  • "Fabulous accommodation with modern furnishings throughout."

    Was spotless on arrival. Welcome basket on arrival (Tea, coffee, Biscuits etc) was much appreciated. Plenty to do in the area to keep two 9 year olds busy for a week !! Definitely well worth the six hour + drive from Preston. Would definitely recommend to family and friends and hope to return in the near future. Sidat family Preston

  • "Everything was perfect."

    The apartment was modern, tastefully furnished, spotless and fully equipped. The view from the apartment on the seafront was amazing, even seeing some dolphins, and only 10 mins walk from beautiful clean, sandy beaches. We would absolutely recommend.
