This year has seen our third holiday stay in harbour view.
It is always clean,fresh and well kept.
The owner is from the local area and is very helpful.
Many good places close by and other neighbouring villages if you enjoy dineing out.
In general a lovley area with lots to do for adults and kids alike.
We always enjoy our stay here.
The house was brilliant everything there that we needed, beautiful setting, we will be back! Very reasonably priced as well.
Having read the last review on tripadvisor I almost didn't book. But I decided to take the reviews on an overall basis. I can report that I'm glad I did. Our stay at Harbour View was everything we had hoped for - comfortable, well equipped, homely and picturesque.
We stayed for two weeks and found the owners to be very helpful and considerate. On one occasion I asked about the location of fishing tackle shops nearby and no more than fifteen minutes later the owner turned up with rod and gear for me and my son as well as advice on where to try. There was also a minor issue with the heating which was resolved very swiftly.
The house itself is a few steps away from the working harbour as the name suggests. You can see the boats, seals and fishermen from the house. The village has a lovely award winning seafood restaurant just across the road from the house. There is also a chip shop a few doors up and a chemist and garage with a wee shop and off license. Nearby you can find the Portaferry Aquarium, Kearney Fishing Village owned by the National Trust. There are many beautiful beaches nearby also.
This house was much bigger than we expected and catered for our needs well. We found it spotlessly clean and well maintained. Would recommend without hesitation.
The location is great , parking outside front door.
Directly opposite front door is a working harbour. To the right is a sandy beach.
We stayed for 4 weeks mid December 2016 to mid January 2017.
The weather was very mild for winter ,which allowed for lovely walks around the harbour, beach and coastal pathway, which well lite at night.
Best sea food restaurant in northern ireland 2016, across the road from the house and local fish & chip shop about 2 mins, local grocery shop a couple of minutes further.
Gilliam ( the owner) was very welcoming and friendly,she lives locally and available if needed. Allowing for total privacy if required.
Harbour view had all the kitchen items etc and bedding, towels you could want
House is modern, very warm and we would recommend this holiday home to anyone.
House is very reasonably priced for the comfort and freedom required to fully have a home from home holiday.
We would visit again and would recommend to friends.
The house is set right at the harbour and has beautiful views. It has ample parking. The house is spacious and immaculately kept. The owners are lovely and were very helpful at resolving any problems. The kitchen and eating area are small compared to the rest of the house but we managed fine (2 adults and 3 kids). Bedrooms are beautifully decorated and the beds are very comfy - there is only blinds on the 2 bedrooms upstairs. The Quays restaurant across the road is recommended - beautiful food and family friendly. The house is in a great location for exploring.. Would stay again.
Efficent and business like handover of house from agent. House decorated and furnished to a high standard. My wife is in a wheelchair and it had good level access. Close to Portaferry but 16 miles from Bangor. Excellent restruarant accross road. Very good chippy 2 minutes away and good Chinesse 4 minutes away. Garage shop 3 minutes away.
Liked the village very much and all the locals were very friendly.
Exceeded my expectations.
Will definately go again.
Good value for money
