TERRIBLE EXPERIENCE, BE WARNED. If you are foolish enough to pay the high costs for this apartment and also the overcharge for cleaning please do a handover on arrival and departure with them soy can not have any false allegations of need for extra cleaning or supposed damage thrown at you in your absence. The apartment itself was expensive and cleaning costs were high. We were bemused to get bombarded with a threatening text off the owner 1 day into the trip saying in her opinion we had an extra guest staying, this was due to our friend who lives in spain dropping us off, this is a total nonsense because he lives in his villa in Altea with his wife, it was our opinion the owner was after more money off us. This was bad enough but a week after the trip the owner requested to charge us for extra cleaning ( on top of extortionate rate already paid) and what they said was a broken curtain pole. They sent no evidence of need for extra cleaning and a picture of an old broken pole of some sort which had obviously been broken for some time.
We treated the apartment as we would our own home and kept it immaculate and even gave a deep clean on departure so again this leads us to believe that they just try for more money so please avoid. They then said it was for cigarette smoke fumes, when none of our party actually smoke cigarettes.
I don't know whether they have homophobic tendencies but the host/cleaner wasn't too receptive to four guys staying together when we arrived. We were rushed through an intro and shown where to leave the keys on departure, we were left to try and source amenities.
We had to continually fix the toilet whilst we were there but other than that there were certainly no incidents and the curtain pole was a total fabrication and with regards to the extra cleaning it is an insult to our integrity that she is attempting to get more money out of us, we are 4 house proud guys whose domestic skills are bordering on OCD so really are insulted by these money making claims, but the alarm bells should have rang when she tried by text for an imaginary 5th guest.
This experience has made us think again about using Airbnb and we would certainly not be terrorised by this greedy landlady again.
If you do get enticed by the nice view and book this, Please take your own checklist and agree with them and get them to sign on arrival and departure, we fell into the trap of "just leaving the key" and again they are trying to get more money out of us.
Overall she is trying to get £90 for cleaning which is a total disgrace given we are 4 cleanaholics, who were hardly in but still cleaned every morning and night and gave deep clean on departure.
