“Great holiday rental with spectacular views”
Reviewed June 22, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

This is the second time that we've rented out this property for a two week holiday in Scotland. The location is ideal for visiting a number of areas in Ayrshire. Close to the train station, Saltcoats beach, and places to eat. The rental is clean, comfortable, and has plenty of space. Highly recommend this rental.

“A really enjoyable stay”
Reviewed May 27, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Marina View is a spacious and light flat. The views over the marina, and looking out towards Arran are superb.
The flat is pleasantly decorated, and very warm and clean. The kitchen is well equipped and the sofas and bed (we only used the double) comfortable.
As well as sailing from the marina on our friends boat, we also took the train from Ardrossan Harbour to Glasgow to visit the Huntarian , and took the ferry to Arran for the day. Both were extremely convenient, not to mention enjoyable trips. We also found everyone we met in and around Ardrossan to be friendly and helpful.

“Lovely Apartments”
Reviewed March 24, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Tony met us at the apartment and showed us around and also left complimentary tea, coffee, milk and biscuits which was a nice touch.
Apartment was clean and tidy, has everything you need with lovely views of the marina and Arran.
Would highly recommend this accommodation if you are staying in the area.

“Could be lovely”
Reviewed September 18, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Tony is a very pleasant chap, but his beautifully positioned apartment now needs an update and a good freshen up. We were most worried aBout the very difficult to operate doors into the flats and then the actual property , he gave us 2 sets of keys 'in case one doesn't work' the thought that if there was a fire is quite frightening. I don't write this lightly, I really was concerned so we actually left the flat early. it was quite grubby and with a dirty sheet in the cupboard and very unpleasant tea towel left in the kitchen.it was not somewhere we wanted to be.. The shower was also awful, and shower tray grubby, all plugs and chains were broken on the sinks. I refused to cook in this accommodation, I won't list everything but this could be so different if some money was spent on a refurbishment. This is an honest report and future occupants would be wise to take note.

Thank you.for your comments. We are amazed that you were worried about exitting the apartment. Doors do not need the use of any key to exit. There is a manual turnable knob to exit . Keys are only needed to enter the apartment..We are sorry the plug chains were broken in the bathroom. This has now been repaired so that plugs can be removed without the need to get hands wet. I am easily contactable during guests stays and always rectify any faults in the apartment quickly if informed.

This apartment is lovely, modern, clean and well- equipped to accommodate small groups and couples. We had a warm welcome from the owners who took great care to ensure we had everything we needed. Lovely views of the water and fantastic sunsets! Well located for ferries and easy access to a variety of restaurants and pubs. Located in a quiet spot which was relaxing and calm.

Mariners view was absolutely filthy the ensuite was pink with bacteria and the shower hose was black which was coming off each time you used it,the main bathroom was much the same only there is a hole in the wall and paint flaking off while you used it.the whole apartment was dirty.the kitchen was awful too sachets of 2013 coffee to use and the owners couldn't even leave a pint of milk it was awful.we read the reviews about the property and thought we were booking a luxury apartment,how wrong we were.the decoration was dire paint flaking off round the balcony doors,the wires from the TV and hub were hanging off the wall and not covered up which is not safe.towels were stinking and tea towels,we had to buy new ones to use,we were so disappointed .i don't know how the owners are allowed to hire this place in the condition it is in.

Thank you for the review. The apartment was inspected by yourselves on arrival ( as is the case with all guests), and all aspects concerning operation of appliances and equipment was explained and demonstrated at that time. All were met with approval as was the cleanliness of the apartment. it was stated that milk was not required as you had got some from the supermarket.( Complimentary tea and coffee are supplied for our quests if requested as well as shower gel and shampoo ) There were a total of 10 towels for use and some of which were new and unused. The only as aspect of your comments that needed to be attended to was a small section of flaky paint by the balcony door. This has now been put right and took approximately 15 minutes.
At the time of arrival all guests are asked to contact us for any reason as questions or problems can normally be answered or solved within an hour. In this case no contact was made until after the apartment was vacated.
We continue to be amazed by the comments in this review as all our previous guests over the last 10 years have been very happy with the apartment.
