  • "Beacon Cottage is amazing, the position overlooking the sea is breathtaking."

    The facilities at the cottage make it truly home from home. Nina the owner is extremely helpful.

    Thank you - you were both extremely helpful as guests! It makes me happy when the cottage suits guest’s requirements and they have a good holiday and hopefully return home rested and relaxed. I find watching the sea from the comfort of the cottage is very calming - a healthy contrast to the hurly burly of everyday lives. Property Owner

  • "We love Beacon cottage!"

    The Perfect location for a relaxing holiday by the sea. The views have to be some of the best on the island. Many thanks for another wonderful holiday

    Many thanks for your feedback - it’s much appreciated. Yes the views are wonderful - they are what persuaded me to buy the cottage (25 years ago now ) despite it being in a poor state of repair and empty for 18 months. Nobody wanted it - or the work involved but I fell in love with it once I went upstairs and saw the views. Property Owner

  • "This holiday house has every home from home comfort and more ."

    Nina was so helpful with any questions we had . The location is stunning. We absolutely loved our stay at Beacon Cottage

    Thank you for the feedback - I’m so glad you enjoyed your stay and the cottage suited your needs. Renovating the cottage has been a labour of love ( sometimes blood ,sweat and tears ! ). It’s lovely that I can share it with guests and uplifting to be told they have enjoyed their stay and appreciated the cottage. Property Owner

  • "We had a really enjoyable stay, the cottage had everything we needed and more!"

    The views and location are second to none! The facilities had so much more too with access to additional towels and bedding etc if needed. The little touches such as electric blankets and tumble dryer made such a difference with children. The property was child friendly with access to baby gates and high chair. The communication was fantastic too. Overall I would highly recommend this cottage! We will be back!

    Many thanks for your feedback- I’m pleased you found the cottage suited your needs. Also thanks for securing things that had blown loose during the gales plus keeping in touch re the damage - it’s really helpful as I was able to contact tradesmen for repairs straight away (instead of waiting until my monthly maintenance visit when I then find the damage and am even further down their list for repairs).

  • "Great property, photos don’t do it justice."

    Comms with owner great, so helpful & knowledgeable. Highly recommend & will go back in a heartbeat. Christmas was a bit weird as so many places closed but White Eagle & The Shed such great places for food.

    Thank you for your generous feedback, it is much appreciated. You were very helpful over the cooker door problem - British Gas Homecare no longer live up to their advertised promises of immediate or next day assistance which makes dealing with any problem extra stressful for cottage owners AND guests.Thank you again for your understanding.

    I’m so glad you enjoyed your week at the cottage especially after a very long journey AND driving through Storm Arwen. Your checking round for storm damage the next morning and texting details was very helpful and much appreciated.Sincere thanks for your review. I think seeing the waves crashing on the rocks to the N,W and E made for a memorable experience. Property Owner

  • "Lovely cottage on the coastal path with beautiful and outstanding views ."

    It was a perfect place for our family and we can’t wait to book again for next year

    Thank you for your feedback, it was especially appreciated as the hours before you arrived four of us were frantically dealing with problems - hoping to be completed by 16.00! You were most helpful staying at the cottage to enable the Homecare engineer to fix the outside lights. They don’t work on a Saturday when my housekeeper would be there so it was a worry.

  • "We have stayed in the cottage four years ago and Cemaes Bay 5 times over the last few years."

    We loved it. Nina the owner has been made aware that the outside lights to the side door were not working. This didn’t prevent us having a fabulous time, we just couldn’t side out after dark since there was little lighting. We would definitely recommend the cottage and are hoping to book again soon. Fabulous location.

    My contract with British Gas Homecare would have sorted the lighting problem the next day but it does entail a guest remaining in the property for morning or afternoon time slots - I realise this can disrupt holiday plans but though it was offered to the guests it was not not taken up.

    Very comfortable beds and also the sofas in the lounge. The house was recommended to us by a friend and we will certainly pass on the recommendation to anyone who would like a holiday in North Wales.

    Many thanks for your positive feedback it is greatly appreciated and makes up for the occasional negative ones. Property Owner

    The views were amazing with the upside down lay out taking advantage of them. There was plenty of space and far more cooking utensils and crockery than us usually provided. Lots of personal touches.

  • "This cottage is wonderfully situated right on the cliff-top, with amazing views across the bay and out to sea, and is EXCEPTIONALLY presented."

    So much is provided, from lovely soft towels, to loads of crockery, cutlery and glassware, big oven and grill with lots of pots and pans, spotlessly clean, and with some really lovely finishing touches everywhere. All the rooms are large and with plenty of wardrobe and drawer space. The lounge is very comfortable, and there is a huge selection of books, CDs and DVDs too. Internet is accessible and a reasonable speed. It is only a short walk down to the village (the butcher’s meat is fantastic quality), and the coastal path runs right outside the cottage. We would definitely recommend this place.

    The cottage was equipped with everything you could need during your stay and more. The cottage was really clean and comfortable, with plenty of room for everyone. The cottage was decorated beautifully and felt welcoming. The cottage garden is beautiful and had plenty of seating for us all. The views from nearly every window were amazing and we spent many hours just admiring the views. The sunsets in particular were beautiful. The surrounding area is really interesting, with great coastal walks directly from the cottage, and we found little coves with perfect beaches to explore. We found local pubs which served great food. The butchers in the village is also worth a visit. Would definitely recommend this cottage.
