2 bedroom, 2 bathroom (one en-suite) split level apartment
Why Karen Banwell chose Roker
My two apartments were chosen because of their high specification and their position on the sea front. They are in arguably the best spot on the whole seafront. Close to the lighthouse. Opposite the entrance to a path leading directly down to a sandy beach and several places to eat and drink. Close to bus stops. Amazing sea views. Comfortable and quiet.

Wonderful apartment in a perfect location
This apartment is lovely and the view from the window and access to the waterfront are ideal. Beds were comfortable, and the apartment was warm, even in January. Karen, the owner responded quickly to all emails. The independent Cole Coffee Shop is directly across the street and serves amazing coffee. There is a wonderful Italian restaurant and a great pub just a block away. We walked everywhere we needed to go, including to the National Glass Center, which we highly recommend. We were lucky with sunny, warm-for-January weather for two days. I got up early for sunrise photos from the pier and was back in the apartment within twenty minutes. We also walked along the oceanfront to the local parks. Roker is wonderful and the apartment is just fabulous!
It’s a lovely property with simply stunning views
The property was very clean and well equipped
We had everything we needed for our stay and really enjoyed the walks by the sea
Wicked awesome....loved my stay! Very comfortable, clean and quiet! Loved, Loved, Loved the location! Would return in a heartbeat! Very smooth entry and exit from property! Found property just as described and easy access to a beach full of seaglass! I was over the moon. Thank You Karen!
We stayed for eight weeks, and were very happy with the unit. The views from the bay window are fabulous, while we were there, we watched the tall ships arrive and then leave again,also the air show. We didn’t have to leave the house to see all of this. We stayed here for six weeks in 2016 and if we return to England again, we would definitely stay here again. It is close to bus stops, right on the beach and in walking distance to eating places.
Nice and clean brilliant sea view
The position of this property is fantastic, although our overall impression was somewhat spoilt because of extreme weather which resulted in leaks from the bay window. We also had a problem with the shower in the en-suite. Having said this we cannot fault the owner's response to these difficulties as she made a personal visit to try and sort out the shower and had previously had remedial work done to the bay window. However, the décor and cleanliness are of a high standard and the beds comfortable
Thank you for the positive comments you have made. I am so glad you enjoyed our decor, cleanliness, comfortable beds and also our 'fantastic' location.
I'm sorry the weather was so dramatic during your stay. We do get some wonderful weather, often at unexpected times of year, and our beach is second to none for walks and traditional seaside activities. In bad weather we often get storm chasers and keen photographers, who love to see the waves lashing high over the lighthouse. These amazing seas can be viewed from the windows of our flats, in the comfort of their living rooms.
I'm sorry there were two repair issues during your stay. Thank you for pointing out our prompt response to these. The shower has had a new thermostatic bar fixed and is now back to normal functionality. We have now discovered that the bay window roof leak was due to some cracks appearing in the outside render above the roof, which allowed water ingress in driving rain. These have been sealed and there has been no sign of water reappearing - even during a subsequent violent downpour.
To reassure future guests, please can I point to our overall five star/10/10 review status on this and other sites. With the best will in the world, all properties will have the occasional repair issue. What matters is the owner's response to these. We feel we are always worth 10/10 for this service. We have been renting these two apartments for approximately 3 years now, and repair requirements have been rare occurrences.
