We loved the TV, and the WiFi was excellent and allowed me to do a bit of work now and again when I needed to. It also allowed us to use a Samsung tablet, so that my 15 year old could watch her programmes in peace, away from her annoying siblings! We opened up one of the jigsaws, and the whole family joined in, except for the baby who would have swallowed a piece and we would have never finished it!The baby cot and high chair was absolutely perfect also by the way. She loved that high chair and she slept fairly well at night, which is more than she does at home! We enjoyed the location also. Close to supermarkets and coffee shops, castles and beaches. The whole experience was truely relaxing!

Very spacious with everything that you would need for a self-catering holiday. The owners were extremely helpful and very knowledgeable about the surrounding area. I would certainly recommend this property to family and friends who are looking for excellent accommodation in a beautiful and peaceful part of the Lleyn. Lots of walking locally both coastal and inland. Excellent food at the Ship Inn at Edern.

We enjoyed our stay at this apartment and made our holiday in North Wales very enjoyable. It has a great location on the seafront and a great base to explore other coastal towns. The leisure centre is behind the apartment and handy on wet days. Kids loved the water slide! The apartment is very modern and tastefully decorated. The boys enjoyed their own en-suite! Osian met us at the apartment and was there when we left - great service! No problems in recommending this apartment to anyone thinking of making a booking.
