Holiday by the sea

  • 5 of 5

The flat was spacious and very clean. 2 minutes and you were at the beach, 5 minutes you were shopping. Great to have a view of the sea from the window. Would definitely look to rent this property again in the future.

nice place

  • 3 of 5

We were happy with the location. Super close to beach and town. Parking was full most of the time so we had to park down the street. Not a problem but just thought I'd mention. My boys loved all the rooms. My only negative feedback is that it didn't seem super clean. The kitchen cupboards were messy with condiments and cleaning supplies but it was dirty and messy. We did not use any of those food items. The shower didn't seem squeaky clean either. We each were given 1 bath towel but would have liked to have wash cloths. It was nice to have access to laundry room. Overall we did enjoy this place. It just needs a little more cleaning for me to rate it a 4.
