Holiday to remember for all the wrong reasons.......
This property is located close to Phapos Airport. Directions from the airport were fairly straight forward up to a point. The Villa is situated a little further along the road than indicated so we made a few circuits before locating. Some confusion was caused due to the fact that a large inflatable pool ball left outside the accommodation made it look already occupied. Also being after dark with little street lighting the allotted place to retrieve the key wasn't easy to find.
Once inside the Villa the first problem we encountered was that none of the crockery within the cupboards was clean so we had to wash up! The extractor fan and tiles above the cooker hob were caked in grease and the kitchen bin had mouldy food stuck inside the lid.
The next morning in daylight we explored the property finding that almost all of the outside furniture was either broken, falling apart or filthy dirty. The sun beds and cushions in particular weren't fit for purpose. One of the toilet seats was broken too. There had been a significant water leak under the kitchen sink causing the door to rot and smell. All the bathroom ceilings had damp spores and the shower heads scaled up.
We immediately contacted the owner who said he would get maintenance to call in. After a week we hadn't seen anyone and required some clean bed linen so contacted the owner again. Finally the maintenance man arrived on day 9 of our fortnight stay. He fixed the loo seat and photographed the damaged sunbeds....noticing that we were using ordinary garden chairs to sunbathe on I feel he felt sorry for us and brought two 'borrowed ' beds for us to use for the last 4 days. Upon changing the bed sheets we found all the pillows were badly stained.
Another point for concern was the scum mark around the pool which was due to people not showering before and after swimming. The outside shower was absolutely disgusting tho so I can see why people would not even bother. However, we did.
Something more concerning was a little cubby hole area that could easily be accessed by children if the Villa was let to families. This opening has no door and contains old paint pots, gardening and pool chemicals. Highly dangerous.
Last but not least there is no information book within the property. Only TV and Wifi instructions and a list of 'house rules'
The only positive to report is that the property is situated in an extremely quiet location and not too far from the beach, supermarkets and taverns.
