“Great house with amazing views”

Good size for our group, 3 couples with loads of kids and all were fitted in separate bedrooms, we were very happy that we didn've have to shuffle beds to suit for different families. Kitchen and dining place also was really big except for some issues with the hob because of which our self-catering plans got disturbed, given that the house is in the middle of nowhere to find any other food options. Toiletries and kitchen supplies like dishwasher tablets, bin bags etc were provided just exactly what was required, if by some acident need 1 more bin bag, you had to go to the town to get one :(. Otherwise the house, the views, heating, etc were amazing.

“Five stars is probably not enough, superb place”

We were uncertain of our arrival time so Marie (the property owner) had provided us with her number and we called when we arrived on Valentia Island. By the time we arrived at the property, Marie's mother was there with the keys. She was very helpful and talked us through the property details. Marie had also left two bags of turf for us as I'd previously asked where we could get some. I felt that this was very thoughtful and kind of her.

During our stay, we found Croi na gCnoc to be a very well equipped and comfortable property with good levels of kitchen utensils and crockery. We cooked in the house a great deal and found everything that we needed. There is a sitting area outside the house and we had a barbeque there on two occasions.

The property is in a somewhat secluded spot, which was perfect for us. However, it was only two minutes from the main road. All aspects of the property were clean. This included the bedding, the bathrooms and the kitchen. The layout of the house was an attractive one with generous bedrooms, a very large kitchen dining area and a large open entrance hall. The entrance hall has its own open fire which we used during our visit. It is unusual for such a modern property to boast such a large entrance hall and it provided an additional feeling of space to an already generously sized property.

This is a wonderful property in an idyllic location. We were also constantly impressed by how friendly and open the people on Valentia Island are. If you like the idea of being within minutes of the Atlantic and some stunning scenery, while being accommodated in a high level of comfort, this is probably the place for you.

Marie and her mother lived near by and any little details that we enquired about were answered immediately. However, the owner and her mother were not at all intrusive and we enjoyed complete privacy. I would have no hesitation in recommending this property, and its owner, as being a great way to enjoy the splendour and warmth of Valentia Island.
