    This really is a home from home bach, as well as being both welcoming and comfortable. Cushla's generosity and kindness are exceptional and she had even left a full water bowl for my dog to enjoy a drink as soon as we arrived. The location is lovely, and is quiet and private. I look forward to returning in the not too distant future. Lynn December 2018

  • We had such a lovely time at this beautiful peaceful beach house

    We had such a lovely time at this beautiful peaceful beach house. Cushla was an excellent host. I bought 2 of my little dogs on the trip and Cushla made sure that there were no gaps around the fenced off area that they wouldnt get thru. She even had a bowl of water ready for them for when we arrived. The place is so well stocked and has everything you would ever want in a bach. She has thought of everything you would need incase you forgotten it at home. It was so nice waking up and sitting outside on the deck overlooking the water and having breakfast while the dogs ran around the front yard. We all werent ready to go home. We feel so relaxed after staying here. There was also a dairy and takeaways 3min drive from the house. We will definitely be coming back and staying longer then 2 nights. Thank you again from us all. ??

    Everything inside and outside this house is just perfect! it has everything you need and it's a couple of meters away from the water. Thanks Cushla for letting us stay in this lovely place :) will come back for sure!

    If I was lucky enough to own my own Bach, this is how I would want it. Very comfortable, cosy and homely in a brilliant location. The hosts have been extremely helpful with their quick communication and welcoming message explaining all. Plus leaving a full pantry and fridge full of condements, if you forget to bring anything there’s a good chance you will find it here. We wish we could have stayed longer, and would definitely recommend this place to friends.
