“Stunning view of the bay”
Reviewed December 12, 2016 for a stay in December 2016

Beautiful well furnished and maintained house. Even although the property was over four floors, this was not a problem with two very small children. The views overlooking Scarborough bay from all of the front windows was outstanding. This really was home from home the property had everything you would need whilst being away from home. The double beds were extremely comfortable. There is also parking provided with the property both outside on the road with a permit provided, as well as a space around the corner in a car park which in the height of season would be essential.

“Immaculate condition with some nice touches.”
Reviewed July 14, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We stayed here with a baby and a toddler and grandparents. On arrival the house was immaculate and there were some lovely touches such as tea, coffee, milk in the fridge and cleaning products to hand.

The boiler wasn't working properly when we initially arrived but the owners rectified it really quickly.

The only negatives were the stair gates were a bit fiddly and you had to take the whole thing off every time you wanted to open/ close it and the check in time was 4pm, which was quite late and then meant we were rushing around trying to feed two hungry children when we got there.

Thank you for your kind review.

We shall look at changing the stairgates to something that is easier to use.

Check in time unfortunately cannot be any earlier than 4 pm as it takes our cleaner over 5 hours to clean the property & perform the weekly maintenance.

Kind regards

Micah.

“Lovely family house with everything you need in a great location.”
Reviewed July 11, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

This was a wonderful place to stay for an extended family holiday. The house is large and bright with excellent furnishings and bathrooms, good quality linen and lounges. Everything feels fresh and clean.

The kitchen is exceptionally good for this kind of place: great range of pans, an espresso machine, family sized fridge, good knives.

It is well located with sea view from both sides and is just minutes walk from everything you will want to do.
Highly recommended.

“Fantastic property allowing freedom from hotel rooms”
Reviewed November 2, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We booked this property as having a 7 people would require 3 hotel rooms if we stayed in a hotel. Booking something like this gives you the freedom that you just can't get from hotel rooms. The property was in a great location with excellent views. Over 4 floors there are a lot of stairs, but the 3 yr old and 5 yr old loved the space and freedom to play. It is close to the town centre, the castle, Peasholm Park, Sealife Centre, beach and play park. The property was of excellent quality and we would recommend to others if they are looking for somewhere to stay in the area.

“Wonderful seaside location in a tall building”
Reviewed September 13, 2015 for a stay in September 2015
1
person found this review helpful

This is a wonderful place for a large family group to stay. A tall building with wide and direct sea views, modern and interesting decor (I liked the Edward Hopper seaside paintings in the rooms). It's very fully equipped, even including stairgates, high chair, Sky TV and Broadband. In every way it's very comfortable and attractive to be in. If you use the topmost double room you will have 55 stairs to climb from the street, and the master bedroom is two floors up. But as long as you are OK with stairs, some a bit narrow and steep, it's no problem. Car parking is arranged nearby.
