The apartment is praised for being well-equipped, light, and airy, with the added bonus of board games. While parking can be challenging during peak season, the property's modern comforts and cleanliness contribute to a delightful stay.

Guests that stayed at this property said

The property is mentioned as clean and comfortable, indicating high standards of cleanliness that guests appreciate.

The location is highly praised for its stunning views and proximity to the town centre and beach, though the steep hill may be a challenge for some, slightly affecting the score.

Guests describe the apartment as cosy, modern, and well-equipped, suggesting a comfortable and enjoyable stay.

The apartment is noted to be well-equipped and maintained, with the provision of board games being a thoughtful touch. However, no specific mention of maintenance issues or the state of facilities leads to a slightly reduced score.

While guests appreciate the board games, there is no mention of gifts, and therefore it is not possible to assess the level of thoughtfulness in this context.

    Lovely property clean and comfortable. Brilliant view but parking was a bit of a nightmare in July

  • mrs janye whitmore

    Perfect all round. There is a very steep hill from beach/ town to cottage definitely not suitable for anyone with mobility or health problems. Otherwise loved our stay
