When we first arrived there was no one there just the security guy who was having a nightmare as he could'nt speak english . I must admit my first impression of the apartment was not so so good.In B block there is a major problem with Swifts building their nests over the balconies ( at least 100 birds) so there is mess on the windows and floor around the pool as you can imagine(The pool in A block is up and running , Dobrin thinks the middle pool may be a no go option this year but you never know)in the apartment the floors were dirty and evrything needed a good scrub (you needs a mop and brush)couple of holes in the wall were there should have been sockets and the extractor fan not wired up - These problems have been inherited by the maintenance company and they are trying their very best to put them right . Sean has been hired tocome on site to help solve the problems - he is a good lad and knows what he is doing,his wife is also there landing a hand
I only have a 1 bed apartment and the furniture that i have i can make do with.........i came home happy and can't wait to get back out there . love the village such nice people, love the river its got a real Huckleberry Finn feel to it . The beach is fantastic about 1 mile long and a good surf my kids were in there for 2 hours playing . I could go on for hours about it .

04 Jun, 2008sue ()harry Thanks for the info harry. We will be sure to visit Jimmy's bar! As long as the sun is shining then Im sure it will be fine.

Thanks Sue 
02 Jun, 2008Bernie ()Oasis extract form an email to friends.

Arrived at Varna Airport at 15-30 pm on Friday 16th. Picked up hire car, took the wrong turning out of the airport (so whats new) eventually found the right road and arrived at Oasis at 17-00 pm. When you take the turning for Kamchia off the main road E87 (9) and get your first view of the complex, its quite impressive, (mind you there is nothing else to compare it with, lol's).

On arrival we were given the keys to the apartment and escorted to an english couple (Sean & Nicky) who are overseeing the distribution of the furniture etc. They took us up to the apartment and explained what was and what was not happening.

The apartment is larger than I expected, and is well finished, there are one or two minor problems but all in all We are very pleased with the complex and the apartment.

Before we arrived we knew that there would be things missing that we had ordered. We took a kettle and a couple of cups and some bedding.

In the lounge/kitchen were the promised sofa bed, table and 4 chairs, although they were not of the quality that we had ordered, they will do, coffee table, tv with table, there are vertical blinds on the windows and balcony doors, the kitchen itself is ok with two ring halogen hob, oven/grill, fridge and microwave. The bed is ok, roughly king size, there is a wardrobe and two bedside cabinets, The floors are laminate and look ok, bathroom is all tiled with shower only.

The things missing were 2 lounge chairs, chest of drawers, shower curtain, bedding, cutlery etc, these things will probably not turn up.

Walking round the complex, the pools have just been filled up, the bars/restaurants are very near opening, the complex is neat and tidy but it will look even better in the near future. No tennis courts (not really bothered) Bicycles for hire have turned up (again not really bothered both pursuits are to tiring,lol's)

We have been to a cash and carry and bought bedding, dinner service, towels, pots and pans, cleaning stuff etc etc, basically everything that was needed to live in the place. Cost about 250, Premier BG have sorted out a package for the above 250-300 depending on size of apartment.

A few stats, Varna (driving) 20ks about 20 minutes, airport 28Ks about 30 minutes. Nesobar (Sunny Beach) 60 Ks yes you've guessed it about hour.
We found 3 resturants in the Village of Bliznatsi, the food is good and there is a reasonable choice and one alkies paradise at 40 pence a pint and a little cornershop all within walking distance, loads of resturants if you are driving. Beach is 3 miles away so a car needed. One new hotel on the beach.
 
29 May, 2008Harry ()Sue O Oasis is in a very beutiful area. It just depends on what you want to do on your trip.
I believe that on the complex there is a cafe open and a shop.
The village of Bliznatsi is the nearest village turn left between Oasis and main road, there is a post office, shop Patrincas bar and Jimmys bar where you can meet some ex pats. The owners of Jimmys bar are very knowledgable about the area. I would suggest you hire a car though the beach is about 3 km away.
 
