We have visited these apartments around 10 times in the last few years and every stay has been amazing. My husband and I got married in Whitby and stayed in these apartments for the week. They made our stay really special so we are constantly returning. We have stayed in all of the apartments and each one was lovely, clean,... More

We booked to stay here based on the really good ratings on Trip Advisor. The apartments were located on Khybers Pass and had fantastic views of the ocean. The only downside, which is not the owners fault, was the mini funfair that's located right in front of the apartment. Although as it was out of season it wasn't a problem... More

Such a good spot. Amazing views and central location with no hills to climb at the end of the day. Parking either on the street outside or just a short walk part way up the hill (voucher included). The apartment is well equipped with dishwasher, washing machine etc. The quality of furniture is excellent and ver comfortable. Only minor down... More

Lovely place and a great view (apt 4). Just a few negatives - if the owner is reading this please could you consider the following: *an extra set of keys (would help with logistics) * some kitchen knives (why provide a chopping board but no kitchen knives - really hard trying to chop an onion with a butter knife!) *...

We stayed in the ground floor apartment for three nights in early June. The apartment itself is linear, with a linking corridor. The first room is the living/dining/kitchenette, then the second bedroom, bathroom and master at the end of the hall. Everything was very clean although the couches and cushions are looking a little tired. The views from every room... More

This is the second time we have visited and the place never ceases to amaze! We stayed in appt 3 which offers fantastic views of both the sea, the harbour and the Abbey. Washing up has never been so enjoyable; just a stones throw from the lapping incoming tide. Likewise waking up in the comfortable bedrooms and watching the sunrise.... More

We stayed in Apartment 4 and were pleasantly surprised at how lovely it is. The layout is very good, the rooms are a good size, and the living area is very homely. The apartment is situated on the first floor of the building, which is essentially in the loft area and the views are stunning but just be careful not... More
