Nice property, no air conditioning

  • 4 of 5

We had a pleasant stay in this property, with two other families. Altogether we were 6 adults and 8 children and there was plenty of space for us all. The villa is generally well equipped. It is worth noting, however, that the attached flat is not decorated to quite the same specification as the rest of the house.

The property was clean, and cleaners came in halfway through our two week stay. There are a lot of small ants in and around the property, so it does need to be kept very clean to discourage them!

As stated in the property details, there is no air conditioning in the house and there are only two fans, if I remember correctly. For the first week of our stay, the weather was very warm (around 35C every day) and it was a little too warm in the villa some nights.

We were hoping to be able to walk to the local bars/restaurants, based on the property description, but it was about a mile down unlit roads with no pavement, so this was not really possible, especially with our young children.

Nicole was helpful while we were there, responding quickly to requests (including when a doctor was required!) We were disappointed to be charged for fixing the already-old table tennis table out of our security deposit, and also that the €35 that Paypal charged her for receiving the security deposit were also deducted entirely from us.

It's a nice property, but don't go if you need to be really cool at night or have an aversion to ants. Also, discuss the terms of the security deposit before you book!

Owner's Response: Meaning of DAMAGE/SECURITY DEPOSIT: Fix damages made by the guests during their stay. OR Replace broken items The table ténis table was in perfect conditions at arrival day and broken at departure day so.... We could have bought a new one instead but, we decided to fix it (that will not last for long as it was a main arm that was pulled off the table). Old or not, it was not broken and none should be disappointed to pay for their own damages. Regarding Paypal, i just deduct the amount required to fix the damages left, from the amount that i received. When there is no damages and damage deposit is totally refunded, Paypal refund the fees as well. Regarding's nature and we can't do anything. As guest said, if you keep the villa clean there will be no ants around. There are no ants there at the moment and, they are not there all the time. It's not stated anywhere in the property description that bars/restaurants are within walking distance and, we say, that car is recommended. There is also a map....

Gorgeous villa in a beautiful environment!

  • 5 of 5

The photo's on this website are not enough to describe how amazing this villa is! Spacious, clean on the arrival date and everything you may need is there. Nicole, the owner of the villa, is so kind and helpfull. She arranged the transport towards the city for our group, showed us the city and she even wen't shopping with us on the first day! She is always available to give her a call when you wan't to ask something. Nicole, thank you very much! Our group had an amazing week in your beautiful villa!

Perfect accommodation for large groups. Large living areas. Owner very helpful, with transportation to and from the airport, transportation to the store. Nice!

We have had a great holiday and hope to return.

We were 14 adults who have been playing golf, the owner took care of even transportation to and from the golf courses.

Good standard of the house, all the necessary things are.

a great villa to stay at.

  • 5 of 5

we stayed in the house with a family of 13 people including 2 babies and 4 kids. there is more than enough room inside and outside the house.everything was clean incl. the swimming pool.

midweek the bathrooms were cleaned incl replacement of towels.

we strongly recommend to have a car available to go for shopping, to the sea or to visit other places

we certainly will consider to come back wit the family.
