We arrived at the bungalow after picking up our hire car. We found it without any problems and there were plenty car parking spaces literally on the doorstep. Easy retrieval of the keys and settled in very quickly. James, the owner called in by to see us and discuss any queries we had which was a lovely touch. He had organised tea, coffee, water and milk which saved a trip to the local shop. The property was a great base for our holiday and is within walking distance to the beach, bars and restaurants. This is the first time we had organised a property through HomeAway as we normally go on package holidays and we both agreed that it was more a home from home and we were able to please ourselves and “do our own thing”. The communal swimming pool with sun beds was an added bonus. James has thought of everything to make your stay comfortable including British tv if you want it. There are plenty utensils for cooking in the property as there is a hob and microwave although there are copious restaurants in the area serving up good food at reasonable prices.If you want a comfortable, secure and quiet base near to beach etc then we highly recommend this property. Thank you James, we will be back.
Me and my wife have had several villa holiday's over the years - this is one of our favourites in terms of furnishings, cleanliness and facilities. The villa had absolutely everything we needed and has very been refurbished to a high standard. The walk in shower is great, beds comfortable and the layout in general was great for us e.g. all on one level (which helped with us having an 8 month old). The TV in the villa is set up with full sky package and lots of on demand movies which was great for me and our son (mainly me) to relax to during afternoon naps whilst my wife enjoyed the sun.
The outdoor space is lovely, with a nice BBQ area and the pool a good size with walk in steps - we had the pool heated which I would definitely recommend. The pool was lovely and clean - the pool cleaner turned up twice during our 8 day stay to keep on top of things.
The location is great, it is set in a very quiet part of puerto del carmen, fairly easy walking distance to the old town and harbour where there are plenty of bars and places to eat - the area is a little hilly but we found it okay and my wife has a bad hip and coped well. Local shops (Spar) and bars are very close by - we tended to get small bits, water and bread etc. from the spar each day but did our main shop at Lidl which is a short drive away. We had a hire car but could have coped without one as we did not really explore the island much during our stay, it was our first holiday with our newborn and we just wanted a relaxing quiet place with everything we needed close by and Carrida certainly delivered. If we are returning to the island in the future we would definitely look into booking this villa again.
