Our luxury 4 bedroom beach house with hot tub has spectacular, uninterrupted sea views across the Firth of Clyde towards the Isle of Arran. This gorgeous holiday cottage sits just 1 mile from the picturesque fishing harbour of Dunure with shops & a pub serving food if you don't fancy self catering. The historic town of Ayr with a larger choice of restaurants and shopping is just 7 miles away.
If you enjoy walking, this could be the perfect accommodation choice for you as you can roam around the fabulous beaches and rugged coastline direct from the beach house. Plus we also allow up to 2 pets to stay, so why not bring the much treasured family pets to enjoy your Scottish break too? Alternatively, if you like golf, the famous championship course at Turnberry is just 10 miles away or you can visit one of Ayrshire's many other courses. Then at the end of a glorious day, you can watch a film in the home cinema/entertainment room or just simply enjoy the stunning sea view. On the roof of the garden room, which is located behind the cinema room, there is your own private hot tub with built in sound system, enclosed in glass walls and a roof to also enjoy the views & relax in style.
There are some wonderful places for you to visit in the local area whilst you enjoy your holiday with us, including National Trust's Culzean Castle and Country Park. The castle boasts magnificent interiors, and the kitchen block was designed by the famous Scotsman, Robert Adams. The 600 acres of grounds are teaming with birds and wildlife. Just 6 miles away is Alloway, the setting for Burns Cottage, the poet's birthplace, another famous Scotsman. Alternatively you could take a local ferry across to the Isle of Arran or take a day trip to Ireland from nearby Stranraer.

The set up of this is house is perfect for a large family or 2. We have 2 young children and they loved it. All the rooms are big and bathrooms great. The enclosed hot tub means you can use it all year round. The house was very warm in October which was great. The location is amazing and a great walk down to the beach and local pub. On the down side there were little bits in the house that need addressing that are small but very frustrating. The to controls are broken, the knives are blunt and the large pan didn't work on the hob and a lack of tea spooners. On the whole all the kitchen utensils were out of kilter with the rest of the house, a small thing to rectify but when you are paying five star prices I expect 5 star standards. We would use the house agin and recommend to friends. The owners were very nice and helpful. Catherine, Rating 4 out of 5, Nov 2015.
Great venue with fantastic sea views. Very spacious comfortable accommodation - owners have thought of our every need to enjoy a perfect break. 'Small Kids' and 'Big Kids' loved the Hot Tub - one of the best we have experienced. Would definately recommend this property to others and certainly have no hesitation about making a return visit.

The cottage was fantastic. Beautiful scenery and a perfect way to have a honeymoon. We loved the experience and the location was fantastic. However the cottage was very cold on arrival and took nearly a day to get warm. We could not find the instructions for the equipment on the first few days. These should be kept somewhere a bit more visible. Rating 4.5 out of 5, Oct 2015.
Beautiful house and location. House could have been slightly cleaner but over all a fab stay. Bedrooms excellent as was kitchen even a wine fridge and so much room even with 8 of us staying. Hot tub wasnt working when we arrived but owner came out immediately to fix the problem and gave us 2 bottles of wine for the inconvenience . Definitely return! Susan, Rating 5 out of 5, Sep 2015.
Lovely bright spacious house with fabulous views. Ideal for 2 families of varying ages to share. The hot tub was very relaxing after a day out. Rating 4.5 out of 5, Sep 2015.
Very nice place to stay, scenery stunning from the front of the house. Facilities first class and hence worth the money. Simon, Rating 4.5 out of 5, Aug 2015.
Overall we had a wonderful week at Island View. All the rooms are spacious, clean and airy and the view across to Arran is amazing with changing moods all day long and into the evening. We had one or two problems. On arrival we had not received information about where to find the keys and couldn't get through to the owner by phone for quite a while. We had our elderly mother with us so it was not an ideal start after a very long journey. There was no welcome pack so we then had to set out again to get the basics such as milk and bread to tide us over. Also, the only working tv was in the sitting room, none of the others were working for the whole week and we had to call on our neighbour to sort out the heating. It is an expensive let so expected better than this. Mary, Rating 4 out of 5, July 2015.
