Lovely, comfortable cottage. We were a group of 6 adults, a baby and 2 dogs and we immediately felt right at home in Elgin. The cottage feels like a proper family home rather than a rental. We loved that we could all fit around the kitchen table to eat together. Thanks for a lovely stay!

Maria was there in person to meet us and had a lovely bottle of wine ready for us to share. The place was very clean and very well equipped. The cottage has loads of charm and one of the best views in the Cove of the bay right in front of the house. Storage heaters and a real fire kept the house warm and cosy. Maria's home is in a great location for walks to the Beacon and surrounding area as well as convenient for the pub and harbour. A real find for those interested in sailing and railways - quite an impressive library of books to be found on those subjects and many other good reads making nights in as enjoyable as entertaining nights out! Thank you Maria!

Maria's home is charming, quirky and cozy! We had 6 women staying for the week and we all had enough room, enough towels and a very comfortable bed for all of us! Maria has a huge table in the kitchen/dining room and we all sat around and played games, cards and just talked. There is a lovely sitting room and sun room so there was also enough space to spread out if we needed. Baltimore is a charming little village with pubs, restaurants and a market all within a very easy walk. Maria is easy to communicate with and responded quickly if we had a question. I was a bit concerned with parking but we had two cars and were able to park right out front the whole week. The kitchen has everything you need to make full meals. Highly recommend the walk up to the beacon it is beautiful. Maria thank you for a great week, I wish we could have stayed longer.

An absolute fantastic House. We were realy happy to be there. So much space and the open fire was a dream. Baltimore is a lovely little village, with nice pubs, beautiful countryside and some activities around (like whale watching!). The Internet was super and the beds very comfortable. I hope I will stay there again in some years!

Hostess left us bottle of wine and flowers as greeting, also chatted a bit before departure. House is charming as shown in photo, and garden is lovely, could be perfect. Beds are comfortable and linen of good quality. Kitchen contains every imaginable implement, and wifi works well. Location is great, on water`s edge and short walk from village. Owner responded quickly to any issues.

Maria responded to any questions we had in a very timely manner and made accomodation for us due to our late arrival. The house was so beautiful inside and out with the nautical theme and gorgeous roses (the biggest I have ever seen!) The kitchen was the most well equipped of any house with any cooking utensil you could imagine. The linens were soft and luxurious. The excellent bottle of wine and fragrant vase of roses let us know we were welcome. We spent many hours enjoying the bright and cheerful sunroom with the large collections of books. The sitting room was our nighttime retreat in front of a cozy fire. We had the most amazing time exploring the countryside and view of the cliffs and ocean up the road behind the house. The town of Baltimore was small and quaint with a pub and restaurant as well as a small store. We found many treasures to take home from local gift shop down by the ferry with handcrafted items from artisans on nearby Sherkin Island. We did need to travel to the larger town of Skibberreen about 15 minutes by car to find a larger market,gas station, and bank. We enjoyed our stay at the Cove so much we hated to leave and are already planning a return visit.

I am an outgoing, sociable type of person who enjoys the best things in life, family, friends, entertaining and peace and quiet so a bit of a hybrid really.
