Fantastic Location, Great Accommodation, Friendly Owner

Fantastic location right by the sea and by Dunaverty Rock. Wonderful views, peaceful location. Great approach across Dunaverty Rock golf course. Accommodation is spacious, very comfortable and well equipped. Was spotlessly clean but has a lovely homely feel. Really lovely sitting in the very pleasant lounge looking through the large windows onto the shore watching the birds and on one evening a seal on a rock. Bed one of the most comfortable we have ever slept in.

Very warm welcome from Donnie the owner who even helped carry bags in. He is really knowledgeable on the area and very helpful.

Village near by has a wonderful tearoom which also does breakfasts.

The Sea Captain's Quarters are a really lovely place to return to after a day exploring the area. Felt at home straight away. Would certainly recommend highly.

High point of the holiday

Dunaverty Rock Sea Captains Quarters was far and away the highlight of a five day driving holiday around the Western Highlands.

The location, the warm welcome, and the comfortable accommodation made our stay unforgettable for all the right reasons.

The view across to Ireland was spectacular in the daytime and fantastically exciting at night with the moonlit breakers crashing on the beach under stars unaffected by light pollution.

Donny, the owner, couldn't have been more welcoming or helpful, whether advising on parking ("not there, the tide might take it") or pointing out the remains of the castle and the burial site of the Chiefs slaughtered in the massacre ("a greater treachery than Glen Coe").

The apartment was light, airy and spotless with thoughtful touches from corkscrew to cafetière with coffee beans.

I'm looking forward to visiting again with the family.

We recommend it highly

The Sea Captains House is unique. Being on the second floor of an old lifeboat house it has the most marvellous views over the bay, the rooms are large and beautifully decorated but not cluttered.

Donald is a very welcoming, friendly and helpful host. Tea , coffee, herbs, and fresh flowers were there to welcome us.

Although on the tip of Kintyre it was easy to explore the area, walking, cycling or to get ferries to Gigha and the other islands. Kintyre has marvellous beaches, wildlife and lots of golf courses.

If you like the idea of getting away from it all, this is the place to go. We recommend it highly.

Memorable self-catering property in a great location

4 of us stayed one night in the Sea Captain's House at Dunaverty Rock, while walking the Kintyre Way, which passes very close to the property.

The window seat in the living room provides a great view across Dunaverty Bay, with lots of wildlife-watching opportunities, while out the back of the property is a lovely little cove surrounded by cliffs and more wildlife. A memorable spot.

Donnie the owner is particularly friendly and helpful.
