    ! After showing friends and family they are now also considering using the hideaway pod :) but owners made us feel so welcome and helped us at every need and request couldn’t ask for better hosts.

    Thank you for your lovely feedback and we look forward to seeing you again. We noticed you that we didn't get full marks for comfort, from you, and wonder what we could do to get 100%? Property Owner

  • "POD well equipped comfortable, would have like little more outside lighting touches was provided but a light especially When using hot tub!"

    And maybe and path to Get from car to pod as very muddy when wet! Host weee fantastic and welcoming nice little touch with welcome pack would defiantly recommend

    Thanks for taking the time to give us some feedback. Lighting has been a bit of a dilemma for us as it is so lovely on a good evening to be able to do a bit of star gazing without too much light. That is why we put in the solar lighting but that has proven not to be great over this winter. We were planning to reinstate a light between the pod and the tub so will be going ahead with that. There is a short path to the pod but it has been soooo wet of late that people have been driving right up to the pod which has churned things up a bit. Roll on the better weather!!! Property Owner

  • "This is the most Beautiful Pod in a perfect location!"

    Spotlessly clean and very private but close enough to lots of tourist attractions! The hot tub was amazing, although not ready on the first day which was abit of a shame but its because it had been freshly cleaned for us. We also had some issues with midges around the tub at night but this was solved with some fly spray! The hosts were fantastic and couldnt do enough to help! Almost everything you could need in the Pod, tea, coffee, milk, tea towel and kitchen/toilet rolls, which was an added bonus! However no storage space for clothes/cases and no large mirror (small one above bathroom sink) I would definitely come and stay again! Thanks Ian and Sally

    It is small but very thoughtfully equipped and stylishly furnished. We quickly got used to navigating the ladders for the sleeping platforms which were very cosy! Although the location requires a car, it is great for access to both the beaches of the Lleyn Peninsula and to the mountains of Snowdonia and Criccieth is only a very short drive away.

    Luckily our youngest was 18months so took cot but if he was 12months older he’d have wanted to be upstairs with his older brother so not ideal. Will definitely return when children are older x
