I had stayed here for 2 weeks last year and forgot to write a review. I just saw the very negative review that was placed by the Dinns? When I stayed there the home was very clean, maid service was perfect, management co. was perfect and Dr Benn even emailed me to make sure everything was ok. Do not let this one review change your mind. The house is not in absolute brand new out of the box condition but I have no complaints beside having to leave too soon. As a matter of fact, our initial rental was for 1 week but we loved the place and the city so much we stayed an additional week. The house is way up in the mountains in a very private area of Vista Atenas. If arriving at night it might be hard to find. If renting a car during your stay do not get a small car, might have difficulty getting up the drive way. If not renting a car there are plenty of taxis in town and also if needed, Uber. Property has its own private remote controlled gate leading up to the home which made me feel extremely safe during our stay. Manager Marian was easily available at all times when I had any questions or simply help with anything during our stay.

We arrived in the home in the evening. At first glance it looked wonderful. We had rented the hose for a month and it was expensive. We felt it was worth it as the house advertised many amenities we wanted. Problem is they did not work. No TV (in English) No Movies, No Stereo. The house was not clean and we wound up changing beds ourselves. We left a week early as a result. When asked for the weeks refund from the owner he claimed our complaints were baseless. All and all a terrible experience.

It is very strange that the Dlinns stayed for 3 weeks without any complaints and then made a list of problems:
1. There are 2 TVs. One in the lounge and one in the bedroom. The bedroom TV developed a fault which has been rectified. The lounge TV worked faultlessly and has some channels in English. We have since changed from Sky to Cable Tica which has more English channels.
2. There was a stereo hifi unit just adjacent to the TV which worked perfectly during their stay.
3. They complained the sheets were never changed. In fact the sheets were changed weekly except for one week when Mrs Dlinn told the cleaner she did not want her in the bedroom.
4. They complained the grout between the grey tiles were not white. The grout color matches the tiles.
5. They complained that the cleaner was not cleaning well and then they complained that the cleaner was taking too long to clean the lounge and dining room.
6. They complained the glass table top outside was dirty but when I asked for a photograph they did not provide it..

I have never had anybody make complaints like the Dlinns. You only need to look at my past reviews to see that they are excellent as is the property and service. If the house is as bad as they stated one has to ask why did they wait 3 weeks to complain? Unfortunately some people like to complain in order to get a refund.
All in all a bad experience as an owner.
