I am sorry to hear about how you did not like the property or the service I provided. I asked on arrival if all was okay with the property which I might add has been fully painted this year inside and out, the installation of a gas water boiler so as the guests have constant hot water at all time, refurbishment to the terraced area and steps to the pool, purchase of new sun beds for the garden area etc. The owners of this property refurbish something every year to maintain the villa to a high standard. Unfortunately sometimes problems crop up where a pipe bursts or a fitting breaks etc and I did respond as quickly as possible and had the problem rectified within one hour. I apolgise if this was not quick enough. Regarding the few things you spoke to me about, I adressed these issues. The dishwasher unfortunately needs to be filled with salt and rinse aid for it to function properly. We do try to ensure this is checked at each change over. Re the request for more towels, I did explain that only one towel per person is provided. Normally this is sufficient as the property has a washing machine for use.
I believe I arrived at the villa before the requested time of 7.45, unfortunately it took me a little longer than normal to check over the property as I found several problems. I apolgise again if this made you late for your journey to the airport. I do aim to provide an excellent service so will ensure that this does not happen again.
We stayed in the villa from mid August. The agents were a dream to deal with, nothing being too much trouble and great communication.

I would just like to respond to this review.
Firstly the email conversation regarding the mess that was left was started on 22nd May so pretty much straight after your departure.
The cleaners arrived to find the house doors wide open, front and back.
The house was found to be in a real mess with food remains, cigarette buts, bottles and clothing left strewn across the house. The sandwich maker in the house had to be disgarded as it was in a real mess, leather suite was covered in food/drink marks, glass tables were badly scratched, marks all over the walls and 2 sun loungers went missing.
In all the time we have been renting the house out we have NEVER kept a deposit, but the damage to the house, replacement items (such as sandwich maker and sunloungers) plus the cleaning left us with a €380 bill to pay. Keeping the €300 deposit has still left us €80 short in the end but we decided just to draw a line under this.
As you will see from all of our other reviews and comments we provide a high standard house and personal service which every one of our guests have enjoyed. We have had nothing but positive feedback in the past and where people break items they own up or replace them before departing.
