  • "Stay was made into a mini break as we had a funeral to attend in the area."

    Was good value for what we paid but there are some things which could be easily rectified to make the stay here better. Needs a better clean, cobwebs hanging from second bedroom, lampshade needs a good vacuum, stuff under the single bed (bottle of water) under sofa too was missed items so clearly overlooked (pompom thing which we left near the bin) Tooth flosser down the side of the sofabed - still there for you to dispose of! The towels were supposed to be white but in our opinion needed to be thrown away or used for pet towels. Lots of mark/stains on them all and had to sort through to find the best of a bad lot. Very small too, larger person staying here would have an interesting body dry on such small towels if you are used to a bath sheet for example. Bath plug needs attaching to the chain so that a bath can be taken if desired. Also NO mirror in the bathroom so an interesting wet shave when getting ready for the funeral. In the kitchen we found two chopping boards, one only fit for the bin as disgusting... No bread knife and the knives in the block needed a good sharpen so perhaps a sharpener in the drawer tor people to do this. We normally have a go at cooking a meal or two when we go away but husband didn't even want me to cook him a fried egg sandwich in what was on offer and he's not normally fussy. So some easy things to look at really but definitely cleaned better along with the towels.

    Beds were comfortable and as it was February the flat was warm and cozy. Access to the beach was great for walks with our dog. A lovely welcome of milk in the fridge and biscuits was a lovely touch. Thank you for having us.

  • "Nice flat but probably more suitable for Spring yo Autumn stays, rather than winter - we had some very wet weather and it was difficult to dry our coats off and we had to have the convector heaters on all the time but they did keep the place warm in exceptionally cold weather."

    Beds comfortable, decent bedding and kitchen pretty well equipped but missed cafetiere or any other means of making proper coffee. Unfortunately the oven wasn't working but I guess everything goes wrong eventually so we were unlucky. Definitely need to put a mirror in the otherwise well done, modern bathroom - how do men see to shave? Standard or wall lights in living room would soften it up nicely. Great location with private access to huge long beach, and mini markets, cafés, etc just round the corner.

  • "Let's just start with the negative's: The property itself needs some attention to the curtain rail in one of the bedrooms."

    The key to the beach was hanging up the but keys to open the windows weren't anywhere that we could find them. The sofa needed to be a little cleaner as we found dog hair on it when we arrived. Now for the positive's: It wasy to find. We liked where it was situated. Close to the beach where we took our dog twice a day. Clean apart from the above already mentioned & well equipped. A good cafe with lovely staff just down on the corner & we enjoyed a great Indian meal from 'The Bay of India'.

    The owners made their short stay home as welcoming as they could for their guests. The whole process of booking with Skyes Cottages and the owners was friendly, easy and totally hassle free. All the information and requirements/ conditions were well laid out and openly displayed on the website and the accommodation. I liked the regular communication from Skyes Cottages regarding the holiday, which to me added that personal touch, be it virtually. Will go their again and definitely use Skyes Cottages, a company that is customer focused. A big thank you to the owners for a comfortable stay.

    We had a problem with the TV not working but the land lady was very quick to rectify the problem. My parents struggled with the double mattress, they said it was very uncomfortable. On the positive side, it was a cosy property, nice bathroom and most of all its a perfect location from the beach and all the shops, pubs and fair etc. I would stay there again.

    Thank you for your review. I’m sorry for the issues you had whilst staying at ocean breeze. I recognise the condition of the flat was not acceptable and as soon as I was aware the flat had not been cleaned I spoke to the cleaners who dealt with that. Re the fan in the bathroom as you pointed out it had been mentioned before and I thought it had been resolved. As soon as I got your review I arranged for my electrician to go down 2 days later. He decided to replace the fan along with the bathroom heater. He also looked at the wardrobe and concluded that the tape holding the back panels together had come away which caused the bulging and he used panel pins and more tape to rectify it. He also secured the screws that had come out and caused the bottom shelf to become unbalanced. The blinds in the living room and double bedroom were also replaced and the mould around the window corners was removed. The cleaners have been spoken to for them to keep on top of things and inform me straightaway of any issues. Karen Clarke Property Owner

    The biggest down side was people up and down stairs on and off all night long. It was great that the beach was so close, we would consider the flat in the future

    Many thanks for your feedback. I am so sorry about the kitchen, this has been checked and addressed with the cleaning company. The bathroom heater is one sped but does keep the bathroom warm. Regarding any noise, apologies for this, as it is a building with more than one accommodation, this was regrettably outside our control at the time. We are glad though that you enjoyed the location and look forward to welcoming you again in the future. Property Owner

    Needs a great deal of maintenance. It was not cleaned well and the freezer has not been defrosted in a good while. Curtains and blinds had mould on them, the flat smelled of damp. Position for the beach was excellent.

    Thank you for your comments. We would like to reassure you that the curtains have been cleaned and a blind has been replaced and the property has been checked for any mildew and is being resolved. It's possible if the kitchen fan was not on that this led to an odour and we will ask guests in future to make sure the kitchen ventilation fan is left on. Moving forward we will also check that the windows are opened on changeover to air the property through in the event that previous guests have had them closed for a week.The freezer has also now been defrosted, thank you for letting us know.

    The only issues I had was the letter confirming the booking did not state the unit number. I had to ring up to obtain it on arrival. I also had to to keep using the code outside to obtain the main key to get in and out which was a bit awkward fumbling around in the cold. It would be better to provide a key for the front door that can be retained until the end. One key broke off very easily in the inside door but on reporting it was very quickly replaced. The light fitting in the lounge area tends to dazzle when watching TV or reading. I would recommend a different fitting. Other than that everything was fine and I would recommend this property for a relaxing cosy break.

    With quick access to the beach we walked along the seafront each evening, definitely a highlight of the property, and we appreciated the quietness of the area. The property had all the items you may need, kitchen utensils, pots, pans, washing machine, tv, ironing board, etc and the shower was very good. The living room is nice and spacious and was a nice place to relax after a day of exploring, plus the beds were very comfy and allowed for a good night's sleep. We did notice a smell to the property and there were air fresheners already within each room to try and combat this. There is a parking space directly outside the property - sometimes others had parked in this space and so there was a bit of car bay parking shuffling but all cars were within the correct bays by the end of the day. Overall, we had a nice stay at Ocean Breeze and enjoyed our vacation to Brean.

    Very quiet location and the garden is out the front of the house not the back.Short walk to the beach but would not be suitable access for elderly, people with disabilities or buggies as very steep hill. The quieter end at Breen Down would be easier to access via car. There was a problem with no outer front door key which the owner quickly rectified however the actual door has a key code but the door still opens without it. The property has obviously been refurbished but could do with a broom and some more cooking dishes. No other equipment apart from 2 baking sheets and saucepans. Very clean though. Only other issue was the heating of hot water. Never got enough for a sink full. Not a problem as used kettle and shower was lovely. We had a very enjoyable week in a pleasant appartment.
