Spindrift is situated right by the sea. Nearly every window has the most amazing sea views.
It has 3 bedrooms, which comfortably sleep 6, or up 7, with 3 people sleeping in the downstairs bedroom with a double bed and a single bed in a bunk bed arrangement. Upstairs there is a twin and a double bed, and a bathroom, and there is a downstairs shower and toilet too.
Up to two well behaved pets are welcome, although the garden is not dog proof, as the wall is low to keep the view, it is enclosed.
Hopefully we have thought of everything you need to help you have a delightful stay. We supply all bedlinen, and two towels per person too, as you can never have too many towels by the beach! Heating, electricity and Wi-fi access are all included in the price, and the property has full central heating, as well as underfloor heating in the entrance hall and both bathrooms, and an electric fire in the open plan kitchen diner.
The heating is now provided by a state of the art air source heat pump, and the temperature of the house is cleverly maintained at a very comfortable 22 degrees. It trickles heat into the house as it dissipates through the walls windows and roof, and so the radiators never get hot-hot, and the house temp never varies by more than 1/2 degree. If you know you have to have a house hotter than this, the temperature cannot just be turned up. Most people find this a T shirt temperature, so don’t worry, unless you know you have a medical condition.
We aim to help you relax into your holiday straight away, with a Welcome basket containing milk, various local goodies, and a bottle of wine. The cottage layout is :
Well equipped kitchen with microwave, gas hob, electric oven, toaster, kettle, fridge, small freezer, washing machine, dishwasher, pots, pans, utensils etc. Superb view of the sea while you prepare your supper at the island.
The dining area is an L-shape with the kitchen. The dining table looks out through patio doors to the sea, and the Cemaes Bay beach, so you can enjoy the view while you eat.
Between the kitchen and the dining table is an open plan relaxed sitting area, with a comfortable sofa, perfect for pre dinner drinks.
The first part of the living room is the TV/games area, with a flat screen TV with free view, surround sound and DVD player. The surround sound also plays ipods, so do bring your music. There is also a coffee table, and a selection of games including Monopoly, Blokus, Chess etc, cards, for any rainy days – after you have come back from all the rainy day activities outside of course!
As you continue through the games area, the view just keeps on giving, and we have a corner sofa and bean bag where you can sit, meditate, read, chat, watch the sun go down over the sea, watch dolphins swim by…. yes really! While they are more often spotted off Wylfa head, early to mid morning when the current is strong, they do sometimes swim right infront of the house, and friends have swam with then in the bay itself.
Master Bedroom – Upstairs (Sleeps 2)
This bedroom has the very best sea views with 2 windows both overlooking the sea, the double bed is orientated so you can see out of both, and enjoy amazing views while you sip your first cup of tea or coffee in the morning.
Second Bedroom – Upstairs (Sleeps 2)
This is the largest bedroom, with plenty of space for a cot. Contains two single beds. There is plenty of storage space, with a wardrobes, and a stunning sea view.
Downstairs Bedroom (Sleeps 2/3)
Three sleeper bunk-bed. Double bed on the bottom, and single bunk on the top. It is a Jay-be bed, so substantial. While I cannot call this a bedroom with a sea view, the sea can still be glimpsed even from this room. Some holiday cottages would be sold on the view from this room!
Shower, sink and toilet. Probably the best view from a shower in the world! The bath shower is P shaped, so the shower has plenty of room. The glass is covered with a one way film, so if it is darker in the bathroom than it is outside, no one can see in… so you do not need to put the blind down unless it is dark, and you have the light on!
Shower, sink and toilet. electric razor point, plenty of light. Tiled floor with underfloor heating.
Great area for wet dogs, fitted with a kiddy guard so you can keep dogs there while they dry! Underfloor heating to help dry everything out. There is a washing machine and tumble dryer tucked away in the cupboard.
There is a small garden at the front of the house, with a gate leading onto the coastal path. It is a great place to sit outside in the sunshine, and has a substantial picnic bench, that you can move to the sunniest spot, and enjoy the view of the beach. There is also a Weber barbeque in the shed at the back of the house, near where you park, and an outside tap for rinsing off sandy wetsuits.
