About Rod & Jan

Rod and Jan retired early to Spain in 2001. They have a good life here in the sun.

Rod used to be a press photographer and Jan worked as a secretary and also for a charitable organisation. Previously she owned catering establishments in Spain.

We have 5 children and 6 grandchildren.

Enjoy days out by the sea and taking our dogs for long walks in the countryside of which there is plenty of here in Albox, visiting the many restaurants in the area and enjoying their very reasonable "Menu del Dias".

Rod & Jan purchased this apartment in 2003

Why Rod & Jan chose Mojacar area

We originally had a holiday apartment near Torrevieja on the Costa Blanca which we had for 10 years.

When we took early retirement early in 2001 we moved there as it was convenient.

We then looked at other areas as that one was getting very busy. Friends told us of this area of Almeria so we took a few days out and looked around Almeria province. We immediately loved it. The countryside and mountain views are stunning. You sit in the winter in 20C sunshine and look at the snow on top of the mountains, breathtaking. Weather here was a main reason for moving and also the cost of living is more reasonable than the UK.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment is in a lovely secluded place but close to town.

The private part of the garden has over 1000 square metres of trees, shrubs etc. to enjoy. The kitchen door leads out directly onto the terrace and gazebo and then into the pool area.

Visitors, many from France as well as England, have told us it is like paradise.

There is another gazebo in the garden, directly by the pool as you get out from your relaxing swim.

There is also English, French and Spanish television for your enjoyment.

It is only 2 kilometres from the town of Albox which has many restaurants and bars. Three very good supermarkets including Lidyl and four English style supermarkets where you can get your favourite goods.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Rod,

I am now back at work after what was a lovely month in Spain and the weather here in the Netherlands is pretty awful.

I just wanted to let you and Jan know that our stay at your apartment was great. You were lovely hosts, left us to our own devices and it had everything we needed and more.

All the best. Natalie and Chloe.

"This property was exactly what we hoped it would be. A nice quiet area, spotlessly clean and had everything we needed, especially a good shower. Communication from the owner from booking to arriving was excellent - particularly the directions from Almeria airport to the property. Thank you - we had a very enjoyable & relaxing break". Lesley.

"Very good holiday extremely helpful owners --quiet area near town 3 mins in car-lovely views of mountains all around apartment very well equipped and very comfortable,super pool and garden access good all on one level-good value for money, would definitely return." Frank Haggis.

Excellent location and outside amenities.

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I had an enjoyable and peaceful time at this lovely apartment. We were greeted immediately on arrival and our hosts were very discreet. The lovely pool was cleaned each morning before we were up and about. The private outside space was superb especially the covered outside eating area. Our favourite restaurants were La Cena in Albox and the Happy Garden Chinese. Would recommend the property to any friends visiting the Albox area.

Lovely stay at this Villa/Apartment

  • 4 of 5

Firstly don't be fooled and worried when you see that the owners live in the villa to which the apartment is attached about privacy because I can tell you at this villa Rod and Jan were excellent hosts who offered good advice about the villa and area and was available if we had any problems which we did not,it felt that we was the only people in the villa and grounds which contributed to a lovely relaxing holiday.The apartment was clean well equipped and a decent size as per the listing,outside the grounds are quite extensive and flat and the private pool is well looked after and sparkingly clean everything was there for a very relaxing holiday.

A Perfect Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from 2 fabulous weeks with Jan and Rod in Albox. Jan and Rod were perfect hosts and made us feel very welcome. They gave us information on events happening locally and local markets and were always available if needed but we were left to our own devices and were able to enjoy the lovely pool, garden, mountain views and superb outdoor eating areas in complete privacy. The accommodation is well maintained with air conditioning, free internet, and a great shower.

Albox is a lovely little Spanish town where you are able to eat out at a very reasonable price and there is a superb market on a Tuesday!

I can certainly recommend this property to anyone who is looking for a relaxing and stress free holiday. It is an ideal location and we will definately be going back again
