Weather was amazing, apartment was very clean throughout and well presented. We used a local equipment hire company for delivery of a cot and high chair which worked really well and Bryan/Paul were very accommodating to help us arrange it. The twin room was perfect for our 3 year old sleeping in a proper bed - she slept really well. We had the cot in the double bed room which had plenty of space even with the three of us. All modern appliances in the kitchen were easy to use and loads of space even with a dining table to seat 6+ people. Family bathroom was perfect for post beach cleaning activities. Plenty of provided towels to go around. Quiet location and only a 5 minute walk down to the beach which was much quieter than the main town beaches nearby. Sitting out on the patio overlooking the beach and watching the paddle boarders of an evening was very relaxing!! We would certainly go back to Beach View and would definitely recommend it to anyone. The photos are great but the apartment is even better when you get there!!
