We parked our car strickly in accordance with the instructions supplied, but then found within a couple of hours that a Parking Fine was attached to the windscreen . This was a real spoiler for any enjoyment on the first day of our Holiday.

I will tick yes to recommend this property but only on the assumption that the parking fiasco is addressed. Hide

The apartment is modern and comfortable. The harbour setting and outlook is stunning and something I'd never tire of. Rachel, the housekeeper, couldn't have been more helpful or thoughtful throughout our stay. We wouldn't hesitate to book again.

The Penthouse was fantastic, right from arrival with the lovely welcome touches by the housekeeper, to the facilities, decor & comfort. A really great location to relax in, yet with views of the hubbub of the harbour life below. The exterior has a wrap-around balcony so that different views of West Bay can be taken in. This also allows the possibilRead moreity to get shade when the sun is too strong. We could find no fault with this property and would happily stay again and recommend to others. Hide
