The floor to ceiling windows in both the living area and the main bedroom give excellent views over the beach. The property manager; Sandra was very welcoming on our 1st day - explained everything really well and was very helpful. The apt is just as described, close to all amenities, perfect for strolls on the beach and rock pooling. A stroll in front of the beach huts is perfectly finished with a pub at the end for a quick drink all over looking the sea. Westward Ho and Horizon View are a lovely place to stay would have no hesititation in recommending the place or the apt to anyone. Thanks very much

The house is spacious, and homely and has everything you need. The kitchen is fully equipped, the sofas comfortable, big dining table, garden and BBQ. The balcony offers a wonderful view. Fantastic also to have a safety box to put the key in when you go out. The welcome pack was useful and we booked restaurants weeks before we went to ensure we got in from the recommendations in the pack. Would definitely return.
