“Home from home”
Reviewed June 24, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Syayed in Rest Bay Close with my wife and young daughter.
Guy the owner was extremely helpful throughout th booking process and the flat did not disappoint. Well appointed / clean / home from home and in a great location. It was a few minutes drive from Porthcawl and also the fantastic Rest bay beach. Half an hour from Cardiff and Swansea.
We have had a great week exploring the area and going to the beach. We would definitely return in the future . Many thanks Guy.

“Wonderful”
Reviewed May 4, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

We spent two months at this little flat and it was truly home away from home. Well appointed and the owner was very obliging and accommodating, helping us resolve some issues. It is a fair walk from the town itself--but good for those who like a healthy hike--but super close to Rest Bay and the coast walk. Porthcawl itself is well located and a vibrant, lively place even in the early spring. We will certainly return!

The apartment was comfortable and extremely well equipped. All the arrangements for arrival and departure ran smoothly, and there were clear instructions for how things worked. We found it an ideal location for exploring the wider area, including Gower and the Valleys. The beach was a very short walk away, so would be great in summer, parking problem solved.

“Great place to stay in Porthcawl”
Reviewed June 29, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Perfect place to stay in Porthcawl. It was on the second floor which provided great views of Rest Bay. I could see this being an issue if you have mobility problems, but for us it was great. We really appreciated the washing machine in the flat; it was a big help! Really quiet residential neighborhood with friendly neighbors. We had a small car and couldn't park in the driveway; it would be better if the shrubbery was removed by the driveway. That was the only thing that was a mild inconvenience, but a neighbor said we could park along the sidewalk so we did for the duration of our stay so parking was not a huge issue. I would stay there again for sure!

“Comfortable, well equipped and very good value”
Reviewed June 15, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We found the flat very comfortable and well equipped in a quiet area. It was easy to find; the clear directions were confirmed entirely by the sat nav! There was a very clearly set out information manual for all the equipment. Rest bay is delightful and is truly only a short walk away. Porthcawl is a longer walk or a very short drive and the Co-op was very well stocked for food and groceries. There are beautiful bays and coast walks a short distance away, such as Dunraven bay. Overall this flat was very good value for money.
