“Fantastic house in laid back village near the sea.”
Reviewed April 14, 2012 for a stay in April 2012

I would highly recommend this place if you want a relaxing holiday in a friendly and laid back village in Spain. A car is preferable for daily trips to the beautiful beaches and country side around. The house itself is very tasteful with everything you need to make your stay enjoyable (fast Internet, comfortable large bed, fantastic roof terrace,etc...).
The kitchen is very well equipped and a joy to cook in.
This place has an earthy feeling and you can see that the owner has put a real effort and a personal touch to make it that way.

“Nice location/ badly managed/lots of potential”

This apartment looked great in the photos -and it must of been fabulous at some point - but it is sorely in need of maintenance -the owner who is very nice, is British, and lives out of the country. Many things were literally falling apart in our hands
The kitchen was ill furnished -the oven wasn't working, the ants were invading, molding and hanging chairs were falling down... you get the picture
The owner has a woman, as property manager, who is pretty much non responsive to feedback.
That said the location near the beach and the actual space are lovely
I am sure the owner will rectify the maintenance issues - and hopefully hire a different more responsive property manager
He did give us a discount for the troubles and his recommendations for beaches was spot on !

Management Response
Oct 24, 2011
Thank you for your comments and I am really sorry that you were not completely happy with the two days that you spent at Casa Facinas.

At the time you mentioned that one piece of architrave (moulding) was loose and that a string came undone on the hanging chair. Both of these issues were very quickly addressed. As far as I know nothing else was falling apart. It is only by our clients giving us feedback that these small maintenance issues can be resolved.

You advised us that the problems with the kitchen were that the knives weren't sharp and that you couldn't work the oven. The knives are Japanese Global stainless steel and sometimes need sharpening. For this reason there is a knife sharpener in the drawer. Also there are full instructions on how to work the oven in the information folder. I am sorry that the manager was not able to help you with these issues. Casa Facinas is a self-catering property and as such our clients are required to be somewhat self-sufficient.

Casa Facinas is in the countryside. In the summer windows tend to be left open and if food is left out ants will sometimes make a visit. This is unfortunately beyond our control other than to advise guests to keep all food in the fridge or cupboards and to empty the rubbish regularly.

Otherwise thank you very much for your positive comments.
