My friends and I had the honor of being the first guests at Villa Sofia, 8 adults and 2 kids. When I first contacted Marcel (the owner) about renting the villa for NYE back in early November, he was incredibly upfront with me that the villa was still being constructed and although he felt confident that the villa would be ready for its first guests by the end of Dec, there could still be some minor details missing. From that point on, he consistently communicated with me by providing status updates such as when the pool had been completed, after the kitchen was fully installed, furniture purchased, etc….and I was well aware and not bothered that small things such as glass shower partitions wouldn’t be in place yet. Even without seeing numerous photos of the villa prior to booking, I’m so glad that I trusted Marcel and moved forward because Villa Sofia is beautiful! The bedrooms are all a generous size with en suite bathrooms; there are two sitting areas, one on the main floor and one on the second floor both equipped with TVs; beautiful chef’s kitchen and dining area. The part that my friends and I enjoyed the most is the stunning swimming pool which overlooks the beach…we spent most of our time lounging and relaxing poolside. Before we arrived, Marcel also worked closely with me to ensure that my party would have all of the services that we needed: he helped us book airport transfers, private chef, nanny, and dinner reservations. And throughout our stay, Marcel immediately responded to any questions we had and stopped by a few times to personally check in….sincere thanks to Marcel and his wife Jen for being great hosts. I had a fabulous stay at Villa Sofia and highly recommend it to others.
