Overall we enjoyed our stay in this nice apartment. We were with a family of 6 (6,13,13,17 and 2 adults).
Indeed the rooftop terrace is amazing with its incredible view! Especially right before sunset till dark to look at the stars...;-)!
We had a big car (Renault traffic) and was sometimes difficult to park and make maneuvers in the very small streets. But the little town of Baunei was so nice to experience for a few days. It's only a short drive to Gola Di Goroppu (35 minutes). And Santa Maria Navaresse is 15 min which is a very nice town at the sea for dining in evening or go to the beach during the day.
Tip for the hikers: there is a small climb/walk to the top at Baunei. It starts almost right at the house ( 100m up hill).Just follow the wooden signs "Janas" or something.
The apartment inside is ok. But with a big family we missed a second toilet. And the water drain of the shower wasn't working properly. So all the water came on the floor and flows into the kitchen. Especially when everyone wants to shower shortly after one and other. This shortens your shower time to a max of 2 minutes.
The owner responded quick on the complaint, but unfortunately wasn't able to solve this problem properly.
We had a great time staying at Casa Bardilla. The home seems to be recently renovated/remodeled and is rather spacious. It was very clean as well. I would definitely stay there again. The two terraces are wonderful for relaxing during the evening. The house is a short drive from Cala Goloritze, Santa Maria Navaresse / Tortuga Beach, Lido Orri, and various historical sites. There is no dedicated parking spot, but there were always parking spaces available nearby. The town has a grocery store, gelateria, and various restaurants within walking distance - all quite inexpensive. (1.50 for a gelato, 4.50 for a 2-liter bottle of wine, 9 for a steak dinner. Much cheaper than Santa Maria Navaresse.)
There was a little confusion regarding where to meet the property owner's representative (incorrect instructions from their property management company) that cost us a couple hours, but the owner was gracious & helpful with sorting that out. (The owner and her daughter were wonderful to deal with & easy to reach.)
I can only think of two slight negatives. First, there is a 100 euro cleaning fee which I wish was disclosed on VRBO. Second, there is a bit of noise from 9 pm until midnight from scooters on the street & people at the nearby pizzaria/bar/restaurant that's open late. It wasn't too bad, and you'll probably have a certain amount of noise at most rental properties. I'm a light sleeper, so it was a little inconvenient at times, but it won't bother you if you go to sleep late or if you're a heavy sleeper. (And if you're concerned about noise, don't worry about the bell tower across the street; it stops chiming at 9 pm.)
Again, the house was lovely and is close to numerous wonderful sites. We visited 6 countries on this trip & the time we spent at Casa Bardila / Sardinia was our favorite.
