About the property

3 bedroom, 3 bathroom luxury villa on one level, totally secluded and private, only 150 meters to beach in a quiet upmarket urbinisation with golf course

This Lovely one level Private Villa which is bright and airy, is in a quiet cul de sac road of only 2 villas and is only 150 meters to the nearest beach, and adjacent to El Chaparral Golf. This is not your normal holiday rental, as it has everything you will need to make it home from home. The gardens (lawned and terraced) are mature, secluded,

secure and not overlooked with its' own private 8 x 4 pool

(not shared) with various terraces for sunbathing and "Al Fresco dining" with outside BBQ., Sun beds surrounding the pool, with garden sofas and chairs. There is even a little bar with bar stools, ideal for that evening aperitif. at night the garden looks terrific with the garden and pool lights on. Al the rooms are bright and light, and on the one level.

Only 2 mins drive to La Cala Village, which has been awarded Blue Flag for its' beautiful long stretching sandy beaches. Bus stop 1 minutes walk away, if you do not feel like driving. The villa is within the upmarket El Chaparral Golf area in a quiet urbanisation, was completely renovated to a very high modern standard, only a few years ago. The kitchen has every type of equipment you may need, including nespreso coffee machine, breadmaker, food processor, cupboards full of crockery, plastic glasses, etc, etc. We have even left you all our cookery books, It really is, home from home.

There is unlimited wifi in all rooms. (Fibre Optic)

Several restaurants, cafes, chemist only a short walk away. Regular bus service at bottom of road, will take you along the coast to Marbella, Fuengirola, etc. Malaga Airport only 20 mins. Gibraltar, is 1 hr 20mins drive

La Cala village which still retains its' Spanish charm' has 2 main supermarkets, several banks, and plenty of restaurants and modern style tapas bars to suit all budgets and tastes.

plus several new tapas bars and upmarket restaurants (Olivia's and Purasangre) recently opened in the village of La Cala.

Just completed is the new "Wooden board walk way" which starts from La Cala and runs directly parallel to the beach along to Cabopino Marina, it is thought that it may eventually extend to Marbella in one direction and Nerja in the other direction. Along this walk way there are many litltle restaurants to stop and take a break. We are quite amazed at how many people are already taking advantage of this walk way.

You can also cycle along and there are several places in La Cala where you can hire bikes, adults and children's.

All along the coastal road which streches for miles, there are various different beaches and beach restaurants.

Many places to visit, Ronda, Cordoba, Granada, Seville ar but some of the few places within one to two hours drive that you can visit in a day.

Or why not take a drive out to the countryside and enjoy a day by the lakes, quite stunning, where you can picnic and swim.

We prefer to speak with you directly in order for you not to incur any booking charges

About The Owner

My wife and I have lived on the Costa del Sol for many years, where I have now retired. . We love the life, the culture and the beauty of the country. We still spend our pleasure time exploring the countryside, together with running an extremely successful Classic Car Club.

This gives us to opportunity to find fabulous locations, and sample some of the best restaurants Andalucia has to offer. We are still exploring and would love to hear of anywhere you find which is interesting.

We would be more than happy to recommend places for you to explore and restaurants to visit.

Andalucia has so much to offer.

The Owner purchased this villa in 2005

Why The Owner chose Mijas area

We love the area of La Cala, it has so much to offer, but yet still remains a village.

There are many good restaurants and all within minutes drive.

Only 150 meters from our villa, are the beaches, which still remain unspoilt. There are little rock bays and you can walk right along the beach to La Cala, with a stopping point at the Sherrif Bar for a refreshment, or the new Playa Chaparral Beach Shack with It's lovely sandy beaches, you can hire parasols and beach beds here or have a sundowner in the evening. beaches here are extremely suitable for children,

The villa is only seconds by car to the main road, where you can get quickly to everywhere.

Fuengirola, Mijas Village, Marbella, Puerto Banus are all within easy access

The new 6 km boardwalk from La Cala along the sea front is just great. There are loads of places to stop, rest have a drink, snack, or meal. You can make a day out of it

What makes this villa unique

The villa is a very comfortable home and you will not feel as if you are staying in a typical rental property. It is left as a home for you to enjoy. The kitchen is full of every mod con, double oven , high power micro wave with triple function, convection and grill, etc, etc even all our cookery books are there should you feel like trying a new dish.

You have the peacefulness of where the villa is situated, plus the convenience that everything is only minutes away.

It is very close to the sea, the garden is extremely private.

This is unique as it is home from home with all the extra comforts that normal rentals do not have.

