Spacious and comfortable accommodation
Good location, spacious and comfortable.
A little Secret in the Heart of it all.
VILLA SHIRAZ IN MARG RIVER!
Great Price and Value for Money!
My name is Michelle and my family recently stayed at Villa Shiraz over Christmas.
We were very happy with our Villa open arrival. Everyone was Comfortable and Happy. Lush surroundings
Beautiful gardens with birds that are just arms distance away. Very private and relaxing. So central to all the local attractions and
being able to take a short stroll around the town have dinner and drinks
out and walk home was a Big Plus. I recommend Villa Shiraz it won’t disappoint.
I will be back.
Hope you Enjoy as much as we did Michelle Carroll Wattle Grove
Dated, Unwelcoming and Depressing
We travel Australia extensively every year coming from England and this is the worst, most unwelcoming accommodation we have ever stayed in. The villa is dated, dark, drab and dingy and there remain numerous repair/maintenance and cleanliness issues. It is a lottery whether you can open the front door lock, we found several of the electric sockets sparking when used, there was a constant generator type noise which effectively rendered the back bedroom unusable, one front blind is broken and does not shut, the light shade to front bedroom light is missing, the shower head is disgusting and the shower head door handle is broken off. The curtains, blinds and carpets are filthy and we found empty pistachio nut shells down the side of the settee. The cooking utensils are old and decrepit. Furnishings are poor. We paid extra for the linen and towels to find the towels cheap, thin and virtually threadbare and no effort made to even iron the pillowcases despite paying for them.
Dont expect any replies from the owner.
The villa is spacious, has a pleasant neatly tended small garden area with covered patio and is a ten minute walk to the main street. This could make a very pleasant stay but the villa is in need of a complete overhaul and refurbishment.
Would we stay here again - no. Would we recommend - no.
Communication issues need addressing!
The good : Villa is well located and quiet. You can walk to town but it is a good 15 minutes so don't think you are 'in town' as you are not! Villa is spacious and you can spread out and make yourself comfortable.
Needs attention : as other reviews have alluded to there are many aspects of this property that are tired and need attention.
We experienced repeated instances of electrical safety switch flipping when turning on lights - had to find the circuit board was annoying.
The taps, flush toilets and showers head are all tired and the shower leaks slowly. Flush buttons stick and have to be manually reset to stop toilet running.
The carpet is tired and the thick rugs ingrained with dirt - needs cleaning replacing beyond a vacuum.
The front door handle / locking mechanism is loose and getting the key to open the front door was a continuous challenge.
The bad : communication from Angelo prior to our contacting him ourselves the day before was non existent. So glad we did because there would have been a major issue with linen and towels on our arrival otherwise.
The ugly : Angelo replied with instructions for accessing the villa (good) but then wished to confirm that we were supplying our our linen. We were not as it clearly stated on the Stayz web site for Villa Shiraz that 'linen and towels are provided'.
When we pointed this out he replied claiming to quote some fine print that I never saw anywhere claiming it was $30.00 pp extra for the stay for linen and towels. After some to and fro email negotiations he agreed to waive the fee. Whilst we appreciated this gesture we still maintain that it is clear that these basic items are included in the rental cost and not an extra. It is a patently ridiculous expectation that an interstate couple travelling by air to WA for 1 week would pack and bring linen to a holiday rental!
This scenario played out the night before check in and seriously detracted from our enjoyment of that evening whilst anxiously trying to resolve this issue.
Normally I would recommend a property like Villa Shiraz for its location and space but the overriding poor communication and related issue as above means I will not recommend this property unless you are willing to chance having to deal with similar issues.
Overall assessment - disappointing experience and not recommended.
Hi Martin, Your comment ‘Linen & Towels are Provided’ is incorrect for your booking.. your booking was confirmed on 13th June 17, our listing explained linen & towels can be provided at $30 per person, or you have the option to bring your own, this was (in normal print) under exceptions further down the page. Rates at that time were reduced to allow for L&T.. hence why you only paid $316.20 for your stay, I'm sure that's the best rate you will find anywhere in town and possibly why you booked Villa Shiraz! Given the opportunity to save costs, 90% of guests opt to BYO L&T. I understand interstate guests may not have that option so then you add the fee, this arrangement worked well for most guests however it has caused issues for those who don't read the listing completely. In September this year we changed the above mentioned L&T option. We are now supplying L&T permanently in the villa and have adjusted the rates and listing accordingly, this will explain why you noticed on the Stayz web site that 'linen and towels are provided'. In September this year we also addressed maintenance issues this included: lighting, replaced bathroom heater / fan / light fitting, repaired clothes dryer, replaced toilet flush system by plumber, introduced 2 new king single beds, new bed linen and towels throughout, additional cutlery, plates, glasses for 8 guests. Carpets and windows professionally cleaned. Your comments on further maintenance issues is invaluable and I thank you, we endeavour to address these issues ASAP. Martin.. it is unfortunate you have chosen to use this platform to inform us of these issues. Our access email to you clearly asks to contact us directly, this is so we can address issues instantly, we now have a situation where further guests are experiencing the same maintenance issues. My apologies for the communication bundle, there has been some confusion monitoring the bookings post September changes with no linen fees, I have now placed reminders on these bookings and have advised guests in advance. Thank you and kind regards Angelo
Very cosy, close to city centre, easy to find loca
Although we enjoyed our stay, we felt there were quite a few maintenance issues that need to be addressed. Passed these on the Angelo before we left.
Great villa, but.....
Great villa, great location but customer service not great. The emails that we had received prior to arrival were all signed ' Margaret River Resort'. On arrival, we assumed that MRR reception would be able to assist us with entry to the villa. They were shut. Rick at the bottle shop was very helpful, but to no avail. Eventually we made phone contact with Angelo after 7pm. He did not ring us. On leaving the property we still had no contact re checkout process.
This property is not managed by MRResort fespite the email signature.Make sure that you have all instructions before arrival.
