Guestbook comments from the owner

The amount I received from HomeAway for your stay was £414.12. You were charged £420 plus £40.22 which is HomeAway service fee to renters. Nothing to do with the owner. As clearly explained to you Val had made an error and your booking had to be less one day. I said that for the cleaning fee. Val was upset about the error she made. NOT that I did not want to upset her. We both did look for alternative accommodation for you but there was nothing available at such short notice. Compensation was offered of £50 sterling plus (after discussing the matter with HomeAway) a cheque of £25 which you agreed to as a final settlement and has been cashed. This was a total of £75. None of this was anything to do with me and as I have friends with houses they rent I made several phone calls trying to find alternative accommodation for you. With reference several owners use the same maps and directions and we have had comments of how useful and helpful they are. I also gave you directions over the phone and you said you knew the area and mentioned the old Lounge Bar and you were given step by step directions from there, which you were happy about. A picture of the house was emailed to you along with all other directions. All houses are the same design so you can't miss the Urbanisation. The route was arrowed also the Needle at the roundabout. At no point if you followed the directions you were given correctly there was no mention or show La Mata beach. I do not rent my house very often but after this experience myself and several of my renter fiends are thinking twice of ever doing it again.

Val's error has caused her a lot of upset and she feels very bad that I have had to deal with the comments received.

Excellent Villa but beware of the owner when booking

  • 5 of 5

This was my 1st time using the site to find accommodation for our family holiday. The villa and location was excellent it went beyond our expectation to the point we are seeking to purchase our own place in the same Urbanization.

When I say Owner beware. I called the owner Sheila on 18th August 16, prior to booking and paying for the villa. My holiday was due to start 20th August. Last minute booking I know. She confirmed that 21st to 28th August was avilable, I have written confirmation inc payment in full. 5 hours after this she called and stated that we had to reduce the length of our stay from 7 to 6 nights due to Mike & Val changing their plans and arriving earlier than planned. I had paid £460 for a 7 night stay (£65 per night), she offered to NOT charge me the cleaning fee of 50 euros, i was then told that I had to seek alternative accommodation for our last night. I said wouldn't it be easier for Mike & Val to stay elsewhere being a couple, she said NO and that she can't upset them.

After 48 hours of going through the complaints process on this website, I was left with either using this villa or cancelling our entire holiday as Owners Direct take upto 5 working days to refund the money someone pays. The owner offered me a partial refund of £25, I did ask about the other £40 but was told that was the fee for using Owners Direct/Home Away, which the company said is not a customers issue. Homeaway did ask why the owner did not find us alternative accommodation and pay for it let alone give us the full 1 nights refund.

The info provided to find the villa was awful, the maps were blurred. We know La Mata and Torreiveja so we asked the owner for the name of the road for our sat nav, she didn't even know the name of the road her villa is on. For future renters its off CALLE GOTZONE MORA. This is a 1 way street and its the 3rd side road on your Right. The collapsed wall with a tree is the key. The written directions given with the map work if you are coming back from La Mata beach, not for someone coming from Alicante Airport. The sign for Princess Maria is so small to see from your car even in daylight so trying to find the place in the dark good luck.

Would I rent this villa again prior to me owning 1 in this urb. YES if it had a different owner.You are 10 min drive to beach in 1 direction and 10 min drive another way to all shops and Carrefour.

I gave 5 stars based on the accommodation & location alone.

Merveilleuse maison très bien située. Un régal.

  • 5 of 5

Une maison très très propre et très bien agencée, très fonctionnelle, il ne manque rien. La climatisation dans toutes les pièces. Les lits fait en arrivant et le linge de toilettes à disposition. Des petites attentions de Sheila avant notre arrivée par mail et une fois sur place par des petits détails dans toutes les pièces. Les gardiens très dispo et sympa (on a appelé une fois, ils sont venus aussitôt). La maison est proche de la piscine (rue derrière) avec maitre nageur, David, très sympathique et super professionnel. La mer, playa de la mata à 1km5 et Guardamar à 7kms les plus belles). Le centre ville, à peine 10 minutes en voiture, vivant et agréable, le mercadona (supermarché) en 3 minutes on y est. Carrefour à 5 minutes et super galerie commercial à coté, en aout c'est les soldes !!! Des vacances exceptionnelles avec nos deux enfants, 12 ans et 17 ans 1/2. On repart l'année prochaine.....

