We wanted somewhere cozy to hunker down in, and get away from it all. With awesome sea views, luxurious interior, top notch fixtures & fittings, with enough delis & eateries close by that we could leave the car parked up and not have to drive. Not asking for much, were we.
Well, Seahorse Apartments ticked all those boxes, and more.
We stayed in the Penthouse apartment, which has exclusive access to the private roof terrace - thought we'd push the (metaphoric) boat out. But seeing as it was the stormiest weekend for a zillion years, unfortunately we didn't manage to make the most of the terrace. But when you've got floor to ceiling windows in the living room, and the same in the dining room (which open wide onto a large balcony) we didn't feel hard done by. At all.
Nice touches like hand made chocs on the pillows, fresh bag of ground coffee etc, made for a very welcome feel on arrival.
Given the horrendous weather, it was reassuring to be checked on each day just to make sure we were ok - felt a tad guilty to be in pj's still lounging around (weather & people watching) until early afternoon! But each time we asked ourselves 'anyone want to go anywhere / further afield'? Got a firm naaaaaaa- more than happy as we are.
We'll definitely come back again in fairer weather - got to make the most of that view, and the roof terrace (hot tub and all).
Spot on accommodation - pricey, but so worth it. Loving your work, Westward Living.
