Having not been on this sort of holiday before we didn't really know what to expect but we were really pleased with what we found. The villa was spacious (loads of storage space), well kept and cool!
As other reviewers have said the neighbours, Paula and John, were very helpful. We arrived much later than we expected thanks to a prolonged wait at the car hire - and they very generously came and rescued us when we couldn't find the villa in the dark! They gave us some great tips for places to go. They were helpful but not at all intrusive.
Lovely pool - bigger than the photos suggest. The poolman came every week to clean. He came early-ish in the morning so as not to infringe on pooltime!
With the exception of one night the the villa was very peaceful and quiet. We didn't need the aircon as we were happy to sleep with open windows. I know other reviewers have mentioned mosquitos so we went armed with bug spray but we didn't have a problem with mosquitos during late July/early August.
The water supply at the villa takes some getting used to. When you turn the tap on you get a good flow of water for a couple of seconds which then stops! Leave the tap on a short while and water flow is then normal. Once you know what's happening it is fine just a little confusing at first.
I would say a car is essential if you stay at this villa. You could manage with taxis but a car gives you more freedom.
In short, a lovely place to stay with helpful owner before arrival and helpful neighbours once there. Enjoy
We ( me, hubby and 4 growing boys ages from 11yrs to 26yrs) had the best week staying at this beautiful villa, just like home from home. A Lovely welcome of tea, coffee and milk and other essentials were waiting for us in the kitchen. There is something for everyone, free WiFi and the owners kindly supplied books, games, toys for the pool, and a great choice of Dvds to watch if you get the time!
The pool and hot tub are amazing and the garden just beautiful and well looked after, so many places to chill and relax. We used the barbeque area nearly every night, just popping to the supermarket for supplies which isn't far by car, about 15 mins drive.
Such a beautiful villa and island, our only regret is not staying longer
Very much hope to stay there again some day,
