Great villa, beautiful view, excellent location.
First impressions, the villa is lovely, garden and pool area were great!! We would definitely return!!
There were only a few things that let it down (and stopped the 5th star). One was the lack of information on arrival. Would have been nice to have a “here’s how everything works” guide. The TV has videos you can stream but we only found this out by chance as the owner popped round to build a high chair for us. There was no info about where the bins went, if they recycled water bottles, local supermarket, how to get to the beach etc, small things that would have been quite helpful to us.
The next was the lack of cleaning supplies...there were none other than washing up liquid, and would have been nice to at least have some extra bin bags or some cleaning spray and cloths to help keep it clean each day. We had 4 kids there so food and drink spillages were inevitable!
The biggest downside to the villa was the state of the sofa. It was a leather sofa but had cracked and started to flake. This meant every time you sat on it you got covered with white flecks of leather, the floor got covered in them coming off and needed sweeping 2-3 times a day. It was such a pain!!
That being said, those were literally the only negatives. The villa is in a great location (main strip 5 min walk, big supermarket 10-12 min walk, beach 15min walk) and the view out the back was gorgeous. Plenty of space for 3 adults and 4 kids (one in a travel cot). Air con was in every room and worked very well, all with individual controls which was handy. The kids were in the pool every day, we used the bbq for dinners and sat in the garden with drinks in the evening. The perfect holiday and we would go back in a heartbeat....once they had re-covered the sofa ha-ha!!
We also had our transfers sorted by Chris and both drivers were really nice and very prompt. Everything was very easy and relaxing!
Date of arrival 24 July 2018.
