The house was perfect for all 3 of our families and we loved the open space layout. Plenty of room and very comfortable and clean with all the usual facilities and amenities. Right on the beach front and just a short walk from Ouestreham itself. Plenty of lovely English spoken restaurants and bars and only about 5 minutes away from 2 supermarkets. In close distance to all the historic places which are a must to visit. We will definitely be returning to this house.

As we arrived on the overnight ferry and wanted to get straight into the property we booked an additional night and arranged with the owner to get straight in on arrival, as the cost was reasonable this made sense to us. The property was fine for us as a couple but wouldn't want to have 4 adults in it for more than a couple of nights as it is small however plenty of hot water and enough stuff there. Good size fridge / freezer. Off street parking and quiet. The stairs to the two comfortable single beds is not so easy to climb up or down but then we aren't spring chicks any more! Good location to start exploring Sword beach area with a supermarket not too far away. Visited end September 2016

It was very comfortable and well furnished and equipped. The position was very nice with distant sea views. You have a short walk to shops and restaurants which isn't a problem in good weather. Garage was a bonus.
