  • "What a location!"

    We loved the house situated right on the water front and the views were second to none. We were able to use our paddle boards straight from the house and swim in the sea. The house was perfect for our large family and the living spaces big enough for us all. The number of rooms and bathrooms made our stay extra comfortable and the kitchen was well equipped. The local town of Valley has a few convenience stores and the Sea Shanty Cafe in Trearddur Bay is a must for excellent food in its unique nautical themed restaurant. We will definitely be staying at Glanrhyd Isaf again!

  • "We found the property spacious and comfortable with fantastic views and a good location."

    The walks straight from the property were enjoyed by us all.Plenty of kitchen facilities and utensils and adequate bathrooms etc. A very good choice for 10 of us plus two dogs.

  • "We couldn’t recommend this place highly enough."

    A fantastically appointed house in a unbelievably beautiful setting. It’s slightly out of the way, yes but the surrounding is 100% worth it. As a family of 10 with 2 dogs we found the house was cosy enough but with plenty of space for us all. It has everything you need to hunker down for a weeks peace.

  • "We enjoyed our stay and loved the location and views and the house was very spacious."

    On the flip side, there was no hairdryer, no shaver points and the tv in the bedroom didn’t work. Games were past their sell by date! Having to buy binliners as only one was provided and dishwasher tablets seems ungenerous in a home of this price and compares unfavourably with other houses we have rented. These are small details, easily remedied as was the pack of 6 Welsh cakes to welcome 10 people. The didn’t spoil our holiday but we would choose somewhere else next time.

    Thank you for your recent feedback. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay at our property. We do appreciate your comments and take them seriously. We will review them all in turn. I have recently purchased more games for the property to replace the existing ones. Many thanks Jo Property Owner

  • "I left some notes in the Housekeeping Book regarding doors that don't close and /or lock and a couple of light bulbs that need replacing plus the lack of general instructions ."

    Most property we have rented has had a folder with general details of the facilities e,g, Cooker, Washing Machine etc etc. Also general information of the area & restaurants/take-aways ( I left a couple) and there were no specific instructions left regarding how to leave the bedding etc so we left it in situ. The house was very spacious and in a quiet location but the beach area was a good deal muddier than I anticipated from the catalogue images, apart from that we all enjoyed the stay

    Thank you for your feedback. We do appreciate it so that we can provide the best possible experience for our guests staying in our holiday home. As part of our Covid policy we have removed the Welcome Folder from the property as they are handled by all our guests. When guests book the property we stipulate this and an electronic version is emailed out with all the useful information. We are hoping to bring the paper version of this back to the property in the coming months. We have replaced any lighbulbs so thank you for that feedback. Best wishes Jo Property Owner

    It helped that we enjoyed some fantastic weather during our weekend stay! The house was perfect for our celebrations, very clean and comfortable, kitchen is great for catering large numbers. Really cannot praise it enough, nothing negative to say whatsoever and would consider for the next family gathering.

  • "Beautiful house in a beautiful spot amazing views ,we were celebrating a special anniversary and wanted a house that would suit for our children ,grandchildren and great grandchild 14 of us in all ."

    This was the perfect place ,and when we went through to the garage there was a table tennis set which was a total surprise the adults and children had great fun with it . It was amazing and we would definitely go back ,the only reason we did not score a 10 was that unfortunately the dish washer did not clean the dishes and we had to re do them in the sink ,which was a bit of a pain as you can imagine when there are so many people ,but apart from that fantastic .

    Thank you so much for your feedback. We really appreciate it so that we can offer our guests the best possible experience at our property. I'm so glad you enjoyed your family holiday across the generations celebrating a special anniversary. I'm so sorry that the dishwasher was not cleaning sufficiently. We leave out rinse aid and salt in the cupboard under the sink for guests to use (the cleaner also tops it up) and we have given the machine a thorough clean so it's in full working order. We hope to welcome you back soon. Many thanks, Jo Property Owner

  • "What a wonderful property!"

    ! We had 13 people + 2 dogs and the property was spacious and with the amount of bathrooms made life so much easier in the mornings. It’s situated literally on the beach so the dogs had plenty of space to enjoy themselves without worry. If you follow the instructions as per the email and not your Sat Nav then it’s easy to find. Will definitely be coming back soon :-)

    The sideboard in the lounge was dusty. There were dirt marks like paw prints on the lounge on the mat

    "Firstly, thank you for your review. We take all reviews seriously and want our guests to have the best possible experience. Apologies that you did not feel the cleaning was up to standard in the sitting room. I have immediately shared your feedback with our cleaner. We will ensure that this does not happen moving forward.

  • "We had a lovely family stay, 10 adults and 3 children, plenty of room for us all to relax, chill, play games."

    Bit disappointed that there was no recycling, and all rubbish went into a general skip, but I guess that is the councils responsibility to collect/arrange. I think the travelling instructions could include a small map to be a little clearer.

