About Patrick Fitzgerald

Hi I'm Patrick originally from Dublin, now living in Staffordshire, England with my wife Emma. We have owned the apartment in La Cala for 11years and enjoy relaxing breaks ourselves in La Cala through out the year. We love the fact that when we get to La Cala we don't need a car as everything is in walking distance. Our contact Chrissie living in Spain, originally from Limrick looks after our apartment and can arrange collection from and to airport if required for €40 approx. La Cala is a beautiful tranquil Spanish village with everything you need for a relaxing holiday. Over the last few years we have many clients returning for a second or even third stay they likes our apt and location so much. We continue to maintain the apt to a high standard and have fitted brand new aircon this year

Patrick Fitzgerald purchased this apartment in 2004

Lovely stay

  • 5 of 5

A lovely bright apartment with a sunny terrace in the mornings. This apartment has everything you need for your stay in La Cala. It is close to restaurants, bars etc & minutes from the beach.

It was spotlessly clean & had a very comfy bed with loads of extra pillows (always a plus in my book)

A very enjoyable stay

Hope you have a successful season ahead

Great Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Great apartment. Everything you need including great location which was good for us because we had two days rain but we're still able to venture out for coffee, lunch or dinner at the many establishments within close proximity. Also the full Sky package on the Tele was great in view of the weather

Have rented several times before and would say this the best apartment by far. Also Patrick the owner could not be more obliging and helpful

Whilst the front door is close to motorway the apartment itself is at the back of the building and very quiet

There is a Lidl just opposite the front door - to get to it means walking over an overpass but no problem and to get a good stocked supermarket right on the doorstep was great.

Also thanks to Paul who picked us up and took us back to the airport

Only downside is that we can't get this apartment when we would like in 2017 as full booked. That says it all!

Thanks again Patrick hope to get back sometime soon

Fantastic Apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I rented this apartment for 1 week in August and couldn't fault anything.

Patrick had arranged for Chrissie to meet us at the apartment to give us keys etc, there were no issues and Chrissie was very helpful.

The apartment was very well equipped with everything you would have if it was your own. Vast amount of kitchen/cooking utensils, microwave etc. The washing machine was well used :-) Loved having all the sky TV channels, excellent if you are football fans like us. It really did feel like home from home.

The location of the apartment was perfect, only a 2 minute walk to the beach and within walking distance of all the bars and restaurants. If you like an early morning coffee, there is a lovely bakery - La canasta just around the corner.

All in all, I would definitely not hesitate in recommending this apartment and will most certainly return in the future.

Great Location and Beautiful and comfortable Apart

  • 5 of 5

Second stay at this lovely apartment. It is in a lovely peaceful setting overlooking the garden and the pool. The balcony is spacious and a great place to eat breakfast al fresco, it was also really well equipped for cooking in and creating a lovely atmosphere for evening dining too. Lovely lighting, great kitchen equipment and air con. You can feel totally relaxed here. The bed is huge and comfortable, a great night's sleep is very important to us on holiday and it is almost better than being at home for sleep. Everything is within easy walking distance and some beautiful walks to be had along the beach and the boardwalk. Chrissy and Paul looked after us and are very welcoming, good to know they are there on hand and secure and reliable airport pick up. We will be back. Sheila & Frank stayed June/July 2016.

Excellent home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This apartment really is like a home from home in the sun! The description fits exactly with what was presented in the description. It is spotlessly clean and has everything you need, even salt,pepper and cleaning products. I loved the addition of the pull along shopping trolley for our trips to Lidl!!

La Cala itself is a lovely cosmopolitan little town and eating out was of a very high standard. We loved Olivo and Konfusionnn especially.

We will definitely return to La Cala and would not hesitate to use Patrick's apartment again.

Special thanks to Paul for rescuing us when I locked us out on the balcony!! And also for arranging our airport transfers straight to the door.

Graeme and Debbie

I have visited La Cala before but never stayed there and thought it would be a great town for an ideal getaway and we were not disappointed. We chose to stay at La Cala as we did not want to hire a car and we knew everything we needed for a short break was on the doorstep. The apartment was just what we needed. Very handy to everything. It had everything we needed in a central location. We used both the bedroom and the sofabed in the living room and there was plenty of space. Also plenty of bedlinen and towels. Patrick the owner asked Paul who looks after the apartment to get in touch with us about transfers to and from the airport which was brilliant and Paul was on hand if there were any problems. The beach is so close and the walkway along the coast is fantastic. I will be back, soon hopefully.
