A LITTLE SLICE OF HEAVEN........

  • 5 of 5
Large, comfortable, family friendly property. Very clean and well equipped. Beautiful location, so close to the beach with plenty of places in the surrounding area to visit. Loved walking on the beach each day followed by a cosy open fire each evening! Would love to return during the summer time. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a relaxing tranquil getaway. A real home from home.

GREAT WELL KEPT HOUSE IN A GREAT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
The house is a large modern, clean, comfortable bungalow and can sleep up to 10. It has a big kitchen / dining area and living room with an open fire place and TV (satellite) - basically all the mod cons you could ask for. But what really sets this house apart is the location. From the kitchen you walk 100 meters down the lane to Ballinskellig beach. The lane swings right as you arrive at the beach and the view opens up; the near perfect arc of the beach, McCarthy’s castle at the far end, the town of Waterville away to the left, (Charlie Chaplin’s Irish retreat! – I didn’t know that), and the mountains of Reenearagh and Rineen across the bay. On my first day we had that clear crisp blue Atlantic air which seems to emphasise the colours and you can literally see for miles and miles. Spectacular. The beach is safe for swimming (the house has a heated outdoor shower so you can rinse and warm up the kids or yourself when they’re back from their Atlantic dip – clever idea) the beach offers acres of space for kids to play, there’s a coffee shop and a number of places to rent kayaks etc. In evenings you can walk down the lane, along the beach and then up to the hotel for a “pint”. We tried this on the Saturday, there was a band and all the locals were out; the craic was mighty.

HAPPY HOLIDAYS 2013

  • 5 of 5
Really enjoyed our stay with extended family in this superb holiday cottage. The cottage had everything we needed we even made use of the baking trays, the kids where delighted baking fairy cakes. This house is very well equipped for family's and all the kids loved the novelty of the hot out door shower. We were also delighted to be able to dine inside the house and in the back garden.

We all enjoyed our daily trips to the beach which is only a two minute walk away. It is also in walking distance to the local pub which has a great atmosphere and lovely food. We all enjoyed our visits to Valencia island and Waterville. We also took a trip to derrynane and the kids love the fairy trail through the woods. Another day was spent on finians beach which isn't a far drive, has spectacular waves and great views of the skelligs.

Owner was very friendly when booking this holiday and we have all decided to book again for next year.

OVER PRICED FOR THE HOUSE BUT NOT LOCATION

  • 3 of 5
This house is over priced for the standard of upkeep. It is tired and unloved outside. It sits beside 2 unfinished properties on a group of 5.
The back garden is lovely but poorly maintained, rusty BBQ, dirty unswept backyard. All windows are stained and not clean. Fabalous features are outdoor hot shower and gated area over little river.
Inside was unclean on arrival with no toilet paper, and food in fridge that was not fresh. Toilets floors and fridge were dirty. Fingerprints on inside glass doors and patio doors. Very upsetting and resolved by owner the next day. Crockery was chipped, towels old and tatty. Cobwebs very evident in every room as walls white. Have stayed in this price bracket for years that included crisp bed linen, welcome basket, and high standard of cleanliness and well maintained property.
Very disappointed for this much needed break

Owner's Response: We were extremely disappointed to read this review of our rental house in Kerry. This is the first negative review we have received in 4 years of renting this property. As the reviewer states once we became aware of concerns we reacted to them immediately. The other concerns relating to back garden, cobwebs and chipped cups were not brought to our attention until this review was posted, they have all been rectified once we became aware of them. As you will see from other reviews of the property around the same time, this was an isolated incident which has been rectified.

FAMILY FRIENDLY COTTAGE NEAR LOVELY BEACH

  • 4 of 5
This is a well maintained, family friendly cottage near the wonderful beach at Ballinskelligs. The beach is no more than a few minutes walk and is lovely for walking on. The views are spectacular. The cottage is quiet, warm and has all the basic essentials needed. It has a very well maintained garden and a nice picnic table in the back. Beach and garden chairs are provided. The kitchen, utility room and bathrooms are all well equiped. The large table in the kitchen is great for entertaining up to 8 people.

It is one of 5 cottages on the development. Two of the cottages are still under construction and the other 2 are also used as rental properties. This property is more geared towards youger families than the other two finished cottages (decor and amenities).

The surrounding countryside is very tranquil. There are a few nice pubs within walking distance, along with some stunning golf courses, scenic drives and art gallery near by.

The whole process of booking the cottage (communications, payment and instructions went very smoothly). The owner was very pleasant to deal with.

I would definitely recommmend this property to a friend and return myself - but there is just one or two additional "touches" that are required. The window coverings (curtains and net) are all sheer and need to be improved in all of the bedrooms. Two bedrooms have no window covering on the velux windows so one is easily woken at the first break of dawn.

Other than that - everything else was just perfect.
