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

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

Hi Margaret

We had a lovely holiday and your apartment was great. We will certainly be coming back again and will also be recommending your apartment to all our friends.

Willmore’s break

  • 5 of 5

We never revisit a holiday resort for fear it would change for the worse

The last time we visited la Cala we had such a relaxing break we decided to do it again.

Surprisingly it didn’t disappoint

The apartment was very clean,

cooking utensils were as new no hesitation in using them which is unusual for the wife, (sexist I know) but Jackie is quite particular about that sort of thing

Helped having lithe supermarket within a 5 minute walk

Buses were cheap and punctual and the train to Malaga was very nice trip

Walking on the 6k promenade was a real treat

Will we go back YES.

We had a great time in la Cala. Loads of great bars and resteraunts. The apartment was spotless. Felt like home from home. Went to Malaga for the day. The port and old town worth a visit. We caught the bus at bottom of road and it was only a few euros. Hopefully we will return soon. C&J.

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.
