We recently spent two nights at No 9, a two bedroom self catering downstairs apartment. Very clean, neat and perfectly decorated - just like home. Basie and Marie made sure we were comfortable and all our needs taken care of. Perfectly situated, a nice short walk from the beach, Spar even closer, and very well priced. We loved this place...

Been to this complex before and it's really nice, clean and quiet, close to the beach and town. However the flat we have rented this time is anything but nice.

Our first experience when arriving at the River Club while on honeymoon was woman fighting right outside our sliding door with extremely vulgar language and physical fighting. The wrong element is allowed there and it made our whole stay unpleasant as I am sure it did for others. Over and above this the curtains were badly marked and filthy!!

The owners of these properties were so...

lovely accommodation, great location, child friendly, safe. We usually stay at the BEACON ISLE but wanted a self catering holiday. We barbequed with friends sat on the porch and the kids had a wonderful time playing outside. Pool was warm and clean, played tennis etc.

Located in a nice surrounding with a terrace looking in the garden like common green it should have been a wonderful stay, but the badly equipped rooms put an ennoying touch to our vacation (only 1 shower, no fan in the second bedroom, pieces of crockery from all over the world, no plunger, no teapot, not enough towels etc.).
