Glorious stay in a beautifully positioned apartment with sweeping views of the bay. The apartment is spacious and restful, the location perfect with wonderful restaurants within walking distance. The highlight was being told by Jenny that at high tide there are steps at the bottom of the street directly into the sea for refreshing swims-we timed the tides perfectly! We stayed 6 nights and could of easily stayed 6 more.
I feel so privileged to have stayed in The Loft. I had little idea from the internet photos as to just how beautiful your apartment was. It is so much more spacious than I envisaged, and nothing could prepare me for The Bed. What a fabulous concept, executed with such flair, vision and ability. I shall say no more - it is your gift to your guests. I am in awe. To be surrounded with so many beautiful artworks, with the sun flooding in (bare feet in the heart of winter, with views across the sea to the snowy hills, and at dusk the lights of the shipping entering the harbour), all the little touches like fresh herbs, lemons, chocolates, jonquils... I felt a million dollars and have come away rested (despite my hectic schedule) and energised. I appreciated the brief but sincere contact I had with you both, and that The Loft is easily accessible and private, on a quiet street - but facing onto the waterfront, with great parking space. Thank you.
