Few houses in such a central location on Arran create an impression like Casa Mara.  Just seconds from the shorefront in Brodick, this is a grand and elegant house which has been very recently renovated to an extremely high standard.  Exceptionally appointed and delightfully presented, Casa Mara combines a feeling of open space together with stunning decoration and furnishings to create a wonderfully warm and welcoming house.

A sweeping staircase welcomes guests into the house which offers very comfortable accommodation for up to 12 guests across two levels, 4 of the bedrooms with en suite. For those wishing to dine in, the kitchen is extremely well appointed and there is a choice of two separate dining areas. There are also many excellent restaurants and cafes within a very short walk from the house.

Visitors to Casa Mara can look forward to the prospect of a morning stroll on the beach before collecting fresh bread from the nearby island bakery for breakfast and will be spoilt for choice when it comes to activities on offer nearby.  Brodick Golf club is just a short walk away and there is very easy access to many of the low and high level walks as well as the beach and shorefront. Casa Mara is also well equipped with entertainment and has a games room complete with table tennis table.

Ideal for celebrations, family gatherings and family holidays alike, Casa Mara is new to the Cottages and Castles portfolio 2017 and is sure to become a firm favourite with guests.

    Casa Mara reviews
    This house was excellent, for celebrating a special birthday with my sisters and brothers there wife's and husbands. The decor was beautiful,plenty of space. Everything about it is excellent hope to return next year.
    Miss Harvie - September 2018
    Casa Mara was a super holiday home, it was in a very convenient position for all the facilities in Brodick. The four en-suite bedrooms were perfect for our group of four couples. Two dining tables, we used one for breakfast and one for dinner. Plenty of settees in the lounge for all of us to sit comfortable. We found most of the things we needed in the kitchen, very well equipped for crockery etc. The Island is stunning , we had beautiful walks everyday. We ate at the Brodick Bar just a short walk from Casa Mara. It was a lovely place, very friendly staff and superb food.
    Mrs Gill - September 2018
    We stayed at Casa Mara in Brodick on the Isle of Arran, there were 12 of us altogether including kids and teenagers. The house was excellent, well equipped and in an ideal location. The owners had left lots of tourist information leaflets and other useful flyers from various businesses and attractions on the island. They also very helpfully texted me before our visit with recommendations of restaurants on the island as well as information on key collection and car parking. Unfortunately the weather was awful during our stay but the kids were able to amuse themselves and because of the location of the house could take themselves off to the shops on the main road to spend their holiday money! For the adults (well some at least) the highlights included the distillery and brewery and we had good tours of both. We all enjoyed the Arran Heritage Museum which was deceptively larger than it looked on first look. Other places we enjoyed were Arran Aromatics, The Arran Cheese Shop and the bakery.
    Mr Barlett - August 2018
    Perfect house for a large family gathering. Ideally situated for walking anywhere in Brodick. Handy for shops, restaurants, the beach, all places of interest. Well appointed kitchen. Enjoyed having 2 dining tables so all children ate together in the kitchen whilst the adults ate in the dining room. Everyone enjoyed the table tennis and participated in a family tournament. Lovely garden with different areas to sit and enjoy.
    Mrs Blunt - August 2018
    The house provided good, spacious and comfortable accommodation for our large group of 12 (8 adults and 4 teenagers); and as we had great weather, we were able to take advantage of sitting out in the lovely garden. The house was well equipped with appliances and pretty much everything we needed. We needed to contact Helen, the owner, about a couple of things and she was always more than helpful. One very small point .. one or two of the bedrooms had clothes storage facilities outside the rooms and it would have been good to have had these in the rooms. Other than that everything was good and if our group was returning to Brodick, we would be quite happy to to back to Casa Mara
    Mr Campbell - July 2018
    10 of us stayed while doing Arran Coastal Path - the accommodation was spectacular and we enjoyed relaxing in the garden. Situated just behind promenade - ideal location - plenty of places for evening meals. Very well equipped with plenty of room for everyone. 10/10 - would recommend
    Mrs Mcclymont - June 2018
    We had a wonderful week in this beautiful house, the weather was an extra bonus. The house has loads of space beautifully decorated and well stocked with dishes etc. They even provide a small medical kit which you just replace if you unfortunately have to use anything. One small issue was that the hot water was scalding and you had to be very careful particularly with children.
    Mrs Taylor - June 2018
    We recently spent 3 nights @ Casa Mara & what a fabulous house it is. There were 12 of us , ages 10 - 84 & everyone raved about it. Excellent for small or large groups, conveniently situated 5 mins from Ferry. House caters for your every need. Large well appointed, tastefully decorated rooms. Ground floor bedroom with wet room was perfect for our two Aunts - they didn’t want to leave their own little palace! Would return in a minute & highly recommend x only one tiny recommendation - with the size of the house a 4/6 slice toaster would be better to avoid delays at breakfast - apart from that - house is perfect!
    Mrs Hammell - May 2018
    The host was great at providing detailed arrival and location instructions and responded quickly to any queries. The house was spotless with tasteful decor throughout. Lots of room to relax, unwind and also gather as a family. The location was superb - right in the centre of Brodick but very peaceful all the same. We had a fantastic stay and would certainly recommend Casa Mara to others.
    Mrs Cook - April 2018
    Three generations of our family were here for a long weekend. The house is large and well furnished. The house is well maintained with good quality fixtures and fittings.
    Mrs Kyle - March 2018
    Great everything we were looking for
    Mrs Mather - February 2018
    Great location and lovely house.
    Mr Pledger - October 2017
    My family and I had a wonderful week at Casa Mara. The space and layout were perfect for all our needs. We so much enjoyed sunny evenings in the beautifully landscaped garden. The house has been very tastefully furnished and decorated( great use of wonderful Timorous Beasties wallpaper for example) We had lovely food in the Little Rock Cafe, the Douglas hotel and my special birthday lunch at the Auchrannie hotel. The proximity to the Auchrannie resort was a bonus for us. We all made use of the swimming pool and spa and the children loved the Play Barn. I have no hesitation in recommending Casa Mara and the lovely, friendly Isle of Arran.
    Mrs Flockhart - July 2017
    We had the most lovely week on one of the most beautiful holiday houses I have ever seen! Casa Mara has everything you could possibly need and more. Central location, beautifully decorated with an idyllic garden. Absolutely first class
    Mrs Dougan - July 2017
    A beautiful house in a superb location. We stayed as a two family group, the kids all loved having their own bedroom and space. Including my 2 year old who made her debut cot escape to sleep in a "big bed"! Very well equipped kitchen, including utility which was great for muddy shoes and wetsuits. Comfortable lounge with great entertainment for the rainy mornings. A super enclosed garden, lovely to sit out in (remember midge spray!) would highly recommend and would love to return. Thanks.
    Mrs Gillian - July 2017
    Lovely large house in the centre of Brodick. Everything comfortable and efficient and easy. Hosts very helpful. A lovely stay.
    Mr West - June 2017
