  • "The apartment overall is lovely and in a great location however there are a few minor maintenance niggles that prevented this from being a full 5 star feedback."

    1) The window in the rear bedroom needs fixing to address the seal around the opener. It was whistling loudly from the wind when we arrived. £5 worth of blutack to seal the window fixed it for our stay. 2) The shower head in the shower room is in desperate need of cleaning / replacing. 3) There is a very small leak in the toilet in the shower room. Either at the bas of the bowl or the waste pipe joint at the rear. 4) There is very limited space for clothes storage in the second bedroom. We had to store almost everything in the main bedrooms wardrobe. 5) A proper pair of oven gloves wouldn't go amiss rather than the heatproof pads provided. In summary, if the above were addressed then we would stay again. The second bedroom let's the property down a little

  • "The property was in a great location with a great sea view."

    The property was comfortable and nicely decorated. The lift was an added bonus. The only negative was the water pressure on the shower, but that said I would still recommend the property. My friend and I really enjoyed our stay.

  • "This is a very pleasant flat, situated near the sea, which can be seen from the side windows."

    It was clean and comfortable and well equipped, and the open plan area is quite spacious, which is not always the case. There is a lift up to the flat from within the building but there are steps up to the front door, so access would be difficult for people with mobility issues. I would have liked more information for arrival: the key safe was not obvious and it took us a bit of puzzling to work out how to use the lift key. Once in, though, we had a lovely holiday. Would recommend.

    Very well presented with good facilities ideal for a family of four. The lift was a great bonus once we had worked out how to operate it. Better instructions for the lift and car parking would be of great help. The car parking was very easy and the lift easy to use after a phone call to owner who was very helpful. We would only book this flat when we return to Whitby any other would only be second best.

  • "We were disappointed with the safety and security at the rear of the property."

    The back bedroom window would not close as the handle was broken. On top of that the window opened fully and had no safety device to prevent anyone (especially children) falling out. We text the owner upon arrival and expressed our concerns, initially we were ignored and the 2nd text she responded saying it would not be repaired for 3 weeks. We have two young children that were sleeping in that room and we had to make a temporary fix in an attempt to prevent any accidents or break ins. As a Mother concerned with the safety of our children I did not sleep well whilst there so therefore did not fully enjoy my stay at Whitby due to tiredness and anxiety. I feel owners need to respond to their guests promptly and carry out repair work swiftly especially when it comes to safety of their guests and their property. We certainly have, due to Covid paid well over the odds for a holiday this year which as I stated earlier I could not enjoy fully due to the owner failing to maintain their property.

    The communication from the outset from the owner and facilities provided were excellent.

    When we gained entry to the property we where pleasantly surprised to find a very clean and well presented property with complimentary milk, bread & biscuits. We only had a few very minor issues which I have past on to the owner. The location of the key safe is not obvious so a little bit more information on key safe location would be good. The location is close to the centre and we had a good time walking around all the old narrow street. Car parking can be difficult in Whitby but the close proximity of the car park and free parking permit is a big plus. I would defiantly recommend this property.
