I am glad you had such a pleasant seven-day stay at home. Thanks for your comments for networks of mosquitoes, but I fear that I must say that is the best in the market, like all other equipment of the House. Perhaps the most meticulous supervision and explanation to the children that screens for mosquitoes are not games to play with could prevent the damage. The switches as you probably realized are ABB brand impuls series, (with operation indicator), i.e. the top of the market. If nevertheless, you know better standard switches, I would be grateful to receive your suggestion.
The estate as you realized is fully fenced with a stone wall and features an outdoor remote controlled gate. I must remind you that the house is located in the countryside and the eventual of a visit by dogs, or cats or ferrets, etc. cannot be ruled out, especially when we do not take care so that we keep the gate closed!!…….
I do thank you for your comments regarding the best equipment for the kitchen. In this regard, I'll add another two (2) to the (4) wooden spoons that already exist along with the (4) plastic ones...... Nonstick pans are there, but it seems that they were not considered enough, along with the stainless steel ones, though of course, the dishwasher takes care of all equally.
Finally I should like to note, that despite a 10 days time credit, that you asked me, in order to arrange the damage that your children caused to the mosquitoes screens, since on your departure you declared unable to cover the amount in cash, promising to credit my account, I have not yet received your credit to my bank account, with the amount of Euro 200 (Two hundred). I still believe that you will honor your obligation the soonest possible.
On this occasion, I attach to my comment reply, the review of Mrs. Caroline Law group, who stayed at the property, through (Hidden by Airbnb) , before your arrival.

We spent a week at the Mani House in August, and it exceeded our expectations in every way. The house was far more stylish, elegant, spacious and comfortable that we had imagined. It is beautifully built and immaculately maintained. I am surprised that it has anything less than five-star reviews. The pictures do not do justice to the interior, or even to the views. The view to the sea is stunning, as depicted, but there are also lovely views over the nearby village and to the mountains behind; nor do you see in the pictures that the house is surrounded by lovely mature oak trees and olive groves: the surroundings are charming. Even in August, the roads were quiet; the house is set back from a tiny lane and the only sound was the chirping of the cicadas, although there are houses on the neighboring plots. The pool is gorgeous, very big, with lovely water, barely chlorinated and cool enough to be refreshing, but warm enough to swim for ages, even at night (when it can be lit up). The children spent hours in it. Nearby beaches range from small rocky coves which are almost empty even in high season to huge the sandy bays of Skoutari. These seemed mainly to be visited by Greek families, which gave everything a relaxed, low key atmosphere. Even the most popular beaches were not packed, there was no traffic on the roads, and we had no trouble getting tables in the beach-side tavernas. If you are looking for a house of this size, with a pool, in a stone's throw of the sea, I think you would be lucky to find a better one in this part of the Mani. The only downside for visitors out of the Eurozone is that George asks that the large security deposit being paid in euros, which means you are likely to incur an extra cost on the currency conversion. (I should stress, however, that we got the money straight back at the end of our stay, with no problems!) George was helpful and efficient, and though he was on site in our week (because the caretaker was away) we enjoyed total privacy and only saw him when we knocked on his door for advice.
