“Ideal property for two families or extended family.”
Reviewed November 3, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

As parents of three small children on holiday with friends who also had children, this property met our needs perfectly. The layout of the town house enabled each family to occupy either the ground floor or the top floor whilst the living room diner provided a fantastic communal space with great views out to sea. The property was well equipped and pleasant and thought had clearly been put into making it a safe place for children. The location was well suited for families with a playground and bike track in close proximity. We were made to feel most welcome and thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

“Lovely House; Great Location!”
Reviewed June 2, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Lifeboat View is superbly equipped and ideal for an extended family. Grandparents had the downstairs accommodation, young folk the top floor. Views from the lounge and balcony are lovely. The children loved the summerhouse and conservatory. We all enjoyed locally caught fish, crab and jellied eels!

We rented the property from Max and Mary for a family weekend to celebrate my wife's 60th birthday. The property was just right for our party of 10. The property is equiped with everything you will need for your stay. Couldn't ask for more.
The sea views are great as are the walks along the seafront. Pub and shops are close and worth a visit.
Although it poured down on Thursday somehow Max sorted the weather for a great weekend, bit breezy but other than that, it was great.
Communicationn with Max to sort out arrangements was easy and his replies always very quick.

Would recommend to anyone and will certainly visit again ourselves.

“Lovely sea views”
Reviewed February 5, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

Easy and quick to deal with Max, the owner (who kindly let us off a bowl breakage). Everything you need for a lovely holiday by the sea, complete with a separate flat downstairs. Great little parade of local shops. Green opposite to walk your dog, as well as the beach promenade. Play park for little ones, skate board area for older ones. Being met at the door by the lovely Kath was a great start to our fab weekend.

“Wonderful Holiday!”
Reviewed August 5, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

This was our second visit to the house after a wonderful experience we'd had the year previous. So it must have made a great impression on us all. There was always plenty of space for the 10 of us and although the kitchen wasn't huge, it was plenty of space considering we only really needed two people in the kitchen to cook anyway! All the bed linen and towels provided were clean and tidy. The view of the sea from the balcony was definitely something to wake up to! Overall we had a brilliant week! great value for money! Definitely recommend it to all!!

“Great Location”
Reviewed January 4, 2014 for a stay in December 2013

This is our 2nd time of visiting Lifeboat View so we must like it. Plenty of room for our party, kitchen not the biggest but how many people do you want to get in a kitchen. All bedrooms & bed linen clean and tidy. Lovely sized lounge with great view out to see. Local pub & shops within walking distance. Overall good value for your money.
