About the property

4 bedrooms, private pool, Outdoor BBQ and dining, peacefull with country veiws.

This is stylish and private villa which is 5 mins away from the wonderful village of Santa Gertrudis.

The villa has a new kitchen and large open living room. Outside dining with shade and a fantastic double BBQ.

The villa has its own private pool and a very relaxing chill out area with modern comfortable double and single sunbeds. The area around the pool also has plenty of shade for when you want time out of the sun. The pool has wide 20cm steps entering the pool from the shallow end so it is fantastic for kids to play in or for anyone who may struggle entering a normal pool with ladders.

We also have a pool fence, which allows you piece of mind if you have children who can’t swim. The fence can also be easily removed if its not required.

The Villa has everything you need for home entertainment. All sports, films and kids tv on demand.

We have 24mg super fast wi-fi. Just because you are staying in the countryside why settle for an inferior internet speed.

There is also a speaker system, which connects to your tablet or iphone.

The area is fenced with an electric gate. We also have full security windows throughout the main house.

Stunning country Villa, 5 mins from Santa Gertrudis
average rating of 4.5 based on 6 reviews

Great outside space, location good for exploring island but issues with boiler

  • 3 of 5

On the whole we enjoyed 9 nights in this spacious villa at the end of May. There were 2 couples and 2 teenagers. The only thing worth noting about the layout (which wasn't an issue for us) is that one of the double rooms/en-suite is separate to the main house, though it's only a few steps away.

The outside space, pool & barbecue are lovely and we enjoyed the cushioned sunbeds and the view across the green field to the hills. The villa itself was well equipped. Although it's a bit out of the way, being in the centre of the island it's well located for exploring. We particularly enjoyed the turquoise waters at Cala Conta which Stephen recommended. Santa Gertrudis is very close though we found the restaurants there very pricey. We are used to Puerto Pollensa Mallorca prices and found that Ibiza restaurants seem to be about 25% more.

We did have a few minor issues such as no kettle initially, the shower tray in the separate double room filling with water (fixed about half way through our stay), the sliding doors to bedrooms not staying closed & the fact there was no dvd player as described. We also found the bed in the main double room extremely hard which resulted in very painful backs. (But we appreciate some people might prefer a very firm mattress). It was also the only accomodation we have ever stayed in that has no folder of information on how things work in the house or local restaurants & the island itself. We thought this was a shame as information like this is really helpful and also would have prevented us from having to call Stephen to find out how to make the Sky TV work.

But our main disappointment was the fact we could not take a shower without the boiler switching off and the water going from hot to freezing. This meant we had to have someone stationed outside the whole time to switch it back on. On average it had to be turned back on twice per shower, sometimes 3 times. I started timing how long it took to cut out (we were not taking long showers) and it wasn't more than 3 minutes. Considering the amount of money we were paying for the villa we found this extremely annoying. We repeatedly reported it to Stephen who came out and said he had run the water for 15 mins without it cutting out. Unfortunately for us, the same thing continued to happen so we just had to put up with it.

Sadly the boiler/shower drainage issues put a damper on our stay and due to the price paid, we have to rate this villa 3 rather than 4 stars.

Great villa. Lovely location. Pretty villa with fantastic amenities. Fantastic views.

  • 4 of 5

Great villa. Only 8 mins from Santa Gertrudis - a lovely village with a good selection of restaurants and shops.

The villa has a lovely view across the valley and beyond.

All the amenities were excellent. The villa rooms were open, spotless and extremely well kept.

Stephen was always very helpful and informative.

The only negative was the journey on the unmade road from the main road to the villa.

We would definitely come back!

Amazing Villa!!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a happy stay here and I would really highly recommend it to friends and family. The villa was so peaceful with beautiful views. It was a short drive to Santa Gertudis which has lovely restaurants and shops. Stephen was so helpful with any requests we had. We will definitely be coming back.

Peaceful and private little oasis!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at this incredible villa. The pool area is exceptional. Sun all day into evening but with plenty of shady spots too. Great for spending the day relaxing.

The villa is furnished to a very high standard, spacious, really well equipped and very homely. Fantastic bathrooms, comfy beds and Sky TV!

Just a short drive from lovely Santa Gertrudis with shops and bars and some fantastic restaurants.

Very friendly and helpful owners who made us feel most welcome; see you again hopefully!

Idyllic family holiday home and setting

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from this beautiful villa, I have to say it looked great in the photos but was even more beautiful in reality.

Set in a secluded location with beautiful views and peaceful vibes I would recommend this villa to anyone wanting a chilled villa.

We didn't realise that it was just a short drive to one of the best villages on the island Santa gertrudis which was very upmarket and had a wealth of gorgeous restaurants and quaint square with cafes and beautiful little shops for well heeled visitors

The owner was English and extremely helpful and welcoming, great communication throughout and gave us great recommendations for dining etc (namely Macao cafe in Santa gertrudis beautiful and popular Italian restaurant )

The grounds and villa itself is extremely spacious and well kept, lots of attention to detail inside and out

This does not feel like a rental villa that just ships large groups of people in out all year round, it's was beautiful

Although the villa is secluded I must stress it is within easy reach (we hired a car) of everywhere we visited ibiza old town, San Antonio and a great beach quite well known for its beauty Cala tarida

Highly recommend

A gem of a place just outside Santa Gertrudis

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this Villa for a few weeks and couldn't have been happier with everything.

The locataion is stunning. The property itself is spacious, clean and nicely decorated.

The outdoor space is excellent. Loads of places to lie out and catch the sun or chill in the shade.

The pool is gorgeous and the graduated steps are so useful for people with young children.

The owners are really friendly and helpful.

Fab rental at a fair price, definitely one to bookmark!
