Excellent stay at Villa Kaioa!

Such a lovely and cozy place to relax and unwind! Beautiful space, and amazing view of the water. Just a quick walk to the beach, with lovely hiking trails nearby, and very close to many great places to eat (it is also equipped with a great kitchen to whip up a nice meal yourself). Fabulous deck overlooking the sea, and very clean and well maintained inside. Would highly recommend a stay at the Villa Kaioa!

Absolutely loved our stay at Adelines cottage! Quintessential beach cottage with the perfect amount of charm. Her grandfathers paintings decorate the walls, the sound of the ocean, the beach just a short walk away, along with great organic markets and restaurants. Great covered back porch, fantastic fireplace to warm up with. Perfect location. As an avid traveler for work and play, I rarely go back to locations, as I want to see and experience all I can. Adelines place is somewhere my husband and I definitely want to return to and can see wanting to rent it for longer stays. Adeline is the perfect hostess! Quick response, easy and very accommodating with a totally last minute booking request. She even had fresh flowers and the specialty local cake “Gâteau Basque”; very thoughtful. Great tips on things to do and recommended the local airport, which my husband was able to fly into, that I hadn’t even known about. I was traveling with my dog and couldn’t have asked for a better stay! It was the most I’ve relaxed in a long time and we very much look forward to visiting again soon! Merci beaucoup Adeline!

Fantastic house and location – highly recommended

Great house for our extended family (including young children and grandparents), loved the large garden and decking (with BBQ). Walk to the beach was down steep steps / path (5 mins) which were no problem for the 2 and 5 year olds but something to be aware of. Also, take a note of tide times to ensure that there’s plenty of beach when you get there (tourist office had a leaflet with tide times). 5-10 min walk into the centre of Bidart with small supermarket, bakery, bars and restaurants – slight hill but nothing strenuous. Large hypermarket 5 min drive away (Intermarche). House was well equipped, including dishwasher, washing machine and dryer. Some low beams in the bedrooms (sloped roof) to be avoided! We also really appreciated the tea / coffee / etc and lovely local Basque cake which greeted us – and above and beyond the call of duty, Adeline picked up an initial shop from the Intermarche for us (that we ordered online) so that we had the weekend’s food waiting for us at the house. Very much appreciated gesture. Many thanks to Adeline – we had a wonderful stay.

Great house!

We spent our holidays at Bidart and rented this nice apartment. Everything was exactly like on the pictures described, so we were really happy. It was not a problem to bring our dog, which was really important for us, and anytime we had questions, Adeline helped out very nice and friendly. Having breakfast in the garden and watching the waves was amazing, the garden is great. A few meters next to the garden you find a nice way down to the beach. It took us about five minutes to go there. Same when we went to town, its really close. We can highly recommend this place and will come back for sure.

Adeline was a great host. She was very welcoming by sending a message several days before our arrival to provide a few tips about the house and the neighborhood and offered help. She was also there upon our arrival to show the house as well as provided suggestions about things to do in the area. The house was exactly what the pictures showed and the neighborhood was calm yet very close to the nice boullangeries, restaurant and shopping area. Will definetely plan to go back again.
Thank you Adeline.

Incredible sea views and well located in lovely village

Five minutes after arriving at Villa Kaioa we were sitting on the veranda watching the waves break on the beach below. The location of this converted ceramics workshop is ideal. A path alongside the villa’s garden leads down to the quiet, sandy Erretegia beach, ideal for swimming, surfing and sunbathing, and with its own little restaurant. A five minute walk the other way along a cliff top lane brings you to the centre of Bidart, with its bars and restaurants – we liked the Mahaina and Pizzaria Bidart which boasts a good wine list. Bidart has three beaches and several surf schools where you can get a 2 hour lesson, surf board and wet suit for 35 Euros. The town celebrates its Basque heritage with music, festivals and foodie markets. A short bus or car ride takes you into Biarritz with its grand hotels, busy surfing beach, shopping and handy little airport. Villa Kaioa itself was simply but elegantly furnished with a fully equipped kitchen with fridge freezer, large dining tables both inside and out and a great garden. The beds were comfortable and a cleaner came during our stay. The owner Adeline was lovely, greeting us with a traditional Basque pie and advice on local amenities. If you get the UK/Santander ferry stop at Bilbao en route and see the amazing Frank Gehry designed Guggenheim museum. We found the villa through Holiday Lettings, who were knowledgable and helpful. Loved Bidart, would go back.

