    The apartment was lovely and we felt at home with the woodburner. The holiday was mired unfortunately by the vandalisation of our car. This did not appear to be taken seriously by either the local police or the owner of the property. Sadly this put a dampener on the holiday and we decided we wouldn't want to visit again. The best part of the village is the butchers, who are very helpful and supply amazing meat!

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; We are 100% focused on making our property a home from home. We have high expectations ourselves and wish to please guests equally. I attended promptly hearing from the guest, with the off duty policeman. The car was immaculate and like the police, we believed yellow marks & crosses on components & connections on engine to be factory checks. There was nothing else I or police could do. I expressed relief that the car otherwise was immaculate considering it had been left open and so I left. We have no control outwith our property and ask guests to lock cars as they would at home. Millport/Cumbrae is safe, friendly and welcoming. We are dependant on tourism, have 40 years holiday home ownership on island and are grateful for this. There is ample unrestricted parking with no bother from other residents.

    Ali and Lisa were fantastic hosts, very friendly and provided everything that we required. The apartment was stocked better than many I have stayed in and the welcome pack provided including cheese, oatcakes and butter was a welcome addition. There were plenty of logs provided for the wood burning stove which was needed on a wet and windy January weekend. I would seriously recommend staying here and I certainly would again in the future.

    A wonderful stylish cottage with everything thought if. Very kind of Ali & Lisa to offer extra logs for the wood burner. The girls loved sitting by the fire after a long run/walk on the beach.

    Lovely wee flat with everything you need and some very thoughtful additions such as a welcome pack with bread, milk, butter, biscuits & delicious local tablet. Also a box for dogs with towels & biscuits. Owners meet you personally to show you how everything works and they supply logs for the stove. Excellent value.

    This is our second time in this cottage, it was just as lovely this time round, a real home from home. We even got to light the wood burner this time round and it was so cosy and toasty warm. Thanks very much, we'll we back again :)

    The accommodation was very good, clean and warm. The weather was dull and wet for most of the week. This does not bother me especially after all the heat of this summer. I don't think we will return to the island. We got the best out of it with a concert in the cathedral on the Sunday and several visits to the Garrison cafe and museum. We left the island three times during the week, which put the price up somewhat. The island is not too far from Glasgow, which is easily accessible. The owners were friendly.
