  • "Had the perfect week in a lovely bungalow which was clean and with a well equipped kitchen."

    We were lucky to have great weather so enjoyed the patio area for Dining and drinks.. Great location for all that we wanted to see in wales. We came with children who thought the bungalow was cosy and homely which they could relax in… I couldn’t ask for a better location and place to stay whilst visiting wales and will be back.

  • "Overall was a nice place to stay."

    Disappointed we didn’t have access to the bicycles. The property would benefit from being modernised. It appears that some areas are modern eg kitchen, en suite but other rooms (furnishings) are quite dated. The check in and out times should be amended. 5 o’clock is too late and you basically lose a day of your holiday and 9 o’clock check out time is too early.

  • "We didn't find the property very welcoming at all."

    When we entered the property there was a musty smell. It felt like we were stepping back in time to the 1970's. The property, apart from the kitchen needs decorating and updating. The carpets especially need either a deep clean or replacing. I wouldn't like a baby/toddler crawling around on them! The family bathroom has fitted carpet and a pink bathroom suite which was in fashion during the 1970's. That alone shows how badly it needs updating. The property is advertised as child friendly, I would not say it is. There are three steps leading from the hallway to the family bathroom and bedrooms. There are also steps leading from the patio area to the lawn. We didn't appreciate having to strip beds etc before we left the property!! We wouldn't stay here again.

  • "This is a lovely bungalow in a really nice location."

    It’s probably best described as partially modernised or updated with the remainder still clean comfortable and perfectly useable. We had a great time - relaxing but with lots to see and do. Nice views from the terrace, kitchen and living rooms out over the Menai Straits. Set in a location that’s easily walkable into Caernarfon and also great for day trips around the area including Snowdonia, Anglesey and the Lyn Peninsula. Our only criticisms would be the extreme access times, 5pm arrival (even on an off peak arrival day and 9 am departure and the now unnecessary removal of ornaments and decorations around the house which made it initially look a bit uninviting and drab. These are Covid related processes that now seem just like a company trying to make their own life easy. Menai also have a bizarre system of telling you to email them queries and then failing to respond to that email trail?

  • "We found the property very comfortable, clean and well equipped."

    Parking excellent and the house in a quiet area with beautiful views. Location wise it was close to so many places to visit, our only problem was we could have stayed for much longer to visit more places! We will just have to come back again. Amazing kitchen! The whole property made our holiday very special! Thank you so much to the owners for sharing this lovely place.

    It would help if they had larger duvet,s on the bed,s anda lower tog. There are wood lice in the property we had to disspose of each day. The central heating needed resetting, which they new about and did nothing about. The windows in the French door,s needed a good clean. Last of all why do we the guests do the cleaners work.!!!!!!!!! If we had stayed in a hotel we wouldn't be expected to do it.

  • "The house is in need of a full refurbishment with the exception of the kitchen everywhere else is tired and old including the furniture, the house looks like it hasn’t had any update or money spent on it in years and it shows when you are staying there."

    The reason though why I booked this was the photograph showing the outside patio area with the view of the sea and the inviting patio furniture with parasol , we were lucky to have had nice sunny weather when we stayed but to our disappointment there was none of the furniture for sitting and dining outside apart from 2 plastic garden chairs without any cushions , there was no table or parasol so we couldn’t eat outside or enjoy the sun in the garden on an evening and the photographs showing all of this furniture set up with cushions etc is very misleading to be honest and should be removed from the advert as it simply isn’t a reality It is a shame as the cottage is in a lovely location and we couldn’t understand why it’s best feature ( the patio area and view ) could not be enjoyed fully without the garden furniture as it is currently advertised Had I had known this would be so I wouldn’t have booked it and would’ve looked elsewhere The carpets are all in need of renewing , the bathrooms are very old fashioned like something out of the 70’s and in the twin bedroom it smelled very foisty of old furniture All of the furniture is very dated throughout the property It is an ideal base for getting around and seeing beautiful parts of wales just a shame it he cottage wasn’t what we had hoped for

    A fairly easy walk to Caernarfon along the coastal path. The spacious bungalow is very well equipped with everything you need for your holiday. We had a great week.

  • "Couldn't fault the property."

    Would have been good if they could have left some leaflets on the area. (they could have picked enough up enough to leave new ones every week.) As it was, we were stuck to know where everything was. The other little gripe was we really needed a parosol for the table outside. Was way too hot to sit outside most times. Other than that, the property was really lovely.

  • "Generally we were very happy at the property, it suited us accommodation wise, and the spacious kitchen was for us the star of the show, we spent most of our time there when not sitting on the terrace/patio having a drink and watching the sun go down over Anglesey."

    We particularly liked the fact that it was generously stocked with good quality saucepans, china etc. and was all new, modern and easy to keep clean. The newly done en suite shower room was another bonus. Also the location - on the edge of Caernarfon and two handy supermarkets, but very peaceful with lovely views, it was ideal for us - mixed party of all ages. Our only niggles are around the somewhat rigorous interpretation of Covid-type regulations: having to empty the dishwasher before a 9 am departure seemed a step too far; also the lack of a basic welcome pack good quality holiday homes always provide - not even milk, the odd tea bag, a bit of sugar. This was a first for me after many years of holiday cottage experiences, the last two in Covid times, August 2020 in N Yorks, and September 2020 in N Devon.

  • "The house and facilities provided at Mon A Menai were above our expectations."

    The house was warm and clean and well furnished. The views from the property was relaxing, looking from the terrace over the Menai Straights at all the boats as they sail past. The weather was reasonable and we were able to explore the North Wales area everyday. It was only a short drive in to Caernarfon and papers etc could be bought at the nearby Morrison store. If you are looking for a base to explore the North Wales area you will not go wrong if you stay here. We will book again.

  • "Lovely house in quiet area with fabulous sunset views from the garden."

    Kitchen has all the equipment you need to make and bake a banquet . It’s a short walk into Caernarfon ,either along the main road or you can cut down and along the coastal path. Caernarfon is a good base to explore NW Wales and has a castle, good variety of pubs, restaurants , supermarkets and quaint shops . Only things to be aware of is that the garden has a steep drop from patio to grassy area so not really suitable for toddlers .The double bed is on the soft side .Otherwise a fab base for a holiday .

    The scene from the patio is ideal for a lazy afternoon or evening. On first entering the bungalow the first comment was ‘I want to live here’ and that has no change during our holiday. We will certain look to return in the near future that is if all the other returning customers don’t book first. My last note has to be a thank you to the house keeping staff as the property was immaculate on arrival Than you
