    Huge house that is finished to a very high standard. Highly recommended. Great communication from the host.

  • "The property itself is gorgeous and very conveniently located to access the town centre and sea front."

    Unfortunately, the owners false accusations of damage means that I cannot leave a fully positive review. Fortunately, I have photo and video evidence to prove that the damage was there on our arrival so if you do decide to stay here I strongly suggest taking images of everything immediately on arrival in case you are accused of damage like us. I wouldn’t recommend staying based on the negative communication and lack of professionalism from the owner unfortunately.

  • "We cannot rate this property any higher, it was/is amazing and would highly recommend for any large groups looking for quality accommodation."

    On arrival the standard was immediately obvious, so clean and extremely well maintained. The kitchen was well equipped for the number of guests, with everything thought of. The welcome hamper was beautiful and very much appreciated. The location of the property made it so easy to actually walk down to the front promenade even with children! The group enjoyed the stay so much we will be returning next year!!

    Everything is finished to a high standard and plenty of space for a big group. We stayed as a family and there were 21 of us. The owner Jaime was on hand whenever we needed help and made sure we had the best stay possible. Would highly recommend this house. Just need a few long mirrors and a tv in the smallest room. Thanks again we had an amazing time.

    There is plenty of room for at least 6 cars (small to medium size) and even though it’s down a side street once you’ve driven in you could be anywhere. The house backs on to the railway but you barely hear the trains, obviously a big hint in the name

    . Absolutely amazing house, not to be missed! Just filled this stunning house with 22 of my family and enjoyed a fantastic, unforgettable 4 nights. The photos do not do it justice.. The place is huge! Right in the heart of everything and parking for lots of cars. Every room beautiful and finished to a high standard, with quality carpets, fixtures and fittings throughout. Host has put a lot of effort in and gone above and beyond to make sure you have a brilliant stay with an array of amenities, games, tv’s (everywhere!), table football, hot tub, even 22 chairs fit round one dining room table!! Great value, great fun, great memories! Thanks Jamie for making us so welcome, checking all ok at the start and again upon departure (not to mention the welcome gifts .. the huge picnic basket hamper!! ) Had the best time and already planning our return. Can’t fault it..

    Every room is immaculate and everything has been thought of. Having two large lounges with enough seating was brilliant, when people weren’t happily sitting and chatting in the kitchen. Every bedroom was lovely and super comfy and all the bathrooms were amazing. The hot tub and the table football were enjoyed by everyone. The house just had so much room and perfect for mixed ages. I could put the littlest ones to bed without any worry about them being woken up and everyone else could still enjoy the evening. Jamie was brilliant, all information you need for the house is there and if needed you can message him and get a really quick response. Having parking for everyone is also a big plus!

    The hot tub was fab and the bathrooms are lovely. Our only negative comments would be the lack of large pans and large serving dishes as it was quite difficult to cook for 22 people at times. The dining table only seated 18 too. Thanks for a lovely stay.

    Hi there, I’m really sorry about the pans and dishes etc. I would of happily brought some down if you had informed me during your stay. I have since been and bought more, so hopefully this should no longer be an issue. We have enough seating for 22 but I know it’s a squeeze. It’s the largest set up we could find without splitting the tables and having two separate tables which I’d don’t want to do. I’m glad you enjoyed the house and again my apologies for the little issues you had. Regards Jaime Property Owner
