                                                        Great apartment

                                                        5 of 5
                                                        The apartment is situated very close to the beach and it has everything you need for a wonderful holiday. Candelaria has a lot to offer and even if we had a car rented for the whole stay, we spend a lot of nights close by. We had a 2 weeks stay and it was amazing.

                                                        A perfect hideaway rental

                                                        5 of 5
                                                        Compact but extremely well equipped with loads of outside space. Despite its rural location, there are two restaurants within walking distance of the appartment! A good base for exploring the island, away from the main tourist traps but with a car, everywhere is easily accessible. Very warm welcome from the owners. Good value for money!

                                                        A Gorgeous private Spanish Villa indeed!

                                                        5 of 5
                                                        Everything about this villa was bigger and better than I had imagined. For sure, the pictures did look good but the space inside and outside was way beyond our expectations. The very private back garden is the size of a tennis court with a backdrop of a wild hillside full of kestrels, buzzards and more. You could comfortably fit at least five cars at the front within the locked perimeter if you wanted to - we only had one. The villa was nicely prepared and clean when we arrived and our deposit was returned promptly after we left. On the negative side for some, I would say you need a car or be prepared to use taxis as it is a little out of the way. The seclusion suited us well. Also, the dogs in the bungalow some way behind and to the side were quite noisy. They barked at every sound we made at first but did settle down after a couple of days. I have no hesitation in recommending this villa to anyone who likes seclusion and does not want a beach just across the road.
