Question Private villas to rent-WiFi search request

I would like to suggest that WiFi is included in the advance search options for the properties advertised on this web site. Trawling through each villas details is a bit tedious.
Only two years ago I would have scoffed at the need for WiFi when on holiday but no longer; with two teenagers needing to do some revision on half term hols and a self employed husband who has clients who go elsewhere if he takes more than a day to respond to emails, for us Wifi is a must for a happy holiday. We've spent too many holidays looking for wifi cafes, spending money on drinks we didnt want and early morning drives to the square in Pollensa to use the free wifi. Yes that was us sat on the bench at 8am.

This year I'm not dealing with teenagers having Facebook withdrawal, gone are the innocent days of "familytime" I'm booking WiFi so properties with it will get my interest, don't know what others think?

Yes this option is definitely coming. We are currently working on various enhancements for the main website & primarily for the Rentals. Wifi search is included. I don't want to commit to a date as I'm dependant on other people but should be within the next few weeks.

As mentioned above, the Search option IS coming for our Rental properties. But it would be a shame to avoid properties that may be just right for you in every other way just because they don't offer Wifi. The alternative is to look at wifi rental which only costs you an extra 39.90 EUR a week AND you can take the router with you (it is tiny & fits in your pocket!) when you are out & about!

Default Cold Spots

Funny enough the Sunday Times, no less, did an article regarding this issue a few weeks back. They said the last 10 years has been about trying to find "hot spots" to use your phones/computers whilst on holiday.....they said the next 10years will be about finding "cold spots"....(I know i'm using mine now) - we really do need to get away from this technology now and then otherwise our brains will frazzle.

Note for 'Pollensa'
As well as the wi-fi being included in search options for rental properties it would also be of great help if there could be more clarity regarding 'Bathrooms'.
There is a great tendancy to advertise properties with, for instance, 2 Bathrooms.
On looking deeper or looking at various photo's, etc., it is quite apparent that many of these so called bathrooms are in fact 'Shower Rooms' - with NO BATH at all.
Now this may seem slightly pedantic to some, but I'm sure there are many wives (in particular) out there who like a bath and not a shower after a long day on the beach, etc.
So would it be possible to indicate 'BATHROOMS' as separate from 'SHOWER ROOMS'.
Many people must be disappointed when entering a rental property to find '2 Shower Rooms' when probably expecting a 'Bathroom and a Shower Room'.
