    “Firstly, the owner could not have been more friendly or accommodating, top marks.”

    Secondly, I marked low feedback on the accuracy of the listing as you have photoshopped the house to look WHITE and it most certainly is not. If you think that increases the kerb appeal that much then ask the owner to paint it white, otherwise everyone arriving starts off on the wrong foot struggling to find the right house and irked when they do. Also, the garage is 'hidden' behind the house in these photographs and is also rented accommodation, so this is misleading for anyone wanting ...

    Secondly, I marked low feedback on the accuracy of the listing as you have photoshopped the house to look WHITE and it most certainly is not. If you think that increases the kerb appeal that much then ask the owner to paint it white, otherwise everyone arriving starts off on the wrong foot struggling to find the right house and irked when they do. Also, the garage is 'hidden' behind the house in these photographs and is also rented accommodation, so this is misleading for anyone wanting solitude. As it turns out, for us, the person renting the house was fantastic, and we are now friends. I'm just saying it is better to be up-front with your clients. We loved the house, the location, the neighbour, and the owner so we were lucky, and hope to return.

About the location

BALTIMORE, COUNTY CORK

Skibbereen 6 miles.

The harbour town of Baltimore is located in Western County Cork, 6 miles from Skibbereen. This is a popular venue for water sports including sailing, windsurfing and scuba diving, the latter due largely to the number and variety of shipwrecks in the bay as Baltimore was once attacked by Algerian Pirates; reminders of the incident still remain in the form of local pub names. Why not take in a spot of whale watching, booking one of the whale watching trips, operating from the pier or take the ferry across to Cape Clear, a Gaeltacht (Irish speaking) island. You may even see dolphins at no extra cost! Take a stroll around the recently restored O'Driscoll Castle or head up towards the Baltimore Beacon - also known as Lot's Wife - one of the most notable landmarks in the area. Whether facing the wild Atlantic, or exploring the inlets and creeks of Reengaroga, Cape Clear, Sherkin and Carbery's Hundred Isles, Baltimore is a location not to be missed!It has a wonderful selection of pubs , restaurants and cafes, as does the market town of Skibbereen which is also within easy reach. A visit to the Skibbereen Heritage Centre is recommended for historians as it houses the Famine Exhibition and Lough Hyne visitors Centre.
