About the property

walking distance to blue flag beach and close to Cala Conta and Cala Bassa

The villa is the home of a stylist and her children. The Moroccan design runs throughout the house and outside areas. It is individual in style, modern and relaxed. The property has a tranquil feel, set in wonderful walled gardens with a courtyard area, creating the sensation of being in an oasis. The natural-looking pool area has views over the countryside. All bedrooms have their own bathroom. There is high speed FIBER Wi-Fi, 4K TV with ALL channels, outside speakers and a dock for iPods.

The villa has multiple areas for relaxing. There are three terraces in the apartment and three different areas in the main house - the courtyard, the pool area and the kitchen terrace. Many clients enjoyed this as it means family and friends can all relax in their own space. The property is in a tranquil location but it’s easy to get to other places on the island – though many clients say they didn't want to go out because they were so chilled at the villa!

A lovely local Blue Flag sandy beach, as well as bars and restaurants, are all within 10 minutes’ walking distance, while some of the island’s most famous sunset beaches are just five minutes’ drive away. Nearby there is also the beautiful little hamlet and hilltop village of Sant Agustí, with wonderful restaurants and views.

The entrance has a courtyard with a dining area and table and chairs, this then leads onto the main pool area which has a BBQ and chill out house for you to escape the Ibizan sun and take in the views over the surrounding countryside.

The natural stone pool with its enticing blue/green waters blend into the gardens perfectly and are a great place to cool off. Outside shower.

The Villa is at the end of a camino and there is ample parking for two cars outside the front gates and in the drive leading up to the house.

There is a spiral stairway next to the entrance which leads up to the upstairs apartment which has its own en suite bathroom, double bed and a large terrace.

There are two roof terraces which have chill out beds and relaxing views on to the open countryside fields.

Pass through the courtyard and enter in to the main house, here you will find an open plan living room and kitchen. To the left is a sabina wood chill out area, a TV and a feature fireplace. There is a distinctive Moroccan feel about the decor and lighting which makes you feel relaxed and at home.

The Master Bedroom has a large double bed, walk in wardrobe and en suite bathroom in natural tiles with a large round bath.

There are two more bedrooms in the main house. Bedroom 1 is en suite and has a shower, sink and toilet area with a fitted wardrobe and double bed. Bedroom two has a double bed, dressing area and a separate bathroom with a bath and shower.

There is a large dining table between the kitchen and open plan living room, with feature light above the table.

The kitchen is fully equipped with a large American fridge freezer, coffee machine, gas hob with 5 rings, oven, dishwasher, and a pantry storage area. There are plenty of work surfaces for preparation, with views to the exterior and gardens of the house.

We provide all your linen and towels. The utility room is fitted with a washing machine. You will also find a drying line, iron and ironing board and pool towels.

As you enter out from the main house into the courtyard area there is another dining table and chairs and a shaded corner with beds for relaxing. There is also a small built in BBQ in this area.

The fourth bedroom is attached to the main house. It has a double bed and en suite bathroom with a large shower. The entrance to this leads out onto the courtyard.

As you head to through the archway to the pool area, you have the utility room on the left and a beautiful gardened pool area with sun beds and sculptured gardens. One of the features is a chill out area in the shade at the end of the garden. We have been very careful to retain the property so that it blends into the local landscape and still have a lot of the original Ibizan plants and cactus in the well cared for gardens.

Due to the spaciousness of the property and the fact that the bedrooms all have their own bathroom this is a great property for larger families or groups of friends and you do get the feeling that you have your own space.

There is also plenty of outdoor space to make you feel comfortable and is great for outdoor entertaining. If you want to read your book in the shade or sip cocktails next to the pool topping up your tan.

The close proximity of the Villa to the gently shelving beach at Port Des Torrent is also a major selling point, from here there are regular ferries to Cala Bassa, Cala Conte and San Antonio, at under 10€ return. Its a great way to get around and they run into the early evening.

The beach of Port Des Torrent has some great restaurants and you can catch live music and the sunsets from here at night. The mojitos in the bar at the far end of the beach are the best on the island in our opinion!

To summarise this is a great spacious property within easy distance of all the major attractions. It also retains much of the Ibizan architecture and appeal. The moment you step into the Villa you get a feeling of relaxation and quiet, it is a very tranquil property, centred around the oasis of the pool.

We are sure you you will have a fabulous stay in Rayo De Sol.

About Louise

I am a busy stylist with two children. My work can take over so i love spending quality time with friends and family. It is really important to me that my living space is relaxing and functional.

Travelling is a must!

Louise purchased this villa in 2008

Why Louise chose San José Obrero

I bought the property in San Agustin because I love the beaches in the area and i can walk to one of them. The villa has a wonderful feel about it, like an oasis.

My children also needed somewhere well connected, not too far off the beaten track. There are buses and even boats in the summer that take you to different areas.

