A relaxing break begins with a holiday rental in Sesmarias.

                                                                                                      We have just returned from 2 weeks holiday staying at Oasis no.5 and what an amazing time we had! We were a party of 8 comprising 3 couples and 2 children aged 5 & 9. The villa was so comfortable and spacious that we didn't feel like we were in each other's pockets all the time. We paid to heat the pool which was well worth it as we used the pool every day. The rear garden is a bonus and we used this for some chill time away from the pool. Towels were changed and all bathrooms washed out mid week then sheets/towels changed and full villa clean at end of first week which we didn't expect! This place far exceeded our expectations and whilst the photos look lovely the place in reality it is so much more better, if that is even possible! Manfred and Tracy are perfect hosts popping in every few days to see if everything was okay or if we needed anything, this is not in an intrusive way at all. So kind in lots of ways, a run to the supermarket on arrival day, fresh pastries dropped off on day 2, Manfred the "Easter bunny" for the grand kids with the lovely Easter egg and the much appreciated gift to my husband on his 60th birthday.....amazing kindness shown throughout our stay. The short walk to the beach, cliff walks, restaurants and mini markets make for a perfect location. The only time we went afar was for the Slide and Splash and Zoomarine parks. A car is not essential for this villa unless you like to go and explore further afield. A taxi from the Apolina store was €6/7 and return journey to Aldi €16 and the driver even waited for us while we did our shopping. Antonia's taxi service was very reliable and I would highly recommend using them for airport transfers as he knows the location well - my6seatstaxi@gmail.com we used for the parks too as it was cheaper than the park transport given size of our group. Communication from booking through to arrival was excellent and any queries were answered very quickly. We would have no hesitation in recommending the Oasis Villas, safe and secure quiet location but not very far from other amenities if you want them. We will definitely return again, thank you Tracy and Manfred!

The apartment has everything that you need for a stress free holiday with three young children. It is well equipped with everything you would have at home, hairdryer and pegs too! It is also spotlessly clean (thanks!) it is so close to Lorenco beach, which is my favourite beach of the area with its rocks for exploring and looking for fish! We spend most of our time either on the beach or in the pool, breakfast on the balcony looking out at the sea view, bliss! It's just a pity the time goes by so quickly. Tracey makes the booking process so easy, replies to mails straight away and has provided everything you need for an easy holiday. A home away from home!
