First the positives:
Great location. Oxford Street was a 5 minute walk away as were great restaurants. Nice clean building which felt secure. Quiet street. Apartment is nice and spacious and the sofa bed is very comfortable. Andre is responsive and answers messages promptly.
The bathroom is in dire need of a massive renovation. Every time one sat on the toilet seat the back fell on the back. Similar problem with the shower which did not suspend from the wall and would fall on the back. I will need a chiropractor after this stay!
There is a wooden cabinet in the shower which is filthy and decrepit. Overall this bathroom is totally unacceptable. When I re-reviewed the previous comments I found that there have been multiple complaints regarding this same issue and it is real shame that they have not been addressed. What exactly is the owner waiting for?
There was no toilet paper when we first entered and had to run to the store to get some. The heating is weak and we had to wear sweaters and socks all the time.
Did not feel that we got we paid for.
This is a nice flat, really well situated and convenient. The bed is totally comfortable - good quality! Hosts are really friendly and accommodating. Everything was perfect during my two-week stay and I recommend the place.
We are family of 4 adults and 2 children (4 and 1 years old ),spent in the house 10 days. The house is spacious. There is a really large area around it. Sea view is beautiful. There is complete privacy. This is what we value. Andre is friendly host. He was always in touch if
we had any problems.
Unfortunately, we were called host too often for the time that I want to devote entirely to rest, rather than discussing the issues.
Each day of our stay we experienced the unpleasant moments.
First, the water pressure was decreasing constantly in the house.Every day there were periods about 15-30 minutes when we could not use the water. Once the whole evening until the morning of the next day we had no water at all. Andre said that it is because we used a lot of water earlier , so it finished. We believe the problem is the unstable electricity. That made the operation of the pumps not well. This confirms the fact that sometimes the electricity was off in the house after using the dryer, when we used microwave, when the washing machine starts to work. Once from morning till evening we had no light in whole house.
Second, we were unpleasantly surprised that the downstairs to the sea is actually not safe for children and the elderly. I mean it is dangerous. It is normal just for young people. The photo shows a small section of the descent, the most acceptable. But it's not the whole path. We went down with children only once. Then we drives to another great beach. I think the beach downstairs is not really suitable for small children. The beach is not sand. There is at once deeply .
Three, from the base road the way to the house is reached by a long dirt road. It is very rough, it shakes so that mama mia!!. We felt very uncomfortable using this «road».
And last, air conditioning worked only in two rooms of five. One of the two worked good, the other worked poorly, as it was not modern. In other rooms it was very uncomfortable to sleep. Because it was really stuffy. It was no some air. If we could sleep with the open windows, it would be ok. But it was impossible to open window because of the mosquitoes and lizards and others. There are no any nets for windows where they are. And some rooms have no windows at all, just sliding doors.
This is not a modern Villa in nature, it is a simple village house with large area around. The majority of this space is not soft green grass. There is sun-scorched land with cactus and thorns there. It is suitable for unassuming young company, but not for small children and old people.
It is a pity that the owner had not warned in advance about all these circumstances.
Siamo stati un mese a casa di Andre . La casa è perfetta vicina a tutto : metro , oxford street , supermercato, regent's street ecc.. L'appartamento è davvero confortevole , nessun rumore e ottimo vicinato.
Il proprietario è disponibile a ogni richiesta ed è facile mettersi in contatto con lui. Sicuramente se torneremo a Londra verremo di nuovo qui . Davvero splendido. Grazie
We had amazing two weeks at this property, which has superb views! Our kids had a lot of fun feeding the donkeys and the horse. Andre is a wonderful host, always available and dealing with all of our requests prior and during our stay.
We had a great week in André s home. The House is very nice, the sea view is spectacular, the beach below the House very nice, Luna & Sole are great friends for kids:-) If you are looking for relaxing holidays by the sea...that´s the place! André is also a great host, always very responsive for any request you may have! Thank you
The flat is spacious and with a good lay out. It needs some work in the bathroom, the toilet seat does not stay up (very annoying). The shower needs to be refurbished.
We did not use the kitchen for cocking (lots of options to eat out or take away), but looked well fitted.
Overall the flat was clean and had plenty of clean towels and bed sheets. I would not recommend using the sofa as a bed, it was a bit uncomfortable.
We had a great time. The place has many advantages: terrific location, helpful and responsive host, clean apartment with all required amenities for a comfortable stay.
On the downside, some of the furniture is a little old - the bed mattress is ridden and hence too soft, and some of the drawers don't open. But these are minor issues; our overall experience was very good.
We enjoyed our stay in André's apartment very much. Location and neighbourhood are very good. Thanks to the central location we could explore a big part of London on foot and shopping and restaurants were close by and plenty. André was really fast and helpful in communicating. The apartment is nice and spacious and it was great to have WiFi. Some minor repairs in the bathroom would make the place even nicer. Thank you, André!
Very nice apartment, great neighborhood, and very responsive host. As some other reviewers noted, the bathroom is a little dated and in need of upkeep; but it was not a big deal and didn't detract from our trip at all. This was a great deal for my family of four and was a great base of operations for us to see London. Thanks Andre!
