About Stephen Morgan
Hello my name is Stephen and i used to live in the UK until i came to Sardinia on holiday, then made a decision to retire here in Iglesias. Now to make ends meet i manage other peoples homes plus one of my own Which is listed as "Trekking cottage apartment" and costs less than camping. The reason i started this was that i had lots of enquiries for my apartment but not everybody wants to be in a mountain location and wanted beach or sea locations. So now i try to cover everyones needs. This is a great way to meet people which i enjoy very much and have great a passion for. I will be there to check you in etc and my phone is always on in case of problems.
Why Stephen Morgan chose Portoscuso
The owners of this property are both doctors (G,P's) in fact my G.P since i moved to Sardinia,so you can imagine they do not have time to deal with enquiries and bookings,also niether speak English. The property is a family property and even now the parents use the villa below on weekends in the summer, where he grew up and spent many years playing with his friends on the beach and rocks. They built the property where it is because of its location right next to the sea with easy access to the beach and marina. But sadly due to work loads etc had to move to Iglesias to be closer to his work and patients. Now it is available to rent. And after seeing the property and its location i offered to help. Also my family and grand children get to use it from time to time! Thats about it.
What makes this Villa unique
One of the main benefits about staying in this property,is if you like you do not even need to hire a car. But recommended. As the beach is on your doorstep,in fact it is hard to find another property this close to the beach. On the beach you will find 2 restuarants which serve lovely fresh food,and just a short walk from your door. There are all the usual things on hire from the beach. The marina is just a short stroll where you will find bars,restuarants,boats and ribs on hire,small markets in the summer evenings,and many festivals. From the balcony you have spectacular views of the beach which is hard to match,especialy when you are sipping you glass of wine in the evening,listening to the gentle motion of the sea on a warm summer evening.
Cancelled bookings will not receive a refund.
Morning.... we were absolutely appalled by this property.Apart from the location,which was fine,the property itself was very dated and Stephen told us , only once we arrived that the place has not been used for ages and would be musky , it was yet he knew we were coming and it seemed no attempt was made to clean it ... I had a double bed with one single sheet, the shower he informed us was tiny and the tank was so small that a shower lasted two minutes if.....no tv no barbecue was not working... I asked him specifically for a c d player in which I said I would bring my own ,he said he would find me one....He never did and never saw him again..... a few measly towels about ten years old...The owners should be aware of this ... It was Shambolic full stop.... and in all the holidays I had this really should be fully refunded and the owners be aware of the service.. I paid for cleaning fees, which is laughable......we found food which must have been there for ages.... the list is endless hence my delay in leaving feedback,as i needed another break and to be fair in leaving my feedback....One would never recommend this property to anyone ..Giovanni Commatteo..
Sur la plage
Appartement au 1 er étage d'une maison à 50 m de la plage. Vue MAGNIFIQUE ! la plage est belle mais souvent prise d'assaut très tôt le matin. La proximité de la plage permet à chacun de faire comme il veut. Le village est agréable le soir mais désert la journée.
L'appartement est simple (manque un peu d'équipements) mais parfait pour 5 personnes. Nous avons passé un excellent séjour, juste un seul petit souci: assez bruyant la nuit et tôt le matin (proximité du parking, camion poubelle et restaurant de plage)
Es hat uns gut gefallen, super Aussicht, guter Verwalter, nachts wegen dem Parkplatz leider oft sehr laut

The distance to the beach is zero as you are on the beach so to speak the beach is called Portopaglieto which is a sandy beach and well protected from the wind by some small outcrops on both sides. On this beach you can hire most things like canoe's pedalos, boat trips and so on.
there is also 2 restaurants on the beach so you do not have far to go to eat, this is the main beach in Portoscuso but there are many in this region. The beach is very safe for children and there is a life guard.
Cagliari airport is just an hours drive by car so best to arrive there, also we can arrange pick up and drop off from cagliari. (prices on request).

Portoscuso is about 20 mins drive from Iglesias and Carbonia

A short ferry crossing to Carloforte is well worth a visit,the ferry leaves Portoscuso almost every hour.

The villette is situated close to all local shops, restaurants, bars, marina, many supermarkets. Local fresh caught fish can be bought in the port but you need to get up early for that. I can arrange most things if you ask.
