House very equipped for all our needs
Lots of space. Gorgeous views overlooking the sea.
Ideal for family holidays
Could not fault this beautiful house, had everything we needed for our 4 generation family holiday. Good facilities in the kitchen for catering for a large group, loved the large dining table which we could all sit around comfortably. Lovely lounge upstairs with enough seating for everybody. One of the best holiday homes w e have stayed in.
Bay View was ideal for our extended family group -ages 7 to 78. Jane was very helpful and answered our phone queries straightaway. Very comfortable, well equipped house - lovely location on the seafront with beautiful views across to Harlech. We had a great time.
Beautiful, family friendly property.
Absolutely loved this property. The interior is beautiful and ideal for large groups. We couldn't have had a nicer break.
The house is in a fantastic position and is beautifully kept and extremely comfortable. Having not been to Criccieth for about 45 years, it was good to revisit old haunts and lovely to stay at Bayview.
The property was beautiful and done to a very high standard. It was easy hosting a large group there and everyone was delighted with their stay.
Thank you for your lovely review Courtney. I'm so pleased you had a great time over Christmas.
