“Better than the pictures, lovely quiet location with everything you could need”

We decided to rent this property as a quiet retreat for the family (children 7 & 10) and it didn't disappoint. From the smooth transfer arranged by the owner to the return back to the airport at the end of the week, everything was perfect. Bev met us on arrival at the villa to explain everything and she was so lovely and helpful. The pool is cleaned during the week and loads of towels are available for use (both beach and 'nice' ones). We covered the pool every night and this kept the temperature at a nice even 30 degrees The sky plus was an added bonus and there are lots of dvds to choose from if you fancied a movie night. Decor-wise, it was like living in one of the ikea showrooms; it made me want to redesign my own home!
We made use of the free bus to visit the crocodile park and had a fantastic time. It left at 10:35 from the shopping centre in San Agustin and retuned to the park at 2pm for the return journey. Price of entry was very reasonable (around 35 euros for a family of four) and food in the restaurant was very good. The only negative was that we wanted to stay longer but couldn't because we had to catch the bus back!
The local shop is a 10 minute walk away and there is even a shopping trolley in the villa so you don't have to carry the heavy water (and wine) back up the hill. The beach is just over the road from the shop but to be honest we didn't bother going as the villa had everything we needed. We took a taxi to nearby Playa del Ingles which was about a 15 minute ride but only cost 6 euros (each way). That has a McDonalds for anyone interested (I blame the kids).
I really can't praise the villa enough. If you are looking for a nice quiet location and a place that feels like home from home, then look no further. I discovered that there are not many reviews because the people who go return year after year. Perhaps its like a best kept secret - very wise! I will break the silence and share how wonderful it is. Hopefully there will still be a week free for us to return!
