    What a beautifully presented, spacious villa. This sleeps 12 plus 1 baby with ease. Great outside kitchen & games area. A lot of fun was had by all playing pool, not to mention the giant connect 4 game. Could not of wished for any place better to spend my birthday. Moraira is also a lovely place. I thoroughly recommend this for a great vacation.

  2. Suzie DuttonStayed June 2023

    Wonderful villa, even better than the photos. The outside space is amazing, with lots of sun till 6pm (June). The location is very good, only 15 mins walk to town or beach. Loads of great restaurants in the busy town to choose from. I don’t think you need a car here - we got a big Mercadona delivery at the start of the week which was a great idea.

    We had a great and relaxing week in a beautiful villa. Pool size is perfect for the amount of people it sleeps. Another review mentioned the smaller bedroom only being suitable for one person - we disagree, yes it’s a bit smaller but still fine (perfect for two kids) and you have the extra space in the apartment anyway. Make sure you look at the PC for photos of the villa before the refurb - what a difference!

    • Adele Dudley, villa owner
      Host’s response:

      Thanks for the fab review Suzie! We're so pleased you had such a great holiday and enjoyed the villa. Your idea to have a Mercadona delivery was perfect for you, and no, you really don't need to have a car here as everything is so close. We hope to see you again in the future :)

  5. Dawn WStayed December 2022

    Christmas family break
    We spent 2 1/2 weeks at the villa with family and friends , ages ranging from 1 year old - 75 years old ! Fantastic villa , loved the pool , games room and summer kitchen, literally had everything we needed . A short flat walk into town where there is an abundance of cafes / bars / restaurants alongside the beach and the harbour.
    Excellent communication throughout , easy check in / check out and always very responsive if we had a query.
    I would highly recommend and would definitely stay here again if holidaying in a group.

    • Adele Dudley, villa owner
      Host’s response:

      Hi Dawn and family. Thank you for your nice review. Its good to see that all your generations had a great time and that made good use of all the facilities. You did well to have fab weather as well! It was a pleasure looking after you all, and I hope you return in the future.
      regards Adele

  6. Phil KStayed September 2022

    A fabulous holiday in a beautiful villa. It had everything to cater for your needs. The owners were lovely and the villa was spotless and decorated with a modern touch. Location of the villa was good, about a 10 minute walk away from the town and beach. Thank you for a great holiday!

    • Adele Dudley, villa owner
      Host’s response:

      Hi Phil, thanks for your good review. We are glad that you had a good time. Sorry for the long delay in responding to you. Thanks for looking after the villa well. Hope to see you again in future.

  7. Sharon HStayed August 2022

    Just wonderful
    This beautiful villa did not disappoint, everything is exactly as described. Communication is excellent, location is good and the standard of facilities is excellent. We enjoyed evenings sat outside watching the tiny lizards and just taking in the beautiful surroundings. We would definitely recommend paying the extra to have the garden sprayed though, we did this and during our 1st week there were just one or two mosquito bites amongst us but during the 2nd week a few of us suffered quite a bit with one of our party being particularly tasty and acquiring 18 angry bites in total. We did however have 2 storms where it rained so this probably made it worse. My only suggestion for improvement would be a cover for the soft seating area as we had the threat of bad weather 3 times during our stay and each time had to remove the cushions and then put them back the next day, even though we weren’t using them, as they take up quite a bit of space. (This is by no means a criticism, just a suggestion)
    I would definitely recommend this villa and guarantee you will not be disappointed!

    • Adele Dudley, villa owner
      Host’s response:

      Hi Sharon - Thank you for your very nice review, appreciation of all the facilities and surroundings, and for being such good guests. Yes the mosquito spraying is definitely worth it for a small extra cost. That is good feedback on the cushions, we just need to find covers that would fit the outdoor sofas neatly. Hope you can come back in future
      regards, Adele

    Fantastic Villa
    Brilliant to deal with, awesome villa stunning location. Well laid out, superb fridge by the pool, comfy beds, hot showers, what more do you need? Will happily stay again, if you will have us!

    Great stay, lovely villa and ideal location
    The villa is perfect for a large group and has all the amenities you need whilst on holiday, the local town is also great with lots of nice restaurants and bars. The hosts are also really friendly and happy to help with queries.

