Those holidaymakers stayed in the flat exactly one year ago i.e. in September 2014, Why wait one year to write the review?
I cannot admit that a year ago my 8 cats were out of control because 4 of them are always indoors having 4 toilets at their disposal. They are all trained not to cross over the gate leading to the flat upstairs. The other 4 have the front and back gardens at their disposal. Perhaps a cat hissed because it got hit. I cannot remember the incident about the bed because it never occurred again.
I doubt that cats toilet residues were to be seen but yes the cleaner did find some on the roof terrace but again action was taken and it did not happen again. I think that it may have been a stray visiting. Spiders are very quick at making a web. The pool is vacuum cleaned weekly but on a windy day leaves can be found floating on the surface.
It was found that since we are on a crest of a hill air conditioning is not a necessity, especially late in September 2014, it is expensive to run and to instal but I shall have it for 2016. We do not suffer from mosquitos but should one get into the flat I have a mosquito net, sprays, electric burners, electric plugin devices etc.
I cannot remember the move to the hotel, it would have been the first such occurrence since I came to Spain.
I like to beleive, confirmed by many clients, some coming yearly, that I offer very good value for money, I have made many friends and appreciate to be informed of anything negative like this review, even if one year late. He obviously has a better memory than me.

“Just what we wanted”
Reviewed 22 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

We visited Feb 15 half term. The transport links are excellent and it only took 22 minutes on the train from the airport. The property is very private and we greatly enjoyed the solarium. We found the accommodation to be clean and well equipped. The UK TV facility was ideal for staying-in on the colder Feb evenings. Andre couldn’t have been more helpful and is a very nice chap. We intend to return.

We are lucky to have found this well located property in the best spot of the Costa del Sol and that it is so appreciated by the holiday makers. We keep our prices as low as possible to ensure maximum occupancy, thus pleasing as many visitors as possible with some returning every year.

“What a lovely holiday”
Reviewed 10 October 2013 for a stay in August 2013

I was really looking forward to my solo break and I was not disappointed. The weather was sunny every day, and Andre's lovely pool was fantastic. Of course I had it to myself, what a luxury! Andre meets all his guests who arrive by train, and immediately whisks them off to a well stocked reasonably priced supermarket to stock up with all the food and drink you'll need. Tip, either have a lot of euros or a debit card to hand to pay for it all. Take advantage of this as the local supermarkets closer to the apartment are nowhere nearly as good.
I went wanting a nice quiet break and I got just that. Andre is a real sweetie, he's about if you want him, and not if you don't. The apartment itself is fab, so well laid out, everything you need there, and the outside space that comes with it is wonderful, the roof area, and another terrace of your own. The pictures Andre had on his ad are authentic and are a true reflection of the apartment and the area. For British visitors, there's Sky, and you can have net access, so bring your laptop if you want to, I will on my next visit. I cannot recommend this gem highly enough for the price. The apartment is perfect for a couple, a solo traveller like myself, and maybe 2 friends who don't mind sleeping in the same room. Definitely not for anyone who would have difficulty with a lot of stairs!

It would be better if the number of actual steps is not given,since not proven, and that 70 is replaced by "some". The steps can however be avoided by walking 10 minutes along a partly winding road at no discomfort.
