About Paul

We are from the UK and had visited Mijas several times to stay with friends and we grew to love the area, the sunshine and the relaxed way of life.

We bought the villa in 2013 and renovated it over the following year.

It is the perfect setting and location for a relaxing holiday.

Being able to walk into the village was a huge plus for us with many bars, restaurants and leisure activities all close by.

The villa is clean, modern and bright inside and the outside space is large with several areas for relaxing, eating and sunbathing all with lovely views.

Paul purchased this villa in 2010

Absolutely sensational - a dream come true

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful holiday in Mijas, largely due to our enjoyment of this fabulous property. It looked impressive in all the photos on the website, but in reality it was even more delightful. The views (you can watch cruise ships coming and going from Malaga and, on a clear day, see the Atlas Mountains) , the condition of the furniture and the property itself (everything is very well maintained, inside and out), the pool (perfect refreshing temperature on a hot day), the al fresco dining area overlooking the pool (we didn't have a single meal indoors for the entire 18 days!), the entire setup is just indescribably idyllic and luxurious. The location is also perfect - just a 10 minute walk into Mijas. Parking right at the gate and from a security point of view we had no worries, even when my husband and I were out all day my elderly Mother could lock the gate and felt completely at ease. We did visit many of the lovely attractions in Andalucia but were always so glad to get back to this beautiful house, jump in the pool, mix a G&T and settle down to another evening in Paradise.

Stunning villa in a beautiful position.

  • 4 of 5

We loved this place. It is a very well appointed villa - spotlessly clean and modern - in an elevated position with wide views of the sea. It is within easy walking distance of the town of Mijas, which is a real gem of a traditional Spanish pueblo. Even in early October we made good use of the small pool. The only disappointment was the quality of the mattresses - the one in the master bedroom was too soft and the others were too hard.

Owner's Response: Dear Shelagh, Thank you so much for your great review, glad you enjoyed the villa and the village of Mijas. We appreciate your feedback re the mattresses and we are just sorry you didn’t let us know during your stay or we could have tried to find a solution. Our welcome and our farewell to our wonderful guests is a great opportunity to get feedback in the moment and again we are sorry that you didn’t mention it when we checked you out. We haven’t had any other comments re this before but we do take your feedback on board and it will give us the opportunity to check with future guests so it’s very much appreciated. Thank you again and we hope to welcome you back to La Joya one day.

Amazing villa with stunning views

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I have just returned from this beautiful villa, whilst it is quite small it has everything you need to make your stay comfortable, it is extremely modern and bright and has a real 'homely' atmosphere. The road the villa is on is quite steep but once on the main road is approx 15 mins walk into the main centre of the village. There is plenty of shade and privacy boards have been put up to make the pool area very private but also plenty of space to move if you want that sunshine on you!! The area is quite so your sleep is uninterrupted, and having AC makes the villa even more comfortable. Paul and Sue who looked after us during our stay were extremely helpful and can't thank them enough. All in all we had a fabulous time and would have no hesitation in recommending this beautiful villa and sure we will back in future.

Beautiful Villa, exceeded expectations.

  • 5 of 5

I cannot recommend this Villa highly enough, it absolutely exceeded our expectations. It is perfectly situated a ten minute walk from lovely Mijas where there are fantastic restaurants, bars and a couple of small supermarkets. We were given a wonderful welcome from Sue and Paul, who look after the Villa, as previous reviews have stated they even provided an extensive welcome pack of everything we needed and communication with them throughout our experience was great. The villa was absolutely spotlessly clean and furnished to an extremely high standard and the views to the sea and the mountains are fantastic. We can't thank you enough and look forward to returning.

Beautiful villa in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 18 days in July 2017, and had a wonderful time in this very comfortable villa. It is spotlessly clean and we were very well looked after by Paul and Sue, the managers, who met us on our late evening arrival with a really nice welcome pack of essential food and drinks.

The villa is well maintained, and has everything you need, with comfortable and high quality furniture and clean and bright décor. All the bedrooms and living room have very effective air con.

The outside areas are superb, with lots of greenery and shady areas, and adjustable parasols when the sun becomes a little too much. The outdoor furniture is high quality too, making outside living so comfortable. We were able to enjoy all our meals outside. The pool is small but deep, great for cooling off. Although there are other villas adjacent, there are lots of screens and trees so it feels quiet and private. There is a shaded private parking space at the entrance.

Location is great, just 30 minutes drive from Malaga airport, and 5 minutes from the lovely village of Mijas Pueblo, which has shops, restaurants and is very pleasant to wander around. The village of Benalmadena is a 10 minute drive, lots of good restaurants and a butterfly park which is worth a visit.

There was good contact from both the owners and managers, who were very helpful.

Would definitely recommend, and hope to return sometime soon.

Beautiful villa. Great location.

  • 5 of 5

This villa is modern, spacious, exceptionally clean and fully equipped with all that you will need. The various outdoor seating areas are delightful. A mix of shade and sun.

It is an approximately 10 minute walk into the centre of Mijas, in a quiet and peaceful residential area.

Mijas itself is a beautiful village with an array of shops and places to eat to suit all tastes.

Sue & Paul who look after the villa are extremely helpful and a pleasure to deal with.

I hope to return to this villa again.

Mijas Pueblo is one of Andalucía's famous white villages, set high in the hills looking down to the sea with the mountains behind.

It has many great bars and restaurants, quaint shops, a small bullring and of course the donkeys on which you can explore the village.

It is a beautiful setting, don't forget your camera.

Only a short walk to the village and just a short car/bus ride to the beaches, Malaga, Fuengirola, Marbella and Puerto Banus are also near by.

You can also walk into the beautiful countryside above the village from the villa and enjoy fabulous mountain walks.

Not far away are the Guadalhorce lakes where you can stroll or kayak and also walk the famous Camino Del Rey.

Granada and Rhonda are both close by if you want to explore further by car.

It is the perfect base to explore the beautiful white washed villages of Andalucía.

We love it here.
