Not "luxury"

  • 3 of 5

We were disappointed with this accomadation described as "luxury." Let me point out it was quiet and clean with comfortable rooms and handy for the beach.BUT the afternoon we arrived the dishwasher and bedside lights didn't work .The tv signal was so poor it was impossible to watch and two kitchen cupboard doors were off their hinges.Initially text messaging was good and we gave permission that first day for a handyman to call round during our stay. This was the last we heard and no one came to fix anything.Later during our stay we discovered the washing machine didn't turn on and had trouble working out the heating as their was no instructions .We were aware of having to pay for electricity but it

was a niggling worry that it would run out. Other reviews have advised maintence of equipment and a welcome book.I absolutely agree and the owner needs to take action on these comments.We didn't get what we paid for - this was not "luxury" and electrical item wise not even standard.

Good for the few days we were there

  • 3 of 5

The description led us to believe the apartment looked out over the waterfront but it does not. It is down an alley that looks out at garbage cans and others balcony. When we arrived we had no more clean clothes left and we were looking forward to doing laundry. The washing machine did not work but when I contacted Margaret she got back with me asap and Melanie the property manager was able to wash our clothes for us which was Great! Our first night there we werent able to sleep much as there was a huge party going on across the way. A lot of young drunk kids going in and out of this balcony with a door slamming every time they went in/outside which was about every 3 minutes (yes we started timing them)

Nothing Worked!!

  • 1 of 5

Stayed here for 7 days. Even though the flat was nice it self, nothing worked!! The washing machine, TV, most of the lights and the dish washer, only had two pans to cook with and could not get phone reception. We had to go to the caravan site to wash our clothes. We contact the owner a number of times and not one thing was done. We have been to Ballycastle many times and this was definitely the most disappointed of our stays.

Owner's Response: Unfortunately we had difficulty in locating our plumber during the period of your stay. I did, however, offer that my property manager could collect, wash & return your laundry which is a service we offer free of charge due to the recent problems with the washing machine which has now been replaced. You chose not to avail of this offer. I would also like to point out that there is a full set of saucepans & frying pans in addition to an oven & a microwave. Unfortunately phone reception is beyond our control & tends to be erratic in Ballycastle. I would also like to add that I responded to you promptly & had a number of telephone calls with you in an effort to sort out your complaints. It would also appear that the TV was working perfectly. It was checked out just after your stay, again, my husband spent a long time on the telephone with you trying to explain the TV controls. I am sorry that you had a disappointing stay in our property as we try to make every guest as happy & as comfortable as possible.

12 Harbor View, Ballycastle

  • 2 of 5

Nice apartment and great location in Ballycastle. We did not have use of the washer and dryer because it did not work. I contacted the owner twice and the apartment manager once and could not get anyone to service it. The property listing did not mention that electric service was not included, it had to be purchased!

Owner's Response: I am sorry that you did not have use of the washer / dryer. Unfortunately the plumber we normally use was on holidays & we had difficulty sourcing someone else who could come during your stay. You do not mention however that I offered that my property manager was more than happy to collect your laundry, have it washed & ironed & returned to you. The washer/dryer is now fully operational. With regard to the pay as you go electricity, we have listed on all the property websites (including Homeaways), that this is how the electricity is paid for in our apartment during guests stay. I also made you aware of this fact via email prior to your arrival as the meter has been upgraded. I'm sorry if you did not manage to notice this fact prior to you staying with us. I enclose a copy of the email you sent to me at the end of your stay: "We have really enjoyed our stay in Ballycastle and your apartment has been extremely convenient and comfortable. Unfortunately, we will be leaving a day early on Wednesday because of a change in our return flight. Since we are leaving early and we did not have the use of the washer and dryer, would you consider refunding the rental for the one night? Thank you very much." It is disappointing given your description of the apartment, that you only rated us as 2 stars...No other guests have ever rated us less than 4 stars. I cannot but wonder if this is beacause you did not receive refund for one night? Homeaway as the booking agency handle all the financial transactions so requests for refunds should be addressed to them. I hoped you enjoyed your time in Ballycastle . Wishing you & your family all the best !

Good looking property in beautiful location

  • 4 of 5

We spent a really enjoyable week here. The flat is well presented and clean, and has all of the facilities you need. Ballycastle itself is gorgeous and has the usual shops, cafes and restaurants you could want. The beach is lovely when the weather is good and there is a playparkfor the kids just outside the apartment complex.

Great location with easy driving access to interesting sites

  • 3 of 5

The overall location and apartment were well suited as a base to explore the surrounding Anterim coast. The two bedroom apartment was well suited for our family of three. It was comfy and spacious. We really enjoyed the Game of Thrones filming locations, Fair Head hiking trail, Rathlin Island excursion and Bushmills tour.

The inconveniences we experienced were having to figure out and purchase our own electricity plus the clothes washer did not work. The concept of having to "top off" pre-purchased electricity was new to us. It was fortunate that the grocery store was still open to purchase additional electricity credits when we came home at 6pm after a day of sightseeing to find we had no power in the apartment.

The property owner was very responsive to our inquiries and offered to get our laundry done. Our recommendation is that the instructions could be clearer and placed in a more obvious location in the apartment (such as a welcome book on the kitchen table).

The property has the potential to be a 5-star VRBO rating with some key modifications.
