Family holiday first time in villa

5 of 5
Had a great stay here at Candy Cane Villa with my family. All the home comforts that you need, clean and welcoming. Swimming pool was fab and family had a great laugh as well as enjoying the BBQ area. Felt safe and secure in villa. Very quiet and peaceful area away from the hustle and bustle. So was really nice to come back to after long days at the parks etc. On chill days we enjoyed the games room playing pool and darts as well as enjoying the board games provided. I would recommend staying in this lovely wee villa. The owners were great to deal with from start to finish and we had no problems what so ever. Thanks again for a pleasant stay. The Armstrong Family from Scotland.

Nice house and pool. Great for 4 people. Might feel a bit cramped for 6.

4 of 5
The house has a well equipped kitchen with plenty of crockery, glasses etc. The living/dining space isn't huge and there isn't much space around the pool. We were a family of 4 and it was a really nice size, but for 6 I think it would feel quite small. The pool is a bit more overlooked than you might think from the photos, but the pool itself is lovely. The guest information book was poor. It had no basic information like the Wi-Fi code, nor did it have any tips or recommendations for local restaurants etc. The information provided on the Owners' Direct portal under the property reference is also poor - eg. it has no directions to the property from the airport; it says you'll find things in the property or guest info book which aren't there (like the Wi-Fi code), gives a contact number that is actually a number for the letting agent's ex-colleague (who didn't have a good word to say about her!) etc. Our own experience of the letting agent was bad - I would say this was the only downside to our holiday. There were some very basic things missing like a plug/stopper for the kitchen sink, a net to take debris out of the swimming pool, and an ironing board. When I asked for these I was told I shouldn't expect everything will be perfect as it is only a $70 a night property! Previous guests had stolen them and if they were replaced, they'd just be stolen again. (who steals a plug/stopper for a kitchen sink when on holiday?) When I pushed, she said she had meetings and was too busy, but I could buy the necessary items in Wal-Mart and she'd pay me back, which I did and then she didn't pay me what I was owed (c.$30 - which she had agreed). She didn't reply to any of my subsequent emails. I notice that the agent replied to a previous review about nails coming through the carpet, to say that the lady should have reported it and she'd have got the handyman to fix it right away - well it still isn't fixed 3 months later! If the owner is reading this, I'd get yourself a new agent, quick - she's lazy and dishonest and doing you no favours!
