location, comfortable, contemporary and very well equipped
Front bedroom had street lighting right outside. Window blinds would benefit from “blackout blinds” to darken room through the night.






Excellent location very quiet, close to the beach and promenade, shops, bars and restaurants, the apartment was well equipped with everything we needed, we enjoyed a very nice long weekend, our little dog loved it, it is a great place to take your dog lots of nice walks and most places let you take your dog inside.
Saltburn it is lovely, lovely walks along the beach, there is enough to do without being overbearing, the sunset is amazing to watch, will definitely be back
Could do with curtains in the bedroom too bright there is a street light right outside so always bright, needs a little general maintenance, replacing bulbs, shower door not in properly, squeaky living room door, main entrance door.
The patio area could with some extra touches it doesn't get much sun so could do with being a little more inviting



Lovely location to enjoy Saltburn. Good space, comfortable bed.



Had a lovely break @ Ruby . Would definitely recommend as its modern , clean and homely . Bed was so comfortable and power shower was fab .
Great base to travel round the near by beaches & villages of Whitby Marske , Scarborough, Robin Hoods bay .



The Location so close to the beach (beware there is alot of steps down to the actual beach!).
Gorgeous interior.
Lovely kitchen.
A Lovely Bath.
So much noise as there was 1 or 2 further tenants upstairs, and the slamming of the doors as they entered and left their property was so loud.



Hi to everyone thinking of booking this lovely and spacious holiday let, the attention to detail as regards the decorating is second to none, and very comfortable, nice and clean and fresh as well, couple of nice little touches as regards milk in the fridge and towels in the bathroom as well, close to all the amenities as well. And then there is the beach only a stones throw away from this lovely bolt hole..We will definitely be back soon ..



Great location, so near the sea.



Nicely furnished flat, ideal for a mini break. Comfy bed and sofa.
Coffee, tea and milk provided which was welcomed.
Parking nearby can be a bit tricky if it’s high season.
Steep steps to outside yard, but very useful for dogs.



A really cosy, well-designed appartment, in a great location- perfect for the beach and the cafes and bars!

I think the place is great. It just neds a few slight updates. Privacy window/curtains in living room, moss to be cleaned in garden and mould and mildew in bathroom. I know I being rather picky, but it such a great place those things just let it down. I would definitely stay again

Had a short break here from Thursday to Sunday, Saltburn is a great base for exploring this coast.
The accommodation is very close to shops and bars on a very quiet street with ample free parking.
Easy access to property as keys in box.
Once inside nice layout, could do with a blackout curtain to calm the light from the street light outside the bedroom but didn't bother us that much as we were tired.
The lounge area was comfortable but once again curtain badly needed to cover patio doors at back as property overlooked and with lights on leaves one open to being exposed on mid night visits to the loo if not covered up and forgetful like me.
Kitchen was well equipped and bathroom comfortable.
All things considered this is a lovely apartment and nicely furnished, the curtain requirements are a minor issue.
Would recommend a stay here and we really enjoyed our time.
Our dog Thea was also really chilled out here as well......thanks.



Location was perfect, very quiet. Apartment was very airy & comfortable. We enjoyed our stay,
Although there were vertical blinds in the bedroom they were white/cream there was no getting away from the fact there was a lamp post right outside the bedroom. You could almost read with the no lamp on in the room. Not sure how it would be in in the summer months when there is much more daylight. Also, the French windows in the lounge had no blinds/curtains etc so there was an element of having no privacy. Maybe a set of drawers in the bedroom would be useful.
Also the patio area could certainly benefit from a jet wash & a window cleaner perhaps



Everything, lovely appartment, everything you need for a stay.
That there was no curtains in the living room and blinds in kitchen. With it been October having lights on early evening the neighbours in house opposite sit out and can see straight in.
Everybody has commented on this so do think it needs to be addressed.



Great location, couple of minutes to the shops and cafes and likewise to the front overlooking the beach.
Apartment was compact (but easily big enough) and tidy with everything you would reasonably need.



Front door needs fixing and needs curtains in room and in bedroom



apartment very clean and comfortable. close to seafront and shops. overall ok to stay for a long weekend. just be aware the bedroom does not have curtain or black out blind just a vertical blind so is not very dark to sleep. decent places to eat in Saltburn within walking distance



House was nice to stay in but saltburn wasn’t for us.



We really enjoyed our stay. It was easy to find, parking on the street was straight forward and the location was excellent. It's 2 minutes from the beach and 2 minutes from the shops.
The apartment was super clean and had excellent facilities.
The blinds in the bedroom were an issue as they didn't fully cover the window and they offered no filter from the street light or daylight.



Lovely clean flat with outside area, ideal if you have a dog. Take a dressing gown with you as you have to walk past a window with no curtains on the way back from the bathroom to the bedroom. If you like your bedroom really dark to sleep, take an eye mask as it’s quite bright. Also the coffee machine advertised doesn’t have the correct pods for it so don’t expect a coffee when you arrive! All in all a great place to stay in a fab location.



