On a hill overlooking the estuary is our sanctuary: 'Amárach' -a beautiful family house which accommodates 9 and an adjacent detached cottage which sleeps 2 (+2). Surrounded by semi-tropical fruit trees, grasses and flowers, bathed in sun, embedded in a micro-climate teeming with wildlife it is a magical place. The house is well equipped with a modern kitchen (with unforgettable views over the inlet and beach), television, DVD player, and an audio hifi system. A fabulous deck with sunbeds sweeps around the house affording magnificent uninterrupted seaand lagoon views. There is a lovely loggia for al fresco dining – perfect for the sundowner after the evening swim and stroll back from romantic Moon Bay. Visitors have free use of the Bentley. Sadly this is not a limousine but a good ole piano! Covered parking is available to the rear.
'Tara' is the adjacent self-contained cottage. It has been newly refurbished for 2010 and has a fully-equipped kitchen, double bedroom and a large sofa bed. There is a television for playing DVDs and CD/radio. Outside the cottage has its own decking with sunloungers overlooking the magical view of the Mogareeka inlet.
In the pretty garden on the hill facing the sea, there are secluded sunbathing areas and a restful bower with hammock for reading and relaxing. The air is full of birdsong and the scent of jasmine, lemon, orange and lime trees completes the picture of wholesome serenity.
