  • "It could definitely benefit from a proper clean, it's okay on face value but certainly isn't properly clean - mould around the window frames, cobwebs everywhere etc."

    It's a nice house and good if you just want to use it as a base but you wouldn't want to sit on the sofas for long as they're not very comfortable. New mattresses are desperately needed, the one in the main room is very hard but one of the mattresses in the twin room is so bad you can feel every spring just by running your hand over it.

  • "Lovely dog friendly property."

    Pleasantly pleasing deco very clean and added conservatory a bonus. Still plenty of outdoor space. Recommended.

    .needs replacing. 10 minute walk to the seafront yes! 1 hour to walk back up the steep hill not mentioned. This walk is not attempted by the locals, they catch the bus back.

    The house was well equipped, inside and out.

  • "The house was spotlessly clean and the housekeeper lives 2 doors away, which would have made any issues easy to resolve had we had them."

    We were greeted with milk and toilet rolls, which was thoughtful. We made contact with the owner as the heating didn’t seem to be coming on and it was resolved in a matter of minutes by a quick simple text message. Very happy with the welcome and the response. Lovely and warm thereafter in the cool weather. Felt like the carpets had just been replaced, which was also nice under foot.. Third bedroom was quite small, with bunks, so only really suitable for young children but the outside space much bigger than it looks on the photographs - just note that there are a few steps to the property from the reserved parking space, in case of mobility issues.

  • "Location was great, twice someone parked in our space which was allocated to our house."

    Washing machine seem to be broken, was told it still works but you have to slam the door, still it was broken and not working at all, so that was a disappointment. The conservatory had cobwebs all over and very dirty, under the furniture. Back garden was covered in weeds. Bathroom upstairs no heating, so mould was starting to appear on the wall. Saw someone walking around the back of the house at night and left the back gate open. Overall the rest of the house was ok.

  • "This house on arrival was extremely dirty, and needed sanitising, which amid Covid-19 is very disappointing!"

    We were given many rules to follow because of this situation and I feel it’s very wrong to not keep the families who are staying in the houses safe too! My cloths came up absolutely black! The garden is very dilapidated and furniture was filthy. Pictures on website are old. The hot water is absolutely scalding, so be very careful with young children.

  • "Driftwood House is a lovely place to stay located in a quite cul-de-sac and a short walk down to the harbour."

    Ideally located for some great coastal walks or traveling further a field to explore south Wales. Val the house keeper lives nearby and is very friendly and helpful.

    Spacious open plan living with plenty of seating and good sized kitchen area. The property was spotlessly clean. The welcome pack of tea, coffee, milk and Welsh cakes very much appreciated after our journey. Excellent outside amenities and with a secure garden ideal for our little dog. This is a property I would recommend to anyone.

    They tastefully decorated the house and also left a lovely welcoming hamper for us. The property was exceptionally clean and tidy and very well equipped. They stressed to us that we should ring them at any time if there were any problems. There were none. A beautiful house in a quiet but convenient location. The few neighbours we met were very friendly. A wonderful place to stay.

  • "The main thing we liked about the property is that it was extremely clean, Val who looks after the house does a very good job."

    She is also very helpful. The garden is enclosed so suitable for a dog although it could do with tidying. The lock on the rear door on the conservatory is extremely stiff I couldn't open it and had to get my husband to open it every time. There was also no instructions for the appliances and as they are all different it was a bit hit or miss we never did manage to get the tv downstairs working! The walk down to Saundersfoot is via a very steep hill. There are some lovely beaches and National Trust properties a short car drive away.

    If it was for a family, they would struggle with just one loo. Could consider putting an extra loo in the hall way. Other than that - the place was great - clean and well set up with everything you would need. Garden nice and good for dogs and children, Felt very homely - would recommend.

  • "I was misled in the booking process."

    I think the details will be logged. We did manage to sort it out with some compromise but it was inconvenient I have been on many good quality self catering holidays and so my comments are an informed comparison with other cottages and companies I have stayed with.The house itself was clean and warm. It was functional but didn't have any of the extras I would expect for the price we paid. Calling the house a cottage is misleading because the house is in a modern cul de sac of standard properties.My main complaint was the size of the third bedroom, about 6 by 5 foot with a bunk bed that took all the space. As the 5th single adult I had to sleep on the top bunk because my adult children were in couples and couldn't be expected to use that room. This needs to be made much clearer on the details and reflected in the price.Lots of small things; No bin liners, washing up liquid, dishwasher tablets.Unclear rubbish disposal instructions. No details about local supermarket. Details all 2015. Home owner contacted me directly with a list of "rules" about 2 weeks before our visit. Some were irrelevant, like dog instructions. Also instructed us to strip the beds which I decided was unreasonable given the amount we were paying. The location was good although I was disappointed we didn't have sea view. I asked for a sea view on the Sykes cottage selection page The house is a 20 minute walk down/up hill into town which needs to be made clear. We did have a good holiday and I would return to Saundersfoot and Tenby. I would not go back to the house since I dont believe it was value for money.

  • "The house was great, quiet, comfortable with great facilities."

    Even the sharp kitchen knives were very sharp, something not often found in rental properties. Whilst the house is only .6 mile from the centre of Saundersfoot, it's a very steep hill to walk down and back up, so it meant that we used the car more often than we normally would like to. The house was very pet friendly with a good fenced garden for the dog to roam. The nearby presence of Val, the housekeeper was good and she was very helpful with local knowledge etc. All in all, a very enjoyable stay in a beautiful house.

    Also that we could walk from the door to the coastal path and found lovely walks in both directions. The beaches were spotlessly clean as was the whole area in general. We loved the house, it was the perfect place to stay and we would not hesitate in booking again.

This beautifully presented holiday cottage is perfect for your family holiday by the sea.

Alternatively, take a boat trip to see the seal colony on Caldey Island, off Tenby, and the bird sanctuary on St Margaret's, or just a lovely coastal cruise.

A complete holiday in the village will be a delight, but the brilliant selection of nearby attractions should not be missed.
