About June Morton

My parents moved to this property in 1982 and spent many happy years here. My husband and I purchased it from the family estate in 2005. We planned to retire here but have since bought a larger property in South Beach and have spent the last nine years renting the property for long term lets.

We have now decided to use the property for short term holiday lettings.

June Morton purchased this house in 2005

Why June Morton chose Ayrshire & Arran

As a child our family rented a house in Troon for the summer holidays.

In 1982 my parents moved to Troon from the Irvine Valley.

The minute I saw this property when my parents bought it I fell in love with it. It has stunning views and is extremely bright and spacious.It is a fabulous house for those who love the sea and bright sunny aspects! It is a children's paradise. A secluded, sheltered private garden with access to the promenade, cycle path and the beach. They can play safely without the fear of traffic. Extremely relaxing for the parents!

What makes this house unique

Perfect location for all golf courses, restaurants, the town and the beach. Every amenity is within walking distance.

Would highly recommend giving this property a try!

Notes:
This is a beautiful ornate Victorian property in excellent decorative order and offers wonderful accommodation for family and friends. It is also any golfer's paradise located adjacent to the famous Royal Troon golf course and within walking distance of the three Troon Municipal courses. I am proud to say I hosted senior executives from NBC/Golf Channel during the 145th Open Golf Championship at Royal Troon, 2016. They were delighted with their accommodation and with its proximity to the course!

Just what we needed

  • 5 of 5

Our stay here was better than great - it was absolutely spectacular. Westview was a great venue, & June was a great hostess - upon our arrival we found milk, eggs, morning rolls (my favorite) and chocolates awaiting. June was available quickly for any questions or needs we had during our stay, and I loved chatting with her the couple of times we ran into each other.

I really, really highly recommend Westview to anyone looking to stay in Troon or the surrounding area . We were a family of 10 adults, and 2 small children, and it fitted our needs perfectly. We felt like we were in our own very comfortable home by the sea. Troon was the perfect place for us to stay, and Westview was the perfect house.

Many, many thanks to June for all her kindness to our family, her care and consideration to us on our stay, and her many thoughtful "extras" to make our stay more comfortable.

Cheers!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for such a lovely review. You really were a fantastic family to host and I was more than delighted when you wanted to extend your family guests into the ground floor living space. As I indicated you were the very first family since 1975 to occupy Westview in its entirety and I was quite delighted to see how much fun you had. All three generations being hosted in one property! As you are aware it is our intention in the next few months to revert the property back into one house and we will continue to let it as two separately or as one for the next three years when we finally plan to move there ourselves! I will look forward to your next visit hopefully before that! Delighted you all got back home safely and do keep in touch. It will be lovely to hear how the grandchildren are doing!

Westview: A Dream Vacation

  • 5 of 5

I thoroughly enjoyed each of the 33 days I was in residence at Westview. The property is beautiful, well appointed, perfect location on the beach with a fabulous view. The owner, June Morton, was very attentive and concerned herself regarding my comfort and needs on a daily basis. June made me feel like I was home. I could not have been more fortunate. I would enthusiastically recommend this property to others.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words Jarvis. It was a pleasure having you to stay (as it is with all my American visitors). I very much appreciate the fact that you chose Westview for your extended vacation and am delighted you enjoyed your time here. (Even if it is pot luck with the weather these days!!) My very best to you and "haste ye back!"

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay. Had a lovely time on family break in this beautiful house. Close to amenities and public transport. Will be booking up again next year.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your custom and I am delighted all went well with your family visit. I do have a great many visitors arriving for various family occasions and get togethers and I am sure Westview takes the pressure off the family you have come to visit in Troon and of course the surrounding area. You can all relax and enjoy your own space! Will look forward to meeting and greeting you properly next year if you do choose to return, (unless of course I have been able to visit my son again in San Francisco!) Sorry about that but I know Bernadette was there to welcome you.

What a fabulous holiday home

  • 5 of 5

The location was perfect. We didn't have a car but didn't need one as local shops were in walking distance and we could easily get the train to other towns.

The house itself was beautiful and the stunning sea views were amazing. Troon beach is lovely and we loved looking over Arran.

June made our arrival really special by getting in the essentials and some treats and she was very accommodating throughout.

I loved the use of bikes and enjoyed a cycle from Troon to Prestwick enjoying the beautiful views.

We were a family of 10 and there was plenty of room. I would highly recommend!

Thanks June x

Owner's Response: Gosh you have been energetic, cycling to Prestwick. I'm glad the bikes made it and that you got some good weather to be out and about! I very much appreciate you choosing Westview to stay and if it interests you I now am able to let the ground floor which has three bedrooms, kitchen, large living room, two bathrooms and a private garden. Just in case you wish to return! Best Wishes, June

Amazing home and wonderful hosts!

  • 5 of 5

It's hard to know where to begin...

We stayed at this home in Troon over the Christmas and New Year's holidays. We were a group of 6 adults (from the USA and South Africa) and 3 little ones (2 years, 15 months, and 7 months). The house was PERFECT! We all had our own space and the shared spaces were large and comfortable for when we gathered for meals and conversation.

Our host, June, was wonderful and delightful. They met us soon after we arrived and provided all the details we needed to get us comfortable. In addition, there were lovely welcome treats for all and a special treat for the little ones. June was in close communication throughout our stay, and we always felt welcome to contact her.

The kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed to complete our purchased Christmas dinner. The grocery was a convenient drive or walk and we all enjoyed being close to the waterfront and the shopping areas.

I can't think of anything we would ask to be changed....It was a wonderful home and a wonderful gathering of family.

Thank you, June, for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home.
