  • "Excellent property as described, great location."

    Parking instruction a little difficult to follow. Used to visit daughter in the University and represented excellent alternative to hotel. Walk to Langland is worth trying. Good shops including an M & S. Croeso Lounge very accommodating and good value - dog friendly also. Coffee at No 26 also worth a visit. Will definitely hope to return later in year.

  • "The house is very comfortable and well equipped."

    It’s very conveniently located in the heart of Mumbles. I don’t actually think that the photographs fully do it justice. Mumbles has improved since we were last there and seems to be developing into a very nice small resort. A minor negative – the there two decent bathrooms, but you should be aware that they are not ensuite.

    We're delighted to hear that you found our house comfortable and well-equipped during your stay. Your positive feedback on the convenience of our location in the heart of Mumbles is greatly appreciated, and we're thrilled to hear that the house exceeded your expectations beyond what the photographs portrayed.

    The kitchen is particularly well equipped with high quality utensils and good cooking facilities. It is a great location, very close to the sea, every bedroom has a sea view, and a only a minute or so from local shops and restaurants. We had a very lovely week long stay and would be happy to return again.

  • "Fantastic property, very well presented to a high standard."

    Very comfortable, loads of space, all the facilities and support you could need for a real “home from home”….plenty of cutlery and crockery, and just enough personal touches to the decor to give the house some personality. Extremely well located, in easy striking distance of Swansea and also the delights of the Gower generally. Good public transport, we found the buses very reliable, and plenty of walking routes also.

    Thank you so much for your kind words and positive feedback, we are so pleased that you had a lovely stay at the Headlands. We hope to see you again soon! Property Owner

  • "We had a brilliant stay at the Headlands."

    The location is perfect and the house itself very comfortable and well equipped, with good quality bed linen and everything you need in the kitchen to cook properly. Very impressed that there was a blender, cafetiere and even a slow cooker. Good quality (Fairy) dishwasher capsules also provided and washing machine capsules too (although we did take our own Ariel). The house was very warm - I had to turn some radiators off - and there were two thermostats, which was a bit confusing! Swansea council are big on recycling - but the info folder includes details on what to do and when to put the bags out. Plenty of good restaurants, takeaways and pubs in the area and really handy for visits to the Gower. Only downside to the location is that there is a major project going on to preserve the promenade, but there is still room for walking - watch out for the cyclists who can get a bit stroppy if you or your dog accidentally stray into the cycle lane! We will definitely return for another visit when visiting our relatives again - highly recommend! :-)

    We always aim to provide a high quality stay and thank you so much for providing us with a perfect score! We hope to see you again soon! Property Owner

  • "Arrived and house had lovely decorations for Christmas, the heating had been set at 27 degrees so was unbelievably hot , tried to reduce heat but unable to, contacted owner, who informed us they were on holiday themselves."

    They said they would contact plumber, but as we worked out ourselves it was just batteries in the heating display unit, so we replaced ourselves. The main bedroom double bed had a single quilt, which is not comfortable for 2 adults, didn’t contact owner as they had already told us they were on holiday themselves. A single quilt in a double cover is uncomfortable! The chest of draws were falling apart, a little attention to detail. Other than these things, we had a good holiday and Christmas, kitchen well equipped for cooking. Lovely table decoration left for us, thank you. We managed to do all our shopping without moving the car, which was great. I would book again because I’m sure these things would be put right.

    We always aim to deliver a great experience, and we are gutted the parts of your stay was not as expected. Thank you for taking the time to bring this to our attention. We have investigated the items raised over the Christmas period. I am so glad to hear that overall you enjoyed your stay with us, we hope to see you again soon! Property Owner

    If you have more than one car be prepared to walk a bit as parking is limited nearby. Wasn't a problem - but could be a five minute walk away. We loved being by the sea and promenade...lots of bars and restaurants nearby. Recommend Mum Bales for beer!

  • "An amazing location and the property is beautiful."

    We had a fantastic week. The only feedback would be to give a better explanation of the rubbish / bin situation. As it was completely different to our city we were a little lost, this resulted in our rubbish being left by the roadside. (We hadn’t realised we needed the strong bags so only put out the plastic bags) Lovely area and beautiful home.

    Thank you so much for providing a perfect rating, this means the world to us! We have noted your comments and updated our welcome pack to provide further detail on the Bin / rubbish procedure. We hope this will mitigate any confusion for future guests. We hope to see you again soon. Property Owner
