Visitor Reviews


" Photos on website don't do justice to property it is wonderful. "

Mrs Q Cleveland

" I would recommend the location and the property, with reservations about the above items. "

Mrs R South Yorkshire

" The property is fantastic with room for four couples without getting on top of each other. The views are stunning. All rooms are en suite. Hot tub was great, with views out to sea. We all had a fantastic time, including the dog, which we were pleased that the property took, one of our main reassons for booking - that and the wn-suites. "

Mrs W Gwynedd

" The website pictures and description do not come anywhere near the reality of how wonderful this property and surrounding area are. Everything exceeded my expectations! It was my first time at Island View (and also first time anywhere with Hoseasons) but it definitely won't be my last (for either)... "

Miss F Merseyside

" The property was superb; tastefully renovated Art Deco. Furnishings were to a very high standard. It was spotlessly clean. The cinema room and hot tub were first class. The area was peaceful and beautiful. I would thoroughly recommend this residence to couples and families alike. "

Mrs H South Yorkshire

" It was a fantastic week-end, very relaxing, views and house are stunning and the hot tub is a must, you are sitting in it looking out a the views, freezing outside but you are nice and warm. Would definitely book it again. "

Mrs J Renfrewshire

" Island View is lovely, the location is stunning and the house is luxurious, I would recommend it with no hesitation. "

Mrs C Cumbria

" Perfect for any member of thr family young or old. Fantastic house spectacular views and coudn't improve it in any way. "

Mr A

" A fabulous house, very well equipped and with stunning views. All the rooms were furnished very well with beautiful accessories and everything you could need for a perfect holiday. The garden was amazing, fully enclosed and equipped with a BBQ and patio furniture, and the hot tub was wonderful. We enjoyed a nice meal in the Harbour pub, and would highly recommend the Ruppee Room Indian Restuarant in Ayr. The nearby beaches were dog friendly, especially at Croy just up the road and the little town of Troon. Loch Doon was well worth the visit and the forrest drive provided spectacular countryside views. We just didn't want to leave and will book again! "

Miss C South Yorkshire

" The property is fabulous with stunning views of Arran. An ideal get away from it all holiday. "

Mr W England

" Beautifully modernised home, very spacious with 4 bedrooms and 3 sitting rooms (one of which is a home cinema room), very comfortable and well furnished. Garden was lovely - fully enclosed so great for dogs. Lovely view from the house - Isle of Arran and sea and spectacular at sunset. Would definitely recommend and will definitely be going again. "

Mrs B Staffordshire

" Fantastic view. "

Mr D South Yorkshire

" A fantastic, quirky house in a lovely area. We were quite happy to sit and look at the sea views either from the kitchen/living room window, master bedroom window, hot tub on the roof or TV room windows. Lovely garden room overlooking nice garden area and countryside beyond. Bedrooms were all lovely and a good size. There is lots to do in the area but it was difficult to move away from the house and sea view. The harbour area which is only a short walk away is lovely and peaceful. Take your wellies and have a good time in the rock pools. "
