“Best host!! Relaxing getaway <3”
Reviewed 4 January 2017 for a stay in December 2016

My week at the Place Above has given me hope in humanity! Geoff was an amazing host going out of his way to ensure we were comfortable and enjoyed our holidays. With the location being quite remote, a car is quite necessary for the stay. As our luck would have it, the only one of our group who could drive sprained his ankle making us turn to public transport for the week. Even with this unfortunate turn, we managed to cover a number of places all thanks to Geoff dropping us off to the nearest train station (Ballymoney 8.7miles) or bus station (Bushmills 4miles) whenever we needed.

As far as the apartment goes, it was better than home! The living area with tv (lots of games and movies for the child in you!!) and open plan kitchen is perfect to lounge and have a relaxed holiday while making yourself all the comfort food you love. The kitchen is stocked with all the basic utensils and we were even given some fresh eggs in the mornings! We did come prepared with all other groceries and toiletries.

Finally, to give the place an extra boost, it is set in a gorgeous location...surrounded by farmland on all four sides you have wonderfully unobstructed views of the sunrise and sunsets...but our favourite part of the day was once the sky grew dark and we could sit out on the porch star gazing. We were lucky to have clear skies for most of our holiday so braving the cold to stare up at the night sky was absolutely worth it!!

We will all be back again...several times over! :D

It was an absolute pleasure to help. I certainly wasn't going to let a sprained ankle spoil your stay. We certainly look forward to welcoming you again - don't forget to bring your telescope!

Very best wishes and thankyou so much for your kind words.

My apologies for the delay in responding to your comments, which we really appreciate. We were on our own holidays when you arrived and our stand in for cleaning the apartment was ill so we had to use a family friend at extremely short notice. I do apologise for the items mentioned and will ensure everything is taken care of.

Thankyou once again.

I do apologise for not having responded to your review sooner. I'm not quite sure how it slipped through the net. You're most kind and yet again we were so blessed to have such lovely visitors.

Sincere thanks.

Many thanks for the feedback - it is invaluable.
There was a rush to have the apartment ready and the hoovering was undoubtedly not completed satisfactorily.
We have replaced the grout a number of times but within no time fake tan stains it :-)
We will do a complete regrouting.

Thankyou once again.

“Great location, great apartment, great weekend away”
Reviewed 29 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Myself, my husband and 2 American friends had the pleasure to stay in the Place Above in April for lovely nights. The apartment has every facility you could possibly require. Geoff the host is superb and so friendly. The location is great with tourist attractions roughly 20 minutes drive away. I knew the area well having spent my childhood holidays in Portrush. Mountsandel is just up the road, as is Castlerock beach and Mussenden Temple. I'd recommend having fish and chips in Chequers in Portrush. No visit to The Place Above should not included dinner in the The Tides Restaurant - which Geoff kindly recommended to me. He has a wealth of information in the apartment for you on your arrival. I've stayed in many places but the Place Above is by far the best one. His location as I mentioned in perfect. You get to see the stars and are surrounded by peace and quiet. His fresh organic eggs are to die for. I will definitely becoming back.

“Comfortable Launch Pad for Resting and Sight Seeing Northern Ireland”
Reviewed 20 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

This cozy loft is everything it is advertised to be and more. It is quiet, well kept, close to Giant's Causeway, the rope bridge, Duneluce castle bush mills, and half a dozen awesome little seaside villages. The Landlord is the kind of guy you'd want to keep in touch with after staying there. Chickens kept at the main house might even lay some eggs for you.

“Great place”
Reviewed 6 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Stayed here for 3 nights with hubbie and 2 kids. Geoff was very welcoming and friendly. Inside was lovely, this is an upstairs apartment but it is much more - spacious, shower, bath, dvd's, computer and all mod cons including tvs in the bedrooms which was great for the kids to unwind. The place above is very secure not only for parking but also with kids as they could play outside as located well off the road with a secure garden. Location was great Bushmills less than 15 mins and the dark hedges 15 mins opposite direction. Really enjoyed our stay here
