The house itself is fine and the bedrooms are spacious, however there is someone else living on the property which is not mentioned anywhere and should be.. The man was no bother at all but people should you know when booking that they are essentially sharing the property. Also we had to get rid of our rubbish by ourselves and also pay for it which is equally not mentioned anywhere else and should be as it was included into the rentals I had before. The house itself could do with a few repairs, small things like skirting boards kept on falling down. We has the odd bat in the shower. But also it had a lovely fireplace and the kids loved the sand to play with. They also loved the DVDs and as it is really quiet we all always got a good nights sleep. The beach is about a mile from the house and can be walked easily and its a very nice beach.
It did what it said in the tin! Service of Hogan Holidays and accuracy of their listing was excellent and the owner was amazingly helpful.
We loved our stay here and Catherine was very helpful and kind.. The cottage is very big and clean and there was plenty of room for all of us. It is very close to the beach and a short drive to Waterville and Caharsiveen. I would highly recommend this cottage to anyone and we hope to stay again sometime. Thanks so much!!
