Waters Edge Bantry Bay: Cork

Experience 5-Star self-catering when staying at this cedar-wood villa, an oasis of calm on the encapsulating shores of Bantry Bay. Waterfront accommodation on 1.5-acres of lush mature gardens crisscrossed by paths and dotted with ancient pines.

The 3,000sq ft home, with its red slate roof overlapping cedar boards, is just one of a handful of properties along this route to have seclusion and direct access to the water. Many of the superior rooms benefit from mesmeric views to the adjacent shoreline and shingle cove.

With many outstanding characteristics, the property has a feature south-facing terrace which truly reveals the full glory of the inlet setting. Guest can immerse and unwind in the large outdoor Jacuzzi overlooking the waters.

The timber-built design is reminiscent of Canadian chalets and lakeside homes: should you feel like arriving by Indian canoe, the task is made easier by the presence of a sturdy pontoon and jetty.
This property has a pontoon for swimming from, a private mooring and there are kayaks for your personal use.

A unique home from home ideal for family reunions or a gathering of friends

The property has been tastefully finished and equipped with all the little extras and modern conveniences that make your stay very special. There are six generous bedrooms and five bathrooms which can comfortably accommodate up to twelve guests.

An extra spacious sitting room runs along the rear of the property, with windows overlooking the bay along with adjoining TV lounge. From here there is also access to the west facing terrace, the outdoor Jacuzzi and the bay beyond.

The kitchen is warm and inviting with a large dining table. It is fully equipped and has a brand new island feature to provide additional seating. It overlooks the gardens and has a separate utility room with a guest toilet.

All beds are a mixture of king and super king size. There is one large bedroom downstairs in this section of the house with a stunning new en-shower room. Upstairs are three bedrooms –one super king sized bed with beautiful sea views, and again a new en-suite shower. A second twin bedroom overlooking the water also, a separate family bathroom, and a third large family bedroom with a super king-sized bed, and this room looks onto the extensive garden.
All bathrooms are of an exceptionally high standard.

The left wing of the house can be accessed from outside through a separate entrance and from inside, from the central sitting room area. It contains an enormous master bedroom with incredible sea views complete with its own stand alone bath. There is also a second king sized en-suite bedroom featuring a bath and wet room style shower.

I would definitely recommend this house. It was extremely comfortable, clean and well equipped. The garden is gorgeous with lovely seating areas and a bbq. The hot tub is wonderful and we had great fun with the kayaks. The area is lovely with loads to see and do. We will definitely be back. I wouldn't change a thing!

Don't hesitate to book this rental! A short drive from both Bantry Bay and Glengarriff kept all 11 of us busy, but we also needed a full day to enjoy the home. While no one took advantage of the kayaks (next time!) we loved the hot tub, big common areas, gorgeous gardens/landscaping (pictures can't capture it!) and the views! Absolutely spectacular!

The house is amazing, just stunning, beautiful view, a lot of space, its cozy and worth a stay. Annette who welcomed us is very kind and helpfully. Marie we didn't meet but her help over the phone was very nice.
