The villa was absolutely perfect for my extended family. On the main level there is a large, open living room/dining area that has doors to the patio/pool area, an eat-in kitchen, a half bathroom, the large master bedroom with an en-suite bathroom. There are 2 bathrooms and 3 bedrooms upstairs - one with a queen bed and the other two bedrooms with two twin beds each. None of the bedrooms are en suite, but the bathrooms are very nice and nearby. On the basement (lower) level of the house, is one more bedroom with a queen bed. This bedroom is quite large and can easily fit another bed. The owners were very accommodating and provided another bed (a real bed, not a folding one!) in this room so my teenage boys didn't have to sleep together. My boys were ecstatic! The house was bigger and more spacious than I expected, which was a very nice surprise.
The pool and BBQ area is fabulous. There are awnings that provide much needed shade and lots of seating for everyone. We grilled one night and had a great time! The pool was cool, but that felt nice after a day in the warm June sun. We spent a lot of time out here enjoying the pool.
The kitchen is well stocked, but was missing a few things that could have made our stay easier. First, there was no pizza cutter or pans to cook a pizza in the oven. Second, there was no ice trays to make ice (we are Americans, so we missed having ice in our drinks and had to buy some at the store). Finally, there were no trash bags in the bins and there were a lot of ants so it was difficult to take the trash outside.
The owners did not speak English and we spoke very little Spanish, so it was difficult to communicate with them. We had to use google translate to have most conversations. The owners were very accommodating and willing to help whenever requested.
The wifi worked great and had a great signal, but we only could have 4 devices online at one time. This was tough with a family of 10, but we made due.
We walked to the nearby restaurant down the road several times. It was one of our favorites of the trip & was quite inexpensive. We also walked into the old town of Calonge, which was nice. There were several grocery stores within a 3-4 minute drive. The town of Palamos is only 10 minutes away and provides plenty of beach, shops, excursions & activities for the family. We enjoyed several day trips there. We also did a trip to Figures, which was only a 45 minutes away
Overall, I would HIGHLY recommend this villa
