“Wouldn't visit again”
Reviewed April 23, 2017 for a stay in December 2016

person found this review helpful

I agree with a previous review. While the villa is beautiful and Juan is very welcoming, there are too many things that need improving.
No hot water, had to boil the kettle to do dishes. The villa really needs cleaning. It smells musty and I have dust allergies so I was a mess. The pool wasn't cleaned even though Juan said he'd do it and to top it off, we had no privacy as Juan was pottering around the property for all 3 days we were there. Even though he is friendly, we felt uncomfortable and one morning couldn't even shower as he was working near the window. He was there from 8am to 8pm on and off and it was too much and ruined our stay. Thankfully we were only there a few nights. If we'd booked a week, we honestly would have had to find somewhere else as all the downfalls together were too much. Very expensive for the experience we had.
To end on a positive, the artwork is fantastic, so well made and displayed. So the star is for that!

“enchanting and peaceful hideaway”
Reviewed April 10, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

It's rare to find a property that you can feel at home in straight away, this villa did not feel like a rental, but a home away from home. From the beautiful artwork on the walls (created by the owner), rustic kitchen - it may lack some of the usual appliances that you might have in your own home but for me that added to the charm of accepting that you are in a different country with different challenges. The outdoor space is exceptional, a sheltered wall surrounds the swimming pool area giving it a hidden feel and many clever outdoor shaded areas that created secret little living spaces in their own right. There has been a lot of thought put into this building and having stayed in many places around the world, this is one of my favourites. Juan Ma discretely made himself available for anything we needed from advice on non touristy beaches to opening a broken tin of canned food. The location is perfect, we visited all four corners of the island within 1 and a half hours each. Superb (and get in quick before he puts the price up as we also think it was very cheap for what you got)...

“Excellent country retreat”
Reviewed December 7, 2016 for a stay in November 2016

Four of us visited the villa as two couples during November this year. It is in the village of Juan Gopar, which in itself is quite spread out. Arriving in the dark was entertaining, even though we had good instructions but everything was ready for us when we got there. Juan, the owner, popped in at the first opportunity that he had later in the evening. He is very attentive to the needs of his guests, but does only speak Spanish. Google translate is a wonderful thing! The villa is extremely spacious and generally very well equipped. A huge kitchen diner, a massive lounge area and three large bedrooms, all with TVs. One of these is en suite and also has a walk-in storage room. Two indoor bathrooms, both equipped with with showers. The accommodation is effectively three quarters of a square arranged around a small central courtyard.

The appliances such as the hob, oven and showers all work from bottled gas. Because of its rural location and as it has been set up as an eco-friendly house there are no appliances which would have a heavy power demand. We boiled water on the hob and suggested a hob kettle would be useful which I believe will be added to the inventory.

Outside is a lovely shaded patio area with steps down to a swimming pool, barbecue stand and roofed games area, including a pool table.

It was an absolute treat to return to this villa each day after exploring the South of the island. I noticed the comment in another review about the door security. I would suggest that this must have been rectified and this posed no problem to us at all. Juan is currently spending a fair amount of time working on the adjacent property but is very inobtrusive.

I would thoroughly recommend this villa. There are limitations, but take these on board and accept it for what it is and enjoy yourselves there. I would happily live in it.

Thanks very much Juan.

Cuando negociamos la reserva para una celebración para darle precio primero me dio un número de personas que iban a venir resultando después que eran muchos más a lo que me negué habiendo incumplido lo pactado ;ante la discrepancia existente por su engaño le propuse que utlizara en días y personas la cantidad que había entregado como reserva a lo que accedió.A las dos semanas me vuelve a decir que quería anular la reserva y que le devolviera la reserva a lo que yo me negué en rotundo por su intento de engaño y a la negación posterior de cogerse los dias que acordamos .En el trascurso de tiempo que paso desde que reservo y el que quiso anular ( por su acto de mala fe y unilateralmente )he recibido propuestas de reservar esas mismas fechas por otros clientes a los que he perdido de alquilar porque estaban a su nombre .Como la reserva es justamente para esto( cuidarme de posibles clientes con mala fe y honra ) no le devuelvo su reserva aún habiéndole dado la opción de cogerse los días por cuenta de la reserva efectuada .
