Maison de vacances Villa Mestalla ★★★
Costa Blanca »
Bra läge i lugnt område. Fin trädgård med pool. Lite omodernt inomhus men helt ok, dock lite hårda sängar som saknade bäddmadrasser.
We stayded 16 days in this house. We lived in the upper floor. It was spacious and nice furnished. There was on big veranda and big balcony, but sun never shined to the balcony because of the huge pine tree in the front jard. Because of that tree whole the front yard and the pool area were also shady. The pool was very small but very deep and very cold so I think it's not suitable for small kids. Because of that tree there was also lots of birds on the yard and the yard was also full of birds excrement. Soon our car became soiled and our hands were soiled when getting in to the car. We had to wash the car and drove it on the other side of the wall to the rest of the time. I'm afraid that pool may also be soiled because of the birds. The rest of the yard and garden was very beautiful and sunny. If you like, you can grill or cook in the outside or in the summer kitchen at the 1st floor. But because we lived in the 2nd floor it was not nice to run up and down. Because of the stairs, I think this is not suitable for small kids, old people or people with disabilities. The 1st floor rooms were fusty. You can do laundry there but I personally could never live or sleep there. Also another bathroom in the 2nd floor (there was 2 of them) was so fusty that we couldn't use it. The location was perfect to go up on to the mountains hiking or biking, but if you mostly want to go to the city or the beach its quite far away. XXX and XXX are the nearest supermarkets down on the hill (<1 km). There was other rental villas also in the area and in our case that meant disturbance by neighbours with loudly music and shouting (I had to call the police in a one night because of the noise at the midnight). If we ever are coming back we want an apartment with sunny terrace and big pool area. This mountain cottage was not for us. The owner visited several times to do garnening and clean the pool. He was very helpful and friendly. Also with Intrehome everything is everytime so easy. But in 16 days you would need some cleaning. We found a poor vacuum-cleaner to clean the floors, but it's not enough. Also the cupboard should be cleand and remove all that old food. The was very small ants in the kitchen...
