Great location! Great house that needs more attention
The house is on a great location. On the beach en close to many good resraurants. We have had a great holliday in Valencia. We love it! The house has enough space too accomodate 6p (Not more).
Although the house has a lovely spanish style and we enjoyed being there, it also has some defects and deficiencies that should be repared/improved, given de price you pay for the house.
Lots of light do not work because light bulbs are missing.
The kitchen sink(cabinet) is broken.
The internet (wifi) is unstable and very slow (limited bandwith)
The oven is broken.
The pool could be cleaned better.
Many blinds on the windows are broken.
There is no vacuum cleaner, so sand from the beach is hard to remove.
The sheets for the beds are too small.
There is no key for the back door, so this cannot be closed.
The door bell (intercom) is not working
The rail of the stairs to the first floor is broken.
Dear Carine and Mark,
Thanks for taking the time to write a review and also for giving me some details. I am sorry, as I could not meet you because I was out of Valencia while you were here.
Also sorry as you did not email or call me for all these details as many of them would have been solved just with an explanation:
- Yes there is a key that closes the back door. Why you did not ask me where it is?
- There is a hose at the patio front door to take out all sand from you before entering the house. We use a vacuum for cleaning but we keep it close: in 6 years renting the house nobody has asked me for the vacuum: if you told me I could send my housekeeper with the vacuum. Why you did not ask me?
- The WiFi is a good and high speed: I could call the operator to reset the modem or ask what was happening. Why you did not tell me?
- We send all sheets and towels to a professional laundry: may be because of the high temperature they have shrink: we will check
- The doorbell sometimes goes off when it rains and just with a click it goes on again. Why you did not tell me the doorbell was not working while you were here? I am always at my mobile and email.
- While guests are at the house we clean the pool from time to time but do not want bothering guests while they are on holidays. The pool is open air and the frequency of cleaning depends on the weather and the use of guests (body milks, sunbathing creams they use, ..) . If the pool goes not that clean before we think why you did not call me to ask for more frequency of cleaning the pool instead of complaining when your holiday is over?
We love guests being happy in our villa. we like very much talking to them, meeting people from all over the world who come to Valencia for an experience. I try to answer all their emails quickly and being available 24/365 for them. But you did not answer any of my emails: it has been a lack of communication.
It is true that this summer has been hectic and many times we did the changeover in just some hours as guests left the house in the morning and new guests were arriving in the afternoon. Now in September that we have bookings for long weekends and some days are available we will check everything.
I am sorry all these happen to you and thank you because you gave a 4 out to 5 stars to the house: yes the location is great, the house is comfortable and the pool is a plus. I really would like you come again and experience “Malvabeach Family House” as it is usually.
a perfect get away for our family of 9.
The villa is in an ideal position for access to both beach and city. Lovely pool, lots of space to relax. The owner was very hospitable and willing to help with booking any of our requirements. We would definitely book and stay here again.
Fantastic location, right on the beach
The villa is in a great location, 15-20 minutes walk from the metro and right on the beach. There's a consum supermarket round the corner with all sorts of supplies and great meat and fish counters. A few doors down is a very good restaurant specialising in paella, just make sure you book at least a day in advance, there's an open kitchen that you can go in while the paella is bubbling away.
The villa itself has a large front room where you can escape when it's too hot and the pool is well maintained and refreshing when the sun is out. The villa is probably better set up for larger groups rather than 4 adults and one baby as we were, we didn't need to use the hostel style top floor.
The owner and his son were very friendly and helpful, the only real criticism of the property was a lack of some basic equipment such as decent sized drinking glasses, chopping knives etc and the villa could really do with a booklet explaining how the kitchen equipment works, things to do in the local area etc. Also both bathrooms got very hot when the shower was on due to no extractor fans.
