Beautiful, spacious and quirky.

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous stay. Perfect location, plenty of parking. Lovely house, huge in fact, ideal for extended family and friends. Card and wine on arrival, very thoughtful gesture. Enormous cooker and plenty of space to sit and eat together.

Good location, roomy, but rather shabby

  • 2 of 5

The house was conveniently situated within walking distance of the centre of Abersoch and local beaches, and an excellent touring centre. Inside, the house was rather disappointing. No working light in the large (dark) hallway although we changed the bulb, according to one of our party, an electrician there was a fault. There was no "Welcome Pack" with local emergency numbers nor any details of how the heating, cooker, etc worked. This was very annoying. We had difficulties in contacting the owner, who was helpful once eventually contacted. Our major compaint was the hassle of having to bring our own bedding and towels. At the price paid, this was very poor service. Some of the rooms looked tired, but the beds were very comfortable. Cleaning seemed not up to standard with a collection of cobwebs left for some time in the front room. Without our knowledge, scafolders turned up on the Thursday to set up outside the front of the house, hence the patio door was out of use.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and feedback - it is appreciated, even if not terribly glowing on this occasion. Please see below my updates / comments: 1. Cleaning - wholly unacceptable. I'm very frustrated by this, and it appears to be a continual battle to maintain the standards when I'm not present. We have decided to employ a Contract Cleaning company to do twice yearly deep detailed cleans to supplement the weekly/pre/post guest cleans. 2. Bulbs out - ditto above. I've discussed this with our housekeeper. 3. Welcome Pack - slightly confused on this, as we now operate an electronic Welcome Pack with all the details online. You should have received a number of emails highlighting this via the HomeAway website. This is partly the process from HomeAway but also suits us, as the original hard copy always looked a mess and was always out of date. The contact details for myself and our Housekeeper where also in this electronic system. 4. Linen - we have investigated linen on a couple of occasions , as have been asked once or twice previously. The costs ended up being prohibitive due to short turn rounds, costs of duplicate sets of linen, maintenance and cleaning / bed making costs. It was coming out at circa £200 per rental, which was prohibitive. 5. Cost / Value of the Rental - I'm afraid we are very much on the market rent for Abersoch taking into account the size, location and condition of the property. We are also very booked up with over 30 rentals per annum. 6. Scaffolding - sometime my mind boggles at things like this. I'm afraid this is simply a mess up and it arrived a week early! We are doing some works to the roof windows on the top floor so we can complete the redecoration of these two rooms, and it was all meant to start at the end of this week! Finally, we are continually striving to develop and improve our wonderful family holiday house with ALL rental profits going straight back into the property. We are have just had a NEST electronic thermostat installed, new blackout curtains to bedroom 3 and various other general decoration / touching up. Thanks, James

Great seaside property

  • 4 of 5

August 2016. We stayed at Island View for 2 weeks; 8 adults and 5 children. This was our second visit. The kitchen is much improved with a professional standard double range cooker and new fridge freezer. There were new single beds, all clean and comfortable. Shower doors in bedroom 2 need fixing. A good place for children and near to the beach.

Fantastic, large property in a great location

  • 5 of 5

This is a well proportioned house with good facilities. We found it had everything we needed and was a fantastic base for a weekend in Abersoch.

It's a very short walk into town, with plenty of shops, bars and restaurants within easy reach. Unfortunately the weather was not kind to us during our stay and so didn't get to visit the beach but again this is within walking distance.

I wouldn't hesitate to book Island view again if staying in Abersoch. For the price, I really can't fault it.

Island View

  • 4 of 5

Excellent location and a great family house. A downstairs toilet would have been v useful. The door on the shower in bedroom 2 needs some attention and

bedroom 3 has a loose loo seat.

We had a lovely week collecting shells, going for walks and drinking at the pub! Abersoch has a great Thai restaurant!

Well situated, 7-bedroom multi-bathroom house in trendy Abersoch.

  • 4 of 5

I chose Island View for a big family party in early July 2016 for 2 reasons:

- I have a fondness for Abersoch based around my grandparents having retired there in the 1950's, so I spent childhood holidays there.

- Island View gave us the best combination of location, accommodation and cost of any of the 6-8 Gwynedd coastal properties I short-listed and visited.

Abersoch was always an attractive place, but evidently in recent years it has also become smart, trendy even. My step-daughter who is Regional Director of an upmarket retailer in Australia was impressed by the shops, even saying she almost felt uncool!

The house is well appointed but comfortably unfussy, with e.g. painted easy-care floors. So quickly mopped or swept; ideal with small children.

Having to provide our own linen was something of a challenge for us as hosts, as 9 out of the 14 occupants flew in long-haul and were reluctant to bring such things. We did manage of course. I do understand that linen provision would be a hassle for the owner and would put the price up, so I guess it's a trade-off.
