    The cottage was immaculately clean and well equipped. The views were spectacular and in a handy location for travelling around north wales. Thank you.

    Thank you for your lovely comments and glad you enjoyed the view ! Also really pleased that Min y Don was spotless, we have moved to a new house keeper and great feedback for them. Hope you visit again. Property Owner

  • "The property was as expected the view of the marina was very nice the only problem was the broadband which was very slow and in desperate need of upgrades I ran a speed check and only got 4."

    9 mbs and took over 3 minutes for Netflix to open with constant interruptions while it was buffering.I would suggest upgrading to at least 76mds its only £24.00 from origin broadband.

    Thank you for your feedback and that the house and view was as you hoped. Apologies for the BT Broadband not performing as expected.we are already on the download of 35 mbps plus which when we renewed the contract this year was the best available at £37.99 a month. Sometimes there are issues on the marina with the whole BT connection. Property Owner

  • "We had a fantastic holiday in a lovely property with everything we needed."

    The view from the balcony is stunning. One day it was very stormy and raining all day, we watched the weather rolling in from inside the balcony patio doors feeling very cosy. We definitely hope to return.

    Thank you for your lovely feedback. Watching a storm coming up the Straits from Caernarfon is as you say a great event to see from inside rather than out! Property Owner

  • "Absolutely lovely property and a beautiful location!"

    The balcony and the sea view is incredible. The property was very well equipped with everything we needed for our week stay. The two things I would comment on are the VERY HOT water! The owners have put warning stickers by the taps but it must be at boiling point coming from the tap! I filled the bowl to wash up, went off to do something else, came back to it and my sons water bottle (regular drinks bottle from the high street) had totally melted and shrunk! Now that is scarily hot water in the tap. I thinks this is quite dangerous to be honest. Can the temperature not be adjusted on the boiler for safety? Also, we feel the property should have a food waste caddy as we only realised later on during our week that there was a food waste bin outside in the communal area but no food waste bin to collect it in inside the property. We had a fabulous week and would highly recommend this property. The welcome pack on arrival of a bottle of Prosecco and a Bara Brith cake and butter was very welcome after a long journey. Thank You

    Thank you for your lovely comments and very pleased you enjoyed your visit to Min Y Don and that view! We are replacing the bathroom and heating system at the end of September so that will fix the high temperature. Hope you visit again. Property Owner

  • "We enjoyed our stay at Min y Don very much."

    The cottage was clean, comfortable and in a superb location for the village but very quiet. The balcony was lovely and so sheltered. we loved the decor, the artwork and colour scheme gave a relaxed atmosphere and was perfect for a seaside location. We hope that the minor issues with the balcony door and the kettle will be sorted soon.

    Thank you for your lovely feedback and glad you enjoyed your stay. We have looked to capture a sea side feel to each room to enhance the wonderful view. We stayed the following week and locksmith has adjusted the balcony door and kettle fixed. Property Owner

  • "We had a wonderful fortnight at Min y Don in June (our second visit) enjoying the stunning views, relaxing surroundings and good facilities."

    We love the seaside theming of the rooms and relaxing on the decking with a G&T whilst watching the wading birds, sailing boats & views over to Anglesey. Our only disappointment was the shower, which we (and other guests) have reported. We reported the same problem last year too and is still the same. It quickly fills up the shower tray with water as you are showering because the drain is blocked - probably with hair etc. Please can you have a drainage engineer out to get it cleared so that everything at Min y Don is tip top again. Everything else was fabulous. Many thanks Annie & Gary

  • "The best thing about this accommodation is the awesome view over the Menai, from the first floor balcony and it was reasonably comfortable to stay there."

    The location is a beautiful place to stay but unfortunately there are some negatives to mention. The ground floor patio was is a very poor state and not usable. The entire place was ‘tired’ and in need of a freshen up. It needed a really good cleaning throughout, particularly the grout between the tiles in the shower cubicle as it was black. None of the windows have been cleaned in a long time and the main patio doors were very hard to slide open and close. Finally, the symbols on the cooker controls were worn out, so it was hard to tell what the settings were. So all in all, a thorough cleaning and a bit of a re-furb would turn Min Y Don into a very nice place to stay.

