We are a party of eight people, and stayed at Villa Stellar for a week during Easter, for a family birthday celebration.
The villa really is even better than in the pictures. It has been furnished with a nice style. Quality of furniture, amenities and pretty much everything are top notch. There are Molton Brown toiletries in all bathrooms. The villa and even the garden are kept very clean and tidy.
There are four bedrooms total: three upstairs (two with a shared balcony and views towards the sea, of which other has an en-suite bathroom, the other two upstairs bedrooms share a bathroom) and one downstairs with an en-suite bathroom featuring double sinks and a laundry machine. Additionally there is a separate toilet downstairs and one in the garden. All the bathrooms are equipped with hairdryers, and all guests were provided with two sets of towels, and a beach towel, as well as slippers.
Kitchen and generally cooking facilities are excellent. The grill can handle even a bit larger set at a time. There is a water osmosis equipment in the kitchen tap (and ice machine) so there's no need for bottled water.
Entertainment-wise, there is a selection of movies, books and magazines available, and the television has hundreds of channels. The stereo system was excellent, and there are Bose loudspeakers both inside and outside at the terrace. There is a WiFi connection available, but the connection is not fast enough for streaming movies or tv series.
We chose to have the pool heated, and the water stayed around 26 degrees the whole week. The pool is large enough to swim comfortably.
Location is perfect for restaurants with excellent food. We tried Japanese (AIO Teppanaki) and couple seafood restaurants (El Chamizo and Les Bretonnes) and they were all very good. The center of Moraira is just a short walk away, and you will be able to get fresh bread each morning.
We had rented two cars, and relied on those when it comes to transportation, so we wouldn't know about any else transportation options. As for nearby cities, we would recommend visiting at least Altea and Denia.
We would definitely stay again if we have a chance.
This place is incredible, it really has it all. You've got privacy, security, luxury, views, a gorgeous pool, a chef's kitchen, and above all ...it's comfortable!
They send you easy-to-follow directions, if you've got a car, and excellent information if you're coming from the airport. They also provide a lot of useful/helpful information about the area. The property manager, Shane, meets you at the gate (there are 2). He was friendly and super helpful even when we had silly questions. We were greeted with a lovely welcome package, including a wonderful bottle of sparkling wine, which was very helpful as we arrived after a long day in the car, and certainly didn't feel like finding a supermarket or a restaurant.
The villa takes your breath away from the minute you enter. The living area is beautifully decorated, and impressive with it's high ceilings and huge windows, and plenty of comfortable sofas and seating. We loved the combination of luxury and comfort.
2 of the 4 bedrooms have ensuites, and 2 share a very nice bathroom. All of the bedrooms are beautifully done and very comfortable.The bathtub and shower in the master ensuite are amazing. There is a really nice terrace off of the master and one other bedroom ...this is a nice spot for your morning coffee, with beautiful views of the sea. Beds are super comfortable, windows have bug screens, good water pressure, and no problem with any of the services. WiFi was also available throughout the property.
There are several restaurants right around the villa. We tried the Chinese place, the Japanese place, and the Italian (sorry, I don't recall the names). You can also walk to the main part of Moraira in about 15 minutes, where you'll find lots of restaurants. The supermarket, Mas y Mas, is about a 5-10 min walk in the other direction. We loved this place so much that we chose to self-cater a few nights instead of going out. The kitchen has everything you need and more. You've also got a large dining table inside.
The outdoor space is awesome. You are quite close to the sea and can see it even from the main level. Beautifully done gardens, and a gorgeous pool. Everything is completely fenced off, so perfect for us as we had a small dog with us. It's so private and beautiful that we spent most of our time out there. There's a huge dining table, a couple of smaller tables, and then there's a comfy sofa where we enjoyed hanging out. They've got pool toys and air mattresses, and other toys for kids. They also got a small building with an outdoor kitchen/BBQ.
Oh yes, and in the indoor living area, they've got a cozy TV area with books, DVDs, and I mustn't forget to mention the huge fireplace (we didn't use it because it was still hot)! And there was a music system (Bose, I believe) with speakers outside but we didn't use it.
This place is the perfect getaway for larger families for a few couples ...or a romantic hideout for 2. And you can enjoy it anytime of the year. As I said, this place has it all and we really didn't want to leave. Kudos to the owners and the property managers. 5* all the way.
My husband and I booked Villa Stellar, as it looked perfect from the pictures, and when we arrived there we were speechless!! The villa was spotlessly clean, thanks to the housekeepers, Shane and Angela. The whole booking process was easy, and all my questions were answered by the owner, Lynn.
The location of the villa was superb, very near to our favourite Bar Cascada, which was about 2 minutes walk away. We were opposite Algas, where there are a few bars and restaurants. Also there was a great Chinese Restaurant next door, The Happy Garden.
Also, there were no hills to climb when walking into town, which took about 15 minutes. You would not necessarily need a hire car if you didn't want one.
The balcony from the master bedroom had glorious views, and we spent many a happy hour sitting there.
The villa was set in lovely gardens around the pool area, and the villa was very secure, having its own electrically operated gates, and also gates which served the four villas in the private road leading to it.
I would definitely return to this villa, it was one of the best we have ever stayed in.
Three couples in my party were looking to book somewhere special to celebrate our ‘milestone’ birthdays and chose Villa Stellar after trawling the internet. What a fantastic choice we made! On arrival we were greeted by Shane who gave us a brief tour of the property and then left us to explore. The villa is absolutely stunning and scrupulously clean. The interior is well decorated, spacious and air conditioned. Every appliance is high end and no attention to detail or possible needs has been overlooked. The welcome pack provided by our hosts was superb. There is ample glassware, crockery, cutlery, utensils etc. The bedrooms are air conditioned and the en-suite bathrooms are well appointed and again, spotlessly clean. The exterior pool area with shaded terrace and dining table was a joy. There is an outside loo and shower that is as good as any I have ever seen in a fisrt class hotel. The grounds are well tended and nothing is out of place. A huge bonus for our party was the barbecue cabana (bigger than many garages!) with very high quality gas grill, extractor hood and sun shade that allowed us to further enjoy the outdoor experience. Villa Stellar is located a short walk from the beach and a few bars and restaurants and the Masymas supermaket. Moraira is located about an easy twenty minute stroll away and there are bars and restaurants along the way. This is somewhere that I will definitely return.
We absolutely loved this amazing villa.Incredibly clean ,from the inside to the outside grounds,nothing is left to chance.Well appointed kitchen,(built in coffee machine is an a great addition) this place cater to the most discerning tastes.The beautiful decor, and all the amenities will make this place a great getaway for everyone.Prompt response from the owner and courteous staff will make it easy to enjoy your stay .
Booked this lovely villa to celebrate joint 50th Birthdays. The villa is beautiful with the outside entertaining space as well thought out and impressive as the inside. Bedrooms are large and beds extremely comfortable with high quality bedding. The only negative is that we have to leave - would love to stay but will be booking again. Thoughtful welcome pack also provided and very much appreciated.
