  • "We had a lovely stay at the cottage which is in a great location."

    It is a very well equipped cottage and good base for exploring the area. We found the cottage in general was good but in the adjoining bedrooms it smelled very damp and black mold was evident on the ceiling. In the double bedroom there was black mold on the back of the curtains also. Although we appreciate it’s a stone building and we did make use of the provided dehumidifiers while we were there, they were not actually switched on when we arrived.

  • "Cottage was lovely but unfortunately the mattresses in all bedrooms were not suitable for adults as they lacked support and the older members found them uncomfortable."

    Also it’s very off putting to stay in a cottages fulls of signs tell us what we couldn’t do, some even commented about the cost that would be incurred should we need a plumber. We understand the need for the owners to covers themselves should theses things occur but this could be put into the information pact and not stuck to walls in rooms. Having stayed in numerous holiday homes we have never come across this before.

    Firstly thank you for your comment regarding our lovely cottage, we have not had any complaints previously regarding mattress support.The mattresses were all of a firm classification when purchased. Regards to the excessive signage, the only room to have notifications in is the bathroom as stated it is a polite yet firm request regarding what is put down the toilet. An initial Simple request was ignored and we felt the need to reinforce the notification, since then we have had no issues. Kindest regards Michael and Lara Property Owner

  • "Cottage is spacious, has excellent facilities in great location."

    We had children aged 5 to 15 and they were all catered for activity wise, even fishing nets included. We had a lovely time. The only downside was the one bathroom for a cottage sleeping 8 but to be expected in a cottage of this age and surprisingly due to the cottage being so well equipped we struggled to find room for the shopping, small niggles that didn't stop us having a fanatastic time

    Thank you very for your kind comments, we are glad you enjoyed your stay and hope to welcome you back in the future Kindest regards Mike & Lara Property Owner

  • "Perfect location to the beach and town - second stay at the property which works well for our large family group."

    The only feedback would be to purchase some a new garden table and chairs as some were broken and some people had attempted to fix and tape up but weren't suitable for sitting on Other than this a great stay thanks again!

    Many thanks for your kind comments, apologies for the chairs but I checked them a few weeks ago and somebody had managed to break a piece of the table but the chairs were ok. I am afraid someone must have broken the chairs and not informed us. I will be visiting this weekend and will check. I am pleased you informed us if we don’t know we can’t fix it Kindest regards Mike & Lara. Property Owner

  • "Property was extremely well equipped in a great location."

    However the cleanliness was not as good as I would have expected in that the floor was dirty. Our grandsons within minutes of arriving and running round the corridors had ‘black’ soles of their feet. I have no doubt the floors had been vacuumed but they certainly had not been mopped as I would expect tile and laminated floors to be. There was evidence of dog hair in the property and a smell of dog wee.The mattress in the double bedroom with the twin bedded room off it was in poor condition and needs upgrading. The air fresheners, and there are many, were overpowering. The property would benefit from the addition of a second bathroom or en-suite facility when catering for a maximum of eight visitors. Overall the property was good and we would return.

    Thank you for your constructive feed back and we will pass on your comments to our cleaners. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay overall and look forward to welcoming you back kind regards Mike and Lara Property Owner

    The cottage is really lovely - exceptionally clean and comfortable. It is very well equipped and in a perfect location close to local amenities. We loved the marine/seaside vibe and decor. Saundersfoot is a perfect base and wonderful in itself but was also excellent for exploring nearby places. Highly recommended. Sandra and David and Martha the dog.

  • "A fabulous stay at Captiva Cottage."

    A wonderful house in a wonderful location - a stones throw from everything that Saundersfoot has to offer. The house was spacious and comfortable (some of the beds were definitely more comfortable than others but as a family of 4 we didn't need to use them all); well equipped and a great range of technology (tvs, xbox etc). We had a slight plumbing issue during our stay which was swiftly and apologetically dealt with. We wouldn't hesitate to return, such a treat to find a dog friendly property in such a fantastic spot.

    The cottage itself was very clean and well kept, had all the facilities we needed (although took some working out how to use, but owners were more than helpful to assist us). Would definitely look at staying here again for any future visits to the area.

