Stone Cottage was a lovely comfortable home for our group of six, three couples.. It has a very well equipped kitchen with continuous hot water supply and in the three bathrooms. The cottage is in a beautiful rural setting with great views and within easy reach of Waterville and several other wonderful beauty spots and beaches. Our host, Bernie was very warm and welcoming and very quick to respond to our needs. I would highly recommend this home.
Thank you, Bernie and Derry, for a warm welcome to your cosy cottage! We had a great stay, in spite of the weather early in the week, and the area is absolutely stunning. The cottage had everything we needed, loads of space and the views from the garden, especially the night sky, were fantastic...a great feeling of space and a very tranquil setting. The recently added WiFi worked really well. You were excellent hosts and we both look forward to seeing you again in the future.

The location is fantastic! The cottage is very well appointed, with stunning views.
There are a couple of points that could be addressed:
1) there should be a 'book' (lever arch file) with all the required information, such as wifi code, recyclicing systems, plus, all the information that tourists need, town map, eating places. To have the all in one folder would be helpful,
2) a hair dryer would be useful and, perhaps an ironing board.
Overall, we had a great stay and the above points are very minor.
On the last morning, whilst having breakfast, a Sparrowhawk landed on the window ledge - perfect.
We'd definitely stay again.
We enjoyed the comfort that the cottage allowed.. It was a great setup. The only glitch we had during our stay was having the power cut out 3 times the first evening of our stay. Lots of candles in the cottage so we were fine. Beautiful scenery in the area. Would suggest lighter weight blankets as we found the duvets too warm
We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday.. The house was absolutely fabulous with amazing scenery all around . The house was very clean and tidy with great space and easy to maintain.The setting of the the house was quiet and peaceful but still within very easy access to beach and town. It was very safe and secure with great facilities nearby and lots to see and do.
Very spacious cottage, well equiped.. Warm welcome from owners.
Just Wifi missing (no internet connection) - it can be useful to find places of interest.
The owners of the cottage were extremely welcoming and helpful.. The cottage is beautiful, so very clean and comfortable. The views are wonderful and with Waterville just over the hill there is all you need for a peaceful, relaxing, get away from it all holiday.
We had a nice stay at a very lovely home with stunning views. The owners are very friendly and helpful. I can totally recommend a stay at Stone Cottage.
A lovely house. I really appreaciated my stay at the stone cottage. Owners are very friendly and helpful.
This house was beautiful and the view was wonderful. It was close to Waterville and a good location to see the Ring of Kerry and all the other scenic areas. The owners met us upon arrival and were very friendly and helpful. I would definitely rent this house again and recommend it to our friends. I would give it an excellent rating.
Great cottage with fabulous views. Owners very friendly and helpful with good ideas for sightseeing.
From the moment we arrived (at short notice having transfered from another cottage) we were met and made very welcome by Bernie and her husband. The cottage is furnished to a high standard and has everything one needs for a relaxing vacation. The seting and views from the cottage on the outskirts of Waterville are first class. Bernie who lives close by is ready to help with advice on places to visit etc. My wife and I would return if we were ever in the area again. This cottage is by far the best we have stayed in with marvelous hosts.
The owner went out of her way to make us welcome. The cottage location was brilliant - not too rural but very peaceful and only a short distance from Waterville. The owner lived close by and was on hand if required. The owners over the week made us very welcome. The property was excellent - it could not be faulted. I would recommend this property to both family, friends and anyone who was looking for first class holiday cottage.
A beautiful cottage in stunning surroundings, especially if you catch the weather. A lovely and relaxing place to get away to.
The rooms in this house are so cosy. We felt like at home!
We loved the location and the cottage, it was very peaceful and relaxing. Just what we were looking for and the scenery around Waterville is just stunning.
