  • "We were very happy with our stay."

    The house was comfortable and well located. As we had entered through the front door, we did not realise that the outer back gate key was in a second key box in the lane and only found it after walking round to the bins on the last day, so this could be made clear in the instructions.

  • "The property is very large and spacious, it could be an amazing property however does need some improvement."

    Washing machine doesn’t work and no help when we emailed the home owner, the lounge furniture needs some updating and is very uncomfortable. The garden should have a gate to be able to shut in dogs. The kitchen is very well equipped. Good location and into the heart of Whitby within a few minutes walk. We had a nice stay however wouldn’t stay here again

    Sorry to hear this feedback, we will take points on board. We did remove the rug however as it was trapping dog hair and we felt the wood floor is more hygenic. Property Owner

  • "It was a lovely house with with good sized rooms."

    Well furnished, good central heating. Could have done with a Kitchen Utensil set and bathroom needed skirting board behind loo cleaning. On our arrival we found the only pan set was very rusty inside the pans. I texted one of the numbers on our paperwork and the gentleman arranged for a quick delivery of very nice stainless steel pans delivery a couple of days later. He also provided quick answers to any questions. One thing I did not like.. when we stripped the beds we found that the back bedroom Mattress Protector was badly stained. Otherwise a brilliant week and in a really nice house. Walking distance to the centre and the hill soon became easier to climb. Took a trip to Scarborough and one to Bridlington. Plenty of shops and supermarkets a short drive from the house.

  • "We had a lovely five day stay here recently."

    A beautiful house which accommodated four adults, one child and two dogs very easily. The beds were so very comfortable; the dining room was big enough for us all and the kitchen was well equipped. Only a short downhill walk into Whitby which was lovely at night time. Access may be tricky for those with mobility issues as a lot of stairs but that’s clear on the description. Parking was a huge bonus but it’s a busy little street so I’d advise reversing into the spaces. A few things could have improved our stay - * toilet seats were all wobbly and not secure * missing parts on a bedroom door mechanism * a gate at the top or bottom of the garden steps would make it secure for dogs and children * the ‘welcome information’ book was missing Thank you for sharing your house with us xx

  • "We had a lovely stay at the harbour hideaway!"

    Fully equipped kitchen and some extras like board games and a fab list of local pubs left for us. Some of the toilet seats are wobbly and slide around, but other than that the house was great! Would definitely come again. Thank you

  • "Thank you for our stay would like to point out a few things the toilet seats all need attention they are not good at all ."

    One bedroom door does not shut correctly as the mechanism has been completely removed. A lock on the bathroom door would be good especially when you go with friends. The property could benefit from a deep clean windows in lounge especially inside their was some socks in front garden to left of window the rear yard is not in a good state sorry I sound slightly negative over certain things but I feel the owner should be aware of this thank you Denise

  • "Lovely spacious and clean property close to multiple amenities, fish and chip shop and dog friendly pub literally around the corner and 10 minutes walk into town centre and train station."

    If I had a few niggles with the property I would just suggest a Welcome Pack, explaining where items are kept (vacuum, ironing board, fire safety equipment etc…) when the bin collection date is… (had to google that one). And how appliances Also maybe a few more pots and pans, we liked to cook breakfasts most mornings and for 5 people didn’t feel like there was enough cooking equipment (plenty of crockery and cutlery items though) Overall a lovely stay and would love to return at a later date.

    It is a short walk to the centre of Whitby so, we parked up and left the car on the off road parking for the duration.

  • "A really lovely house which was exactly as described."

    It had everything we needed and having parking for two cars was a bonus. It was also in a great location being a few minutes walk from the railway station and town. We really enjoyed our week in Whitby and were extremely lucky with the weather. The beds were very comfortable and we all managed to sleep well. The kitchen was well equipped, also there was plenty of room for the whole family to eat together and plenty of seats in the living room.

Enjoying a wonderful location just moments away from the bustling town of Whitby and its beautiful beach, as well as easy access to the scenic North York Moors National Park, Harbour Hideaway is the ideal dwelling for a group or family of eight looking for the perfect blend of country and coast.

Park-up in one of two sought after off-road parking spaces, before being greeted by a delightful front garden where up to 8 people can enjoy a morning cup of coffee as the world goes by.

Be welcomed into the sitting room, where you can enjoy relaxing movie nights with your loved ones on the TV over a bowl of popcorn.

When dinner calls, the chef of the group can conjure up delicious feasts in the well-equipped kitchen, which features two fridges and a handy dishwasher, ready to be savoured at the dining table for eight.

Completing the ground-floor is a cloakroom, ideal for quick freshen ups!
