History

The original owner dived in search off ship-wrecks around the seas off Anglessey. The money he made from the copper he extracted from the wrecks back in the mid 70’s funded the purchase of the land and the building of Minerva in 1975. ‘Minerva’ means the Roman goddess of wisdom and war.

Note: 5 star status given to the property by a leading national holiday letting company.

Why Georgina Hodge chose Trearddur Bay

This property has everything anybody should ever need whilst holidaying away from home. It has all the mod-cons and has been re-furbished to a very high standard whilst still keeping that important feeling of comfort, quality and relaxation.

What makes this house unique

The panoramic views from the terrace and living area are breathtaking. A great place to escape and enjoy the peace and tranquility the property and surrounding area has to offer. Minerva is perfectly situated for any guests who stay here as it is close to nature and the beach whilst enjoying the space and mod cons of a large and luxurious property.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We really did have a truly wonderful family holiday. Your home is perfect in every manner. The layout was adventurous & enchanting, the children didn't know which way to run. The living room with it's honest welsh view gave us hours of interaction and engagement together. It was such a lovely place to spend time.



The kitchen and dinning area led to many happy breakfasts, family tea times and the slaughter of 3 lobsters. (we didn't have a problem with the sun through the window, not sure what crazy fool would as it's a pleasure when the welsh sun blinds you)



The décor was calming and the main bedrooms' mattress was a dream (On our return home we actually ditched ours a spent a small fortune on a tempur too)



We have been looking at investing in a property in trearddur bay, having viewed four while we were there, and we both firmly agreed that if Minerva came on the market we would snap it up.



Thank you for sharing your home with us.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We stayed recently as a family and had a brilliant time. The location is great - near to the beach and plenty of lovely walking options straight from the front door. The house has great views and beautifully decorated inside with everything you could possibly need, right down to the speaker system and Apple Music at the touch of a button. The kid's loved it and there was loads of space for them. It would also be great as place to go with a group of friends. I can't recommend it highly enough.

New Year Break with all the Family

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for the New Year Break, there was 12 of us and 2 dogs, the house is excellent plenty of space for us all. Excellent! the house and surroundings are beautiful.

Although it was extremely windy it didn't stop us going on long walks, with some lovely pubs to stop off at that accept dogs.

Would highly recommend a visit we will be returning.

Loved the house with it's homely feel and the views there are spectacular!

  • 5 of 5

The beach house is a perfect retreat at any time of the year. We enjoyed lots of windy walks and roaring fires with trips to the local Sea Croft and Sea Shanty. Will definitely return.

Very good property, views are fantastic

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed staying in the property, the living areas are very spacious. The pictures do not do justice to the views which are fantastic. We arrived during storm Brian, the property provided a lovely warm environment to watch out the storm. It is very conveniently located to take a short leisurely walk down to the beach which is lovely.

Just perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Such a terrific space - perfect for extended family get-togethers! The Beach House is extremely well equipped and lacks nothing. It is well-designed, clean, comfortable and very child-friendly. The kitchen layout is roomy and is user-friendly for a number of helping hands! The views are excellent.

The short walk to the beach across a field, was a treat in itself, as we encountered friendly sheep (who probably thought our buckets were full of tasty food) nuzzling against us, rather like dogs!

Georgina was especially kind, helpful and approachable, particularly when I requested an extra day and also when I left behind a favourite item of clothing.

I'd like to think we can visit in the future and would whole-heartedly recommend this special "holiday home-from-home!"
