Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We had a wonderfull stay with Paula. It was very comfortable and if there was anything at all that we needed (as we were travelling with our 8 month old daughter) we need only have asked Paula and she was able to provide it. The patio area to the back was lovely for breakfast in the morning and in the evening for sitting out. It was great having a timer for the heating in the apartment as we were able to manage it as and how we wanted. The area is fantastic as it has many supermarkets, pharmacies and pubs in a short walk away and we were amazed that in a busy area like Douglas how quite and peaceful it was, we were able to sleep late some mornings and were never disturbed by noises.
    We would like to thank Paula (and her family) for her hospitality and warmt during our stay.

  • We loved staying in this lovely apartment, which was clean, cozy, and very comfortable. We (email hidden) nights of sleep there during our 16 days European trip visiting three cities. Paula was extremely hospitable and generous. Even though the weather was rainy and rather cold, we felt the warmth of Cork through the kindness of Paula and her partner. The grocery stores were close-by, so we were able to prepare our own healthy meals. People were friendly everywhere, and the public transit was convenient. It was really our fortune to have selected this place for our stay in Cork. We highly recommend it.

  • It has been a great experience for me. Everything was perfect: Paula, the apartment, the weather and her dog Puppy of course (very nice and funny). Paula picked me up at the airport a Saturday night and my last day she also took me to the Cork airport, she was very friendly and attentive. The apartment is really comfortable and quiet and it's equipped with everything you need. It's also very bright and nice. The city center is about 20 minutes by bus and there are two supermarkets close to home, about 5 minutes on foot. I hope to return another time because I've been really comfortable and I've enjoyed your beautiful city. Thanks for everything and I hope the sun is shining soon.

  • If you're looking for somewhere to stay near Cork then stop looking!

    The accommodation is exactly as pictured and is very clean, cosy and quiet. Paula is the perfect host and couldn't have been more friendly and welcoming. Can't rate highly enough!

  • We loved Paula's place. It was warm, welcoming and spotless. It had everything we needed including a hairdryer, coffee and tea. Everything I need. Paula's place is located about a 15-20 minute bus ride into the city, however, that was not an issue as Paula told us everything we needed to know to catch the bus successfully! I'd highly recommend staying with Paula!

  • Paula, our wonderful host, was friend, concierge, host, and guidance counselor rolled into one. We highly recommend you stay here if you plan a visit to Cork. We found the apartment quiet and peaceful and slept like logs. We told Paula we were vegetarians and vegans and she went out of her way to stock up on some healthy foods and fed us brekkie our first morning. We certainly felt the "Craic" and loved it so much, we will be moving to Ireland in a month.

  • My stay at Paula's was for me perfect. I stayed in Cork for 1month and in all that time I did't have a complaint, the service was friendly, the place was clean and cleaned weekly by Paula. The appartment is modern and is equipped with all you need, like home from home.
    If your looking for a clean, affordable, mordern & friendly place I suggest you snape this one up while available.

  • My husband and I moved to Cork from Spain. When we saw the house in it looked pretty, clean, modern and cosy. After the first contact with Paula she was really friendly and inspired confidence to us so we rented the apartment for one month.
    The house is very well located the shopping centre and restaurants are only a few minutes away, the area is nice and quiet whit beautiful greens all over.

    Since the moment we booked Paula has been always thoughtful and from the very first day we felt at home, she has also helped us a lot and now we consider her as part of our family. We really enjoyed sharing meals at the garden or just chatting in the evenings learning about life and culture in Ireland…we have adopted her doggy called Puppy, so cute and sweet girl.

    It has been really a pleasure to live in Paula’s apartment and we highly recommend not only the apartment but also her company, she (email hidden) and a fantastic woman.

    Thanks Paula for all your support and for making what was meant to be moving-house into real and fun holidays.

  • Me and my friend stayed in the apartment for two weeks and we really enjoyed it. Paula (email hidden), she received us very cordially and was always very helpful when we had any questions. The apartment was really comfy and clean. There are good bus connections to the Cork city centre and there's also a supermarket nearby. We would definitely stay there again and really recommend it! :-)

I like welcoming people to my home and people say they like to come because they always meet interesting people!! Having travelled a lot myself my best trips have been to unusual places staying with local people rather than in hotels..My home is relaxed as is my dog (but she loves to welcome new arrivals) i like languages but have never stayed anywhere long enough to perfect any. i can speak Irish, a small bit of french and german, love to listen to other languages and like to learn a few important words of each.. please and thanks, hello, goodbye, enjoy, good luck etc..i particularly like polish and Farsi
