“A home away from home”
Reviewed 1 November 2013 for a stay in October 2013

Very well equipped with excellent advice provided by Simon beforehand we arrived at the house and were immediately taken in by its charm. We loved the quiet residential street it is situated in and were please to find out that a little park, shops, bus stops and some of the major sights are within walking distance.
Fresh flowers and scones made us feel warmly welcome. All in all the tastefully furnished and beautifully decorated house exudes a very pleasant atmoshere. We liked the kitchen and dining area best, so that we spent more evenings 'at home' than we had actually planned. The kitchen is fully equipped with all sorts of cooking utensils. If you feel like preparing a gourmet three course meal, no problem go ahead!
Just like the whole house the bedrooms were really cosy. Make sure though that a person who does not mind sleeping in a fairly warm room gets the one upstairs on the right. The hot water tank in one of the wardrobes works like a radiator that cannot be turned off.
We truly appreciate how thoughtfully our needs were taken care of by Simon, Tanya and Simon's Mom. They were most helpful. Communication was always excellent and all our questions were promptly anwered. Thank you very much for a wonderful stay.

“Location location location.”
Reviewed 16 October 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Our family group (ages 20-56) of up to 7 at any one time rented mid Sept to mid Oct. Most were first time US visitors to IE. The location is at junction of tourist and residential Dublin. These were very different Dublin perspectives and that is what we wanted. Walking (mostly) and buses were easy methods of getting around from this locale. House comfortable with minor challenges based on 7 using 1.5 baths and smalllish laundry. Simon was wonderful in response to the few minor issues we had. Near to park (Blessington), running (Royal Canal and Phoenix Park) and endless pubs (Aurora on Dorsett our favorite). We also took trips outside Dublin and found it easy to access train and DART stations on foot. We are very happy with our choice!

“Lovely Property with a Great House Manager”
Reviewed 5 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We had a wonderful stay in Dublin, in large part to Simon and his rental property. From the start, Simon worked to make the booking easy by clearly defining the process and property amenities. He met us at the property upon our arrival to let us in, walk us through the home, and then proceeded to walk us to the restaurant he recommended for dinner. The house was beautifully renovated and we loved the personal touches (i.e. fresh flowers, warm scones, a weekly weather report, chocolates on the bedside table, etc.). Simon also came by to say farewell and check us out of the property. It could not have been a better stay.

“A Great Find in Dublin”
Reviewed 4 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We stayed here for 5 days and loved everything, especially Simon. He met us for an early arrival and allowed us to drop our bags at the apartment prior. The home was well cared for and the amenities were exceptional. We had scones, butter, jam, coffee already stocked upon arrival. Simon was most helpful with restaurant reservations, golf tee times and tour recommendations. If we had any issues, Simon was quick to resolve them. We would definitely stay here again! We also traveled to Amsterdam and Berlin and all thought Dublin was our best experience.

“Delivers a High Quality Experience”
Reviewed 8 July 2013 for a stay in June 2013

The unit was well located, well equipped, well appointed, clean and provided for all of our needs. Simon was very prompt in dealing with some minor problems. (We couldn't get a light to come on) Simon was also very forthcoming with suggestions for dining and pubs in the area. We all agreed that we had picked a jewel when we decided to stay here. I gave some thought to hiding out in a closet and extending my stay for a few days. Simon says he sweeps through the place with his Irish Wolfhound so I passed.

“great place”
Reviewed 9 June 2013 for a stay in May 2013

The owner has good connections in the city, which is great if you want to make reservations. The house itself has an excellent kitchen, good beds an good showers. Scones and bread, as well as coffee etc. were already in the house, which was very nice indeed.
The location is in a quiet area in Dublin but has excellent connections with the airport and centre.
