  • "The bungalow was lovely as well as being safely enclosed for our little dogs."

    Would recommend this property to anyone. Its one of the best we've stayed in.

  • "Lovely location for touring the North Coast of Northern Ireland."

    The cottage had a lovely secure garden for the dogs which they loved. Had what I need for a self catering holiday, ie, a washing machine although loud, it was well equipped, a good shower and comfy beds. The dishwasher was missing a weighted front so could be a bit dodgy but it did the job. A lovely stay. Definitely recommend.

  • "Great house, very clean."

    Great location for North Coast. Only very minor drawback was the internet connection. One person on line, it was fine but when a second person tried to connect....it didn’t work unless you were beside the router. Otherwise excellent accommodation

  • "This was a return visit to Kewanee as we liked the bungalow and the area it was in."

    It is very comfortable and suited our needs well. The garden is large and our dog enjoyed the space and the grass immensely. The bungalow is in a great location to explore the north coast of N.I. and there is also plenty of local walks. There are plenty of lovely coffee shops and restaurants in Portstewart and the surrounding area to enjoy also.

  • "We had a wonderful stay at Kewanee a really nice clean modern property."

    The garden at the back was really big and private. It was in a great location for amenities, Tesco 5 minutes walk and the sea front 20 minutes leisurely walk The property is a great base for exploring the North coast and all the wonderful beaches and sights. The owner was very responsive with a couple of queries we had seeking information. We definitely would recommend this property and hopefully we will return again in the future.

  • "Fantastic property to holiday in."

    2 of us stayed at this property with our 2 motorcycles to explore the coast of northern ireland. We were able to keep our bikes securely in the garage at night. The property is a wonderful home from home and has everything you would need to make your holiday as comfortable as possible. Although the property advertises as suitable for six it can actually accomodate 7 as it has 2 double beds, a single and bunk beds, with 2 bath/shower rooms it is more than enough for any family. Excellent!

  • "Kewanee is a great well equipped house in a nice quiet cul de sac but close to Portstewart promenade, Tescos and all amenities."

    The back garden is great for children and very safe as it is totally enclosed by a high fence. House is very clean and very well laid out. As a family we loved our trip to Kewanee and hope we can return in the future.

  • "The weather was fantastic, so we were able to enjoy the coastal walks and beaches as did our dog."

    The neighbourhood of the property was very quiet and it was close to everywhere we wanted to go. The property was comfy and warm and the garden was a really great size and very secure for our dog. There are some lovely coffee shops and restaurants in the area so we also enjoyed trying places we haven't tried before.

  • "A lovely property on the outskirts of Port Stewart about 25 minutes walk from the seafront and the Strand beach."

    The property is in a quiet residential cul-de-sac, close by to a supermarket, petrol station and other local amenities including a fish and chip shop. There is also a lovely park nearby with play facilities for young children. The property itself is like home from home. What we greatly appreciated was the enclosed large rear garden for our dogs. I would definitely recommend this property for anyone visiting the north coast of Northern Ireland.

  • "We had a fabulous time."

    The bungalow is lovely and spacious and very comfortable. What made the holiday for us was the large rear, totally enclosed garden. It was perfect for our two dogs and when they're happy we're happy. The location is good for access to port Stewart strand and the promenade is walkable just beware of the uphill on the way back .. Might not suit those with walking difficulties. We highly recommend and will be back soon

  • "What a beautiful home to stay in."

    Everything just perfect. So clean and comfortable. A true home from home experience with lots of space to relax. The little extras ie milk and orange, sweets and biscuits etc were very welcoming. Garden excellent especially if you bring a dog which we did. Location perfect. Just out of town in a quiet area. Play park a few minutes walk which our little one loved. We would highly recommend and if we do a staycation again this is where we would make our booking.

  • "Great base to explore around the north coast."

    Clean with great facilities and dog friendly. Would benefit from an enclosed garden and better WiFi but apart from that I would thoroughly recommend.

  • "We felt at home from the moment we got there."

    There were little touches like milk and eggs in the fridge, salt, sugar etc. The house was very close to beaches, restaurants etc. Best of all were the local people - so friendly, helpful and welcoming.

  • "Reception at the cottage by the owner was very friendly and facilities were explained fully."

    Owner was also very helpful with places to eat, where to go, etc. The bungalow was immaculate. The accommodation was spacious and very comfortable. This was a superb base for the local area, but would advise that to get the best from the holiday you really need a vehicle. Only suggestions to the owner would be to arrange hooks in the en-suite to hang towels and somewhere to hang outer coats in the entrance hall. Put mat inside the front door to protect the lovely wooden floor. These are helpful suggestions NOT criticisms as the bungalow is excelent.

  • "We were met by Lorna the owner who was jolly and friendly."

    She showed us around and gave us the keys.The bungalow is bright and roomy and well appointed.We soon got to grips with it.There is a conservatory at the rear which gets really warm and is ideal to air washing.Kewanee is situated quite a way out of Port Stewart and is a short drive in. I would have liked sky tv and there were no rubbish bins in any room. There was clean towels in the airing cupboards and the beds were comfortable. There is an access and egress gate situated in the fencing giving access to the main road.Tesco supermarket is a short walk from the property as is a petrol station with a spar attached. Interestingly no Supermarkets were open until 1pm on The Sunday although Tesco hours will be 10 until 6 from the 12th May to September. The Strand beach is a short drive away.All local resorts have wonderful sand.Visits to the likes of carrick arede and the giants causeway are expensive.It pays to be a National Trust member.Port Rush golf club is brilliant.There are so many things to do but be aware the ferry from Mcgilligan point is very hit and miss. We will definitely return to the area as we loved it.
