcome feedback from our guests and strive to improve our service to provide our clients with as enjoyable an experience as possible. Last summer the property was renovated with luxury new kitchen and bathrooms which other clients have commented very positively about. The downstairs bathroom is fitted with a standard corner entry shower at floor level with the main bathroom providing a very large walk in shower as advertised on the website. Parking in a popular village can always be challenging but there are lots of alternative car parks within a short walking distance of the villa. As we are situated so close to such a beautiful beach it is naturally popular with the locals and tourists alike. The advantage of course is that the beach, bars, banks, shops, supermarkets, restaurants and boardwalks are all within a few a short steps of the property and a car is not an essential requirement. We are pleased however that you will be considering booking with us in the future and that we may welcome you back to stay in our villa in La Cala. ___________________________________ Sent: 31 December 2016 17:21 To: Richard Asquith Subject: Re: La Cala De Mijas Hello Richard and Carole... Just to say that we thoroughly enjoyed our stay in your home. We left it how we would want our home to be left and trust it was acceptable? Indeed, we will certainly look to rent your home again. Happy New Year to you both. Jeremy and Karen

Excellent Loction

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much to Richard & Carole for the use of their Villa during our recent stay in La Cala de Mijas. This was our first time in La Cala, and we really enjoyed it. The house is so convenient to everything, beach, restaurants, market and the bus stop if you want to travel further. The house was clean and had everything you could possibly need. The shower was fantastic !! The communication with Richard while booking was excellent and smooth and I would have no hesitation in recommending this villa. Five adults stayed and had more than enough room, and the information booklet provided was great. Couldn't fault anything. Thanks again Richard & Carole.
