“A Superb Base to Explore a Superb Area”
Reviewed November 6, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Really enjoyed our stay here. Excellent weather helped, of course, with great views across the sea to Scotland to eat breakfast by whilst seal watching. Apartment was well equipped, with a good kitchen and lounge, wetsuits for the kids to borrow for a swim in the sea (essential, even in August), a TV to follow the Olympics and broadband to research what to do the next day. Bridget met us as planned on the first day, and was very helpful in getting us oriented. Cushendun itself is a pleasant village with a small shop and a gem of a restaurant, and only a short drive from the Causeway coast, which well deserves its reputation. OK, there are quite a few steps up to the apartment, but that just helped keep us fit. Can't recommend highly enough.

“Beautiful Apartment, Peaceful Surroundings, Wonderful Stay!”
Reviewed October 1, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

I had the pleasure of staying in this lovely apartment for two nights. My only regret is that I didn't stay longer. Bridget met me just as soon as I arrived in the lovely town of Cushendun and made sure I was comfortable before leaving me to my holiday. The apartment is very comfortable and well equipped with everything i needed. The view is spectacular and the tranquility cannot be described. The people in the town shops are SO friendly and welcoming and a swan frequents the waters of the harbor daily. What more could you want? Beautiful hikes right outside the door too! I've been home for two weeks and I'm ready to go back! Thank you Paul, Mary and Bridget...I hope to return to your beautiful corner of the world someday very soon.

“Lovely place to sta”
Reviewed September 28, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We love Cushendun and we were really happy to find this apartment. The apartment had everything we needed from kitchen equipment to the wetsuits. We swam in the sea every day and cooked nearly every night

The apartment was warm and welcoming with the most amazing views and we spent happy days on the beach and equally happy ones playing games in front of the fire

Cushendun is the most extraordinarily peaceful place . A real escape from a hectic world. We have just booked to return next summer and we can't wait

Reviewed November 7, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Can't really add much to what's already been said; Cushendun is beautiful and unspoilt, the people are friendly, Paul is great to deal with and the flat is just right - have been telling all our friends to go!

“Really excellent apartment in an unspoilt part of the Antrim Coast”
Reviewed September 19, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We rented this apartment for a weekend in Sept 2015 - I grew up at the start of the Antrim Glens and had not really been back to Cushendun/dall for many years .... so we booked this, brought the kids and bikes and had fantastic weekend. We all loved the apartment - very well appointed and a real home from home ... cared for and well maintained - and as a penthouse apartment views over the bay were spectacular. Bridget gave us a fantastic welcome ... a true gem of the Antrim Glens ! ... Very Highly Recommended ... and I suspect we will be back v.soon... ( we also got involved with the book sale in the 'deconsecrated' old church and had a tour of the old house next door after we got chatting to some very friendly Cushendunners ...!) Thanks Paul for the opportunity :-)

“Great apartment great location”
Reviewed July 11, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Apartment lived up to all the reviews and really was excellent with superb views, location was brilliant for visiting the North Antrim coast and glens even went down to Titanic Belfast which was a highlight and only an hour away. I can safely say a have never said the word beautiful so many times in one week ,Ratlhlin Island, Giants Causeway, Carrickarede rope bridge, Torr head, Ballintoy harbour, Puffins, Grey seals all beautiful. Only had one minor problem with the apartment whilst we were there but this was dealt with promptly by Bridget who was a star and most helpful. Couldn't recommend the place enough.
