We are based in the UK and have been married since 1982, we have two grown up daughters and are now proud grandparents of both a granddaughter and grandson. Gary is a Engineer and I am a homemaker.
We wanted a property that ticked all our boxes, on a good community, not overlooked, light and airy, large pool with spa that is not too far from the parks but also near to supermarkets and other amenities. A property that would be a good holiday home for both ourselves and our guests.
Whilst most people would have been happy with the villa as it was we drew up and have been carrying out a scheme of upgrades, starting with replacing the linens and cook/dinner ware, we then replaced the bedroom furniture in the master bedrooms, replacing and increasing the amount of patio furniture, replacing the fans in the bedrooms with thermostatic fan/lights, converting the garage to a bespoke air-conditioned games room, repainting the pool deck, installing mood lighting to the pool & spa and installing a pool side thermostatic shower replacing the existing lounge fan with a large remote controlled fan and with further upgrades planned
