The people behind Mijas Villas
Ian & Jill Fishwick - Jill and I have known the Costa del Sol for many years and during our frequent visits to Spain we have come to love Andalucia and the Spanish way of life. In 2004 we took the plunge and moved to Spain ... permanently.
Two of our daughters, Zena & Jemma, have now joined us in Spain. Jemma owns & runs Estepona Villas whilst Zena & ourselves concentrate mainly on our Mijas Properties. Number 3 daughter Tara lives in the UK and has recently joined us to run the Estepona Villas admin department.
Zena Robinson has grown up knowing the coastal and inland regions of the South of Spain. A graduate of St.Andrews and a keen outdoor enthusiast she has moved here with her husband Julian and three children who are now enjoying all that Andalucía has to offer. With Zena's insider knowledge of family friendly pursuits here on the Costa del Sol she can point you in the right direction whatever your interests.
If you want tips on the best beaches, skiing in the Sierra Nevada or surfing on the Costa de la Luz then Zena is the person to speak to.
Jemma Clements trained as a senior school science teacher with a degree from Leeds University. Jemma has travelled extensively in South America, Galapagos, Central America & the Caribbean where she worked in Eco friendly tourism. Jemma is also a qualified PADI instructor and can recommend dive schools and dive sites in the area.
Estepona Villas specialises in holiday rentals centralised on Estepona ... Jemma has properties ranging from San Pedro & Costalita in the east through to Puerto Duquesa & Sotogrande in the west.
Tara Reichow is a qualified solicitor and worked for a large law firm in Birmingham until she had her little girl Lily. Before finishing her law degree Tara traveled several times to Australia also visiting Japan and touring South & Central America.
Tara is based in the UK and runs our Estepona Villas admin department.
Janet Seddon - known to many of our guests as Jan in admin, and now you can see a face behind the email! Jan is Jill's sister ... we really are a fully family run business.
From her base in St Helens Jan has efficiently run our Mijas Villas admin department for many years - so if you have a question about payments, keys or directions Jan is the person to contact.
Lisa Ives - Lisa is your local on-site Mijas Villas representative. Lisa has worked with us since we set up business many many years ago and will be well know to all our regular guests ... we really don't know what we would do without her.
Lisa is here to answer all your questions and sort any problems you may have - be it directions to the local supermarket, a taxi to organise for a night out or unblock a drain - Lisa is the person to call. Lisa's partner, Colin (who refused to have his photo taken!), looks after all maintenance & emergency repairs.
About our properties
All our villas are privately owned by discerning individuals - friends and family - and appointed and maintained to a high standard, they are very much 'homes' and not just 'holiday lets'. We aim to offer quality properties at a fair price with a friendly, helpful and personal service; we only offer villas that we would be happy staying in ourselves.
In the past few years we have spoken to and met many lovely people from all over the world ... and look forward to meeting many more in the future.
If you have any comments about our site or would like to see any additional information added we would be interested to hear from you. Ian, Jill or Zena can be contacted directly via the Contact page.
