This is our second visit to Shearwater on Sea and we will continue to come back. The service was good with our first visit 2 years ago, but this time around the service was excellent! I have to mention JC who is one of the most efficient employees we have ever seen! He was at reception, we saw him walking... More

I loved every minute and my husband said we'll have to bring the kids and our parents - make it a family holiday next time. JC and Carol, the hosts, were great - friendly and efficient. We'll be back and hope to find them there.

We spent two weeks here during our family vacation and found it to be great value for money. It is about 50m from the beach and across the street from the best beach bar / restaurant in town - no need for anything else. The view from our unit was great! We stayed in a newly refurbished self catering unit... More

Carol & JC are efficient and helpful which makes the stay more pleasurable. Lovely pool, and garden area currently still under construction. Very good position one block from a wonderful beach, coffee shop & pizzeria. Not in the main centre of Sedgefield, but I prefer that. Upstairs units are more likely to have a sea view. Safe parking on site.... More

Most enjoyable and comfortable. Once the renovations are completed, it would improve comfort, relaxation and pleasure. The friendliness of the staf, and especially that of the Manager, Mr JC Japhta, was above expectations.

Perhaps a shuttle to town or local attractions could be nice.I am a single lady that doesn't travel alone much any more by car and I know that this is a problem for single people or even couples that want to do a bit of sightseen.

The rooms were clean, the cleaners came daily and were very, very thorough, and we did not even hear our neighbours. There was however, little to no ocean view and no mobile signal and we had the noisiest fridge in the world. It's a very nice place to stay if you have plans for every day, so perfect for us,...

The units are extremely small for just for two adults, don't know how you can fit kids into this small space. We've expected so much more. Tidy but definitely not a home away from home. We will not return for another stay, although the scenery is stunning.

We had a time share exchange here in Feb 2015 and it was the by far the worse place we have ever stayed anywhere in the world. The apartment was very small and most uncomfortable.