We are particularly keen to encourage families and mature persons as we do not wish to rent to groups of singles or students. It is not that type of property

We hand over our house in top condition and expect it to be returned to us in the same condition

We have fibre optic installed . We have also just installed a new 48 inch 4K UHID curved screen TV with 100's of TV channels


We know you will.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Probably one of the best holidays yet. Great Villa, everything was available to make our holiday a real "chill time"

Ended up hardly going anywere, but we did enjoy La Cala, just right, not too big, but it had everything there that we needed, loved the little shack beach bar at the beginning of La Cala, especially watching the sun going down. Great reggae music STEVEN LAMB

Thank you, Ian and Carol, great holiday, will be back next year.

Beautiful Villa

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a wonderful week in the beautiful Villa Margarita. We went as a family, my husband and I, son and daughter-in-law and our two young grandchildren aged 2 half and 15 months. From start to finish everything went smoothly, Ian and Carol are extremely attentive to any request you may have, that will make your stay enjoyable. We did sit one evening around the pool with a glass of wine trying to think of something that was missing, things that you would normally take for granted at home, you will find at Villa Margarita, it's has an abundance of everything you will need. The pool steps made it so easy for everyone to access the water, my granddaughter spent a lot of time just playing on them with her toys. We visited the beautiful town of Mijas, and had a wonderful late afternoon/evening Meal a Aroma Secret Garden Restaurant, a wonderful place, the small restaurant opens up at the back to an amazing outdoor dining garden, the children loved it, and best of all the food was delicious. 5 minutes drive away you will find the lovely town of La Cala, with an abundance of restaurants, catering for every taste, and a beautiful beach. We will definitely go back to the Beautiful Villa Margarita

Wonderful villa in a great location

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

We have recently returned from a fabulous two weeks in Villa Margarita. The villa was exactly as described. It was exceptionally well equipped, comfortable, very clean and well maintained.

The pool area was perfect for our children and there were plenty of sun loungers for the adults. There is a good sized table to eat at by the pool with a very handy outside fridge. We enjoyed having our breakfasts on the second patio which is located just behind the kitchen.

The villa is very private - it is not overlooked by any of the neighbouring villas. It was also easy to keep our small children within in it's boundaries as there are either high hedges or a high lockable gate around the perimeter.

We had wondered whether we would get some noise from the dual carriageway at the bottom of the hill but it was not a problem at all. We didn't notice any noise from the road at the villa and we actually found it really handy having such quick access by car to the places we visited. The nearby town of La Cala is just a few minutes by car and is great for restaurants, bars, shops and the beach.

One of the main aspects that made our holiday so enjoyable was the attitude of the owners, Ian and Carol. They could not have been more helpful, quickly addressing any issues we had (like locking ourselves out!) and giving us great restaurant and day trip recommendations. Thank you both. We hope to see you again some time.

Three generations of my family stayed at the villa for 2 weeks. Having a toddler with us meant that we self catered most evenings, which was so easy due to an American fridge/freezer and 2 ovens and a combi microwave. Unlike other places we have stayed, there was an abundance of crockery, cutlery, pots and pans - we weren't having to constantly wash up. The pool was fantastic and the grass and gardens were safe for the children to run around. The villa stayed nice and cool overnight and felt safe and secure, It was an easy short drive to the supermarket and beaches. I have already recommended the villa to my friends

lovely villa with great outdoor areas

  • 5 of 5

Even although it rained heavy for the first 5 days of our holiday, it didn't stop us from enjoying it. The villa is well equipped and lovely and the pool area has everything you could want. We didn't hire a car and used the local taxi service which was with us within minutes of calling. We walked into La Cala a few days which only took us about 20mins. The only thing I would say is that the villa could be doing with some more information in it. i.e local restaurant cards etc, as I say it rained heavy for the first 5 days so when phoning a taxi we needed to be taken straight there so as not to get soaked while looking for somewhere to eat, I just felt that a few cards would have given us an idea of where to start. I couldn't fault anything else and we had a great time

Winter sunshine all the way !

  • 5 of 5

Such a delightful villa and Ian & Carol were perfect hosts welcoming us and spending lots of time telling us where all the best tapas and restaurants were. This was a bit of a pre Christmas R&R treat, perfect ....an added bonus was to come home with lots of bargain Christmas presents too ! Sadly did not use the pool , it just looked so inviting as it was certainly warm enough but enjoyed several lunches on the terraces of beach and hillside restaurants enjoying the sunshine and warmth.
