“Perfect base for a beach holiday”
Reviewed 28 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We had a lovely stay at Waves. The house was clean and well stocked with all the mod cons. Gareth and Katrina had even left a note and bottle of bubbly on our arrival. It was a perfect place for a beach holiday, freahwater East beach being just a short walk and perfect for our small children. The longhouse has a small shop with some essentials, but is not always very well stocked but we found shops very close in Lampney and Pembroke. They also have food, a bar and a few arcade machines. We particularly enjoyed curry night there. Will definitely be returning to Waves.

“everything you could want in a sea-side rental”
Reviewed 8 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

The cottage is immaculately presented and is exactly as it appears in the pictures. I stayed with my 6 year old daughter and 76 year old parents - the house met all our needs, being spacious and comfortable and having only a 2 minute walk to the beautiful beach at Freshwater meant I could take my daughter there each morning to play.
Freshwater is a great location for exploring Pembrokeshire as many trips out, such as to Pembroke Castle, Tenby and the stunning Stackpole Estate, are only very short drives. If you are capable walkers you can get straight onto the coastal path from the site and the views are incredible; however the walk from Freshwater to Manorbier is pretty challenging! We would definitely explore Pembrokeshire and use 'Waves' as a base again.

“Peaceful week at a lovely place”
Reviewed 19 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We have just returned from a week at Waves.We know Freshwater East and Trewent quite well as we have holidayed there in the past when our children were young and were pleased to see that a lot of the chalets had been pleasantly updated.This is certainly the case with Waves ,we loved the seaside theme of the interior design and decoration and could see that a lot of thought had gone into it.The property is well equipped and comfortable and considering the limitations of the chalets it certainly met our needs. The owners also provide a nice welcome bottle of Buck's Fizz for your arrival,a nice touch.
Needless to say that it is only a short walk to Freshwaters beautiful beach and the Coastal Path,Pembroke Dock has supermarkets and you are just a short drive from Tenby and other coastal towns and beaches.
It has been mentioned that there is no mobile signal but with the wifi that can be overcome with internet phone systems if you need to contact anyone so wasn't a problem.
All in all we had a lovely week,the weather was good and we would certainly recommend Waves to anyone thinking of visiting the area.

“Nice, comfortable house, a stones throw away from some of the best beaches in Britain.”
Reviewed 22 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

The house was very clean and well equipped . The beds were comfortable and there was adequate storage for a weeks holiday.

I liked the yellow and blue colour scheme downstairs. I chose this house over others available on the parc because of the colour scheme. It is so cheerful and sunny.

Unusually, this house has a bath as well as a shower which is nice.

There is a small patio area outside. Although it separate from next door's patio, it is not very private as there is only a small wall between the two.

The owners had left a note for me and a bottle of Bucksfizz which was a nice gesture.

There is no mobile signal anywhere in the immediate area but the broadband connection was good.

Despite the parc catering for families, it was very quiet......which was nice.

Freshwater beach is a 5 min stroll away and there is a lovely coastal nature reserve next to the beach.

Stackpole Quay and the outstanding Barafundel Bay are 3 miles or so away.

Despite it being in high season, the roads and beaches were not crowded.

We had a day of drizzle so went into Tenby which is charming and only 20 mins away, then on to Narberth. The town has many interesting, independent shops and an excellent Spanish deli and cafe.

I would have no hesitation recommending this property to anyone.
It is homely and in the best part of Pembrokeshire. It is all you could hope for in a British seaside holiday and I do hope to return.

This part of Pembrokeshire is relatively undiscovered gem......lets hope it remains so.

Really good value for money. Clean, well equipped. Good location. Nice beach in walking distance. Amazing beaches a short drive away (you need to pay £5 for parking). Lots of good things to do a short drive away. Only reason I gave a 4 for location as there isn't very much in the way of facilities in walking distance.

“Bright and cozy apartment, lovely location”
Reviewed 10 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

The apartment is very clean and bright. Gareth and Katrina were both friendly and helpful.

Five minute walk from a really lovely beach, and a short drive from some stunning ones.

Kids and I were really happy with everything, and would definitely go back.
