Excellent Villa

  • 5 of 5

The villa was just perfect for our needs, lots of space inside and out with everything you need for a great holiday. Bonus with pool being heated, spent every day swimming.

Tias is just a lovely wee town and had everything you need, shops and restaurants being only 10 minutes from the busier Peurto Del Carmen.

Would go back to villa and area.

A wonderful family holiday

  • 5 of 5

I have just returned from a great holiday at Casa Katrina. Loads of room for two couples and a toddler with more bedrooms for bigger groups. Great location in Tias with shops and restaurants few minutes walk away or less than 10 minutes in a taxi for more night life. The property and pool are well maintained and there is parking outside. The owner was very friendly and helpful through the whole booking process. Always happy to help. Would recommend this Villa and we would stay again.

Disappointing

  • 2 of 5

We arrived on Friday 8th September 2017, on entering the inside of the villa we thought nice and clean (hence the 2 stars). Then we went out to the pool area FILTHY!! The pool looked green and misty, the area around the pool was filthy. We walked across the patio to dip our feet in the pool and our feet were black. In the corner of the pool area was a pile of junk, dirty deflated lilos, washing up bowl, filthy chairs stacked up against the wall etc. We got the mop and bucket out to see if we could clean the pool area (which is something you don't expect to do on holiday) this made no difference at all, it needed a pressure washer. We also noticed that there were no mattresses for the sunbeds, sunbeds are very uncomfortable without a mattress don't you think? We sat and had a drink outside then to top it all a cockroach appeared under the table YUCK!!

On the Saturday we decided we could not stay in such filth so we spent all day on the phone and websites to find alternative accommodation. Finally at 8pm on Saturday evening we found another villa. Sunday we moved out TWO DAYS OF OUR HOLIDAY WASTED AND LOTS OF EXTRA COST.

We informed Mr Cronin by email that we had vacated his villa and the reasons why.He replied that we did not give him chance to solve the problems before we moved. Well there should not have been problems in the first place should there!. The maintenance team had obviously not done there job properly. The picture on the website is no where near what we found..Mr Cronin said he would get photosfromf his maintenance team but it seems the team did not take any photos SURPRISE SURPRISE, after all why would they take photos of the mess. We took a photo of the grime and sent it to Mr Cronin but yet again he just said we didn't give him chance to solve the problems.We have stayed in lots of villas this one was the worst!

Owner's Response: About the review by Mr Strunk which I feel is unwarranted and totally fabricated and exaggerated. He has failed to mention that on his arrival at the villa he could not open the simple Key Safe Combination which is given to every client with explicit instructions for the front door key so instead of phoneing my maintenance team or me he went and asked my neighbours to try to open giving them the combination so I now have to change the four digit code to make property secure finally he done the right thing and phoned my maintenance who were there in less than half an hour to open the Key Safe . This is the first time in 3 years clients have not been able to open the Key Safe. His comment was ! How did you do that ! which my maintenance replied put in the four digit combination without a word of Thanks from Mr Strunk. This proves that with a simple phone call or Email to my maintenance or myself any complaints he thought he had would have been dealt with within the hour quite simply. Instead of he phoning me or my maintenance team to complain to what issues he had with the patio area not being satisfactory which anybody else I feel would have done Mr Strunk decided to vacate my villa which I feel was unwarranted and tototally unnesercerary without given the opportunity for my maintenance to come round and deal with his complaint about patio area especially as he himself stated that the villa was nice a clean on his arrival which would have made more sense. Mr Strunk had no problem complaining with numerous Emails and texts to me after he vacated of which I answered every one with the same reply saying I was sorry he felt he had issues with the patio area of which I replied why did he not phone or Email me or my maintenance first to deal with quickly before he decided to vacate which I felt not warranted. He did send me one photo of the patio area which was taken from inside the lounge even blowing up the picture I could not see a really big problem as anybody knows Lanzarote you can get Colimas ( mini sands storms) now and again which leaves a fine dust as for the one cockroach he saw these are again common in Lanzarote as its tropical climate not like the little indoor ones as in UK. The swimming pool is checked and PH levels taken every week my pool guy who knows his job and clorine kept at correct levels I have a lot of familys with children. Im sorry Mr Srunk felt he had to vacate but with 26 5 star reviews on the website I have no more to say. Paul.

Spacious villa in quiet area

  • 4 of 5

Spacious villa, ideal for large families or groups. As mentioned in earlier reviews there are a few repairs needed but I am sure these will be remedied now that they have been reported to the owner. We found Tias itself very quiet with very little to do so would recommend a car if planning to stay here, buses to Puerto del Carmen run every hour at a cost of 1.40 euro per person, taxis cost about 8 euros.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the nice review sorry about the problems you had mentioned and reported which are now being rectified which only occured a couple of days before arrival. As for Tias town its all according what you want out of a holiday but there are plenty of Restaurants and Bars to choose from within easy walking distance and much more resonable than Peurto Del Carmen which is only 5 mins away if you want more nightlife and as there are plenty of Taxes and Buses to take you there and further if you did not want the bother of hireing a car. Although you can get Car hire from less than £ 100.00 per week. Hope to see you again.

A little worn

  • 3 of 5

Overall happy with the house,just,a few pointers to others who are thinking about hiring, although air conditioning is shown in photos , you are not allowed to use ,the dishwasher was not working,pool cover is ripped,yes there is a beautiful bear of a dog,to the rear of the property,so gentle, the problem is to the left of the property there are 3 dogs ,who bark a lot,and with no air conditioning the windows had to stay open all night, not a lot of sleep had!,the family who looks after the property are very nice and chatty,,I really don't normally complain about things, just want to make people aware of a few issues we had before they book

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review. I am sorry you had a couple of issues about my villa. The villa is not advertised on the website with Air Con which is reflected in the price normally the villa is nice and airy but I know it has been exceptionally hot this August. The Dishwasher had a problem the day before the client arrived so there was no time to replace it over there stay as was the pool cover as it is difficult to get work done in August as it is Spanish holidays but will be both rectified as soon as possible. Once again sorry about these problems but hope to see you again in LANZAROTE.
