“Five star experience”
Reviewed January 27, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

We visited with family to celebrate an 80th birthday. The owner Margaret met us on arrival and could not have been any nicer. She had decorated the house with 80th banners and balloons. Made an 80th pavlova and had placed roses in the birthday girl's room. There was beer / cava on ice and the ingredients for a full Scottish breakfast in the fridge. The house itself is beautiful. Luxury all the way. Decorated to the highest standard and spotlessly clean. The house is very handy for all the sights of Ayrshire. If you only book one self catering house this year, I would advise this one. We hope to go back soon. Thanks Margaret.

“Can't wait to get back”

We have stayed at The White House on several occasions now and the service just gets better. Going again in a couple of weeks and cannot wait. Perfect for gatherings of family or friends and Margaret could not be more helpful if she tried. Truly a wonderful place to stay.

“Great house for a large gathering of friends or family”
Reviewed January 16, 2015 for a stay in December 2014

Would rate this as 5 star. We spent New Year 2014/15 at the house. We were 3 families of varying ages staying at the house and all thought the house was great. There was plenty of space for the adults to relax and the kids to do their own thing and also for all 12 of us to eat together and play games. The beds were very comfortable and plenty supplies of towels, linen etc. Margaret was extremely helpful (even to the point of buying a new food processor before we arrived). She had also left us some wine and beer and little packs of goodies for the children individually. Would definitely recommend the house.

“5-STAR HOME FROM HOME”
Reviewed December 30, 2014 for a stay in December 2014

Had a 5-star family reunion over Christmas week thanks to warm and attentive welcome and other surprises provided by owner Margaret. Really did feel snug and at home throughout the week in this renovated schoolhouse in Hollybush village, with touches of modern design style to the interior, especially in the spacious bedrooms. The pictures don't do it justice. When the weather is fair, the scenery is beautiful, especially down at the river Doon and further up the valley, and with historic Ayr and sea front not far away, even reachable with regular bus service almost from the door. Expect to be back !

Celebrated a friend's special birthday with 12 adults staying at the White House! A great 'Party House', from the well stocked fridge, to a fabulous pavlova and a warm welcome from Margaret. We all had a wonderful time and would definitely return. Fabulous!!

“Magic”
Reviewed September 30, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Where to start? This is an amazing house in which the owner has thought of absolutely everything. Birthday presents, wine, beer, breakfast pack...more than we could have anticipated. The rooms are gorgeous and spacious and the house was so large that even when full there was plenty of room for everyone. Beds really comfy and the bath in the main suite was fabulous. Loved it and hope to return. Thanks a lot, Margaret and Ryan.
