Only one word can describe our experience with Jenny and her Airbnb. Outstanding! The accommodations far exceeded our expectations. Our stay was very relaxing, the grounds are beautiful and the location was great and very central. Jenny was a wonderful host and yes, we got the homemade marmalade as promised and a few other tasty treats as well. If you are looking for accomodation around the Belfast/Comber area, I honestly do not think you could find anything better. Thanks Jenny. It was a terrific stay.

Wow! We had a wonderful stay at Jenny's! I hope to stay here again when I go back to NI to visit friends and family. It was just so peaceful and quiet. The loft had been beautifully and tastefully designed and decorated. The views are amazing. The grounds that the loft is set in are gorgeous. It was a real treat to stay here and relax. Jenny was a lovely host, she made yummy fresh bed and stocked up on continental breakfast supplies for us. We had everything we needed. See u you next time Jenny

Jenny and Ian's loft was amazing. The pictures don't do it any justice. If you want a peaceful and relaxing break this is the place to go. The scenery is beautiful and the loft is very comfortable and homely. Jenny also greeted my partner and I, and left us items for breakfast. We couldn't ask for more. We will definitely be returning in the near future.

Jenny was a fantastic and thoughtful host, and we had a very relaxing stay. The loft is spacious, clean, beautifully decorated and has wonderful leafy views of a pond and the lough in the distance. Seeing a Kingfisher from the sitting room window and watching the sunset from the waters edge (only a few minutes away) were real highlights. I would recommend The Loft 100%.

Jenny made a wonderful welcome, her place is an outstanding location for getting away from everything. The rooms were spotless and her homemade sodabread was unexpected and just delicious. I truly appreciated her advices of what to do and see in the area. Amazing are the sounds of the birds in the night at the nearby bird reservation.
