About David Ainscough

I am David Ainscough and I am the property manager for the villa on behalf of Linda and Pat. Unfortunately Linda’s elderly mother in Uk is very unwell and they have asked me to look after the property for them. Nothing in the villa has changed except I will be looking after the property and guests. Myself and my wife Karen have lived in Spain for a while now and my wife Karen’s parents have lived here for 17 years. I used to be a chartered accountant and am now having a complete change of direction in my life which hopefully will be far less stressful and much more enjoyable. I assure all guests that I will look after them personally to ensure they are comfortable in the same way as Linda and Pat have always done.

Why David Ainscough chose Mijas

We chose this area to make our new home because we have spent so much time year over the years when visiting Karen’s parents and we just love the area. We like it because there is so much nearby with lots of shops, restaurants, sandy beaches. Fuengirola is also very central to visit lots of interesting places on the Costa del Sol.

What makes this villa unique

When you stay at Villa Higueras we make sure that the villa is a place that you always feel at home in. We always keep an eye on things so that everything is just what our guests want, which is why we have installed the wireless internet as we felt it was an important thing to have for people on holiday to keep in touch with both family and business etc. The villa is very conveniently located as it is quiet and private but also a short drive to shops, beaches and restaurants.

As we live so close we look after everything personally and should our guests have any problems we can be there within 5 mins to help in any way we can.

The villa is always kept up to date with appliances and we have just put in a new fridge and a flat screen television with UK television via satellite.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Debi (stayed in August 2012)

Just had a perfect holiday at Villa Higueras. The villa is so homely and very well cared for and is presented to a very high standard. Linda and Pat are only a phone call away and go above and beyond to make sure there guests have the perfect holiday nothing is too much trouble I would certainly recommend this villa.

Mark (stayed in April 2012)

This was a great villa for a family of six adults and Linda and Patrick really made us feel welcome from our initial contact all the way through to our departure. I've already recommended the villa to friends.

Fantastic Villa set in a lovely garden with everything you need to help you feel at home.

  • 5 of 5

The villa has everything you need to feel at home. Set in a lovely garden with a nice family pool and pool table. Plenty of outdoor furniture to enable you to cook, eat and relax in the sun. Fabulous local supermarkets selling amazing fish.

Good sized bedrooms, nice open plan living area and kitchen with ample utensils etc, use of dishwasher and washing machine.

David the owner went out of his way to help us. He agreed to accept essential medical equipment and supplies for my husband. He liaised directly with the medical company and agreed to take the equipment 1 week prior to our arrival and to keep it at the villa for 3 days after we left. The equipment took up a substantial amount of room and David organised for extra help to take it in and store it at the villa, all at no extra cost to us.

Nothing was too much trouble for him and he was on hand if we needed him.

We love the area and have been going for years. There is loads to do and see within a short drive and I would recommend the butterfly park about 15 mins drive from the villa. If you have children both tivoli world and the aqua park are a must. If you enjoy tapas head to the back streets of Fuengirola where you will find bars selling tapas for a couple of euros and are amazing.

All in all a lovely villa in a lovely area.

Glad you found the backstreet tapas places, I always look for where there is a queue of locals. Thanks for leaving the Villa in the spotless condition you did, would love to welcome you back. Cheers David

Lovely Villa

  • 3 of 5

I stayed here with my wife, and my brother and his wife, the first week of October 2017. The villa is well equiped and well laid out. The TV and internet worked well which is a bonus for Spain! We did have a slight issue with the oven overheating but the owner is aware and everything else worked fine. The pool is ample for a villa of this size.

It may have been the time of year, or maybe the high hedge and surrounding un-developed land, but we did have a problem with insect bites. I would recommend taking repellants and ensuring the room plug-in repellants are working.

A car is absolutely essential as there are no facilities within easy walking distance. My reason for only giving 3 stars is the access. The description of the villa claims it to be suitable for the elderly and infirm however, although the villa itself is, the access drive is extremely steep and with it being gated requires very careful handbrake control when exiting. This drive would be impossible for the elderly or infirm to walk up.

Owner's Response: Hi Terry, Thanks for taking the time to write a review of your experience during your trip. Foe sure they are helpful to potential visitors. Obviously I'm delighted you had a good time. I agree a car or taxis are required. I would mention that although the path to the villa is steep, there is no need to walk it the 2 reserved car parking spaces are directly outside the villa and cut out the hill completely. I hope you welcome you back at some point in the future. Cheers David

The nearest beaches are at Fuengirola and Torreblanca both being with easy reach of approx 7 minute by car. Fuengirola has approx 5 miles of beaches with many sunloungers provided. There are numerous restaurants on the seafront. The seafront is perfect for an evening stroll during the summer months as there are market stalls during the peak season and there is a vast choice of restaurants and bars.


Malaga is the nearest airport and is 15 minute drive. Gibraltar airport is just over an hours drive. If you decide to take a ferry, both Santander and Bilbao are approx 10 hours drive.


Mijas is a lovely Spanish village, it is approx 10 minute drive and definitely worth a visit. Puerto Banus which is a well know port is approx 30 minute drive. Gibraltar is approx 1 hours drive and is excellent for getting tax free products. Granada is a lovely place to visit. It takes between 1-2 hours to get there and you can visit the Alhambra Palace and also the ski resort of Sierra Nevada.

Further Details:

Within 5 minutes drive there are various shops, supermarkets, bars, restaurants, pharmacy, banks etc. The Myramar shopping mall which has a huge variety of shops is just a 7 minute drive. There is also in this shopping mall several cinema screens which show English films. A recent addition to this shopping mall is Primark which has proved to be very popular.
