From Leicestershire, United Kingdom Mar 2013

We have just returned from a 5-night stay at the Lavender Lodge in Kenmare. This is a lovely property - it is a home away from home which has been furnished to a very high standard and has everything that you could possibly need in self-catering house. Moreover, the view from this house is simply stunning!

Ann, the owner, is clearly very proud of her house and her hometown, the beautiful Kenmare. She is very thoughtful and had the fire roaring when we arrived as it was an extremely cold day! Ann is also a caring hostess - she telephoned to ensure that all is well and is only too happy to answer any queries that we may have.

We had an extremely comfortable stay here and recommend this property very highly. Many thanks from the OSullivans (UK)

From Gilbert, USA Jun 2009

We could not have been more pleased. The only bad thing is that the view is so spectacular that you may be tempted to just sit on the patio and take it in rather than actually go anywhere! Ann was a perfect close by hostess offering great suggestions, yet gave us our privacy. The town of Kenmare is charming and friendly. The local golf course was one of our favorites as well as one of the best priced. The house was beautiful and well equipped. We would definitely re-visit as well as give the highest recommendation.

From Esher, United Kingdom Apr 2008

As we drove through the beautiful countryside and approached the idyllic town of Kenmare, we were already beginning to wind down from the stresses of everyday life. Just one obstacle remained. The house. Could it possibly live up to our very high hopes and expectations? When we drew up outside this property, my wife informed me that I must have got the directions wrong, because the house was far too nice to be a rental home. Furthermore there was clearly smoke coming from the chimney and a TV was on inside. However there was the name clearly shown outside and on further inspection the front door was open as we had been told it would be. We went in still not sure we had the right place, calling out to warn any unsuspecting occupants who may have thought we were intruders. As we walked around it gradually sank in that this was to be our home for a week and we also began to properly take in our surroundings. Let me just say that the house is beautifully designed to offer every possible comfort and amenity both inside and out and also to take in from nearly every window one of the most dramatic views we have beheld anywhere in the world. We loved the house, the views and the area. We were truly amazed at the scenery, both mountains and beaches, the food and the lovely people. It was such a wonderful break and so accessible from the UK. We know we shall be regular visitors as our two young boys enjoyed the experience as much as we did. As a family we cannot recommend this house highly enough, it is wonderful and we were very sad to leave.

From Wavre, Belgium Jan 2008

It has een a wonderful experience from the beginning and untill the end of our stay.

The warm welcome we received was really exceptional with an oping fire and a dressed tablewaiting fot us.

We very much enjoyed the quality of the provided equipment and every detail of the beautiful furniture and decoration made us really feel like home with an only regret having
to live after one week.

No doubt we will come back soon

From Clarecastle, Ireland Aug 2007

Beautiful property, fabulous views, maintained to a very high standard. 1st day saw red deer in neighbour’s garden. Then one night during the week when having a glass of wine out on the patio a deer wanders in for a bit of some fresh grass. A beautiful site.
Would book again.

From London, United Kingdom Feb 2007

What can I say? We went to Kenmare for a break from the stress of city life. We had seen the pictures, but nothing could prepare us for the beauty of the location and the views - simply breathtaking.

The house is quite new, furnished, equipped and decorated to a very high standard and provides an immediately home from home in real style. We settled right in and appreciated the lovely lounge around the open fire and separate sun lounge, giving loads of space to unwind. Added to that the dining area was fantastic, and all of the rooms shared those fantastic views, along the Kenmare river valley towards the sea, with mountains both sides and countryside all around.

The bedrooms were great, all three spacious and luxurious, and with ensuites too.

There's a large garden, although we'd have used it more if it were Summer. And we even had the delight of watching a dear saunter into the garden and graze as we ate dinner on our last night.

The house is on a private road or maybe 5 other detached houses, that leads up to a open hillside, lots of walking right on the doorstep, lots of privacy.

Our only regret, we had to come home!
