The home is the most family friendly in Vanuatu with a fenced swimming pool, fully fenced property, swings in the trees and of course the hammocks are always a winner! Built for a family that included 4 children under 4, everything about safety has been thought of, down to the sand bench inside the grounds for children to play safely whilst Mum and Dad relax. This property is deal for two families to share.

“Peaceful Bliss”

Reviewed 30 Apr 2014

I just loved every day of our 7 days spent here. The property was excellent and with all the amenities and chattels available we could not have wished for more. It was great to have a vehicle at our disposal and the maid's were awesome as was the gardener. The restaurant 200 meters up the beach was that good we went there 3 times. I can't say enough about our perfect holiday. Thanks for everything. John and Shelley Clark

“Another 10 days in paradise!”

Reviewed 4 Nov 2013

Returning to Casa De Mar this year was a much anticipated holiday...Our extended family didn't think last year's stay could possibly be equalled, but it was. The house and surrounds are beautiful and maintained immaculately by the same wonderful staff - Asnet, Wendy and Phillip. Waking up each morning to the amazing view across from our private beach, swimming and snorkelling in the great rock pools to the right of the property and taking a leisurely stroll along the beach (to the left) toward Tamanu for cocktails and the occasional meal are moments in time indelibly etched in our minds. We are already planning for a return visit next year. Our daughter, her husband and their two children spent a day with us at the property (they had been staying at LeLagon Resort), and were adamant that for their next visit to Port Vila they would be booking Casa De Mar! So thank you once again Glen, Asnet, Wendy and Phillip for helping to make our return to your beautiful property so enjoyable. All going well we shall see you next year. Sue, Steve, Lindy and Nikki

The place was everything it said it was...we enjoyed every moment

We chose to stay at Casa De Mar because we wanted to be a bit out of the main town in Port Vila. The house was beautiful! right on our very own private beach. Perfect! The staff were so wonderful. Wendy, Asnet and Philip were very lovely and helpful. They came during the week to do the washing and gardening. Couldn't have chosen a more perfect pace for our stay. We are definitely coming back! Perfect for Families!!

“A little bit of paradise”

Reviewed 1 Sep 2013

We would highly recommend a stay at Cara De Mar. The location was excellent. It was nice to be out of town and have our own privacy. The accmommodation was a 'home away from home' and had everything that we needed, and there was more than enough space for the family. Our experience was enhanced by getting to know the housekeepers and gardener. They are lovely people and we learnt so much about the Ni-Van culture.

Response from the owner Hi Lisa, was great to have you and your family stay with us at Casa de Mar, we very much hope you visit us again soon. Kind regards. Glen

“a little disapointing”

Reviewed 16 Oct 2012

after leaving brisbane via sydney to port villa quite a long day got to casa de mar dying for a cold rum & coke and ice maker in fridge not working {disconnected}also cockroaches running around everywhere {around & in oven {which didn,t work too well either}in the draws & cupboards as well so everything we used had to be rinsed off. informed owner glen but pest control didn,t get there for 3 days.all they did was get around with spray cans which didn,t fix the problem !!no console game as advertised either.light switch hanging out of wall in room beside garage & dble power point hanging out of external wall by pool !! not too safe if young kids were around glen said electrician was coming but didn,t show in 10 days we were there. i think that since house is on the market it,s been let go a bit.pretty dissapointing considering what we paid. would not return.beds wern,t too comfortable either.

“Best Family Holiday Ever”

Reviewed 26 Jul 2012

The house, setting and staff are amazing. We stayed as a group of 9 for a week, and on several of the days we never left the section. Swimming, Baminton, Eating and Sleeping. Glen was very helpful, a pleasure to deal with.

“The most relaxing holiday ever”

Reviewed 30 Jun 2012

We recently stayed here with four couples and four children under four and all agreed that we could not have had a better holiday. The house was perfect for children with a large fenced beach area for them to play in, toys provided and a fenced pool. The great thing about this house is that it is on the white sand, surf beach rather than the lagoon. The view from the house is wonderful Glen and his staff were incredibly welcoming and helpful. At low tide we loved the rockpools right in front of the house and breakfast at Tamanu Resort next door was fantastic. The one small thing that could be improved is that the room outside the house is not quite as comfortable as the rooms inside. We hope to come back one day because we can't imagine a better place for a family holiday.

Response from the owner Thanks so much for the nice review! You will be pleased to know Ive refurbished the guest room outside with nice new paint, upgrade of the bathroom and new outdoor shower and curtains. Hope to see you back again soon! Tropical regards Glen

“What a great place to stay!”

Reviewed 26 Apr 2012

We recently had a wonderful week staying at this outstanding property. The warm welcome we received on arrival by the housekeeper was delightful, with fresh fruit, flowers, bottled water and a complimentary bottle of wine all included. The house is very well presented and set-up, and caters for open plan living with quality inclusions, has also an extensive DVD and book library collection. House and gardens were well maintained by a team of very friendly and obliging staff. The owners supplied a car for the guests to use which was great and another added bonus. The fact that you have a beautiful beach at your door step with safe swimming holes and also your own pool on the property left us spoilt for choice. Contact with the owner was always friendly and helpful with the "Guest Information Sheets" provided being very informative and useful. There were 3 couples in our group and all agree that this is a great property for a relaxing holiday, one we would love to come back to one day!

“Fabulous Stay at The Vanuatu Executive Retreat”

Reviewed 4 Oct 2011

We stayed here with our children mid September. We had the most fabulous stay. The place was very modern, the staff were extremely friendly and fenced wet edge pool was perfect with the children. The white sandy beach out front was a real bonus. We would definitely return to The Vanuatu Executive Retreat. We highly recommend it to any family traveling to Vanuatu.
