Guests that stayed at this property said

The property is generally praised for its cleanliness, with guests finding it to be clean and well-maintained. However, there were some concerns about the hot tub's cleanliness, which slightly affects the score.

The location is highly regarded for its incredible views and easy access to the beach and local attractions. The convenience of the location contributes to a high score.

While the property is appreciated for its overall comfort, several guests have mentioned that the beds were too hard for their liking, which impacts the comfort score.

The property is well-equipped with modern facilities, including a hot tub and ample room. However, some guests reported maintenance issues with the hot tub, doors, and heating, which affects the score.

There is no mention of gifts or special touches that would indicate thoughtfulness from the hosts. Therefore, this category cannot be scored.

  • Barrie

    Views over car park. Generally dark inside. Average fittings. Overpriced compared to Starboard just below.

  • Kyle

    We really enjoyed our stay. The house is in a great location as you well know. All of the goods inside are excellent quality but the main thing that lets the property down is the bifold doors. They have been misused and unfortunately are so hard to open we didn’t bother most of the time. These would really need replacing. As the property is rented out many people are not educated on how to open and close them properly and they damage the rubber gaskets at the bottom. That’s exactly what has happened here and the tracks are rusty so they don’t even slide anymore. There are doors that would be better suited to this and I would be happy to explain if you did ever consider changing them. Other than this we would definitely recommend the property and even consider returning in the future.

    Also extremely disappointed to having them claim the good housekeeping bond for a mattress, a child’s mattress that had a useless protector on and not a waterproof protector which if are a good quality one they are very comfortable and not noisy, which is why they said they don’t supply them. I’m sure most customers would agree instead of being charged hundreds of pounds they would prefer a waterproof cover.
