  • "The weather really helped us have a great stay as we were able to enjoy the outdoor space at every opportunity."

    First thing in the morning with coffee right up to sunset with a glass of wine. The patio was covered which protected us from the one and only shower of rain but also sheltered us from the beating sun. The garden is lovely and completely closed off meaning our dog could roam around free without us worrying if he could escape. Our one and only complaint was that one of the previous inconsiderate and irresponsible tenants did not clean up after their dog each day so there was at least a weeks worth of dog doo covering the lawn when we arrived. Unfortunately the cleaners did not notice this so we spent the first half hour picking it up. This was reported to both Sykes and the owners for which we received an apology. This did not spoil our stay. The beds and sofas were comfy. All the bedrooms were bright and airy. One of which even had a sink which was handy for our friend who didn’t get to choose the en-suite. The kitchen was well equipped and we were able to prepare our own meals each evening with ease. We were able to connect our streaming stick and game console to the TV so we had plenty of evening entertainment. The downstairs loo in the garage was handy as it meant we didn’t have to go upstairs every time. The house is just a 10 min walk to Peasholm Park or across the road down to the beach. Both are great for walking the dog. Overall we had a great stay and this will be our first choice next time we return to Scarborough.

  • "The holiday home is lovely and spacious in a good location."

    We enjoyed the local parks, beach and town, all within walking distance. The kitchen had everything we could have needed. The additional fridge freezer in the garage was very useful. The garden is safe and secure. We particularly enjoyed the en-suite loft room as the primary guests. Maintenance is however a significant issue. The sofas (stink) in the lounge as well as some if the dining chairs (falling apart) urgently need to be replaced. The oven needs a deep clean, although there is a liner, guests before us had saturated this and underneath this in oil, thus smoking out the entire house when in use and creating a fire hazard. The shower in the family bathroom is unusable, the holder and temperature gauge broken (stuck on constant scalding). The shower tray in the en-suite is also blocked. The mattresses also are probably the worst we have ever slept on. We do usually clean before we leave but the hoover also has no suction.

  • "This is a spacious property in a great location with Peasholm park, the open air theatre and Alpamarle water park all within easy walking distance and the bus stop just outside."

    For us with young children we found it good that it is adequately furnished but without to many things we were scared would get broken. A few niggles, the shower gets very hot and I couldn't adjust it, couldn't get freesat though the BT vision gave us all we needed and we couldn't get the hockey puck to work. One on the list to revisit in the future.

  • "Everything at the property was as expected and met our expectations except for the "Ground-floor cloakroom with basin and WC" and "Utility"."

    We were very disappointed with the Ground-floor cloakroom with basin and WC" as having 2 young grandchildren with us we expected this would be beneficial. However the toilet was through the garage via a heavy fire proof door and not suitable for young children and the basin was no longer to be used as regulations did not allow water as the gas boiler was located there. The Utility was actually the garage and had no washing facilities in it, it did have the large Fridge/Freezer and Washing Machine. The location itself was excellent with easy access to all the North Bay facilities and sea shore. We had a very enjoyable extended family holiday here.

  • "The house is lovely and close to the beach but there was a very overpowering ..."

    The house is lovely and close to the beach but there was a very overpowering smell in the living room witch was impossible to get rid off even when I bought some fabric freshener, also sofa is very uncomfortable and stinky, even bed in master bathroom was lumpy so had to move to loft bedroom witch was better but apart from that we enjoyed our holiday

    Thank you for your feed back and now we are able to respond to your comments I would just like to apologies for the smell. We have now had chance to give all the soft furnishings in the living room a good deep clean with an industrial cleaner and this has fixed the issue. We have also placed polite notices to anyone visiting with a dog that they should not be allowed on furniture and they should be dried before entering the carpeted areas. It is unfortunate that some dog owners had not done this in the first place and therefore impacted on your stay. With regards to the mattresses we have made a check on these and they have all been rotated. They are all still relatively new mattresses and having stayed over the winter on some occasions our selves and haven't encountered an issue however we do apologies for your encounter. We are pleased you still enjoyed your holiday. Best wishes Property Owner

  • "The property was acceptable and generally well kept."

    The beds were comfortable and clean. The location was good. I knew when I booked the property that it was dog friendly, but the sofas and living room had a distinct wet dog smell. It really was not pleasant. I feel that the sofas and carpet should be regularly professionally cleaned to combat that issue. I would definitely not book a dog friendly property in the future but acknowledge that maybe it’s normal for this to be an issue where dogs are allowed.

    We had to leave the window open each day to make it bearable which was disappointing. The en-suite shower and family bathroom sink are very slow draining. Some oven gloves in the kitchen would be helpful. Otherwise really good accommodation for our family

    The living room smells of wet animals and the furniture was really dirty in the living room,A note had been left on one of the dinning chairs (damage do not use ) This should have been removed and replaced with a chair ASAP as was not enough chairs for us all to sit round the table to eat .And I think a tumble dryer would be great to have at the house

  • "The first floor bedroom blinds in all three rooms were inadequate."

    Would be better with roller blinds. Lot's of traffic noise from the very busy road late into the night. The garage area where the toilet and refrigerator were was very untidy. No means of operating the tap in the toilet although there was a hand sanitizer outside the toilet. The lawn area in the back garden was more like a meadow, (grass required cutting). The BBQ was not as expected, obviously built to take a tray and a grill. These were long gone. Big piece of glass stored in the rear garden. Not safe with children about. Not enough current information about local bus timetables etc. The recycle bin was full from previous occupants, the bin also had incorrect items inside, (used nappies etc.). I placed the excess recyclable items in a bin bag for collection with the bin. This was not taken it is now in the bin to add to the next occupants waste. Maybe more information about recycling would help. It was a very nice house, lovely beds, nice bedrooms. Pity the maintenance has let it down.

    Big garden, patio area is a real sun trap in the late afternoon. Lovely big rooms and very comfy beds. Everything we needed in the house, only thing we couldn't find was a cutting board in the kitchen. Great location, especially with the pub over the road that allows dogs in the bar area. Will definitely be staying there again.

  • "Thoroughly enjoyed the holiday."

    The house is in a prime location, and is a lovely lay out. Kitchen is well appointed, and the extra fridge is very handy. Bathrooms clean and great sizes. We had a great time. Our only disappointment was that despite calling before the holiday to arrange the beds in two rooms being split into twins this wasn't done. So we had to have two adults and two children in one room, which was a squeeze to say the least and did not make for restful sleep, so that non couple adults wouldn't have to share a bed.

  • "Sometimes problems occur - life isn't perfect."

    When we arrived at our cottage the heating and hot water had failed. Sykes and the owner responded quickly and temporary repairs were made to the boiler. The owner didn't want us to be worrying about further problems over Christmas so arranged to have a new boiler installed the next day, with little disruption to us. We then had no further problems. This on top of a generous welcome pack and a beautifully decorated house made our Christmas a good one. This was going the extra mile. Thank you Kev and Helen and Sykes.
