About George

We are a local family that has lived in Broad Haven for over 30 years.

We love the clean sandy beaches that Pembrokeshire has to offer as well as the country side walks with the dog.

Our family is well known in the community with Father and son on local coastguard and RNLI crews.

George purchased this cottage in 2012

Why George chose St Brides Bay, St Davids & The West Coast

Vilu Reef is in a perfect setting, just on the edge of the village of Broad Haven. Its close enough but far enough away if you fancy just a quiet day relaxing in the sunshine.

Vilu Reef is set in a quiet location with rolling fields to one side and trees to another . There is a special feeling to the surroundings.

What makes this cottage unique

There are outstanding sea views from the living area.


Exceptional! 5/5 -

Very cosy and we'll equipped

  • 5 of 5

George was extremely helpful during the booking process and all went smoothly including finding the property.

Vilu Reef is extremely well equipped including those annoying things like washing up liquid and bin bags were provided.

A nice touch were the mince pies, milk and tea bags too..

It easily deserved the 5 stars.

There was a nice view of the sea from the lounge window.

The village shop is only a short walk away as are the 2 village pubs.

The Galleon pub is now under refurbishment so cannot comment but it was more of a traditional pub that the others in Broad and Little Haven.

The Ocean Bar and Cafe was always vertical friendly. The food here was always good quality and hot. Not like the Castle in Little Haven where the food is served on cold plates.

Little Haven is a short walk away.

Fabulous little find!

  • 5 of 5

Booked this property for my 'senior' parents who are quite fussy. From the outset the owners could not have been more helpful - answering all my questions and supplying helpful additional info (right down to local bus timetables - to help with my mom's mobility issues). My parents were impressed with the very high standards of decor, cleanliness and comfort, not to mention the fabulous setting. They even found the 'upside-down' layout very practical and beneficial. Unfortunately they had to cut their stay short due to unforseen circumstances which again the owners were very gracious about and even contacted me to check my mom & dad had got home safely. Highly recommended A*

A modern 'upsidedown', cottage well fitted out and very convenient for the local beaches

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was very nice and well fitted out. It was convenient for local beaches as well as other places of historical interest.

The listing was accurate as were the photos. It was clean and well maintained and the owner provided very good customer service,

We would recommend this to another couple..

We enjoyed the local beach as well as Marloes Sands and Little Haven.

The Ocean Restaurant is recommended for good food and service.

Porthgain and St. Davids are well worth a visit as well as Pembroke Castle,

Wonderful house and views

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at Vilu Reef. The cottage is beautifully laid out and everything is finished to a very high standard. The owners were very helpful and friendly and we very much enjoyed the wine and welsh cakes they kindly left for us. We loved the views of the sunset from the sitting room and thoroughly enjoyed exploring the beautiful Welsh coastline.
