      Feels like home, a tv would be nice.

      This three bedroom 6 sleeper capitalixes on the scarcity of self-catering accommodation in the East Coast resorts of East London. We selected the accommodation knowing what to expect having been there before, but given another option would in all likelihood go elsewhere. (We have family living permanently in the complex, making it suitable.)The price is high given the "beach shack" facilities, with a motley assortment of cutlery crockery and glassware. At a lower price it would be fair value.

      This could be a wonderful getaway IF the facilities were adequate - cooking utensils almost non existent, pots etc not big enough for a family of 6. Could have done with a few more homely touches like a radio (we enjoyed the fact that there was no TV - but only 2 decks of cards a few more family games would have been nice). The directions and how to actually gain access to the property were dreadful - if it weren't for the fact that we actually bumped into the owner I am not sure how we would have found the cottage. Again luckily I have some knowledge of the area as there was no information...

      It was very pleasant and the complex is very quiet and the people around were very helpful and kind. Very nice place to go to with kids as it's secure and kids can't go to the beach without a older child with or a adult.
