All the home comforts...

  • 5 of 5

A colleague and I booked for one night whilst in Belfast on business and found ourselves wishing we were staying for a few days, as the apartment really was the perfect place to stay. Very clean and comfortable, this apartment had everything we needed and was a home away from home. Alan, our very friendly and gracious host, was there to greet us on arrival and he even throws in a well stocked fridge of breakfast items, gratis. It's so refreshing when you discover the accommodation you've booked turns out to be exactly as described and promised. Book and you won't be disappointed.

Hands down the BEST!

  • 5 of 5

Quiet, end of the road and tucked in behind a golf course. This was our favorite accommodation as we toured the UK and Ireland. Alan met us when we arrived and gave us a quick tour and made sure we knew where to head for dinner. He had great recommendations for our drive up the coast to the Giants Causeway and Dunluce Castle. We slept well in the spacious bedrooms and had plenty of space to relax at the end of our days of exploring Belfast. We definitely recommend this apartment. I've already told friends if they are headed to Belfast that we know where they should stay. Thanks for everything!

Excellent Stay!!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed 2 nights in this Belfast apartment in early August. It turned out to be our family's favorite place to stay on our 16 day vacation. The apartment is on an upper floor. Alan is the only host who took the time to email us to make sure my mother-in-law could navigate the steps. Nice touch! Alan met us at the door. The apartment is very spacious. Two large bedrooms and a beautiful bathroom made our stay very enjoyable. Alan was so helpful arranging for our taxi cab tour of the murals. It was the best! I highly recommend this apartment and make sure to ask Alan for his recommendations for restaurants (it's all in his book on the coffee table, if you forget to ask) and for tours. He is very knowledgable.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We only stayed here for one night, but wished it was for longer. The apartment was very spacious for three people. The beds were comfortable and the bedrooms and bathroom were quite large. The apartment was very clean and cozy. We even had a spot to park our car right out front. Alan recommended a great taxi cab tour that explained a lot of the local history, and we really enjoyed it. We would recommend this apartment to everyone, and would love to stay again.
