About Richard and Carole
We currently live in Yorkshire and have 2 grown up children. I have run my own business and my wife teaches young children in our local school. We spend as much time as we can in La Cala as it has been our second home for many years.
Richard and Carole purchased this Villa in 1981
Why Richard and Carole chose La Cala de Mijas
We have loved coming to La Cala for our holidays for many years and its convenience and safety has always been paramount for bringing up our 2 children as they were able to access the beach independently from an early age. The local people are so friendly and we feel very much part of the village community.
What makes this Villa unique
We have enjoyed this property because of its stunning location and its near proximity to the beach. However with the availability of a car the whole of Andalucia is a fantastic place to explore from La Cala. You can be skiing in Sierra Nevada within 2 hours, Gibraltar is only an hour's drive and the city of Malaga, the birthplace of Picasso, with its fabulous architecture and history is only a 30 minute drive or a pleasant coastal train ride from Fuengirola.
Cancelled bookings will not receive a refund.
Excellent property, good order, very clean, convenient to town and beach.
A few minor niggles. Toaster didn't work. Now that the street upgrade has taken place off street parking anywhere near the property could be very difficult. At the moment only a small car (Skoda Fabia) JUST fitted into drive which was OK for us but would be impossible for anything larger. TV failed completely when it rained on the satellite dish; not a problem in the summer, hopefully, but annoying for the "rainy season". But don't let this put you off. We've stayed at Cala de Mijas for the last 7 years and this is the best property we have found so far and I'm sure the owners will fix the very minor faults we found.
Dear Richard and Ruth
Thank you for taking the time to post a review for us. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us even though the weather was not too kind. Thank you for bringing to our attention the toaster and the satellite issues which have now both been resolved with a brand new toaster and the repair of a small wiring issue to the dish. We look forward to having you stay with us again when you next visit La Cala and would welcome you back anytime.

Fantastic location, well equipped house and lovely owners.
This is the second time me and my husband have stayed at the property with our young children and as last time we would highly recommend. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and it really does feel like a home from home. Its in a wonderful location just behind the beach, near restaurants cafes and shops. The house its self is lovely and well equipped with everything you could need from self catering accommodation. The owners are very friendly and extremely helpful keeping us well informed throughout the booking process, and very quick to answer any questions. We will definitely be visiting again.

Everything you could want in the perfect location.
Booking this property was seamless and trouble free. We have been holidaying in and around La Cala for many years and this is right up there with the best of the properties we have used. Everything about it is spot on, fully equipped is an understatement. The beach is a one minute walk away, supermarkets and all the other shops five minutes walk.
Bars and restaurants aplenty on the doorstep you pay your money and take you choice.
You don't need a car, we used the taxi service offered by Richard and Carole and it was excellent.
To sum up, don't hesitate book up and have a great holiday. We will be back.

Nice property, poor location.
Very clean well equipped town house spoilt by close proximity of rubbish bins with unsociable collection times (1:30 am, 4:00am, 7:00am) check out Google earth street view to see how close !!! La Call de Mijas is a lovely place.
Thank you for your review. The location of our villa is central to all the amenities and at the hub of village life in La Cala, with the beach and boardwalk being only 65 metres away. The recycling containers are only a temporary measure as the remodelling of the road system is imminent. We apologise if this was an inconvenience to you and hope that you will stay with us again in the future.
