  • "Very spacious, well equipped but corners cut which was a shame."

    There is a splendid cooker, the pans were not usable. Where the non-stick coating had been scraped off they had all rusted. So The only way to cook was with frying pans, baking sheets, or to use the microwave oven. New pans don't cost much! Spotless kitchen. The only bed we used was in need of renewal because it was so old. We loved the privacy and the location, the directions were essential and no parking problems because of an ample private drive. An attempt had been made to put down artificial grass but it was a disaster. I'm sure weed -resistant membrane and wood chippings would look better. On the plus, it was really warm and well-ventilated. The amount of light was wonderful - big windows in every room. The welcome pack was also very kind. Nice front garden (there was a pretty border and mixed shrubs) but a bodged, unfinished structure (seating area?) and collection of overflowing bins didn't give the best first impressions. On the morning of our stay we received a call to say a wardrobe door had come off and it was at the top of the list to be replaced, this reflected how there was care about the interior and the comfort it offered visitors. Strange details let it down (the missing carpet at the side of the bed, two carpet squares being laid down to fill the gap). We had a good stay, we really did but were niggled by the details mentioned.

    Hi Penelope, thankyou foryour feedback which I will check on. I only visit the property every two or 3 months now as live a long way off so can't attend to everything on a regular basis. The beds were all new just in May this year, same with the pots and pans,ii have it managed 100%by Menai with now a regular gardener, the asfro turf as put down as bark chipping were yhere which really were a disaster. I was not aware the wardrobe door fhad been damaged but hope it's been repaired. Glad you enjoyed your time in general thanks for your feedback w High I will address Ess.Lee Antattdnd to everything on a regular basis. Property Owner

  • "Really pleasant stay."

    Garden furniture could do to be upgraded. There were only 2 outside chairs. Inside is a bit tired, but clean.

  • "The house is in a fantastic location and is very spacious with loads of light, which is lovely."

    The only thing that lets it down, as some other visitors have also commented on, is the quality of the decor. There are paint splashes on the floors/carpets in pretty much every room, the curtains are very thin and don’t fit the windows properly in some rooms, there are gaps in carpet that have been patched with completely different pieces of carpet or mats in the master bedroom, holes in the wall panels in the bathroom and badly hung cabinet doors in the kitchen which prevents some doors from fully closing. There was also a really fusty smell in the living room - I think it came from the blankets and cushions. These are all fairly minor things, but combined, they let the property down as they make it feel a bit cheaply done. When you pay almost £1000 for one week, this is disappointing. Also, there were absolutely no toiletries provided - no hand soap in the bathroom, no washing up liquid in for kitchen and no laundry detergent in the utility room - and no hand towel in the bathroom either. Again minor inconveniences but providing these for visitors would make a huge difference to first impressions and comfort of the stay. Having said all this, the property and garden are large, the facilities were all in good working order, the Wi-Fi was fast and the living area is very comfortable, so the major points are all fine. If the feedback from ourselves and other visitors was taken on board and addressed by the owners and cleaners, then this would make a huge difference and go some way to justifying the price that is being charged.

  • "Very good value for money."

    Great location and nice to have off road parking. Ramps helped immensely as we are disabled.

  • "This bungalow has been beautiful now a little tired."

    Freshly painted but splashes all over the floor. No toiletries or soap in shower room, lack of towels. Dirty washing in laundry basket. No mattress or pillow protectors on beds, duvets and pillows not good. Needs new patio furnishings with adequate seating. With a little investment this property could be 4 star

    Thanks for the feedback, I spent thousands on the property to get it back to how it was when I lived there. With all new lighting switches and sockets etc, windows doors etc etc not sure why no pillow or matress protectors will speak to the housekeepers as these should all be in place along with toiletries left many thanks hope you enjoyed your time there otherwise.

  • "From the outside looked quite nice and inviting as you stepped inside, the hallway was very wide the flooring was very tired and there were splashes of white paint on every floor including the carpet in both double bedrooms, in the kitchen, the dishwasher was full of plates ect at least it had been washed a small freezer would have been a help there was plenty of empty floor space one of the cabinet doors wouldn't close."

    Onto lounge area, at first, sight looked presentable but after resting up on the corner unit it was an apparent and nasty smell coming from somewhere we wiped it all over and seemed to help but the smell returned. Now onto bedrooms in all not too bad but the carpet paint splashes as already mentioned but to be really honest they are filthy at one stage on Monday I think I thought I would give the carpet a good hoovering but the Hoover was totally clogged up so I completely emptied now bear in mind there was too bedroom carpets and one large rug in the lounge and without a word of a lie I had to empty the hoover three times each time going over the same three areas before I gave up. it had a lovely garden and we enjoyed the birds, squirrels and swing seat as for the fish pond if you have one it should be maintained there was no water pump in use In conclusion, the lovely area had plenty of days out to visit and we will return to the area but sadly unlikely to Haddef An old saying comes to mind don’t spoil the ship for a ha’p’orth, of tar.

    Thankyou for your review, your comments are completely out of context with the property which was checked over by Menai before listing and is professionly cleaned and looked after by my housekeepers. It totally the opposite of all the other comments left in our guest book. There is another saying there's always one. Property Owner

About the location


Conwy 5 miles.

Nestled on the North Wales coast between Llanfairfechan and Conwy, Penmaenmawr is an old quarrying town now adapted into a delightful community stretching along this stunning coastline, yet retaining much of its Victorian architecture, with many local pubs, restaurants and shops, a superb golf course and golden, sandy beaches. Set on the side of the Tal-Y-Fan mountain, many parts of Penmaenmawr and its sister village Dwygyfylchi enjoy stunning views across Conwy Bay to Llandudno, Puffin Island, Anglesey and the Irish Sea, and if you are lucky, dolphins and seals can sometimes been see playing in the bay. A recently opened cycle path leads along the coastal path to Conwy Marina to the East, and Llanfairfechan to the west. Or, head up the Conwy valley through the Sychnant Pass on to the mountain trails that abound there. The sailing club in Penmaenmawr is well established and welcomes day guests, as does the 9 hole golf course, set amongst stunning coastal scenery on the lower slopes of the village. On the promenade you will find numerous activities such as a skate park, a children's paddling pool as well as a beach cafe which is open most of the year. There are also beach huts on the promemade that you can hire by the day. Also near to the beach is a bowling green and all weather tennis courts.

Note: Please supervise children in the garden as there is a netted pond
Note: Accessible property with ramps at the front and back for wheelchairs there are no handrails within the property.
