We had an amazing time here and it was first class from start to finish. We would like to thank the owners for the luxury penthouse and the information they provided on where to visit while there.
It is a credit to the owners and we would recomend and most definately stay again, a superb luxury penthouse.

A fabulous stay at The Waterfront Penthouse. The Penthouse is luxurious through out. The views across the ocean were breath taking from the large roof terrace. We felt very lucky to be able to stay in such a lovely place.Thank you Ken for making our weekend in Cobh so special.

“Absolutely Stunning Penthouse”
Reviewed August 18, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We loved our short stay in the 'Waterfront Apartment' and we would certainly recommend it!

The interior was fantastic - beautifully furnished to the highest possible standards with a truly stunning view of the harbour and Spike Island.

We took the kids (3 & 5) and they didn't want to leave - in fact the five year old wanted to buy the place!

The spacious balcony was a fantastic space to enjoy the view both during the morning and at night when the kids went to bed!

The self catering apartment offers comparable luxury to any hotel and the owner (Ken) was extremely helpful and generous with his time (Thank you Ken!).

If you are traveling to Cobh you will not find better accommodation - we hope to be back next year!!!

“Stunning Penthouse”
Reviewed August 13, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

The penthouse in reality is so much better than the pictures show and they look amazing. I stayed here with my husband and two young children (1 and 3 Year old). Before arriving Ken couldn't accommodate us enough ensuring that we were ok for a cot, he provided us with a big box of toys and even put a dvd in to the penthouse for us.
The penthouse itself is big, beautifully decorated and has the extra bonus of the stunning views. Everything is newly finished, clean and well thought out. The beds are really comfortable, the showers are great and everything is finished to the highest quality.
It was in a great location in that it was in a quiet area but yet central enough to walk a couple of minutes down the road to the centre of Cobh. Parking was easy enough and it was safe and secure as the garage had cameras all round it.
The view from the penthouse was stunning. We saw so many different types of boats coming and going and we watched people fishing below us as well.
An amazing place to stay with Ken being extremely helpful throughout the visit. Totally recommend this place to stay in.