  • "Great property with amazing sea views."

    Unexpected welcome pack was a nice gesture. We have stayed previously (three times) at another property in this row. That property has now outpriced itself and necessitated lugging suitcases up three flights of stairs, so it was nice here that the bedrooms were on the ground floor. The weather was sunny all week, so we made good use of the balcony and visited many places (some new to us) in the area. Would have liked to book a second visit later in the year, but unsurprisingly it is booked up!

  • "Min-y-Don is the most beautiful place to stay."

    On the edge of the Menai Straits with a spacious balcony facing the most fantastic view. A really wonderful place for ornithologists with all sorts of sea birds and even the odd seal, and pheasants on the lawns! to view with the binoculars at the property. Very comfortable beds! Cool bedrooms downstairs on a hot day and the spacious open plan lounge, kitchen, diner upstairs with patio doors to the balcony . Spotlessly clean. Ideally placed for Anglesey, Snowdonia, North Wales coast. In the centre of Anglesey is Llangefni and its Gallery (Art by C F Tunnicliffe, the bird artist who had lived at Malltraeth , and that’s worth a visit too! Portmadoc, Portmerion , Beddgellert , Llanfairfechan etc.etc. Highly recommended!

  • "The property is in desperate need of a makeover."

    It felt as if we couldn't touch anything without it breaking. The bed linen was very poor, it didn't fit the bed ending up in a knot in the centre of the bed. There was only half a toilet roll. (We bought more). The balcony furniture included a very rusty table. The view from the balcony is fabulous but in my view that's all it's got. We booked for a week and left two days early. Disappointed and would not recommend this property.

    Thank you for your comments, feedback is always welcome and helpful in maintaining and improving standards. The house was redecorated in March this year (hall, stairs and landing as well as the living area, kitchen and dining upstairs- a lovely blue feature wall and white elsewhere to match the seaside feel). New couches last year, new table on the balcony (we did leave the old one as well, a little ‘shabby chic’ we know) but thought it might be useful as an extra table to place a gin and tonic while enjoying the sunset. The balcony glass was updated last year to ensure the view from the lounge was seamless. The bed linen is standard size and the cleaning / maintenance company we use did confirm to us that they fit the duvets (new this July) and pillows. We are unsure what is to touch that is breakable; there are no fiddly ornaments, the kettle and toaster are solid (and new), the table and chairs are wood and not at all flimsy and bedroom furniture is less than two years old. We are very pleased you enjoyed the million dollar view of the straits, but somewhat surprised with the feedback - photos of the property were taken after the decorating was done in March - so the house is exactly as described.

  • "Thank you to the owners for their thoughtfulness in providing a very comfortable and well equipped holiday home in a magnificent location which we enjoyed in part, mostly as the good weather allowed us to be outdoors on the sun terrace for some of the time."

    We had looked forward to a complete week of unwinding and relaxation as your listing promised. This would have been possible if the house had been clean and some necessary maintenance carried out. We make the following comments in the hope that the cleaning & maintenance company will provide good service to future tenants. On arrival we found the odour from the bathroom overpowering & disconcerting. We did our best with bleach to clean the filthy drain at the back of the washbasin, shower drain and toilet, which significantly improved the situation, but recommend the bathroom drainage be investigated. The interior windows and mirrors were quite unclean, & interior had not been dusted. Exterior windows of the downstairs bedroom were filthy with green algae round the edges demonstrating they had not been cleaned for some considerable time. I cleaned them to allow my elderly mother who was sleeping in this bedroom to enjoy the view. The oven needs a deep clean - when you use it you get all the greasy smell from previous usage in the lovely open plan living space upstairs. Curtain track on dining room window is falling off the wall - needs re-fixing - and curtain rehanging Twin bedroom curtains need rehanging. With attention to these points the house will be magnificent. Thank you.

    Thank you for your feedback and I am sorry you were disappointed on this occasion . The Owners do have a regular window cleaner in addition to a cleaning and maintenance company, whose contact details are at the property. They will ensure that any issues are checked and remedied so that all guests have a pleasant and enjoyable stay.” Property Owner
