This newly built villa is situated in the beautiful area of Alen Mak. It has wonderful sea views from all 6 bedrooms. Each bedroom has a balcony. The villa enjoys a large private swimming pool, a sauna, a gym, a large pool table, table tennis and a poker table. It has remote controlled air-conditioners throughout. The beautiful Kabakum beach is a short 10 minute walk away and the resort of Golden Sands isn't much further. The nearest shops and restaurants are a 2 minute stroll away. Close by is a bus station where you can take a bus into Golden Sands Resort or Varna Centre. Although catching a taxi into Golden Sands should only set you back a few euros.

About Sara or Sebastian
We are a family from UK who love Bulgaria so much we decided to build our own holiday villa there so that we can enjoy it year after year.
Sara or Sebastian purchased this Villa in 2004
Why Sara or Sebastian chose Varna
We decided to buy in Bulgaria because after a holiday there some years ago all of our family fell in love with the Country. We loved Varna and Alen Mak from the start. We built this villa from scratch after very carefully choosing its location and it was completed in April 2009. We love it so much because of its wonderful sea views and the friendly locals. It is situated close enough to all the attractions but not too close so you can enjoy the quiet relaxing atmosphere of the villa zone and its residents. The closest restaurants and shops are a 2 minute walk away and the beach isn't much further. Alen Mak is situated in between Golden Sands Resort and St Constantine Resort which are both quite different experiences.
What makes this Villa unique
When staying at our villa we can enjoy so much without even leaving the grounds. Firstly there is the large swimming pool and the sun loungers, the barbecue, the patio area, the terraces with the stunning sea views. Then there is the pool table, the gym, table tennis, the sauna,the poker table and satellite with LCD TV. There are air conditioners in all rooms to keep nice and cool on a hot evening. There are plenty of restaurants and shops within walking disance and of course there is the lovely restaurant on the beach with its friendly staff and surrounding bars. The bus station and taxi rank are a 2 minute walk away from the villa so we can reach all the great places without much effort if we choose to go further a field.

A fantastic villa for a large family
The villa was perfect for our large family of 7 adults and 6 children. It was well equiped with everything we needed. The swimming pool was fantastic with lots of beds and floats and was very well kept, there was also a bbq. We were met at 4am by Jennia who was so lovely and friendly, nothing was too much trouble. She even made up another bed for us. We were left a welcome pack of food which was perfect as we had got in so late.
I would definitely recommend this villa.
One bit of advice, is that it might be worth hiring a car if you have children as we did sometimes have difficulty getting a taxi. Half our group had a car and it was definitely the best way.
Thank you so much for your nice comments and for taking the time to write a review. It was unfortunate that that the road was closed due to road works right where the taxi rank is normally situated during your stay,.
We are very happy that you loved your holiday and our villa so much. Thank you again!
11 of us stayed for a week in June and had a brilliant time. The weather was fantastic and the Villa met all our expectations. Large, spacious and immaculately clean upon arrival. The pool was great and even larger than it looks from the pictures. The games room is a big bonus although we didn't really use it that much as we chose to be outside most of the time. Would definitely go back.
Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. We are pleased that you all enjoyed your stay at our villa and had a great holiday. It's nice to know that you'd like to go back again. You are always welcome!
Beautiful villa and wonderful family holiday
My family and I spent two weeks at this villa at the end of July and we had such an amazing time there.
The villa is beautiful. Very large and clean. Has a lovely pool and outside area. We had many fun nights in the games room!
There is a supermarket under 10 minutes walk away where there are a couple of restaurants. We particularly liked the restaurant right next to the supermarket. The food we had was really nice and very cheap.
Klas bbq is a really amazing restaurant! Has great food and it's closer to the villa than the supermarket.
The closest beach is 15-20 mins away. The walk was a bit too much for my parents who are 70 but was not an issue for the rest of us.
The beach is lovely. Lots of bars and restaurants. The sea is fantastic and we had one day of really amazing waves.
Golden sands is a 5 minute taxi ride away where there are lots of late night bars/music and we had a few nights out there which were great fun.
Sara is lovely - answered all my queries and went out of her way to make sure we had a great holiday. Milan - who welcomed us to the villa - was lovely as well and provided us with lots of information about the area.
Thank you so much - we had an amazing time!
