Perfect getaway spot!
This villa is a little gem. Facilities were brilliant and the location is good. Would recommend hiring a car thought not completely necessary.
Location, location, location
Lovely villa with all amenities you could need for a relaxing stay in San Pedro. Close to beaches, shops and restaurants. Car useful for visiting other nearby towns, but not essential as 10 minute walk gets you to village and beach.
The only reason for knocking one star off was the water situation. Showering under what I would generally call a drizzly day in Ireland, wasn't a pleasant experience. However this was clearly not Gemma's fault as she explained to me by email that the water in the area is generally very bad pressure. Though I would wonder if a pump fitted to their system would give a better experience to the shower, as we use one at home to great effect.
Gemmas response to any queries was top notch and in a timely manner. Thanks for all your help Gemma.
Lovely villa . Very clean and modern in a quiet location.
The villa was lovely. It was modern and had all the amenities needed for my partner and my daughter. The pool looked very inviting however unfortunately it was too cold to swim in as had been raining a lot. We visited Puerto Banús and Marbella and would have travelled further but did not have a car and taxis are quite expensive . We didn’t research buses. The beach is about 10 minutes walk away and if you turn left at beach after a short walk the promenade is lovely with restaurants scatted along it. The town of st Pedro is about 10 mins walk in the other direction. Thank you Gemma for your hospitality. We had a lovely time .
Lovely villa in a quiet location
This is a charming villa in a lovely quiet location but still within walking distance of all amenities.
The photos on the website are accurate although the pool was bigger than expected along with the mature garden with several different types of fruit trees (sadly not ripe whilst we were there). There is plenty of shade if required and the terrace is south facing and gets the sun pretty much all day. The pool is not overlooked and is very secluded, and we rarely heard any noise from the nearby properties.
Inside, the villa was spotlessly clean and the air conditioning worked well.
The bed in the main bedroom was very comfortable and plenty of storage space available. Alarm system easy to use and gave peace of mind although the area feels very safe. The TV was a bit flakey in that it seemed to freeze quite a bit but Gemma is aware and is working on a solution. Loads of English channels though, more than you could wish for.
The beach is an 8 minute stroll (walk straight down the road and it takes you too the pricey Maccao beach bar). The beach is a bit shingly and it wasn’t easy to get into the sea but is pretty nonetheless and plenty of room to put your towel down if you don’t fancy paying for a sunbed (20 euros for frontline at the Maccao but you can get them further along for 5 euros). Turn left at the Maccao and there are more Chiringuitos, all with sunbeds at varying prices. Eventually this brings you to the promenade which has more bars and restaurants - note that some of these are quite pricey and better value can be found in the town itself. Walking in the other direction from the villa (about 10 minutes) brings you to the charming town of San Pedro itself. Loads of bars, restaurants and very Spanish feel. I got a round of drinks for 4 euros for 3 of us in one of the traditional bars. Tapas is also inexpensive.
There is a Spar about 3 mins walk from the villa but for a better supermarket, carry on straight up to the Colonia Commercial Centre (there is a McDonalds here if that floats your boat), to the Dia supermarket. This place was extremely cheap (500 ml can of San Miguel for 37 cents for example) and you could also buy freshly squeezed orange juice here along with any other items you could need.
Gemma was a lovely host and I always felt I could contact her if any issues had arisen.
I would definitely return to this property and highly recommend it to anyone considering booking it.
Thank you kindly for the wonderful review. Very informative for future guests.
Hope to see you again in the future.
Excellent location, plenty of room, good sized pool, clean and welcoming
This villa is about ten minutes from the beach and fifteen minutes walk in the other direction to San Pedro town. The villa offers everything you need - plus welcome pack on arrival which is great (eg milk, water, dishwasher tabs, detergent so you don't have to faff with buying that stuff). Beach towels provided so that's a real bonus too. The location is very quiet and private, with pretty lime trees and flowering bushes in the garden. Also good that the outside dining area and BBQ are under cover so offer shade for eating. A/C inside is most welcome. We holidayed mid August so used the beach in the morning (sand, sea, walking, coffees, playing on the gym equipment), pool in the afternoon and old town in the evening. There are plenty of good restaurants and bars within the easy distance in either direction. We would come again for longer and hire a car for further exploring. Gemma will help with anything you need and is prompt and efficient with customer service.
Great place for a relaxing holiday
Very enjoyable place, well located (walking distance to the beach, restaurants and grocery shopping), with a nice garden and pleasant swimming pool in a quiet neighborhood. The grapefruit tree provided us with more fresh grapefruit juice than we could drink, that was really great!
We would definitely recommend this place!
And wouldn't mind visiting again sometime next summer...
