Wonderlike huis met goeie fasiliteite.

Villa del Mar was 'n wonderlike ondervinding vir ons. Die huis was groter en mooier as wat ons verwag het, en het 'n wonderlike vloei gehad. Die huis was modern en die swembad, jacuzzi en elektroniese media fasiliteite was wonderlik. Halfpad deur ons verblyf het die eienaar ons gekontak om te hoor of alles reg is aan ons kant, en ons het dit baie waardeer. Ons sal die huis sterk aanbeveel.

Wonderful house with good facilities.

Villa del Mar was a wonderful experience for us. The house was bigger and nicer than we expected, and had a great flow. The house was modern and the pool, jacuzzi and electronic media facilities were great. Halfway through our stay the owner contacted us to see if everything was ok on our end, which we really appreciated. We would highly recommend the house.

We had a lovely weekend at Villa Del Mar. There were one or two snags, but Laurence was great and responded immediately.

The cleaning service did not provide toilet rolls in the house, but Laurence has undertaken to speak to them about this. He has also agreed to attend to the Jacuzzi which did not reach optimum temperature. It would also be helpful if there were a few more cleaning aids in the kitchen - perhaps a mop and some good quality washing up liquid.

Villa del Mar is a stunning house, however there were a few downfalls after arrival.

The outdoor lights where the pool and jaccuzzi are situated do not work, so we hardly sat outside at night because it was way too dark. Too little dirt bags and toilet rolls were given for the number of days we had booked for. There is an alarm that was very complicated. The jaccuzzi wasn't heating up, I contacted the landlord and a video was sent, and we eventually got it right. The main heated pool was cold for the 4 days we spent there. We received a long email after payments had been made with rules and regulations which some I was okay with and others that were not to my liking.

Hi Zayaan thanks for your feedback. I wished you had discussed the issues with me prior to checking in or at the time. I did come out to fix the wifi and tv which was as a result of your children pulling all the plugs out to play games. The light unfortunately was a bulb issue . I believe two rolls is toilet paper per bathroom sufficient. Two black bags should last a week as this is what municipality will collect

From the beginning when the owner mixed up the booking dates and we had to check in a day late, this experience was a disaster.

The owner confirmed with website our change of dates but the day before when he sent an sms I realised he had us checking in a day late. The address on the website says 122 Disa Road but the house is at 3996 Disa Road. I had to request a location. The house is nice but had not been cleaned properly. There were no cleaning products available, an old mop and no bucket to use with the mop. 1 toilet roll per toilet and 6 dishwasher tabs for 8 people - 6 days. The first evening the gas ran out while I was cooking dinner with food on the stove. When I messaged the owner he said he would come and check in the morning. When I replied that I was cooking dinner his reply was "Excuse me!". The spa pool went green and the outside rubbish bin was so full that we had nowhere to put our rubbish bags. When I messaged the owner his reply was sorry the house is not serviced and that we have to buy our own cleaning products. The day before check out was stage 6 loadshedding and the morning of check out the power was off until 8am. It was impossible to check out by 10am and get all of the dishes done, house cleaned and packed. The owner complained that I had not requested a late check out and sent harassing messages while we were busy trying to pack and clean up. I would not recommend this house to anyone wanting a hassle free holiday. Most of the the kitchen things are either broken or missing parts, the inside and outside furniture is stained and the neighbours were partying until the early hours of the morning.

Villa del Mar 's response

This guest was highly upset by the change of dates incident on her booking, which was caused jointly by the booking platform and me, not confirming that the booking platform had changed the dates on her booking in the calendar, which they had not. As a result and from the beginning she was hostile and aggressive. She behaved badly, being abusive and aggressive to me, my neighbour who tried to help, and the co-host of this property during her stay. I believe this review is a malicious and personal attack on me, and aimed to cause damage to the reputation and well-being of the business and has nothing to do with the property. I have been hosting at this property for two and a half years and hosted one hundred and eight guests. I currently have a 4.9-star ad 9.7-star ranking on other platforms. You can see the reviews on this site also are exemplary.

