Die water is vuil, die linne ook nie skoon nie.

Die hele ervaring was nie lekker nie, geen skoon water nie, geen lugversorger nie en ook dis nie netjies en skoon nie.

Die plek is nice net die waterprobleem en net dat dit ons kamer was wat nie water regtig gehad het nie.

Die probleem wat ek ondervind het was dat daar nie water was om te shower nie ons moet water opsit om te bad en daar was ook nie toilet water nie. Daar was kanne water gesit om te gebruik vir bad en toilet gebruik. As hulle dit vooraf gese het het ek nie die plek besbreek nie en so duur betaal en nie eers discount gekry op dit nie.

The place is nice only the water problem and only that it was our room that didn't really have water.

The problem I encountered was that there was no water to shower, we had to add water to bathe and there was no toilet water either. There were jugs of water set out to use for bathing and toilet use. If they had said this in advance I would not have broken the place and paid so much and not even got a discount on it.

Verblyf was aangenaam genoeg gewees, maar die eienaars kan gerus hier en daar verbeterings doen.

Ons het in die donker daar aangekom en die beligting by die trappe waar ons moes afstap was baie swak. Die teëls op die vloer van die kamer was baie vuil gewees. Die TV-kanale is beperk tot net drie kanale met baie swak ontvangs daarby. Die kamer het nie sy eie ketel nie, maar wel koffie en suiker. Gaste wil tog nie vroeg in die oggend na buite stap om te gaan koffie maak in die gemeenskaplike kombuis nie!

This review is being shown in its original language.
Translate to English.

Stay was pleasant enough, but the owners can feel free to make improvements here and there.

We got there in the dark and the lighting at the stairs where we had to walk down was very poor. The tiles on the floor of the room were very dirty. The TV channels are limited to just three channels with very poor reception at that. The room does not have its own kettle, but it does have coffee and sugar. Guests don't want to step outside early in the morning to make coffee in the communal kitchen!

Mens verwag vir daardie geld net bietjie meer TV-kanale om jou mee besig te hou.

Die diens was goed en alles mooi skoon. Lieflike uitsig, maar die TV was beperk tot 3 TV-kanale wat bietjie frustrerend is as jy nêrens het om heen te gaan nie.

For that money, you just expect a little more TV channels to keep you busy.

The service was good and everything was clean. Lovely view but the TV was limited to 3 TV channels which is a bit frustrating when you have nowhere to go.

Great host, very nice place, is very clean and you get a lot for your money, wonderful views.

The host was very friendly and accommodating, the facilities were very nice, neat and clean. Ample parking, wonderful views, was a very nice place for our social group. We really enjoyed our stay and would gladly make use of them again. The only downside for us was the braai was for only charcoal and we would have preferred wood. But overall it's an amazing place with a great host and we fully enjoyed our stay.

Baie aangename veilige en rustige verblyf.

Dit was huis weg van die huis af. Ons was vriendelik deur die eienaar verwelkom en gehelp om tuis te raak. Hy was voortdurend behulpsaam gedurende ons 12 dae verblyf. Dit is 'n skoon en veilige verblyf naby aan winkels. Uitsig is baie mooi.

Moet nie jou tyd mors nie.

Ons het die grootste eenheid bespreek met drie slaapkamers, ‘n groot sitkamer en ‘n groot eetkamer, maar die kombuis is apart en vreeslik klein wat jy met al die ander kamers moet deel. Daar is een baie klein yskassie en ‘n stoof met twee plate wat die heeltyd aan en af skakel. Daar is die minimum goed in die kaste wat nie genoeg was eers net vir ons eenheid nie nevermind al die ander mense. As mens die eienaar vra vir letterlik enige iets dan sê hy dat hy nie kan help nie, want hy is maar net ‘n manager nadat hy homself voorgestel het as die eienaar. Hy is vreeslik ongeskik en loop net in jou plek in wanneer hy wil. Hy was geen hulp nie en was lelik as mens hom net vra vir nog toiletpapier toe ons sin uitgehardloop het. Ons het ‘n klein braaitjie aangesteek buite en toe kom sê hy vir ons dat ons moet 10 uur klaar wees en asb. ons ligte dan afsit. Dis ‘n baie mooi plekkie en die ander werkers was baie vriendelik gewees. As daar ‘n nuwe eienaar is kan mens weer die plek probeer maar terwyl die persoon nog in beheer is sal ek dit vir niemand aanraai nie. Hy het dit ‘n baie onaangename naweek gemaak vir ons almal.

Do not waste your time.