    Restaurants, bars and beaches are a very short stroll for the cottage. The cottage is spacious and easily sleeps 8 people - worth noting, the twin bedroom is accessed through a double bedroom and may be more suited to children. Although no issues for the 4 of us, only having 1 WC / shower could prove inconvenient to larger groups. The Stone Crab restaurant in the harbour is highly recommended

  • "We had a lovely stay in Captiva Cottage."

    It's close enough to the centre to make it very convenient, but far enough away to be a quiet place to stay. The cottage is finished to a high standard and well kept. The twin bedroom at the back is fairly small, and the "wardrobe" is taken up with high-chairs, so whoever is in there will need to hang clothes elsewhere. One bathroom for 8 people can be a little trying, but we managed ok :-) Great wifi and a good selection of DVD's and games to use. Plenty of bin-bags and dishwasher tablets as well. Thanks for a great stay :-)

  • "Beautiful cottage in a perfect location, close to the beach, harbour and amenities!"

    ! Congratulations to Michael and Lara for the love and thought that's gone into the design and facilities of their special cottage... we loved the theme and the decor, as it reminded us of our own honeymoon on Captiva Island, many years ago...we felt at home there and it provided a perfect little haven of peace and tranquility for a few days away to unwind, relax and regenerate. My only suggestion would be for more worktop space in the kitchen, because for people like us, who like to prepare meals and eat in, there aren't adequate food preparation areas. We hope to return to Captiva Cottage again.

The property

A light and airy cottage, with a real feel of the seaside both inside and out with it being just a few minutes’ walk from the pretty harbour, seaside shops and the sandy beach that makes up the fabulous seaside resort of Saundersfoot.

A perfect base for friends and family looking to make the most of the beachside holiday yet having coastal walks from the door and remain a short drive from fabulous days out and a variety of theme parks.

Set over the ground floor, there are four comfy bedrooms and a family shower room.

There is a stylish and bright, well-equipped kitchen, with everything you need to make the most of the relaxing dining area.

A separate sitting area, gives you somewhere to relax of an evening and reminisce about the day’s adventures.

Outside, you can sit in the elevated terraced patio, a deceptively secluded garden area, perfect for a barbecue as the sun sets, with far-reaching sea views over the roof tops of this quaint little village.

Saundersfoot is a fabulous seaside village, with an increasing reputation as a gourmet resort, a selection of eateries using fantastic local produce.

There is the lovely sandy beach to enjoy, a quaint harbour and the coastal path stretches in both directions opening up fabulous walks from the door.

Being in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, you are ideally placed to explore the wonderful coastline with myriad sandy beaches and coves in both directions, such as Amroth and Wisemans Bridge, whilst within walking distance, they are less than a 10 minute drive.

Why not take a trip to the pretty harbour side town of Tenby, with its multi-coloured houses dipping down to the sea and its popular beaches and watersports or perhaps a trip to the seven mile stretch of Pendine Sands, or visit the iconic boathouse, home of the famous Welsh writer Dylan Thomas?

The area offers numerous outdoor activities such as wildlife spotting boat trips, coasteering and an array of watersports, local horseriding or perhaps grab a round of golf.

For those that want a wider variety of days out, why not visit one of the popular attractions such as the Blue Lagoon, an all-weather water park, Folly Farm, Manor House Wildlife Park, Heatherton World of Activities or Oakwood Theme Park, all between 5 and 10 miles away.

With so much to do you may not want to travel too far, however, for those looking to explore, the National Park wraps around the coastline of Pembrokeshire.

With fabulous opportunities to travel to a variety of islands such as Skomer, the seasonal home of the puffins.

The coast and inland countryside is peppered with fabulous walks and diverse countryside, with the nearby Preselli Hills and a variety of quaint towns, villages and the tiny city of St Davids with its striking cathedral.

An ideal base, perfect for friends and family to retreat to after a day soaking up the sun on the beach, walking the fantastic coast path, enjoying the breathtaking countryside, towns and villages or spending the day in one of the local theme parks.
