    Parking right out side was great but the bushes next to the bay need cutting back more this is not picky I have a bush at home and I have to keep that pruned back as it impacts and the space .The beds were comfy and all the appliances were fantastic and the view was superb and the lift a great asset

  • "A great apartment in a good location."

    Good communication from the owner. Dedicated car park space was a big advantage. We'd love to rent the property again in the future.

  • "Sizeable, two-bedroomed, top floor marina apartment, over-looking River Esk."

    The Abbey is visible from the front bedroom window to the extreme right. Located within 10 min walk of central Whitby, location is quiet and relaxed. Accessible via stairs AND lift and with an outside designated parking space. We thought the location ideal for exploring Whitby and served as a luxurious base during our stay. If returning to the town, we would definitely book this again.

  • "Really enjoyed the accommodation - excellent view, clean and accurately described."

    Would have been useful to have accurate details regarding parking, safe key code prior to arrival as this was not communicated in the booking confirmation. Difficult when travelling from afar with young children and needing to get into accommodation asap. Had to ring Sykes. WiFi code also had changed. Information just needs updating. Property was very good and very clean. We enjoyed our stay.

  • "The apartment would have scored top marks if it was clean."

    Unfortunately this was not the case during my stay. Floors, internal doors, skirting boards and furniture were filthy, not to mention the bathroom sink! Not the start to a holiday that anyone wants. On alerting the owner and Sykes of the problem and providing photographic evidence of the filth, no attempt was made to rectify or redress my inconvenience. It seems that Sykes have no interest once your money has been taken and the owner disinterested in resolving my complaint. Go with a plentiful supply of cleaning products!

  • "The accommodation was as expected and comfortable however the total lack of information regarding entry to flat was unacceptable."

    When we arrived there was no information as to which key box was for our flat. It turned out to be the one labelled XIII for flat 6! The details stated that there was a lift but there was no sign of one in our block. The lift is in the ajoining block and then there is an outside corridor on each floor joining the 2 blocks which we finally discovered ourselves. The key to our block also opened the ajoining block but again we had to discover this for ourselves. The parking for our block was labelled underneath and again the key opened this. However there was no space labelled for flat 6. We entered the flat and looked around for information but there wasn't any obvious (we later found a folder in a drawer under the TV with information on the dishwasher and dvd player and out of date information on the wifi). In the end we had to phone sykes who had to phone the owner to find out where we were to park. All of this information should have been given to us along with the key number. The last thing anyone wants after a long journey is to have these problems. I feel entry to the flat, parking and access to lift are ALL very important and this should be dealt with so that other customers don't have to have the same hassle.

  • "The apartment is well situated in a quiet location and only a 10 minute walk into town."

    The apartment was clean and comfortable. You can see the sea from the flat, but only distantly. However, it was great fun to be able to see the steam railway and slipway from our window. We also enjoyed the fantastic sunset views over the river and town.

  • "Customer care was rubbish,having telephoned twice when we arrived as there wasn't a parking space for us."

    We were fobbed off,eventually seeing a cleaner who showed us the small overgrown space to park our car.My husband got a cut on his arm and scratches on the car from the overgrown bushes.He had to cut back the bushes by hand.There was building work at a nearby boat yard,so apart from Sunday loud banging and machinery from early morning,we came home early.

    However this year has of course been blighted by the covid epidemic but the cleanliness of the apartment and the preparations that were made for our holiday did indeed exceed our expectations. The facilities were excellent and we wanted for nothing. We felt valued as guests.

  • "We had a lovely holiday in the Marina apartment."

    The view over Whitby is gorgeous and our little one loved watching the steam train each morning. The flat was clean and tidy, it had everything we needed for our small family for a comfortable stay. It is an easy walk into town and a great location for exploring the area. The owner was friendly and responsive. I happily recommend it!

The property

Found in the traditional seaside town of Whitby, is this splendid third floor apartment, located just a few minutes’ walk from the centre and overlooking the River Esk that splits the town in two halves.

With its modern décor and bright rooms, this apartment is a delight to stay in, and with two bedrooms it is a great size for a small family, or a holiday with friends, with lift access as well for those less able to manage the stairs.

After coming through the front door, take off your sandy shoes, and sink into the sofa in the open-plan living space for a well-earned rest, while your other half sets about getting your evening meal prepared for a quiet night with picturesque views of the harbour below at sunset.

Moving to the other side of the apartment, you’ll see the fantastic king-size for you to snuggle up in later on, with a wardrobe there for you to hang up your things and make yourself at home, while the twin room down the hall has two single beds, ideal for the kids or extra friends.

The well-sized bathroom contains a walk in shower.

The property comes with an off-road parking space for one car, and access to the third floor is via the stairs or a lift, so it can be suitable for those with any range of mobility.

There is a diverse range of activities and attractions in Whitby, with the obvious choice being a trip to the beach, as Whitby is home to some of UKs best beaches, with Whitby Beach being about one mile walk from the apartment and why not carry on up the sandy shore all the way to Sandsend for a relaxing beach stroll.

Recently named Britain’s most romantic ruin, is Whitby Abbey, set on a cliff overlooking the town, holding over 2,000 years of history in its stone walls, home of saints, a king’s burial place and the inspiration for Bram Stoker, author of Dracula, this abbey is a must see for those interested in English heritage.

The town is surrounded by the North York Moors and is a haven for walkers with plenty of signposted and maintained routes available for those visiting, with opportunities to hire bikes or explore via horse-back riding as well so there is surely something to suit everyone.

Great for exploring the North Yorkshire coast, this apartment will be an excellent home-away-from-home to enjoy with your loved ones as you get to know the scenic town of Whitby.
