A fantastic house

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful house very well equipped, tastefully furnished with a very well decorated garden and a large beautiful swimming pool.

There is everything (kitchenware, dishes, deckchair, towels and bath, mosquito nets ...)

The photos are very faithful

Car essential, very beautiful area, very pleasant neighborhood and ready to render service.

Only small flaw that is not related to Carl and Sharon, flies and wasps.

An ideal place to rest but also golf, walking and enjoy the beautiful beaches nearby

Village 5 minutes by car with shops (mercadona, LIDL ...)

Une magnifique maison très bien équipée, aménagée avec goût avec un jardin très bien décoré et une grande piscine magnifique.

Il y a tout (nécessaire de cuisine, vaisselles, transat, serviettes de toilette et de bain, moustiquaires...)

Les photos sont très fidèles

Voiture indispensable, très belle région, voisinage très agréable et prêt à rendre service.

Seul petit défaut qui n'est pas lié à Carl et à Sharon, les mouches et les guèpes.

Un lieu idéal pour se reposer mais aussi le golf, la marche et profiter des très belles plages à proximité

Village à 5 minutes en voiture avec magasins (mercadona, LIDL...)

Great holiday, dissapointing post holiday charges

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed a wonderful holiday in this relaxing property. It is located in quite a remote area so a car is a must. It is only a short drive to Vera where all amenities can be found. The nearest beach is approximately a ten minute drive away - parking is free.

The pool at the villa is a reasonable size for kids / family to play in. Air conditioning in the bedrooms is very effective. There isn't an outside BBQ so cooking outside requires rigging up a hot plate with extension lead. It works but doesn't have the same effect as a BBQ. Cooking and eating outside during the day was a challenge because of the flies: need one hand to eat and one hand to fend off the flies. Still worth the effort though.

The owners were very helpful prior to our arrival giving us a lot of information as we requested. On arrival we also had a welcome pack of 'fizz' and other essentials - a very thoughtful touch. The villa was very clean.

Why only 3 stars? On return from our holiday our returned deposit was unexpectedly reduced. This was due to the pool requiring an extra clean during our stay (at our request). We were not warned at the time there would be this additional cost. The pool got very dirty and murky quickly. The owner said this was due to sand. We think it was due to dirt being blown in by the wind (it can be quite windy at times). Whatever the cause, it seemed a little churlish to be billed for the clean especially without being told this would be the case.

A stand up fan broke whilst we were there. It just collapsed (it was clearly not in very good order when we arrived - very wobbly and noisy) - the owner indirectly suggested we were at fault as in an email they stated "We haven't charged you for the broken fan".

As a property that is being rented out there were other minor things that should be addressed such as a lot of solar lights in the garden not working, cement work around the pool is cracking, TV instructions very complicated (need writing more logically). These are only minor issues and did not detract from our great holiday.

If it hadn't of been for the unexpected additional charge for the pool cleaning and the comment regarding the fan, we would have given a 4 star rating (4.5 stars would have been more accurate as the additional issues were only very minor).

In summary, we would recommend the property but with the caution of being wary of potential unexpected post holiday costs!

Perfect Spanish getaway

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a lovely peaceful destination this villa is for you! We have had several holidays here, as a couple and with family and friends,and about to rebook for 2016.

The impressive villa is beautifully maintained inside and out and the photos are really true to life ,everything including the pool is clean and fresh, beds comfy and I have never hired a villa with such a well stocked kitchen!!

As previous reviewer said owner explained it was in a rural position and we would need to have a car,but that is a big part of the appeal for us. The local town of Vera had everything we needed and we then ventured into other local resorts and found lots of places to eat and drink. Mojacar Playa and the Old Town are well worth visiting and are easy to get to.

The Desert Springs Golf Club is minutes away,my husband says it is a super course,i don't play but can recommend the restaurant for meals.

Can't wait till my next visit now, the thought of sitting on the balcony with a glass of rosé will help me get through the winter!!

Fantastic villa for that quiet relaxing get away

  • 5 of 5

Villaricos has been kitted out by Sharon & Carl to be the perfect home from home accommodation. As it is fully equipped for all of our holiday needs, they ensured that our stay was wonderfully relaxing.

Villaricos is in a quiet residential area, without being overlooked, making it feel that we were away from everyone.

We had such a great time that we are already planning our return.

Peaceful retreat

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I returned today from two weeks at this lovely villa and just had to write a review! If your looking for a quiet holiday in a very rural area then this might be just the place for you. Although there are other villas around this one, you are not over looked-well unless a neighbour hangs out of an upstairs window! The pool is surrounded by a spacious patio and some nicely planted garden areas where you can lay back and relax in almost silence for most of the time-the only noise was birds twittering and at times a family playing in their pool a few villas away. Inside was well equipped & clean not that we chose to be inside, well who would when you can be outside in the sun! We found the beds comfortable and with the air conditioning got some great nights sleep. Because of the location a car is a must but the owner was clear about that from the outset but when rural was mentioned I don't think we realised just how rural but don't let that put you off a drive over the rough tracks leading to the villa is well worth it and if you have kids they will love the bumpy tracks. You can stay here and think your miles from civilization (although other villas are near) but it's only a short drive and your in the town of Vera. The owners were very helpful, their description was accurate, property was maintained to an excellent standard and we would recommend this place to friends. Our favourite trip out was to Mojacar, make sure you wear comfy shoe as you will have some sleep climbs up through the village but it will be worth the effort when you see the breath taking views. Vera market on Saturdays is an adventure with loads of stall in and out of all the winding streets and a must for most holiday makers.
