This quirky, unusual home - with many original features, including many stained glass windows and doors - has been featured in House Beautiful and will be unforgettable whether you stay just a few nights or more.

I live in Italy at the moment, but have a housekeeper and property manager who attend to any little issues like lost keys etc!

Beautiful, time-forgotten village with little, quaint streets and alleyways. People very friendly and look out for one another

We had a lovely stay at Janette's house. We were made to feel completely at home, the rooms were very comfortable, and the location of the house is superb. Thank you Janette!

The position of the house on the seafront is its best selling point. You should stay for this alone. The two local pubs are great and it was a superb weekend away from the bustle of London. I'd love to stay again in the Summer, but was lovely to light the log fire and be cosy in the living room.

This is really a beautiful house/apartment in a lovely village. The views are stunning, and many of the bedrooms and living areas look over the sea, just a few metres from the house. The house décor is great, renovated for modern functionality but with lots of original features, character and originality. There is a nice wood fire in the living room. Everything was as advertised, if anything there was a bit more space for sleeping than we had planned for. It was conveniently stocked with the basics, towels, spare toiletries, kitchen inventory etc etc. Janette was out of the country at the time of our visit but was very quick to respond to emails, and it was no problem at all to check in to the property. The village was very friendly, we visited over new year and experienced the traditional new year's eve fancy dress which seemingly everyone in the village and his dog (literally) joined in with, and also the bracing new year's day swim in the sea. One of the locals even gave us some firewood before we had found where the house supplies were stashed. Fully recommend!

We loved the place, it was so well located with great views and really homely. Janette was also a great host. We would return for a longer holiday.

Janette's house is beautiful, we all thoroughly enjoyed staying here - in a beautiful location. The views are beautiful, the house is restful and we felt so at home. To hear the sea while you fall asleep, and to wake up with a view of the sea and coastline in Kingsand was such a treat.
