  • "Great communication before we travelled - nothing was too much trouble, even down to checking what coffee machine the house had!"

    The property is beautifully decorated and clean, this was an initially a concern to me as so many holiday lets aren’t - but this was spotless. It also had comfy beds & nice bedding. The ability to book a 3 night stay was a huge benefit to us too as many properties want a 5 or 7 night minimum stay in school holidays which doesn’t work for us anymore with older children. It was also well priced for a 3 night stay. We will definitely book again. Thankyou

  • "A lovely and attractive property."

    Crockery, cutlery and equipment was very well provided although I was disappointed with the condition of the non stick frying pans and baking dishes. I suspect that they had been previously ill treated but I was put off from using them. I couldn’t find a potato peeler! There is no heating on the upper floor but although the weather was cold and wet we were never cold. However, it was not easy to dry towels as there is no heated towel rail. We made a makeshift rack in the airing cupboard using the loose rails that were there! The bed on the top floor was a bit strange as it had two mattresses which kept sliding. We also found the 15 Tog quilt very warm. I think people need to be aware that the ceiling in this room slopes rather a lot on one side of the bed. I am only 5ft 1 inch tall but had to bend over almost double to get into bed or get clothing from the bedside drawers and this problem was exacerbated by the thickness of the mattress. We think an extractor in the bathroom on the upper floor would be really good. Freeing up a cupboard in the kitchen for dry food would be a good idea. Perhaps glasses could be stored in the bookcase/cupboard in the dining area. The fire extinguisher and blanket should really be fixed to the wall for easy access in the event of a fire. Despite my comments above, we did enjoy our stay at the property and would definitely consider staying again when visiting relatives. It is conveniently situated for walking into Abersoch. Unfortunately the weather was not on our side to do that.

  • "Extra shower over bath would be useful Ridiculously bizarre numbering system on the estate!"

    Please put house number on outside of house. Stress need for own towels. Kitchen floor was not soundproofed so downstairs bedroom was noisy Light switch in shower room was in a bad spot. Lots of good facilities and very clean. Thank you

    Hello, thank you for kindly leaving us a review. We agree with you, it would indeed be useful to have an additional shower over the bath in the upstairs bathroom. As the summer season is now over, we will be in a better position to look into having one installed. Yes, you are absolutely right! The house numbers on Cae Du can be so confusing and we do have a number displayed clearly on the front of the house, unfortunately, the week before your arrival date we had a beautiful new balcony fitted and the number had been taken down for the works to take place. Please accept our sincere apologies for any inconvenience this has caused you. We shall certainly reinstall the number for the benefit of future guests. We do hope you enjoyed the new balcony and were able to enjoy some late summer sunshine on there. It does state quite clearly on the website that although all bed linens are included, towels are not, please accept our apologies if you didn’t notice that. We are so very pleased to hear you found our property to be very clean and full of good facilities - we aim to give our guests the best possible holiday we can in Bywyd Da. Thank you again for your kind review and we would love to welcome you back anytime. will Property Owner

  • "A cottage sleeping 8 should have 8 comfy seats in lounge."

    Also a second shower would be better. Very well stocked kitchen

    ***** UPDATE Another shower has been installed in the upstairs bathroom. Thank you so much for your feedback, it’s always so welcome from our guests. There are in fact 14 seats in the lounge area in total, we are so sorry you found them inadequate. We agree with you that a second shower would be useful in the upstairs bathroom, it would be a welcome addition to the bath, that some guests prefer. We are currently looking into having one installed. We are happy to hear you were pleased with the kitchen equipment, we have tried so hard to stock it well for the comfort of our guests. Thank you again for your comments and we would love to welcome you back to our lovely home any time. Property Owner

  • "We spent a lovely few days at Bywyd Da which is in a great location, short walk to centre of Abersoch, even nearer to the beach and to a small Food shop."

    Loved the open plan living space, perfect for everyone to be together. Very comfortable beds, well equipped kitchen and an overall cosy feel.

  • "The heating and hot water was not on when we arrived."

    Apparently the cleaners should have ensures it was ready. It took a couple of hours to get it going after phone calls between us, Sykes and the owner. There was no info pack at the house which would have helped. The shower was very small and didn’t frown very well. The garage light did not work. The house was lovely- styled very well and easy access to the village.

