Hello there Fiona.
Thanks very much for the honest review.
As you know we are a couple of guys running a sole rental property on a part time basis, myself owning it and living away from Spain, with help from a friend in La Marina. Obviously we try to get it as clean as possible before guests arrive, but sometimes things do get missed.
I have just been to La Marina and stayed at the house with my family, and you may be pleased to hear we have made some improvements that would make any future stay a better one. We have basically given the place an update with new furniture (sofa bed, cabinets and accessories), a lick of paint and generally decluttered. The lights and electrics are also being updated shortly too.
It's starting to look a lot more homely again now, so please see the new photos I am going to post shortly.
Regarding the bedding and towels situation, it is very clear in the house description that we can provide these, but with a small charge of €10. This is something we have been doing for around 2 years now, as we are trying to offer accommodation as well priced as we can, and furthermore some guests like to bring their own.
I hope this information helps, and if you need anything else you are welcome to contact one of us.

I have taken note of your comment about the kitchen knives and will make sure that they are sharp when next you visit.
