“this house is excellent for a home to home holiday stay.”
Reviewed 24 January 2017 for a stay in December 2016

The location is great , parking outside front door.
Directly opposite front door is a working harbour. To the right is a sandy beach.
We stayed for 4 weeks mid December 2016 to mid January 2017.
The weather was very mild for winter ,which allowed for lovely walks around the harbour, beach and coastal pathway, which well lite at night.
Best sea food restaurant in northern ireland 2016, across the road from the house and local fish & chip shop about 2 mins, local grocery shop a couple of minutes further.
Gilliam ( the owner) was very welcoming and friendly,she lives locally and available if needed. Allowing for total privacy if required.
Harbour view had all the kitchen items etc and bedding, towels you could want
House is modern, very warm and we would recommend this holiday home to anyone.
House is very reasonably priced for the comfort and freedom required to fully have a home from home holiday.
We would visit again and would recommend to friends.

“Beautifully situated, well equipped accomodation”
Reviewed 17 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

The house is set right at the harbour and has beautiful views. It has ample parking. The house is spacious and immaculately kept. The owners are lovely and were very helpful at resolving any problems. The kitchen and eating area are small compared to the rest of the house but we managed fine (2 adults and 3 kids). Bedrooms are beautifully decorated and the beds are very comfy - there is only blinds on the 2 bedrooms upstairs. The Quays restaurant across the road is recommended - beautiful food and family friendly. The house is in a great location for exploring.. Would stay again.
