  • "The Seashells was a perfect holiday home in a perfect location and the owners couldn't have been more helpful and I would like to thank them on behalf of my family and myself for making our stay so enjoyable."

    The beech was 5 minutes away and easy access to the towns nearby and we had plenty to do and see thanks to the information provided by the owners

    Thank you very much George for your very positive feedback. We would have to agree that SeaShells is well located and the perfect base to discover the beautiful Causeway Coast. We are so glad that you all enjoyed your stay and that the property was to your liking. Would just like to thank you all again for choosing SeaShells for your stay. Always welcome Neville & Donna.

  • "We loved the house and found most things we needed."

    We would have liked a larger table with at least some chairs (for our elderly backs), but all 10 of us could sit down to eat together which was lovely. We found some of the beds narrow for a couple, but, fortunately ,there was a sixth room that we used. One thing we missed was hooks for jackets in the hall and in the bathrooms to hang clothes and towels. Also, the internet works very well in the sitting room where the modem is, and less well elsewhere. A more central location would help. But these are small things. Overall, a super house in a great location. We were ten 60+ adults, and we thought the house was perfect for us. Spotless, cosy and highly recommended!

    Thank you Una for your positive feedback. As it is a very big house we would probably need a booster to strengthen the WiFi signal to other parts of the house but glad that you found the property comfortable,cosy and to your liking. Always welcome. Neville & Donna. Property Owner

  • "The place was immaculate."

    Comfortable beds and plenty of space for a family of 12. The two sitting rooms were a bonus, a big cooking range and a lovely dining area. The outdoor area was secluded and fenced in to keep our wee ones safe and we were just a 10 min walk to park and beach. Wonderful

    Thank you very much Carol for your very positive feedback. The property is great for larger family breaks and the enclosed garden is definitely a bonus when there is younger children in the party. It was a pleasure meeting you all and hope to see you all again in the future. Always welcome at SeaShells. Neville & Donna. Property Owner

  • "A clean, spacious and very welcoming home from home."

    My only criticism would be the benches around the dining table are not very comfortable for the older generation, it would not stop me visiting again though.

    Thanks Dorothy for your review, sorry about the benches but we changed to them as it gave our guests a bit more room round the dining area and they seemed a better option but so happy you all enjoyed your stay and hope to see you all back in the future. Always welcome. Neville & Donna. Property Owner

    The house had everything and more and was perfect for our 3 families to be together. The host, Neville, was really helpful and accommodating which was really appreciated. Will definitely be back and would recommend it to other families looking for a spacious holiday home.

    what a home.... everything is absolutely beautiful, and the location was just perfect with only a short walk to the beach. The owners are lovely. Neville is so kind and left over a bbq when a few extra friends arrived to enjoy an evening.
