“Clean, quiet cottage in lovely setting”

Reviewed 21 Sep 2017

Had the pleasure of staying in mal's place, a lovely quiet cottage with nice living space and well equipped kitchen. Plenty of outside space and a 5min drive from Mobile. Ideal for a small family looking for a quiet getaway.

Owner's reply: Hi, Thank you for taking the time to write your review and for your lovely comments. So glad you found the house met your needs and that you enjoyed the quiet location. Thank you and all the best.

Have just returned from an amazing stay at this beautiful cottage, could not recommend this place enough, was spotlessly clean and had everything and more that we could have needed. The gardens and land around the cottage were fantastic and the stream in the garden was thoroughly enjoyed by our son. Our stay in Mals place really made our trip and were already looking into our next trip here!

Owner's reply: Thank you so much for your lovely comments. We are really pleased that your family enjoyed the house and the stream is always a hit with the kids! We look forward to welcoming you back to Mal's Place. All the best.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your comments. Glad you enjoyed the location which we agree is perfect to get away from city life for peace and tranquility! We would love to welcome you back in the future. All the best.

“beautiful nicely renovated cottage”

Reviewed 28 Apr 2017

We found this little place great, just enough space for us all (3 adults in total) even space for another on the sunday night as it has 3 bedrooms. The position is lovely and rural and finding it was a lot of fun the description however was spot on. We didn't miss anything, modern, clean and well kitted out, thanks Jennifer for a great and very uncomplicated stay. We would recommend this if you want peace and solitude(Shops aren't far though approx 10mins into Moville in car), oh yea the missing internet could be a problem for some, or us it was fine as we were only there for 3 nights....

Owner's reply: Thank you for taking the time to give us your comments. We are very pleased that you found the house comfortable and enjoyed the seclusion and peace that we love so much about Mal's Place ourselves when we stay. If you return to Inishowen in the future we hope you will consider Mal's Place for your stay. All the best.
