Laze away the days and soak up this tropical paradise. Everything you need to have a great holiday is here, the provided vehicle is a great bonus. Cool off in the pool, take a walk along the beach, Its a wonderful private location. Highly recommended,
Our family of 8 ranging in ages from 1 - 91 had a great time here. I would highly recommend this property especially if you only need 3 bedrooms.
Here are the pros: the outside grounds are beautiful! The gated infinity pool was ideal to cool off and safe for the 1 year old. The separate hammocks, chairs, and cabana throughout the property were ideal - if you wanted to be by yourself you could and there were plenty of communal areas too. The kitchen was well appointed, and added surprise was the coffee latte maker. The house had lots of space for playing inside. The air conditioning in each of the bedrooms in the house worked well. Wifi was great. The housekeepers and gardener were very friendly and maintained things quite well. It is a beautiful private resort. The proximity to Tamanu on the Beach restaurant (a 5-minute walk on the beach) was fantastic and a bonus! Having the car at the property was great. Although we rented another car we occasionally used the "house" car and it was helpful.
The cons: The issues I had with the property was only with the 4th bedroom which is in another building with no air conditioning only a fan. There is only a toilet. The sink was tiny and only had place for a container of soap and nothing else, there was no other place or shelf to put any bathroom products - not even a toothbrush. The window opening in the bathroom had slats and there was no screen, so bugs easily could come in particularly if a light was on. There is no place to hang your bath towel the only bar in the bathroom was large enough for a hand towel. There are no drawers to put away your clothes in the room. The outside cold-water only shower has no privacy. A few minor fixes could make this room a lot better.
The drive into town is more like 35 minutes away to the center of Port Vila. We went into town a few times during our 9 days stay.
If you are looking for a luxury beachfront escape this is the property for you. Kept immaculate with everything that you require for a tropical escape and relaxation. The owner was even generous enough to accommodate us on our special occasion and it was just a perfect day thank you for everything and the family will return in the future.
The property is superbly kept and in a place where there is no need to move from the oh so cosy day bed facing the ocean, which we never got tired of watching.
The use of the onsite vehicle was great.
And the locals in the area and Vanuatu are the most friendly people we have come across.
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!
