    The property itself was immaculate, and in a fantastic location to appreciate the immediate surroundings of South Cliff (gardens and promenade to the Spa), the Cleveland Way towards Cayton Bay, and Oliver's Mount. Will definitely return.

  • "Have left a note in the owners - visit book."

    but will provide further notes. parking great - except curtains twitched outside flats - directly opposite hol flat. good that dog /s acceptable in such a nice modern flat. however what let it down was pigeon mess directly outside front door and on raised patio. not sure how this can be stopped. health hazard for small kids. also steps up/down- seriously needs a hand rail on brick work side, full length, as steps are old/worn etc. location of flat great-posh area..

    Thankyou for the feedback. Being a seaside town we cant help that sometimes the seagulls / pigeons make a mess. The block is having new nets put in place to help this. Really surprised about the handrail not being to your satisfaction as there is a hand rail on the railing that is very sturdy. Its not typical to have a handrail on either side, the steps are made from yorkstone that will not wear. I was glad to hear from your call that you'd had a really nice time and wanted to stay for an extra night. We'll take your feedback on board. Property Owner

    This end of Scarborough is much quieter and with the walk down through the gardens, it’s perfectly placed (especially with the cliff lift to get back up!). Our dog was welcomed and we had great, friendly communication from the owner. Welcome pack was also, well, welcome!

  • "Absolutely fantastic, what a lovely place Esplanade Hideaway is."

    I would not hesitate to return, spot on. If only all holiday accommodation could be this good. The bed was very,very comfortable, a high density memory foam mattress, which was great as I have bad neck and lower spine problems. Sykes could do with insisting all accommodation owners have theses mattresses. Richard could not do enough for us, wonderful. If you can book this accommodation.do now. .

    The property hasn't been painted fully, bare skirting boards, gaps around tiles etc. Could do with taking the time to finish off a few jobs to make it perfect

    Many thanks for the feedback. We have taken time to repaint the skirting and re grout the tiles. We aspire to have the apartment to the highest standards and appreciate drawing our attention to this. We're really glad you had a great stay. Property Owner

    Our host richard was fantastic and looked after us and recommended places to go and eat. The only thing we had to be aware of was the small gate in the patio as our dog could jump this. A higher gate would have been better so he was more secure. Overall, we had a great time and would return again!

    The apartment has a crisp contemporary decor, which has been well thought out and was immaculately clean. The kitchen contains all the necessary utensils and the living room has large comfy sofas. The shower is powerful and the bedroom quiet with a quality mattress. The owner could not have been more helpful with directions and recommendations. What more could you want? We look forward to returning soon.

Taken to the contemporary kitchen, offering a dazzling range of integrated appliances amongst sleek units and LED lighting, this setup is sure to inspire some home-cooking, whether it be for a seaside picnic, hearty breakfast or a well-deserved feast.
