Property type villa

About the property

3 bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms (2 ensuite), large lounge, kitchen, on 1100 sq m of land

Detached and private gated villa on own land.Three bedrooms with air con, three bathrooms (2 ensuite), Large lounge/ dining room, fully equipped kitchen including dishwasher, balcony with barbecue, garage, all on 1100 sq m plot. Out side washing machine. Rear shaded tearrace. Large 9m x 5m maintained pool. Quiet location but only 2mins drive (10 mins walk) to beach and busy prom. Can sleep 8 in 3 bedrooms (Rear bedroom has single/bunk beds and double sofabed and can be used as childrens or family room-sleeps 4). Nearest neighbours 300m so has a rural feel.

Includes high speed Wi-fi.

We love Mojacar and have had many great family holidays in La Casita over the years. When the opportunity arose for us to buy another larger family property nearby we jumped at the chance, hence the reason we are now renting out La Casita.

The location is quiet and tranquil yet 2 mins drive and 10 minutes walk from the seafront (Mojacar Playa). The seafront is about 7 km long and there are beach bars, cafes and restaurants, yet it still remains unspoiled. We have often come back to the villa after a night out and had a mini party of our own on the balcony as the nearest neighbour is 300m away! The resort itself is very much family orientated and is very busy with spanish in the peak season.

There are three lanes leading to various parts of Mojacar,so very conveinient for going out for the evening and leaving the car at the end of one of the lanes.

The old town (Mojacar Pueblo) is perched high on the hill looking down on 7kms of beaches. Mojacar is sandwiched between the mountains of the Sierra Cabrera and the Mediterranean sea.The old town is captivating with its whitewashed ancient buildings, labyrinth of winding cobbled streets, alleys and courtyards and there are magnificent views to the mountains, sea and the Taberna desert.

Mojacar remains true to its Moorish legacy with its old Moorish fortress (or Santa Maria church as it is now) and the architecture of the area still evokes an Arabic aura. Under a law passed in 1987, the Arab architecture here will be preserved for posterity. There are small cafes bars, retsuarants and shops in the Pueblo.

For golfers we have 5 golf courses within a 20 min drive.

Marina golf. 5 mins drive

Macenas. 15 mins drive

Valle de este 20 mins drive

Desert Springs 20 mins drive

Cortijo Grande 20 mins drive

Perfect family holiday villa in lovely location

  • 5 of 5

As a family of 5 adults and our 18 month old granddaughter we had a wonderful 2 week stay at Terry and Fran’s fantastic villa La Casita in the hills above Mojacar Playa in June 2018. The villa had everything we had hoped for and more and the icing on the cake was the incredible pool where were able to relax in complete privacy and enjoy the peace and quiet .At the same time we were within 3 minutes drive 12 minute walk from the beach and playa area with its bars and restaurants.

The welcome pack was fantastic and having contacted Terry he had provided both a cot and high chair for our little one which was brilliant.

The three bathrooms gave us all our own individual facilities and the bedrooms were all spacious with excellent air con . We were there during the first 2 weeks of the World Cup and the satellite TV offering all the UK channels and Sky was a huge bonus allowing us to enjoy a combination of al fresco dining at the villa whilst not missing the games !!!!!!( Well that’s how the male members of the party sold it )😀?

There is tonnes of really helpful info in the Villa on where to go and what to do in the area and we took a number of recommendations for bars and restaurants both in the Playa and in the Pueblo and were not disappointed once. Our favourite venue was El Patio a bar restaurant with an old fashioned hippy feel right on the beach and close to the end of the lane which you walk / drive down from the Villa ( you can park your car at the bottom of the track and walk the short distance along the Playa which avoids having to worry about finding parking spaces )

We also found a hidden gem of aTapas restaurant called Marcelo s

We loved the fact that Mojacar is not spoilt with high rise hotels and tacky package holiday style amenities . The whole area remains very traditional with moorish architecture predominant and a significant proportion of the tourists were Spanish .However every type of restaurant bar and entertainment venue was available to suit all tastes.

So overall a fantastic property and holiday location and somewhere we all agreed we would return to .

Thanks Terry for all your help both before and during our stay .

Beautiful house close to the beach but away from the crowds

  • 5 of 5

We have been traveling to Spain for 30 years and this is one of the best house rentals that we’ve had. After very long road trip we were greeted with a great welcome basket full of food and drink and everything we needed to relax and enjoy the property. The owner was very helpful and if we had any questions or needs he would get back to us immediately. The house is located close enough to the beach to walk or drive on a country road and start sunbathing. The pool was very nice and easily accessible for both elderly people as well as younger children. Mojácar Playa Offers many activities and find restaurants to have dinner

A lovely place to chill, entertain and enjoy the sun

  • 5 of 5

It was an unexpected surprise to get such a great welome pack and shows the attention to detail which the owners have towards their guests. Our stay at La Casita was great as a result. Our group was mixed- aged but we all were able to enjoy the space, facilities and location of the villa. The pool is as great as the photo suggests and the air con a blessed and quick relief. I would thoroughly recommend this villa for a great holiday.

