Durrus house description

It has five beautifully appointed bedrooms (sleeping ten persons), consisting of three double bedrooms rooms looking out over the bay (each with a king-size bed), one has an en-suite bathroom with bath, power shower and WC. There are two twin bedrooms located at the rear of the house with two further bathrooms, each with a separate bath, a power shower and WC. All bed linen is pure cotton. We also have a travel cot and a high chair.

The living area consists of a generous open plan living/dining/kitchen area with American style fridge/freezer, blu ray 5.1 surround sound, 46' LED flat screen TV, iPOD dock, leather sofas, dining table to seat 10 and log burner. Wifi is free of charge and covers all areas of the house. Separate utility room with washing machine/tumble dryer and dishwasher. Sun porch (also doubles as children's playroom). All of the living and sleeping accommodation is on one level. There is a large table with benches on the outside terrace. The house is spacious and very well equipped. .

In front of the house is almost an acre of lawn with direct access to a shingle/slate beach and sea waterfront - buckets and spades are provided for crab catching! .
