Not what we had hoped for although location was good.Reviewed on 22/09/2020
Our check in was pushed to 5pm to allow for cleaning to COVID-19 guidelines. This meant we really struggled to park anywhere near the house as the garage had been removed from being at our disposal due to COVID-19. I rang Daniel but got no response. We unpacked on the double yellows and parked a 10 minute walk away. Parking was better during the week but always a bit stressful. The house was not clean - there was a fingernail clipping and a false nail in the living room. Words fail me. The bedside lamps in the bedroom with a view could not be plugged in either. I rang Daniel who asked for pictures before sending his cleaner round with two toilet brushes (I forget to mention they were missing) and an extension lead. The lead was too short but we swapped it out with the TV one so that worked. I hoovered around but the hoover is broken too. The little light in the bedroom plugs into a wall socket which is operated by the wall light switch - this is extremely dangerous! I could go on and on - broken furniture, missing blinds, a dirty (seagull stuff on main view) window, a dressing table without a chair, a bed with no bedside table to put a light on, the thermostat needed new batteries - not supplied, a handle was missing from a wardrobe door, all stuff that would be easy to fix/supply so why leave it? There were also silverfish in the bathroom. Oh, and the sink is in a different room to the cooker and the fridge which we knew but it's really hard to drain hot water from pasta safely when the sink and the hob are effectively in different rooms. The view was great and the pool was pleasant, the neighbours were lovely.

Parking!Reviewed on 31/08/2020
Location excellent. Views lovely. Swimming pool great. Property needs some work. Bedroom door jams so beware. Issues like this and large patio window permanently misted, mattress very uncomfortable in one bedroom and a few small repairs need doing. These things made it too expensive. Parking nearly impossible. If you find a spot, donA?t leave it. We felt uncomfortable when informed by the owner that the people in the flat below could hear everything!
