Great location and tidy apartment with well equipped kitchen. The view over the harbour always gave us a calming start to the day. House very tidy and clean. Comfy beds. Stay here!.

The property has a real wow factor with amazing views. It makes a great base to explore both the coast and Snowdonia, with lovely coast walks from the door. The layout of the house is ideal for different age groups to get together and is very well equipped. It makes for a very peaceful and relaxing holiday. We would recommend a stay there.
