Great Place to have a Family Holiday or Chill Out

  • 4 of 5

This Villa is wonderfully situated within easy walking distance of nice beaches and lovely restaurants. The Villa itself is well situated and the extensive Garden and good sized heated pool get sunshine from early morning until late in the evening which is fab. The outside seating/dining area is a really great space where you can chill out in the evening or take cover from the hot sun during the day, which is great. The Villa is large and has plenty of space with the upstairs bedrooms offering great accommodation. The Villa is located close to the Office which is reassuring in case there are any difficulties which can be quickly addressed (we did encounter some issues caused in the main by the Villa having been 'closed' for the winter and we were first to occupy it but these were quickly resolved by the Management Team (with the owner also making contact to ensure things were being done... which was nice). SO for any family looking to spend a quiet relaxing holiday with room to chill and play in the sun this Villa

Great villa; poor maintainence

  • 3 of 5

The villa was great and was as described. However, the maintainence of the villa left much to be desired and we had to compensate for this during the first few days, for example defrosting the freezer, getting the cloudy pool cleaned, informing the managing agent of inadequate towels and sheets, etc. The positioning of the villa is on the other side of a dual carriageway from the marina and beach but once we had factored this in we found the beach was an ideal way to spend the day. The marina restaurants and bars were a bit too "British" for us but we did manage to enjoy ourselves. Overall an OK holiday but we won't be going back.

Fantastic Villa, exceeded our expectations

  • 5 of 5

We have had a fantastic time in a wonderful villa which was all we could have asked for and more. The size of the pool was a huge bonus as there were 9 people in our party. We only had one very minor issue all week which was the Wi-fi connection but this was impressively rectified within 45 minutes of us raising the problem. We walked the 20 minutes to and from the marina most evenings and only returned to the villa in a very reasonably priced taxi on one occasion. We would definitely return to this villa and recommend it to anyone looking to enjoy a relaxing holiday.

Owner's Response: Well thank you for your review, I am very pleased to hear everything was ok. Please note, we are hoping to build a dining area overlooking the pool ready for next year, which will add to the wow factor. I really do appreciate taking the time to write a review like this, makes our efforts all worthwhile!

Comfortable villa close to excellent facilities

  • 4 of 5

This property was as described/photographed on the website. A spacious villa with excellent swimming pool that was ideal for our young family. There was plenty of wardrobe space for our clothes, the beds were comfortable and the plumbing excellent. The booking process with the proprietor was efficient and hassle free. The property had been cleaned thoroughly and was generally well maintained. There was plenty of crockery/cutlery to be used and the dishwasher meant there was no need for anybody to be washing up. In addition, the pool was serviced and the garden swept twice during our stay. There were plenty of pool inflatables for the children (and adults) to play with. There were a couple of opportunities for improvement which is why I have rated this four not five star. The main freezer was full of ice/needed defrosting and the door wouldn't close so was unusable for the whole week. And there was a mismatch in temperature between the air conditioning in the two main bedrooms which meant that one was too warm whilst the other was freezing. The information on the home away app stated that check in wasn't possible until 3 pm, and when we called at 2pm to say we were on our way, alarmingly their office had already closed. Our reception. On arrival was not very friendly, indeed we were directed to a safe and given a pin code rather than be welcomed by a person. However other issues were handled adequately during our stay so don't let that put you off. We had a lovely relaxing week, combining eating in with eating out, and sharing this lovely villa under the same roof as our children/grand children which otherwise wouldn't be possible.
