You like the villa but don't book it, BECAUSE

Please note this is only my opinion for when I want to rent a villa and you may think there are petty

Tax not included in the rate advertised.

Price quoted in Dollars when the owners are English & live in England.

Advertising spa/jacuzzi only to find it's either in the bath or it's an hot tub.

Advertising a safe in villa but you have to pay management company to use it.

Only take bookings Saturday to Saturday.

Over the top price for pool/spa heat to what other owners charge.

Do any of the above apply to you also ?

Big No NO for me is when you cant see the view from the pool, always makes me think they are trying to hide something like too close neighbours or a rotten view.

I always try and book a UK price as it makes things so much easier for payment ect. They are shooting themselves in the foot by only doing Sat-Sat booking.

I never look at ones in dollars, don't know why, probably laziness.

If they don't have a picture of the pool then no way!

this is always the first thing I look for too. I like to see a villa room plan as well - no idea why but i suppose it helps me visualise how it will fit us! and usually try and pick it out on a map/satellite view to see what is around it!
