Wonderful Location and Home but Cleanliness a Let Down
This villa is so beautiful, the design of the building transports you to the Mediterranean and instantly puts you in holiday mode, because of its high vantage and large windows glimpses of the sunsets and ocean can be seen and a small walk and you’re at the beach! We did enjoy our stay overall and got a great work out from all the stairs! The check in process was very easy and host communication especially in light of Perth’s snap lockdown was fantastic. This was the first stayz we have been too that required us to bring our own towels and linen but I am so glad we did in the end. I highly recommend bringing your own pillows also as the ones provided are extremely thin and uncomfortable. While the home was tidy and floors clean -The biggest letdown was the cleanliness of the kitchen and bathroom. In this age of COVID, cleanliness and hygiene should be paramount to show care for others health and safety. This so sadly was not the case. My husband and I were disgusted by the kitchen. Whist tidy it was DIRTY. The fridge/freezer had half eaten ice cream, spills, crumbs and debris on each shelf and drawer, there were food splatters on the stove, rodent droppings in oven, dirty benches with a few maggots, dirty cutlery, utensils and glasses, wet dishes put away in cupboards, shower with used soap bars, mould and ants. The ants others have put in their reviews but didn’t bother us as we know how hard they are to get rid of but the rest was so disappointing. We spent the first hour of our holiday cleaning the home so we could put our food away. There were hardly any cleaning supplies besides dish soap and used chux cloths. This really does sadden me to write and had we contacted the host on arrival I’m sure they would have sorted it out but we did not want to waste any more Of our holiday on feeling negative so we focused on our activities and enjoyed our stay. You are wonderful hosts and I’m sorry to write a review like this but I must be honest so others do not have this happen to them.
