Kay & Richard McGarvey are a hard working couple, have two teenage sons and live in Lancashire, United Kingdom. They enjoy holidays abroad - particularly those in the sun! They pride themselves on offering clear and timely communication in an honest and open way. They have spent many memorable times in the area and regularly holiday at Villa Roma

Richard & Kay McGarvey purchased this apartment in 2005

Now in out 10th year our villa grows more and more popular. We originally chose La Mata as we believe it has something for everyone. Climate, Beach, Nature, Quiet or busy (your choice), cosmopolitan yet friendly (not a typically 'Brits in Spain' style holiday. Great for kids, families, couples and older people.

The description for Villa Roma is authentic. We are often copied by other less adequate advertisers and we take this as a compliment. There are no misleading statements such as 'near beach' or 'short walk to the shops' when in reality this is not the case. The reviews are 100% genuine guest reviews as opposed to owner supplied. In otherwords we let the reviews speak for themselves. Villa Roma 'does what is says on the tin' i.e. it provides fantastic holiday accomodation and facilities at highly reasonable rates.

OUR USPS: Caring customer service - before, during and after your hoiliday.

English speaking housekeepers.

Close to the beach.

No car needed.

Safe for kids.

Close to shops, restaurants, bars, beach and all other ameneties.

99% of our guests enjoy a trouble free holiday.However things don't always go according to plan - we guarantee to put any problems right as soon as is realistically possible.

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 17-Aug-2009
  • Date of Stay: Jul 2009
We have just returned from one of our best holidays todate.

The accomodation had a home from home feeling, with the sun and warmth added! It had everything that was necessary for a self catering family holiday. It was clean, spacious and well maintained.

We have received first class customer service from the owner, before and after our holiday.

The Boardwalk taking us into La Mata town was ideal and not too long! There are numerous restaurants to choose from, English, Indian, Chinese and Spanish! All Restaurant Staff treated us with respect and kindness. O'Briens, up the road, does a cracking English Breakfast!

It was lovely being able to sit out at night on the terrace and just 'chill'.

We felt no need to use a hire car because everything we wanted was in walking distance, with the beach being a 5 minute walk.

I could go on and on, but won't because I might not get the chance to rent this property out again!

I would recommend it to any one wanting a quiet, relaxing and comfortable holiday in the sun.

Can't wait for next year!
Recommended for:  Age 55+, Tourists without a Car, Families with Young Children
Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback. We work really hard to maintain our standards and it is so nice to receive such complimentatry and appreciative comments like these. We look forward to welcoming you and your family back next year!

Nice little apartment

  • 4 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 11-Apr-2014
  • Date of Stay: Mar 2014
The apartment was very clean and well decorated and the furniture in good condition except for the settee and chair, which I felt let the property down. However the double bed was extremely comfortable and if I could have taken it home in my suitcase I would have.I felt a few more instructions on how things work...the cooker top,for instance, would have been helpful, I have an old cooker with switches and so it took a day to realize how to turn the plates on!! Also the hair-dryer was found only by chance. The location was very quite and only 500 meters from a very sandy clean beach and restaurants, although they were not very lively, but it was out of season.
Overall we were pleased with our choice.
Owner's Response: We pride ourselves on practicalities as well as aesthetics/cosmetics and believe we have the correct balance. The settee actually converts to a large double bed. It is typical of the sort found in Spanish properties. Numerous guests with families welcome this facility.We provide copious instructions before guests arrive. We text guests on arrival to establish if they have any questions or need any assistance from us or our English speaking housekeepers. Instructions for all appliances can be found in the apartment. The hairdryer is located in the in the chest of drawers in the master bedroom so finding it has never proved a problem in 9 years of guest stays. The apartment is actually located c250 to 300 metres from the beach. The apartment is not advertised as being located in a lively area. This appeals to 99% of our new and returning guests.

A Wonderful winter break

  • 4 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 30-Mar-2014
  • Date of Stay: Jan 2014
We have recently returned from a lovely 8 week winter break in Villa Roma. We would recommend this rental which is very comfortable, close to beach with several bars and beachside cafes. It is within easy reach of two Supermarkets, and close to a number of very good eating houses. We have been taking a winter break in this area for the last 7 years and this has been the best we have rented The owners Kay and Richard were very helpful and we are looking forward to next year which we have already booked.

Excellent all round. We have visited La Mata a number of times in 4 different apartments and this is the best by some way. Location is ideal - a short walk from the beach (and the supermarket). Furnishing etc is very nice, and the apt was spotlessly clean in all areas. We were impressed that everything we might need had been thought of – right down to a wheelie bag for getting heavy bottles of water from the shops, useful for us as we don’t hire a car. There is a very nice pool literally across the patio, which itself is pleasant and roomy with sunloungers provided and table and chairs – so no real need even to leave the apartment if you want a lazy day. All windows and doors are very secure and a safe is provided. Kay and Richard were very well-organised from initial booking query onwards and very willing to help if we had any queries at any time. Highly recommended.