27 May, 2008Sue ()Help! Four of us are going out on the 20th June. Is there anything there??? ie. pubs, restaurants. It's not our apartment so haven't been before! Ive read most comments and it's not looking good.

21 May, 2008Leigh ()Oasis Ap A2-2 I have just visited my apartment at Oasis. I was impressed with the build of my apartment, though progression of the finish has been slow, it is now moving in the right direction. The area that the Oasis is situated in is very nice and has lots of potential 
21 May, 2008Don ()Class Resorts Sounds a class place, nice people, like to take the family out !

21 May, 2008rob wilson ()oasis I have met Ogi and yes he is a Bulgarian bloke ,but i think that we have bought in Bulgaria ,nothing happens fast and they dont understand our way of thinking but give them a chance.  
17 May, 2008owner a2 ()Ogi I have been reading this site for a while keeping up to date on the goings on! I read a few places about Ogi, the complex manager! What a joke!! Admitted PremierBG have some staff on site now and do agrre with the last post that thing are now happening but very slowly! But who is this ogi?
he showed his face for 5 mins when a lorry was on site saw there was work to do and ran off!! There was 5 or six people sorting furniture and about 4 complex workers for the time i was there but no ogi and no one to deal with us owners!
He sound like the normal Bg guy who thinks we are walking wallets ad he doesn't have to work for our pay!! 
17 May, 2008owner b block ()reality I just wanted to put things into perspective here! I don't know who this Suzy is but she is really stretching the truth!
The oasis resort is far from ready for use! We have been this week without reporting our arrival and were shocked!
There are 2 cafes, but not running and no where near ready! The pools were empty and filthy with 1 guy leaning on his brush just watching the day go by!
The Gardener spent more time with the security Guy and with my frequent visits there i saw him do the mowing over 5 days that i could have done in 1.
The place did look clean ish although the only people i think were cleaning looked like 2 gypsies but they had swept round!
2 english were on site from what i gathered they were man and wife in to help sort what furniture is filtering through! I had a brief word with the guy. He called himself Sean and seamed a helpful chap and looked run off his feet but from my wander around they had done a really goood job of distributing the cheap nasty stuff that we have been left to put up with.
There are no bicycles there, no tennis courts, the end of the road cafe is 15 mins walk and the river is a good 40mins and my sunburn from the 55 min walk to the beach proves nothing is within a short walk! HIRE A CAR.
To sum it all up, premier are trying but no one there to keep an eye on the lazy staff and if it wasn't for the 2 english people we would of been destroyed at the sight of our place! They've done a great job with what they have been given and have managed to make nearly all places habitable! If it wasn't for them i would have just wandered in and have had great difficulty in finding my Apartment as there was nobody else there who had a clue who i was or what i wanted!
But be warned, our place had no linen, towels, cuttlery or pots and pans etc, so take your own or try to organize some there before you go, or sleep on bare mattresses and eat out!! 
16 May, 2008kath ()new address they are in sinclair house on station road

Cheadle, its not there,its being developed spoke to a builder ! has anybody got their new address, would like to surprise them with a visit, would like to know why we have not been informed.  
06 May, 2008leigh ()oasis susi, did you say in your own apartment 
04 May, 2008Suzi ()restaurants We didn't try the restaurant at the end of the road - at the junction with the main road - nor did we try any restaurants in Bliznatsi, we only visited for a short time to finalise all the paperwork with the solicitor and the notary etc. We are hoping to go again in July and will try a few more local restaurants then. There is a new small hotel and restaurant right on the beach front at Kamchia which looks interesting but it was not open when we went. 
30 Apr, 2008h ()mark I will send you a pm on my bulgaria 
30 Apr, 2008mark () I am but haven't posted for a while.
Has anyone sorted out the rest of their furniture? 
30 Apr, 2008h ()oasis see you at the airport,are you the mark registered with my bulgaria site 
29 Apr, 2008mark ()flights We fly from Manchester on the same dates as you. Booked it with Balkan Holidays. 
29 Apr, 2008h ()mark Where are you flying from as I am going out on the 6 June returning 13 June 
28 Apr, 2008mark ()restaurants Thanks h. We are going to our apartment on June 6th so we will have to give them a try. 
28 Apr, 2008h ()Mark I have been told that Patrinca's bar in Bliznatsi has good food a 5 min. walk from Oasis and Jimmy's irish bar is supposed to be basic but good meeting place. I don't know anyone who has been in the whitehouse on the corner 2 min. walk as it is new.  
27 Apr, 2008owner () We are going to Oasis in June. Suzi was your appartment fully furnished and di you go the resturant at the end of the road. 
27 Apr, 2008mark ()restaurants Hi Suzi. Did you try any restaurants in Bliznatsi or the one on the main road where the Kamchia road turns off and are they within walking distance?
 
