Shabby villa not for sun worshippers
Kitchen and living space okay as you should be outside most of the time but the bedrooms and bathrooms are small and not spacious as other reviews suggest and there were only 4 of us. Private road in front of the villa was quite busy during the day and as the wall is very low not very private. Booked for 4 sun worshippers but only 2 very uncomfortable old and dirty sun beds on arrival which did cause arguments. Text manager to see if additional sun beds available and never replied after saying they would contact owner. Also the cash on arrival for transaction fees is ridiculous in 2018 especially as the manager who met us on arrival requested the full second payment which was paid in full at least 6 weeks prior to arrival. It’s a good job I had proof of payment with me! Villa needs more maintenance as several lightbulbs were out and most mornings the locks to open the wooden shutters to the terrace wouldn’t work from both the living area and the main bedroom, the gate was very rusted with sharp edges and difficult to shut. As a positive it is in a good location for the local supermarket and to get to the beach and the main strip.
Lovely Villa, Nice Location
We spent a very enjoyable week at the villa. Our flight was delayed but it wasn't a problem for checking in and we were met by a friendly chap, shown around and pointed in the direction of the local shops to get some supplies before it closed. The terrace area is lovely and it's great to sit out in, either in the sun or a shaded area if it's too hot.
The pool is great and we spent many hours in it. As others have mentioned the rough paving around the pool is quite sharp but we used the ladder so it wasn't a big issue. The pool could have done with a quick clean half way through our stay but it wasn't that bad to put us off going in.
The villa itself is very comfortable and had everything we could have wanted. Beds are comfortable, the sofa is great for lounging around on, not that we spent much time inside and the villa is well stocked with everything we needed. The doors from the main bedroom opening to the terrace are great and allow for a nice breeze at night.
Location is great. The marina is only a 10-15 minute walk, most of which can be along the lovely coastal path. There's a shop about 2 minutes away and a the nearest beach isn't much further.
Overall we had a great time and would be happy to go back one day.
It s has been a pleasure to have you as our guests.
Thank you for sharing your comments.
A bit tired and generally disappointing
The furniture inside and outside the property is tired and needs replaced. There didn't appear to be an iron or ironing board. The satellite tv was limited with no children's channels. The sunbathing area is limited and the loungers uncomfortable with no cushions. The area around the pool is very rough(sharp in places). My sons fingertips were raw after the first day. The location is fine as the villa is close to the bus stop. We never met the owners. We had a good holiday but the villa was disappointing.
We are sorry to know you have been disappointed.
We have not received any call from you requesting iron or board as both are inside the wardrobe of the twins bedroom.
Regarding, the sun loungers, any of our previous guests have requested them, and if you should call me or Pam we would be pleased to bring you 2 cushions.
We have advertised satellite TV only on the web site and also we have set the Spanish TV in English for all the TV programs original recorded in English, which means more than 4 channels only for kids are in English and plenty cartoons are available.
We are planning to paint and renew all the pool area, furniture, floors, and the little pieces on the concrete border you have mentioned, as there are little areas a bit rough, and these can be only fixed when the pool is empty and this will be done in October.
I like to meet personally my guests but due to an emergency I ´m still in mainland Spain and was my husband to meet you. We might have to apologize for his English, as it ´s not the best but Pam is always available to give us a hand .
We try to do our best for our guests as you can see for previous feedbacks. It s very important for us to know if there is a problem in order to solve it as soon as possible.
We want to thank you for taking the time to write your feedback and we send you and your family our best wishes,
Lovely villa, good location
Plenty of space, comfortable furnishings, well equipped kitchen, good value for money. Owners friendly and helpful. At first we thought the location was a bit far out but once we easily found our way round, bus stop 2 minutes away with a half hourly service into Playa Blanca, (1.40 euro each, Cabs didn't cost a lot more!)A lovely 15 minute walk into Marina Rubicon with some great restaurants and shops. 10 minute drive to playa Papagayo, beautiful. Not a lot of negatives but here goes. Paid a deposit to make booking on this website which turned out to be in addition to the quoted figure, had to pay the owners the full amount. Swimming pool not heated and edged with rough stone. Bed comfy, pillows need replacing.
Dear Guess, thank you very much for your comments. We are happy to know you have enjoyed your stay and we will take care of the edge with rough stone you have mentioned and we will check as well all pillows and replace them.
Regarding the quote figure, we always provided prior booking the villa price which is the only amount we have charged you ; the extra amount you mentioned , has been paid to owners direct as their service fee ; Owners direct charge you 5% of the reservation + 21% VAT. You can find all information about " why you pay this fee " at owners direct web site.
We send you our best wishes,

Fantastic location and facilities perfect to chill
The property was perfectly located with a beautiful 20 minute promenade walk into the marina for coffe, shopping and dining. The property was clean, well maintained and Mar & Javi were lovely hosts. If your looking for a relaxing break with comfortable surroundings this would be the perfect location.
Thank you ! to share your time in my house with other guess.
We would be delighted to see you again very soon .

This villa was perfect. It was the ideal place for us to relax and unwind in between our scedule of activities and excursions. It never fell short of providing comprehensively for all of our needs; even in our attempts to get creative in the kitchen. The villa is excellently placed in proximity to the local attractions and amenities, and is well served by transport links into town. We would definitely consider the option of returning to this villa on our next visit to the island.
Thank you very much to share your experience with all futures guess.
We would love to see you again very soon .
