Amazing Stay at Super Rock retreat
Submitted: November 20, 2011
Stayed: September 2011
We spent a week at the Super Rock Retreat and had an amazing time, the views were breathtaking and the villa surpassed our expectations. Minus the mix up of dates everything was just perfect. Elene was a great hostess, she drove us to her local butcher so we could do some BBQing and was always there for anything we needed.
There were 5 adults in our mid to late twenties and it was just perfect for us, My husband and I had the upstairs bedroom while the other three shared the mainfloor bedroom. The location was perfect being a 5 minute walk from the beach. I would reccomend renting a car if your staying here because you can then venture the whole island. it was also not a problem getting taxis when we wanted to go out in the evening, they were usually there in 15 mins and ranged anywhere from 15 euro to 30 euro.
Everything about our week in the villa was perfect, the shower was amazing, beds were comfortable, kitchen was large enough to prepare meals and eat dinner outside. Bring bugspray as it is summer and thats just the way in goes in summer but usually there is a nice breeze that keeps them at bay.
I recommend the villa for all ages, if you want peace and quiet you can have it and if you want some nightlife you just have to go into town. It was a perfect balance for us and we had an amazing time!!
Owner's Response: I'm glad to hear that your honeyoon at the Super Rock Retreat was so satisfying and memorable!
It seems that the villa was a good choice, as you had the possibility to enjoy the privacy so important to newly weds, together with the pleasure of the company of your guests.
About the date mix -up, the lesson learnt is that all correspondence needs to be conducted in the original email request through the Homeaway,so that I have it all on record on one page to avoid later, free radical mails, hiding away in my very loaded email account.
Anyway, all's well that ends well -after the initial shock we managed to get you pretty comfortable and settled rather quickly, I might say!
About the bugs... they come with the natural surroundings, I'm afraid, and in spite of the mosquito protection on windows and doors, a few pests manage to slip indoors - nothing that cannot be remmedied by natural citronella body spray( great local products available) that protects one outdoors also.
I was really amazed to hear that European friends of yours- fashion people, coincidently and unawaringly, enjoyed the same premises earlier on in the season- small world, with the internet!
Hope to have you here with us again in the future, to celebrate wedding anniversaries, maybe?
Be well, Elene.