    • Adele Dudley, villa owner
      Host’s response:

      Hi Sophie, thanks very much for your nice review (apologies for the delay in getting back to you).
      Thanks for looking after the villa well, I hope you can come back sometime in future; it is already fully booked for April to October 2023 but it would be good to have you back in 2024 onwards or in the off-peak seasons
      regards, Adele

  10. Mark AStayed June 2022

    Moraira family holiday
    The property can take 12 guests and there is plenty of outdoor space for everyone. The weather was excellent so outside all the time, seating in the lounge would be tight if 12 people wanted to sit down together. Hosts were excellent and we felt we could have contacted them at anytime. The en-suite could do with a deep clean around the tiles and football, darts and pool table could do with an upgrade. Great villa and great location.

    • Adele Dudley, villa owner
      Host’s response:

      Hi Mark, thanks for your feedback, and glad to hear that you had a good time. Good observations on the games room, we replaced the pool table just after your stay with a much newer, high quality slate table which is designed for outdoor use, and we have tidied up the football table and the surrounds of the dart board (the board was new actually, but we are going to try to get guests to refrain from having children use it who have been making a mess of the surrounds). We have also addressed the en suite. The outside covered naya seats 12 people and has outdoor heaters, the lounge can seat 7 on the sofas, 6 on the breakfast table and a few around the kitchen island.
      Hope to see you again in future
      Regards Adele

  11. Alice MStayed May 2022

    The property was ideal for our family gathering. The games area was a real bonus.
    This property gave us the opportunity to gather as a family. It was a personal and expensive choice to have the pool heated as we had a couple of 2 yr. old grandchildren with us. My only suggestion would be having to pay each day for an extra cot when renting a villa that sleeps 12 people.

    • Adele Dudley, villa owner
      Host’s response:

      Hi Alice, thank you for your 5 star review. It’s good that the pool was warm enough for your 2 year old grandchildren. Electricity prices are even more expensive in Spain than England so we do have to cover our costs to heat the pool unfortunately, although unlike many other villas we don’t charge extra for normal electricity usage. We provide and assemble a cot and high chair for free, for any additional ones we charge the rental cost for the number of days that guests want them for. Thanks for looking after the villa, hope you can come again.
      Regards Adele

  12. Colin MStayed May 2022

    Lovely spacious holiday villa
    We had delayed our family holiday twice due to covid, however it was worth the wait to spend a week together in this fantastic, well-equipped home! Both outside and inside spaces are generous and allowed us all to gather together and equally enjoy a bit of space on our own if needed. The pool area is fantastic with comfy loungers, shades and an outside kitchen..we spent most of our holiday there!
    The town is an easy 15/20 minute stroll with a huge choice of bars and restaurants to choose from and the supermarket is just a few minutes walk away..so no need to for a hire car.
    Our family had an amazing week, thanks so much for renting us your lovely home and also thanks to Helen and Rick for key handover and lots of helpful information during our stay - would thoroughly recommend to anyone and hope we can return sometime soon!

    • Adele Dudley, villa owner
      Host’s response:

      Hi Colin, Thank you for your nice review and feedback. It’s good that this made up for your previously cancelled holidays from COVID . I’m glad you all had a great time and liked the communications and check - in process from Rick and Helen. You are welcome to come back in future, thanks for looking after it well.

      Hi Chris . That’s great that you had a good time and liked the communication etc. Thanks for being patient with the cut off of water in the local area for a few hours, and for looking after the villa well . Hope you come back some time in the future.

  14. Gemma F.Stayed June 2021

    We had a lovely stay in this villa and perfect place to stay with kids of varying ages.
    The villa is well equipped and has a stunning garden and outdoor space which was great for our party of 12 people of varying ages. Location is very close to all amenities and Moraira centre (walking distance to everywhere).Communication with owners and property managers was great from beginning to end and the few very minor issues we had were very quickly resolved within a few hours and communication with the property managers was easy too.
    Overall a great villa for a large group and it had everything we needed. The main kitchen is a little small for a big group (only two small fridges and no freezer inside.) However it did have an outdoor kitchen (with a large fridge) which we really needed to use during our stay. The villa did have a slightly musty smell but this was probably due to it being closed for a while before our stay. Overall a highly enjoyable stay and would recommend it!

    • Adele Dudley, villa owner
      Host’s response:

      Thank you for your review. Glad you had an amazing time! You are right about the villa having been closed prior to your stay, obviously during the pandemic we have not had the usual level of visitors…
      We do try to think of everything and glad you made good use of the summer kitchen! Hope you had a chance to use the pizza oven
