  • "Fantastic property!"

    1 of the best we’ve ever stayed at. The views were stunning and location perfect for exploring the area. We used it as a base for heading to Anglesey for Porth Wen brickworks and swimming, walking the coast path, heading to Llanberris to swim at Padarn, Llandudno for the whisky distillery and chocolate experience, Bangor and Caernarfon. The property had everything you could need and more. Spotlessly clean, well equipped and furnished. There was 6 of us staying; all adults but there was tons of space and privacy so we weren’t on top of each other. Lots of storage and provisions provided - fun evenings playing Cluedo and watching the sunset. We had a wonderful and relaxing stay.

  • "We had a lovely week at The Summerhouse."

    The weather was glorious,the views from the lounge terrace/balcony were beautiful.Just to sit and watch the boats/paddle boarders and wildlife was really quite something.The cottage had everything we needed.The kitchen was modern and well equipped with easily understood appliances ( instructions were in the easy read info the owners had left for guests ). There were only the 2 of us but to have 2 bathrooms was great.The information was correct the spiral staircase would have been difficult for some people but if you are careful it is easy enough. The cottage was spotless and the welcome pack was really appreciated.We would definitely book again and stay in such a great holiday home.

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed staying at The Summerhouse, it’s a lovely house, clean, well equipped with plenty of a character."

    There was a much appreciated welcome pack when we arrived. The views from the balcony over the Menai Strait are stunning in all weathers. Sitting out in the evening sun was amazing. Y FelinHeli is a lovely fishing village with some great places to eat and it’s a fantastic location for exploring Anglesey and North Wales. We would definitely stay here again.

    The star of the show however is the balcony. You’ll spend hours there gazing out at the wonderful view.

  • "Lovely cottage, spotless and very comfortable with amazing views of the Menai Straits."

    The location is quiet and peaceful, with a cafe, tapas restaurant and pub restaurant and a pretty marina close by. Good base for exploring North Wales and the coastal path. Even saw seals, cormorants and a heron from the balcony! Would love to make a return trip sometime.

    The view from the balcony was fantastic overlooking the menai straights and the house was very well situated for all the wonderful sights of North Wales. Also the welcome pack was very much appreciated, thank you for a lovely week.

  • "The holiday was very enjoyable, Summerhouse is an excellent position with unrivalled views of Menai Straits and the many sea birds on view are fabulous."

    The house itself is very clean, comfortable and well equipped. I would recommend Summerhouse to anyone who wants a quiet relaxing break away from it all, whilst many excellent day trips are possible a short drive away. We will happily return at some time soon.

  • "We had an outstanding stay at the property with no issues whatsoever."

    My only recommendation is to supply a hair dryer - if there was one in the house, we couldn't find it. Thank you for having us!

    The proximity and views of the straits from the deck and the upstairs bedroom as the tides ebbed and flowed each day was fantastic. We even saw seals swimming by. A lovely property in a stunning location.

    The beds were really comfortable and the views from the rooms amazing. The welcome pack was much appreciated. The place was well equipped, the only thing missing was a vacuum cleaner to pick up any bits on the carpets. It was also convenient for the mountains and the seaside.

  • "Excellent location and a property with everything we wanted."

    The view is outstanding and the open plan nature of the first floor gave a sense of space. It was a very comfortable place and had been well thought out. It was an excellent base for exploring the local area. Trying to fit the key in the Key Safe was a challenge; there is obviously a knack that I did not have. That being the only issue, we were really pleased to have found this property. Would certainly recommend.

    Egg cups and a teapot would be a useful addition and it was a disappointment that the great outside decking could not be used for a BBQ.
