I will be posting my review soon enough about the villa rental in Adeje owned by Paul Curtis, but I just wanted to put a caution out there for all those wanting to rent a villa in the Tenerife (specifically Adeje) area. I am sure there are a lot of great villas with professional owners out there, but we were not lucky enough to experience one on our vacation.
Briefly, we experienced water drainage issues (showers, sinks, etc.), sewage smell, no hot water, questionable housing complex (criminal activity warnings from owner, next to open field with garbage/junk, etc.), broken electronics (nice to have w/kids at night occasionally), no air conditioning (with poor ventilation and criminal warnings about keeping doors/shutters locked, this is definitely needed with the very humid and hot weather here!), and above all, an owner who was unprofessional and oblivious to his responsibilities as an owner especially in being unyielding in compromising our request to leave and recover at least a portion of what we paid since our holiday was being bombarded with numerous issues and calls to him for repairs/fixes, etc.
In this situation, if you want a nice holiday, just pay the additional money it costs to rent a hotel/resort and don't bother with the hassle of owners like this or at least set something up ahead of time in the contract to cover things like this (i.e. if repairs/fixes/issues go over 25% of time there, x amount is returned to tenant, etc.).
We were shocked by the unprofessionalism of the owner and his unwillingness to work with us in just letting us leave and returning some of our funds as a compromise. It was almost like a Jerry Springer moment where he was screaming at us over the phone and threatening to call the police if we violated his house even though we never threatened anything and actually left the house cleaner than we found it. I guess this is the response you get when you have owners who are hurting for money and desperately trying to sell their vacation rentals (sign on the front of the house).
Just a word of warning. We know we wished we had one before booking this villa. I will add that he conveniently deleted his housing ad (which had reviews) and recreated it and will probably do the same thing after I post mine.
