We booked this house for a hen sleepover party and it was perfect for the occasion. Plenty of room for 11 of us to stay and the pool went down a real treat!
We really enjoyed our stay!
8 of us came down to stay at this house for one night in September. We came for my boyfriends 25th birthday and it was brilliant. The house was clean and there was plenty of room for all of us! The pool was loads of fun and we spent most of our stay in there, the only thing that would have made our stay even more enjoyable would have been if the hot tub was working but we were aware before we went that it was out of order and the pool kept us entertained anyway. The house is only a short taxi ride from York centre, and there are a couple of pubs just around the corner, I would say about a 5-10 minute walk. I would definitely stay again, and everyone who stayed with us said the same.
This is a fantastic house, you won't be disappointed!
I stayed here with a group of friends and we had a great time - the house provided everything we needed for a comfortable two night stay.
You'll have great fun exploring the rooms, including the secret room! but I won't give too much away ;)
It's a shame the jacuzzi is no longer working but the beautiful swimming pool more than made up for it.
Lucie was a very informative host. She provided us with all the information we needed then left us to get on with our weekend - perfect! Thanks Lucie!
I highly recommend this house.
The pool was beautiful
the Kitchen was great, the living room and other feature room were wonderful.
Really felt like we were in a maze finding new rooms all around.
Fresh towels were left out for us, and the beds wee clean. Thanks.
Cons (Not Many)
One of the main bedrooms has 3 glass walls. Would have liked curtains for this room.
The hot water was not initially working. (But making a quick phone call to the Landlord sorted this out)
Some of the rooms had not been used in a while and hence had cobwebs in the corners
There seemed to be no common design between all the bedrooms . Seemed a little out-of-sorts
ONE THE WHOLE:
Really liked this place and would probably book this place again if I had other guests coming in the future. Lots of space and lots of fun. The Landlord was very helpful and co-operative. Thanks
Just a shame the jaccuzzi wasn't working. Next time I am hoping
Had a brilliant weekend at this house. We were slightly disappointed that the hot-tub was out of action (in fairness Lucie had warned us) but having the pool made up for it.
The house is 5 double bedrooms and lots of bathrooms. We stayed 2 nights and apart from Saturday when we walked into York (about 25 minutes gentle stroll) we didn't need to go far. It's true that the house felt a little bare though I guess this is partly due to its being for sale.
We ordered takeout from the fantastic Mumbai Lounge (they don't deliver) on Saturday evening and just had a truly amazing weekend. Family fun all round.
Jonathan - though I think it was mainly Lucie - sent a lovely message thanking us for leaving the house in such good order. We wish we could have stayed a little longer.
Would highly recommend this place.
The reservation was canceled 14 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
The house itself was as fantastic as it looks in the pictures. Unfortunately it didn't look like anybody had cleaned the place before our arrival - there was washing up to be done and the place was generally not very clean at all.
There were also no curtains up in many of the main bedrooms, which was a bit of an issue come morning! Plus, it claims on the description that there are 'real beds' in each room when actually a few of them are airbeds.
In fairness, after I called to complain and ask for our cleaning fee back we were offered a £40 refund (which doesn't amount to much when there's so many sharing of course, but it's the gesture that counts).
Great house, just needs a little TLC and a good clean!
This house is absolutely amazing. I organised a weekend away for my friend's hen do/bachelorette party and the house ended up being the main event. It's not just that it has an in-door heated pool with a hot tub, it's also an incredible house with huge glass windows overlooking really beautiful scenic views.
The room with the pool and hot tub is also heated which is nice, as you actually feel like you're on holiday... rather than up north in the cold :).
My friend has already booked to go back in June and I'm thinking of doing the same. You will not be disappointed in this house!
One thing to note is that the house is quite minimalist - while you'll have access to towels and some kitchen ware, there's not a whole lot else (there's of course a tv and a cinema room). This did not impact our stay at all, but it's worth noting in case you need lots of 'things' :)
Great place to stay, all arrangements were done really smoothly and it was just a comfortable place to stay, could really feel at home but with the added benefits of some luxury. Far better than staying in a hotel for a similar price!
Also, in the immediate area there are a couple of nice pubs/restaurants and a small shop so although it's worth a trip into York, you can just stay local if you want and enjoy the house.
Wonderful guest, very friendly, welcome anytime
Mr Cainer came to us at short notice and was the perfect guest. He and his family would be most welcome to stay again.
I had so much communication with Jonothan prior to entering the flat that i had no problem entrusting him with my entire flat and keys while i was away. His family were clean and considerate of the flat and left it immaculate xx
Jonathan is one of the best guest I've ever welcomed in my apartments. It was very interesting to meet Jonathan's'familly! They are friendly, respect Airbnb rules and let the apartment very clean :) they would be welcome in Paris whenever they want!
Une famille très sympathique et souriante, personne de confiance
