Just returned from a fantastic week in Vanuatu, The team at Casa De Mar were just awesome,
Yvette, Jake and John all went out of their way to make our trip as brilliant as possible.
A couple of little hiccups that were quickly sorted but apart from that it was all great.
The Family are trying to twist my arm to return as soon as possible ( it would not take a lot of twisting to get me to re- book) Once again Thank you all for being so great and we look forward to seeing you again.

“Beautiful House in Fantastic Location”
Reviewed July 5, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We stayed at Glen's place for 6 nights in June with our young family. It was the perfect place for us to unwind and get into "island time". We stay in a lot of holiday houses when we travel and this is one of the best! It is so well set up with everything you could possibly need which makes life so much easier when you are travelling with little children. The house is spacious and designed to capture the cool sea breezes. The view is magnificent from so many parts of the property and there are countless day beds and hammocks to just sit back and enjoy the sun and sea. The staff who arrive each morning to tend to the house and garden were all wonderfully friendly and professional. We were taken care of so well it was hard to want to come home. I would have no hesitation in recommending this house and we intend to return sometime soon. Thanks Glen!

Thanks guys, you were such a pleasure to have stay. I saw the pictures of the lobster feast you cooked on your last night and was very jealous.

We try and make the space somewhere to just kick back, enjoy island time and relax and it sounds like you did.

See you back again soon

“An experience the whole family enjoyed and can't wait to return.”
Reviewed June 27, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Hi Glen, thanks once again for allowing us to spend our family holiday at Casa De Mar. A special thanks to Asneth, Yvette and Jake for looking after us and making us all feel at home, especially the kids, I think they enjoyed playing footy with Jake. Thank you to John for all his assistance and making us feel welcome, driving the Hummer was a special treat. We are looking forward to planning our third trip next year and catching up with the team at the house. Kindest regards Ken,Pam & family.

“Perfect Family Beachouse”
Reviewed March 29, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

The place had an incredible amount of room for the kids to play, inside and out with a superb pool which was incredibly safe. Sipping a cold beer on the outdoor lounge chairs overlooking the white sandy beach and beautiful ocean was a great way to unwind whilst watching the kids play in the pool and the huge lawn and private beach.
The large fire place on the beach was a real hit and we couldn't have asked for a better place to stay.

A big thank you to John (Property Manager) and the girls for making us feel so welcolme. We so did enjoy Casa De Mar. The pool and beach are just what we wanted. To wake up in the morning to the sound and sight of the sea is just wonderfull.
Plenty of room to spread out and make yourselves at home. The added bonus was the use of the 4x4 Dual Cab vehicle made it easy to get around to the local area and shops.
Just a dream location, want to come back very soon. Highly Recommend.

We stayed at Casa de Mar for a week with our two year old daughter.

In a word - paradise - this place has all the luxury of a resort but complete privacy.

We fell in love with Vanuatu, the people, the food, the island.. It's wonderful.

Staying in a villa is perfect, here you have the beach and a beautiful pool to choose from. Plus, 500 meters down the road is Ripples where you can watch the sunset with a cocktail and eat some of the best food we have had anywhere.

The villa comes with a vehicle which is great for day trips and little adventures.

A wonderful sea breeze keeps you nice and cool and the house has everything you need - including a great coffee machine you can fire up with freshly ground Vanuatu coffee every morning.

The house girls were lovely, and made our stay fantastic - our daughter looked forward to their arrival each morning so she could go out and hunt for crabs scuttling around in the garden with Yvette.

Don't be put off by the cyclone, everything apart from a couple of the big resorts is back up and running.

Highly recommend this place, we will definitely be going back - we are already planning a trip next year.

Casa De Mar is a fantastic house in a fantastic location. The staff are wonderful and their local knowledge is a real help; they keep the house and gardens perfect. We enjoyed walking straight out on to the beach and exploring the reef. Having the car to use for trips into Port Vila is a real bonus and made our holiday even more exciting. (driving on the wrong side of the road for us Aussies!)
We all enjoyed our time spent at Casa De Mar and highly recommend it to others.
Thanks Glen and the girls for our great holiday.
