“not what we expected/ No privacy/ not safe”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2011 for a stay in May 2011

I booked this villa requesting total privacy which we did not receive b/c the owner's brother in law, his wife & 2 kids were constantly at the villa which made my family feel very uncomfortable and as if we were intruding in their home. Yes, they will all be there first thing in the morning waiting for you to leave & when you do, they are swimming in the pool & whatever else it is they do. They'll pop up at all hours, my son called them ninjas. Ridiculous. But most importantly, after informing the owner we had a toddler & asking if the house was safe we were not told about lights on the stairway that heat up as we unfortunately found out they are not safety lights.
The owner was very friendly before I finalized the booking and before I paid, Answering emails right away etc. I'm not even getting into a major "mess" up by the property "manager" that led to a rude phone call to us by the owner while we were on vacation in the villa when the "incident" was not even our fault. BUT, most disappointing is the fact that after we returned home and informed the owner about our 2 year old's 2nd degree burn caused by the lights & sent photos of her injury, he did not respond at all. Not even an apology. Guess the only concern was getting his money.
I would not recommend this villa for anyone expecting privacy, anyone with small children or people that have a hard time getting around. Oh, and driving up to the villa from town and down again will get really old after a couple days. Its a nightmare!
Too bad we have no formal contract since we only exchanged email and we paid cash upon arrival. But we do have emails....

It's a shame that you feel the way you do when you particularly wrote glorifying emails of praise. However, we researched your ID and realised that you do this to all Villas for some nasty reason. We are sorry that you feel that you need to do this to those of us who are trying (and are) providing great Villas and services.
