Reviewed 1 April 2018 for a stay in March 2018

Apratment spotless. Views stunning. Everthing you need is supplied. Donnie (the owner) is lovely. Always around if you need advice on places to go or things to do. We were booked in for 3 nights ended up staying for 5. Would highly recommend. Will definately be back. So peaceful.

“Booked to return”
Reviewed 13 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Stayed 6 nights in the sea captains house and wasn't ready to leave. This unique accommodation was very comfortable and spotlessly clean. The views ,the beach the wildlife , the golf course all make this a magical place. We watched otters from the window eating their catch on the rocks. A huge thanks to owner Donnie for looking after us so well. Looking forward to a weekend in September and returning next summer with the extended family in tow .

“Beautiful”
Reviewed 15 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Stayed here for my mums 50th in June. Couldnt have asked for anything better. The views are simply stunning!! The house is very homely and comfortable to stay in and is lovely inside and out. Donnie was great, made sure we had everything and checked that everything was okay for us. Would definitely return here, (didnt actually want to leave). Plenty of places to go for walks, or just to relax with the beach right on your doorstep!

Booked a last minute 3 night stay. Owner could not have been more kind, helpful and accommodating. The property was lovely, well presented and all you need was available. The location was truly special with beach and sea feet away - beautiful. If you want to relax and get away from it all this is perfect.

“Memorable self-catering property in a great location”
Reviewed 5 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

4 of us stayed one night in the Sea Captain's House at Dunaverty Rock, while walking the Kintyre Way, which passes very close to the property. The window seat in the living room provides a great view across Dunaverty Bay, with lots of wildlife-watching opportunities, while out the back of the property is a lovely little cove surrounded by cliffs and more wildlife. A memorable spot.

Donnie the owner is particularly friendly and helpful.
