The owner was very easy to contact. We loved our short stay.Not having access to internet and mobile reception didn't bother us all. Surrounding was really nice. Would love to recommend this place to a family with or without kids.

The apartment is beautifully furnished, spotlessly clean and has absolutely everything you could need. The views across the estuary were amazing and the location great for exploring South Wales. If we return to the area we wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. Thank You Paul and Alison!

Karen was very helpful right from our first enquiry through to greeting us on our arrival. What was especially welcome was the generous way the apartment was supplied with things often lacking in a holiday let e.g. ample loo roll and dishwasher cubes and more! It was a lovely place to unwind, catch some beautiful sunsets and catch up on a lot of films we'd missed!