    Hello. Thank you for your review. Please accept our sincere apologies for the heating and hot water issues you encountered upon your arrival and we were so happy we were able to rectify it within a couple of hours for you. We agree about the info pack, we were not aware there wasn’t one available, but one will be accessible to our guests in the future. Thank you so much for bringing this to our attention. The light bulb going out in the garage was unfortunate but has been replaced. Thank you again for letting us know about it. We are so pleased to hear you loved the style of our house, it was chosen with a lot of love and care. We agree with you, the location is wonderful, within a short walking distance to the beautiful beach and wonderful village of Abersoch. We would love to see you again, enjoying our lovely property in Abersoch. Property Owner

    With just a short walk from the beach and town it was an ideal get away for our family. The outside area was an added bonus with the girls enjoying eating breakfast, lunch and tea in the sunshine. We definitely would recommend it to our friends and would be happy to visit again. Thank you

  • "Bywyd Da is simply stunning with every attention to detail that you could wish for."

    The owners have thought of everything you may need on holiday. The location is perfect, a short walk down to the beach and the towns' amenities, its charming. Even if you don't fancy a wander to the beach, the back garden is a sun trap with excellent garden furniture, perfect for a chilled out afternoon and evening. All in all, a beautiful holiday home in a beautiful location. Our family has stayed here 3 times and will definitely be revisiting this year. 10/10

The property

Bywyd Da, Welsh for ‘Good Life’, is an excellent, semi-detached holiday home situated in Abersoch.

Resting in the peaceful Cae Du estate, lying a short distance from Abersoch’s High Street and beaches, Bywyd Da is a fantastic base for a family or group of eight’s coastal holiday.

After parking in the ample off-road spaces for three cars, head inside to find two stylish ground-floor king-size rooms, one featuring warm tones and coastal finishes, and the other sporting a spacious interior; both rooms boast plenty of storage for your things.

The ground-floor bedrooms share a sleek shower room, a space showcasing contemporary tiling and a spacious walk-in shower.

Climb the stairs to discover a stunning open-plan living space, a room showcasing rustic, exposed beams that complement the contemporary fittings.

The sitting area contains leather sofas for you and your loved ones to stretch out on as you watch your favourite show on the wall-mounted TV; the sitting area opens out to a sunny balcony, with more seating for you to relax on as you catch the rays.

The kitchen is an impressive spot and boasts high-gloss fittings that house integrated appliances, including a handy built-in microwave, washing machine and tumble dryer.

Just behind the kitchen is a fantastic dining area, with cream, leather seating for you to settle down on as you enjoy a tasty meal accompanied by a glass of wine.

Ascend the stairs again to come across two more bedrooms, the first one being a double with calming blues and greens throughout, and a lovely twin room that is superb for the kids; both rooms feature skylights and enjoy shared access to a brilliant bathroom that showcases bath and illuminated mirror, so you can get ready in style.

The rear garden is a marvel that has been created with tranquillity in mind; not only does it feature manicured landscaped but contains sun loungers and outdoor seating for you to take advantage of.

Meander into the village and grab your essentials from the amply-equipped SPAR, before savouring a local ale from The Vaynol, and venturing down to the fabulous beaches surrounding the village; the golf club also isn’t fair, why not stop for a game?

Spend the day in Llanbedrog, where you can pay the impressive art gallery & café of Plas Glyn y Weddw a visit and enjoy a movie at the open-air cinema during the summer months; the village is also home to a range of eateries and a popular beach that is waiting to be explored.

Enjoy an outing in Pwllheli, where sports fans can spend some time at the town’s Leisure Centre with a pool, tennis courts and children’s activities; tour the quaint Oriel Y Mor art museum, before basking in the sun on Traeth Glan-y-Don or Traeth Marian-y-De.

There is plenty to see in this part of Wales, with the fantastic fortress of Castell Criccieth, the heritage centre of Nant Gwrtheyrn and the exciting Glasfryn Parc just a short drive away.

Create long-lasting memories with your loved ones from Bywyd Da.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

The village, situated between two glorious bays, is one of the most popular sailing venues in North Wales and important sailing regattas are held there throughout the summer months. Numerous shops cater for the tourist as well as pubs, restaurants and cafes.
