Brilliant location. Spacious communal area
By Alex on 10-Nov-2019
We booked The Old Stables for a weekend getaway with friends. We had high expectations from the listing but seeing it in real life surpassed even that! Beautiful house in a lovely setting, fantastic amenities and the 4 ovens made catering for a large group very easy. Yousef was very helpful and responded quickly to messages. Thanks so much!

We enjoyed our stay at this very spacious house. The hot tub was a delight and the open plan social space throughout the property is amazing. The bedrooms were clean and modern with very comfortable beds and the bathrooms again were of a very high standard. Yousef himself was a pleasure to deal with and was very helpful and friendly. I would certainly recommend a stay at the Old Stables.

Huge Place With Brilliant Facilities
By Jack on 15-Jul-2019
A huge place with brilliant facilities and everything you need for a large group to have a great time. We were tow families (4 adults and 3 kids) and we had plenty of space left over. A great time had by all, you wouldn't even need the house to occupy yourself if you didn't want to.
Stunning House & Really Clean
By Natalie on 28-Jun-2019

Even Better than the Photos
By Charlotte on 19-May-2019
The photos do not do this beautiful place justice! We had the most amazing weekend here. The hot tub is amazing and the house is absolutely beautiful! And it comes with everything you might need. So many lovely touches.
Host - one of the best
By Coral on 12-May-2019
This house is BEAUTIFUL. The living space allows everyone to socialise together while cooking, eating, drinking, playing games or just watching the tv. It's two mins from a lovely beach and seafront and close to a couple of little shops. The Host, Yousef was one of the best, on the Friday night we had an issue with the hot tub not fully working and he drove 1.15mins, each way, to come and fix it for us. We went up there to climb Snowden so this was a dream when we got back from a day of climbing. I'd highly recommend this place and will be back if in Wales again.
Spacious & Well Equipped
By Jasem on 14-Apr-2019
Beautiful home for a rural retreat in the heart of mother nature (literally with the roof windows peeping into the jungle wood trees above). The house was spacious and was well equipped. Will definitely recommend.
Fantastic Place to Relax

By Kathryn on 07-Apr-2019
The house is beautiful and set up perfectly for a large gathering. We loved the fact that we could relax in the living area and not hear any noise from the games room.

By Andrea on 20-Feb-2019
Beautiful shared space, equally private and intimate, and 1 minute from the beach. A wonderful place that offered more than expected.
By Thomas on 17-Feb-2019
Lovely house with a very useful spacious open plan kitchen/living area, good sized bedrooms and bathrooms and the hot tub went down a treat. A perfect location only metres from the beach and promenade and a short drive to Conwy and Llandudno. Yousef is a pleasure to deal with and the whole process went very smoothly and he made himself contactable if needed. Would definitely recommend and I hope we will go back again I the future!

A Perfect Stay
By Hannah on 13-Jan-2019
Just back from a perfect stay at The Old Stables. The pictures on the web do not do the place justice. It was beautiful, stylish, immaculate and so so spacious.

Better than expected
By Lindsay on 06-Jan-2019

6 stars - fantastic
By Richard on 31-Oct-2018
Stunning experience. Fantastic house, great location (nice easy walk to the beach), wide open floor space, big TV, comfortable beds, pool table was a hit, fantastic hot tub, sparkling clean, comfortable beds, and the host (Yousef) is phenomenal. He gave me a quick walk-through of the home and was extremely responsive and helpful. We will absolutely return. My kids actually cried when it was time to leave the house and end the holiday. We love that home. 6 stars.

Really Nice Place
By Jabir on 15-Aug-2018
Really nice place to stay, Yousef was a really good host. Self check in was really good and the hot tub and pool table were great additions. Definatley reccomend.
Lots of space & great facilities
By Ian on 11-Aug-2018
Fantastic place with lots of space, great facilities and Yousef is a great host. Not much to do in the immediate vicinity. However, the beach is very near and there are lots of options across North Wales which are all easy to get to from the house. A great place to relax in or use as a base to explore North Wales.
Perfect for every family member
By Claire on 04-Aug-2018
Fantastic house in perfect location for exploring north wales, 20 mins or less from many atttactions including Llandudno and the mountain zoo. Youssef and Sarah were great hosts, leaving clear instructions about the house and a welcome hamper with first day essentials. The kitchen was excellently equipped with plenty of pots/pans/crockery for our large family holiday. Much more spacious than the photos give it credit, it was the perfect venue for every member of the family- from the downstairs bedroom for grandparents to for provided for baby. The outdoor hot tub was great for a night in whilst kids were in bed and access to Netflix allowed the kids to have a movie night too. This house was a truly great find, and we would recommend it to anyone wanting to stay in the area, especially families.

