This apartment is really nicely maintained and close to the harbour where there are lovely restaurants and shops. The supermarket is a short walk so easy to stock up on food if you want to self cater. Lovely beaches a short walk away. We had a very relaxing holiday - just what we needed.
Eva was a great host and offered some suggestions of places to eat and activities nearby. Everything was as described. The garden is a sun trap - when we were there in January the pool was a bit icy for my taste but I'm sure it comes in handy in the hotter months.
Great villa and location, we like to have places to go within walking distance and the location is perfect for this with the marina a pleasant walk by the sea one way and shopping centre some shops and bars and a cafe the other way. If you don't want to walk the bus stop is not far away and takes you to the centre of playa blanca. The villa was a great size, very clean and well equipped kitchen if you like to cook the odd meal. The villa was also very secure with lockable shutters on windows and doors. Eva is a great host, just a text away if you need anything, would definitely recommend.
This villa is perfect in so many ways. It is spacious, well decorated and very clean. Our favourite part of the house was outside, where we spent most of our time next to, or in, the pool. The garden gets the sun all day and when it gets too hot you can move over to the comfy outdoor sofa in the shade.
The location of the villa is great with a supermarket around the block and a pleasant walk to the marina where there are plenty of restaurants to choose from.
We cooked quite a few meals in the kitchen and it has everything you need.
The only small negative notes are that the bed in the master bedroom isn't the most comfortable bed but it's not the worst! Also there isn't any air conditioning but we didn't mind that as there was a pleasant breeze from the window.
One of the other positives worth mentioning is the exceptional communication from Eva, the owner. She was a fantastic host from before we arrived to our departure. I knew that if we needed anything at all she was just a text message away. She replies very quickly and is keen to make sure you enjoy your holiday.
We can't wait to go back and highly recommend Villa Kenia!
Myself and 2 other adults are currently staying here for a week and it has been amazing. The villa is gorgeous, very clean, light and spacious. There is everything you could ever need here with shops and restaurants only a very short walk away.
The pool is lovely and deep - comes up to my neck and I am 6ft. The really lovely thing about the garden is that it's sheltered from a lot of the wind which means you still get a light breeze to keep you cool in the day but even when it's cloudy you can lay outside and never get cold day or night. The garden is also south facing so you have sun all day.
The beds are hard - typical for Europe but acceptable to sleep on.
We spent most of our time outdoors on this holiday due to the lovely outside sofa area.
This place would be great for a family or a couple.
All in all a great holiday so far! We would come back.
Stayed in this lovely villa for 2 weeks in March 2017. The booking process with Eva was easy. She contacted us with all the information required to find the villa and with a lot of info about the surrounding area.
The villa is about a 10/15 mins walk to the Marina along a lovely promenade. The marina had a lot of if restaurants to choose from as well as a supermarket and shops. The walk into Playa Blanca was again along a promenade and took approximately 35/40 minutes.
The villa itself was very well equipped. The outside terrace area was excellent- south facing so had sun all day. There were lots of relaxing options to sit, sun bathe on the terrace. There is a good supermarket very close to villa and the bus into Playa Blanca is very close.
We travelled to Puerto Calero and Puerto del Carmen by bus which was very easy and reasonably priced.
We ate in a lot of restaurants but our favourite was one recommended by Eva which was quite close to villa - Casa Carlos.
Eva responded to any query we had very quickly via WhatsApp and I would happily return to Villa Kenia
