We lived in Brighton and loved being by the sea and then we discovered Ibiza! We just had to move here and we have never looked back! The casita is our Summer refuge where we escape to from June to September and then we share it with you for the rest of the year. There is no other place, to our knowledge, quite like it on the island.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2000

Its special, its unique, its offered with care and love. Its our home for you to experience and love as we do. For 2 people its somewhere to disappear to for a week or two. To unwind and recharge. April House has a special ambiance and you can tell from our guest reviews that its not just us that feels this way!

The setting, the views, the atmosphere, the cosiness, the pool, the frogs at night in the pond, the stars, the large 4 poster, the meadow flowers, the pool, the home from home comforts, the little details!!! Shall I go on?!......No, why dont you just read our guest and then come and find out for yourselves : )

THE LOVELIEST HOME AWAY FROM HOME

  • 5 of 5
Having just returned from April House we cannot recommend it highly enough. We have had the most perfect holiday in such a wonderful setting, within easy reach from the airport and in an excellent location to explore Ibiza. Steve and MaryAnn were excellent hosts and were friendly and informative throughout the booking process and on our arrival. Steve gave us lots of useful tips about places to visit and practical things such as where to shop etc. and there was also a welcome pack in the living area for us to explore on our first day, which was a nice touch. April House itself is an immaculately kept and well maintained casita, with lots of light and space throughout. The bed has to be the most comfortable I've ever slept in! The rural placement of the villa helps to provide peaceful nights sleep in quiet and darkness, which I ought was a welcome change from the bustling nighttime streets of Britain. We were very relaxed throughout our stay and really enjoyed lounging by the pool surrounded by nature, with trees and plants of different varieties around the pond area - it was truly beautiful. I cannot overstate how fantastic April House is and I know we're hoping to return sometime in the future. Thank you Steve and MaryAnn for helping us have such a wonderful holiday :)

A WONDERFUL PLACE TO UNWIND

  • 5 of 5
We have recently returned from The April House and we still find ourselves talking about how wonderful this little gem is.

The property has a very laid back feel to it and from the moment we arrived we completely felt relaxed. Also, MaryAnn had left us some bits in the fridge to set us off which was a nice touch.

The April House is not overlooked by another property and is very secluded from the main roads and we recommend that you rent a car to get around. This seclusion did allow for restful days beside the pool or evenings sipping on a glass of wine around the pond relaxing in the silence of the evening.

The property is fabulously well maintained, the layout of the property is good and plenty of space to chill out around the TV. There are also exceptional cooking facilities but if you don't fancy cooking there are some first rate eating places in San Jose.

All in all we had an amazing time at The April House and found it to be the perfect place to unwind.

We are already thinking about our next stay!

A SPECIAL PLACE ON A SPECIAL ISLAND

  • 5 of 5
It’s difficult to add anything new to the mass of very favourable reviews here. We got very attached to April House for the week we were there. It’s very stylish but also completely relaxing and comfortable. So it would be easy to laze around the pool and barbecue all week but then you’d be missing what’s so special about the island. The sweet smelling pine forests, the hills and the beautiful little coves have to be explored. And it's extraordinary when the 'weeds' by the roadside and hill paths turn out to be lavender and rosemary. You must have dinner in the “Old Town” and lunch in any of the beautiful little villages. MaryAnn has recommendations for where to eat, and one, a beach bar at Es Cubells, is very romantic. We’ d also suggest a trip up to the peak of Sa Talaia (which overlooks the house) for amazing views of Ibiza. April House is the perfect place from which to enjoy this memorable island.

APRIL HOUSE- A PERFECT HONEYMOON HIDEAWAY

  • 5 of 5
We spent a week here in May after getting married in Ibiza and loved it so much we tried to rebook for October but not suprisingly it's already booked.. maybe next year! The house is a lot bigger than it seems in the photos and is such a short walk to the town but totally secluded, quiet and romantic at the same time.
The house was spotless and gorgeously furnished it felt so comfy and instantly felt like a home from home with books and DVD's too
We had a bbq one night and spent most evenings sipping wine by the pool and eating tapas, there is everything you could need at the house for self catering and a lovely meat/cheese counter a 5/10 min walk away at the local supermarket. We had a car and found it the perfect location to visit other areas if we felt like it. We loved it- Thank you MaryAnn!
p.s the cute tiny lizzards that appear at the far end of the pool love sweetcorn kernals if you fancy a laugh

APRIL HOUSE IN APRIL

  • 5 of 5
As first time visitors to Ibiza, both the island and April House exceeded our expectations. April House is situated on the outskirts of San Jose, close to the main road but at the same time private and secluded. The casita is furnished and equipped to a high standard. The area round the pool has stunning views and was perfect for lazing around on warm afternoons. The central location means that anywhere on the western half of the island is a short drive away and we were amazed at the number of bays and beaches that could be reached within minutes of the property. As it was April, the beaches were very quiet although those south of the airport were slightly busier if that is your preference. All of the beaches were spotless and the Mediterranean crystal clear.

A perfect location for relaxing and unwinding, with lots to see and do. MaryAnn and Steve are ideal hosts. The property is in a great location
Highly recommended.

APRIL HOUSE AND OUR LOVELY STAY THERE.

  • 5 of 5
I have to say, staying in April house surpassed all our expectations The place is beautiful with great views, beautifully styled, a real home form home. Easy to get to from the airport and close to everything you might need. We couldn't have asked for a better place. MaryAnn and Steve are so welcoming and friendly and made our stay perfect. We love Ibiza and love it even more now after such a positive trip and we look forward to booking the cottage again very soon.
