Beautiful Villa, we loved it

  • 5 of 5

We were really impressed with the Villa, Playa Blanca and the Island in general. The villa was easy to find (even the first time in the car in the dark!); the rooms were exactly as pictured, very clean and comfortable. The pool and the fact that you are not overlooked at all makes it feel very relaxing and safe. Local staff were also very friendly and helpful. We would definitely like to return, hopefully next year!

comfortable and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

This is an exceptionally clean and well maintained semi-detached villa situated about 20 minutes walk from the town.The bed was very comfortable and the surrounding area very quiet at night.The pool was excellent with the ideal temperature but the pool cover is a little bit challenging at present.All the appliances in the kitchen worked very well and the maintenance company did a weekly clean of the villa and pool and even emptied our waste bin in the kitchen which we did not expect.There are plenty of good restaurants and supermarkets within the town area and if you do not hire a car there a plenty of taxis operating around the town centre.There is a large flat screen tv in the lounge and once you have got the hang of an internet tv system you will have lots of channels to watch.Also the Wi-Fi works excellently.

Owner's Response: This is a very fair review of our villa, and affirms its suitability for our target market - couples and smaller family units. Apparently the pool roller has become difficult to turn. The bearings need replacing every 4 - 5 years, otherwise it becomes difficult to turn the roller. This can often happen unexpectedly. Repairs will be carried out asap.

Fantastic Cassandra

  • 5 of 5

This was the first time we had taken our 2 Children 7&5 out of the country and we could not have been happier with our choice!

Everything we needed was there the accommodation was spacious clean and very quiet and relaxing, the beds were very comfy and the pool was a massive hit with the kids and us alike!!

The information we got from the owners was comprehensive and very useful

Playa blanca is a great town for families and we had some great days out in the hire car which was very inexpensive and it was surprisingly pleasant to drive as the roads are very quiet and well marked.

All in all we could not recommend Villa Cassandra any higher we will definitely be back soon!!!

One of the best villa's we have stayed in, comfortable, home from home but with fantastic weather, views, swimming pool etc. Everything you need and more! The villa is well equipped, the walk to the town is a pleasant 15 minutes. No one would be disappointed to stay here, Liz and Dave the Managers looked after us so well we could not recommend it more.

Relaxing Holiday with Stunning Views

  • 5 of 5

This was our first experience of booking a villa and it will certainly not be our last! We had a fabulous stay at Villa Cassandra.

Booking went smoothly, with prompt and helpful responses from Brian & Judy throughout the process. The villa with its stunning views was very clean, comfortable and well equipped in a quiet location, absolutely perfect for our relaxing week away without the kids!!

The walk to the seafront takes about 20/25 minutes, but is well worth it as there are many lovely places to eat and drink. Once at the front if you fancy a further 15 minute walk Marina Rubicon offers another selection of beautiful restaurants overlooking the luxurious boats, some boutique shops and a market on Wednesdays & Saturdays.

A big thank you to Liz and Dave, the villa's managers, who were friendly and very helpful, even when we were faced with a problem nothing to do with the villa itself.

We would highly recommend a stay at Villa Cassandra.

villa Cassandra

  • 5 of 5

We are recently bereaved of a family member and our week in the Cassandra was just the break we needed-peaceful and a real home from home. We had a lovely relaxing week and the strolls to the beach front, in the sunshine, has "rejuvenated our batteries. We would love to return- for two weeks next time. We would certainly recommend this Villa and location for all ages- families, couples. Thank you for a really good holiday.
