  • "Great property but hygiene and cleanliness wasn’t the strongest point ."

    Is a walk to the beach but close to the oystercatcher and a few minutes drive to Rhosneigr.

  • "Well designed new build house, on a small private estate with private garden and great views from the rear, plenty of space for two families."

    Good location and short walk to Rhosneigr and a great beach, Oyster Catcher pub/restaurant also on the way and worth a visit (needs advanced booking as busy). Lots of previous comments about the cleanliness of the house - not perfect (my guess is cleaner paid hourly and rushes) but unless you are a clean freak it’s perfectly ok. Could do with a microwave but other than that had everything we needed. We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely use again if in Anglesey.

    thankyou for taking the time to write feedback - we now have a new cleaner - and grass cutter and general maintenance thank you again Property Owner

  • "After booking holiday, we received an email advising check in and check out times had changed as they needed more time to clean the property."

    We got there at 1 and there was no sign of any cleaners, the property was empty. So I am assuming they had ready been in and again presuming that the previous guests left at 9, they didn't have much time to clean a 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom house. I misplaced my keys so we had to move the sofa to look underneath and there was a lot of dust and dirt together with medicine tablets, which weren't ours. We also took the cushions off the sofa and there were crumbs and food again which weren't ours, so definitely hadn't been cleaned. The sheets on the bed were the wrong size and only flat sheets and kept coming off during sleep. There were also ear buds found under 1 of the single beds, again which weren't ours. The was a bundle of dog poo down the side of the house, all bagged up but not put in bin, just on floor, again not ours. We couldn't turn the radiators ff and it was so hot. They were coming on at 3oclock in the morning and of an evening. There was no book explaining anything. Also the TV was amazon and we couldnt get normal tv. Whilst there are so many positives about this property, I feel that they need to replace their cleaner and put an information book together with the WiFi code in.

    thankyou - we now have a new change over company and we have addressed your points thank you for your feedback there is also instructions for heater now on site Property Owner

  • "In keeping with previous reviews, the house was very dirty; dirty hard floors, filthy skirting boards and filthy corners in all the bathrooms."

    One of the bedrooms was uninhabitable owing to an ongoing leak from the main bathroom shower coming through the floor soaking an extensive area of the bedroom carpet resulting in a horrible smell and mould. Cleanliness issues had been raised by the two previous tenants but not addressed. There was no contact information for the owner so we contacted Sykes right at the start of our two week stay, the issues were not resolved for us during our stay which affected our holiday, we were no able to use all the accommodation we had paid for. It cost us £4500 to rent for 2 weeks and we will be pursuing this complaint.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are working with the owner and the cleaning company to resolve some of the issues raised in recent feedback. We continue to try and improve processes with owners and guests alike to deliver the best experience. Property Owner

  • "Beautiful modern property, covers most of the essentials."

    Located 5 mins from town so very peaceful. Wonderful countryside views. Easily caters for 8 adults in space. Excellent wi-fi. Terrific local Spar which caters for almost everything you may have forgotten to pack. Short walk to excellent restaurant, The Oyster Catcher. Decor is simple but tasteful. Waste bins were emptied midweek so no awkward build up. Plenty of car parking space. Garden very secure for dogs. Property in flight path of morning jets from local RAF base which fly over around 11ish which are noisy for a few seconds but we rather enjoyed. If I were to be picky and suggest improvements to this property, I would suggest an extra fridge in the garage to provide space for water, wine, and cans etc although we did holiday during the Summer heat so needed extra fridge space. And maybe consider a couple of replacement mattresses as appear a little too soft. One negative was the grass had been allowed to grow a little too long which had encouraged a few nettles but as we are all struggling with Covid staff shortages this may have been a temporary oversight. Overall,a very lovely holiday home.

  • "Definitely not worth £1500 for a weeks stay The property was very dirty."

    We found pubic hair in the bathrooms and dirty toilets. The floors looked dirty we decided to mop the downstairs floor the same evening as arriving and after cleaning the water in the mop bucket was black. It didn't look like it had been cleaned thoroughly or at all from the last guests. We spent our first night cleaning the cottage, which is not acceptable at all given the covid situation we are in and when you pay £1500 for the place. The kitchen wasn't well equipped for cooking, and what was there was very tired and old. The beds are very uncomfortable. We have informed Sykes about our findings and they haven't been helpful at all. The property is definitely not 5* have they have stated. I definitely wouldn't book this property, look for somewhere else in Anglesey.

    Thank you for your feedback and we are sorry you found some issues during your stay. The owner has spoken to the housekeeper about the cleanliness and other issues you raised. She has always found the property to be immaculate when she has visited and has used the same housekeeper for years wthout issue. She also used to use the kitchen herself to cook for a large family so felt it was well equipped but has taken on your comments and will look in to this. I am sorry you were not happy with your experience and we are still in discussion with the owner about your complaint. We do hope you enjoyed your holiday otherwise. Property Owner

  • "We arrived to a dirty house- dirty floors and bathrooms."

    The first thing we had to do was clean it. No hoover in the property and no mop bucket made this difficult. Ideally there would have been a microwave in the kitchen. The pans were rusty and overall it felt like the house had been supplied with someone’s leftover kitchen items. Poor quality mattresses in the bedrooms. Overall it felt like everything had been done as cheaply as possible.

    Thank you for your feedback and we are sorry you found some issues during your stay. The owner has supplied a new mop and bucket and a vacuum cleaner and has spoken to the housekeeper about the cleanliness. I am sorry you did not contact us at the time as we would have done our best to help if we had known you were not happy. We do hope you enjoyed your holiday otherwise. Property Owner
