“5-STAR HOME FROM HOME”
Reviewed 30 December 2014 for a stay in December 2014

Had a 5-star family reunion over Christmas week thanks to warm and attentive welcome and other surprises provided by owner Margaret. Really did feel snug and at home throughout the week in this renovated schoolhouse in Hollybush village, with touches of modern design style to the interior, especially in the spacious bedrooms. The pictures don't do it justice. When the weather is fair, the scenery is beautiful, especially down at the river Doon and further up the valley, and with historic Ayr and sea front not far away, even reachable with regular bus service almost from the door. Expect to be back !

“A great time had by all!!”
Reviewed 23 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Celebrated a friend's special birthday with 12 adults staying at the White House! A great 'Party House', from the well stocked fridge, to a fabulous pavlova and a warm welcome from Margaret. We all had a wonderful time and would definitely return. Fabulous!!

“Magic”
Reviewed 30 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Where to start? This is an amazing house in which the owner has thought of absolutely everything. Birthday presents, wine, beer, breakfast pack...more than we could have anticipated. The rooms are gorgeous and spacious and the house was so large that even when full there was plenty of room for everyone. Beds really comfy and the bath in the main suite was fabulous. Loved it and hope to return. Thanks a lot, Margaret and Ryan.

“Amazing House, Fantastic time”
Reviewed 2 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

I booked the White House for my family/friends who were coming a long distance to my wedding and they had a great time.

Even just from the time of booking the service was amazing. Margaret was fantastic at keeping in contact (even when she was abroad on holiday!!!) and arranged to do key hand over to fit in with my timing (very important as i was super stressed just before the 'big day'). SHe showed us round the house and I couldnt believe it... It is one of the nicest interiors I have ever seen. It is finished to such a high quality and the rooms are huge. I expected the photos to have made it look a bit better than it was (like most hotels do) but this was the COMPLETE OPPOSITE, the photos dont do the place justice.

Decor aside the whole experience was wonderful. Margaret is lovely, she provided us with a home -made pavlova and then left us to enjoy our weekend.

I could not recommend this place more. She has thought of everything and I am so happy that we booked. The house was wonderful the setting lovely and I would love to go back again!!!

Thank you so much!!!

(only thing which could be improved is the trip advisor map!! its wrong.)
