Good service , organized and efficient booking, the place was well placed, bedding clean and well serviced, security gate system was good , undercover parking great, front sliding glass door lock not secure and should be replaced. Overall great place and would recommend any one with a family to stay.

We had a wonderful stay at Shearwater on Sea. It was awesome to watch the sea from the balcony even though we were not on the beach front! We were near a restaurant which also had good food. We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay there again.

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.
