disapointed with condition of rental villa

  • 2 of 5

although the houseis full of character, and right where we wanted to be for the D Day Anniversary, we were very concerned with the electrics and general condition of the villa.

there were holes in the walls, loose wires and sockets , including behind the bunk beds. There was peeling wallpaper on the top floors and two of the baths were not used as unable to get into them without a handrail.

The secluded garden is actually at the front , and when we arrived, the garden had a quantity of masonary on the grass as the wall had been knocked over on one side.

Owner's Response: On arrival the tenants kept saying how lovely the villa was as we did the tour of the rooms. They did not complain during their entire one week stay. On departure they were still all smiles and compliments on the villa until I noticed that some towels were missing. That’s when they got angry and threatened to leave negative feedback if I made them pay, they paid up. I have been renting for 3 years and have had well over 70 tenants of which only the angry ones bother to leave feedback. The advert clearly states that the villa has not been renovated since 1990, the paintwork INSIDE the villa was redone in 2009, the electricity was completely renovated in 2009, the fuse boxes are all modern and all have a flick switch, the plumbing was redone in April 2014, the guttering in May 2014, heating installed in Dec 2012. There are no loose wires that are live, NONE of the wires in the chandeliers are connected to the electricity, they are there purely for the beauty of the antique crystals, they do NOT light up, there is NO electricity connected to them, thus there is NO danger, what’s more they are at the ceiling level at 2.4m high, so no child nor adult could touch them even if they tried. Sorry but there is NO wiring nor even sockets behind the bunk beds!!!??? The problem with the 3rd floor external guttering (now repaired) was explained to them and they said they understood. I informed them that the drainpipe had leaked against the external wall hence part of the wallpaper had peeled off, decorators are due to start shortly. Just before their arrival the patio brick wall had been knocked over by previous tenants, the bricks were left there so that the insurance expert could see, this was explained and they said they totally understood. It would seem that they didn't. The bath is a traditional French Victorian bath (baignoire sabot). I am 1.65cm tall I have absolutely no problem in getting in nor out of the bath without the use of a hand rail. I never said the garden was secluded at the rear of the villa. The photos clearly show the garden is at the front of the villa with a VIEW of the sea, not at the back, in the shade and no view! The villa is equipped throughout with QUALITY NEW equipment (2 fully equipped kitchens and 2 sitting rooms), a NEW dish washer, NEW washing machine, NEW dryer, 2 NEW fridges, 2 NEW ovens, 2 NEW large flat screen TV (one 3D), NEW mattresses and NEW cotton linen throughout the villa, the bathrooms are spotless, yet nothing mentioned.

TRÈS BELLE DEMEURE IDÉALEMENT SITUÉE

  • 5 of 5

A recommander.

L'accueil est particulièrement chaleureux et efficace.

Très belle villa d'une situation idéale avec accès à la plage à moins de 40 mètres. Située au coeur de la ville et à proximité des commerces. Un endroit idéal pour se retrouver en famille ou entre amis. Tout est prévu pour une famille nombreuse avec tous conforts modernes. La villa est très spacieuse, confortable et bien équipée; lits et literies sont excellents. Internet, Wifi, même un ordinateur à disposition.

voir ci-dessous pour la version Française :

The villa was quite charming, very clean and very well equiped with everything you could need. It is situated very close to the beach and the views from the bedrooms were to die for.

We all slept brilliantly, the bedding was fantastic, new matresses and real down duvets were a real luxury and so snug.

The owner was very helpful and went out of her way to help us get settled in.

We had a fantastic barbecue in the garden.

The villa was fantastic, the owner was brilliant and the beach was superbe. What more could you ask for?

Version Française :

La villa était charmante, très propre et très bien équipée avec tout ce que vous pourriez avoir besoin. Il est situé très proche de la plage et la vue depuis les chambres à coucher est magnifique. Nous avons tous dormi comme des bébés, la literie était fantastiques, de nouveaux matelas et couettes en véritable duvet de canard, un vrai luxe et tellement bien au chaud.

La propriétaire était très gentille et sympa avec nous, elle a tout fait pour que notre installation soit passé sans le moindre problème.

Nous avons fait un barbecue fantastique dans le jardin.

La villa était fantastique, la propriétaire a été brillante et la plage était superbe.

Que pourriez-vous demander de plus?

Séjour très agréable

  • 5 of 5

La propriétaire était très accueillante. La villa est spacieuse et les chambres très confortables. Nous avions tous un vrai lit, pourtant nous étions 8 enfants et 10 adultes, il y a même un vrai lit bébé. La literie est excellente et très chaude.

La villa est très bien placée, avec la plage à une trentaine de mètres et des vues panoramiques mer et collines, quelle splendeur!

Le décor est de l’époque des années 1930, avec de beaux meubles anciens.

De plus, nous avons loué l’appartement du 3ème étage qui est un vrai luxe, téléviseur 3D et fauteuils relaxes en cuir, quel confort!

Le jardin est bien entretenu et entouré de fleurs d’hiver très parfumées. Quelle merveille!

Séjour très agréable, qui nous laisse un très bon souvenir. Merci Ariane.

Bel accueil dans une maison authentique

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons passé un court mais bon séjour dans cette maison de charme typiquement normande. Très bien placée car proche de la mer et des commerces. Cette maison est parfaite si vous souhaitez vous déplacer la région. Nous étions 19 adultes et n'avons pas manquer de place pour nous organiser bien qu'il faut ne pas avoir de soucis avec la proximité. Je recommande de prendre le supplément chauffage en période humide pour plus de confort durant la nuit.

DOMMAGE ! l'entretien

  • 1 of 5

Nous avons loué toute la maison (25 pers) pour un week-end. Et nous avons été déçus de l’état général. Maison mal entretenue, pas de rafraichissement ou rénovation visible. La cage d’escalier est vraiment vétuste avec du vieux papier d'époque qui se décolle par grand pan(même s’il ne présente pas de danger). Tres vieux plancher non entretenu avec des traces de peintures :-( . Impression générale assez mauvaise. Les salles de bain laissent à désirer (rideaux de douche sales, baignoires sabot haut perchées accès avec escarbot !). La maison a 130 ans ça se voit , elle vraiment dans son jus !! Les balcons en tres mauvais état (heureusement pas accessibles) . BBQ tres bon état mais petit (8-10 pers max) ne vaut pas le prix demandé. Gros soucis tout de suite avec le lave-vaisselle et une des douches. Pas d'intimité dans le petit jardin on est exposé au regard des passants et des clients du resto en face. Maison à éviter si vous êtes asthmatique, allergiques, sensible à l'humidité et aux acariens, ou avec BB. C'est vraiment dommage car elle est idéalement située dans la rue principale, à 2 pas de la plage, du casino, des commerces et bénéficie d'une belle vue. Tres bon point pour la literie de qualité et les couettes, serviettes de toilette fournies, et bon accueil de la propriétaire. Mais elle devrait investir un dans la rénovation de cette maison charmante, au premier abord.

Very easy to find on a map, it is just opposite the Casino and what used to be the 'Grand Hotel' of Houlgate. Whether coming off the Ferry from Ouistreham or Le Havre initially follow directions for Caen/Cabourg then follow directions for Houlgate.

There is something for everyone : Golf course and tennis courts close by, also mini golf, the Casino, windsurfing and of course the sandy beach just metres away.