What makes this villa unique

The villa has multiple areas for relaxing. There are 3 terraces in the apartment and there are 3 different areas in the main house. The courtyard, the pool area and the kitchen terrace.

Many clients have enjoyed that as family and friends can relax in there own space.

The property is tucked away but not too far from anywhere.

Many clients say they didn't want to go out because they were so chilled at the villa!

Guestbook comments from the owner

"A real oasis and wonderfully peaceful"

"I just wanted to thank you once more and to heap praise again on your wonderful place. We all had a great time and wished we could have stayed longer.

The situation is excellent, near all those tremendous beaches and with town centres nearby, but nicely away from the general hubbub. You've done a great job with the decor and we all felt the most deep sense of comfort while staying there. In fact, it was very tempting not to venture out at all. Despite only staying for a week, we all felt that we have been able to completely relax and recharge our batteries. The island has a lot to do with that but we wouldn't have felt nearly so blissed out without your villa and the things you've done to make it so pleasurable (the shaded divan, the outside speakers, that big bathtub! I could go on) All this and Spain won the World Cup as well. Magical.

Sorry to sound so gushy but I'm still on a bit of a high even now.

A beautifully presented villa with plenty of indoors and outside spaces to share or retreat to.

  • 5 of 5

Rayo de Sol has been very thoughtfully laid out with the pool area separate from the more sheltered outside courtyard dining area which leads off of the main living area. The four bedrooms in the villa, each with their own bathroom (3 of which are en-suite) have been individually decorated by Louise to a Moroccan theme that gives them a real charm. Comfy beds, fresh linen and plenty of towels. Only two of the rooms have air-con, but we found the ceiling fans in the others to be more than adequate during our stay in September. Instant hot water is supplied from three separate Calor gas cylinder boilers, a couple of which ran out towards the end of our 9 day stay. These were replaced within hours of notifying Louise. The main living area is a huge light and airy kitchen/dining/lounge area which offers a massive dining table and a very well equipped kitchen. A huge fridge to chill your beer and food, a dishwasher and a range gas oven and hob. Again, don't expect mains gas pressure, so your pizza will take 5 mins more to brown! Plenty of crockery, glasses and utensils of every description, although the most adventurous that we got in the culinary department was probably the aforementioned pizza and a few pasta creations. Mostly we grazed on the fabulous charcuterie, cheese and fresh fruit and veg that is available from the many supermarkets nearby. There are sofas to flop on and watch the large HD TV which has a wide selection of channels including lots of kids stuff which pleased the 1 year old in our party. There is good WiFi in and around the villa, although more patchy by the pool. The music system is set up so you can play tunes either or both inside and/or by the pool. The pool area itself is divine. Beautifully and thoughtfully laid out, it is maintained twice a week. The pool is just long enough to enable a few strokes. There are sheltered areas and parasols if the sun becomes too intense and very comfy sun beds. In the pool room are pool towels and a few for the beach. There is also a large washing machine and a box of assorted kids toys. I would recommend hiring a car as it is a 10 min walk to the main road and the bins that everyone has to use to dispose of recycling and waste. 5 mins more to the nearest beach. Better ones further afield. Taxi transfers to and from the airport will virtually pay for a weeks' hire car. Thank you Louise for allowing us to share your beautifully handcrafted villa and being the ideal hands off host. x Simon +8

Fantastic villa for a wonderful holiday with family and friends

  • 5 of 5

We had the most wonderful holiday in this fantastic villa which is in a great location, peaceful and relaxing but near enough to great beaches as well. Louise and Jason were great and very welcoming and helpful particularly when we got lost finding the house. Note to all guests...follow Louise's directions to the villa, not your sat navy or iPhone. The pool was well maintained as was the house during our stay without being intrusive. We did quite a few airport runs for various members of the family which was very easy indeed. Overall highly recommended and we would certainly return.

Lovely villa, terrible experience

  • 1 of 5

The villa itself is lovely and easily accommodated our party of nine. It was spacious and well decorated. It was well up kept. However, we experienced several issues with the villa and its owner. Out of the 5 rooms that the villa had, only 3 had air conditioning and only 2 of those worked. The villa was cockroach infested. The location of the villa is very very awkward. Most of the taxi drivers refused to take us to the villa and the ones that did had a lot of trouble finding it. However, the main problems we experienced were because of the villa owner. There was a lack of communication prior to and throughout our stay causing us many problems. Whilst we were struggling to find the villa upon our arrival in Port des Torrent, after trying to contact her she stated that it was an inconvenient time for her and that we were to find the villa ourselves at 11pm. Upon arrival, we had no welcome instructions or pack and were unaware of any expectations or features of the villa. We had several of the owner’s employees arrive during the week, unannounced and disrupted our holiday. Had we known about these unexpected visits we would have planned our day accordingly. During our stay, we had an intruder during the day, and her sudden appearance was very unnerving for two of the female members of the holiday party. When we were checking out, the owners was late to the villa and as a result we had to leave under a rock and have not actually ever met her. During the booking experience, she attempted to use the exchange rate to her advantage and tried to get us to pay a lot more than the originally agreed price. When she had to return our security deposit, she charged for rubbish removal as she did not ask us to remove the rubbish from the black bins outside. We were charged for a sunscreen on the sheets even though the towels were already stained upon our arrival. Unfortunately, the experience with the owner has completely marred what would have been a lovely holiday.

