House was a great size for 6 adults and 2 kids staying, while it is showing some age and the third toilet in the guest bedroom could use a new seat, the house and grounds are more than comfortable. Use of the big Ford ute was great, considering the house is about 35-40 minutes from Port Vila. House ladies were very helpful, and did a great job. Just make sure you let them know what clothes you don't want washed if you happen to leave them laying around.
Tamanu down the beach had great food, and they loved our kids coming up for meals. Would happily recommend the house to anyone looking for a nice quiet place, well away from the noise with plenty of space for the kids to play in safety.
Fantastic beach with well laid out property and gorgeous sea views. Super living area and bedroom configuration worked perfectly for our group of 3 couples but would work just as well for a family. House and garden staff were a wonderful inclusion which made our stay extra relaxing. Free use of vehicle was a huge plus. Although current road conditions make this property closer to 30 mins from Port Vila there are a number of attractions close by, turtle sanctuary, blue lagoon etc and would definitely recommend.
Casa De Mar is beautiful, such a magical place with amazing staff. The house has everything you need for a totally relaxing holiday. Tamanu Resort is only an 100m walk and their food is devine! Everything we could have possibly wanted and more!!! Highly recommend, totally exceeded our expectations and we will definitely be planning our next trip soon!
Our second stay at Casa was as amazing as the first .The villa is perfect for families . This trip we got married at Tamanu , just along the white Sandy beach from the villa. We would not have wanted to do it anywhere else , the villa is fully equipped with everything you need and the staff Yvette and Ana were so kind and helpful
too us . We could have stayed there forever.
Casa De Mar was a beautiful and relaxing place to stay. Waking up to the view from the master bedroom and then jumping into the ocean or pool for a refreshing swim was divine. Owner and staff were very friendly and helpful, the availability of a 4WD was really appreciated. Thanks to all for a great holiday!!
We spent five nights at Casa del Mar with my sisters family and we really enjoyed ourselves. We took long walks along the beach exploring the rock pools and the kids loved the swimming pool and being able to run around the huge garden. The house is very well fitted out with a great library and TV. Having the use of a car was a real bonus. Sensational food at Ripples restaurant just down the road! The housekeepers Yvette and Esnay are delightful and loved the kids. Highly recommended!
We stayed for 5 nights at the end of September, and had an awesome holiday. The house was immaculate and perfectly kitted out for a family holiday. Plenty of games and books to keep people happy, fantastic pool and really interesting beach to walk along including the fire pit on the beach.
The staff (2 Aunties who were Maids and Uncle the Gardiner) were really friendly and helpful and kept the place in great order they are also really helpful and can recommend good places to check out. It was also awesome to have the 4WD vehicle available this enabled us to get around the island and check out some of the close attractions, Turtle Sanctuary, Blue Water Hole and some of the other awesome beaches.
Only thing to note is the restaurants are not that close or available, Timanu Resort 5 min walk is still being rebuilt and Ripples is not open M,T W so make sure you bring enough BBQ food to cover these nights as it's a long way back into town (the Sausages are awesome though on the Island!) We also bought a big box of snack food over as it makes things quite a bit cheaper as nearly everything is imported on the island.
