Naby aan die strand, die eenheid kort aandag. Personeel was vriendelik en behulpsaam.

Die plek lyk glad nie soos op die webwerf geadverteer nie en kort heelwat aandag. Braaiers is opgeroes.

Close to the beach, the unit needs attention. Staff were friendly and helpful.

The place does not look at all as advertised on the website and needs a lot of attention. Fryers are rusted.

Badkamers, kombuis en braai-area kort dringend aandag, andersins was kuier gerieflik.

Badkamers: By hoofslaapkamer is toilet, stort en wasbak in 'n baie klein spasie ingedruk. Stort is helfte van normale stort. Toilet tussen wasbak en muur en teen badkamerdeur. Geen gemaklike sit nie. Alle toiletsitplekke was los. Hangkasdeure kort aandag. Kombuis se eetgerei was alles vuil en te min vir 6 gaste, geen braaitange, braaivleisbak, ens. Braai-area: Braaiers swak en val uitmekaar. Roosters vol gate en vuil. Te min sitplek. Parkeerarea te klein en word gebruik as werkswinkel om karre te herstel. Alle vertrekke kort lugversorging. Beddens in 2 kamers kort dringend vervanging.

Bathrooms, kitchen and braai area need urgent attention, otherwise visiting was comfortable.

Bathrooms: In the master bedroom, toilet, shower and sink are squeezed into a very small space. Shower is half of normal shower. Toilet between sink and wall and against bathroom door. No comfortable sitting. All toilet seats were loose. Hanging wardrobe doors need attention. Kitchen utensils were all dirty and too few for 6 guests, no grill tongs, barbecue tray, etc. Grill area: Grills weak and falling apart. Grids full of holes and dirt. Too few seats. Parking area too small and used as a workshop to repair cars. All rooms lack air conditioning. Beds in 2 rooms urgently need replacement.

Gelukkig was ons nie daar die heel naweek nie.

Ons het Vrydagaand laat daar opgedaag. Die dame wat ons ontvang het was baie vriendelik en hulpvaardig. Daar was 'n partytjie in die gebou wat tot baie laat aangegaan het en die volgende oggend het my 13 jarige seun (wat wou gaan swem het) saam met my man afgekom op 'n klomp naak dames in die swembad, wat nog suggesties maak dat hulle by die dames moet aansluit.

Luckily we weren't there all weekend.

We arrived there late on Friday evening. The lady who received us was very friendly and helpful. There was a party in the building that went on until very late and the next morning my 13-year-old son (who wanted to go swimming) came across a bunch of naked ladies in the pool with my husband, who still make suggestions that they must join the ladies.

Accommodation was okay, economical, the fact that it is so close to the beach is an added benefit.

The flat needs upgrading, very outdated. We struggled with ants especially in the kitchen. We had very loud neighbours. Other than that, is was clean and had everything that we needed. We will definitely stay there again.

Beveel glad nie aan

More. Baie dankie dat ek die geleentheid gekry het om deur jul te boek. Ons het nooit in Doonside gebly nie, maar wel in Beveleue Court. Yskas maak nie koud nie - ons koue kosse was bederf, en beddens uiters swak - beddegoed was nie skoon nie. Wat jy op Doonside se blad sien, kan jy nie vergelyk met die werklikheid nie. Sal weer deur jul book, maar glad nie Doonside nie. Baie dankie, groetnis, Annatjie (0844140337).

Do not recommend at all

Tomorrow. Thank you very much for giving me the opportunity to book through you. We never stayed in Doonside, but we did stay in Beveleue Court. Fridge doesn't get cold - our cold foods were spoiled, and beds extremely poor - sheets were not clean. What you see on Doonside's page, you cannot compare with reality. Will book through you again, but not Doonside at all. Thank you very much, greetings, Annatjie (0844140337).

I honestly wish this guest had mentioned something about these problems to us when they were staying with us. We have checked the fridge, it is working properly and the following guests have found it to be fully serviceable. We are very careful with all our bedding and make absolutely sure it is properly laundered and clean, our laundry is washed by a professional laundromat and is not done in-house.
As per our advert, Doonside Holiday Flats consists of 2 blocks of flats being Doonside Flats and Bellevue Court, this guest stayed in the Bellevue Court block. Our photographs are displayed as they were taken and have not been touched up or edited in any way.

Gerieflike, gemaklike verblyf met ruimte.

