“Home from Home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We stayed here as a family with 2 teenagers and 2 ten year olds. My partner has family in n ireland and we were attending a wedding, but decided to book for aweek. The house was spotless, with welcome pack and more in cupboards.
Reggie and Marbeth were waiting to greet us and talked us through everything we could need to know ref the house and surrounding area. The bedrooms were very comfortable, and we all felt very rested while we where there. I cant say a bad word about the place and We were sad to leave, it really felt like home.

We have already made a booking for next year.
It is ideally situated for travelling to carrick arede giants causeway ,anywhere really, good shops in the village, superstores close by in ballamena.

“Perfect - well situated, peaceful and quiet!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Great self-catering holiday home; clean and well equipped and located in a very quiet and peaceful cul de sac. The very picturesque Galgorm village - everything from home bakeries to an Indian restaurant – is just around the corner and of course the renowned shopping town of Ballymena is five minutes up the road. Add to that the fact that the spectacular Antrim coast is just a short drive away and you couldn’t want for more! Will be back next year.

“Highly Recommended! We couldn’t be happier with this property and our stay there!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013 for a stay in April 2013

We couldn’t be happier with this property and our stay there! It is very clean, cosy and well-equipped with homely touches. We arrived to delicious scones and Slemish cakes with hospitable touches like fresh milk and butter in the fridge. Three double bedrooms with built-in wardrobes and a spacious hallway all added to the sense of space. It is in a very peaceful, residential area yet close to local amenities, perfect for exploring the coastal towns of Portstewart, Ballycastle and Portrush as well as the beautiful Glens of Antrim, the Old Bushmills Distillery, the Giants Causeway and the Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge! Ballymena had many things to see and do; we would recommend Seven Towers Leisure Centre. We enjoyed a trip to the fantastic Ulster Folk and Transport Museum which is great for all the family. The owner could not have been more helpful. We felt it was our home and it was the basis of our great holiday!
