The villa is lovely, lots of space and ideally situated. 10 minute walk to Lighthouse Beach and Sandy Beach. Lovely location and Angie and Den are the perfect hosts, there if you need them and really helpful.. They go out of their way to ensure you have a great holiday. Perfect, can't wait to go back.

“Lovely time at Alarek Villa”

people found this review helpful

We have just had a wonderful two weeks staying at Alarek Villa. The resident owners, Angie and Den, were really friendly and helpful - both before we arrived and when we were there. They helped us to choose and book various trips whilst we were there and having the services of Kuinny, their driver, was great. It is only a short 5-10 minute walk to the lovely beaches - down a pretty sandy track through a coconut grove, past the banyan tree, and there you are on the most beautiful beach with the wonderful warm surf of the Arabian Sea! There are plenty of shops, restaurants etc more or less on the doorstep. The villa is spacious and very clean - thanks to the superb services of their ladies who come in every other day to clean, change sheets, do laundry etc. Highly recommend for a memorable holiday.

I have just returned from a relaxing holiday staying @ Alarek Villa, the villa is very spacious with a bathroom in both rooms. the villa is in a ideal position close to the beach which is in walking distance. Angie and Den are very helpful and cannot do enough for you. I would recommend this to all my friends.

people found this review helpful

We stayed at Alarek Villa for 3 weeks from December through to January 2014, both the villa and colttage have had a refurb, bathrooms and kitches all re-tiled, sofa's recovered etc, Angie has done a fabulous job with both properties.
Kuinny met us a the airport, it is great to see a friendly face when you arrive there, less than half an hour later we were settled in the villa having a cup of tea.
Angie & Den are great hosts, always available and willing to help if you need anything, nothing is too much trouble for them.
Angie & Den have great staff working for them, Vasenda does a fantastic job keeping the properties spotless and if you leave your laundry outside, it miraculously disappears and comes back 2 days later washed and Ironed by Shagondola, it is a real treat to have your washing done and not expensive either.
This was my 4th time staying with Angie & Den, I will be back in March for another 2 weeks holiday, can't think of a better place to stay.

My husband and I stayed at Alarek Villa for the second time in November 2013. If possible, it was better than in 2012. Angie has redecorated and refurbished both the villa and cottage, making both seem really fresh and clean. The villa is within walking distance of two great beaches, although a rickshaw ride will cost all of £1! Angie and Den are both excellent hosts and always willing to give you the benefit of their years' of experience. Their staff also deserve a mention - particularly Kuinny - who is a great manager and very knowledgeable and very capable driver (don't know how he does it!) All in all a fabulous place to stay.
