“Unsure”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2014 for a stay in December 2013

Me and my husband and two adult children stayed here through the holidays. When we arrived the pool had not been opened. We did pay for the extra for the pool to be open and heated. We contacted the owner via email and someone was sent out. The pool company explained that the pool had not been opened in quite some time and the heat was not on. It took them three days to get it going. Although the pool had the chemicals and heat it was still green due to the fact that the pool company explained to us that it had to be drained and scrubbed to get it clean properly as it was not kept up with. Needless to say the pool was not used. The yard was a mess to say the least. It certainly did not look well kept as the pictures show for the rental. There was yard debris everywhere, rotting timbers where the flowers beds where suppose to be. Knocked over flowerpots with dead planting in them. Beer cans and trash in the bushes. The fence was rotting in spots and some of the wood slats where broken off and laying on the ground. The screened in area has lots of rotting wood and some mold in the corners. Inside the house was decorated well and had everything needed for cooking and such. There was a odor of mildew though it was pretty strong in the kitchen area. The master bedrooms bathroom has a shower with glass doors, one of them is screwed shut so you can not move it and it is the one where you would control the water so using it is pretty difficult. We used the other bath due to this. The tvs in the bedrooms are tiny. Not that this is a huge issue however we expected them to be a little larger than they were. There were many light switch nobs missing. When we went to do laundry at the end of the week we noticed a large puddle in the foyer. We realized it was coming from the washer. We tried to figure out where it was leaking and found the problem however due to the doors on the closet we could not move it to fix it. It was obvious that it had been in issue for quite some time. It was disgusting behind the machines... mold, dirt and lint. We cleaned it all up the best we could and let the owner know right away. The management company was the worst I have ever dealt with and I must say that we vacation 3 to 4 times a year. The owner was helpful considering she is in the UK. There was a snow storm where we lived and therefor our trip had to be extended by three days and the owner was gracious enough to let us stay there although we did have to pay the extra though I think it should have been a wash with all the issues we had. A review is just what it is. What might be important to one person may not be important to someone else. I can say that the house itself was ok and the owner very nice however the property is not kept up with and the management company was not there at all for any of the issues. I would not stay here again unless all issues were taken care of and different management company handled the property.

Management Response
Feb 20, 2014
We, the owners, appreciate the feedback we get from our guests, be it good or bad as we would like to address any issues such as has been experienced by this family. We are in the UK and therefore too far away to manage details and we were recently dumped by our managing agent, left high and dry with very little option but to take on the agents who took over that previous company. We are extremely disappointed to say the least that any guest is not happy at our villa; it is not luxurious by some standards but then the price reflects that we hope, however some of the basic points mentioned in this review should be put right. We will do our very best to improve things.
