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.

peace and tranquility

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have just returned after spending a week here and despite my wife being taken ill, we had a lovely time. 'La Casita' had everything we needed and the garden and pool area, of which we had sole use, was great. It's only a short 2-3 min drive from the town of Albox which has just about all you need. The coastal resorts of Mojacar and Garrucha are an easy 40 min drive and are very traditional and quiet with some great Spanish restaurants.

The area around the Villa is very quiet with a few other villas dotted around but spread out.

It was very easy getting there from Almeria airport and if you follow Rods' written directions to the villa you will not get lost.

Jan & Rod are wonderful people and leave you entirely alone, but if you need them, just knock the door. We did this at 7.00am one morning, as my wife was ill and I wanted to know where the medical centre was, they insisted on taking us there and ended up spending all day with us at the Hospital. I think that says it all.

We would love to go back to Almeria and would stay here.

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure to have you both staying in the apartment. We are so glad you enjoyed the garden and pool area and the lovely views of the mountains. It was no problem to help you out when Amanda was ill and hope that she is recovering back home in Wales. It would be great to see you both again back here in our Albox retreat. Best wishes Rod and Jan

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.
