  • "A lovely holiday enjoyed by three generations ages from 3 to 69 staying at ARKOO."

    The property is very comfortable, well stocked and clean. Brilliant location so close to the beach. Also good communication from Fiona the owner.

  • "Arkoo - what a superb location, could not have been closer to the beautiful beach at Rhosneigr."

    Central to all village amenities, we would not hesitate to stay here again. Communication from the owner was excellent. Thank you for a wonderful week, we will be back!

  • "The house was damp, kitchen and equipment were very outdated and grubby."

    The house needs full modernisation. Great location though

    I am very sorry you were affected by storm damage from such a wet and cold Easter week. I am pleased to say the gutter causing the issue has been repaired and I did compensate you for the inconvenience . It is a shame you turned off the new air circulation fan we have just had fitted as I think you would have found it very effective . Property Owner

    The house was very comfortable and well equipped. The dining areas in the conservatory was lovely and light and the courtyard was a suntrap. It was just right for our holiday.

  • "Thank you for the lovely stay in Arkoo."

    We really enjoyed the property and would visit the area again. Only one downside of our stay was the smell of dogs in the lounge! The property states no pets on the website, but this either isn't the case, or hasn't been abided to. We're not a dog family, so the smell was unpleasant for us and did cause some minor allergies. This aside, we had a very nice stay and appreciate the good comms with the owner. Kind regards, Chris

    The location was fantastic with the back at the end of the road, worth mentioning that you can see the sea through the main bedroom window whilst reading in bed.

  • "Our family have had a really lovely holiday at Arkoo."

    The cottage is homely, welcoming and so close to one of the best beaches for sports activities and children of all ages, not forgetting the four legged vacationers. There's a great holiday feel to the village which offers a variety of eateries and a few designer type shops. All in all a great holiday. Our thanks to hosts Fiona and Jonathan for their helpfulness and for lending us their home. Would certainly return.

  • "We were very disappointed with this property."

    Whilst we had been advised that the owners were trying to get replacement furniture for the living room (and left a bottle of fizz to compensate) we felt that it did not live up to its advertised features. On arrival the living room furniture looked decidedly tatty and the suite had a distinct musty smell about it. When we tried to air the room it was difficult to get the patio doors open and impossible to open the windows. The room is spacious but needs a serious make over. Of the four bedrooms; the two doubles were cramped and the two singles had no heating. Housekeeping needs to pay attention; there was a considerable amount of dust under one of the double beds and when we had to retrieve the cable for the bedside lamp it came with a string of felt like dust which looked like it had been in residence for some time. The ledges in the bathroom were also covered in a sticky dust like substance. Another major failing at this property; do not turn up with two cars and expect to be able to have off road parking as they claim. There is space for only one medium sized car and parking on the road is difficult at best, even in October, so will probably be chaotic in summer. We booked this property for this October and again next August to bring the kids and grandchildren. On the basis of what we experienced this year we have cancelled next year's booking. Over the years we have stayed in several excellent properties in Rhosneigr but will not be returning to Arkoo.This property has great potential but in its current state is definitely not good value for money.

    Thank you for your review and we are grateful for your input. With regards to parking, it can get busy on Harrison Drive mainly because it is so central and right on the beach. However you can comfortably fit one car on the driveway and a second car in front of the house and other owners tend to regard those spaces as specifically belonging to each house. Despite the Covid situation, which is the reason we were unable last year to make the changes we needed to, we have now been able to make a considerable amount of improvements since your last visit. We have located where the mustiness was coming from and have had the areas fixed. We took delivery of a brand new lounge suite before Christmas. We have spoken to the cleaner and addressed the issues mentioned and she is fully aware now of what is required of her. The patio doors have been mended, we have improved the beds and lastly we have fitted a new shower/wetroom upstairs, with a Villeroy and Boch toilet, power shower and underfloor heating. We are continuing to update the property all the time including redecoration and extra heating in the bedrooms. Property Owner

  • "The location of the property is fantastic being so close to the beach and also in the lovely town of Rhosneigr."

    The facilities were good and the property itself was quite large however; the property would benefit from having some money spent on it and the cleaning, especially in a Covid-19 environment should have been better. The mattresses were old and uncomfortable, sagging in places and meaning we were unable to sleep in the same bed. Elsewhere there were signs of damp and the property smelt strongly of it (to the extent that we washed all of our clothes when we returned home even those we didn’t wear). Additionally, the furniture in the lounge was very old and uncomfortable. The settees were heavily worn with rips and worn material and the cushions were worn thin. Cleaning could have been more thorough and when we arrived we had to clean the microwave which had food splashed in it and the cooker. Additionally, there was dust on all picture frames and in the bathroom, there is a small ledge where the plaster meets the tiles and this was full of dust. Overall this didn’t give us the confidence that the property had been cleaned thoroughly and so we spent the first two hours cleaning it ourselves. Overall we enjoyed our holiday and we would return to Arkoo but only if the property had some money spent on it as in our book, a comfortable nights sleep is the minimum you should expect.

    Thank you for your review and we do appreciate it.

We are continuing to update the property all the time including redecoration and we are planning extra heating in the bedroom although the house is a warm property anyway. Property Owner

  • "We have been coming to this property regularly over the past few years."

    It's in a great location, just yards from the beach and the Main Street. The property is well maintained, well equipped and has always been spotlessly clean. The owners have always been very accommodating with any requests we have had and we always look forward to seeing all the improvements that have made year on year including a new shower room with underfloor heating.

The village has a varied history including a 6th century church, tales of smugglers, famous off-shore shipwrecks and from the Edwardian era it has been a fashionable holiday destination. Today it is known for its magnificent beaches and renowned watersports, providing some of the best windsurfing and kitesurfing in the UK, with tuition available in the village. Activities include fishing, sailing, sand yachting, wreck diving, golf and hours of family fun on the enormous sandy beaches. There are several pubs, restaurants and shops in the village, with the market towns of Llangefni and Holyhead (starting point for day trips to Dublin), and the city of Bangor within easy travelling distance. Rhosneigr is located near to RAF Valley, famed for Prince William's Air Sea Rescue training base.
