  • "Our first night was spoiled by a smoke alarm that kept going off."

    I reported this to the telephone number I’d been give. I was told she’d contact the owner. The alarm was far too high for us to reach and there was no step ladder. Eventually, the answer came back we should go to the neighbouring property and borrow their « ladder » and remove the battery. Fortunately the neighbours were home but they had no ladder, only a thing with two steps on it. My 6 ft 4 in husband was still nowhere near reaching the offending alarm. I texted the mobile number saying I expected someone first thing next day to sort out this problem. Next morning Zest sent out two young women: they did not know how to open the alarm, had no ladder and when they did eventually open the thing had brought the wrong batteries! « Incompetence » hardly covers it. They reached the alarm by placing a dining room chair precariously on top of an arm chair and standing on top of it. They asked if they could leave the chairs thus placed right in front of the bedroom door at the top of the stairs and come back later. They did not come back later but I did get a phone call to say they were at the door and no one was answering. What’s more, they had called earlier and no one had answered! On this second visit, when I got the phone call, we were out and for the first I have no idea but in any case the door bell didn’t work so that would partly explain the lack of response. Secondly, of course, THIS WAS A HOLIDAY and we were there to explore the area not hang all day about because of faulty equipment The chairs remained in their dangerous position until we left. On the plus side, this is a beautiful apartment and apart from a disturbed first night and irritating second day we liked it very much.

  • "We really enjoyed our stay."

    The apartment was very clean and spacious with everything you could possibly need. My son enjoyed ‘chilling’ in the den and we had lots of fun playing table football. A good base for exploring Anglesey.

  • "A beautiful apartment in a beautiful location."

    Very clean and spacious, with a lot of thought put into it. Our daughter especially loved the 'den' area. Plenty to do in the area and we definitely need another visit to fit in everywhere we wanted to go to.

The property

Menai Bridge 2.5 miles.

Tucked away near the coast on the outskirts of Glyngarth near Menai Bridge on the Isle of Anglesey is On the Straits.

This luxurious, ground-floor duplex apartment benefits from a unique location in a period manor house, two beautiful king-size bedrooms with en-suite shower rooms, and a private patio with furniture, perfect for couples, families and friends alike.

After exploring the attractions on the surrounding coast, enter into this stunning abode and help prepare a delicious meal in the fully-equipped kitchen that can be enjoyed at the dining table.

Later, step outside to the private patio to soak up the last of the sun or snuggle up on the corner sofa in front of the Smart TV, while the kids take advantage of the den at the top of the spiral stairs which houses a variety of board games.

When sleep calls, catch your rest in either the ground-floor king-size or head to the first floor for the second king-size; both rooms are furnished with plenty of storage and sleek en-suite shower rooms.

On the Straits is ideally located near local stores to help ease your self-catered stay and pubs such as The Gazelle Hotel which serves traditional pub food, a great place to treat your loved ones.

Follow the coast to Beaumaris to spend sunny days upon its shores and stroll along its seafront or pier for spectacular views across the Menai Strait.

The town is home to an impressive 13th century castle surrounded by a moat that runs guided tours and Beaumaris Gaol and Court which showcases original cells and artefacts.

Anglesey boasts an array of attractions including Plas Cadnant Hidden Gardens, Pili Palas Nature World and Anglesey Sea Zoo; there is truly something for everyone!

Cross the bridge into mainland Wales to explore the wonders of Snowdonia National Park which is filled to the brim with walks, trails and cycling opportunities which reward visitors with breath-taking views across Wales.
