Very nice and comfortable.

  • 4 of 5

We love our stay. However, it would have been helpful to have a manual with instructions. In addition, basic amenities were missing, like soap , paper towel, large garbage bags.Otherwise the place met all of our needs.

Ease in a foreign land.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed this home on our family vacation in many ways. It was very clean and spacious. It was helpful that a grocery store was in walking distance. Everything worked well and any unfamiliar utilities were explained easily by Fergal. We would certainly rent it again!
