This is our 2nd stay and we had another wonderful time with our 4 young lively grandchildren.
The position is perfect for our needs within walking distance of all Filey has to offer so we parked the car in a spot visible from the apartment and never used it all week.
The facilities are home from home .The kitchen and its contents are perfect for a self catering family and incredibly child user friendly to include little person crockery, cutlery, books, toys,buckets and spades( a bonus for us).
It is up 3 flights of stairs but this gives the advantage of exceptional sea views from the small balcony.The perfect place to sit and chill of an evening once the children had settled.
The communication from booking to leaving is faultless.
I would definately recommend and re -book this accomodation again
Filey is lovely, great beach, views and shops. This is not a luxurious apartment, I booked for 4 adults and 1 child, the children's bedroom has a bunk bed consisting of a lower double and upper single beds . This is only suitable for a family with 3 young children. My teenage daughter had to sleep on the floor using the spare mattress which was ripped and stained, we could not use the main bath or shower due to a leak, the front door lock was very stiff so It was very difficult to lock/unlock. The apartment is on the upper floor and so there are a lot of stairs, unfortunately there is no natural light in the hallway and so rely on the lights. The lights are on a timer but they didn't work so we had to negotiate the stairs in almost complete darkness which was very hazardous to us all. The stairway stunk of smoke from neighbours downstairs.
While we were out on day trips people were letting themselves into the apartment, I understand that you need access to carry out repairs, however I believe that neighbours had access to the apartment and on one evening someone opened the door to our apartment and then left when they heard there was someone in.
I was very uncomfortable with how unsecure our personal belongings were.
I would definitely recommend anyone to stay in Filey but I for one would not book this apartment again.
We stayed here for a long weekend in May. It was a fab location and a lovely flat. We parked up Friday and didnt move the car until we left on Monday!! The kids loved their own room and the space for the family was great. We had a minor issue with the dooe lock, but as soon as i emailed the owner we had an instant reply and a solution. Great view from the balcony and has sun until late evening, perfect G&T spot. We will most definitely come back. Thank you.
We were understanding that an element of the cost for leaving the condition of the premises would be returned if we left the premises in good condition. We did apart from the refrigerator which developed a malfunction due solely due to wear and tear and not of our doing but it appears as we have not been reimbursed we are being made blameworthy which we dispute.
Good location. Very clean and tidy, modern décor. Great communication from owner throughout the booking process and the stay.