Joli séjour à Torrevieja

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un super séjour à Torrevieja , la maison était tout à fait conforme aux descriptions,très propre et bien entretenue.Terrasse agréable et environnement calme.

La piscine était très propre et adaptée aux enfants.

Il y a un couple sur place très gentil et disponible qui s'occupe de vous en cas de besoin.

La mer est à environ 5mn en voiture avec de très belles plages ou les enfants ont pieds longtemps.

Bref , rien à dire à part de conseiller cette location.

La propriétaire, Sheila, est très professionnelle car elle n'oublie rien pour votre séjour et vous envoie tout en temps et en heure, et en plus traduit tout dans votre langue.

Merci pour cet agréable séjour.

e had a great stay to Torrevieja, the house was completely in compliance with the descriptions, very clean and well maintained. Pleasant terrace and quiet environment.

The swimming pool was very clean and adapted to the children.

There is a very kind and available couple which takes care of you if necessary.

The sea is in approximately 5mn by car with very beautiful beaches or the children stand for a long time.

In brief, nothing to tell to part to advise(recommend) this rent.

The owner, Sheila, is very professional because she forgets nothing for your stay and sends to you quite in due course, and it more translated everything in your language.

Thank you for this pleasant stay.

Avant tout je tiens a sou...

  • 5 of 5

Avant tout je tiens a souligner la gentillesse et la patience de la propriétaire Mme Sheila.

En effet elle utilise beaucoup d'énergie et de temps pour vous donner toutes les explications nécessaire et traduit même les textes dans votre langue maternel, en l'occurrence le français pour nous.

Ensuite, a Torrevieja, il y a un couple de personne qui se charge de votre accueil, départ, ils sont même venu nous chercher près d'un centre commercial car notre GPS nous amenait dans une autre urbanisation avec le même nom de rue... Encore merci pour votre gentillesse, votre courtoisie et de vous être déplacé pour nous amener a bon port .

La maison est tout a fait conforme a la description, c'est propre, bien tenu, le matériel est de bonne qualité et c'est joliment décoré.

Il y a les draps de lits pour les 5 lits et des essuies de bain en quantité suffisante.

Il y a la climatisation dans le salon et la chambre adulte et cela nous a été bien agréable en soirée car il fait chaud, très chaud.

Il y a une machine a lessiver privative dans la maison.

Au premier abord la piscine paraît petite pour le nombre d'habitation mais elle est suffisante et le matin a l'ouverture, un plongeon et quelques longueurs vous font débuter la journée avec un peu fraicheur , c'est un pur bonheur.

L'urbanisation est calme et il y fait propre, ce qui n'est pas forcément le cas a certain endroit en dehors de l'urbanisation .

La maison est a 2,5Km du centre ville, mais comme dans la plus part des villes il faut parfois beaucoup chercher avent de trouver une place de parking.

La location est tout a fait conforme au descriptif et c'est confortable et bien tenu.

Encore merci et a une autre fois peut-être.

In first time, I would like to emphasize the kindness and patience of the owner Mis Sheila.

In fact, she uses a lot of energy and time to give you all the necessary explanations and even translated the texts in your mother language, French for us.

Then in Torrevieja, there are a couple who takes care of you from your arrival to your departure, they even picked us up near a shopping center because our GPS took us to another urbanization with the same street name ... Again thank you for your kindness, your courtesy and you be moved to us.

The cottage is like according to the description, it's clean, tidy, good quality material and it is beautifully decorated.

There are bed sheets for 5 beds and bath towels in sufficient quantity.

"La maison se situe dans un quartier calme. Magasins à proximité. Le logement était impeccable: propreté, soin de la literie. L''équipement était parfait: machine à laver, airco, cafetière électrique, grille-pain, salon de jardin. Nous y reviendrons et n''hésiterons pas à le conseiller.

La maison bénéficie d''une très belle terrasse."

Car: recommended

There is a local bus service to the beaches at La Mata and Torrevieja but a car would make it easier to travel around.

A good choice of cafes, restaurants, bars, shops including a supermarket and chemist.

There is a scrap book in the house full of places to visit i.e waterpark which is nearby, zoo many places of interest to both children and adults.
