We spent a fantastic week in Villa Stella, it was a real joy.
A very well maintained lovely home with friendly and helpful hosting family.
The location is perfect, quiet and relaxing. The huge garden is great for the kids to play and the whole house exactly as pictured. The friendly owners provided for all our needs, superb breakfast and dinner meals and gave great recommendations for places to visit, specially beaches.
We thank you for your hospitality and attention again, definitely we will be back.

“This is a shared house, not a villa”
Reviewed 5 October 2016 for a stay in July 2016

people found this review helpful

We returned from this villa in July 2016. I feel compelled to write in detail as its really important that potential renters understand what they are getting.

1.  The Villa Stella Maris is not a private villa. The yellow building shown in the pictures, is actually a house that you share with the owners parents. The owners kitchen door opens straight into your kitchen, with a one way lock. This means you have no real privacy.

2. Appliances advertised didn't work. The owners told us the dishwasher was 'not working' as we arrived, no attempt to repair, just an offer to wash up, which tailed off. The freezer box in a fridge has no door, which means it could not freeze anything, so no dishwasher and no freezer, (in high summer) despite being listed as part of the rental.

3. This is much more budget feel than the pictures suggest. The bedrooms are large and have some nice ornaments, but this is the exception.  Scratch the surface (or visit) and its low grade; the mattresses were thin and unclean in places (photo), the pillows are polyester and the towels shabby. Worse, there is only one bathroom and toilet for 6 guests which is smaller than an average en-suite. All in all the overriding impression is one of minimum outlay by the owner to anticipate maximum return. Very low spec.(see photo of package pallets made into sunbeds, you couldn't make it up...)

4. The villa is most definately NOT child friendly. A wobbly rope hand rail for a very steep and stone staircase is not childfriendly. The roof terrace is an accident waiting to happen. Our kids are 6 & 7 and these were issues for us, I can't imagine how stressful this would be if you had toddlers. The advertisement of a high chair does not make a location child friendly.

There were other issues that really almost spoilt our holiday, though these have not been listed as these would not be relevant, however I feel it is imperative that prospective viewers are clear about the complete lack of privacy, the substandard appliances and the facts that mitigate the child friendly status.

If you are looking for e very nice place to stay, here it is. A lovely spacious and clean accommodation in a natural and quiet environment where you can relax and discover Alhero and its beautiful environment.. The house is decorated with great taste. We stayed here for 9 days and were really spoiled by the friendly people running this place. The best meals we had during our holiday were here in Stella Maris. The food and wine were excellent and the service was perfect. OK, no internet yet, but that helps to switch of and really relax and enjoy the nice things in live like a lovely dinner on the porch, enjoying the sunset. I can really recommend a stay with these very kind people who really know what hospitality means.

“Beautiful Villa with fantastic service in the country side”
Reviewed 22 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

On our arrival the garden smelled wonderful from the blooming honeysuckle and the garden is wonderfully lit by the setting sun. Though the hour was late we were welcomed with a toast in homemade Limoncino and served a nice dinner. In short a wonderful first impression that lasted our whole stay!
Service and hospitality is of highest quality, genuine and friendly.

The room is tastefully decorated and well furnished for our family of two adults and two children. Bathroom is clean and practical. The shared kitchen is well aquiped and set with a large dining table. We preordered breakfast for the entire stay which was wonderfully presented to us on the porch, each day with different types of fruit, Italian or hungarian specialities and tasty surprices for our kids.

Villa Stella Maris is situated a short distance (10min by car) from the nice town of Alghero and the location is perfect for visiting several beautiful beaches of different character (the owners will give you excellent tips). The proximity to the airport (like 15 minutes by car) was also a pleasant surprice once we realized that.

We highly recommend Villa Stella Maris to anyone looking for a relaxing stay while exploring the north of Sardinia.

“Tranquil and charming.”
Reviewed 18 June 2015 for a stay in April 2015

From the moment we were greeted by our lovely hosts we felt confident that we would enjoy our stay. We were welcomed warmly and with the villa being off of the beaten track it was very easy to relax. The room was well presented and the bed as comfortable as we could wish for. The views across the citrus orchard were wonderful also. The beach, historic old town and airport are only 10 mins away by car so very easy to get to. All in all a wonderful place to visit and the Villa Stella Maris a wonderful place to stay. I'm sure we will visit again soon.
