COCKROACHES

  • 1 of 5
In answer to the comment, We where in fact offered alternative accommodation, I can assure you that they where not upgraded, one was almost impossible to enter as we had a disabled person with us, the second was way out and again the stairs where impossible to come down again for the disabled sister with us and as for the 3rd, well what can I say BUNK BEDS for 4 adults, and the out look was in fact Dustbins that where over flowing. So do not see how these where upgraded, we had no other alternative but to come home in the hope that some monies where refunded to us, I am pleased to say one week hire was but that did not cover the airfares home, Beware of this property

COCKROACHES

  • 1 of 5
Cockroaches : Had to cut short our holiday due to the vast amount of Cockroaches roaming around inside of the property without the ones we saw on a daily basis right outside the bedroom doors that lead onto the balcony, and around the swimming pool. The lower floor was uninhabitable. No doors or windows could be open. The manager gave us some lame excuse as to why, but this problem was reported in the visitors book in September 2012 and obviously had been ignored. The owner lives in this property and I cannot believe for one minute that he wasn't aware, also the cleaner that goes in. The only good thing I can say is : Lovely Views and Location but that is it.

Owner's Response: We are not sure about the intentions of our client who wrote this review about the cockroaches. Yes, there was a problem when the client stayed in the house. It was because of an unprofessionally installed siffon in the basement kitchen through which the insects got access. The client was offered alternative, upgraded accommodation which she didn't want so she was reimbursed with more then the full amount of the remaining rental period.
Off course the problem was then solved completely directly after departure, there have been no more cockroaches in the house ever since. Three more parties have spent great holidays in the house since!!
Also the statement that the problem had been ongoing since September 2012 is not adequate. Somebody may have seen one or two back then but this is southern Europe and one can expect this occasionally. However, no way will anyone stay permanently in a house that would be infested as much as the review suggests. It is actually rather an insult to the owner, who is a very sympathetic person, always keen to please his customers. As a matter of fact the whole problem occurred only because of yet another attempt by the owner to improve the house putting a new kitchen into the basement, in the middle of the season.
We are sorry the clients who wrote the review were not satisfied with their holiday but we did everything to compensate them. Also before the problem with the cockroaches occurred we had already treated them very generously when they wrecked a brand new rental car by own fault.
We feel that this review is out of proportion and unfair to us and to the owner!

The more energetic of you may like to try the diving and water sports centre in Almyrida. If you are looking for a modern, comfortable house with wonderful views conveniently close to the traditional village square and the beach, Villa Hibiscus is perfect for both families or couples.
