UPDATED MAR 2018.
The detached property is in a quiet setting within the village and has a lovely pool and spacious terrace with BBQ, and is set above the quiet street and surrounded by borders and plants, which makes it self contained and very private and ideal for families. The pool itself has benefited from a complete rejuvenation; acid clean, tile repairs, re-grout, edging stones re-seated (Nov 2017). The pool and terrace area closest to the building is south facing and therefore captures the sun all day, but the far end of the pool and terrace has some natural shade from the adjacent trees. There are ample newly re-covered sun loungers (spring 2017), patio furniture and new shade umbrellas (spring 2017). Two new sun loungers (Apr 2018) are lightweight and have carry handles so they are easily moved around the terrace, and have their own adjustable parasol and adjustable pillow. The pool is professionally maintained and cleaned twice a week, and our agents handle the laundry and cleaning and are available to guests during their stay.
Inside the property the entrance door opens onto a spacious open plan area of lounge, dining area and kitchen, with exposed wooden beams. The lounge gives sliding door access to the terrace and pool, and has a newly installed large air conditioning unit, and there are two new 3 seater leather sofas. For entertainment there is a TV (currently limited to the news and music channels) with PC in-line socket, DVD player with USB and a CD/radio player with USB which can play mp3 discs. The cabinets contain several family games and jigsaws/paints/drawing materials for children. Also there is newly installed Wi-Fi giving internet access. There is a good selection of books available in the entrance way, where the ironing board, drying rail and cleaning facilities are kept.
The dining area has a new pine table and chairs to seat six people and high chairs/cots are available for children from our agents. The kitchen has had a makeover and has been brightened with new worktops, new stainless steel appliances; electric oven, gas hob, extractor, sink and tap. There are fridge freezer, microwave, toaster, coffee maker and kettle. The kitchen now has a new dishwasher, and the washing machine has been brought inside alongside it. The brightened kitchen units give plenty of storage space, and there are ample crockery, utensils and cooking pans and dishes.
Of the three bedrooms, the larger master bedroom has en suite shower facilities and is to the rear of the property and so more shaded - it receives the sun later in the day. It has newly installed air con (Nov 2017). The second bedroom is a twin room which gives sliding door access to the terrace and pool, and has sliding pine wardrobe doors, and the wardrobe contains a safe. The third bedroom is a double room and it overlooks the terrace and pool, and has sliding pine wardrobe doors.
The main bathroom has a bath with shower over, and a lighted mirror above the sink unit with cupboard and drawers. There is also a magnifying mirror.
Whilst there are good countryside views from the pool terrace, these are even better from the roof terrace where one can watch the sun go down.
Externally there are garden areas all around the property and two driveways with parking for two or three cars. A folding drying rail is available stored in the entranceway. Hot water is supplied by an instantaneous gas boiler (newly upgraded summer 2017) and so is not subject to the restrictions/time delays of electric immersion heaters.
The village amenities are little more than a 5min walk away, and the beach only a 10 min walk. The beach itself is in a horseshoe cove gently sloping into the sea and is ideal and safe for children. Lifeguards are on duty and there are tapas bars at the beachside. The village has various bars and restaurants to cater for all tastes with a relaxed atmosphere, and English is understood and spoken by the majority of villagers. For those seeking more of a disco environment, this happens on the far side of the village in an actual cave where one can watch the sun go down with a glass of wine before the disco entertainment begins later. This is a popular attraction on the island.
There is a regular bus service during the summer months to take you to the capital Mao which is only ten to fifteen minutes away. From there buses travel to all parts of the island, including Cuitadella on the opposite side of the island which is only about an hour away. There is a bus stop just around the corner from the villa which is the first stop, so one is sure of getting a seat!
