Booked a last minute 3 night stay. Owner could not have been more kind, helpful and accommodating. The property was lovely, well presented and all you need was available. The location was truly special with beach and sea feet away - beautiful. If you want to relax and get away from it all this is perfect.

“Memorable self-catering property in a great location”
Reviewed 4 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

4 of us stayed one night in the Sea Captain's House at Dunaverty Rock, while walking the Kintyre Way, which passes very close to the property. The window seat in the living room provides a great view across Dunaverty Bay, with lots of wildlife-watching opportunities, while out the back of the property is a lovely little cove surrounded by cliffs and more wildlife. A memorable spot.

Donnie the owner is particularly friendly and helpful.

“Unique and characterful self catering in a fabulous location.”
Reviewed 8 December 2015 for a stay in December 2015

Spent two nights in the historic Captain's Quarters during a recent tour of Kintyre. Donnie, the proprietor, was on hand when we arrived on a dark and cold December night. He couldn't have been more welcoming, even setting and lighting the log-burner for us to get the place heated up. He is always available to give information and help, and nothing is too much trouble. The location is dramatic to say the least, all crashing surf and wheeling sea-birds. Donnie has renovated the well-equipped Captain's Quarters skilfully and is currently busy doing the same to the smaller but equally charming adjacent Summer House. We would love to return one day to see the result!

“High point of the holiday”
Reviewed 11 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Dunaverty Rock Sea Captains Quarters was far and away the highlight of a five day driving holiday around the Western Highlands.
The location, the warm welcome, and the comfortable accommodation made our stay unforgettable for all the right reasons.
The view across to Ireland was spectacular in the daytime and fantastically exciting at night with the moonlit breakers crashing on the beach under stars unaffected by light pollution.
Donny, the owner, couldn't have been more welcoming or helpful, whether advising on parking ("not there, the tide might take it") or pointing out the remains of the castle and the burial site of the Chiefs slaughtered in the massacre ("a greater treachery than Glen Coe).
The apartment was light, airy and spotless with thoughtful touches from corkscrew to cafetière with coffee beans.
I'm looking forward to visiting again with the family.

“Fantastic Location, Great Accommodation, Friendly Owner”

Fantastic location right by the sea and by Dunaverty Rock. Wonderful views, peaceful location.Great approach across Dunaverty Rock golf course. Accomodation is spacious, very comfortable and well equipped. Was spotlessly clean but has a lovely homely feel. Really lovely sitting in the very pleasant lounge looking through the large windows onto the shore watching the birds and on one evening a seal on a rock. Bed one of the most comfortable we have ever slept in.
Very warm welcome from Donnie the owner who even helped carry bags in. He is really knowledgeable on the area and very helpful.
Village near by has a wonderful tearoom which also does breakfasts.
The Sea Captain's Quarters are a really lovely place to return to after a day exploring the area. Felt at home straight away. Would certainly recommend highly.
