  • "Lovely apartment with great courtyard in excellent position."

    Highly recommend

  • "A comfortable, relaxing garden flat."

    The beds were very comfy, quality mattress, duvet, pillows and linen. Window dressings were very nice. Bathroom excellent, shower a joy! (sometimes they're not) Kitchen was well equipped, and a pint of milk was part of the welcome tray. Smart TV and WiFi facilities worked well. Central heating impressive. The living room furniture was comfy, throws were here and there. And of course the garden was as pictured.. A little sun trap. Fairy lights in the evening. I'm trying to think of a negative, but it is as described, and I wasn't disappointed. Round the corner from the bus station.. And you can see the sea from the bedrooms...

    Thank you so much for your wonderful feedback, Pat. I'm delighted you enjoyed your stay at Garden Apartment and found it so comfortable. I do hope to welcome you back the next time you fancy a wee break by the sea! Kind regards Sue Property Owner

  • "The apartment was lovely."

    really clean and well equipped and Sue, the owner was really friendly. We didn't really like the town very much as it was a bit run down. We had a few nice walks along the beach - which is the best bit about the town. There was an ice cream shop round the corner to the apartment which was really disappointing, however there are some good restaurants in the town particularly the Rock Pool - fish restaurant.

    Thank you so much for your kind feedback on Garden Apartment. It means a lot to me. I am sorry that you found Ayr itself disappointing. I will admit that the excellent road and rail links to Glasgow have meant that many big names have left Ayr High Street in the last few years. However, we do have some lovely parks, great golf courses and interesting historical attractions. The apartment is just walking distance to the Gaiety Theatre, live music venues and brilliant restaurants. It makes a great base to explore the really stunning Ayrshire & Arran region. I hope one day you'll give us another chance to show off this amazing area to you. Once again, thank you for your feedback. Property Owner

  • "The facilities in the apartment were great, all clean and well equipped."

    The road outside the apartment was quite busy, and with the bedrooms at the front we were woken a little earlier than we’d have hoped. Parking in the nearby car park was fine, especially once we realised we could pay online and so didn’t have to dash out to the car at 9:30 every morning. Checking in & out was easy and hassle free.

  • "Meet & greet guests, information provided helped us a lot for local shops things to do, information leaflets, provided milk for our tea that was amazing, opportunity to contact owner if we needed anything, really enjoyed our stay, also contact before we arrived, and lovely txt message before we left, very understanding to our delay in turning up."

  • "Ayr has fabulous restaurants and a beautiful beach."

    The accommodation is well place for both. A few minutes walk from the town centre, with easy access to the rail and bus system. There is a free car park at the end of Cromwell Road, a few minutes walk away. It wasn’t a holiday for us, we were travelling back for a family funeral, but the flat meant we could stay with our two grown up children, just a few minutes away from my windowed mother in law. So she had space to grieve but we were close at hand. We will definitely use the property again.

The property

Found in the town of Ayr, a popular seaside resort, is this ground-floor apartment with great access to the sea and a variety of amenities on your doorstep.

Suited to couples or even a small family who want a trip to the seaside as well as soak in the gorgeous Scotland countryside, this property makes for a fantastic base to travel along the Western coast of Scotland.

Hop up the three steps, make your way through the communal hall to your front door on the right, and come into this delightful apartment, heading into the living space through the entrance hallway.

A bright and open room thanks to the French doors leading out to the enclosed patio letting the light flood in, this is where you will enjoy relaxing with your loved ones.

A dining area provides you with a perfect spot to gather around for meal times, while the plush seating will be a comfort after a busy day exploring.

Turn the TV on and watch as you begin prepping dinner in the kitchen area, home to several essential appliances for your self-catered stay.

Move across the wood floors and step outside into the courtyard on a summer morning with your coffee to begin the day feeling refreshed.

Enjoy a hot shower in the bathroom where a bath with a shower over lives, as well as a basin and WC, and continue getting ready for the day in one of the bedrooms choosing from a king-size or a twin.

Both bedrooms benefit from stunning sea views, with the quaint Isle of Arran being visible on a clear day too.

Affording excellent storage space is a built in cupboard-turned-wardrobe, leading to the king-size room with a unique curved wall, beautifully presented and decorated in a simple and effective style, you are sure to love this sleeping spot.

Take a stroll down to the sea to experience Ayr's lovely long and sandy beach, complete with a delightful esplanade perfect for walking along.

Also on the promenade, the kids can enjoy the massive play park, or even have an afternoon at Pirate Pete's where the local children have birthday parties and love the soft-play areas if it's too cold outside.

For a spot of culture and the arts, the Gaiety Theatre is just a 5 minute walk around the corner, with a varied choice of eateries, bars, pubs and cafes on the way, or within a short walkable radius including The Treehouse, Cecchini's, The Rupee Room, Cafe Monza, Smith's, The Smoking Goat, Macfarlane, and for a later night out, Mecca Bingo too.

If you want to snuggle up for a night in to plan your day ahead, the local favourite fish and chip shop Wellington's, is a minute's stroll away for you to experience the best fish supper in Ayr, right next door to the award-winning Renaldo's ice cream shop.

The highly up-to-date Citadel Leisure Centre is also a mere 9 minute walk away and offers a range of sports classes, a fully equipped gym and swimming pool which is also great for the kids.

You can hire bikes closeby and cycle all the way to Greenan Shore with breathtaking sunset views over the iron bridge, where you can feed the ducks, swans and the only goose at the mouth of the River Doon.

Visit the birthplace of Scotland's national bard, Robert Burns, on the outskirts of the town at the Robert Burns Birthplace Museum for some fascinating local history.

A bit further afield, there are regular bus and train links to the historic city of Glasgow, as well as the seaside town of Largs, where you can catch a quick ferry to the Isles of Arran, Bute and beyond.

Another favourite haunt of many of the locals is golf, with three public golf courses nearby you have an excellent selection.

Garden Apartment is an ideal base for exploring this lovely area of Scotland.
