I'm an artist with a passion for the sea and gardening. My paintings and drawings are displayed in our gallery, as well as the works of selected local artists.
Seaside Cottage is piece of heaven. It was my second time staying there so we were lucky to see the wonderful garden in full bloom. We had breakfast every morning on the picnic table looking at the sea. A beautiful house in a beautiful place.
I recently stayed for the second time at Seaside Cottage and once again it was a lovely experience - peaceful, welcoming, comfortable and a wonderful location on Sheep's Head Penninsula with glorious scenery outside your door and close to Bantry and the other fabulous areas of West Cork. I hope to be back soon!
We had a wonderful stay in Anabel's cottage. Fantastic location, perfect for relaxing or exploring Ahakista. The cottage is lovely and quirky and is right beside Anabel's craft gallery and cafe. We would definitely recommend this place and would love to go back again.
We had a wonderful time at this gorgeous cottage. So pretty and peaceful, set in beautiful surroundings. Annabel, Klaus & Lisa are lovely friendly people & made my son & me really welcome. Thankyou!
Es war ein Zufallsfund, und was für ein schöner! Wir kommen auf alle Fälle wieder, es hat uns sehr gut gefallen. Angenehme Einrichtung, freundliche, hilfsbereite Menschen, wunderbare Gegend sowieso. Man sollte das nicht erzählen, sonst kommen am Ende noch mehr Leute ;)
Wonderful wonderful wonderful.. cosy and inspiring cottage, a feeling of a 'home' being truly and generously shared. everywhere you look theres a treat for the eyes from the wildflower print curtains in the bedroom to the great art everywhere. But its not just the cottage, the garden was a total delight, you could spend days in it and never leave, a magical discovery. We had a really memorable few days , the peninsula is stunning and so much to do, we had so little time and had to drag ourselves away from the cosiness of the cottage and garden to explore. Also you can nip into Annabels gorgeous café next door. I would get in my car right now and drive there for the Orange almond cake!! Annabel and Klaus are lovely, very welcoming and mellow. They have created a really special place here, this is a unique and deeply felt experience, one that will leave you on a high, pretty much wallowing in the creative vison and dream of these artists without the hard work they are putting in. you'll be one of the lucky ones if you make it. I know its a place we will go back to time and time again.... If its not booked solidly for ever more as I suspect ot might be!
Great house and location. Loved the view from the bedroom windows upstairs. Lovely peaceful area with some great walks on its doorstep.
House was well equipped and the cafe next door does delicious food.
A beautiful cottage in a beautiful spot. Highlights for me were being able to see the sea from bed, the fire place - the weather wasn't so warm when we were there, so we made a fire every night - and the well-equipped kitchen - it has absolutely everything you could need to cook (I recommend stocking up at the markets in Cork or Bantry on your way down - they have great fresh fish, veg and bread and there aren't so many shops nearby the cottage). There were only 2 of us, but there is more than enough space for 4. Arranging arrivial, etc with Annabel was super easy. Highly recommend!
Beautiful house, confortable and happy, with a very enjoyable garden, and a gorgeous view.
We did enjoy our time there, the peninsula is super pretty and the sheephead way worth the ride.
Thanks for this moment spend in Ahakista.
We had a wonderful time in seaside cottage. We could not have asked for more in terms of setting and amenities. We're feeling the benefit of a very relaxed week, and we are looking forward to staying again in the near future. Thanks.
It was a real pleasure to meet Annabel and Klaus, and we very much hope to see their guest house when we next go back to Ireland. I hope they enjoyed their visit as much as we enjoyed having them to stay. There was so much common ground and lots to discuss as Annabel is a talented and engaging artist, whose work I covet! We both very much hope that we will meet again in Ireland.
It was a pleasure having Annabel Klaus and Lisa stay at Upper Swanage. We hope they had a good time and would welcome them back anytime.
Annabel was a great guest! Very friendly and respected our property. Even gave us free tickets for the event they were hosting!
It was wonderful to have them as guests, we had very nice contact, good talks and we spent some nice moments toghether, Annabel and Klaus are interesting people and it was great to have them around, thanks to airbnb I had the chance to meet them and I'm sure is the begining of a friendship, now I' m looking forward to visit them in Ireland, exelent guests, thanks Annabel and Klaus :-))