Thank you so much for your review. We are really happy that you loved our villa and the area. We are glad you found us helpful and we appreciate you saying so. You are welcome back anytime.
Dirty & Disappointing
We booked this villa as we were a party of 9 travelling for my brothers birthday, on paper it ticked all the boxes, in reality it was very different!
It's states 4 bathrooms, 3 toilets, on arrival we only had 1 useable toilet as one was filthy, the other one was smashed, we had to go out & purchase cleaning products to clean the loo ourselves leaving us with 2 working toilets between 9 people!
The whole villa was dirty & clearly hadn't been cleaned for our arrival, crumbs all over the kitchen, bins with rubbish still in them, food in the fridge, all bedrooms very dusty and floors filthy, we had to wear shoes indoors to keep our feet clean!
The sun beds are all broken and again very dirty & there are no cushions so you are lying on hard, broken plastic, not what we expected especially as my parents are in their 70's and another family member at 80.
All around the pool are rusty nail things that I imagine are used to cover the pool but they stick out & are dangerous, if you were to catch your foot or worst still a child fall on one I dread to think of the outcome.
The fridge is small & would only cope with daily supermarket trips if more than 2 people & there is only a very small freezer compartment in the fridge, it was also dirty & smelt, it was as though the door had been shut with the fridge off, it really was disgusting so again we had to clean it before we felt comfortable using it!
There is a definite lack of towels & tea towels, we were given 2 tea towels for the week for our group & the bathroom towels left a lot to be desired.
The wooden bench set outside which is the only means of outdoor dining is unusable as there is sap bleeding through on the seats & table forcing us to either eat indoor or using the dirty plastic chairs with food balanced on our laps.
The basement which hosts the sauna and games room smells really damp & musty, we didn't go down there all week as it was so strong.
It really is endless, the window & door on one of the top rooms don't open, the window is broke and everything opens on one hinge and the door to the balcony was jammed shut, the stairs all have broken plastic strips that stick up above each step which is a real trip hazard, one of the landing windows was cracked from end to end, lights not working, we had to take bulbs out of bedside tables to use in the bathrooms!
All of which was reported on arrival & private email since returning to give Sara a chance to respond before leaving this review.
Gorgeous house, lovely area, great holiday!
We stayed at this villa for one week in July. We found the villa itself very impressive, the bedrooms were spacious with spectacular views from the balconies. The house itself was spotless on arrival, and the garden was very well-kept. Pool was FANTASTIC, especially at night when it lights up different colours. Perfect private area in the back garden to relax and soak up the sun whilst the kids played in the pool. The living area downstairs was bright and airy, with everything you would need- full kitchen, English TV channels and wi-fi.
Villa itself is in a fairly private area, but just a two minute stroll to shops and some lovely restaurants. Sara and Sebastian could not have been more helpful- they made the entire booking process very straight-forward and answered any queries we had. They also provided us with information on things to do in Varna- from the zoo to the mall to the beach, there was plenty to entertain our group! The Golden Sands Resort is only a five minute drive away as well, with a great variety of nightclubs and restaurants.
All in all we would highly recommend Varna and in particular this villa- thank you Sara and Sebastian for a terrific holiday! Same again next year 😊
Thank you so much for your review and the nice comments you have made. We are happy that you enjoyed your holiday and would love to have you back again any time.
Lovely clean villa with lots of space and the bonus of a private pool. Nice surprise to find lots of resteraunts at the bottom of the hill which were surprisingly cheap and delicious! Taxi rank also at bottom of hill if wanting to go on nights out into golden sands etc. There is a booklet with recommended activities which came in really handy. Also found a shortcut to the beach which was fab! Brill holiday and will definitely be returning :)
Thank you so much for your review. We really appreciate it and we are happy you enjoyed your holiday.
We are lucky to have Kabakum beach just a 10 minute walk away. This beach is one of the cleanest around Varna and is surrounded by shops and restaurants.
Varna Airport is a 20 minutes drive away from the villa.
Varna centre is 15 minutes by car or bus. A bus can be taken from the Alen Mak bus station which is less than 5 minutes walk from the villa.
There are restaurants, shops and bowling within 5 minutes walking distance from the villa. There are a number of shopping centres a short drive or bus ride away, one with cinema, snooker/pool hall, a roller skating rink, amusements hall, restaurants and much more.
