just beautiful ! The cleaner, pool guy and gardeners were regular visitors (along with a visiting duck in the pool!!) But seriously, this is the second time we've come to this villa and plan on saving up to do it again next year - an amazing villa in a great location.

As this holiday was a special birthday occasion for my wife I must say it was one of the best holidays we have taken. Everything was just brilliant, the villa was great and we felt like millionaires for the week. A big thanks to James Villas for a great holiday.

We stayed in this villa in 2016 and found our whole holiday experience to be wonderfull, this year, the villa was not so clean and the pool was dirty for the 1st week and more water had to be added, there was no pool lighting for the evening, which detered me from using the pool in the evenings. Villa is in a great location to all local amenities.

The Positive Side: The Villa is well positioned for services and amenities, you don't really need a car. Despite effectively being on a roundabout and overlooked, it was quiet and pretty private, especially when in the pool. The outside area and pool is spacious, and that's probably where you will mainly be. Lots of crockery, pans and implements if you want to self cater in the villa. WiFi was excellent, which when you have two teenage daughters is an essential. The Negative Side: The Villa is pretty small internally, we were only 4, if you were the maximum 6 and could not live in the outside area it would be cramped. It's on the landing flight path for the airport (check out Google maps) good for plane spotting from the pool. There was an ongoing issue with the pool, it didn't stop us using it, but having people round trying to find the fault did disturb the holiday a bit. Lots of things are not clear on the web description, for example it looks like it has off road parking, but you are asked not to use it and when you get there the gate is padlocked. It looks like it has patio doors to open the front of the villa to the pool area, but you are asked not to use them and you don't have the key to open them. I knew it didn't have air conditioning, but didn't realize how much an issue at night that would be, especially when you needed to keep the windows shut for security and keeping bugs out.
Overall we had a good holiday and the villas positives were part of that, and the negatives did not detract too much.

We absolutely loved this villa. Situated in a quiet cul-de-sac on the Campo de Golf and just a short 15 minute walk from the Atlantico Shopping centre (and beach) it was the perfect spot for a relaxing holiday. The villa was a lot bigger than it looks in the photos and having a dishwasher and washing machine was really handy. What set this villa apart was the amazing outside area which got the sun from dawn until dusk and we loved watching the sun set on the horizon from the beautiful covered terrace and BBQ area. The pool was much larger than the average villa in Caleta and was great for swimming lengths but shallow enough for children too. And it was completely private and not overlooked. All in all a great value villa and one we would definitely want to book again.

The villa is really lovely but we booked a Wednesday to Wednesday stay and there was no change of sheets or towels for a week and as there is no air-conditioning I feel that there should have been a mid week change.
