Very Good

“Perfectly situated for beach holiday”

Reviewed 24 Jul 2017

The apartment is literally just across the road from the beach and the area where the lifeguards patrol. The private off street parking is a great bonus as Sandsend parking is hard to find in holiday season. The apartment was very clean especially where it matters most: bathrooms and kitchen. Bedding was immaculate with a plentiful supply of spotless towels. We had taken our own washing up requisites but need not have as everything we needed was supplied including condiments,sauces, sugar,tea,coffee etc as well as cling film,cooking foil and cooking oil--the supplies were comprehensive. The beach cafe was just over the road with a varied menu and fast efficient service. At the other beach side cafe my daughter even managed to find coffee made with soya milk. We enjoyed a trip round the bay on the Endeavour replica, Whitby Museum-very interesting displays- and the Captain Cook museum. For food the Humble Pie and Mash shop had speedy service, delicious food and was reasonably priced. The Fisherman's wife was also very good as witnessed by the queue waiting at the door. The open top bus tour --one payment and you could ride around all day stopping at places of interest- gave a good overview of the Whitby area and helped to orientate us. ( Sit at the front at the top and marvel at the manoeuvering skill of the driver !) Altogether one of the best holiday rentals we have ever enjoyed.

“Driftwood Apartment in Sandsend”

Reviewed 21 Jun 2017

Excellent location with sea views to match. Well equipped with ample space for up to 7 occupants. The parking (free) for 2 vehicles is an added bonus. Also good bus service is readily available. Can highly recommend the property for a holiday stay.

“Great apartment!”

Reviewed 10 Jun 2017

We love Sandsend and Driftwood apartment is ideally situated there: just across the road from the beach. The apartment is on the first floor and the large bay window in the lounge provides spectacular views across the bay (so much so that binoculars are provided for guests' use). The outside of the property doesn't do justice to what is a charming and comfortable apartment and although there is no garden, with the beach on your doorstep you don't need more. There are three bedrooms, one with ensuite and family bathroom, so is plenty of space for a large family. The kitchen is well-stocked with everything you could need for cooking meals and the lounge is pleasant and comfortable. There are two dedicated parking places which is a real advantage, as Sandsend gets very busy at times. There are regular buses into Whitby, only 10 mins away, and Sandsend has two cafes, a bistro and a pub serving great grub. If you like a small resort with nothing more than beach, river & ducks, Sandsend is perfect! Driftwood Apartment is probably the nicest holiday properties we have stayed in and we shall certainly be back.

“Perfect location, tasteful and well-equipped apartment”

Reviewed 27 Jul 2013

We read great reviews and saw the lovely photos, but even still, it was lovelier than expected. The sea views are spectacular. The apartment is spacious and nicely decorated. There are lots of nice features and the kitchen is well- equipped. It was clean and the beds were comfy. The showers were powerful. The area is fantastic for things to do and places to eat. Everything is good quality. The only improvements could be blackout blinds in the double rooms and a ceiling fan in the living room, as it was great weather and very warm! Wifi would also be good. Otherwise, we really enjoyed our stay and will book again.

“Brilliant apartment, well maintained with thoughtful touches, ideal for family or friends getaway.”

Reviewed 2 Nov 2012

I have stayed in this apartment twice now. It is clean and tidy with nicely finished rooms. Ideal spot with stunning sea views, parking outside and easy reach of Whitby. The kitchen is well equipped and has everything you need. Beds are large and comfortable and bathroom has a good shower, large bath and is very clean. Recommended for families(I took my grandson) and friends - great for a trip away together.

“Highly Recommended !! Fantastic Apartment, Excellent Location.”

Reviewed 23 Aug 2012

We have previously stayed at Driftwood Apartment and were eager to return this year. The homely apartment is great for adults and children alike (our two are 5 and 22 months) and is so very well equipped with lots of extra touches that really add to the stay. The toys, games, dvds & books were greatly appreciated by the boys too. The beach is lovely & so close. We went down every day and we even found some fossils!! Great location for day trips out too; we visited Whitby, Scarborough and Filey. Have already booked for next year!

“Fabulous apartment, with excellent location and amazing sea views”

Reviewed 25 Jul 2012

Driftwood apartment is lovely. Well decorated and furnished with lovely homely touches, and very well equipped with everything you need. It is also extremely clean, with lots of lovely towels and bed linen. The location is superb, with sea views from every room, and very close to the pub, restaurants and cafes. The 2 parking spaces are a real bonus. Myself, my husband, my parents, and our 92 year old grandfather all loved it, and would happily recommend it to others.

“Brilliant apartment, perfect for a family holiday and very good value.”

Reviewed 14 Jul 2012

We know Sandsend quite well and I would say that this apartment has a premier location regarding the beach, pub, cafes,shops etc and the sea views from every room are wonderful. Six of us,varying in age from 69 to 6yrs, found the apartment to be spacious, very comfortable and amazingly well equipped (small touches, like the basket of binoculars for observing shipping activity, were very appreciated, as was the bottle of wine and the chocs!) Compared to previous stays in Sandsend when parking has been a nightmare, the two parking spaces opposite made life so much easier.

“Fabulous apartment with fantastic views!”
