A Very lovely friendly chap. He gave us information about the area and village. Everything you needed in the apartment for a break. We couldn't fault anything. Situated just over the road from the sea lovely view of the needles Isle of wight and super walk to Hurst Castle.. Nice restaurants and pubs, but also everything you need to cook your own meals if you wished to. We met Linda Robs wife also a lovely friendly lady. We would come back and recommend. Thanks very much
