The Lake House: Kerry

Luxurious Lake House residence in an enviable location with breath-taking views of Caragh Lake, Seefin Mountain and the Dingle Peninsula.

This is a superior family home which has been tastefully finished and fitted to exacting standards, while still retaining all its original characteristics and charm.

With a big open fireplace, tasteful furniture and original paintings, it’s the perfect place to relax and savour breath-taking views morning, noon and night.

The large kitchen is fully equipped, perfect for preparing those delicious meals - the trout you caught earlier that day or fresh local vegetables you bought in the nearby town. There’s also a long oak bench to lounge on, sip your tea and look out onto the lake.

The dining room features large floor-to-ceiling windows and antique furniture - the ideal setting for those long and lazy lunches and magical evening meals with friends.

There is also an additional open-plan kitchen, living and dining room, if your friends would like that little bit of extra space.

My whole family stayed at The Lake House for a week. When we arrived my mouth fell open with shock at how much more beautiful the view and house was compared to the pictures. What a nice surprise to have a property not only live up to expectations but to outdo them! Simply don't have the words to describe how peaceful and breathtaking the view is and the house is so spacious and well designed, fitted. My whole family are in love and we will definitely be back! Jens and Michelle were so accomodating and there was a fresh apple pie on the table when we checked in. Cannot say enough for this property and it's owners!

I've been renting holiday homes for years but the owners of The Lake House just set the bar on how to make their home feel like it was our home! We arrived late in the evening but they insisted on being there to welcome us to their home and had food and drink waiting for our arrival. It was dark when we arrived so the next morning so I rushed to the window as soon as I opened an eye, the view was more than than I could have ever expected. Just stunning! We day tripped taking in the sights while enjoying the home in the evening, even relaxed around the fireplace which was so relaxing. We really needed a relaxing vacation and Jens and Michelle's home delivered above and beyond our expectations! If I could rate it 6 stars I would. Thanks again, you really made our vacation exceptional!

An absolutely incredible house and hosts. From the moment we arrived until the moment we left, everything was completely taken care of. We stayed over Christmas and the house was suitably decorated with a tree. The fridge was stocked and we even had a beautiful goose hand delivered to the house for our Christmas lunch prep. Five Star to the tee. Everything completely exceeded our expectations.

Caragh Lake House, Jens, and his family were amazing. It was a perfect holiday, so perfect that even my 13-year old didn't want to leave... and he hates to take any vacation because it takes him away from his friends at home! The house was absolutely beautiful and had everything we needed. I wish I could wake up to those beautiful lake views every day! The Legos were a big hit with the little ones and the cozy fireplace was the perfect place to curl up next to when it was raining. We all loved exploring the lake on paddle boards and in the canoe. Thank you, we hope to come back again someday!

This house is unbelievable. Yes, the pictures are real. The house is immaculate, tastefully decorated with local art, the views are indeed as stunning as they look in the photos! The bedrooms and bathroom are luxurious! The bedding is heavenly and there are special touches throughout the house, like wireless speakers, to make your stay comfortable. The location of the house is perfect. Great hikes are available out the door and close around. The beach is nearby, and the Ring of Kerry. That is, if you want to venture out. Once you get there you may just never want to leave. Jens and Michele were terrific hosts. Communication was tops, they met us when we arrived and stopped by when we were leaving. We had no mobile phone and Jens was really accommodating to help us arrive and get in the house without calling in advance

The Lake House provides a wonderful oasis. It offers people the calm of water and the stimulation of wonderful surroundings. The house itself is large and yet cosy. People can spend hours sitting in the front room simply looking at the lake. At the same time, there are lots of walks and beaches nearby for those who want activity. Michelle and Jens are lovely hosts. They ensure that people are made welcome and then, if they wish, left to their devices. Like all fine hosts, however, they are careful to ensure that guests have everything they need. People will get great pleasure from The Lake House. It will provide many warm memories that will last forever.
