Fantastic Villa

  • 4 of 5

A great villa located approximately 15 minutes from Albuferia. The villa had everything that you needed and more. The cleaner visited regularly and the pool was well maintained. The only negative would be that the pool was very deep so it wouldn't be ideal for younger children, not a problem for us though. Locally there were several restaurants, supermarket and bars. The walk to the beach was approximately 20 minutes. The beach is beautiful. We did not hire a car whilst we were here but found the local taxi firm to be very efficient and reasonably priced. A fantastic family holiday and would not hesitate to book again.

Nice Property but showing some cracks

  • 4 of 5

Nice location handy for most things required for a relaxing break. Four good sized bedrooms with comfortable beds and ample hanging space. All air conditioned. Kitchen area was nice size with reasonable amount of dishes and utensils. Good sized fridge. Outside BBQ was a nice touch but the grill was a bit on the small size if you had more than 4 people.

The pool was very nice and well protected from being overseen by outsiders. Over all well maintained and clean. The cleaning lady did an excellent job. The building and patio area has numerous large cracks on its surfaces but this did not detract from our pleasure.

Nice clean villa villa

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here with my daughter and son in law and two very small children. It is good that there is a gate that locks to the swimming pool. Cleaned to a high standard by local cleaner, who also kept the gardens beautiful. Quiet close and near to bar and restaurants as well as local supermarkets. Air con was good as we were fortunate to have hot weather.

Great villa with an even better pool

  • 4 of 5

The villa is great and the pool is even better, we wanted a decent sized villa with a big pool just to relax for the week and that is what this villa was.

the Pool was big and it was deep as well!

The villa inside isn't luxury however very homely!

the WIFI was consistent speeds even with maximum devices running off it!

We were a group of adults however the outdoor areas were well gated off well for small children.

There is a mini supermarket in the village which is expensive however about 5 km away there is a bigger supermarket which you can do a big shop at and the fridge freezer is plenty big enough for storage.

We didn't hire a car and taxis were really reasonably priced, for a chilled week the location is great, really peaceful but easy reach of ALbuferia for about 10 euros in the taxi( large groups ask for a van makes it cheaper or they will send two cabs)

The village is fine, there is a few snack shops and if you turn Left on the main road there is a really nice restaurant, it looks French from the outsides because of the Patisserie counter but the food there is really nice at really good prices, ask what their specials are as some of the best dishes are not on the menu!

The only criticism i would have which has made me give 4 not 5 star is communication after we got back we got the deposit back fine it was sent through the post, however an email would have been nice just to say that it was coming through the post rather than transfer as it did leave me panicked for a couple of weeks if we were getting it back!

Overall i would recommend this villa, if you want to be able to walk to a lively resort center like Albuferia everynight then this is not the place for you, however if you want to be in easy reach to Albuferia with a big pool spacious villa without lots of noise then this is the perfect villa for a relaxing holiday!

The property management company office is 30 seconds walk away from the villa and although we didnt have any problems in the week it was nice to Know that the help was there in case

overall a really nice villa for a good price!

Owner's Response: Dear Charlotte Many thanks for your review. We are very pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay in this villa and look forward welcoming you again in one of "our" properties. According to our Terms & Conditions, the breakage deposit is refunded by cheque within 2 weeks after check-out. Most of the times, it only takes us a few days to do this but during the busy months it sometimes may take a bit longer. However, we do our best to not exceed the 2 week time frame (excluding postal delivery delays). Since we understand that our clients would like to receive their breakage deposit as soon as possible, we have recently changed our system and will refund them by bank transfer and no longer by cheque from now on.
