Interaction with Guests
We do not live in the house, but are always contactable via telephone and email, preferably by email.
Our housekeeper Catherine will meet you and hand over the keys to you, and show you the house and how things work.
Fantastic walks on the beaches in the area, you can start right from the end of our garden. The path leads you along the coast to the long and sandy beach at Harbour View.
The area is also wonderful for bird-watching, and dolphin and porpoise-watching at certain times of the year.
You can really get away from it all in our peaceful house, yet you are only a short drive away from the pretty towns of Kinsale and Clonakilty.
We are lucky enough to have The Pink Elephant Bar and Restaurant directly opposite our drive, so you can enjoy excellent cuisine without having to drive anywhere.

We spent one week in Edel's lovely house. The place was even better than we excepted. Can't imagine a better place for an unforgettable holiday. Edel and her housekeeper Catherine were super helpful and friendly. We are already dreaming of the second holiday in Harbour View. Highly recommended!
Very nice house with just spectacular views of the ocean. Plenty of room for our family of 5. Edel was very accommodating. Would definitely stay here again.
What a beautiful and tranquil place! Loved all about the house, very warm and welcoming on a beautiful spot. Could have stared at the view for another extra days! Edel was a great hosts who made sure everything was in order during our stay. Will definitely be wanting to go back!
Fantastisches kleines Haus mit unbezahlbarem Blick auf das Meer. Das Haus ist sehr gemütlich eingerichtet und es fehlt an nichts! Genau richtig, um mal richtig zu chillen;-)) Pink Elephant-Pub ist direkt um die Ecke fussläufig zu erreichen und ist Pflicht, weil sehr gemütlich und lecker! Edel war in allen Belangen sehr hilfreich. Absolute Empfehlung!!
What an amazing holidays we have spend in the house of Edel:
Beautiful view, amazing house very cosy and warm, practical with all the essentials. Edel was always reachable and supplied us very good information on the activities and the region!
In one word: you have to stay in the house and be near the nature!
Edel's house is one of the best designed-for-location homes we've ever stayed in. Many Airbnb's are convenient, clean, friendly and comfortable, but they aren't always stunning. This one is.
Amazingly, the pictures in the listing don't manage to do the view the justice it deserves. The windows of the house face East-South-East-ish and from the main bedroom, across the living room and then the kitchen the windows are set so that unobstructed view can be enjoyed. We watched the waves and weather come towards us across the ocean while cooking and reading in their comfortable, well-appointed, cozy home. The sea is not more than a hundred yards down the grassy hill in front, from which walking paths stretch in both directions along the shore.
It was quite cold while we were there (early December), but the house was warm despite all of the windows. Small towns nearby provide all necessities and more. The roads in the surrounding area have little traffic, so we went on quiet, beautiful runs through what seem to mostly be farms and fields.
We hope to come back before too long - can't think of a better place to enjoy time with family and books. We only used the main bedroom, but there was a second bedroom as well as a kids bedroom with bunk beds that all looked very comfortable too.
