“Stunning location”
Reviewed 20 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Just had 2 lovely relaxing days here in what is the most beautiful setting right on the beach. If you're looking for a quiet retreat then this is the place to come. Beautiful beach, comfortable and slightly quirky accommodation ( in a good way!!) and a very genial, helpful and most accommodating host in Donnie. Would throroughly recommend .

“Perfect, peaceful retreat”
Reviewed 23 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Often when you book a place online the photos make a space look far better than it is in reality - for this place I would say the opposite. The studio was spacious, warm and spotlessly clean with an incredible view. Seeing the moving water makes the space so peaceful and thanks to Donnie's kind suggestions of where to go and what to do we had a magical time in Southend. Thank you. We'll definitely be back.

booked last minute and was pleasantly surprised by the space! The place was perfect and we were welcomed by the owner and his son, they were so lovely, helping us with our bags giving us all the information we needed! Would definitely return! apartment looks straight out onto the beach and you can see right across to Ireland - only 15 miles away! Thank you for a wonderful holiday!

Enjoyed a glorious week here just chilling, playing golf and eating ! The cottage itself is spotlessly clean with excellent wifi connectivity and all modern appliances. Golf course at Dunaverty is superb and is only around a hundred yards behind the cottage, as for the view from the front, well it really is breathtaking at times. You simply must sit on the bench outside the cottage and watch the sunset over the beach, you will not wish to be anywhere else on the planet.

“perfect coastal getaway!”
Reviewed 10 June 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Really beautiful coastal location - only 15 mins from Cambelltown. The studio was very comfortable, clean and well equipped for all our needs. We had an excellent few days enjoying the stunning scenery and local cakes at Muneroy! Thank you Donnie for a wonderful stay, we would highly recommend this property to others!

“Lovely location”
Reviewed 8 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

We had a lovely stay at the lifeboat studio, Donnie the owner was so nice and made sure we had everything we needed. Was a much bigger space than expected but was still very cosy for us all. Although we had no signal, wifi worked perfectly for us.
Went to a lovely little cafe just 5mins away with the nicest cakes! We drove around and explored the area, views were amazing and everyone we met were so kind.
Definitely recommend!

“Worth 7 Stars Not a Mere 5 - Totally Fantastic”
Reviewed 1 June 2017 for a stay in May 2017

The Lifeboat Studio is in a fantastic location right next to the beach and the site of the old Dunaverty Castle and at the end of the Kintyre Way. The studio was exceptionally clean and all the beds were very comfortable for us four walkers. The shower was also excellent. It is a very peaceful location. Only minor points ( if you are bothered about technology ) is that the phone signal and wifi is intermittent.
The Owner Donnie is exceptional. He made us feel very welcome. He offered to do some washing for us and then drove us to Campeltown early the following morning refusing any payment so that we could catch an early bus to Tarbet and ferry to start the Cowal Way walk.
It would have been good to have stayed here for more than just the one night.
Sorry Donnie this page would not let me add any photos. Cheers Marc, Stu, Steve and Ned ( The WalkingTheBeat Team )
