  • "The house was lovely."

    Spotlessly clean with everything we needed and more. We will definitely book this house again

  • "The house was clean and tidy, and was well equipped with plenty of space."

    Being within easy walking distance to the beach and Criccieth town centre was also a bonus. The only down side was the very uncomfortable bed in the en-suite bedroom, something other guests have commented on. Also felt that there should have been an earlier time for checking in and later for checking out. Having to clean a large house like this and be out by 9 am was something of a challenge. Other than that we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here.

  • "A lovely holiday home has everything you need."

    Very comfortable and it was lovely to look out the window and see the sea every day. Weather could have been a but better but that’s one thing we couldn’t choose. Ideally situated for visiting other places and site seeing.

  • "Really good property very clean good accommodation very nicely presented really happy we booked this property in a quiet road plenty of parking but only a couple of minutes to shops and a couple more minutes to the beach."

    Very good views of the sea, mountains and across the bay. If we come to this area again would definitely book this property would have no problem recommending it.

  • "The house was very comfortable and in a good location."

    Parking was easy, right outside on the road. The house was warm and well laid out with wonderful views. There was lots of space. The owners were great on communication and very responsive. The mattress in the front double bedroom does need replacing. A steamer would be a great addition to the kitchen. All of the ceiling light fittings are very low and some of them are sharp, spiky metal. If you are tall you will hit your head repeatedly! We had a problem with the lights in the dining room and lounge as they flickered very badly. Even with the negatives we would still go again as the positives outweighed them.

  • "It was great location and very comfortable and well equipped and stocked dwelling."

    Didn't need to buy anything extra. Great welcoming touch to have milk in the kitchen. Only minor issues. The bed in the master bedroom was creaky and mattress too soft. When two people shared you were both colliding in the middle when you turned over... Likewise in the other bedrooms too. Also the toilet seat needs fixing in the en-suite. Had to turn off all the plug-in air freshners as it is not suitable for all customers, especially for those with asthma and allergy. Late check-in was unexpected despite the Covid as when we booked it still had 4pm on the website and to be informed 48 hours later to 6pm and 9am check-out was very disappointing indeed. Especially when nothing had changed as far as Covid status was concerned...

  • "We had a lovely holiday."

    The photos don’t really do it justice - the house has an amazing sea view. The location is perfect to explore Criccieth, Porthmadog, Portmeirion and beyond. The house was spotlessly clean and the facilities were excellent.

    No books anywhere in the house for rainy days, books on local walks in the area.

    The location gave us easy access to our favourite places on the Llyn Peninsula .It was nice to be able to walk into Criccieth to the beach, the castle and lovely places to eat. We had a great holiday.We were just short of a couple of comfy chairs to sit in the sun in the quaint back garden. Luckily we had some fold up one's with us.