    "Thank you for your review. We take all reviews seriously and want our guests to have the best possible experience. For information purposes the waste that is collected from our house is sorted into recycling at the waste site itself. Hopefully this reassures future guests as we do take being environmentally responsible seriously and always want to do what we can. Thank you also for the feedback about directions and a possible map. We will look into this. Many thanks" Property Owner

  • "Beautiful house set in a tranquil location next to the water."

    Perfect setting for a large family get together. We visited for my husbands special birthday along with all the children, grandchildren, my parents and the dogs. We couldn't have asked for a better space for everyone to be together in. The property is spacious and we never felt on top of each other. The only downside for us was there isn't an area of the garden which is enclosed like the property next door where you can let your dogs out (we have Jack Russell terriers that can't be let loose or out of sight). We all loved watching the planes from RAF Valley nearby. We would definately return if we wanted to take a holiday with the family again.

  • "I booked the cottage for a family celebration my father in laws 80th birthday."

    The description and photos did not do the property justice. Glanrhyd Isaf is a hidden gem, the decor was beautifully done and very comfortable and the views were amazing. The cottage is well equipped from cutlery to pots and pans varying in sizes. I was able to cook a roast beef dinner with all the trimmings for 14 with ease. The only fault was there was no wardrobe in the first double bedroom on the first floor, we enjoy cooking outside and there was no bbq listed so we took our own. I would definitely book again.

  • "A couple of things, The access road to the property is really bad and I can say there is no road to this place which becomes very difficult to reach and it's very foul-smelling which puts off the visitors who arrive using the road to the property."

    The beds provided were not comfortable and they were making creaking sounds. The mattresses provided can be of superior quality. The price paid in relation to the other properties listed in the same area was very expensive during this period. The pictures provided on the website are misleading as there is no good access to the backwaters. Thanks

    Lazy days spent having family time in a perfect setting, the house is beautiful and the standard is excellent. A treasure in the Welsh Valleys, the younger ones enjoyed exploring and some enjoyed walks on the beach with dogs, while some of us just spent time relaxing. Lots of lovely memories made, having meals around the family dining table and drinks and musics in the evening, shopping at local spar and a visit to the air base to watch the planes. All in all money well spend, no disappointed guests and a bit of excitement when the tide came in, lovely place. Thank you!

  • "I honestly can’t say enough about this property!"

    We looked high and low for the perfect place to celebrate my Dads 70th Birthday. As a family of 13 (plus 2 dogs) we were looking for somewhere big enough for us all to stay together for a long weekend. Enough bedrooms and general space so we weren’t on top of each other, and a large enough kitchen/dining area to seat us all together for big family meals. We also wanted the place to be private enough for us to feel away from the hustle and bustle of life. This house far exceeded what we were expecting!! We followed the directions to the letter which got us right to the door (without this we would not have found it!) The house is set in the most beautiful location with sea views and surrounded by fields on one side and rocky coves on the other. There is a huge secured garden which was brilliant for letting the dogs off lead. The views when the sun was going down were just beautiful. (We stayed in early March, I imagine summer is something else!) Inside the house itself was also way above our expectations. It’s HUGE! The photos on the website honestly don’t do this house justice. It is much bigger in real life. The thought that has gone into renting this property for family breaks did not go unnoticed. Every room was clean and welcoming. There was literally EVERYTHING we needed. Every cooking utensil, cutlery, crockery, glasses etc you could think of. Dining table perfect to sit 14 people. The lounge had plenty of space and enough comfy sofas to seat us all together. We took our projector and had a family film night! In the cupboards there is a large selection of games, quizzes, cards etc. There is a log burner which we lit on the first night but the heating was enough thereafter. There are 7 comfortable bedrooms, almost all with stunning views, 3 en suite and more than enough other bathrooms for everyone. The showers were powerful and hot. We had a nice surprise finding a ping-pong table in the garage! My Dad was the local ping-pong champion back in the day, it’s like it was meant to be! We all had a fabulous weekend and would highly recommend this house if you are looking for somewhere special for a family gathering.

We all enjoyed watching the Aircraft from RAF Valley, especially a couple of aircraft enthusiasts in the party. As one 4 year old grandchild put it “ I could stay here forever”. I think that says it all. A thanks to the Menai staff who were friendly and very helpful with any queries.

  • "This property is very suitable for large family or group get togethers or celebrations."

    The property, although a little remote, is situated in a location with stunning views. It is close to the Anglesey Coastal path so one must be aware of the tides. The house is very spacious with comfortable furniture and it is well furnished with tasteful paintings and ornaments of a sea side theme. Most of the bedrooms have ensuite bathrooms and there are two family bathrooms, which helps with a large party. The kitchen is extremely well equipped. There is a pleasant garden suitable for outside games activities.
