Wonderful pool area

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at Casa Abril for just over 2 weeks and loved the house and pool area. The house is situated in a quiet residential area with a private backyard full of trees and potted plants which made it feel more homely. There is a large covered patio and a superb pool that is large and slopes to a good depth. The double chaise lounge is a lovely feature. The villa is compact with everything you need for your stay. There are 2 large showers and the master bed was really comfortable.

Beautiful, perfect family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for the wonderful experience! My husband and I stayed at Rudi's beautiful home with our two dogs to celebrate our anniversary. The property was bright, clean and perfect for a weekend away with our family. Rudi was very helpful, attentive, and enjoyable to work with. I highly recommend staying here! We hope to be back again soon!

Beautiful furnished home and wonderful secluded pool!

  • 5 of 5

10 days was not enough time here. Absolutely gorgeous home and refreshing pool! I loved the atmosphere of this home.(mixing the antique with the modern). Outdoor living area was perfect. Loved the double chaise lounge, we spent hours relaxing together watching the stars and moon. The pool was clean and very well maintained. Quiet neighborhood..even during spring break! Home was very well furnished with everything imaginable....even had bandaids. This is definately a home we have listed in our "favorites". Rudy was quick to answer all of our questions and needs. You will not be sorry renting this home.

Perfect getaway home! Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

The backyard pool area was the perfect setting to our weekend getaway. Everything we needed was provided! Home is located on a corner so it feels very private. The speaker system really added to our enjoyment of the backyard and pool area! HUGE covered patio in the back was a plus! Close to grocery store and a short uber ride to downtown! Rudi was a great host and really made this process easy! Can't wait to go back!
