“Home from Home, Fantastic!!!”
Reviewed September 6, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Just returned from a 2 night stay with Friends staying in this property. The house was exceptionally clean and so cozy. We attended a wedding at the musedean temple close by and was ideally located for this and any other trips around Northern Ireland, it's a great quiet location. Shops and beach all within walking distance The owners really take pride in this home and it thoroughly shows, can honestly say its the best holiday rental any of us have stayed in and would highly recommend. My husband and i are now looking in the diary to see when we can return with our children.

“Simply Ooutsnading”
Reviewed September 4, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Remted Casteshaw for 4 nights from Sat 29th Aug to Wed 2nd Septemeber with my fiancee and her family and our wee dog.

Firstly it's location is brilliant with a nice walk down towards Castlerock beach which was great for the dog. Very good central location in the north coast with Benone, Downhill, Portrush and Portstewart all near by. One day we got the ferry at Mcgilligans point (10 miles away) to go across to Co Donegal for a drive. On our last night we decided to have dinner at the Point Bar and Resturant (at McGilligans) and it was first class...good portions and just really tasty food - strongly recommend.

As for the Holiday home itself, its just a beautiful well kept property. Absolutely spotlesslessy clean and very spacious for a bungalow. 3 very good sized bedrooms each with double beds, 1 with a cot so very child friendly.

The kitchen was also very big with ample room to move around and lots of cupboard space with all the amenities, equipment we needed including a large fridge freezer. Also nice space in the utility room with a large bench for further storage and washing machine and tumble dryer which we didnt need to use.

The living room was very good size with comfortable leather sofas and large flatscreen TV with excellent picture quality. Having the free wifi included as well was a real bonus with excellent speed it helped us look up places to go etc

Also if you get the weather the back garden is fantasic with outside table and chairs and very spacious to allow our wee dog to run about and would be great for kids to play. It faces out into the caravan park so there are no other houses which can look in so its a very secluded well closed in place.

The house also keeps its heat very well and we never had to use any additional heating to the programme which was already set. Was really cosy and there is a thermostat in the hall which can be turned up or down if required. The shower is also brilliant with lots of power. As good as any hotel shower if not better.

This is simply a wee jem of a house hidden in casterock and would be perfect for couples, families with kids or even an adult group of 6 people and since it's a bungalow would also suit the elederly.

The hosts were very friendly when we arrived and even provided a small welcome basket with a few essentialls which was a lovely surprise .They also provide a good information sheet about how certain things work and information on the local area. which was great. After our stay our damage deposit was returned very quickly. Just a delight and no trouble with anything.

Simply fantasic in every way and will definitely be going back!!!

“Fantastic”
Reviewed June 26, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Castleshaw is a beautiful property with everything that you will need for your stay including a cot and highchair. Castleshaw is ideally located as it is a 5 minute walk to the beach and only a 10 min drive to Coleraine. We were very happy with our stay and will definitely return. Edward was very friendly and accomodating

“Above and beyond our expectations.”
Reviewed April 5, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

My husband and I have been wanting to visit Northern Ireland for years, and had high expectations. Edward offered us a great price, and we were already impressed when he sent a 'what you need to know' documents ahead of our arrival. Eileen met us at the house and we were pleasantly surprised at the welcome basket she had prepared. The house was immaculately prepared and beautifully decorated, and a lot more spacious than we had anticipated for a holiday home! Every amenity was provided for, and Edward and Eileen were both available when we had queries. The whole of the North Coast is absolutely stunning and Castlerock was the perfect base from which to explore the stunning beauty of the Causeway, Coleraine, Carrick-a-Rede, Bushmills, Londonderry, Downhill, Binevenagh and dozens of other stunning attractions. Our only regret was that we didn't get to see all that we wanted to! We unfortunately couldn't bring our furry children over from South Africa, but Castleshaw offered perfect doggy facilities, and we hope to return one day with the kids in tow.

“Everything a holiday home should be.”
Reviewed October 21, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We had a great week relaxing on the Causeway coast with Castleshaw as our home from home. It is a fully functioning house, minutes from the beach and railway station. Spotlessly clean on arrival, and easy to keep that way, even with a dog who has spent all day at the beach. The wood burning stove makes for cosy nights in after long days out.Edward and Eileen went to great lengths to make our stay a pleasurable one, including sending back the clothes we left in the wardrobe the very next day!

Excellent value for money, superior customer service and a great place to stay in a beautiful part of the world!

This house is an excellent base for the north coast. Great spacious house with a large back garden. My 2 big Labradors loved it and we were 5 mins walk away from the sea/beach. Janice was very welcoming on arrival and provided a thoughtful starter pack. We would definitely be back, we all loved the house and had a wonderful holiday. thank you
