Romantisch gelegenes Häuschen

5 of 5
Ein sehr schönes Ferienhäuschen mit Meerblick. Wir haben 2 Wochen in dem Häuschen gewohnt und haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Vor allem der sehr freundliche Empfang durch Denise und auch die stets gute Unterstützung von Frau Hülstrunk bei allen Fragen im Vorfeld der Reise empfanden wir als sehr angenehm. Die Landschaft ist traumhaft und auch in der Nähe des Häuschens gibt es viele schöne Wanderwege und viel zu entdecken. Nach einigem Suchen, haben wir auch den Pfad zum Meer gefunden. Im Haus haben wir alles Notwendige vorgefunden und es war sauber und gepflegt. Allerdings empfiehlt es sich, den Kamin zu nutzen, da es bei schlechtem Wetter etwas feucht werden kann. Insgesamt aber ein sehr schönes Ferienerlebnis und Natur pur.

Waterville Wonder!

5 of 5
We had a truly marvelous stay at Tom & Sheila's vacation rental in Waterville. We enjoyed it so much so, that we chose to do nothing but enjoy the property and the surrounding area for several days, from the week we had staying on the Ring of Kerry. There are trails and walks right outside the front door ... that can be taken on the Kerry Way ... down to the beaches ... or for a leisurely stroll into town. The Ring of Kerry is also just a couple of minutes away via a very short drive from the property. The photos that are posted on Home Away do not represent the property justly. The house was very comfortable, impeccably clean and extremely well kept. The views from the home offer a fantastic view of the sea and surrounding mountains, as well as rolling hillsides and green pastures. Tom & Sheila were sweet and accommodating hosts. They were very friendly and quite helpful in supplying us with much needed info on the area, as well as assisting us in our plans for what we wanted to do and where we wanted to visit while there. Prior to our arrival, we made inquiry in regards to visiting an island we had just recently heard about - - by the name of Skellig Michael. We were pleasantly surprised to find this island was actually located right off the coast near Waterville. When we inquired, Tom strongly recommended that we go, and he even took care of booking our trip to the island, months ahead of our stay. Our visit to Skellig Michael turned out to be one of the most unique and fantastic places we have ever visited, and very likely the top highlight of our month long visit to Ireland. If not for Tom's high recommendation and helpful advanced booking ... we may have missed out on this wonderful experience all together. Overall, we enjoyed our time at this property so much so, that my wife was in tears as we strolled the front yard on our last nights stay, knowing the following morning we would be saying goodbye. If we ever have the opportunity to return to Waterville again, we would not hesitate to first contact Tom & Sheila for availability, knowing we would be hard pressed to find better accommodations or more gracious hosts elsewhere.
