A really lovely villa that had everything we needed for a holiday and family reunion. The rear pool and patio face west, giving gorgeous sunset views and overlooking a tidal canal junction with lots of water birds and, we were told, occasional dolphin and manatee visits. There is a private beach 15 mins walk or 5 mins drive away, perfect soft sand and even better sunsets. However, the owners do not live locally and it is evident that they don't visit often. Some of the furniture and outside chairs are slightly shabby, the house was superficially clean but kitchen cupboards, drawers and worktops needed a wipe down. Many of the pots and cutlery were grubby too apart from the top few, and 2 cups were broken. There was also a broken toilet seat. The previous tenants had been a group of boys apparently. We also found glass splinters and old fishing line by the pool, all of which must have been difficult for a cleaner to spot. We had problems with light bulbs as quite a few were blown or missing. We replaced some before we realised the numbers needed. There was some ceiling damage on the outside pool deck that the owner rang to apologise for and had lined up someone to fix while we were there. Our first contact with the owner after booking the villa was to ask what kind of internet connection they had as the villa description had said 'dial up'. The answer was that they hadn't realised it was in the description, and there was no internet installed. They said that they would have it in place before we arrived, and it was! We had a superb high speed Wi-Fi connection. This was typical of the very responsive owners. A handyman was sent round to replace some light bulbs, and the toilet seat and kitchen cooker light bulb were replaced before we left. Unfortunately, the ceiling damage proved to be a roof/solar panel problem and would need much more work. The solar panel, used to warm up the pool, was fixed sufficiently to be used while we were in the villa, but we only managed to get in the pool for the last few days (it had been an unusually cool Winter); and we didn't see a pool cleaner in the 4 weeks we were there, despite the owners having a weekly cleaning contract in place. The owners gave us a restaurant meal gift card to apologise for the problems we had. It was a kind gesture much appreciated. Would we return? Perhaps, if the roof and solar heating problems are resolved. It really is a lovely villa with lots of vacation potential.
