We had a great stay at this lovely villa. It was incredibly well equipped with ample space for our family of 4. The owner provided everything we needed to make our stay extremely comfortable. The basket of goodies on the kitchen table and the beer in the fridge was a very welcome treat on our arrival. The position of the villa is amazing with great views over Benevinegh mountain. The stunning Benone beach is an easy 10 minute walk away.All in all we would definitely recommend a stay in this accommodation. I am sure we will visit again.

“Seems secluded yet only a stones throw from everything”

Golden Sands villa is a lovely 2 bedroom accommodation complete with everything you need.

Despite being right beside and sharing a driveway with another house, this villa is quiet enough and you don't feel overlooked.
Stunning views, especially from the living room and kitchen window and it's easy to forget there's a road so close by.
Exiting the villa to the left you'll find a pub and restaurant, and exiting to the right takes you past a good little take-away and a small shop before reaching the gorgeous beach. All that, plus the Benone tourist complex, are within a 30 minute walk (perhaps much less - we had a slow dog! *lol*).

The friendly, welcoming owner had excellent communication and left us a lovely welcome pack including home made buns and scones.
Some milk was already in the fridge and some tea, coffee and sugar were also readily available.
The kitchen already had everything from tea towels and oven gloves to most utensils.
Quite a few plates, mugs and glasses too (including good, posh cups and wine glasses) with some made of plastic which would be excellent for children.

2 bedrooms. One very good size room with 2 double beds, a chest of drawers and 2 wardrobes. The other a good size 2 single bed room with a built-in wardrobe.

Dogs aren't allowed on the furniture, but that's a perfectly reasonably rule and was absolutely fine for us.
A small yard - fenced off from the other property and has a large gate from the driveway (which can also be bolted at the top) - is good for letting a dog out off the lead safely.

All in all, a lovely stay, we had everything we needed, so handy to many gorgeous places and we'd definitely go again!

“Great place to stay”

This holiday villa is really well situated close to the beach, a few minutes in the car, or easy walking distance.
The accommodation is bright and cheery with a modern open-plan kitchen living area. The owner has thought of everything you could possibly need for your stay. She has the place stocked with cooking implements, hoover, cleaning products, bags, foil, washing powder, milk, bread, cooking oil.... it's like walking into a home rather than a holiday villa. There is a tall fridge-freezer, washing machine, cooker, coffee-maker, toaster, sky tv, etc.
There is a thermostat in the living area that controls the heating for the entire villa and it heats up fast.
The villa looks out over the fields and hills, there are patio doors to enter, an alarm system for when you leave and the patio area is a safe play area for kids, with a tall iron gate to keep them close by.
There are 2 bedrooms, 2 double beds in one room and 2 singles in the other; all the beds are comfortable with bright modern duvet covers.
The owner is a lovely kind woman, happy to help with anything you need while you're there.
