  • "We had a few problems with a broken dishwasher, which was eventually replaced and fitted the day before we left !"

    This is the fourth holiday rental we have taken this year and the first where we have had to supply our own linen. This meant, however, that I was able to see the mattress protector which looked grubby and was of poor quality. I felt it needed washing, which I did before being able to make up the bed. Not what I needed after along drive. There was also a strong nasty smell in the main bedroom .

  • "Wonderful clean cottage - the views are breathtaking."

    Beautiful balcony with lovely outdoor furniture off the lounge. The kitchen is full of every utensil/cutlery crockery/pans etc you can think. This includes such things as washing up liquid & kitchen roll. Brand new John Lewis washer and a dryer with washing powder. Beds lovely and comfy. Two bits of constructive feedback the shower screen in the en-suite needs renewing and the outdoor furniture/area at the back needs a tidy/jet washing. Would definitely return and recommend to others.

    Hi there - thank you so much for your feedback. We genuinely appreciate it. We are so pleased you enjoyed our house. We like our guests to feel at home as soon as they arrive hence leaving certain things to help this feeling. We sorted out the shower screen in the ensuite, replacing all the fittings and seals, so as good as new. Thanks for heads up. We have also given the back patio a sort out - it is newly pointed as at mid-July, so all good to go. We hope to welcome you back again next year. Please ask about return guest discounts. Many thanks Property Owner

  • "Really lovely and confortable property."

    Kitchen is well equipped, and the rooms are well appointed. Brilliant location, short walk down to the beach and the golf club. Great view from the balcony, which is also very well appointed. Lovely additional garden at the back with seating area. Good parking too. We would book this property again.

    Hi, and thank you for your feedback. We think our house is in a great spot - close to Abersoch, but on the quiet side so you can also have some peace. I particularly enjoy my golf as well, so handy for the 3rd tee - make sure you pay your green fee though!!! We hope to see you back again soon, so don't forget to ask about our return guest discounts. Many thanks again for staying Property Owner

  • "Clean but the toilet flush kept getting stuck on."

    .. annoying. Plumber did not arrive to fix it. No linen for beds even though we asked Sykes and were told linen was supplied. House very musty, not pleasant to walk into and live with. Very well equipped kitchen

    Thank you for your feedback. As you say, we keep our property very clean, so thank you for commenting on that. We can understand it was frustrating about the toilet, especially when the plumber did not arrive. We are reliant on our management agent to have suitable trades on hand to resolve such issues, but it sounds as though this was not as expedient as we would hope for. In terms of Linen, our advert does state no Linen, so there was obviously some confusion with our management agent. We are looking to include for the new season. We do have our house professionally cleaned after every guest, so were surprised to read your comment about it being clean, but then reading it is musty. We have had no other comments about this, and on our visits to check the property between changeover, have never had a musty smell. We obviously take the feedback seriously, so did investigate, but with no musty smell, it is hard to trace what may have been the cause. However, we did check the whole house, including a local neighbour to check, but there was no evidence of any musty smell. Very strange. We always want our guests to feel at home, so we believe a fully equipped kitchen is important. This extends to things such as a coffee machine and hand blender, as well as all the crockery you would ever need! We hope you look to re-book to see for yourself how we look after it and note that it is not musty. Property Owner

  • "Excellent property, clean and spacious in perfect location with fantastic beach views."

    All facilities that you need. We liked this place so much we extended our stay another week and came back a second year in a row. Highly recommend this holiday house for a relaxing family break.

    Thank you so much for the feedback and so pleased you enjoyed our house as we do. It really does have a great view and relaxing feel, yet just minutes away from the village. See you again. Property Owner

Machroes Cottage is a brilliant, detached bungalow boasting views of the sea, Tremadog Bay and Eryri (Snowdonia) in Bwlchtocyn near Abersoch, Gwynedd.

Idyllically located on an elevated position and just a stone’s throw away from Machroes Beach, this is the ideal home-from-home for a family of six wanting to enjoy a coastal holiday.

Upon arriving at the property, you will be delighted to find two off-road parking spaces that also cater to boats, for extra convenience.

Continue inside to be taken in by a light and airy sunroom, with wicker seating for you to curl up on as you savour a cup of tea.

Just off the sunroom is the handy utility, where you can throw any sandy clothes into the washing machine or store your wetsuits.

The spacious living/dining room enjoys a coastal colour scheme, whilst hosting ample plush seating for you and your family to get comfortable on as you enjoy a movie marathon; light the multi-fuel stove to give the space a warm glow.

Wander through to the fabulous kitchen, a space that has been finished to an impressive standard and features shaker-style cabinets, granite worktops and top-of-the-line appliances for the foodie of the group to easily make delectable dishes.

Enjoy dinner in the living/dining room, or if the weather permits, out in the sun on the raised side decking, where you can make the most of those views over the beach.

When sleep calls, move through the property to discover three welcoming bedrooms, a quaint king-size with pastel finishes, access to an outdoor area and its own en-suite shower room, along with a king-size with fabulous décor and sea views, and lastly, a lovely twin.

The bedrooms share a bathroom that houses a bath with shower over, so you can savour a relaxing soak after a jam-packed day.

Be sure to make the most of the dwelling’s delightful outdoor spaces, one being a rear patio with a spacious corner sofa and barbecue, where you can savour grilled delights, the other two being a front lawn and a rear lawn that are great for outdoor games with the kids.

A leisurely stroll takes you to Machroes Beach where you have access to the Llŷn Coastal Path, a picnic area and nearby tearooms at Mickey’s Boatyard; the beach additionally backs onto the Abersoch Golf Club and merges with Abersoch Main Beach where you have access to a Yacht Club.
