Lovely location, needs small improvements
Stayed for four nights by myself and enjoyed my stay. Room was clean and nicely decorated. Great bed and coverings. Beautiful 360 degree views. I live in a rural area so am used to driving on dirt roads so it was no big deal. Contacted the owner twice for missing items such as hand towels, wash cloths and an ice cube tray -- not everyone drinks only wine in the afternoons! Owner was most helpful (and apologetic) in quickly furnishing the items thru a local assistant/attendant. Four suggestions for improvement: 1) identify each "villa" with a number or name; 2) motion-sensor on outside light; 3) a small coffee pot, not an individual cup dispenser; and, 4) the correct info for the wireless connection on the inside door. Had a couple walk into my room unexpectedly and fortunately I was fully clothed! I could have done the same thing myself to someone else when I arrived given no identification on/near the door on either rooms/villas. There is a switch for the outside light but I often left in broad daylight and didn't want to turn it on, especially not knowing when I would return. For anything longer than a one-night stay, the individual coffee cup dispenser got tedious, even for just one person in the room (just bought a small coffee pot for my father for a mere $15.00). My neighbor was able to contact the owner to find out the password for the wireless connection since what was written on the door is out-of-date. The only other negative was the large, noisy air-conditioner inside the room but that is difficult to remedy. It worked fine but detracted from the experience. Overall, I would return here in the future because the pluses outweighed the negatives. Hopefully the owner can get his local assistant(s) to pay closer attention to those little details that make the difference between a good vs a great lodging experience.