“Het huis op de klif” 

Séjour en septembre 2013
Vanaf het eerste moment een grote ‘WOW’ ervaring, de binnenkomst met het uitzicht op de zee, de enorme tuin van waaruit je de golven ziet en hoort aanspoelen op de kust. Het uitzicht op Biarritz. Het paadje direct naast het huis dat je binnen 5 minuten op het strand afzet waar ook nog eens een heel fijn lunchtentje te vinden is. Werk? Stress? Dat ben je hier binnen een uur vergeten. Oh ja, tip om te eten, de italiaan in het dorpje.


We stayed 4 days and it was simply wonderful!
Adeline was a super host (thanks for the gateau basque!), the house very nice and spacious, the neighborhood charming and close to everything.
If we have the opportunity we will come back!

“Perfect place near Biarritz with spectacular sea view”

Séjour en Avril 2013. Warm welcome by Adeline,the owner who even provided a tasty chocolate egg (we arrived the Easter weekend) and fresh flowers to welcome us. Extremely well equipped cosy small house with spectacular view of the sea and of the city of Biarritz in the distance. Nice and quiet neighborhood. Convenient parking . Fireplace would work even better with dried wood logs. The cleaning of the house on Wednesday was included in the price . Nearby beaches for surfing and swimming, good restaurants and just a 10 min drive to Biarritz city center. We shall certainly come again.

Excellent séjour, la vue est exceptionnelle!! Le jardin et la maison sont très agréables. Il y a tout ce qu’il faut dans la maison pour passer un bon moment. Bidart est un village très agréable qui a su garder son authenticité. Nous vous conseillons une escapade à St Jean de Luz et le surf (pour petits et grands) à Hendaye avec l’école Quicksilver de St Jean de Luz.

Idéal pour garder un oeil sur les conditions de surf !

Fabulous relaxing holiday

We had a very enjoyable Jubilee holiday in this small but perfect house. The view is priceless, and the sound of the waves breaking on the beach below is hypnotic. It is only a short walk to a wonderful bakery and a small supermarket, and a little further in the other direction brings you to a selection of restaurants and shops in the town centre. There is plenty to explore in the surrounding areas and a trip across the border to San Sebastian is a must.

Beautiful sea view from peaceful villa in Basque town

We spent a lovely family Christmas at Kaioa. Very well appointed kitchen and beautiful views from the dining table in the living room. Master bedroom suite was very comfortable though the attic rooms were basic. Lots to do in the surrounding area with excellent restaurants for all price ranges. Our favourites were the Cucaracha and the Tantina de la Playa. Both beside beaches where we went for a post lunch walk. Lots to do in the villa too with books, dvds and music beside the very efficient fire. Only criticism was that the logs were too wet to burn but we had some delivered which were dry. Hope to come back.

J’ai été séduite par le charme et la douceur de la Côte basque en hiver, qui permet sans les foules estivales de profiter agréablement de toutes les ressources qu’elle offre. La villa Kaoia est particulièrement bien adaptée à un séjour reposant, et sa situation exceptionnelle devant l’océan lui confère un avantage certain.

A balcony over the Atlantic ocean

My family and I stayed at the Villa Kaioa in June 2010 and it has remained one of our fondest holiday memories. Located on a quiet residential street overlooking the ocean, the house is truly a balcony over the Atlantic ocean, its lawn extending into in a steep slope down to the shore (families with young children: have no fear, this does not represent a danger for kids as the slope is not steep enough to actually fall and is covered with grass and bushes. Despite staying there with a toddler we found no reason to worry). Although not very big, the house is very functional, serene and elegantly decorated in a way that makes the best use of the natural light and amazing views. We truly appreciated the functionality of the kitchen and of the equipments: all you need is there, all kitchen equipment, cooking accessories and tableware are very carefully selected and of high quality and show a great attention to detail.
The street on which the house stands offers a lovely walk towards the village and one can very easily walk to the bakery, newspaper stand and small grocer. And of course you are only a stroll away from the beach at the bottom of the cliff and a short car ride from all the attractions the basque coast offers.

A holiday villa that makes you want to stay on and on and on

Our stay at the villa, that is located a short distance from both the beach and the centre of the village of Bidart was fantastic. The villa offered ample space, it was well equipped for our holiday, with a great verandah overlooking the ocean where we could share our meals, or relax after a long day at the beach that we could access by a path just a couple of meters away. It really made for a memorable holiday in the Southwest of France.

Awesome amenities – close to Spain – ocean view – walk to beach

The house and village were wonderful, clean, and full of character. House had everything our family could want – dishwasher, landry, modern kitchen, internet, large backyard with bbq, parking ect. The ocean view off the backyard was breathtaking. Surfing lessons were literally a 10 minute walk away. Great restaurants within walking distance. Excellent grocery stores close by. Owner was accommodating. Complete with maid services.
