Owner's comment - 'A wonderfully cosy flat that brings plenty of happy memories all year round, with such amazing sea views. I particularly look forward to spending summers sitting on the balcony and then pottering around in my quiet garden. It's a fantastic place to work and live. Friends are always asking to come and stay!'.