Will recommend to all our friends!
By Lauren on 20-May-2018
Wonderful stay, stunning house and had everything we needed. Fabulous location, 5 mins walk from the beach and the court yard area was private and well equipped (hot tub, BBQ, table etc) The huge living area was great for the babies to run and crawl around! Everything was clean and well maintained. Thank you Yousef for a memorable stay! We'll be recommending this place to all our friends!!

Very Spacious, Beautiful, Clean Family Home
By Linda on 07-May-2018
Beautiful clean family home. Very spacious. There is no grassed garden area and is in the shade however the hot tub & bbq area more than compensate. The host was more than accommodating making sure we were happy and offering mobile number for any assistance.

Lovely house! Great entertaining space, Home from Home amenities. Yousef was there to great us and show us around. The welcome pack was a nice touch. We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend.
Will surpass your expectations!
By Nathan on 14-Jan-2018
The Old Stables will surpass your expectations! Yousef is a great host who couldn't do enough for us during our stay. Prior to our arrival he was always on hand to answer any questions we had, this continued throughout our stay. The House is larger than expected, and was very well presented with all mod cons. The Hot Tub is a great edition to the property and was used daily (even though it was January!). The property is around a 3 minute walk to the beach and is situated on a quiet one-way street. Overall we really enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend it to others!
By Martin on 05-Jan-2018
Great house, great hospitality and great location for exploring North Wales - highly recommended.
Amazing New Year!
By Adam on 01-Jan-2018
We stayed here over New Year and it was amazing. The photos don’t do it justice! The open plan living room is great and the sofas were comfy. After a heavy night out in the local pubs we relaxed with the log burner on and watched movies on the big tv, so good! The pool table was used lots! The table was a bit shaky and the cues have come to the end of their life but we still played lots of games. The hot tub was great and made our stay perfect! My wife loved the kitchen and she rustled us up a roast beef and chicken dinner and the fact there are 3 big ovens and plenty of space made it really easy. Yousef was a great host and made sure we had everything we needed.
By Holly on 27-Dec-2017
We (6 adults and a baby) had a wonderful stay at Yousef's- the pictures don't do the place justice! If you love cooking this place is especially great as it has a wonderful kitchen. The hotub and fire kept us toasty and when we did venture out it was only a few minutes walk to a nice long prom/beach. We would deffinatly book here again! Thank you!
Exceeded my expectation
By Benjamin on 01-Dec-2017
I had to comment on whether my expectations were met and after reading the previous reviews I had extremely high expectations and they were certainly met. We literally couldn't fault the property, it was stunning and done to a high standard. The location was great but we stayed in most of the time as it was a weekend of catching up with friends. We were blessed to have snowy weather so a memory of being in the Hottub in the snow was one never to be forgotten. The beds were particularly comfortable (lots of the party mentioned them), the kitchen stunning and the living area was big enough for the party to eat, drink and socialise with each other in comfort. A lot of the lads really enjoyed the pool table too, lots of games of Killer Pool were had. Our only teeeeny tiny improver (as we absolutely LOVED the place) would be a slightly bigger Hot Tub as we couldn't all fit in at once so had to do rotas! Haha. If you are thinking about booking I really would visit this place and Yousef couldn't have been any more help with this listing too.
By Charlotte on 10-Nov-2017
Yousef's place has taken top spot for my favourite air bnb stay! I stayed with 8 friends from school as a kind of reunion. We spent friday night cosied up by the fire (which we could have left off as the underfloor heating was fabulous!) and had a quick dip in the hot tub which was at temperature and ready to go. Saturday we explored the beach, which is approx a 2 min walk away. We had lunch at The Plough, a classic pub grub place about 5 min walk away. Yousef left us with some good walking suggestions and we had a bit of a ramble which was nice. The sound system with aux came in really handy on Saturday night. The whole place is made for hosting. We all really really enjoyed our stay!!!!!
By Lynn on 20-Oct-2017
This was exactly as stated on the AirBNB site. Yousef was there to greet us when we arrived and show us around. The cottage was spotless and perfect for our stay. We fully recommend this cottage to anyone who wishes to go to that area.
By Joe on 07-Oct-2017
Just back from a brilliant stay with family. More than enough space for 6 adults and 3 kids in a stylish setting, with great amenities and well travelled touches around the home. A great location to spend time with a large family, lots of space to cook, eat and relax. We'll be looking to come back!
By Celfyn on 18-Sep-2017
Lovely house. Very clean and spacious. Excellent location - only a few minutes walk to the beach and shops. Pool table and hot tub were great. Thanks Yousef!

