WELL PRESENTED SEMI-DET HOUSE IDEAL FOR RELAXING BREAK - SCENERY, GOLF, BEACH

County Londonderry House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, sleeps 6

The property is a three bedroom semi-detached house. It is situated in the attractive town of Portstewart on the majestic north coast. The town has a picturesque harbour and promenade with a two-mile long beach. On the Promenade you will find a children play area, paddling pool and more. The house is off the main road , literally about a six minute/0.8km walk to the Promenade.

There is an open plan Living/Dining Area and a separate Kitchen downstairs, with two double and one single (with sturdy bunks) bedrooms upstairs. The living/dining area, hall and upstairs bedrooms all have wooden floors. The stairs and landing are carpeted. Outside there is a garage where you can hang your wet suits, store your surfboards, bicycles, etc. There is quite a large front side garden and enclosed side and rear gardens to keep the little ones safe. On the rear patio there is garden furniture (table and chairs). Fuel for the fire is also available in the coal-house. Wi-fi can be requested.

There are so many things to see and do in the area and beyond. Here are a few suggestions;

- Stroll down to the Promenade and peruse the shops

- Walk from the house, over the hill to the coastal path, the Strand, Barmouth or the Promenade and beyond.

- Play bowls, tennis, putting, golf or surf on Portstewart Strand Within a few miles there are Golf courses in Portstewart (3), Portrush (2), Bushmills and a 9 hole course between the two Ports.

- to the east visit Dunluce Castle, Bushmills Distillery, Giants Causeway, Carrick-a-rede rope Bridge and Ballycastle and Rathlin Island. (Bring your National Trust Card)

- to the west visit Mussenden Temple and Downhill Demesne for a walk.(One of the most photographed scenes in Ireland)

- Travel by train from Coleraine to Derry/Londonderry, one of Michael Palin’s Great Railway Journeys. Walk on the historic Derry walls.

- A ferry will take you from Magilligan to Greencastle in Donegal where you can go for a wonderful days drive round the Inishowen Peninsula.

- You must check out the Antrim Coast Road, described as 'one of the top 5 driving trips in the world'.

- A day trip to our capitol, Belfast, is only 1 hour 15 minutes away.

- In Portstewart there are many restaurants,or try Portrush for a change.

- The nearest Tourist Information Office is in Coleraine; the Library situated below the Townhall on the Promenade has a little information, the Library also has internet access, which is free to members or a small charge if not.

Golf Situated on the beautiful North Antrim Causeway coast is the host for the 2012 Irish Open Golf Championship, Royal Portrush Golf Club. Being 5 miles from Portstewart, it occupies a triangle of giant sandhills which present magnificent views in all directions. The hills of Donegal in the west, the Isle of Islay and Southern Hebrides in the north, with the Giant's Causeway and the Skerries in the east. The course is overlooked by the ruins of 13th century Dunluce Castle and this gives its name to Royal Portrush's famous Dunluce course. Royal Portrush Golf Club is on everyone's list of top golf courses in Ireland and is often included in lists of the top golf courses in the world. As Ryder Cup star Darren Clarke recently said 'Royal Portrush is now rated to be in the top 12 golf courses in the world and should, indeed, be number one.'' Portrush is also the Home of 2010 U.S. Open Champion Graeme McDowell.

About Geoff and Hilda

I am a retired Civil Servant, and for most of my working life I was in the computer software and security business. I was born in Portstewart and lived there until I got married to Hilda in 1971,

when I moved to Belfast. Hilda trained and nursed in the RVH Belfast before and after we had 3 children. Hilda has now been a counsellor for the last 20 years. We have four grandchildren.

Why Geoff and Hilda chose County Londonderry

1 Seafield Park was Hilda's family home from 1966 after moving from Belfast. Two years later Hilda moved back to Belfast to train as a nurse in the RVH. We have owned the house from about 2001. It has been fully renovated and fitted out with high quality furnishings, kitchen appliances and units.

We try to ensure that the property in kept in 5 star condition, not only for our own use but to share with you, our guests.

