  • "A wonderful flat, very close to the sea."

    The new arrangement at the front of the building is great. Quite noisy at the weekend because of the fair, but this is only to be expected.

  • "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 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    Thank you Sean, glad you enjoyed your holiday, shame about the weather. Property Owner

  • "This is a brilliant flat."

    It’s so close to the beach. It’s a clean, spacious and well furnished flat. Shops etc are only a 5-10 minute walk away. The owner is incredibly helpful. Would thoroughly recommend this flat and this area. We had a brilliant holiday here and will definitely be back.

    Thank you Property Owner

  • "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
