About the property

Beautiful apartment with 2 bedrooms and 2 shower rooms

Club Aquarium is set in the midst of pine forests, just a short walk from Cala Vadella cove, one of the most beautiful bays on the island. Cala Vadella is a protected cove with a shallow, sandy beach and intense blue, crystal clear water. Club Aquarium is in the green and peaceful coastal area of the southwest part of Ibiza and the setting for beautiful sunsets. The whole area around us has some of the best beaches to explore and of course there's Es Vedra (with the stunning Cala D'Hort beach) but we have found Cala Vadella to be one the most beautiful of them all. Wherever you go the sunsets can be absolutely incredible. We have spent a lot of our time in Ibiza exploring all the beaches and off-track paths around the island and we are always stunned by the beauty and diversity of every beach and road we take. There is a great printed guide to beaches in the apartment and we have also recommended some of our favourites. On Cala Vadella beach there is a diving centre and a boat rental service; there are also clothes shops, beach beds and sunchairs, a supermarket, childrens play area and pedallos. The apartment is situated a few minutes walk down a beautiful mature lined avenue to the magical cove and the walk itself gives great views of the mountains, villas and coastline. The restaurants cater for all types of tastes and budgets overlooking the beach. The bars and restaurants are open well into the night. It is a very popular holiday place with a relaxed atmosphere that encourages people to get to know each other and to make friends. Ibiza has such a peaceful environment with beautiful natural landscapes and its easy to get in the car and take trips to discover the beauty of the island. Cala Vadella is famous for its magnificent sunsets and its shallow water, making it an ideal place for children to swim in. Club Aquarium is surrounded by pine trees with stunning mountain views which light up as the sun sets. Our apartment itself overlooks the natural and mature forest with views of the hill/mountain tops, it is breathtaking and very peaceful! It is the perfect place for a holiday and great for families with children. Club Aquarium has its own facilities including a swimming pool, childrens pool, restaurant, tennis court and a games room and supermarket. There are 3 supermarkets within walking distance of the apartment. The one in Club Aquarium and on the beach are open in the summer months typically from 15th May - 15th October. There is free undesignated parking at Club Aquarium. WIFI is available at the apartment. We have 30 GB's of data available per month. There is also WIFI access available at the club aquarium reception for 5 euros for 5 hours and at most bars and restaurants which are within walking distance of the apartment. We have a travel cot which also doubles as a play area. It has a removable mattress and detachable toys. The size is H76, L125, W65cm and its suitable from birth and for babies up to 15kg.The avenues are well looked after - lined with mature flowering plants and trees and the location feels very serene. This is the avenue which leads down to the beach. From the apartment its a 5-7 minute regular walk to the beach and a slow 10 minute walk - you head out of the apartment and turn right and walk 50 yards to the end of our road. Then you turn right again and walk about 100 yards out of Club Aquarium. Then its about 300 yards down the beach either via the steps or the road. The walk is really beautiful as you pass flowers, villas, trees, cats and mountain views. There is morning sun on a large terrace where you can sit and relax. We have also included a flat screen TV with access to British television via satellite, international television news and radio stations for music. There is also a DVD player with lots of recent movies and tv dramas on DVD. We have a BOSE music Sound-dock system with bluetooth facility. We have a hairdryer. The drive to and from Cala Vadella is nearly as stunning as the protected cove itself as you get to see stunning views of Ibiza's coastline and mountain ranges. The apartment is approx.20 km from Ibiza airport which takes approx. 20-25 minutes and is approx 30 euros with a taxi or hire cars are available from the airport. We recommend looking on the website Doyouspain. com for good deals on car hire. Look out for Es Vedra on the way to the apartment. San Antonio is approx. 17 km from Cala Vadella and there is the pretty local town called San Josep which has cafes, restaurants and supermarkets. There is also a local bus service from the beach to various parts of Ibiza if you don't have a car and want to explore the island this way. The pool is normaly open from 15/05 until 15/10.We do not charge for early morning or late night check in's as we know that flights to and from Ibiza can sometimes be at odd hours. For iphone maps please put in this location: 07830 Sant Josep de Sa Talaia, Balearics Cala Vadella Club Aquarium Calle de Carrasca Calle Del Frigola. We recommend you take out travel insurance as we cannot accept liability related to injury to persons, damage or theft of property suffered or sustained by any person whilst at our premises.

About Sarah Strupinski

James and I bought this beautiful apartment in July of last year having come to Ibiza for many years. We found Cala Vadella to be one of the most beautiful and magical coves we have found on the island and we love exploring the mountains and forests, beaches, bars and restaurants.

