“Best of both worlds”
Reviewed November 11, 2013 for a stay in November 2013

I have stayed here several times before and each one is as good as the last. Having everything on one level is excellent as my mum as mobility issues. You have the best of both worlds as the apartment is quiet and peaceful, but a few minutes walk will take you into the hustle and bustle of the town. Fran is very informative and is always very accommodating with arrival and departure times. Frances is a delight, always there to meet you with a smile and a chat. Look forward to going back. PS the tins of chocolates went down a treat thank you.

Hi Julie
It was a pleasure to have you and the family stay with us once again. Sorry I didn't get to see you this time but Frances is so good you probably didn't miss me! I'm glad you had a good time and hopefully I will see you next time you are in Newcastle. I will be in touch. Take care.

Gorgeous, roomy and well-equipped apartment. Amazing views. Could have just sat, drinking hot chocolate and watching the waves roll in forever!

“The flat is so comfortable, we felt right at home - but I wish home had a view like this.”

The first thing I noted was how safe and secure the flat is even though it is on the ground floor. The kitchen is very well equipped with everything you need to cook for the full six people it can sleep. The lounge and bedrooms are very well furnished and the panoramic view across Newcastle bay is superb.
Two minutes takes you on to the main street of Newcastle with its great spread of shops cafes and places of entertainment. A real jem suitable for all ages.

Hi Lydia
Lovely to hear from you. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay - I'm looking forward to seeing you again in June. We didn't manage to see a basking shark this time in the Bay but maybe next year! Thank you for your home-made shortbread and raspberry jam - they were delicious.
Can I take this opportunity to wish you and your family Best Wishes for 2013. Take care. Regards - Fran xo
