Arrived to unswept floors and filthy patio and a couple of giant cockroaches on the kitchen floor which ran behind the washing machine. The place was empty of any essentials. We had to go and buy toilet roll, kitchen cloths and sponges, washing up liquid, toilet bleach, hand soap...the list goes on. Yes, you read that right, there was half a toilet roll on hand for my two week stay. I felt blessed there was even that left after looking around. Not even a bottle of water greeted my wife and I and our 7 month old baby as we arrived as scheduled at 10.30pm. It was like walking into a vacant possession, not a holiday home. First job was sweeping the patio outside and mopping the floor.
The kitchen lacks basic essentials such as a pyrex dish to cook in, scissors that aren't rusty, a decent cutting knife (there is a solitary little sharp knife), the crockery is a mishmash of second hand stuff and the pans are about 50 years old.
The bed is very uncomfortable, the pillows unusable - in fact I chucked two of them in the dumpster they were so misshapen. We ended up putting pillow slips on the two sofa cushions and using those instead.
The iron will leak water all over your clothes, no matter what setting you try.
I tried the television on our second to last day - that doesn't work either.
Some bloke will be spying on you constantly and hanging out of his window next door to make unwanted remarks - as he never introduced himself I have no idea who he is or why he seems to feel he has some sort of claim on the property.
There is not much more to add. We have been to Paphos twice before and this is the worst place we have rented. I presume somebody is being paid to look after the place and prepare it for guests. I suggest the owner looks into finding a new person to do this, as the location is good and the pool is very nice. It would not take much to sort the place out, but I am afraid it is not up to scratch right now.
I am sorry to hear that you had a bad experience and I would have prefered if you had spoken to my house reps directly and straight away and they would have sorted any problems you would have had - I did provide the number for the house reps and of course you had my number as well.
I have spoken with my house rep to understand what had happened. The house was cleaned the day before you arrived and all patio areas were cleaned and household essentials placed in the kitchen and bathroom areas. The photos on the website depict a picture that is not of a vacant possession so I am unsure I understand that comment.
Cockroaches come and go as a part of life in this country and so I am afraid I cannot do anything to alleviate that.
I have stated on the website that any food essentials required from guests before they arrive can be ordered and they will be there the day you arrive but maybe water could have been placed without asking and I will look into that.
All kitchen utensils are cleaned and checked before guests arrive to make sure everything is there and if something needs replacing my house reps always contact me first before they go out to purchase any new items that need replacing so I am aware of what is there.
I have never had any complaints on beds and bedding and the pillows were new and big but they may not have been to your liking but I have to maintain a décor to suit all.
My house rep did speak with you about one of the mattresses being used as a play mat for your child in the patio area and I am sorry that you took this comment wrongly and did not appreciate them speaking to you on it. But as they stated the mattress is for sleeping on and that as a result the mattress had to be cleaned as there was nothing underneath it protecting it.
After the clean from your departure, the house reps had to do a double clean as to the state of how the property was left and that everything had been taken out and used and also in the bedrooms the furniture had been moved around to various places. My house reps were very taken aback with the comments that were posted and I know they always do a professional job.
I am still confused as to why it had taken you this long to make any comments on your stay and believe so it was only until I kept asking for your comments that you eventually replied some 8 weeks after.
I have since your stay and before had many guests staying who have been very happy with everything in the house and around it.
Apologises again to you.
Lovely house. Only had 1 problem with kettle not working but this was replaced same day. Great having someone on site to contact.
Loved the balcony off the main bedroom overlooking the pool.
Clean comfortable accommodation. Would stay there again.
Fantastic & Peaceful!
Perfect location, quiet surroundings but very close to the main harbour in Paphos. The pool was very well maintained. The house was clean and had everything we needed. I couldnt fault it at all! We want to come back next year!
Fantastic holiday and villa
We had a fantastic time in Paphos and the villa and location are great. Jas was really helpful sorted out a taxi for us which I highly recommend. The villa complex was fabulous with a wonderful pool area. It takes about 10 mins to walk into the harbour area or a few minutes to the nearest restaurants which makes the location perfect we are already looking at going back next year. If you book this villa you won't be disappointed.
We spent a wonderful week in Paphos. Jas was really helpfull and the house is great! There is everything you need. You wake up by the swimmingpool and barely have 10 minutes walk to the center of Paphos. Great Time !
