Villa Rose was so nice!!! Our holiday was perfect! (How satisfied were you with the property ?) Very Satisfied, Everything is okay - Paul Rhodes is so kindly, it was so easy to make booking with Paul - Mrs T. from Finland, June 13.
Very high quality and the owner was very welcoming. One minor suggestion is that the web-site suggested to me that the tennis court was within the property whereas it is on the landlord`s mother`s property and we would have needed to call before using it which was a bit off-putting: it didn`t particularly matter to us as we were not pushed about using it. (How satisfied were you with the property ?) Very Satisfied. All went smoothly. Thanks - Mr O. from Dublin June 13.
