  • "We were very excited as it was our first air bnb we loved the flat but 2 inches of hot water and not enough heating, bath panel falling off, shower control coming out, not to mention door handle loose on front door on arrival."

    I will be writing a letter of complaint demanding compensation for a cold, lack of washing facilities and downright disappointing holiday! I have emailed you already but to no avail so an official letter will follow.

  • "Our stay at The Shuggies was great."

    The sea view is superb from the windows and a joy to wake up to each morning. The property is very well located and it only takes a 3 minute walk to be by the beach. The beds and sofa were very comfy and the apartment really well equipped. We would definitely recommend to others. Mrs Lyon

  • "This accommodation is well equipped and comfortable."

    It’s perfectly placed for the beach just at the bottom of the road and there are really good amenities at the top of the bank. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this apartment to anyone and we love that it’s dog friendly.

  • "Great directions so very easy to find."

    A fabulous location with a great sea view to wake up to! The apartment was very clean on arrival & extremely well equipped. The only downside was a shortage of hot water at the end of the day but would still definitely stay again

  • "We had a fantastic family holiday at the Shuggies, it was even better than described."

    In a fantastic location, 2 minutes from the beach and fabulous sea views from the balcony. The apartment was spacious, very well equipped and homely. Looking forward to going back there again, I wouldn’t consider anywhere else to stay in Benllech!

  • "First time booking with Sykes cottages and found there to be good choice of properties, easy to use website and clear email confirmation and key collection details etc."

    We were both very happy with our apartment. It was clean, spacious and had a great sea view. We were just disappointed not to be able to make much use of the lovely balcony overlooking the sea. Will definitely be back to Benllech and hopefully this apartment.

  • "We have been here before but not for a couple of yrs."

    Whilst the location is fantastic we did feel the apartment is looking quite tired now and in need of a face lift. The furniture has seen better days as has the flooring in the living area and the bedroom carpet. The grouting in the bathroom is grubby and missing in places and the bath panel has popped off at one side. The windows clearly hadn't been cleaned inside since the last occupants as there were children's fingermarks all over the lounge and the main bedroom windows. It could do with a better TV and more comfortable chairs on the balcony. Whilst we enjoyed our stay it was disappointing that it hasn't been given the care such nice apartment deserves. A little pricey now given the standard. We love Benllech and will be back but probably not to The Shuggies unless its updated.

  • "Shuggies is a modern spacious apartment with great views across the bay, it has all the facilities we required for a holiday."

    Due to the light colour of the bedroom carpets there were a few marks, (it was clean) perhaps a consideration to remove the carpet or go for a dark colour. Benllech has a wonderfully large beach with numerous eating places, however I was a bit disappointed that there were no holiday/tourists shops that sold craft/gift items, one small shop on the beach front sold buckets and spades etc. I would recommend Shuggies to friends and family, the second bedroom is big enough for adults to share its not just for children.

  • "The apartment itself is well situated and furniture is comfortable."

    It was a lovely thought having the fruit bread left for us there were a few things that unfortunately let it down. The first night we blew every fuse using the toaster. We let the housekeeper know by calling and heard nothing else all week leaving us with no toaster. The kitchen was unclean the oven filthy and all work surfaces had thick dust at the back and under cannisters and cutlery needing cleaning with brillo pads. Under the furniture it had gone so long without cleaning it had stale biscuits underneath and thick grime. The bathroom had no window or working extractor fan. The main double bed had some nasty stains too so I slept on the other side. It is a shame once it was clean it was lovely but we shouldn't have to do this for the monies paid. We left it in far better state than found it.... We have enjoyed our holiday and loved Angelsey hope to book again with Sykes Cottages as overall the support and service you offer is great xx

  • "The Shuggies is in need of an up date, although quite clean the carpets need a shampoo clean and the window by the balcony door when shut lets enough wind in to put up a kite and the wind whistles and screams through the window when closed , the rubbers just need replacing and the entry door does not shut right you can see daylight through the gap in the door, there was no toilet paper or hand wash which are basics that we have always had at other holiday homes , on a good note the view from the balcony is good and the location to the beach is good, not much else i'm afraid."

