Clean and nicely situated place (inside the house). It is 5 min walk to the beach; near to some restaurants and grocery shopping.
Owner was easily reachable and quickly responded to any question we had.
Great location but not child friendly
We were a family of 6 adults and 2 toddlers. We enjoyed our stay in Gale very much but probably wouldn't go back to the same villa.
Pros - the location of the villa is excellent. Only 5 minute walk to beautiful beaches. There is a bar at the end of the road that does drinks and snacks. There is also a fabulous Indian restaurant where we ate in and got take away from. The actual villa is huge with 3 spacious bedrooms all with their own bathroom. The basement spans the whole floor of the house and was great for the kids to run around safely. The pool is a good size and there is an eating area.
Cons - We were expecting the villa to be child friendly but it was not. There's a difference between children being welcome and being child friendly. The outside area had steep steps leading down to the back garden and it wasn't fenced off. This was very dangerous for our children and we had to use two of our five sun loungers to block off the steps, which only left us with three for six adults. The inside of the villa also had glass coffee tables and bookcases. Again, this is fine for adults but not for small children.
Our biggest gripe was the fridge. It didn't work properly and was much too small for 8 people. It didn't keep our food cold and we ended up throwing meat away that had gone bad and we had to put drinks in the freezer. The freezer was also very small ad we couldn't even fit a bag of ice in it. I contacted the manager about this and she very rudely told us it was the owner's fault that the fridge was too small and we had too much food in it. I told her that it only contained food for two days and that we didn't expect to have to shop every other day. Maybe it would be sufficicient for people intending to eat out a lot, but we wanted to eat in most days and needed place to store food and milk for the babies.
In general, the villa is worth staying at for the location but it needs some updates. One of the bathroom sinks was broken, we didn't have batteries for all the air conditioning remotes (the manager told us to share remotes between rooms, not ideal). The Tv didn't work and the bedsheets were 2 unmatching single sheets instead of a double. Although the pool was lovely, it wasn't cleaned often enough and the pool area wasn't cleaned at all. The BBQ was dirty when we arrived.
All in all, it's a big villa and the area is fantastic. With some updates, mainly a bigger fridge and safety gates putting up in the garden, we would go here again.
Lovely well appointed and secluded
We arrived at the property earlier than expected and so we made a quick call to the agent who was with us within 10 minutes
The house is in a quiet location but has all amenities within a short walk.You can even get an Indian take away delivery ( Mr Singh)
The house is well equipped and spacious and is ideal for a family or for friends to share.
Would we go there again? YES
I am so glad you had a wonderful stay and liked our place, I sincerely hope to accommodate you again!
We had a great time in the house and the surroundings. Walking distance to the beaches, supermarkets and a golf course. Nice grill and poolarea where we spend a lot of afternoons and evening making dinners. We are more than pleased with our stay.
