Great place if you want peace a view & a beach on your door step, well almost! The apartment was high up with a tranquil view, it does mean either use of easy steps or a path to the beach. The beach can also be reached via a car if the walk is too much, a car really is needed for this place.If you are young and don't mind using the bus there is one that comes to the beach area. Not sure how often they run. Wonderful holiday with blue sky was had for us even though it was October, warm too! The apartment had everything you needed it was very well equipped. The owners were very nice people and we had no problems with the whole stay from beginning to the end.
We stayed with our two year old daughter in mid September. Alberto provided perfect service and was very helpful. The location to amazing beach and views were stunning. Unfortunately the bus timetable had just changed to off season when we were there so usual hourly service to Olbia was three times a day. I'd recommend hiring a car if like us you go off peak. Beyond that a very perfect stay : the ultimately place to switch off from busy life and soak in the beautiful Sardinian sun and sea.
I would definitely recommend this apartment if you are looking to holiday in Sardinia. Alberto gave an outstanding service communicating via Email from the date we booked online up until are arrival. The apartment come fully equipped with cooking equipment etc and Alberto kindly showed us around and answering any questions or queries we had.
The view from the apartment is absolutely stunning, the pictures do not do this justice. I would strongly recommend hiring a car even though the apartment is only a 10 minute drive from the airport. However, this gives you the freedom to drive to shops, restaurants and explore some of the island. The apartment comes with a private parking space out the front. It's located in a peaceful area with some noise coming from a local resort but this generally stopped before 11pm. The local beach is only a ten minute walk from the apartment and is a beautiful beach with golden sand and crystal clear waters. Nearby is also some quiet beaches if you fancy a romantic evening stroll with the beach to yourself.
Me and my partner would not hesitate to use this apartment again as we had a fantastic time with a trusted owner.
We had a brilliant time in this Porto Istana apartment. It had everything we needed, including a comfy bed and well kitted out kitchen, and the views are every bit as incredible as the photos. Alberto was an excellent host, kindly picking us up at the airport (and taking us to the supermarket!) and dropping us back off there, and was on hand for any questions we had about the area. There was a lovely bar and restaurant nearby, and the beach and its cafe were lovely. We would certainly recommend this apartment and would happily go back!