In preparing for guests, we have the same staff and use the same check-in and check-out protocol for all guests. Cleaning materials, linen, towels, hand towels, toilet paper and paper towels are all provided. Two toilet rolls per bathroom and sunlight liquid, Handy Andy and 1 dishwashing tablet per day are provided, with two black bags. The Verimark broom and mop plus bucket are always in the cupboard. We provide enough of the essentials for the period of your stay.

Yes, the guest contacted me the day before check out insisting on me resupplying the house with all cleaning materials. Her statement was “she wasn’t prepared to spend any money on these items as at the exorbitant price this should be included”. This made no sense and I at the time suggested that if she wanted the house serviced, I would get someone at a fee of R350 for the day.

Indeed, the gas did run out after 22:00 one evening and I suggested that I come first thing in the morning to replace it. When she stated she was needing to cook at 22:20 in the evening, I went over and replaced it with my neighbour within 15 minutes, and exchanged it within 15 minutes, I would like any guest reading this review to look at all the other reviews to realise that this one is unlike all the other impeccable reviews I have received before and after this guest. In fact, the guests after her have booked again for December this year. The guest further refused to communicate with me regarding check out and finally vacated the premises at 12:22 knowing another guest was checking in at 15:00 and knowing that they should have vacated at 10:00. I was ignored totally. Her behaviour at check out was extremely rude and obnoxious towards my neighbour. I believe her statements are false, defamatory, and libellous and totally devoid of truth.

Tranquil, such a spoil to just get away from the hustle and buzz of the city.

The house was big and spacious, very tech savvy. There is more than enough space for 8 people. We enjoyed the pool and hot tub and the property was safe for our small dog.

Spacious house that can accommodate the whole family. Felt pampered and relaxed spending time in the pool and jacuzzi.

From the moment you walk into the spacious house with it's stackable doors that open up to the pool and jacuzzi area, you start to feel relaxed. All the rooms are spacious and can easily accommodate a large group. I thoroughly enjoyed the choice of the various coffee machines which turned out a big hit in the mornings. The host, Lawrence, was friendly and we will definitely be going back.

Dit is was fantasies, eintlik meer as wat ons verwag het.

Die eienaar van Villa del Mar het ons baie goed ontvang. Laurence is 'n fantastiese host ons sal definitief weer die Villa gaan besoek. Hy is altyd beskikbaar en baie tegemoedkomend. Die huis is awesome, die weer het net nie lekker saam gespeel sodat ons van die swembad kon gebruik maak nie. Alles was net awsome, meer as wat ons verwag. Weerens dankie Laurence ons sien gou-gou weer.

It was fantastic, actually more than we expected.

The owner of Villa del Mar received us very well. Laurence is a fantastic host, we will definitely visit the Villa again. He is always available and very accommodating. The house is awesome, the weather just didn't cooperate so we could use the pool. Everything was just awsome, more than we expected. Thanks again Laurence we'll see you again soon.

Fantastic and relaxing. Really felt like a destination where you can bring overseas travellers.

The most valuable part of the entire stay is that the house was even better in real life than on the pictures.

Fantastiese huis, met besondere goeie kommunikasie en gasvryheid!

Wat 'n wonderlike kort vakansie het hierdie huis ons gegee. Soveel so, dat ons skaars die huis wou verlaat. Ons was 7 vriende en familie saam en almal praat nou nog oor die huis. Lekker geswem en die hot tub is beslis daai extra added touch. En die mooiste. Sonsondergang van beide balkonne. Lawrence, baie dankie vir jou gasvryheid en topkwaliteit diens. Niks was vir jou 'n probleem om uit te sorteer, al was dit hoe klein. Ons sal beslis weer terug wees! 10 uit 10!

Fantastic house, with particularly good communication and hospitality!

