About this listing
BRAND NEW to Airbnb. A piece of heaven on the side of a hill with views to die for. Two bedrooms with beds for 7 people. As well as a cot bed and two extra double air-mattresses, both on request if a larger group. Only up the hill from both Baltimore and the famous Lough Hyne Nature Reserve a beautiful walk away . A short boat trip to both Cape Clear Island and Sherkin Islands. A great base for seeing all West Cork on both land and sea. :) Everyone comes back :)
Cedar Boathouse is located on a 6 acre site along with our family home. A unique timber framed and well insulated house on the side of a mountain overlooking the islands of West Cork. With a larch plank finish on the outside and cedar and plaster on the inside. We are family friendly and provide stair gates, a cot bed, a high chair and an additional double mattress on request. Animals are welcome and have a porch area of their own.
The boathouse is nestled in the beautiful countryside of West Cork and surrounded by lovely walkways and islands with its very own picturesque pond in the garden. The enclosed pond is full of life with anything from frogs to otters and dragon flies to ducklings depending on the time of year. We boast some of the best restaurants and coffee shops in Munster and all a short drive away with Baltimore only 2km down the hill!
Babysitting and taxi services available on request.
Interaction with guests
As little or as often as you like. We are happy to advise and set up excursions for you including whale watching, kayaking, diving, thrill boat trips and much more.... And we will guide you to the best beaches on land or sea!
Simple! We live in a slice of heaven with breathtaking views (see photos) where no matter what the weather there is loads to do and lots of interesting places to visit close to the little fishing village of Baltimore. The village is steeped in history and peppered with great pubs and restaurants. Baltimore is at the mouth of Carbery's Hundred Isles with regular ferries available to Cape Clear, Sherkin and Heir Islands. Boat hire also available to visit your very own island with secluded beaches.
Will need a car/bike/hot air balloon unless you are an avid walker as the village is 2km but there is also a local taxi service available.
Other things to note
If you need a babysitter or a lift to or back from the pub feel free to ask. If we can we will help you out. :)
Our rules are simple. You must have the best time ever and not want to leave.
We will do everything we can to help you in this goal so feel free to ask. :)
We charge per person here no matter what the age so even if you have a child,two or under, you will be charged per head by us like all other sites. We put a lot of extras for young kids into the boathouse from stair gates to buggies, high chairs to toys and feel it's well worth it.
Guests are free to smoke outside where sand ashtray is provided.
Pets have a hall of their own and are not allowed on furniture or in the bedrooms.
Pets are the responsibility of their owners and should not be left alone in the house as the house is so open plan it may lead to unwanted damage.
We would ask that you do a general clean up as we currently only charge a minimal cleaning fee.
Married with 3 kids, 2 friendly dogs who love their 2 pet cats. Also have 2 rescue ponies who help keep the grass cut.
Love the great outdoors on both land or sea and a few social night mixed in.
Will give all the advice on thing to do around the area or will stay well out of your way :)
Looking forward to meeting new friends.
