Our stay at this fab house was perfectly co-ordinated by the owner Paula from beginning to end......
Communication was easy, nothing was too much trouble and there was great flexibility in Paula's approach. Both from accepting paypal for deposit payment, putting an extra bed in the second bedroom, to posting our son's accidentally abandoned, but adored cuddly toy home first class post. What more could we ask for?
Well read on....
On arrival we discovered an extremely stylish and well appointed property. The kitchen was spacious comfortable and very well equipped. Even the most demanding of guests would be hard pushed to find something missing or wrong. Top notch appliances and definitely not the feeling of second class rental property exuded.... this was not someone's cast offs but definitely the best of the best.
The décor was well planned and executed with real charm and elegance. I especially liked the eclectic mix of contemporary versus antique. Antique mirrors, windows, and interesting and varied artwork.
One particularly welcome surprise (as a mum of two - oh the glamour!), was the wash room at the back of the garage. A place to have the washing machine whirring away, out of earshot. Plenty of space and light to iron and hang out clothes to dry with the creative use of the extendable drying line both inside and out!
The outdoor space was so tranquil. Water feature, Wow... Paula I will be in touch when I am in a position to add one of these to my own garden to find out where it's from!! This is a relaxing space. So well planned and surprisingly private. A triumph.
The living spaces are small but perfectly formed. Gas fire, plenty of comfortable seating, coasters, TV.s in all rooms. A downstairs cloakroom with hooks for all number of guests.
The bedrooms are just what every guest hopes for in a base.. a comfortable bed and enough storage.
The main bathroom offered a twin aspect. So bright, yet not uncomfortably clinical, offered warm water all day long (turn up the boiler thermostat if having a bath) and plenty of soft towels and storage.
The local area musts;
Ba Won; I discovered this accidentally and what an absolute find! Satay Chicken is to die for!
Ballyholme Beach.... so beautiful. Less than 5 minutes walk.
Centra... top of Windmill Road - a handy shop for cheap essentials.
Plenty of amenities within walking distance; off sales, pharmacist, dry cleaners, café, newsagents.
Lovely house, very comfortable and beautifully decorated. Everything you could want for a holiday let. Owners extremely helpful. Location great, very near to village and beach.
Tinamra was a great find and incredible value.
Paula was so friendly and helpful .The accommodation was beautiful and immaculate.Lots of great features,good beds loads of fluffy towels and a outstandingly equipped kitchen.
Don't get in supplies till you have checked all the extras available eg. coffee, condiments,food wraps etc,etc,I have never stayed in such a well provided setting.The owner has thought of everything to give the best possible holiday.The garden is quiet secluded and sunny.
In a very handy location
We hope to return soon

The house is fantastic, well appointed and equipped, clean, light and spacious, and with some pleasant outside space. It is also well situated, being near the beach at Ballyholme, not far from the town centre, and 2 minutes walk away at most from the local shops. We enjoyed our stay here very much, and have no hesitation in recommending Tinamara as a great place to stay in Bangor.