Overall though it's a great base to access the beach and central Valencia from, probably best for larger groups to split the cost though
Lovely place to stay
We loved staying at this villa. The location is perfect. Buses are excellent here, there are a number of different stops very close by and very regular service to the heart of Valencia. The beach is so close (just cross over the road) and is beautifully clean, sandy and safe swimming for children. There are some lovely cafes and bars in very nearby Patacona within walking distance (again 5 minutes) with excellent menus, even for those with particular dietary needs eg gluten free/vegan or lactose intolerant. With 4 adults and 3 children, there was plenty of space in the house. It has all the facilities you would need and more and the swimming pool was fantastic and very popular with us, even for swimming in the evenings. There are 2 supermarkets within a 5 minute walk and other interesting shops to wander around. The owner, Pilar, was brilliant, very quick to respond to any questions or concerns and very helpful in organising our transfer taxis and things to make our stay as pleasant as possible. Antonio showed us round when we arrived and was friendly and helpful. Valencia itself is easily reachable and we very much enjoyed exploring it and the local area during our stay. I would definitely recommend this property and we very much hope to visit again.
Excellent location and owners
Our family (9 people from Ukraine) were on this villa for 5 days in October. Villa is situated near the beautiful beach (50 m.), supermarket and a lot of restaurants along the beach. The owners of villa are very friendly and pleasant. There is free parking opposite the villa and WI-FI inside.
He estado en Malvabeach Family House con unos amigos durante las Fallas en Valencia. Nos ha hecho un tiempo estupendo y además de ver fallas hemos aprovechado para pasear y jugar en la playa. La playa de la Malvarrosa tiene un gran espacio de arena donde se puede jugar muy bien al voley, al futbol, etc.
La casa es cómoda y muy agradable. Cuando llegabamos por las tardes agotados de pasear por la ciudad, sentarnos en las tumbonas del porche al sol era una delicia.Algún día tambien hemos tomado una cerveza en los bares que hay en la playa: se estaba genial!
Pilar nos atendió muy bien: todo fue muy facil desde el momento que solicitamos informacion sobre la casa hasta que nos fuimos. ¡Además nos invitaron a una paella en una casa de campo! Gracias: ¡volveremos!
Gracias Jaime! Espero veros de nuevo por aquí
Deze prachtige moderne villa ligt op slechts 30 meter van het strand van Malvarrosa en is uniek: het biedt een fantastische locatie aan het strand en ligt slechts een paar kilometer van het historische centrum van de stad Valencia. Het strand van Malvarrosa ligt net ten noorden van de haven van Valencia en biedt gasten bijna 3 kilometer schoon wit zand en kristalhelder water. De omgeving werd van oudsher bewoond door vissers en het is momenteel de thuisbasis van een aantal moderne ontwikkelingen en biedt gasten een ruime keuze aan restaurants en cafés. Valencia zelf is een levendige stad vol geschiedenis en cultuur, van de klassieke architectuur en levendige markt in de kathedraalwijk tot de smalle straatjes van El Carmen of de ultramoderne Stad van de Kunsten en Wetenschappen.
Er zijn veel restaurants en cafetaria's op de strandwandeling van Malvarrosa, waar u 'tapas' kunt krijgen aan het zandstrand. Een beroemd restaurant gespecialiseerd in paella en Valencia-rijst ligt op slechts 20 meter van de villa die aan uw linkerhand loopt (Casa Carmela). Er zijn vele andere restaurants gespecialiseerd in paella in Paseo Neptuno (500 meter van de villa lopen naar rechts): La Pepica, La Rosa, El Coso, El Estimat, La Muñeca, etc.
De villa ligt heel dicht bij het Blasco Ibañez-museum: Blasco Ibañez was een belangrijke politicus en schrijver. Hij woonde in een villa op 20 meter van het familiehuis van Malvarrosa en dit gebouw is momenteel een museum dat een bezoek waard is. Blasco Ibañez was een goede vriend van Joaquin Sorolla, een beroemde schilder uit Valencia: ze ontmoetten elkaar vaak op het strand van Malvarrosa: Blasco Ibañez dacht na over zijn boeken en Sorolla nam schetsen voor zijn schilderijen.
