“best weekend ever”
Myself and my family have just returned home from the most amazing weekend spent at the White Strand Beach House in Buncrana.while attending a family wedding nearby.The house was a perfectly located home-from-home for us..We had everything we needed in a clean and comfortable property..just a walk from the wedding venue and the best beach in Donegal.. and the weather was just the icing on the cake..my girls-(all 3 of them!!)- did not want to leave..it was a struggle to get them packed into the car..Anita was wonderful..she couldn't have done more for us..we were made to fell so welcome..it really was a wonderful family weekend and we certainly do intend to return in the very near future..Thank-You Anita.
Owner's reply: I am delighted that you all had a wonderful time at our beach house. It is indeed as close to the hotel as one of the bedrooms on the far wing. Thanks for your lovely words and of course for the bouquet of flowers which were unexpected and unnecessary. I do love when my clients leave happy. Hopefully see you all again soon. Anita ;)
“It was a wonderful stay!”
My wife and I and our two adult daughters stayed in the White Strand Beach House in Buncrana which was great! Our girls each had a bedroom and at the end of each day, we would spend time all together in the family room with the fireplace - my favorite room! On a previous visit to Buncrana, we had stayed in a hotel around the corner, however, this was more fun to be together and we were able to have family over one night. The price was less than what we would have spent on 2 rooms at the hotel. Our host, Anita, was gracious and wonderful. Loved the house! We would highly recommend.
Owner's reply: Loved that you all enjoyed the house aswell as the cosy irish fire! So happy to be of assistance. The property does have a great location. Would love to see you all return in the future. Thank you and best wishes to all the family, Anita
“A comfortable and well-equipped family house”
House positioned in a quiet area with easy access to the town of Buncrana, the beaches at Lisfannon and the Inishowen Peninsula. The house is comfortable and well-equipped and Anita looked after us well. The welcome pack of food essentials was particularly well received. Many thanks.
Owner's reply: Your lovely comments are very much appreciated. We do agree that the property has a fantastic location to explore Buncrana's Town and beaches. Delighted that you all had a pleasant stay :)
“Nice place, but watch out for hidden extras”
This is a nice little cottage, and Anita was a great host and quickly dealt with any issues we had. Firstly, Anita let us arrive at the cottage very early, about 8:30am when others may not have, so that was great. We initially had a few issues with the wifi, but Anita fixed that and it was no big deal. The only issue we had was with the Electricity and heating. For the electricity it is a payment card that guests are expected to go to the garage and top up, as a prepayment for use, the minimum being €10, which we wouldn't have fully used in the 3 days we were there. And for the heating there was a coin machine that you have to put €1 in for the heating to come on for 45 minutes. After raising some issues with Anita, she topped up the electricity for us and left us some € coins for the heating, but we still used another €10 ish more ourselves, due to the time of year we were there. I think we wouldn't have had a problem with the additional charges if they'd been on the advert and we weren't surprised with it, managing expectations and all that, although I think those additional charges should be factored into the rental price and the top up meters removed. Also, if they are there I think clear instructions on how to use the top meters should be stuck to the wall next to them, as we lost a couple of € putting them into the meter while it was switched off and the credit not being counted. These issues aside its a great little cottage and Anita is a very welcoming and helpful hostess. I would recommend the cottage, but wouldn't recommend staying in the winter and early spring months as it gets very cold and can cost a lot to heat.
Owner's reply: Thank you for taking the time to review our property. We take all our feedback very seriously. I am really disappointed that you felt mislead by having to pay for electricity and heating as it is clearly stated on the tariffs section of my advert that meters are installed aswell as on the booking form you would have received from me. It is fairly standard that these measures are accounted for on top of the rental price as its only fair to each individual customer. As with car hire the petrol is extra on top of the rental price. We feel that its better to charge as you go rather than factor it in to a set price as each individual is different. The €1 for 45 mins of oil just is set at todays current oil rates and is not a money making scheme at all. I will arrange an instruction manual within the property to describe coin meter usage better if it helps others in the future. Thank you for your comments and we hope to see you again. Anita :)
