About Lesley Dodds


We are Lesley and Jimmy we are both retired and have been married for 42 years, we have two sons and four grandaughters. We are from the Northeast of England. We came to Bulgaria for the first time in 1994 and fell in love with all that it has to offer; hence when we took early retirement 12 years ago and bought land on the hillside of Inzaraki, St Vlas, Sunny Beach, Bulgaria and built our properties which we are very proud to present for rental. We are sure you'll enjoy your holiday as much as we love living here.

Lesley Dodds purchased this villa in 2004

Why Lesley Dodds chose Sveti Vlas

We bought land and built our properties in this location for the panaramic views of sea and mountains and the fact that it is so convenient for the resorts of the tranquil St Vlas, Lively Sunny Beach and the historic town of Nesseber. We are close enough but also far enough away from the hussle and bussle of Sunny Beach making it easy to retreat and relax. The locals are very friendly and always happy to help. We have a very good relationship with the local taxi drivers who always give our guests a great service.

The air in the area is so pure which helps anyone with breathing problems, I suffer from asthma but only when back in the UK I dont have to use my medication when I am here.

Sorry but unfortunately the properties are not suitable for anyone with mobility problems.

What makes this villa unique

The property is situated so that you can enjoy views of the mountains to the North, the bay of Sunny Beach and Nessebar to the South. The pool is private with a barbecue area, tables, chairs and sun beds provided. The property is fully equipped with tv, dvd, washing machine, cooker ,fridge, microwave, toaster etc, fully air conditioned. All bedding & towels provided & changed weekly.

The property is within 10/15mins walking distance to shops, banks, restaurants and beach. We live local to the property and if needed will assist in every way to make your holiday as enjoyable as possible. Welcome packs can also be provided if requested. Airport transfers can be arranged on request.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Hi Lesley and Jim.I know we said it when we were leaving but on behalf of myself Ann and the kids I'd just like to say a massive thank you for making our stay so enjoyable. I think it's fair to say without your guiding hand on where to go, booking restaurants etc our stay would have been much less enjoyable so thanks again.We hope to see you again and wish you well for the remainder of the summer season.

hi lesley

first want to say what a lovely holiday we had at your villa, we felt very welcome and had a brilliant time.we are looking to return next year.

best regards

adi fawell

My wife an I booked this holiday as we fancied somewhere a bit different, the pictures of the apartment and the previous reviews swung it for us.

Once booked it was plain sailing from then on in.

Jimmy and Lesley contacted us and offered us a couple of simple services, transfer and a delivered shopping list, all sitting there waiting to go, not to mention a crate of ice cold beer !

We were greeted at the gate by Jimmy and Lesley who took time to ensure we were all ok and helped us settle into the apartment which was well maintained and very spacious with a beautiful pool and BBQ area.

Once settled Jimmy, who from here on in shall be known as "THE ORACLE " took time out to give us a quick guided tour of the area and point out where the shops are, quickest route to the beach, the marina, places of interest and also the best restaurants. He also took us up to Khans tent which is a restaurant with a cabaret and advised us to book a week early if we wanted to go, we took him up on his offer and was not disappointed it was a great evening, he even arranged the taxi for us.

All through our holiday nothing was too much trouble for this couple and every enquiry we asked was answered easily, it seemed like Jimmy knew the entire town!

If you are thinking of booking this apartment do not hesitate, 15 minute stroll to the beach with plenty of bars studded along it, crystal clear water where in certain areas you could go out about 100m before you needed to swim, big supermarket at the bottom of the hill , if like us you don't want to eat out every night.

This was a very enjoyable holiday and with only 1 downside , it rained for a couple of days, as even Jimmy couldn't fix the weather for us !!

All in a fantastic holiday in a great location with very welcoming hosts, you will not be disappointed.

Blagodarya ( thank you ).

When we arrived we were driven around the area by Jimmy, who even waited while we did a shop at the local supermarket.!!!! He managed to get us tickets for the show at the Tent restaurant, which was well worth a visit. He also had a lot of local knowledge, which came in useful. as we were out and about a lot of the time. The villa was very spacious airy and clean, and everything you needed was there making it very comfortable indeed. The pool was lovely with plenty of sunbeds around it. The surrounding area was nice and quiet, and even the track down to the supermarket

was quite easy to manage. Jimmy and Lesley have a really lovely villa and they are very helpful and friendly as well. Even on our last day, when we found out our flight was to be delayed by 22 hours, we were offered another nights accommodation if it would make life easier.!!!! If we return to Bulgaria it would certainly be to this villa.

Villa was clean and well equipped

  • 4 of 5

Myself and some friends stayed for a week and have just recently left the villa. The owners Jimmy and Lesley are very likeable and accomodating. They offered to do some shopping before we arrived and then Jimmy took me to the supermarket to stock up.

The pool is a shared pool which didn't pose a problem to us but if you like privacy this might not be for you.

The villa is on a hill and therefore not suitable for those with mobility difficulties

Overall we all had a great time and would recommend this villa.

We had a wonderful family holiday at this property. The listing was exactly as described - clean, spacious, family friendly with excellent facilities. The owners Jimmy & Lesley were splendid hosts - their advice, help & offer of driving us around was invaluable to us and together they were such an asset to our holiday. Thank you! My husband, sister & our 4 teenagers had a fabulous time - Sveti Vlas ticked all the boxes for us - quiet, beautiful beach nearby and wonderful restaurants. I can highly recommend this property for a proper relaxing holiday. Thank you again Jimmy & Lesley. Alex, Debs & Katie et al xx
