Karen was a great host - she told us in advance she would pop and see us the morning after we arrived which she duly did and was happy to answer any questions and provide any help we needed. She also came to say goodbye the evening before our departure. Other than that, we never say each other and you had very little idea that she lives close by - Karen respected our wish for privacy but was there if needed - brilliant!
The property is a in a great location - close to a good supermarket and around 10 mins drive from coastal resorts and 15 mins from the airport. It also has lovely views of the sea - it's a lovely place to chill and relax.
We found the property to be more spacious than expected and it was also very clean and nicely presented. UK TV is available as is the internet if you're interested.
Karen's horses are nearby, but in the week we were there we never came within 100 feet of them and we could not hear them or notice any side effect from their presence (smell, flies etc) whatsoever.....
They were not there when we arrived and we didnt see then the whole time 2 weeks - when we left we still hadnt seen them they acused us of damging the apartment -we had asked to go back why would we do that if we had ??? the door was hanging off all the time we had been there and the kettle must have been leaking for months as water had made the chipwood expand (have a look at the END of the worktop its the same as the water runs that way also (try it) they tried to say it cost £500 ALL THAT WAS NEEDED was to fit a new hinge on the door - guess what - I WONT BE GOING BACK - creaking bed so bad we could not sleep FLIES FLIES FLIES because its RIGHT next to a smelly horse stable, hot water dribble in rear bathroom and wont turn on properly, torn setees , mice , etc etc etc NEVER AGAIN.
Perfect central location for exploring the Island. The villa was spottlessly clean and well equipped. Lots of room around the private pool offering both sunny and shaded areas. The owner, Karen was available if required. Would highly recommend this villa, well worth booking.
My family and I are Sat at the airport, sad at leaving this beautiful place. It has been a real home from home, for the past week. Everything was perfect, from Karen's warm welcome to the private pool and spacious accommodation . It's only a 5 minute drive from the busy town of Puerto del Carmen but once back at the villa its so tranquil. I'd recommend hiring a car, as it gives you a lot more freedom. We can't wait to come back.
