À propos de ce logement
Step directly through the garden gate on to the beach from our luxury, ground floor apartment in Fairlie Bay – a great base for exploring the beautiful coastline of Ayrshire & Arran, or a peaceful winter hideaway in the cooler months. The apartment is in a perfect spot for day trips to the likes of the Isle of Arran, Isle of Bute & the Isle of Cumbrae, as well the stunning Cowal Peninsular, Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park.
With a backdrop of the sometimes snow-tipped mountains on the Isle of Arran and far reaching views over the islands of Cumbrae and Bute, The Beach Bothy is a special self-catering haven in the most idyllic of locations. Take a bracing dip in the sea, have a beach barbeque (wrapped in one of our blankets when it's a little chilly) or simply enjoy a long lazy lunch in the secluded garden and wait for the sun to set slowly behind the islands. During the winter get away from it all and put your feet up in front of the log burning fire after a walk on the beach.
Bedrooms & Bathroom
The Beach Bothy has two bedrooms, one with a kingsize zip and link bed which can be changed to two singles where necessary, and a double bed, both with 1200 pocket sprung mattresses and crisp white bedding. We also have a camp-bed if you have additional children you want to accommodate, as well as a travel cot for babies, if necessary.
We have a beautifully fitted open plan kitchen/living/dining room, complete with Dualit toaster, brand new combination oven & microwave, gas hob, and everything we think you could need for a comfortable stay. Take a pew on our comfortable window seat around the kitchen table and watch for seals while you enjoy something to eat. Or in the evenings kick back and relax on our comfy sofa in front of the fire, with a movie or a book. For younger guests we have a Playstation 3 (with a selection of games) as well as board games such as Scrabble, Boggle, Monopoly & a deck of cards. There is also a small selection of children's toys as well as beach items such as a bucket and spade and a couple of deck chairs.
We have a modern galley bathroom, complete with a bath, and a stand-in electric shower. We supply white luxury towels and hand towels for all guests.
At the rear of the property we have a utility/boot room, complete with a sink and a washing machine as well as a Sheila-Maid pulley airer for drying off wet clothes, beach towels, and walking or welly boots.
Directly outside our front window is our gorgeous front garden, which leads directly on to the beach. Pull up a deck chair with a drink and watch the sun setting behind the Isle of Cumbrae, or sit and eat lunch during the warmer days on a beach blanket.
Accès des voyageurs
Access is recommended from the rear, through the communal doors. There is also direct access from the beach, through the garden. Absolutely ideal for people with young children or dogs as there is no road to worry about. Just step through the front door and you're right on the sand.

Happy to offer any help we can with your stay.
The Beach Bothy is the ground floor of a shared Victorian house. The lady opposite us has two very small (kid friendly) fluffy dogs that like to run around outside from time to time but...if you're not keen on dogs, it's good to note!
We supply fresh ground coffee, tea, sugar, olive oil, salt and pepper and dried herbs. We also supply toilet roll, and cleaning products. There is no shop immediately in the village (although the supermarket is a short five min drive away) so we recommend doing a shop before you arrive or alternatively ordering one for delivery shortly after. Get in touch for further info if you need it.
We provide freshly laundered towels and bed linen, tea towels and loo roll etc as well as a travel cot and a high chair free of charge. We also have beach chairs for lazing on the beach and some beach toys for our younger guests. Oh and we supply a pet bowl for your furry friends.
We would politely ask that you let us know about any breakages ASAP so we can replace items before the next guests arrive.
We are pet friendly...however...please keep pets off the furniture and out of the bedrooms - not all our guests have pets and it is important to keep things fur free wherever possible.
* There may be an additional cleaning charge if there is particularly heavy cleaning required following your stay.
Please don't use the towels we supply for use on the beach - the sand makes them very hard to clean.

I am originally from Northumberland and now work between London and Scotland. I love reading, cooking, listening to music, wine (I have a small new wine business) and music (I still work in the music biz) and I absolutely LOVE travelling. For this reason I adore Air BnB and the opportunity it's given me to stay in special places I could never have dreamt of experiencing previously. I am friendly and like nothing more than to nose out a special place to eat or visit, and to impart any knowledge I have on that front to my guests when I'm hosting.
