“Buy the essentials before check-in”
Reviewed 12 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Bit disappointed that I hadnt read previous reviews and I would have been better prepared. I had picked up all necessary food but hadnt considered that salt & pepper, wash-up liquid, wash up cloth wouldnt be provided on site. There are no shops nearby so we had to use shampoo to wash up the first nights dishes (my own; there is none provided) . I rent out my own property near Edinburgh and personally provide salt & pepper, wash up liquid, clothes liquid, shampoo, conditioner etc etc so I expected similar level of basic provisions. There was a bad situation with ants in the kitchen and hall, we bought some insecticide which worked well, Simon promptly arranged for the key-holder/ next door neighbour to spray for us, however we had already taken our own action. Think that the inclusion of insecticide should be a basic under the circumstances.
The jacuzzi outside is unheated, for me it wasnt not an attractive option to sit in cold bubbling water.
Local dogs barking annoying.
Would recommend to some friends but not suitable for all

Hi Judith,

Thank you very much for your comments as all feed back is useful for me to improve things for my future guests.
What I think we must all remember when leaving reviews and as I can see that you say you also gave a property which you rent out, is value for money that has been paid for the holiday, your party has paid 17 pounds per person per night and I hope that you feel that you received good value for money.

Point number 1- No Washing up liquid, cloth, salt and pepper, shampoo and hair conditioner provided.
During the first years of renting this villa we did leave the salt pepper and oil, one week I even left some ice lollies in the freezer and that caused a great scandal for the next guests. All this being left by previous guests in order for them to save money, however I received complaints that the cupboards where not left empty and that we had not cleaned properly. We decided not to leave anything at all as we offer a self catering villa, which is when you cater for your selves and since then we have had no complaints.
What I do do is leave a welcome pack, which contains the following -
Bottle of Wine
Bottle of Water
Coffee
Sugar
Milk.
As far as the tourist licence goes in Spain I am not allowed to offer any services of a hotel and to leave things like shampoos and conditioners is not allowed and I do not have a hotel licence.

Point 2 - No local shop
There is a local shop only 900 metres from the villa which opens 7 days a week from 08.00 until 21.30 which is stated on the information sheet.

Point 3 - The Ants, this has been a problem this year due to the hot weather and the fact that some guests are not as careful as others and leave plates and cans around the garden which attracts the ants. We do clean the cupboards in the kitchen each week and as stated before we do not leave any food. I will be looking into a solution for this for next season may be a fumigation at the begging of the season I am unsure.

Point 3 - the Jacuzzi is not heated
I have spent 550 euros on the jacuzzi in September to change the electric panel and the function of heating the water is working, if only you would have phoned me or told me when I phoned you during your stay then I could have told you how it works.

Point 4 - The Local dogs barking
The spanish are not as considerate as us as far as animals goes and they do let them bark a bit too much, this is something that has worried me but does not seam to be a big problem for mosts guests and luckily only 1 neighbour has a dog so the others are further away from the villa.

Thank you again Judi for your comments and I do hope that you have enjoyed your holiday and have been able to go back home with some great new memories from this holiday, and I hope that my explanations on your points helps.

Bests Regards

Simon the property owner

“Good value, but not perfect for one of the hottest weeks of the year.”

Absolutely as advertised and in good condition. The only major problem was the heat. Like all modern Spanish construction (no insulation and a concrete roof under tiles) it acts as a heat sink so that the indoor temperature at night is higher than outside, which the supplied fans could not cope with. Air conditioning the bedrooms might be an expensive option but could justify an increase in rental price. Or perhaps insulate the roof space? A related issue is the absence of a 'toldo' on the rear terrace. As this gets the morning sun it was impossible to have breakfast outside after 7.00am (the pergola provided minimal heat protection).
Finally I would suggest that the basic requirements of self catering (condiments, cleaning equipment and materials, etc.) are provided up front, using the deposit as insurance against those who fail to replace the basic necessities. For us this was not an issue as our son and family live in Barcelona so we were able to take the loo paper, shower gel, washing up liquid, detergent, salt and pepper etc. back to their apartment. For others though it might be an unexpected and wasteful expense (our flat in Paris has all this in place on the basis of replace what you use which works fine).
