Stunning Views to die for!

Simone Gibbs

Venabu certainly lives up to its meaning of beautiful house! From the moment we walked into the house we were blown away by the views and the lovely high ceilings. The decor was of a high standard and the beds were very comfortable. On the negative side there was no wifi! There weren't any instructions given to us on how to work anything (the oven was quite tricky and I managed to set the alarm off). For the amount we paid we were shocked that the basics like hand soap and weren't provided.

Hi Simone, thanks for your review. We'll organise for instructions to be at the property, thanks for letting us know this. Thanks O'Meara Property



Great place with fabulous views. We had many nights on the balcony enjoying the view and sea breeze. A truly amazing place.



So seems this property was too good to be true, a week after we got back we received an email attached with photos saying we will be charged for extra cleaning because the cleaner had to pick up a piece of fluff up off the floor, a dish washing sponge and surface wipe cloth from the sink and a bar of soap and wrapper from one of the baths and also complained they had to mop the floor? After spending 6k for 5 nights which included a cleaners fee I would not expect I would have to mop the floor ( which a cleaner would have to do to ensure its hygienically clean enough for the next guest anyway) or be charged extra for picking up a few tiny left items and throwing them in the bin. We cleaned this house to a very good standard but these guys by the sound of it expect it to be left clean enough for the next guest to move right in. Unless you enjoy scrubbing and mopping and going over the place with a fine tooth comb on your last morning before the 10am check out then I would suggest you avoid this place like the plague and find somewhere with realistic owners which have cleaners that actually dont complain about picking up a piece of fluff of the floor and moping floors and you guest it clean. Avoid



I cant recommend this house enough, we booked for 3 families with a total of 4 kids and it housed us all perfectly with so much space for everyone. We had absolutely no complaints at all, everything was as it said it would be, if anything we all thought the photos didnt do it enough justice, the views were amazing with so many different areas to chill, relax, eat and take it all in. We stayed over Christmas and the owners had generously left us a Christmas hamper containing a bottle of Mot and delicious snacks which was also a beautiful touch. Thanks for a great Christmas getaway, we will be back again soon. Lee and Heidi
