Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi there



We have just returned home after our two week holiday and wanted to say a big thank you for letting us rent your fabulous apartment. We have had a wonderful time and the aprtment was certainly the best we have stayed in. We found it to be well equiped with everything we needed and more. The view from the balcony was amazing and we're missing it already! Lance enjoyed windsurfing at the Reni Egli Centre and our daughter had fun learning too. We are so glad we hired a car so thank you for your advice! Coata Calma and Morro Jable were lovely but we enjoyed returning to our 'home from home'.



Just to let you know, when we first used the oven there was a very strong smell and some smoke. I gave it a good clean and removed two very blackened discs (probably only some burnt food) from the bottom of the oven. Anyway, it seemed fine and we used it afterwards.



Thank you once again. We would love to use the apartment again next year (providing we are in a position to) and wondered when you start booking and what the price will be?



Many thanks again.



Regards



Lance and Ali Mepsted

Beautiful view but improvements need to be made inside property

  • 2 of 5

On arrival entry was easy but on entering the apartment it was clear instantly that it was not clean in places. Floor was not clean. Beds need replacing (we could feel the springs poking through) and the linen was old, torn and not clean. We did attempt to make contact with the management team for the first 2 days without success so I had to contact the owners and explained my disappointment with a number of things. He seemed completely disinterested. I got the impression that he had his money off us and didn't care thereafter. He got extra glasses as their were only 2 for 6 people on arrival and egg cups of which their weren't any initially. All of our other complaints were completely ignored. The view is beautiful yes but I wasn't planning on paying just for this. We will not be returning to this apartment although we love Costa Calma. The 2 star review is purely for the amazing view and area not for the apartment.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We are disappointed to hear that the apartment was not clean as our management team provide a very high standard of maintenance and the cleanliness is kept at a very good standard. However we have passed your complaint on to them as it is very important to us that this apartment is kept to a high standard of cleanliness. We are surprised that the linen was not clean or in good condition as we replace linen on a regular basis. When you contacted us two days after arrival you should have told us this and we would have drawn managements attention to the above. We addressed all the issues that you raised and got the items that you requested. As we do not charge a damage deposit we depend on the honesty of our clients to replace items they break. Obviously this was not done in this case. As you agreed it was unrealistic to replace a mattress when you were only staying for a week. What complaints did we not address? We are surprised at your comments as we have constantly repeat guests who comment on how comfortable the apartment is. Tonight we have received a request from a returning guest who said the following: "Would look forward to another nice stay at your apartment if the dates are ok. Looks like I'm becoming a regular. It just suits me perfectly. So comfortable." We are glad you enjoyed the panoramic views and of course the excellent value for money at just over €9 per person per night for a group of 6 persons. . As it was a last minute booking you got a special deal This is a comfortable modern apartment and we believe we offer excellent value for money.

magnificent view, but need a car for everething!

  • 4 of 5

Perfect for those who want peace. High-altitude, so need a car for every trip. Bathroom with large sink and a nice shower with hot water. A narrow bed with mattress of lesser quality. You can feel the springs. Kitchen cabinets were not clean. We did not use them, because eating out was very nice and not expensive. Breakfast on the (narrow) patio was nice. Large fridge and freezer. No kitchen towel found. The complex is desolate. 80 percent of the apartments are empty. The pool and terraces are well maintained though. Achieve bakery and grocery store by car within 5 minutes. Good restaurants found in Costa Calma. The beaches are blissful. Playa Esmeralda beach has possibly paying service with sunbeds and umbrella. These are also used by naturists, everyone does what he or she prefers. Windsurfers and kiteboarders can head to the nearby beach sotavento.

