Waters Edge Bantry Bay: Cork
Exceptional cedar-wood villa providing an oasis of calm on the encapsulating shores of Bantry Bay. This deluxe self-catering rental is set on a secluded 1.5-acre site 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 memorable views to the near 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. The timber-built design is redolent 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.
In all there are six bedrooms and five bathrooms which can comfortably accommodate up to twelve guests. What is truly unique about this very special property is its location on the water with a private pontoon providing direct access to the Bay, mooring for a boat, a large outdoor Jacuzzi overlooking the water along with the privacy provided by the 1.5 acres of stunning gardens.
The property has been re-decorated and modern comforts updated so that it is now a very special home-away-from-home ideal for family reunions or a gathering of friends.
