"Comfortable, cosy in winter, walking distance from the town and easy driving to a wide range of amenities"

"Good family accommodation"

Whilst agreeing with the previous reviewers, I feel some comment should be made concerning the accuracy of the publicity for "The Crescent." There were indeed facilities:dishwasher and washi… More

Could we just state that this holiday home is none profit making and requires constant review on all amenities that we can ecomnomically supply to cater for all customer needs.Gas heating, electric, linen and towelling are all included in our pricing and nothing is metered or extra charges made.However there are always those who would abuse our trust and misuse the facilities in a wide variety of ways.We constantly ponder on the best way to tackle offenders so as those with good intent do not suffer. Do we withdraw the facility or increse the rates,neither being a good option, for customer service.However we decided to withdraw the washing maching from use as not everyone requires this facility. The dishwasher on this occasion was broken by the previous visitor and unfortunately this reviewer suffered as a result.We were not aware of the fault soon enough to effect a quick resulution to the problem which has proved disappointing to all concerned.We will not be removing this facility as a result and can only offer a sincere opology for the inconvienience.The use of the washing machine is under our review and upon request can be included at time of booking.Could we just clarify that the reviewer did not abuse our property in any way and thank them for constuctive comments. KIND REGARDS TO ALL.

"Perfect for a quiet break"

I stayed for 4 nights with my mum, who needed to be able to have wheelchair access. The Bungalow is spacious, clean, has all amenities that you could need. I found all equipment eg, cooker, heating, Tv, dvd player, Shower easy to use. It was lovely to be able to sit out in the private back garden using the Patio set. It was also handy having a Spar shop just 5 mins walk away to stock up if needed. It wasn't to far a walk into town center and to seafront. Though I did find it slightly up hill when pushing wheelchair, but there are some streets less hilly than others, as I discovered. A Trip on the boat to Raithlin cost £12 Adult. I have no hesitation in recommending The Crescent which is set in a lovely quiet residential area , great base for exploring the Antrim Coast. I would also like to thank Jean for all her help.

"Great House"

Myself, husband and 2 children (8 and 6) stayed here for 4 nights. The house was exactly what we needed. It has everything that you would have at home. It was lovely and warm once we got the heat up and running and room sizes were suitable for our stay. The local shop is 3 minute walk away. The beach is lovely at Ballycastle and there is a big playground also near the harbour. We ate in O'Connors pub and the food was great. We found the people so polite and friendly everywhere we went - giants causeway, rope bridge, etc. Would def recommend The Crescent as a base to explore this wonderful part of Ireland. We had fabulous weather to top it all off and we were sad to have to come away. Thanks to the owners of the house always polite and helpful when we spoke to them. Will def be returning at some stage.
