Lovely apartment exactly as it was advertised, beautiful views and within easy walking distance from restaurants etc.
We stayed at this wonderful apartment for 4 nights in June. The owners met us on arrival and showed us around their beautiful home, we were delighted with how bright, spacious and airy it was and the views are exceptional, we spent hours just sitting looking out the windows and listening to the waves as we lay in bed at night.
The 3 bedrooms are all of a good size, two have sea views. The apartment is very private. The living room, dining area and kitchen are open plan and their are sliding doors that open up onto a small balcony area in the dining area. There was a handy welcome pack, with milk, butter, bread etc and there were some bits in the cupboard so we didn't need to buy salt and pepper, sauce and ice.
The apartment is just round the corner from the main promenade, with restaurants, coffee bars and bars in easy walking distance. Easy access to Giant's Causeway and the beautiful coastline.
I would recommend this accommodation to couples, families and friends.
Be warned, it's on the 3rd floor, 50 steps. It kept us fit.
Whilst tempted to keep this perfect heavenly place quiet in case it gets fully booked and we can't go back, it wouldn't be fair.
As a very hardworking couple with 4 children, ages going from 6 years up to 19 years, we were really looking forward to this holiday and it truly didn't disappoint. The lovely caretaker Eileen met us there with a lovely welcoming smile and hug and couldn't do enough for us. The owners are also fabulous, friendly and very helpful recommending places etc.
We walked into the living room and despite already seeing the lovely photo's on here, it still took our breath away. Spectacular, our only complaint, it has completely spoilt us for future holidays, I don't think we'll ever be able to find a nicer place. To sit in the most comfortable chair ever looking all round at the sea crashing in on the rocks, watching the boats bobbing along and falling asleep, looking out at the sea and listening to the waves is the most relaxing thing ever! The apartment is decorated and furnished perfectly. My husband who never likes to go away for long as he's a homebird, was devastated leaving it to come back home and we are already planning our next visit.
Portstewart is such a beautiful seaside town.
A must to visit - Giant Causeway, Carrick a Rede Rope Bridge, Morelli's Icecream Parlour in Portstewart, white rock beach (I think it's called on coastal route) and The Anchorage Inn for good food, drink and friendly atmosphere. We also did the causeway coastal route drive to Belfast 2-3 hrs, Crawfordsburn Park (has country walks, 2 beaches, waterfall etc) so much to do, we didn't want to do everything as we want an excuse to come back very, very soon ;-)
I had decided that this would be a holiday where the car stayed in the car park. We walked to all coffee shop / ice cream / promenade / pancake breakfast dates! I loved opening the bi-fold doors to listen to the sound of the sea. It was worth paying a little bit more for the sea view. The apartment was quiet, very clean and well-equipped. A lovely week at the seaside:)
