Very nice modern apartment with two ensuite bedrooms. Stunning views from the living room.
Location, very quiet but handy for all the local sights (Giants Causeway, Bushmills Distillery, Dunluce Castle etc.) Car pretty essential.
We had a wonderful stay.
My partner, our child and myself spent a wonderful week at Ballintrae House Apt 5 in December. The apartment is so spacious and modern, well equipped and the views out on to the Atlantic and across to Runkerry are stunning, whatever the weather. And Causeway Coast Rentals are so friendly and helpful, whatever time or date. Our 3rd stay at Ballintrae House Apt and already looking forward to the next one.
we have stayed here over a few times and have found it to be in excellent condition in every way every time we travel with my chaps mother who this year will be 91 years young and even she fell in love with the apartment and the location, we would recommend this apartment to everyone and a few of our work mates have stayed here also in the past have loved it ,it is a brilliant apartment in a brilliant location ,you are so close to portrush, coleraine, and portstwewart, with it having stunning views and extremely comfortable furnishings inside everything that you would need I cant say anything bad about this apartment and we have been to it on several occasions over a number of years and will be getting back soon

This is a beautiful holiday home for anyone looking for a high standard accommodation on the North Coast. Well kept and comfortable living areas and fully equipped kitchen. Views are stunning and location is perfect for visiting Portballintrae, Bushmills, Portrush and Portstewart. We will definitely be back!
On the surface this is a lovely apartment but unfortunately under the surface it needs a good deep clean and some attention.
Firstly the good points - a very spacious apartment with stunning views. It's I a great location with only a short walk to the beach. It also very quiet, we were there mid July and for most of the week we were the only ones in the block. The car park is also a bonus as it's convenient to be able to park right outside.
Now for the not so good bits. When we arrived we had to do a bit of cleaning so I drove to bushmills to get some antibacterial wipes. The previous people had spilt some gooey stuff in the cutlery drawer, it looked like gravy, disgusting. The same stuff was on the windowsill and on the bottom of the basin.
During our stay we wanted to wash some clothes but when we opened the powder dispenser drawer it was black with dirt! My husband had the unpleasant job of cleaning it out. The jacuzzi bath is a nice idea however the jets were so filthy we gave it a miss, we didn't feel like starting to clean that as well.
On the balcony was a flower pot half full of cigarette butts, extremely off putting and I was especially concerned that my small son would touch them. I can't believe that they hadn't been cleaned out!
There were lamps in the bedrooms but two of them didn't work. There were no curtains in one of the bedrooms, just blinds, so it got bright very early. In the other bedroom there were curtains as well as blinds but the curtains were dusty and a lot of the hooks were broken and so the curtains were hanging off.
All in all I was disappointed at the low standard and it is for that reason that I would not return. I feel that although the basic on the surface cleaning was good, time would need to be allocated on a regular basis to provide deep cleaning, for example, the grime in the washing machine would have built up over a long period of time, it's very off putting and made us feel like we were wondering what else was dirty. I would say however that this has huge potential because of its good points, it just needs some time and attention. I'm just disappointed that I paid so much for a week's stay in a sub standard holiday apartment.
