We stopped here as a group of 8 people on a weekend away for my dad’s 70th Birthday. The apartment is huge and has plenty of space, a well equipped kitchen and large living room with views right over the beach. It also has a balcony with views to the Abbey. It’s a very short walk along the Cliff top into Whitby centre and there is plenty of parking space available. Would highly recommend.

Great location.. Nice walks into town. Lovely to watch New Years Eve Whitby fireworks from the balcony. Apartment is clean, and very well kitted out. Would definitely return, but would have to think about the cost as it was quite expensive.

Unfortunately I was taken ill before our holiday and would have chosen a venue closer to home through Sykes but we were unable to move our deposit to another property, so we're left with the options of cancelling and losing money or going ahead.. Yes we did have insurance but entering into a claim is an annoying and slow process. I understand why we couldn't move our deposit, but it is frustrating. I thought that Sykes were excellent in all aspects of their management.

An amazing apartment, the views are fantastic and everything you need within easy reach, including a bar and Chinese restaurant downstairs! Loads of space, comfortable seating and beds. Don't be fooled by downstairs entry which has an air of faded grandeur, this building is well kept and efficiently run, can't think of any criticism, we hope to be back and our family visitors want to return with their friends. A 10 minute walk takes you to the centre of Whitby.

What a great apartment, great location.. Very spacious, everything you need is in this apartment, great Chinese downstairs . Very clean and lovely and warm just like home . Great views from the balcony and windows. Lovely nice touch which was a telescope. Will definitely be returning with our family and friends.

This property is absolutely stunning.. The pictures on the Sykes website are wholly accurate but really do not do it justice. My husband and I visited with my mum, dad and brother and we were all blown away by just how beautiful Cairns Vista is. Location is perfect just a very short walk from the town and the sea views are just breath taking. It was just a fleeting weekend visit for us - we all wished we were there for longer than 2 night. Top class.

Cairns Vista is a fabulous place and location.. Stayed there last two years and already booked it for next year! Well recommended.

Lovely apartment has everything you need Only downside are - wasnt properly cleaned, mattresses need renewing, towels hard Sounds as if we are being picky.. We really enjoyed it. The walk across the cliff to Robin Hoods Bay is lovely it does take about 3 hours though, not 2 like it says on google!

Cairns Vista is a fantastic apartment with outstanding views.. The location is perfect and we all had a brilliant time. All the beds were comfy, the kitchen was well equipped for cooking and our kids really enjoyed the Jacuzzi bath, they have never asked for a bath so often. The only thing I'd suggest (and this isnt a criticism) is for some plastic plates, bowls and cutlery in the kitchen for those of us with young kids. To be fair most families (not us unfortunately) would remember to bring their own.

The stunning views over Whitby were the highlight of this flat.. The rooms were spacious and clean and the location was just about perfect for seeing around Whitby, which is a lovely town. Very reasonable price as well for a group of 8 people.

The holiday home was just as advertised with Sykes.. The apartment was everything we expected. It was clean and comfortable. It is a spacious apartment and central to everything we needed. The whole building is in a good and tidy condition. Loved going to sleep to the sounds of the waves right outside, Waking in the morning and seeing the fishing boats leaving the harbour. It is a great place for people of all ages with the addition of the lift if you don't fancy the stairs. I would try and rent it againg if we went to that area again. Lynn Newman

We stayed here for 3 nights 18-21 November as a group including myself, my husband, another couple and 3 other friends. It was very easy to find from the directions given and in a great location with amazing views. There were 2 sets of keys so the keysafe was a great convenience for us all to come and go as we pleased. The apartment was very spacious and was plenty big enough for us all and was very well maintained and modern with good quality furniture and luxury furnishings. We had the room with the en-suite shower room which was clean and well maintained as was the whole of the apartment. The free wi-fi was also a bonus. We came home yesterday and have already looked to book again for next year. A wonderful apartment with spectacular views and in a great location.

Our party of 5, including my 4 year old granddaughter could not have wished for better accommodation at a better location in Whitby. Superb views on two sides from the living room of the beach and the town. The apartment had everything you could ask for to create a great holiday. Parking was easy and made simple by parking tickets supplied by the owners. We would certainly recommend this apartment to anyone and we hope to return sooner than later.

The entrance was quite depressing. The staircase was impressive, but when we reached the the third floor it was rather down at heel, it's the only floor that hasn't been carpeted properly and decorated. The corridor to the apartment was quite dark and the sensor light above the door only stays on for about 10 seconds, not long enough to open the door. The apartment has been done up quite well and the views are amazing. Unfortunately the small things let it down. The place was very warm when we arrived, bacon rolls and milk were left out on the kitchen counter, rather than in the fridge. Shame because it was a nice touch, there were no parking scratch cards, so we had to pay for parking, we couldn't reach the housekeeper to ask for some has the number that was given said unobtainable when we rang. We eventually contacted the owner. There was only one set of keys, which was difficult. The place had not been cleaned properly. It is such a shame as these small details make all the difference. The place is lovely, the decor is good and the location is excellent. I would stay there again but would be prepared and not put off by the initial impression.
