My son and I are on a long-term travel adventure, and this is our absolute favorite home of all those we have rented on our journey. To say that it is beautiful does not do it justice; the atmosphere here, both the home and the property, is healing, peaceful, and inspiring. Even those words do not do justice to this home. Everywhere you look, your eyes meet with something beautiful. The sound of the river is magical to hear every time you step outside, and we loved hearing the songs of the birds. We enjoyed the privacy and quiet this home offers, while still being very close to Arklow where we could acquire anything we needed. We stayed for a week in January, the middle of winter when the trees are bare and many plants are dormant, and it was breathtakingly beautiful here. I can only imagine how glorious it is during the spring and summer when the extensive gardens are in bloom, and in the autumn when the leaves fall. Every season has its beauty if we are open to seeing it. The new treehouse is an incredible addition; a work of art in itself and built with love and care, like everything else here. The treehouse also has electricity and a heater so it can be enjoyed at night, and its own deck overlooking the river and property.
For those wanting a review on the practical side of things, the beds are extremely comfortable and we both slept very well during our stay. The home is equipped with absolutely everything you need. It is spotlessly clean. The bedrooms have both blinds and curtains so you can choose whether you want the morning sun to wake you or if you want to keep the room darker for sleeping in.
Jeanne, thank you so much for opening your home to others. We will be forever grateful that we were able to experience this amazing place. We loved everything about it, and we definitely want to return for another, much longer, stay.
