Guestbook comments from the owner

Hello John-



first of all, we want to let you know we have greatly enjoyed our stay at Seal Cottage. While the weather was cooler than we were hoping, the kids have spent hours playing in the water and exploring the shoreline at low tide. It has been most relaxing.



Last night, my sister and a friend of hers joined us and they too have enjoyed the location and the house.



Our travel plans have changed a bit and Renee the kids and I will be leaving Seal cottage this afternoon for the Tralee area. My sister and her friend will stay here tonight and leave tomorrow.



Thanks again!

Renee

Wonderful peaceful location

  • 5 of 5
This is a truly wonderful holiday location. The facilities were all in top condition. All the rooms were clean. Hot water and heating was working. Open fire in the living room every night with plentiful supply of kindling and firewood.There is a lovely greenhouse area which would get warm when there was prolonged sunshine, of course not always guaranteed to see that yellow orb in the sky...

Customer service was excellent and I would definitely recommend this property to any of my friends or relatives who wished to stay in the Castletownbere area.

Owner's Response: Hi Ollie, I'm glad you enjoyed your stay at Seal Cottage. I hope you made it back to Seattle ok. It is good that you are returning again mid-October. I look forward to that. It is a different feel as the winter approaches. See you then. Regards, John

Owner's Response: Hi Ian, It was a pleasure having you stay. I look forward to having you back again at some future date with your wife and family. That is a beautiful condo you have on the beach in Mexico. Very tempting despite the long trip from Ireland!! Talk soon. Best Regards, John

Brilliant place to stay

  • 5 of 5
“Thank you for the warm welcome we received upon arrival. We have had a lovely holiday. It is truly a ‘mini paradise’ here. The accommodation is very comfortable. We loved exploring the grounds, in particular we loved the privacy and lovely walks with scenic mountain and sea views . Looking forward in coming next year during the summer with kids. They will enjoy the pool and beach down below. We will return for a longer visit next time. Many thanks.

Amazing Place

  • 5 of 5
Hi John,

We had an amazing time at your lovely house and grounds. We could feel ourselves relaxing the moment we arrived. The kids never left the pool. Your groundsman was very helpful and always available to help with any questions we had. The sea views from all rooms is so enchanting. We have shown your site to many of our friends and hope to stay with you again in the future.

Thanks,
Ollie

Beware! Dirty! Rundown and overcharge!

  • 1 of 5
We have staid at about a dozen holiday homes over the last couple of years. Some very nice ones. This was the worst. The house has a nice architecture but is run down at many corners. When we arrived we had to face a sticky kitchen floor, pots with food remains in the closets, a part of the stove half full with cold grease. We showed it to the care taker. He apologized. We made pictures and sent them to the owner. He was not available. After we left he wrote us that he will look into the issues and charged us 80 Euros (!) for cleaning. Also he charged for rubbish disposal what is not mentioned in the offering. The landscape is in much worse condition as the pictures are suggesting. Many bushes have overgrown limiting view and use. Obviously somebody stopped taking care of land and house some time ago.

We cannot recommend this house for obvious reasons.
