About James Cox

We are the Cox Family from Cheshire, 4 brothers who have holidayed in Abersoch all our lives (we even lived there for a couple of years).

We bought Island View as a family project and holiday house in 2007 and have been trying to make this lovely big house better each year!

James Cox purchased this house in 2007

Why James Cox chose Lleyn Peninsula

We loved the size (we're a big family), the location (close to everything), the views (without the Million Pound price tag) and the period nature of the house.

What makes this house unique

We don't think much comes close to the size, location and value of Island View....we hope you agree.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had another great weekend in Abersoch last week, the changes you have made to the house are fantastic we loved the patio area and had a great barbecue on the Saturday night.

Large comfortable house in great position in village near the beach

  • 4 of 5

Comfortable well furnished living rooms downstairs, very well equipped kitchen. Warm central heating. Bedrooms less well furnished but adequate. Parking on drive and on road reserved for four cars.

Shower in bedroom 2 had flimsy fitting and doors; we were unable to use it.

Good for large families/groups. I would recommend it. It worked well for our three generations. ( delivery from Tesco on arrival was a good idea and worked very well)

Spacious, cosy and clean

  • 5 of 5

Our group of eight adults and two dogs had a fun filled, albeit far too short a stay of two nights at Island View. We love our long, scenic walks and the house is ideally positioned in the center of everything, enabling us to walk straight out the door and keep going for endless miles with stunning scenery then ending up back in the village for great pub lunches at a couple of the many excellent watering holes on offer.

The kitchen is well appointed and the sitting room and snug are very cosy and allowed us all to socialize together. We occupied the four bedrooms on the first floor and found the beds extremely comfortable indeed. The entire house was spotless. We are already looking at dates to return.

Lovely property and area

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Abersoch over Christmas and the house is beautiful and spacious.

We had a few problems with the internet and one shower would not drain away so could not be used but other than that the house and area were great.

I think that in future providing linen may encourage those from further away to rent as those can take up a lot of weight and space in your luggage but we knew that before we rented , this is just an observation.

All in all it was a wonderful place to stay and the owners had provided a Christmas tree which added to the festive week.

Thank you!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the feedback. Regarding the linen, it is something we have looked into, but due to the number of beds it was adding a significant cost for guests, and due to the costs of the linen, we'd have needed to make it the standard for all, so have currently decided against it. We'll keep gauging this. Thanks, James

Absolutely top drawer, a fantastic house in a truly fantastic position

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay. The house has all the facilities you would ask for, has bags of room and loads of character. It's a two minute walk to the village and not much longer to the beach.

We are looking forward to our next stay, all in all excellent

Beautiful, spacious and quirky.

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous stay. Perfect location, plenty of parking. Lovely house, huge in fact, ideal for extended family and friends. Card and wine on arrival, very thoughtful gesture. Enormous cooker and plenty of space to sit and eat together.

Good location, roomy, but rather shabby

  • 2 of 5

The house was conveniently situated within walking distance of the centre of Abersoch and local beaches, and an excellent touring centre. Inside, the house was rather disappointing. No working light in the large (dark) hallway although we changed the bulb, according to one of our party, an electrician there was a fault. There was no "Welcome Pack" with local emergency numbers nor any details of how the heating, cooker, etc worked. This was very annoying. We had difficulties in contacting the owner, who was helpful once eventually contacted. Our major compaint was the hassle of having to bring our own bedding and towels. At the price paid, this was very poor service. Some of the rooms looked tired, but the beds were very comfortable. Cleaning seemed not up to standard with a collection of cobwebs left for some time in the front room. Without our knowledge, scafolders turned up on the Thursday to set up outside the front of the house, hence the patio door was out of use.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and feedback - it is appreciated, even if not terribly glowing on this occasion. Please see below my updates / comments: 1. Cleaning - wholly unacceptable. I'm very frustrated by this, and it appears to be a continual battle to maintain the standards when I'm not present. We have decided to employ a Contract Cleaning company to do twice yearly deep detailed cleans to supplement the weekly/pre/post guest cleans. 2. Bulbs out - ditto above. I've discussed this with our housekeeper. 3. Welcome Pack - slightly confused on this, as we now operate an electronic Welcome Pack with all the details online. You should have received a number of emails highlighting this via the HomeAway website. This is partly the process from HomeAway but also suits us, as the original hard copy always looked a mess and was always out of date. The contact details for myself and our Housekeeper where also in this electronic system. 4. Linen - we have investigated linen on a couple of occasions , as have been asked once or twice previously. The costs ended up being prohibitive due to short turn rounds, costs of duplicate sets of linen, maintenance and cleaning / bed making costs. It was coming out at circa £200 per rental, which was prohibitive. 5. Cost / Value of the Rental - I'm afraid we are very much on the market rent for Abersoch taking into account the size, location and condition of the property. We are also very booked up with over 30 rentals per annum. 6. Scaffolding - sometime my mind boggles at things like this. I'm afraid this is simply a mess up and it arrived a week early! We are doing some works to the roof windows on the top floor so we can complete the redecoration of these two rooms, and it was all meant to start at the end of this week! Finally, we are continually striving to develop and improve our wonderful family holiday house with ALL rental profits going straight back into the property. We are have just had a NEST electronic thermostat installed, new blackout curtains to bedroom 3 and various other general decoration / touching up. Thanks, James
