  • "Just back from an amazing week staying at Shileen in Seahouses."

    The property was modern and very comfortable. House was so clean and fresh. The welcome pack of milk, bread and wine was very much appreciated especially on a very stormy Thursday night. My only issue was the last step into the garden. Very high, especially for my 90 year old mum and small pomeranian Gizmo. Apart from that property had everything we needed. Would certainly return.

  • "Great stay in a lovely well maintained, comfortable property."

    Perfect location, within a couple of minutes walk of all the amenities in Seahouses. Would highly recommend spending a holiday at Shieleen.

  • "When we arrived we opened the conservatory doors, only to find one of the doors wouldn't close."

    Eventually we managed to close it as the house wouldn't have been secure. I phoned Sykes to report the problem and the owner did respond within an hour. The conservatory was nice as the dining room but the lack of blinds made it like a greenhouse with the beautiful weather we had, so we had to resort to hanging up some covers by fastening them with pegs. A blind at the large landing window would be good as it would give privacy from the nextdoor neighbour. Some bedside lamps would be good, as would a chair in the bedroom. The beds were very comfortable and the house was clean. Unfortunately we didn't bring our dog as planned as he passed away afew weeks ago , but the laminate floor would have been a problem for him. I think this property is new to the market and with a bit more thought to the said above is an ideal place for a stay in seahouses.

    The welcome pack was extremely welcoming and very thoughtful. If I am ever up that way again, would definitely stay in this property as everything catered for.

    Pauline was great at giving advice about the local area and places to visit, also best eateries close by. We love Seahouses and will definitely be going back. Ian B

  • "Such well positioned in the village."

    Parking us superb. The garden was perfect for my dog, very dog friendly. Lots of space in the house, and furnished to accommodate family together and space. Plenty of room and sitting areas so you are not on top of each other! The property was very clean indeed.

    Thank you for your reply. Our lab loves the house as well. Everyone loves our wonderful lady who cleans and is so helpful! Property Owner

  • "Just come back from the beautiful Shileen, so close to the lovely beach, shops."

    The house was spotless, would have enjoyed lights out onto the garden, but thats it, I would definitely recommend Shileen and would definitely go back!

    Mnay thanks for your kind feedback. We are having lights installed in the back. It is good to see people enjoying the space outside. Property Owner

  • "Our cottage was clean, comfortable and we'll equipped."

    Perfect location for exploring the area, lovely to come back to warm house after walks in the cold. We took one dog with us and the garden was perfect for him. I think some outdoor lighting would be beneficial, both along the pathway and then into the garden too, maybe on the shed. There are a couple if steps on the path and I think good outdoor lighting would make it a but easier. Also some sort of blinds for the (amazing) conservatory windows, just to make it cosier when eating at the table. Overall really lovely holiday in a gorgeous house, we would definitely return to the house in the future. Thank you to both the owner and the lady who assisted us if needed.

    Many thanks for your lovely feedback. We have taken your advice and we are awaiting an electrician for new lighting in the back in time for the busy season. Property Owner

  • "Nice sized house in a great location."

    Clean and functional with a nice open kitchen area. Basic but had everything so suited our purpose for a coastal get away. Shame the gas ran out and cut our stay short ..... relies upon bottled gas and all 4 big bottles appeared to be empty on Sunday morning so we did not stay till Monday.

    Thank you for a good rating despite the disaster with the gas. We have sorted the problem for the future with a company coming to check the gas supply weekly. A new owners error on the amount of gas that is used in the winter. We have also increased the number of contacts to reach in a situation such as this. We were not aware that Sykes was not available on Sundays. Property Owner

  • "One of the best holiday homes we have stayed in."

    A joy to spend our time in. Kitchen area is so lovely. Appreciated super king bed and lovely clean bedding. Great to have two showers etc. One tip to improve - we found the boiler very confusing so an idiots guide how to turn the heating on and off would be helpful (manufacturers leaflet not useful) This is a minor thing and would not stop us returning in future.

    Many thanks for your lovely words. We ourselves never seem to leave the kitchen area. Thank you for the feedback on the boiler very good advice. Property Owner
