Firstly, apologies. We actually stayed here over Christmas 2012 but I hadn't realised that the property could be reviewed on Tripadvisor. I only just noticed it now as I was making a further booking to stay here! We are a reasonably large family - 2 adults, 2 grown up children, one friend and 2 under 16's. As we were here... More

This was our second time staying at this wonderful house. It was as perfect as last year if not better. The view from the top floor is stunning and you can get lost in your thoughts just staring out to sea. Everything is there that you need and as we were using it as a base for walking the beautiful...

We have just returned from 4 days staying at Ocean House. There were 8 of us - 3 mums and 5 grown up daughters. What a great time we had! We could not understand the negative comments made by previous guests. OK, when sitting in the kitchen, you couldn't always access the fridge but hey....what are friends for!. Speaking of... More

There were 6 adults and 2 toddlers on our holiday and the house really didn't accomodate us well. There was little storage, the rooms are small and the staircases dangerous for small kids. The house was a little grubby round the edges and has seen a bit of wear - some of the blinds no longer open, the family bathroom... More

I was disappointed to see this review as none of the issues had been brought to my attention by the reviewer ether during or after her visit. It felt a bit like being mugged! For the record the property was completely redecorated internally and externally in Spring 2012 and continual improvements and repairs have been made throughout the year. The... More

Maybe not quite 5 star but there was only 4 of us so plenty of space and the kitchen dinning area was something really special.

Location is great and staithes is lovely. The house is very cute and the owners have tried to maximise the space but with a double bed in each room there is no room to move. We travelled with a young baby that slept in a Moses basket on the floor but we nearly trod on her every time we got... More

This cottage lived up to everything we expected and probably more. Every morning you can sit on the top floor with the sunshine streaming through the large windows looking ove the harbour - must be one of the best views in Staithes. Then in the evening you can relax on the leather chairs having a glass of the old vino... More

This holiday lived up to all our expectations and some! The owners have obviously worked extremely hard to make Ocean View into a great family holiday home. There are in fact 4 bedrooms with the one in the basement being a twin bedded room. the decor is beautiful and the view from the top floor where the kitchen is located... More

This should have been a wonderful long weekend with some old friends....it ended up being a tight squeeze and a lot of hassle. We all loved Staithes - a lovely little village with some cute little shops and the kind of ambiance that makes you not want to leave. the property looked amazing from the photo's and expectations were high...
