About the property

villa and separate cottage 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms , on the beach

.The property is located 15 minutes from the main airport (Olbia) in Sardinia's north eastern coast most spectacular and desirable spot, literally in front of the islands of Tavolara and Molara national park. Right above the famous rock of 'la tartaruga' [the turtle] with the most amazing beaches right downstairs.

The house is one of the first built in that area, it has since then been remodeled and renovated, still retaining its pristine charm and 360 degree open view.

To reach the house from the closest village of Monte Petrosu, which has restaurants and markets, you need to drive 2 kilometers on a dirt road and through a private gate , once there you are in true paradise. It is a private community with private beaches.

The closest beach is underneath the house only 2 minute walk which takes you to unspoiled white sandy beaches and nature's phenomenal sculpted granite coves.

Breathtaking view: The property is located in one of the most beautiful and scenic spots of Sardina's North East Coast, right in front of the Islands of Tavolara and Molara, which are a wild life sanctuary and a vast protected marine national park.

Great Location and a very relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

A comfortable character cottage in an enviable setting amongst the pines trees with exceptional views and not overlooked. Well maintained, clean and well equipped with new high-end appliances and recently refurbished bathrooms. The house has a very homely feel with books and pictures and is nothing like so many dull rental properties with the usual 6 cups, 6 plates etc scenario. Great communication with Pietro throughout the booking process and it was lovely to meet him and his family at the property at the start of our stay. The clean small beach below the property is accessed via a number of steps and across a quiet narrow 'no through' private road which services a few properties below the cottage. We were a party of 3 adults and 3 young children ages 8, 5 and 2. Even in high season the area is quiet, particularly at night which aided a very restful sleep. Perhaps one thing to consider is the number of steps / levels around the property if you are infirm or have young toddlers; having said that, we managed fine with our 2 year old. Overall a great 'No shoes / no news' relaxing holiday and we hope to return.

Gorgeous views of the sunset

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I heard about how beautiful Sardinia was and decided to visit to see the pristine waters and beaches - we were not disappointed! Pietro was very accommodating and made sure we had everything we needed for the duration of our stay. The location of the house was amazing, which made for gorgeous views of the sunset over the Mediterranean and the village private beach was literally just steps away from the house. The house itself was well kept and clean, and all had necessary appliances in working order. We were so happy during our stay, but very sad to leave! We would love to come back here with our kids.

This house is heaven on earth! I loved every minute that I spent here. The elegant simplicity of the furnishings and beautiful terrace make for the perfect vacation. It is exactly the aesthetic you hope for in a house by the sea. Also, the kitchen and bathrooms seemed newly renovated which was great and it was very clean. I loved the accessories and personal touches around the house and outside. It made me feel very much at home. The view is amazing! We spent hours sitting and eating on the terrace, and never missed the sun set. The garden too is beautiful, we felt nestled and very private, and used the outdoor shower constantly. Just minutes from the house was a private beach, does not get better. The town nearby was also perfect and convenient for daily groceries. The owners were really accommodating and seemed to have a wealth of knowledge about the island. For me this was complete paradise and I cannot wait to go back!

A House in Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

I flew from New York directly to Sardinia to celebrate my birthday with my friends. The house is perfectly located next to the magical, crystal water. The view from the house is incredible. The hosts organized everything perfectly for our arrival. It was one of the best vacations I've had and I will surely be back. Viva la Sardegna!

Big dissapointment

  • 1 of 5

We booked the house for 16 days in May and were very much looking forward to spend a romantic time there with the two of us. As it turned out the overall experience was very disappointing and we left half-way through our trip.

What is good about the house is the location. Absolutely stunning view and the wider area is gorgeous too.

What was very disturbing is that right next door a house is being constructed. The hammering started at 7.30! and went on till 16.30. The owners knew about this as they had just been there themselves but did not notify us of the construction noise. Very misleading.

The house itself is very basic and simple which is fine with us. the furnishing is old and especially the bed needs to be replaced. What is not fine is that the owners must be heavy smokers as they house smells very intensely. The smoke smell is very strong in the bedding, quite disgusting really. Again there was no warning on the website or in the direct communication with the owners beforehand that this is a smokers house. We would never have considered renting it.

Other that that the house was reasonably clean except there was no toiletpaper. Not great if you arrive in the late evening with no amenities nearby!

These sort of unwelcoming signs were everywhere. No diswasher detergent, no washing powder. one set of towels for 16 days! etc. Overall not very welcoming hosts and as it turned out quite rude as well. .

The local caretaker does not speak any English. She is lovely but with all the issues we had we had no way to communicate our concerns other than emailing the owners in New York. Until this day they never replied to our emails. Interesting way of treating your customers.

Our overall recommendation is DO go to Sardinia. It is paradise. After we left this property we found a great place to stay and had a wonderful time. But DO NOT go to this place. Don't be tempted by the pictures, you will be disappointed,

Owner's Response: Dear Ernst, I am very sorry you had such an unpleasant experience. Firstly, let me make clear that the house, is 100% smoke free. If you smelled smoke in the bedroom, it could be that the people staying before you smoked inside the house, which they shouldn't have, and I was not aware of that. The bed is totally fine, is a top of the line Pirelli mattress, only a few years old. The construction situation is unfortunately out of our control, when we were there in April, we met with the contractor, he guaranteed us they where doing work inside the house, nothing major like it turned out, we had no idea there was going to be that kind of noise and I am sorry about that. I also want to apologize for not finding any toilet paper, that was an oversight of the caretaker, and yes, she does not speak english, not many housekeepers in the area speak english. I also want to point out that you stayed in the house for a week without paying the remaining balance that was due at arrival, and then you left the house without notifying us and you left the keys in a bar. The house has being enjoyed by many people before you, is not fancy but has character and like you said, it is in a great location, I think is just not right for you and your family. Pietro
