“Uncomfortable, porch infested with mice but great views and location”
Reviewed 13 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

people found this review helpful

On the positive side I would like to mention that the villa has magnificent views over the bay and the garden is extremely nice with plenty of flowers, lemon trees and lime trees. It is walking distance (10 minutes) from a gorgeous beach (Tamaricciu) which gets very busy in high season.
The apartment is very basic, most of the furniture is very old. The bed we slept in was awful, noisy and extremely uncomfortable, both my wife and I were waking up in the morning with strong pain in our backs. The walls, the tiles, the wardrobes, the linen everything is really worn out and in need of renovation/replacement.
The description of the amenities on tripadvisor is correct and there is no over-promising.
Once we got there we realized we should have checked better: no washing machine for a stay of two weeks (especially with kids) is a bit of an issue. There is no air conditioning (and we knew it) but we thought there would be at least some fans, nothing. We had to buy one as at night the temperature was still around 28 degrees and it was impossible to sleep.Of course no telephone, no internet no wifi.
And then the mice problem....... we realize that in the countryside it can happen to see a mouse here and there. The problem here is different, the veranda/porch was infested and we could see 4-5 mice at the same time getting very close to us as we were eating. We had to put some traps and poison and we found 5 mice dead within 2 days (we took pictures that I choose not to publish on Tripadvisor). This place needs serious anti-mice long term treatment, traps will keep new mice from coming only for some days/weeks.
Net net, the great views and the garden cannot compensate for the low level of comfort/facilities and for the mouse issue, we will for sure not go back.

Dear guest,

thank you for your observation.
We are glad to know you enjoyed the beautiful garden and views. Your observations have been duly noted. The noise is caused by the slatted frame on which the mattress is resting. We will replace it with new ones. The matrasses of the bed are of high quality and two years old.

The living room with adjoining kitchen, corridor and staircase were recently painted in bright colors. The bedrooms are kept in bright original plaster and are not worn. The same applies to the built-in wardrobes.

All guests are informed that there is no washing machine available and they are referred to a self laundry next door to one of the major supermarkets.
It is also correct that there is no air conditioning. Usually the temperatures during the night are not so high as they were at that time, when an exceptional heat wave swept through large parts of Europe.

It also is correct, that there is no telephone or Wifi. Most guests do not require this during vacation. Especially guests with children gave us the feedback that they appreciate Wifi free holidays keeping their kids from spending too much time on playing electronic games.
If they need it they use the mobile phone and book per day or per week internet from by their telecom companies or check Emails etc. using other public Wifi hotspots.

Regarding the mice problem we are sorry that we were not given the opportunity to deal with this problem while you were staying with us. This problem was not existing until end of May and not reported from the people which were there in June. Rarely we had to engage a mouse-catcher, especially when guests left food outside at the terrasse.


We are always more than pleased to assist with extra requests and to solve any issues when they are brought to our attention.
We hope this assures you of our commitment to providing a comfortable and relaxing stay in this beautiful nature.

Kindest regards
Gottfried Reithmaier
