  • "We have just arrived home after a wonderful week away at the Calliope House in Whitby with all the family and well behaved dog."

    the house sits very close to the harbour and all amenities and a short walk to the lovely beach and old town. This is a large house with four large bedrooms , plenty of bathrooms and separate toilets, the kitchen and large dinning area was great for all the family to enjoy a meal. Calliope house faces south and was always warm with plenty of hot water and easily managed through a nest heating control. the lounge and snug had large tv's and felt very comfy. A bonus was, we were able to park right outside the property , but does come with parking permits for free parking in other zoned areas, if i get the opportunity to stay again in Whitby, it will most definitely be in Calliope house, Well done it is a credit to the owners to be able to stay in this impeccable home.

    Thank you so much for your comments. It is very rewarding to hear that a group of guests enjoyed their stay so much. It is a special house and we love it too! Property Owner

  • "Great Location Good Facilities."

    Parking can be an issue, but this is an issue within the whole of Whitby. Parking just needs a little bit of thought. Lovely House, perfect location to explore Whitby. There is no shower in the lower ground floor

  • "A beautiful house."

    Which had been restored beautifully. Extremely convenient for the town and shops. Keith was very helpful with a problem we had and it was sorted immediately. As a family we love to cook, so we found the oven not quite good enough. We would definitely return.

  • "Lovely house, great location."

    Plenty of parking passes, managed to find spaces nearby. Would be better with a combi boiler as even using the booster we ran out of hot water a few times. Overall we all enjoyed our stay.

  • "An absolute gem of a property, perfect location and furnished to a high standard."

    The house was extremely clean and truly felt like a home from home. The small enclosed garden was perfect too and although in October we didn’t get to use it much this would be fabulous in summer.

    We were three generations and all loved it; plenty of sofa space in the main living room, a well equipped kitchen and a beautiful garden. One of the best properties we have ever booked. We were very sad to leave.

  • "Only let down prior occupants had not sorted bins out and left grill in a bit of a mess."

    However ended up not using so did not cause a problem. The house is great with spacious layout ended up working out expensive for us as couple of our party dropped out. Great to have the space. Parking was difficult but this is universal in Whitby. Garden area great. Location spot on. Comfortable roomy and well laid out with different view of Whitby. Owners very attentive.

  • "Stayed here for 3 nights and I can honestly say it was the best house we have ever rented."

    There were 8 of us: x4 adults & x4 children and the abundance of space over 4 floors was fantastic. We found the house in excellent condition, very clean, comfy beds, fresh linen & towels, huge kitchen/diner area with an additional 2 lounges and a beautiful outdoor area - lots of space for our large party of guests. The house is equipped to a very high standard. It's ideal situation is perfect for a stay in Whitby with the town centre and beach 5 - 10min walk away. Parking discs were kindly provided and covered our entire stay there. I/we would definitely seek to stay in Calliope when next visiting the area. I would highly recommend this property.

  • "What a beautiful property in a fabulous location."

    We had a fantastic time. There were two families and there was plenty of space for everyone. The kitchen/diner is very spacious and the two reception rooms are great for giving the kids and adults space away from each other. There is a really useful boot room off one of the reception rooms which is great for bikes, shoes etc. The bedrooms are very comfortable and relaxing. The children loved being self-contained on the top floor. But the real star of the show for us was the garden terrace which is a lot bigger than it looks in the photo and is such a lovely spot to sit in for a lazy breakfast and for sharing a drink and a meal in the evening. We were really lucky with the weather so spent both nights sitting there by the fig tree and scented jasmine - bliss! We would definitely stay here again and have already recommended it to friends and family.

  • "What a fantastic place!"

    We holidayed as two families and it met our needs perfectly. So much space over 4 very comfortable floors. Everything you can think of provided. Great location, we didn’t move our cars for 7 days. Whitby provided us fantastic food and activities for our whole week. A great way to spend New Year!

  • "The locality was perfect and the house as a whole was stunning."

    A couple of points , parking is very limited even with a parking pass it is difficult to find a space, I think this should be highlighted more, as once we had parked up we were not moving our cars in case we were unable to retain that space. Which we felt limited us from visiting neighbouring towns. We had a wonderful time! Also with such a wonderful kitchen maybe a TV wouldn't go a miss in here as this is where the 6 of us spent most of our time.

    The sitting area in the garden was an added bonus, perfect for relaxing with our friends and family members in the evening sunshine, who like us, thoroughly enjoyed their stay in this unique property,which we would highly recommend. A couple of concerns I would like to mention however,as the cleaner had not left out the required parking permits,I received a penalty charge notice,which I am having to challenge,and hope to have waived, the cleaner also did not leave out any dishwasher tablets.
