“Beautiful rental with oustanding views”
Reviewed 8 December 2014 for a stay in November 2014

We had a wonderful stay in Cobh. We had planned to venture into Cork, but found enough to do in Cobh that we never made it there. Ken was excellent to deal with. I booked the place in less than a week's notice, and he was very responsive and flexible. We arrived late in the night, and a huge storm came in, so I was a bit concerned that it was going to be windy and stormy the whole time there. But the next morning, the sun rose and the views were outstanding. We enjoyed our breakfasts by the window, and just watching the boats go by. The place had three nice bedrooms and two full bathrooms. Everything was luxurious and clean. The bedrooms were a bit chilly for my liking, but the main area was nice and warm, especially when the sun was up. Ken kindly provided tea, coffee and milk upon arrival. We took advantage of the laundry, and he provided detergent as well. He was quick to respond to any questions we had on the place. We parked under the building, and had no problems finding spaces. The rental is a very short walk into the main area, with groceries, shops and restaurants within easy reach. We spent a day visiting Fota wildlife park, and the other day walking through the town of Cobh. A titanic musuem is within walking distance, and was very interesting to visit-would recommend. This was one of my favorite places to stay in Ireland. Such a great value. We felt like we were home while here, and just enjoyed being able to walk to places and not rely on the car each time. Kitchen was fantastic, with lots of appliances, dishes and utenstils. Would only request some bowls be added for cereal or soup. Would recommend Trade Winds and Harbour Browns restaurants while there.
Thank you Ken for sharing your lovely rental.

“Absolutely spot on for what we needed”
Reviewed 28 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Great apartment with stunning views across the harbour. All kitted out and we were made very welcome by the owner after a rather long journey. We even ventured onto the terrace -it was October- for an amazing sunset one night. Cobh is a lovely friendly place and we managed to find where my grandfather lived too.

“First class accommodation with great harbour views”
Reviewed 25 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

What can one say other than unreservedly endorse the positive views of other reviewers. The apartment is about a five minute walk from the centre of Cobh. It has off street parking - we always managed to find a space for our two cars during our eleven day stay. Access is via stairs and lift from the car park or street level - there is one short final flight of stairs from the lift. Then, the apartment itself. Panoramic views of Cork harbour from every room - just stunning, particularly at sunrise. Whether watching changes in light and colour, the clouds or in the the activity in the harbour, there was always something interesting to look at. Although we stayed in October, the weather was generally good and we spent many hours on the terrace.
The overall standard of the accommodation was high and it comfortably met the needs of four adults. Overall we had a very enjoyable stay and would certainly consider staying again. One feature we particularly appreciated were the excellent communications with the owners prior to our arrival. They were always responsive and informative. Highly recommended.

“Magnificent Cobh Penthouse”
Reviewed 2 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We stayed for a week in August 2014 and loved everything about the house. Very spacious and comfortable, with a great living room with spectacular views, everything you could need in a kitchen, and three bedrooms all with sea views. The two bathrooms were very modern and super clean.

We loved hearing the sea as we went to sleep and sitting on the huge deck overlooking the harbor. Everything you need is in walking distance - restaurants, pubs, food market, etc.

Everything went smoothly communicating about the property, from start to finish. We've already recommended it to friends, and will be happy to stay again!
