WOW!

Peggy J rated on 29. Jul 2019
We were so lucky to stay during 2 weeks in Debbie’s beautiful house! From the entrance of the property you know that your holidays will be successful! The outside spaces are maintained with care, the pool area just makes you want to relax and the interiors offer everyone a living space more than enough! We were 13 people between 8 months and 53 years and everyone found his happiness! The proof, we did not even go out, so we were in paradise! The beds are very confortable, like in the best luxury hotels hotellerie which is very significant especially for 2 weeks. Finally, Debbie is exceptionally responsive, both before the trip and during the stay….and also when we are back!! You will understand, we highly recommend this luxurious villa and we wish you to spend a holiday as successful as ours.

Fantastic Holiday!

By Lee P rated on 25-Jun-2019
We were a group of 18 people (adults and children) and we stayed over the whit-week holiday. We chose this villa from the photos and the activities on site as advertised on HomeAway and I can certainly say that it did not disappoint. Beautiful, well maintained grounds and villa with lots to keep everyone entertained – Amazing Swimming Pool / Tennis Court / Volleyball / Table Tennis / pool table etc.

The location is very private which was great for us as we didn’t have to worry about kids being too loud (or the adults) however supermarkets & shops in Benissa are only a few minute’s drive away. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone and hope to visit again soon.

Fantastic and dreamlike a property that exceeded all expectations!

 

Media Atis rated this home 5/5 on 26 September 2019

First, I want to say I want to go back to the villa and spend the rest of my life there. It’s really an incredible dream property and it’s perfectly equipped.

The occasion of our trip was a company anniversary and we booked the property for 20 people. It was not easy to find accommodation of this size in advance. It was important to us that all fellow travellers had a nice room with a comfortable bed and private bathroom.

The pool was also at the top of our wish list and ideally there is a large, convivial table for dining outside. When I discovered the property in Benissa, I was already so enthusiastic about the pictures that we asked for the accommodation without further ado. The communication with Oodles was fast, reliable and courteous. We received a lot of support in selecting caterers and providers of activities in the area.

When we finally arrived, our expectations were absolutely exceeded. The house is beautifully furnished, very clean and perfectly equipped. The large kitchen invites you to cook, the bedrooms are cosy and provide a good night’s sleep. The outdoor area is equipped with a lounge area, a large (sun covered) dining area and a bar with a gigantic grill. Around the wonderful pool there are many possibilities to sit and relax. Around the house there is a tennis court, a boules court, a small volleyball court and a table tennis table.

In the house, lovers of billiards can play a round. We are glad that we had planned only one trip out during our stay, because the house offers so many possibilities and hardly any wishes remain open. Part of the group made an excursion on a kayak, touring along the coast with a snorkeling trip. The other part of the group who were more courageous went to Anna for canyoning. Both were very exciting and it was nice to return to such a beautiful house after the activity.

During our stay we had a self organized a barbecue on one evening and a caterer on 2 evenings, it really is great to just sit down at the table and enjoy. There are many well-stocked supermarkets nearby. By the way, for toddlers and babies the house offers incredible equipment – from a baby monitor, child seat, changing blanket, baby cot up to a swimming tire there is simply everything.

We more than enjoyed our stay, the anniversary was a complete success and all fellow travellers still think back longingly to the beautiful days in Benissa.

Excellent!

By Kelly D rated on 23-Jun-2018
This is a trip I cannot recommend enough. Not only is the property fabulous in itself, it is wonderfully well kept and clean. We had a great mixture of people with some wanting to just stay by the pool while others were keen for activities, this villa catered for everyone with the wide range of facilities available.

Aside from the villa itself I think the trip was made truly special by the attentive customer service we received throughout. The attention to detail and willingness to help is unparalleled. Recommendations for activities in the local area and low cost transport are just some of the benefits from renting with Debbie and Ian. Our whole group loved it – and we all cannot wait to return!

Wonderful Property!

By Maureen K rated on 19-Aug-2017
Our family of 12 made up of 8 adults and 4 children with ages ranging from 76 to 7 had a wonderful time staying at this well maintained villa. The villa itself was well equipped, comfortable and spacious. The grounds, swimming pool and villa give the wow factor on arrival. The journey from Alicante was straight-forward and the excellent instructions from Debbie ensured we arrived stress-free. From the time we booked the villa Debbie has been very helpful and forthcoming with all kinds of information and during our stay was very quick to answer any little queries we might have. It has been a pleasure dealing with Debbie and Ian and we were all very sad when our holiday came to an end. We hope to visit again at some point in the future.

Simply Perfect!

Blinkhorn Family rated this home 5/5 on 8. Aug 2019
A family holiday for 17 of us ranging in age from 2 to 72- it was perfect. The villa itself is immaculate and in a quiet yet very accessible location in countryside close to Benissa town centre.The decor is modern and tasteful throughout the villa; the bedrooms are all ensuite with effective air-conditioning and the swimming pool and environs simply stunning with a high end resort vibe. Tennis and volleyball courts, pool and pétanque meant everyone was occupied all of the time with lots of team activities.

