We were surprised to discover that we were in a different house from the one in the ad. This was disappointing, as it didn't have a pool or terrace or pizza oven, and it was not as attractive as the one in the photos, which is the one we thought we were paying for. In the messages we exchanged when we booked, Jose did not make it clear that he was booking us into a different place from the one in the ad. He mentioned a different name, but said it in a way that made it sound as if he was referring to the house in the ad. We were not shown any photos of the new place or given any description of it, so we did not realise we were being booked in to a less attractive place without a pool, until we arrived.
The place we ended up in was not bad. It was bigger, but we didn't need the extra room as there was only two of us. It was still in the same village, Tuineje, which was peaceful and calm and rural (you can hear cockerels and dogs in the morning and there are donkeys nearby). There's a restaurant and food shop within walking distance.
The house was clean, and it had a hob, a fridge, a microwave and all the essential kitchen equipment. We lit candles to make the lighting feel nicer. The only problem was the shower, which didn't really work. It produced a small trickle of hot water, but not enough water to actually shower in, so we had to fill up buckets and use a jug. For this reason, we felt the house was a bit overpriced. But it wasn't terrible.
Jose left us locally produced eggs, olive oil and wine, which was great. He also brought us some more clean towels half way through our stay.
Tuineje is a good place from which to explore the island. A car is essential. We drove all over the island and found amazing empty beaches and beautiful scenery.
