“Lovely apartment. Spoiled trip. Building and noise next door currently.”

Reviewed 5 Nov 2018

Stayed for 5 nights in October. The owners sent an email two weeks before we left to inform us that the neighbors were building a granny flat. They hadn't been disrupted on their stay at Santina … More

Owner's reply: So sorry you had to experience this. Luckily now its all over, thank goodness! (As you know we arrived and found our neighbours building on our fence line!!! Luckily we were able to stop this and move them back. Needless to say they gave us no warning) We think we had a power surge issue (common in Vanuatu as powerlines overhead) and we lost two DVD players, a Tv and a microwave! All replaced now. Though the foxtell we have has plenty of movies on it as an alternative to DVDs. In regards to the cleaning , the cleaning lady said you had done it all before she came which I think you confirmed but I will make sure she is aware of your feedback and thank you for letting us know (though we include cleaning as a bonus (no cost to you) as we want to support her and her family . (Your house staff become family in Vanuatu and supporting them is a way of giving back to the country).

“Fantastic. Best in Vila”

Reviewed 26 Jan 2016

We stayed in Santina in January 2016, and absolutely loved it. its set high up on a hill, with sweeping views over Erakor island and its surrounding turquoise tropical waters. Magic mornings. Really quite spectacular. the pool is set on the edge with the same fab views. Because its high, it has lots of breeze. this is really something many other properties in Vila miss out on. it makes it oh so cool. its an apartment, but its an ultra large one. and because its ground floor, it gets the coolness of the earth and is protected from the sun from the unit above, so it barely gets any sun to heat it up. as a contrast, we visited our friends place, and it was typically hot, the latent heat of their building heating up their deck and making the night Hot. when we got home we couldn't believe how cool our unit was and the nice breeze coining in made it perfect to sleep to. and i know, we lived there for 4 years, its the coolest place i have been to, and I've been to lots. this is a big bonus. this rental is really decked out for the punters. the owners have done a great job in making it comfortable. new furniture and really nice decor, plus mod cons like a coffee espresso machine, cane sun lounges, portable bbq, and soon to be pizza oven!! plus it has a fully functional kitchen and all the pots, cutlery, containers and cooking utensils you'll ever need. its really a great place to stay and i would highly recommend it. and its really good value for what you get. you cant go past it. highly recommended. book it b/c you wont be disappointed.

Owner's reply: Thank you Rod for your thoughts. We looked around for 10 years before we bought here for all the same reasons you mentioned, view, coolness/ breeze, size of unit and closeness to town- a winning combo we thought! Glad you think so too!
