I will most definitely stay at this place again. The room was very roomy, the staff was very accommodating. Right in the middle of town and walk to everything, beach, shops, pub (next door). Great spot.

Well equipped and clean apartment in such a great location. Beautiful beach within an easy walk. We had a ground floor room which gave easy access to everything and a lovely area to sit outside. Was worried about being so close to road and corner but that wasn't a problem. The staff were friendly and helpful.
