1. After our arrival, we saw a note “DO NOT THROW PAPER IN THE TOILET!” on the bathroom wall. This note was not shown in the advertisement photos.
Immediately, we emailed to enquire whether we were allowed to throw the supplied toilet tissue papers designed for toilet use. Obviously, we would not throw paper towels, newspapers, writing papers, baby nappies etc in a toilet.
To our surprise, the owner’s email reply was, “Not any kind of paper is allowed to be thrown in the toilet even the toilet tissue paper. This can block the toilet. You may throw the tissue toilet paper to the bin. This is the same everywhere in Greece.”
Similarly, the agent’s email advised us, “Please don’t throw any kind of paper in the toilet.” “This is a normal case in MOST HOUSES in Greece.”
We stayed in six other accommodations in Greece, this was the only place with this problem. We do not believe it could not be fixed.
The owner and agent were aware toilet issue beforehand because they had placed this note on the bathroom wall.
The agent emailed us to inform that toilet issue was out of his hands.
We also used local hotels’ toilets.
2.After our arrival, we discovered Nikos A was the agent not the owner. The owner lived abroad; we couldn't reach her apart from emailing her the issue.
3.This house is cluttered with old furniture of varying quality, some open areas were dirty and full of junk. The kitchen and bathroom are old and tired. There is a stale, damp and musty odour, the twin bedroom was the worst.
4.A fluorescent light tube was abandoned in the garden.
5.Stuff was left inside washing machine when we arrived. We had to remove it.
6.We couldn't use refrigerator because it had a rancid smell . We had to soak our milk in a saucepan with cold water to keep it cool.
7.We travelled extensively, this was the worst accommodation we have ever encountered.
Regarding the awarding of stars; We are finding it difficult to award any stars to a holiday home with a toilet we cannot use as we are accustomed to use a normal toilet.