Baie lekker verblyf met goeie gasvryheid van Doug en Lucky, altyd bereid om te help! Naby die strand en baie veilig. Net 'n paar aanbevelings sou wees om te kyk na die waterdrukking in woonstel 2. Die stort werk nie omdat die warmwaterdrukking te laag was. Daar was geen groenteskillertjie in die woonstel nie, anders as dit was alles baie goed. Dankie vir die bederf en die skoonmaak en skottelgoed was elke dag wat ingesluit is. My vrou het behoorlik gerus!

Comfortable accommodation with lots of space.

Very nice accommodation and warm hospitality from Doug and Lucky. Always ready to help. Close to the beach and very safe. One recommendations would be to look at the water pressure in Flat 2. The shower didn't work due to the low water pressure. There was no vegetable peeler in the flat. Otherwise it was good. Thank you for the spoil and the clean and washing dishes every day, which is included. My wife had a lovely rest!

Gerieflik, gemaklik en veilig!

Die woonstel is lekker groot, skoon en netjies. Lucky (die "opsigter") was baie vriendelik en behulpsaam. Dit is ook daagliks skoongemaak (groot pluspunt). Braaigeriewe en swembad was lekker om te hê. Dit is ook baie veilig en daar was elke dag lewensredders aan diens by die strand (loopafstand). Al wat ek sal aanbeveel is 'n ekstra pot en pan en 'n braaibak. Maar ek beveel dit beslis aan en sal self ook weer daarvan gebruik maak.

Convenient, comfortable and safe!

The apartment was quite big, clean and neat. Lucky (the "caretaker") was very friendly and helpful. It was also cleaned daily (big plus). Braai facilities and swimming pool were nice. It's also very safe and lifesavers were on duty at the beach (walking distance) daily. The only thing I would recommend is an extra pot, pan and braai dish. But I definitely recommend it and wil also use it again myself.

Renovation.

We had a lovely time. The place need some renovations though. One bed was broken. The shower doors falls apart when opening or closing. The toilet was not flushing properly which my husband fixed. Apart from that it is a very nice holiday spot. Close to the beach and the flats is has a nice view and is very spacious. Thank you to Lucky for his friendly service.

Ons het baie lekker gebly.

Dit was lekker om so naby die strand te wees. Die woonstel was baie gerieflik. Dit is net jammer dat daar nie 'n buitestort was om al die seesand af te spoel nie. Ongelukkig moes ons die bad/stort gebruik vir die doel, en dit het my laat wonder of die sand nie die rioolstelsel affekteer nie. Daar kan 'n bietjie opknapwerk gedoen word, soos die krane in die bad wat gelek het, en die mikrogolf wat bietjie oud al is. Ons het baie lekker gebly, en sal dit aanbeveel vir enige persoon. Ons was net teleurgesteld in die Amanzimtoti Munisipaliteit. Die strate was baie vuil en vol plastieksakke en ander gemors, en daar is gemors oral in die riviere. Ons hoop hulle kan verbeter. Die strande was baie mooi skoon, en word gereeld skoongemaak. Ons het ook lewensredders elke dag op die strand gehad wat na ons veiligheid omgesien het.

We had a very nice stay.

It was nice to be so close to the beach. The apartment was very comfortable. It's just a shame there wasn't an outside shower to wash off all the sea sand. Unfortunately we had to use the tub/shower for that purpose, and it made me wonder if the sand was affecting the sewage system. There could be some renovation work done, such as the faucets in the bath which were leaking, and the microwave which is a bit old. We had a great stay, and would recommend it to anyone. We were just disappointed in the Amanzimtoti Municipality. The streets were very dirty and full of plastic bags and other rubbish, and there was rubbish everywhere in the rivers. We hope they can improve. The beaches were very clean and cleaned regularly. We also had lifeguards on the beach every day looking after our safety.

Dear Jansie, many thanks for the review. We have the Microwave ovens listed for replacement during this year and we are continuously replacing washers in the taps during general maintenance. This is one item that doesn't seem to last too long down here.
Concerning the issues with the municipality, there is little we can do about this problem as they become seriously overwhelmed over the festive season. Also, this is really not something that should be addressed in these reviews as they have nothing to do with the establishment.

Het 2 keer gekla oor 'n yskas wat nie werk nie, en elke keer is ek net geïgnoreer. 'n Yskas is noodsaaklik. Het 'n paar keer kos weg gooi wat af gegaan het omrede die yskas nie werk nie, en nie ons nie plek daarvoor gehad het in die koelerboks nie.

