My family (wife and four children ages 8-17) spent six nights at this rental. We had a great experience. Let me tell you what was great and why you should stay here and then a couple of notes about staying in Sardinia so you are ready.
First - the location was perfect...for what we wanted. We wanted a beach and quiet. This provides both. It's a 20 minute bus ride from busy Alghero and sits in a very quiet secluded area about five minutes off the beach in tiny Maristella. There is one market around the corner (which was great) and that's about it! The beach is literally five minutes away and it's a perfect beach. Not crowded, warm water, plenty to see for snorkeling and lovely sand. We shared the beach space with the Hotel Porte Conte and it's an ideal location. On Saturday and Sunday there are plenty of people, but during the week it was perfect.
We did not rent a car and instead had six bikes. We rode them to Lazarrato beach one day, which was amazing snorkeling, and the ride took 15 minutes. You can easily get to any of the beaches in the area by bike or bus or just walk to the beach around the corner which was our favorite.
Here is the best part of staying at this rental - Angelica and Franco are amazing people. They took care of us so well. Picked us up from the airport, drove us to a dinner appointment one night, took us back to the airport, brought us bruschetta one night and even had us over for a light dinner and singing and playing music. Franco is one of the nicest people ever and an amazing musician. He speaks no English and I don't speak Italian and we somehow carried on great conversations the whole trip. They are wonderful and will take outstanding care of you. They could not have been better hosts.
The apartment is two stories and very roomy. My family of six had no problem spreading out and enjoying the space. It's clean and much more like a house you are visiting.
Here are the qualifiers about Sardinia you need to be prepared for. It is not as polished as, say, the south of France or Spain. But that's wonderful to me and the beaches are better. Second, it gets very hot...and there is no air conditioning in the apartment...or most places in Sardinia. Be ready. We had some hot nights, but so did everyone living there locally.
Enjoy Sardinia, the beaches and Angelica and Franco!
