"We absolutely loved the villa. It had a great floorplan with all 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms very separate from one another, so there was plenty of privacy. The decor was very fun, the villa was very clean, the kitchen was a perfect size, and we loved the patio and balcony spaces. There were plenty of pillows, but not extra pillow cases. Also, there were a couple of inflatable mattresses, which worked out great for our 13 and 14 year old nephew and niece who wanted to hang out in the same bedroom but not sleep in the same bed. However, there weren't any extra sheets. There were PLENTY of towels, wash cloths, bath mats, etc. The kitchen had all the things we needed from glasses to silverware and even a really cute table cloth.
There were bikes to use and a parking pass for the private beach, which was great! Personally, I LOVED the pool. It was quite large, so even if there were a lot of people hanging out, there was plenty of room to spread out.
We did have 2 issues that were pretty frustrating:
The trash was overflowing when we got there, and with the hot weather, it was really stinky. It wouldn't have been that bad, because we wouldn't have used it as a patio area, but in the middle of the night, the raccoons would come and get into the trash. So they made a racket and woke up the people in the bedroom next to that patio, and then each morning, we had to go outside and clean up their mess.
We also had a really bad bug situation. According to the owners, this has been resolved. While we were there, though, we had to spray for bugs every night, and we killed dozens of roaches every night. The place was immaculately clean, and we kept it that way, but the bugs were just out of control. I contacted the owners several times while we were there to try to get these two situations resolved. They were very nice and very apologetic, but there wasn't anything done to resolve the issues during our stay. They offered to reimburse us for part of what we paid, but I have no idea how much that will be. I've followed up with them a number of times, and they assured me the check was in the mail, so I'm trusting that it is. I've had a VRBO home myself, so I understand that there are some issues that are tougher to handle remotely. If those 2 issues hadn't happened, I would rate this villa 5 stars and then some! I'm hoping the owners are following through with fixing those, I'll get a token reimbursement, and all's well that ends well!"
