Although no smoking is allowed inside the chalet there is a porch outside where smokers can indulge.

"Don't believe everything you read on Trip Advisor"
The chalet was clean enough and well-equipped,apart from no grater! The double bed is creaky and the taps in the kitchen still drip, despite being mentioned several weeks prior to our stay. The key … More
I am so sorry that you did not enjoy your stay at the chalet. I take my guest's holidays very seriously and do my very best to ensure they have everything they need when they stay. Guests always have my mobile and home numbers and can call me if there is anything they need. I would have been more than happy to pop over with a grater, new key hook and plumber for the taps if only you had told me. The taps had been checked after the previous mention and seemed fine. I am usually very happy to receive feedback from guests that can help me to improve the chalet however I was most upset by your review title which implies that I have misleading information about the chalet and location on my site. To address your comments firstly may I point out that I am very clear and honest about the chalet and area it is in. I state very clearly what the sleeping arrangements are and are very common for this type of chalet. I also say in my description that for larger groups there are two padded outdoor chairs that can be used as additional seating. Usually if more than 4 people want to book the chalet it will include children and if more than 4 adults want to book I make very clear to them that there is a sofa bed and bunk bed. I am confused regarding your comments on the beach; it is used by most able bodied people and families with buggies and beach chairs etc manage the slope and stairs to the beach with no problem. I do not say that the chalet is suitable for people with mobility problems and if a guest is less than able then it is only fair to let me know and I could inform them of this fact. About the beach: there are indeed boulders at the base of the cliff which are placed there as defence against erosion and although there is a bit of shingle it is mainly sandy and generally regarded as a decent beach. Finally about the bed; sorry the bottom double bunk is a bit squeaky, I'll have a look at what can be done about it. After an overwhelmingly positive response from guests I do believe that my chalet offers good value for money. I hope you find something more suitable for you on your next holiday.
