Wonderful place and location but in need of maintenance and repair

  • 3 of 5

My husband and I just spent a 10 day vacation at Vanilla Villa with another couple (4 adults). We found the villa to be safe, clean, comfortable and very charming, however there were some issues that will be addressed later.

The villa is located in a lovely gated community in a beautiful location of the island within walking distance to one of the most beautiful beaches on the island. In addition, the villa is generally well equipped, all key equipment (stove, dishwasher, microwave, toaster oven, etc.) in good working order. We especially loved the open kitchen (picture is accurate) and large terrace facing the sea. Because the villa has a wonderful view of the sea and lovely surrounding tropical foliage, it is truly a tropical paradise and we very much enjoyed our coffee and breakfast, extended happy hours and sometimes dinner surrounded by the lovely views and ocean sounds. The agent Veronika and Anne who greeted us were very accommodating even arranging to have our dinner and drinks there as we arrived late.

However, we are also in agreement with recent assessments of the poor condition of some of the furniture, pool, railings, and fixtures. The pool stone patio has pronounced crack creating a trip hazard. Many of the perimeter stone trim pieces at the pool edge are loose as well. And clearly, a fresh coat of paint is badly needed inside. Finally, the veranda at the master bedroom has been converted to a shed like structure blocking the view.

Hopefully the owner will make the necessary repair investments because it truly is a wonderful place in a wonderful location. Therefore, although overall we enjoyed our stay, the villa clearly is now in need of maintenance and repair and posing risk for injury. For this reason we would not rent again and are hesitant to recommend especially to families with children.

Beautiful comfortable home with a wonderful view of the sea!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a family vacation and had a lovely time at Vanilla villa. The home is comfortable and we love the relaxed outdoor living with the splendid view of the sea from the kitchen and other areas of the home. The sound of the sea, beautiful flowers and landscaping makes this a wonderful retreat. The owner is very responsive and Nicole who met us at the house is extremely helpful. We would highly recommend this home!

Maison qui tombe en ruine

  • 2 of 5

Nous avons passé 15 jours dans cette maison qui mériterait beaucoup de rénovations .

- les transats sont vraiment vétustes et pour la moitié cassés

- le manque d’un rideau de douche pour éviter de noyer la salle de bain

- le sommier de la chambre principal est une planche de bois

- la moisissure des grilles des volets de la cuisine tombe dans la cuisine (sur les plages de travail et donc dans les aliments ) à chaque ouverture et fermeture .

- le matériel pour manger et faire à manger est en partie rouillé ce qui est loin d’être hygiénique

- la terrasse est complètement fendue

- les balcons ne sont absolument pas sécurisés

Dommage d’avoir un si bel emplacement et de ne pas vouloir mettre la main à la poche pour recevoir convenablement les vacanciers

Cette maison sert juste de rente ...