Great time at La Casita

  • 5 of 5

Mojácar has been our holiday destination for the last 15 years, but this year has been different, and better, in many ways. We all were delighted with our rental choice, as La Casita has everything one could need for a perfect holiday: tidy, well-equipped, fantastic swimming pool, strategic location (it´s both near and far from the ambient zone, if you know what I mean), and a very peaceful environment.

The owners are always close and ready to help, should any problem arose, but non invasive at all. And the maintenance (garden, swimming pool, linen, etc) is perfect.

We are particularly grateful to the owner for letting our dog into the property. This is rather uncommon here in Spain, specially in a so well maintained house.

I know well that reviews are more reliable when some negative aspects are mentioned. I´m sorry, I couldn't find one!. But, yes, my advices to travellers are:

1. Don' t trust the´s even better than that!!!

2. I do NOT recommend this property for the second half of June (´s our holiday time, you know)

We all (wife, daughter, dog and myself) certainly look forward to come back next year.

Book now and enjoy - beyond great!

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic villa! The welcome pack was an unexpected plus and we immediately felt at home and into our holiday - thanks Fran and Terry. The facilities inside the villa are great- anything you would want or need for a stay - whether it be for a week or a month. Eating out in the evening on the terrace, snacking from the BBQ dipping into the pool to chill/cool off - what is not to like? The villa's secluded position, just a few of minutes drive from the beaches/shops, means you enjoy the seaside location but feel that you are in the countryside/mountains - stunning!

The locals are helpful and welcoming, pointing us to idyllic bars and bays if we fancied a day out touring or going into the old town of Mojaca for a lovely evening meal or enjoying the local market. Have already booked again for next year - can't wait.

Can't thank you guys enough

Mojacar is in Almería, a province of southern Spain. It is bordered by the provinces of Granada, Murcia, and the Mediterranean Sea. Europe's only desert is found in Almería, and is part of the National Park of Sierra Nevada (in the Sierra Nevada mountain range), which it shares with Granada province.

Almeria shares the title of the town with the most hours of sun a year along with Athens and Siracusa -- more than 300 days a year! The temperature of its seawater is warmer in winter than its air temperature making swimming an all year round enjoyable activity. The over all-annual average temperature exceeds 18c

The desert landscape and climate that characterizes part of the province have made it an ideal setting for Western films, especially during the 1960s. Because of the demand for these locations, quite a number of Western towns were built near the Desert of Tabernas. Films such as The Good, the Bad and the Ugly and A Fistful of Dollars were shot here. Large sections of Lawrence of Arabia and Patton were shot there as well.

Mojacar Playa with its sandy beaches, stretches for miles beneath the ancient village of Mojacar extending as far as the eye can see in both directions. New developments include restaurants, bars, shops, villas and apartments all tastefully built in keeping with the traditions of the area. Surrounded by the sea on one side and the magnificent mountains of the Sierra Cabrera to the rear Mojacar paints an enchanting picture captured many times by local and visiting artists alike.

The medium yearly temperature in Mojacar is around 20 °C. Winter is practically nonexistent, it passes as a long autumn or spring.Mojacar Village (the Peublo) is built in a Moorish style and has many narrow lanes and cobbled streets etc adding to its enchantment

Mojacar Playa is becoming an increasingly popular and sophisticated resort.

There is a local water park 20 mins drive or a dedicated bus will take you there :

Keen golfer?

The area around Mojacar in the Northern part of Almeria offers 5 courses: The Desert Springs Golf Course, The Valle del Este Golf Resort, Marina Golf Macenas Golf and Cortijo Grande. Please email me for further details...

Mojacar is aptly named and famous throughout Spain as El Rincon del Embrujo, 'The Corner of Enchantment'.

Mojacar Beach enforces building restrictions, which has ensured the charm of the area and a steady growth of international investors giving Mojacar a cosmopolitan atmosphere. The beach is 17 kilometres long in total, a large part of which is a designated area of natural beauty. Only 7 kilometres is developed and is so unspoiled that within this stretch there are no less than 3 Blue European Flag Awards on the beaches for cleanliness. Mojacar is a unique blend of mountains and valley areas sheltering the beach and the sea. Every modern convenience is to be found here as well as a sports facility, sailing, fishing and golf, just to mention a few.

There are many fiestas to delight visitors.

Open street markets provide the weekly highspot of every town and village in Almeria, and attract colourful merchants selling clothes, leather goods, ceramics, household goods etc, a pastiche of colour and noise. There is a weekly market in Mojacar Pueblo and a sunday 'flea market'.


Garrucha, - A thriving fishing port and Marina of where just before sunset each day the boats return to harbour to unload and auction off their catches at the quayside, why not experience this colourful spectacle, and the follow it up with a meal in one of the numerous fish restaurants in the village.

Aguilas - with its 16th century castle overlooking the bay and weekly market.
