Beyond the Brochure: Insider Tips for Renting a Villa in Ibiza

Embarking on a vacation is exciting and the type of accommodation you choose plays an important role. Booking the right villa is not just about relaxing in style, it’s about elevating your entire holiday experience. Private villas offer an unparalleled level of privacy, exclusivity, comfort and are perfect for families with children, large groups of friends or couples looking for a romantic escape. However, and with so many villa options available on the market, finding the perfect home for the holidays can be a bit overwhelming.

Fear not, as we present the ultimate guide to help you navigate the process and discover the villa that aligns perfectly with your dream vacation. Here’s everything you need to know about booking a private villa holiday in 2024.

Define Your Priorities


Begin by outlining your priorities. Are you seeking a sea-view home, a property near the city center and the trendiest night-clubs or a charming countryside finca surrounded by nature? Identify your desired villa-style and specific amenities that matter most to you and your travel companions and let our villa specialists help you choose the ideal holiday property. We’ll show you a selection of villas that best suit your needs, suggest inspiring locations nearby, and even offer tips on when to book for the best prices.


The location of your holiday home is a key point to have a successful experience. It is important to check the distance from your main interests before choosing one or another villa. Each corner of the island offers a unique flavor, and choosing the right area will inmerse you into the rich tapestry of Ibiza’s landscapes, culture, and lifestyle. Most of our villas near Cala Carbo offer gorgeous views to Es Vedra. Ibiza’s north, San Joseph and Santa Gertrudis areas unwrap gorgeous scenery and laid-back bohemian ambience, while the properties in the area of Es Cubells and Ibiza town are located on a shorter distance from the historic side of Dalt Vila and the most popular restaurants and beach clubs on the island.  

You may as well consider your arrival and departure to the villa and the mode of transport. Don’t think twice – hire a car to feel truly free and to be able to visit every corner of the magnificent island. Keep in mind that you won’t find Uber or Cabify services in Ibiza and you won’t always be able to hail down a cab, especially in high season, so we highly recommend you to hire a car from our trusted collaborator and you’ll find it waiting for you right at the airport parking. 

Size Matters

Selecting the right-sized villa is crucial for a comfortable stay. Whether you’re traveling with a small family or with a large group of friends, ensure the villa’s capacity suits your needs. Check the number of bedrooms and bathrooms to guarantee ample space for everyone and strike a balance between privacy and togetherness. If you’re on a romantic escape, a smaller, more intimate villa might be preferable. For family vacations or group getaways, a larger villa with multiple bedrooms and communal areas or two villas next to each other will ensure everyone has their own space while still enjoying shared moments.

Explore Amenities

What makes a villa truly extraordinary are the features and amenities it offers. From private pools, outdoor barbecue areas, chef services to stunning bathtub views and proximity to local attractions, list the amenities that would enhance your stay and make it unforgettable.

When booking your villa with us,  housekeeping service is included in the price. The discreet, welcoming staff in Harissa Villas offers the kind of service you’d like to take home with you. In addition you’ll get access to our dedicated concierge service that will help out with the planning of leisure activities, boat rentals, restaurant bookings and additional in-villa services that will make your stay even more comfortable.

Popular properties tend to get reserved quickly, especially during peak seasons.
