Beautiful and spacious

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time at this house in Waterville. The house is beautiful and had everything you need. It is only a five minute walk to the beach snd town and there is so much to do around the area. And Waterville is a very beautiful scenic area. I would recommend staying here to anyone.. We would go back again

Great house in Waterville

  • 5 of 5

Had a lovely stay in this house in Waterville. Mary the owner was so accomodating and extremely helpful. The house is very well equipped in fact it is the best holiday home we have stayed in in that respect! The weather was pretty gloomy during our stay so it was nice to have a comfortable house to return to. Our kids made friends with some other kids staying in a holiday home close by so that really entertained them. All in all a great holiday in waterville!

Excellent Stay in Beautiful Waterville Home

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a wonderful Summer vacation in South West Kerry, using Mary's home in Waterville as our home base. Consistent with the other 16 - 5 Star reviews/ratings, I would give it a 5 as well! The owner is sweet and kind and very helpful and caring...the yard is well kept, gas grill for cooking, house is clean and pretty with the exposed wood beams, beds are very comfortable, the kitchen has the amenities one would hope for, the fireplace is a working fireplace, house is at the end of a cul-de sac, so limited traffic.

The home is close to the center of town and some excellent restaurant and pubs, the beach is close by for a nice walk or pretty viewing, grocery stores, meat market and in proximity to some good golf courses. The location was perfect for Derryname, Caherdaniel, Kells, Smeed, etc breath taking scenery visits

I highly recommend this home and the owner was very pleasant and enjoyable to work with - Slainte Mary!

lovely house in waterville

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay in Waterville. The house was huge, clean and in near two amazing golf courses. Owner was very kind and helpfull. If you have kids: be aware of internet use. The internet card Mary bought you runs out fast when your kids watch video's through the internet. We know now...

Wonderful Home in Waterville

  • 5 of 5

This home in Waterille was a fantaststic place for our group to base or golf trip to Ireland. We put 6 adults in the house and had no issues with privacy or space. The house is clean and bright and we all felt very welcome in the home. Mary was great and gave us a warm Irish welcome and made sure everything was in order for our group. Definately like to go back.

Beautiful house in beautiful Kerry

  • 5 of 5

My wife and three adult children spent a truly enjoyable week in this splendidly-furnished and equipped house in Waterville on the Kerry coast. Just a five-minute walk from the centre of Waterville village, it was just what we had hoped for and were expecting from the listing, only more so. We enjoyed good weather but were (almost!) wishing it had been colder so that we could have made use of the open fire, for which our very helpful but inobtrusive hostess, Mary, had supplied a good stock of turf and logs.

The village caters very well for visitors, with a number of good bars and restaurants (we enjoyed our meals at An Corcan, Sheilin and the Butler’s Arms), tennis courts and two small but well-stocked grocery stores. We travelled around part of the Ring of Kerry and the Skellig Ring, visiting Caherdaniel and Derrynane, Ballinskelligs (beautiful beach), Portmagee and Clochancanuig beach (good for surfers). We also fished on Lough Currane (no success but great views of the surrounding mountains) and travelled to Dingle for the day to visit friends - a bit of a trek but worth it.

We would definitely recommend this house to friends and very much hope to visit again ourselves.

Thank you, Mary, for a great week.
