We chose Ocean View House because of the large size of the apartment, the self-catering facilities (We enjoy cooking our own food), the balcony with a jacuzzi and the...

It is quite obvious that the rooms, fittings, linen etc have all been executed to a quality as opposed to a price. I especially liked the reading light on the extended arm over the bed. A wonderful view over the sea, friendly reception , friendly staff and delicous coffee at breakfast all added to a wonderful if short stay. Friendly...

He said he just had "a good feeling about the place" and that it "looked like the owner really loved it". I...
