    I spent 2 weeks with Pilar, to be honest, I can't describe it.
    we became friends and she took care of me all the time as her son.
    The room and the house are big and very very clean, the terrac (my favorite place) has a nice view, who wants to visit Malaga. I recommend pilarrrr! (If you want information about the city, ask Pilar) thanks pilar, I hope to see you soon.

    one more thing for me Pilar is “the queen of the Costa del Sol”.

    Pilar ist eine sehr schlecht organisierte und informierte Frau, sie hat behauptet, dass zum Zimmer ein privates Badezimmer gehört, was nicht der Fall war, um ins Badezimmer zu gelangen, musste man an einem anderen Zimmer und Personen vorbei. Der Kleiderschrank war die Hälfte mit ihrer Kleidung befüllt und unsere Klamotten waren die ganze Zeit in unseren Koffer und das Bett (Einzelbett) war sehr schmal und unkomfortabel, dass man beim Drehen aufpassen musste, nicht runterzufallen. Nach 2 Tage als meine Frau und ich nach dem Internet und WiFi-Zugangsdaten gefragt haben, dann hat sie uns erst gegeben. Das Zimmer war leider sehr klein und schlecht belüftet und daher höllenheiß.

    Als Tourist und Urlauber möchte man gern ja auch wissen, wo man gut bei einheimischen essen und welcher Ortschaften man ja besichtigen könnte, sie hat leider keinerlei Informationen über ihre Stadt und Umgebung.

    Am 3. Tag konnten wir leider dort nicht mehr aushalten und wir haben in einem Hotel ein Zimmer für den gleichen Preis gebucht.

    Als wir Pilar auf die Problematik angesprochen haben, hat sie sich kaum interessiert und nicht einsichtig ein kleines Teil des Betrages zurück zu zahlen, sie hat sogar mein Rückgeld einbehalten, es war nicht viel aber es geht hier um einen richtigen Umgang und Benehmen.

    Pilar und ihre Wohnung sind meines Erachtens sehr mangelhaft und für uns durchgefallen, ich würde sie niemals weiter empfehlen.

    I regret that this guest has not had the ability to see the information and photos shown on the page, so I am obliged to respond to you as far as your opinion is concerned.
    THE ROOM ... measures 400 x 2.75 meters and has 2 cabinets with two doors each, and each of them measures 100 cm, width x 200 height.
    In effect, one of the cabinets is private and was CLOSED !.
    When the guest arrived I told him what was the wardrobe for his clothes, however they FORCED THE PRIVATE PART UNTIL OPEN IT. From this private closet they took out a fan that they had connected night and day.
    If they had told me that they were hot, I would have given it to them!
    The closet for the guests, is 190 high x 100 wide with two large built-in drawers.
    I also told him that when they had emptied their bags I could keep them in the storage room. (They did not say anything to me).
    The window ... 1.20 high x 100 wide, (and it can be opened ... ;-)
    The beds ... ARE TWO INDIVIDUALS! as seen in the photograph, of 1.90 x 90, cm. Each, and the mattresses are new (less than 1 year)! Surely two separate beds are not the most suitable for a couple, but the room corresponds to the photograph on the page.
    Oh! The beds can be moved so they can be put together and make a 190 x 180 cm. 
    The bathroom ... PRIVATE, measures 290 long x 190 wide :-). OF NEW LAMENT THAT THIS LORD DOES NOT KNOW THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN PRIVATE BATHROOM, AND BATHROOM EN SUITE. (As a Homestay ... exclusive for the guest)
    Only one wall separates the room from the bathroom. From the door of the room you can open the bathroom door.
    The people, (as he writes) I assume that it refers to my son, who has his two rooms in the same part of the house as the guests. :-)
    Internet and WiFi, of course I gave it to him at the same time he asked me. I apologize for not giving it at the same moment he came to my house (although he would not have asked me).
    I also apologize for not accepting the invitations to accompany them to the different places they were, but I understood that the wife preferred it.
    Your allowance (€ 6) that I wanted to give you at the time and he said ... it does not matter, the topic remained that way because at that moment they went out to the street.
    They arrived on the 13th DAY IN THE MORNING AND THEY WENT OUT WITHOUT PREVIOUS COMMUNICATION and without saying a word THE DAY 18 in the evening, I found out about their absence because they sent me a WhatsAPP A LATER TO COMMUNICATE THAT THEY HAD BEEN GOING TO ANOTHER PLACE, AND THAT THEY WOULD COME TO THE NEXT DAY to talk to me.
    In my opinion, the badly organized and badly informed person has been him, Timo. It is demonstrated with your attitude and behavior.

    ¡Fue un placer quedarme con Pilar! Ella es una anfitriona gentil y amable, la casa siempre está limpia, y además, siempre estuvo feliz de ayudarme con mi español. Recomendaría encarecidamente este lugar a cualquiera.

    Owner Ms. Pilar is a lady with passions.
    If you have any problem, talk to her.
    This home is located in center of all attractions.
    You almost can go to most hot spot by walking.
    If you want to groceries, it's on next door.
    Bus, 3 mins walk.
    Convenient for everything.
    Her kitchen is great too. She allows you manage your meals.

    Tuve una estancia absolutamente maravillosa con Pilar. Yo estaba realmente triste cuando tuve que irme porque realmente disfrutaba de conocer a Pilar. Ella me llevó para lugares bonitos, me ayudó con mi español, e habló conmigo sobre a su vida. Encanté quedarme en la casa de Pilar. El apartamento también era precioso y limpio y tenía una terraza donde Pilar ponía una luz, así que yo podía trabajar fuera por la noche. La ubicación también era genial, puedes caminar a todos los lugares de interés. Quería quedarme por mas tiempo! Espero un día verla de nuevo.

    I had an absolutely wonderful stay with Pilar. I was actually very sad when I had to leave because I was really enjoying getting to know Pilar. She took me to different places to eat and see sights, helped me with my Spanish, and spent time talking with me. I loved staying at her place. The apartment was also beautiful and clean and it had a terrace where Pilar put a light for me so that I could work outside at night. The location was also perfect, you could walk to everything. I wanted to stay longer. I hope to see her again one day.
