Fantastic home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Can't speak highly enough about this property. Great location in the most beautiful street. Close to the beach, coffee shops, just perfect. Immaculately clean, and Rosemary has thought of every possible thing you may need while visiting. So much food supplied we couldn't possibly eat it all! Great value for money, highly recommend!

We stayed 2 nights as an Anniversary getaway. The hosts spoilt us with an Anniversary gift, bubbly & amazing provisions for our stay. Sur la Mer is a very comfortable, very well equipped Studio apartment. We will recommend to family & friends.

Fantastic little house and hosts.

We had a lovely time at Sur la Mer. Fabulous spot. Delightful hosts. Comfortable bed and all the amenities we required. The hamper provided was amazing. Local rock pools were perfect for our infant to splash about. Good local coffee shops and walks on the beach. We thoroughly recommend staying here.

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for 3 days in Jan 2016. Warm welcome from our host who made us immediately comfortable and at home. The food hamper provided was amazing, everything we could possibly need. Kitchen is fully stocked and equipped. Very comfy bed, and even turn down chocolates and a gift to take home. Easy short walk to the beach, secure onsite parking with remote control gate. Definitely recommend and would stay again.
