  • "A cosy, comfy house which was perfect for our visit."

    Beautiful mid-century decoration, clean and well-equipped with great beds and showers. The beach and town are a stone's throw away. Couldn't have asked for more.

    Thank you Claire. So pleased you enjoyed your stay. Hope to see you again soon. Sarah Property Owner

  • "In the details there was no mention of the steepness of the stairs and a hand rail should have been fitted In the kitchen there was nowhere to store food except in a cupboard marked for food which had no shelves."

    The dish washer was far too small and the saucepans and dishes were inadequate for four people let alone seven The heating was complicated and even after we phoned the owner we could only get one radiator and a towel rail to work The fittings and fixtures were very nice and of a high quality but the house was most disappointing

    Thank you for your feedback. We will alter the information about the property to state its over 3 floors and the attic master bedroom is accessed via slightly steeper than average staircase without a hand rail. The extra food cupboard is left without a shelf so that larger items can be stored in there. Unfortunately due to space restrictions a 3/4 size dishwasher can only able to be fitted. We have increased number pf pots and pans. The heating is a NEST system that can be controlled by a dial on each floor of the property or remotely by myself. Always happy to help if you call me .

  • "Fantastic property in a fantastic location."

    Helpful owner who was very responsive when I had a few questions. We had a brilliant family holiday overall and would go back if we ever decided to go to Whitby again! Only improvements I would suggest is making where to park more obvious and cleaning underneath furniture (only noticed because we had a little one who spent a lot of time on the floor and dropping toys underneath sofas etc).

  • "Beautifully decorated, cosy house."

    We travelled with our 8 month old son so we had to spend more time than we would usually in the accommodation. This wasn't a problem as the surroundings made us feel like we were still somewhere special rather than just a practical flat.

  • "Fantastic property."

    Very modern and warm, very tastefully decorated and perfect location. Allocated parking though is not allocated parking, it’s an area at the back of the property that may or may not be occupied by another vehicle, even day trippers who strike lucky? In our case the occupants of the apartment below, a note was left on the car by the cleaner to park elsewhere using a provided parking permit, but they just removed the note and left their car there for the week. We managed to find a spot near the property and used parking permit provided. Perhaps a sign indicating it’s the designated spot for the house and not the apartment below, we booked this property specifically for the allocated parking as there were plenty of other properties without allocated parking. Very disappointed with this aspect. Perhaps a DVD player would be nice with a house of this standard and some glasses for cold drinks, wine etc.

  • "We had a great time and thought the standard of decor and cleanliness of the house was very impressive."

    We loved it! Only 2 constructive criticisms... 1. The mattress in the attic room is very hard and uncomfortable. We got little sleep because of it. Worth investing in a better quality mattress. 2. The website advertises a parking space at the back of the house. On arrival a red car was parked there. I called the caretaker number and was advised to come back later as it may have been the cleaners car. I was also advised that there would be parking scratch cards in the house. We paid to park on the seafront and when we checked again later and the red car was still there along with a white car alongside it. The white car was blocking in the neighbour. The neighbour then came banging on the house front door complaining that we had blocked them in. It transpired that the white car belonged to the guests of the apartment and they were nowhere to be found. When we came home later that night the red car was gone and the white car (of the apartment guests) was parked in our allotted space. It was there all weekend so we had to pay for parking on the front for both of our cars all weekend as at no point was there one space on the street or streets nearby in order for us to use the scratch cards. It would make sense to not advertise parking with the house as this was all a bit stressful. If it was advertised with no parking we would have just paid to park elsewhere and not worried about it.

  • "Gorgeous properly and brilliant location."

    Only issue was that the parking space reserved guests staying in the house (to the rear of the property) was being used by the guests staying at the flat below the house when we arrived, which meant that we had to park both of our vehicles on the road in front of the house. The main road gets busy and unless you’re very lucky you end up parking a bit further from the property. One member of my family has mobility issues and relied on having close access to the house (which I explained when we arrived) and I feel the situation could have been dealt with better by the owner as several days passed before her other guests moved their car, but other than that no complaints.

  • "Very good location."

    Would have been nice to have had more than one set of keys for the property, so individual guests could return at different times. Rear porch lock not easy to unlock.Wooden flooring in the kitchen/ lounge dirty.

  • "This is a truly lovely house, which felt like home as soon as you walked through the door."

    A bottle of prosecco and some delicious biscuits were left for us as a welcome gift, plus a beautiful bouquet of flowers. The decor and furnishings are fabulous and the heating system is very efficient, keeping us toasty whilst the gales and hale stones were whipping up outside! Our only disappointment was that we couldn't stay longer and we will definitely be returning. Thank you so much!
