“Prima Isola - Wonderful panorama but ...”
Reviewed 19 May 2013 for a stay in May 2013

Now the less positive aspects about the villa which is not up to the wonderful panorama
The most unpleasant : the furniture in the kitchen was quite dirty (it has not been cleaned
for a long time -greasy marks everywhere), in the bathroom too (especially the toilet bowl that we had to clean when we arrived)
In the bedrooms, no bedside tables and lamps.
Very bad soundproofing.The first night and on the very early morning it looked like the shower from the upper floor was in our bedroom ! The noise was unbearable!
The sofa was quite worn out.
And finally, i hope you never rent the basement separately... On your web site, the nice photo which shows a very bright room is quite deceitful' there is a wall just opposite to the window!

How easy was it to book the property? How helpful were the directions to the property?

“Never again!”
Reviewed 7 May 2012 for a stay in April 2012

The rental unit is advertised as a “spotless and bright” two level apartment. While the fact that the apartment is bright may be the case for the second level, the first level of the apartment build in the cellar section is very dark, has only small windows and low ceilings.

We stayed on the second level and the apartment was literally filthy. There were many visible cobwebs and dust balls. The floors were very dirty, leaving our socks black and our children’s clothes covered in dust. Also, the walls and doors were black in places with grease and other stains.

The showerheads in both bathrooms were old, covered in mold, and emitted only a small stream of water. The shower drains and toilet seats were full of hair from the previous guests. The toilets had not been cleaned; there were remnants of urine and feces on the toilet bowl and the heater next to the toilet was covered in urine and rust stains. Further to this, the tiled walls in the bathrooms had a coating of hair and dust.

The bedroom floors were also dirty and dusty. The walls had stains and were chipped in several places. While the white linen on the beds themselves seemed clean, there were hairs, incl. pubic hairs, from previous guests on the yellow blankets.

Within the cooking area in the kitchen, there were food remains and the surfaces were greasy. There were also food marks and grease stains on the walls. The sinks were stained and the electricity plug to be used for the water boiler was broken, adding safety concerns to our list of discontents. The kitchen sink, oven, and cupboards were old and broken in places.

We only stayed one night because our two children were tired from the trip. It took three letters to the agency to finally get our money back, although they still charged us for the one night we stayed.

Conclusion: Never again!
