It was amazing week.The Villa is a great value for money, Very spacious, with everything what you might need for a perfect stay. It was 14 of us (including small children) and we didn't feel cramped at any point. I've found location of Whiting bay perfect to explore the Island as well. View from the rooms is amazing. You can actually spend one day (and night) sitting in the living room watching epic scenery. To say nothing about plenty of space to park your car and beautiful garden. Jackie (the owner) was answering all questions and we didn't have to wait long for a response. Helenslea will be for sure first holiday rental to consider if we visit Arran again.
We rented this house for a family weekend to celebrate a special birthday. We were thrilled to bits when we arrived and explored the property. The children and grandchildren had great fun deciding what bedroom they would choose and they were all so well appointed and comfortable that we were all so happy with our choices. The kitchen had every piece of equipment you would require and we found no problem with cooking meals for everyone. The lounge was large enough for eleven of us but was also so cosy with a log family. There was board games and books and we were spoiled for choice. The sea views were lovely and we loved the relaxed comfortable feel of the house. Whiting Bay itself was excellent for nice walks despite the poor weather we would have no hesitation in recommending this property to family and friends.
We stayed as a family ( 7 adults and 4 kids) for my Dads 70th birthday and we had a lovely stay and family celebration. The house was perfect. It was warm and cosy and we all enjoyed gathering together in front of the open fire. The house is very comfortable and easy to make yourself at home as it so well equipped with everything you need. The beds were comfy and the house had lots of quirky features that the kids especially loved. (Particularly the gong that had to be rung for meals!! ) The owner was really helpful and very flexible which was much appreciated. Would definitely stay in this lovely house again.
If filled to capacity this is a great value stay, kids loved the house and we found it very cosy with both central heating and open fire!
The accommodation was perfect for a large family gathering. 6 adults, 4 children over 3 generations all were well catered for. We had not only multiple meals we also hosted a party there - lots of entertaining space - all with the back drop of the stunning views. Kids loved the putting green and their own separate lounge. The owner was really helpful with local advice and very flexible with arrangements. There is a great pub / restaurant 2 minutes walk away / a stunning waterfall walk on the door step / golf course within walking distance - Will definitely be back
