About Margie or Alana

We moved to Ireland in 2006 but fell in love with Kinsale in 2000. We are both educators, Alana at the doctoral level is a PhD professor and mentor and Margie works with younger learners. We own and manage our rental apartment and love being active locally. Alana grew up in Denver, Colorado and Margie was born and raised in San Francisco, California. We come from large extended families and love to play, travel and explore as well as work and participate in our local community.

Margie or Alana purchased this apartment in 2003

Why Margie or Alana chose Sleveen

We purchased this property because of its location. We wished to have an apartment for family visitors as well as for paying guests. Over 1400 people have stayed in the apartment since we opened our apartment as a 'home away from home' in March 2006.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment is homey, exceptionally clean and very well fitted, in particlar the kitchen and living room amenities. It has all the extras of a home - wifi, books, dvds, satellite tv, stereo, fireplace and games as well.

Beautiful apartment in great location

  • 5 of 5

We spent 8 days in this apartment and absolutely loved it. It is very well equipped, had everything we needed, down to soap, shower gel, washing up liquid dishwasher tabs, washing machine tabs, paper towels, toilet paper, coffee, tea, etc. Our 13 and 9 year old boys enjoyed it, too, they had a room each. The location is perfect, very close to restaurants, shops, pubs, all within walking distance. Margie had a bottle of wine and some biscuits ready for us when we arrived, which is a very nice personal touch. There is a folder in the apartment with very detailed explanations of how everything works. The apartment is very clean, we would highly recommend it. Thank you.

First, Margie and Alana are incredibly friendly, quick in their communications, extremely welcoming, and always accessible. Secondly, the property location is centrally located in the heart of it all. Park the car and walk everywhere! Third, the property is very clean, welcoming, and family friendly. We had an incredible experience we will remember for a lifetime! Thank you Margie and Alana! The Larkins hope to be back to Kinsale and would love to stay in your apartment again!

Enthusiastic 5 Stars - perfect launching pad to explore southern Co Cork

  • 5 of 5

The Kinsale apartment is charming, beautiful, and perfectly situated in the seaside town of Kinsale. We loved Kinsale, found great music and fantastic food every night, and the town, as well as the Kinsale apartment, were the perfect place to stay for three days while we explored County Cork and various points north and west. The Cozy Cafe below the apartment is excellent and welcoming, and most everything in central Kinsale - from high-end seafood restaurants, to rollicking pubs, to grocery stores, bookshops and cafes - was within a 5-10 minute walk. There were five in our party, and while the apartment was a little tight in a few of its unique corners (like everywhere else in Europe compared to the U.S.!), we had plenty of space for each of us to go to our separate corners when necessary (especially nice to have the 2.5 baths), and to convene for a pint or a glass of wine in the living room at the end of the night to recap our day. Margie was a terrific host, very responsive and helpful, and I cannot recommend this property enough!

Quiet and well equipped. Second bedroom is a little tight for two people but manageable.

Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay here for three nights. There were four of us - my husband and I and his mother and stepdad. Lovely to have a sitting area, full kitchen, two full bedrooms ensuite plus a full bathroom downstairs for four people. Still left the twin room if you were to have another person. The location couldn't be better. Adjacent to the City Centre and everything is walkable. Very convenient to have the Cozy Cafe right below as well. Margie and Alana provide very clear and helpful information about the apartment and the area. Including personal service if you have any questions or challenges. Absolutely recommend this apartment!

So great

  • 5 of 5

I can't begin to explain how amazing this place was. Let me start at the beginning. Communication was excellent. Margie answered all my questions quickly and also was so kind to send me updates the week before, as Ireland was in the middle of a blizzard. Those updates helped us pack and prepare. When we got there, a phone was left for us to communicate with Margie, this was amazing since we did not have to pay the international roaming charge. She actually came to the apt and showed us everything and also recommended places to eat and visit. We had an amazing time in Kinsale and wished we could have stayed longer. The town and the people were above and beyond. We were treated like locals. One day we took the bus to Cork and were able to also ride to Blarney, this was so convenient. The apt was clean and had everything we needed. Such a beautiful place. Also, the cafe downstairs is amazing. We were there everyday and I did not regret a single thing I tried. Do not hesitate booking this apt, you will not regret it!!! Thank you so much for a great first Ireland experience.
