dirty villa, didnt get deposit back
I again could not find anything wrong, the guest pointed out some grass on the floor by the patio doors - As the family were coming in and out bare foot from the lawn I was not surprised to find grass on the floor, she also complained about dust on a coffee table, this I examined closely but could not find any dust, I even ran my finger across the surface and still could not find any dust.
As it is very important to me to ensure all guests are happy, I sent my cleaner back the next day with the instruction to do whatever the guest required and not to leave until the guest was happy
My cleaner attended and in her words, went through the motions but did not actually do very much as the villa was clean
I contacted the guest again to make sure she was happy and she stated she was very happy.
at the end of the first week, I visited to clean the pool, the guests had a long friendly chat with me and all was good.
Regarding the deposit (this is what this is all about). The guest was e-mailed following departure and asked to supply either her bank details or her PayPal account for the refund of the security deposit.
After a week and no reply, I e-mailed again asking for the details to action the refund
Instead of sending me the details requested, the guest chose to send me a direct PayPal payment request.
I clicked on the request and made immediate payment of the amount requested which was 175€, this went through and the money was taken from my account and sent.
It then turned out, the guest had entered the wrong details when she sent me the request and instead of the money going to her, it went to another person in Canada
I have contacted PayPal several times to request a reclaim on the money sent but PayPal advise that they cannot do that via me, they can only action a claim by the person who originally sent the Payment request
I have advised the guest of this several times but all she seems to wish to do is to blame me for her error
Her review is clearly malicious as she has marked the review with 5 stars knowing this will mean it will be published bypassing the HomeAway review system.

Lovely villa, great location but room for improvement
Me and my family stayed for 4 nights 6th-10th April. We were greeted by Tony who worked for the property management company, he was very nice but it was obvious he wasn't familiar with the property. We asked about the heating/air con which he was unsure of how to use, made a phone call but even then couldn't explain the air con. He showed us around the ground floor of the property including the pool area, the pool had quite a lot of leaves in but it was surrounded by bushes so not surprising. He advised the pool had been cleaned the week previous but after later inspection it was was quite dirty. I would have expected this to be cleaned closer to our arrival but due to the cool weather and temperature of the pool we didn't use it much anyway. There were several sun beds available, 2 of which were damaged & put to one side.
After a while we realised the boiler hadn't been switched on which is something I think the property management should have done before leaving.
The villa was a good size but generally a bit tired. One of the tiles around the pool area was damaged which worried me with having an 18 month old with us and a chair on the veranda had rips marks in.
Before arriving I had enquired about keeping the villa on for a few extra hours the day we were leaving, I was advised we would have to pay €118 (charge for an extra nights stay). Out of our party of 23 people staying in 4 villas, we were the only ones having to vacate early. All others had been allowed to stay as long as they liked free of charge.
When comparing villas with the rest of our party, they advised their heating had been left on before they arrived as the weather had been cool. Other people's pools were cleaned & levels checked several times & another villa had also been provided with water/beers in the fridge ready for their arrival. I appreciate none of this is required but nice touches.
Overall the villa is in a great location, only mins from the bars & restaurants & provides a lovely view over the 2nd hole. The spacious outside area is perfect for children & keeping them away from the risks of the pool.
We've recently received our security deposit back (11 days later) without any problems as mentioned in the other review listed for this villa.
In reflection we had a great time and my only recommendation would be for more of a personal approach & a little touch up. We would definitely book again & recommend it to others looking for a spacious villa.
Thanks for having us
dirty villa, didnt get deposit back
My family have stayed on this resort several times and the resort is fantastic...that's why we keep returning but this particular villa was dirty on arrival and we didn't get our deposit back which made our holiday more expensive than we wanted to pay. Arrogant director...at least that's what he calls himself, don't book anything through this man's company
Activity and Interests
Our 3 bedroom detached villa is located on the 5 star Mar Menor Golf Resort which is only 10 minutes from the stunning beaches of the Mar Menor Sea and only 15 minutes from Murcia San Javier Airport.
The Villa has its own very private garden which includes a very large swimming pool. From the roof terraces you can look out of the golf course (Backs onto the 2nd green) and the resort towards the sea.
The beach side town of Las Alcazares is just 10 minutes down the road.
20 minutes drive away you come to the historic Roman Naval port of Cartagena with bags of history and character. The Marina is a must for a relaxing drink and snack watching the boats come and go. The oldest submarine is also here on the harbour side.
Dos Mares shopping centre is 15 minutes drive away and is open 365 days a year offering everything you could ever need.
The resort is also serviced by its own suppermaret and there is also a communal pool and bar complex open in the summer months.
Golf: The luxury resort has an outstanding golf course designed by Dave Thomas. Daily or weekly passes for golf are available. Golf facilities include a driving range and putting green, plus Spikes bar for a pre golf breakfast or a drink with fellow golfers.
Within 10 - 30 minutes drive there are many more top quality golf courses all designed but top golf pros.
