Four of us, all 50-something adults, stayed in Bay View during March 2015. The villa is located on the edge of Playa Blanca, with an extinct volcano a nice stroll away. There is a smallish pool and sun deck, which is not overlooked and is very private. The villa is comfortable and well equipped, a home from home. Only minor quibbles would be that only one bin bag was supplied, the kitchen knives were a bit blunt and the complimentary wine wasn't great. Small issues.
It would be possible to stay at Bay View without a car, but I would not recommend it. The town is a 25 minute walk away and the best restaurants are much further away. The marina restaurants are generally good, with a very good Spanish Restaurant the star of the show.
Booking the Villa was easy, accomplished by a couple of emails to the owners. A £200 deposit was required. This was returned within 24 hours of our leaving the villa.
Overall, I'd strongly recommend Bay View. The villa is great, location fine and booking easy.
Great place to stay. beautifully appointed villa with delightful views. Warm swimming pool, great sun loungers and a real feel of quality space and homeliness. Highly recommend this villa and I would gladly stay again! Great communication from Alison during the booking process. Found the guest book with other people's recommendations of day trips and places to eat very informative.
Our family stayed in Bay View Villa at the beginning of February. From the moment we booked the Villa we knew that it would be wonderful.
When we arrived we were not disappointed everything was just as described. The beds were so comfy and the villa spacious. We had a great time and that's because it felt more like staying in someone's home rather than a rented villa, so relaxing! The pool was lovely and warm. In fact everything was just perfect. Highly recommended. Thank you.
Lovely villa, well furnished, beautiful views, as described in write up, would happily go back again.
The only cautionary point is settee in lounge seats four comfortably, more than that would be a struggle.
Bay View is the sort of place that you just want to keep going back to time and again. The standard of the furnishings and facilities makes it feel as though you're staying in a really top quality venue, and the views are to die for. Sitting by the pool just looking out across the town and bay is pure relaxation, and firing up the traditional local barbeque in the evening gives this lovely villa a real home-from-home feel.
Playa Blanca town is just a short, very reasonable (6-7 euros) taxi ride or a nice downhill walk away (taxi back is recommended as the villa is on the side of an (extinct) volcano!), and is full of great bars and restaurants to cater for all tastes, most of them with lovely waterside views.
When you get back to Bay View you have a choice of three really beautifully-furnished bedrooms, with a stunning master bedroom. There's a large lounge and well kitted-out kitchen (all the equipment you need for cocktails and sangria!), but with the weather as lovely as it was we didn't sit inside much!
We can't recommend BayView villa highly enough, and will definitely be re-booking for next year.

Absolutley amazing villa! The rooms are very spacious. It is well equipped and felt like a second home right away. The villa has sky and wifi which was great cause we didn't feel as if we were cut off from the world. The outside terrace gets sun all day and was very private. Being able to have lunch and dinner outside whilst taking in the fantastic views was great, you can see the mountains all the way round down to the sea and the town. The pool was fabulous and was great to swim around and cool off. I will definately be going back there again. The Best holiday we've had!
By far the best villa we have ever stayed in, luxurious and very well equipped you could easily stay on site for the whole holiday and still love it. Bedrooms all have en suite and the kitchen is superbly equipped. The barbecue is brilliantly positioned for cooking those Mediterranean meals and serving up poolside. I cannot honestly find fault with anything regarding this villa so a big thumbs up from us and cannot wait to get back to bay view. Many thanks to owners Paul and Allie who are an absolute joy to deal with. Excellent.
