“Home away from home!”
Reviewed March 3, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

We had a really wonderful stay here. The house itself was lovely and well furnished. It was cosy, spacious, clean and close to town centre. It's got all the big and little things you need which gave that really homely feel. The beds were nicely laid and very comfortable. Despite being close to town, the place was quiet which really helped since we had a one year old baby. Mary and her husband were also extremely sweet and hospitable. Overall very very happy we chose this place.

“Perfect little getaway”
Reviewed February 13, 2014 for a stay in November 2013

This place is well worth the money!
We chose this spot because it was pet friendly and it certainly did not disappoint.
The house was clean, tidy and well laid out. There was plenty of space for a small family and we found it was great to return yo after a busy day shopping in York.
The owner was very helpful and friendly and we hope to return there again soon.

Thank you, and thank you for leaving the house so immaculate - finding the bed stripped, the rubbish out AND the fire cleaned was a pleasant surprise!

“Perfect place to stay when visiting York”

After searching for a suitable place to accommodate myself and two adult family members I found the perfect property close to the centre of York. The house is on a lovely, quiet street with plenty of available parking (permit supplied). The house has everything and more than you could need for a short break, although with so many places to eat close by we hardly used the kitchen facilities. All the rooms were cosy and welcoming; I had the loft room which had a lovely comfortable bed and bedding. I am already looking for availability for my next short break. Thank you Mary for your help and your suggestions in response to my queries on places to eat. Hope to visit again soon.

“Perefct place for a break in York”
Reviewed January 9, 2014 for a stay in January 2014

I stayed in this house with my little boy (21 months), my sister and her 2 children (6 and 10) This is a beautiful house perfectly situated on the edge of the city, witihin 5 minutes you were in the centre of York yet the street was so quiet and peaceful. There was plenty of room for all of us and the kitchen is well equipped if you wish to cook whilst there. My nephew loved having the en suite attic room to his self!

The owners were friendly, helpful and welcoming and we had a thoroughly enjoyable stay there.

Highly recommended and we'd love to stay there again in the future.

“Cosy and well equipped house in great location”
Reviewed January 8, 2014 for a stay in January 2014

The house was lovely and warm with a real cottagey feel to it, with a wood burning stove and comfy furniture downstairs, and a really well equipped kitchen. All the beds were really comfy and the bedrooms spacious; a young teenager or kid would love the attic room! Bathroom was new, everywhere was clean and there were lots of personal touches to make the house feel cosy. Location is brilliant - just outside the walls - and there was never a problem parking for our two cars. The owners were helpful, even to the point of sending on some of my belongings that i'd left there in error! Thank you!

Review for 12 Waverely Street York.

We were the first visitors to this property which is conveniently located within a few minutes walk off Monkgate which gives you access to the City centre. We parked our car outside the house and did not move it again until we left to drive home!
The house is well appointed and has everything you need; the kitchen is well equipped; having a dishwasher is especially useful. The whole house had been tastefully decorated, retaining its Victorian character. The lounge/dining room is very comfortable and has a wood burner, the weather was cold but we did not feel the need to use it! We have stayed in many self catering properties; this one is at the top of the list.
York is a nightmare for parking but there is no problem on Waverley Street as there is a parking permit, not only can you walk into town, there is a Sainsbury’s supermarket 10 minutes away. We were most impressed with the house and have already booked for next year!

“Just Perfect”
Reviewed January 2, 2014 for a stay in November 2013

I booked to stay at Waverley to celebrate my 30th birthday weekend and couldn't have wished for a better stay. Communication throughout the booking process was excellent and made the experience so easy. The house is beautiful, clean and equip with everything you could need for a weekend stay or longer.
The location of the house is excellent and walking distance from York Center (not even 5 minutes away) so is suitable for everyone.
We had a truly enjoyable stay and would happily book to stay at Waverley again....it was PERFECT and would highly recommend staying here.
