100/10 best stay and friendliest hosts Fantastic cabin, we stayed in the reef and the point of detail was brilliant. Informative books on the sea and shells to go with the theme to everything voice command with the google nest. Comfortable bed. Everything you need for couple of days stay. We ordered the breakfast pack, delicious. Met Adam on our first day, had our hot tub set up for us and met Daniel on our second day, very nice, approachable guys, and very friendly. 100/10. Totally recommend

Unique cabins with lots of attention to details and great service Despite the howling wind and pouring rain for most of our 24 hours on Millport, we loved Jack’s Alt Stays cabins, especially The Hive. The little complex tucked behind the town was beautifully conceived and the cabins perfectly finished and furnished with lots of extra touches. The service was really great throughout our communications and visit - and thank you too for quickly sending me something I had left in the cabin. We had sun in our final morning and enjoyed the hot tub - hope our next visit is sunnier!

Brilliant break away We came here again for our anniversary this year and had the best time. The lads are so welcoming and accommodating. We will absolutely be back. You should definitely book this wee gem of a place, you won’t be disappointed. They have everything you’d need for a wee relaxing hot tub break.

Fantastic place Where do we start. Honestly we absolutely loved this place. The 2 guys who own this superb place are the nicest folk. From start to finish we’ve loved every part of this. Updated us on everything and kept in the know with us. Emailed us to say thank you for the stay. On our emails we were told not to bring a thing and not a thing we did other than couple snacks. We were supplied with coffee - milk - fresh orange - biscuits - shower gel - shampoo everything that’s needed for a break we had included in our stay. Would we go back. Yes 100% booking again for next year. Even bring your dog and my wee guy absolutely loved it. From the minute you arrive you know you’re going to have a smashing time. For these 2 guys to do such a thing for this island can only be a good thing. Better than most hotels we have stayed in abroad. I thank you both for a fantastic stay honestly it was superb.

The Boys have smashed this out the park The 2 young’s guys that set this up have done such an amazing job. They have pretty much thought of anything you will need while your away. All the little touches in the cabins such as the little jar of doggy biscuits, and the little quirky things in the cabins that match the themes. Cabins were immaculate and well kept. Location was perfect and the boys were on hand for anything you might need. (Not that we needed anything) I tried my best to find something the boys might have missed but couldn’t find a thing. Would highly recommend! We will definitely be back especially as we got engaged here this week. This place now has a special place in our hearts. I can see us returning every June.

FAQs

We sure do! Head over to our Gift Vouchers page for everything you need to know and to buy.

We have a 2-night minimum stay.

Saying that, if the odd night becomes available between bookings, we open it up as a single-night stay, and you’ll see it on each cabin’s booking calendar.

Our check-in time is from 4pm on your arrival date and check-out is by 11am on your departure date, so enjoy that lie in!

Yes, plenty parking! The Birdbox, The Jungle and The Reef, and have space to park at their terrace entrance. The Hive and The Woods have space to park approx. 25-meters from their terrace entrance.

We also have 4 spaces in our communal car park at the site entrance.

We’re working to have Electric Vehicle chargers installed by early February 2024.

Absolutely! We love dogs 🐶

We have a labrador (Rudi, 10) and a miniature dachshund (Honey, 2) ourselves.

The HiveThe WoodsThe Reef, and The Birdbox are pet-friendly (+£25) (2 max). The Jungle is Pet-free.

All five cabins have a traditional Swedish wood-fired hot tub on their terrace. We say ‘wood-fired’… We actually use briquettes sustainably produced in Girvan from Forest Standard-accredited forests in the UK and rejected timber from sawmills. They are Clean Air Act compliant, Ultra Low emissions and 100% sustainable.

When you arrive at your cabin, your hot tub will be squeaky clean, filled with water, and you’ll have all of the tools, eco-firelighter, kindling, and briquettes you need to get that fire going.

You’ll have an easy-to-follow hot tub safe use guide, which you must read before you get started, and we’ll be on hand or on the phone if you need a hand.

Please note it takes around 2.5 – 3 hours to heat up your hot tub to a welcoming +39°C!

Some people enjoy the experience of building the fire, but if you’d rather leave the hard work to us, you’re in luck – We offer a paid ‘Hot Tub Butler’ service as an optional add-on, where we’ll get the tub cosy and ready to jump right in on your first night!* (If you think we’re dressing like Jeeves, think again.)

*Details at checkout. For your first night only, but give us a shout the next day and we’re happy to get that fire going again!

You’ll find us in Millport, on the Isle of Cumbrae.

Our site is located on College Street; a short stroll from Millport town and seafront.

The island is only an 8-minute ferry journey over from Largs on the North Ayrshire coast. Here’s how to get there.

Creating an environmentally sustainable business has been our goal since day 1. It’s in our Founding Values.

The Cabins have been built locally from sustainable materials, and are powered by 100% renewable energy, primarily self-generated by our own solar panels.

We also have a tree planted for every booking made, through our partnership with Ecologi.

Here’s our Climate Action Plan.

Our cabins are perfect for couples and small family groups, looking for a unique and relaxing island escape.

Unfortunately, we don’t accept large group bookings such as stag dos, or hen dos.

We’ve worked closely with the architects, builders and accessibility campaigners to ensure our site and cabins meet the accessibility standards of Building Regulations.

This includes plenty space to maneuver around inside each cabin, a designated disabled parking space, and a solid, low-gradient paving surface from the pavement and car park to the first cabin, which also has a flat entry threshold and other accessibility features.

Please see our ‘Jack’s Alt-Stays Accessibility Guide’ for all information on accessing our site and cabins.
