Excellent property

  • 5 of 5

Thanks Tracey, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Sea La Vie. We booked as a base for our family for our daughters wedding. Both the home and gardens were beautifully presented and were perfect for family photos. Rooms are spacious and there was plenty of room for us all inside and out. Thank you for the bubbles in the fridge and fresh flowers, a nice touch. Close to the beach and Jetty Rd cafe's and shopping.

Misleading listing, access to studio unavailable

  • 2 of 5

We are a family of 4 adults who selected this property as it was large enough to accommodate our needs of 4 separate bedrooms. However we were disappointed on arrival that we did not have access to the studio (it was locked). The owner informed us that the main house sleeps 6, and therefore our needs were met by the main house. The owner implied by text that our party was larger than 4, but this was not the case. I was informed that we could have access to the studio, at an increased cost, but I was unwilling to pay extra for access to part of the property that to the best of my knowledge was included in the premium I had paid. The listing specifies that the property is "Sea La Vie - the house and studio", and that it has 5 beds. There is no indication on the listing that the studio is not available to groups of a certain size, nor did I receive any communication from the owner before my arrival that this would be the case. Very disappointed.

Owner's Response: There are concerns around the accuracy of this review and we would like to clarify the facts pertaining to your recent visit with your husband and 2 adult children. Firstly "The Studio" is available to all guests who stay at Sea La Vie and the details of this room are clear and transparent under the property description on this site. It states that if guest numbers are 4 or less an additional nightly cleaning fee applies to this room. The Studio was made available to you at anytime during your stay and you declined, stating that you would "make do". You stated that you paid a paid a premium for your accommodation when in fact that is incorrect. The rate that you paid was a heavily discounted off peak tariff. The Studio is locked when not in use or if no guests are in residence as it is accessed separately from the main house. We would also point out that at no time did we infer that your guest numbers were more than 4 persons. We merely needed clarification to enable us to configure the beach house to accommodate your needs. There was no request for separate rooms nor was it specified on your booking request that we received from Stayz. It was only after you left our property that you emailed us to say that your family had very specific accommodation requirements. Your email also stated that "regardless of whether or not we wished to use the bed, it is another room that could be used by us as a living room." The Studio is a beautifully appointed French inspired bedroom and is NOT a living room. We have a large entertaining deck right outside from the room and a lounge room in the main house. Despite this and the fact that we maintain a high standard of guest satisfaction we offered your family a complimentary stay when you next visit Adelaide - to which we were not afforded the courtesy of a reply. Sea La Vie is not a "2 Star" rated property. We have in excess of sixty "5 Star" reviews from other accommodation sites and private bookings with glowing feedback and many repeat bookings. We aim at making every guests visit a memorable and happy time. Unfortunately on his occasion we did not. We hope that you find a property that will suit your specific needs more appropriately when next you travel. Tracey Malloy

What a fantastic property. Great location with everything at your finger tips to go out and about or just relax and soak up the well appointed home. Ease of access was seamless and property owner easily contactable. Would whole heartedly recommend a stay at Sea La Vie - all your needs catered for.
