Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
Exceeded out expectations
We had concerns about booking privately, but these were satisfied following phone conversations with the very helpful owner (recommend it). We arrived very late at night due to a delayed flight, however the local English agent for the property was on hand, and very helpful and accommodating throughout the stay.
The villa felt very secure and safe to leave, being gated and alarmed. That being linked to a security post for the whole estate, manned throughout the night.
The villa was in excellent condition, and unlike other rented villas we have experienced that are only for that purpose, was obviously also a second home for the owner. Consequently all the furnishings etc were in excellent and very comfortable condition.
We didn't much like the main drag in Manilva area as it was a bit like Margate, maybe that's just us, but found a lot of on-the-beach tavernas away from the main drag that were fun, relaxing, rustic, and offered varying menus, including bbq on what was fresh on the day.
Excellent value for money, highly recommend it.
Wonderful Vacation Home
We had a great vacation at this Villa. Spectacular views, short drive to beaches and markets. Clean, pretty, summery home. We had our two year old with us and appreciated the (optional) child-proofing around the pool and the fun toys we found at the house. Owner was very helpful with information about the area etc...I highly recommend!
