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.
