Awesome Villa - April 2018
We were eight adults and one child this villa was perfect, very homely feeling environment well equipped and very clean, the views were spectacular, I really can’t say anything negative about this place. Susana Ventura is a pleasure to communicate with she met us at the villa and gave us a quick tour around. We would all go back tomorrow.
Fantastic stay at Villa Malu
Having just returned from a 10 day stay at this villa (which was not long enough) we are already planning to book again for next year. Three generations of family stayed here this visit with ages ranging from 20 to 73 and there is something for everyone.
Villa is in a quiet area with great views over the marina, which is a 10 to 15 minute walk away and a great place to visit.
When you arrive at the villa it feels homely and very private from any neighbours. The pool is heated naturally by the sun and we were able to swim comfortably through most of the day, a little cool in the morning but very pleasant by lunchtime. It was used extensively by our group to cool from sunbathing.
Three of the four rooms have en-suite facilities, the smallest room downstairs does not, but would be suitable for children. This room was occupied by adults on our visit and that would be the only moan I can muster is that they really missed not having bathroom facilities in that room. Two pull down beds are available and the two that used them in our party had no complaints at all.
The kitchen was well kitted out and the nine of us had plenty of space in fridges and freezer for all food and drinks. Cooker and microwave facilities meant cooking was easy and we probably ate 2 meals a day in the villa as it was so comfortable.
Relaxing is easy in this villa and should the weather be bad you have TV/DVD/Hi-Fi facilities in the living room . There is also a pool table just outside and mostly undercover which looks brand new and was used by us every day.
Wi-Fi works fine on the most part but could be improved as it doesn't cover all areas of the villa but that was a minor issue.
There is a supermarket less than 10 minutes walk away from the villa which we found to stock everything we needed for our visit, including all requirements for a celebration barbeque we had for the family at the villa.
Next door to the supermarket is a great local bar. We used this place daily as a stop off point walking either to or from the town centre. There is also a great Indian restaurant above the bar which we highly recommend.
Susana who manages the villa is great to deal with and generally responds within an hour or less to emails or text messages and will do whatever she can to help you.
All in all one of the most relaxing holidays most of us can remember.
Many thanks for your comments, look forward to seeing in the future.
All the best
4 adults and 2 children have just returned from a weeks stay at this villa. It was a fantastic villa, so much space for the 6 of us and balconies just about everywhere. Lovely sized bedrooms each with their own bathroom. Plenty of space around the villa, tables and chairs in abundance and 10 sunbeds. The kids had a whale of a time in the pool and spent most of their days in there and once the sun had heated it, most of the adults spent time in there as well. Very clean and well looked after, pool was cleaned once during the week and theres a washing machine to wash your towels, sheets etc and with the 35 degrees heat we had they dry in a couple of hours. Susana who is the main contact is very helpful and nothing is too much trouble. We actually left a few bits in the villa and she had them posted to us. I would definitely recommend this villa and would love to go back next year. We hired a villa opposite Villa Malu from Susana two years ago and this was also spectacular. The views are amazing and 15 min walk to town or marina, but I would advise a taxi back as its all uphill (about 5 euros). Susana will also arrange collection and drop off to the airport so all in all a fab time.
What can I say? 10 of us have just returned from a week in this Villa. I can tell you it was very spacious for 10 people. It included a table tennis table which my 16 year old son spent most of his week on. It had all the facilities you need to make you feel at home. The views were spectacular. The walk to the old town was about 15 minutes on a slight downhill. Walking up can be more tiring. But there are abundance of taxis which cost approx 4 to 5 euros. There is a bar and supermarket closer within 5 to 10 minute walk. There is a beautiful walk to the marina. We went to a hypermarket one day which is approx. 10 euros in a taxi. It has all the shops from back home and a place where you could spend the day shopping. Most of our time was spent in the Villa. It was too good to leave. We had no cleaning service, but had a washing machine to refresh our towels during the week. There is a strong wifi but is not great around the pool area. I really cant say anything though negative about this place. We would all go back tomorrow. Was amazing!!!
