“Two weeks too long!!”
Reviewed April 6, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

We have been visiting the Moraira area since the 1980's and have stayed in various self catering villas and hotels. After reading the reviews of this villa in El Portet, which is one of our favourite locations, I thought I had made the perfect choice for a 2 week stay after driving from the south coast of England.

Let's start with the positives:

Great location in a quiet area up the hill from the beach at El Portet with a long, narrow terraced garden leading down to the pool area below. Good garden furniture on the two terraces and 2 comfortable chairs and small table in the naya giving shade if required.

A lovely walk from the villa into the town of Moraira through gardens, the marina and the pretty narrow streets with fantastic views to Ifach.

A well equipped kitchen, although, would have appreciated perhaps a small 6 place dishwasher.

The negatives:

Although, I had read that the villa was spotlessly clean this was not the case on arrival. Also, the beds in Bedroom 2 had not been made up and in Bedroom 1 there was no duvet cover, just a flat sheet on the mattress and underneath the duvet. This was resolved by emailing the owner but was an indicator that the property is not being efficiently managed. I dusted all the surfaces and cleaned the kettle which had lots of lime scale deposits.

Our main problem over the fortnight period was the lack of space around the beds and the nightly challenge of trying to go to the bathroom during the night without bumping into the sharp edges of the bed frame or the chest of drawers!! So pleased that my daughter didn't join us for a long weekend and certainly cannot imagine how 2 couples would manage!! There is no wardrobe in Bedroom 2 only hooks and hangers behind the door!!

All in all a disappointing stay in a villa with more IKEA furniture and products than I've seen in a long time.

Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback. Even looking at your previous reviews, we are still disappointed that we, like the vast majority of other venues you have reviewed, have failed to live up to your expectations. We do try to provide a great stay for all our guests and our other reviews and comments in our guest book suggest we do.

In relation to your specific comments. There was some confusion on the part of our management company about the amount of beds required, apologies. I understand that they turned up and resolved this as soon as you pointed it out. We have now ensured that all four beds will be made up for every stay, regardless of the amount of guests who have booked.

It can be dry and dusty where we are and having dark furniture does tend to emphasise any dust. We have again spoken to our management company to ensure that this is addressed correctly. Thank you for pointing it out.

In relation to the beds, there was a balance for us of providing the biggest most comfortable beds we could (with award winning mattresses and Egyptian cotton linen!) versus the amount of space that would leave in the rooms. We accept that the bed frames are quite large and it may be that we haven’t got this balance quite right. We are in Spain next week and we will review this and it may be that the best option is to replace the frames, thus creating more space. Again, thank you for pointing this out.

In relation to your comments about Ikea. It is a difficult task, furnishing a house abroad completely from scratch, especially when it will be subject to wear and tear from our guests and things will need to be replaced frequently and match what remains. Ikea offers us great design, good quality and convenience. With global sales of £32 billion pounds last year, it seems others agree with us too!

We are glad that you liked the garden and it's surrounds, staying in Spain is so much about outdoor living and we are glad we got this right for you.

The house is located a short walk from the beautiful bay of El Portet and approximately 30 minutes from the lovely town of Moraira (5 minutes by car).

The accommodation is well kept and spotless. It is well equipped for an all year round stay. There are several outdoor seating areas that lend themselves to sun or shade and a lovely pool. As our stay was in March we didn't make use of the pool.

The log burner made the lounge very cosy on the cool evenings. There is also air con for the hot summer months.

We had a problem with the TV which was resolved promptly by the owner.

I would not hesitate to revisit this accommodation.
