Underligt strømforsyning opvask kan ikke køre når man forlader huset. Meget rungende arkustik
Dejlig udsigt og velindrettet hus, der dog har en meget rungende akustik, som evt kunne afhjælpes lidt med gardiner af stof eller mere træ end glasburet. Vi manglede indendørsstole og bordplads til alle, når vejret var til indendørs spidning (efterår) vand og el ikke logisk fungerende, opvask kan ikke køre når nøglekort tages med på tur. Oplysning om varmtvandsforsyningen ville have været god at vide på forhånd,så det havde været super fra start.
Dårlige vejforhold det sidste stykke til huset. Men huset var en dejlig ramme om vores ferie
Beautiful villa which I would highly recommend
A beautiful looking villa, with a high specification and well maintained. Our flight was one and a half hours late but Mario called to check on our progress and was waiting for us when we arrived. He provided all the information we would need for our stay and gave helpful hints and recommendations. He made a point on checking with us the next day to make sure we had the right code for the wifi and that we had no problems. Everything in the villa is of a high standard and worked well. We had a small leak in our shower but it was dealt with pretty efficiently. The swimming pool is lovely and we made good use of the superb BBQ area. You will need a car in this location. Realistically, you can't really walk to any facilities but there is a little village with shops, tavernas and beaches within 10 minutes drive from the villa. Both the owner and her agent called us during our two week stay to make sure everything was fine, so we got looked after and felt safe and secure.
Ruhig gelegene Villa mit traumhaftem Blick und hochwertiger Ausstattung
Ein toller Ort um ruhige Tage zu verbringen. Wunderschöne Terasse mit großem Pool, Barbecue Bereich und herrlich terrassiertem Garten, der viele Rückzugsgelegenheiten bietet. 4 Balkone und überdachte Terrassen laden zum Verweilen ein. Strände, Ausflugs- und Wander Möglichkeiten sind schnell erreichbar.
Nice place, beautiful view and privacy
4 dads and 8 children enjoyed this villa! Beautiful swimming pool and a fantastic view were the main bonus of the villa. Damn only the ants who lived with us in the villa:-( we still give 5 stars.
Spectacular gem with uninterrupted sea view
I was a bit apprehensive about booking after reading the review from Rebecca, but we were really pleasantly surprised when we arrived. No problems to speak of and the staff working for the villa came to check on us on the second day to make sure we had everything we needed.
The villa was luxurious with a homely feeling, while the outside pool area and veranda are such a relaxing place to spend evenings, overlooking the stunning bay. Most evenings we spent with the family taking in the views and having BBQs by the pool.
The surrounding areas are also very quiet and we felt very safe, and the location is outstanding.
We all enjoyed it so much, look out for us next year!

Could be beautiful but poorly maintained
I'll start with the good points!
The views are exceptional! This property has the most beautiful views and every terrace makes the most of them. A beautiful spot to relax and drink in the scenery.
The property itself could be gorgeous. It's very spacious and plenty of space for two sharing families with children.
The pool is lovely.
Now the bad...! the plumbing throughout the entire property is completely shoddy & needs a major overhaul! Within 24 hours of arriving we had a leaking bath, a leaking shower and the pool heating (which we had paid a lot of extra money for) had broken. 'Jimmy' the maintenance man was great and came straight away... but sadly fixed nothing! After a specialist plumber was called and a lot of black soot exploded (literally) all over the pool and terraces, the boiler was fixed and pool heating resumed! Then the downstairs toilet began to leak sewage water... stinking out the downstairs bedroom and making that bathroom completely unusable. This was never fixed either, even though Jimmy did come twice to look at it. The upstairs toilets then began to really smell too... badly... and we needed fans on all the time to keep the air circulating as the smell was so unbearable. By the end of the first week, the kitchen sink had also given up on us and was needing daily plunging! It began to leak every time we took the plug out and spread old dirty washing up water/food all over the terrace by the pool. So we were all treading in unpleasant old waste water which was pretty disgusting! the dishwasher also leaked permanently so we had towels all over the floor to soak that up!
All in all - a disaster! We contacted the owner immediately and continued to contact her as we became more and more desperate. I can only imagine the house had been empty for a long time before our visit as the plumbing simply couldn't handle being used.
At no point have we been offered an apology. We have been told that there will be no refund as she has spent a lot of money on the maintenance guy (the one who didn't manage to fix anything) and also on the pool heating. So it is up to us to bear the brunt of the costs.
A huge shame and a very nearly ruined precious 2 week holiday. Had we realised how bad things were going to get we would have looked to move but with no wifi and the promise of things being fixed we tried instead to just enjoy our holiday.
I would caution anyone looking at this villa - there are plenty of other options in the area!
Dear Rebecca, thank you for your feedback. I always want my guests to have a good stay in my villa so I'm very sorry to have read your feedback.
Im glad that the pool heating was fixed without delay. I'm also very sorry about the leaking to the bath and the toilet. I could not do anything about it because the maintenance guy Jimmy has visited you a few times about it and he could not find any problem. I did also enquired with the guest who left not long before your stay, they were not aware any of the problems. I now have asked the current guests, they finds no problem either. So I did not know how to resolve it for you. I have ordered a brand new dishwasher immediately after you informed me about the leak and Jimmy confirmed that the small leak is due to the wear tear of the dishwasher door seal. Unfortunately the delivery of the dishwasher was not speedy enough for your stay. The kitchen sink have been unblocked after many hours of trying and discovered many rubbishes in it that should be in the waste bin instead of the kitchen drain. Once again I'm saddened that you did not have a very good stay in my villa. I will continue to work hard and improve the villa because I know holidays are something special to look forward to.
