This villa could have been nice but too many things either not working, dirty, broken or missing. Nearly all the blinds wouldn't open as the mechanisms were broken. One blind collapsed and fell off. The basin plug in the upstairs bathroom wouldn't work meaning the water wouldn't drain away. The bath plug was the opposite and wouldn't hold water! There was only one pool cue for the pool table, which was broken and by the end of the stay was unusable. The carpets were dirty, there were insects constantly crawling all over the kitchen worktops. The safe didn't work, remote controls didn't work ( probably only needed batteries, but wasn't willing to supply these ourselves). The bottom of the pool was dirty on arrival and the pool light didn't work. The pool light was fixed by the management company promptly, but there was no pole to clean the pool and despite asking for this, it was never supplied. The pool wasn't cleaned for the whole time we were there, and by the end of the 2 weeks we couldn't use it due to the green algae that had formed. The pool screen was also ripped in various places, meaning bugs were found in the pool every day. All in all it was a nice house with a great view in a nice area, that was spoiled by the lack of attention to issues in the house. Been to a lot of villas over the years and this was the worst maintained I've seen (and also the dearest).
Very pleased with stay property was exactly as described on the internet very clean and organized. Small issues were addressed right away. Did submit a note of things that were there prior to our arrival. Would definitely recommend property and organization to others. Just one complaint having to leave before 10 am it is not possible to get all linens laundered. Previous stays at other properties all linens had to be placed in a tub.
