Our historic little town of Prestwick (population 12,000) is just north of our larger neighbour, Ayr. It is a residential and holiday town, with an almost village-like atmosphere - yet it has a full range of shops, restaurants and amenities.
The Main Street has an excellent choice of restaurants, bars and bistros.
Our local beach is sandy and has a long promenade, ideal for evening strolls.
The house has all the usual amentities such as central heating, modern kitchen, new bathroom, washer/dryer, 42" and 32" widescreen LCD digital TV with satellite reception, two sitting rooms and a conservatory.
One of the sitting rooms has a computer with ADSL internet access and there is wi-fi throughout.
The main bedroom, two sitting rooms, conservatory, kitchen and bathroom are all on the ground level.
There is a single bedroom upstairs.
There are two steps up to the front door.
I provide a house manual.
Car exchanges preferred.
I can usually arrange for friends to pick you up at the airport, drive you to my home and settle you in. They are also happy to help out.
