“Didn't returned our deposit”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 29, 2013

The agent(Chinese lady named Ms. G) is very rude on the phone and didn't returned out deposit eventhough it wasn't our fault that they rent out the first bungalow without actually having it available for rent, so they gave us this instead which she said was a more expensive value. We even gave them extra from what was agreed in March 2012 for a ten day holiday in December 2012. we would not mind passing over deposit to them if they ask or told us earlier but saying they will bank in the money a few day later after returning from outstation after we check out is truly not a respectable thing to do. Keep away

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2012

There are approximately one hundred and ten of these villas with varying dimensions and sizes across the road from Bayview Beach Hotel, Batu Ferringhi. We were informed by a Management employee that only around thirty are actually occupied. Some are rented out to holiday makers. They vary from the well maintained to the (frankly) decaying. Despite being only ten years old, lack of paintwork and the salty sea air has taken its toll on woodwork. We enjoy the fresh air, sea views, and nightly trips to a food court offering good quality meals, varying cuisines, and prompt service. What we do not find pleasurable in this peaceful location is the daily sound of renovation drilling. This appears to be a 'catch up' on neglected property maintaining (e.g. a termite infested floor at one property near the top of the hill!) We suggest that if you decide to enjoy this sparkling location, you first check for sound levels adjacent to your 'beautiful foreigner villa'!

Stayed November 2012, traveled on business
