It's easy to see why the Seahorse Penthouse was awarded a five-star gold rating. Offering the perfect place to relax and indulge, the apartment was designed to take advantage of its unrivalled location. Panoramic views over the sea and Westward Ho!'s two-mile sandy beach can be enjoyed from every window and are especially magnificent from the rooftop garden. Set at the top of the luxurious Latitude 51 development, the garden is adorned with over-sized super comfy bean bags, a barbecue and plenty of space to lounge around in the sun. Here, you can sink into the hot tub with a chilled glass of wine and watch the world go by.
If you're looking for a new way to relax, our recommended local therapists offer meditation, yoga or spa treatment sessions to enjoy on the roof. After all, isn't that what luxury holidays are for? At night, sit out among the stars and scan the night skies with the telescope.
The opulent apartment sleeps four, with two double en-suite bedrooms and a huge open-plan living space. Step out onto the balcony to enjoy breakfast and take in the sea views. For quiet evenings in, take advantage of the 50-inch Panasonic 3D TV and full Sky TV package.
The Seahorse Penthouse is perfect for beach-lovers. Wake up and check the surf before jumping in to catch a few waves. There's plenty of room for your surfboards at the apartment. Westward Ho! is a hotspot for surfers, but if you didn't bring your board, don't worry. You can hire a board and wetsuit from the local surf school and if you want to get more confident in the waves, you can book a lesson.
Families will love spending days at the beach, building sandcastles and lounging around in the sunshine, while couples can escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life. On your luxury holiday by the sea, there's no need to venture out too far to enjoy what the area has to offer. Westward Ho! is famous for its first-class restaurants, serving a range of cuisine from authentic Moroccan and Italian fare to delicious freshly-caught seafood.
The Seahorse Penthouse offers the ultimate in luxury seaside holidays. If you need any help planning your break or anything at all during your stay, just get in touch with our friendly team.
