“A beautiful serene holiday with a view!”
Reviewed May 8, 2012

If you are ever in Saltspring and need more than a day to enjoy the beautiful laid back island, be sure to book a night or two at the Vesuvius Villa! I would highly recommend suite number 10! It is situated in the middle of the condos with an outdoor deck over looking the beautiful view! You will not be disappointed! The decor and atmosphere is very welcoming! We will definitely be back.
Thanks again! The McQuhae's and Robertson's

We were impressed by the decor and cleanliness of the condo but when we went to turn on the fireplace (since it cooled down at night), we discovered it didn't work. When we asked the property manager, she just said "Sorry" and "It's a common problem among all the fireplaces in the villas". If this is the case, then why advertise a fireplace? In addition, we were told there was a CD player so when we wanted to listen to music while cooking dinner, we discovered the speakers were blown. For the pricey amount we were charged for the villa, I would have expected everything to be in working order.

We are so sorry that you found there to be a couple of disappointments with the suite. We do make every effort to ensure that our suites provide our guests with all of the comforts of home and if there is a problem we make every effort to rectify it. Prior to each guest's arrival we do spend the time to check that all is in working order and ready for our guests.
We did receive and acknowledge your late evening phone call regarding the fireplace not working. We once again extend our apologies for this - and since our conversation we have found another supplier and repair company for the necessary parts required. Being on a small island - these obstacles do become more of a challenge. This suite now includes a directional letter for use of the stereo system. Unfortunately some buttons were inadvertently pushed - perhaps prior to your check in - causing the speakers sound to be disconnected.. As each of our suites are independently owned - they each offer residential style components - as such is the case with the stereo system in this particular suite.

Once again thank you for staying at the Villas - and for your understanding regarding your concerns.

What a beautiful property, nice location close to the beach and dining.
Our time there was enjoyed and we didn't want it to end!
A definate vacation spot for families with children, having a washer and dryer in our unit was a huge bonus, we can't wait to get back...a HUGE thanx to Lenelle for making our trip so fabulous!