27 Apr, 2008Suzi ()owner K We hired a car for the duration of our trip from carrentalsbulgaria.com telephone +359 52 618 035. They met us at Varna airport with the hire car and because it was dark and we didn't know where we were going they drove to our apartment so we could follow them. They then met us at the airport to collect the car before our return flight. Both times they were ready and waiting for us and were friendly and efficient. All this was at no extra charge above the daily rate for the vehicle.
If you continue past Oasis towards Kamchia and the river we ate out a couple of times at a bar/restaurant on the left hand side, on the riverbank, with tables and chairs outside (or in). It was very popular with locals at the weekend and good for families with a small play area to one side. There was a good ambience, it was busy with more well to do/trendy locals. The menu is completely in Bulgarian and the waiter didn't speak any English. Woncka canara(shopska salata) is excellent there, it is a salad with grated cheese on top. Kabapma( Kavarma) was also good, it is a type of tomato flavoured stew in an earthenware pot. They also had fresh grilled fish which was delicious. The prices of the main courses were around 1.5 to 2 lev(about 70p to 90p) and local beer was 2 lev a bottle.
We also went down to Nessebar and Sunny Beach. Nessebar is worth a visit with many old buildings, a lovely harbour area with lots of restaurants to choose from, it is a Unesci World Heritage site. The prices in Nessebar and Sunny Beach are about 3 times higher than Kamchia and the food is no better, although menus are in English also. We went into Varna several times, there are many restaurants to enjoy(if you are going to visit regularly it would be worth buying a Lonely Planet or similar, or going to the Tourist Info office in Varna. The Opera House in Varna is a nice building and they have concerts etc. on all year except July and August, unfortunately we were unable to get tickets as they had sold out.
Enjoy your trip and don't forget to nod your head for No and shake your head for Yes - or you could be waiting a long time for your beer! 
25 Apr, 2008owner k ()suzi Hi suzi I am due o go out to Oasis can you recomend any places to eat/ go whilst there thanks 
21 Apr, 2008Suzi ()Oasis Development - Kamchia We have just come back from a visit to Kamchia and the surrounding area. We were impressed with the Oasis Development, the aparttments are finished to a high level and look modern and stylish, there is a choice of two cafe/restaurants, secure parking,laundry service and two swimming pools.The Manager of the resort was more than helpful and pleasant. We ate out in several local restaurants which were delicious and very cheap. The beach is lovely golden sand and the river and surrounding countryside are beautiful.There are cycle tracks through the woods and you can hire cycles from the Oasis resort. We found everyone we met to be friendly and helpful. We are very pleased we bought a studio in the Oasis resort and are looking forward to returning in July for a longer stay. 
19 Apr, 2008Leigh ()kamchia I think once it is fully developed this will be a great resort, after visiting last year I have seen all the possibilities. It is much more than a beach resort, it has countryside and woods, ideal for walking and cycling and of course the river with an abundance of wildlife, plants and flowers. none of the new builds can be higher than the trees so it should remain a beautiful area, even when it becomes fully developed in the next few years.  
18 Apr, 2008h owner ()Oasis beach Kamchia is about to take off in a big way with large scale investment Oasis is leading the way in good quality develpments

