About Richard & Kay McGarvey

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

Why Richard & Kay McGarvey chose La Mata

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.

What makes this apartment unique

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.

La Mata 09

  • 5 out of 5
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!

Great Apartment, Fab Location, Modern Facilities

  • 5 out of 5
We have stayed in La Mata for several years now and this apartment far out ways the others that we have stayed in. It is very clean, offering modern facilities and is in a great location. We are a family of six and the apartment provided plenty of space for us all, we enjoyed eating in, using the cooking facilities and gas bbq, but also enjoyed the stroll along the boardwalk to use the many restaurants on offer. The supermarket is a ten minute walk away and provides everything that you may need. The apartment opens out onto the swimming pool and is only a five minute walk from the beach.

The owners provided great communication and we would definitely recommend this apartment to friends and family.

Great apartment, modern facilities in fab location

  • 5 out of 5
We have stayed in this area for several years now and this apartment far out ways any other we have stayed in. It is immaculately clean with modern facilities making it a pleasure to holiday in, we ate in on many occasions using the full size cooker and gas bbq but also enjoyed the evening strolls along the boardwalk to the local restaurants and bars. The golden sandy beach is a five minute walk away and although busy at times has plenty of room to play with the kids or sit and sip sangria and the like. We are a family of six so used the double sofa bed in the lounge and had plenty of room. The pool is right outside the gate and is warm and clean....we had a great holiday here with excellent communication from the owners.

Perfect summer break!

  • 5 out of 5
I have just returned from my first visit to Villa Roma and La Mata. I was not disappointed! The apartment was everything it was described as and more! It was clean, well maintained and contained everything needed for a self catering holiday. It has a home from home feel and it's clear to see it is well cared for by it's owners. The terrace area was perfect for early morning coffee in the sunshine and chilling in the evening. The pool and surrounding area to the apartment is very well kept and tidy and it is very quiet and peaceful morning and night! The location of the apartment could not of been better.. 5 minute walking distance to a beautiful long sandy beach and typical Spanish cafés and resturants along the boardwalk. Both La Mata town and a Supermarket were in walking distance so we felt no need to hire a car. Both before and after my holiday, I recieved excellent customer service from the owners Richard and Kay, who provided me with all the information and reccomedations I would need for my stay.

La Mata is a stunning destination I would highly recommend to anyone wanting the 'ultimate chill holiday.' It is a quiet town, not the typical 'brits in Spain' destination which I loved. The town retains it's Spanish charm with a characteristic square which offers cafés and resturants with a range of different cuisines. Along the beach there is a boardwalk which also has resturants - so there is plenty of variety for wining and dining. Vela beach was a particular favourite, or for seafood lovers out there I recommend barlovento!!

Torrevieja is close by which has a lovely marina. It cost us 1.30 euro on the bus and 10 euros in a taxi back - so it's cheap enough to visit even without a car

My only disappointment was that I didn't book 2 weeks!!!! I will definitley be returning next year and for longer! It was the perfect summer holiday!

Great holiday, excellent apartment

  • 5 out of 5
Just returned from 10 days here and can confirm the apartment is as good as prev reviews say it is. We have 2 small children (3 and 5) and they loved it. Pool right outside the door which is big and gets the sun all day, great beach with shallow sea minutes away and very easy for buses, supermarket etc. Kay was very helpful throughout and responded to all our queries and returned the deposit promptly. This is a very quiet complex and we had the pool virtually to ourselves for the whole stay. La Mata is quite a quiet town but there are nice restuarants and bars and the market on Wednesday is a must! We headed up the hill from the apartment to O'Briens and the strip of restuarants nearby quite often and a nice meal and good atmosphere is guaranteed.
The apartment has everything we needed and the utility area at the back is very handy for drying closes, storing suitcases, buckets and spades etc. Very safe for the kids too, with all windows locked, barred and shuttered.
If you are looking for a Benidorm/Torremolinos type of place, this isn't it. Its a lovely, relaxing location with everything you need. La Mata with its typically Spanish feel is one way and bigger, more developed Torrevieja the other.
Couldn't fault our holiday at all and we will definitely be back!
Thanks again to Kay and Richard

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review Antony - your kind words make it all worthwhile. If I was asking someone to do a write up about Villa Roma entitled "it does what it says on the tin" this would nail it! The most important thing is that you and your family enjoyed it as much as ours have for the last 9 years. Thank you for being great guests to deal with - we appreciate the way you left the apartment when you vacated (and so do the housekeepers!). We wish you well and you are welcome to come back anytime - even if its just for a few days break. Enjoy the rest of Summer 2014. Richard & Kay
