I am so sorry and disappointed with your opinion of our house in Lebrija. There was a small glitch with the air-con and plumbing which was fixed promptly and appeared to be to your satisfaction.
Your comments on the cleanliness of the house were a big concern to me as I always use the same cleaner and we have never had one complaint. All our guests have been more than happy with the house which is evident in all our reviews. However, I did take into consideration your comments and spoke to the family that arrived a few days after you left to ask them how they found the house and if it was clean enough and they said the house was perfect and spotless and they were very happy with it which does not concur with your views. I also spoke to the cleaner and she informed me that she gave the house a through cleaning "as usual" I have however asked her to pay particular attention to the drawers/cupboards and not to leave dishes in the dish dryer rack.
In terms of the house and your comments regarding 'concrete everywhere'. The pictures of the house inside and out show exactly what the house looks like throughout, the patio floor has typical Spanish tiles and decorative bricks that are in many Spanish houses. Some of the plants may have died in the severe August heat, but they will be replanted as usual. I am confused about the yapping dog and crying baby as my neighbour does not have a dog or a baby!
I am genuinely sorry regarding your opinion of the house which thankfully is in stark contrast to the experience of all our other guests who have been extremely happy, which is obvious in the reviews. We have not had one complaint in the 4 years we have been renting the house. Indeed many of our guests return to the house again and we have a number of regular guests that come. Wishing you all the best in the future
