“A perfect little gem, good value”
Reviewed 18 February 2013 for a stay in February 2013

To escape our cold winters, we had visited here once for a two-week stay and once for three weeks. The experience was so good that when we retired we decided to try it for six weeks. We enjoyed that so much that we are now on our fifth six-week stay. Every year we look forward to coming back. We hope to be able to continue coming here.

The owners of this property go out of their way to make your stay comfortable.

The studios are located in a private garden. They are a short walk from the beach. Bus stop, grocery stores, a large department store and even a train station are only a few minutes' walk away.

“Oh dear”
Reviewed 30 September 2012 for a stay in September 2012

Despite the adverts we had no 'patio' unless you wish to call the path connecting the square block of four studio apartments as a patio. As it runs between the apartment and a 6' wall we had no natural light there. Importantly, the studio access is down some steep steps. The 'fitted wardrobes' are a gross exaggeration of what anyone would expect to find; yes, they were built into the wall but were crude and roughly handmade. We had no gas hob or toaster or pots and pans until I complained; Les the owner then supplied them after I reminded him that these were all included in the advertisment; I dont want confrontation when I am on holiday and this was very upsetting for us. At the same time he also replaced the chipped and cracked cups. There was no clothes maiden, although Les said he had a new one upstairs (its not much use there is it!) as there was nowhere to dry our towels. The shower ether boiled you or the gas switched off and you froze; all in all very unsatisfactory indeed. Les did respond to my complaints but I dont wish to have to complain to get what was advertised. Les seems like a decent bloke but I could do without the aggravation when I just want a holiday. I couldnt possibly recommend this to anyone.

THERE IS A TABLE AND CHAIRS OUTSIDE STUDIO 3 FOR GUESTS USE IDEAL IF NOT RAINING ( RAINING 3 DAYS ) OR MOVE TO END OF PROPERTY WERE THE SUN SHINES ALL DAY.
MY ADVERT SAYS PROPERTY NOT SUITABLE FOR PEOPLE WITH WHEELCHAIR'S OR WITH WALKING DIFFICULTIES I HAVE NOT HAD A COMPLAINT IN 13 YEARS REGARDING THE STAIRS TO OUR GARDEN AREA.
IN MY OPINION THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH OUR WARDROBES THAT WERE BUILT WITH THE PROPERTY CERTAINLY BETTER THAN DIY FLAT PACKS.
CLOTH MAIDEN HAD GONE RUSTY SO WAS THROWN AWAY GUEST MENTIONED THERE WAS NOTHING TO DRY TOWELS ON SO I FETCHING NEW ONE DOWN FROM UPSTAIRS.
TOLD NO TOASTER IN KITCHEN IN 5 MINUTES TOASTER IN KITCHEN.
I HAD TOOK OLD GAS HOB OUT OF STUDIO 3 AND REPLACED IT WITH AN ELECTRIC PLANCHA ( HOT PLATE ) GUESTS COMPLAINED THEY COULD NOT BOIL AN EGG ON IT FOR BREAKFAST SO I WENT OUT AND BOUGHT A NEW GAS HOB AND POTS AND PANS AND IT WAS FITTED THE NEXT DAY.
I DID HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THE WATER, I HAD TO REPLACE A RUBBER LUNG IN THE PRESSURIZED WATER TANK AND SOME SMALL PARTICLES GOT INTO THE WATER PIPE GOING INTO THE HEATER THAT FEEDS THE KITCHEN AND BATHROOM ONCE I HAD CLEARED THE FILTER EVERYTHING WAS WORKING FINE.
I DO HAVE QUITE A NUMBER OF GUESTS THAT STAY AT OUR PROPERTY YEAR ON YEAR SO I TRY AT ALL TIMES TO MAKE MY GUEST WELCOME AND COMFORTABLE AND TRY MY BEST TO SEE THAT THEY ENJOY THERE HOLIDAYS. ( I GUESS ON THE ODD OCCASION I GET IT WRONG )
