“Amazing tropical getaway”
Reviewed 14 January 2013 for a stay in January 2013

If you are looking for a tropical getaway then look no further. Amazing location with the beach on your doorstep. The house is fully decked out with all the mod cons. All of the bedrooms have air con so sleeping in comfort is no problem. We spent most of the time either in the pool or sitting outside looking out to the amazing view (wine in hand). It is just a short drive to Port Vila and the vehicle was supplied. There are 'house girls' who come in each day and clean and do any washing which is returned to your room folded away neatly, great service. The kitchen is fully stocked with a revolving pantry system which is a brilliant idea, you take food, you leave food. As we got in late we were able to make a platter of food and wash it down with a couple of cold local beers already there, fantastic. We can't wait to go back and take the kids with us....

“Perfect place for friends or family”
Reviewed 13 January 2013 for a stay in June 2012

From the moment you step inside this fabulous modern home, you know you are going to have a great time. You will want for nothing, space to relax or share time with others, modern facilities throughout including a great kitchen. Views out to the ocean across the infinity pool, Bar B Q's by the pool in the evenings and a short trip (or walk along the beach) to one of the best restaurants in the South Pacific. How can you not enjoy it. The House staff are excellent, honest and friendly, with that cheeky humour so enjoyed in the Pacific Islands. Slept the sleep of the innocent every night, and awoke to another beautiful day in paradise. Try it you won't be dissapointed, I know, this was my second stay here, and I plan one now take a week off to stay at . Can't recommend it high enough.

“Wow, what paradise”
Reviewed 9 January 2013 for a stay in June 2012

The place is huge and right on the beach. House is big enough to find a spot all by yourself if need be or socialise, swim in the pool, walk along the beach or swim in the swim holes.
The maids were fantastic and if you dropped some clothing it was back washed and ironed before you knew it and very pleasant people with it.
Close to town if needed and I loved the walks along the beach or around the neighbourhood.
Would go back anytime.

“Absolute Heaven!!”
Reviewed 4 November 2012 for a stay in October 2012

I have been to Vila several times and stayed at various resorts. this time however I decided along with my sister and her husband to stay at Casa De Mar. What a fantastic decision that turned out to be.
Firstly the property: the house is huge, very nicely furnished with plenty of different spots to curl up with a book. Fantastic kitchen, what a bonus cooking up delicious local fare bought from the markets. The house is spotless thanks to Asnet and Wendy who came in every day and took care of the housework. Philip kept the yard and pool area ship shape, even raking the sand out the back each day!
It is absolute sea front, at low tide we found beautiful water holes to swim in.
The property comes with an airconditioned duel cab ute, so getting around wasn't a problem.
Thank you Glen for a fantastic holiday, already planning our next stay in 2013!

“FANTASTIC 10 DAYS AT CASA DE MAR”
Reviewed 31 October 2012 for a stay in October 2012
1
person found this review helpful

My wife, her sister and myself were looking for a complete break away from the hustle and bustle of life in Aussie, and boy, did we find it at Casa De Mar just 15-20 mins from the township of Port Vila.

From the airport where we were greeted with a refreshing cold drink and a happy smile by Seth our driver and who obligingly stopped at the local supermarket for a few supplies - to the warm welcome at the home from Asnet, our 10 days were pure relaxation.

Casa de Mar is a spacious and gracious home, maintained spotlessly by a friendly and discreet staff. Not too far from Vila but far enough to be able to unwind and enjoy the 'real' Vanuatu as opposed to staying at a resort.

The Tamanu Resort and Restaurant is a short walk along the beachfront for the occasional meal out........The food and service is wonderful and the staff welcome you as a "local".

Having said that, we were happy to stay put and do most of our cooking at 'home', enjoying the pool and rock pools when not venturing out to explore various parts of the island in the 4WD which is included as part of the package.

We cannot recommend Casa De Mar highly enough and have made tentative arrangements with extended family to return next year. Thank you Glen for providing such a lovely and welcoming house for your guests and a special 'thank-you' to Asnet for making us feel like part of her family.

Steve, Sue and Lindy.
