This is my first post and I will gladly tell you about our WONDERFUL SITE

it is the pits they have dirty and green pools you could not have looked very well pipie, they have just hit us with another 200 bill for changing the water meter into our names this is on top of 800 already paid this is on top of the 30 odd percent increase in fees and they are talking about putting them up again so think on girl

and i nearly forgot

We thought when we all paid our 800 per apartment it was to buy into our own desal plant but now we are being told that the extra 200 is to get the meters transferred into our own names thru the belidere, it seems they now own the plant ?? well 411 X 800 = 328800 and 411 x 200 = 82200 and we seemingly own puff all.

DIRTY ROADS PATHS, UNFINISHED PIPEWORK, LITTER, SPEED BUMPS WITH NO MARKINGS ON THEM,

I could go on but whats the use

Sorry to hear that Punk rocker but we were out there last week and we can honestly say Turtle bay looked nice , they have started planting , the grass looks lovely , we did have a good look around and it appeared to be looking good , i did not swm in the pools , but they looked good from a distance , i did not see dirty roads or any rubbish around , the playground looked good also , i was just interested in the maintainence fees etc as they appear to be doing a good job . Maybe there are other owners out there who could comment ?

Pipie your 'honesty' astounds us I think you need to come over and we will show you personally pipie, we have followed very carefully on this and other forums the sentiments expressed by a few - we will be willing to show you the leaks and mess next to block 10 the collapsing road surface, the mess on the roads and also the mess around 24- 29 - 30 - 31 and the exposed pipes everywhere, we could name more but whats the point, you should maybe have spent a little longer seeing the things that are wrong on Turtle bay, and the unmarked speed hunps ect so why do you want the usual suspects to give you their tuppenceworth we could name them before they even reply, all magnificent seven of them.

The maintenance fees are over 60 a month and rising take that along with all the other expenses we have had to bear for the past year and then say what you are saying, or are you hurting over something else and just want to stir things up - come on lets hear it!!!!!!!!!!!

Punk rocker you obviously have a problem . Can i ask re you're post who are us ? it seems i have touched a sore point with you although i cannot understand what it is ? shame it is people like you who try and openly bully people who just want to pass on info and ask a few simple questions . Shame on you .i wonder if other people could comment on these posts cause it is baffling to say the least .

Pipie asked this forum for advice for which it is for for everyone to share their views and experiences.

It did not warrant your aggressive answer.

Pool at back of my flat is spotless - I swam in it every day week before last

and at least some of the other 5 pools looked pretty clean to me. Many were swimming too including children. Bins were only half full & roads clean. I could see lot of improvements. But, yes, we are not happy with the latest bill they trying to hit us with for water meters when we already paid for desalination plant & meters, nearly 1000

I merely wanted to know why pipie was so interested in out site when she has no connection with it what so ever what does she need to know the fees we are paying, no 2 places are the same, and frankly We are fed up of whingeing brits stirring things up as we have to live here full time and the locals are starting to turn nasty

I really like the lowlighting at Turtle bay , the other touches like the little bridges and the shop you have is so well stocked , sounds expensive though ?

Hi Pippie

We were out there 6 weeks ago and yes the site is looking a lot better than when we were out there earlier in the year.

Our pool was clean and was cleaned twice while we were there.

Bins were emptied and we saw no rubbish around us and we live around the 28/29/30 apt area.

But I have to agree there are still things to sort out and the latest increase for the water needs to be looked into.

We are all back out there the end of August and we will be going to see our solicitor to get her to look at the increase.

Don't be put off by aggressive replies

We are still in love with our dream apartment, can't wait to get back, never want to leave even though we ALL know there are problems.

Hope you,your husband and daughter are all keepig well.

Kind regards

Christine

I need to ask this from you people who said that the pools were all spotless and gave the impression that all was well on site, why has the maintainence of the pools on Turtle bay changed hands recently if they were being kept in such a good and hygienic state,

Toon army I try not to be aggresive but as you can see from our own forum we are being shafted right left and centre, and the truth must come out. at least on some of the other developments locally owners know where they stand and what charges are.

Continued inuendo from pipie and the likes does no good to our cause at all, she just nibbles away and puts backs up.

Lets all bear in mind that we have been asked to pay our maintenance now for over a year so the development should be coming along as any normal minded person would expect, but we still have a builders encampment slap bang in the middle of it.

I for one did not say that all the pools were spoltless, as I know this

has not been the case. There have been problems on some of the 6 pools The pool behind my flat has always been clean every

time I have visited - 8 times in the last 18 months - and have seen them

Firstly I can only comment on what I see when I am there and our pool was clean and was cleaned twice while we were there. However I agree that some of the pools were green, but they were sorted in a couple of days. Also give SM some credit, as if they found the first pool cleaning company was not up to the job, as you have stated, at least they have changed companies ,so let's all hope this one is better.

I agree that not everything is ok with our site but it is still, I feel, the best one in the TRNC and we shoud try and stay friendly with our neighbor's. I have met Pipie and she really is a nice lady and I am sure the inuendo's are not intentional as her daughter has bought on Turquise Bay next door so she does have a genuine interest.

I am going out there the begining of September, so Punkrocker, if you are out there let's meet up for an Efes, after all, with a name like that you, must be my kind of person as I was also a Punk in my younger days.

Kind regards

Chrisitne

Afraid my post didn't come out very well, but you said pretty well what I meant

to say about the pools.

As regards them changing the cleaning company for the pools that hopefully is

a good thing, but I have had a problem with an air conditioner not working since I reported it early July while there, and they told me it was a firm they no

longer deal with who had fitted it. They were supposed to be contacting the old firm, but when my nephew & young family (with baby) arrived on the 3rd this month it was still not done. He reported it & I am hoping it is fixed by now

but no confirmation yet.

