“Great Location, lacking in other areas”
Reviewed May 29, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

I will start with some positives: It's next door to a Maxxol/Spar and just around the corner of beautiful Stricklands Glen and coastal path. Awesome location! Also close to main roads, so driving around doesn't take long. It's on the main level, so those with young children or those who can't do stairs, you are in luck - we appreciated being right next to the parking lot. The other tenants in the building are friendly. TV has cable.
My husband would say this apartment "oozed Ireland". It certainly has the old charm of Northern Ireland.
Although this apartment met our needs for giving us a place to stay, there were numerous things we had issues with. A "welcome manual" would have been nice (there was none), with an explanation of how the heating and water heater worked (what to do or not to do, if they were on a timer, just some basics for us Canadians who aren't used to the N. Irish heating systems) , what we were expected to have clean by the end of the trip, where the garbage bin for the apt was, explanation about wifi (there is NONE. NO free wifi!!! Only if you are a BT member, which we are not because we are from Canada. BIG problem), and how/when I could get a hold of the caretaker I went to her house to ask some questions and she was never home. I couldn't call because I didn't have a phone (from Canada) and couldn't email because I had no wifi. Prior to arrival, I had excellent communication with the rental owner. But once I arrived, like I said, I had no wifi therefore couldn't contact anyone. We eventually just figured things out. It seemed like the heat and water heater was on a timer (instead of us being able to control it ourselves, which we could do at our previous house in Bangor that we rented), but we couldn't figure out what the schedule was. This would have been lovely to know in a "welcome manual". We turned on the water heater each morning, but didn't have enough hot water for a shower till over an hour of waiting, and then it went cold within a couple of minutes after jumping into the shower. Thankfully the apartment had a couple of space heaters, which I could place in my 1 year old's bedroom to keep her warm, and one in the living room to heat it up. Without them, we would have been freezing. As well, the floors were not very clean when we arrived and we could see cobwebs in the corners of the rooms. With my young children crawling around, I had to do a quick cleaning.
I would hesitantly recommend this vacation rental to friends...after I tell them our experience.

Close to railway station, shop, off-licence and the lovely coastal path. This two bedroom apartment was ideal.
If more than two people staying it needs more towels.
