A lovely apartment, perfect for a family of four , although we were 3 adults and 2 teens for a few days and that was fine too. Comfortable, pretty and with all that one needs for a relaxing holiday (good showers, air con, coffee maker, washer, good beds). The flat is set in a very well run small apartment complex ( they even spray against mosquitos every 2 weeks so no bites) right by the beautiful beach. it was just fantastic to be able to get up and go and have a swim first thing in the morning. During the day the beach does get very busy but we were usually out visiting other beaches and when we got back could just pop down for a last swim before a drink on the terrace.
It was my birthday while we were there and Jennifer was so helpful in suggesting restaurants , she was also very good about keeping in touch all the way through the process of renting.
Porto Rotondo is glamorous and not cheap, but it is a really stunning area for a special holiday. Make sure to have an aperitivo on the port before dinner at one of the many good fish restaurants around.
We spent wonderful summerholidays in this cosy retreat! Everything is as it is written in the description, even better! JnA organized everything perfectly so that we were able to relax from the first moment on. They also gave us in advance a brochure with their recommandations for restaurant, beaches and places to visit. We appreciated this very much! We can only recommend this place and its host JnA! Everyone not willing to go to the caribbean sea should visit the costa smeralda!
Me and my family stayed at Ira beach for two weeks in July and loved every minute of it. The house is very well located at the end of a row of houses right next to the beach. It's very well equipped and enough space for our family of five. It was also great to have two bathrooms when fighting for bathroomtime with four girls :-)
The house also has a great patio where you can enjoy time out of the sun. There you can also find a chest with toys for kids that can be used on the beach and you can also borrow two beach beds you can take to the beach which was great. Everyone also got big towels to use on the beach as well as normal ones for the house which was great.
What can I say about the beach other than it was simply perfect. Crystal clear and shallow waters make the perfect playground for young kids. Our youngest is 5 and she had a great time with her sisters, 8 and 10 years playing all day long in sea and on the beach.
There a restaurant next to the house, on the beach and more in town. There's also a supermarket in town and more are just a short drive away. Nearest city is Olbia about 25 minutes drive away.
All communication with our hosts was great with quick and informative replies. All documentation that we received related to the house and it's location was good and helped us a lot.
We hope we can come again to Ira beach soon.
Jessica was a really nice guest!!! thanks
Conocer a Jessica y recibirla en nuestra casa, fue una linda experiencia. Estuvimos en contacto por algunos meses para coordinar algunos detalles de su estadia en nuestra casa de playa en Asia - Perú, así que tenía muchos deseos de conocerla personalmente.
Jessica y su grupo son personas encantadoras, educadas y muy cuidadosas. No dudaríamos en recibirlos como huéspedes en cualquier momento.
Nos encantó conocerte Jessica!!!
I am a long a long time friend of J and this past summer I was fortunate enough to be invited by J and A to their cozy beach front property in Porto Rotondo. J and I work in the fashion world together and I often travel to Milan for work, who knew this paradise was only a 50 min flight away! Our vacation came just after the craziness of Septemberʼs Fashion week, I was blown away by the sunny 80 degree weather that Sardinia had that last week of September and the first week of October. The setting was beautiful and being able to jump into a crystal clear waters, of such a sought after beach, at any time day or night was a unique experience. From Ira beach we booked a small motor boat that allowed us to explore the hidden coves of the emerald coast. Other days we stayed close to home relaxing on the private sand pool overlooking the water,sunbathing, sipping wine, cooking, swimming...heaven! On nights that we didnʼt feel like cooking we explored many of the Porto Rotondo restaurants. One in Particular had us going back many times for their amazing fresh seafood. When staying at J and Aʼs make sure one night you dine at Trattoria Luca e Diana! I loved my time at Jʼs place and I canʼt wait to be invited back again!
The "Ira beach retreat" is truly a unique place, few meters away from the beautiful shallow and clear waters of one of Costa Smeralda's famous beaches. The surroundings offers so much in terms of activities, you can rent out little boats and big ones from the beach along with kayaks and small sail boats, very safe place for kids to frolic around and play sports and when the night comes you can either stay home and relax or join in the hustle and bustle of Porto Rotondo or Porto Cervo for that matter, with all those fancy lounge bars, clubs and restaurants.
I have known JnA for more than a decade and they are nothing but sweethearts. They will sure provide a comfortable stay to their guests! I think is very cool of them to share their awesome little place with the rest of the folks out there.
