Reviews from our guests

***** We could not have struck any luckier! A spacious, comfortable and well equipped house, Helen went the extra mile to ensure our stay was a wonderful one...even finding hairdressers numbers for us! Any problem was dealt with promptly...shower stopped working, fixed that same day! She herself was a treasure!!!!! The setting was beautiful...11km of beautiful beach to watch and walk in a lovely part of Ireland. Wouldn't hesitate to return next time we are in the area. Thanks Helen for everything!!!!

***** Our wider family of 7 adults, 2 children and 3 dogs stayed at this fantastic house over New Year's 2015. Having been looking for a base somewhere along the North Coast to venture out and see some of the local sights, we couldn't have stumbled across a better house which would be suited to the needs of almost every party/group. The house itself was fantastic - a modern, cosy, warm home with 4 bedrooms and ample space for everybody to both sit together and enough space to comfortably have places of privacy to retreat back to if needed. Not to mention the value - incredible value for what was on offer. Helen and Dave were brilliant for us - Dave met us on arrival and extended us the warmest of welcomes, leaving no stone unturned and ensuring we were as comfortable with the house as we could be before he left us to it. Helen similarly, kept in touch via email regularly prior to spending our stay there and ensuring we had enjoyed ourselves after leaving. The best feature of this house was undoubtedly the view - initially we found it strange that the lounge and kitchen were upstairs/above the bedroom, however you can understand why as soon as you see the glorious panoramic view from the lounge windows, overlooking the beach and seeing as far as Donegal in one direction and the local attraction of Mussenden Temple in the other.

The house is conveniently located - quiet enough that you're not bothered by people or too much road noise, while close enough that all local attractions on the North Coast are only a short drive away. Not only that but there was ample parking in the driveway and garaged area - more than enough space for our 4 cars, with enough room for additional cars if needed. Each one of us who stayed would thoroughly recommend staying in Downhill House and are already looking for excuses to get back up there later this year! A great find. P.S. Wi-Fi provided was very fast (much faster than what we had anticipated due to proximity to beach etc) - this came in very useful for one of our party wanting to watch the football online!

***** We had a wonderful time at Helen and Daves house. If you want to get away from it all its the perfect peaceful spot!! There was plenty of space for 4 adults and 2 kids (plus the dogs!) we loved the upside down lay out making the most of the amazing view across the sea and Donegal!! The house was really warm and cosy and very well equipped, we were able to cook every night. I must also add that we forgot a pair of jeans and wallet!! And Helen kindly met us at her place of work to return them the next day. I would definitely recommend a stay here.

***** Lovely house right next of the beach. Very close to amazing trails which give way to stunning views of the cliffs and the ocean. Optimally placed to visit all the fantastic attractions. The hosts have kept the place in immaculate condition. There is plenty of room with 4 bedrooms, one with en-suite bath and one with bunk beds, and a common bath. Kitchen is a well appointed beautiful warm place that opens to the living area which has a fireplace, decent electronics and wifi..Overall, perfect! am getting compliments from our friends on my choice for stay :) Thanks Helen for making sure we were comfortable and for leaving us milk, tea coffee, and other consumables!

***** Have been in many places in many countries but this cottage is unique both in location and design! We can absolutely highly recommend this. Cottage and hosts make you feel immediately at home. Cottage was very clean with a nice fresh smell. Well equipped and decorated. Enough to do close by as well: beach, hiking, biking, surfing or just a relax day in the cottage itself. Really the best cottage ever!

***** We had a brilliant time enjoying this great property, with its stunning views of the coastline. It is brilliant that the kitchen and living room are upstairs so that you can see the sea. The setting is just beautiful. Helen and Dave were absolutely brilliant hosts - providing everything we needed and more. They went above and beyond expectation to try and make us as comfortable as possible. The beds were great, the bed linen clean and fresh, and the whole place was spotless when we arrived. All the facilities in the house are fab and Dave and Helen made their barbecue available to us. We enjoyed that in the garden with the sunshine after we'd spent the day surfing. Everything we needed was available - the extra fridge space in the garage, the garden chairs. Just brilliant. Our whole stay was made comfortable easy - its just what we wanted. Dave and Helen, thank you so much.

***** Perfect location for any GOT fans. House is spacious and clean. Awesome view towards the beach. Nice villages near by to enjoy and explore. Our family enjoyed it so much and will love to stay in the same house on our next trip.
