We stayed here in July 2013. During our stay the cheap fridge door shelf gave way under the weight of two bottles of milk and some orange juice. We explained this to the property manager, but unfortunately she chose to retain part of our security deposit. This was very frustrating as we had made an effort to leave the property clean and in good condition. The property manager was rude and unhelpful, accusing us of 'causing a great trauma to the fridge!'. She charged us four times what I suspect a replacement fridge shelf would cost and threatened to charge us for "a maintenance man to fit the replacement fridge door shelf" (even tho it just slotted into place!). I imagine they are looking for any reason to keep hold of your security deposit which is disappointing.
Other than that, the property was a little disappointing. In July 2013 it look quite jaded compared to the photos on the holiday letting website. The settees, kitchen and bathroom were quite grubby and in need of renovation. Also, the property is right over the road from some open space which is used by a large number of cats, who used a number of the local properties gardens as litter trays. This meant that the house smelled of cat mess, especially on the small garden balcony.... not ideal when your trying to enjoy a BBQ! The outside spaces were also very cramped and overtaken a little by the plants.
Overall I would not recommend this place. Cumbre del sol is a lovely place and our kids loved the pool. There are hundreds of properties in the area which I would choose instead of this one in future.
I was contacted by the renter by email the day after he left the property informing me that they had had a great time and that the house was perfect for them.
However, once the property was inspected, it was found that significant damage had been done to the fridge (photographs were taken). The renter had not reported this to the housekeeping staff, left any kind of note in the property, or mentioned this in his email.
Contrary to the renter's claim, he was only charged for the part (no labour). In fact it has now transpired that he was slightly under-charged - and he will be provided with a detailed receipt in due course. The remainder of his security deposit was promptly refunded. From my point of view, this was handled politely and professionally.
I am therefore at a complete loss to understand why he has subsequently chosen to submit such a review, which seems to entirely contradict his original communication.
We have never had any complaints about cleanliness, smell of cats, or overgrown plants. Had this been the case, all that was needed was a telephone call to the housekeeper who would have immediately remedied any issues he may have had.
The owner of this property is very particular about maintenance and upkeep. It is beautifully maintained, extremely clean, and the photos – taken earlier this year - are entirely accurate. Furthermore, the owner goes out of his way to ensure that his house is indeed perfect (as per this renter's original communication to me).

"Very beautiful and cozy Town House with sea sight!"
The Casa Elena was a really beautiful place to stay for our holidays! The house was very nice and quiet and we enjoyed the sea sight very much. Although we haven't met the owner, there were no problems with the check in and handing over the keys. The only thing which one should additionally be expected, are the extra bank charges if you pay in Euros! - that's because you pay to a pound bank account.
