    We would highly recommend staying here. The apartment was lovely, clean well equipped. A lovely welcome chest with lots of goodies. Including a cake and card for my son's birthday. Local to the centre of town. It was like home from home. The owners were also very helpful. Would definitely stay again. Thanks Craig and Mandy.

  • "The property owners have gone above and beyond with equipment and furnishings in the apartment."

    Everything was spotlessly clean, automatic lights on when you moved about the apartment, very handy lighting on the stairs. A very generous welcome pack was greatly appreciated, it included milk, tea bags, coffee, biscuits and a bottle of Prosecco, plus a bag of treats for the dog. We met the owners on arrival and they were very informative about the area and very helpful with our one or two questions. Told us to ring anytime with any problems should they occur , a very friendly couple. Parking in the courtyard was a bonus as we were so close to the centre of Whitby, took us about 5 mins to walk into the centre of town and the harbour. Very convenient to be so close to all the amenities. Perfect location if you don’t want to venture far, we only used the car twice in the week to visit elsewhere. Highly recommend this property if you want a hassle free break, lovely and comfortable. The one thing I could say against it is the seagulls, very noisy at this time of the year with their young leaving their nests. But never spoiled it for us, we come from a seaside town ourselves so are used to it.

    Thank you for your very kind review. We are so pleased that you enjoyed your holiday at Treasure Chest. You have certainly had wonderful weather for your break. We understand about the gulls with babies at this time of year. We appreciate that they add to the atmosphere but also they add to your car as well. Kind Regards Craig & Mandy Dutton Property Owner

  • "The property was everything you could wish for and I would have no problem recommending it to anyone."

    If we ever stay in Whitby again we would most certainly stay at Treasure Chest again. The owners gave us all the information needed and more. The only thing was they left a note saying we could take a miniature treasure chest home with us which I promised my 5 year old grandson but unfortunately there wasn’t one.

    We are pleased to read that Treasure Chest Whitby was everything that you had wished for. Avast! Our sincere apologies to your Mini Matey (Grandson); There should indeed have been a miniature Treasure Chest in your Welcome Pack, as a memento of your voyage. Shiver me Timbers! It looks like the Pirates may have had away with the Treasure on this occasion. With a favourable wind and tide, we will ensure that you receive your booty in the next week & by hook or by crook, when we catch the blaggards, we'll make them walk the plank!

  • "We had a fabulous week."

    All facilities were spot on and true to the description. Extremely clean and everything had been carefully thought about. Kitchen very well stocked with everything you could possibly need. Beds very comfy. Thoughtful touch of our own Treasure Chest of goodies on arrival too.

    Thank you for review. We work hard with our teams to try to ensure that evrything is as we ourselves would expect it to be, so it makes us very happy when guests recognise the "thoughful touches" and the hidden expenses of "comfy beds", so that ultimately our guests have that "fabulous week" that you appear to have enjoyed. Thank you. Property Owner

  • "Treasure Chest is a real Gem…."

    We have just returned from 2 weeks staying at The Treasure Chest. From start to finish Mandy and Craig are thoughtful & caring hosts. The apartment was very clean & spacious with everything you need for home from home luxury and much much more. Perfectly decorated for Christmas, but not over the top. Welcome Chest was brilliant. As we were staying for 2 weeks we were given an Enhanced Welcome Chest with extra bits, which was amazing. The bed was very comfortable. Love the design, layout and decor of the apartment. The owners have thought of everything and more. Thankyou for allowing us to stay at this wonderful apartment. Our dog thoroughly enjoyed his daily walks along the beach. And I enjoyed the Fish & Chips. I would definitely recommend this apartment to friends and family. We would definitely return.

    Thank you for your kind words. We are very pleased to hear that you enjoyed many aspects of Whitby and The Treasure Chest during the Christmas Festival time. We believe that during your stay, you also had opportunity to see Whitby's Krampus Run. We would love to host your return during warmer months, perhaps for one of the Goth Weekends, Sailing Regattas, or any of the many other events throughout the year. Property Owner

  • "We had such a wonderful stay at Treasure Chest."

    The property was beautifully decorated, extremely clean and had literally everything you could think of! All amenities and furnishings were of a really high quality and we all slept so well (even our little 20 month old). The apartment itself was huge, so please don’t be put off that it isn’t a house. Everything was so well organised and communication was great, from start to finish. The owners were so lovely and helpful, even posting back to me an item of clothing I accidentally left behind. I would highly recommend treasure chest to either couples or families; the location is absolutely superb. I’ve never been to the Whitby area before but we have been telling all our family and friends how special treasure chest is. We made memories that will last a lifetime and will definitely return.

  • "Upon arrival, Mr Dutton the owner of Treasure Chest (a very pleasant man) met us in the Car Park at the back of the apartment building and gave us the ins and outs of how the electronic gate worked and the key lock mechanism."

    The three bedroom apartment was everything as advertised and more. Everything that we thought we would need and brought with us was already provided, the welcome pack of goodies was excellent and the instruction booklet regarding every piece of equipment in the apartment was easy to understand. Beds were comfortable and rooms airy with plenty of wardrobe space, en-suite and bathroom are a delight and living room and kitchen areas are superb. We had five adults staying and two dogs and the apartment had plenty of space for everyone. The Apartment is situated in a great location, only a seven minute walk to the train station which is adjacent to the town centre, which obviously for Whitby has plenty of Fish and Chip shops, restaurants and Public Bars. We walked everywhere and did not need the vehicles until vacating the apartment. It has been over forty years since i last went to Whitby, we as a family group had a fantastic time, the weather stayed fine for the week and would highly recommend Treasure Chest to everyone and have already done so.

    The location is ideal, the property is maintained to a high standard, very comfortable, well equipped and extremely secure. The welcome 'Treasure Chest' gifts was appreciated by all including the dog. When we did contact the owners during our stay they immediately responded. Local knowledge is essential if taking more than one car, spaces do become available on the roads around the property but they are quickly snapped up (we managed to get a space outside the property for our second car). Thank you for a lovely holiday.

    The kitchen is very well stocked with everything in terms of pots and pans - even a pan big enough to make paella and a full spice rack. Try out the local butcher and fishmonger in town for delicious meals. There is a little balcony two of you can sit out on which was nice. Its a 5 minute walk into the town centre and having your own parking spot is brilliant in Whitby. Its one of the best kitchen's Ive had as someone who loves to cook and with the COVID we did spend more time eating in than usual. The beds were very comfortable and its a spacious apartment.
