We had a great time at Gail's house. We travelled from the U.S. with our 3 young kids and had a number of relatives of all ages staying with us at various points during the week. Everyone loved the house and its layout. The location was also ideal, and very easy to walk into the town where there are many restaurants, cafes and shops. Would definitely return and would recommend.

From the front, Gail's house looks like the archetypal sprawling old mansion, save for the fact that it's pink. But when you go inside, you find that the house is schizophrenic. The high ceilings, carpeted staircase and decorative glass windows speak of a bygone age; but the shiny modern kitchen, and massive (>70sqm) conservatory completely change the character of the house. They're bright and airy, and offer uninterrupted views of the garden, and fields beyond. Gail has provided everything that a large group could need. A great place just a stone's throw from some good pubs, the beach and ice-cream shops.

We had such an incredible stay! Everything from the loveliness of the home, to the amenities, to the location were beyond our expectations. Check-in & out couldn't have been easier. If you are coming in August, try to overlap with the city's festival and tour the lighthouse. It's only open one day a year.

This house is amazing, we all had a fantastic stay and was sad to leave. The area is beautiful, such a picturesque place. This house suits both families and groups of friends. We all absolutely loved it. Thank you

Gail's home is lovely and comfortable with plenty of space for a group/family holiday. It is within a few minutes walking distance to town with a good variety of shops, restaurants and bars. Our bed was really comfortable too. The only negative I would say is the showers - showers in both bathrooms have really low water pressure. As we were in a group of 11 and with only 2 showers, it took us a long time to get ready. Gail was ever so quick and helpful to respond to questions/requests though, and so was her housekeeper. All of us had a great time in Donaghadee. We spent most of our time, whilst at the house, in the back garden - which was absolutely lovely! Gail's cat was an added bonus for us, as we all love animals.
