Fantastic home, GREAT location, HIGHLY recommended

  • 5 of 5

We spent 3 months at this property while my husband was doing a sabbatical semester at the University and I was working remotely from my job in the US. Our twin boys were 4.

It's a very comfortable and functional home and we had a great stay. Youseph was a great, prompt, attentive and approachable landlord. The kitchen was well stocked and we did a lot of cooking while there. The location was AMAZING. Castle Park is beautiful and the Castle Park Playground, right behind the house, is the biggest, most amazing playground we've ever seen.

The downstairs closet was very well stocked with balls, Frisbee, an awesome marble run toy that our boys (and we!) loved to play with. There was a selection of DVDs as well.

The washing machine and dryer were very convenient, and when we arrived the house was well stocked with soap, detergent, etc. When the dishwasher broke, Youseph had it replaced immediately.

The dining room has a French door to a path that leads to the backyard, and there is also a door at the back of the kitchen to the yard. There is an adorable little sun-room (conservatory, I guess?) outside. I sometimes took conference calls from the backyard- WiFi reached out there and was pretty good throughout the whole house.

We found the beds perfectly comfortable, and plenty of sheets. Decent storage space in the bathrooms in medicine cabinets and under the sink.

The only negative thing I might mention about the house was that there wasn't much art on the walls, which made it feel a bit barren when we first arrived. We ended up hanging a lot of the "art" our boys made in school, which made it homer. The front room has only a small rug and leather couches (plus some handy side tables and a display cabinet), which made it feel less cozy at first, but the plus side of leather couches in a rental is you don't wonder what's hiding in the fibers. We did end up spending a considerable amount of time in the room, working on laptops and watching TV.

I can't say enough good things about the location of the house. The street is lovely, there's a great local pub right at the end, and Castle Park and the High Street are an easy walk. You can also walk to the train station for easy access to London. (9 min walk to Colchester town, slightly longer to Colchester where you can get the express train.) Also easy walking distance are many museums, cafés, restaurants, etc. All in all, a great place! I would definitely stay there again and recommend it to a friend!

A cosy house in ideal location.

  • 4 of 5

A lovely surprise of a Christmas hamper

awaited us upon our arrival at this well placed house. The property was well maintained and very clean and fully equipped for a family Christmas, with a modern kitchen offering top of the range facilities. The house was very warm with a constant supply of hot water and the use of a washing machine and tumble dryer were a bonus. The house is well situated with only a short walk to Colchester Town and the Castle Park and Gardens were a delight to walk through. The Owner is very hands on and will try to provide any extra things you may require. The only slight problem is with Parking but this may have been more of a problem due to the Festive period. We would not hesitate to stay here again.

Owner's Response: Thank you Margit. It was a pleasure to host you at the property and we look forward to welcoming you again. Just to clarify the property is a house and not an apartment. Youseph

Because I stayed in Colchester for short term period (3 months), the property was the best chance for me. The owners (Melike and Youseph) were extremely interested in our requirements and were keen to meet them as soon as possible.We made a good relationship with them.The location of the property is Perfect. You can reach any destination by walking. The fascinating Castle Park is also located just behind the property. Thank you for everything.

Best Regards.

Fully equipped, clean, convenient, good landlord.

  • 5 of 5

The property accommodated my family (2 adults and 3 children) perfectly within 3 bedrooms. The house if fully equipped including the Kitchen (microwave, washing machine, dryer ... etc), lounge (LCD TV, tea tables ... etc). Convenience is another plus. The kids loved playing in castle park which is 2 minutes walk from the property. Three more minutes walk across the park and we are in at town centre with all the stores and restaurants. Train and coach stations are close by to arrange a visit to London which we did on one weekend. The landlord was genuine and very helpful. He was polite and understood our needs. He goes out of his way to help.

I will definitely come back with my family to 53 castle road whenever we decide to visit Colchester in the future.
