Guestbook comments from the owner

Your villa was amazing, we loved it, it catered to all our needs, I cannot fault one thing. We loved the privacy of the garden, the pool and the grounds and especially the comfort of a very well equipped house that soon became our home from home. G Carson & Family

We were very impressed with the house and the resort, was good to be away from the hussle and bussle of Albufiera, but near enough to be convenient for nights out! One of the best places we have stayed, would highly recommend.

Perfect family holiday. Gorgeous grounds, amazing pool and immaculate accommodation

  • 5 of 5

Lovely villa, with everything we needed. Perfect, peaceful location with pretty gardens and amazing pool. Would recommend to friends and family. Lovely beaches close by. 19 month old daughter loved being able to run around in the garden and we enjoyed sitting outside having BBQ's in the evening

Wonderful House!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 4th or 5th time back and yet again it didn't let down.... The house is fab, has everything you need for a great relaxing holiday. The redesign of the new balcony garden is wonderful, we made very good use of it every evening for dinner and watching sun go down. Pool and gardens are alwAys quiet enough that you feel you have it all to yourself. This house is a def must for anybody looking for a great relaxing getaway! Credit also to Simon and Marie (who manage it locally) for their help with anything and everything! We much prefer to have a car when staying here but there are enough shops etc locally to manage if not. Locally beach is fab too. Would never hesitate to return for another great break.

Perfect apartment with all that you need for a relaxing holiday. Well equipped, only 5 - 10 mins away from the restaurants, beach and supermarket. On the nights we didn't eat out, we would make use of the BBQ out on the patio.

The beach was clean and not over crowded but plenty of water sports available plus sunbeds and parasols to hire.

The pool at the apartment perfect to relax beside or have a gentle swim and quiet., most of the time only us were using it.

Would definitely rebook!

Excellent Accommodation

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this Apartment, very spacious, clean and well equipped. The complex was nice and quiet and most days we had the pool to ourselves, it was very relaxing. There was nice bars and restaurants a walk away, but if you wanted something more livelier it was only a taxi journey away into Alberfuria old town where there was lots of restaurants , bars and street entertainers. Owners Tracey & Ralph were very helpful with our booking and Simon & Marie who looked after the apartment were lovely. Would definetly recommend this to family and friends.

Great Property

  • 5 of 5

Stayed (for the second time) at Tracey's place with my wife and 2 year old daughter. Previously my parents came along.

Fantastic villa in lovely grounds in a nice quiet area, but in walking distance to shops, beaches etc. We had a car, which was useful, but you could probably manage without.

The property is managed by Tracey's brother Simon, who along with Tracey, is ultra helpful and friendly.

Would definitely recommend for young families or people looking for a quiet getaway.

Excellent location

  • 5 of 5

This was our third stay here, and again, we were not disappointed. It's clean, spacious, in a quiet location yet close enough to the town, supermarkets, some great local restaurants and only short walk from the beach. Most days we had the pool to ourselves. Made thorough use of the built-in barbecue, the local supermarket has excellent fresh meat and fish, not to mention fab award winning local wines all at very reasonable prices - provision of a dishwasher and well equipped kitchen makes self-catering a breeze!