Fabulous property in a lovely spot
This place is amazing
By Wayne on 15-Sep-2017
This place is amazing. Such a lovely big house and the hot tub just tops it all off nicely. We stayed here for a few days. It was a great base to explore North Wales. Recommend going to Llandudno and Conwy and if you've got young children try Greenwood Forest Park its great.
beautiful modern holiday house, with every amenity you could think of!
By Lezlavan on 04-Sep-2017
on quiet tree-lined street right along a cool stream, a minutes walk to the sea/beach. hot tub and pool table were great! owner tried hard to accommodate and provide all we wanted! stayed with fond memories!
Wonderful cottage in Wales!
By Jen on 30-Aug-2017
Wonderful cottage in Wales! Perfect for our stay, not over looked, short walk to beach / local shop / pub etc. Yousef was a brilliant host, meeting us there on arrival & giving us an amazing welcome with lots of information. Nothing seemed too much trouble. Yousef replied to emails straight away & is very welcoming & helpful. We will defiantly be back. Thanks Yousef for allowing us to stay in your cottage for the weekend. See you soon! :)
By Abbie Murphy on 23-Aug-2017
Wow we had such a wonderful stay at Yousef's place in Colwyn north Wales. The old stables is just perfection, it's modern, yet sympathetic to that cost cottage feel. The hot tub is amazing it's 42 degrees!! You can use it anytime of year and you'll be in it for hours! There's a pool table and board games and it's touches like that, that show just how thoughtful
The owner has been when offering up his property for holiday rentals. He left leaflets of nearby attractions and takeaway menus, and for those that love to cook, he's got a barbecue available and a FULLY equipped beautiful modern kitchen. We went to Wales to explore, and yes we climbed snowdon - But other than that we didn't leave the house because we were so happy and relaxed there we didn't want to! A log burner, Tv and sound system and really high quality bedding are just other plus's that spring to mind. I simply couldn't fault it. Thanks Yousef!
A Lovely Place
By Amanda on 07-Aug-2017
It was a lovely place to stay within walking distance of the beach and we could walk to the local shops. The hot tub was great.
Well positioned to explore North Wales
By Chris on 27-Jul-2017
The accommodation was clean and tidy and provided all the necessary equipment to manage our 1 and 3 year olds. The location was excellent, being only a short walk to the beach, local Co-op or take always. It is also very well positioned to explore the all of north Wales. The Hot Tub is an amazing addition which gives a wonderful opportunity to relax and recoup after a day of sightseeing.
A Great Host
By Ruth on 23-Jul-2017
Yousef was a great host, he welcomes us on arrival with a basket of treats. The house is beautiful and really spacious and the hot tub worked perfectly. It's really close to the beach and easy to get to Snowdonia for walks. Would definitely stay again as a group of friends or family.
By Yvonne on 17-Jul-2017
Excellent accommodation, would definitely recommend. Luxury throughout and in a fantastic spot, BBQ and hot tub facilities as well which was the icing on the cake. Yousef was great at communication and let us know everything we needed for our stay, we will definitely be returning.
A Lovely Home

A Beautiful Place
By Haroona on 25-Jun-2017
Beautiful place. The cottage is welcoming and has all the mod cons. My children loved the hot tub. Located so close to a lovely beach and has beautiful serene surroundings - listen out for the woodpecker, and find the carved owl in the large trees nearby.
