Good but can easily be improved!

In general the apartment is very elegant, spacious and pleasant. The balcony is wonderful and we used it every day for eating and relaxing outside. The kitchen was well equipped and on the whole our stay was comfortable.
However, there were a few things which were not working as they should and should have been fixed beforehand. If you mention a Jacuzzi bath in your site, then it should work properly! In fact, it worked very poorly; the water current was very weak. The water hose in the Jacuzzi was also too short and made the experience of taking a simple shower as a substitute (since the Jacuzzi was performing so poorly) very bizarre: You have to take a shower sitting down in the tub. We are grown-ups, all of us over 60 years of age.
The other bathroom: In the shower, once you are inside the cubicle, there is no place to put the soap and the sponge (or whatever you are using) – you must bend down to the floor.
The living room: The sofa was very uncomfortable!
You did say there was a problem with electricity and warned us against using many appliances simultaneously. But other than that we found that many of the electric sockets did not work. Some of the electricity switches were non-existent (although we could see them hiding deep inside the sockets). Our bedroom was therefore very dark - the ceiling light did not work, one bedside lamp did not work, and the other one had a dark lampshade. Reading in bed was impossible.
It was also not very pleasant to use a single set of towels per person for 7 days. I am sure that if asked beforehand, we would be willing to pay for a change of towels.
We also could have enjoyed a more thorough explanation (even in writing) for the use of the public transportation, other that the one given quickly upon our arrival, and avoid making all the possible mistakes during the first days. We haven't seen the owners, who did seem very nice people, except for the time of our arrival which was at 4:00 in the morning.
Never-the-less, the location was good, the neighborhood very pleasant with restaurants and cafes and shops, and we had a great time - but it could have been OUTSTANDING!
