“Antrim Coast Paradise”
Reviewed 25 February 2014 for a stay in December 2013

My wife and I stayed here for two nights in December last, and it was fantastic. Bridget gave us a very warm welcome even though we were late....blame the weather!!
The apartment is warm, clean and very homely. Just what we needed away on our break.
Even though the weather was very stormy, the views from this apartment were amazing, and so too down at the beach which is a stones throw away.
We were fully relaxed in the spacious Living Room, wether we watched tv or read our books with a nice glass of wine.
We would recommend this apartment for a stay without any hesitation, a real find on the Antrim Coast.
Thank you again to the owner for constant communication, and to Bridget.

“Home away from home but with fabulous views”
Reviewed 19 November 2013 for a stay in November 2013

We are a family of 4 (kids aged 9 and 5) travelling through Europe for 6 months and stayed in the apartment for 4 nights during November 2013. We felt like we were the only ones staying in the complex so very peaceful, secluded and relaxing. The apartment is incredibly comfortable, spacious, and the kitchen is well-equipped for any cooking/baking. The weather was somewhat inclement but the views were still outstanding. Great base for exploring the Antrim Coastline - we did a day trip to Giant's Causeway and an afternoon drive down to Larne via the coastal route - both highly recommended. Couldn't recommend this apartment highly enough.

“Fabulous”
Reviewed 8 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Can't find much fault with this accommodation. Good bits: view, cleanliness, equipment, king-size bed, open plan living and dining area, shower, peacefulness, welcome from Bridget, location, wifi. Bad bits: we were there for a week only.

“Perfect”
Reviewed 25 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

A beautiful apartment in a perfect location. Lots of time spent on the beach and in the rock pools. In the evening the view from the window was mesmerising.
Nothing was too much trouble and there was was excellent communication with Paul.
Thank you!

Many thanks for taking the time to submit such a positive review. Being at the village end of the apartments gives you great people watching time from the balcony, as well as the view of the river, bridge, harbour, Cushendun bay and Scotland beyond. Hope to see you again soon.

Best wishes,

“Perfect holiday in a great apartment in a beautiful location”
Reviewed 18 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Have just returned from staying at the Boutique Bothy and absolutely loved it. The apartment is extremely well kept with lovely finishing touches, and we received a warm welcome from Bridget. The views are amazing and could quite easily sit looking out from the balcony all day!
We loved the village of Cushendun - our 8 and 10 year old enjoyed playing on the beach, crabbing in the harbour, exploring the caves and befriending the village goat! The village shop is very friendly and has most essentials, and we enjoyed sitting outside the quirky pub next door for a pint of guinness!
It is also a great base for day trips - we did giants causeway, carrick a rede rope bridge and dunluce castle. There is also plenty more to see and do.
We didn't want to come home and are hoping to visit again.
