We really enjoyed our stay here - the flat was fantastic and beyond our expectations, decorated to a very high standard and very spacious. We had a warm Welsh welcome from Katherine - including Welsh cakes when we arrived - and she was on hand via phone for any questions we had. The flat is in a great location - just minutes from the cafes and restaurants along the sea road of Mumbles but very quiet nevertheless. Although the weather in early February was too cold to enjoy the small courtyard outside the front door, it would be a real suntrap in the summer. We will definitely be back.
We were delighted when we opened the door to this beautiful apartment on a rainy January night. It is at once homely, clean, welcoming and extremely well-equipped. There was also a lovely welcome pack of goodies, slippers and bathrobes - loads of really lovely touches which make the difference with holiday rentals. It is also in a perfect location for exploring Mumbles and the surrounding beaches - you can walk from the door along the coastal path or if you fancy going a bit further, it is easy to drive from there too. The apartment has its own garage behind, which is great as the roads are small and there is not much parking otherwise. The garden looked like it would be gorgeous but of course in January, we didn't really get much use out of it! There are loads of good pubs (The Park Inn around the corner is just so lovely) and restaurants nearby, as well as a couple of supermarkets and local shops, so you don't really need the car. The owners are extremely helpful and have provided a wealth of information in the apartment to help orientate visitors who are new to the area. We definitely hope to return to Little Sea Sparkle next year!
Situated halfway up a narrow hill, a few minutes walk from the Mumbles promenade, shops and good restaurants, this clean, well-maintained and appointed ground floor garden flat was a perfect quiet winter weekend retreat for us. There is a church and sea view from the sitting room and a bonus of a very welcome pack on arrival. Comfortable beds and linens too.
We arrived by train and taxi, but there is a parking space at the top of the hill if necessary.
The apartment was immaculate and provisions to tide us to breakfast was a nice touch. Approx 100 metres from the sea front and promenade.
A good introduction pack gave us all the info we needed; restaurants, butchers, and walks, and loads more.
Kath and Mike were really helpful when I demonstrated my inability with technology.
Would definitely stay again.
Katherine and Mike made us feel very welcome to their lovely home.
On our arrival, there was a box of goodies including bread, jam, milk and butter, tea and coffee, all the essentials required after a long journey, which was very thoughtful!
The apartment was very clean and tidy and is an excellent base from which to explore the mumbles and surrounding areas. If you enjoy walking, then you are in for a treat!
Well worth the visit to Little Sea Sparkle
Immaculately presented apartment with a warm welcome, and added finishing touches. Only a couple of minutes walk to the sea front and Mumbles shops and restaurants, with the added bonus of garage parking. A beautiful, tiered garden with views across the bay. We spent a lovely week exploring the coastline and we hope to return.
Katherine and Mike are superb hosts, we felt relaxed from the moment we arrived and Little Sea Sparkle is highly recommended.
The shops, pubs and restaurants of The Mumbles are all within an easy walk and the Gower coast path is easily accessible on foot from the door. Views of Swansea Bay from the lounge were only rivalled by the great interior design and personal attention to detail that abound in this apartment/garden.
This was our second visit of the year and there will definitely be more visits in the future. Communication and booking process was excellent - great location and great accommodation. 5*
