We stayed here for just over 4 weeks while our own house was being renovated. Right from the first email Nick was very accommodating, we looked high and low to find owners willing to let to a family of six with 2 dogs, so thank you Nick!!
The property is big (big enough to house 6 people and 2 dogs comfortably for 4 weeks). All three bedrooms are of a decent size, with the two double rooms very big. Lounge area was comfortable and the kitchen more than adequate for our needs, really enjoyed the range cooker...don't have one at home so it was nice to be able to cook everything at once.
The flat was spotless when we got there so kudos to the cleaner.
The only down side for us was the parking, having two cars at the property was a pain as it meant one had to be left on the street where there is parking restrictions being so close to the train station. But cannot be critical too much as for most holiday lets only 1 car would be used for which there is a drive.
All in all this was a little piece of comfortable tranquility away from the carnage of our house renovation that easily accommodated all of us with no hassle. Thanks again!
A great place to stay, close to seafront and all ammemities. Eat out at Pizza/pasta Pia, the best italian ever!!!
We spent one and a half weeks in this appartement. Kitchen and bathroom are on a high standard and two of the three beds at o.k. to sleep in. The matress of the third was bad. We didn't need it because we were just four of us - two adults and two little children. The place is quiet and close to the railway. The style of the appartement is "vintage" - but at a very low level. Most of the furniture is better to be called rummage. And there starts the bad part of the story. Our 1,5 year old daughter had peeled off some of the extremely flawed faux leather cover from one of the armchairs in the lounge. The armchairs had been already in a very poor condition. We did inform the owner directly and send him a picture, offering compensation, though we knew that these armchairs had to be replaced anyway. He wrote back we shouldn't worry. - But we actually should have, because after our stay we were informed that the owner claimed the deposit. After a couple of messages from us he finally sent us a long list of what we had allegedly damaged (he pretended the armchair had been of genuine leather though it wasn't) He claimed 150£ though the actual damage was a vinyl tablecloth which our daughter had drew on with a pen and the armrest of the shabby faux leather armchair. All the rest was later withdrawn by himself when we challenged his allegations. Nevertheless we paid almost 80 £ to solve the issue in the end. I regret not having taken pictures of everything in the beginning of our stay. But worse than the loss of money is the loss if trust and the hassle after having good time with your family.
