About Mark Houston
We have lived adjacent to Marian Cottage and Cara's Cottage since 1999 and have been operating them as holiday lets since 2000. We have been subscribers to HomeAway and its forerunners all this time. We are usually around during your stay should you need assistance but the cottages are completely independent of our own house and we try to be as discreet as possible!
Mark Houston purchased this Cottage in 1999
Why Mark Houston chose Kinsale
Both Marian Cottage and Cara's Cottage are located in Scilly, a village-like community 7 minutes walk from Kinsale town centre. Kinsale gets very busy in peak season so Scilly offers a quiet respite from the bustle in town while being within easy walking distance. We also have off-street parking which is a big benefit as parking in town can be hard to find when the town is busy in the summer months. The Spaniard Pub and Man Friday restaurant are within 1 minute walk of the cottages; 2 of the best pubs/restaurants in town!
Minimum age of primary renter:18

We stayed in this property for our first of many visits to Kinsale. The cottage was perfect for us and we will back soon.
Quality for money
Beautiful clean cottage, filled all expectations and more.
Lovely Cottage in Kinsale
A perfect cottage in a charming town. Cara’s cottage was just far enough away from the city center to be quiet and private but only a 5 minute walk to all of the shops and amazing restaurants in Kinsale. The cottage was very clean and looked just like the photos. Mark was there to greet us and show us how things worked. Wonderful stay and I would recommend this lovely home to anyone! Thanks Mark!
We had a wonderful stay and would highly recommend Cara’s Cottage. The location is perfect, just a short walk into town, steps from the Scilly walk, and literally across the road from The Spaniard. The cottage is light and spacious and very private, with a lovely outdoor space and stunning views over the water to James Fort. Mark is an excellent host and we would absolutely stay again when visiting Kinsale!
Most enjoyable stay
As usual really enjoyed our stay. Everything in good working order looking forward to returning.
Perfect home away from home!
The house was perfect for stay in Kinsale. This is our 2nd stay with Mark. Just as we expected.
