Beautiful spacious apartment, beautifully furnished with stunning views

5 of 5
We loved this apartment and the fantastic weather meant we could enjoy breakfast and our evening meal on the large decking area. The quality of the decoration and furnishings were excellent. We received good customer service (we reported a minor maintenance issue and were told 'I can be there in two minutes, we're just around the corner!'). The location is perfect for the beautiful views and coastal walks. The large garden is very well kept. In a word this apartment is 'Perfect' and we will certainly be coming back to stay.

A Very Special Place!

5 of 5
The unique Art Deco style and ambience, together with the wonderful location, make Marine Villa an exceptional property. The spacious rooms, large garden and panoramic sea views afford a wonderful feeling of opulent relaxation. Our visit was for a 70th birthday celebration with all of the family. One of the presents was a personalised monopoly board game with all of the places and streets important in those 70 years. Mayfair was Marine Villa! It certainly deserves that position! Laurence and Sharon, thank you for allowing us to share your home to make such happy memories. Susan B
