“Love the bird life ..”
Reviewed September 27, 2012

We enjoyed our stay, accommodation neat and comfortable in nice surroundings. We loved the bird life at Villa Chante, especially early in the morning. Shops and the sea is nearby but jet far enough to enjoy the tranquility. Thanks guys see you again, Cherene :-)

It is a great place to relax, and the view is very nice!! The villa was neat and tidy and Louise was a stunning hostess!! Went out of her way to ensure we had all we needed. The villa is situated in a quiet area, close enough to the shops and the beach. Thx again for lovely weekend!

We spent a relaxing and quiet week-end at Villa Chante.
Accomodation were neat and clean and the Units had everything necessary
for a self-catering holiday. Louise the host was very helpful and kind.
Beach not far away and shops were also close by.
Will visit again

I couldn't not tell you anything about this place. The reason for this is they cancelled our booking.
We booked and our booking was confirmed. Six days later they contacted us that they only take bookings of five days or more and they were fully booked, so they cancelled our booking.
Nowhere could I find this claim and also why wait six days. I put both questions to them, but did not receive an answer. I contacted travelground, through whom we booked and they contacted Villa Chante, who were going to contact me. Never happened. I do not fault travelground in any way.

Being a family orientated establishment we require a minimum stay off seven nights during high season ( 15 December - 10 January ). Unfortunately that was not correct reflected on the booking agents website, but was rectified and our sincere apologies for the inconvenience caused.

I stayed at Villa Chante for a week with my family. The idea was to just go and relax and that Dana Bay is ideal for. The beach is kilometers of sand and just the place for those long relaxing walks. Unfortunately Villa Chante isn't on the beach and you have to take your car to get down to the beach itself. The accommodation was comfortable and the units have everything that one needs when on a self catering holiday. Dana Bay is a little out of Mossel Bay, but if you don't want to be in town, then its ideal.
