We loved the pool, the quiet location and the lovely warm welcome we received and we really liked Tenerife.
In our opinion, the owner of the property, however, needs to invest a little time and money to repair wear and tear in a property that has been rented a long time without any recent updating. The problems are not major - but there are enough neglected things to make the whole place feel a bit shabby and aged. It felt rather basic and wasn't really a home from home: The sofas for example were very stained under the pink throws that had been used to cover them up, there was bathroom furniture which was cracked, ancient and had the laminate falling off. The toilet seats were stained with age, so didn't seem that clean. There was ingrained mould in the shower, the freezer had not been cleaned or defrosted and was full of ice. There were power sockets in the kitchen literally falling off the walls (dangerous, as near water), the power tripped every time we used the oven or more than 1 electric ring at a time. The washing machine was full of mould (we cleaned this before using it). The hot water was instantly scolding hot and dangerous for small children. (There should be a way to regulate water temperature to a safe temperature - it was way too hot and burned hands instantly) The inside of the wardrobes were cluttered with odd dirty blankets and old socks - from past guests, not a very inviting place to put your clean clothes. All pillows are feather and very old/musty. (synthetic pillows with pillow covers that can be washed regularly would be much more sanitary) The TV went off (due to poor internet connection we believe) every time we tried to watch something it would cut out part way through the program , which was a bit frustrating, so we didn't bother watching anything.
There were other minor niggles - but nothing that couldn't be put right easily. With an inventory and an update, this house could be really great and made a lot more comfortable for people staying in it.
