Idyllic Beach House
Wonderful property just steps from a beautiful beach. The villa is completely renovated, clean and very comfortable for a family of 4. It's well maintained by a local property manager who was more than happy to accommodate us with our needs or requests. It has a full kitchen, fully equipped for cooking meals when we chose not to eat out. Free WIFI (very important for teenage boys!) and cozy outdoor space.
Close to a grocery store, restaurants, and the beach lounge was a pleasure to spend time at.
We really enjoyed our time in Solanas, we'd go back to this property in a heartbeat.
Small, but clean and cozy
Nice home. Clean. Felt a bit small for our family of 4, despite having 3 bedrooms. But it’s quaint and nice. Probably would’ve preferred having 2 bathrooms for our stay; or at least have the 1 bathroom be a larger size. It was cramped and there’s very little storage (for a woman’s makeup/toiletries). The shower has absolutely no shelves or area to place soap/Shampoo bottles at all. There a window in the shower but no covering over it. We had to use other small towels hung in it, to give some privacy. Which soaked them and prevented them being used elsewhere. And with only 1 towel per person for the whole week, we used up all we had, rather quickly.
The beds are very thin mattresses, which made for restless nights. I’ve not had back pain in over 10 years (live a very fitness-related lifestyle); but had to take ibuprofen for back pain, every morning after I got out of bed.
We understand it’s a very wet climate there; but didn’t realize the bedrooms were in the basement. I’m sure this is perfect for hot summers; but it was very damp and moldy feeling, down there. I was extremely concerned for my youngest, who has Asthma. He’d just gotten over a very serious Asthmatic/lung-related sickness, prior to traveling for holiday. Luckily he didn’t get sick again; but the damp rooms and air in the basement greatly concerned us for his health.
The beach area is beautiful and so close by. We loved being able to walk there so easily. We hiked the hills at the edge of the beach, also. Having some easy-to-carry beach chairs on hand, would be perfect, as well as a WiFi router (even if the patron paid for time used, himself). The home is quaint, and if a family had smaller children, I think it would be plenty of room. Ours are older, so it just seemed that we didn’t have enough of our own space, while there.
Also, if the bathroom door could be fixed where it opens inside the restroom, instead of into the hall; it would be more convenient. It needs to remain open after taking a shower, to allow the RR to clear out all the steam (for mirrors etc...); but in order to keep the door open, it opens into the very narrow hallway. And no one can get by, without closing it back.
I am sorry your stay was not as you had hoped. If you had mentioned your concerns during the multiple conversations we had during your holiday, we could have addressed them. Some, I must say are a surprise since you told us you had a great and relaxing vacation.
- We would have let you know that there is a large drawer for storage below the sink in the bathroom.
- That you can use the ledge of the window for your soaps.
- For your towels, we would have simply provided more.
- The property manager can also provide wifi.
Also, I'm surprised to hear that you found it cramped. With 75m2 of living space plus the veranda and garden, we have always found it to be perfect for our vacations with our children.
We had advised you about the heavy rains before your stay that made the basement unusually humid and we did what we could to correct it. We had even offered to cancel your stay with a full refund.
Our mattresses are new and it can be a challenge to accommodate the personal taste of each guest when it comes to firmness.
We did take your advice and added a frosting to the bathroom window. We hadn't received any complaints prior to this.
I hope that I have done my best to address your concerns and that you still enjoyed your time on the island.
Beautiful Villa Steps from the Beach
I can't say enough about this beautiful villa, it was like something out of a movie.
When we arrived at the Cagliari airport, we contacted the property manager, Francesco who was very pleasant and great to work with. He met us at the villa as soon as we arrived and showed us around. He even gave us plenty of suggestions of things to do and places to see during our stay. The villa is in a gated neighborhood so we felt very safe the entire time.
We arrived to a newly-renovated, fully-equipped 3 bedroom villa just steps from the beautiful beach with very clear water. The beach also has a little resto bar right on it where they serve food and drinks. The villa came equipped with beach equipment as well which was really nice, we were able to bring a sun umbrella and spent an entire day on the beach.
The villa is also close to two markets, two bars and some restaurants. It's a close drive to Villa Simius in which we visited twice, as well as the main city of Cagliari.
I recommend this stay to anyone, whether it is a couple on a honeymoon (as we were) or a family looking for a relaxing vacation.
Perfect for a family vacation
The house was clean and well maintained
Plenty of room for a family
A 2 minute walk to a beautiful beach
It was within walking distance of the outdoor weekly market and general store.
I definitely recommend this property
A friend and I had a fabulous week in Sardinia. The villa is steps away from the beach. We were there in early Oct. The weather was warm 27- 30c and the beaches weren't crowded. We enjoyed eating on the veranda and walking to the beach to watch the sunsets. Though some places were closed for the season we still had no trouble finding everything we needed including good resturants. Fraqncesco, The property manager was very aimiable and helpful with his suggestions.
All in all one of the best beach holidays I have had.
Solanas is located approximately 35 km from Elmas airport in Cagliari and only a 15 min drive from the town of Villasimius - known for its unique shops, cafes, restaurants and nightlife. An evening stroll is a must! It's a lovely scenic drive along coastal roads, undoubtedly one of the most beautiful in Sardinia. Also only a short distance away is the town of Costa Rei, which also features cove beaches and restaurants. With so much to choose from, Solanas is your perfect holiday getaway.
