“Brilliant holiday in Shaw Way, Mountbatten”
Reviewed May 29, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

We stayed at 45 Shaw Way Mountbatten from Saturday 18th to Saturday 25th May 2013. The house had everything that we needed for an excellent holiday and although you are not far from the Barbican, Mountbatten is very quiet. We found the house very clean and tidy with all the equipment listed on the website in working order. Simon had kindly left a bottle of wine for us which was much appreciated.

We used both the double bedrooms – ground floor with patio doors and views across the marina that had a small en-suite and on the third floor that had a spacious Jack and Jill bathroom and good sea views. There is also a third bedroom with twin beds. The house has a comfortable relaxing living/dining room with balcony and patio doors together with a separate large well fitted modern kitchen. On the ground floor there is also a laundry room and another w.c. The accommodation was excellent and exactly as described in the advert.

As we had good weather a couple of nights we used the BBQ that it’s on the ground floor balcony – good for watching the boats whilst cooking! The view across the marina to the harbour was lovely.

The property has parking outside for two cars. When going into Plymouth city centre we often used the Water Taxi – just a ten minute walk away – that takes you directly from Mountbatten into the Barbican. The taxi runs every 30 mins. Fabulous views across Plymouth sound from the top of Shaw Way.

Just a couple of minutes’ walk from the house is The Bridge Restaurant and Bar – great place for just a drink or something to eat.

This was our first visit to the property but I'm sure we will return.

“Everything you need and much more!”
Reviewed May 10, 2013 for a stay in April 2013

Stayed here for a week with my parents and 20 year old son whilst visiting from New Zealand. Simon was great to deal with from start to finish. The house was warm and cosy, and equipped with everything you need for a relaxing holiday, good value too. It was a great location, surprisingly quiet, with good walks, shops and restaurants near by, but the best bit has to be the fabulous view over the marina to the Plymouth Hoe and the Barbican, always something to watch whatever the weather or time of day. Make sure you take the little Mount Batten Ferry over to the Barbican to check out the arty shops and great range of restaurants.

“Brilliant”
Reviewed March 11, 2013 for a stay in March 2013

From the first contact with Simon he was very helpful, booked the house for myself my daughter and 12 week old grand-daughter. The house was lovely, view great for watching the boats go by. I slept in the downstairs bedroom and for me the temperature was fine, just kept the door closed and it was cosy and warm. Would stay again.

“Great location, great views”
Reviewed March 3, 2013 for a stay in February 2013

Just had one week's stay in this lovely house. The windows look directly out over the marina and though there wasn't much boating activity this time of year there were regular passing ships in Plymouth Sound to watch. The house was very clean and comfortable and SImon, the owner lives locally and was very friendly and helpful. It was a short walk to the coastal path and also to the water taxi that ferries you directly over to The Barbican - so no need to worry about car parking. We would definitely return there.
