Probably this is what they would do. This is a genuine 5 Star Villa, not just the property but also the way in which the owner takes care of every little detail to provide a memorable experience. Having visited, I can see why people try to book it from year to year and having stayed there for first time, I'm hoping to do the same. A previous review said the photos don't do justice and that is true. Everything is real quality, incredibly spacious and with so much outdoor terrace space, it would never feel cramped even for a large group. Location is very secluded and quiet, without being overlooked and yet is a few minutes walk from all the restaurants and nightlife. We had a rental car we could take inside the electronic gates. ended up never using the car we were so content to just sit by the pool and have a really relaxing holiday. We ate at a few restaurants recommended by Gerard and posted really positive reviews for each one. All in all, a simply perfect holiday location.

“Just Perfect.”

Just back today from a wonderful 8 days at Villa Pauline. The villa is absolutely gorgeous, very spacious and secure and we couldn't really have asked for anything better. The pictures don't do it justice. Perfect Location- few minutes walk to the strip and just 5 euros in a taxi to the old town and big supermarket.

Pool area was just great, so spacious, plenty of beds, very secluded and loads of space to sit/sunbath- Also used the barby twice.

Games room was great as well.

The whole villa is furnished to a very very hard standard. Sky TV was an added bonus as well- managed to watch Andy Murray win Wimbledon yesterday.

We were a group of 6 friends and we all absolutely loved it. it was just a perfect way to relax. We ate out at a few places Gerard suggested and they were brilliant- both situated at the top end of the strip, just a 5 min walk away. Also ate at the old town which has a great buzz to it and also down at the Sizzling Stone which is down near the bottom of the strip,amazing food.

Gerard very easy to deal with, always there to help with any questions and advise, before and during the trip.

The only thing its missing is wifi which Gerard advised he is sorting at the moment. Even then, you can use it at Villa Alba which is less than a minutes walk away.

I personally didn't like the beds, too hard for me, but that's just a personal preference and just trying to think of something negative.

9/10 for me(Wifi and softer beds would give it a perfect 10)

Already talked about coming back next year whilst on the way home.

The layout of the villa were fantastic. Very high spec.and very spacious. Furnished to the highest standards. Quality furnishing and furniture. Very secure property with alarm system. We loved the pool. The kids enjoyed the pool. It was located in a private place in the garden. Lovely location. Few minutes walk to the strip. Gerard provided us with 1st class information we needed to make our holiday one of the most enjoyable. Gerard is very friendly. He will contact you straight away when you leave a message.The keys were ready and waiting. Beautiful/family friendly restaurants.
