Waimarie is one of the most homely villas we have inspected. It’s incredibly well thought out for families, with absolutely loads to do even on a rainy day (heaven forbid). What really struck us as sensible is that all the day-time lounging areas make the most of the beach and views, whilst the bedrooms are set behind in lovely mature gardens which provide more privacy. The bedrooms are so practical for families – connecting rooms, twin with kings, but each still having a huge bathroom. Perhaps the connecting door could be a bit more sound-proofed.
The baths are huge enough to take five or six kids (or two adults) with ease. Use the shower every other day to appease your environmentally-aware conscience. The common areas are excellent – a little well used in places but not in a frustrating way. There are loads of places to curl up in with a good book but also keep an eye on proceedings. Home away from home is a much overused term but we think this is very applicable for Waimarie. Warm, friendly, secure and incredibly homely.

Highlights

When you have a stunning white beach and turquoise water it is difficult to really pick out anything else. What is nice though is how the villa has maximised the experience – it can be enjoyed over mealtimes, playtime and down time. The staff can make or break a villa vacation – in this case it is a definite make. Khun Joy is literally a real Joy. Her happy outlook and continuous willingness to help made our stay perfect. Be careful though she bakes a wicked chocolate cake!

Surprises

The staff at the villa are delightful and incredibly helpful but only the charming Khun Joy speaks fluent English so direct your requests through her. This is generally not an issue as Joy is ever present and takes great pride ensuring that guests enjoy their Waimarie experience. Joy will also arrange any outside activities, transport etc. Some guest may be disappointed that there are no TVs or stereos in the bedrooms but we spent so much time around the pool it hardly seemed an issue.

The villa is a perfect destination for our family holiday. There is something for everyone here from the private beach, swimming pool, tennis court to the incredible service by the staff here. Professional and attentive, we feel we got all amenities at our finger tips. The chef, oh the chef food was fantastic, top quality gourmet standard! I would recommend this villa to our friends and hope to be here again sometime.

Unfortunately Christian had a serious accident, needing two operations, that was difficultly for all of us, but ...we could not have been in better hands. Thank you!

The review is from a 7 years old kid: I have a amazing vacation here, we feed elephants (elephants smells not stinky), the restaurant owner has 5 dogs, they are fat and cute, I love them. Grandpa played the swing with me under the tree, I was flying and so happy. Dad and me swimming in the villa pool. After that we took a boat to go fishing, the captain caught lots of fishes, hope we can be good like him next time. We have a nice time here. I will study harder and get back to here again. Thanks all. LI ZI

Thank you so much to Joy and the team at Waimarie for a wonderful, relaxing, delicious 3 weeks. Joy's hospitality and creativity (with lots of special surprises) contributed to making our stay truly memorable. The food was exquisite, fresh, tasty and healthy, a great chef.
