Everything looks brand spanking new and shiny and the apartment was very comfortable, the owners have thought of everything. The view out to Swanpool Bay is stunning and I would love to stay there in the summer to be able to sit out on the lovely private patio to enjoy it.

Only downside - I wouldn't recommend it without a car!!

Liked the sea view first thing in the morning what ever the weather.The property was very good suitable for a disabled person the only things I might suggest are a hand rail in the shower as floor very slippery before you get to the mat . Also a second step into the front door to help with getting in . If you are in a self propelled wheel chair the green beside the property is quite a hard push as it is a steep slope. I would recommend it to anyone .

The directions to the property need correcting

Thanks for your feedback following your stay at Bay Retreat. There are severeal interlinking roads that lead to the property, each of which has the same name which we appreciate can be a little confusing. We've been in touch with the owner directly and we're in the process of checking and updating the directions to try to make them a little clearer. Bryony, Customer Support
