Overall we were pleased with the rental. It is a good location, perhaps 2km outside Porto Cesario, so quick to get there by car. The actual apartment/villa seemed to be newly renovated, which was good in that everything was new but less good in that it seemed like the management didn't have a great deal of experience. For example, the man who met us didn't speak any English (which is fine), but also didn't even attempt to explain anything like how to turn the hot water on, how to turn the alarm on, how to lock the door etc. It would be useful to have a leaflet in the apartment in a few common languages explaining how these things work.
The decor was clean and had an attractive rustic feel with a seaside / maritime theme. One of the shower rooms had just been renovated which was good as the other one was a bit drab.
There were a few minor issues like the handle of our main door being broken, so hard open and for some reason expanding foam having been sprayed all over one of the trees.
The main issue was the pool. You can see from the picture that it's not a "proper" pool so we didn't expect that. But the pools were all so dirty and full of dead bugs that we never wanted to use them and ended up going to Eurovillage to pay to use the pool there.
All in all reasonable value and a good property, if a little rough around the edges.
The apartment was stunning, better than pictured with an incredible view and on the most amazing beach. We went in the low season so it was very quiet in the street pretty much had it to ourselves.
Bedrooms were much bigger than they looked in the pic and communication whilst we were there was amazing.
