About the property

Superbly equipped spacious apartment, offering views of dolphins in Cardigan Bay

Our first floor flat overlooks the picturesque Dolau beach opening out onto Cardigan Bay, ideal for watching the dolphins at play! It is the perfect location for a relaxing holiday, with fine, sandy 'blue flag' beaches, a sheltered harbour area, a selection of restaurants, pubs and shops catering for all needs and tastes. The Grade II listed building has been sympathetically adapted from a former warehouse and sail loft dating from the 1850s to provide a high standard of comfort and stylish accommodation.

Accommodation details: The accommodation comprises: 1 master bedroom with king-size bed, 1 bedroom with standard double bed and 1 bedroom with twin singles. There is also a travel cot and high chair available for infants. The master bedroom has an en-suite bathroom, with full size bath and shower. All linen and towels (except beach towels and cot sheets) are provided.There is a separate main bathroom, also with full size bath and shower.

The layout of master bedroom, with an en-suite, and the twin bedroom next door located off one end of the lounge, and the second double bedroom and main bathroom off the opposite end of the lounge has proven very popular with extended families.

The lounge/dining area allows for a full size three-piece suite, TV (with Freeview options), DVD/CD player, books and games, and a dining table and chairs.

Secure wi-fi has been added this year, free to use for our guests.

The separate full size kitchen includes cooker, dishwasher, washing machine, tumble drier, as well as the usual microwave cooker, toaster, coffee maker, and being British, a teapot!

About Mike or Jan Owen

Being a keen dinghy sailor, I have been coming here for decades along with fellow club members from the midlands for our annual 'weekend at the seaside'in the middle of June. My wife is a more recent convert, being a non sailor. Eventually she was persuaded, and in spite of it raining a lot that weekend, she loved it, especially the dolphins and the shops.

Mike or Jan Owen purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Mike or Jan Owen chose New Quay

Discovering that we had the means, we decided to purchase a seaside property. Once you accept that, it had to be on 'the front line', with a view of the bay and the dolphins.

It also had to be clean and comfortable. That ticked the box.

What makes this apartment unique

To be able to sit at the table having breakfast and watch the dolphins playing in the bay, or the dogs on the beach, or occasionally even surfers doing their thing.

Great Location!

  • 4 of 5

The property was in great condition, very comfortable with all of the amenities you could wish for. Its central location was fantastic as it minimized the stress of driving to and fro and parking. We were over from the USA for a wedding in London and wanted a place to meet my family from the Midlands after, for a reunion of sorts.They found B&B 's and other accommodations and we used the "Rendezvous" as a meeting place.It worked out well. We had all the pubs and restaurants close by. We enjoyed the beach, water sports, hiking the trails, and chartered a boat for half a day as the finale. From young to old we all had a marvelous time. I was originally concerned about the parking but that turned out to be unwarranted. The only slight negative was the street noise as the pubs emptied out but that abated pretty quickly. The bay views and dolphin watching more than compensated for that. I would highly recommend for US travelers looking for something original.

Owner's Response: Many thanks for that, a very fair review. Having been to the States ourselves we know there can be significant differences in expectations, but we are delighted that it all worked, you enjoyed yourselves, had a good time, and that the dolphins obliged. We hope you can do it again soon. Best regards from Jan & Mike.

A 'Home from Home'

  • 4 of 5

This well maintained apartment has everything needed for a great holiday.

It was very comfortable and clean, with lovely views of the sea, dolphins and seals. Lots of items were thoughtfully provided for use on the beach, e.g. seating, mats and games. Local facilities e.g. restaurants and shops nearby. Parking, although not on site, is only 50 metres away on a public car park with cheap weekly rate. NT properties to visit, coastal paths to walk and sea trips if wished. Although we visited at the end of the season there was still lots to do and see.

Customer service was very good with the owners very helpful with any information requested. The Fish and Chips at The Rendezvous were delicious and all the local people we met were very friendly.

Cae Newydd :)

  • 5 of 5

this is a great appartment to stay in -- there's everything you need and you can spend many a happy hour sitting by the window watching dolphins swim in the bay. the appartment was spotelssly clean and the customer service from booking through to post-visit correspondence has been excellent.

Cae Newydd is a quaint seaside town and we had a fabulous week here. the boat trip booked from the gift shop (seen from the appartment) was excellent - the guides were knowlwdgeable and friendly. every restaurant we went to had excelent service and the food was delicious. the kayaking trip from the boat yard was great fun too and so was the pub quiz in the pub behind the appartment (the fact we won was a bonus!) we recommend the ice cream parlour too - there are so many flavours to choose from and they are delicious.

if you want a relaxing break in great surroundings in a fabulous appartment then pick Captain's Rendevous and you won't be disappointed.

Highly recommended for a 'chill out' break

  • 5 of 5

My family ( two adults, one 16 and one 17 year old) had a wonderful, restful holiday in this lovely apartment. There was everything we needed - we couldn’t have wished for better. New Quay is a charming seaside resort and the weather was superb too (although we can't guarantee that of course - we were there at the end of May). I simply loved watching the dolphins play before breakfast. It was good as a base for visiting other places in the area too. All in all, an idyllic retreat. We certainly hope we can visit again in the future.

Dolau beach
Car: recommended

Our first floor flat is located on the junction of Wellington Place and Church Street with a direct view of the Bay. If you would rather eat out than use the full kitchen, you will find yourself spoiled for choice. We recommend the Wellington Inn next door if you have a very healthy appetite, the fish bar/restaurant on the ground floor, or The Hungry Trout for the gourmet experience. There is the Bluebell for the Bistro style, and there are Indian, Thai and Chinese meals available nearby as well.

The apartment is just 30M from Dolau Beach, and 150M away are the quayside and harbour with its clean sandy bottom. For the more adventurous, it is an ideal centre for cliff-top walks to the neighbouring bays, or the nearby town of Aberaeron, or learn to sail at the nearby water sports centre.
