“Home from home”
Reviewed 3 July 2017 for a stay in June 2017

This is the second year running we have stayed here. As a party of 7 the villa is a perfect size, ample room for the 3 kids age 3-11-13 to spread out and enjoy the pool area. The bedrooms have great storage and all air con! The BBQ area out side is a definite selling point it's lovely to be able to sit round the table whilst cooking tea!
The villa has everything you need to eat in but it is also located close enough to the main strip to be able
To walk out (8 min) approximately. The location is so quiet you can sit by the pool and not hear anyone for hours.
Gil is a great owner nothing is to much trouble and he is always on hand for any questions you have!
I would recommend this place to anyone and I hope we will be back in our second home soon!!!

thank you Gil

“We'll be back”
Reviewed 29 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Travelled with my family, including 3 grandchildren aged 5,4 and 3. Villa exactly as on web site. No surprises ,apart from the fact that the villa was even better than expected. From a well equipped kitchen to plenty of towels. Pool fantastic, with pool man calling in the week and gardener calling to water the lovely garden. Fence around pool ensuring childrens safety. Godsend. Excellent location with little supermarket just 5 mins walk away. Outside covered eating area with BBQ an absolute dream. We ate here every night. Washing machine really useful and dishwasher used daily. Highly recommended. Had a problem with satellite tv but owner responded immediately to my e-mail and he arranged for technician to call. Nothing too much trouble for him. Would highly recommend. Not forgetting entrance front gate locking and only opening with key making it secure for young children.

“Superb Villa”
Reviewed 11 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We were very impressed with the villa. The standard of the rooms and the flexibility of the pool along with the games room was great. The size of the rooms was impressive and the fact that the villa is a corner location gives more privacy.
On arrival I would ask locally easiest way to get to the 'strip' as its was much closer than we initially realised.
The walk to the bottom of the strip is approx. 20 mins, but easy to get taxi back up to the villa from the taxi ranks.

“Lovely villa”
Reviewed 11 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016
1
person found this review helpful

We stayed in this beautiful villa for 10 days in June! When we arrived we was not disappointed the exterior of the villa is beautiful! We arrived before check in time so left our luggage on the side of the villa and went to explore the area.
When we checked in we wasn't greated by anyone and had to find our way round the villa. This wasn't such an issue but would have been nice to have someone to speak to and tell us about the villa and the area. I understand that this was due to privet issues which I totally accept!
We settled in to the villa and went to the lovely pool area which the three kids absolutely loved and spent the entire holiday in it! The pool area is lovely very quiet but spacious excellent gated pool so my two year old was safe at all times of the day. The bbq area is amazing we enjoyed a few evenings sat out enjoying the evening sunshine whilst the chef (my dad) cooked us some lovely meat from the local supermarket the butchers was amazing the meat was to die for and fantastic prices!!
All the bedrooms are big and spacious with ample storage In them. The kitchen is lovely could just do with more glasses to drink out of.
The bedding was changed once during our stay by a lovely lady who worked very quickly with out disturbing our family.
The location of the villa is about 5-6 min walk to the top of the strip, 3-4 mins to a supermarket.
My only problem was the pool which we reported as it stopped filtering and wet green after 3-4 days of our stay but the owner had some out to it by 9am the following day!!
Loved every second of our stay in this villa!! We really wanted to stay here again next June but having looked In to this the price has increased significantly which is a great shame as I feel we paid what it's worth this year!!