All i said was that Turtle beach looks nice , and i asked about cost of fees , now if that upsets you ,Tough I stand by what i say Turtle beach does look nice , now all complexes have teething problems and i dare say Turtle/beach have also . Christine i bet PUNK ROCKER becomes quite reclusive while you are out there , as a matter of interest does punk rocker make himself known on the T/beach forum ???? now this i would really like to know .???

Pipie Not to my knowledge, but may have missed him!

Turtle Bay is lovely, & have met some great neighbours there

Progress is being made but there are some problems to sort out.

I am still happy with my purchase & can't wait to be out on 24th.

Hi Phylray & Christine,

We also like our place on TBV and overall we are pleased with it however there are problems and even as we speak there are still ongoing problems with the pools even the new people cannot cope with the amount of usage certain pools are having and with all the various factors people are using, my point is however why does pipie glorify our complex which is far from complete or satisfactory why does she not direct her feelings etc in the direction they should be, or has she got a vindictive motive for her actions, again she attacks me and would "really like to know" about me and TBV so again I ask what damned business it is of hers unless she just wants to sit behind her keyboard touting for trouble, perhaps she should direct her enthusiasm for the keyboard in a more meaningful and fruitful manner.

my business and nothing to do with you as you cant be on it (or did your friend do you a favour

No wonder people attack you on the forums as you are becoming increasingly objectionable with your continued inuendo.

If you have problems face up to them and get them sorted, we live on TBV and you do not 'SIMPLE' butt out

If you go on the Turtle Bay Owners' forum you will find out more about it

Yes, there are problems with Sharon & I am also waiting for answer to my

query about why they billed me for 6 months maintenance I have already paid

(with increase) & was receipted by them. Over l month ago I reported a/c not

working in main room & now have young relations in with baby & it's still not

fixed, just promises, promises.

Thanks Phylray,

thats disapointing to hear. We met with them in May and they seemed spot on.

I have heard that their server is down, which is equally as worrying.

Havent been granted acces to the owners forum yet.....

Must back up Pipie.As a visitor to TBV and Turquoise whilst visiting Greg at Glencoe and using the supermarket last month.

We both commented on the general state of the developement compared to others we have seen, in particular those from our own developer.

The obvious standards we thought were very high including the external finishes, the layout and the landscaping which was still underway.

As for unmarked speedbumps, they make you drive more slowly if you cant remeber where they are thus doing their job and protecting you and your children.

Hi just come back from TBV. Yes there are teething problems and we had a problem with our pool - it was looking slightly dirty but have to say some kids were walking on the soil and then jumping straight into the pool without showering and being honest all the kids had lots of sun cream on which can't help at all. I have heard the SM changed pool companies to try and help the owners out and improve the service. I told SM I thought the pool was looking a bit misty and within 10 minutes someone from the new pool cleaning company was there trying to sort the problem out.

I came across a couple who have had a few problems with SM but they said in all honesty they felt the problems werent necessarily with SM but should be more directed at the developer i.e. lights around pools not consistently on, lack of grass, snagging problems. We were told by a friend who has lived in TRNC for many years that he felt TBV is developing quicker than most developments and once it is all completed it will be a great place and hopefully all the teething problems will be sorted and we can all start to get along because at the moment there is a lot of bickering on the owners forum and yes people are concerned but I think in time these issues will be resolved if all us owners can work as a team and not against each other. This doesnt stop people feeling anxious though but we have to appreciate we are in another country and things are done at a slightly slower pace than the UK. Nevertheless we had a great time out there as always and many people who were renting said how lovely it will eventually look.

People who dont own on TBV have to appreciate that some of the owners are upset and maybe some of the comments on here are just their way of letting off steam.

There are big problems with management. Repair to a/c not fixed after

over a month is a pretty basic thing in the heat there at present.

Would they like to work in such condition?

Hi Phyllis - It must be a nightmare without air conditioning. We really relied on ours - isnt this more of a problem for KD rather than SM to sort out as this would come under snagging??

I have heard that SM are being given snagging lists as a means of communication with KD but they are only passing on work sheets so at the end of the day its then down to KD to fix these problems. I know several people with snagging issues - even we have some but are told only urgent ones are being done now and others will be done during the guarantee period.

The people we made friends with are enquiring about an apartment there too as they really love it there.

Hi BHW - Yes, it is not for me as I am used to even greater heat but young

family there. I know what is happening as I reported it first to KD & Ali told me

that they no longer use the firm that supplied the first a/cs - Airfel, but they would call them. I feel really embarrassed as I would have thought after more

than a month it would be fixed for my nephew & family. He says all is really

excellent, but still it can't be too comfy for them.

Have just returned from TBV as a renter. It was great and are now thinking of buying (very seriously). A couple of days with no pool but it was not a problem as just had to cross the road for another one. Maybe this is not what your paying for but even the top class hotels we have stayed in the past have pool problems. Made some great friend whilst we were there and if w don't buy will certainly revisit as renters if possible.

Hi TB purchasers,as one of the Thalassa buyers if you've had any experiences of dealing with Kensington that you think we might need/like to know can you drop by http://www.thalassaowners.com and let us know,as we are all now paying our first installments,as the building pace is frighteningly quick.



Cheers,



Stu

Im just back from TBV and most impressed by the planting and general site improvements. We have had to wait a bit for the snagging mainly because we targetted SM who merely pass on the sheets. To get results you need to see the impressive Ali Guler working for Kensington who delivered the goods on time with a friendly smile and repeat telephone calls to confirm it had been done. Pools were clean, our first aparment clean was excellent, and the supermarket was reasonable and well stocked.
