We were staying with Gillian O who has also written a review and I would like to have my say.

The villa is large and could be in my mind a very nice place to stay BUT:- all of the furniture is very dated and it felt like something my Great Grandmother would have owned (and I'm 58) it made the place feel very gloomy especially the downstairs bedroom, we nicknamed it the room of gloom.

Good points - when the fridge broke down overnight we did lose a fair bit of food and the owner did replace it within a few hours after we contacted him. The next day the pumps to the swimming pool failed and the pool went murky, again a maintenance man was sent and he had the pumps running later that day.

Bad points, we were given an arrival time of no earlier than 3pm we actually arrived at 4.30 pm, just after the housekeepers had arrived we eventually managed to walk into the villa near 6pm,just what we needed after setting of from our hotel in London at 5am that morning and with a 2 1/2 year old. The owner was contacted by the daughter of our friends and she was met with an aggressive attitude from the owner on the phone.

When we looked around the house we were very disappointed with standard of upkeep, my wife and I had a villa in Cyprus so we know what standard a guest should expect when paying a lot of money for a holiday. As Gillian states there were numerous knobs missing from the kitchen units, the kitchen sink had been replaced at some stage and reinstalled with copious amounts of silicon which now looks like it is covered in a mould. There was the barest of kitchen utensils provided. The downstairs bathroom needed condemning the shower curtain did not fit around the shower and allowed the water to flood the bathroom and as for the state of the cleanliness of the curtain I could have grown potatoes in the dirt on the bottom of the curtain, the whole room was grubby and not well maintained.

The pictures are a total misrepresentation of what you are going to walk into, as Gillian says the umbrellas are broken, the nice bedding shown in the bedrooms isn't there and the curtain tiebacks are gone.

The listing was not accurate, it was not well maintained and we did not get good customer service with the exception of the fridge replacement and the pool repair. I would not recommend this property to anyone until there has been an upgrade. I feel sorry for our friends who booked this expensive holiday and they were very embarrassed when we all went in.

arrived at 16.30. we were informed that we could occupy the villa from 15.00, we arrived at 16.30 to find that the cleaners were still there and we would not be able to get in until 18.00. (we had a 2 year old with us and had been travelling from 05.00am) When the owner was called he was very defensive and rude.

The villa looked nothing like the photo's, with broken light switches split rubber on the fridge Door knobs missing.. The down stairs shower curtain and tray had brown stained and looked disgusting. No locks on either bathroom door.No plug for the bath.

The fridge eventually stopped working we lost lots of money worth of food that was ruined.

Then the pool became murky, the filters had stopped.

The one star I have rated is that the fridge was replaced and the pool was repaired, however we lost a days use waiting for it to become fit to use. The lovely sun umbrellas in the picture looks clean and bright in fact they were gray stained and one holder was in half. Did this spoil our holiday.in a word yes. We had come to celebrate a family birthday so had great company, but did we get a taste of luxury, no. Don't go to Villa Rosa. The details are totally misrepresented.

Owner's Response: Regarding the rating given to this villa, it is totally "misrepresented". Firstly it is important to refer that this is a standard villa not a luxury villa and therefore it is priced accordingly. Nowhere is it mentioned that it is a luxury villa. With regards to the cleaning upon arrival, the first week of July was extremely busy and therefore there was a delay in getting the villa ready, however 45 minutes after we were advised that the villa was not ready this matter was solved. When the fridge broke down, it was immediately replaced by a brand new one (it is important to refer that the clients informed that the freezer was still working so we don't understand how "lots of food was ruined"). Due to the extremely high temperatures the Algarve was experiencing, the pool water started to go murky, however as soon as the clients informed of his occurrence the pool man was sent immediately to the villa and the problem was sorted out . Keys are not placed on doors for safety reasons. The other problems were never brought to our attention during the clients stay and therefore it was impossible to sort them out if we were unaware of their existence. In the meantime all of these situations have been sorted out. Lastly we would like to mention that this house has been rented out over the past ten years and most of our clients are repeaters so it is difficult to understand the one star rating given by this client. Actually it is ironic that just the week before we got an email from a client that stayed there for two weeks and gave the villa an excellent review.
