  • "Absolutely loved our stay at Monteva!"

    Perfect location to walk into the busier parts of Whitby. Excellent for young children with 2 lovely parks nearby in walking distance. Monteva had all we needed for a comfy, relaxed stay away from home, plus some wonderful added extras that were gratefully received! My children both said the house was 'gorgeous' and said 'can we please come back?!' I think that says everything. We'll be back!

  • "We had a brilliant time, the cottage is just perfect and is in a great location to accessing everything Whitby has to offer."

    The little welcome pack was a lovely touch, even left fresh milk and a bottle of fizz for us arriving along with some doggy treats. The house is modern and well decorated, plus the beds are so comfy, all in all the perfect getaway to Whitby, we will definitely return.

    Thank you for the feedback Rachel, It's fab to hear you had a great stay and would return. We look forward to your return visit. Property Owner

  • "The property decorated to a high standard and is very comfortable and homely."

    The only reason I’ve not rated fully in facilities and maintenance was just due to a loss of hot water in the shower. I rest assured if I’d of reported this it would have been resolved but at the time we just used the bath as hot water was coming through this. We had great communication from the owner, prior to arrival and during our stay when had a query we got a prompt response. The beds in the house are the comfiest I’ve stayed in. It is quiet around the location and after a busy day in Whitby with small children, we could rest and relax in this lovely property. Facilities included added extras such as a dishwasher and coffee machine, travel cot, high chair. We absolutely had everything to enjoy our stay. Compared to other properties we looked to book for our dates, it was very reasonably priced and high quality. If returning to Whitby would look to book this again.

    Thank you for the great feedback Kate. I'm sorry to hear about the shower, if you had messaged I would have explained that the hot / cold turn is very sensitive and if there's hot water from the bath the water would be hot for the shower too. We will look at getting the dial replaced as it should be simple to use but it is too sensitive and can give cold water when turned too fast. We are delighted you would return and we look forward to your return visit should you choose Whitby again. Property Owner

  • "What a delight, clean, comfortable immaculately maintained."

    The quality of fixtures and fittings far exceeding expectation. Without a doubt would return in the future. We asked our grandchildren too rate it against all the other properties we have stayed, "The Best" was the answer. Thank you for giving us the privilege of staying at your beautiful holiday home...... PS It says in the description that the stairs may be an issue, my wife struggles with stairs but found no problem negotiating them safely.

    Thank you for the great feedback Mark, the feedback from your grandchildren is the best yet! We look forward to welcoming you all back in the future. Property Owner

    Everything we needed was there including free wifi which was great for my teenager and dog treats for my black lab. Beds were comfy. Short walk into town for sightseeing lunch etc. Weather was fab too. Would definitely stay here again.

  • "The cottage is lovely and well maintained cleanliness wise."

    There was a bit of a damp smell throughout the property but to be expected for the age and location. Would have been amazing to have a bit of seating area outside with the weather been so lovely but we were so close to the town and area that we were out during the day. The extra little touches of a welcome drink and the coffee machine were incredible. Thank you for such a love stay.

    Thank you for the feedback Laura, we will investigate the report of a damp smell with our cleaning company and maintenance team as we are not aware of the property having any dampness and it's not been smelt before. It would be great to have an outside seating area but as the listing states this property is a two-story maisonette with no garden. We do not own the space outside the front door, unfortunately. We are delighted to hear you enjoyed the refreshments provided for your arrival. Thank you for choosing Monteva for your Whitby stay. Property Owner

  • "Our first visit to the seaside town of Whitby was made perfect by staying at the lovely Monteva apartment."

    A real home from home we always looked forward to returning here after our long days out walking,touring or fossil hunting!. The apartment was super clean,modern yet quirky with a really comfortable bed.All mod cons including dishwasher, washing machine,coffee machine with pods provided and lots of nice thoughtful little touches we discovered during our stay such as a selection of games to keep the kids entertained under the footstool!. Wifi was good and reliable and parking never an issue (we arrived over the famous Goth/steampunk weekend) with plenty of spaces available whenever we returned after trip out with the car. A quick 5 minute walk and you were in town with a nice Co-op to stock up with essentials for the days outings,plenty of pubs/restaurants,fish and chip shops etc,Whitby is a fascinating place to wander around with some stunning walks along the coastal paths and walkways heading out of town. We found plenty of fossils on the foreshore right side of the pier heading towards the abbey with some lovely Ammonites, sea glass and a small piece of Whitby Jet (confirmed). All in all a wonderful stay in a lovely apartment and we cant wait to return again and bring the grand kids next time for some fossil hunting adventures! Thank you Natalia for letting us stay at your lovely home!

    Thank you for the feedback Steve, it sounds like you had a fantastic holiday! We look forward to welcoming you back in the near future. Property Owner

  • "Monteva is in a great location to enjoy a costal break and make the most of all that Whitby has to offer."

    It’s just a short walk to all the main attractions and makes this the perfect retreat for your trip and allows you have a base to explore this stunning part of the country. The effort that goes in from Natalia to making your time memorable and stress free certainly didn’t go unnoticed and we can’t thank our hosts enough for this and we will definitely be booking again to make this a regular trip away. It’s the little touches and details that make all the difference and separates this place from the rest. The accommodation is modern, spacious with great comfy beds and becomes a home from home. We found the parking next to the house was always available which was a great bonus in peak school holiday time as Whitby was as busy as I’ve seen. What more can you ask for. Every box is ticked and we can’t wait to come back.

  • "We had a lovely long weekend, two humans and a dog!"

    The place is beautifully decorated and has lots of lovely mod cons. What I particularly appreciated was how Natalia, the property owner went over and above to make us feel comfortable. It’s a long drive from London and when we arrived I was delighted to find milk in the fridge, there was a bottle of bubbly and chocolates as we were her first holiday residents. The little caring touches like the dog treats and doggy bags were so thoughtful. The dishwasher was very welcome as it reduced friction. The hose is a short walk from Whitby town centre and a beautiful Sandy beach. We were lucky with the weather and had crispy cool but sunny days. There are lots of nice shops. We arrived on a Steam Punk weekend with lots of people dressing up and promonading around town. This may have something to do with Bram Stoler, the creator of Dracula being from this region. Lots of fish and chip shops so it was great to be able to cook at the house with nice ceramic pots and pans. It helped me manage my weight as there is a lot of yummy food to over indulge on by the seaside! I’d never stayed in a house quite like this one where the main entrance is not on the street. The house is on quite a steep hill with limited free parking. So if you’re good with hill starts this is a great place to stay. Once again, thank you Natalia for all the caring comforts of home

    Thank you for choosing Monteva. We are delighted with your feedback and glad that you enjoyed your stay. Property Owner
