Seems to be a range of differing expectations here, but I have to agree and go further than the Feb 2016 review. There was no way of finding the house still, if I hadn't looked for backyard photo re Google Earth and read his description.(Waterfoot, not Cushendall, and still no door sign) . Got keys via local children who happened to see us stood around. This house ( and Waterfoot also actually- saved by the only well-stocked Spar-type shop and the beach, otherwise I'd look elsewhere coastal in this nice area) is obviously suffering from lack of investment or even just basic attention. "High Standard of Accomodation" is I feel plainly misleading- Generally "ok" maybe -but worse than that, was distinctly well worn and even bit on the grimy side and if you delved too far- eg on arrival found the kitchen had strange odour then located putrid food in saucepan in kitchen cupboard (held my nose and put it outside to scrape later); freezer door ajar and ice overflowing, similarly scraped later; 5 out of 12 lounge/kitchen ceiling lights were out, previous inhabitants socks and other bits down sides/ under beds, one bedside lamp between 6 beds, garden trellis slowly falling down, no bin in kitchen ( resorted to hanging plastic bag from door). All storage spaces seemed to contain random worn odds and ends as if the house had been well used by children, then things just pushed away.) Lounge is the only pleasant enough room. The back yard was a doubtlessly functionally useful but again now looking unloved.On the positive side, parking was easy, ( safe even with a few late evening joyriders roaring past the lane alongside en route to the nearby beach car-park for a while on both evenings,- obviously a lack of local entertainment for youth ), wifi worked well and there was a good supply of other visitors leftover toiletries. We also washed everything before use and treated it a bit like camping- I can see it would be passable as a very cheap holiday let with house full of children,( hence good value), but we left after 2 of 3 nights and returned to civilization. Pity overall, as it could be vastly improved with a couple of days, even hours of effort .I can supply photos if needed, but really I'd rather forget.

Beautiful home from home holiday! Big back garden, close to shop, bar and most importantly a stunning blue flag beach! Central location to discover the glens of Antrim or to just simply relax and absorb the amazing views! Great place for my young family to get away from busy work life and enjoy quality time together! Will definitely be back and recommend to friends!
We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to the Antrim coast and our stay in Waterfoot Beach House. We found it difficult to find the house as it was late in the evening when we arrived so maybe a clearer number on the door and the name " the beach house" would help future guests find the house. The house was in a great location for accessing the Causeway Route and all the main tourist attractions. It was an ideal house for a young family as Waterfoot is a lovely quiet village. Lisa was very helpful whenever we contacted her prior to our stay.
We stayed in February and there was a Gale blowing the whole time we were there, the house has an open fire and was such a welcome and cosy place to return to.
The owner was very helpful and arranging collecting keys was easy even when we weren't exactly sure what time we would arrive.
We even braved the beach which is just a stone's throw from the back door.
Would certainly stay again next time we're up that way.
the title beach house made the place sound amazing. It is infact on the main street in Waterfoot and located at the end of the Terrace, Took us ages to find it as noone knew of Beach House... it was perfectly adequate for a stay of a weekend. I am not going to lie, the kitchen pans and cups etc were not clean and it had the feel of being someones grannys house that they now rent out but it suited us fine... as long as we pre-washed everything before we used it in the kitchen!
A massive thank you to the owners for being kind enough to post back our passports to us after my delightful 3 year old managed to hide them in one of the rooms!
So friendly, easy to book, beautiful location, lovely property!
Loved playing scrabble!
Thank you so much! We will definitely be back!

We were very comfortable in this cosy home. Plenty of room and wonderfully quiet. The location is right by the sea--gorgeous. The village is quiet but you can be on the road sight seeing very quickly. Parked safely right outside. The owner kindly booked a meal at a local restaurant for our first night as we were arriving late. She also left us milk for a welcome cup of tea on reaching the house. Highly recommended.