What makes this house unique

We have 3 grown up children and 4 grandchildren. They have all spent many happy holidays in this house which is now fully equipped and modernised for present day living. The property is in a peaceful location yet very convenient to the beach, our promenade and all the magnificent scenery of the North Coast and Donegal. We have private parking and an enclosed back garden

Excellent

  • 5 of 5
Geoff and Hilda provide a clean, comfortable and very well equipped house (including wi-fi) for holiday letting. it is conveniently located for the town (plenty of good coffee shops) and the picturesque sea front (5-10 mins) - whilst golf course and beach is just 20 mins walk or a very short drive away. Ideal for adults and children. We returned for a second time this summer and were not disappointed - high standards have been maintained. Highly recommended.

Outstanding!

  • 5 of 5
We fully enjoyed our stay at Geoff and Hilda Home in Portstewart. The kitchen is very well equipped and all the extra details were much appreciated when going on holiday with young children. The highchair, the cot, the black out curtains ;) We highly recommend this vacation home. Town is walking distance and some great restos walking distance also. And thank Geoff for arranging so that I can pick up our things I left behind...you could tell I didnt want to leave :)Natalie and Glenn from Montreal Canada.

Owner's Response: Sometimes when we have visitors from abroad, we are never sure what they might expect. So we are very pleased to hear Natalie and Glenn that you found everything to your liking. The blackout curtains do work quite well don't they? If you are passing this part of the world again you will be most welcome. Thank you for taking the time to write this review.

Brilliant in every way!

  • 5 of 5
Quiet location within easy reach of the shops & beach. Managed to fit three motorbikes in the garage - even a hosepipe and buckets for us to clean them with! House was spotless with everything we needed from towels to washing up liquid (which we replaced as we are like that!) A comfy stay which I couldn't fault. Even the neighbours came out to have a chat when we were cleaning the bikes - how friendly is that!
Would highly recommend!

A lovely bright home that is comfortable, well presented and very clean. The living area is a good size and the open fire is an added bonus. It is well equipped for kids including a high chair, books & toys. And Wifi is included! The house is also in a great location close to the beach, shops and promenade. We hope to b back!

Owner's Response: Carla thank you for taking the time to post your review. We are pleased you found our home to your liking. I agree that our home is situated very well for easy walking access to promenade with children's play area and the beautiful sandy beach and rock pools by the seashore.
I hope Trevor enjoyed his 'Land Surfing', a great time of the year to do it when the beach is quiet. Looking forward to welcoming you back.

What a gem!

  • 5 of 5
We loved staying in Portstewart at this little house! We blindly picked this town and this house and truly lucked out. This house, although small, has everything you would need to have a successful holiday and more. There were even games for the kids! The beach truly is close by and the town has a lot to offer. We were also incredible close to the Giant's Causeway and the Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge. We felt like we were well taken care of and I would highly recommend this house to anyone.

Owner's Response: Kathy we were delighted to have you choose our home, on the magnificent North Coast of Ireland as one of the two bases for your visit to Ireland. We are very pleased you enjoyed your time with us and found our home to your liking.
As a young family of four, on a six month European Adventure you are truly an extra ordinary Canadian family. I am enjoying following you on your Blog, seeing what you are getting up to. I know you spend a lot of time doing the kids 'home schooling', so I thank you very much for taking time out to write your kind comments.

Portstewart is a quite, sedate resort, with a picturesque harbour and promenade and to the west is the sweeping two-mile stretch of Portstewart Strand. Great golf courses including Royal Portrush which was the venue for Irish Open 2012. Travel east and within 20 minutes you can visit Dunluce Castle, Bushmills Distillery, Giant's Causeway. Travel a little further see Carrig-a-rede ropebridge and Ballycastle and a little boat trip to Rathlin Island and do a spot of Bird Watching. Portstewart has wonderful coastal walks to Blue Flag beaches, swim, surf or lie in the dunes and soak up the sun. If you want to play, there is Tennis, Bowls, Putting, Sea Fishing trips from the local harbour, surfing on Portstewart Strand or for a change try Portrush and of course Championship Golf courses in Portstewart and Portrush. Go west to Derry / Londonderry (was UK City of Culture 2013, about 1hr. drive) and Co.Donegal for more magnificent scenery. Come during May for the International North West 200 Motor Cycle Race Week; July for the N.I. Milk Cup football Tournament and 'Keswick at Portstewart'; September for the N.I. International Air Show. These are just a few of the highlights. Remember each season gives a different experience.
