    “The house was difficult to find in the beginning, since the route was incorrectly transmitted by the organizer. Apart from that it has a great location in a neighborhood among other holiday houses.
    The house is big enough for 4 people. You spend most of your time outside. Unfortunately, there were a couple of flaws, which disturbed us more or less on holiday. The house does not have a normal toilet with sewage treatment plant, but is collected in a ground-buried container in the garden. At this point it was always wet during our complete stay. Unfortunately the place with the container was also right in front of the window of both bedrooms, so that a cloaca smell into the bedrooms. The owner looked at the problem, but did not do anything about it.
    Furthermore, we could only use 2 times in 2 weeks the dishwasher. This did not work afterwards. The landlord has also cared about this problem only half-heartedly. Since it was very windy during our stay, there was always dirt in the pool. Unfortunately, there was no landing net so we could clean the pool. On request was only answered, that the landlord himself has no landing net. In the second week was only once the pool cleaned, instead of the announced 2 times a week.
    The fence in the lower part of the property had been knocked down, so that everyone could simply go for a walk.
    Nevertheless, the holiday house was very nice, clean and tidy. There were several umbrellas, which we could also take with the beach. The equipment was sufficient for the holiday. Great was also, that the house had an air conditioning system.
    The holiday we had despite some deficiencies very good and we would recommend the holiday house.” The customer review has been automatically translated from German. Back to the original language

    “The pictures on the net correspond to how one finds the house. A house which is spacious, not pompous but very functional. In the kitchen you will find enough porcelain, cutlery, glasses etc ... All kitchen appliances worked, even if the dishwasher and washing machine are old. Although the mattresses in the bedrooms may be standard, but were still uncomfortable. In the one bedroom slipcovers were on the mattresses (felt like plastic), so you quickly sweating despite the air conditioner.

    From each bedroom you can go directly to a bathroom, which is very pleasant. The living room was large and the seating comfortable. The terrace invites you long to sit outside and watch the but rumlaufenden Salamander four rats (the house has a rural location! We enjoyed it not disturbed). The pool was clean and was serviced regularly (Tuesdays and Fridays). We found the garden and pool cleaning not particularly troublesome because the homeowner did this very cautiously. The sunbeds were functional, the conditions are very long in the tooth, but have served their purpose. This we had better but at cheaper homes in Portugal. For families with young children must also be noted that the pool is not fenced off and from the terrace of the house is not completely visible. But the plot is fenced and you can close the gate.

    Highly recommended is the air conditioning system to reserve. However, this costs 60 euros the week extra. stands in the terms and conditions of the owner in the display, you have to pay the extra cleaning on site and it is not included. The pity is that the amount is not specified. This was with us, and we learned on departure 35 euro. You also have to be swept and cleaned the house. Our perception is that we have the house also only relative swept. There were fresh sheets, for each of us a fresh, large bath towel and one each small fresh towel, two tea towels and fresh dishcloths, but even here we can tell from many years Portugal experience, we clean houses inhabited no extra pay costs for cleaning. Did not bother us that we had to clean the fridge when you arrive, and a lot of dishes, cutlery and kitchen cabinets, as these spots have or be anfühlten mildewed. The hood was very greasy. Have we roughly purified himself. The toilets smelled a lot like urine and looked it. In strainer shower drain hair was the predecessor. On the carpet in the living room were animal hairs. Perhaps all of us picky, but if a final cleaning has to be paid extra, it is our opinion in need of improvement.

    The location of the house is great. It is close to the N125, but does not hear this. The house is on a "mountain" and it is rural. In the time we stayed there for our holiday, we hardly heard or seen one of the few neighbors. Therefore, the recovery value was high. To reach the house you need definitely a car and an updated navigation system / app. The description which was sent to us by atraveo not true. Only fit the coordinates. Whereby our GPS did not know this. Therefore, make sure before smart.”

    “It is a spacious old house, the division is very pleasant. When committing a musty smell due to the humidity, Remedy only by vigorous ventilation, even in the furniture put the musty smell the removed things had to be aired between. The kitchen appliances, washing machine, dishwasher - rusty inside - needs a renovation. Other kitchen equipment works, but old. A shower is functional, it took forever to warm water came and then ran even massive, it was to take a shower no joy. It was very annoying that were carried out in our presence, we had breakfast under the terrace, garden work (3 hours), unfortunately we were dismissed with the statement, "what must be, must be ". This is not customer friendly and courteous. We admit we are spoiled because we have been traveling for years around the world and have always rented homes, according to the South of France this was just not fair to the information given and not recommended, we would like to report bad otherwise.”

    Comment from property owner Mr Motsch:
    “Thank you for your assessment as regards the musty you have witnessed it myself that we had 14 days rain. They would indeed, the air conditioner can book it and the house had beautifully warm and it would not smell musty. As for the 3 hour gardening, I can only say, if all vacationers would think so, the garden would sink into weeds. We can not buy every year new kitchen appliances, important is that they work. Otherwise you could not rent so cheap the house Casa Joia. In the house the price is right and the performance and we wichtig.D s one disturbs the other and that, all you can anyway not make it right.” The customer review has been automatically translated from German.

    bed linen feeling 's humidity and not very comfortable beds (spring mattress). Lack 'towels (1 small and 1 means per person). Coffee fully calcified.”

    Comment from property owner Mr Motsch:
    Thank you for your review, but what surprises me is that you not leave a comment at the CHECK IN where you showed you the house and passed. You could have call the same or the next day with us and we had some Amended. What we also according to your criticism (which is not but a suggestion) have also made. You can visit us anytime again but please remember, in April, it may still be wet and cold.
