Born in Argentina, I have spent the last 17 years in Madrid and Ibiza.
I have a soul traveler!!!
We used Air B’n’B to book this house through Maria in September
The villa as a whole is accurately depicted by the pictures available. The beds were comfortable. The aircon was good.
We did have some issues though. First of all the issue of being charged for cleaning when the house wasn’t clean. The floor was extremely dirty (we ended up with black feet) and there were a lot of ants in the kitchen and living areas (we took out garbage to the bin up the road daily and tried to be as clean as possible but it made little difference).
The internet only work for 2 days out of the week that we were there. Being that we had international SIM cards we were relying on this as our main source of communication.
But the worst part was that we did not have hot water. So on the second day we called Maria and she said that she would get it fixed. The next day a technician turned up and looked at the system. He told us to run the water for 5-10 minutes and it would get hot. He then left. We tried it that night, one person had a warm shower and then that was it - no hot water. The next day another man came and looked at it. He spoke a little bit of English – and then we seemed to get luke warm water, which was a big improvement but it was good for 2 people to have a shower then reverted back to cold. 4 out of 6 of us still had to shower in the cold.
On the second last day Maria turned up again to discuss giving our bond back and we complained about the water, internet and ants. She told us it was out fault for not contacting her more (perhaps if we had INTERNET as promised we could have). She then called us liars and told us that she did not care what we said because the villas are booked up for next year and that we did not really have any recourse. She was very very hostile and really could not have been less helpful if she had tried. All she had to do was say sorry but that was just too much for her. Being angry and rude was all she could manage.
Finally after check out she sent me an extremely rude email, she had to have the last word.
If you are happy with an unclean house that is hard to find, ants, no internet, no hot water and a rude host then this is the place for you.
Maria was a fantastic host, The house was great just like the photos, Maria was very kind and even took us to the local shop to collect some food supplies. The house was clean and lots of fresh towels and linen. Very simple but stylish decor. Only downside was the road to the house and garden (lower part) was unlit and extreamly dark at night and you need a torch to get home. We couldn't find a kettle? so had to microwave water for tea. The pool is beautiful and quiet but rather a long way from the house. We would recommend the house and Maria to friends in the future.
Il soggiorno è stato ottimo. La casa era veramente bella, ottima posizione, nuovissima, molto pulita e con tutti i servizi descritti. Maria è una persona molto gentile e carina, sempre disponibile e simpaticissima. Consiglio vivamente questa casa e credo che il prossimo anno tornerò sicuramente.
We spent our holidays in Marias beautiful house.
Everything was great and Maria was helpful and absolutely reliable.
