The apartment is clean and beautifully furnished and wants for nothing. Everything had been thought of to make the stay as comfortable as possible, including bath robes and slippers, beach towels, shopping bags, picnic blanket, condiments - the list goes on and on. The welcome hamper was a real treat including Pimms and beer in the fridge. The garden is also a delight with the area directly outside the back door a real sun trap and it is peaceful. It was wonderful to look out on sea views every day. Having a garage was a real plus. The apartment is situated about 10 minutes (slow walking) from the sea front where there are a number of restaurants. Bistro Pierre's lunchtime fixed price menu is highly recommended. There are some lovely craft shops and galleries within walking distance as well as a Co-op and Tesco's. There are many bays along the coast which are worth a visit. It was a delight to meet Kath and Mike - they were at the end of the phone if needed. All in all an absolute cracker of an apartment. Will be recommending to family and friends without hesitation. We are looking forward to booking a holiday in Kath and Mike's Cyprus villa in the not too distant future. We don't normally return to the same holiday accommodation, but would definitely consider returning to Little Sea Sparkle. Helen and Brian B

We got out and about most days as there is some stunning places to visit nearby such as Penberry with its stunning beach. We would highly recommend the Chapel to anyone and will definitely be back next year.