We had a great holiday, partly because we do not like crowds.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to review our apartment and we are glad that you enjoyed your holiday. Yes as we say on our site it is essential to have a car. In addition it will give guests the freedom to explore this beautiful island. We have a standard double bed in the master room and in addition we have 3 Foot single bed in the room. In the other room we have two single 3 foot beds. All beds are standard size. We use medium mattresses as we find that this suits most people best. Some people find hard mattresses too difficult to sleep on. Thank you for drawing our attention to the fact that the cupboards needed cleaning. We have drawn our management teams attention to this and also to the fact that there was no kitchen towel available. Sometime it can be quite on the complex, however the last time we were there it was very busy and we much prefer it when we can have a choice of sunbeds to choose from.

Apartment with agreat view

  • 4 of 5

The Apartment is lovely with great views. Because it is located outside the town centre, it is very quiet, which is lovely in the evening. The kids enjoyed the pool and the proximity to the seaside, so they could venture off independently.

I had a nasty fall at Paradaiso (my own fault) but the security guard was ever so helpful which was a great relief. So, you feel very secure there and are definitely good taken care of.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind comments. Like yourself Our guests always remark upon the magnificent views from our apartment because of Its unique location. You are almost guaranteed a good nights rest due to the quietness of the complex at night. Its proximity to the beach is a major plus while you also have the choice of using the pool. We are very sorry that you suffered a nasty fall however are reassured that the manager took good care of you. Eileen & Feargus

Full optional

L'appartamento ha davvero una vista mozzafiato sul paese di Costa Calma e Playa Esmeralda.

E' molto vicino a Playa Sotavento perfetta per chi pratica sport acquatici e abbastanza comodo per andare a Morro Jable, dove la spiaggia è più adatta a famiglie con bambini e ci sono più possibilità per svagarsi la sera.

E' dotato di tutti i comfort (mancano solo lavastoviglie e wifi), in buono stato e abbastanza pulito.

Lo consiglierei agli appassionati di sport acquatici.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind comments. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay at the apartment. Yes it has wonderful views. We really enjoy waking up in the morning and seeing the sun rising out the bedroom window. It is spectacular. We actually use the beach below the apartment a lot. It is really good for swimming and there is a lovely walk along it. Our family enjoy swimming a lot and so use it very regularly. We get a lot of windsurfers because of the apartments close proximity to Rene Egli We are glad that you found it comfortable as we aim to provide a 'home from home' for our guests. We appreciate your feed back.

Si fuese por las vistas ¡¡¡¡ un chofff

  • 2 of 5

Estuvimos alojados 5 días, no pudimos estar la semana completa que habíamos pagado….

Al entrar en el apartamento ya notamos un olor a grasa y rancio que lo impregnaba todo, todo. (ver techo habitación)

Para resumir, nada más entrar tuvimos que limpiar, quitando algo más que un poco de polvo, la cocina y el baño estaban bastante bien, el microondas estaba muy limpio y el baño también, el problema está en los pequeños detalles…

De wifi, nada, es una coña, resulta que solo funciona en la piscina y en el balcón, (mentira) “de coña”. Yo no lo ofertaría, ya que no funciona.

Nos dejaron un juego de sabanas dos toallas de mano y dos de 100 x 40 cm, para ducharnos toda una semana dos personas. Insuficiente¡¡ De las mantas y los armarios, omitimos comentario¡¡

La tv, no se ve, solo se pueden intuir 4 canales extranjeros de satélite, tuvimos que comprar nosotros mismos un aparato receptor de TDT para poder ver algo de tele.

El hervidor de agua y la máquina de café que hay en la cocina, les aconsejaría que los revisasen, puede que de allí salga una nueva especie. También les recomiendo que se tomen un rico café con sabor a cualquier cosa menos café.

En la máquina de tortura, al que se puede llamar sofá por el parecido en su morfología, apesta a sudor y a falta de limpieza, aparenta muy bonito y cómodo en las fotos, pero la realidad no es tal.

La situación es privilegiada, pero hace falta el coche para todo y el acceso es algo deficiente.

l apartamento tiene buenas vistas, lo demás es un choff.
