  • "Welcoming homely apartment with everything you need for a short or long stay."

    The prosecco and cookies were a lovely touch! Beautiful quiet location with pleasant views. Within easy reach of the esplanade. Lots of walking and things to do, along with plenty places to visit and enjoy. All in all we will definately be back we loved it.

  • "Sailors and Mermaids is a beautiful apartment."

    Very good location for walking into town, etc. The only addition I would make is to provide a clothes airer so that you don’t have to use the dryer. Other than that it’s the perfect holiday apartment and the Christmas tree was a lovely surprise.

    Thank you for your feedback, we are really pleased that you enjoyed your holiday. We do have a clothes airer that is kept under the King size bed, we leave it hanging out a little so that it can be seen, however it must have been knocked further under the bed out of sight. I will update our page to make sure future guests are aware of the airer and will also put a note on the dryer itself to let future guests know that there is also a clothes airer. Thanks again and hope to see you again soon. Property Owner

  • "Lovely 3 week stay,perfectly located in the quiet part of Scarborough and so close to the lovely walks that abound in that area such as the rose garden and the italian gardens."

    Loved the walks down to the seafront from the many paths and if they get to much there's the cliff lift that brings you back up. Apartment itself was very clean and comfy with lovely views from the floor to ceiling windows.

  • "Fantastic holiday."

    The apartment was stunning, the decor excellent. So peaceful yet so close to the beach, Italian Gardens, Clock Cafe and Costal Walk. Apartment was of an extremely high standard and had everything you could wish for. The location resulted in a 2 minute walk to both the beach and Clock Cafe which we frequented regularly during our holiday. I would highly recommend Sailors and Mermaids Apartment for anyone visiting Scarborough and we shall return.

  • "We had a fabulous 4 night break in this gorgeous property."

    It is decorated and furnished to a very high standard and is equipped with everything we required to make our stay very relaxed and comfortable. The location of the apartment was ideal for us within easy walking distance of the town and we had no problems parking outside the property using the supplied parking permit. We would highly recommend this property.

  • "A lovely, clean, tidy and comfortable property in a lovely location."

    Made for a very comfortable and enjoyable stay. Only two very minor recommendations for improving a stay: 1. Info in the house book about recycling and bin colours. (We had to search the internet.) 2. There weren’t any dishwasher tablets. (Suspect just run out but not replenished.) Will be keeping this property in mind should we return to Scarborough next year. Thank you for a lovely break.

    Very tastefully decorated. Wish I was younger then wouldn't have found the stairs so daunting following the climb back from the town centre

    I would certainly stay again. Very quiet area, a fair walk from the centre for those of us with no car but coming back uphill and then up 4 flights of stairs certainly walks off the calories!

The property

Stunning second-floor apartment in the elegant Esplanade area of South Cliff in Scarborough, North Yorkshire is perfectly placed for both the beach and town centre.

It is just a stones throw to the seafront and the cliff lift to the beach, or you can stroll through the ornamental Italian Gardens.

Offering a family of five accommodation with stunning décor, along with offering easy access to Scarborough's delightsome beaches and attractions, Sailors & Mermaids is a truly marvellous getaway!

The apartment is accompanied by daily permit parking, so you won't have to worry about where you leave your car during your stay.

Upon arrival, climb the stone steps into the building and venture up to the second floor to be welcomed by a beautifully decorated apartment.

The open-plan living space enjoys a light and airy atmosphere, thanks to its large bay windows with views of the sea and the harbour, and is where you can kick off your shoes and stretch out on its sleek sofas whilst you watch your favourite programs or films on the 50" smart TV or Blu-ray player.

When you're feeling peckish, move across the space to the kitchen, with its high-gloss units boasting a selection of appliances, including an electric oven and hob with an extractor fan.

Once you've whipped up a culinary delight for all to enjoy, settle down at the breakfast bar or at the dining table by the floor-to-ceiling windows.

As the day winds to a close, head to bed in a marvellous king size bed that features calming blue tones throughout and benefits from an en-suite shower room; the second bedroom has a delightful triple sleeper.

Continue along the corridor to find a contemporary bathroom, where a soak in the bubble bath awaits after a day out at the beach.

The apartment rests in an enviable position, with all your amenities sitting less than a mile away, along with a sizeable range of attractions, from Sea Life Centre, Alpamare waterpark, Scarborough Spa, Open Air Theatre for live music hosting many famous names throughout the year and, of course, extensive beaches to the historic delights of Scarborough Castle.

Be sure to venture along the Cleveland Way for lovely coastal walks that also skirts the Yorkshire Moors and has many beautiful walks with stunning views to offer.

Within easy reach is the famous Flamingo Land Theme Park and Zoo, which has something to offer every member of the family, from thrilling white knuckle rides to children's entertainment.

For country lovers, the North York Moors National National Park is only a short drive away, with heather clad moors, cycle tracks and numerous footpaths or head to Dalby Forest for many outdoor activities.

Or take a trip on the steam train that runs through the stunning scenery from nearby Pickering to Grosmont or explore Robin Hoods Bay and Whitby to the North and Filey and Bempton Cliffs to the South.

Or maybe The medieval City of York will be more to your fancy?

Whisk your loved ones away for a holiday they'll never forget, choose Sailors & Mermaids.
