House was cold
Several things did not work (eg kettle, no lock on bathroom door, closet door in hallway would not close)
Verbal communication with owner on arrival was difficult
Owner insisted on 40% of rental cost to be paid in cash on arrival and then ran every note through a counterfit checking machine
Owner insisted on doing some kind of security/administration check on every adults passport
All combined we lost the first 2 hours of our holiday - should have taken 10 minutes
Playa del Hombre is a surfers beach and not suitable for swimming - it is a wind tunnel. Playa del Melanara (about 2 miles south) is much better; sheltered, good for swimming and with shops/cafes beside it.
Layout of the villa is not ideal - you have to go down a set of stairs in order to get to the terrace area which over looks the beach so difficult if you want to eat or drink on the terrace.
Best thing about the villa is the view
