“Misleading Description”
Reviewed 23 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We stayed here for a week in August with our four children who enjoyed using the facilities, particularly the games room. However, we do have a few observations you may want to take into account before booking here.

Our first question to the agent prior to rental was, privacy, is the villa overlooked? The reply was a definite No, it is not overlooked. This is not correct at all. The 'villa' is directly overlooked by the neighbours large balcony. The neighbours can see straight down onto the pool area, we they did on occasions. The neighbours property is really run down with corrugated steel as windows and have a large Alsatian dog adjacent to the pool that barks often, particularly through the night.

Also, the Villa itself has four large CCTV cameras. Two trained on the Pool and Gym entrance and two in the Play area on the front upper terrace. Why anyone would want to video guests is beyond me. We had no idea where the CCTV was being viewed from or by who.
Also, it must be noted that this is not a sole occupancy villa. We certainly did not pick this up from the information about the Villa until we arrived. The Villa is four story building and the rental is for the two ground floors. The owners live in the upper two floors with their two dogs. There is a connecting door from the owners living area to the rental property living roo owners moving and talking only feet from our door up until 1 am. They did move out after we complained to the agent, but it did take them four days to do so. The upper area play area (where the trampoline and swing is) is located outside the owner's front door on their level.

The advertised 'Magnificent views' of the mountains are indeed magnificent but you also get a magnificent view of a .... huge open cast mining operation directly in front of the property with at least a hundred heavy goods movements a day.

Finally, it must be noted that the Astro turf in the pool area gets very hot in high weather. Our children all got blisters on their toes from walking on it. Both of us adults could not walk bare footed on it.

On a positive note, Maria, the agent for the property, was good and our deposit was returned promptly.
I really don't like leaving a negative review especially here but the agents/owners description and photos of the 'villa' are misleading,