Owner's Response: Dear Jaime I am shocked by your review. You said you were very happy when i spoke to you on the phone and you had a fantastic time. I am very sorry you feel this way. The villa is only advertised with 2 air con units. There was never any mention of cockroaches? The location of the villa is very easy and taxis come and go all the time. I have never had anyone complain about location. I sent you clear instructions on how to get there and spoke to you on your phone on your arrival. It wasn't an inconvenient time, i was working in Formentera for 3 days. I spoke to you and said any problems please don't hesitate to contact me. Before your arrival i asked you if you would like me to get you any shopping because you were getting in so late. Your reply 'we only want a few basics as we are going shopping the next day, no need to spend too much money' I agree that the villa needs an instruction pack. There is information on a pin board with my details. The only 2 employees that came to the villa were the gardener and pool man. The days that they come to villa were on the board. When you contacted me about the woman entering villa courtyard I went straight to the police station an filed a report about her. She has not been seen since. Unfortunately on the morning you left i missed you by 2 minutes. I saw you walking down the road with your suitcases. If i had know you were having a problem with taxis to villa i would have helped you but you never once communicated that to me apart from when i spoke to you on arrival. I have never tried to charge clients more because of the exchange rate. I didn't in your case either. It was purely a misunderstanding. When i returned the deposit i explained that i had deducted £168 from £1000 for shopping you asked me to get, stained sheets and rubbish removal. The reason i charge for rubbish is to stop vermin, ants and cockroaches. In the heat in the summer you cannot leave rubbish sitting around all week. This is stated in the booking conditions that you were sent. The towels are checked weekly and come straight from laundrette. I apologise if one slipped through. I can only apologise again for the way you feel. This is the first bad review i have had. It was unfortunate that the week of your arrival i had been booked on a job off the island. Please reread the booking conditions and villa description, you will see that some of your points are not valid. I am a fair person. Kind regards

Outstanding stay in ibiza

  • 5 of 5

Just back from Louise villa where we stayed 1 week. The villa is just perfect, we loved the space, the decoration (Louise has a really nice style of life 😊), the location, the pool area, the BBQ, the terrasse in the top floor, all the facilities ...It is a truly home for having great time with friends and family. Louise is just a lovely host, helpful during all the week.

It was just a perfect stay, and I am looking foward to go back very soon.

have returned to this villa twice now as it is perfect! Great location, close to some of my favourite beaches, within easy distance of shops etc, this beautiful villa is well equipped and and really cosy with a home from home feel. The outside space is stunning and private, lots of sunny corners to chill or party, the upstairs terrace has wonderful views across the countryside and the villa has been refurbished in a very stylish way. The owner, Louise, has always been more than helpful and the villa spotless. Great for a family holiday or a group, girlie getaway or couples. Only a ten minute walk to Port Des beach with a choice of beach bars, also buses.

Ibiza airport is 20 minutes’ drive.


A local Blue Flag beach is within 10 minutes’ walk. Sant Agusti and Sant Josep villages are 5 minutes’ drive; San Antonio is 10 minutes’ drive and Ibiza Town is 20 minutes’ drive.

The beautiful nearby beach of Cala Conta is famous for its amazing sunset and great restaurants, including the popular Sunset Ashram. Cala Bassa (where Kate Moss was photographed for a Vogue campaign) is also renowned for its beauty and is rated as the 7th best beach in Spain. It is now home to Cala Bassa Beach Club. Cala Tarida beach has watersports and great restaurants, as well as Cotton Beach Club cliff top restaurant. All are within 5/10 minutes’ drive. Sa Caleta and Cala Jondal are 15 minutes’ drive with some fabulous mix of beach and waterside restaurants.

There are some wonderful restaurants in the area. The local family restaurant and supermarket Es Cucó has a selection of organic, local and international produce. Sant Agusti has a couple of my favorite restaurants, Can Berri Vell and Can Berri. Sant Josep village has a great little café as well as restaurants with German, Spanish, French and Italian cuisine, including Es Boldado, an amazing fish restaurant on the edge of the cliff looking out to sea. And in 15 minutes you can be at the Blue Marlin beach club, which has now taken over Yemanja restaurant too. There is also a golf course 30 minutes away.
