“Great location, basic accommodation”
Reviewed 29 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We stayed at Estuary View for one week. Lovely location with a superb view over the estuary. Also very enjoyable walks close by. Convenient parking available next to house. The chalet has everything we needed but please note it basic accommodation. The shower was leaking so we didn't use it and the freezer door needed replacement that Irene kindly stated would happen end of this month. I really struggled to move our booking date with two weeks forward. I was advised by Irene to cancel the booking and to rebook. That meant I had to pay £30 fee to Tripadvisor and £50 fee to the owner. To be fair she did pay half the amount back to me after some discussions and we did agree the £25 extra could be given to the cleaner because of our little dog that may be meant more intense cleaning needed? afterwards? All said we did enjoy Wales and the pretty surroundings and this is perfect budget/basic accommodation for a family of four. Please note dogs need to be on the lead the whole time when they outside in the establishement and the chalet has an electricity meter that works with £1 coins. We used around £20.00 during our stay but it should be a lot cheaper during the summer when the heaters aren't needed.

Thank you for taking the trouble to write a review Renza. I am glad you found so much to like about the chalet. It is not much help to you I know, but when you left we fitted (as planned) a brand new fridge, cooker and kitchen floor and the plumber came to do a temporary fix on the shower cubical until it can be properly refitted. I understand how galling it is to lose money when you change dates but that is the way TripAdvisor works and it is in the contract. As a goodwill gesture I refunded £24 and waived the £5 extra cleaning charge for the dog. Owners lose income when people cancel unless the period is booked by someone else (in this case it wasn't) so there is a logic behind the cancellation policy even though it seems harsh, especially as in your case you were booking for a later date. Fortunately changes of date and cancellations are rare but it is good that you have raised the issue so people are aware. For example not everyone realises that if they do not pay the full amount a month before the start of their holiday it is automatically cancelled by TripAdvisor without reference to the owner! Kind regards, Irene

When you come you might like to cover the excellent solar lights we have now installed, since you clearly appreciate darkness and the wonderful starry skies we enjoy!

“Fantastic, unpretentious, cosy and beautiful setting.”
Reviewed 25 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Estuary view has a lovely, warm and cosy feel and it is possibly the most well-equipped self-catering property we've ever stayed in. We felt as though we were somewhere that has really been loved by its owner and enjoyed by lots of guests. We were entertained each morning by an acrobatic squirrel, who we could watch without even getting out of bed! The place was spotlessly clean and thankfully and quite wonderfully un-'refurbished' (please don't change it) The site itself is well maintained and quiet and Aberdovey only a short drive away. The electricity meter took its time eating our pound coins, which was great and the hot water heater worked well. We wished we'd booked the whole week!
