Guestbook comments from the owner

All we can say is WOW! What an outstanding property. The view is fantastic and the peace & quiet unbelievable. The views from the patio are amazing, and we spent hours outside watching the sea and mountains.

Very clean house with outstanding panoramic views

  • 5 of 5
The house was very clean and equipped with everything you need for a pleasant holiday. The location of the house is indescribably beautiful, the scenery and the tranquility invites you to relax. The house is very well suited for a family holiday. In addition, the house is wheelchair accessible. My family and I are very excited from that house and can imagine to spend our holidays there again.

Agréable séjour en bord de mer

  • 5 of 5
Voilà un gîte que l'on quitte à regret: très confortable, avec un équipement complet, dans un cadre magnifique, d'un calme parfait, on y revient tous les jours avec plaisir après avoir visité la région et les balades ne manquent pas: du Fasnet à Dingle, la région est superbe! Katherine, la personne qui nous reçoit, est très aimable, souriante et ponctuelle! Le village de Kenmare, à 16 kms, est étonnamment vivant pour sa taille, et la région est magnifique. Vraiment, un gîte à recommander, dans lequel nous retournerons éventuellement avec plaisir. seul (petit) point négatif: pas de wi-fi et pas de programmes français à la télévision malgré le satellite, mais ce sont vraiment de petits désagréments par rapport aux agréables moments passés, blottis dans le salon, avec la mer pour horizon.

Holiday 11.04 - 20.04.2014

  • 5 of 5
We rented this nice house for ten days during the easter holidays. It was a good location to explore the beautiful surroundings, like the Ring of Beara, Tralee, Dingle or the Glenachequin park. The view over the Kenmare River is really fantastic and we made lots of photos. The customer service was very good and the house was clean and tidy. We can recommend booking this house and we wish to come back again.

Traumhafte Aussichten

  • 4 of 5
Der Dauerregen (9 von 10 Tagen) hat uns einen Strich durch unsere Wanderpläne gemacht. Das Haus war uns dann eine Oase: wunderschöner Blick über die Bucht, ein gutes Buch, lecker Tee und ein warmes Feuer im offenen Kamin haben uns entschädigt und die Zeit genießen lassen.
Das Haus ist sehr sauber geführt, mit allem ausgestattet, was es für einen komfortablem Urlaub braucht und wir hatten einen netten Kontakt zur Betreuerin und zum Vermieter. Vielen Dank für die schöne Zeit in Ihrem Ferienhaus.
Einziger Nachteil (und deswegen einen Stern weniger): bis zum nächsten Ort in dem man einkaufen kann (Kenmare) benötigen ungeübte Linksfahrer ca. 25min.

The Perfect cottage

  • 5 of 5
This beautiful new cottage overlooking the Kenmare River is perfect in everyway, and all set up for entertaining and viewing the beautiful water. It has new oil heat and a stove that keep it warm and charming. Great parking and each bedroom has its own sink. Large windows for viewing the shooting stars at night. There are lots of activities in the area. The customer service was excellent and the cottage was in apple pie order and very welcoming. I can highly recommend booking this cottage for a wonderful Irish experience in this area of the Beara Peninsula. It is so beautiful with golf courses and lots of ruins.
