The location of Santa Susanna was interesting; the town was quiet and the beach was excellent. The live music was welcomed in the daytime and early evening but went on far too late (into the early hours of the morning) on our first night.
The villa does not have air conditioning so you have to leave all the windows and doors open at night which meant you cannot shut out the noise of the guard dogs in nearby villas or the live music or the mosquitos.
The kitchen needed to be cleaned before it could be used (including washing up crockery, cutlery and pots and pans in the cupboards). The oven was unusable. The floors of the entire villa needed to be washed (we used many buckets of water with disinfectant) and it took 6 of us many hours to do so.
The linen was supplied at an extra cost and was clean but inadequate for a week's stay in hot weather - we washed it ourselves mid week. The washing machine was good however the airing space was inadequate and not enough clothes pegs were provided.
The owner requested that we allow a furniture removal during our stay which was highly inappropriate and so refused.
The barbeque was unusable and dangerous. Some of the wiring was loose and not all the lights worked properly. The pool was good but there were not enough sun loungers for 6 people (and only 3 cushions).
Three sets of keys were left but not all doors were able to be opened and they were difficult to use.
Villa Carla requires significant improvement and refurbishment - it is a shame because it has the potential to be superb but falls well short of this and was therefore disappointing. It is not what we expected for the money and compares badly to other accommodation that we have previously stayed in, in Barcelona and Calella.
We were a group of 9 staying in this house for one week. The villa is as described on the pictures. There are 2 floors, one with a 4-bedroom and a game room and one with 3 double rooms, a large living room and the kitchen. The inside in not very modern.
The outside of the villa is huge. There is a lot of space around. The swimming pool was in good conditions and the water at good temperature.
Noise don't seems to be a problem for the neighbourhood. The location is good if you have a car. I would definitely recommend this villa if you are a group from 7 to 10 people.
