The house is so beautiful! Very spacious and all the rooms, beds and bathroom were lovely and clean! The house is modern, artistic and very open spaced. Beds were comfy and there were towels left for us. The location wasn't great! Not very close to the town and we needed to get taxis. Communication from the host was quite poor. However, we didn't really need much contact with her. When we arrived, we let our selves in and there was a very unreadable note from the host - more information would be helpful. Please note, there is a cat! Which you essentially have to cat sit for your stay and feed. However there was no food left for the cat!! Overall, we really enjoyed our stay but just a few things to note for future guests :)

Beautiful house, ideally situated in a quite family estate close to the town. Perfect for families.

Great house in a good location. Perfect for families. The kids loved playing with the cat. Was great to be able to cook meals and we enjoyed relaxing downstairs once the children were asleep. Comfy beds, good shower, cosy living room and massive kitchen with big Windows to let the sun stream in. What's not to love? Definitely recommend.

In a nutshell ......you are technically paying to stay in someone's house with them....not ideal!

Thank you for your constructive feedback. We will endeavour to be more transparent in the future. Hopefully your feedback will prove to inform future guests of the runnings of this house. This will, we hope lead to a more positive experience than yours. Apologies for any inconveniences you experienced in Eltins wood. Hope you enjoyed the other elements of your holiday in Kinsale. Kind Regards, Karen & Alex (& Twinkle the cat).

Our stay here was fantastic. The location is great! We felt extremely safe, especially important w/ toddlers in tow. The grassy park across the street was a great place to run around and play. The house was fantastic. Our toddlers loved the children's book & toy selection. Netflix was a nice touch. The laundry dryer was an added bonus that was lacking in our other Airbnb's in Ireland. The dishwasher was nice to have as well. Take note, the silverware drawer is hidden underneath in the cabinets below. It took us more than a few embarrassing minutes to find them. We wholeheartedly recommend staying here.
