“It's going to be hard to stay anywhere else!”

We stayed 7 nights and it was such a treat. I'm from Bangor so know the area and have stayed in many places locally - but it's going to be hard to book anywhere different in future! We loved being so close to the beach, walking to Holywood one day and down to Bangor another. Evenings on the beach when the day trippers had gone, or early morning runs before they arrived, were especially relaxing. My family and friends who stopped by were all very impressed , and keen to enjoy a coffee or wine on the balcony.
The bed was amazingly comfy. I never usually sleep the first night away, but the room was just so comfortable that I was out like a light.

“Relaxed luxury with an amazing view ”
Reviewed 27 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We stayed at Driftwood in July 2016 after staying at Baywatch last year. As repeat guests we knew what to expect and were not disappointed. Everything about these apartments is fantastic! From the location to the mod cons to the most luxurious bed I have ever slept in. The kids, 9 and 4 love the fact they can watch DVD's in bed whilst the grown ups can relax upstairs watching the lights from the ships and lighthouse over a glass of wine. Having in laws and close friends in Northern Ireland this is a fantastic location to meet friends and spend a day on the beach (you can pop back to apartment to fill the flask for tea and coffee as often as you want during a picnic) and then pop to Pickie Park in Bangor. We love it that much we have booked for Christmas. Can't wait to come back.

“Paradise”
Reviewed 18 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

the location was perfect, peaceful and beautiful.
The apartment was luxurious, home from home with everything you could wish for. The rooms were beautifully furnished very comfortable, clean modern. The welcome pack in the fridge very much appreciated. There are lovely pubs and resturants locally and the walks along the beach are beaurifull any time of the day. We would definately stay here again and have already enquired with dates for next year.
thank you for letting us share you lovely home.

We recently stayed here for 6 nights with our 2 young children aged 1&4 and we loved it!. We stayed in the driftwood apartment and we couldn't have asked for better accommodation. Jenny was very accommodating and allowed us to arrive a night earlier than booked due to a change in travel plans. We also left a baby monitor after us which they kindly gave to our in laws. The location is right on a beautiful beach which the kids loved. There was also lots of fab things for us as a family to do within 30 minutes of the location including W5 and the Pickie park in Bangor.
We can't wait to visit again next year.

“Absolutely loved our stay here”
Reviewed 19 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We stayed here for a week at the mid April, and we fell in love instantly.

This was a family vacation, we were travelling with a 16 month old and a 4 year old. The bedrooms were brilliant, comfortable beds, and the rooms nice and quiet, so peaceful nights all round. High chair was supplied as well, so we were very happy not to have to bring our own!

Lovely big TV in the living room with an Apple TV and a DVD player hooked up, so entertainment taken care of. A couple of radios & CD players supplied too. Two of the 3 bedrooms also had a small TV set as well. Wifi had good signal throughout the apartment, and the broadband speed was solid for streaming etc.

The kitchen facilities were great, loads of plates & cups. There was also a french press for coffee, and a small espresso machine for use as well. A lovely welcome pack was left for us with butter, milk etc, and a frozen pizza, all very well received!!

These apartments are very close to the beach, and ours had a great view overlooking the golf course as well. We spent quite a few evenings walking along the shore front. About a 10 minute walk from the visitor centre\cafe in Crawfordburn Park, and a 10 minute drive from Bangor.

Excellently furnished, luxurious and well maintained, we will definitely be back to these apartments next year. The owners were very friendly and helpful whenever contacted as we approached our holiday and throughout the stay! Overall, this whole vacation was an excellent experience.

We loved the "baywatch appartment", It was very large, clean and comfortable. The singel room however was a bit dark without any window. If we visit Belfast again we will gladly come back.

Just returned from a 4 night stay at this fabulous apartment. We travelled with two young children and we couldn't have asked for more. The location is out of this world with the beach and the golf course right on your doorstep. The apartment is kitted out to the highest of standards with everything you needed to hand. We had an amazing time and didn't want to come home. We'll definitely be back!
