The Villa could live upto it's expectations with some remedial works, there are areas that are becoming a little tired & unkept. The BBQ area & cupboards for storage were disgustingly dirty with debris, some odd dirty plastic kids toys left strewn in the bottom. We had no BBQ for the first weekend as it was locked away with no Gas bottle supplied, ready for our arrival. So poorly prepared In anticipation of the 1st guests of the season.
Some of the cupboards in the down stairs single room had an array of files, spare tiles & general disarray of poorly stowed electricals on show.
The children's playroom/bedroom in the upstairs loft area has a long opening about 3ft up from the floor that children can climb through to their deaths - it's a sheer drop from there down into the full height of the stairs onto hard marble & tiles. This is also where a double bed is situated immediately beneath this opening, making it even easier/accessible to a child to lean through.
The light switch for this area is down below the bunk bed, on the next floor down. This meant my Daughter & her partner had to use torches to gain access to this double bed as there was no way to turn then off upstairs once in bed. They also had to use this attic (situated in the attic playroom) double bed to ensure the safety of their children. Crazy, dangerous set up!
The studio bed room bed is uncomfortable as a double, with a wooden slat beneath, broken (not replaced as promised when pointed out) and an inadequate mattress. There's no blackout louvre blinds so you get woken with the sunset streaming in. Although this is beautiful to see, not ideal if on holiday & wish to sleep beyond 6am. Also, the hessian sacking curtains to diffuse the light are disintegrating in this study room & the living space down stairs so you are constantly negotiating excessive fibres from these on the floor, your feet & clothing.
Location is lovely with access to roads & Costal walks to Beaches. Spacious living space & open plan kitchen/living area. The double aspect raised super king sized bedroom is lovely & works well as a space to enjoy.
