About Ann Marinovich

We live in the Los Angeles area.

Ann Marinovich purchased this cottage in 2002

Why Ann Marinovich chose Skull

We discovered the beautiful town through friends who invited us to stay with them during a family vacation to Schull. The town is small, yet there is a lot to do. The area is great for relaxing. It is also a great location for family vacations, as there are so many varied activities within walking distance from the cottage. The cottage is within a quarter of a mile of the sailing school, which offers sailing lessons.

What makes this cottage unique

We love our cottage because it has amazing views from the living room, kitchen/dining area and master bedroom. We also love the fact that it is so close to town, yet it far enough away from the hustle and bustle to provide for tranquility and privacy. Viewing the moon on the water is very beautiful and gives a feeling of romance. The large grassy area in front of the cottages is a plus for children wanting to play outside.

Owner's Response: Sean, thank you for your review and comments. All of the issues you raised in your review have been addressed and repairs made. It is important to us that our guests have great experiences at our cottage. In speaking with our property manager, we found that she was not aware of any of the issues other than the upstairs window. She called for repair immediately upon learning of it. She also was not aware that your car had been bumped. We are one of 15 cottages on the property and do not know who ran into your car. Because we offer a self-catering vacation cottage, we do not provide soap, etc. However, we have decided that we will provide a small starter kit for guests in the future. We encourage our guests to contact the property manager when needing additional towels and mats or if they notice that repairs are needed at the cottage.

The cottage is situated in Schull Harbor in West Cork. Schull is home to a Planetarium and sailing school and has a vast assortment of water activities within 1/2 mile of the cottage. Many fabulous walking paths can be found near the Cottage and around the village. Mt. Gabriel is a beautiful backdrop to Schull and offers good terrain for hiking and hillwalking. Island trips are available by ferry from Schull to Cape Clear and Fastnet. It should be noted That water sports and boat trips to the Island are seasonal.

The town has pubs that offer great food, entertainment and dance lessons. Local restaurants offer traditional irish cuisine in addition to a variety of foods with international flavors. Many lovely gardens are located in nearby towns. Golf courses are located within 8 miles of the cottage in the towns of Bantry and Skibbereen. The famous Old Head golf course in Kinsale is about an hour and one-half away. Kinsale is also known as the gourmet capital of the Republic of Ireland.

The Ring of Kerry, Beara Peninsula and Mizen Head are easy day trips from Schull. The town of Cobh, home to the Titanic Museum, is absolutely beautiful and about a two-hour drive from Schull. There are many unique, beautiful towns to visit in surrounding areas.

Schull has a wonderful farmer's market on Sundays (seasonally).

There is a leisure center with a large indoor pool in Bantry.
