This house is deceptive - looks like an end of terrace from the front, but it is so much more! Once inside, it is like a tardis i.e. much larger than expected. It is very well equipped (more than expected) and tastefully decorated. The view from the back of the house is wonderful. We had two really sunny days when we sat on the balcony for breakfast overlooking the sea - glorious! The beach is accessed by steps at the end of the garden. Great for a stroll or run. The weather was not that good but, even so, children were building sandcastles and playing on the beach.
We stayed for the last week of August - just be aware that the local schools had started back that week and the pub nearby had stopped serving food, but there were plenty of places to eat in Waterville or Caherciveen and the Arts Centre was still doing pizzas in the outside oven.
This is superb holiday rental property - worth paying a bit extra for. I have no hesitation in recommending it.
This Ballinskelligs beach front home was lovely! Steps to the beach. Super easy to find and get into (used a lock box system so we didn't have to coordinate with the owner.) Clean, updated (much more so than many of the properties I looked at on line,) internet, nice sized tv in living room and additional TV's in every bedroom, outdoor patio space, modern kitchen, beautiful views, real fireplace with wood stacked for use. 2 bedrooms had ensuite bathrooms, plus an additional 2 bathrooms. Good sized bedrooms. It's a 3 story home so need to be okay with stairs. Fell asleep and woke up to the sound of the waves. Beach had lovely white sand. 15 min drive to a very well stocked grocery store. Everything else was a bit of a drive. There's a small very well maintained vacation-RV park right next door with about 12 permanent trailers. Very very quiet neighborhood - we were there off season and enjoyed the privacy. I would highly recommend this property, it was really nice.

Perfect accommodation and perfect location. There is nothing that could be done to improve this house and situation. A little bit of "heaven on earth".

What a perfect getaway! Even the weather was amazing. A luxurious house that caters to your every need, whether sitting on the balcony or strolling on the beach at the end of the garden. Can't wait to get back there again!!
