“Home away from home”
Reviewed 23 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Wonderful experience from booking of the property, communication with Paula and our stay there. It is a beautiful property and was such comfortable stay with close proximity to the local shops and the beach. Will definitely be staying again in the future.

“Great base for a Northern Ireland family holiday”

We spent 3 weeks during Christmas and January at Tinamara, and will definitely be returning. We were delighted with our welcome - the heaters had been turned on ensuring we were cosy from the minute we arrived; and the chocolates and prosecco were a nice touch. Christmas lights and baubles helped get us in the Christmas spirit, and when the owner heard we were planning to cook Christmas dinner at the house, she dropped around a new electric carving knife for us. I loved the soft large towels, the linen that smelt of lavender, a very well-equipped kitchen and crockery and glassware that was stylish and matching, not the odd pieces we have encountered in many holiday rentals. We have stayed in a few places in Bangor, and Tinamara is by far the best we have encountered, both in terms of quality and the ease of arranging the stay.

“A wonderful N Ireland holiday experience by the sea in Bangor.”
Reviewed 22 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We arrived tired after our sea voyage to find a fabulously equipped five star home near Ballyholme in Bangor. The rooms were all prepared to a high standard of cleanliness and a lot of thought had been put into the décor, furnishings and fittings. The house was well prepared and welcoming lights had been lit for us. A good range of basic provisions had also been provided. Each bedroom had plenty of storage space and beds were large and very comfortable. The extensive kitchen had every luxury appliance, it made cooking a joy - we made very good use of the chilled water and ice!! It was lovely to relax in the kitchen after a day's sightseeing. The dining room was a great place to linger over a meal - the local Thai restaurant providing some fabulous dishes. The Wi-fi was great for the teenager to keep in touch with friends etc. Huge bathroom with both large walk-in shower and separate bath was a luxury!! We spent most evenings curled up on the lounge sofa in front of a gorgeous fire watching our favourite DVDs. The driveway fits 2 cars easily for off road parking. To the rear was a lovely relaxing space - decked, with water feature - lovely for that morning coffee - always sunny (when the sun shone!) The laundry room was also well used after those wet returns from Ballyholme beach - just a 5 mins walk away - we went before breakfast most days.
All in all it was the perfect break for us (3 generations with teenager!!) - very quiet but within 5 mins walk of every convenience and that all important beach!! Suffice to say that we have already booked it for next July and we are all really looking forward to another wonderful Tinamara experience!!

“Perfectly formed, wonderfully located, home from home.”
Reviewed 13 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Our stay at this fab house was perfectly co-ordinated by the owner Paula from beginning to end......
Communication was easy, nothing was too much trouble and there was great flexibility in Paula's approach. Both from accepting paypal for deposit payment, putting an extra bed in the second bedroom, to posting our son's accidentally abandoned, but adored cuddly toy home first class post. What more could we ask for?
Well read on....
On arrival we discovered an extremely stylish and well appointed property. The kitchen was spacious comfortable and very well equipped. Even the most demanding of guests would be hard pushed to find something missing or wrong. Top notch appliances and definitely not the feeling of second class rental property exuded.... this was not someone's cast offs but definitely the best of the best.
The décor was well planned and executed with real charm and elegance. I especially liked the eclectic mix of contemporary versus antique. Antique mirrors, windows, and interesting and varied artwork.

One particularly welcome surprise (as a mum of two - oh the glamour!), was the wash room at the back of the garage. A place to have the washing machine whirring away, out of earshot. Plenty of space and light to iron and hang out clothes to dry with the creative use of the extendable drying line both inside and out!

The outdoor space was so tranquil. Water feature, Wow... Paula I will be in touch when I am in a position to add one of these to my own garden to find out where it's from!! This is a relaxing space. So well planned and surprisingly private. A triumph.

The living spaces are small but perfectly formed. Gas fire, plenty of comfortable seating, coasters, TV.s in all rooms. A downstairs cloakroom with hooks for all number of guests.

The bedrooms are just what every guest hopes for in a base.. a comfortable bed and enough storage.

The main bathroom offered a twin aspect. So bright, yet not uncomfortably clinical, offered warm water all day long (turn up the boiler thermostat if having a bath) and plenty of soft towels and storage.

The local area musts;

Ba Won; I discovered this accidentally and what an absolute find! Satay Chicken is to die for!

Ballyholme Beach.... so beautiful. Less than 5 minutes walk.

Centra... top of Windmill Road - a handy shop for cheap essentials.

Plenty of amenities within walking distance; off sales, pharmacist, dry cleaners, café, newsagents.

Tinamra was a great find and incredible value.

Paula was so friendly and helpful .The accommodation was beautiful and immaculate.Lots of great features,good beds loads of fluffy towels and a outstandingly equipped kitchen.
Don't get in supplies till you have checked all the extras available eg. coffee, condiments,food wraps etc,etc,I have never stayed in such a well provided setting.The owner has thought of everything to give the best possible holiday.The garden is quiet secluded and sunny.
In a very handy location
We hope to return soon

“Great place to stay in Bangor”
Reviewed 31 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

The house is fantastic, well appointed and equipped, clean, light and spacious, and with some pleasant outside space. It is also well situated, being near the beach at Ballyholme, not far from the town centre, and 2 minutes walk away at most from the local shops. We enjoyed our stay here very much, and have no hesitation in recommending Tinamara as a great place to stay in Bangor.
