About Ann Marie Reohorn

We are a family of 4 who first visited the island when our children were young, (they are now early twenties) and have seen them grow up enjoying the freedom and safety of this beautiful island - there is something for everyone! As with all our guests we work very hard and are restricted to definitive holiday periods, so we try and make everyday count for our guests by sharing the knowledge that we have built up over the last 10 years. We try and make the whole holiday decision making and booking as easy and painless as possible. So from the moment someone chooses to holiday in our property the fun starts! Check out our accolades - they speak for themselves.

Ann Marie Reohorn purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Ann Marie Reohorn chose Olbia

After spending two great holidays on the island we succumbed to 'Sardiniaitis', and had to buy our own property to be able to go and escape as often as possible and at any time of the year. We choose this area specifically as we fell in love with the North East coast, but wanted to be close to the airport (only 15 minutes) and to the year round facilities of Olbia. Our village, Pittulongu is in a fantastic area with great beaches, and amenities. We bought our apartment after falling in love with not only the quiet location, the wonderful view, but also the pretty architecture of the apartment with its traditional features such as the high limed oak ceilings. We lock all our personal possessions away in the third bedroom, so no owners possessions cluttering it up. This enables our guests to treat the property as if it is their 'own bolt hole'.

What makes this apartment unique

The property is conveniently located close to Olbia and its airport, so transfer time is only 15 minutes. Locally we have restaurants, bars and shops that remain open all year round - very important. We are situated in one of the prettiest and unspoilt areas of the island, yet it has the unique benefit of having access to amazing beaches, unspoilt countryside and the glamour of the Costa Smeralda. This property has been set up to use by our family, so very well appointed. The property reflects our personal experience of what we would like to have available to us on our holiday. As we visit Sardinia on a regular basis throughout the year, the apartment is well maintained and as we now know the island very well we can give plenty of help and advice for guests planning their holidays. For additional peace of mind our English housekeeper is always on hand for additional advice, and most importantly she speaks both English and Italian. Finally, yes, it is a view that 'takes your breath away'.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in your lovely apartment, and will tell our family and friends about it- I have already had lots of comments about your fabulous roof terrace which we enjoyed so much in the evenings. All the extra touches,like the candles were much appreciated. We can see why you like Sardinia so much, we had a very memorable meal on the beach at Spiaggia Bianca on Friday night-absolutely magical!

A great family holiday in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this apartment with our two girls (age 5 and 8) for 10 days in August. In the run up to our holiday Ann Marie (the owner) was very helpful with ideas for trips, car hire and our payment was staggered over some months. The apartment was very well furnished and suited our needs. The garden area was a tranquil place to eat breakfast and in the evenings we enjoyed reading with candles and chill out music. The info booklet provided by the owner was excellent and well thumbed by me; it informed many of our restaurant choices and some excursions. The pool which is literally over the road was clean and provided a good alternative to the beach for the children. Thy also made a few friends here from the 'village' of apartments which was fortunate. The local beach 'Lo Squalo' is very family friendly and you can sit and watch your children play safely as the water was very shallow for at least 50m and it was warm. Your view is not obscured by other sunbathers as it is not a deep beach which made it easy to read and 'watch'. There is a rep (Margaret) who helped us out with car hire options. We would definitely recommend this apartment and area.

Owner's Response: This review pretty well sums up what we have tried to provide for our guests. Before buying abroad we used to rent properties, so called on our own experiences to try and provide a comfortable and stylish holiday home not only for ourselves but for our guests. Hence why we provide little things like a beach umbrella and a freezer bag. We also try and be as informative and helpful as we can so that the run up to the holiday can be exciting, and when the guests arrive they have information at hand about beaches, restaurants, things to do as well as locations of shops, banks and markets. We are always available to our guests before and during their stay so that it they require anything they know that they can contact either us or our local representative. We have provided an honest and current description and photographs of both our apartment, and local area so that our guests are safe in the knowledge that the property they are booking is the exact property they will be staying in.

Very well presented apartment with great views

  • 4 of 5

The property was very well appointed and immaculately presented on arrival. It was very comfortable and lots of thoughtful touches like the sun umbrella, red book containing a whole host of useful information such as places to see, restaurants to eat at etc plus very helpful and prompt advice from the owner, Ann Marie, whenever we asked. It's a great location to visit all the fabulous beaches nearby and up to the Costa Smeralda. The apartment is set in a complex with other apartments and access to a nice communal pool which we used. Overall a very comfortable, well situated apartment from which to enjoy the local area and beyond.

Owner's Response: Prior to buying, and renting out our property, we used to rent properties ourselves so used our own experiences to try and add those extra touches, so our guests can arrive and get on with their holiday straight away. We like to offer guests the benefit of our 15 years experience of this part of the island, to help shorted the curve in terms of beaches, restaurant, sightseeing etc. We also like guests to know that there is a contact point both in Sardinia and the UK if they require any help and advice.

We loved it so much we have booked for next year

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was even better than we anticipated. It was extremely clean, well equipped and stylish. The photos do not do it justice!

We spent a wonderful week exploring the beautiful beaches close to the apartment, and enjoyed a morning in colourful San Panteleo market.

The food is the local restaurants was fantastic, we eat lots of fish and drank some lovely local wine.

Our week flew by, one week was just not enough, we wished we had booked for longer. Although we rarely holiday in the same location twice, this apartment is such a great find, and the owners and lady who looks after it are so helpful that we have already booked again for next year, but for two weeks instead of just one!

We would not hesitate in recommending it to friends.

Thank you for helping us find our perfect holiday home.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great holiday in your apartment, and could not believe how good the weather was for the time of year. The apartment is very well equipped and perfect for our needs, we especially enjoyed having breakfast on the roof terrace watching the boats go by. The information you provided was very useful. We followed your tips on restaurants, and really liked Lo Squalo and Mama Beach. What wonderful views! The highlight of our trip was the memorable day on the catamaran. We agree that Sardinia is very beautiful, we loved trying out all the beaches and managed to see a lot of the north east of the island, we especially liked Porto Rotondo and Baia Sardinia We will definitely come back again sometime and stay in your pretty apartment.

Owner's Response: One of our favourite ways to relax and enjoy the apartment is enjoying breakfast and an early evening aperitif on the upper terrace, watching the boats go by in the bay. It really is a beautiful ever changing view. Sardinia is a very beautiful unspoilt island, the apartment is well placed to explore both the coast and interior, so I am pleased that you took advantage of this. We have taken a lot of time to put together an information folder to help direct guests to good places to go. As we visit Sardinia on a regular basis throughout the year, we constantly update this, so love it when we get feedback on restaraunts and locations. We know what we like, but we always listen to our guests views too. Finally, we love it when guests enjoy themselves and intend to come back. Thank you.
