Easy to find this bright white apartment. Property was clean and tidy and all we wanted from a holiday home. The welcome basket was amazing, bread, butter, marmalade, eggs ,bacon, crisps, biscuits, milk, tea, coffee and selection of mini cereal boxes! What more could you want? 4 in my party- my husband and another couple. The men played golf every day. Some fantastic courses around Porthcawl and if anyone wants to know where they played please ask.
Kay and Andrew the owners readily available if needed.

The gateway is very nicley decorated ad convenient for everything Porthcawl has to offer. The owners are very friendly and helpful and communication was excellent we were greeted at the door and shown everything. There was no stress or bother at all, we went straight into relaxing mode and stayed like that the whole time

Well what can I say.....the warm welcome we received when we arrived was lovely, the welcome pack was more than fabulous, the apartment was beautiful, as soon as we sat down we felt at home. It was so very clean throughout the property, so very quiet around as well, heating system was easy to use, very close by to everything you need, Chinese across the road, shop not far away...we only stayed 2 nights but had no issues at all, fantastic communication from the owner....the only downside we can think of is....we only booked for 2 nights, really wish we he booked for longer. But we will be back it's beautiful

This is probably one of the best places I've stayed. My son and I travel together a lot and we were extremely happy with the apartment. Nothing was too much trouble for the owner and we felt very touched by the 'Welcome' basket of food when we arrived. The apartment was beautifully furnished in a nautical theme and immaculately clean. Beds very comfortable. Also, all on ground floor level.There was plenty of information of where to visit and the owner was always available to answer any queries and was there immediately if there was a problem. A nice little going away gift for us too. Will definitely visit again, Loved it. Thank you so much :)
