Sets the standard for the perfect property rental experience!

  • 5 of 5

This property nails it-Mary was out on the street to meet our taxi when we arrived in York; she escorted us to the flat, sat with us and gave us an overview of where we were in relation to points of interest, and provided us with an orientation of the property. It was clean, quiet, and well appointed. Everything we needed was there. We were so tired we didn’t even see that she had set the table for tea and lemon tarts! What a greeting!!!! Finally, location, location, location! The flat is located within walking distance of absolutely everything wonderful in York. Even the grocery store was literally steps away. I was amazed! Well done. Highly recommend this property, we could not have asked for a better experience.

Excellent and quiet location

  • 5 of 5

Immaculately clean, really handy parking space, and a three to four minute walk into town. The house has everything you would need, is well equipped and in a really convenient place. A perfect location for all of York's attractions. Highly recommended.

Easy booking from the USA. My husband and I stayed 8 nights and could have stayed more

Mary was at the flat to greet us on our arrival, and only a phone call away if we needed anything.

Thank you Mary and Phillip for a wonderful stay

I had booked this apartment as a surprise for my husband and it did not disappoint. The flat was immaculate throughout and perfectly situated for a city break in York. Mary good not have been more helpful and even arranged for some shopping to be done beforehand so we did not have to worry about buying in any provisions.

A perfect stay all round.

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful warm and cozy welcome from our hosts only added to the pleasurable stay in the compact and very clean apartment! With the added bonus of being only a few minutes walk from the city centre and off street parking the location was just perfect for exploring York. A very enjoyable experience! And one to recommend to others.

Het was een top appartement waar alles in aanwezig was en de eigenaar had er voor gezorgd dat er aan niets ontbrak. Zeker een aanrader.
