Stunning little property, Juan and Susan are great.
We will return
Great house, great pool
The house is as cute in real life as online. It is very well presented and very well equipped with everything you might need. If we are ever in Alhaurin de la Torre again we would definitely stay here again.
Thank you for the comment, glad you enjoyed the house, you guys are more than welcome back again!
Lovely, relaxing getaway
My wife and I spent two weeks in this cosy house with good amenities and a nice setting. Nice to have the pool to cool down. Nearest beaches (Torremolinos) is just 30 minutes drive away. The only downside to this property was the nearby barking dogs - which can keep sensitive sleepers awake at night - and the occasional sticking when trying to open the electronic gate. However, we were warned about this. Our meet-and-greet host Susan was very welcoming, warm and friendly. We would certainly consider renting this property again in the future, and would recommend it to family, friends and anyone else who would be interested in holidaying in this part of Spain.
Thank you for your comment, sorry about the dogs, but unfortunately its something that occasionally can happen due to being a country property, the gates are working again in perfect condition.
It was a pleasure having you stay with us and we would love to have your return in the future.
Regards to all
We have to say that we were disappointed in this house. We had to wait already two hours to get the house as they were late in cleaning all the houses they rent, we were last and must have been shown around in about 5 minutes. A few examples of our disappointment: the shutters were in poor condition, we had to hold them shut with electric bands, with very little air coming through (the other alternative is to freeze from the air-conditioning, which by the way works well in this house). The door into the kitchen would not open until we fixed it. The owner has installed some high-tech shower but it does not have any power and it is extremely small, it has blocked out the window in the bathroom/toilet, not practical when 6 persons are in the house! The double beds are very small and uncomfortable, the 3 single beds make an awful squeaking noise and there is only one wall socket to share between them. The pool had the strangest of taste and it was impossible to open your eyes for even 1 second without them seriously stinging. We were told that there was nothing wrong with it; I disagree to this day with that. We have never had a pool like that before.
You can always expect one or two small problems but when they add up they do tend to seriously annoy you, e.g. washing line just too small, no pegs, no cutting board, no colander, no change of sheets, lack of large bowls (only 1), only 2 wine glasses, etc., the list can get long, and no plastic glasses, a necessity when you have a pool. There was only the minimum. We bought a lot of things. The owner/helper of course would come and replace or fix things and came by at least 5 times, but that is not the point, when you rent you expect these things to be checked and replaced before you arrive, not being constantly disturbed. There is also no welcome/instruction booklet as you find in most houses, so you don’t know where the bins go, the Wi-Fi code, etc. The outside watering system came on at 8am and went off at 9:30 am soaking everything in sight, because the timer had not been corrected. No possibility of topping or cleaning the pool unless you asked for the pool man to come which again means being disturbed. Sunbeds would benefit from an update. A very good barbeque though. The dogs do bark but it was supportable.
Still we did enjoy our holiday despite these problems, however I think it's more constructive for us to give you our honest feedback to enable you to make changes.
First of all Friends, you must know that i never reply to a clients complaint, quite the contrary, normally i listen, take there comments on board and take the necessary measures to correct the situation.
I come to disprove the bunch of lies you are pointing out with intention to ruin my reputation:
In all our publicity of the house, and input instructions, I leave clearly stated that the time of entry to the house is from 15:00. It is not our responsibility that you turn up to the house at 13:00, two hours before check-in time. Obviously at that time the house is not ready, and it is not fair or ethical, so you can not blame me that you have to wait to enter. It is not true that my property windows are in poor condition. They are in perfect condition and have each and everyone of them have metal hooks to prevent the wind from moving when they are open. With our air conditioning system you do not have to be frozen, it has thermostat with which you can regulate the temperature you want. What you can not do is lower the temperature there of, as did, at least, 18 ° C, from 25 ° C which is the recommended temperature that always leave thermostats, and write that you where frozen in my house , the logic is to turn it up if you are cold! The kitchen door opens, opened and continues to open perfectly. The shower we have installed in the house is spectacular, is huge for one person although somewhat small for two, with all mod cons i.e raido, lights, ventilation to avoid misting .The double beds are standard in Spain measures 135 x 190 cms. No one had ever complained about the size of them, but I take note.The single beds have been renovated both mattress and bases this year as the sunbeds! The pool is maintained per week, which under normal conditions is more than enough. However if needed it would be cleaned 5 times in 7 days. Analysis was also performed each of those 5 times and you yourself could see that in all analyzes the result was that the water was perfect.New kitchen equipment was bought this year, hence the new toaster that you didnt find with our us coming up and opening you the kitchen cupboard! For customers who are only here one week there is on set, that has never been a problem. The house has a washing machine, and if necessary can be washed.We dont have follets as we receive all our clients and explain everything that they will need to know, with regards to the garden it is logic that if we want a nice garden we must water!!
Very well kept Finca in well maintained grounds
Stayed here with my family for 1 week. Handover was a breeze. Ideally situated in a quite area but close to everything you need. Very secure with electric gates to driveway. thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and will definitely be visiting again. Many thanks Juan, Sarah and family
We are pleased you enjoyed your stay with us was a pleasure having you, we look forward to your return in the future.
I would first like to thank Juan for a fantastic stay.
The villa has everything you would need and was spotlessly clean. We arrived there with 2 young children and they both loved the pool, it was not a heated pool but because the weather was so good during our stay it never felt cold.
Location wise was also great, not too far away from any of the major Costa sites. Situated in a very quiet location so a car was a must. The villa was fully enclosed with security gates that worked by remote, meaning the kids could not escape.
It’s about a 20 min drive from the airport and we found a Lidl close by too, which really helped. Overall I was very impressed with the villa and felt it was far better than the rental cost. I think we will look forward to returning in the near future.
Thank you for your comment, we are please to hear you enjoyed your holiday and the stay in hour house was everything and more than you expected, it was a pleasure haveing you stay and look forward to your return.
