A smashing find in a lovely village. The flat is in a great spot just across from the beach. It had absolutely everything we needed and was nice and spacious, with plenty of parking.
A couple of DIY bits need sorting (floor in master bedroom, sticking door etc) but certainly nothing to spoil our break.
The weather was amazing for us and the local pubs provided a couple of tasty meals giving the chief cook and bottle washer a well earned break!
We stayed in this well equipped and attractive apartment between 24th and 28th October.
The view from the front deck is fantastic and the apartment is excellently located for the local shops, hotel and coastal walks. Also, very dog friendly.
The kitchen and bathrooms (one en suite) are all newly re-burbished and the flat was very clean. As an unexpected bonus it had a large 3D TV and Wii with several games.
Only problem was that there were signs of damp in parts of the flat, although this did not spoil our holiday. Had we been there in Summer I don't expect this would have been noticeable.
Nevertheless, good value for money.

We had three nights here at the end of June.
We found Harbour View very clean and well equipped with everything we needed.
The owner - Janet - asked my questions promptly before we arrived and was there to greet us and available on departure.
It was very quiet in the area. The view was lovely sat on the decking - peaceful and relaxing.
Would go and stay there again if returning to the area.
Worst holiday experience of my life!!! I booked this holiday with my three children and my elderley mother. Arrived at the property only to find nothing but a mess, bedding hadn't even been changed the beds were covered in black hair, floors were filthy (dirt,dog hairs and food stains and sand), kitchen work tops dirty, skirting boards dirty, bathroom dirty, there was damp in one of the bedrooms and paint was flaking off some of the walls and a rusty radiator but the property had been described as beautifully refurbished??? I could have lived with the damp and flaky paint but the problem was the general dirtiness all round the property.
We had been '' greeted '' by a man called Andy (smelling like a brewery) who let us into the property and began to show us around but when I pointed out that the place was dirty and specified what I found not to be to my satisfaction (or probably not even to the satisfaction of the dog that had been staying in the property before us), he turned very abusive and rude and threatening including saying that I was just one of those '' picky '' people. The guy clearly needs a lesson in customer services and has no respect for women and children, he scared my kids and mother with his shouting. He said he had cleaned the property the best he could but the previous customers had not left the property till twelve o'clock even though they had to vacate by ten o'clock. Now while I do not debate this, that is not my problem as the next customer. The place looked like it had just been left as it was by the previous customers, no effort had been made to make it clean and welcoming and just to put the record straight i'm not a picky person!
After three hours of waiting around after being told that the property was going to be cleaned properley, nothing had been resolved and I had no choice but to go and get a chip shop tea and make the two hour journey home.
We have received a refund but at the very least I think a contribution to the wasted petrol cost would have been a nice gesture.
I've been holidaying in Anglesey for years now and in my opinion this particular property is not worth £80 a night even if the property had been clean. Unfortunately I had left booking the holiday till late as it was a bit of a spur of the moment decision to go away and I sincerely wish I had not bothered now!!
Oh and Andy I know you said hadn't got good eyesight so I presume that is why you didn't see my wedding ring, not that it matters if your married with children or not!!!
Myself and my sister ,husbands and two children stayed in this apartment with little Eddie the dog.
We walked on the beach (which is literally over the road ) ,we walked through the woodland and the coastal path with Eddie who loved it
It rained whilst we were there in between some lovely sunshine ,on those occasions we found a fantastic little craft shop in the village that allows the children to go in and spend time making all sorts of things from pom-poms to bookbinding encouraged by the enthusiastic owner ,this and the 3D TV and the Wii kept our children fully occupied during those bits of rain
We also found in the village a lovely little cafe called Coffee Cups they have scones to die for
We loved Cemaes Bay ,this apartment is fab , loads of free parking straight behind and we didn't actually use the cars for our whole stay as everything we needed was there.
We were very sad to leave .We are definitely booking for next year and Eddies coming too ( though hopefully this time he won't eat quite so much sand !!!!)
Wow! This turned out to be a perfect and idilic stay!
The flat is fantastic, and much bigger then the pictures make out.
The kitchen was very modern and extremely well equipped, with everything you could need from chopping boards, egg cups, tea towels, ice cube trays, all the little things that you dont necessarily realise you would need until you go 'Oh, if we just had a .........', and there it was!
Master bedroom was lovely and spacious, and the shower in the wet room was amazing!!!!
The other bedrooms were at the back of the flat, so if you were travelling with another couple or children, the layout would still give you the feeling of privacy, and not make you feel like you were all jammed in, living on top of each other. The family bathroom between these other two bedrooms was again large and just what you would need.
Ample parking outside, and the front door which leads onto the kitchen has benches outside, so you can happily sit there to take off your sand covered shoes etc.
The best things about property is the location and the views. Its fantastic!
The property is less then a minutes walk from the beach, its amazing! Literally just across the road, and this gives you wonderful views of the bay from your bedroom, living room and decking. Just lovely!!! We spent hours sat on the decking that leads from the livingroom, having a drink and chatting looking out! Perfect way to relax!
There are also three pubs selling food, a chippy and a well stocked McColls with a post office and cash machine inside, together with a collection of other small shops, all within a minute or so walking, so everything was on your doorstep without the need to drive anywhere.
The property also has a 'shared' garden. This is a large gravelled area to the back of the property which looks onto the bay, leading from the decking. This was brilliant for us as we had taken a dog with us. The dog had a enclosed and safe place to have a run around whilst we were in. It may very well be a 'shared' garden, but this property is the only property that has direct access to it. If other residents were to use it they have to use a side gate. Its no guarantee that you will have it to yourself obviously, but no-one else used it while we were there, and it felt just like our own.
Janet the owner was contactable throughout our stay so if we had had any problems that was reassuring, and Andy who showed us around, was again contactable throughout. This just gave you extra confidence and reassurance.
With loads of lovely walks from the bay, a wonderful property in an excellent location, the rest of the island so accessible, and a lovely, approachable owner, I cant see why we would ever waste our time looking for anywhere else to stay in Anglesey!
We would definitely stay here again, and I have already recommended it to friends!!!
