    Fantastic home.. lots of space for our group. very comfortable and cosy...once we got the hang of the heating! Cinema room was a big hit after time in the hot tub! We didn’t venture far as weather was so wild!

    Lovely holiday house with great sea views. This house is a fabulous size and nicely finished. There was everything we needed although there were some complaints from the kids that the WiFi didn't reach all the bedrooms or up to the upstairs "cinema room" (so couldn't use the "Fire Stick" we took with us. I would however definitely go back!

    What can i say , i don't normally leave a review yet allow reviews to cloud my judgement !!. i have seen some negative comments about this place and having now been there i just don't understand some people ( would love to see there houses ) this property is without a drought one of the best i have been too and I've been all over britain so am well advised to pass a CREDIBLE comment . yes there are a couple of small bits and pieces need attention but whose house dosent ?? ( i made a small list for owner instead of leaving negative feedback much more contstructive i would say ) these did in no way stop us from enjoying the house , The place speaks for itself , stunning ,loads of facilities ,20 mins from ayr were there is pubs galore , dogs loved it and so did we going back at least twice a year from now on , . i noted negative feed back about owners !? cant say enough about them just down to earth people very friendly and helpful , We all thought they went the extra mile for us we had no issues at all , the caretaker guy next door is a real character what a gentleman me and the other 2 guys came out house to get the bus (at the door step!!!) to ayr for a few beers and he was getting in his car lol i looked at him he says "were you going lads " as if he didn't know !!! free lift !! and we all laughed all the way . only reason i gave a 9 for amenities is the wee pub at the harbour is shut at the moment probably a good thing lol steep walk home !!! . all i can say is GO you'll love it !! stewart

    Our 3rd visit to Island View,,this time however we were disappointed in the cleanliness of the kitchen worktops, sink, doors and floors. The Ladies had to do some cleaning before our relaxing weekend could start. Log burner in back lounge hadn't been cleaned out from previous occupant either,,,being a weekend of mild weather we didn't need to use it. Clothes also left in drawer from previous occupant and t-shirt found behind bed in same bedroom. We did contact Alan the owner who said he would sort out a gift voucher for us for local pub as way of compensation,,,sadly he never carried this out and also never bothered to reply to last message we sent him. The 4 couples won't let this put them off and will probably return again next year....as a paying customer it is nice to be acknowledged and sadly we feel our concerns re the cleanliness were not taken seriously on this occasion.

    Place was grubby and the cinema room was a big let down as a usp. Would not recommend or go back. Shame really.

    We love staying at Island View and we are in love with Dunure. The owners have made a fabulous, comfortable place to stay, perfect for dogs too, and further cosmetic improvements have been made which was lovely to see. The cleanliness let the place down this year for us we felt like we had moved in to someone elses mess, but this does not reflect on the owners efforts at all. We will stay again, as we love Dunure so much.

    We were a combined family of 8 visiting and had a lovely stay. The house is in a lovely setting and is huge. There is pleanty of room in the house even with 8 people for everyone to have space, the hot tub and sauna were a really nice addition. Some minor things to point out that didnt spoil our holiday: there was food in the freezer and cupboards, from previous holiday makers which i think should have been removed. We were told there would be water test strips for the hot tub but this was empty. we were told that some would be delivered ASAP but these did not arrive during our holiday. We did try and make contact with the owner via text but unfortunatley he did not get back to me. We would definitley stay here again

    Spent the first week of June here and had a fantastic holiday. The house is well equipped and very spacious and the view fantastic. The sauna and hot tub on the roof just topped it off. We had great weather and spent most of the time on the beach or sitting in the garden which has a huge barbecue. Next door neighbour Freddie is on hand if you have any problems and owners contact numbers are there to. Staff at the dunure in are very friendly and welcoming and a good place to eat out. Only negative is kitchen area could do with a lick of paint but other than that it is a beautiful home
