Hi Genia & Mike
We have recently finished our holiday so I wanted to touch base and say

We all had a great time and enjoyed everything about the trip very much.
My son loved his time there, especially around the pool. I will write a
review on the website as soon as I get time.
When and how do you return the deposit? I haven't been back to London yet,
I get back late tonight so apologies if you've already actioned it.
Response To WARNING - INTERESTED RENTERS BEWARE 19 JUL 2012
Further to your email of the 16th July 2012 we write in response.
We are sorry your views of the villa have changed so much since your first email above.
As a result of your trip onto the villa roof and manhandling of our satellite dish, we have incurred cost greater than the deposit you paid.
We are not seeking the extra cost from you and believe our decision not to refund your deposit is reasonable.
Should your pursue a small claim case against us we shall vigorously defend it and hope upon reflection you will decide against this course of action.