    Many thanks for your feedback. The owner has visited the property and although they did not find the carpets in a poor condition they have conducted the annual clean of the carpets for the start of the season. The property does overlook the sea and therefore can be windy. The windows and doors have now been checked for any possible draughts. The owner takes constructive comments seriously and if there are any issues during a stay the guest has a contact number for assistance. You can see a large number of very positive feedback below.

  • "The place could do with a more thorough cleaning, we found dust in multiple places."

    The shower could not regulate between hot and cold and we were unable to have shower when we wanted one. The vacuum cleaner provided was very poor so I had to go and buy a brush to clean. It said there was toilet roll included but there was not even a quarter roll left and we had to go the day we arrived to buy some more. I found paint and plaster peeling off in certain places such as the toilet seat, the master bedroom on the walls and the ceiling and in the main living room on the ceiling. The towels and bedding could do with replacing, as I found holes in my towel, and the bedding was tired and well used. I was disappointed that the apartment was not of the quality I imagined for what was paid. The view from the apartment was brilliant and the rooms were very comfortable and had plenty of storage space to meet our needs. The kitchen had enough equipment and cutlery for our stay, and was clean and tidy on our arrival. The living room area was comfortable and once we managed to get a hang of the TV we had nice evenings relaxing there.The area was very nice and we often visited the beach and the cafe just down the road, both of which were great. The people we met were all very friendly too.

    The inside of the cooker hadn't been cleaned, the freezer door was missing so that inevitably anything we put in the freezer compartment started to defrost, the tap in the bathroom was difficult to move (this had been mentioned by someone before us), the carpets in the bedrooms were dirty and should have been cleaned, and the handle on the front door came off when we tried to close it. We stayed in the next door apartment last year and we were very happy with it.

  • "An absolutely beautiful flat in an amazing and ideally situated location."

    The flat was larger than I expected based upon the photographs. It was spotlessly clean and very well equipped. The views from all the windows and from the balcony was amazing. We loved it. The only one little niggle I had was that the beds could really do with replacing. This was noted in the visitors book in many entries so I am not on my own in thinking this. The frame on the bed in the double bedroom was broken, leading to quite an uncomfortable sleep. One of the frames in the beds in the twin bedroom was also broken. There were also only thick quilts and I feel that these should be swapped for cooler, thinner, summer quilts in the summer months (yes, it does get hot in Wales, despite what we're all lead to believe). These are only minor niggles and did not in any way spoil our holiday, nor would they prevent us from re-booking the Shuggies should we be out that way again, but these changes would make us lift our rating of 9/10 to a perfect 10.

The property

A delightful, well-presented first floor apartment in the ever-popular seaside town of Benllech on Anglesey.

This attractive apartment is ideal for family holidays as it is located on a quiet road just off the beachfront.

This stylish, modern apartment offers open plan living with a fully-fitted, luxury kitchen with granite worktops and integrated appliances, an intimate dining area for candlelit meals and a comfy sitting room looking out over the balcony to the Irish Sea.

There are two well-appointed bedrooms, with a twin bedroom, along with a master bedroom which benefits from sea views from full-length windows, whilst the family bathroom has a superior finish with a contemporary raised, round sink and bath with shower over.

The balcony, with glass balustrade, and far-reaching sea views, is a relaxing area to enjoy a morning coffee with newspapers or a gin and tonic, after an energetic day on the beach or walking a section of the Anglesey Coastal Path.

Benllech itself has so much to offer you will not need to get in your car until it’s time to bid a sad farewell to a memorable seaside family holiday at this lovely beach apartment.

Take a walk from the apartment along the cliffs to Red Wharf Bay to sample a refreshing drink in the local tavern.

Whilst the rural setting offers peace and easy access to the coast, there is the rest of rural Anglesey to explore and, of course, the spectacular mountains of Snowdonia.

A wonderful, coastal holiday property.
