Ideal property with young children
We had a great stay at this villa with 6 adults and 3 children under 5. Toddler pool is a real plus and the whole area around the pools is very safe for the young ones. Villa is well equipped with all the equipment necessary, including a large box of children's toys. Great restaurant, a bakery and mini market within 10 minutes walk, beach and larger supermarket about 30 minutes walk away. Owner and local agent very responsive and easy to do business with. An excellent choice if you want to stay in Empuribrava with young children!
Excellent property located in a dead-end street with a (heated) pool and baby pool. Plenty of storage and fully equipped kitchen. Highchairs and a baby bed were provided for the baby and toddler. Plenty of toys were also provided. The kids (and we) had a great time.
Would definitely recommend!
Amazing villa with the additional touches
Fabulous modern villa in a great location with all the facilities you would need for a great holiday. The furniture, fittings, garden furniture and BBQ are all high end with every appliance in the kitchen you would need to prepare a full meal. The decor is lovely with very comfortable beds and plenty of wardrobe/storage space. The private pool is stunning and the added bonus of a toddler splash pool would be great for kids. Off street secure parking was also a big bonus. The wi-fi was very fast and as a single traveller it was nice to have the option of English TV channels. I would highly recommend this villa - Kathryn and Nigel are perfect hosts - and Empuriabrava is a lovely location for a holiday. Plenty to see and do for all.
Very functional house
very functional house. well equipped. the only points of improvement: to have a shower room on the ground floor, missing a colander in the kitchen, stop the automatic raising of the blind and heat the pool.
Thank you for your feedback, we try hard to ensure all of our villas are well equipped and offer the perfect holiday for our guests, our manager lives in the resort and is easily contactable for queries and problems. He would have been more than happy to have called round with a replacement colander and I will ensure this task is carried out immediately for the benefit of our future guests.
As the sun canopy is so large the wind detector and automatic retraction is an essential part of the sun blind to ensure the safety of the guests, unfortunately a small gust will start the retraction process which can easily be rectified with the remote control.
Pool heating is available from April to October, and we only charge the exact cost for the electricity used which is fair for both parties. In August it is not normally required, but still available and would not cost a great deal at that time of year.
With 3 en-suites and a family bathroom we felt there were adequate shower facilities when we first built the villa, but we welcome your advice and will investigate the feasibility of installing a shower room on the ground floor.
I hope you will consider Villa Margarita, or one of our other villas in Empuriabrava for a future holiday.
Great property, well located
We spend a week of family holidays with a baby, for whom the house was well equipped and suited. The baby swimming pool was very convenient and our little baby girl learned how to swim in it. We had a lot of fun BBQing and got good practical advises from the housekeeper. The listing description was accurate. The area was quiet but it's in the middle of many touristic sites and specially, in the middle of painter Dali's world.
Mixed feelings about this villa
The children's pool was a great success with the 5 and 2 1/2 year olds spending lots of time jumping in and out. Air conditioning was very effective. The couple who cleaned the house welcomed us warmly and were helpful, as was the caretaker. The photographs are making the house look larger than it is. The ground floor is adequate for a party of six adults and two children, but the bedrooms are rather small. The owner sent us information by Email which contained a lot of 'guidance' as to what we were not supposed to do. The same information plus a case study of how badly behaved some guests have been was in the house. This did not make us feel particularly welcome. We have stayed in many other properties where the information booklets adopted a much friendlier tone while simultaneously giving us necessary information.
Thank you very much for taking the time to share your experience with us. It is of paramount importance to us that we receive feedback in such a professional and constructive manner.
I am very pleased the children had a good time in the pool as when we built the villa we paid particular attention to ensuring it was safe and secure for young children whilst still providing a fun environment with the toddler pool.
We take on board your comments regarding the contents of our information pack and will review them accordingly, re-wording them to offer safety and general information in a simple format that both our UK and foreign guests will easily understand.
Please be assured that our photos are genuine and not adapted in any way to distort the view or size. When designing the house we allocated as much space as possible to the living areas, and also wanted to offer a private bathroom for each bedroom as we felt this would be preferable to our guests.
I hope your holiday was a success overall and should you wish to return to the area I hope you will consider staying in one of our villas on a future occasion.
