We stayed in August. 4 adults and 5 children. Layout of bedrooms was good. Pictures were very accurate. Good service from owner when kettle broke and sunloungers. They were replaced within three hours. The pool area is beautiful and a lovely pool. The children loved it.
Air con is on a €1 meter. This worked fine as it gave us 2 hours so we only used when required. However we didn’t know this before arriving. We were charged €140 for air con that wasn’t required. This was refunded but it meant we didn’t have enough €1 coins for the first night.
Welcome pack was amazing plenty of food and (all important) beer / wine for a couple of days. Great value at €70.
Communication from Catalunya Casas was very good (except the air con issue) and I would think they would rectify any problem quickly.
Amazing pool with sun all day and a nice outlook.
Nice outdoor BBQ.
Different places to eat - pool side, shady balcony overlooking pool for brekky,
Shady front garden dining table for evening meals. Indoor dining table.
Only 45 mins from Barcelona airport.
Some lovely beaches. Closest about 10 mins but gorgeous places within 30 mins.
Owners seem happy to ensure the stay is as good as it can be. (Prompt response and helpful)
Price we paid seemed very reasonable for August.
Great for families. There is the pool + a little park with trampoline and swings that we didn’t notice till day three as it looked like it was next door but was actually part of the villa’s own garden.
How to make it better.
Some bigger glasses in kitchen.
Pool lights only from 10-12. And fiddly to work out how to operate.
Rocalisa itself is a little soulless. There are no bars or restaurants in walking distance. To go out you need to drive.
Ants an issue so you will need to ensure you don’t leave out food. (This is usual in Spain)
Overall we were very pleased with the rental and felt it was well represented in the adverts. Would book again if we were coming to this part of Spain.
This house was perfect for two families (9 persons). Nice house with beautiful garden and pool (big plus for an outdoor shower). Location is not central, so a car is needed. Only basic utensils for cooking but a very nice barbeque area!
Situated in quiet area but only 10 minutes drive from Calafell beaches and trainstation ( 1 hour to Barcelona, lot of parking spaces around the station). Very nice villages and towns in short distance drive. Catalunyan casas had excellent customer service and a usefull manual for the house. Easy to contact and quick responses. All our special needs were met quickly. I would recommend this to families!
We had this house for 5 days in june. 6 adults and 3 children under 4. The pool was great and we cooked most nights using the outdoor kitchen. Lots of different areas to relax and eat together. Wonderful.
