Villa Sofia is in a great location, there's small shop within 5 mins walk, supermarket & San Antonio 15 mins. Cala Gracia beach is a lovely little cove just a few minutes away, with a beach cafe serving decent food (including surprisingly good fresh fish!). A little bit further on is the smaller Cala Gracioneta which is home to a fantastic restaurant, El Chiringuto - recommend the paella.
The villa itself is clean and tidy with all the necessary amenities, kept in good condition. The pool area is a decent size and there's a nice BBQ area. The people at Ibiza Hire (who own/run the villa) are prompt with their communications and very helpful. Alan, the villa manager, has some good local tips.
We all had a great time in Ibiza & at Villa Sofia. The villa was spacious, has a good size pool & outside entertaining area. All bedrooms are a good size & the air con works great, which in Ibiza July/Aug is essential. Also, it is in walking distance to a little local shop & a short stroll to the local beaches or San Antonio's bars.
I would definitely recommend booking through IbizaHire, they are quick to reply to any queries & efficient in what they do.

We stayed at Villa Sofia for 4 nights at the beginning of September 2014. This was all arranged through Ibizahire.com. It all went very smoothly from the private transfer through to the personal cook we had to cook us breakfast every morning.
The villa was spacious, although I a bit on the small side. There were 9 adult guys and some had to share beds. The pool is also very small. They say it is walkable to San Antonio but please don't book it for this reason (as we did). Simply because it isn't. It is probably a 20 min walk but a lot of uphill and downhill in the sweltering summer heat. We only did it once and then used taxis everyday.
Ibizahire were great and everything we arranged went smoothly. The only thing I could complain about would be the breakfast. We paid 15 euros per person per day for someone to come and cook this but all the ingredients were very cheap and nasty. The beans and sausages were certainly not brand names and it was possibly the worst scrambled egg I have had. They should perhaps spend a bit more as people who can afford these villas are used to good food! The girl who came to cook it was very nice though and the service fantastic.
Overall, I would use ibizahire again but I would stay in a better value for money villa on the Den Bossa side of the island.
My damages deposit was also repaid promptly so no quarks with that.