Your compliant was not ignored at all. We checked the fridge on the same day and found you had filled it with warm items. Along with the high climate temperatures all fridges battle under these conditions. The second time you complained we replaced the fridge with a more powerful unit and we were told there was no further problem. The fridge we removed from your flat was cleaned and used in another flat the next day and it worked well because the guests in that flat put cold items in it and only opened the door when necessary.
We have seen many times that if guests fill an empty fridge with warm items it really battles to run efficiently, especially in the hot temperatures we have experienced recently.

Was 'n week daar. Sentraal geleë en veilig.

Sal Doonside Holiday Flats sterk aanbeveel. Jy's naby aan alles en dis baie veilig.

Die woonstelle is perfek geleë, naby die strand en sentraal.

Die woonstelle was goed geleë, alhoewel die matrasse beter dae gesien het. Anders dink ek net die mure kan doen met 'n paar portrette vir 'n meer huislike gevoel. Die res was alles soos wat mens sou verwag van vakansie verblyf.

Translate to English.

The apartments are perfectly located, close to the beach and central.

The apartments were well located, although the mattresses had seen better days. Otherwise I think just the walls could do with some portraits for a more homely feel. The rest was all as one would expect from holiday accommodation.

Dough het uit sy pad gegaan om ons by te staan en behulpsaam te wees.

Uitstekende waarde vir geld. Het baie lekker gekuier en die strand is loopafstand wat dit veilig en maklik vir my vrou en kind gemaak het om te gaan baljaar terwyl ek by ons kantoor gewerk het.

Het verblyf baie geniet.

Hoewel die fasiliteit baie skoon en netjies was, kan die eienaar dalk daaraan dink om dit bietjie te moderniseer en vernuwe.

Baie lekker gebly. Skoonmaakdienste elke dag is 'n lekker bederf!

Baie lekker dat dit loopafstand van die strand af is. Baie netjiese woonstel. Word elke dag skoongemaak en skottelgoed gewas - lekker bederf. Sal beslis weer daarheen gaan. Prys is ook billik.

Baie netjies en gemaklik.

Ek sal Doonside weer gebruik, en ook aanbeveel. Die strand is naby. Die skoonmaakmense is betroubaar en kan onderhandel oor skoonmaaktye. Die parkering is veilig, maar spasie kan 'n probleem raak. Daar is 'n treinspoor naby die woonstelle ... dit was vir ons geen probleem nie, inteendeel, het na 'n paar interessante gesprekke geluister. Die woonstel was skoon, netjies en besonder goed (mooi) onderhou, veral vir 'n plekkie by die kus. Dankie, ek kom weer.

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

Very neat and comfortable.

I would use Doonside again, and also recommend. The beach is close. The cleaning people are reliable and can negotiate cleaning times. The parking is safe, but space can be an issue. There is a train track near the apartments... it was no problem for us, on the contrary, listened to some interesting conversations. The apartment was clean, tidy and exceptionally well (nicely) maintained, especially for a place by the coast. Thanks, I'll be back.

THIS was by far the most enjoyable holiday that i have had at the sea in ten years. Accommodation was very nice, hospitality outstanding and services rendered excellent. I would most certainly recommend to friends and am definitely going to holiday there again next year. Doug, you really know how to make visitors feel at home. Thank you again.

Dit was lekker en rustig.

Ons dink hul kan beddens vervang. Ons het ook 'n dubbelbed in hoofslaapkamer verwag en is teleurgestel met twee enkelbeddens. Hulle kan dalk dink aan waaiers. Die afdakke vir karparkering is 'n moet! Verder was die woonstelle lekker ruim en goed geleë in 'n rustige omgewing naby die see.

It was nice and peaceful.

We think they can replace beds. We also expected a double bed in the master bedroom and were disappointed with two single beds. They might think of fans. The canopies for car parking are a must! Furthermore, the apartments were nice and spacious and well located in a quiet environment near the sea.

Ruim woonstel wat goed toegerus is. Ouerige gebou, maar netjies.

Dis baie gerieflik dat jy net 'n klein entjie se stap van die strand af is. Woollies Food is minder as 1 km vanaf woonstel. Dis baie gaaf dat skottelgoed een keer per dag gewas word. Daar is slegs vier woonstelle, dus is daar nie 'n samedromming van mense nie.
