Reviewers Rating: Excellent
Loved the pics of this villa we saw on HomeAway (rented direct through the owner who was very nice & helpful). Once I got on the travel forums, I started getting a little nervous reading about the Sirenusa project nearby and that it was for sale.
Well, we stayed there a few weeks ago and I have some good news, updates, and a short review which I hope will help others considering this villa as others reviews I had read had helped me a lot.
First, Perelandra--while it looks nice in the HomeAway pictures--looks much nicer in person even! We really loved it there. The pool area was very private and so enjoyable with colorful bougainvilla blooming everywhere along with jasmine & a bunch of other flowers I didn't recognize.
The views really are as great as everyone says. It's just SO calming to me to be able to look out over that beautiful water and all those little islands. We loved waking up to that view, getting back in time to watch the sunset, and then watching the lights flicker as we nodded off to sleep.
A very comfortable home. We had everything we needed--whether it was to listen to music, watch movies, go to the beach, cook in, whatever.
Perelandra is very well-maintained, clean. It's nice to have a washer & dryer.
Noise from Sirenusa was never a problem for us. Plus Perelandra is not for sale--I guess it was on the market for about a year but the owners decided against selling it. So no issue about that either.
All in all, we had a wonderful time, have already recommended Perelandra to others, and would love to return & stay there again some day.
