The family friendly advantages of a villa holiday are many, including access to your own private facilities and the freedom to use them whenever you want. Knowing that the kids can run around happily, independently and safely, without you having to worry about other guests, is a real plus – and one that means parents are certain to have a more relaxed holiday too.
Villa Mako’s owners designed their villa specifically with their two young daughters in mind: there’s plenty of open space for running around, a gate separates the main building from the pool; one of the bedrooms is furnished and decorated in kid-friendly fashion and there’s a cosy TV room with DVDs, toys and a library of children’s books. Families with very young children will need to take care around the unfenced lily ponds at the villa though.
The team of friendly staff at Villa Mako will make children feel as welcome as adults, and having these willing helpers on hand gives guests plenty of flexibility and freedom to do their own exploring beyond the villa grounds (full-time babysitting incurs a small extra cost).
Although equipped kitchens allow you to prepare meals for fussy eaters or babies with ease, staff will happily to do this for you – just talk through your requirements and meal schedules with the villa manager or chef and they will take care of the rest. Burgers in the balé for tea? Poolside pancakes for breakfast? No problem. The chef will customise all meals to suit children’s taste buds.
And don’t worry about packing all that cumbersome kids’ equipment for your stay. Just let us know what you need; anything we don’t have in-house (villa facilities include a baby cot, highchair, children’s board games, books, DVDs and pool toys) we can hire on your behalf (click here to see list of available hire items).
