“Perfect Property”
Reviewed 11 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Can I just begin by saying the 2 reviews Harbourside Cottage received is a poor reflection on it's actual number of visitors, all of whom have enjoyed it as much as I did, there should be another 4-5 reviews, people maybe just forgot to review, or they want to keep this beautiful property a secret, either way this rental is a must if you are considering staying in Garlieston.
The property is even better than it looks in the photos. It is very well appointed and very cosy. I had a mix of weather when I stayed here. Beautiful sun, wind and rain, all of which added to my stay.
The owners gave us a lovely warm welcome, and were quick to assure me they were only a phonecall away, as I was to be staying in the property for four days alone.
From the window seat upstairs you can watch the tide come in and out, watch the fisherman and the boats at the quiet little harbour.
There are some lovely walks, and the local people are very friendly. The spot where the property is located is not far from the caravan site, and some other more modern holiday rental properties and homes. So where Harbourside is private, it is not isolated. I felt very proud to be staying here during my week, especially when you notice the admiring glances from passersby.
I would love to return here in the future and will be recommending it to my friends and family. I had a thoroughly enjoyable seven days of rest and relaxation.

“Fabulous Harbourside Cottage”
Reviewed 7 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

A wonderful cottage in a terrific location for exploring the Galloway/Dumfries region. The cottage is completely new and well equipped and very comfortable.
The hosts are lovely and extremely helpful and ensure that your stay is a memorable one.
