The listing was accurate, with no surprises, and provided everything that we needed. Arrival was smooth and hassle-free, and the venue was ideally located for the beach and local amenities. The owner was extremely friendly and helpful, and we would have no hesitation in recommending this apartment to other visitors to St Annes.

The kitchen is well stocked if you wish to self-cater.We went with our granddaughter who is 8 and she loved it. We enjoyed the freedom this property gave us to enjoy Blackpool our way. The property is in an ideal area, especially for The Sandcastle, Pleasure Beach, Hot Ice Show & much more. Would stay here again in a heart beat. Thank you Victoria for a wonderful experience!
