“Nice but.....”

Reviewed 17 May 2013

We mostly enjoyed our stay. Arrived earlier than expected, caretakers were waiting. Place was clean. The pool was warm enough to swim in & good amount of utensils in the house. Beds comfy, nice shower, great views, cool terraces, plenty of books & dvds. We especially enjoyed the juicer! And a bonus having cbbs on tv! There are a few things that we feel could be improved on. 1) first impressions when coming to Douglas Creek were somewhat spoilt by the view of various items strewn across the care takers garden (looked like rubbish, old boxes, bits of machinery, old bits of toys). We did initially feel slightly aprehensive! Perhaps they should keep things a little neater for guests arrival, especially during the day. 2) the directions possibly need updating as the road numbers on the instructions are not the same as all the signs & we didnt see the medical centre even though we drove past frequently (& kept an eye out). Very confusing & luckily we were using a sat nav system with the old numbers. Signs must have changed as numbers begin with 7. 3) the sandpit could've done with a bit if neatening - my husband racked it a few times to get big stones out if it. The toys (car/digger) were not in working order. Seems pointless having them there & made it look a bit "tired". 4) the firepit had rubbish in it & is very over grown. We initially thought it was a place for a Bon fire to dispose of things. 5) the aircon is a) so noisy in the bedroom above the main one, we couldn't sleep with it on. It literally reverberates through the floor. We could even hear it from the opposite terrace. It is equally as loud in the bedroom it was cooling. It was so loud it was difficult to enjoy the sounds of nature with it rattling & choking away. It was so incredibly hot (dial was reading 39C in the shade). As a result our daughter slept really badly (too noisy with it on, too hot with it off). b) The aircon in both the main bedroom & second bedroom (with balcony) did not touch the sides on full blast. I would never stay here in the heat of summer if that aircon was as is! 6) so many flies & no swatter. I'm not keen on using spray & especially not with my little one around. 7) would've been good to have some surface cleaner to use. I used something that turned out to be vinegar. 8) that driveway where the main gate is has a horrific bump in it. No matter how carefully I drove, I scraped the bottom of the car so badly every time we left or returned. 9) the care takers are literally right next door. Lovely friendly people, but you can hear their children crying (often thought it was my own girl & having to check it wasn't!) They were doing something with a strimmer or some other machine all day one day which was very annoying & disturbed the peace somewhat. There was no hammock & when I asked about it I received a curt two word email back. Ask Belen. I was a bit taken aback! Shouldn't the owners check with their care takers? Anyway, owner must've realised as the hammock was up at the end of the day. So we had 2 or 3 days use. Not a big issue, but it could've been handled a bit better/in a more friendly manner IMO. This is just my opinion. Perhaps we were the first ones in before the season?

Owner's reply: Some people aren't happy unless they look for something to moan about. The caretakers house is not right next door, it's on the next plot of land, out of sight. They can't see you and you can't see them. They do have a gorgeous 3 year old who you may hear now and again in the distance. My kids always drown Sofia out so I never hear her. She may leave the odd toy around to but I am not going to worry about that. We are in the country with 700 square meters of land to maintain so you may see a strimmer on the caretakers land. This is normal. He NEVER uses it when guests are in the house. It is possible you might get unlucky a Spanish neighbour with land may come and decide to use his strimmer though. It's like back home when the neighbour cuts his grass, HOW INCONSIDERATE.... My son has the habit of putting rocks in the sand pit, he fills up his dumper truck with them so sorry about that. The air conditioner had unscrewed itself from the wall and was vibrating loudly, it has been fixed now so no more loud noise. I have to turn the ac off at night because the kids get to cold. Make sure all the doors are closed otherwise it won't work. It's like having the heating on in winter and all the doors open and wondering why it's still cold inside. All are other guests have been completely happy and many rebook. If something isn't working just let the caretakers know and they will be happy to sort it out. Don't wait until you get home and then moan about it. That doesn't help anyone. To all who are thinking of booking Douglas Creek. You will have a lovely time I can guarantee it....

“Fantastic holiday home in stunning setting!”

Reviewed 16 Aug 2011

We have just returned from an amazing week at this stunning property. Travelling with 3 children 9,3 and 1 we were a bit anxious it would cater for all our needs but it went beyond our expectations. The house is very well equipped, has air conditioning (which we needed - the weather was very hot) with a swimming pool and even Sky TV! It felt like a rural retreat it was so peaceful and relaxing, yet had all the mod cons you need. The views are spectacular and the grounds of the house are wonderful to explore with lots of interesting things for the children. It is only 10 minutes from the town of Coin, which has supermarkets, restaurants etc We also did a trip to swim in the lakes in the mountains and went to the coast near Marbella - all of which are very accessible from the property. We just wished we could have stayed longer-perfect holiday!

Owner's reply: Thanks for the lovely words Rachel. You keep coming back which is a good sign.

“Fantastic home from home”

Reviewed 14 Aug 2011

Loved this house, it has everything you need for a relaxing break. The kids loved it with places to explore and the feeling of freedom you cannot get at the coast in August. The location is great, a short drive to Coin provides all you will need whilst you can drive to Ronda (well worth a visit) El Chorro, Marbella, etc within a reasonable time.

Owner's reply: Thanks Rowan, we are very central to lots of tourists destinations. I'm glad you made the most of that.
