“Beautiful”
Reviewed February 13, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

We stayed here for my 50th birthday. We had been to the island many years ago as children and came back for a special celebration with all the family.
The property is superb with amazing views across Braye Beach. The beds were comfortable and the whole house was spotless including all three bathrooms.
The owners were helpful allowing us to stay a little longer on the day of departure and recommending good places to eat
We will return

A brilliant place to stay. All the rooms are spacious and fitted out to a high standard, making it feel very luxurious. Sitting out on the balcony (glass of wine in hand) was a perfect start to our weekend. Four of us staying meant plenty of room, but even if fully occupied this house conveys a great sense of space. Lesley was really helpful, giving us lots of information and tips about the island - she also gave us all a lift down to the supermarket. which was much appreciated! All in all first class accommodation in a beautiful setting - we will be back!

It is so rewarding to hear that Pipedreamer ticked all the boxes for you and that you enjoyed such a comfortable and relaxing stay. The sense of light from all that glass, helps maximise the feeling of space and by sliding back the double doors onto the balcony, you can really soak up the sun and those amazing views. Alderney is such a beautiful, tranquil island with an incredible and varied history, and it gives me the greatest pleasure to be able to share my passion and knowledge of where to go and what to do with our guests. Thank you for your wonderful comments and I look forward to your return visit.

This house exceeded our expectations in every way! There were only four of us in this house that sleeps 8, but it was lovely to have so much room to ourselves. Equally, this house lends itself to be full of family & friends as it would be so much fun & ideal for special occasion get-togethers. The whole house is perfectly equipped & beautifully decorated. The upstairs open plan kitchen/diner/living room is gorgeous with a lovely warm atmosphere & the views over Braye Beach are stunning. This is THE place to stay in Alderney as far as I'm concerned, & if I could give it 10 stars I would! Lesley (the owner) is lovely & very attentive. She wants all of her guests to enjoy the house to the maximum & goes the extra mile to ensure this happens. Lesley meets you & shows you around & explains everything that you need to know. She also pops in before you depart to check that everything was OK during your stay. We enjoyed our stay so much that we are already planning our next visit. As every reviewer on Tripadvisor has given this property a full five stars, I don't think anymore needs to be said!

Absolutely fantastic holiday, from the moment we walked through the door we all felt relaxed. The property is wonderful, only draw back the kitchen a little high tech for the amount of people going into it. Bath robes and towels provided proving a lovely touch as baggage allowance only 15 kg. lots of hidden extras like torches umbrellas not that we needed them. Alderney is a beautiful unspoilt island and pipedreamer was just perfect. unfourtanatly a week wasn't long enough to finish the 1000 piece jigsaw

I am absolutely delighted that you all had such a fantastic, relaxing time and that Pipedreamer ticked the boxes for you, providing you with such a comfortable and restful stay. I am however curious as to what the draw back was regarding the kitchen. There were eight in your party, the maximum we can accommodate, and the kitchen is generously equipped with two ovens, a grill, microwave, 5 ring gas hob, fridge, freezer, wine cooler, full size dishwasher plus the usual kettle, toaster, pots, pans, ample quality crockery etc. We continually strive to improve our facilities and very much look forward to your return again next summer! Fingers crossed we can order up some more spectacular weather again for then! :-)

“Dream House”
Reviewed May 28, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

Absolutely fantastic. The photo shows how wonderful, cosy and spacious the house. Reality was even better. We came here for a family reunion and had a super time. We sat on the balcony when the sun was out, chatting, drinking, laughing, admiring the wonderful sea view, the stunning sunsets in the evening. All the latest facilities indoors made life very easy and relaxing. The jaccuzi bath for 2 was impressive and a delight to have. This house is looked after, by the owners, with great care and love and it makes it even more homely and special. It is a very happy place which I would highly recommend to family or friends who wish to spend a few days on the beautiful and most friendly little island Alderney.

Thank you for your extremely kind comments, we are delighted you had such an enjoyable time and that Pipedreamer suited your family requirements so well. From what you say, our motto ‘Relax..

Our ‘little extra touches’ are designed to ensure you feel at home during your stay, before leaving happy and relaxed, knowing there will be a warm welcome awaiting you should you return again some day.

“Beautiful House and location”
Reviewed January 5, 2012 for a stay in December 2011

Myself and my family have recently returned from spending Christmas and New Year at Pipedreamer, the house itself is no stranger to us as it was my nieces childhood home and it was lovely for her to go back there, the house has changed in parts and is absolutely perfect for a holiday let, it is very well equipped, I dont think there was anything that we needed that it didnt have, the owners seem to have thought of everything, there were 8 of us staying there and the house itself feels like it could hold 8 more it is so spacious. The weather wasnt great while we were there but we didnt expect it to be, we went to Alderney to see my parents and extended family who live there and pipedreamer was a perfect location. I wouldnt hesitate to stay there again and to recommend it to anyone. The nearest beach is a short walk away as is the nearest supermarket and pub.
Alderney is a beautiful Island with fantastic beaches that even in the height of the summer never get packed, food can be on the expensive side but the island is worth it. We ate at at Nelly Grays which is one of my favourite Indian restaurants, also the food at the Harbour lights just down the road is well worth a visit.

Be prepared to having to pay for the laundry bill and take your own towels or/and bedding if you want to save some money,

As regards to the steep hill I can imagine it would be a challenge for many and car hire may be needed, we didnt nick name it cardiac hill when my family lived there for nothing.

Happy holidays.

We are delighted to have helped make your Christmas and New Year break so enjoyable and to re-acquaint you and your relatives with their former home. I'm so pleased you all had such a lovely time together!

The house is now about eight years old and we have enjoyed tweaking it here and there to ensure the comfort and enjoyment of our guests. We can't do much about the steep hill unfortunately, but it does have one huge advantage... the view is SOOOO worth it when you get to our house at the top!!

Alderney is intoxicating at any time of the year don't you agree - the more you get, the more you want! And irrespective of good weather, it holds enormous charm for all ages, therefore I hope we will be able to welcome you back before too long.

Very best wishes to you all for 2012.

A really relaxing holiday in late October. The weather was very kind with opportunities to ride bikes, walk, play golf and run. Beaches were empty, the resident population kind and helpful and the air travel with Aurigny to Southampton spot on!

A really relaxing spot. The house was immaculate with good attention to little details. Bedrooms were spotless and the top floor for eating, relaxing and cooking very spacious with breath-taking views over Braye Harbour. House layout was good for 2 families. Our party comprised teenagers and older somethings! It all worked very well.

Ate out at Jack's Bistro for afternoon tea (excellent food and staff) and Nellie Gray's for a birthday treat in the evening where we were given our own private annexe!

go and stay.

The one side nothing to do with the house is the cost of air travel to get there. Book very early for the cheapest flights. (Around £120 each return to the mainland)

Your kind comments are very much appreciated and we are delighted to hear that the accommodation suited your requirements. The open plan living area certainly makes for a convivial space and with Alderney's pleasant Autumn weather, the balcony provides a superb spot to admire those views!

The island has much to offer throughout the year and with the golf course and Braye Beach only five minutes walk from the house, I'm glad you enjoyed the location. Both Jack's and Nellie Grays are indeed worthy of your praise, with many more fine restaurants available for you to discover on your next visit...

Travel costs can indeed be an issue therefore I agree wholeheartedly, book in plenty of time to secure those cheaper deals. We look forward to welcoming you again next year!
