“Simply the best!”
Reviewed 20 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

As a family group we have rented many properties across the UK but none of them have quite come up to the all round standard of The White House. Not only is the house beautiful and so well equipped, Margaret the owner is kindness itself and her team of Susan and Alex so lovely. They cooked breakfast for us twice over, the second time on the morning of my niece's wedding when the house was a little lively as might be expected. On returning from the wedding fresh towels had been placed in all bathrooms and beds remade, never have we received this level of care and attention when renting other properties. If you are looking for a large property for a holiday I genuinely believe you will not find better. Thank you so much Margaret!

“Absolutely fabulous”
Reviewed 4 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We couldn't have chosen better for our week's stay in Ayrshire with family. The house is beautifully appointed throughout and the owner, Margaret, simply could not have been more welcoming and helfpul. The Scots are known for their warm hospitality, but the hospitality crown must surely go to Margaret. We spent a totally relaxing week here in August, and can't wait to go back next year. It's in a great location, very close to the centre of Ayr, peaceful and with an excellent pub/restaurant just a short drive away. The house is so spacious that there is plenty of room to spread out if in a large group. No queues for loos or showers either with so many ensuites! And the kitchen was a cook's dream, with pots/pans/cutlery and appliances galore. Just the best holiday home ever!

“Amazing!”
Reviewed 31 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

The house was pristine, beautifully presented, very comfortable and child friendly. ( we had five children in our group aged between 18 months to13 years).
It was my nephews 13th birthday the day we arrived and Margaret had decorated the house with balloons and banners themed around his favourite football team. As well as making us her world famous pavlova she also made a special one for him and gave him a birthday card with money inside. He was delighted!
Margaret had put chocolates in every bedroom and left enough breakfast to last us several days, the larder was well stocked with a selection of tea's coffee etc.
It was lovely to have the space to eat together, watch movies and generally chill out.
The garden caught the sun most of the day we even had a BBQ one evening.
The house is well placed for public transport with the local bus running to Ayr every 20 minutes.
We all had a fabulous time at the White house and would highly recommend it. Margaret thank you for providing us with a five star service.

“Fabulous house”
Reviewed 11 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

I booked this house for my mother-in-laws 80th birthday and from the moment she walked through the door she loved it. The house is beautifully decorated and has everything you could want. Margaret goes that extra mile to make your stay memorable. There were birthday banners and balloons and the table was set with candles and balloons and even a card and present. There were ice buckets with a bottle of bubbly and beer. The fridge was stocked with everything you would need for a cooked breakfast and Margaret had made a pavlova in the shape of 80 with candles. Each bedroom had a box of chocolates and beautiful roses were in my mother-in-laws room. I cannot recommend this house highly enough. We loved it!
