                                                              A perfect cozy property

                                                              We had the perfect stay in Swansea, mostly because of this cozy and clean property that we stayed in. There were three of us staying but it would have been perfect for four people too. We felt like home as soon as we walked in. The owner got us wine and chocolate to welcome us. The apartment was perfect for us, the neighbors were quiet and the view to the beach was amazing. Everything was really close to us (shops, nightlife etc). Two bedrooms and two bathrooms were very needed, especially we enjoyed the bathroom attached to the bigger bedroom, it was very needed. We found everything we needed in the kitchen too. I truly reccomed this property! Everything went so well, thank you!

                                                              An immaculate and very attractive property

                                                              Sharon was a very welcoming host and was very helpful when we arrived. The house was immaculate and well-equipped, and very comfortable if a little warm upstairs with all we needed to make our stay a pleasure, including a very nice bottle of wine. There is plenty to do in the neighbourhood whatever the weather as we found out even though we were only there for 3 days. The scenery at the house and around the Gower is delightful and the cows in the field next door made the holiday very special for our small granddaughter. Caswell Bay was beautiful on the Sunday (the best day weatherwise of the stay) and we had a very nice roast lunch at a pub in Bishopston. The café/stores at the top of the road was well-stocked and sold delicious ice cream, especially the 'cowmix'!! The Gower is a beautiful part of the world and we shall be very happy to visit again.

                                                              This property is everything everyone says it is. Very comfortable. Everything you need is catered for. We've been home 6 weeks now and still really miss the view from 5a. We will definitely be back!
