Fantasy Island - seaview cottage

 Incredible place, stunning views, so glad we picked this place. The cottage, landscaping and gardens are just amazing. You couldn't ask for more welcoming hosts either. Awesome job, guys. 

Fantasy Island - seaview cottage

 We had a wonderful stay at Fantasy Island Cottage. Adam and Peter were fantastic hosts; always helpful and informative when needed. The cottage itself is set in a beautiful garden and the views of Tryphena harbour are simply breathtaking. Adam and Peter have set out everything you would need in the cottage - the thoughtful features, such as having extra beach towels for use, were a bonus. It was hard leaving and, suffice it to say, we would love to stay again. 

The Beach Quarters overlooking Tryphena Harbour

 Lovely location. Peaceful and quiet. Great views. Short drive to ferry. Short walk to lovely cafe and Irish pub. Quite a basic bach but comfortable.
