5/5 Excellent

180 degree water and mountain views
Furniture a little more shabby than chic and bathroom facilities very basic. That said, the booking process was easy, the furniture and beds were very comfortable, the house was very clean, tidy and private and the views amazing.

5/5 Excellent

Most gorgeous little retro beachouse!
We loved our stay at the hideaway in Swansea. The house is just lovely and the view from the master bedroom is just amazing. The little private beach was complete with seals swimming out the front. The house was so clean and tidy and I’m so impressed at how it was styled with all the retro decor in such good condition. Would definitely book again!

5/5 Excellent

The most wonderful couple of days in Swansea! The house was perfect and the views were incredible! The weather was not great and we walked in and the fire was ready to be lit with plenty of firewood - so nice to sit in front of the fire looking out to the ocean! Andrew was wonderful offering some great recommendations for our stay! Highly recommend!!

4/5 Good

Great Location
This property is located right on the beach. It has fantastic views from the bedrooms and lounge. It has almost everything you need. Although a few coat hangers would make life much easier. We were there in May and needed the heaters which worked well. We weren’t confident using the open fire but didn’t really need it. We also ate out for all meals except breakfast so didn’t need the cooking facilities. The beds were very comfortable and we slept well. Worth a visit.

5/5 Excellent

Gorgeous beachhouse
Absolutely loved this beachfront property. Photos don't do it justice. View of the sunrise from bedroom was amazing. Loved the quirkiness of the furnishings. Great communication from the host, and he is even arranging to send a jacket home that we mistakenly left behind in the house. A couple of new saucepans wouldn't go astray, but this very minor detail. Would definitely stay here again without doubt.
