I'm sorry I can't give this rental 5 stars. I rarely leave a review with anything negative simply because I take a lot of care when picking a place to stay based on others' reviews. First of all, the great things which have been said about this rental in previous reviews are true. Great accommodation in a great location and a lovely quiet pool area and excellent WiFi and possibly the best TV choice of British and international channels including Sky that we've ever enjoyed. Our first gripe was that although it is listed in the advert there was in fact no microwave oven and with a small baby to heat food for this proved inconvenient throughout our stay, never mind for everybody else. We reported this on the first day but it was never mentioned again by the local rep. Also the kitchen seemed to be infested with ants from behind the electrical conduit that runs behind the counter top. In the literature with the rental it seems that guests will be blamed for the presence of insects which they explain is caused by anyone leaving food out! I'm sure that's true but I'm also sure the insects must be there in the first place. Other small things which prevent me from giving more than 4 stars is the fact that we could not find a key to fit one of the bedroom doors on to the balcony which meant the family members could not use it without going through another bedroom. Also the downstairs bedroom does not have air conditioning though plenty of fans were provided in the rooms. Also I have never been in a rental before where the air conditioning is controlled by a preset timer which you cannot change.
This house has it all. Spotlessly clean with cool marble floors & air conditioning. Great for the hot days. The pool was so convenient at the bottom of the garden. Hardly used by others. The gardens are well maintained but must warn you of insect bites. We assume they came from the grass. The house facilities were great but found the kitchen could be designed to get better usage. Not much work surface for such a large place. Saying that plenty of utensils & crockery. The walk to Peurto Banus is a good 25 mins but there is a bus that can take you in for €1.20. A taxi is €5-6. Well worth it in 30 degree heat. There is a well stocked supermarket within a 5 min walk. Lovely fresh fish section & found the prices of most things cheaper than in the U.K. Had a few BBQs. We all had such a great time at this property & would definitely stay there again. Simon the property manager was always on hand to help make our stay even better with a couple of requests. He came up trumps on both. We also did our airport transfers through him. Made life easier for a few extra euros. You cannot fail to enjoy your holiday at this property.
We have just spent a wonderful week here and would definitely recommend. The house was everything we had hoped it would be and we pretty much had the pool to ourselves for a week. The location is fairly central and it makes a great base. Simon took care of everything for us and we also arranged our airport transfers via him which I would also recommend.
First impressions were great and continued throughout our stay.Lovely property, nice and clean and well situated. Within a 20 min walk to the centre and close to super markets. It has everything you need for a holiday rental. Highly recommend.
