“Fab location and fab outdoor area.”
Reviewed August 8, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We enjoyed our holiday but have to say we were mislead by your description of the villa. There was only 1 bathroom for 9 people - not 2 as advertised. Luckily there was an outside shower that we had to use or we wouldn't have been able to get ready to go out. The grounds, although nice with their fruit trees could not be entered by the children due to having been sprayed with pesticides - this we only found out via email several days into the holiday. The villa was far from private again as you advertise due to the fact the owners live upstairs, also there were random men in and out of the fruit trees which was disturbing given the fact we were sunbathing and also had young children in our party. The town of Velez Malaga is very nice and the owners kept themselves to them selves unless they were in the fruit trees. There was a real language barrier as no english was spoken so email and Google translate was used a great deal. The outdoor area was of great use given the fine weather we had and there was plenty of options for seating/sunbathing if you wanted sun or shade. We did enjoy the overall holiday, just feel you need to re-write the advert for future references as 1 bathroom for 2 families is not at all suitable.

Hello Jackie,
Thanks for giving our property a high rating, we are glad you enjoyed your stay!
Regarding the bathrooms, we were surprised by your comment as there are actually two bathrooms in the property, each one with a shower, plus the shower outside, by the pool. There are pictures of both bathrooms in this listing, so anyone can see that. Maybe you couldn't find the other bathroom?
About the pesticides, the trees were treated with the regular products and the safety period after its use had passed, the garden was perfectly safe for you and the kids. What we were trying to ask you in our mail was to respect the trees and the fruits, since the kids were pulling fruits from the trees before they were ripe and throwing them to the ground. Sorry if we scared you.
Last but not least, communication is not really an issue as even though the owner doesn't speak English, I (her niece) do speak English and I am always available to help on the phone.
Thanks again for everything,
