You came here in May also looking for a review on a website. You want people to spend their valuable time reviewing your sites but you cannot return the favour? Sorry but that's not really fair.

Some people put a HUGE effort into answering your other questions as well. With 2 websites and several properties, surely you have something to contribute?

I'll no doubt get bashed for being so harsh but this forum is only so successful because people help each other with advice.

Hello

I've just had a quick look...

My first impression was 'fab pictures - looks like a great place to visit'. After that though, I was left wondering where it was - I thought, as everything's in German, it was Northern Germany, but later guessed Croatia as you have some Croatian links at the bottom. I was specifically looking, though... not sure a potential guest would do that.

Do you have any other languages on there? I couldn't find any, though perhaps you're only intending on marketing to Germans, so it may not be necessary. As a Dutch speaker, I could kind of wade my way through the German but got confused as to whether you have 1 villa or several... perhaps this might have been clearer if I had been reading it in English.

Like a lot of people now, I was looking at your site on my smartphone and the drop down menu unfortunately scrambled with the text on the homepage when I had my phone in 'portrait', however, it did seem to read okay when I rotated my phone.

As I said, it was only a quick look... others can probably give more comprehensive advice. I liked the 300 days of sunshine bit, by the way... definitely not like Northern Germany!

Hi kevsboredagain,

thank you for your remarks although I am still figuring out where is the frustration coming from.

If you think I violated some rules of this forum please turn to the administrator. Don't bother yourself with my posts and their frequency. Use your valuable time to get rid off your frustrations instead.

All the best and get well soon!

It's not a rule. It's called etiquette. People follow it out of respect for others.

It is in English too - if you go to the top left there is a drop down box allowing you to select English or German.

I must admit that I do find the site a bit confusing. When the most prominent word on the home page is 'villa' you tend to think it's the whole house that's up for rent and it's only much later that it becomes obvious we're talking about apartments. Personally I would make sure that my home page had a banner headline speaking of 'magical holiday apartments right by the sea' so as to leave no room for doubt.
