Customer comments about Bay View, Kenmare, Ireland - County Kerry
"Lovely house with extraordinary views of Kenmare Bay. Easy access to Kenmare and a quiet road. We especially enjoyed the friendly Border Collie "Lucky" from next door and the cows in the pasture around us."
"Beautiful home, wonderful views, Well maintained, comfortable beds, Loved having 5 bathrooms. Lovely hostess who was helpful getting us settled in explained how the washing machine, dryer, dishwasher, stove, oven, TV and electrical system worked. (We would suggest that included with the explanation, we were provided with a written explanation of the house information.) We were so excited being there and seeing the house that we didn't really remember all she told us."
"Beautiful house and location over Kenmare Bay. The five bathrooms were a welcome perk. Our hostess, Maureen, was very responsive to our needs. We left a suggestion to have written appliance instructions, that were covered in the orientation, but some we forgot in our jet lag."
"Bay View was unbelievably wonderful. Quite new with all the amenities anyone could ask for. Living room, huge eat-in kitchen and a wonderful dining room with 270 degree windows. Outdoor patio so you can eat out, if you want to. Three bedrooms and five full baths so would be suitable for a family group or friendly couples traveling together. The WiFi worked well. No US news channel on any of the five TV's, though. Fantastic views over Kenmare Bay or, as they call it, Kenmare River. The trip to and from town was really no problem and any inconvenience was more than offset by the fabulous house and the really great views. Maureen, the host, lives and runs a B&B a little ways up the street. She's a dynamo and very available (gave us her cell phone number) but not at all intrusive. We've stayed in a lot of Untour apartments - Swiss chalets, Swiss apartments, a Provençal house, an Alsatian apartment. All VERY nice, but Bay View was the best."
