A Place in the Sun’s Scarlette hits out at ‘fussy’ couple for long ‘wish list’
A Place in the Sun's Scarlette Douglas has hit out at her guests for throwing a long list of requirements with a tight budget of £90,000.
Couple Steve and Helen, from North Wales, were looking for a holiday home in the southern region of Spain in Costa del Sol.
When they met with host Scarlette at a beach in the town of Torrox, they went over the things on their "wish list" – a two bedroom apartment, either by the sea or in a town.
The first property was close to the beach in the heart of the town, but Steve and Helen did not like the apartment sitting at the corner of the building next to a carpark entrance.
They found a potential contender as they reached further inland to a hillside complex, which offered them a large terrace and great sea views, but Steve complained of the difficult access to the apartment.
Unfortunately, they didn't like the third property because of the "dated" kitchen inside.
To help her house hunters to find a dream holiday home, Scarlette asked Steve and Helen: "So moving forward, what would you like to find from the next place?"
Helen said: "We'd like two bedrooms, a balcony that can fit four chairs round, somewhere that's nearer to the shops."
"Amenities are key, we've got to get you closer to a town, yeah?" Scarlette confirmed.
"Restaurants, bars and we've cracked it," Helen replied and Steve added: "We don't need a swimming pool."
The couple's wish list seemed to be getting longer and Scarlette had to remind them that there was a limit with their budget.

She told them: "No, and I have a budget. Remember, I am working with a budget here. The closer into the town, it is going to be more expensive and you're not going to have as much outside space."
Steve said they were willing to sacrifice one thing: "It doesn't have to be closer to the beach."
"Okay, but even getting closer into a town, into the action, it is still going to be more expensive," the host emphasised. "But I will do my very best for you.
Fans took it to Twitter and commented that they felt the frustration for Scarlette.
One wrote: "You can't have everything with the amount you're spending!"
"Blimey!" a second said. "These two are proper fussy. Up your budget then if you want a better property."
