About Linda Murphy

We are Patrick and Linda Murphy and we are 68 years old and are now retired. We used to own a hotel in Cornwall, which we sold in 2000 and we moved to Spain shortly afterwards. When we were first in Spain we lived in Villa Higueras and now we live just five minutes away. This means we are always close by if required for any problem. We look after the villa personally to ensure that all guests are very comfortable.

Linda Murphy purchased this villa in 2001

Why Linda Murphy chose Mijas area

After we sold our hotel, we came to Fuengirola on holiday and liked the area so much we decided to buy a home here. 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 owner

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. Very well equipped.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the villa for over five weeks and waking up there everyday was like Christmas. We both loved everything about the villa and the location. A car is essential. The villa is very well equipped and became a home from home for us. The owners Pat & Linda are both lovely genuine people. They will help you in any way they can. They made every effort to make our stay there happy and memorable. We wanted to book for another 6 weeks in May / June 2017 but the villa is so popular they already have bookings for our chosen weeks. We can not recommend it enough. Try it. You won't regret it. We are definitely going back to the villa next year. Can't wait.

Excellent villa

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time at this spacious, well equipped villa. The pool was great and we used it every day of our stay. We also took advantage of the internet access and UK telly. There are also plenty of books and dvd's available if ou fancy a night in. Linda and Pat are not too far away and were available for any help and advice. The villa is a short distance from the major coastal road. Fuengirola is very close by and a favourite place for us to visit. Would recommend.

Ideal for a relaxing family holiday.

  • 5 of 5

It is the perfect place for a relaxing family holiday. The villa is spotlessly clean and roomy. The enclosed gardens made it perfectly safe for the younger members of the family.We didn't have a car but access to and from Fuengarola is easy and there are shops and bars within walking distance of the villa. The pool is perfect we didn't need to go anywhere else. Would definitely recommend this villa.

good clean villa with great communications

  • 4 of 5

Good clean villa well presented with great communications from the owners before, after and during our stay. We visited in the main winter month and did not get the most from the villa as you couldn't throw all the doors open and bring the outside in.

Well equipt, we enjoyed our stay in general

Owner's Response: Thanks Colin for your kind words. Really pleased you enjoyed your stay over Christmas and New Year. The weather was very kind to you with quite a bit of warm sunshine. A little bit different to a Spanish summer but still much better than UK in the winter I guess our winters are a bit like the UK summer!!! We hope to take you up on your offer and visit you in the summer when we visit our relatives in Norfolk. Thanks again.