Moscow Mayor Pours E110 Million into Bulgarian Seaside Resort

Moscow Municipality is about to invest in construction of children's summer camps near the Bulgarian seaside resort of Kamchia. Over the three years to come, Yury Luzhkov's institution will pour 110 million euros into the resort as not long ago it purchased 40 hectares of land, intent on building an international summer complex for children. The project envisages construction of three camps, a cultural center as well as several concert and exhibition halls. There will also be a school where teaching will be in full accord with methods and syllabuses provided by the Russian educational system. Science and technology research labs, two swimming pools, a running track and an ice rink are but a few of the school's facilities, all of which will be designed after the latest fashion.
The complex will be open year round. In summers, it will be a place of rest for Russian pupils and university students, and in winters, sportsmen will come on training camps.
It also emerged that the locally based Kamchia AD are planning to build hotels and villa complexes that will spread over 22 hectares soon. Moreover, certain international companies, according to unnamed sources, were keenly interested in investing into local family housing complexes construction.

17 Apr, 2008whistleblower ()Future of Kamchia I echo the comments of Cliff.
I have heared on very good authority a couple of months ago of big things in Kamchia over the next five years - Parts of the beachside have already started to be boerded up ready for construction work.
 
17 Apr, 2008owner ()zo hi zo , were not paying mentaince untill we sign then ill start paying cuz we dont own untill we sign
 
16 Apr, 2008CLIFF ()KAMCHIA JUST FOUND OUT THAT 200-250 MILLION EUR TO BE INVESTED IN AND AROUND KAMCHIA IN NEXT 2-3 YRS, RESORTS HOTELS ETC 15-20,000 BEDS THIS IS THE NEWS WE WERE EXPECTING AND PUTS OASIS RESORT RIGHT IN THE FOREFRONT OF DEVELOPMENT IN THE AREA, MAYBE NOW PEOPLE WILL REALISE THEY BOUGHT INTO A GOOD COMPLEX 
15 Apr, 2008James () Its good we are all feeling more positive, in this busy world of development, we are very lucky to have a deveolpment in this splended protected area of the world. I do a lot of travelling worldwide and to find an area like this so near to the UK is a massive bonus, and a great location to escape and unwind from our hectic working life.  
14 Apr, 2008steandnev ()oasis Hi Jason if still in england could you email steandnev@hotmail.co.uk regarding inspection would be appreciated good look regards steandnev 
14 Apr, 2008Whistleblower ()Let the good times Roll Well done, Mark H.
Good factual reporting.
I for one am interested in moving forward with positivity. Not interested in all this doom and gloom.
May i suggest to all the negative owners to get out there, visit OASIS and talk to people. Visit your apartments, have a few cheap beers and just chill out.
It'll all be right in the end.
Kamchia realy is a nice place. - A few more bars (soon to come, i hope)will make it even nicer!
 
14 Apr, 2008h ()forum I agree you are free to say what you want but remember the whole world can read them and at the end of the day we want to encourage people to rent our apartments.
I think that many of the comments should have been done via private messages. 
14 Apr, 2008MARK.H ()furiniture new information
the first 45 appartments are ready with the furniture.
more news when i check today in the complex.
cheers 
14 Apr, 2008z ()Maintenance Has anybody paid the maintenance fee, when they still have had no legal deeds from the notary ? 
13 Apr, 2008Fish ()Kath Yabsey This is a forum and we are free to make our comments if we are un happy, and have the choice to do it private. Sounds very much like somebody from BD 
13 Apr, 2008James ()Oasis I thought this was a infomitive adult forum, to post comments on Kamchia, and the surrounding area, what will the tourist think of our complex, when it is all up and running, it all takes time. I dont think I would be tempted to rent reading some comments here. I work in the travel trade and this is not helping the area.
