About Margaret McAulay

Hi, I'm Margaret. I'm originally from Scotland but now live in the beautiful south west of England.

I've worked in banking for nearly 30 years and in my spare time like to keep fit, travel and socialise with friends and family.

Margaret McAulay purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Margaret McAulay chose Mijas area

We searched along the coast of Andalusia for months looking for the right apartment in the right place. One day whilst out viewing we stopped by chance in the lovely town of La Cala for lunch........our search was over!

What makes this apartment unique

La Cala has something for everyone.......beautiful blue flag beaches, a coastal walkway stretching almost 6 Km linking you with all the other lovely towns along the Andalusian coast, restaurants that serve everything from tapas, traditional Spanish cuisine, International cuisine to fine dining. the town is very child friendly with a great children's playground and also a wooden Pirate Ship and playground located directly on and beside the beach.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Lovely apartment

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely stay at the apartment which is ideally situated, just a short walk to the small town with plenty of places to eat.

Well equipped with all that you need for a holiday and enough utensils should you feel the need to cook meals.

Good sized balcony which kept the sun until 4pm and then you can always go down the pool area until late.

Welcomed by Liz who also came when we left to let us out of the main gate which is a nice touch.

We will be back again at some stage.

Everything you could want

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in a few apartments in the area over the last few years and this is probably the most well equipped with everything you could possibly need and a very high quality. Access to the complex is simple and it is well placed for either staying local in La Cala or travelling further afield. Liz the property manager is easily contacted and extremely helpful too.

It was all good

  • 3 of 5

- nearly all as promised. We only missed a little bit the sun on balcony in the late afternoon. But I suppose that in summer you'd like the partial shadow. Unfortunately we had for some days and nights noisy neighbors in the next appartment - the owner is not responsible for. But no full Internet? A special thanks to the manager Lorraine - very reliable and friendly. All in all we would recommend and come back - may be.

Owner's Response: Hi Uwe, Thank you for your review and I've passed on your thanks to my property manager for the help she provided when you misplaced your identification document. I've now had the engineer out to test the Internet and also asked the guests who stayed after you and both have confirmed it is fully working. I can only think that there may have been a problem with the transmitter on the coast during your time of stay but thanks anyway for bringing the matter to my attention. Thanks again for choosing my apartment and I look forward to welcoming you back. Kindest regards, Margaret

La Cala de Mijas
Car: not necessary

La Cala de Mijas is a beautiful Spanish town located right in the heart of Mijas Costa. Once a small fishing village, its cobbled streets are lined with white washed houses and palm trees. Its 'blue flag' beach is amongst the best on the Costa del Sol and comes complete with its own Pirate Ship playground and a beach playground, both of which are a big hit with the kids when they tire of the ocean.

The town of La Cala is a 10 minute stroll and has a great selection of Spanish and International bars, cafes and restaurants to suit all tastes and budgets. It also has a selection of shops, 4 supermarkets, banks and a Pharmacy.

Local buses run every 30 min to the nearby resorts of Marbella and Fuengirola and hourly to Malaga. Coach trips are also available to Gibraltar, Nerja and other locations.

Every Wednesday and Saturday you can visit the local market (situated less than 5 minutes walk from the apartment) where you'll find a variety of local produce, jewellery, clothing and gifts.

The apartment is an ideal location for golfers with 6 courses within a 10 minute drive and 1 within walking distance.

A Lidl supermarket is less than 2mins walk from the apartment and serves freshly baked bread daily.

There are so many facilities in the local area that you will never run out of things to do, with or without a car.

Within 10 minutes of the apartment, is the town of Fuengirola which boasts a fantastic water park, castle, zoo, the Parque Miramar shopping center and a vast array of bars, cafes, restaurant, shops and entertainment. 5 minutes further along the coast you'll find the town of Benalmadena with its famous marina, Tivoli World theme park and Sea Life Aquarium.
