  • Villa Alanca for 5 adults in mid-July - beautiful views, great accommodations, nice breeze and sunny

    "Wow, what a great place! Villa Alanca met all our expectations. We were 5 adults (my son and my daughter and their spouses and me) and had our own private bedrooms and baths. The kitchen and the living areas of villa were well equipped and furnished. WiFi a big plus and also that the villa had 220V and 110V electricity, easy for us to charge our phones and iPads. Safes in two of the bedrooms. We felt very secure: coded gate into the villa and shutters on all windows (including sliding doors of which there were many) which we could close and make even more secure. However, we felt very safe as the villa is located in a nice area with nice homes and 24 hour security/patrol. The views from the villa are fantastic, the outside pool very welcoming and well used by us, nice patio areas with lounge chairs, and so easy to walk to the beach and enjoy the ocean and the many bars and restaurants. Although we rented a car and ventured to other parts of the island, it was nice to know we were within walking of many places to eat. Cafe Calmos in Grand Case was fun (live music on Thursday nights). The best restaurant (and we could walk to it) in my opinion was the Astrolabe, excellently prepared food, at least 4-star. There is no shortage of wine and beer on the island, but food and liquor are expensive. We went to some grocery stores and everything is imported so, again, fairly expensive. We ate our breakfasts in and ate all our lunches out, one dinner we did at the villa but all other dinners we ate at various restaurants, most of which we could walk to easily. Oh, and besides the great villa itself and all its accommodations, and of course the view , there was a nice breeze, very important to us since we were there in mid-July. We definitely picked the right location and the right villa. I highly recommend it and can assure you that the listing description and photos are accurate. Philippe was great and very helpful. ( I have stayed on the island two previous times, both on the Dutch side, and if I go back to this island I definitely want it to be on the French side and stay at Villa Alanca.)"

  • Smiles from all three couples as we entered the property and saw the colorful patio and pool.

    "What a charming villa! The property manager greeted us upon arrival. The pool was sparkling, the sun deck large and all plants well manicured. We entered the villa and all bedrooms were excellent. Everyone commented on the comfort of the beds. The kitchen was well equipped and we had a washer and dryer. Although the villa had a nice dining room and living room; we found ourselves each evening sitting on the large terrace enjoying the view and having refreshments before going to dinner. The terrace had a grille and cooking area for the outdoor chef in the family on one end and a dining table on the other, but we enjoyed the couches with center table the most, as we sat and chatted about our day. As a home owner with a pool, I appreciated the sparkling pool water and the perfect upkeep. With just a few minutes walk to the village restaurants and beach; this villa was perfect! We enjoyed going for a short walk each morning for coffee and pastries at the nearby French restaurant. Vincent, the property owner, was quick getting back to us regarding any questions. Once the contract was submitted to us, it was very informative to protect the owner and the renter. We visited several VRBO villas before deciding on this one and are so happy with our decision. On our last day, everyone said "I am not ready to go back. I so enjoyed this villa. It was so close to everything." We will be back! Thanks to the owner and property manager for making our "vacay" a perfect trip!!!!"

  • Fabulous Villa and Location

    "I can't say enough great things about our family's stay at Rick's villa. The property was exactly as the pictures depicted. The views are incredible both day and night. Since this was our first stay, I was a bit concerned about potential noise from the airport, but it was not a problem at all. There were six of us, and we all had plenty of privacy when we wanted it, thanks to the generous size of the suites. Jenny, our housekeeper was a real sweetheart and was very helpful. Thank you, Rick for sharing your home and for being so easy to work with."