There was so much to occupy us at the villa and it was such a wonderful environment to stay in that we rarely left the villa. The BBQ and bar area worked very well and the modern kitchen with huge island unit was a wonderful space to socialise as well as prepare food! The beds were super comfortable and the air-conditioning in all bedrooms kept us cool on the hot nights.

The host, Debbie was super friendly and knowledgeable and nothing was too much trouble, everything we had requested was provided and more. I cannot recommend this villa more highly, it was by far the best family holiday we have ever experienced- a truly amazing time was had by all of us at this stunning villa.

Outstanding Property!

By Glenda M rated on 22-Jul-2017
This property was so beautiful that the pictures can never do it justice. Our families enjoyed our stay, we felt like it was a home away from home. The outdoor pool area was were we spent most of our time, everything was done to an excellent finish and with so much details. You can tell that Debbie and Ian have thought through every details even providing a cooler box and you can feel the love they have for the villa that you can help but to fall in love with this magnificent villa. We created so many special memories and it will forever stay with us, thanks Debbie and Ian and we will definitely be back again.

Exceptional in everyway!

By Una C rated on 25-Jun-2016
Oodles Retreat is truly exceptional. The quality and spaciousness of this property cannot be overstated. We were a group of 13 people ages ranging from 10 months to 70 years. The pool, tennis court and volleyball area were top class. A variety of lovely eating areas, a super Bbq. Supermarkets just a few minutes drive away and stunning cliff road drives to pretty upmarket towns. The owners Debbie and Ian were only a phone call away and always extremely helpful. They even posted some forgotten items to us. I just can’t say enough positive things…we had a ball.

Best family holiday ever!

Kathleen B rated on 26. Jul 2019
Debbie and Ian couldn’t have been any more accommodating and amazing to work with, from planning to our arrival and stay. The property is exactly as advertised and even better than we imagined. It’s loaded with things to do. From the incredible pool and sun lounge areas to pétanque, billiards, volleyball, table tennis and tennis courts. It would be impossible to get bored here. As a matter of fact, it was so much fun that we didn’t leave for ‘day trips’ as often as we thought.

The bedrooms are spacious and comfortable and the kitchen is fully equipped with everything you’ll need. Same with the outdoor cooking area. I understand how important it is to find a vacation rental property that meets the needs of everyone. Especially for the host/organizer. So, let me assure you, if you’re contemplating renting this villa, you will not be disappointed. Thanks Debbie and Ian, for making this a trip of a lifetime. We created some amazing memories at Oodles Resort in Benissa. I hope we get the opportunity to stay with you again one day.  Much thanks, from your new Canadian friends

Absolutely fabulous place!

By Danielle T rated on 25 September 2019
The place is AMAZING!!!! I stayed here with my family (10 adults/8 children) and we couldn’t of wished for more. The house is so big, not once did we feel like we were on top of each other. All bedrooms were lovely and the fact that we all had en-suites was great. The living areas (yes there are 3) and the kitchen/dining areas were lovely. We ate outside each night as the weather was perfect. The whole house is decorated to such a high standard. The pool is a great size and even though we bought inflatables with us there were inflatables for the kids there already, which was a nice touch. The tennis court, French boules and pool table were also enjoyed on a daily basis. We didn’t need to go out we had everything we needed at the villa and not once were we bored. We hired a chef for two nights, had a cocktail making class another evening and a mermaid school for the kids another day. All the details for these were supplied by Oodles who were fantastic hosts. They were on hand whenever we needed anything and could not have done anymore for us. They sure were the best host I have ever come across. We made lots of memories and will definitely return again!!!!

Outstanding & Spacious!

By Nick L rated on 16-May-2015
My family and I have spent many holidays away in some very special and well equipped villas around the world.

This villa is certainly up with the very best. It was very easy to navigate to and set back away from the crazy resorts, however only a short drive to fulfill this crave?

The villa is located in a position that you are not overlooked and the layout permits you to spend some quieter time away from the rest of the family when they get too much! The majority of the bedrooms (all immaculate) are down the stairs to a basement area. This is perfect for families with kids as the don’t get disturbed by rowdy adults playing dominos and drinking wine into the small hours!

The pool is perfect for very young children when swimming is all about confidence. There is a gentle slop in which is very unusual in a pool, but perfect for us though. There are lots of amenities on site with the tennis court (many calories burnt on that) outside BBQ area and plenty of scope to eat in/out depending on weather etc. The villa, although I understand has been refurbished again was well appointed and had everything we could ever need. The appliances were in excellent condition with several fridges/freezers for food and more importantly beer/wine.

The owners of the villa are so friendly and were so informative about where to eat/go out and which shops were best (again minutes from the villa) they answered ANY query and spoiler us by having some bubbly on our arrival!

To sum it up, for families with very young children, teenagers, family groups and even the saga side of the scale! This villa will suit ALL. I have NEVER been back to the same villa twice as there are so many to enjoy, however we were all so blown away by the villa and perfect hospitality of the owners, that we have booked it again and taking the other side of the family to enjoy.

Looking forward to seeing the changes and will be interested to see how they have improved on perfection!
