Dirty property with green dirty pool

  • 1 of 5

when we arrived at the Villa,we noticed the pool was green,but thought it had been the pool tiles. However,when we woke up the next day, we noticed that the pool was full of algae. We got in contact with the Owner about this and was informed the cleaner would clean it which took almost 2 weeks, and was clean on our last day. Due to this, we were blamed for the algae when it was there since day 1.we also noticed that the rugs were filthy, the seating from the living room was wet and the house had been longing for a proper clean for a while. We were also blamed for the grass ''not being green'' because it had been assumed by the Owner that we had no let the gardener in at all,when he actually only turned up once to water the garden throughout our 2 week stay.There was also a fire hazard to the Villa as there were cheap counterfeit converter plugs around the rooms.In the master bedroom on the first floor, we noticed sparks coming from one of the plugs that was connected to the air conditioning. Once taking it out before this could have been turned into a larger danger to the guests and the plug burnt out. This however, was again blamed on us by the Owner with no apology on how hazardous this was to HIS guests as this was putting lives at risk. The Villa also has CCTV around which is perfect for security, however, we were shown evidence by the Owner that he was using it to spy on us - So watch out where you take your clothes off, because we were not informed that it was being used to spy on the guests to take pictures of every single one to count the amount of people. The Owner will be on your case if you have guests over too. There is a limit of 20 and we respected that, and we stayed for 2 weeks, however, half of the family left and another part stayed for the second week to make sure the guest limit doesn't go over which we informed the Owner of. If the CCTV cameras weren't enough, the housekeeper watches over you and sends her kids to watch us over the walls.My family were using the Villa with respect and kept it clean every single day.They cleared up everything from the inside to the outside, and it was even cleaner than how it was when we first came to the Villa. Nevertheless, we were insulted by the Owner than the Villa ''smelt bad'', and the cleanliness was a disgrace. We don't know if the housekeeper, or gardener said this to earn more money on their behalf or the Owner is saying this to take money out of the deposit wich he did.The area is

Owner's Response: We always have a clean house for all our guests. You were much more than 20 people (up to 27 people the 1st day) and that's why the pool was so dirty. You also enterred an animal inside the villa without informing us. We checked CCTV after your stay because the villa was so dirty and smelts bad. You have too much damaged our villa. With our previous guest reviews, people will understand you're lying (once again). Fortunately, all our guests are not like you..

Very clean,great pool and extremely helpful owner

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 11 included 9 adults and 2 small children and everything we were promised both verbally and visually from the pictures on the web pages were all we hoped for and more. The transport from the airport was arranged prior to our arrival by Adel, the owner and we were sent pictures of our taxi driver for ease at the airport. On arrival at the villa i received a phone from Adel confirming our arrival and making sure everything had gone smoothly and wished us a great holiday. He was available at any point and arranged things via Mohammed who was on hand to help us when required. Mohammed visited to water the gardens during the evenings but was never intrusive and a great help,even taking us on our first taxi journey to the port to show us how things were done. Also for my sons birthday he and his wife prepared an evening meal-additional cost-for us.a thoroughly enjoyable Tunisian dish.

The villa itself was as shown in the pictures and exceeded our expectations. It was immaculate;y clean on arrival and the pool area was just perfect for the size group we had. Dining together was great inside and out and the layout was great for all to enjoy time together or go off into groups for privacy.

If you have a sense of adventure for exploring different cultures this is an ideal location as you do have to travel a bit to get to the more populated area to either visit the supermarket or port restaurants but its only a 15 minute bus or taxi ride away. Local bus cost was 1 Dinar,about 40p per person or a yellow taxi between 10-15 Dinar for 3 people.

All in all a great Villa if you're looking for a cheap,relaxed location for a large group with a very helpful owner and helper. I would be happy to recommend it and also if you have any fears for safety we saw nothing to indicate any problems and talking to the local shop keepers and taxi drivers they all say its the safest they have felt because of the military security now on the borders.

And finally...the weather was fantastic

Lovely villa, very spacious and great service

  • 5 of 5

We were a mixed group of 11 young professionals and came to Villa Meriem for our annual summer holiday together. I found Adel and Enrica (the villa owners) extremely helpful and attentive, answering numerous emails before the trip asking for advice, organising airport transfers for us, and always available at the end of the phone during the week we were there. We had a great time at Villa Meriem, the villa is very spacious (we had too many bedrooms!) with a lovely living area and dining room for the evenings. The outside tables were great to eat dinner by the pool too. The pool is a great size, with sun loungers beside for the sunbathers. There are all the necessary mod cons (dishwasher, washing machine, dvd player, wifi).

