“Wonderful sea front condo!”
Reviewed 29 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

We absolutely love staying at this Waterfoot apartment, B2. It's perfect in so many ways but best of all because of the location. It's a sea front property with a big balcony for lounging and watching the tide roll in and out and the people passing by on the promenade. Plus it's right on Main St. in the coastal town of Newcastle so we walked to everything we needed, restaurants, grocers, shops. And the apartment is so spacious! We have lots of family in the area and they visited often so we appreciated the open concept kitchen, dining, sitting room.

There was only one thing that disappointed us. The furniture in the sitting area is badly worn and uncomfortable. It's in need of replacement and was back in 2010 when we were there before. I spoke to the owner, Fran, and she intends to replace it.

When we return to Newcastle we will definitely stay at B2 Waterfoot again!

Hi D and B
Thank you for taking the time to write a review. It was a delight to have you stay with us again and hopefully we will see you back in Newcastle in the not too distant future. With regards to fixtures/fittings and furniture - the bedrooms and bathrooms have been updated and our next plan is for the living area, which should be completed over the autumn/winter period.
Enjoy the rest of the summer back home and do keep in touch.
Regards
Fran :-)

“Relaxing stay with a stunning view”
Reviewed 4 February 2017 for a stay in January 2017

My boyfriend and I stayed here for a weekend at the end of January. I found it really easy to book as the owner (Fran) is very responsive to all my messages and emails. She gives you all info you need for your stay and is always there at the end of the phone if you need any other help. For example, We had problems getting the small gate opened but was resolved with one text message

When we arrived we were greeted by a lovely lady called Frances. She showed us around the apartment and gave us the keys. The apartment has everything you need and more. The apartment is in a great location. The views are stunning, I don't think I would ever get fed up looking out of the windows. I really enjoyed my stay here and I definitely will be back in the future.

Thank you Fran and Frances

“Everything you could want and more!”
Reviewed 21 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

This summer was the best stay in Newcastle we've had yet. B2 is an outstanding place to stay. It's always lovely to come back and catch up with family and friends, but staying in B2 made it a holiday for us too.

We are so grateful for how comfortable Fran and Frances made our stay from booking arrangements right through to check out. There were just so many things about it that made our holiday extra enjoyable. The view is breathtaking, and we loved sitting out on the balcony. The apartment is spotless and so comfortable too. The WiFi was the best we've had at a holiday rental. The apartment is in the best location for all Newcastle has to offer. The car parking space is like gold!

I loved all the extra things: little notes, information, blankets, decor, good mop and brush! I cooked a chilli to take to a party one of the nights, and it was so easy compared to cooking in previous rentals: Not only did the cooker work perfectly, but I had all the utensils that I needed - and they were CLEAN. It amazes me what a difference these things made to the overall holiday experience, but they did!

“The Best Location In Newcastle”
Reviewed 11 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

person found this review helpful

From the moment we booked, we knew this was going to be a great experience. We were contacted by Fran the owner immediately after booking to welcome us and to give us instructions on how to reach the apartment, which was very easy indeed.

We were met by Frances who gave us a brief introduction to the apartment, showed us where everything was - including the ironing board!! This took around 10 minutes and we didn't see Frances until 3 days later when we were leaving.

Everything went like clockwork from the moment we paid our deposit. The apartment was clean, warm, tidy and very comfortable with WIFI that worked superbly (a must these days).

Highly recommended, especially for location, the most central spot in Newcastle.

We just love B2 Waterfoot. We spent more time in the apartment this time and it was just as warm and cosy as usual. We remarked that whilst sitting at the windows or on the terrace that it was like being on a cruise, especially when the tide was in....The sounds of the waves was so relaxing and the best benefit of all......no sea sickness! Organisation of keys,etc was excellent and we were made very welcome. I almost look on the girls as extended family. Nothing is too much trouble. Certainly home from home and spotlessly clean. Just perfect. Looking forward to a winter stay when the wind is howling and the waves are crashing and even snow on the mountains. Newcastle is beautiful in the winter.
