About dawn Prendergast

I managed the Alcaidesa development as Managing Director of Costain International and liked the place so much that i decided to build a villa for my wife Dawn and our three children Sarah,Anna and Rachel. We have had some great times at the villa together and seperately with friends including some old friends from wales where we were brought up. We have some good neighbours in David and Eugine.

dawn Prendergast purchased this villa in 2008

Why dawn Prendergast chose La Alcaidesa

I chose this spot because iof the view and quiet and tranquil area.

it is close to an unspoilt beach yet has sufficient facilities nearby. With the quitcky Gibraltar within 15 mins and the surfing area of Terifa within 40 mins makes this an ideal location to explore Andalusea

What makes this villa unique

The view from the villa is spectacular and the area is so peaceful and quiet. In the summer i love spending the day around the pool and at 5pm going to the polo and watch a match with a gin and tonic before having an Argentinian steak.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just a quick note to let you know we had an excellent stay in your lovely villa, Steve. Everything went smoothly and Kate was very helpful throughout. And the weather was great as well, so we couldn't have asked for much more.



I think we left everything in good order.



Thanks for making the booking so easy at such short notice.



Best regards,

Vanessa

Impressive villa with great pool and views.

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at the villa which was ideal for our whole family; both grand parents and grandchildren had a very enjoyable stay at the villa. The pool is very good and well maintanined. The villa is beautiful and all bedrooms have excellent ensuite facilities.

The only slight downside would be distance from big supermarkets.

Very nice villa with outstanding view

  • 5 of 5

Very nice villa well described by the owner. Swimming pool is very nice and the view is amazing. We can recommend the villa without any risk of disappointment. The Mediterranean sea is near the Atlantic so not as hot as we thought will be the only little negative surprise...

An excellent villa - highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

The villa provided everything it promised. It was spacious, built and decorated/furnished to a high spec and very clean. Unlike some properties we have stayed in, it also had the feel of a real home.

We liked the honesty bar system - it saved having to go straight out to the supermarket to stock the fridge!

We'd recommend hiring a car to explore the area, for eating out and for shopping at nearby supermarkets.

The villa is situated on a hillside, with superb sea views. It was very tranquil due to its location - there was no through traffic or other road noise and no loud music - which made for a very relaxing time.

We used Gibraltar airport, which was only 20 mins away - very convenient.

We would happily recommend this villa to others.

Excellent villa in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

This excellent villa was exactly as described and was beautifully equipped with high quality furniture and fittings, and it was immediately apparent that it was well maintained and cared for.

The outside verandah and the large swimming pool were well used.

The facilities of Alcadeisa were all easily accessible and travelling to the local villages, marina, golf courses and restaurants did not take long at all, including the very interesting Gibraltar.

I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending this villa for a family or group holiday.
