About Lesley Dodds
Hello, We are Lesley and Jimmy we are both retired and have been married for 42 years, we have two sons and four grandaughters. We are from the Northeast of England. We came to Bulgaria for the first time in 1994 and fell in love with all that it has to offer; hence when we took early retirement 12 years ago and bought land on the hillside of Inzaraki, St Vlas, Sunny Beach, Bulgaria and built our properties which we are very proud to present for rental. We are sure you'll enjoy your holiday as much as we love living here.
Lesley Dodds purchased this Villa in 2004
Why Lesley Dodds chose Sveti Vlas
We bought land and built our properties in this location for the panaramic views of sea and mountains and the fact that it is so convenient for the resorts of the tranquil St Vlas, Lively Sunny Beach and the historic town of Nesseber. We are close enough but also far enough away from the hussle and bussle of Sunny Beach making it easy to retreat and relax. The locals are very friendly and always happy to help. We have a very good relationship with the local taxi drivers who always give our guests a great service. The air in the area is so pure which helps anyone with breathing problems, I suffer from asthma but only when back in the UK I dont have to use my medication when I am here. Sorry but unfortunately the properties are not suitable for anyone with mobility problems.

Fantastic holiday on Sveti Vlas
We have recently spent 10 days in Jimmy and Lesley's villa and we have had the best time. There was 7 of us, 4 adults and 3 teenagers and we all loved the location and facilities offered.
Jimmy met us when we arrived and showed us around the local area, which was great so that we could get our bearings. They had already done a bit of shopping for us and arranged transfers from the airport.
The local area has a good selection of restaurants and bars and the beach is only a 20 minute walk away. As is the marina, which has more restaurants to offer.
Old Nesabar is a taxi journey away and is well worth a visit.
Having a pool at the villa was fab.
It was good having Jimmy and Lesley around and nothing was too much trouble, from arranging taxis to finding out about ferry times. We cannot thank them enough for making our holiday so memorable. We are already planning our next visit.
We have all really enjoyed our time here . Jimmy and Leslie the hosts are beyond amazing they helped arranged taxis and a night out for us showed us around the local area and were on hand as needed. The area is near to all the amenities I wouldn’t hesitate to go back .
Fantastic stay in St Vlas
This was our fist holiday in Bulgaria. On arrival our taxi driver was waiting for us at the airport. 40 minutes later we arrived at the villa. Jimmy was there to greet us with all of our shopping we had ordered plus a crate of beer and some cold ones in the fridge. Jimmy is a world of information and local knowledge giving us a local tour of the area to get our bearings, which was really helpful as well as taking us to the supermarket to get further supplies.
We wanted a place that was quiet but close to restaurants, bars and shops. The location of the villa offers a great choice of day and nightlife. We loved St Vlas as it offers a more family and local scene with everything you need. There are great restaurants, bars and shops, with a short stroll through the town down to the marina and beaches. The walk down the hill from the villa is easy enough (although the road is uneven) , if you prefer a taxi back it's about 10lev. Nearby Sunny Beach is very lively with bars, clubs, casinos etc. We found the easiest way to get there is on the bus costing 1.5lev each from the supermarket.
The villa was perfect for 2 families with a wet room on each floor. The kitchen is small but more than adequate for cooking breakfast and making lunch. It could however, do with some new cutlery and pans though. The lounge is comfortable enough for a quiet read or an evening drink. Outside there is a nice sized pool with a covered gazebo area where you can sit and enjoy a drink or snack. We had a BBQ one night which was great fun. Please note there are quite a few mosquitoes out at night so take some repellent with you.
The supermarket is a stroll down the hill and has a good choice of food and drink. The Bulgarian wine is great value and very good so do try it. The way back is uphill so take a rucksack.
Places we loved. Old Nessebar for the day, via taxi or water taxi . For the evening Khan's Tent with fantastic views across the bay. Great food with the best steak we have ever eaten plus a breath taking show and live band. St Vlas for its relaxing charm and nice people.
We had a fantastic holiday and can't thank Jimmy enough for making this such a memorable holiday.
