We had a wonderful family trip at Nancy's Beachfront Villa. Nancy was pleasant to work with and was always quick to reply with any questions or offer suggestions, etc. The house is lovely and is represented well in the photos. Everything was as we expected except a few things that are not clear by the listing. First off, this is a downstairs unit with another unit directly above. Their patio looks over the pool so it is not quite as private as you might expect with the title of Villa. Second, the beach out front is not swimmable. With the pool right in front, one would think this would not be a problem, but we had a few issues with the pool upon arrival, which definitely put a down side on our first few days! It was so hot and we just wanted to jump right into some water and could not! We had arrived a day after a storm (which had allowed an entire day for the pool to be serviced and it was not) The pool was filled with debris and overfull with water which prevented the filter from working properly. After numerous attempts contacting the property manager with no reply, we took it upon ourselves to have the pool serviced by the neighbor's pool guy and finally got the pool in working order by the third day! (There is a community pool down the street, but not the same experience as jumping into your own pool!) The second issue we had was the lack of housekeeping. We were there for 8 days without any service at all. Not what I would expect for the price point or the location. Luckily, we are a tidy family! Another point is we were told we could use the beach and all services at the Palmilla, except the pools. Yes, you can use the sand and the water at the beach, because all beaches are public, but you cannot rent lounge chairs or umbrellas, etc. for any price! We had stayed at the Palmilla many years ago and were engaged there, so we were hoping to share the experience with our adult children on this trip. We were clearly not welcome and It certainly was not the reception we expected. Overall the house was lovely, the setting is beautiful and we had a wonderful stay despite the pool issue. I would recommend this unit if you are not expecting to use the facilities at the Palmilla because it is in Villa del Mar, not The one and only Palmilla.
