Pool / Spa
Prachtige buitenkant, basis binnenkant.
De charme van het huis ligt vooral in de tuin en het zwembad. De tuin is mooi onderhouden, het zwembad zalig, voldoende tuinmeubilair aanwezig. Ook de locatie is ideaal om het gebied rond de zwarte zee te ontdekken.
Een nadeel is de moeilijke bereikbaarheid met een grote auto. Verder is de 2de badkamer niet echt de naam 'badkamer' waardig (meer een toilet met een douchesproeier) en bleef er tijdens ons verblijf in de grote badkamer een slechte geur hangen (ondanks de geurzakjes die we kochten). Het huis was verder niet zo proper.
We absolutely loved the villa. It is just as it looks in the pictures, and had pretty much everything we needed. The pool was perfect, and was used by at least one of us for the whole time we were staying there. The rental company we dealt with were very helpful, and when there was a storm that tripped the electrics they knew exactly where the fuse box was, and we were able to sort it out very quickly. There are a couple of rooms in the property that didn't have air conditioning and therefore could get quite hot, but as long as the doors were closed we found we could cool the whole house down enough in the day for it to not be a problem.
The villa was about a 15minute walk from a super market, but for most things we found it best to use a taxi service (which were all very cheap). The only problem we had was directing the taxi drivers to the property since it did not have an address! All in all we had a fantastic stay and would thoroughly recommend the villa. The owners seemed quite friendly too, although we didn't have very much contact with them.
Sehr schönes Haus
Wir waren mit 9 Leuten und 3 Hunden für 2 Wochen in dem Haus. Die Raumaufteilung hat gut geklappt, da jedes Schlafzimmer eine unterschiedliche Größe und Bettenanzahl brachte, wodurch für jeden was dabei war. Das Wohnzimmer und die Küche waren für Vollbelegung leider etwas klein dimensioniert, aber man konnte trotzdem damit arbeiten wenn man sowieso draußen essen will.
Der Außenbereich war super und brachte eigentlich alles mit, was man in einem schönen Urlaub braucht. Der Pool war super und auch sehr gepflegt. Das lag auch daran, dass einmal pro Woche der Pool-service und auch Reinigungskräfte für das Haus selbst kamen und das im Preis inbegriffen. Auch der Haustechniker ist immer erreichbar und reagiert relativ schnell.
Die Anfahrt zum Grundstück lief über einen Feldweg mit Schotter und es lag am Ende einer Sackgasse. Wir mussten mit unserem Ford Transit immer einmal die ca. 200m rückwärts fahren, was bei eventuell parkenden Autos zu Engstellen führen kann. Für kleinere Fahrzeuge ist (je nach Parksituation) meist eine Wendemöglichkeit gegeben, ein fester Stellplatz war auf jeden Fall immer frei.
Die Umgebung war sehr ruhig, bis auf gelegentliches Hunde-Gebell da so gut wie jedes Haus hier einen Wachhund besitzt die teilweise sehr empfindlich reagierten. Ausflüge haben wir meist mit dem PKW gemacht, aber auch Taxi und Bus sind eine günstige Alternative.
Living on a construction site
We spent three weeks in Villa Trakata in July 2015.
It was horrible!
Every morning from Monday to Friday at 7.30 construction works started just next door. It was an incredible noise all day from concrete mixer, jack-hammer, circular saw and so on. At 5.30 in the evening the workers went home. But in the evenings and at the weekends the owner continued working.
Trakata area is a neighbourhood of dozens of small weekend cottages. Now the owners started to enlarge the datchas to real houses. At a few houses this has been finalized. But there are plenty of houses where construction work will start in the next years.
Besides the noise the villa is nice. It is an interesting building as it is an enlarged cottage. It has a nice garden and large swimming pool. Furniture is as you expect in a holiday house, not luxurious but decent.
The gateway to the site is small. Try to rent a car with park distance control.
It is a ten minutes drive to the beach, pubs, restaurants and souvenir shops of St. Constantine. To Varna city center and Golden Sands it is just a few minutes more.
Contact with the owners in the UK and with the agency in Varna was very nice.
In a nutshell: we would come back in a couple of years when construction works in the neighbourhood have ceased.
Thank you for your positive comments regarding the villa, pool and garden. We are extremely pleased that you found the villa to your satisfaction.
We apologise profusely for the interminable noise from the building works next door. We understand that this would have greatly reduced your enjoyment of the property. We enjoyed two weeks at the villa at the beginning of June and did not encounter any building work or noise and could therefore not have predicted this issue.
As you have pointed out, the area is a villa zone with private dwellings and the circumstances that occurred with the building work was out of our control. There is no requirement in villa zones to consult with neighbours and therefore owners are free to adapt their property/land at any time they wish.
Our agents have already spoken with the neighbour after hearing from the gardener with regard to the building work. The neighbour advised that the works will be finished by this Autumn.We have also asked our agents to request that the building work starts two hours later for the next few weeks whilst our customers are resident. Having an un-renovated or half renovated property in the locality is quite the norm in this area, and therefore it cannot be assumed that further building work will occur. We have rented the property for the past seven years and this is the first disruption for our customers that we have encountered.As stated building works cannot be predicted and therefore your estimate of two years is somewhat academic. We are delighted that you would wish to return to our villa for a holiday, and very much look forward to hearing from you in the not too distant future.
Kind regards Penny
