Dear Peter, as you say the apartment is very well located having one of the best views and locations in Puerto de la Cruz. When you arrived the "fiestas" of Puerto de la Cruz were going on, that is why the autoscooters were there, they only come in the fiesta periods. Other guests actually like and appreciate living for once the essential fiesta of the town. This also happens in Carnaval and in Christmas time, however there are people that actually want to enjoy and book for this periods as there are once in a life experience and will not have a better location to enjoy the fireworks and the parades sitting with a nice glass of wine from the penthouse balcony. I imagine that at this periods it must be uncomfortable for you moving in a segaway wheelchair as there is quite an ambiance with people downstairs in the streets and restaurants. As for the shower, I checked and it is not dirty, it is that some paint from the bottom had fallen and it looked like dirty but it has been resolved as well as the bathroom sink that leaked when due to your unluckily reduced mobility you leaned on it and was quickly resolved by Hugo. The furniture is mainly IKEA and some design glass mirror tables that were actually designed specially for the apartment. Me and Sandra were not in the island at the time of your arrival and we did not do the check in, my brother Hugo is an exceptional guy but obviously did not show you how to use the television properly and we are sorry for this. As for the dog in the neighbors balcony, the owner as far as I know takes it out every morning and evening.
Peter, I am sorry that you did not enjoy your stay and I beg your pardon for not informing you of the fiestas but it is announced in the calendar and the apartment is in the heart of the old village centre.
Sandra and Eddie.
