H Ceas Villa - Reader Reports & Opinion
Rejean Sewlal from Canada visited in February 2009 and awarded
Location is great -walking distance from Store Bay, great restaurants, etc.
Hosts are very friendly and helpful.
Rates are very reasonable.
Apartment itself was large and well appointed, but floors dusty, furniture dirty and older bathrooms were in need of a good scrubbing.

Cynthia and Horace are a strange couple. They seem to disagree on most things, which at first was comical, but got tiring fast.
The place at first look, and from the outside, is nice. Convenient walking to either Store Bay or Pidgeon Point beaches, or a taxi to Bucco and beyond.
Horace and Cynthia picked us up from Scarborough, and waited for us when the ferry was late. Very kind. They also gave us a ride to the Pennysaver store, and to the airport to pick up our friend the next day.
However, Horace nickeled and dimed us throughout. Charged us $10 more per night for our friend, who was made to sleep on a mattress on the floor. Offered kitchen cooking facilities, but said that they did not provide washing soap to wash the dishes. Nor salt or oil or anything but the pots and plates and silverware. OK.
The place was also not very clean . You could see the dust on the ceiling fan blades even in the dark, it was so thick. They never came and cleaned the rooms, nor provided even a broom to us, the entire week we were there. By the end, everything was disgusting, with beach sand and damp towels everywhere. Not even a floor mat by the front door.
I think the couple may have once provided a good place, but it is now run down. I don't recommend it. We were glad to leave. We realized from the first day that we didn't like it, but they wouldn't return our money, so we had to stay the full 5 days, even though they didn't have any other guests or prospects waiting for our room and we gave notice on day one of 5.

We arrived at 17.th of October 2007 and got a pick up from the airport. Stayed 2 weeks at H Ceas Villa. It was the warmest, most friendly place we could ever had. Very familiar. Cynthia asked us every day if we had anything to know or to need ( fresh towels or bags for trash ) to tell her. In every situation - need an umbrella or a ride to the supermarket - she and her husband where there for us.
Many thanks for these two weeks amazing holidays.
Thank you Cynthia for your hospitality. We love to come back to you again on our next holidays !!

My family and I, seven of us including two budding teenaged girls... had no complaints about H CEAS Villa, enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend it to anyone seeking a cosy home away from home.
Very comfortable, tidy and spacious with more than affordable rates. Cynthia was extremely friendly (^_^) and was always available if we needed anything at all, even just for information about where to shop, etc. or for a friendly chat on a cool, breezy afternoon.
It's located in a beautiful, quiet neighbourhood, walking distance from breathtaking beaches such as Store Bay and Pigeon Point and there's a Republic Bank not far away, the airport and lots of small shops.

The accommodation was very clean, spacious and the price was great. All ammenities were present. Most of all the owners of the property were very hospitable. I will recommend this place to my friends and I will return.
