  • "The house was just amazing, it was perfect for 8 adults to spend Christmas and celebrate a 50th birthday."

    The house had everything we needed and was so clean. The welcome pack was a lovely touch too. Just as described and cannot recommend highly enough. We will certainly book again.

  • "Harbour Sunset exceeded our expectations."

    We appreciated the quality of the furnishings and layout of the property. The spacious bedrooms and multiple bathrooms worked well for our party of guests. The property’s location gave us easy access to Whitby’s many facilities, the views were spectacular and the garage an absolute bonus! The owner, Jayne, gave us lots of information and did ‘go the extra mile’ to ensure we had a wonderful stay. Every member of our party looks forward to our next visit to this outstanding property (now a firm favourite).

  • "Just returned home from a week's stay in Harbour Sunset and none of us wanted to come home!"

    The house is beautifully decorated, clean and fully equipped with everything needed for a self catering property including washing machine, dishwasher and coffee machine (much to my mums delight!). Then there is the stunning view of the harbour from the living/ dining room which was the icing on the cake. It was lovely to sit on the balcony at any time, day or night, and watch the boats go by (we also saw a couple of seals too!). As it is a covered balcony, it meant we also sat there on the 1 occasion it rained and could still enjoy the view. The house is perfectly situated and just a 5 minute, flat walk to the centre of Whitby. The property owners were only a phone call away if there was anything we needed but the information book answered any questions we had. We are already thinking of returning to Whitby for another holiday and wouldn't want to stay anywhere else!

  • "Had a fantastic stay at Harbour Sunset."

    Family holiday meeting up with sister and family. Accommodation was spotless and had absolutely everything you could possibly need. View from lounge was absolutely stunning and we particularly enjoyed just sitting there and watching the boats come and go. Welcome gift was a lovely touch which we thoroughly enjoyed. Wonderful place to stay for a holiday. Pictures don’t do the property justice as it exceeded our expectations with its central position. Whitby and surrounding coastline is hilly and Harbour Sunset (aptly named) was on the level all the way to the town and beach, so a great base for those with difficulty doing hills. Garage was a definite bonus. The lovely owner Jayne gave us some very helpful info on day of arrival via telephone and made sure we knew she was available should there be any issues (which there wasn’t) right through to her looking for my sisters I pad which she thought she’d left behind (but hadn’t) Jayne and John are First Class at providing First Class Holiday Accommodation and I would definitely recommend Harbour Sunset and would love to return without hesitation. Thank you Jayne and John for the opportunity to stay at your wonderful property . We all Loved it and didn’t want to leave !!!

  • "We were delighted with our choice of Harbour Sunset as our Whitby base."

    The house itself is so comfortable, clean and warm with everything required for a happy holiday. The house has a lovely aspect over the harbour on the quieter side but with pubs, great fish and chips (takeaway and separate restaurant) and other shops and attractions within easy walking distance. We walked everywhere! The garage is probably only suitable for smaller cars but there is free parking opposite on the street. After long days out we enjoyed relaxing and watching the world go by from the top floor sitting/dining/kitchen and balcony.

  • "Great location, with superb outlook from the comfortable lounge."

    Well equipped kitchen. Apart from the lovely front bedroom we found the other bedrooms rather stuffy with no windows, and no fresh air. The ground floor bedroom stayed quite cold as the heating never came on, due to the thermostat being on the top floor which was always warm. No extra bedding available. Very narrow garage only just got car in at a squeeze. But nevertheless a nice property.

    We were all very impressed with the property, it was exceptionally clean and so well prepared. The welcome pack was very handy and appreciated, thank you. The house itself is in a lovely location and only a few minutes walk into the town centre, there's a pub right next door, fish and chip shops in abundance and nice pubs/restaurants close by. The bus/train station is also in the town where you can travel easily to nearby tourist attractions. We went to Robin Hood's Bay which I would recommend visiting. The host was very helpful and pleasant to deal with. Thank you for a wonderful break.

  • "Great property with probably one of the best positions in whitby, stunning view over the harbour and a short, flat walk into town."

    Sky Q in the living room and all bedrooms was a great touch, lovely furniture & fittings throughout. There are 2 fridges and a freezer in the kitchen along with a wine cooler so plenty of storage! 3 out of 4 bedrooms don't have windows with a view they are roof lanterns or velux but this didn't effect us in anyway, the bedrooms more than made up for this with the quality they are kitted out. The king suite on the ground floor is such a good size and has a small kitchen area outside it in the hallway with a hot drink making station & washing machine. My only criticism would probably be that there aren't enough seats in the living room for 8 adults but to be honest, this wasn't an issue for us at all as we sat at the dining table too whenever we were in the property. All in all we had a great stay and would love to return, in the warmer months it would be lovely to sit in the living area with the bifolds open I'm sure. The host was very accommodating and helpful.

    ..little things like crumbs all inside the bread bin and on the work surface and when I stripped the bed linen off the bed in the ground floor bedroom at the conclusion of my stay, the duvet itself was very stained! I also feel like the guest information inside the house was lacking in terms of recycling and disposal of your rubbish. I found the outside wheely bin by chance, the night before we left. All in all though, excellent accommodation.

    The only quibbles we had were the pillows being a bit firm and the ground floor room was a bit stuffy, but this could have been due to the high 20 degree temperatures in Whitby the week we stayed.
