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 a wood burning stove in the lounge.
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 in two directions, and serving hatch through to the dining area. In the next door conservatory there is a tumble dryer and a larger freezer.
The lounge dining area is an L-shape. The dining table is next to the kitchen, connected by the very handy serving hatch. 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.
Next to the dining area is an open plan relaxed sitting area, with comfortable conservatory style furniture, another window with a view, and a log burning stove for cosy Winter evenings.
Around the corner of the L- shape from this 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!
There are another 2 sofas and chairs in this area for comfortable TV/games, and a mirror to reflect the sea view.
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. Fitted wardrobes along one wall provide excellent storage.
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 fitted 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.
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.
Shower (with foldaway seat), sink and toilet. This shower probably has the second best view in the world 🙂 Tiled floor with underfloor heating.
Great area for wet dogs, with a fitted cupboard for storage, and hanging space for wetsuits by the boiler, to ensure a dry wetsuit in the morning. Nothing worse than a cold wet wetsuit! Underfloor heating to help dry everything out.
This catches the evening sun. A lovely place for a sun downer, or supper for 2, if you are not barbequeing. From here you can watch for dolphins feeding off the headland, the sun dropping into the sea, or the ships cruising across the horizon. There is a tumble dryer tucked away in an alcove of the conservatory, and an extra freezer.
It is simply fitted out with a bar table and bar stools (tall so you can see the view), a raised sofa with foot stools, and a rocking chair.
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.
