  • "Lovely apartment with everything you could want - loved the dressing gowns , welcome pack and doggy treats and equipment ."

    So close to sea we walked down in our costumes to have an October swim and short walk to town centre - highly recommended

  • "Our second time here."

    ...We did have a Problem with the Central Heatiing but the lady came and sorted it out twice....the house is now....my only concern is i wish she would invest with good beds.....as the beds dont really work....ie....uncomfortable...the house is now paved so access is better at the front....

  • "A really pleasant stay the bed was comfortable and the property very clean."

    Although the pub was quite noisy and busy it was good that in the bedrooms there was hardly any noise at all. only very minor points see below. Please could you let the tenants know what to do with the food recycling bin and also the general rubbish bin as we couldn't see where to empty them. Also if you would like the beds stripped. There was no need for the heating to be on but we couldn't work out how to put the heated towel rail on so I think that would be helpful too.

  • "Had a really lovely week in Porthcawl with the dog."

    2 minutes (no exaggeration) from beach. You can see surfers and swimmers in the sea when you have breakfast! You can walk to the promenade and shops in about 5-10 minutes. Neighbours friendly and helpful. Pub with food just around corner and you can take the dog. Flat super clean and the owner has supplied everything you could possibly need. Lovely welcome pack too. Thoroughly recommend and definitely want to go back again.

    Thank you Jennifer Property Owner

  • "This is the second time we have stayed here."

    The location is excellent, right next to the beach. Nice and cozy, They accommodated our second dog with no problem. All rooms are a great size, even the bathroom. The shower is great with hot water every time. Katrina left bacon, bread, butter, milk, dog treats, malt loaf and sachets of hot chocolate. Very handy. Will definitely stay again. Katrina sorted out a problem straight away when we told her about it. She was very helpful.

    Thank you Tina, so glad you enjoyed your stay at 76a. Hopefully see you again soon :-) Property Owner

  • "We had a lovely time when we returned to Mackworth Road for the second time."

    It is ideal for just getting away from it all after spending the day with family who live in the area. It provides the best of both worlds being on the coast and being able to just enjoy the scenery and also being within driving distance of being able to go shopping at the outlet in Bridgend or in Cardiff. It has everything you need for you stay. The sitting area outside the front is lovely as you are able to sit and just watch the waves coming in and out. Will definitely be booking again in the future, as we all enjoyed our stay especially Rosie the dog.

    So glad you had a lovely stay ❤️ Property Owner

  • "A great location and we would definitely book again."

    Some noise from the fairground at the weekend but with doors and windows closed this was minimal and worth it to be so close to the beech and facilities. Katrina was a great host and a very small issue was rectified by her very quickly. The apartment was spacious. The dining area and terrace have a lovely sea view. If we stayed again we would take a couple of good quality pillows with us as those provided are quite flat. The mattresses are very firm and we would have welcomed a mattress topper for additional comfort. WiFi speed was excellent. The smart TV was great. Over all we had a lovely stay.

    New pillows, mattress and topper have been changed Property Owner

    We had a lovely stay at Mackworth Road. There was a lovely welcome pack for us. The only complaint we had was the rubber bath mat was mouldy. Some of the utensils hadn't been washed up properly. The accommodation was well equipped and very comfortable. We would highly recommend it

  • "Lovely place to come and stay, the owner left us with some Welsh cakes, milk, bacon, butter, bread and even a bottle of wine which was a lovely touch."

    Clean and tidy with all the amenities. Spacious bathroom and 2 lovely bedrooms, with one leading out to the back patio.. My only gripe was the parking, there isn't a space for parking outside the property and we had to park around the back on the main carpark... If the man isn't in his hut then it's free but if he is there then it's £3 all day.. Right next to beach and pub, arcade etc. You can hear the music but it does die down about 9pm. Overall a very nice stay...

  • "We had a lovely stay here, beautiful and perfect location."

    Two teenagers, one adult and dog! One of the most relaxing holidays I’ve had, lovely dog friendly beach 15 min walk away but also a very large field two mins walk from the property. House had everything we needed and the courtyard garden has sun all day, or you can sit on the front porch and watch the world go by. The kids loved the fairground and very reasonable prices to what we are used to paying. We had no issues with parking but there are also two cheap car parks next to the property. Beach is beautiful and we had glorious weather so saw some lovely sunsets. I am hoping to book for us again next year. The owner was easily contactable should we have needed anything. It’s a big thumbs up from our family.

  • "Great property which is very clean and has all facilities that you would require."

    Very comfortable to stay in. Stayed here last year also and the owners seem to have a keen interest to keep on improving the property for their guests. Fantastic location near to the beach, a fair, amusements, places to eat and within walking distance to the town of Porthcawl. Slight issues with parking during busy periods but this can easily be resolved once you get to know your way around. Highly recommended ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

  • "Great property, excellent facilities and very clean and everything in working order."

    Extremely comfortable place to stay. We also had a great host for the week, Katrina always in easy reach if needed. A few things could be improved such as direct access to the property could be improved along with a temporary parking permit issued for you during your stay to ensure parking availability at busier times. But overall excellent host, facilities, cleanliness and location is perfect.

    Unfortunately parking is for residential owners only. Thank you for your feedback Property Owner

  • "Very clean, well presented with simple but appropriate furnishings for a comfortable stay."

    A helpful owner who responded rapidly with any queries. Very close indeed to the sea. Fairground opposite and pub next door produced some daytime noise but the house was actually quite well insulated from this and the fair closed at 9pm promptly after which the apartment was surprisingly peaceful actually. Small suntrap courtyard with furniture and washing line at the back of the property was pleasant. Nice friendly neighbours. Beds not to our comfort unfortunately but these are personal preferences. Well equipped in general. Needed a cheese grater and a couple of sharper cooking knives in stock but these are small points. The listing needs to clarify that there is no parking for the property other than street parking. Also it would be helpful to have information regarding rubbish and recycling systems as we had to ask about this.

    Cheese grater and sharper knives now in place. Thanknyou for your feedback much appreciated Property Owner

  • "On the 4th day of our 7 days there, the toilet became blocked."

    We contacted the owner who told us that this was a known issue and that it should have been fixed the week before. We were very upset because she didn't tell us before hand. We struggled for 2 days because we have young kids. I had to wait for plumbers who couldn't fix it until the end of those 2 days. Waiting for a plumber was not something I expected to be doing on my holiday. This was very inconvenient and wasted 2 days of my well needed holiday. The cottage owner was not understanding and she didn't offer anything as a compensation, not even an apology. This will make us think twice before booking a cottage again.

    Thank you for your feedback. The owner has informed us that the issue was reported 7pm in the evening a plumber did go out at 11pm that night, it was fully resolved by 11am the next morning and even offered to wait for the plumber and the offer was declined. Property Owner