What a wonderful short vacation this house gave us. So much so, that we hardly wanted to leave the house. We were 7 friends and family together and everyone is still talking about the house. Nice swimming and the hot tub is definitely that extra added touch. And the most beautiful. Sunset from both balconies. Lawrence, thank you very much for your hospitality and top quality service. Nothing was a problem for you to sort out, no matter how small. We will definitely be back again! 10 out of 10!

Absoluut 'n fantastiese plek vir 'n lekker wegbreek, waarde vir jou geld.

By die Jacuzzi kan miskien 'n afdak kom vir as dit reën kan mens nog altyd die Jacuzzi gebruik, andersins sal ek die plek vir enige een aanbeveel, alles is daar en baie gerieflik, fantastiese vakansieplek.

Absolutely a fantastic place for a nice break, value for money.

Maybe a canopy could be added to the Jacuzzi so that if it rains you can always use the Jacuzzi, otherwise I would recommend the place to anyone, everything is there and very comfortable, fantastic vacation spot.

Wonderful holiday home right near the beach.

We had a wonderful stay at Casa del Mar. Beautiful appliances, especially the coffee machine. The jacuzzi was really so relaxing with top quality jets. The overall place was very well equipped with very comfortable beds. Lots of space for a large group. We experienced load shedding and Lawrence immediately helped us out and ensured we had sufficient lighting. Fantastic host. The house is one road away from the beach and the penguin colony is less than 300m away. A absolute must see. I highly recommend this accommodation in Betty's bay. 5/5 rating.

Alles en meer

Met ons aankoms by die vakansiehuis was ons aangenaam verras. Dit het alles gebied wat beloof was en nog meer. Die huis was baie netjies en ruim met meer as genoeg ruimte vir lekker kuier en ontspan. Die Jacuzzi was beslis een van ons gunstelingplekke om te ontspan. 'n Afdakkie oor die Jacuzzi sou dalk oorweeg kon word, sodat mens dit nogsteeds kan gebruik, al reën dit ook, soos wat by ons die geval was. Die toegang tot Netflix en DStv Now was ook 'n lekker bonus (en jy kon TV kyk terwyl jy deur die skuifdeur van die balkon nog steeds die see kan sien en hoor). Nie net is die kombuis ten volle toegerus nie, maar was van die volgende ook voorsien: koffie, tee en suiker ('n Nespresso-masjien en koffiemasjien, waarvan laasgenoemde gevul was met koffiebone), skoonmaakmiddels, wasmasjien met waspoeier en 'n skottelgoedwasser. Die 3 badkamers was voorsien van handdoeke, toiletpapier en handewasmiddels. Die gasheer was veral baie gasvry en akkommoderend en ons kon hom enige tyd via WhatsApp kontak met vrae of kwessies. Die enigste kwessie wat ons gehad het was die WiFi wat die Saterdag bietjie probleme gegee het (weet nie of die weer dalk 'n rol gespeel het nie). Ter opsomming, ons, as familie, het heerlik gekuier en sal die vakansiehuis beslis aanbeveel vir persone wat lus is vir 'n lekker luukse wegbreek.

Everything and more

Upon our arrival at the holiday home we were pleasantly surprised. It delivered everything it promised and more. The house was very neat and spacious with more than enough space for a nice visit and relaxing. The Jacuzzi was definitely one of our favorite places to relax. A canopy over the Jacuzzi could perhaps be considered, so that one can still use it, even if it rains, as was the case with us. The access to Netflix and DStv Now was also a nice bonus (and you could watch TV while still being able to see and hear the sea through the sliding balcony door). Not only was the kitchen fully equipped, but the following was also provided: coffee, tea and sugar (a Nespresso machine and coffee machine, the latter of which was filled with coffee beans), cleaning products, washing machine with washing powder and a dishwasher. The 3 bathrooms were provided with towels, toilet paper and hand sanitizer. The host was especially very hospitable and accommodating and we could contact him via WhatsApp at any time with questions or issues. The only issue we had was the WiFi which gave some problems on the Saturday (don't know if the weather might have played a role). In summary, we, as a family, had a great time and would definitely recommend the holiday home to people who fancy a nice luxury getaway.
