“STUNNING ! A REAL STAR OF THE COUNTY DOWN.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

I travel a lot and have been lucky enough to have stayed in some pretty fab accomodations, from RAFFLES in Siem Reap to the LONDOLOZI Game Reserve in South Africa . Believe me, MOURNE RETREAT is right up there. I have NEVER experienced a rental with such luxury and such style . The attention to detail is exceptional.
For a start the location is breathtaking. It sits right on the water's edge,overlooking Murlough Nature Reserve, teeming with all kinds of birdlife, and Dundrum inner Bay. The panorama is straight out of a travel brochure! To the right is the lovely little town of Dundrum, complete with church spire and ,of course, the obligatory castle.To the left the majestic Mountains of Mourne......that's right, the ones that "sweep down to the sea!" Just a few minutes walk takes you to Murlough Beach and world famous sand dunes. If you had the energy a 20 minute stroll along the sand brings you to the bustling seaside town of Newcastle,where you could restore yourself in one of the many bars and cafes.
The house itself is an architect's dream. Built just a few years ago to the very highest specifications, it makes the most of its glorious situation. with lots of glass to make the interior light, bright and airy and to afford uninterrupted views of the scenery. One entire wall in the lounge consists of windows that are two storeys high , looking straight out at Slieve Donard. Spectacular!
The furnishings are of the very highest quality. Everything is stylish and well thought out, from the flat screen TV's to the Villeroy & Boch bathrooms, from the top of the range bedding to the designer white leather couches. The fitted kitchen would make Mr Bosch proud and would even raise a smile from Gordon Ramsey!
It's obvious that this place was never conceived as a rental but rather as a second family home put together with loving care and attention.It feels like a real privilege to be given the key to such a treasure and to be allowed to savour its many delights.
You could search far and wide but , trust me, you will never find better. Don't miss this gem.

“LUXURY, TRANQUILITY ....BLISS”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2013 for a stay in January 2013

• This house is truly seen to be believed, built by a prominent builder as a family retreat so filled with the best of the best! When we arrived the owner met us and was most friendly and helpful. A fantastic hamper with artisan style products biscuits jam butter bread tea etc greeted us. A very swanky Nespresso coffee machine was a delightful touch. The garden is amazing and very secure a great place for children to play very safely. The brisk walk to the beach is a must and no doubt had we come in the summer were we would have spent more time. We had another couple with us and we had a super time chiling in front of the roaring log fire on the designer leather sofa watching the mega flat screen tv with surround sound! Some bedrooms on the ground floor so perfect if mobility issues. Well priced for what you get, would esp. suit a few golfers with the nearby world class golf course of Royal County Down. My husband fell asleep on the massage chair in the mezzanine floor with full length picture window views of The Mourne Mountains. We didn’t get around to a game of pool on the full size table so we will just have to come back! Thank you for a lovely stay.