We booked the largest unit with three bedrooms, a large lounge and a large dining room, but the kitchen is separate and very small that you have to share with all the other rooms. There is a very small fridge and a stove with two hobs that switch on and off all the time. There are the minimum goods in the cupboards that weren't enough just for our unit, nevermind all the other people. If one asks the owner for literally anything, he says he can not help because he is just a manager after introducing himself as the owner. He is terribly rude and just walks into your place whenever he wants to. He was of no help and was rude when we asked for toilet paper when we ran out of it. We lit a small fire and he came to tell us that we had to finish by 10 o'clock and please put our lights out. It's a very nice place and the other workers were very friendly. If there is a new owner, we can try again, but while this person is still in control, I will not recommend it to anyone. He made it a very unpleasant weekend for all of us.

Arek's Place 's response

Good day Marli,
Thank you for your feedback.
The reservation was done for 6 guests, however, 7 guests arrived. We then spoke to the guest regarding the extra person and they agreed to pay extra. We have never encountered this issue before so the amount was deducted from the deposit. The group did not allow the housekeeper to tidy the rooms. The guest said that they like their privacy which we respected, by not entering the rooms. The owner was out of the property for 2 days. The group arrived with a huge amount of alcohol, hubbly, smoking pipes, etc. preparing for a party which we do not allow. Our place is hardly 1 year old, all our beddings and beds are brand new and comfortable, the rooms are clean and spacious. The kitchen is big enough for our guests but this is not a place to have a party. We are sorry to hear about the unhappiness but we concentrate on creating a quiet and peaceful environment for our clients. For entertainment venues place need to be especially arranged, so we could not bother others guests.
Kind Regards,
Arek's Place

Die negatiewe is meer as die positiewe.

Arek het ons baie vriendelik verwelkom in die baie groot woonstel-opset (ons was 4 grootmense met een tiener). Die uitsig was wonderlik en een van die rustigste plekke wat mens kan indink. Maar die rede hoekom ek dit nie (vir nou) sal aanbeveel nie, is omdat al 3 beddens se linne vol kolle was, die skottegoed van die vorige mense was nie gewas nie (ons moes dit maar doen), dis 'n selfsorg eenheid met net 2 messe en een plastiek teelepel. Daar was darem genoeg van die ander eetgery. Handdoeke was nog op die vloer, daar was geen toiletpapier nie, die plek was vol stof en spinnerakke, en daar is nie regtig privaatheid nie. Daar is kameras buite op die stoep (wat ek kan verstaan vir veiligheids redes), maar daar is kameras binne die huis, in die sitkamer ook. Ons het die probleme onder Arek se aandag gebring. Hoop die volgende mense het 'n meer aangename ondervinding.

The negative is more than the positive.

Arek gave us a friendly welcome in the very large apartment layout (we were 4 adults with one teenager). The view was wonderful and one of the quietest places one can imagine. But the reason why I would not recommend it (for now) is because all 3 beds of linen were full of stains, the dishes of the previous people were not washed (we had to do it), it's a self-catering unit with just 2 knives and a plastic teaspoon. There was enough of the other cutlery. Towels were still on the floor, there was no toilet paper, the place was full of dust and spider webs, and there is no real privacy. There are cameras outside on the veranda (which I can understand for safety reasons), but there are cameras inside the house, in the lounge as well. We brought the problems to Arek. Hope the next guests have a more pleasant experience.

Arek's Place 's response

Dear Mrs Jurine,
Thank you for your remarks, they are very valuable for us and we will keep it in mind.
To advise we clean rooms daily and after every our guest leaving, which includes changing bedding and towels, which are washed every time. Towels are always on the beds or on the shelf in the bathrooms, except dark brown bath floor towel which is next to the shower purposely on the floor, because you stand on it when you finish showering. We always supply toilet paper for our guests, but if happen that you needed more, there is always someone on the property, and as we welcome the guests, I walked to the rooms and show them around, mentioning that if anything not to the expectations, please call us. That is what we are there for, to assist our guests. The same with the kitchen equipment. The kitchen is fully equipped, with the full set of cutlery, dishes, plates, cup, etc, 6 of each, everything in the cupboards in the kitchen. If you needed something more, you should just ask us, we would help with the pleasure.
Arek’s Place is situated on the top of the cliff, and especially now at the end of the winter, we are subject to heavy winds and in spite of our efforts to keep the place clean, if someone leaves the windows or door open, you could see some amount of dust on our dark wooden furniture.
Our place is monitored by civilian system installed by professionals. Cameras are situated only in the common areas for our guests comfort and security. We are trying to provide safe and quiet environment for our guests, where you can rest and enjoy your stay.
Regards,
Eric
