Absolutely Stunning!

  • 5 of 5

Wow, just wow. The Eco-House surpassed our expectations. The house was beautiful, clean, gorgeous, and satisfied the needs of our family of four very nicely. It is important to know that it is very out of the way, and you have to drive pretty far for excursions or even a grocery store! But the house had all the touches of home and we loved it. The notebook with daily excursion recommendations was priceless, we felt like real locals! The pub at the bottom of the hill had some of the best food we had the entire trip. The views were picture postcard perfect. We highly recommend Eco-House for families or a romantic getaway.

Amazing house with lush garden

  • 5 of 5

We had a great one week stay in Eco House. We loved the house's architecture and atmosphere. It has everything you need. The large garden with its thick green grass and its views are just wonderful. The pool is large but was quite chilly even in August.

The contact with the owners was very pleasant.

Besonderes Haus in traumhafter Umgebung

  • 4 of 5

Ein besonderes Haus in wunderschönrr Lage, sehr gut für Familien geeignet! Der große, mit sehr schönen Blumen bewachsene Garten, eignet sich sehr gut zum relaxen und für etwas größere Kinder zum Spielen ( Pool ). Das Haus ist ein wirkliches Zuhause und seine Architektur machen es zu etwas aussergewöhnlichem! An der Ausstattung gibt es nichts zu bemängeln, es ist absolut alles vorhanden! Und die Vermieterin reagiert sofort auf Anfragen. Ein Stern Abzug für die Sauberkeit, die könnte verbessert werden.

Fantastische Lage, Entspannung und Luxus

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren für 10 Tage Gäste im Eco-House, und haben diese Zeit sehr genossen.

Das Haus entspricht den Erwartungen aus dem Internet, es ist luxuriös und doch gleichzeitig sehr gemütlich, geräumig und bietet Entspannung pur. Die Lage ist wunderschön, man kann den Atlantik vom Haus aus sehen, und das Haus liegt fernab der Küstenstrasse. Da die Lage nicht zu weit westlich in der Sheep's Head Halbinsel ist, sind die Wege zu den anderen "Rings" kurz. Die Wandermöglichkeiten hier sind fantastisch. Der Pool macht Spass (auch wenn er ein wenig kühl ist), die Küche bietet alles, was man für ein leckeres Essen benötigt, und mein Lieblingsplatz war der Wintergarten - ideal zum Frühstücken oder entspannten Lesen, während man die Welt um sich herum geniesst.

Kurzum - wir kommen gerne wieder, und können dieses Haus absolut weiterempfehlen. Vielen Dank an unsere nette Vermieterin!
