As always, a wonderful place to stay. The house is beautiful and very comfortable. The location is idyllic. Thank you Hannes.
Fantastic holiday home with everything you could need and a lovely host. We are a family of 3 and it was the perfect size. The location is ideal for exploring west Cork and the beach across the road is just perfect for families - shallow water and rocks to climb on with a beautiful view. We were also lucky enough to see Dolphins swimming very close up on a sea safari from Baltimore.
We enjoyed our stay. The place is very modern and clean. Quiet and well stocked. It was fun to be close to the beach. It is easy to explore the southwest part of county Cork.
Our stay way perfect! The place is super clean, the location is amazing and the host was very helpful!
Marvellous place to stay. Perfect hosts. Nearby beaches are lovely. And Easter is just the friendliest dog I've met. Thank you very much.
We are just back from a wonderful stay in Hannes' apartment. I cannot say enough about this fabulous accommodation in the most beautiful part of Ireland. The apartment was spotless, comfortable and so well equipped. My husband, baby son and I loved our time in Ballyrisode. It's a perfect spot to explore West Cork. Easter the pet dog gave us the friendliest of welcomes every morning and each time we came back from our day trips. She even accompanied us to the nearby beach! What a lovely addition to a really fantastic holiday rental. I've travelled extensively and stayed in many places and this is one of the best. The apartment itself, the location and the lovely hosts were top notch. Thanks for a brilliant time Hannes & family!
Het was een geweldig huisje met alles wat je nodig had. Er ontbrak eigenlijk niets. Het ontvangst was geweldig.
