                                                                                                      I met with Anthonys son, James , On arrival and Anthony on departure both of whom are friendly and welcoming. The apartment itself is very well appointed and includes a Washer/dryer which is handy for packing light and all the cooking utensils and pans you could need. The kitchen includes an Oven/Grill and larger oven and a good sized Fridge freezer. The property includes wifi which is perfectly adequate for streaming services such as iPlayer and Netflix and opening the balcony doors allows a nice breeze in!. The location is great with the beach, observatory and marina park right on the door step and the Marina and town centre within 10 minutes walking distance. There is a small local supermarket (Co-op) within a few minutes walk of the flat with a larger Sainsburies store just on the other side of the marina (Easily within walking distance) and a large Tesco on the main road if driving. I stayed here for a business trip but can see it working very well for a family visit, especially if you are wanting to cycle down the prom to Mumbles beach you can avoid roads entirely!. I will certainly be returning the next time I head down to Swansea for work.

The only two small complaints we had was that the showers weren't very powerful although clean and warm. Also the sofa bed downstairs was very uncomfortable. The mattress is very thin. Other than this a beautiful place we will return and recommend.
