Many thanks we had a lovely stay in your house. ,we arrived late and tired but climbed into those heavenly beds and slept so well
We enjoyed preparing some meals in your well equipped kitchen. Some of us worked ! others watched us with a glass of wine but we all had fun. We did not have to travel far for meals out ,one of our favourites 55 North and a nice stroll along the prom afterwards .
As we only had the weekend did not see all but enjoyed coastal walks and rope bridge ,we will be back and for longer next time
The local people are so friendly and really make you feel welcome ,
A short walk from the house we found a well stocked supermarket who also sell cooked food to to take away ,there is also a wine store and a fish &chip shop we did try and it was very tasty
Thanks again from all of us.
Perfect location for NW200 and exploring NW Ireland. Property was extremely well appointed with all usual amenities including Wifi (would do well to include WiFi in the facilities list). Especially good was the large kitchen / dining / sitting area; great for large groups.
Could not really fault it and definitely recommend it.
Owner was extremely helpful and responsive.
Our family of four was very fortunate to rent this lovely home for 10 days. It was beautifully decorated and quite spacious. We felt very comfortable in our holiday home. As we were in town for the Milk Cup, we couldn't have picked a better location. Portrush and Portstewart are quaint coastal towns with stunning views, plenty of shopping and great restaurants. The Ramore group of restaurants offer a great selection of dishes. In Portstewart, Harry's Shack is a must - book ahead.
The views along the Causeway Coastal route were breath-taking...the Giant's Causeway, Dunluce Castle, Carrick-a-rede rope bridge and the Dark Hedges. Gerard was very helpful and quick to reply to any questions. As mentioned by others, wifi would have been convenient, especially when trying to communicate with others via email or DM. There are plenty of places in town that offer free wifi.
The neighbors we met were quite lovely - very friendly and welcoming. A special hello to Gail and her family :) We would highly recommend this rental home. A++
Having never been to this part of the world before this was a new adventure for us. We did not expect great weather and in that respect we were not disappointed !! We found lots to do, this coast is beautiful and it was well worth the trip. The house was lovely, better than the photos's. Wi-fi would be nice but on saying that it was good to spend wild evenings in the cosy kitchen playing Jenga and Balderdash and just generally chilling out. The house is thoughtful and reflects the owners tastes, everything was of a very high standard and quality and makes you feel you are in a home not a holiday home; it was spotless and is a credit to the owners (this comes from a very picky person - trust me). Gerrard gave us lots of ideas on what to see in the area and responded well whenever I needed information. We ate at the Causeway Hotel which was OK but the tapas bar call Ocho in Portrush was superb.Would recommend.
We were a party of 7 covering 3 generations and we all loved our week long stay. The house it'self is absolutely spotless with space for all and more. All facilities and amenities worked just great.
The grandparents loved the "club lounge" - they just came in by Stena line afterall :) and to be honest the decor is probably more to their taste than maybe younger peeps but that as they say is in the eye of the beholder.
Location wise there is an excellent Euro Spar, petrol and Lidl within 5 minutes walk and 30 mins walk tops will take you right into the heart of Portrush.
Big shout out for the Mermaid at Portrush harbour where we had one of the very best meals any of had had in a very long time anywhere, and the harbour bistro which was great for fabby lunches.
Goes without saying this is a great central location for the Giants causeway Dunluce castle, Portstewart strand and the Glens et al which is why you are probably here afterall, unless the attraction of Barrys or the NW 200 is enough on it's own!
The owners are very well organised, helpful and great communicators to ensure those first few minutes into the unknown are well supported and easy.
If we were asked for any improvements we would suggest that wifi internet these days is the norm, although I believe that there is a new Portrush wide general access service (incl the beaches!) coming real soon and to be fair to Gerard he made it clear that there was no wifi right from the off. There are plenty of locations nearby where wifi can be found including the excellent cafe / bistro right beside Barrys. I can't remember the name just now but it does great home style baking, ice creams.and sea views from the veranda.
One very last point is that in the "user manual" it asked that the dining room was not to be used which if you had booked with a view to having a formal dining event would have been a bit of a show stopper so maybe that should be removed from the description if that is the case.
Overall though a full and well deserved 5 *'s
After a long drive, it was so pleasing to get settled in this clean, modern and spacious dwelling. The house is well equipped; and the location is great with supermarket nearby and also close to Portrush Harbour. We cooked great meals in your lovely kitchen and sat around the big table putting the world to rights well into the night. Thank you all the thoughtful touches - its obvious you take pride in this place and want visitors to feel pampered and at home. The Antrim coast is so beautiful and we shall want to come back again and stay in this house.
This 'home from home' was a wonderful holiday retreat for our family of six-Dad, Mam and four adult sons. The property is so spacious, was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed. It is in an ideal location for local attractions-so much to see and do we could have easily stayed longer than a week. The owner was extremely helpful and always ready to answer any queries. We've already recommended the property to friends and family so- thank-you Rosetta for providing the perfect holiday retreat! The Barber family.
