Fabulous property for dog friendly stay - garden is secure for off lead and the apartment us spacious wnough to not feel on top of each other. Parking is limited and on-street parallel parking. Lovely comfortable bed, heating works wonders and warms up very quickly. The shower is nice and powerful and temperature stays consistent. Property feels seRead morecure and in a quiet location. It is up a hill (and access to the property is down some steep steps) so walking may not be ideal for some Hide

The apartment and garden were lovely with a patio which was in the sun for most of the day and it was so relaxing looking out from the garden to the sea. Everything possible to give you a happy holiday was supplied.

The lack of adequate parking is very much a downside of this property, especially on arrival and leaving when having to carry cases etc several street away is not good. Having to drive round and round to find parking each evening rather spoilt some lovely days out.

Comfortable and well equipped lower ground floor apartment with a lovely garden looking out over the, sea which captures the sun throughout the day.

Beautiful apartment which feels like you are staying in someone's home rather than a rental. Spotlessly clean and excellent quality towels and bef linen. Only problem is the parking. If you are very lucky you will be able to park outside the property. If not, you will need to park 100s of yards away which is inconvenient for unloading/loading.

Reviewed by Tracey 28th June 2019

The location is quiet and the seaview from the patio pleasant. Local tourist attractions are easily accessible and of personal great interest. The decoration and accommodation are tastefully done with adequate equipment and appliances including 3D TV and dishwasher. Lovely bed linen and towels.

Second visit to vista sur mar and it was better than the first. Location, decor, apartment and cleanliness all 10 out of 10. The dog loves the garden and the walks along the prom. The chips on the pier are good too!!!!! Looking forward to another break next year.

We have had such a relaxing stay in your beautiful apartment. It is immaculate and so tastefully decorated with attention to detail. The bed and bedding are of very high quality and we slept really well. The only suggestion we have is to consider a black-out blind behind the shutters but this did not detract from our stay. We really appreciated youRead morer generosity with the welcome food items, kitchen extras, plenty of towels and toiletries. We look forward to coming back again. Best wishes, Hide
