Very comfortable new home with all needed equipments. Wonderful place in an amazing area with a tremendous view over Kenmare river (ocean part). Very quiet place a bit difficult to find (kind of exploration, really exciting). A place you'll never forget.

We booked this house online and awendy couldn't have been more helpful, from giving us detailed directions to helpful advice for where to eat nearby. When we got to the house the views were just stunning!! Then we went inside and were amazed by the space! So much room! There were 8 adults and two children in our party and we had plenty of room for all of us. The children loved the games and toys that were there and they have never been so quiet, they loved the jacuzzi bath too!!
We spent a few evenings in cooking and relaxing in the house as it was so comfortable. It's so well kitted out that you have everything you need from all the cooking utensils to plenty of towels. It was like staying in your own holiday home with everything you need already there
We enjoyed every minute of our holiday even the weather didn't deter from our stay, we got a few glorious days and they made up for the not so good ones. The views and scenery around Kerry are breathtaking and when the weather is good the beaches are the most beautiful in the world!
I will definitely be returning to this house again and can't recommended it highly enough. :)

Absolutely loved Nestle Stones from the instant we arrived. We were party of 9 people and 2 children. Perfectly located overlooking Kenmare Bay and close to Sneem, very secluded, not to bother with your party the neighbours. Spectacular, stunning 270 degree view of Kenmare Bay. The view have to be seen to be believed. And if you have luck with the weather, you can party outside in the backyard and enjoy the view.
The house is furnished to a very, very high standard, so that you feel more like you're house-sitting someone's own home rather than staying in a holiday let. The best equipped holiday home I have ever seen. Literally all modern conditions Whatever you can imagine, it is in the house.
( Even electric knife)
The beds were comfortable; there are enough bathrooms for the party of 10-12 people.
And not the last such a reasonable price for Bank Holiday (though do be aware that you will be charged separately for the oil & electricity used at the end of your stay).
We have been in holiday homes all over the Ireland in the last 10 years and we all agree it is the best place we have stayed so far in Ireland and we will definitely recommend it to everyone
Wonderful memories! Thanks Wendy!
