There are no facilities available for young children such as highchairs and cots. There is also a small stream running at the bottom of the garden, therefore we feel that the property is suitable only for children aged 7 and over and we suggest that young children should be supervised at all times when out in the garden.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

One major flaw in this property is the name - “Pleasant View”… it should have been called “Stunning View” or “Mesmerizing View”!! We were all totally blown away by the flaming sunsets over the sea every night - even the kids! The property itself was extremely bright and spotlessly clean. The kitchen was well stocked with equipment and had everything we needed to prepare food - even to bake a birthday cake! After our late night swims at Browns Bay or Portmuck, the shower pressure was strong and gloriously hot! Having two teenagers with us meant that sea views didn’t hold their attention the entire time so the wifi signal in the house kept us all happy! It was an excellent location for exploring the Glens of Antrim and even heading into Belfast too. This place really was a hideaway for us all and the owners made sure our stay was just perfect, while giving us space to make their house our home for ten days. Thankyou Roy and Sue. We would love to return again some day!

The cottage was clean and tidy and it was nice to have a sea view despite the beach being a ten to fifteen minutes walk away. This is an ideal cottage if you want peace and quiet. The nearest shop or pub/ eating place is a short drive away -not within walking distance. The weather was fine mainly but cold. The best place we visited was the Glenariff Forest Park about an hour's drive away- excellent. The only negatives to our stay was that there was no free wi fi and the road to cottage was very poor but neither of these issues spoilt our holiday.

About the neighbourhood
Larne golf club with beautiful views from the course is about a 5 min drive away. It has a bar and restaurant which is open to non members on Friday to Sunday and serves good wholesome food. The nearest supermarket is the local Spar (open 7 days a week) which also has a post office and off licence and is 15 mins drive away. Close to the Spar is the renowned Rhinka store/ coffee shop famous for its ice cream and is def worth a visit. The Victorian town of Whitehead is nearby and has coffee shops, a supermarket, butchers, bakery, chemist and library. Browns bay with its award winning beach is in walking distance of the property(about 10-15 mins) and has beautiful views looking towards the Antrim Coast which is a short distance away.
Getting around
The nearest train station is at Bally carry ( near to the Spar)but parking is difficult but the station at Whitehead has a large free car park for commuters. The train line provides access to Belfast and beyond. Buses are infrequent once or twice a day so a car is definitely recommended.
