Guestbook comments from the owner

We all wanted to say thank you for letting us your beautiful villa. We all had a great time in a beautiful part of the world. July 2013



Just to say what an amazing holiday we've had thank you! The Villa was so lovely, such a great space and lay out, the pool was perfect. Also the villa was so clean, which is always important to me. We loved the location, and can completely see why you would own a villa there. We hope to go back again! June 2013



I just wanted to thank you for a marvellous holiday this summer. The whole family had a fabulous time and your beautiful home provided a fantastic location for us to relax and really enjoy ourselves. August 2103



Your house is lovely, and the area offered everything we had hoped for. The information you had so kindly provided in advance was invaluable, and we followed a number of your suggestions. We have rented many houses through Owners Direct, but have never come across an owner who had been so helpful and informative. July 2012

Fantastic family villa

  • 5 of 5

Our 3rd visit to PDR (first time in this villa) and this villa was defo the best! The villa is gorgeous and in a great location (down a dead end- so very little traffic)! It's a short potter to the tennis courts, playground and Club House. A car is essential to get to any of the gorgeous nearby beaches or indeed restaurants and supermarkets (this is the case anywhere in PDR though!)

Great layout- two ensuite rooms upstairs ( v comfy master bed!) and one ensuite room plus a further room with adjacent bathroom downstairs. All rooms are a very good size too. Well equipped kitchen and good size living area and dining area, as well as a lovely outside dining area and BBQ. Fantastic pool.

We were there for 2 weeks and the villa was cleaned and beds changed half way through. Pool guy came several times to clean the pool as well as the gardener popped in a few times (very discreet though and always asked if it was a suitable time to water the plants - if we were there!)

Owner was very helpful from beginning to end- thanks so much Ron!

Would defo recommend this property- its truly FAB!

Suggestions: Without wanting to sound pedantic, I think the towels (both pool and bath) need to all be replaced as I think the majority of them are a bit tired and /or small! In my humble opinion, all the bath towels should be a decent size and I'd recommend for a villa of this standard that both bath and hand towels should all be totally plain, the same colour and good quality! The beach towels also need to be a good size -obviously not as large as bath towels, but not tiny, skimpy, thin things as a number of them that were provided for us to use, were. A towel overhaul needed maybe!!?

I'd also suggest leaving a handful of 5/6 clean kitchen tea towels in a kitchen drawer (otherwise as all the linen is locked away, one has to bother the lovely Paula)

A towel overhaul and accessible tea towels would be the icing on the cake as it really is a FAB villa- these would be my only niggles!

Thank you Ron! We hope to return next year! X

Owner's Response: Really appreciate your feedback. We have found it tricky buying good quality large towels locally on the west coast and they do tend to get boiled to within an inch of their life at the laundry and so deteriorate quickly. Given your suggestion we have decided to buy new towels in the UK at John Lewis and have them shipped over to the house so next year the icing should be firmly back on the cake. New tea towels are already bought and packed ready for when we visit in a couple of weeks! Thanks again for staying with us and very pleased you enjoyed the house, garden and pool. Look forward to speaking again soon Ron

Very nice and clean. Close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in this big house.

Lots of beaches around.

And things to do.

We had a problem with the landry washer.

The owner fixed it the next day.

Wonderful Villa!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the villa along with another couple and their kids for 2 weeks in July. There was ample space for the 4 adults and four young children and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

The villa itself was in fantastic condition. Clean, well furnished and everything you could need and more. As other people have previously commented, little things such as pool towels and a drawer full of DVD's are above and beyond.

The owner was fantastic from the initial enquiry right through until chasing us to pay the security deposit back. He sent us loads of useful information for our stay and was quick to respond when we had a brief problem with the water whilst we were there.

The region around the villa was brilliant. Loads of fantastic beaches, waterspouts, golf courses, the lagoon and Obidos castle to name but a few.

I would have no hesitation in recommending this villa to anyone.

Thanks for letting us stay.

Fantastic villa with great facilities

  • 5 of 5

Ron provided really helpful information about the villa and location prior to our arrival. The villa did not disappoint and was immaculately clean. The fridge was stocked with milk, ham, cheese and jam and there was bread, tea bags and fruit ready and waiting for us. Little things like the pool/beach towels and toys made everything that little bit easier. A great place to stay and excellent communication from Ron from start to finish. He was even chasing us to return our deposit to us! The area is great if you're a golfer but a car is essential as the local shops are a 10 minute drive away.

Very helpful owner, lovely warm pool, lovely place

  • 5 of 5

The owner Ron was very helpful with specific advice about Avis Preferred and directions to and from the airport that made a big difference. He suggested day trips and activities, and places to eat. The property was just what we needed.

Super!

  • 5 of 5

Lovely villa, spacious, well furnished, good sized (and heated) pool, all in a large but quiet complex of villas. Search out the restaurants in the Marriott plus the Italian next to the site shop.
