Marketing - Tourism & Travel / Holiday accommodation brochure
|German term or phrase: kleiner Meerblick|
|This brochure advertising holiday appartments/houses lists some properties as having a "Meeresblick", a sea view and some as having a "kleiner Meeresblick". Does anyone know a neat way of translating this? Small sea vciew, partial sea view or limited sea view might put potential customers off!|
|partial sea view|
Seems to be the standard phrase.
Not putting potential customers off is one thing, protecting your own client (the owner of the holiday appartments) from being sued by disappointed vacationers is another.
Here are some examples:
":: Partial Seaview King || double occupancy, partial seaview king
These cabañas are all located on the higher part of Copal, with a partial sea view. There are cabanas and foliage between these cabanas and the sea, but each one has its own partial view of the sea. They have one king size bed and cement floors. These cabañas are perfect for couples seeking a relaxing, romantic vacation."
"Premier Chalet: Premier Chalet on land with partial sea view Premier Chalet on land with partial sea view 56 sq m newly builts with partial sea view. All units come with private balcony, separate standing shower and bathtub. Kingsize bed or twin bed."
"Blue Dolphin (Villa 1)
Partial Sea View. King bed plus a twin bed. This room is spacious yet feels warm and cozy. Large walk-in closet. Very private patio for morning coffee. One king, one twin. Ground floor Villa 1. Extra twin may be added by booking one additional adult."

|kleiner Meeresblick |
glimpse of the sea
less direct and therefore may put one off less. If the prices are modest, the expectations may also be!
