  • Enjoyable place

    "Very nice place! Very nice owners! They had bread and milk and butter and fruit already there for us! Walking distance to most places and bus goes right by out front. Very comfortable, felt like home. We wish we could have stayed longer."

  • Thoroughly Delightful

    "Cooga Cottage is a perfect, relaxing vacation destination. My sister and I stayed here during the Spring and although we did not have a car we were perfectly happy to relax and enjoy Doon. If you wish to sightsee, you will need a car as the town of Doon has only a couple small grocery stores, some pubs, and a church. Everyone we met in the town was kind, helpful, and welcoming. My sister and I especially enjoyed Anne's grocery store where everyone was polite and friendly and we could buy fresh scones. The cottage itself was a complete joy to stay at as it is: - equipt with every comfort and convenience possible (and more) including a spacious bathroom, complimentary shampoo and conditioner, multiple hair dryers, excellent quality appliances including a dishwasher, well equipt kitchen, plush furniture and bedrooms, sewing kit, vacuum cleaner, and tea. - Upon arriving the cottage was clean and Tom was welcoming and had supplied chocolate treats, milk for tea, and a bouquet of daffodils from the gorgeous and meticulously kept yard (for summer visitors, the yard has fruit trees). He also gave us a tour and told us the history of the cottage, which deepened our appreciation for it. - Tom went out of his way to help in anyway possible, had labeled where things go, and had an in-depth guest book which included grocery store hours, bus schedules, emergency contacts, instructions about the trash, compost, and recycling, etc. - The price was a great deal and Tom was fair and generous with the cost of utilities. - The cottage is obviously well-cared for and its beautiful and cozy decorations make it truly feel like a home away from home. Our time at Cooga Cottage was a complete joy and we highly recommend it to any traveler who values relaxation and comfort."

  • Wonderful Stay in Dublin

    "Comfortable condo, everything within walking distance or you can just walk in front of the Hilton and pick up a cab. Owner was friendly, gracious and helpful and always prompt responding to questions. Beds are super comfortable. Honestly couldn't have asked for a better place to stay, close enough to everything but far enough away for a nice quiet place to sleep. All conveniences within a minutes walking distance, grocery, pub and coffee shop. Easy trip from the airport to the condo."

  • Breathtaking panorama

    "We spent one fantastic week in family (2 adults, 3 children). The cottage as well as the longhouse are really confortable. All the equipments were functionnal. If you like quiet and rare places, you will enjoy your stay. The sea/landscapes around are wild and beautiful. If you are lucky and not afraid of some exercise, try to approach some seals... I could spend hours to tell you how wonderful is the place but words aren't strong enough. Come and see. For us, we will return."
