Our Family of 9 (4 adults and 5 children) stayed here for the past two weeks on a vacation from Canada. This house, location and Micheal (the owner) far exceeded our expectation!! We will not forget this vacation! The kids fell in love with this house!! It is beautifully done with lots of room for everyone! We enjoyed swimming in the sea and hiking the Mourne Mountains! The views are amazing and the kids loved loved playing in the backyard!! A short walk to town but we couldn't wait to get back to "our" house! would definitely recommend to any and everyone!!

“Perfect! Didn't want to leave”
Reviewed May 15, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

My family booked this house for a weekend, Mike was very helpful throughout the booking process and the house is amazing! The photo's don't do the house justice, house is very spacious and finished to a very high standard. The kitchen is amazing and excellent for large families. The location is close enough to the town centre without having all the noise that comes with it! The views are spectacular! If you want the perfect get away in Newcastle you should definitely book here. We hope to see you again soon.

“Fantastic 5 bedroom holiday home in a beautiful setting”
Reviewed April 18, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Very well appointed and spacious holiday home in a great location. Close to the town, shops, pubs and restaurants. The house is very well equipped, recently renovated and made a fantastic base for our large family group. The bedrooms are large and the 3 bath/shower rooms and downstairs WC meant that nobody got in each other's way. The fresh bread and milk left for us was a nice touch. The setting, close to the waterfront, is beautiful and the views across the bay from the bedrooms are fantastic, especially in the morning as the sun rises in front of the house.

Overall, a fantastic and luxurious property in a great location.

“Short break in Newcastle”
Reviewed September 21, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

person found this review helpful

I stayed here in August for a Friday and Saturday night with my extended family. The owner contacted me beforehand and was very welcoming and accommodating with check in times. The house itself is in a really good location, which meant we could walk to bars and restaurants easily. This was really handy as it meant we didn't need to spend money on taxis or have someone drive.

Inside the house is really nicely decorated. The furniture is modern and the beds are comfy. My family are pretty fussy about cleanliness so it was a big positive for us that the house was spotless. As well as the kitchen/dining room there is a large living room with a wood burning stove. The views from the rooms facing out from the front of the house over the water are great.

I'm sure it is not always possible but as there were no guests staying there the day we left the owner/housekeeper were also very laid back when it came to what time we checked out, which made a nice change from staying in hotels!

We would definitely stay again and hopefully will be back soon!

Liked best: The decoration and furniture are really well done and the house is in a great location.
Liked least: Hard to find any flaws. A very small one is that the tv doesn't have reception but there were loads of DVDs anyway!

“An absolutely stunning home in the heart of beautiful Newcastle.”
Reviewed August 22, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

My friends and I travelled up from Waterford to visit Newcastle for the first time. I was lucky enough to have found this beautiful house and even though the photos on the website are fab, the reality was so far beyond what we had expected. A real home from home with lots of attention to detail. There was 10 of us staying and we were absolutely blown away by the space and comfort it provided. The surrounding area is beautiful and the views from the house idyllic. Location is wonderful for anyone interested in hiking among other outdoor activities with the house situated at the foot of Slieve Donard. I would recommend this beautiful house to anyone and will definitely be planning a trip to stay there again.
