We were initially pleased with the villa. It was spacious, very clean and nice quality furnishings. The beds were of good quality but the mattresses were very very soft. This may suit some - but not us. In order to sleep well we used both bedrooms.
On day two of our stay we awakened to barking dogs from the villa directly across from us. We thought nothing much of it but the same thing happened day three and during the day, as well as every day and night we were there. When we stepped out to the screened in lanai the dogs went berserk. We called over to the villa to find the owner was not home and the dogs were left to bark with no restraint. This particular villa was an owner occupied villa and this lady did not care at all who enjoyed their stay.
We went to the pool one day of our stay only and were made to feel very uncomfortable by a lady who told us this was not a vacation resort. Why she let us know this was never disclosed. We had no children, and are mature adults, not young party people. We remained at the pool for 15 minutes only.
The barking dogs ensure we will never return. Vacation rentals do not permit pets but you can be sure that you may not be in for a quiet relaxing stay if you are unfortunate enough to be positioned next to an owner occupied villa.