There is a very small supermarket at the end of the road where we bought breakfast/snacks, and a nice cafe on the corner (Cafe Veranda) where we had lunch a few times (food in Tunisia is very cheap!). There are shared taxis that drive past the end of the road every few minutes, which cost 1 dinar (£0.30) to take you to Port El Kantaoui (we recommend 'Le Mediteranee' restaurant in the port for a nice dinner) and also further down to Sousse Medina. One day we explored in the opposite direction and had a lovely lunch in the picturesque fishing village of Hergla.

A day trip to El Djem to see the Roman amphitheatre was a highlight, as was Mohammed and his wife cooking a 3 course Tunisian dinner for us one night (Adel can help you organise). A great trip all round, thanks very much!

Villa très agréable à vivre

  • 5 of 5

Quelle agréable surprise lorsque nous sommes arrivée à la villa: elle était encore mieux que sur les photos! Nous étions un groupe de 13 personnes pour 2 semaines de séjour, et nous ne nous sommes pas marchés sur les pieds. Cette villa offre réellement toutes les commodités nécessaires, voir plus, pour passer d'excellentes vacances. Les pièces sont spacieuses et offrants des coins de repos un peu partout. Sans compter tous les petits balcons. La piscine est très sympa aussi, elle est régulièrement entretenue. On y trouve des matelas gonflables... Un plongeoir et l'éclairage nocturne de la piscine ajoute du style au jardin( ce qui donne encore plus envie de piquer une tête le soir) le jardin propose aussi des coins détente différents un peu partout, ainsi que de nombreux arbres fruitiers. Les 4 chambres à l'étage ont toutes une ambiance différentes et ont toutes la clim. Sauf au sous sol. Pour les questions de logistique: la maison a la machine à laver, aspirateur, Gand frigo congel. Four , plaque gaz... Ainsi que tout le nécessaire pour faire à manger. Les serviettes fournies pour chaque chambres. Des parasols plus que nécessaires et une balancelle au bord de la piscine très agréable! Ceci est sans compter du fait qu'Adel ( le propriétaire) était plus qu'aux petits soins pour nous, se souciant de notre bien être. Un téléphone est à dispo pour le joindre à tout moment. Depuis le début, il a toujours était disponible et très sécurisant. Ce qui est très pratique aussi est la wifi. Tv DVD ... Wii. Le gardien, Mohammed est très gentil et discret. Si besoin, il est là. Il y a des petits commerces à 2 pas et pour le transport des louages et taxis passent à tout moment de la journée . Il faut compter environ 30 MM. pour aller à Sousse. Et moins de 15 MM. Pour faire les grosses courses à Port El Kantahoui. Honnêtement, si vous cherchez un endroit calme à 5mm de la mer à pieds, qui vous offre un havre de paix pour passer de superbes vacances en toute sécurité dans le golfe d'Hammameth. N'hésitez pas, car cette maison vous donnera complète satisfaction...Même nombreux. A réserver "Les yeux fermés ! "

Owner's Response: Merci Elsa pour votre commentaire. Nous avons à coeur que nos invités se sentent comme chez eux pour que leurs vacances se passent sans souci. Vous avez été des locataires très sympathiques en prenant soin de la villa. Vous et votre famille serez toujours les bienvenus... PS: dû aux fortes chaleurs, nous avons ajouté 3 ventilateurs (puissants) dans les chambres du bas et un nouveau hammac dans le jardin (sous l'olivier).

A truly wonderful villa for all the family!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is a well designed and equipped villa inside and out. We found everything clean on arrival and were greeted by Mohammed and Adel on Skype to ensure we were briefed on the facilities. During a very hot period in this region we had a very peaceful stay and most importantly the children loved it. My family were at ease and the space you have means everyone can do something they like. The pool is fantastic and there is ample lounge chairs to relax and take in the sun. Local shops carry plenty of fresh foods and snacks, you need to head to Sousse for bigger shops and the wonderful markets. Owner Adel is a an excellent host from the moment you make your booking he will assist in everything, and resolve all issues for you with the trusty Mohammed on site. We would definitely recommend to others and hope to return some day.