Sarah Strupinski purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Sarah Strupinski chose San José Obrero

The property is set in a forest and the outlook is simply stunning. You really feel you've got nature on your doorstep and sitting on the terrace with a cup of tea or a glass of wine, some delicious spanish food and the sound of birds and crickets is really very calming. To wake up in the morning and open the window onto a mountain range and trees and the blue sky always being blue is the best way to start the day. Buying local ingredients and cooking at home or going to the beach and having dinner with a beautiful sunset in the cove is really wonderful. Ibiza is easy to get around and you could visit Es Vedra or the local coves or go to one of many of the incredible beaches Ibiza has to offer surrounding the island and the inland villages and towns are so beautiful too. Sometimes it seems like your stepping back in time and sometimes your in the middle of a very cool experience with great music and people dancing the day or the night away. Ibizian people are so friendly and so kind and you can truly be a part of the island through the journey you take, whatever you chose to do.

What makes this apartment unique

Easy access to a beautiful beach 5 minutes walk away. Access to onsite facilities including a swimming pool, tennis courts, supermarket, bar. WIFI. A peaceful large terrace. Air-conditioning. Overhead fans. Easy, free parking. A well equipped apartment which feels like home. Beautiful sunsets. Why not read our guest reviews to see how much other people have enjoyed staying with us.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just returned from Cala Vadella and a very comfortable stay in a lovely, bright apartment.It looked exactly like the photos and in real life was enhanced by the view and peacefulness.Fantastic private terrace where we enjoyed breakfast, nightcaps & stargazing.The apartment had everything we needed plus lots of little extras - beach toys/games, cool box and basic store cupboard foods not to mention a welcome bottle of wine! A nice touch provided by James and Sarah.They were genuinely keen to ensure we enjoyed our stay, giving us lots of info about the island, places worth a visit and practical tips - thanks guys. Location is great being just 5 mins to the sandy beach and a small selection of decent restaurants.

Fantastic location!

  • 4 of 5

I stayed in this lovely apartment during the last week of August. Sarah was efficient and quick in her responses to my e-mails before we arrived.

What a fantastic location! Cala Vadella is a beautiful cove, just a short walk down a steep hill from the apartment.

The apartment itself is set within pine trees and the terrace is a very relaxing place!

Although slightly rustic, the apartment has everything needed for myself, husband and two children. It is very spacious and a stones throw from the shop and pool.

I would recommend this apartment and will definitely return to Cala Vadella in 2019!

Lovely apartment in wonderful Cala Vadella

  • 5 of 5

We (family of 4 with 2 sons 14 & 12) had a great stay in this lovely apartment. So relaxing. Its in a great spot, opposite a small shop & quiet pool but near enough to the beach to walk in the day or for the evening food & drink!

Spar about 5 mins in car up the road much better stocked. Love the vibe in Cala Vadella. Chilled & relaxed but plenty of options. Our best evening was chilling on the beach on a sun-downer and then heading to Beach Bar for few drinks & tapas. Fabulous!!

Spent many happy moments on the gorgeous apartments' roof terrace, listening to music or reading. My family enjoyed the tele & Dvd to cool off when the sun in August is hot! Comfy beds too & area is really quiet so great for holiday lie-ins!

Sarah was great at keeping in touch before, during & afterwards which I so appreciated.

Thank you for a wonderful stay, just what we needed.

Fantastic stay

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is very tastefully decorated, well maintained and clean in a quiet development close to the beach. Perfect for a family. We especially enjoyed the shady terrace for breakfast. There is plenty of kitchen equipment and crockery and a washing machine and dishwasher.

Almost opposite is a small shop and 5 minutes drive away a much better stocked supermarket.

Cala Vadella itself has a good beach, perfect for swimming and a number of good restaurants (especially the Bon Sol).

Despite the fact we arrived quite late at night James met us and took us to the apartment and had even left us a bottle of wine.

Highly recommended.

Car: recommended

From Ibiza airport go to the first roundabout and take the last turning on your right to San Josep. Follow this road all the way to the roundabout at the PM-803 and turn left towards San Josep. When you get to San Josep go through the town and then take the first left after the town (look for brown signs to Cala Vadella which are on a long list of signs for different beaches). At the roundabout take the left hand fork to Cala Vadella and follow this route all the way to the coast. Do not turn right after this once youve seen another sign for Cala Vadella - keep going straight - youll go past a supermarket/restaurant that is over to the left - keep going and you have to slow down now and look for a sign on the left hand side that says Club Aquarium (you are very nearly there) just past a white building (wall) and between a large Europcar sign on a building there is a 90 degree right turn-take that and go down that road and into Club Aquarium then take the first right into Carrer de la Frigola and park outside Plot 13 - and go to apartment number 86. the property manager will see you there with the keys. By cab from the airport ask the cab driver to take you to Club Aquarium, Cala Vadella. When you get there go past the pool on the right hand side and take the first right into Carrer de la Frigola and its apartment 86. the property manager will see you there
