What makes this Villa unique
The Lake House is uniquely positioned alongside one of the lakes in the Samaan Grove development, allowing guests to enjoy the serene waterside atmosphere and scenery. Nature lovers will enjoy seeing the local bird life around the lake as they feed and play in and around the water. As the lake's water is not stagnant and the lake is full of fish, there is never a mosquito problem due to the proximity to the lake. No fishing or swimming is permitted at the lake.

Nice place just not so clean.
We have stayed at other villas in samaan grove as we really like the area. Staying at this villa there was still party trash in the back yard and hair in the showers / bathroom. Floor also was a bit dirty. When we walked it smudged the floors as it may have been washed with a dirty mop.
Mosquitoes were a huge headache but understandable for this time of year.
The house was in good shape otherwise.
Side note: many villas have basic salt and pepper or coffee filters etc that were left by previous guests but not this one. Just something else to consider as we had to buy everything to cook breakfast.
Thank you Jonathan for your valued feedback. We do agree, Samaan Grove is a beautiful community to enjoy a vacation. We are happy to address your concerns. Upon walk through check-in, only 2 concerns were voiced - the trash and the bottles of water by the A/C compressor outside of the villa. Guest's had checked out the day before Jonathan's Monday arrival. The schedule for trash pick-up (which is beyond our control) in Samaan Grove is as follows - Saturdays,Tuesdays,and Thursdays. The schedule was communicated to him and as stated, it was collected on Tuesday. In reference to the 'party trash' , there were 3 bottles of water on the ground by the A/C compressor outside, of which we removed right away. We take ownership of this oversight and we will address this issue with all service providers for the villa, thanks for alerting us of the fact upon sight.
This review is our first time reading about hairs in the shower/bathroom and of the floor being dirty. This was never communicated to us. We would have appreciated a call during the stay as it would have been addressed immediately. In addition, we will be communicating to the housekeeping staff.
Sorry about your experience with mosquitoes. We do live on an island and it is rainy season. Typically mosquitoes are not an issue as some frogs dine on the larvae. Nonetheless we do advise to minimize bites, keep the doors closed as well as apply necessary sprays when outside of the villa.
Lake House is a self catering villa, as such our amenities do not include pantry items as indicated on this platform. Again, if communicated to the property managers they would have been more than happy and eager to make your stay as pleasant as possible. Wishing you the best in your future stays in Samaan Grove.
Beautiful and relaxing
This villa is a home away from home. It is equipped with everything you need for your relaxing vacation, even games and novels to read. The view from the patio of the pond was breathtaking, I can simply sit there for hours enjoying nature. The villa is situated in a safe and peaceful environment but it is also in close proximity to the airport and shopping centres. The house is just splendid, no-one wanted to return home...I wish I could have extended our stay. I will definitely stay here again.
Truly happy you had a wonderful time at The Lake House Kathy-Ann :) We look forward to hosting you in the future.
Life in Paradise.
My family had a wonderful time and enjoyed the comforts the villa had to offer. It met our needs and did not fall short of anything that was needed. From the availability of the laundry facility that accommodated the needs of my large family to the spacious family areas both inside and out made out gathering even better. The kids had a wonderful time in the pool and the little ones enjoyed getting up to the beauty of seeing the birds at the lake. As a cook, I was pleased to have access to being able to grill and cook local cuisines for my family. The location was ideal to get to the beautiful beaches and day excursions to other parts of the island. We had a wonderful time and are looking forward with great anticipation to our next family get together.
Maria it was a pleasure to host your family and we are thrilled you had a blast at The Lake House. Thanks for taking the time to review us, we appreciate it. See you guys again!
Wowing!!! Wish we could have stayed longer :)
Life is definitely better at the lake! The views are breathtaking. Our stay at the lake house was short and sweet (3 nights). Tricia was friendly and flexible when we needed her. We felt secure and right at home. The security personnel at the gate was always friendly and personable. The home was exactly as pictured, the lake is beautiful and serene and may I add no mosquitoes :)We were so excited to see a caiman but unfortunately we didn’t (maybe next time). The villa is aesthetically beautiful inside and out.
I absolutely adored this location. It was so peaceful and relaxing. The host was gracious enough to pick all of us up from the airport upon request. I would choose this location again in a heartbeat.
