We stayed here for a week with our 3 small children and my parents. The house was very well equipped, furnished to a high standard and very clean. The patio area at the back has plenty of furniture and is not overlooked. It is only moments from the beach and harbour and the Bayview hotel is easy walking distance for a meal or drink. The boys enjoyed having a tv and DVD player in their room and the beanbags were a nice touch. We had a wonderful stay and hope to return.

“Luxurious accommodation.”

Stayed in this house for a week at the start of July 2013 having stayed in it on a number of occasions before this. House is very well equipped and luxurious - has everything you could need. Roger is very helpful and replies to any queries very quickly. Also flexible on arrival and departure times where possible - very accommodating. The house is well positioned - close to beach, harbour and hotel in Portballintrae. Would definitely recommend this accommodation.

“A great property for a family get-together.”
Reviewed 20 May 2013 for a stay in March 2013

We rented this house for a family get-together at Easter 2013 and had 4 adults and 3 children (6,7 & 9) staying. The accommodation was very good - nice bedrooms, lots of bathrooms, and enough space for children and adults not to be on top of each other. We did lots of walking both straight from the property and having taken a short drive and all really enjoyed the beautiful coast. We really enjoyed ourselves and are planning to repeat the trip next year. Thank you.

We stayed at No 6 The Anchorage for a long weekend in May 2013. We’re a family of 6 with 4 children ranging in age from 5 to 16. The accommodation was excellent. It’s 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms are split over 3 levels, with plenty of room for everyone. The kitchen is well appointed and has everything you could possibly need. The cleanliness was outstanding, everything was spotlessly clean. With the beach at the front and a kids playground to the rear, there’s plenty of things to see and do. We walked to the Giant’s Causeway along the coastal walking track, which took us about 40 minutes (walking at the pace of a 5 year old). The scenery is spectacular and the track is well laid out and maintained. We also took the heritage steam train to Bushmills, which was great fun. The area of Portballintrae is well set up for walking and cycling and I’d encourage you to go for a walk and explore the majestic coastline. Our hosts, Martin and Janette, were warm and friendly and we thoroughly enjoyed our time at The Anchorage.
