“Heaven's Bay”
Reviewed 28 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Just returned from a wonderful week in this beautiful apartment (we stayed in 'Baywatch'). The apartment was spacious and had everything we needed for a week's relaxing holiday. The view from the balcony is beautiful, at any time of the day, and any keen golfer would appreciate the extremely close proximity to the golf course. The location is ideal, being so close to Belfast by road, and having good rail links to Belfast and further afield. The grandchildren stayed with us over the weekend and loved the clean, safe beach and rock pools and exploring Crawfordsburn Country Park which is on the door step. In the visitors' centre there is a small exhibition aimed at younger children which they enjoyed and a good cafe whose tea and snacks we enjoyed, but which also provides inexpensive hot meals.The apartment and its location would appeal to most holidaymakers, overlooking the beach and being close to good walks and beautiful scenery - the Mournes are a short drive away - yet not far from airports and the city. Very comfortable beds and sofas, both welcome after a busy day.
We experienced some minor glitches with the boiler, which were speedily rectified by Jenny who both visited the apartment, and arranged for an engineer to attend.
In summary, we had a great time in this lovely apartment and would definitely return, given the opportunity.

“Excellent holiday accommodation that exceeds expectations”
Reviewed 13 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

The was our first stay here and it more than lived up to the expectations set by previous excellent reviews. The standard of the accommodation is first class. The position and consequently the views of the Helen's Bay, Belfast Lough and the golf course are a delight. The proximity to Belfast City Airport and Belfast is very convenient. We will be back for sure!

“Luxurious and tranquil beach house with mesmerising bay views”
Reviewed 3 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Beautifully decorated beach house, no luxury spared. Not fussy or overdone at all in terms of the décor; I didn't have to worry at all that my active toddler would break something or hurt himself, which was a huge coup for me! Great attention to detail and thoughtful extras from our modest, unobtrusive hosts with freshly cut flowers and a welcome package of goodies waiting which was so appreciated coming off a long haul flight with a toddler! Expansive windows and a balcony exposed mesmerizing views of the water; I especially loved watching the distance lighthouse at night, so relaxing and peaceful. An award winning beach with beautiful soft sand lay a stones throw away, which was perfect for my young son to run around on in bare feet and release some energy! I would dearly love to keep this place a secret but judging by the screeds of names and glowing reviews in the visitors book, word has long since spread about how wonderful this place is and the hosts really deserve the glowing reviews they are getting. Wonderful vacation, we will have no hesitation staying here again, only qualm is that I will have to make sure I book well in advance to beat the competition!

“Amazing views and ultimate comfort”
Reviewed 26 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We have just come back from a long weekend at Helen's Bay with our two girls (age 5 & 7). The apartment is beautiful and it's obvious the owners have thought hard about how to make your stay as comfortable as possible. It's the little touches like the large super soft bathroom towels, the tassimo coffee machine and the supply of beach towels, that make you feel well looked after. The kitchen is well equipped (essential when you have two young children) and the girls loved the 'upside down' layout with the beautiful living area on the top floor, which made the most of the breathtaking views.

The location is ideal - practically on the beach (which is clean, sandy and even has rock pools to explore) and only 20 minutes into Central Belfast. There's also a golf course on your doorstep and Crawfordsburn round the corner (with its yummy Woodlands Cafe). We will definitely be back!
