Little Sea Sparkle is a deceptively large 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Mumbles, occupying the ground floor of a grand Victorian house, overlooking the sea and is just perfect for couples wishing to relax and take time away together. It has a lovely tiered garden with wide stretching views over the bay and to the valleys beyond and a charming walled courtyard where you can relax and dine alfresco. Sitting in a slightly elevated position, a mere 300 yard hop skip and a jump and you're strolling the promenade. To the left lies the city of Swansea, to the right continues the glorious Gower peninsular coastline. The apartment. As you enter, it immediately envelopes you in a great, big, warm Welsh cwtch (cuddle) and we are privileged to own this lovely, light filled apartment in the very heart of the quirky, bustling Mumbles village. Its a perfect retreat, summer or winter, for couples wanting to get away and relax. Its a cosy, romantic hideaway with privacy, space, comfort and many little extra luxuries. The apartment was lovingly renovated and brought back to life in 2015/16, with quality being of great importance, everything has been finished to a very high standard and luxury fixtures and fittings added. Little Sea Sparkle lends itself nicely to being an adults only space, therefore a lot of thought and much attention to detail has gone into the renovation. You can choose from one of the two prettily decorated bedrooms, each with a king size bed and plenty of wardrobe and draw space. The bedroom to the rear of the property has an en suite with a powerful walk in shower and has its own access to the garden. It is decorated in a fresh, nautical theme, capturing the coastal feel of the area. Crisp white bed linen and towels are provided, along with toweling robes for use during your stay and complimentary slippers and toiletries. The second bedroom, equally attractive, decorated in restful pale blues, looks out to the pretty courtyard. The stylish bathroom has a contemporary bath with chrome feet and a powerful over bath shower with an abundance of hot water. The kitchen, overlooking the courtyard, is the heart of the apartment and the morning light streams in through the charming shutter covered window. It is modern and up to date with all new appliances, gas hob, electric oven, dishwasher, washing machine, fridge, freezer, microwave etc. However the kitchen reflects the period of the property and retains some of the Victorian elements, such as high ceilings and deep window recesses. A lovely kitchen to cook in if you decide to dine in and take advantage of the wonderful Gower produce on sale in season, visit the local fishmonger or if you are sampling some of the goodies you have found if you have visited the farmers market (second Saturday of every month). The hallway leads to bedroom two and the lovely high celinged, light filled, lounge. The floor to ceiling windows look to the front of the property over the sweeping bay, towards Swansea Marina and the sometimes snow capped mountains in the distance. The decor is pale and has a restful feel and the furniture very comfortable. When wandering through the shops in Mumbles you may see decorative slate signs which say 'the English cuddle, but the Welsh cwtch'. Well, here is the place, to kick off your shoes, enjoy your glass of wine and cwtch on the comfy sofas. Read, listen to music, take time to talk or watch a good film, with the lights of the bay twinkling in the distance. When you arrive at Little sea Sparkle, you enter the graveled courtyard. To the left, takes you to the tiered garden. From this elevated position you have a good view of the bay and the near five mile sweep of the prom to the city of Swansea. The courtyard and garden has sheltered seating and dining areas to relax and enjoy in. The garden has been planted with a selection of coastal grasses and colorful seasonal plants. All in all, I would describe Little Sea Sparkle as a mix of traditional, with a touch of modern, eclectic seaside. Its a Victorian home, melding with 21st century modern facilities, with a strong focus on romantic, cosy, comfort. Whether you choose to abandon the car, kick off your shoes and relax. Or put on your walking boots and walk the cliffs of the incredible Gower coastline, Little Sea Sparkle is your perfect retreat summer or winter. All Linen and towels for 2 persons are inclusive in the rate for 1 kingsize bed. Please speak to the owner if additional linen is required (extra cost will incur). More

About the neighbourhood
You can, if you choose, park up for the whole of your stay, there is plenty to see and do. Wander the narrow, higgledy piggledy streets of Mumbles, lined with prettily painted fisherman's cottages, to the chic, yet cosy amenities of Mumbles village. Maybe pack up a picnic and a bottle of wine and take a stroll to the beach on a lazy summer day - Hire bikes and cycle along the promenade to Swansea and the marina - Catch a rugby match with the Ospreys at the Liberty stadium - Or maybe walk the cliffs to Langland and Caswell bays, stop for a long lunch and watch the surfers ride the waves. Possibly a visit to the pier and new lifeboat station - Explore Oystermouth castle - Enjoy a peaceful afternoon fishing, the list goes on and on.
Getting around
Although a car is not necessary, as there are very good bus links to Swansea, Mumbles and Gower, we do however, recommend it. We are blessed with too many to mention breathtaking beaches, but some you might like to visit are Langland bay with its colourful beach huts, the dramatic Three cliffs, Oxwich bay and of course Rhossili beach, which has deservedly so, been named the best beach in the UK and the ninth most amazing beach in the world (Daily Mail/travel - Rhosilli). Car - Bus - Train If you choose to see more of this wonderful part of Wales, Pembrokeshire and Carmarthenshire lie to the west and the vibrant city of Cardiff to the east, while the rugged beauty of the Brecon Beacons await you in Mid Wales.