Lovely stay, tastefully decorated, clean and modern. Perfect location for the beach and the pretty high st with everything you need on your doorstep. We’d love to stay again!

My husband and I and 2 small dogs really needed a weekend away by the sea! and this was perfect! newly refurbished, it was clean and had everything we needed.....and the location was perfect for the beach...5 mins and you are there! We are used to country cottages so we were concerned the street might be noisy but it was very quiet!! street parking is available- not always right outside the flat but it wasn't an issue for us. Would recommend!!



Great little apartment, spotlessly clean very well maintained
I liked everything!



Felt slightly damp. Entrance door to property needed some force to close. Lack of draw space for clothing. Lack of cleaning cloths, only a small sponge to do the washing up with.



Very lovely little apartment by the sea which our little dog loved too. It has everthing you might need and is comfortable. Great night's sleep, very quiet, brilliantly situated for all the bars, cute shops and the beach too. Easy to park anywhere and hosts were quick to respond. The blinds in the bedroom aren't very thick though so would recommend an eye mask!



Brilliant little place, very well finished & perfect location for everything in Saltburn. Would highly recommend!



Great flat in a central location in Saltburn; close to shops, transport links as well as the beach and the woods.



It was really clean. Had everything we could have wanted and the hosts even provided milk, coffee and tea. It was in a great location with free parking. The bed was really comfy, shower really powerful and the bath was a really good size. Communication with the host was really informative and consistent throughout our stay.
The only thing I would improve was the bedroom in a morning was really bright, could do with a set of curtains on top of the blind. Thats a really personal preference though.



It was in a perfect location, free and easy parking, very stylishly decorated and had everything we needed.



All the little extras like toiletries, the decor, coffee,tea and milk plus other things in the cupboards that we didn't expect. The location was also excellent
Just a suggestion, could do with a blind or curtains at the French windows in the lounge, especially as the bathroom is the opposite end from the bedroom.



Curtains or a blind in the lounge would have made it even better



The apartment was clean, well presented and located near the sea. It was bigger than expected, the bed and sofa were really comfortable. Loved the cooker. I liked the original art, too.
I found the rules from Superhog made it difficult to relax at times, and were perhaps a little draconian. The bedroom and living room needed curtains for a little more privacy. A coffee table would be good, too



Nice property but lacks blinds in the lounge so neighbours can see straight in when using the dining table or when setting on the sofa.



Loved the modern decor , near amenities, car parking
No blind or curtain in living room patio doors



Lovely well equipped apartment. Modern and nicely furnished. Great location.
The apartment needs curtains in the bedroom. The blinds let a lot of light in. There is a street light outside so even when it’s dark the room is still very light. Also the blinds are not private enough given the bedroom window is on the street.
Being a downstairs flat, there is a lot of noise from upstairs.



Tastefully & beautifully decorated apartment in a great location. Good contact with the owners. Easy check-in & check-out. Good value for money.
Would have given 100% but for lack of curtains in the living room.



Close to sea, clean, everything you need
Needs curtains in bedroom , no washing machine



Lovely clean stylish apartment prefect for travelling for work or leisure



The apartment is lovely & modern and was very clean/well kept
There were no curtains in the bedroom (only office style blinds) and so the street lamp that was right outside the room shone through and made the room very bright so was unable to sleep properly



Great stay here! It was beautifully clean and super modern, well presented home. The location is fab, the beach is at the bottom of the road or bars and restaurants two streets away! Would definitely recommend and return for another visit!



Great place. Great location. Really well appointed.



Spacious flat with all modern facilities. Very quiet road with beach 5 min walk at bottom of road. Train station at top of road and local shops and supermarket by station. All walking distance. Parking on road outside property.
Very clean throughout and nice to have a little courtyard to rear with doors from lounge and kitchen to it be great in summer to sit for morning coffee.






Great place to stay 5 min walk to anywhere in Saltburn,

Parking is free and always found a spot

Would reccomend

Clean beautiful apartment. Needed blinds in the lounge as bathroom is at the back of house. Also no use able mirrors for hair and makeup. Very quiet and close to all amenities. Lovely independent restaurants near by.



Brilliant location and very clean and airey
No table and chairs inside. Better I had blinds and curtains on windows. Drawers needed in bedroom



Beautifully furnished. Very convenient location for beach /town / train. Plenty of eateries nearby too. Ideal for couples.



Fabulous little flat, decorating stylishly and with more than everything you will need for you stay.

We lit the fire one evening (not because the flat was cold - it’s centrally heated) which made it especially cosy.

Great location for the beach, with some lovely walks to be had.



Lovely place would definitely recommend to family and friends



Nice little apartment in close proximity to lovely beach



Comfortable bed, beautifully decorated, very clean
Needs table and chairs in doors, otherwise Have to haul outside chairs and tables in to eat if weather bad. No chopping board, minimum kitchen equipment, so not great if you want to self cater!
