“Excellent property”
Reviewed June 28, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Once again we have stayed in this apartment and found it just as claen and well equipped as other years we have stayed.Already pencilled in for 2018. The dedicated parking space is a bonus and the owner is very friendly and provides a welcome pck and all essentials such as Tea, coffee, milk etc. Thre owner has a cafe/beach shop adjacent the apartment with good coffee and great cream teas. Teh esplanade attractions are a short walk away and there are plenty of eating places offering a wide variety of foods.

Just spent a week at the apartment. It's a great location - the beach is right outside. Wonderful views. The apartment has everything you need and is very comfortable. Sara, the owner, was welcoming. Off street parking was handy.

“SECOND TO NO ONE.”
Reviewed April 21, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

I really don't know where to start.
This beautiful apartment is truly everything you could possibly want, need and more besides.
Inside it's so well thought out, Sara has thought of everything to make the stay, home from home.
The location is just wonderful, you can sit outside on the patio area and watch the world go by, or take a very very short walk to the restaurants and bars.
I cannot recommend Sara and the Seagull apartment highly enough.
We will never go anywhere else now.
Do yourself the biggest favour, book yourself in, you won't regret it.

“Wonderful Seaside Apartment”
Reviewed July 14, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We have stayed at Seagull View several times, and it is always a complete pleasure. The owner is a charming lady and the apartment has everything you need to enjoy your holiday. It is very comfortably furnished and very clean. Sara thoughtfully provides milk tea/coffee for your arrival. She also has a shop just in front of the apartment that sells the finest ice cream on the island. We were very lucky with the weather and were able to take full advantage of the terrace area at the front, overlooking the sea. We are looking forward to booking for next year.

“Very Good Property”
Reviewed July 4, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We have stayed before and this year found the property just as clean and well equipped as before with every thing you need for your stay. There is a welcome pack with all the essentials such as tea, coffee, milk etc. The owner is friendly and will help with any problem and the dedicated parking space is a great asset.

The entrance patio is accessed via a short flight of steps with a handrail.

The beach is just a few yards away and the esplanade attractions are very close as well.
